That Maru guy was talking shit about Bret Hart on Canadian television (The Score?) when he finally came back to WWE after all those years . I could never really be a fan of him because of that.

 

 I did find his commentary to be quite good though. Especially considering how bad it is now. I'll check out the link to his doc. It at least has to be better than anything WWE has put out recently...

Y'know, as a Canadian it took me a while, years, to come to terms with the fact that there was more to wrestling than Bret Hart, or what was done to him, or what people had to say about it.

I thought night one of G1 29 was great.

Thought Archer/Ospreay, KENTA/Ibushi, Tana/Okada and Sabre/Sanada were all very good.

Only negative apart from the crowd size was Evil/Fale.

I see :max:

But I like the team, I don't care who else does or doesn't.

RAW wasn't as good as last week.

I'll watch SmackDown later.

Smack down was better than raw this week.

I agree.

Bray, why haven't you been on TV the last few weeks?

Are you looking forward to Extreme Rules?

I only just finished Fyter Fest. And other than the pandering to the gaming crowd, I thought the show was decent. Better than the last WWE event I watched.

I really hope AEW has strong television come October.

I agree, but they REALLY need to cut that video game shit.

They do. I understand that Kenny loves that shit, but not every fan does.

I liked to think it was a one off for that event.

Same with the Bucks. I always liked how the Bucks don't give a fuck what people think. But I also hate a lot of their goofy shit. They need to keep that to a minimum to really get a broad audience.

Best Kenny, is Kenny that shows up at Sumo Hall, Budokan Hall or the Tokyo Dome in Tokyo to fight Ibushi, Okada or Ishii in the G1. Problem is 90% of the time he's playing a wacky out of place character based on something they created for youtube. Bigger problem is, that AEW is based on that.

Just because Omega is a fantastic wrestler, doesn't mean that he'd be a great promoter for a major promotion. Bucks are the same. They're a gimmick based around selling merch. on youtube and playing tribute to what help kill wrestling's appeal after the 1990's.

I'm a progressive myself, but seeing amputees getting beat up or gender bender gimmicks (Sonny Kiss for example), ram wrestlers who past their sell by date in the 90's (see Tommy Dreamer's) face into his ass is just uncomfortable and silly. These were the pre-shows.

I think it's great that people like this stuff, good for them. However to me it's just the worst of PWG, indy acts mixed with TNA (which itself was ripping off the worst of WCW). I think the honeymoon peroid will wear off in a year.

That's one of the better descriptions of AEW's main weakness that I've read. There are a lot of things I liked about Double Or Nothing and Fyter Fest, but you're spot on there.

IIRC correctly there were similar nods to video games when NJPW did a thing with CEO last year.

Stopping Grounds was alright (which was surprising) bar the main event. I don't have much hope for Extreme Rules but I'm looking forward to Black/Cesaro.

If Kofi is injured I'd love for Joe to finally get a big win but I don't see it happening.

I'd like that too. Tana's on a bad run at the minute but I think he'll win.

Actually think that was a show put together by Omega, where he got NJPW to send some wrestlers. Don't think NJPW actually had much to do apart from letting Kenny book some of their wrestlers.

Still need to watch Fight For The Fallen.

I like that Natalya will face off against Becky Lynch at Summerslam!

Why? She has absolutely zero character... Sorry, I just never really liked her. Very bland personality. But in fairness, there weren't any good challengers anyway. Nobody stands out wrestling-wise or character-wise. The best option imo would have been to to call up Baszler.

Natalya is a fantastic worker, though.

WWE's Women's Division doesn't have much going for it. Lynch, Charlotte, Asuka, and Bailey the others bore me, lol.

I agree with brining up Baszler though. That would be pretty cool.

When you do please tell me what your favourite match was.

Natayla in Toronto. She might win. Bayley versus Moon too.

I felt bad for the women on RAW. Sure the match was too long but it wasn't that bad.

Would you rather have one twenty minute women's match on RAW or four five minute matches?

I won't have time this weekend but lll definitely let you know!

Aren't most t.v. matches 5-12 minutes? I haven't watched an episode in forever.

I would definitely like to see more matches though, given enough time to have at least a decent outting.
