  1. An absolutely cracking result, showing that intellect, real world vision, getting to the heart of issues and not falling for spin jobs can define a nation. In 2019, where technology is king and we have the ability to listen and learn like never before, this is a bold step into the future, and a statement that outdated ideology from decades ago, riddled with stubborn and unreasonable bias, will not dictate our destiny. Hang on. What do you mean Labour isn't blue. Oh. Oh.
  2. That match is such a bizarre turning point to me. It might be the definitive moment in wrestling history where the fans shifted to celebrating yesterday more than today, almost a subconscious accepting that after the War, the best days were behind them and the here and now didn't mean as much. Even if it was just marking out for ol' Terry, it was what it symbolized. I watched Rock/Hogan and my jaw was on the floor with the response to Hogan, but almost in a "what the hell is going on, what are you people doing!?" kind of a way. Here is this unbelieveable star that smoked Hogan as a talent at that point, and all those times Rock would mock WCW and Hogan for being old and out of touch in 1999 and had every right to, and people loved him for it. Now, here they were cheering for Hogan. I'm not sure I remember many matches where I was as unhappy with how it played out while it was going on than that one.
  3. SCG Radio returns this week to our 5 For 5 concept - reviewing five matches that were rated five stars by Dave Meltzer in the Wrestling Observer! This week we analyse and break down all about the things that make the performers, matches and wrestling itself the greatest thing since Worcester sauce, as it pertains to the following contests: *Sting's Squadron Vs. The Dangerous Alliance (War Games) - WCW Wrestle War 92 *Manami Toyota Vs. Aja Kong - AJW Douma Super Woman Great War *Mitsuharu Misawa Vs. Toshiaki Kawada - Budokan Hall 3.6.94 *Kazuchika Okada Vs. Kenny Omega - G1 Climax 27 *Ric Flair Vs. Terry Funk (I Quit) - WCW Clash 9/New York Knockout A lot of fun waxing poetic about some fantastic pro wrestling - if you're tired of hostility and negativity in your ears, enjoy! https://mcdn.podbean.com/mf/download/xc5de3/SCG_Radio_154_-_5_For_5_-_Episode_2.mp3
  4. I absolutely adore AEW. I'm not exaggerating when I say it's rekindled my love for watching wrestling weekly spoiler-free. The things I feel are the strongest negatives, thankfully, are generally very small aspects of the overall picture. Karl is far more critical than I expected.
  5. Just as a heads up since I couldn't post it with the forum down, but SCG Radio's return show was talking all about AEW Full Gear - every match, every angle, overall thoughts on the show, as well as an in-depth look at the promotion in general at this stage in the game, with thoughts on the strengths and weaknesses of Dynamite, the greatness of Chris Jericho, hot stars and cold prospects, what's good and bad about all things AEW thus far.... https://mcdn.podbean.com/mf/download/hps6ne/SCG_Radio_153_-_AEW_Full_Gear_and_Dynamite_So_Far.mp3
  6. WWE has fucked up their sense of hierarchy so badly. Everybody has been all over the card, pushed, depushed, held various titles, and nobody is a true star because they're at the top of the card anyway. That's one of the many things I enjoy about AEW, and it isn't even anything they're actively doing - because it's a new world and they've established the top guys are Jericho, Moxley, Omega and Cody, everybody is falling into their place and it's exciting to watch the movement because, in this realm, it actually means something.
  7. I think that's exactly what it is.
