I'm making this for tonight, but maybe it can keep up at later times.

Edited Description:

It started off as a suggestion thread, but evolved.

Basically, this is for anyone that feels like watching some matches.

So, anyone who wants to participate gets in on it. Just jump in at any time and make your presence known, so that you can get a turn.

- someone makes their selection,
- we watch it at the same time, discuss,
- and then the next person makes their selection.
- repeat

Come and go as you like

Basically needs two people on board, but the more the better. Lets make this happen.

At any given time, even if the thread is unactive, one can simply post "Anyone interested in starting this up?", or something to that effect, and if they get a response it can begin. Pretty casual, and always open. Just make sure you try to keep it working under the guidlines.
The most important part is there is only one video in question at a time, and everyone involved loosely discusses it.

Some rules and suggestions:

1) Embedded videos only. It just makes more sense

2) Wrestling matches are likely preferred, but it's not set in stone. Promos or segments you find interesting or must see can be selected during a turn. It's at the discretion of the chooser.

3) Turns should be regulated according to common sense. At a given time, everyone involved should be posting and discussing in the thread, so when the time is up they can take the initiative to discuss the next turn. Someone can volunteer, or if they are known to be actively participating, someone can ask them to make a pick. Of course, they don't have to do it to participate. They can watch and discuss without picking if they like, but in the interest of fairness they should get the oppurtunity, which they can then pass on.

4) Anyone in the thread can participate. However, they should make it known that they're a part of the action, so they can get their turn.

5) Only post videos when it is your turn. Any videos posted out of turn, or without announcement should be ignored so that the person who is up can get full attention and the whole thing isn't pointless.

So Destor, when you work a battle royal do you have some sort of guidelines as to how long you are supposed to stay in, or is it more like you get tired and then you find the guy who is supposed to eliminate you and tell him you've had enough for the night and then you go get a cold one?

It's just when you get bored have a guy get rid of you, or just don't counter one of his attempts.

A little about Col DeBeers

DeBeers feud with Snuka was notorious in that, even in an industry known for characters based on racial stereotypes, DeBeers overt racism was still shocking. DeBeers essentially refused to wrestle Snuka because he was not white. After a series of standoffs between the two, the feud was magnified after an injury angle where DeBeers interfered in a match with Snuka, throwing him off the top rope to the floor and delivering several piledrivers on the floor, resulting in a bloody and battered Snuka wheeled off on a stretcher. This led to a series of high-profile matches with Snuka.
DeBeers and Milliman competed in, quite possibly, one of the most infamous matches in the history of wrestling while in the AWA. In the company's dying months, the AWA created the Team Challenge Series (TCS) to try and attract more viewers. One of the matches in the TCS pitted DeBeers and Milliman in the Great American Turkey Hunt, a match where the object was to be the first to pull an uncooked turkey off of a pole tied to one corner of the ring. DeBeers was the first to grab the turkey, although the referee had been knocked out.

I think its a good idea. Although it wouldn't take place on TPWW directly, I think if you set up a chatroom for this then it would run smoother. Then you could get people to start watching at the same time and get immediate discussion.

Alright. Watching the Akiyama/Morishima match got me in the mood for Puro, so I figured I'd post this for those that aren't too familiar with Japanese wrestling. It's a great match, uber-stiff. To give you a bit of background, these two are probably considered the strongest and toughest wrestlers in Japan and this was there first ever meeting in a singles match. Real interesting segment in part 2.

I believe this was NOAH's second event in the Tokyo Dome. Not sure on the capacity but its huge. For instance, if WWE wanted to run Wrestlemania in Japan for some reason, they'd run Tokyo Dome.

To build up this match even more, imagine a match with the build-up and awe from a mark's standpoint like say, Hogan v Warrior at Mania VI, but the wrestlers have the work ability of Hart v HBK.

That's probably how Japanese fans approached this match.

It's not uncommon for wrestlers to trade strikes back forth. Doesn't always have to be chops though. This is exceptional in length and has to do with the whole thing I mentioned before about these two being the strongest and the toughest.

It's based on this whole concept called "Fighting Spirit". Basically you just dish back and forth taking each other's best shots until the strongest wrestler is determined.
