Pretty weird theme and, especially, title, right?

SWERVE.

But since it happens all the time, the real swerve is when someone wins in their hometown.

He repeated similar sentiments on WOR as well and mentioned his track record hurting people and causing concussions, mentioned he kicked Daniel Bryan in the head which caused a concussion ending his career etc.

Overblown shit

There's no way Alvarez could be more obnoxious, even if he tried.

I know. Accidents happen even in somewhat simple situations. Jeff even said at the end of the match not to worry about it. I'm not even sure it was Sheamus who got Matt to bleed, or what spot caused it to happen.

Sheamus does work stiff, but how angry he got seemed uncalled for to be honest.

Exact opposite...

He was saying you don't need to be an indie darling to be successful.

He was shitting on fans who think the only way to be worthwhile is to pay your dues in the indies for years and years

EVOLVE - Arguably the top US indy currently. Close relationship with WWE, a lot of their cruiserweight crop have come through. New On Demand service run by FloSports, gives you access to the WWN family of events, with a large on demand library dating back to 2003 and live streamed events from EVOLVE, FIP, ACW, and all women promotion SHINE.
http://www.floslam.tv/events - $20/month or $150/year

PWG - Arguably the top US indy currently. Less of a traditional promotion, PWG is a hangout for wrestlers across the indies to go all out and have fun. Shows can be exhausting, and the delay from show to release is maddening. Worth it.
http://www.prowrestlingguerrilla.com/merch/ - $15/DVD $20/Blu-Ray On Demand/Never

PROGRESS - The top of the bustling UK indy scene (I'm biased.) More of a storyline focus than a lot of indies, with great matches and a hot crowd. You're missing out. Get on it.
https://demandprogress.pivotshare.com/ - $7.49/month

Rev Pro - Pairs the top level British talent with the top indy stars from the US, and through a partnership with New Japan, the top Japanese stars.
https://rpwondemand.pivotshare.com/ - $8.49/month

ROH - Ring of Honor was historically the #2 or 3 promotion in the US, but the lustre has gone as of late. Bull Dempsey main eventing in 2016 is all you need to know. There are a lot of talented guys there however, as well as a New Japan partnership. Their back catalog still holds up.
Past Events @ http://rohwrestling.com/membership - $7.99/month Weekly TV every Thursday @ http://rohwrestling.com/tv/current/Free Current PPV's $15-35/show

Lucha Underground - A TV show about a Wrestling show. Great matches with Lucha stars, combined with TV style drama and stories.
El Rey Network, SlingTV or US iTunes - $40/26 episode season

Stardom - The top Joshi all women's promotion in Japan currently. On Demand streaming service with English subtitled content.
http://www.stardom-world.com/ - 750/month

Highspots Wrestling Network - back catalog PWG, current AAW and wXw On Demand, along side shoots, some CZW, a fucking ocean of content.
https://www.highspotswrestlingnetwork.com/ - $9.99/month

DDT - Batshit insane home of patron saint of Flipvember, and wonderful human, Kota Ibushi. On Demand service launching in January, includes new shows from DDT, BASARA, Tokyo Joshi Pro and Ganbare Pro-Wrestling, as well as DDT special events (outdoor shows) and archives. You all need Kota Ibushi wrestling Sami Zayn in a campsite in your lives.
http://ddtuniverse.com/ - 900/month

SHIMMER - Top US women's promotion. Has hosted the likes of Beth Phoenix, Becky Lynch, Paige, Asuka, Natalya, Mickie James, Ember Moon, Blue Pants, Nikki Cross and more. No On Demand, which is frustrating, as is their release schedule. They're currently about a year and a half behind.
https://shimmerwrestling.blogspot.co.uk/p/dvds.html - $15/DVD

Dragon Gate - Japanese promotion focused around speed and factions. The process for watching their live events is complicated, and documented below.
http://www.f4wonline.com/japan/how-w...d-ippvs-204481 - 1500-2700/event

AAA - Lucha promotion, many of it's stars are featured in Lucha Underground.
Clips and shows posted to https://www.youtube.com/user/luchalibreaaatv

CMLL - World's oldest promotion, lucha libre.
"http://www.clarosports.com/en-vivo02 I think on fridays, and streams on youtube too for the Monday and Tuesday shows: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC3l..._j4PGXWLNTt4iQ"

ICW - Staunchly adult focused wrestling from Scotland. The attitude era worship is evident, and may not be for everyone. That said, a lot of great UK talent, and weekly TV show content as well as live events. They're about to run the same venue WWE is taping TV in, and for an indy, that merits attention.
https://icwondemand.pivotshare.com/ - $6.99/month

Others: AAW, AIW, CHIKARA, Fight Club Pro, ATTACK!, WCPW, CZW, WXW, AJPW, NOAH, Freelance, IPW:UK, Pro Wrestling EVE, OTT, SMASH

Good post boots. I need to get back into progress.

For the OT you can change the second CMLL link to https://www.youtube.com/user/VideosO...sCMLL/featured (you need to use "copy link location" to grab large urls)

The one there at the moment is broken.

Overall I felt like Payback was pretty solid from what I watched. The bottom of the card was good working matches all the way through. The House of Horrors match was carny as bullshit and it was kind of awesome(?), but also way to over produced. Which leads me into my main thought from the night...


Payback kicked off and I felt like I was just watching another RAW. Using that same production week in week out really takes away from these smaller PPV's and doesn't make them feel any more special. The stylized sports entertainment approach is really beginning to make the product feel less interesting and more like a rehearsal. There's nothing coming over as genuine or natural in some of the matches from the PPV and to Blue's point it's all about work rate now.

The WWE really needs to figure out what they want to be and stick with it. NXT comes off like older style wrestling, but RAW/Smackdown and PPVs are beginning to blur together due to their production.

Alexa getting the belt is a smart way to get the belt on Sasha without having to have Sasha beat Bayley for it. Then they can move to Sasha vs Bayley for Summerslam.

They just need to stop and forget all about Seth's knee because I would rather take the injury just mysteriously vanishing overnight then Seth selling it on and off and then winning in the end.
