NWA Carnyland - 6pm EDT / 11pm BST
Carnyland 002 takes you inside a rumor that's got all the citizens of Carnyland up in arms. What is the rumor that's the talk of the National Wrestling Alliance? We do know a special emergency council meeting was called to be held after the show at https://www.patreon.com/Carnyland.

Watch how this rumor spreads through Carnyland and like all wrestling angles, it has a twist that you should have seen coming but likely it won't be spoiled by Joe Galli's news reporting. Does it involve NWA Worlds Champion Nick Aldis and Strictly Business? What about the President of The NWA, Willam Patrick Corgan? Could Carnyland already be closing after one week?

Size-wise he's probably about as big as Eddie and Pac, just not as shredded. But it's worth pointing out that either way, whether we're talking about Bryan in 2014 or Bryan in 2010 they're both bigger guys than the ones we're talking about. Darby and Sammy are still small even next to ROH Bryan.

and joey ryan said he turned down an nxt/aew deals so he could have creative freedom on the indies.

With the exception of a literal handful of guys dealing with Saudi Arabia & COVID-19, wrestlers don't turn down paydays for "creative freedom."

If AEW wanted them, they'd open up the checkbook and outbid Impact. and there isn't a single Impact talent that would turn it down.

>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.
>Shoot 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.

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 nosedive. It was being booked by Jado, but has since been sold. NOAH is now working on rebuilding. They are currently worki…

> On 5/17, on the weekend the Southern California beaches were reopened, Shad Gaspard, wife Siliana, and ten-year-old son Aryeh headed to Marina del Rey beach in Venice, CA.

> He and his son were body surfing about 50 yards from shore at 3:40 p.m. when a dangerous rip tide came. Lifeguards sprung into action. The lifeguards were able to save a number of swimmers. A lifeguard saw Shad and his son in the ocean. The lifeguard himself had to make a split second choice, a ten-year-old child and a huge adult, who to try and save first. One person close to the situation told us that in a split-second, you have to make choices and this choice was obvious.

> But even if it wasn’t, Shad made sure it was. While struggling himself, he told the lifeguard to “take him,” waving, and pointing to his son. The lifeguard tried to deliver a rescue can, a buoy-like device to tow the boy back to shore, but with the size of the waves, Aryeh couldn’t grab onto it. Three minutes later, Aryeh was back on land. He was scared, but he was safe. The lifeguard immediately went back into the ocean for Shad. A wave, estimated at five to six feet, engulfed Shad. He never came back up.

> “The primary factor yesterday was the hazardous surf, with waves at four to six feet,” said an unnamed person connected to the lifeguards to the New York Daily News. “We had strong lateral and strong rip currents through the entire Venice area. Our lifeguards were making hundreds of rescues.”

> Divers and rescue boats, as well as a helicopter were immediately called and searched until dusk Sunday night, and during the day Monday. By that point, even though nobody wanted to say it publicly, his not being found with such a thorough search of the area meant he had almost surely drowned in the waves. The large scale search stopped on Monday, but there were still people attempting to find him on Tuesday before the Coast Guard suspended the search. We were told at the time from someone who works in that field that what would happen next is the body would likely surface on the shore within the next three days.

> At about 1:40 a.m. on 5/20, two people noticed a body washed on shore, roughly one mile from where he went missing. When police were called, they immediately recognized him as Gaspard, still covered in the same swim trunks.

> “We would like to express our gratitude to the first responders who rescued Aryeh and to the lifeguards, coast guard, divers, fire and police departments for their continued efforts to help find our beloved Shad,” said wife Siliana. “Shad is a fighter, a warrior and a magical soul. We are hoping and praying for his safe return. As a family we thank you all for your concern and well wishes. Please continue to keep sending your positivity and prayers to our beloved Shad. From The Entire Gaspard & Chittick Family

> After the body was found, Siliana released a second statement, writing, “Aryeh, myself and the Gaspard and Chittick families would like to take this time to thank everyone for their prayers and support, as we mourn the terrible loss of our beloved Shad. Shad was our whole world and we were his. There are not enough words to describe what he means to all of us. He was our heart, our soul, our protector, our warrior. He was a bright force of nature, who brought joy to many through his joyous and gracious nature. The outpouring of love from Shad’s friends, colleagues and fans has meant more to us than you can even imagine. We’ d like to once again thank the lifeguards, coast guard, divers, fire and police departments for their efforts. Shad was and will always be our real life super hero. I love you more, my love.”

> Both Jayson Paul, better known as JTG, his longtime tag team partner, and friend Joel Eisenberg, and perhaps others, received identical text messages from him on 1/26 within minutes of each other. Eisenberg said the texts related to his concerns regarding COVID-19. “If ever I die tomorrow, just know I love you as a brother and friend forever, even past this…

>Because those are obviously the only two options for those guys
Sincere question: how would you book the Viking Raiders to get them *more over* during this empty arena period? What would you do to make them stand out?
"Have them wrestle matches and win" isn't enough of a solution because sometimes the audience still doesn't care. and it doesn't explain how you make everyone else on the roster stand out and be dynamic. Not everyone can have badass winning streaks. There has to be variety to keep the crowds entertained.

>not everyone can do the same shit & get over with it
If they can't get over doing the kind of stuff that every WWE main eventer before them did (including several who were also "serious" wrestlers in ROH/NJPW) maybe that means Viking Raiders aren't versatile enough to make it to the next level?

Stop expecting WWE to be something it isn't. It's not a pro wrestling promotion; it's a sports entertainment TV show. It's like D Bry said: it's a parody of pro wrestling. And Viking Raiders were never the most over tag act in either ROH or NJPW. Doing what they did in those companies has not made them any more popular in WWE; it's only taken them so far. Isn't it at all possible that they deserve some of the blame for why their skits might not be funny? Maybe the difference between Viking Raiders and D Bry & AJ is that Viking Raiders just don't have as much charisma?

Also skits and vignettes are not just a "senile Vince" thing; it's been a staple of pro wrestling for ages. AEW does it, Impact does it, NWA Powerrr does it, MLW does it, AAA does it, Lucha Underground did it, WCW did it, ECW did it, Memphis did it. And plenty of talents have made it work. Was it burying D Bry when he did the anger management skits with Kane? Is it burying LAX and Jack Swagger to do the Bubbly Bunch Flim Flam skits on Dynamite? D Bry made it work, Ric Flair made it work, The Rock made it work, AJ Styles made it work, CM Punk made it work, Jericho made it work, Asuka makes it work, even Brock can be goofy and make it work.

Is anyone still doing this? years ago we used to have a thread for DDP Yoga where people shared their experiences etc. I did it for about a year but eventually gave up, although I would still bust out a Diamond Cutter stretch every now and then.

Anyway, I'm thinking about starting up again. Did the Diamond Dozen today and feel pretty good. What does everyone else think about it? Have you done DDP Yoga? Did it work for you?

It works but you have to follow the entire program. If you just do the yoga but not the diet then you'll still feel better but you won't see much physical change. Do the yoga and follow the diet outlined in the guide and it'll definitely work.

Cross Rhodes is a bad finisher

This gif is old and I just grabbed it off a search and not saying this one in particular looks the worst. They almost always look bad.

The crossrhodes looks so bad! Opponents take it differently all the time and sometimes they can make it look good but the move almost always just looks weak and stupid. It's just a bad finisher for a guy who is a big player now. You can argue about the Peoples Elbow or other bad finishers done by my eventers but the cross rhodes just LOOKS bad. It looks like the guy doing it gets hurt more and sometimes it just looks like a rolling hug.

I think the art of a finishing move can sometimes be lost. The Judas Effect is a great example of a finishing move done right. When Jericho first did that move hyped it up before hand and when he did it I thought it was stupid as hell. "A back elbow?" I said. But then he kept murdering opponents with it and it became a powerful move. It became a move you have to avoid or he will kill you. Wrestling is fake. Book the move to be strong and it becomes strong. Finishing moves should be important and matter. This is why kickout spam can hurt a lot of finishing moves and be bad in the long run. It can be done on rare occasions for big stakes matches but I really think you risk making your move look weak doing that.

Now Cody has a finishing move that HAS won matches and isn't truely a victim of kickout spam(although people kick out of it often). It just straight up looks bad. So if the move looks bad it is up to the wrestler or the booker to make the move feared. Sadly Cody has done this shitty move across promotions forever and at this point I feel nothing when I see him setting up for it. It looks bad AND it's a poorly booked finisher.

He needs a new one and in general I think wrestlers should try to keep their finisher special. If you're going to lose the match maybe don't even get a chance to hit the move or just have them reverse it or other creative ways around it. Don't just have the opponent kick out of your move that should win matches.



This isn't an AEW dogpile thread...stupid that I even need to say this.

Yeah exactly. It's the perfect example of how the booking of a move and talking to other wrestlers during a show so they don't repeat spots or steal each others finishes is super important.

I learned that from a Justin Credible youtube video weirdly enough. He did a superkick and a tombstone and would make sure other people on the card were not doing it in ECW. Or he would let another person do it and do a different finish to compensate.

When he went to WWE he stopped doing the tombstone because of Taker. He was saying how disrespectful it would be if he did a tombstone and everyone kicked out in WWE. It just devalues the wrestler and the move.

(continued) nowhere was the devastation of this hold made more evident than the world title bout where this move debuted. Even a 7ft 345lb behemoth like Big Sexy could only tap and scream with an expression of pure anguish as if he was dying 1000 deaths. Such a bloody vicious maneuver there, never in my years have I seen such a decisive match ender.

At this point the UUG gimmick is holding her back. TJPW kayfabe is weird, because you;d think that the idol band would team together, but they wrestle separately and even against each other, with seemingly no problem beating each other up and then going back to singing a medley. Hikari has lots of potential but I feel like she needs a gimmick upgrade

So anyway, now that Stardom is ultra fucked, who are we going to see get pushed up to Mayu's level?

Heart says Momo, head says Giuria.

And hopefully Utami is the one that picks up where Hoshiki left off with the white belt
