If you enjoy three guys who look like they stayed home for senior prom listening to Nirvana giving themselves papercuts and swallowing thumbtacks and literally trying to kill themselves because they can't actually work. Then yeah, I do.

Cool and if you like a greasy haired hot topic wannabe then I question your IQ . Come back when jay white has a feud as good as havoc's vs ospreay. The fact people say havoc can't work is laughable. His feud with ospreay was the top feud in Progress as it was growing and helped establish it but jimmy havoc can't work <img src="http://i.imgur.com/m2XjBg7.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Heston" class="inlineimg" /> <img src="http://i.imgur.com/m2XjBg7.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Heston" class="inlineimg" />



Spoiler for Don't be sad it is over, be happy it happened:

Well then, let's put things in perspective here. Based on the fact that you're posting in a wrestling forum and have stated your dislikes on said matter, one can only assume there's a high likelihood that you enjoy watching oiled up muscleheads stomping around in their underwear, yelling at each other and play-fighting, which isn't exactly what I'd call a ringing endorsement of your own discerning tastes.

You're just another wrestling fan. The fact that you have hard lines between what you enjoy and what you think others shouldn't doesn't make you any more or less of one, only a close-minded one. Get off your soapbox and accept the idea that everyone else's preferences aren't going to match yours. What people do and don't like doesn't make them any more or less right, nor does it say anything about their IQ or 'basic abilities', whatever the hell that's supposed to be.

The hardcore match from All Out wasn't really my cup of tea, but you can't say the match sucked if it had the crowd going crazy the entire duration.

To act like there aren't shades of grey between that horseshit they did and Bill Watts WCW no top rope rule is just laughable. I already said I liked the ladder match, I mean that had its fair amount of choreographed nonsense, but I respect the athleticism and timing the shit they did took. But like I said, AEW could put snuff porn on its PPVs and some of you would defend it, so I mean, I know the battle Im fighting here.

Not that this has anything to do with the discussion - as my point was console vs free to play mobile



Ps> i guess weíll continue this in the ratings thread?
1. They definitely have a nice fanbase that's unquestionable. I definitely think they have enough of a loyal fan base and will convert enough folk to sustain themselves come TV (as long as TNT doesn't randomly lose interest in wrestling again). It's just PPV I don't think will shoot up come TV, as I don't envision casuals being gung ho to pay that price. Then as I said I think fans that have been paying will get stingier with time.

2. But before they even got to that point the PS4 crushed the Xbox One off of pricing. The price point because of the Kinect (as well as that terrible press conference) was a major turn off. The fact that PS4 ended up having more exclusives was even more reasoning later kn.

Wasn't just the price point, the promotion of the Xbox One was a train wreck from the get go. The used games thing was the big thing, and yes, the ultimately went back on that, but the damage was done. $400 Vs. $500 was an element of it too, don't get me wrong, but it wasn't the only thing. MS butchered the promotion of the Xbox One to an obscene level.

Listen mate, I did not like the 3-way / its not my bag

But acting all superior about disliking something will always get you rightfully some heat.

AEW is quite vocal about giving a buffet of styles - so, be prepared to keep on finding stuff you donít like in-between the stuff you do.

Must be a USA thing. In EU where I was at the time and ZA where I am now, the prices were pretty similar, with ps4 actually being a little more expensive

I remember the conversation in my head being something like ‘100 bucks more, but I can finally play Last of Us’ - or something to that effect
