    Good on them for not pushing on with it

    Re: The Official Independent Wrestling Discussion Thread

    I don't even understand what happened with Enzo and Janella. Seeing the Tweet exchange, it just sounds like Joey introduced himself, Enzo got pissy, and sorta got into a fight, but not a fight, and then Enzo got more pissy with each Tweet because Janella is a wrestler and he's not in that business? Maybe I'm missing a big chunk of the story, but aren't "Shoot" angles supposed to be easy to follow?

    Is anything easy to follow now without having to pay attention to every wrestler’s sometimes-shoot, sometimes-work, tweets?

    That just reminds me of the handful of times when a wrestler would drop some news on Twitter, it'd get reported on news sites, and then that wrestler will mock the fake online journalists for spreading BS despite the fact that the BS came directly from them. I believe Sunny is one of the ones who pulled that random shit.

    I started the whole thing, jokingly all night saying I was gonna find Enzo and fight him to get a TMZ story. As we were leaving he was 3 steps ahead of me and I said “Hey, I’m Joey Janela, wanna fight” not really a polite way to introduce yourself after the twitter antics

    Re: The Official Independent Wrestling Discussion Thread

    a few weeks late to the party but have to concur with all the praise for the Starr vs Janela No DQ Ironman match. To say it shattered expectations would be an understatement. Incredible match. I liked their barbwire match but this was levels better. Cannot believe these two guys had this good of a match, in this promotion, with this gimmick. They paced it incredibly well, they laid it out in a way that was compelling the whole way through, crucially all of the non-weapons related brawling was really great and stiff - this was a fucking violent match before the first chairshot, and they made sure there was plenty of struggle throughout - all of the big spots were BIG, crowd was red hot throughout, and the blood added a tonne of drama and feeling of revenge for Janela. Even the freaking Canadian Destroyer off the apron through the table was executed in a way that didn't look stupid. I was previously of the Cornette mindset about Janela, but he really stepped up and delivered a career performance. If someone wanted to say they went into overkill territory, I could see it, but considering this was an hour long match built as a de facto fued-ender I didn't personally get turned off at any point. The ref spot was also strange and felt out of place, but I am assuming there is backstory to it.

    It may be my Match of the year, which is fucking wild.

    Re: The Official Independent Wrestling Discussion Thread

    There's a backstory to the ref stuff for sure but I'm not a regular viewer of Beyond so I didn't really get it either other than Starr's been a dick to the ref for a while now. If I had one complaint, commentary could of cleared that up and explained the relevance to a newbie.

    But yeah, awesome match, right in my MOTY thoughts, glad to see it getting so much praise.

    Re: The Official Independent Wrestling Discussion Thread

    anyone watch Darby vs Janela from PWG yet? it was stuntshow shit taken to the Nth degree. Jim Cornette would shit himself. There was some entertainment value in seeing how crazy these two would go, but really the match was trash. as in burning stinky garbage trash. my beef wasnt the violence level or goofiness of some spots, or even the lack of beef in such a match, it was the ridiculousness of them hitting such big stuff so early and consistently through the match. 30 seconds in Darby does the missed trash can Coffin Drop to the floor, a total bonkers move which is the FIRST spot in the match. 2 minutes in Janela does the missed senton to a chair on the apron and is immediately back on offence in about 10 seconds (atleast Darby tried to sell the damage at points). less than 10 minutes in Darby eats a packpage piledriver while taped to a chair. by the time they did the big spot off the balcony it barely even got a crowd reaction. and it finishes with a flash wrestling hold!

    the Starr match did a lot of raise my opinion of Bad Boy, but after watching this I thought he was bullshit

    I haven't watched that, and your description doesn't make me want to anytime soon My fear is AEW has already pigeon holed Janela in that hardcore, spotty wrestler type of role.

    oh yeah, you'll hate it. it was everything bad about Moxley vs Janela magnified.

    I haven't seen anything from Janela that makes me think he shouldn't be pigeonholed in that style. Even the Starr matches with hardcore, spot-filled matches. Darby on the other hand can do much better.

    In general King are you a fan of Hardcore wrestling or more pure wrestling? I am a fan of the high spots the hardcore stuff and things like that. I wasn't a huge fan of Janela vs. Moxley but, I was a fan of Darby/Havoc/Janela so its all opinion based I suppose.

    i like it all, its how its done that counts. atleast the threeway match knew it was a goofball undercard garbage match and wasn't trying to be anything else.

    I'm hoping with guys like Dusty and Lynn around the guys like Janela, that they'll learn and progress in a year or two. It just depends on how coachable some of these guys are.
