Well, that could have gone worse

Post by Anachronism42 » Wed Jul 22, 2015 7:22 pm

Hey! I'm a new user, recently seconded from /r/squaredcircle.

I watched wrestling a little back in the 90s, but got into it again about two years back when I moved in with my now-wife, who is a long-time fan. I'm a recovering JD in the Seattle area. I've never done any fantasy league of any sort, so this is something new for me. I probably will stick with WWE, but if you guys EVER open up a league for one of NJPW's big tournaments, I'd be on that like white on Sheamus. Much to my surprise, I'm doing ok at stablewars (other than thinking for a brief second that Jason Jordan could amount to something. Seriously, what made me think that was a good pick?).

I've never done much online forum stuff before. Other than talking wrestling (or sports, but frankly I prefer faux-sports to real sports), what do people get up to on here?

Welcome to the site. We do run NJPW PPVs from time to time. MVH is a huge fan of all things Japanese-style wrestling. Not sure if we're gonna do SW for NJPW unless they get a TV deal in the US as not a lot of our members watch it.

Forgive my ignorance if this is well known but when you say recovering JD, you mean what?

We should have set up some sort of game for the G1. Didn't think of that.

MVH has talked about more involvement with NJPW. It looks like the Reddit postings have worked.

Also, welcome to the site! Check out the Wrestling thread for everything wrestling. Discussions from WWE, TNA, and ROH to NJPW, Network, 20 Questions, Top Lists, and everything in between. Check out the forum games thread to find even more wrestling related games, including [cheap pop] Fantasy Madness [/cheap pop].

I mean JD like "wasted three years at a top law school and realized that life as a lawyer wasn't worth the pay."

... but the hallucinogens sound fun too!

Based on his explanation I presume he means Juris Doctor, the degree you get when you finish law school. That's actually the first thing I thought of when he said JD but didn't want to just presume.

Oh, sorry, yeah. Juris Doctor. You do some specialized field and you forget your jargon isn't common parlance.

You left the site and came back later? You've already stuck around longer than any new member in the last year.

I did want do that, and i know Macho wanted as well. But i figured outside of Macho and I, we only really got 3pt, Mack, Mower & i think SeeDub, who knows enough to participate in such a game. Not really sure, but those are who I've seen talk about New Japan shows in the threads.

If we see a rise in the NJPW PPV's, then I'll look into organizing something for next years tournament! But i think for now, the NJPW PPV's are a success and we should at least keep them around, as the NJPW brand is growing rapidly in popularity these days.

Edit: Well actually, we could've done a Stablewars style season, just for the entire G1 tournament. That'd have been really cool and very unique.
