I swear they've been doing this for like 2 years and never advertised it. I'm pretty sure those weird camera things right in the middle of the guard rail is a 3D/VR camera. They had them on the posts for a while as well. Maybe they have just been building up footage or something but I could swear they had an offering of some events in VR, which was basically like front row seats. That would be pretty interesting tbh.

yep, they've been doing it off and on for at least a year. i think its actually handled by that NextVR company cause they do this for NBA and other sports stuff too. the nba stuff was pretty cool when i watched some recently, so i imagine this will be cool too.

iirc the post cameras were those high fps slow motion cameras. there was a period where they'd show the replay of something big in super slow motion but they don't do it as much anymore.

watched a couple of the vr wwe vids. one older vid (hhh/batista from wm) and a newer one (women's 3 way at ss) and they were both kinda cool but pretty goofy. both matches were edited down to like 5-6 mins but still pretty neat. the cameras are set up on various places along the floor or on the posts so you are kinda looking up at the video at all times, but that's how most vr video seems to be. you can also look around or whatever but there isn't much to see other than the crowd and the match.

hhh/batista started with a giant snickers ad, which was pretty hilarious, and then cut to shortened vids of their entrances. the hhh one looked pretty silly up close. was a little weird for the in-ring action cause any hits would make the post shake so the whole video would shake. a ton of shots of batista's ass too, and two good shots of someone getting thrown into the camera or some attacks coming at the camera.

the 3 way match didn't have the camera shake or the giant ad, both of which i was grateful for. it also had less of the forced "omg its coming right at you" and was more just shots of the match from all the different angles. there was one shot of becky doing a dive off the top rope that was especially excellent, but imo batista has the better ass.

i dunno if i'd actually want to watch a whole ppv like this but for matches i do like it'd be cool to revisit them in vr.

Finally wrapping up the end of WCW and it really couldn't be more fitting:

Ric Flair kissing the ass of a donkey to end the second to last Nitro, Ric Flair jobbing to Sting on the final Nitro, and Nitro ending with the McMahons promoting Wrestlemania.

What's really pretty weird is they kept up with storylines and even started/half blew off most of them and actually set up the matches for the Night of Champions Nitro. And arguably did a better job of putting over fresher, younger talent in the last 3 weeks after the deal fell apart than the last 3 months.

Ironically, the last Thunder is probably the best Thunder since 1998. It ends with a still of the production crew on the ramp waving good bye, the end of 30 years of wrasslin' on TBS. :mjcry It's been 19 years and wrasslin has yet to return to TBS.  :-\



Is it a coincidence that the last WCW PPV was in Jacksonville, which is AEW's homebase?  ???


I will say, 2001 WCW has more logical and coherent booking than AEW. You'd never have a dude on a 10 match losing streak get a title shot against Scott Steiner in 2001. Or Steiner get baited into a title match via Looney Tunes promos. This goes for all the titles. Everyone had to win a number one contender match or beat the champ in a non-title match to get an opportunity.

Boy Cody's promo this week was one of the most obnoxious, unlikable face promos this side of Seth Rollins. The display of opulence was a Ric Flair thing, even though Dusty did it from time to time, it wasn't nearly as just a blatant asshole showing off. Especially when you combine it with the smark bait promo surrounding it and how stupid it all is to begin with because Cody can book any match he wants. He literally dropped some smark line and looked directly into the camera for the reaction :dead

In case you were wondering about the ACH saga:

He did indeed get his release and returned to the indies, debuting in MLW a few nights ago.

He also has quit wrestling all together because he hates smarks who ruin it for him and everyone else.

He also explained his issue with Jay Lethal, which was that he (ACH) used the n-word too much in his common vernacular for Jay's liking. Jay slapped him and told him to stop saying it so often, ACH returned and took Lethal down, but was convinced to apologize to Lethal

watching some old tlc's since i'm going to it this weekend. some "highlights" so far:

2009 - christian vs shelton benjamin for the ecw title to kick it off and christian hits himself in the face with a ladder and bleeds so much the doctor has to come out :lol

2010 - cena handling the nexus solo :rofl

2011 - just started it up but an entire arena going nuts for zack ryder and king calling ryder "my dog" while explaining how twitter works to cole is really awful. i cannot count the amount of times king has said "trended worldwide" in this one match. :-\

Full Wrestle Kingdom cards have been released:


January 4:

Jushin Thunder Liger, Tatsumi Fujinami, The Great Sasuke & Tiger Mask IV (with El Samurai) vs. Naoki Sano, Shinjiro Otani, Tatsuhiko Takaiwa & Ryusuke Taguchi (with Kuniaki Kobayashi) Jushin Thunder Liger Retirement Match #1 (Special Guest Referee: Norio Honaga)

Los Ingobernables de Japon (SANADA, EVIL, Shingo Takagi & BUSHI) vs. Suzukigun (Zack Sabre Jr., Minoru Suzuki, Taichi & El Desperado) Eight Man Tag Team Match

CHAOS (Hirooki Goto, Tomohiro Ishii, Toru Yano & YOSHI-HASHI) vs. Bullet Club (KENTA, Bad Luck Fale, Chase Owens & Yujiro Takahashi) Eight Man Tag Team Match

Guerrillas of Destiny (Tama Tonga & Tanga Loa) (c) vs. FinJuice (Juice Robinson & David Finlay) IWGP Tag Team Championship Match

Lance Archer (c) vs. Jon Moxley IWGP US Heavyweight Championship Texas Deathmatch

Will Ospreay (c) vs. Hiromu Takahashi IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship Match

Jay White (c) vs. Tetsuya Naito IWGP Intercontinental Championship Match

Kazuchika Okada (c) vs. Kota Ibushi IWGP Heavyweight Championship Match


January 5:

Jushin Thunder Liger & Naoki Sano (with Yoshiaki Fujiwara) vs. Hiromu Takahashi & Ryu Lee (AKA Dragon Lee) Jushin Thunder Liger Retirement Match #2

Bullet Club (Taiji Ishimori & El Phantasmo) (c) vs. Roppongi 3K (SHO & YOH) IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Championship Match

Zack Sabre Jr. (c) vs. SANADA Rev Pro British Heavyweight Championship Match

Lance Archer or Jon Moxley (c) vs. Juice Robinson IWGP US Heavyweight Championship Match

KENTA (c) vs. Hirooki Goto NEVER Openweight Championship Match

Loser of Okada/Ibushi vs. Loser of White/Naito Singles Match

Hiroshi Tanahashi vs. Chris Jericho Singles Match

IWGP Heavyweight Champion vs. IWGP Intercontinental Champion





Truly baffled at some of this. No idea why Jericho and Moxley get singles matches (potentially 2 for Moxley) but Ishii is stuck in a filler 8 man tag and doesn't even get a match on night two. He's been the MVP basically the past decade running and has yet to be given a significant WK match. All the build up for Shibata/KENTA all for Goto, the biggest loser in NJPW, to wrestle in Shibata's place. Why the losers in the title matches on night 1 will wrestle each other on night 2 is beyond me. The months long Liger/Suzuki build up for a match for a lame duck show when it could have been saved for one of these nights since Suzuki isn't doing shit anyway.

Moxley and Jericho aren't working as reps of AEW, they have their own deals that both predate their AEW deals. The Dutch guy running NJ said he'd be open to an AEW relationship and there are no NJ/ROH shows on the schedule this year. With NJ running their own shows in the US now, who knows. AEW wouldn't let Moxley work the US G1 show or any of the other shows despite him being the US champion at the time.

Quote
Former WWE Superstar Big Cass (CaZXL) took to Twitter today and made a threat to AEW star Joey Janela.

Cass wrote, "Hey @janelababy. Say one more word about me and your life will end. Real talk.#HowYouDoin"

The tweet was deleted just over an hour after it was posted.

There's no word yet on what brought the comments on, but Cass and Janela had an incident back in September that could have ended with Cass going to jail, if it weren't for Janela declining to press charges.

You can see a screenshot of the deleted tweet from Cass below:
