Anyone fancy some uh, wrestling rockbusters? It's pretty simple, I give you the initials of a wrestler and a cryptic clue to go with them, and you have to guess the wrestler. So for example, if I gave you
>That bird has a bulging wallet (RS)
the answer would be Rich Swann. But in the spirit of Karl Pilkington, most of them are going to be far more tenuous than that.

I had a whole skit typed out using "The five of them all left (P)" as the example, with the answer being Pentagon (Penta gone), and Karl getting mocked because his name is Penta El 0 M now, but it got eaten and I can't be bothered to type it out again, so lets just play the game instead.

Here are my clues, feel free to post some of your own. The more questionable, the better.

They couldn't see him making fun of the martial artist (JM)
Take her on the floor in 3 4 time (W)

I know its fake but their game will come out eventually. Would love it if they'd approach it more like a Simulator-game than a Fighting-game
So, more of this:
> Seasons and statistics
> General Manager mode
> Revamped CAW mode with more "simple" content
> Tag-team division in season mode
> Trios titles
> Mid-season tournaments
> Fewer "Arcade"-modes
> A big library of videos, movesets, songs etc. for CAWs to use. For example some small indie-artists who need the exposure.
> Mod support for PC-version

Also, this:
> Fewer legends and re-skins
> Fewer match types
> Less intrusive controls
> Less button- and pattern memorisation

If its just a carbon copy of the WWE2K games then there is no point in doing it at all.
Knowing the Elite guys its probably going in the Arcade button-masher direction, which would be very lame

The only legends they could realistically have in the game would be DDP, Arn Anderson, Jake Roberts and Taz, which in the grand scheme of things are four pretty good guys to have in. Billy Gunn too, but who the fuck cares about Billy Gunn?
>Fewer match types
How many gimmick matches should the game have? Cause you'd want at least a solid variety. As long as they'd have multi-man parking lot brawls I'd be happy.

Any one of these would make the game awful, all of these together makes it sound like a cruel and unusual punishment.

Yeah.......no. Just no. Daniel Bryan was not just sheer talent. He had tons of charisma and personality. He had "Yes", he had "No", he had "Team Hell No", he had "Fear The Beard", he had pure technical wrestling passion and grit. The reason you think he didn't have all that was WWE's booking. The moment he was booked (somewhat) properly The Yes Movement took off.

Mizuki has the very serious and very real problem of Riho already having that gimmick. Carrying people to their best matches (another point I don't agree on) really don't mean much. Daniel Bryan wasn't "The Stone", who came out in shades and 500$ shirts and raised his eyebrow. Mizuki needs to get away from the frilly lace and the Riho cosplay.

Before I knew much about Joshi I always thought Mizuki was just Riho's little sister or something but turns out Mizuki is actually older, huh. 7 years experience is hardly rookie numbers either (but nothing compared to Riho's 14 years)

I don't think there's any avoiding her being compared to Riho if she makes it to AEW since they look nearly identical in the face, wear the same style of gear, and have fairly similar movesets

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

THE STUFF IN THE TUBES:
>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.

>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 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. 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 rig…

How often have you found yourself watching a wrestling documentary like Darkside of the Ring or just listening to a Shoot Podcast or whatever and someone who has been apart of the business brings up something that sounds like complete and total bullshit? Could we like create a list. To give some examples off the top of my head

>Darkside of the Ring straight up omitting Hulk Hogan's extreme cocaine dependency in the 1980's and 90's. Especially considering how 1/3 of the Macho Man Documentary was talking about how it was Lex Luger, who was a Steroid Addict because of Vince's need for every talent he considered in his mind to be a "top draw" to be as big and action figure like as humanly possible.

>Not only that but completely disregarding Macho Man's same Cocaine dependency inaccurately making it seem that it was strictly Lex who peer pressured Liz into taking cocaine and narcotics

>Darkside inaccurately stating that Wrestlemania 9 was a good PPV just because of the massive cost that went into running a Wrestlemania show from a Las Vegas arena especially considering how the main event of that show was completely shat all over because of Hogan's ego

As far as inaccuracies in Dark Side, Tony's story on the Brody stabbing is pretty sensational, with the smoking gun for me being "he cut the ponytail off his head". That's just ludicrous, and in his book he doesn't have the note about the ponytail, in fact IIRC he disnt Invader try anything, but on the show Tony says he's swinging at Brody like a shitty horror movie. I think someone in another thread recently mentioned how BS Abby was in that too.

Oh, and the Montreal episode, of course the episode where everyone wants to be guilty, they all want to be the one to say it was their idea. Jimmy C had to flex his encyclopedic wrestling knowledge by referencing a screwjob in Montreal from the 60s and claim that's why he told Vince to screw Bret, when in shoots he's said he referenced another screwjob when bringing it up to Vince. It's no surprise that carnies can't keep their stories straight, but when the truth is as bizarre as it is, I guess it doesn't matter

Dave Meltzer's star ratings are now posted in their own thread, so look for it.

More Meltzer mask edits...please.

> Matt Riddle dropped a petition on 9/7 in Orange County to get a restraining order against Samantha Tavel (Candy Cartwright), who had accused him of sexual assault on Twitter and in an article in Newsweek, and is now expected to file a slander/libel lawsuit against Tavel on 9/22 for alleging he sexually assaulted her.

> The first filing was simply to get a restraining order to keep her from the Performance Center, where she allegedly came and caused a scene on December 19, 2019.

> Tavel and her lawyers were given five-day notice of plans to file a suit by Riddle against her in Marion Country in Florida on or after 9/22 based on giving five day notice based on comments that came out after the petition was dropped, claiming Tavel made up the claim and was attempting to ruin his career after he broke up with her.

> Riddle and Tavel had a relationship for several years on-and-off and after it was broken off by Riddle a second time, Tavel accused Riddle of sexual assault from a few years earlier, said to be in a van that the two along with others from Evolve were traveling together to shows in. Her claim is that nobody else in the van was aware of it because they were sleeping.

> WWE was aware of the issues between the two for more than one year and had looked into the case at the time and it had not affected Riddle’s standing with the company. Riddle had contemplated filing for a restraining order against her last year but it was said that he decided against doing so after he talked with WWE about the situation. The two had a relationship at the time of the alleged sexual assault and continued the relationship after that time period.

> According to an article by David Bixenspan on the Babyface vs. Heel web site, Riddle alleged by checking a category when filing for the original restraining order that Tavel had committed stalking, previously threatened, harassed, stalked, cyberstalked or physically abused Riddle, threatened to harm Riddle or family member or individuals close to him, used or threatened to use weapons against him such as guns of knives, destroyed personal property, including but not limited to telephones and other communication equipment, clothing or other items belonging to Riddle.

> The claim is that Riddle withdrew the petition in Orange County as backing down on the claims, but the warning from Riddle’s side that they were now planning a libel lawsuit against Tavel seems to contradict that.

> Daniel Rose, the attorney for Riddle, alleged that there had been no public statements by Tavel in several months and they believed there would not be when they pulled the attempt to get the order three days prior. The article indicated they pulled it based on a filing from Tavel’s attorney trying to deny the order and to get it thrown out to where Riddle’s side would have to pay Tavel’s court costs.

> In Riddle’s original petition he was attempting to keep Tavel from coming to the Performance Center. Riddle’s statement was that he met Tavel in 2016, and they started having an affair on November 6, 2017. He said he tried to break up with her in June 2018, but they ended up still seeing each other under he broke up with her again in July 2019.

> He said Tavel systematically stalked, cyberstalked and harassed himself and hi wife since July 9, 2019. He said he blocked her on social media and changed his phone number, only for her to text him from a burner phone saying that if he didn’t leave his wife for her that he would be sorry and she would ruin his career.

> Days later he and attorney Daniel J. Rose talked about filing a restraining order, but didn’t do it, but did contact WWE about the situation. The petition also lists that this past February (it was actually believed to be December 19, 2019) that Tavel came from New York to Full Sail University where he was working and she created a scene and had to be escorted out of the building.

He's always graded stuff on curves. The best possible match you're allowed to have in the WWE is going to be worse than the best possible match you're allowed to have elsewhere, because of the inherent limitations of the WWE Style and presentation. Likewise, the best hardcore brawl isn't going to be as good as the best standard 1-on-1. A four star WWE match is a four star WWE match, not a universal four star match. A four star NJPW match is a four star NJPW match, not a universal benchmark for what constitutes a four star match, and so on. This is not a secret, nor should it be in any way controversial.

LONG ASS POST. DONT READ IF YOU DONT CARE
You internet smarks wonder why pro wrestling is fucking dead and down the drain, and why the casuals don't watch anymore? BECAUSE WWE LISTENS TO THE "FANS." Smarks like the ones on this board.
Ones who reeee and screech about "muh roman bad" even though him saying "believe that" would get the loudest pops of the night. Ones who want all their precious vanilla midgets pushed.
"His in ring skill is impecciblbbl!! his workrate is throguh the roof!!" newsflash, DIPSHIT, PRO WRESTLING WAS NEVER ABOUT "IN RING SKILL." IT WAS ABOUT CHARACTERS AND INTERESTING STORIES. Now we have these indie-rific trash rasslers like Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn who are just happy to be there. Don't want to actively improve, don't want to have any say in the direction of their "characters", because they're scared of upsetting the (micro) management.

As soon as Chris Boring Benoit was given the title at Mania 20, the product slowly went downhill. Why? Because he's a VANILLA MIDGET. WHY CAN YOU MORONS NOT GET THIS THROUGH YOUR THICK SKULLS. CASUALS DON'T WANT TO SEE BORING VANILLA MIDGET KICKS AND FLIPPERS WHO CAN'T CUT A PROMO. HALF OF THE WRESTLERS TODAY DON'T EVEN LOOK LIKE WRESTLERS.

Which brings me to my final point, the look. Look at guys like Owens. He looks like the guy behind the front desk of your local Walmart. Guys like Tyson Kidd and all these other indie darlings look like fucking geeks, so no one believes them. If you walked up to a random person on the street and showed them a picture of the Young Bucks or Kenny Omega or whoever the fuck and asked them if they looked like wrestlers, they would say no.

Kevin Nash said it best when he commented on smarks like Meltzer. "Every year it's match Of the year: Napo Zago VS Nappo Zayno in the Kirokean Hallway."
Wrestling is dictated by smarks and will never draw in a causal audience again if WWE continues to listen to you internet goofs.
Fuck you.

To continue the cartoon analogy, a major factor in the initial rise of MLP in the last decade was the way it was written. Was it incredibly deep and complex? Fuck no. Did it understand its actual audience? Not at first. Was it a billion miles ahead of the braindead cotton candy zero conflict merch machine 80s show just on principle? Fuck yes. Friendship Is Magic was written like a standard 2010s cartoon, which was groundbreaking for a franchise that spent 3 decades as a soulless, mind-numbingly saccharine merch vehicle that had went almost exclusively straight-to-DVD for the second half of its lifespan.

I'd argue that perspective could be applied to AEW. People are so burnt out on the WWE machine that any new competition seems leagues better automatically, even if much of it appears the exact same to onlookers.

Yota Tsuji is already better in the ring than a couple of the dudes in the G1. Definitely better than Yujiro and Tacos. The main roster matches he’ll have with Shingo and Ishii etc gonna be tight

I kind of want them to pair him with Goto and have them run the tag division. Visually they could gel well together and it'd actually give Goto something to do.

Old management used to do those shows. Last one was back in 2016, around the time their financials got worse.

Anthem stopped doing the shows because 1) Oversea shows are expensive to do and 2) They were trying to rebuild the company after Dixie's mismanagement and that botched GFW run.

The 6 competitors will enter in order based on numbers drawn on 8/12. 1 & 2 will start the match. 3 will enter after 5 minutes. 4 will enter 4 minutes after 3. 5 will enter 3 minutes after 4, and 6 will enter after another 3 minutes.

As per the usual steel cage rules, a competitor can escape the cage by climbing to the top and retrieving a flag. In the past, the match has started with all 5 flags available. This match will start with only 1, with 1 more added as the next competitor enters. The 5th and final flag will be added when the 6th and final competitor enters. As the 6th competitor will not join the match until 15 minutes have elapsed, they run the risk of only having a small number of flags available to aim for.

Order of entry will be:
❶Big R Shimizu
❷KAI
❸Masato Yoshino
❹BxB Hulk
❺YAMATO
❻Eita

The stipulations & risks for each competitor were decided based on the results of the semifinal & main event matches on 8/8 in Kyoto, 8/9 in Osaka, & 8/10 in Nagoya.
They are as follows:

>KAI (as decided by R・E・D on 8/8)
If he loses the cage match:
• He must leave DRAGONGATE forever
If he is the first to escape the cage:
• He must join R・E・D

>Eita (as decided by the DRAGONGATE Generation on 8/8)
If he loses the cage match:
• He must join the DRAGONGATE Generation
If he does not escape the cage first:
• He must defend the Dream Gate against a member of the DRAGONGATE Generation
If he is the first to escape he cage, he incurs no penalty.

>Big R Shimizu (as decided by the Toryumon Generation on 8/9)
If he loses the cage match:

>The road to Wresle Princess rolls on through Shinagawa tonight at 11 PM EDT/4 AM BST at http://taima.tv/r/wooo2

Tonight we say goodbye to Mina and Natsumi as they both opted to not renew their commitments to TJPW. But while those doors close, more may be opening as we have new challengers to the juggernauts that is DayDream. Will the newly formed team of BeeStar do what other teams have failed to do? Or will their title aspirations just be a dream of its own?

The card:

Pom Harajuku vs Moka Miyamoto
Hyper Misao vs Raku vs Himawari Unagi
Miyu Yamashita vs Sena Shiori
Nodoka Tenma, Yuki Aino and Haruna Neko vs Mina Shirakawa, Mahiro Kiryu and Yuki Kamifuku
Natsumi Maki vs Hikari Noa
Yuka Sakazaki and Shoko Nakajima vs Mizuki and Maki Itoh
Princess Tag Team Championship: DayDream (Miu Watanabe and Rika Tatsumi) (c) vs BeeStar (Mirai Maiumi and Suzume)

Not happy about the results of the tag match.

MOTN was Mizuki and Itoh vs Shoko and Yuka

Pom vs Moka was rough. But I expected it to be bad.
