Default What wrestling shows are you keeping up with?

As the topic title says, which shows are you watching?

Iím watching:
NWA Powerrr
Impact
AEW Dynamite
NXT

I occasionally watch Raw and Smackdown if there are intriguing match ups but the shows have been lack luster for awhile. Excluding NXT Smackdown from this past Friday of course.

I need to find time to get back into New Japan, but their shows are just so long itís hard to squeeze them in. Iíll find a way to make it fit if Shibata ends up cleared to return though.

I only really make time to watch AEW.

I want to watch MLW but theres so many things that hold me back but so many things that intrigue me.

NXT is on the same time as AEW so I choose AEW because NXT aint on the network anymore. (and i cant stand watching wrestling/sports when its not live)

New Japan Pro Wrestling is definetly my favorite wrestling show in terms of Wrestling but i just have so much fun watching AEW.

Ive caught the first few episodes of NWA live but besides the first episode i have not been having a good time with NWA.

I just mainly watch MLW.

I will catch RAW, Smackdown, NXT, and AEW during commercial breaks when I am watching other stuff. But I would not go out of my way to watch any of them.

Part of me thinks that I am just not interested in wrestling anymore. But then again I love MLW and I even bought their PPV, which was the first wrestling PPV I have bought going back to the dying days of WCW (I do get the Network every year in January just for the Royal Rumble so I guess my statement is not entirely true but I would also get it for NXT as well as the Rumble.).

I'm keeping up with AEW and NXT in the sense that I'm reading the results and enjoying the competition... but im not watching it beyond two AEW Dark matches. Which were meh. I spent a few years in the indy scene and Wrestling lost its lustre after I learned the mechanisms. I cant lose myself in it.

Mostly I just feel tired watching it. So much running.

AEW
STARDOM
Tokyo Joshi
Gatoh Move (on Youtube, mostly old Shida/Emi Sakura/Riho matches and anything with Mei Suruga, Antonio Honda and the new rookies)
New Japan & DDT (I only watch parts of major shows like WK, G1 Climax, Ultimate Party)

I cancelled my WWE Network subscription. Outside the main, big PPV's (Rumble, Mania and Summerslam), I was only watching old content from the 80's and 90's anyhow.

I've been watching AEW pretty faithfully since Dynamite came on, but I don't see myself paying for a PPV again. WWE Network and New Japan World ruined that for me.

I was super devoted to watch the G1 over the summer, but I canceled World after the tournament. I do plan to jump back in as we inch closer to Wrestle Kingdom though.

Otherwise I have a cursory interest in the NWA and MLW, but neither are appointment viewing.

Quite simply, there just aren't enough hours in the day to watch it all plus anything non-wrestling.

The end result is I get keep way more abreast of the wrestling scene by listening to Post Wrestling (best news/recap wrestling podcast out there--John Pollack and Wai Ting).

STARDOM and AEW, but AEW is starting to lose me. I also watch AAA, NJPW, DDT and Zona23 casually. I'm going to start watching MLW since they're very accessible.

I've tried NXT and NWA and found them bland and boring.

I fell off on MLW, ROH, and Championship Wrestling From Hollywood/Arizona some months ago, along with IHW in Canada, Elev8 Pro, and BackBreakers Training School, but hopefully I should be able to catch up with those soon.
(MLW (and Brian Zane) is the reason I'm predicting Swerve will win a ton of belts in WWE within the next 3 or so years.)

Recently got started with AEW Dark, considering doing back-to-backs of it with NWA Powerrr since I actually have a bit of personal investment in the proximity of NWA and since Dark and Powerrr only just launched so they don't have a huge backlog to catch up on.

I'm out on AEW's goofball nerdcore wrestling, the Cody-Dustin stuff was an anomaly what they are is cutting edge trash wrestling and dorkball stuff.

NWA is great, but I'm not going to invest unless they get a real TV deal because it'll be gone soon and I don't wanna watch something that fly-by-night.

IMPACT is even worse than AEW. Saw that Joey Ryan is doing his dick stuff, all talent should leave ASAP.

ROH has that TNA death stink on it, probably because the same guy is booking it.

WWE is boring, slow, and completely non-sense.

NXT is a bush league.

So nothing right now. Will keep an eye on NJPW for WK. That's about it.

So you came on a thread about what wrestling shows you watch to run every company down and state you dont watch any wrestling - Thanks for your amazing contribution

If you donít have anything positive to add to the conversation, please donít post.

Thereís enough negativity in the world already without trolls adding to it.

Currently my rotation is AEW, MLW, and RoH. But for reasons I've detailed heavily in the RoH thread, I've been toying with bailing on them. Still love the roster there but the usage has been dreadful in my eyes for a good long stretch now.

Been meaning to catch up on NWA Power. Watched the pilot and loved it. Was like watching an 80's or early 90's syndie indie and was a glorious throwback. Also been meaning to catch back up on OVW. Fallen several months behind but have loved their work over the past few years. I didn't stop them on purpose. Just fallen through my cracks since about the spring.

I didn't watch as much wrestling a few years ago, but when I was trying to help Fleisch a little more with his RWC mod I started watching a lot more and I've mostly stuck with the following.

WWE (Raw, Smackdown and PPVs)
NXT (consistently good stuff)
NXT UK (though I've lapsed on that recently)
Impact (also lapsed on that recently)
NJPW (for major shows, the G1 and some others at random)
Lucha Underground (though that's perhaps dead now)
AEW Dynamite (my current favourite, they are breaking WWE's predictable booking patterns)
NWA Powerrr (though I'm not sure I'll keep this going, I don't have nostalgia for studio style shows)

I check out some other things from time to time, but that's more or less what I watch when I get the chance. I only have so much time and even with my desires to help with real world mods AND to make TEW20 as good as I can to help model the real world... well, I have my limits. Raw, Smackdown, NXT UK, Impact and NWA are all on the chopping block, especially as I head into the busiest time of year for work.

I've deleted a couple of post from Makhal because they go against GDS posting rules, but I have left the original message up so that people can see the sorts of things that aren't welcome here. There is no point in bashing things here on GDS as it doesn't add to any conversation to do so, and it is only at best going to serve to antagonise people. If you don't have anything good to say, or aren't capable of moderating your tone to say negative things in a constructive manner, then don't bother posting.

EDIT: As a reminder to all forumers too, don't respond to comments and start/continue arguments. Use the "Report Post" button at the top right of every message to report posts and let GDS mods handle things. That way, the bad posts don't spiral into arguments or passive aggressive statements and GDS should be better as a result.

Watching every show available at the earliest opportunity, or trying to (although I'm falling behind by a week or 2 for those ranked lower on the list):

DDT/TJPW/Ganbare
Ice Ribbon (can't watch every show since they have no streaming service but will watch everything I can find)
YMZ
NWA Power
NXT UK
AEW Dynamite (but for Dark I'm more selective. Have skipped a couple of episodes already)

Lucha Underground would also be near the top of my list once they start doing shows.

I also watch most of the new Gatoh Move matches on their YT, although I skip some of the really old ones.

MAKAI is sadly only available occasionally, but I will watch on every occasion when they decide to stream their shows on YT.

Watching only selective shows or matches depending on whether they involve wrestlers I like, in order of priority:

Stardom
Wrestle-1
Pro Wrestling WAVE
Advance Action Wrestling
Seadlinnng
Actwres Girlz
Singapore Pro Wrestling
Just Tap Out
Sendai Girls
666 Wrestling
New Nemuro Pro (although the promotion recently died due to the owner's terminal illness)
Individual produce shows that can be found on Puroresu Dreams depending who's the producer
