The Official Professional Wrestling Thread
« on: August 04, 2021, 10:45:18 PM »
I didnít see one, so Iím starting one
Iím a diehard wrestling fan, and I know that thereís some other fans here too (has to be, itís mostly a sausage fest here)

A couple topics to talk about
The Bray Wyatt release.
One word: moronic


Matt Cardona (Zack Ryder) in deathmatches, a video game scenario come to life. Iím still baffled by that one

I started a wrestling thread years ago, it might still exist somewhere on here, but definitely welcome to a new one. WWE is a damn shit show right now.

I could've done without The Fiend, but Bray Wyatt the cult leader from the swamp with Harper and Rowan was bad ass. The firefly funhouse had some great moments too.

Surprisingly, the two things I actually like are fucking Reginald and Baron Corbin.

AEW on the other hand....... so much good going on over there. Jericho and Juventud last night was OK. Judas Effect off the top rope was really nice.

Cody Rhodes got his fucking head kicked off last night and it was great.

WWE is a joke nowadays, I just keep up with news and watch the old classics on Peacock and DVDs. I keep up with AEW news as well but where I have no cable (streaming services only) I cant watch weekly unless they have some kind of TNT on demand

Itís pretty easy to find a livestream of them online somewhere when they air each week, thatís how my brother keeps up. Just gotta search around a little bit.

I was always more of an old-school ECW and FMW guy myself, but I fuck with AEW and shit here and there, as well. Moxley has been dope since his indie/deathmatch days.

In the late 80s, early 90s, my great grandmother used to watch WWF on her TV in the kitchen, while eating oreos, yelling and cursing and the wrestlers on screen.

I actually just read Bret Hart's book and am more of a fan after doing so. I watch some AEW, NJPW, and check out matches of smaller promotions from around the world. It's only been in the last year that i've started watching again since the mid 00's and i'm loving it.

Like skateboarding, there's just so much stuff to keep up with if you're a die hard fan. I'm appreciating it much more as an adult. What a unique, hilarious, and beautiful art form.

I watch everything on this website, aew, occasionally nxt and bigger wwe ppvs. Aew ppvs are hit and miss though, sometimes theyíll get taken down pretty quick.

I haven't watched WWE since Eddie Guerrero died (RIP). I was big into the independent scene (ROH, PWG, IWA-MS) for a while but haven't checked it out in a long time.

That being said, last night I got baked as fuck and watched some old Japanese matches I hadn't watched in 15 years.

You want some good matches ? Watch the matches from the Misawa/Kobashi rivalry. Some of the best and stiffest matches of all time. These guys were built different.

Just wanted to second the love for AEW and for rewatching classic matches on peacock. Anybody else have any good old merch that brings up memories? I still have my LOD what a rush hat and Bret Hart sunglasses (see post my fit thread) from when I saw wwf live as a kid. Still fits!

I agree with some of the sentiments about wwe. I followed them pretty consistently around 2017, but the constant insider news about wrestler frustration, dissatisfaction from fans, the tendencies to drop the ball and capitalize on certain wrestlers by playing to their strengths... it got tired after awhile. Vince is considered the stalwart and know-all for what's good, but really he's just one guy, and his arbitrary decision making and restrictive style on creativity and everything makes it sucks a lot. They still do some things that are great and captivating though, like this segment with Finn vs. Reigns from last night:
 
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0gCNP5Gy4hs

...it was pretty simple and got me psyched in a way that AEW promos aren't always able to. I mostly just feel bad for wwe talent -- very expendable. They're all just all trying to appease the guy at the top of the company. I haven't been watching enough of anything to really get a good feel, though.

This aew twist-segment from this week was also pretty good. But I preferred the one with Finn just cause he's in the spotlight again.

I watched the latest Dynamite last night and that Cody promo was fuckin weird, like most of them. I don't get how much is a character (and if so what that character is meant to be exactly), or whether he just really thinks he's that much of a big deal. It's odd.

Cody is definitely a mark for himself. Not hating, but he really does think heís that much of a big deal. Like his 5 minute long entrances through the middle tunnel with the whole nightmare factory. But the crowd eats it up so more power to him

i tune in to wwe every now and then and will watch PPVs on Peacock if i'm home and bored.

AEW wasn't really my thing when it first started but it's growing on me a lot.

i did however go to a wwe live show a couple weeks ago and after a few beers that was the most fun i've had in a while. Floor seats were only 50 bucks and the crowd down there got you hyped up.

masturbatory is the word. At first I thought it was a gimmick where he'd get more and more arrogant with the entrances / promos etc until he eventually started to get heat from the crowd and turn heel, but seems he actually does just think he's some sort of god.

Missed Rampage but first thing I did when I woke up was watch the replay. What a pop. Daniel Bryant/Brian Danielsonís pop will be huge too. AEW is just blowing WWE out right now. Only good thing going for them is Roman Reigns.

Very happy to see this. So before I got into skateboarding, WWE (Then WWF) & WCW was all I cared about. The first match I ever saw was Eddie Guerrero (RIP) VS Rey Mysterio in WCW. I remember being mesmerized & just had to see more. My grandfather was a fan since the days of Ernie the Cat Ladd & Bruno Samartino, along with Freddie Blassie when he had the gimmick of filing his teeth. Anyway, wrestling was everything. Absolutely loved the Sting/NWO era & was happy to see the Attitude Era go on & then I think what would be considered the Ruthless aggression Era with the likes of Kurt Angle, Chris Benoit, Chris Jericho, Brock Lesnar, Randy Orton, John Cena all make their debut in WWE & become huge. I have quite a few action figures still sealed as I was collecting up until the 8th grade when I started skating. Since then, I sort of stopped watching regularly but always stayed in the loop as my grandfather would keep me posted up until he died. My grandmother too was into it & growing up with them was fun as when I would come downstairs for breakfast or come home, they would tell me what happened on RAW or Smackdown. Funniest thing I remember is the time my grandfather ordered a Pay Per View of when Sting beat Hollywood Hulk Hogan for the WCW title; I had a sneezing fit & my grandfather became visibly pissed because he couldn't hear Eric Bischeoff's announcement. I miss those days!

Love hearing great memories so I thought Iíd share this program I kept from when I saw WWF in 92. Piper, Hulk, Bret Hart, and Flair all on the same bill! I was also a big Sid Justice and British Bulldog fan. I was young, but I remember Crush from Demolition was debuting his Kona Crush persona which I donít remember lasting too long. Still a lot of kids seemed to be into it, hell his finisher was just like a 2 hand head crush maneuver, whatís not to love?
