    10 year Generation Next nostalgia makes me feel really old:


    Jack Evans, Austin Aries, Alex Shelley and Roderick Strong.

    CHIKARA is going to run an 18 rounds/90 matches CHALLENGE OF THE IMMORTALS tournament. Even at my peak level of interest in the promotion I could never handle that investment.

  • Registered Users Posts: 28,869 ✭✭✭✭CastorTroy

    I watch it occasionally so what I pick up, it'll be Ant vs Ant for a lot of the brackets

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,132 ✭✭✭Andy_rse

    Just got done watching Black Cole Sun. What a show, every match was good.
    Did O'Reilly submit at the end though or did the ref stop it? It looked to me that he was out from the chair spot and Hero called it on commentary that he gave up. He definitely didn't tap as you can see both hands sort of under his body, so unless he verbally submitted Hero got the call wrong which is what I'm thinking. Did they ever clear it up?

    ROH are running their 13th anniversary PPV tomorrow night and it looks like a hell of a show on paper except the main which could be either a bit of a cluster or really good.
    ROH World Title Four Corner Survival Match
    Jay Briscoe (c) vs. Hanson vs. Michael Elgin vs. Tommaso Ciampa

    ROH World Tag Team Title Match
    reDRagon (Bobby Fish & Kyle O'Reilly) (c) vs. The Young Bucks (Matt Jackson & Nick Jackson)

    ROH World Television Title Match
    Jay Lethal (w/Truth Martini) (c) vs. Alberto El Patron

    Three Way Tag Team Match
    BULLET CLUB (Doc Gallows & Karl Anderson) vs. The Addiction (Christopher Daniels & Frankie Kazarian) vs. The Kingdom (Matt Taven & Michael Bennett) (w/Maria Kanellis)

    Grudge Match
    BJ Whitmer (w/Adam Page & Jimmy Jacobs) vs. Roderick Strong

    Singles Match
    ACH vs. AJ Styles

    Singles Match
    Cedric Alexander vs. Matt Sydal

    Singles Match
    Maria Kanellis (w/Michael Bennett) vs. ODB (w/Mark Briscoe)

    Singles Match
    Mark Briscoe vs. Moose (w/Stokely Hathaway & Veda Scott)

    They've been on a roll the last few weeks the six man from the 14th February tv with The Bucks/AJ Styles vs ACH/Cedric Alexander/Matt Sydel was a crazy spotfest.

    And i can't recommend this Atlanta VOD show they did last week enough everything on it was good to great especially Roddy Strong vs Kyle O'Reilly and The Briscoes vs The Kingdom well worth the 13 Euro i spent.

    I have no idea what people like so much about Hanson. Any time I've seen him, at best he got a meh from me. A future Joe vs Briscoe match could be great but that is about the extent of my interest in the main event.

    Have a hard time seeing the tag title match being anything other than great. They've faced each other a few times and it's always delivered so I'm expecting more of the same here.

    Not a huge fan of ACH, but Styles pretty much always delivers so hopefully he can keep it going. Kind of a waste having Styles so far down though. Likewise with Sydal.

    Does anyone know if the UK Highspots store gets new release PWG dvds the same time as the PWG store? Was thinking of ordering From Outta Nowhere from it but not if there's a delay.

  • Registered Users Posts: 12,478 ✭✭✭✭gnfnrhead

    Considering it was the 13th anniversary, it was an incredibly dull show. If they didn't have Joe, it would have hardly even felt like a PPV, let alone a big one. None of the matches were anything special. The tag title match could have been great, but it felt like they got two thirds of the way through the match and called it a day. It was perfectly set up for the Bucks to win then one big move and reDRagon retain. The boos for reDRagon I don't think were due to heel heat either.

    The main event was pretty awful. Ciampa looked good for the most part but that's about it. Hanson has no business being that high up the card. The finish made the previously strong champion look like crap. Kinda the opposite of what you want if he is to face Joe any time soon. Nothing else really stood out. The Styles and Sydal matches were more about putting the younger guys over in defeat than putting on great matches.

    I assume the only reason they didn't go Briscoe vs Styles as the main event is ROH don't want a title change, while NJPW don't want Styles losing. Not sure why they don't use Hero more often either. They need a couple of big names in the title scene with Cole out injured. Joe kinda just fell into their lap.

    Yeah it's odd how they constantly bring up how he hasn't been pinned in two years and then do that.

  • Banned (with Prison Access) Posts: 23,089 ✭✭✭✭rovert

    The new PWG trailer is out. What's notable about this show there's a lot of fresh faces on the card:

    Trevor Lee and "Speed Ball" Mike Bailey are two names worth making note of. Also this was Meltzer's first ever PWG show:

    Go to the 4min 20sec mark to see The Young Bucks hit the Meltzer Driver in front of Dave Meltzer himself.

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,132 ✭✭✭Andy_rse

    What's the story behind the Meltzer driver? Is it a tongue in cheek f u to Meltzer? Is he generally a fan of the flippy unnecessary stuff?

    I'm sure I heard them talk about it in a podcast but it hasn't stuck in my head.

  • Registered Users Posts: 328 ✭✭Griever931

    Jay Lethal vs. Jushin Liger for the World TV Title at Supercard of Honor. I remember Liger's match against Adam Cole was pretty good so hoping for the same here.

    A graphic for all the live iPPVs Wrestlemania weekend presented by the WWN Live umbrella of companies:

    ROH is presenting a card on Friday however it won't be broadcast live but will be available the next day on Video On Demand:

    Personally planning check the ROH show and everything from WWN except the King of Indies show (glorified local indie production) and the Kaiju Big Battle (don't even ask men fighting in cardboard box costumes).

    They are 7 hours behind us. Man.

    Dalton Castle is sensational

    Whooper sized gif but let it load:

  • Registered Users Posts: 182 ✭✭robvondoom

    His entrance alone is magnificent. Haven't laughed so hard since Bo was turfed out of the NXT arena. Then he hit a dead lift suplex. Best in the World!

    The KRD stuff so far has been pretty lame.

    Oh it is the worst as it has gone on too long now and it is ruining matches. Also ROH does this invading group storyline nearly every six months.

    ROH Supercard of Honor is on (not live) tonight. It is Jimmy Jacob's last match and Lacey is actually in the State. She was at EVOLVE last night. Nope she is involved in the match it would be a story book ending.

    The EVOLVE show this morning (!) was a bit of a disappointment. Just on the cusp of being good. Thought it was just me being cranky due to the show being so late. But even the Yanks are divided on it. There were a lot of matches that simply wouldn't end. The Rich Swann, Ricochet & Uhaa Nation vs Caleb Konley, Brian Cage & TJ Perkins was what I was looking forward too and it didn't come together. Gabe took a gamble with the main even of the former Drew McIntyre vs the former Justin Gabriel and they had a below Superstars level main event.

    Perfect. I'm a huge mark for Jimmy, (I was stupidly nervous interviewing him for the podcast!) he is one of my favourite guys to ever enter the ring. Really wish this was live as I'm dying to see everything that went down

  • Registered Users Posts: 328 ✭✭Griever931

    Strange that they are waiting so long to put it up. Why have they had such a bad record with their ippvs in the past? Do other companies have problems or are ROH just cheap with who they get to do them?

    Tale of two shows. One effectively showcasing new talent and the other a bunch crap poorly executed distraction/roll up finishes. Enjoyable though.

    Nicole Savoy was a complete and utter revelation. Never seen her before:

    Liger vs Dalton is one of those matches that i never knew i wanted to see till someone booked it. Incredible.
