​Awesome, thanks!​

  1. I wonder how match an indy like PWA would have to pay Styles for a match??

  2. also your match may get more hits if you didnt have Sparky v AJ Smiles. It should be Marky v AJ Styles. just saying you'd have more than 15 hits and more ppl seeing your work.

  3. def more than that lol.

  4. That's probably pretty close give or take 48 bucks. This is a hard business. It isn't all glamour and pyro. Sometimes you wrestle a never was in front of 126 people for $280. It's the nature of the beast. His opponent probably got $75.

    ReplyDelete
  5. Ah ok, it's Marky. Now I get it. Cause the post didn't say who Styles was facing, and neither did the Youtube title. ARE WE SUPPOSED TO BE PSYCHIC HERE DARN IT??


    Ok, meltdown over. That was pretty cool, *thumbs up*

  6. randy the ram style huh. but this is in canada. 280 wouldnt cover his plane ticket.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Very good match ***1/2. Top rope styles clash was tight!

    ReplyDelete
  8. haha, but you this aj smiles vs sparky match was good. i gave it 3 and a half stars. Sparky looks like he can afford to add a few lbs though.

  9. Why are you repeating yourself? Are you his manager?

    Well your no fun. I don't want to play with you.

  11. He needs to get advice from Steen then, LULZFAT

    ReplyDelete
  12. its my tourettes brah.

    ReplyDelete
  13. You were close though.

    ReplyDelete
  14. What ever happened to that one dude from pwa, used to be Tyson kidds tag partner or something. Scotsmans friend, wore a Scott Keith shirt to one of his matches

    Oh THAT'S right. Lawler recruited a wannabe republican senator. My bad...my bad.

    ReplyDelete
  16. What was his name again? Smarky Smark or something like that?

    ReplyDelete
  17. If he was stiff and dangerous then that explains it. I thought his work looked good for being midcard if nothing else. Better than some of the guys that were getting pushed.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I saw Savio wrestle a few times at local events in recent years, and he's still nimble for a 50-year-old. He wrestled this local guy named Patch (named because he looks like a degenerated Jacques Rougeau in an eye patch, seriously), and Vega hit this gory bladejob that caked his entire face, and was water-falling over the back of his head. Vega would win by DQ when Little Guido ran interference. Ahhh, independent wrestling.....

    ReplyDelete
  19. Boy, they sure weren't going for atmosphere on these 1995 RAW's. I've lived in Ohio my entire life and I had to go to Wikipedia to find out where Struthers is (spoiler: it's a Youngstown suburb). Nothing against the town, but not exactly where you want to have your flagship program taped. Seriously, they must have been in a high school or something.

    ReplyDelete
  20. No way bro. If other douche don't like it, your opinion is mute and not worthy

    ReplyDelete
  21. No one likes these reviews apparently. What you like doesn't matter. Only those who oppose this count.

    ReplyDelete
  22. You're the reason I'm pro comment revoking privileges.

    ReplyDelete
  23. HOROWITZ WINS! HOROWITZ WINS!.... whoops, that's still a few months away.

    ReplyDelete
  24. He wanted to build to a rematch. Why job the guy responsible for the publicity that house show got in the first match instead of screwjob finish and then Diesel goes over the second time around and milk the money from the locals?

    ReplyDelete
  25. His reviews are the only way I can keep up with NJPW. He needs to really tighten them up, but I'm good with this.

    If the original emailer is here....really awesome finish, nice work eating the styles clash, looked like a heavy landing. I don't really like the way you transition into head locks, looks stilted, but good althleticism and smoothness for the most part. ***

    ReplyDelete
  27. I'll have to check out the main event. Was this an Ippv

    ReplyDelete
  28. No people, this guy is not an alt account of mine.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Sorry, NoCash, didn't see your almost identical post below before I posted this. But, you know, great minds...
    O-H!....

    ReplyDelete
  30. And Kwang was the genius gimmick??!!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Styles never has bad matches. This one no exception

    ReplyDelete
  32. TV I think, they do these b- show once in while.

    Ug have to go to work and miss most of the first football Sunday of the year. Fortunately the Giants are playing tomorrow so I feel alright I'm gonna take on the world!

    It's the Blog Of Doom, don't over-react to the people who don't like it or you'll implode.

    Not that imploding on this site isn't entertaining, but come on.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Vince is just super annoying in this period. He's trying way too hard to put this stuff over.

    ReplyDelete
  36. MaffewOfBotchamaniaSeptember 7, 2014 at 9:54 AM

    AJ Smiles.

    ReplyDelete
  37. MaffewOfBotchamaniaSeptember 7, 2014 at 9:55 AM

    KARATE FIGHHTEEERSSSS!!!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Is that actually true or is that an urban myth? I've heard more than one person say that a.) Vince pushed for the gimmick precisely because he'd seen POTC, and b.) Wednesday night for Vince was (is?) traditionally Movie Night with Linda.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Good lord though that feud dragged in forever. I think it ended late last year actually...

    ReplyDelete
  40. When Sparky came out, I assumed it was going to be a guy dressed as Spanky vs. a guy dressed as AJ Styles.

    ReplyDelete
  41. This is the stupidest shirt since the Stephanie McMahon one (which took the throne from the Heyman Guy shirt).

    ReplyDelete
  42. And Goldberg didn't have any tears in his eyes from working with Bret. And Goldberg never came to Bret's hotel room.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Get ready to smile.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I was just a kid and even I noticed how weird it was and how the Bulldog/Owen match seemed so out of place from the rest of the show.

    ReplyDelete
  45. No man. I can't complete this. Not after yesterday. Too soon.

    i...o. (sniff)

    ReplyDelete
  46. Man - the timekeeper thing is awful

    ReplyDelete
  47. I'd bet AJ got 90% of the payout for all wrestlers on that show.


    not undeservedly either.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Yeah, especially since probably 90% of the crowd was there to see Styles.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Still more than TNA probably paid him.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Main event sounds fun, I'll check it out.

    ReplyDelete
  51. So basically watch this show for Sunny and that's it?

    ReplyDelete
  52. You didn't watch the product back then did you?

    Oh cool, glad it's just not a PPV exclusive.

    Little much, you say that in the forum, Cult will band you.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Saw the ME match, ***1/2. It's clear they wanna build HASHI as a underdog against Yujiro, so far the crowd seems to accept the encounter.

    ReplyDelete
  57. That's Barry Horriblewitz, thank you very much.

    ReplyDelete
  58. At least we didn't had to see his baby face. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  59. Thanks for all the positive feed back everyone! The reason the uploader didn't call it Marky vs AJ Styles is because he's still selling copies of the DVDs at shows and just wanted to give me a hidden link for me to pass out to my friends.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Also one of the best guys I've ever met. Sat down with me for an hour after the match. I learned more in that 1 hour then I did in the last 10 years in the business.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Thanks man, AJ was a little worried about the Styles Clash cause it was right after someone in Scotland took it wrong and broke their neck. I just laughed and asked if we could do it off the middle rope :)

    ReplyDelete
  62. Yeah that's me. Formerly Marky Mark now just Marky.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I'm a legit 175! :) But I know, I've been hitting the gym hard and trying to eat... well just more in general lol I did put on 20 pounds last year so I'm getting there! I think it was my improvements in look that got me this match to be honest.

    ReplyDelete
  64. cool man. you were just over as AJ (for my money best wrestler in the world atm). Good match too.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Did anyone? There were like 8 people in the crowd, the main was a PPV dark match from a while ago......dear lord, early 90s wrestling stunk.

    ReplyDelete
  66. I couldn't possibly know what you are referring to here. This thing is spotless, I swear.

    ReplyDelete
  67. That was a great angle but I hated how they suddenly made Barry turn into Jamison for no reason.

    ReplyDelete
  68. TV special. Like a Survivor Series Showdown type. Next show is "Blue Justice V"

    ReplyDelete
  69. What a crap gimmick. Blatant Muta ripoff. Didn't he even spit mist a few times?

    ReplyDelete
  70. He was in great shape until the quad tear. I'm not an expert on roids, but I have heard you really get bloated once you stop working out.

    ReplyDelete
  71. I was just joking, I was meaning Sunny was the ONLY reason to watch during that time period.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Oh wow. That had to be like being in the ring with a superstar! And it was a really good match! This is so cool!

    ReplyDelete
  73. Wierd parrel universe is Steve McMichael on Raw. Since I didn't watch Raw in 1995 and only knew Mongo from WCW.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Mongo on Raw is weird. He was drunk, and seemingly tried to put his arm around Vince when he took his seat.

    ReplyDelete
  75. I'm pretty sure Meltz broke it down on the show once. AJ was either $1500 or $2000 per show, I think the former.. Dave sat there and did the math on 3 shows per weekend for a full year, minus traveling costs, against his guaranteed TNA contract, merch included, etc, etc, etc.


    He's the Meltz, the shows are worth scaling the paywall..

    ReplyDelete
  76. It was obvious that Captain's team was going to get the win cause a rookie was on the other team. I've never seen a rookie beat anyone other then another rookie ever. Also captain's finisher is called the Caribbean Death Grip.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Not at all. Like I said. I dgaf if you masturbate to muracos posts or slit your wrists to them. What i care about is people that enjoy things getting to enjoy them and the people that don't simply not click on them. How hard is that for you tools to understand?

    ReplyDelete
  78. You seem to very much give a fuck. If you don't like what I'm saying about Muraco, why are you reading the comments section.


    How hard is it for you to understand?

    ReplyDelete
  79. I care about the thought process and pomposity behind wanting something you don't like to be removed vs. Something more than one person enjoys.

    ReplyDelete
  80. You also called someone a troll fag. You're a one man Algonquin roundtable

    ReplyDelete
  81. Troll fags are trolls. You included

    ReplyDelete
  82. Other posters brought up the issue of there being too many posts and the main site getting clogged.


    Scott even joined in and addressed the issue of quality control.


    So it's natural we bring up limiting who can write for the site. Dock Muraco has at times been admittedly trolling in his columns and the Benoit thing was ridiculous. So it's only natural I express my opinion that I don't think he should write anymore.


    Just because you want to write for the site doesn't mean you should write for the site.


    Meekin is another one who should have his posting privileges revoked.

    ReplyDelete
  83. Dude, you don't gain profits or run the site. You are a reader for the site that Scott runs. Obviously, he knows better than you. If he sees fit to have Charles fucking Manson write for the site about bathing in children's blood then that's what you will either read or not click. He has run this site and gained readers based on his thought of what will make a good site. If you want to start a site you can have whoever you want write for it.

    ReplyDelete
  84. To think you know better than Scott is pompous at best.

    ReplyDelete
  85. I never said that.

    ReplyDelete
  86. Your continued insistence on missing the point is a stunning achievement.


    Troll fag?

    ReplyDelete
  87. Scott decides who has privileges. You think your idea of what is better holds more weight.

    ReplyDelete
  88. Nobody should be allowed to express their opinion since we have no say.


    Got it.


    Scott made a post about quality control so it's only natural people would chime in and offer thoughts.


    As you said, Scott could have Charles Manson writing a column (I'd probably read it!) but he wouldn't want to alienate his readers and drive them away from the site.

    ReplyDelete
  89. The point is you don't like something therefore you think it shouldn't be viewed by anyone. Claiming there's any other point is disingenuous and you know it.

    ReplyDelete
  90. Opinion is one thing. Attempting to get something removed is another.

    ReplyDelete
  91. Not at all. I have laid out why Dock Muraco should not be allowed to post. I think the some of Meekin. Others have chimed in and said the same thing.


    I want the Saints defensive coordinator fired right now. Oh no, complaining about something I can't do anything about!

    ReplyDelete
  92. I am just spouting my opinion. If Scott doesn't remove Dock Muraco, that's his call. If he doesn't remove Meekin, that's his call and he's making a huge mistake.

    ReplyDelete
  93. Read that first fucking sentence. It's entitlement is unreal.

    ReplyDelete
  94. Why are you so filled with anger?


    If Scott is going to have other people write for the site, there should be some sort of quality control, because it could start to turn people off the site.


    People who write just to troll, like Dock Muraco admittedly does, should not be given this forum to do it in.

    ReplyDelete
  95. Scott's method of quality control should not be up to you. Your concern of people turning off the site, also not up to you. There have been tens of comments praising this review, so saying he writes just to troll is wrong and a lie.

    ReplyDelete
  96. Ah, you're right! The old Hideo Saito finisher...

    ReplyDelete
  97. He admitted he was trolling in one of his prior reviews.

    ReplyDelete
  98. Scott is the one who posted about it. We have a comments section. I commented. It's a magical world we live in.

    ReplyDelete
  99. Well then if that's the case, many people enjoy his form of trolling (aka writing legit puro reviews) so why do you think your lonely opinion supersedes many other people's enjoyment.

    ReplyDelete
  100. Then stop clicking the fucking muraco post and enjoy the blog!

    ReplyDelete
  101. If Scott is gonna post about quality control and ways to limit posts, I'm going to contribute my opinion.


    If he wants to keep Muraco and his trolling, so be it.


    Hooray for rote PBP instead of actual analysis and criticism.

    ReplyDelete
  102. I did think Lawler did wrestle Taker sometime in 1995-96 during his "let us squash Lawler" phase. I think King even got a title shot against Shawn, but its not like Lawler was ever booked as a legit credible legend or anything.

    ReplyDelete
  103. It started when he blew out his knee around Fall 98, when he came back he was bigger, then the quad, he gained a letter in his name, HHHH.

    ReplyDelete
  104. The best sign at the Des Moines Raw I attended on monday, "I'm a $9.99 guy".

    ReplyDelete
  105. You do realize you lumped in 1990-1992 WCW by saying that right?

    ReplyDelete
  106. Bash 91.


    Standing by my statement.

    ReplyDelete
  107. SB91, WR91, Havoc91. I stand by mine
