    Not gonna lie WK12 will be the best ppv of next year unless dominion kills it like it did this year.

    I still follow/watch raw/sd every week and even tho its getting wayyyyy better than the beginning 3/4 of this year, its not going to get to NJPWs level by next year

    Is Ishii not in a match yet? That'd be pretty disappointing if he just does some filler stuff, his matches are always one of the highlights of Wrestle Kingdom for me.

    I think WWE's always gonna be worse than it could be as long as it's this overexposed and has the Roman inevitably cloud hanging over it. I don't even really hate Roman either but man

    I love Ishiis matches but isn't he becoming more of a gatekeeper right now?


    Roman's matches are getting slowly better and better though, him and cesaro on monday was incredible. they need to get rid of brock lesnar tho

    (insert Yano shrug gif here)

    You're probably more up to date on NJPW than I am, I'm a pretty casual fan of it. I'd rather see Ishii vs Suzuki than Goto vs Suzuki at least though because I've never managed to get myself to care about Goto


    I think Roman has pretty much always been a good wrestler but it's underwhelming how all roads lead to Roman main eventing Wrestlemania vs a part-timer every year. I want to see Styles, Owens, Zayn, or hell even Braun close a Mania sometime.

    I stopped watching after G1 but have only slightly kept up on the WTL and whatever WK12 promos they're doing, but yeah goto is such a fizzle.

    I think they're on a 'record-breaking' thing right now so unfortunately we'll probably see roman main event again for the 4th time or whatever :|

    Wrestle Kingdom spoilers

    That main event finish was deflating, man. Jericho/Omega surpassed my expectations though

    Yeah I think everyone was super bummed especially since his momentum was so ridiculous going into it. I dunno how they're going to write him (naito) after this...

    I really enjoyed the fatal four way, cody/ibushi, and omega/jericho though.

    I cant wait for dominion even though sakura genesis is coming up before that.
    I'm going to try to get tickets for the NJPW USA show in march at the end of this month. :eek:

    gargano / almas moty candidate
    best non-gimmick nxt match I seen recently. As good, if not even better, than zayn/nakamura.

    Cole has to be hurting after that chair spot though...
    He seems to be taking far more extreme bumps in NXT than when he was in ROH

    i wish i bought wwe stock when i was looking at it early last year

    USA deal ends soon i think, if they got someone like fox that would double their pay

    Ronda is a huge draw, and the quality of everything is going up

    that rumble was great (also wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy better than last years disappointment)

    That men's rumble tonight was one of the three best rumbles ever. Nakamura winning by itself would've been cool but the whole match was structured really well and it was entertaining as hell from beginning to end. Easily the best rumble since I got back into wrestling in 2011.

    The women's rumble was cool too but a little more uneven. I think it went about as well as it could have went considering half of the entrants were either bad or rusty wrestlers. Surprised at no Nikki Cross/Peyton Royce though.

    Overall probably the most fun I've had watching a main roster WWE show since Wrestlemania 30 tbh

    I was super excited for the women's match but had really low expectations and they surpassed it. We kept trying to do the math on who'd actually be in minus the champs and figured that there werent even enough even if they had all the nxt women come up. The ring rust was super apparent, but since i had calculated that in my excitedness i also enjoyed it lol.

    Is this sarcasm? Bc everyone normally hates him lol
    Speaking of promos, I hope Ronda gets some practice on the mic before she does one.
