141. "RE: War Games did not disappoint"
In response to In response to 124


  

          

Yeah. I’m gonna get to this war games. My guess is that UE is amazingly loved in the back. I assume they’re all bigtime hbk fans and he’s back there trying his ass off to position those dudes well. And all of those sons of bitches have MOTORS and can go. That’s the thing older rasslers and bookers seem to love most. When you have guys who don’t blow up easy, you can treat them like action figures damn near. Sometimes it goes a bit far and we get those 25 kickouts matches that can ruin things. But I’m old and nerdy enough to also appreciate the physical aspect of it. That alone turned me around on Adam Cole. I didn’t gaf about him before nxt but from the time he stepped in on those Johnny Wrestling matches to now, he’s won me all the way the fuck over. And yeah, I’m still horrified that he’s tiny and therefore he’s fucked if he ever shows up on raw and smackdown unless someone protects him majorly.

As it relates to going, those Flair/Steamboat matches usually stand up well to me for that reason. The pacing in some of those matches man...when they’d kick it up a notch? Shiiiiiiiiiiid. Then seeing Eddy, Benoit, and that crew try to elevate that with heavier offense but keeping the same speed and crispness AND the free flowing/make it seem real without just slanging potatoes part of it? Yeah. Very good.

I wonder how many current wrestling fans have truly seen the All Japan 90s heyday matches. I think even I need to revisit them. I assume I’d see too many potatoes but ridiculous physical effort and some badass storytelling. it’s been a while. But I know seeing it early 2000s turned me all the way out. Had me paying 80 bucks for Virtua Pro wrestling 2. The thing I remember most is all the main guys having a submission and a ‘hey, quit kicking out, you bitch’ 2nd finisher. That and the limb damage psychology was heavyhanded and dope. Shit, maybe aew needs to watch these all Japan matches.

      idk how it happened, but Spears got me to turn around on him
Sep 05th 2020
21
      Agreed, Spears would kinda drag the stable down imo
Sep 05th 2020
24
           He would be there to eat the pins
Sep 05th 2020

                Great point

So Matt Hardy almost died.
Sep 05th 2020
34
It should have been stopped
Sep 05th 2020
35
Bad not for Matt’s
Sep 05th 2020

So... I think it was an intentionally botched spot
Sep 05th 2020

      as long as he don't squash Pentagon this week I'm fine with it.
Oct 27th 2020
54
           He shouldn't squash Penta at all
Oct 27th 2020
55
           Well, that certainly wasn't a squash
Oct 29th 2020
56
                Sammy should get the "Et tu, Brute?" moment.
