I'm trying to get more into ROH, Chikara, PWG, and the like. I've downloaded a ton of past events off XtremeWrestlingTorrents, which I have an invite for, by the way, so if anyone wants it, shoot me a PM.

Anyways, my question is, what are some of the must-see events or even matches? Not everything is available on XWT, but if it gets suggested and it's on there, I'd love to check it out.

I know that this isn't any of the promotions you mentioned, but TNA had a match at Unbreakable 2005 between Samoa Joe/AJ Styles/Christopher Daniels that was one of only a select few North American matches to receive ***** from Dave Meltzer in the past two decades. You can rent the event for 99 cents on Youtube here:

I'm on the second season of The Wire right now. I had no idea Vladimir Kozlov had a role on the show. I thought I recognized him, so I looked it up, and I was right.

I totally forgot that he was on the show, too.

Keep going, don't stop until you're done. Best TV show in the history of everything. Fourth season is jaw-droppingly truthful television. The fifth season struggles, but the series finale is worth the trudge.

PWG - Kevin Steen vs Super Dragon, "Guerrilla Warfare"
El Generico & Kevin Steen vs The Young Bucks (I forget the event name, but their whole feud in PWG was great)

I saw this guy's stuff in an issue of Juxtapoz..figured it was worth sharing. Think my favorite is the Christian/Tomko/Chris Masters one.

How nice of Cena to dress up for spending the holidays with the Bella's family. FFS.

Spoiler


Is Bryan dating one of the twins in real life? Is Cena going after the other one after his divorce? Figured he would try for Kelly Kelly.

Yeah, it's great. I missed it during its original run, but I'm really glad I finally started watching it.

I just read the spoilers from the Raw taping. :headache: Dolph is poopy.

Yeah, I think Bryan has been dating one for a while now, from what I've read. I'm not sure how long Cena has been involved with the other one.

Please tell me that Raw promo is not true.

Please tell me that Raw promo is not true.

Not so much for what happens (that makes sense), but the bathroom humour involved. Ugh.

Well, we'll all be out for NYE anyway, so no big deal. Still, this 5-year old poo humor does nothing. AND IT'S THE GODDAMNED FACE DOING IT. Where is that great Grantland article on how wrestling faces in WWF are fucking assholes?

That is why I'm ashamed to admit to still watching wrestling. For every Antonio Cesaro wrestling showcase, there are 1 to 15 potential $$$$er winning segments.

EDIT: Really? Can't say Gobbledy G00ker, censor filter?

Wow, I'm totally embarrassed that I overlooked that flagrant aspect, too. I'll have to turn my liberal card in. :lol:

In case you haven't read it earlier this year: http://www.grantland...heel-tendencies

A sample:

Sheamus's run as a babyface, however, has been even sketchier than Cena's. Despite his invincible presentation, Sheamus has inherited the mantle of Hogan-style in-ring corruption more than anyone else. Back in February, he attacked Daniel Bryan, his upcoming opponent at WrestleMania, after Bryan retained the World Heavyweight Championship in a grueling Elimination Chamber bout — the sort of move normally reserved for villains. He beat Bryan at 'Mania by blindsiding him with a kick before Bryan knew the match had started, which would have been despicably underhanded if Sheamus hadn't been the match's hero.9 Throughout their feud, Sheamus's humor took on a mean edge, as he seemed to relish belittling the diminutive Bryan as much as pounding him. His recent feud with Alberto Del Rio has seen him relentlessly jeer Del Rio's unathletic attaché, Ricardo Rodriguez — a particularly bizarre move for a guy who's the face of the WWE's "Be a Star" anti-bullying campaign. Last week, Sheamus stole Del Rio's car and trashed it just for giggles. These tactics aren't typically found in Chapter 1 of the white-knight playbook.

The first four letters spell out a lesser-used anti-Asian slur, so that's why not.

Fully aware of the slur, but caught me off-guard since the preceding thread was dedicated to said turkey without censoring.

EDIT: Just double checked said title and see the workaround was used. Retracted.

I would have accepted Snitsky coming back and punting the New Year's baby more than what actually is supposed to happen.

I might have chuckled at that more than another poop drop. Wasn't funny when DX did it before.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: A big problem I have with today's WWE is that they have forgotten how the face-heel mechanic works. The only main-event-level face they have is John Cena. As for everyone else, Santino is a true babyface. Rey Jr., too, but he's semi-active. Sheamus, Ryback, Orton, and Miz are not traditional faces, especially Miz. They're all tweeners. Seems like everyone wants to be a tweener and no one wants the responsibility/Cena-type hate that comes with being a babyface.

I don't know how you can say Cena is a true baby face when discussing the essential flip-flop of WWE Creative's face-heel writing mechanics. Cena is frequently doing the same kind of "heel" actions to other heels, but WWE expects us to cheer for him. John Cena is arguably the biggest face in the company, but he is in now way written like a traditional baby face consistently and hasn't been written that way for a very long time now. Cena isn't really doing the "cool heel" or "tweener" bullshit, but he's pretty much his own brand or type of face without always acting like a face.

I think that having the face be an asshole like they do is a problem because they don't allow the heel to be an even bigger one. As it stands right now the heels mostly get shit on for the entire duration of the feud and then lose.

Look at that endless Sheamus/Del Rio feud vs. the Sheamus/Big Show feud. That feud has been fantastic because they have been going back and forth for months. We believe that Big Show could conceivably win some matches there but Del Rio was just victimized for months on end with no retaliation.

Hmm. Lemme think about this a bit more.

What heel behavior has he shown? To the best of my memory of recent WWE, he's a sterile, 1980s Hogan babyface. Thinking about the TLC PPV and what I can recall of recent RAW shows, which, to be honest, isn't much of anything. Hmm. I stand by my assessment unless someone shows otherwise. He gets beat up by heels, then Hulks-up, makes a comeback, and wins. That's pretty much the standard Hulkamania model.

Cena's phrase should be "Hustle. Loyalty." How does waving a hand in front of your face and saying "You can't see me" a sign of respect?

IMO, Cena's bad singing is a heel move. At least Hogan didn't do that in the 80's - unless you were in Japan:
