Guys I have just started watch G1 this past week and have been really impressed.

What are some essential matches (pre G1 2014) that I must see?

I haven't seen enough old-school stuff to say it's one of the greatest of all time, but I fell in love with Katsuyori "" Shibata vs Hirooki Goto from Wrestle Kingdom 8 this past January

All Japan TV only really ever showed the top 2-3 matches from cards with 7+ matches. There was also a strong emphasis on their stars, as well as whatever Gaijins were touring, so that's probably why 90s All Japan is seen as only being 4-8 main guys.

Thats pretty telling if he was never a wrestling fan. I have friends who never watched wrestling and the most they know is Hogan, Austin, Rock, Cena, Taker, Owen, Benoit and Angle. They know who Owen and Benoit are for obvious reasons. Thats about it. It makes sense though,

As usual, join us in http://taima.tv/r/woooalt for another edition of Tuesday Night Tube - the weekly block for your WWE Network fix featuring Main Event as it happens, live! I'm the one who is doing tonight's streaming since neither DashingCN or Mike can do it this week.

So it seems at the moment, WrestleMania Rewind and WWE Countdown are having alternating weeks in terms of what show is a new episode. This week, we'll replay the episode of Countdown that was missed last week. Next week, we could look at finding something else from the Network to play, like a particular hourly show that would alternate between times depending on Rewind or Countdown. Is there anything from the Network people would like to see? The movies with wrestlers in it will now be shown on Wednesdays in /wooo/alt by DashingCN.

> 7:30pm EDT / 12:30am BST - WWE Superstars
R-Truth vs. Alberto Del Rio and Adam Rose vs. Heath Slater are the matches you'll see tonight from the edition of Superstars first shown on Thursday whilst Impact Wrestling was on - I guess if TNA can't find a new place in October I guess Thursday nights will have NXT and Superstars straight from the Network, who knows.

> 8pm EDT / 1am BST - WWE Main Event LIVE
Tune in tonight to see The Lunatic Fringe Dean Ambrose clash with former World Heavyweight Champion Alberto Del Rio. Can class overcome the brash ferocity of the unpredictable Ambrose?

> 9pm EDT / 2am BST - WrestleMania Rewind
Relive the show-stealing Triangle Ladder Match between the Hardys, Dudleys, and Edge and Christian from WrestleMania 2000.

> 10pm EDT / 3am BST - WWE Countdown
Last week's episode that we missed. WWE Countdown's Most Riveting Rivalries takes a look back at ten of the Biggest Rivalries ever to transpire in WWE History.

From this exact moment on you now have complete control over the wrestling company of your choice, including talent relations, booking matches, music used, everything.
What do you change?
>Note: You can't alter paste decisions, and you can only work with currently plausible wrestlers, so no Benoit, CM Punk, Edge etc

>TL;DR INCOMING

>WWE:

>Bump NXT up to two hours to allow more wrestlers more time to practice and showcase themselves. Have an Arrival / Takeover style NXT program air every 3 months on the network.

>Reinstate brand division / loyalty. Lots of people only tune in for Raw, by evenly dispersing talent into Raw / SD, you would have to watch both shows or you'd likely miss out on some of your favourite wrestlers. Plus it adds personality to each show and it makes the draft MEAN something.Also, do the brand draft on TV again, it was hype

>Keep the heavyweight titles unified (he defends it on both brands like it used to be)

>Have one set of tag team titles for each brand

Use cage matches more often again for blow-offs to big feuds, saving the Cell for huge matches/no more HiaC PPV. Have escape the only way to win cage matches, with the door locked by default.

>There's a rumor floating around that Randy Orton has heat within WWE for intentionally working bad matches with Roman Reigns at house shows. The idea, apparently, is he's slowing Roman's progression even though it's clear Reigns is the next top guy.

I lifted this directly from Cageside seats so take it with a grain of salt, I guess.

But is Randy Orton the hero smarks need but don't deserve or is he the hero smarks deserve, but don't need? Or is he just a dick?

Sorry for the delay, just been busy on vacation. Anyways this week's winner and the 37th entrant into the Disasterpiece Theatre is Christopher Nowinski & Jackie Gayda vs. Bradshaw & Trish Stratus (WWE Raw 7/8/2002).

After Jackie Gayda was the co-winner of Tough Enough 2, she worked several matches on the Raw and SmackDown! brands. In one of her first television matches (a tag team match with Christopher Nowinski against Trish Stratus and Bradshaw, she botched several moves, the most infamous of which was a second-rope-bulldog by Stratus, which Gayda sold too late. After the match, Gayda was sent down to WWE's developmental territory at the time OVW for further training and then returned as Rico's manager as Miss Jackie a year later.

RULES:
>Be civil, respect each others' opinions, don't insult other nominations.
>All nominees must be at least one year old, taking place on or before July 25th, 2013.
>Please provide a link to your nomination in full, as well as a short description of why you think your match deserves to be in the Theatre. Youtube or Dailymotion links are preferred, but not necessary if the match is only available elsewhere.
>Do not nominate famously good matches. That's what our sister collection, the /wooo/terion Collection, is for. Support them!

We'll move onto the prelim once we get 15 valid nominees, or, failing that, 1:30 PM EST on Monday.

You can find all current Disasterpiece Theatre entries, along with statistics, at the official Disasterpiece Theatre Taimapedia page. In addition, we have a TaimaTV channel for the inductees - http://taima.tv/r/disasterpiece.

Pic related. It's been a few years since she tried to publicly wreck Billy Gunn's marriage & sucked Ricardo Rodriguez's dick right afterward at Wrestlemania 28. It's like she's the midcarder of ringrats.

Anyway, let's talk about famous or not-so-famous ring rats. There's also Sunny, April Hunter, Missy Hyatt, and a few others on the indy scene posing as photographers or valets.

Would like to take people on the wayback machine: http://www.prowrestling.net/article.php?Dot-Net-Exclusive-TNA-not-involved-in-Hulk-Hogan-and-Eric-Bischoff-s-celebrity-wrestling-project-554
> TNA officials are said to be frustrated by the news that Viacom, which owns Spike TV, is launching a wrestling project that does not involve them. As reported yesterday on Dot Net, Viacom and Spike TV officials had numerous discussions with Julie Caitlin Brown and Steve Church producers of the Wrestling with Reality project who met with Hogans management team regarding their copyrighted concept long before Hogan started telling the media about his project.

Now I've tried searching for specific dirtsheets but I can't find them atm but the gist of it was: Bischoff & Hogan were shopping their own wrestling projects around for awhile (the celeb wrestling contest, the micro championship show) At some point in 2009, they approached Spike about launching something -- and Spike were the ones who set up the communication between Dixie and Hogan for Hulk to come in and basically take over TNA.

I think we can all agree that the Hogan/Bischoff regime was the point of no return for TNA: too much money wasted, too much fan negativity, bad reviews, etc.

Dixie gets her deserved amount of shit but how come we don't Spike TV more shit for being money marks for Hogan & Bischoff and hindering TNA?

Wasn't G4TV trying to become Spike first?

The funny thing is that UFC going to another channel is easily the biggest mistake in their history and has turned out terrible for both parties.

Not really. They're getting paid more at Fox then they were at Spike. In fact when they were originally on Spike they had to pay Spike to let them on there. Spike wanted a bigger piece of the pie when their tv deal ended but UFC wouldn't give it to them. You can say they fucked up when the fight nights were on Fuel and were pulling shit numbers, but they're doing better on Fox Sports 1 which used to be Speed because it's in a lot more homes than Fuel was.

And while they were on Fuel, even though the numbers were shit, it was basically a UFC channel.

Moving isn't what's fucking UFC right now. It's mainly oversaturation.
It's turned out worse for Spike because almost no one watches Bellator.

There are people on this board who actually defend the decision to cancel the Rollins/Ambrose match

>B-but they want to keep it till Summerslam!

Well then don't fucking book it for battleground then. Do something else, use that "creative" team to think of a way that doesn't involve letting down and pissing off everyone who paid for that event and who attended live.

I'll get back to you in a minute, but first...

>>3872736

The problem with trying to capture the zeitgeist of today is that there really is none to capture. Pop culture is moving towards a more fractured and split-off state; there's no major "movement" in pop culture to speak of, and there may never be one again given the fracturing of the media landscape.

Now, back to >>3872710 - my point is that all the complaining about WWE booking doesn't mean shit to WWE. You can bitch and moan about better booking all you want, but it won't change a goddamn thing if you don't have "skin in the game", so to speak. If you put money forth to watch Battleground and felt dissatisfied with the show, you make a bigger statement about your dissatisfaction by asking for a refund (and telling them exactly WHY you want it) than you ever will with all the bitching and whining on /wooo/ or Twitter or whatever hole-in-the-ground forum you go to for wrestling discussion. WWE lives and dies based on how much money it makes, and if a bad decision costs them enough money to make that decision openly and obviously bad to even Vince himself, they're going to think twice before making that decision again. If you put money into the show, you can damn well ask for it back - and even if you don't get it back, just asking for the refund can sometimes send a message. But you're not going to change anything by sitting on your ass and complaining on the Internet.

Grab your nuts and take some fucking action. Or sit on your couch. Your call, funboy.

Didn't read the thread beyond the OP, I paid for the PPV and I love the segments they did. I don't feel ripped off. Cry more, faggot.

>Wrestlemania: Loss to John Cena
>Extreme Rules: Beats John Cena by escaping a cage thanks to liberal interference from Luke Harper, Erick Rowan, and a small child with a voice modulator
>Payback: Loss to John Cena
>Money in the Bank: Loss in the MITB match
>Battleground: Loss to Chris Jericho

Boy... as much as I love Bray Wyatt, his mystique and menace have sorta taken a hit this year, huh?

We're in a thread complaining about how Bray Wyatt got shafted by WWE booking. Can we stop acting as if someone needs to have wrestled in Ring of Honor or something to be liked by /wooo/?

Why the fuck would the fat mark care about winning? The whole gimmick is that he's just glad to be part of the show, but not in the 'Eugene' method of self-insert fan masturbation--did Mankind ever get over on winstreaks and title-chasing series? You want to make Abdullah the Bucher in to the Macho Man? /wooo/ sometimes thinks that the only way to have credible fatties running the ropes, they gotta have their credentials frontloaded and all on paper, as if Ws and Ls mean anything in this sacred sport of Kings, Kang. So the instant a big meaty guy who doesn't fit the usual rubric hits the scene, we all start mashing the playdoh in to every cookie cutter we got, then let it dry long enough to crumble when we bang em together; ah, you got some of your hot pink Kane mixed with my Big E yellow, and why did you make Kane so black this time? Now all our playdoh is just turning that Cena poopy color. Why can't you just enjoy it before it all dries out and gets thrown away? It's not gonna be like this forever, and you're gonna hate when Vince finds out you're ruining playtime for the Universe, and Bray Wyatt & company will turn in to 2000-era Mr.Rags faces wearing Plastik tees, Dragon Ball Z silkscreeens, and Hook-Ups sk8r shoes under some 50x50 Jnco jeans...I'm still holding out hope for a cross over with My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic--seeing as how Bray is basically Discord.

I think debuting Kenta and Devitt at the next live special or one after that is a good idea.

KENTA has to win the NXT title at some point.
