Sorry for the wait guys. Stuff has gotten pretty hectic for me as of late but I’ve finally tallied up all of the nominations that best that I could, which you can view here - https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1nOMvx0Matpt4L-49qith8jdh69yt2wdz--CLA7D29ic. If there was anything I missed and stuff, just let me know.

Anyways, voting for the finals will run from now until after the Royal Rumble ends on January 26. The winners will be revealed eventually sometime after that. Here’s the link to vote so happy voting - https://forms.gle/q2yMnKNqccJBZw7A6

The first few posts are from this week's Wrestling Observer Newsletter. For the full newsletter and much more get a subscription at http://www.f4wonline.com/
Dave Meltzer's star ratings will also be posted in this thread should there be any.
Use this thread to post news as it comes through. Do not use the old thread for anything new, please move discussion to here instead.
NOTE - There will be no new thread next week as Dave will be on the Jericho Cruise.

> The Royal Rumble, with just one Raw left, still has only a few things announced. The 1/25 show at Minute Maid Stadium in Houston is expected to draw about 36,000 fans and be packed. The advance was more than 30,000 a few weeks ago. There are tons of secondary market tickets out with a $34 get in price. Unlike in the past when they would run four shows in the same market on big show weekends, this time the 1/23 Smackdown show will be from Dallas and the 1/26 Raw will be from San Antonio.

> There are two shows in Houston, the Rumble, and the Worlds Collide show the night before at the Toyota Center. Worlds Collide ticket sales are very weak, basically ringside and most but not all of 100s as they haven’t sold out the side of the hard camera, and the rest of the building isn’t for sale. Similarly, the 2/16 Takeover show in Portland also has a weak advance. About 60 percent of the 100s that would normally be for sale are on sale, not including what you’d expect not for sale due to the stage. They are not opening up any other seats at this point for Worlds Collide. The secondary market get in price is $26 for lower level tickets.

> Portland is a little better, with about 60 percent of the 100s and 60 percent of the 200s up for sale and a $38 get in price.

> Announced for the Rumble, besides the two matches, are Bray Wyatt vs. Daniel Bryan for the Universal title, Becky Lynch vs. Asuka for the Raw women’s title and Roman Reigns vs. King Corbin. Reigns and Corbin are also scheduled for the Rumble, so they could do a thing where one of them loses but then comes back and wins the Rumble. There’s no obvious Rumble winner this year, but Reigns winning to challenge Wyatt is a possibility. Brock Lesnar, the WWE champion, will be entering the Rumble at No. 1 and whoever he is to face at Mania, that would probably be a guy that either eliminates him or shoots an angle with him.

> Names announced for the men’s rumble are Lesnar, Reigns, A.J. Styles, Erick Rowan, Randy Orton, Rey Mysterio, Ricochet, Drew McIntyre, Elias, Corbin, Dolph Ziggler, Otis, Tucker, Rusev, Bobby Lashley, Aleister Black and Buddy Murphy. Cain Velasquez has been told that he will be in. From that list, I only see Reigns and McIntyre as strong shots of winning with Corbin, Black or Orton as outside shots. The only names announced for the women’s match are Charlotte Flair, Alexa Bliss, Sarah Logan and Nikki Cross.

> Bayley vs. Lacey Evans for the Smackdown women’s title and Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Braun Strowman for the IC title continue to be built up. Both were on the TLC schedule, but the decision was to move the former to Rumble, although it hasn’t been announced for Rumble. The latter didn’t happen due to Strowman’s injuries and not being cleared in time for TLC, but Strowman pinned him on television this past week. Andrade vs. Humberto Carrillo was being groomed for the U.S. title, but Andrade first has a ladder match for the title with Mysterio on Raw. Carrillo should be returning soon for that program but whether it’ll be on Rumble isn’t clear. Additionally, New Day vs. The Miz & John Morrison is the Smackdown title match they are starting to build.

> World’s Collide at this point has five matches announced, and when it comes to Takeovers, that could be the entire show. The bouts are Imperium (Walter & Alexander Wolfe & Marcel Barthel & Fabian Aichner) vs. Undisputed Era (Adam Cole & Kyle O’Reilly & Roderick Strong & Bobby Fish), Rhea Ripley vs. Toni Storm for the women’s title, Tommaso Ciampa & Johnny Gargano vs. Tyler Bate & Trent Seven, Angel Garza defending the cruiserweight title in a four-way and Finn Balor vs. Ilja Dragunov.

> On paper, all of those matches look very strong and there have been angles shot for all on television, but they are more thrown together with one angle and little follow-up in most cases aside from the eight-man tag. In the cruiserweight match, one of Garza’s three opponents will be Isaiah Scott, while the other two will likely Jordan Devlin and Travis Banks. Devlin vs. El Ligero and Banks vs. Brian Kendrick are both being taped this coming weekend at the NXT U.K. tapings to determine the other two slots.

> Tessa Blanchard was the center of controversy on 1/12 for her past on the day she was booked to become the first female pro wrestler to win a male world championship on a PPV show. The Impact Hard to Kill show was to culminate a year-long storyline where Blanchard continued to wrestle men, in particular Sami Callihan, and came close but never beat Callihan (who later became world champion) nor won the X Division or world title.

> The company made the call a long time back to make Blanchard. 24, its top star. The idea was to push her by having her come close and fail in multiple big matches against men, with the idea they could showcase the chase of a woman to the world heavyweight championship level as a calling card. It was a storyline that wouldn’t be duplicated since none of the other promotions that have national television in the U.S., WWE, New Japan, AEW, MLW or ROH were doing intergender singles matches, which Blanchard among others had made popular on independent shows the past few years.

> Blanchard is the daughter of Tully Blanchard, but who was raised from childhood by Terry “Magnum T.A.” Allen, her father’s most famous career rival when Allen married Blanchard’s ex-wife. Blanchard has been controversial for years, since she was a standout for WWE at the Mae Young Classic, but due to a number of issues, even with her looks, heritage and ability, they passed on signing her. There was always talk of attitude issues and other problems, including issues of not getting along with talent, that followed her career in its early years including in Japan. It was those issues that in a sense also helped make her career, because she became the biggest female star on the independent scene, and popular in matches against men, including a notable bout with Brian Cage.

> Although both Don Callis and Scott D’Amore at Impact have long tenures and have in the past had a more traditional view on wrestling, they felt from the start of their tenure running the creative end in late 2018 to make Blanchard into the top star, basically remove her from the women’s division and work with almost exclusively men, feeling that there could be a fan backlash of pushing a woman that hard and having her beat men. It did seem to work as when she didn’t win the X Division title on PPV, there were fans complaining about how Impact would never let her hold a men’s title, which was the exact reaction they were looking for.

> For whatever reason, the day before the PPV, Blanchard sent out a tweet saying, “Hey women, try supporting one another. Cool things happen.” This touched a nerve with women who had worked with her in the past. Most notable was Allysin Kay, who was women’s champion in Impact as Sienna in 2016, who wrote, “Remember when you spat in a black woman’s face and called her the N word in Japan? Was that you `supporting women?’ The audacity of this tweet.”

> WWE has issued an internal decree that going forward, the WWE NXT Women's Championship will be referred to and described as simply the "NXT Championship", PWInsider.com has confirmed. The decision was made to make the remove the gender-specific designation of the championship.

> This past week on WWE Backstage, Raw Women's Champion Becky Lynch discussed her belief that WWE should stop referring to the women's division as such and just present everything, male or female, as just wrestling, believing that the history had been made and it was time to present things in a more progressive fashion.

> WWE's change in how the NXT division will refer to the championship, currently held by Rhea Ripley, is obviously the first step in that direction, but there is no word yet whether Raw or Smackdown will be following suit.

AEW is many things, but in light of recent news, it is undeniably one thing (soon): profitable. Love it or hate it as a fan, overall, people seem happy to work for them, they get more creative freedom, and they'll be making money through the next three or whatever years.

Which wrestler who fell for Vince's "that money mark promotion will fold within a year" bullshit and chose to stay within The Temple do you think feels like the biggest gaping fucking asshole right now?

Seffer probably. He was positioned as the face of the company in a time where they were drawing like shit and public opinion is overwhelmingly negative. He stayed on for a guaranteed spot as top guy, whereas Mox knew he was going nowhere and took his chances to help grow a fledgling company.

Seth was getting shit all to work with and instead of brushing aside criticisms, he doubled down on towing the company line and attacking AEW for no reason. That to me, atleast, indicates a level of salt. Seth has always been the type of guy who cares about his work and fan perception of him, unlike Roman who's the ultimate devotee of the John Cena philosophy of not giving a shit. He may say AEW is shit, but I bet he secretly wishes he could be in Mox's spot, being the most over babyface in American Wrestling and getting the chance to work NJPW's big shows.

If he were to break contract and go over there, he'd be hot as shit and be a top heel, instead of whatever boring bullshit angle WWE is making him do. Fuck, just imagining the heat he'd get attacking Mox after winning the title would be crazy and they can redo that awful botched angle from 2014 right.

Jerry Springer pulled big ratings too. It was still considered white trash garbage. There's a lot of white trash in America, so it was really popular, but you can't deny there was a stigma.

Wrestling being considered a nerd thing instead of a hick thing has made it less cool but more acceptable to people outside of the culture.

>Watch AEW Dynamite with /wooo/ on /wooo/tube - http://taima.tv/r/wooo and /wooo/alt - http://taima.tv/r/woooalt at 8pm Eastern//1am London. A replay of AEW Dark preceeds Dynamite by an hour in /wooo/tube.
>Tonight's episode is taped. Please do not post spoilers in this thread. Instead place them in the dedicated spoiler thread. On tonight's show:
  • Jon Moxley vs. Pac to become No. 1 contender to the AEW Championship.
  • SoCal Uncensored (Frankie Kazarian and Scorpio Sky) (c) vs. Kenny Omega and Hangman Page for the AEW Tag Titles.
  • The Inner Circle (Chris Jericho, Santana, and Ortiz) vs. The Jurassic Express (Luchasaurus, Jungle Boy, and Marko Stunt.)
  • MJF vs. Joey Janela.
  • "Hell's favourite Harlot" Priscilla Kelly vs. Dr. Britt Baker.

>Will Hangman and Omega’s winning streak earn them the tag team championships?
Hangman may be a drunk, but he’s a winning drunk. We haven’t had a single title change in AEW, which honestly has been great! They have resisted the urge to hot potato their belts and have attempted to make their champions look, well, champion worthy. But it’s been months now and while SCU has been killing it in the ring, Hangman and Omega have an inexplicably great thing happening. They hate each other, they love each other, they win, they drink (well one of them drinks), there is tension because of The Elite standings - every night it’s like a flippin’ soap opera and it’s fantastic. There are so many possibilities that all could work that it makes everything they do interesting. Imagine how much more interesting it would be if they were doing all that with gold around their waists!

Plus, a Hangman/Omega (c) versus The Young Bucks feud would be incredible. They teased it a little last week when they had a little tense interaction with The Bucks after their match and that, plus them all trying to keep The Elite together could lead to some compelling story lines. Gotta make all the work they’ve put into BTE worth it!

>Can PAC derail Moxley in his quest to destroy Jericho?
Probably no. Moxley may have a weirdo eye patch (will he still have it??? I want him to still have it.), but he has one goal and that goal is to destroy Jericho on his way to becoming the AEW champion. PAC is ferocious and is definitely deserving of a title shot, but it’s not his time. I expect many, MANY near falls, but there is no way that Moxley loses this battle. Even better if it’s done dirty or if Mox barely escapes with the win because then he can have a natural feud with PAC once he wins and moves on from Jericho. One thing we can be certain of, however, is that this match is going to rule.

>Can we expect any updates from our creepy collectives?
The Nightmare Collective got their butts whooped last week - which was an interesting choice considering they are being built up as the “big bad” of the women’s division. Of course, since Kong wasn’t in the match they can just hide behind the fact that they only lost because their muscle wasn’t there but I expect some kind of backstage segment or promo from The Collective. They desperately need it after their embarrassing showing last week because right now they seem like Scooby-Doo villains and it’s not working. The Dark Order didn’t have a match, but they did have an ominous recruitment check in video with a mysterious shadowy leader. Perhaps we see The Dark Order further their recruitment on Nakazawa tonight? If Omega and Hangman win it could be a good opportunity to remind Nakazawa that Omega has a new bestie and that he needs “friends that won’t abandon him.”

>Will TNT let Priscilla Kelly put her hands down her pants on LIVE TV?
Many of you will be familiar with Priscilla Kelly (PK) from the famously viral “tampon spot” but you’ll be delighted to find out that she is a fantastic wrestler too! She’s quick, dynamic, has a deep wrestling vocabulary and has figured out how to capitalize on the thing people know her for. Of course she can’t pull out a tampon every time, but a favorite move of PK is to put her hands down her pants right before a test of strength and I want to know if TNT will let that happen! Look, we used to have a guy rub his practically bare ass in competitors faces and I just want the women to have the equal opportunity to be just as gross on live TV. Plus, a Britt Baker reaction gif to that would be delightful.

What's with this dude? How is it that, in the 14 something years he's been an active wrestler for the WWE, he hasn't gotten ANY better in the ring? The biggest change he made to his offense was incorporating Bryan's spots in an attempt to get heat around the time he retired/started a feud after he returned. Only he still continued to use those spots well after he turned babyface and his feud with Bryan had ended.

He's such a fucking shitter it actually bothers me.

Regarding what?

Currently Kevin Condron (Kid Cyclone, Kevin Condron, Jervis Cottonbelly, smark) has been outed as another sex-pest, no underage stuff, but plenty of unwanted Dick Pics.

Formerly he quit CHIKARA along with Gavin Loudspeaker after they moved in together in L.A. he then claimed he'd done a load of unpaid, uncredited editing work (which nobody can confirm or deny) and claimed he was poor and destitute and not allowed to sell merch because he was part of The Flood, the current Heel faction, glossing over the fact he was also Jervis Cottonbelly, and was raking in cash like nobody's business, because he was involved in probably the biggest underdog story of the last few seasons, and who doesn't love Jervis? So yeah, that.

That's why Heyman caught heat for bringing Smackdown to record high ratings in 2003, even if Vince is getting 100% of the benefits he's not content. Everything must be the same homogenized trash across the board lest he feel something falls out of his complete control.

Haven't watched the Jericho Cruise yet since I always watch NXT 1st before AEW

Another good show the only match on the card that shouldn't have been there was Joaquin Wilde vs Finn Balor. That match could have went 15 minutes but it went like 3 so the Roderick Strong/Keith Lee North American Championship match could go 20 plus the Walter and Imperium run in at the end of the taping.

My internet has been a little fucked up these past few days also jesus christ World's Collide and Royal Rumble are back to back PPV's over the course of a 24 hr period.

>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…

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.
