    Literally DBry is on pace to do that hbk rebirh run

    TBH, he should only be a special attraction kind of wrestler. I'm talking Summerslam and Mania and that's it.

    WWE would ruin that reunion by teasing a Finn-AJ feud for leadership, then have the GB side with Roman and turn "face" while pandering to the crowd. Karl will talk about how much his #hotasianwife loves whatever food your city's good at cooking up.

    I really want real rock n rolla with light up jacket prince devitt back

    The Club boosted AJ's confidence and he became the best promo because of them.

    Seeing Bálor use the club to win the fatal fiveway, then get fed to brock would be fine with me



    I have never been one of those dudes. But i must wife this girl.

    I want this because it can lead to a natural feud with Jericho, and 9/10 things Jericho touches is gold.

    It's even worse because the next night on Nitro they retconned it so that Giant's belt win was considered legitimate.

    I hope it is not a big deal, but this sets up the split. I would throw a surprise team at aop. Somebody who could carry them. Somebody aop attacked. Somebody who can eat a loss.

    I would say american alpha jumping in

    But i kind of want it to be the colons

    The press conference was pretty good. Kenny was heeling it up. Said he's not yet in his final form. Also said he carried Okada. Said he didn't hit his one winged angel on okada at their last meeting.

    On njpw they have these subbed with tanahashi, kushida, and kojima

    Great news, according to Triple H, Ciampa just turned his ankle, wasn't a break or a sprain. They can still make change plans for the Takeover match if it's worse than it currently seems but as it stands now they're confident he will be able to wrestle.

    I would say he should have worn shoes instead of flip flops to a tryout

    Guys want to be recruited not go there to tryout

    AJ, Nakamura, and the Club changed how it works because they all got BIG money to go to wwe.

    I really think nakamura spent that year in nxt to settle his family along with learning where to work with the new camera men

    Camera men in wwe are underrated as far as making these guys stand out and look like stars.

    You make good relationships with production, camera guys, and the announcers they will make you look excellent

    The roll out and presentation for Nakamura has been excellent. Same with Tye and especially Finn.

    Absolute cracker of a match between Bate and Mandrews. I swear, Mandrews has been putting on CLINICS since coming to WWE. Sorry Aries, I want Mandrews to be the one to beat Neville for the CW belt.

    It's not just that. The WWE ring is larger than what they use everywhere else by a couple of feet, so certain bits of timing and positioning needs to change as well.

    The style of njpw and wwe has never been so similar

    Honestly, and i like it. Okada is the most Orton like wrestler.

    But to me besides work, the biggest thing is presence. Presence is created live, but if you have presence it will shine through on tv

    TNA has this way of destroying presence. Where really nobody looks or feels important.

    Compare 2013 AJ to 2014 AJ, he went to njpw and they made him into a star. Like all of his potential was finally reallized and showcased on a product that was great.

    Then compare 2014 Aj to 2017 AJ, wwe has this way of presenting their main guys/pushed guys as this awesome super hero.

    Look at the difference between The girls on smackdown and the girls on raw.

    Naomi feels like the biggest deal.

    I haven't watched the rest of the special because the app keeps crashing. :(

    Edit; finally watched the rest. Mark Andrews vs. Tyler Bates was OK. I liked Dunne vs Seven more

    Depends, New Japan's ring is pretty close in size (Iirc it's about 18x18 vs WWE's 20x20) but with a wider apron, there's a couple of Mexican promotions that use absolutely gigantic rings (22x22 and 24x24) a lot of which would have been converted from boxing rings so they're really stiff.
    There's definitely a conversion period in getting used to the different rings though even small changes can really throw you off.

    Foley hitting EC3 with Socko at the House of Hardcore.

    It is like it came out entirely as a hit piece on Bayley.

    Bayley sucks on the mic, as a character, and she is okay in ring

    Just like sasha they need that nxt coaching and practice to "get it right"

    Alexa surpassed Sasha and bayley. She is on that same level as Naomi, Becky, and Charlotte as far as getting who her character is.

    Sasha and Bayley have regressed because they mostly just work each other.

    Even though some reviewers hate nia, she has a presence and demeanor that both bayley and sasha lack.

    Heel turn for sasha maybe, but bayley needs something better than unsure fan girl. Just her vibe is she does not believe in what she is doing. It is killing her. She was doing better in nxt because she had this "i got it" confidence about her

    Maybe she needs more encouragement? But both her and sasha look like girls playing wrestler. As opposed to becky or naomi who come off as wrestlers wanting to be the best.

    The adjustment is working on tv as opposed to working in front of nobody

    The agents in LU are WWe/wcw guys with a knack for presenting the matches way better than any company

    Too bad matt striker and vampiro are doing commentary. I hate striker breaking kayfabe "i'm marking out bro!" Stfu

    Like watch ricochet pre and post dragon gate, and see how fast tozawa assimilated to wwe

    Dragon Gate films a lot like wwe, hard cam, big spots set up for that dramatic camera work, and that basic drama and character work from top tier guys

    The lower tier workers do the spot fest, and the main event is your wwe main event of dramatic kickouts after finishers

    This is interesting/disappointing. Jericho was supposed to win the Universal title at 'Mania right until "plans changed" because of "the Goldberg factor".
    I was supposed to finish up after WrestleMania, that Monday afterwards. About, I don't know, December maybe Vince (McMahon) called me in, he had a big idea. I can probably say this now: the original idea as things change all the time, exclusive for Busted Open, was for me and Kevin Owens to work at WrestleMania, for me to win the title, and then to lose it to Brock in Sacramento at the next pay-per-view, which was April 30. So when you get presented with that idea it's like 'well, sure, of course I'll stay for that.' Then, as things go, the Goldberg factor started and things changed his mind. At that point I was already locked in for the extra month, doing another month with Kevin Owens, which was the way to do it anyways. My plan was not to finish up on SmackDown on a Tuesday and go straight into rehearsals on a Wednesday. It was not supposed to be that but sometimes that's how it works.

    2014 AJ was so good compared to his latter years in TNA.

    I like how WWE made the springboard forearm a legitimate finisher , despite it just being a signature move for years.

    It's definitely a good visual .
