    Newest Talk is Jericho is all about how he signed with new Japan and AEW. It’s interesting but the lad is living in a fantasy land. He’s completely delusional about his own worth and accomplishments in wrestling.

    WWE launches new U.K. series - NXT UK

    20 minutes of shit fans trying to get themselves over sounds utterly terrible. Hopefully none of that tonight.

    WWE launches new U.K. series - NXT UK

    I’m sure it will be a good show, and I have front row tickets, but at the end of the day the UK roster has some great wrestlers but absolutely no stars. And it’s hard to get excited about people who aren’t stars just doing moves. Pete Dunne is tremendous. But he’s not a star. And stars will always be more important than moves.

    I did. Some Indy guys and a wwe mid carder. Minus the mid carder, I’ve seen them all wrestle a thousand times.

    The list was literally a mid card comedy act. Literally.

    The last jericho match I saw was him losing to Naito last week. The last time the vast majority of wrestling fans (They ones they need to stop this being just another indy) saw him was as a 50 year old mid card comedy act in wwe. Only now hes also fat and has an even bigger ego.

    I get that Jericho is the biggest star they have, but ending the presser with a fat 50 year old mid card comedy act after having all the young guys curtain jerk for him doesn’t fill me with joy. It’s very TNA. Should have been Cody and the bucks on first and last.

    Tony khan is a lifelong fan and an observer subscriber that writes letters in about house shows. Hes a successful businessman but he's also a fan. There's no way he would be in this if he wasn't. Too many people have failed already. I think he will sink more money in than a normal businessman would because he will be emotionally invested as well. That could be both good and bad depending on how they do of course. Could be the thing that makes them a success or could be an embarrassing failure for the family.

    Completely disagree. Putting the in ring before every thing else will only appeal to a small number if wrestling fans that will already be watching anyway. Wrestling companies need more than just in ring wrestling to be successful on TV. The rivalries, characters and storylines are far more important.

    The big selling point to me is the whole anti wwe internet rebellion fans that will follow this to feel part of something. That's a small audience though and one that can soon disappear once they start bringing in wwe rejects and midcarders.

    Minor news items that don't deserve a thread

    You can know exactly what wrestling is and still accept that there might be a bit of legitimacy to man saying goodbye to one if his best friends of 35 years that died. It can be both.

    Or, they were friends for 35 years and it makes sense. Not everything is a war against wwe.

    Loved the last two matches. Opener was fine if a little too ridiculous and everything else was just there. Not a patch on last year but worth it overall for the last two. Naito is tremendous.

    It will be a success for a while until the novelty wears off. All in was all about an event and wrestling fans feeling like they were part of some sort of rebellion rather than matches, performers and storylines drawing fans. After a few weeks or months they probably won’t have that anymore. New Japan does fuck all on TV ratings wise and has all these guys plus more. I don’t think it’s possible for a wrestling company to get even close in 2019 to where TNA were in the Spike days to be honest. Hopefully I’m wrong as it’s the best thing to happen for wrestlers in years.
