(14 March 2018 - 04:28 AM)Sunday night I went to FSW The Mecca II... awesome card! https://www.facebook...50122191694376/ Notable: Raven and Tommy Dreamer vs Disco Inferno and Eli Drake (Shaun Ricker was an FSW guy for years before he was in TNA as Eli Drake), Rocky Romero and JUSHIN FUCKIN LIGER vs dudes. Moose again, Kenny King vs Scorpio Sky vs , Teddy Hart vs Joey Janella, oVe on the card... good, good stuff!
(14 March 2018 - 04:18 AM)Guys! I attended my first indy shows ever (2 in the last month)! Our local promotion FSW. In January the big names outside LV that were there: Alberto El Patron vs Moose (aired on TNA) Sami Callahan had a match, and Kenny King had a match (he's from LV and was originally in FSW years ago, is a regular still). https://www.facebook...75925916181875/
Bro Leftovers is legit. It's such a beautifully written show. I love everything about it.
It's not something you can watch while doing something else, you gotta pay attention, but it's worth it.
That said, the show runners have said in interviews they don't plan to fully explain WHY the departed disappeared, because doing so would kind of hurt the show.
So glad to have some approval, particularly yours hahaha. 100% though, you have to actively watch. Question everything, see everything, and believe that everything will make sense.
I finished both seasons earlier this month and am rewatching now with my girlfriend. She wants to know more about the departure and how/why/etc... finally figured out how to explain that that's not the point of the show, and it doubles as a response to your last statement: The show is called The Leftovers. It's about those leftover from the disappearance, not that act of the disappearance itself.
I know it's an unpopular opinion, but I want TNA to go away. Not rebrand or find a new group or TV home. Completely cease to exist. All of the in-ring talent at TNA is good enough to end up somewhere else. The production staff is all good enough to find jobgs in wrestling, sports, or other live production areas. Just about everybody will find new work. Plus Dixie will get out of the business (likely, not guaranteed) and WWE can pick up the tape library, which will be one of TNA's best contributions to wrestling in the long term.
With all the companies in the picture from the television and PPV side (WWE, ROH, Lucha, GFW, indies on local/regional markets), there's no doubt in my mind that wrestling as a whole will benefit within a few years of TNA's inevitable fall, because almost all of the recent head-scratching, "wrestling administrators are idiots" moves in the last 3-4 years have been TNA under Dixie. Let the company go and better things will grow.
I respect and appreciate all the year Rey has dedicated to the business, but he needs to retire. I honestly fast forward through things on my TV that involve him. When people complain about Cena's character being stale I point out how Rey has had basically the same gimmick his entire career(or at least in the WWE).
Rey has been the most stale character possibly in the history of the company. Sure he's been gone in spurts. You know why? His body can't hang anymore.
Obviously his merch is selling, so I'd guess he'll take his checks as long as WWE pays for him to.
This is one of those things that makes you really enjoy sports (and I'm putting wrestling in that group) because of the human-interest stories that come out of it. Doesn't matter if you care about who wins or loses, videos like these really make you appreciate things even if only for a moment.
Only thing I don't think is working is Cesaro. He was until they put him with Heyman. I have no doubt it's a part of a setup and will get better, but he went from one of the most over guys to one of the most neutral guys in one night by taking away the babyface tendencies he had. So unnatural to put him in the position he's in right now. Otherwise, they are on fire.
