WrestleMania Weekend: G1 Supercard (6/4/19) Review

It’s time for the big one! New Japan is in the Garden. And, well, I guess Ring Of Honor is there too. The G1 Supercard should be the show of the weekend, and if ROH weren’t there, I’d be putting money on that being the case. Sadly, I don’t trust those cunts, so we’ll have to wait and see. Still, Ibushi vs Naito could fart into a kazoo for thirty minutes, and I’d stand up and clap, so I’m going to have a good time.

Ring Of Honor has walked a windy path in the last seventeen years. From the disgusting segment that kicked it all off through Danielson vs McGuinness to The Elite and now, em, well, to be honest, I’m not sure what they are at the moment, but that’s because they’re in the middle of establishing their new identity. Would their anniversary be a step forward? Time to find out.

NJPW Honor Rising (22/2/19) Review

Honor Rising is a weird tour. Much like Fantastica Mania, people treat it like a bit of a joke. Yet, much like Fantastica Mania, I nearly always enjoy it. You get some fun combinations as a couple of matches always deliver. Christ, last year Hirooki Goto had a good showing with Beer City Bruiser, where else are you going to see that? I think people need to stop overthinking it, and just enjoy it.

I’ve said this before, but ROH is in a weird ass place at the moment. Business-wise, they are at their peak. Drawing crowds that they couldn’t have dreamed of previously. In the ring, though? You could argue it’s at a low. While they have a lot of talent, a lot of it feels directionless as they bounce from feud to feud with no rhyme or reason. Will Death Before Dishonour be the same? Most definitely.

All In Review

It’s here. What started as a throwaway comment from Dave Meltzer (dick) on Twitter, somehow ended up being one of the biggest indie shows of all time. 10,000 people, all making their way to Chicago because they trust Cody Rhodes and The Young Bucks. They’ve proven they can sell the tickets, create the WrestleMania atmosphere and put a star-studded card together. The only question left was whether they could put on a show worthy of the hype. I guess we should find out.

Do you know what’s lovely? Live wrestling. ROH appear to have made Edinburgh a regular stop for them and while I can’t pretend I think their roster is that great at the moment, as long as they bring over NJPW guys I’ll be there. They were in Edinburgh on the 24th of May to open their Honor United tour and I went along to check it out.
