Didn't watch all of Velocity, but I did catch the absolutely fantastic Reyrey/Jamie Noble match. Wow. That was some damn fine wrestling.

One spot that really jumped out at me... Reyrey was out on the apron, and Noble went to punch him, only to eat the obligatory Shoulder Through The Ropes To The Midsection (TM), followed by a slingshot sunset flip attempt by Reyrey. Except Noble caught Mysterio in midair, and turned it into a Northern Lights suplex, bridging into a pin for 2.

When I saw that, I litarally went "... holy crap! That was COOL!"

That's the thing I miss most about ECW... everytime I'd watch, I could pretty much be guaranteed of seeing some spot I'd rarely, if ever, seen before, be it a pin, a hold, an actual move, or just a reversal. I still remember on the last ep of ECW on TNN, Mikey Whipreck was in a tag match, and pulled off this absoltely ridiculous move. He got his opponent in an inverted crucifix (Razor's Edge position), spun around, and somehow flipped the guy into a Pedigree. It was fscking INSANE.

In WWE, you just don't get that. I understand the idea of wrestlers developing a small group of recognizable spots for the fans to look foward to, but I think it'd really be better if they were encouraged to occasionally mix in something newish, if only for variety, and to see if the fans react.

I mean, look at HHH. He's been using the high knee/facebuster/Pedigree moveset for how long? Only moves he's added that I can remember are a spinebuster (nicely done, but hardly newish) and a sleeper hold (YAWN). I'm not expecting him to pull off a Burning Hammer... but mixing in SOME new spots every once in a while, it would seem, would help keep the product fresh.

Any thoughts? Any ideas why WWE doesn't encourage wrestlers to do this more? I know the prohabition against piledriver-type moves limits things somewhat, but there are plenty of non-headdroppy moves that most American wrestling fans haven't seen before, and would probably like to see.

I agree with you. I don't think they need to be high spots, but something different every once awhile. I know they might do it on the PPV, but not everyone watches the PPV.

I was at a house about a week ago and saw Gail Kim do this awesome submission move. It was something I never seen before and don't know how to describe.





Great Muta is a wrestling GOD!! praise the Great Muta.

Was it a headscissors+armbar? Because she used that on RAW last week. And yes, it was awesome.



Lloyd: When I met Mary, I got that old fashioned romantic feeling, where I'd do anything to bone her.
Harry: That's a special feeling.

So I came into this show with kind of really positive feelings toward TNA. The previous episode delivered two fun matches and a fun Nash/Alex Shelley segment. Plus I went to the Edison, NJ ROH show this weekend.
