They definitely need to get on that.

Is Jimmy Havoc good? Haven't seen much of him, but I wasn't super impressed with him here. Heard a lot about him though. Liked Travis Banks in their match though.

I've been making my way through Progress (I'm at chapter 15 now I think) and I think he's awesome. I suppose it's all up to how well he gels with whoever he's working with though

Him and Ospreay are pretty great together

I'm just super salty about one hit kills. I nop the floor with him all the way til 5% health, and the he does that spell that I can't see cause of the camera.

It's a she, how dare you

I find something satisfying about grinding away at a boss and knowing the ins and outs of its moveset, even if you get caught by one shots. Only time I can't stand it is when the fight either feels way too long or if you don't seem to be doing enough damage

I don't remember any one shots though? There's the lightning effect but there should be an audio cue, just gotta keep dodging to roll away from em. Haven't fought her since the game came out

The key to Ebrietas is to stay on top of her, behind her if possible (avoiding any swipes/smashing)

Totally agreed, I absolutely loved it. Yano in the G1 is always fun for silly upsets and to give guys a break for one night at least.

Their match last year was fun too but this years was the funniest. Loved Red Shoes interacting with them too.

Finished SSS 16 Day 1. Trent Seven's promo was fantastic. And Riddle knocking him out immediately was even better.

Andrews/Flamita was MOTN, as expected.

Flamita is criminally overlooked. Guy is one of the best luchadors in the world and I feel like most don't even know his name.

The problem with luchadors is that until they work the US, no one really cares? Even a stint in DG isnt that big of a deal. For now only NJPW counts really for recognition. Like I can go on and on about Hechicero, who is probably top 5 technical wrestlers in the world, but barely anyone knows him because his best technical matches are on mexican indy shows.

It also doesn't help that there's a ton of luchadors that can pretty much do the same thing as Flamita and theyre just as good or will be as good soon.

BOLA is going to be his coming out party for sure though, especially that 6man tag match.

Yeah, I'm just awful at not being able to stop drinking. Only really get drunk once a month if that these days, but went out for a couple after work, then came home earlyish because I'd booked a grocery delivery which had beer that usually sits in the fridge until I have company.

Next thing I know I'm 15 pints deep playing Overwatch at 4am and making Gin and Tonics because the beers gone.

Still, other than fogetting my garlic bread, that was a great breakfast. Sauteed sweet potato instead of hash browns. I can dig that.

Surprisingly enough...fixed. Elgin really stepped it up this tourney. Did not expect this sorta push. So far though I think the best matches have been ZSJ vs Ibushi and Suzuki vs Evil also Elgin vs Okada came outta nowhere to be a great bout.

They're all great and they could get you hyped as a 12-14 year old.

Overall I just really love the low quality feel to wrestling circa 95-97.

Going through all those matches could be draining. It's a ton of wrestling with most matches coming in around 8-10 minutes each. So definitely pace yourself.

The original RAW intro ruled (with the jazzy Dato sax).

But Nitro tops everything (if we're just talking Mondays).
