    The Miz is top 3 or even number 1 IC Champion of all time. He really did his damn best to make that title in the current era mean something. It’s amazing. 

    Not that I'm disagreeing, Miz is definitely one of the few IC champs that immediately jump to mind, but I'd throw Seth Rollins in to that discussion. I think he did a great job to elevate the title when Brock Lesnar held the Universal (?) championship hostage.


  2. If 2K really want to grab our attention they should start revealing the new roster members and showing off their sigs/finishers. I remember back in  the day when we used to get roster reveals like that...good times.

    Still waiting to see something that may entice me away from enjoying 2k19.


  3. Checked in with last weeks Dynamite after 4 weeks of skipping and I see nothing has changed. Young Bucks in an overblown and entirely predictable fiasco to open (thank goodness for PAC's legitimacy), Chris Jericho desperately trying to cling to relevancy, Taz & Christian trading their legacy for TK lolz, Darby Allin still trading his potential for indy mudshow hardcore garbage, and Sting still needing to leave well enough alone. 

    Was there anything remotely interesting or new that I missed?

    I want to like this, but tbh, MLW entertains more nowadays. Maybe it's the shorter format...


  4. I skip Miro's stuff now - it's just too disheartening to see. He should have made his impact by arriving and having a hard hitting smash up with Brodie Lee over the TNT title, win or screwjob loss IDC, but not as a bloody second to Kip Sabian 😞.

    Also..."rankings matter!"...crickets are chirping...

    AEW has the potential for much better than what we have been seeing of late. Though the women's division needs a lot of work (and a lot less green).


  5. Retribution might have made a bit more sense if it was full of those with halfway/abandoned pushes and failed/botched NXT call ups.

    Looks to me like those in Retribution have no actual issue with the company; they were doing pretty well in NXT...unless that's the joke - waiting for the punchline of a botched NXT call up (?).

    Whatever...this is the worst I've seen RAW in a long time, and I've been watching wrestling for almost 30 years.

     


  6. Virtually everyone is from some place else and will be initially recognized as this wrestler from that organisation, but given time and freedom, a new path can be forged for them.

    Having both the AEW and TNT titles held by ex WWE guys is not ideal, but hardly cause for concern. The concern is when more and more talent is acquired, giving less opportunity for the younger roster to both showcase and grow. We could be left with a roster that has a huge experience gap in the future - strong experienced workers and weak indy outlaws.

    AEW need to slow their roll and work on the quality of talent (get the psychology and fundamentals right), booking a weekly show properly (more conservative storytelling style) and building and executing a PPV well (break out the flippy and extreme $#!+ here).


  7. Okay, I don't say much on here and I AM an AEW fan, but I gotta give this brief review coz I'm seeing some major deterioration on Dynamite and I'd like to bash some of my thoughts around with you about this past episode.

    Opening tag match was great! A fine example of old school with a touch of modern spice. 

    Not sure what the clusterbork of an eight man tag match was supposed to be - too much action on the floor, lots of nonsensical  spots - with the exception of Jungle Boy, I just didn't get it.

    MJF = $$$ - put the title on him dammit...they won't yet...but just imagine...

    Ricky Starks! Please sir, may I have some more! I said it about him watching NWA Powerrr his kid is the friggin' future...

    Womens tag trophy something something zzzzzz...oh look a swerve in the winnerssszzz.

    SMH @ Chris Jericho...what a fall from this great and deadly heel back to his tired comedy routine. Yes, he can pull it off like no one else, but...why? The reinvention of Chris Jericho was something to behold in NJPW and early AEW...now...Mamosa Mayhem?!?!

    WTF with The Elite and the Dork Oder? Omega and The Bucks are not elite if it took them THAT long to beat those goons...and no, no one was elevated in that...only plus is that Kenny is starting to show some life with the beatdowns.

    Cody got squashed? (Lance Archer says Hi)

    No no no...those last two matches...someone mixed up the booking right? Cody should have had more offense than that...BUT, I do like the time and effort put in to the Dark Order here, right down to dragging QT and Dustin...I'm feeling very 1996 nWo about this direction...so there is finally hope for that. 

    If AEW can stop trying to put EVERYONE over, we'll have something heading back to the promise of late last year.

    ...or maybe I've been listening to Jim Cornette's YT channel too much (?)

    Hold on; the other image does show the title as "Grand" champion - why doea the clean image show it as "World"??

    Now that I look at it, it looks like there are screws for removing the plate. Maybe this is a new world championship...but when you win all of the other belts, it becomes the "grand" championship instead? I really don't know. Could be anything with this company. :lol:

    Ohhhhh, I get it; it's the "Goku" championship - you can reach new levels of power with each match you win 😂


  9. Hold on; the other image does show the title as "Grand" champion - why doea the clean image show it as "World"??

     

    The use of this has been poorly conceived; replacing thw KotM title with this is pointless.

     

    The Impact Wrestling Grand Champion should be either a unification of the WHC and the KotM championships, or a higher prize than all the others.

     

    I could see Lashley trashing all the other belts, stating that there is only one highest standard in Impact Wrestling and that is the Grand Championship (notice I'm not using "TNA" in this?).

     

    Contendership should also have the prerequisite of being a champion in Impact Wrestling previously.

     

    That's my alternate idea, anyway.


  10. Spoiler: TNA Introduces New Championship Title

     

     

     

    During Saturdays Impact Wrestling Tapings, Billy Corgan introduced a new Impact Grand Championship Title for the promotion.

     

    The Impact Grand Championship will be replacing the King of the Mountain Title. A tournament will be held to crown the first champion. Matches for the the title will have rounds, with judges declaring the winner if they go the distance.

    Corgan would go on to cut a promo announcing that many changes will be taking place with the company. He even hinted that they may even change the name of TNA to something else. The Impact Zone may also be getting a new look as well.

    That title is hideous.

    What is the point of this championship? Such a name suggests that it is nore prestigious than the TNA World Heavyweight Championship...shouldn't this be something that only current champions can compete for? That design though...someone needs to be fired for that.

    It's been said, but the white and red really make that belt pop. I'm glad it isn't a total clone of the men's belt.
    Wish they'd put a gold or silver textured plate behind the logo on WWE WHC. Give it a bit more prestige rather than looking like an after thought or lazy design.
    That's why I edited it in WWE 2k16. All that blank space.
    Yeah, I took a queue from you on that onebut instead of using the png frame/logo image, I cut out thea gold texture to match the shape of the void. This let me keep the in game relief and the nice shiny effect. I also patched of the red swish using on game relief and lettering to complete the look. But cred where it's due, man; you inspired me 😎
    Do you have it uploaded? Preferably on PS4?

    Not atm. I have reached my five upload limit (yeah, I don't do this much). My first tag is JLJM so have a look, and if you want to nominate a title to replace, I'll do so.

    Remember that 3rd dude in the Hart Dynasty?

    I don't ever remember that being a thing. The only person I can think of is Teddy Hart, but I thought he got fired while he was still in developmental

    I can't remember seeing Teddy Hart on tv. Can't remember Teddy Hart being signed to WWE even.

    I thought he was in developmental twice, but due to him being Teddy Hart, he was fired both times. That could be wrong though

    Okay, googled it, you're right and apparently the Hart Dynasty was a full-blown stable with Tyson Kidd, David Hart Smith (so that's his name), Natalya and Ted DiBiase (thought that was a joke). I can remember people here craving for them to get called up to the main roster.

     

    Why was Ted DiBiase ever part of the Hart Dynasty? Is there a Hart connection I'm missing?

    Remember when the ring announcer would let us know when Tyler Breeze would enter/leave the building on NXT?

    Like Bobby Heenan used to for Shawn back in the day.

    Ah, the good old days. Bobby Heenan was gold. Come to think of it, Gorilla Monsoon, Jesse Ventura, Randy Savage and Vince McMahon himself were all amazing commentators too.
