Raw is Chore 9/14.. not a very good show.. - HBK looked especially laughable.. - his Thesz press and mounted punches looked so awful.. - Trish did the same spot later and it looked much better.. - henry's explosive shoulderblock on the floor was great.. right after a phat-ass MVP crossbody that crushed jericho.. - six-person match had some nice moments in all.. - liked chavo/carlito stomping the shit out of bourne in one small moment but the rest of that was garbage.. as was wasting those four guys in the opener in a two min. tossaway.. - alicia fox push? i'm on board..
i'm close to finishing it, nothing too entertaining, although prospect of cena v. orton in cell is almost too good to believe
yeah i'm over these few minute tag matches
watched another late-July ROH on HDNet.. - funny moment at the end of the opener.. - ref is raising Necro and Grizzly's hands but Necro accidentally steps on a fallen "Dirty" Ernie Osiris' head and they stumble over his body falling drunkenly.. - Necro sock Ernie in the head a few times for good measure.. - WWE would have cut something like that.. because you know superstars don't trip.. - Kingston/Hero backstage brawl was fun.. - Eddie popping innocent bystanders like Sal Rinauro in the face was a nice touch.. - main was Black vs. Danielson III.. - loved how almost all of Bryan's strikes were stiff slaps throughout the match.. - Tyler who usually has some of the weakest looking strikes in the co. actually had a couple kicks that looked brutal.. - both guys took real wicked spills from the top rope out about four rows deep into the audience..
started watching DG USA's Open the Historic Gate.. - downloaded this out of compulsion more than anything.. figured it'd be Open the Overkill Gate.. - although am excited for the new Infinity episodes with the Tag League.. - go team Kensuke Office! - anyway.. YAMATO who has great goofy, heel facial expressions (one of the best grins in the game) took on BxB Hulk to start.. - did drift into flashy excess a bit and some stuff came off showy like anything on the mat but a lot of the big aerial moves landed with impact and some of Hulk's kicks looked surprisingly nasty.. - will finish the PPV over the next few weeks..
started watching the build for Minoru Suzuki vs. Tajiri.. - some funny bits where Suzuki kept getting misted, tied to the guardrail, etc. - will watch the match itself on my next class break.. as well as some other misc. stuff
what's the suzuki v. tajiri match coming up for? All japan?
no superstars never trip, tripping it outlawed in the universe, and the only old person allowed to be over is vince himself
thought cena's promo on raw to build hell in a cell actually worked though because it got me pumped to see it
another tame brawl with DX and legacy as well, Hunter looks like a tool in that tight hat
it's All Japan circa '07 I believe.. - caught the UFC 103 Countdown special last night.. - did a hell of a job pushing Belfort.. - i'd seen his run in Affliction but never knew his backstory.. - his sister disappearing, his three wars w/ Couture, and how he's turned to Randy now as a mentor, and that bit with him jump roping was slick.. - didn't real say much in the way of Franklin.. even though he trains a few miles down the road from NHO headquarters and is a local boy i've never been a big fan.. - liked the Trigg/Koscheck stuff, too.. - Josh is great at being hatable.. one their better heels sans Lesnar and BJ when he wants to be a douche.. - the Dos Santos/Cro Cop bit didn't real cover any new ground.. - bummed Swick got hurt, too.. what if Daley upsets Martin? - thought trish was good for the most part last night.. maybe a little lost on her opening mic work but was sent out there cold and had to push the PPV, too.. - i concur on cena's promo.. a more intense Cena is always awesome.. remember the last time he went off the deep end at Armageddon '04 absolutely slaughtering Zodiac of AJPW..
oh thought it was new
ididn't know it was on so early last night, had to DVR it for 1 am
check it out tonight and looking forward to it
yeah she was, i thought they'd do more with her, was a given she'd have a run in with jericho
told your bro to have us over for beatles before his vacation is over
forgot to mention i finished last week's impact.. - main of Angle/Samoa Joe vs. Styles/Daniels wasn't bad for time allotted.. - i like Angle's European uppercuts and some of Joe's strike flurries on Daniels actually held a modicum of the stiffness he used to be so loved for.. - hoping Joe/Daniels at the PPV this weekend gets time.. - think its weird that they brought in Taz as a dark heel mentor and now he's on commentary doing goofier shtick then even Don West at his best/worst.. - during the Sarita/Wilde vs. Daffney/Flash tag he was going on and on with corny jokes and talking about how Daffney was "zombie hot", etc. - can't believe i once believed he was a badass over a decade ago.. - going to try to watch a match or two before class.. and tonight i'm going to def. study some footage when i get back home.. - how were the satanico/dandy and hero/danielson two out of 3 falls matches?
that sounds like a really good match, given some time, would have loved to have seen it main event an ROH show in 05
i nearly forget the stiffness he was known for, and Taz, i've never been a big fan of his commentary, which is why i was surprised TNA wanted him, he always tripped over his words. only thing he was good for was calling the moves and giving some history on what they do and when he worked diff. guys, but he's mostly used as comedy but thing is he's deadly un-funny.
i'm hoping to watch some stuff tonight too
actually that's the match i'm on now, Satanico v. Dandy
that was the match I was telling you about going to a 30 min. draw, but it was fun. Nothing too dramatic or serious, 1st fall was all light ground work with the fall just coming out of a simple reversal, i'm liking Hero more and more, some of his stuff from Mid South really holds up, He was matching hold for hold with Dragon and his forearms/ elbows are so damaging and accurate, overall i'd probably say if you like a good clean 30 min broadway, it'd be a 6, but if not, work is good enough to merit a 5 or so. I enjoyed it for it's simplicity in structure, but the work was pretty intricate.
