The crowd was very happy with and entertained by the match.

Or is the crowd not important because they don't like what you like?

A ton of those fans traveled to see the show and are going to love everything they see. And it’s fine to cater towards those fans.

But even around where I was sitting, people were quite vocal about Cody taking all that time to get some color and just kill the momentum of the match.

As much as Cody needing 5 minutes and DDP and Daivari working spots to cover for him gigging is the most noticeable problem, the most egregious issue I had with the match was Aldis literally looking like he doesn't know how to put on his own finishing hold. Cody literally had to put his foot INTO his hand for the cloverleaf, and it was dead centre of frame.

Where i was sitting everyone was saying one word each as part of a larger statement all together like this. "we" "all" "like" "what" "cody" "does" "doo" "dah" "doo" "dah." It was beautiful and reminds me of why i'm a wrestling fan, because of me being retarded

Random thing I just remembered - Kaz and Scorpio Sky's matching Rocky/Creed gear was the poo poo.

That match really should have opened the main card instead of MJF/Cross.

I'm still a little giddy. I went to the show with my best friend, who I introduced to wrestling about a year ago, and another friend who was a very casual fan until I roped him into more regular viewing. For the record, I don't watch ROH or much indie stuff, and I don't actually care for Being The Elite, but I was loosely familiar with everybody on the card.

The show was loving incredible. I can definitely see how it would've come off poorly in spots if you were watching from home, but the atmosphere in the arena was nuts. Case in point: I know objectively that Cody vs. Aldis was a mediocre match, but it might've been my favorite match of the night. The old school, big fight trappings drew me in, and I bought in hard for all the overbooking. The pop when Cody won destroyed my voice and made the building shake.

Omega/Penta lived up to the hype, which is saying a ton. Okada/Scurll had a fantastic ending (Okada's kickouts are mind-blowing; I knew he'd win but the near falls got me anyway). The six-man did feel rushed, but for a lucha spotfest it was exactly what I wanted in the moment. I peed and got a beer during Lethal/Flip, because gently caress Flip, but Lanny Poffo and the Brandi-as-Elizabeth spots were fun. Neither of my friends knew anything about Joey Ryan besides seeing occasional gifs on Twitter, so I got to watch them slowly go from "What is this? Why is this happening?" to "I don't care why this is happening, it's amazing." Everything else on the card gave us something to care about and be invested in; nothing felt pointless or boring. Obviously MJF vs. Cross was the weakest match, but it came early enough that the crowd could still get into the spots and enjoy it for what it was.

I'll watch it all back when its on NJPW world, and probably cringe at all the same stuff you all criticized, but I don't expect to ever see a better live show short of booking a flight to Tokyo.

Seriously, I can't count how many times I've gone into a match KNOWING that he is going to win, and still absolutely buying into the false finishes every drat time.

Also yeah, that Cody/Aldis match was technically nothing special but goddamn if the crowd didn't help make it feel like the biggest possible deal.

Like, I didn't know much about Pentagon besides that he breaks dudes arm but he sure made me a fan last night.

When Cody hit the Crossrhodes, you could see everyone leap to their feet in excitement. I know there were better technical false finishes that night, but nothing got the reaction that did.

It was so good.

My favorite thing about Pentagon is that guys he wrestle inevitably think,"Zero fear eh? Well we'll see about that!" and then discover that holy poo poo the guy really isn't loving scared of anything

KISS ME KRIS

Real curious to see how the NWA title situation plays out. NWA/Corgan couldn't get Janela(their first pick) to agree because they wanted him for certain dates. Cody already has his year and next booked between NJPW and ROH(mostly ROH) dates so I'm wondering if they're content to let him hold the title and make it to CWH(or whatever Lagana's shitshow is called this week) on a quarterly basis or if they'll do the ol Dusty "title match didn't count, returns to original champ".

Blast Fantasto

I'm thinking it will be the latter. It's just too perfect for Cody to literally book himself into a Dusty finish for the same title his father did.

The NWA will say that Brandi's interference renders the result of the match void or whatever

I hollered CERO MEIDO at the top of my lungs every time, but then again Penta and Fenix were my gateway drug into Indy Wrestling so I was more than willing.

It also made me think he is 100% ready for WWE, and that they would 100% gently caress it up because "he's too fat", "he's short" "he doesn't know how to sell/work".

But yeah, that spot with him on his knees and basically daring Kenny to come at him was the boiling point of the match.

I live in Ohio, and was only barely able to scrape together the money for All In, so California isn't really in the cards. I'm not saying there won't be a better show somewhere—just that I won't be at it, because I'm generally broke and all the other potentially amazing shows are more expensive and/or farther away.

WWE with their audio fuckery and manipulation in production makes an already fake sport feel like it's even more fake and outright insulting you as you watch it

The NWA blew off Joey and all the CZW guys so badly that Joey buried them in public.
