Both comcast and Verizon drop the network. Major blow to MLw and soccer fans.

I was seriously puzzled when I checked my recording it was an hour of "Comcast doesn't carry this station" ads.

re: Major League Wrestling Thread

I really dig MLW, but there are some annoyances in their booking that continue to frustrate me.

They have a monthly Top 10 Ranking which Tom Lawlor has been atop for three months in a row, yet he is only going to get an eventual title shot because he won Battle Riot. Names end up on the Top 10 List that haven't even appeared on TV before then and guys get #1 Contender matches regardless of their ranking.

There was no build at all to crowning Tag Team and Middleweight champions. I thought they had made mention of a tag tournament, but ended up being just a (albeit fun) three way match to determine champs. And I am not one to care about having a title for smaller guys and still have some of them fight for the Heavyweight belt, but all but maybe 3-4 members of the roster are smaller than heavyweight and the champs like Strickland and Low Ki are certainly not heavyweights. Just very odd that a Middleweight title is what they went with. And again, it is just randomly MJF vs Joey Ryan for it.

re: Major League Wrestling Thread

MLW has some of the best post-production in wrestling. Their VTR, commentary, graphics, etc are all top-notch, much better than WWE.

And then the show starts, and I lose a lot of interest. The lower card talent is pretty rough, and the venue it's shot in is equally shoddy. The main-event talent are great, but there's a HUGE gulf between them and the rest of the card.

I hope they do well, because they clearly understand modern combat sports better than basically anyone in the American wrestling scene right now. But man, I just can't deal with the venue and the lower card talent right now. I hope they get picked up somewhere and get a cash injection that lets them book a nicer venue and a few cool tag teams or something to fill out the card.

Completely agree. The top of the card especially feels cool with all the stable and the gang war aspect.
But then you get to the mid/low card and it just looks like out of a wrestling school with no skills and no personalities.
There's ACH and Rich Swann in tag team action next week tho so it should be better.

re: Major League Wrestling Thread

I am really into Lawlor and like his rivalry with Hager. Happy that Strickland no longer has the title and was surprised at Loki going over Hennigan clean. It's always a nice little hour of wrestling.

Not sure about Hart Foundation but I believe I read something about how they had the rights to use War Games because they ran the match in the first installment of MLW years ago after WCW went under.
