I want Davey to stop with some of the stupid DK/Benoit bullshit. Having their silent kiler personalities was an asset, not a detriment.

One of my all-time favorite Benoit moments (pretty chilling now) is his facial expression as HHH comes into the ring for their match at No Mercy 2000.

I watched Richards/Callihan (which was ok)
At one point in the match Callihan hit Richards with a sliding forearm strike to the head, Callihan covered em but Richards just pushed him off and quickly got back to his feet.

He's my 2nd favorite on the indys, but the no-sell was overkill.
I can see why people have started to dislike em (even more).

I understand the hate for Davey but fuck -- he's not Chris Benoit. He's not trying to be Chris Benoit. So when he does actions or mannerisms that deviate from Chris Benoit, remember that he's fucking Davey Richards. His style and body type may be similar but he clearly has many differences from Benoit so people should stop acting like he should be a Benoit clone. You guys will find something to complain about no matter what.

If he's acting too much like Benoit, then he's a clone. If he deviates from Benoit's personality, then he's not nearly as good. It's annoying to read the constant goddamn negativity but I guess that's what you get with the IWC.

ANYWAY. I rewatched my top 5 matches and agreed with my first four ratings but felt a little differently about Generico/Waltman. Without the emotion of seeing it for the first time, it's not nearly as good of a bout but it's still pretty great. ****.

So replacing it will definitely be Generico vs. Castagnoli.

Also, (if you don't care about MMA, stop reading) I was there at UFC 129 last night and it was a hell of a show. The excitement of 55,000 fans is tough to beat. I will say that even after the night of amazing fights that I believe I will enjoy RoH's show in Toronto a little more. MMA is great. It's exciting, the fighters usually give their all and I respect the action in the octagon. But damn, with it being a shoot, the night felt uneven.

Over 55,000 people (much like Rock/Hogan that happened in the same building) lost their minds during round five of Aldo/Hominick. For those that don't know, it was like the perfect wrestling story. Babyface challenger who is a MASSIVE underdog that no one gave a chance is fighting the #3 pound for pound fighter in ALL of MMA for the title in his home country. In round one, Hominick put up a fight but he would repeatedly get taken down and nearly knocked out. This would happen for three straight rounds as the crowd kept willing for Hominick to stay alive, much less win the fight. And then something special happened in round four.

If you haven't google'd it yet, google Hominick UFC 129 and there will sure to be a picture of his head after some brutal punches. I can't do justice to the visual but he is a fucking warrior. Round four drummed up all the sympathy from the crowd for the spectacular final round. Because with each round, you could see the invincible champion losing steam which lead to my fellow Canadian taking him down with three minutes left. Those next three minutes were at Rock/Hogan levels of heat as Aldo failed to defend Hominick's punches as the countdown clock reached zero.

The judges ended up giving the fight to Aldo (after BARELY surviving the fifth round slaughter) but Hominick came out of the fight looking like a star. Think Tyler Black vs. Nigel McGuinness x 10,000. I was enthralled by the unpredictability of it all but part of me felt empty after realizing how it could of turned out in the pro wrestling world. In the world of pro wrestling, unbelievable come backs happen. In an ideal world of wresting, the card doesn't peak with the second last match and have a main-event that puts the crowd to sleep (sorry GSP).

But wrestling isn't at it's peak right now. Despite having these advantages over MMA, they haven't been able to create mainstream stars that resonate with the audience. I could go on and on for pages of how the sport could improve, but that's another day.

Check out Hominick/Aldo (even if you're not an MMA fan).
Watch the entrances as well. Fucking epic.

That main event sucked balls. Way too much caution displayed by GSP and Shields. Couture vs. Machida was easy fight of the night.

Aldo vs. Hominick was a classic and the second best fighter of the year to Edgar vs. Maynard 2, which was basically Rocky vs. Apollo Creed.

I am honestly more pumped for ROH in Toronto than I was for UFC 129.

Lol.
Couture/Machida?

Must be trolling. Either that or you like to be in the 0.1% that challenges the popular (and right) view.

And yeah -- I have Hominick vs. Aldo as the 2nd best fight of the year as well.

not a big MMA fan at all, but I agree with superdupersonic. I was bored to death with the first 2 & 3/4 rounds of the Aldo fight. Hell the fans were even boing...the last 2 rounds were awesome though.
