basically someone who I enjoy watching and can make me suspend my disbelief

like misu did when he destroyed tana's leg, or combo slapped okada, or gave goto a hangman's choke from the turnbuckle, or when he ran away from liger trying to murder him with a spike

those real feels
That's a good answer. I guess I don't look at it like that because to me it's not real so at least make it entertaining like a movie fight scene.

All jokes aside, if we lost the chance at NJPW cross promotion but got DDT a raised profile instead, I'd be fine with it. They offer such a variety of content and I'd love to see their content made a little more friendly for English viewers.

Meltzer from today's Observer Radio regarding the draft tomorrow on Smackdown:

  • It's going to be people picking like a football draft. There will be reps picking for Fox and USA.
  • It won't be authority figures because they don't want those right now.
  • This could change, but the whole draft is done. They're likely not telling anyone where they will go, but they might tell some of the talent higher on the card.

They’ve done this in the past. Imagine working for a company in 2019 that won’t tell you where you’re working because they literally want to work you .
Dave should know by now Vince will make a change 30 min before the show starts.

LOL

On the Post Wrestling Dynamite review John Pollock was mentioning all the swearing on last night’s episode. Said maybe Hunter is going to come out next week on NXT and say “Who’s ready to get FUCKED”.

Too early to count out Triple H.

Anybody who thinks Slipknot is still cool in 2019 has his finger on the pulse.

Hot take; most of the wrestlers WrassleERA labels as garbage are in fact at least decent at their jobs, it's just that most of you are incapable of being objective. Except me.

Shawn Spears is Garbage with a capital G

Thats it. I stan for Shawn Spears starting now.

Not letting Cody's boy go down like this. He's going to be a great upper midcard heel once they let him rack up some wins.

I think it's worth at least giving a wrestler another look when they leave WWE. They might still suck but I like to see them out of the WWE mega-machine before deciding that. Shawn Spears seems like a better performer than he is given credit for.

Match with Mox was rock solid.

Both men looked good and competitive.

Hotter take: Most of these dorks are just looking for any wrestlers who evoke the feel of what made them love wrestling as a kid, and anyone who doesn't is "bad".

Time is valuable, and there are more alternatives than ever before to use your time on, wrestling or non.

So why would I waste it watching someone who is 'just ok'?

So I guess they're trying to see how many times they can refer to Kenny as The Cleaner before they get the cease and desist from NJPW.

Can anyone explain to me why the young bucks are allowed so much time in the ring together without tagging?

They treat every match like it's a tornado match.
