I'm talking, of course, about No Holes Barred The Movie The Match.
What do you say? I want to know how many stars you gave the “What's that smell?” scene.
How on earth are they going to deliver on that stipulation, if at all?
Will we get to see a fake eye getting pulled out?
Is that even PG?
Think this could be a WMOTYC?
Utilizing someone else allows some fun red herring teasing its Flair. Once the feud plays out you do a story where these “former friends” reunite etc. We know how and why this went down but there were other ways to go and would love to hear your, and the posters, thoughts.
One thing that really stands out is how many shows not only didn’t have a World Title match, but didn’t even feature the champion at all. This was mostly while Hogan had the title, but I noticed there are also shows when Sting and Goldberg had the title where they are nowhere to be found as well.
Was this a deliberate move to save the champion for the bigger shows or is this just one of those silly “because WCW” things?
So in your opinion, what are the best 3-5 Sting matches? I just cannot remember seeing him get much appreciation over like a 3.5 stars rating, such as the GAB match with Flair review.
The TNM wrestling simulator recently celebrated its 25th anniversary with the release of “TNM Tournament Edition“, the first version created for Windows. At its core, the new sim specializes in creating and running various kinds of tournaments with each match being simulated move-for-move and the user following along with the play-by-play.
TNM Tournament Edition has Elimination Tournaments where half the competitors are knocked out of the tournament in every round. It has Round Robins where each competitor faces every other competitor. It has multi-block Round Robins where the highest-ranked finishers advance to either an Elimination Tournament or another Round Robin to determine an overall winner.
And it has Swiss-Rules Tournaments which gained popularity through eSports. These combine the advantages of Elimination Tournaments, being fairly quick, with the advantages of Round Robins, not being out of the competition with one loss or draw, and are the best choice for tournaments with many competitors. Competitors are matched up randomly in the first round. In each of the three of four – depending on the size of the field – rounds afterwards, teams with similar records are matched up, quickly separating those who have a shot at winning from those who don't. The four or eight top finishers move on to a knock-out tournament to determine the overall winner.
Users are able to customize each tournament to their liking. Have losers advance instead of winners. Make the top two finishers from each block advance instead of just the block winner. Change the wrestlers' winning strategy by assigning different points for different types of finishes – pins may be with more than DQs, losses could even award negative points and so on. Have an Iron Man tournament or have all matches take place in a cage or perhaps all over the arena. You can even have every round rebracketed to keep the top people away from each other for as long as possible.
TNM Tournament Edition was designed with ease of use in mind, and many of its more powerful features will be hidden underneath the surface until players want them, addressing one of the main points of criticism of earlier sims from the TNM series. And it is casual-gaming-friendly in that sessions can be as long or as short as your time permits. You can always pause a tournament and go back to it at a later time. TNM TE is compatible with all wrestlers created for the TNM 7 line of simulators so you have immediate access to export files containing thousands of wrestlers from the 1970s to today.
