I haven't watched Dominion yet, I'll be saving that for tonight. But I did see that KENTA is in NJPW and declaring himself for G1!

Haven't seen it beforeaither but Opspreay vs Dragon Lee sounds like it was amazing

Ospreay is fantastic in ring, but he's so thin skinned on twitter.

Also KENTA in NJPW should be absolutely great.

I'm doing the Fierce Females show. A Sunday is helpful to me so I'm game. I don't know the product enough to shell out on the on demand but a good show there will sell me on it.

Gisele Shaw had a weird performance at Fight Club Pro in April. Started botchy and then ended up turning in one of the best performances of the weekend. I'm interested to see if that level of inconsistency is a thing.

Nice one. I've been to the last two and they were a great mix of different kinds of matches and wrestling. Can only imagine this one will be the same. I've not seen her wrestle live before but heard good things about Gisele Shaw (she was at the recent WWE trial in Europe and the UK) so looking forward to checking her out. The last few shows have mainly been Scottish and Irish talent but they've booked more international talent for this one. In August Nanae Takahashi and Natsuki Taiyo from SEAdLINNNG are running a four-day seminar at their academy and their next show is the end of that week (September 1st) so I imagine they'll be wrestling on that card. The last show was meant to have Mercedes Martinez on the card but she got stranded in London so I'm hoping she'll be back at some point as she's on my list of talent I want to see wrestle live. 

TBH you're probably better off waiting a while to get the on-demand service unless there's a show or match you really want to see. They've only got two full shows and most of their last show (the rest of it is being uploaded incrementally) on it so far as they don't have footage for a lot of their previous shows or they're still trying to source it. It's £9.99 so it's the same price as the WWE Network for not even a fraction of the content but once they have a more extensive back catalogue it will definitely be worth having.

If they upload a show a month, I might even pay that. Women's wrestling in the UK as a big thing is still in it's infancy. I won't support it if it's shit of course, but I've seen enough to kinda know that it's not and I want to support it.

Gisele Shaw looked like a fucking star, and shouldn't have been in a piss break match, but it is what it is. Women shouldn't have been on the weekend at all given that all they would have been was a novelty. It's going back to the days of old on shows like that. Not that I'd complain about the DTTI weekend which was a fucking blast, but the use of a women's match on night one is a complaint I'd use. If Takahashi especially is on the show, I'll mark like f**k.

Oh, and not even remotely surprised that, without the smoke and mirrors of a brawl, Jericho isn't even close to the wrestler he was.

He is 48 in fairness. He's also still entertaining as f**k.

Oh absolutely. And he's still got a tremendous mind for it, hence why he can turn in utterly phenomenal performances in brawls. The guy knows what he's doing. But I was getting slated on this thread for saying he's just not THAT good anymore. A genuine GOAT contender got what out of him in a normal match as what I'd expect from him.

Lee vs Ospreay, Ibushi vs Naito and Okada vs Jericho from Dominion were all stunning, fantastic run of bouts at the top of the card.

Really great show. I've decided I need Ishii vs Shingo. Whether that be for the title or in G1 I'm not fussed, just give it to me ASAP.

Should imagine we will see Shingo in the NEVER picture soon yeah, seems the natural progression

Tell you what though, as much as I love watching them, Ibushi and Naito really need to reign in the neck bumps, legit watched that with the fear at some points....Ibushi especially is going to end up another Shibata if he carries on like that. Thought that German on the apron near killed him!

Now I know punk isn’t coming back.

 

I know this.

 

But the next AEW ppv is in Chicago and the poster has a very Punk feel about it.

Not really, Punk just had a very Chicago feel about his gear.

Chad Gable is now on 205 Live. Yup give it to me.
Is 205 still going great guns? I'd have been all over Gable vs Murphy had Murphy still been on there.

I'm not sure. I very rarely tune in. @Principal Flutie would be the one to ask.

It's still extremely solid. Keeps to the formula well, but it's not pulling out the MOTYC it previously was. Well worth an hour of your week though.

EDIT: Worth noting that this week's episode is a corker.

Yep, Gable vs Gallagher and the 4-way main event last night were both fantastic. Also enjoying the Kanellis/Drake stuff and where that’s going
