>Women dominate the top-ranks for NXT by this quarter-hour "over/under expectations" viewership analysis.
>It's remarkable that women dominate the top-ranks for NXT by this analysis. Likewise, the individual male main eventers for NXT are absent from the top end of the list, although Adam Cole's Undisputed Era makes the list.

>AEW is topped by Chris Jericho's Inner Circle stable, followed by MJF and Cody who are involved in a feud.

NXT lead men are vanilla midgets, creme de la creme of the indie scene, which is why no one cares about them. The women are dominant are hot. Men like that, though few will admit it.

I watched NXT Portland after not following the product for several months. Loved Lee vs Dijak and the women's hardcore match was great before the shit finish, but just couldn't be fucked watching Gargano vs Balor and turned it off. It's like the least interesting match up to me.

I don't believe that "vanilla midgets" are inherently bad, but NXT has way too many of them put in prominent spots having the same back and forth feuds, it gets tiresome. Fucking put the strap on Keith Lee or go all in and make Ripley the ace. She's green, but her big fat titties and thick ass keep me entertained regardless.

Every time I think about Jeff Hardy's run in 2009 I get a little sad. When he left WWE he was leaving right at the start of what appeared to be his breakout push. He was in good shape, had just won his 3rd world title in a year, was rivaling Cena in merch sales, was over as hell, and was coming off of a series of great feuds with Edge and Punk. He was on fire but then he quit, got fat, did a lot of drugs, and never really seemed to recover. Dude went from clawing his way to the top in 2009 to having to be shoot pinned in 2011 because he showed up in no shape to wrestle and I always wondered what would've happened if he stayed the course and stayed clean. He could've easily maintained his spot as #2 babyface and probably would've kept winning titles. Maybe he would've gotten a Wrestlemania feud with Taker, a program with Brock, a high profile match with Cena, an eventual heel turn against Punk? Idk, that would've been cool. I feel like there's a LOT of money that was left on the table with Jeff.

What are some things that could've been different if he stayed? What are some other big what ifs?

>Watch WWE NXT with /wooo/ in /wooo/2 - http://taima.tv/r/wooo2 and /wooo/alt2 - http://taima.tv/r/woooalt2 at 8pm Eastern//1am London. After NXT Miz and Mrs will air at 10pm Eastern//3am London in /wooo/tube and /wooo/alt. On tonight's show:
  • The Velveteen Dream vs. Roderick "don't talk to me or my son ever again" Strong.
  • WWE NXT Cruiserweight Championship bout: Jordan "Jaysus, the head on 'em" Devlin (c) vs. Lio Rush.
  • Chelsea Green (with Robert Stone (formerly known as Robbie E tho, now doing a Tony Khan gimmick)) vs. Kayden Carter (Formerly known as Lacey Lane, Afro-Ninja)
>The Velveteen Dream returns to action against Roderick Strong
> Tonight, The Velveteen Dream will compete for the first time since October, when he goes one-on-one with Roderick Strong. Strong — who dethroned Dream as NXT North American Champion — along with The Undisputed ERA forced Dream out of action by brutally attacking him. His Purple Highness didn’t forget that, and made sure The Undisputed ERA wouldn’t forget him either. Dream attacked The Undisputed ERA upon his return before revealing a new pair of tights bearing the image of Roderick Strong’s wife, Marina Shafir, and son. Strong was fuming one week later and demanded an apology from Dream. He didn’t get one. Instead, The Velveteen Dream once again played his mind games, showing off his new ring gear once again, sending Strong into a rage. What will happen when these bitter rivals clash?

>NXT Cruiserweight Champion Jordan Devlin defends against Lio Rush
>NXT Cruiserweight Champion Jordan Devlin will make his first defense of the title tonight on USA Network, when he takes on No. 1 Contender and former champion Lio Rush. The Man of The Hour defeated another former titleholder, Angel Garza, in a thrilling battle to earn the right to challenge Devlin. But the current champion quickly arrived to tell his challenger not to think too big, as Rush is just the next stop on the Jordan Devlin Cruiserweight Championship Tour. Will Rush make Devlin eat his words, or will the champion show why you never bet against an ace?

>Chelsea Green looks to relaunch The Robert Stone Brand against Kayden Carter
> After Kayden Carter defeated Chelsea Green two weeks ago, The Robert Stone Brand will “relaunch” tonight with a rematch between the two Superstars. The fiery Filipina caught Green off guard with a roll-up in their first encounter, leaving Green furious and sending Stone back to the drawing board. Will the relaunch of Chelsea Green pay off, or will Carter make Green & Stone’s plans go up in smoke once again?

>What will be the fallout of Johnny Gargano’s shocking actions at TakeOver?
>Johnny Gargano shocked the NXT Universe at TakeOver: Portland when he bashed Tommaso Ciampa with the NXT Championship, bringing The Blackheart’s quest to reclaim Goldie and his life to a screeching halt. Why did Gargano attack Ciampa just weeks removed from their tag team reunion at Worlds Collide?

>Watch AEW Dynamite with /wooo/ in /wooo/tube - http://taim.tv/r/wooo and /wooo/alt - http://taima.tv/r/woooalt at 8pm Eastern//1am London. At 7pm Eastern//Midnight London a replay of AEW Dark will lead into Dynamite. On tonight's show:
  • Steel Cage Match: Cody vs. Wardlow
  • Chris Jericho's Bounty Hunter Jeff Cobb vs. Jon Moxley.
  • AEW Tag Team Championship match: Kenny Omega & Adam Page (c) vs. The Lucha Brothers.
  • Tag Team Battle Royal to earn a Championship match at Revolution PPV: The Young Bucks, SCU, The Strong Hearts, The Best Friends, The Dark Order, Private Party, Butcher & The Blade, Santana & Ortiz, H2, Jurrasic Express.
>Cody will face Wardlow inside a steel cage
Tonight's episode of Dynamite will see the first-ever steel cage match on AEW history as Cody faces Wardlow. Cody has to beat Wardlow tonight, if he wants to get his hands on MJF at the Revolution PPV on 29th February. Cody will have a tough task ahead of him tonight when he goes one on one with 'Mr. Mayhem' himself and there's more than a good chance that MJF will be on hand to make things as difficult as possible.

>Jeff Cobb faces Jon Moxley in his first AEW match
The main event of last week's episode of Dynamite saw Moxley take on the Inner Circle's Santana. Moxley got the victory but was then ambushed by the Inner Circle. Chris Jericho then called out his hired gun Jeff Cobb. He marched down to the ring and took Moxley on a tour of The Islands. Cobb isn't signed full-time with AEW and will face Moxley tonight in his first match for the company. Can Moxley beat the odds again and pick up another win tonight?

>Will we see new Champions crownded?
There has been tension in The Elite in recent weeks, stemming from problems between Hangman Page and The Young Bucks. Page and Omega will defend their Titles against The Lucha Bros tonight and will be hoping that there's no distractions to get in their way. The Lucha Bros are at the top of their game and will have a good chance of leaving with the titles if Omega and Page are not at the top of their game.

>Tag-Team Battle Royale (winners get a shot at the AEW Tag-Team Championships)
A massive tag-team Battle Royale has been announced for tonight's show. The winners will go on to challenge for the AEW World Tag-Team Championships. Among the participants are SCU, The Jurassic Express and The Young Bucks.

>We went a whole year without a new thread. RIP Hiromu thread

THE STUFF IN THE TUBES:
>Puro Tube is on Tuesdays at 3pm EDT / 8pm BST in /wooo/tube -http://taima.tv/r/wooo and mainly shows promotions outside of Dragon Gate and NJPW. Join in as everyone argues why their favorite fed is superior and Yanopost, Anopost, CIMApost and dance like Keita until your tummy is full from all that snackpine.
>DG Tube is on Thursdays at 8pm EDT / 1am BST in Mondai Night Ryu -http://taima.tv/r/mondainightryu and features the latest and classic Dragon Gate shows. Other stuff is featured here from time to time as well. (like cheesy 80s films or the mega marathon before Kobe World and recently OWE)

Outside of Puro Tube, there's usually a few puro marks in the chat that can help fill you in on storylines and find you matches. Just show up outside of big shows like Raw, and you'll find someone in there to help you out. Puro matches also show up in the playlist, so scroll around to find them. NJPW, DG, and DDT live events are regularly streamed in the tubes, check the schedule for details.

>THE MAJOR FEDS:

NJPW: Oldest and largest promotion in Japan. Owned by Bushiroad and is booked by Gedo. His booking gets the tubes riled up sometimes (all the time), but the match quality generally makes up for it. In the midst of something of a revival, and although you may argue that it is already drawing to a close, they are still doing good business at the moment. They run one of the largest shows in wrestling, called Wrestle Kingdom, every year on January 4th at the fabled Tokyo Dome. Most every show they run, large and small, air in the tubes. They have a slew of foreign wrestlers on their roster right now. They also have a wonderful streaming website over athttp://njpwworld.com/

Dragon Gate: Almost certainly the second largest promotion in Japan. Born out of the Toryumon promotion, which was the brainchild of Ultimo Dragon, their style is a mixture of classic puro, cruiserweight/junior heavyweight sprints, and lucha libre. Stable warfare is a huge part of the promotion, with most every wrestler in the company being aligned with a unit in some way. Though it is a big promotion, they retain a grassroots feel, with wrestlers selling merch before and after shows, and running many shows out of community centers and gyms. Most of their large shows air in the tubes, and footage is also posted here. They also have a show that is filmed monthly in their little studio in Kobe called Prime Zone which is wacky, fun, and full of Mondai Ryu schemes. They recently joined the streaming bandwagon over athttps://dragongate.live

DDT: Indie promotion gunning for the second-largest-in-Japan spot alongside Dragon Gate. Founded in 1997 by Sanshiro Takagi (a big Stone Cold Steve Austin fan), they have taken the western sports entertainment style to the next level with ridiculous matches and outrageous gimmicks, like violently gay wrestlers, promos done in PowerPoint before matches, championships specifically for dark matches, and blow-up dolls and ladders winning titles. Despite the goofiness, there is tons of talent there, with names like Kota Ibushi, HARASHIMA, and Kenny Omega having been regulars at one point or another. They have released ddtuniverse, which is like NJPW World. A streaming site for all your DDT needs. The other companies that work alongside DDT also have their stuff on there. They, like NJPW have a great streaming service over athttp://ddtuniverse.com/

AJPW: Still rebuilding from the glory days of the 80s and 90s, when icons like Jumbo Tsuruta, Mitsuharu Misawa, Kenta Kobashi, Toshiaki Kawada, Stan Hansen, Genichiro Tenryu, and Akira Taue loomed large. They were nearly killed after Misawa formed Pro Wrestling NOAH, taking most of the roster with him, but after a decade and a half of turmoil, they are doing fairly well right now, thanks in no small part due to the efforts of Jun Akiyama. The 80s/90s classics are a must-watch for any new puro fan, and their current product ain't bad either. They also joined the streaming sensation sweeping Japan right now. Their website can be found over athttps://www.ajpw.tv

NOAH: Founded in 2000 by Misawa after leaving AJPW. Was arguably the best fed in the world for a few years, featuring the Four Pillars of AJPW and new faces like KENTA, Naomichi Marufuji, Go Shiozaki, and Takeshi Morishima, but since the death of Misawa in 2009, they have taken quite a nose…

wait, they'll be back? You made it sound like they'd be gone for good, as if they went to NXT or something. Is that not the case?

Oh didn't mean to, my bad!
But Dragon Gate is working with MLW, so they're gonna be exchanging talent & according to Meltz, Ben & Shun are gonna head to MLW for a few shows when the visas are settled, while Jacob Fatu heads to Dragon Gate.

But of course once their stays in MLW are done, Ben-K & Skywalker are gonna head back to Dragon Gate.
