PRO WRESTLING THREAD!!!

Hello friends. I know during the summer I was talking to a few people about wrestling and it completely slipped my mind to make a thread. Feel free to talk about any brand of wrestling that floats your boat and/or recommend/post matches as long as you aren't breaking site rules.

Lately I've mostly been watching Smackdown and NXT, while catching up on lucha underground and I'm getting started on watching old pwg cards. I'm currently waiting for the next mystery vortex so I can go out to Reseda and watch some wrasslin'. I've been trying to find NJPW stuff but it's mostly all Japanese only commentary or some real no frills guy uploading stuff "no commentary hard camera only".

I feel so far Raw as managed to become totally stale in the brand split despite having the better talent. Smackdown has been lit with the new women's belt, HEATH SLATER and his above ground pool, miz/Dolph, and the title picture has been better than expected (despite the ending to the triple threat being completely different than the last time they ran that spit but 6 month reset).

HEATH HEATH HEATH

I've been watching Smackdown, skipping through raw highlights and NXT! I'm really enjoying wrestling currently, honestly.

Mostly watch NXT and the PPVs, but did tune on Raw tonight to watch Goldberg accept Brock's challenge. Like he was going to appear on the show and then say no.

The best wrestling move is obviously the full nelson.

I usually only watch Smackdown and NXT plus NJPW. But Goldbergs return hit me with massive nostalgia.

How do you watch NJPW? Do you pay for New Japan World?

IDK about you guys, but I'm the biggest James Ellsworth mark in the world and I LOVED THE CHANT.

His face bothers me so much. I don't know if they are doing that on purpose with make-up or what.

He just has no chin so he looks like beaker from the muppets.

I really only watch Raw and and TNA Impact. I'm off Mondays so I watch Raw live. I DVR Impact but I keep forgetting to DVR Smackdown.

Oh! And CHIKARA. Love me some chikara so I subscribed to their on-demand service.

I'm on the periphery of fandom right now; I keep up with news and look up matches and segments as they get buzz. About all I bother with these days. I'm told WWE is great again, so I'm considering picking up the Network, but I'm afraid that I'd never get around to watching 6 hours of wrestling every week.

I only read results on WWE.com now, and check out anything I get told is good.

Cancelled my Network subscription.

So who is everyone's favorite wrestlers? My all-time favorite is Raven.

I really go nuts for a lot of the ridiculous stuff in wrestling too, so I miss stuff like Mantaur and the Dungeon of Doom. I used to run a website dedicated to The Yeti back in 1997-98. It was hosted by Unistork, two guys who ran a super-popular wrestling theme site until one day Uni got sick of people being dicks about their wrestling themes and gave the entire URL to me. I got SOOOO much hate mail.

I'd call WCW's Internet Insiders radio show every week and ask them questions about The Yeti. Ric Flair once called me an idiot and Mean Gene Okerlund told me to burn my telephone. Mark Madden called me a loser. After he got fired by WCW, Madden had a Pittsburgh Penguins radio show. I had a friend in Pittsburgh who gave me the call-in number, so that afternoon Madden was pretty annoyed to get a call asking when the Penguins would sign The Yeti.

Basically what I'm saying is if anyone knows where Mark Madden is on the radio these days, inbox me.
