This Hana Kimura story is pretty sad. Hopefully we can re-examine the effects of reality TV.

Dude it’s people’s own fault like don’t use social media or read that shit

Half the comments are evil and vile. The others are omg you are amazing and my hero.

It’s like a bully you can’t see or fight

Jay White... There isn’t one person not named Will Ospreay who has improved like he has in the last two to three years.

Just noting that Wrestle Kingdom was a pleasure to watch. Considering the circumstances, the men and women in Japan have done a hell of a job in putting on an event that looked and felt like a big show, yet very strictly adhered to the medical advice given.

I recommend the Yokozuna documentary if anyone has WWE Network or can find it elsewhere. A mostly untold story with a sad ending.

I'm a bit late to reply to this one but I thought I'd note that of all the major companies, NJPW has dealt with the pandemic the best. I think the way they are set up to come across more like an actual sport has helped. The matches also didn't suffer too much as Japanese crowds are quiet most of the time anyway.

On another note... Can we get this thread name changed to Pro Wrestling or something similar to the MMA thread? Dylan, make yourself useful.

Damn I haven't seen Dylan or Shaun post on the forums for a long time now that I think about it.

Also I'm glad people are clueing into the fact that AEW is absolutely horrible from in-ring and character perspectives. Theres actually a lot I hate about the company and some of the people there (young bucks, tony khan, etc.) but I can't get into it now because all I have on my mind now is the derby in a few hours.

But I do think AEW is probably bischoff/hogan TNA era levels of bad if not worse.

AEW isn't horrible. They just need to clean a few things up and also stop doing nerdy storylines. They've kept their audience steady throughout their run.

They've kept their audience steady but it's not like the numbers are anything to write home about, and I'm not even going to mention anything about their reddit demographic.

My point wasn't about audience, but more so the fact that a lot of guys on the roster are just bad wrestlers who are there because of who their friends are or because they want to lure wrestlers from other promotions. The entertainment I get from wrestling a lot of the time is based on how immersed I feel, and I don't feel that at all with AEW. There's a lot of stupid spots, A LOT of wrestlers standing around waiting for the next sequence, and just in general a lot of botchy and unprofessional looking moments going on (a guy literally got knocked out cold during the match and they continued to perform spots on his body lmfao). I'm just horribly sick of the over the top over choreographed wrestling that's been popular there. Wrestling is literal fake fighting and that style makes it look a lot worse imo. The Marko Stunt stuff is old also btw.

There are definitely quite a few guys I like there though and I'll watch their matches if I hear it's good but I feel like their best work was still their pre-AEW days except maybe Moxley but he was a shitter in WWE so it's whatever.

Wrestlemania season is always super predictable and linear tbh. Other than the ending the ppv went exactly as anyone would've seen it go.

Most of the comments on this thread (including mine about NJPW) have aged like milk.
