Usually the Raw after the Rumble in terms of audience. In terms of things happening it actually is the Raw after WM but the NCAA Finals usually means the audience isn't as big.

Someone on TSE forums is pissed at AJ winning the IWGP Championship

quote:

I have to say I don't support the decision by NJPW to give him the belt, even if I am an AJ Styles fan (and I'm not).

I never really liked Styles, to be honest. While I'll give him credit that he IS a good wrestler, I don't think he's as great as most of his fans make him out to be, calling him one of the greatest/best of all time, etc.

When I look at AJ Styles, I see a guy who has been massively and excessively pushed throughout his career.

In early ROH, from 2002 to 2006, he was blatantly shoved down the throats of the ROH crowds, almost always winning (defeating Punk 3 times in a row, defeating Danielson twice, defeating the Briscoes 3 times in a row, winning a Tag Team Scramble without even having a tag partner, etc).

And as for how he was over-pushed in TNA, I'll just say this; by the time TNA was even 3 years old (2005), Styles had already won every single championship in the company at LEAST twice.

And now, barely a month after he arrived in NJPW, he was given a title shot and subsequent victory, ending the year-long reign of Okada.

His career aside, I also have very little respect for Styles when it comes to his attitude. The guy has a bad history of almost always refusing to put other people over, to a point where he would almost never eat the pin in a tag match if his team is booked to lose.

I was disgusted by the match he had against Davey Richards at ROH Death Before Dishonour IV.
At the time, Richards was new to ROH, and other wrestlers who, like AJ, were also strongly booked in the company did their best to put him over and make him look good (Strong, Aries, the Briscoes, even KENTA).
Styles would not sell a single move from Richards, not even a DDT on the floor. Richards eventually retaliated by doing the same thing and refusing to sell for him as well.

During the ROH Milestone series, when Styles and Matt Sydal were in a tag match against two Dragon Gate wrestlers, one of whom was Dragon Kid, Styles refused to sell anything from Kid and behaved very disrespectfully throughout the entire match.

I would go so far as to say that I think Styles is worse than Low Ki. At least during a match, Ki would be professional enough to sell the offense of his opponent even if he's refusing to lose to him.

And from what I've heard, when he returned to ROH in 2013, Styles has almost always refused to put over anybody in ROH when the company could have really used a high-profile veteran who would be willing to do so for the younger talent. I was glad that ROH made him put over Michael Elgin.

I don't hate him, but I very little respect for the man. I do think he IS a good wrestler, but not so good that he deserves to be pushed to the moon like this.

I hope NJPW won't over-push him like TNA and ROH have and give in to his refusal to put over other wrestlers, but seeing how they just handed him the belt barely a month after he got in, it looks like Styles is going to be massively pushed AGAIN...
AJ worse than Low Ki

WWE put a video up of the Statue of Liberty from Mania 29 being brought to the Warehouse and the top comment and its replies caught my eye.

quote:

What did Dolph Ziggler & Damien Sandow say &/or do to deserve getting buried by a John Cena?

- Cena didnt bury them its all creative
- Mfw Cena never buried them, it's the WWE writers that wrote them off. Imo, Ziggler got a push when he had that rivalry with John Cena in end of 2012/early 2013.

He didn't bury them though. They clearly had a plan for Sandow when they were teaming him with the Real Americans and Cena was teaming with the Rhodes, and then they decided that they were unifying the world titles and that got kiboshed.

Zigglers burial was just concussions, and him being an idiot on Twitter, but he was Dead on Return.

Not that youtube comments are any source of intelligence, we could fill up the entire thread with them.

Myself and someone on Youtube

Considering that TNA is a clusterfuck right now that can barely pay people while guys like PAC and El Generico are being heavily pushed in NXT, why would he go to TNA? His match with PAC a couple of years ago was essentially what got PAC hired and Devitt has only improved since then.

Andre Corbeil




wwe in ring pace is to slow to suit sudden athletes like devitt. they even slowed reys style in 2001 

Testekill


That was 13 years ago. Rey had already suffered a few knee injures.by the time he joined WCW and it only got worse from there.

Plus, once more they're using guys like Tyler Black, Pac, El Generico without neutering their styles. Black is part of the heaviest pushed team in years after all while PAC is NXT champion.


Andre Corbeil



so are you denying that the match pace is slower in wwe. that is why their ring is slightly bigger & the ring size hasnt changed in 13 years so whats kane & wcw have to do with the speed & pace of the product?

Testekill


The match style is slower and safer so that the wrestlers can cope with the wear and tear as well as so that the big moves can feel more important.
If you bust out a shooting star press in every match then the crowd are going to get sick of it. But if you only do them every so often then they mean alot more. Cesaro doesn't bust out the swiss death or the Alphamere Waterslide in every match so it then counts more when it gets used.

And what the gently caress are you talking about Kane for? Tyler Black is Seth Rollins aka part of the shield aka the stable that has had two match of the year cantidates already.


Andre Corbeil7:38 PM



if you cant control the language like an adult you are not welcome here! good bye


Andre Corbeil


ps kane was a google voice text blunder if you wanna know why i mentioned kane! sometimes it doesnt register the right spoken word 

Andre Corbeil


i wont block you but in the future please keep it respectful. this is a channel for all ages



Testekill


So tell me why Devitt would be better off in TNA? Their only good high flyers are Sanada & Tigre Uno while the WWE has PAC, El Genercio, Samuray is an amazing flyer, Daniel Bryan works well with high flyers and Seth Black is good at it also. So he can get paid and he has much better people to work with. Not to mention that KENTA is coming to the WWE soon also.

There's a reason why Jesse Neal had to apply for food stamps while working for TNA, why Jesse Sorensen got fired as soon as the statute of limitations had expired for being able to sue for injury, why any talented people who won't work for a tiny amount of money are getting fired. Because TNA is a basketcase.

Do you mean for each post? They seem to run on some program that loads the comments rather than being built into the site itself. You might need to update something to see them? Unless there was a full comment section for the site, if there was I have no clue.

Edit: I really liked their update about Kazarian.

quote:

REPORT: Kazarian Finished with TNA

Richard Gray of Wrestling News World is reporting that Kazarian finished up with the company as the One Night Only PPV taping this past weekend was his last with TNA. This is not surprising as we expected his contract to expire soon. Kazarian will soon join Christopher Daniels in free agency. In a way, I'm glad this day has come as the entire process has been one big distraction for TNA fans. Bad Influence can now move on to the next phase of their career and TNA can do so as well.
