    looks like a decent Tag division forming

    I don't see the so called legend anywhere


  • Registered Users Posts: 20,753 ✭✭✭✭beakerjoe


    Their roster just looks like a whos who of indy names. Not that I expected anything else mind you.


  • Registered Users Posts: 60,616 ✭✭✭✭Agent Coulson


    So will the The New Heavenly Bodies have Cornette as a manager I wonder.

    Desirable Dustin & Gigolo Justin. They mainly work for Pro Wrestling Syndicate in New Jesey and Booker T's indie in Texas called Reality of Wrestling. They are a decent team.

    They have the original team's blessing. They wear the same gear and come out to the original team's music:

    Brodus working for TNA and GFW? Also do you think they paid to license that music?


  • Registered Users Posts: 60,616 ✭✭✭✭Agent Coulson


    Brodus working for TNA and GFW?

    A real independent contractor right there.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,166 ✭✭✭Stereomaniac


    I'm still interested in this! Cool to see Jigsaw there. I only know him from the show here recently.

    Still annoyed TNA didn't sign him after his cameo appearance

    Not a bad roster I guess so far, I wonder if they will sign Tomasso Ciampa seeing as how he's now with ROH anymore.

    They may but I am hearing he is trying to get into NXT.


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


    Other names Cassidy Riley & Chase Stevens (The Naturals), Luke Hawx and Jamin Olivencia.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 2,469 ✭✭✭LeeJM


    The Naturals? Jesus isnt it like 9 years too late for them


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 42,455 Mod ✭✭✭✭Lord TSC


    There's been very little so far that makes me think this stands a chance of being anything above every other Indy fed out there....


  • Registered Users Posts: 328 ✭✭Griever931


    Since they have Gallows and Compton they might as well go for Cabana too, complete the wrestling road diaries too line-up.

  • Registered Users Posts: 6,943 ✭✭✭Machismo Fan


    How much is this a roster as opposed to guys who happen to be working these particular shows?

    I really don't know but:

    They are holding back some unannounced big names until their TV taping.

    I wonder how much money they are throwing at Goldberg to sign on.

    Is that public about Goldberg? Where did you see it?

    Just an educated guess to be honest Goldberg & Ross would/should be the biggest targets.

    From April 24th this year.

    Goldberg said while attending the NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Bristol Motor Speedway.
    “I’m going to make an appearance in professional wrestling, but it won’t be for the WWE. If I put wrestling boots and wrestling trunks on one last time — and I’m going to — it’s going to be done by me and me only.”

    http://www.foxsports.com/buzzer/story/wwe-bill-goldberg-return-042415

    Hermie Sadler being a NASCAR guy and Goldberg's quote from a NASCAR event helps with the guessing.


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


    You are a smart cookie then, AC. Yeah Goldberg will be a big surprise for their TV tapings.

    Also AJ Styles will be a big surprise. AJ isn't that big of a surprise as all his Bullet Club mates has signed on with GFW but AJ and Jeff working together is two fingers up to Dixie and TNA. Styles is one of the best workers in the World too obviously.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,114 ✭✭✭BohsJohnny


    Only seeing those cards now I really hope these two matches make tape I can only imagine what the Bucks and Everett will come up with.
    Bowling Green, Kentucky 6/21
    Sonjay Dutt v Jigsaw v Jimmy Rave
    Young Bucks (Matt Jackson/Nick Jackson) v Andrew Everett/PJ Black


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,943 ✭✭✭Machismo Fan


    If they don't announce that Goldberg will be there prior to the TV tapings that'd be very, very silly.


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

    How many times has WWE and TNA been taught that lesson without learning though? But yeah you are right. I am interested in what Goldberg means in 2015. The only real metric is that 2013 WWE Goldberg DVD sold extremely well. Outsold Triple H's Thy Kingdom Come by a large margin. I know that was Triple H's nth DVD but still Triple H is a current star pushed prominently. While WWE's history and history in general wrote Goldberg off as a flash in the pan.

    If he does make an in ring return I hope it isn't as grim as The Ultimate Warrior's:

    That was a decent match, cheers for posting it. It does beg the question alright, why didn't they sign him further on down the line? Anyway, hopefully he'll impress at the shows they have announced. I was blown away by him when he appeared in Dublin. Had never heard anything about him prior to that so was surprised.


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


    That was a decent match

    Watch the full match.
