December Wrasslin' |OT|: It's the Most Carny Time of the Year

Fave Five themes:

1) Rika Tatsumi - Love and Revolution (Rika Tatsumi)
2) Act Yasukawa - Girl's Fight (Mutant Monster)
3) Hanan's theme
4) W-FIX/RIOT QUEEN - Out of Control (MAN WITH A MISSION)
5) Erin Angel - Bring it All Back (S-Club 7)

Act's isn't current but I heard it for the first time this year. Sakura Hirota's Marvelous theme gets a honourable mention but that more a combination of theme/video/Becky pyro/experience than it just being catchy.

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

Yeah, I'm certainly going to give it a try and definitely be a regular listener once they get to my era of ROH

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.

To expand on the Kushida thing, Dave is saying WWE is very confident they are going to get him and are already making plans for him in NXT. Here’s the excerpt.

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 off

Feinstein sounds like a good place to jump on the podcast

What’s crazy about Kushida is that he said as recently as a year ago in an interview with Dave that he had no interest in going to WWE.

But honestly it kind of makes sense for him to make the move now. He’s done pretty much everything he’s going to do in NJPW from an accomplishment perspective and he was already starting to get phased out of the main picture until Hiromu got hurt.

PAC 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.

I want Rachael Ellering fast-tracked to Smackdown and in a match against Asuka just to see what happens.

(Ellering had a match against Konami in Stardom where she got pissed off that Konami kicked hard and fucking shouted at her about it after the match in front of the whole audience and the cameras.)

To me the move with Kushida is similar to what they did with Nakamura.

Have Black lose his title match in Phoenix, then have Kushida show up and challenge him to match for Takeover WM Weekend. You can guarantee the match will be great and give Kushida a big win over a guy who doesn’t lose to pretty much anyone and send Aleister on his way to the main roster.

Plus I just really selfishly want to see that match.

lol, WWE were actually trying to sign Marko Stunt. They really do want everyone with even the slightest bit of buzz, if only to deny other promotions those potential stars.

What a pathetic, cowardly excuse for a company.
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.

Soon, friends. Fuck all the other shit.

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.

jpop?

you overestimate my mental stability, friend.

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 lol

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

There will never be room for the people they have now to be properly used, yet alone whatever is in the pipeline

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.

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.

That Vince thinks I'd be sad though is telling. Not even politically. Bush 41 was President when I was like...4. I'm 31 now. I have no emotional connection to that dude, and other folks my age wouldn't either. So he's still making this product for people in their fifties and sixties.
