Fave 5 earworm themes right now that I will hum for a day regularly
Enjoyed this. Wish they had some more of the historical context in there, it's very much a blind watchThere is now a podcast that will cover Shimmer history show by show, much like how ThROH the Years is covering ROH show by show in chronological order. It is Shimmer Herstory, and it’s stealing your gimmick, Serene: https://m.soundcloud.com/prowrestlingonly/shimmer-herstory-volume-1
That's why I really enjoy ThROH the Years: they dig into the Internet Archive for posts on the old ROH Message Board, old issues of the Observer, and attendees' memories to prep for the shows.
I found myself "well actuallying" in my head a bunch while I listened lol
They just did Main Event Spectacles with the Teddy Hart Scramble Cage bullshit. That means the Rob Feinstein bullshit is coming up fairly soon within the next six months at their current pace.
Karen Q, Rachael Ellering and Kushida are on WWE’s radar. Jonah Rock is expected to start in January along with ACH and Trevor Lee.
Kushida is a name has been talked about for weeks and we’ve been hearing more and more about it. Kushida is the current IWGP jr. champion and faces Taiji Ishimori at the Tokyo Dome. He’s under contract to New Japan until the end of January so we shouldn’t be hearing his name, but WWE has been more forward about trying to get people and not caring about contracts. Basically the feeling is that nobody with the possible exception of Sinclair, and MLW, would take any action against them, and for NJPW, it’s a difficult process based in Japan, but that’s not saying what NJPW would or wouldn’t do. Kushida is hardly the only NJPW person WWE is looking at getting right now for all the obvious reasons. This isn’t to say this is a done deal, just a name WWE is earmarking but enough that unlike other New Japan guys who they are after, this is one where the confidence level is at the point where it’s being talked about more prominently, at least one idea has been talked about which would involve him at NXT, as opposed to the obvious guys they want but probably aren’t in the end going to get
I came in around Manhattan Mayhem and then watched what I was able to get my hands on until like, Man Up? I think that's when I dropped offThey just did Main Event Spectacles with the Teddy Hart Scramble Cage bullshit.

#massexodusPAC giving RevPro the fastest sell-out in York Hall history, giving Dragon Gate their first Korakuen sell-out since CIMA left, booming ticket sales for multiple low-level indies. Hopefully some WWE also-rans take courage from his example and bet on themselves, because that roster is bloated as fuck and that's not even including the talent yet to make it regularly to TV.
Yeah, they dot even let indie talent get some years of experience to build up, they just want to sign everyone that could end up being something.
I am trying a new Cold Damage Over Time build. The new Occultist ascendancies look interesting and I always like to try the new league stuff.
Listen to some dreamcrusher friend:
The problem with this argument is that as they open more NXTs it's going to become less likely there's no room for you. At one point they had all these people and no TV time for them. But if they open three more NXTs they'll have time for everyone lolPAC giving RevPro the fastest sell-out in York Hall history, giving Dragon Gate their first Korakuen sell-out since CIMA left, booming ticket sales for multiple low-level indies.

Oh man Manhattan Mayhem was the first show i legit bought and i was hooked. I remember almost buying the super junior tourney because it was a super junior tourney and i luckily avoided Dragon Soldier B
They are constantly acquiring new talent, haven't even broken into some regions, and have hundreds of garbage talents you will never see who are supposed to be the ones benefitting from developmental instead of finished products being taught your TV style
Bryan was pointing out the babyfaces actually won matches. I think that's what Dave meant. You figure on another night they would've gotten stomped out as usual.lmao Dave saying Vince rewrote the entirety of Raw last minute this week because he thought people would be sad that George Bush died, so he rewrote the show to “make people happy”
So I guess this week’s Raw is an example of what Vince thinks makes people happy.
