>Watch WWE DEF JAM UNDERGROUND with /wooo/ in /wooo/tube - http://taima.tv/r/wooo and /wooo/alt - http://taima.tv/r/woooalt at 8pm Eastern//1am London followed by Raw Talk at 11pm Eastern//1am London. On tonight's show:
> Kevin Owens takes on Randy Orton
Randy Orton is challenging Drew McIntyre for the WWE title and the 13-time World champion has been one of the focal points of RAW in the pandemic era. Kevin Owens hasn't been in a feud lately, but that hasn't stopped him from getting entangled in various situations against various Superstars. Kevin Owens had a rather interesting conversation with Ric Flair on RAW and told him to tell Randy Orton to challenge him for a match. Surely enough, it was booked for a week later and tonight, The Viper/ Legend Killer will face Kevin Owens on RAW in a dream match, presumably in the main event (because that's the only slot for it). We're not sure what Drew McIntyre will do on the episode or if he'll even get involved in any way, but he doesn't seem like the kind of Superstar who would. We expect Randy Orton to pick up the victory, simply because he's been on a whole other level these last few months. However, we hope that it's going to be a good match with a good finish.

Last week on RAW, we saw a few people in hoodies lighting an important electrical system on fire. While the damage that was done then was minimal, what happened on SmackDown took the WWE Universe by surprise. The group, comprising of a few men and a couple of women wreaked havoc on SmackDown and what they did on RAW paled in comparison. RETRIBUTION, as they call themselves, took over the arena, even forcing commentators Corey Graves and Michael Cole to flee the scene. After an attack on a "crowd" member/developmental talent, one member took a chainsaw and cut the ropes. We've seen various invasions on RAW and WWE in general, but we're not yet sure who these people are and why they're doing what they're doing. We expect a groundbreaking announcement from RETRIBUTION tonight, whether it's a reveal of the members, their leader, or simply their motives. Either way, tune in to RAW because it's going to be an exciting segment. Whether it has SummerSlam implications or not, we can't be sure, but it's the most highly-anticipated part of RAW.

>What's going to happen on RAW Underground this week?
The entire WWE Universe was taken by surprise when it was announced that Shane McMahon would be returning to RAW. While there was some speculation for a few hours, we soon found out that WWE was introducing a new set of segments to RAW in a series of fights - known as RAW Underground. A Shane McMahon idea, it features a "shoot" style fight that's closer to MMA. There are no ropes and there aren't many rules either. While we saw some names such as Dabba-Kotto rise, some of the recognizable names included Dolph Ziggler, The Viking Raiders, and the three members of The Hurt Business. Towards the end of the show, Kayla Braxton hinted at the location of RAW Underground and The Hurt Business showed up and decimated everyone present. The episode of RAW ended with MVP saying "We're The Hurt Business. And business is good". RAW Underground is going to be interesting to watch and we wouldn't be surprised to see MVP, Bobby Lashley, and Shelton Benjamin continue to dominate while also possibly scouting for new recruits.

>Asuka vs Bayley - If Asuka wins, she earns a RAW Women's title match at SummerSlam
A few weeks ago, Asuka faced Bayley in a Champion vs Champion match and it was then-RAW Women's Champion Asuka who won on that occasion. Asuka then faced Sasha Banks and it was The Boss who defeated Asuka to claim the RAW Women's Championship for the fifth time in her career. It also marked the end of Kairi Sane's run in WWE as The Pirate Princess said farewell after that. Asuka, now all alone, has to face Bayley as her first obstacle to get her rematch against Sasha Banks - which she should have gotten anyway given the circumstances of her title loss. Either way, we expect Asuka to overcome the odds and secure a RAW Women's title match against Sasha Banks at SummerSlam. Bayley wasn't too happy with her partner after RAW Women's Champion Sasha Banks made the declaration of her match against Asuka without consulting her.

If AEW lets Jericho within a country mile of the arena this Wednesday they are just as bad as WWE. He is BLOWING UP all over the world for holding "socially distanced" (Pic related) shows this weekend, including one at Sturgis with 200k folks who are likely to be anti-mask conspiracy nuts.

Even if he tests negative the chance of a false negative is pretty high as he did essentially the highest risk thing possible this weekend. Overall its really fucking gross that he is running shows when cases are exploding AGAIN. Then people wonder why this nightmare is unending

For this long? I dunno man, its just kind of a part of life. How can people be afraid of the same thing for so long? I was scared for a few weeks but now? There may never be a vaccine or cure. I can't maintain that level of worry about something completely beyond anyone's control.

Frankly being able to worry about COVID is starting to feel like an almost privileged position compared to the people who have had to continue, you know, keep the world turning.

It's insane the number of times guys have been over enough to be the "top guy" in the company but WWE just didn't pull the trigger
It just shows the problem with making new stars is that they're too scared to make someone who isn't chosen ahead of time a top star

>Jeff Hardy 2008 (Had jobbed 3 PPV matches with HHH before eventually being given the title (triple threat where he didn't even pin HHH), he was the top merch seller and babyface on Raw at the time)
>Ryback (Hell in a Cell 2012) watch the Raw before the show, he was top babyface over, the match killed his undefeated streak, anything after this would have been too late even if they didn't start jobbing him out
>Braun Strawman (Crown Jewel 2018), he was the top babyface on Raw, did a lot of jobbing as a heel before this but the time seemed right here

Any more examples?
DO NOT post CM Punk 2011 or Daniel Bryan 2013
In both cases both guys were former world champions and had just won main events for the world title against John Cena (before dropping those titles to MITB cash ins), these are not comparable to the above who were not world champions/main eventers

this one always bugs me because both times it felt like it went the same way
in ecw he always came off to me at least as the guy who was gonna get the belt and carry over to raw or smackdown and then they just sorta dropped all interest they had in the guy.

then in tna he comes back with a new gimmick fans actually get behind him and yet it felt like every single storyline involving the pope got dropped ill never understand why not even tna would give the dude a chance is he hard to work with or something?

No way because Miyu did her usual "I dominate and then no sell your offense and kick you for the 1-2-3" stuff she does against anyone who's not basically Yuka or Shoko.

Yuka vs. Hyper Misao is easily the best match TJPW has had all year and I'd argue one of the top matches the company's ever had. Though I do think it might not have quite the same effect without the context of PaMi's backstory and the Misao storyline from last year. In a vacuum it's still a really good match but the context of it is what makes it great.

The Cauliflower Alley Club Twitter account is reporting that James "Kamala" Harris has passed away at the age of 70. Known as the Ugandan giant, Harris wrestled for numerous wrestling promotions including WWE in the 1980s and early 1990s. Harris was perhaps best known for his match against The Undertaker at the 1992 Summerslam PPV at Wembley Stadium.

Harris had been in poor health due to complications of high blood pressure and diabetes.

8 Teams, 1 winner. Most participants have yet to be announced.

>MLW Underground
This week the biggest prize in MLW is on the line, as Satoshi Kojima has his eyes and his lariat pointed towards one of Mexico’s all-time greatest, Vampiro.

The top challenger for the World Heavyweight Title has been the target of numerous messages from the mysterious Raven, but will have to shift his focus from the enigmatic Raven to the man that has taken MLW by storm, the reigning World Heavyweight Champion, Satoshi Kojima.

Will Vampiro be able to dethrone Kojima and end Kojimania? Or will the man with a lariat that hits harder than a cinder block be able to remain World Heavyweight Champion? Whoever walks out of this match better have eyes in the back of their head because two of the best wrestlers in the world are facing off to be the one that challenges next for that World Heavyweight Crown.

It will be the man who fell to Kojima in the world championship finals, Jerry Lynn, battling a man known as a gladiator, the master of the Awesome Bomb, and one of the most destructive forces in pro wrestling, Mike Awesome.

Three of the most dynamic athletes in MLW face off in our opening contest, as Fuego Guerrera and Super Crazy meet for the second week in a row on MLW Underground, but this time, “The Fallen Angel” Christopher Daniels has inserted himself into what will be a memorable triple threat bout.

PLUS: an update on the MLW Global Tag-Team Crown Championship tournament, and more on Raven’s mysterious issues with Vampiro, and Steve Corino’s venom continues to spew at the Hardcore Icon, Terry Funk.

Joey Styles as he calls the action from the historic War Memorial in Ft. Lauderdale.

Sarah Logan is pregnant. Mike is a dummy that hates the company, even though they gave him and his wife two good contracts and paid for his rehab and all they asked him to do was sit at home and collect checks.

Remember Stephanie's personal trainer friend Muffy who showed up for like one episode of Smackdown in 2000? She would scream that the audience was fat a lot and then just disappeared without explanation.

They clearly had a plan since she got a prominent spot, a name, and was treated as a big deal. For one week.

Welcome to this years puro thread! Continuing from last thread >>6243531

>NJPW Strong airs weekly on Fridays at 10pm EDT / 3am BST in English in /wooo/tube 2 - http://taima.tv/r/wooo2 and in Japanese in /wooo/alt 2 - http://taima.tv/r/woooalt2. Replays air on Saturdays at 4pm EDT / 9pm BST also in /wooo/tube 2.
>Puro Tube is on Tuesdays at 3pm EDT / 8pm BST in /wooo/tube - http://taima.tv/r/wooo and 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.
>Shoot Style Tube is on Sundays at 3pm EDT / 8pm BST also in /wooo/tube, which usually feature classic Japanese Shootstyle wrestling shows and matches from the past and present.
>DG Tube shows replays of recent Dragon Gate live events and PPVs when scheduled - http://taima.tv/r/mondainightryu

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.


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 at http://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 at https://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. CyberAgent owned DDT and NOAH have merged under one corporate umbrella CyberFight and they, like NJPW have a great streaming service over at https://www.ddtpro.com/universe

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.
