Re: National Wrestling Alliance Thread - Corgan's Regime
Okay what the fuck, I've gotten busy with work over the last 2 years or so, and don't really follow wrestling regularly anymore. Just watch highlights on YouTube. In fact, it's been over 2 years since I watched a full show- Raw, SD, NXT, any PPV or even something from NJPW.
Recently, the buzz around AEW Dynamite made me check it out, and it was pretty good.
But NWA POWERRR, holy fuck! This got my full attention. What an incredible show. Just one hour of pure fun, which is exactly what I needed. Commentary was great, loved the old school studio setup, the fans were loud, the promos were great, the champions are presented as such a big deal, it's refreshing. And the matches too- well done squashes, a somewhat competitive match of Eli Drake and that main event. Look, we're not getting any MOTYCs anytime soon, but it doesn't matter. Wrestling should be about two competitors fighting to win, not making it obvious that they are doing it for the star ratings. They stuck to basic moves, but it looked good, a simple body slam or elbow drop looked more legit than many signature moves we see in other promotions.
This was by far my fav wrestling show in a long time, and I didn't even know anyone beforehand other than Aldis, Drake, James Storm, Cornette and Bram/Thom Latimer. But I'm hyped.
