Couldn't they find something better for Rush than Swann?

Re: Major League Wrestling Thread

Why can't they let Low Ki win cleanly? Having good names is good but you need to let them have good matches if you want to grow



Trying to have fun with some wrestling edits here !

Re: Major League Wrestling Thread

100% that it is going to end in some fuckery finish. I wonder how crowd will react.

Re: Major League Wrestling Thread

Does anyone know why the Ladder Match ended up being so different than what was advertised? I know the story behind initial entrants like Jason Cade & Marko Stunt...but before the live show it was being marketed as Desmond Xavier, Andrew Everett, Kotto Brazil & El Hijo de LA Park. I get Teddy Hart was supposed to be a wild card entrant, but there was zero mention of why Gringo Loco was suddenly in there.

Having the two championships differentiated by weight class is strange to me. I have zero issue with smaller guys challenging for heavyweight titles, but when 90% of the roster is a lightweight it seems odd to then introduce a Middleweight belt. It clearly is intended to be more midcard, but the division makes little sense. And both Teddy Hart and Gringo Loco look to be larger than middleweights perhaps?

I love MLW - quickly has become one of my favorite promotions - but there are still a lot of head scratchers when it comes to the booking. The in-ring product is really good though, and the talent roster is one of the best going.

Re: Major League Wrestling Thread

Anyone who doesn't expect a non-clean finish with Park vs Rush must not be aware of the ramifications among Lucha. That said, I don't care what goes down. I just want another violent brawl between the two. Which I'm 99% confident will be the result.

You suck the blood of the afflicted.
Those lacking imagination take refuge in reality.

Sad to tell you, man but...they didn't tape it...it was a live event show only from the looks of it.

Re: Major League Wrestling Thread

The less Sami matches that are available to watch, the closer we'll get to saving wrestling

That Conan Low ki match was interesting. It wasnt the wrestling exactly but the plot that was intertwined. Conan ended up defenceless in the ring. Through out the match im thinking where is his back up. He needs a hand. At the end of the match we see a bloody conan. Filthy tom comes to aid him which progresses his story with low ki. But also we find Pentagon lying backstage and taken out. Schiavone leads us out with his tune in next week and the camera pans away.

I was watching this with a friend who has been out of watching wrestling for a while and he enjoyed the show. I think how the show is 45 minutes long and spends 5-10 minutes with promos and repeating past plotline points helps new people understand what is going on.

Having wrestlers come on every 2 to 3 weeks while the belts are talked about every week keeps the wrestlers fresh and gives time for a couple of plotlines in a 45 minute show.

I have raised this issue a few weeks ago. And when you take a look at the heavier guys they consist of ace romero and Hughes who are more for fast matches and short fill ins. One guy though who is a heavy weight and still entertaining is Davey Boy Smith Jr. Since Tedy Hart has the middle weight title they could maybe look to get Davey Boy involved in thw Heavyweight mix and build up the heart foundation even more.

MLW also lost PCO who was a heavyweight but wasnt booked in the title picture. The fans seemed to love him.
