    Yeah sure thats fine. i could book better outcomes for WWE, ROH, Impact or AEW with refs not calling DQs when they should be calling them.

    I think your idea is great( honestly you should watch the ROH Pure Division and the tournament as it had crafty booking like that)but a lot happened that day that ultimately changed the show around. i just think looking at Moose vs Bennett as a small part of the show fixed my issues with it.

    What did you think of Woods vs Moriarty or that Tag Match which were both really good?

    Josh vs Gresham was also really good despite a questionable finish to some. i was completely fine with the double pin.

    I kinda echo EC on the other matches. I thought the tag match was the highlight of the night, I thought the opener was fine but unremarkable.

    Neither was a strong enough match to recommend a show that I overall found pretty unfulfilling.

    Re: TERMINUS General Discussion Thread

    I know it's easy to say as a viewer with the benefit of hindsight but I honestly think I would have said this even before the event... Just because you're building your company around this set of rules doesn't necessarily mean you need to show them off at every event/right off the bat. Even if you are going to go with that DQ finish in Moose/Bennett, work it in there a little more dramatically maybe? I felt like the match had barely even began and then next thing you know it's over because a man tossed another over the ropes. It was really jarring and you could tell it went over like a lead balloon. Like I said, just be more judicious with when you use that rule especially, because a big wet blanket like that in the middle of the event can really disrupt the vibe.

    i'll be tuning in to the second show for sure, but definitely remain underwhelmed by the show as a whole, though i'm generally pretty forgiving with wrestling, so it'll probably be a year or a price increase before I give up on it.

    Do we know if it's an "in" thing, or just making an appearance at the next show?

    Re: TERMINUS General Discussion Thread

    I kind of feel like the first show was meant to get over these rules so that a year down the line they can get them over and have proper/better reactions. I don't know if it'll work and it's a risk but if that's true then I admire them for doing something different and trying to open up different avenues for match finishes. Obviously in the first show it led to a lackluster and underwhelming show but I do think there's hope if they have a dedicated vision. The production screwups are more damning as that stuff will make people not pay again and usually not come back at all. On top of it even without the issues and rule stuff the wrestling just wasn't actually that good which I think will change with the talent being as good as they are if this lasts.

    This feels like a lot of red flags have gone off after only 1 show and it has me worried for this longterm.

    Serena Deeb has been announced for the second show. Genuinely one of the best, most well-suited talents they could have announced I feel.

    Re: TERMINUS General Discussion Thread

    Well, she is in a relationship with self-admitted rapist Marty Scurll, including marrying him AFTER he admitted that he had sex with a sixteen-year-old who was too drunk to consent, and she will block people on twitter if they point out that her husband groomed a teenager who he was training to be a wrestler and then got her drunk.

    Davey Richards is the latest talent announced for the second show, virtually guaranteeing that at least one match will have to be changed due to a no-show.
