Anyone see any of the HOF? Wondering if it was worth watching and how long it was? Figured I'd skip to what I wanted to watch especially Bulldog. Interested in Liger's speech but it sounds like it was more of a short video message then anything

Watched night one of WM and, while I liked it, it seemed underwhelming.  

1. Lashley winning was probably right for business as he needed that big win since he beat a lame duck champ in the Miz (and I'm a Miz fan).

2. Tag team turmoil was a miss. I would have liked them to maybe have pulled the trigger on a Riott Squad win to establish them a bit.

3. New Day vs AJ ans Omos was.....odd. ND played the heels and, while the match was fine, I'm not used to that.

4. Hated Braun and Shane. Might have been the dumbest buildup to a match ever and this is coming from a company who had a dude screw a corpse to try to get a match over.

5. Miz vs Bunny. I did not hate the match at all Bunny did great and Miz and Morrison carried him as well as anyone else could have.

6. Bianca winning wasn't a surprise,  but I'm just not feeling it with her. She checks all the boxes for sure, and the match was really good, but.... I dunno.

While we can bag on the E for their weird matches, apparently New Japan has said HOLD MY BEER!!

NJPW announced fans get to decide the upcoming stipulation for the KOPW 2021 Provisional Championship Match between Toru Yano and EVIL. The two are set to meet on night one of Wrestling Satsuma no Kuni on April 28 in either a Creation of Darkness Blindfold Match or a Darkness Match.

The first match’s rules are the following, as per NJPW: “Distinct from a ‘traditional’ blindfold match, this bout will start with four blindfold hoods on each of the four ring posts around the ring. A competitor is only able to defeat their opponent if they can blindfold them first. Should a hood be secured on an opponent, usual rules apply to pinfalls, submissions, knock outs and count-outs.”

The Darkness Match rules are: “The first three minutes of the match will see the lights turned on and off at thirty second intervals. From the three minute mark onward, there will be thirty seconds of darkness every three minutes until a decision is rendered.”

Difference is NJPW are actually thought provoking. WWE tries to recycle old ideas as new and they never come off like they should nor do they make sense in the circumstances. The matches NJPW did for this makes sense given it's Yano

A still a bigger star than anybody in that company today. Which is an indictment of the booking process, not the talent.

He got over on a incredible cheap pop gimmick. Props to WWE and him at the time for taking advantage of it though. It was more luck then anything that got him as famous as he did

Not Disney, but with how much content Peacock removed, there is no way they will appreciate the language.

Yet USA wants them to be more attitude era like :rolleyes:

Am I the only one who thought it was Logan Paul the NFL player?

I'm soooooo old.

Hey right there with you. I have no idea who that guy is. Never heard of Bad Bunny until a couple of months ago either.

Zayn and KO broke out moves they don't normally get to use in WWE. Fast paced - good midcard Mania match. KO adding a stunner for Logan Paul really gave the people what they wanted. 

I liked it. It was at least interesting 

I think it is great WWE is putting on a match now to allow people to pee and get a beer.

It is like HBK and Jason Mewes had a love child 

is it my imagination or have there been a ton of botches in this one? 

It seems to me they were laying it in pretty good. Better a botch then breaking someones neck. Some of those looked like they weren't going to turn out well.

I agree completely. You could tell they just were not on the same page several times .

It's hilarious that you still think this, but keep repeating this false narrative if you makes you feel better. :lol:
