>Watch Impact Wrestling on AXS with /wooo/ in /wooo/tube - http://taima.tv/r/wooo at 8pm Eastern//1am London. Then at 10pm Eastern//3am London, catch Xplosion featuring PAGANO and Reno Scum’s Luster The Legend. Impact Presents the SACRIFICE PPV this Saturday night. On tonight's show:
  • Tessa Blanchard & Trey Miguel & Tommy Dreamer vs. "The MILF Hunter" Ace Austin & Reno Scum.
  • TJP vs. Josh Alexander.
  • Dave Crist vs Rhino
  • Best of Five Series: Match 3: Michael Elgin vs. Eddie Edwards
  • Madison Rayne's Golden Opportunity Open Challenge.
>Six Person Tag Team Main Event
This Tuesday on IMPACT!, it’s the last stop on the road to Sacrifice, February 22nd on IMPACT Plus. Before World Champion Tessa Blanchard goes one-on-one with X-Division Champion Ace Austin in a huge Champion vs Champion Match, the two will do battle in a Six-Person Tag Team Match. Tessa will lead Tommy Dreamer and Trey into battle while Ace teams with his henchmen, Reno Scum. The match at Sacrifice is all about bragging rights – who is the top Champion in IMPACT Wrestling?

>The Best of Five series continues
Last week on the finale of IMPACT Wrestling’s recent tour to Mexico City, Michael Elgin defeated Eddie Edwards in Match 2 of their Best of 5 Series. With that victory, Elgin took the huge 2-0 lead over Eddie. This Tuesday on IMPACT!, these warriors will compete in Match 3 and Eddie is in a must-win situation. Will Elgin get the clean sweep, solidifying him as one of the most dominant forces in IMPACT Wrestling? Or will Eddie stay alive and get himself on the scoreboard?

>Walking Weapon Looking to Get The North Back on Track
Last week on IMPACT!, Ethan Page fell to Fallah Bahh in what many considered a huge upset. Now, the other half of the reigning Tag Team Champions, Josh Alexander, will do battle against Fallah’s tag team partner, TJP. If TJP is able to score the victory over Alexander, he and Fallah could be next in line for a shot at the Tag Team Championships. You can be sure that Alexander will be looking to shut down their momentum and continue their dominance in the tag team division.

>Caristico (replacing Niebla Roja) teams with Angel de Oro & Atlanis this time against Euforia, Felino and Ultimo Guerrero. Last week was the singles match, so it’s likely nothing is going on with this main event. Kraneo & Volcano team with Stuka Jr. against Hechicero, Luciferno, and Vangellys, giving the Panthers a break. Rey Cometa faces Universo 2000 Jr. in the lightning match. Diamond faces Misterioso & Sagrado again in the tercera. Sonic is in the opener. So is Yago, who hasn’t been on a stream since December.

>How's it going everybody Bryan Alvarez and Filthy Tom Lawyer here as you can see Tom has still got his internet situation taken care of

>Tom spends 10 minutes ranting about how this was all Bryan's fault for making him switch Internet Providers all because Bryan's service is consistently awful but somehow blames this on Tom like he was the problem

>Tom spend another 10-15 minutes talking about how amazing being a Professional Wrestler is because people pay him to beat up other people spends an additional 5-10 minutes talking about how much Bryan is missing out because he keeps using "my wife and child" as an excuse

>30 minutes have now gone by and the show hasn't even started yet

>Show finally starts Tom spends like 15-20 minutes on segments that Bryan only really wants to spend 2-5 minutes on because he wants to go on a tangent that Tom doesn't care about or completely no sells

>Creates a new weekly gimmick for the podcast that he doesn't even know the rules for and then delegates Bryan to do it for him despite the fact he doesn't even know what the purpose of what Tom's segment is suppose to accomplish but waste more of Bryan's time

>Would rather talk about ANYTHING other then Smackdown and even when he talks about Smackdown would rather use Smackdown as a segway to bring up things that are unrelated about what the review is suppose to be about

>Watch ECW The Doctor is In with /ECW/tube in /wooo/tube - http://taima.tv/r/wooo at 4pm Eastern//9pm London
>Watch MLW Fusion also in /wooo/tube at 7pm Eastern//Midnight London as our lead into RAW. On tonight's Fusion:
  • World Tag Team Title Match: The Von Erichs (Champions) vs. MJF & Richard Holliday
  • National Openweight Title Match: Alexander Hammerstone vs. Aerostar
  • Septimo Dragon vs. Gino Medina
The following description of this week’s FUSION has been provided by its executive producers: Richard Holliday, MJF, Alex Hammerstone and Gino Medina – collectively known as The Dynasty.

For 60 minutes your unspectacular, unattractive and financially underwhelming lives will sample the rarified air of excellence as the greatest athletes of any era invite you to their vision of Major League Wrestling.

It will be a dynastic night in Dallas as the Dynasty presents TWO title matches where we guarantee all the gold is coming home to the Dynasty.

In the main event Dallas will finally experience a championship team that brings dignity, honor and affluence to a city long in need of it. After being screwed by a crooked referee at SuperFight, the World Tag Team Titles are coming home to Richard Holliday and MJF when they finally catch those cowardly Texas born Hawaiian hillbillies the Von Erichs.

Witness history and watch children cry as the goofy Von Erich boys are dethroned and women line-up to kiss and party with the most dynastic force in tag team wrestling: Richard Holliday and MJF.

Viewers will be awe as they take a ride on Muscle Mountain when Alexander Hammerstone defends the National Openweight Championship against Aerostar. Experience the newest ride with the longest line as Muscle Mountain dominates the competition with a tan that radiates excellence.

Oh… and we also are allowing Konnan to briefly appear on our show. Konnan? You know, the guy who calls himself “the Hulk Hogan of Mexico” despite having NO tan and looking like the stroked out old guy in Breaking Bad.

Anyway, the Narcos villain of the week wannabe will offer up a luchador for Gino Medina to destroy and prove he is what he is (unlike Konnan): truly untouchable. Then again, who would want to touch Konnan? Gross.

Plus, our lumbering giant Grogan will flex his muscle (and valet our Bugattis)!

Join a man allergic to sunlight Rich Bocchini, AJ Kirsch and that eclectic Canadian dialect of Alicia Toot-Toot for a dynastic night in Dallas.

alright, the Dinasty episode is finally here! let's see if anything worthwile happens or if this is just gonna be a fun filler episode

a few thoughts:

>graphics and commentary in this entire episode are hilarious, they really made sure to make it look like Dinasty had full control of the show and it works fantastically
>Mance gets outright banned from the episode for calling the Dinasty a bunch of assholes, will that be enough stop him????
>Gino Medina opens the show against Septimo Dragon. Gino's in ring work is very sloppy, he can hardly transition smoothly from one spot to the other and his moves don't connect, Septimo tried his best, but the match still disappointed.
>Connan helps out Septimo Dragon after the Dinasty successfully attempts to take off his mask. I dont read spoilers but lets hope thats not a tease for a future match lmao
>also, it's really weird that they would let Connan do commentary right after what just happened, but maybe this is just me missing a couple of lines
>Up next was a match that while short turned out to be a lot better than the opening, the big power moves from Hammerstone and the lucha libre style from Aerostar allowed for the presence of a lot of counters. Hammerstone wins after ripping Aerostar's mask off, great heel finish, seems like this will be a recurring theme tonight.
>lil promo by Filthy Tom and the other guy with an italian sounding name, where they hope the Von Erichs win their match against the Dinasty, but only because so they can be the ones who beat them
>Von Erichs and Davey Boy Smith seem to have formed an alliance based on past history. good, makes sense, but these 3 guys cannot cut a promo
>Mance Warner manages to get inside the building by offering the body guard some beers and talking about "dancers". i actually expected a brawl or something, what a wholesome way to break the rules
>main event time, the Von Erichs beat the Dinasty for the tag titles after Mance Warner saves them by Hammerstone's interference, it's an alright match, not particularly exciting or anything, but it worked

>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…

the thing tho is... (and this is coming from by and large a Meltzer hater) he IS the tastemaker. He was the only guy consistently giving ratings to all major north american shows and crazy mysterious japanese tapes for 20, 30 years. So he essentially got the biggest headstart in the industry by the time the internet came around, kayfabe died out 100% and there could theoretically be other wrestling critics being heard. But the reality is, there aren't any. Ppl like Cornette or even Steve Austin are in a position to be that, but they aren't doing it probably because there's so much relevant wrestling these days and reviewing it would become a full time job (and the fact that it's star ratings matters, stupid fans just want a number to tell them how good a match was)

you probably remember this from just last year: Dustin Rhodes, an industry veteran with HoF pedigree, got emotional on social media over getting a 5 stars match from Meltzer. This is still THE accomplishment in the eyes of most wrestlers, to be approved by this one guy's taste and inconsistent, broken rating system just because he's been around for long enough to fool people into believing he has some say on what is "objectively good" in wrestling. I guess wrestling being thought of as a carny/circus-adjacent type of performance art (as opposed to a "worked sport" or wtv) is still young enough of a phenomena that ppl remain willing to deny viewer subjectivity. Maybe it's just teenagers and manchildren who genuinely don't know any better. But the fact is his taste is a huge part of what made events like this Takeover be what they are. If he's just A tastemaker with a devoted following then HHH probably is part of that following lol

I would agree that Dave's relevance is dying out, absolutely, but let's not pretend there won't be a "2020 MOTY Contenders" torrent making the rounds at the end of this year that instead of trying to find some collective consensus on well liked matches just makes available whatever Da Meltz rated 5 and up

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?

Macho not getting a main event run in 1993 where he put over Bret Hart/Shawn Michaels was a travesty, tbh

> if they stopped giving a shit what Dave has to say about them
Vince and co. have thought Smarks ruined the show for everyone else for a long time now. All they want is to stop anyone from being IN on what they do, they’re professional liars and that’s all. Nothing more, nothing less. Dave Meltzer spreads the truth on their bullshit, reports the shit fans need to know in order to avoid watching and supporting them at all costs, and in-turn does a fan service on grander scale than they are willing to accept... all the while doing fans a massive disservice at any chance they get.

Anyone opposing this reality is part of their monopoly and is by factual definition a shill. Anyone with respect for true unbiased journalism understands the value of Meltzer’s work, and everyone claiming he’s biased is a laughable fake liar desperate for control because thats what liars do, try constantly manufacturing more lies to control reality. Truth just being put out there is a threat to a liar because the truth naturally is its own defense, requires no manufacturing or constructing and is the reality itself.

They deal in images, We deal reality. Deal with it, Marks.

Also tell me this isn't the greatest stable in British TV thread

GCW appreciation thread.
Are they the best indie in the country? The biggest? The coolest?

Who are your favorites? What upcoming matches/shows are you hyped about?

I can't think of the last time an indie was on this kind of streak. Not even PWG puts out this much good shit in a year's time.

in north american indies the only thing as visionary and entertaining I can think of is Kaiju, but they do it on their free time and only have money to put on VOD like 2 or 3 shows a year tops so nah

Shimmer has the same problem and is the only other one I would go out of my way to watch the way I do GCW. If Beyond comes back they'll water down a bit of the GCW hype but honestly they were never as good imo

ppl seem to love Hoodslam and AIW tho. Never seen it. CHIKARA has a vision I guess but the top talent has left for greener pastures... but it's a hell of a school you never know when someone like Still Life will show up

oh and Warrior Wrestling appeared out of nowhere throwing money around to get some great looking cards (Rascalz vs Stronghearts recently, wtf) I'm not yet convinced they're not a money laundering operation

as far as worldwide... honestly if you're into women's wrestling and not watching EVE you're missing maybe the best womens promotion, joshi included (+ the punk promotion Progress wanted to be but never had the balls to). I mean I still prefer Sendai Girls but it's up there. wXw gets cool this time of year as well. Other than that it would get into a more lucha or puro territory which I assume isn't what you're looking for at all.

volume/chapter structure, bi-monthly. some shows are bigger when they run bigger venues but it's not a ppv buildup thing, every show is complete in itself. exception is mania weekend where this year they're running 5 shows in 3 days
