Lorcan (@lorcanmullan) and Simon (@simoncross3) get their creative juices flowing this week as they try to turn their hands to movie making and brainstorming ideas for what may one day become a full draft of a script about the Monday Night Wars, perhaps when wrestling was at its cultural zeitgeist.As long as you aren't one of those who don't take k…
 
It's a superfist party! Not in that way, you sicko!!!The match that has been many years in the making finally took place, as the two most talked about (for both good and ill) tag teams of the past decade locked horns for the first time, with not just the AEW tag team titles on the line, but the last time the Bucks will challenge if they fail again.…
 
After thirty incarnations of the high workrate love-in that is the G1 Climax, Lorcan (@lorcanmullan) and Simon (@simoncross3) are returning to the very first tournament, as Keiji Mutoh faces off against Big Van Vader. It's the days before NJPW World so they were working from a fan-cam footage version, but given that this was a match that Brian Pill…
 
Der ouch! Two of Europe's finest battle it out in front of no fans, but it's certainly not a quiet encounter. For the second time, a WALTER title defence of his NXT UK Championship achieved at least a perfect score from Dave Meltzer, and Lorcan (@lorcanmullan) and Simon (@simoncross3) are prepping for their second lockdown and hoping the worst thin…
 
You may have had to wait a week for another five-star match, but for the lucky people who saw the Ibushi-Suzuki match from last week, they literally only had to wait a minute or two before Kazuchika Okada and Shingo Takagi locked horns and had another match that Dave Meltzer gave a better-than-perfect 5.25 star rating. Lorcan (@lorcanmullan) and Si…
 
I suppose we should have made a bigger deal about this being the 150th match to get rated five stars or higher. But we didn't, so there's that. A relatively barren G1 Climax as far as perfect scores go, but Lorcan (@lorcanmullan) and Simon (@simoncross3) are still being treated to a match with hard hitting and loud yelling in Japanese, as the Golde…
 
We're back with another match of the week, and this time Lorcan (@lorcanmullan) and Simon (@simoncross3) return to the world of lucha libre to review the match rated as the best of the year by Wrestling Observer readers in 2000, and the match that is more often than any other cited as the greatest in the history of lucha libre.patreon.com/lmtyspodf…
 
Part match review, part discussion on the current day wrestling crowd, Lorcan (@lorcanmullan) and Simon (@simoncross3) are in a more philosophical mood this time as they both try to understand how the situation we're in at the moment does or doesn't affect the artistic merit of a wrestling match. I don't know if I've sold this episode well...https:…
 
It's Simon's go this time, and he's decided to go into that most often derided sub-genre of wrestling: the celebrity match. In the biggest show of them all (and the one most associated with these matches) at WrestleMania XXIV as The Big Show battles arguably the greatest boxer of all time in Floyd Mayweather. The boxer vs. wrestler match is a gimmi…
 
Just before the world shut down and required a reboot that's been suffering from severe lagging issues, AEW had provided us with another five star match between two top tag teams. Six months later, another clash between two teams, but in a very different environment, has also earned a perfect score. So Lorcan (@lorcanmullan) and Simon (@simoncross3…
 
A new series sees the LMTYS lads Lorcan (@lorcanmullan) and Simon (@simoncross3) take it in turns picking a match from long and varied history of pro wrestling and discuss it for as long as they feel like discussing it. Lorcan's pick sees the man oft-cited as the greatest wrestler of all time, Lou Thesz, defend his NWA World Heavyweight Championshi…
 
We went all over the place with this one. 200 episodes will get to your brain in some way, shape or form, so it was somewhat inevitable...lmtyspog@gmail.compatreon.com/lmtyspodtwitter.com/lmtyspodfacebook.com/lmtyspod"I condense it down to this. Those people who like professional wrestling, no explanations needed. For those who don't like it, any e…
 
So the world went a bit crazy this year, didn't it? Well, thanks to an interim that wasn't intended to be quite so sparse on the upload front, Lorcan (@lorcanmullan) and Simon (@simoncross3) are here to give you an update on where they're going for the forseeable future, as LMTYS will now become a year-long weekly podcast with a series of different…
 
It's the second five (and a quarter) star match to happen in one day, but on a different continent as AEW presents its final PPV show before becoming a weekly TV show. It's one of the founders that yet again takes part in the match as The Young Bucks take on their non-union Mexican equivalents in The Lucha Bros. Add to a feud already known for its …
 
Our final WWE match of the series, and our first one under the NXT UK brand. It's also the first match wrestled in the UK to gain (more than) the perfect score from Dave Meltzer. "The Big Strong Boy" Tyler Bate attempts to reclaim his WWE United Kingdom Championship from "Der Ring General" WALTER. So early into this latest WWE spin-off brand and th…
 
It's the final of the G1 Climax and, as of time of uploading, the final match on this list to gain a perfect score (or higher!) from Dave Meltzer to be presented by New Japan. This time Kota Ibushi attempts to jump that final hurdle that eluded him the previous year and win the biggest tournament in wrestling. The man standing opposite him is the a…
 
Kota Ibushi's hopes to go one step further from the previous year's G1 Climax runner-up has the intimidating penultimate hurdle of 'The Rainmaker', recently reunited with his precious IWGP Heavyweight Championship. 'The Golden Star' is also burdened by the fact that whilst he needs to win the match within the 30-minute time-limit, Okada does not ha…
 
It's a battle of the burly, brawny powerhouses as G1 Climax debutant Shingo Takagi has been tearing a path through New Japan with his chops, lariats, and bruising strikes. Now he's up against a man who made a reputation out of chopping, lariating, and brusing everyone in their way for the past five years of G1 show-stealing matches. It's 'The Drago…
 
It's another faction civil war during the G1 Climax, as it's Los Ingobernables de Japon's turn to put friendships aside to battle it out. But this goes beyond faction friends, as there is a deep-lying story between these two wrestlers spanning twenty years! Lorcan (@lorcanmullan) and Simon (@simoncross3) are here to try to decide whether it gains f…
 
It's a return to Reseda, California, and another match of six men flying through the air, hitting high spot after high spot, and all in front of the notoriously rabid PWG crowd. This time it's six of Mexico's finest doing everything they can to steal the show and continue to push forward the Lucha Libre tradition of in-ring action. Lorcan (@lorcanm…
 
It's another CHAOS civil war to gain a perfect score from Dave Meltzer. As is usually the case, the only reason stablemates are facing each other is because it's one of New Japan's annual tournaments, and the heavyweight ace Okada is facing the junior ace Ospreay. It's IWGP Heavyweight Champion vs. IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion and it's one of t…
 
This is such good shit. Recently liberated from WWE and the Dean Ambrose moniker, Jon Moxley is reborn and has been travelling around many a promotion to pick a fight. He enters the G1 Climax with something to prove, and a man in Tomohiro Ishii is more than happy to provide the test he's looking for in a New Japan ring. Your wartime correspondents …
 
It's fair to say that the first half of 2019 has been a remarkable six month period for Will Ospreay. He opened the year winning the Never Openweight Championship in the Tokyo Dome at Wrestle Kingdom, he claimed his second Best of the Super Juniors tournament, and followed that up with reclaiming the IWGP Junior Heavyweight championship only four d…
 
It's been a mere four days since Will Ospreay both won the Best of the Super Juniors tournament and scored another five-star match in the eyes of Dave Meltzer. But here is doing it again in the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship match that his BOSJ victory guaranteed. Facing him on the opposite corner is Dragon Lee, one of the most exciting young…
 
It's the third consecutive Best of the Super Juniors to gain five stars, and it's between two men that were treading the fine line of the junior and heavyweight divisions of New Japan. Powerhouse and longtime Dragon Gate ace, as well as newest LIJ member, Shingo Takagi enters on a perfect group stage record of 9-0 whilst Ospreay battles through a p…
 
After a last-minute booking for the previous NXT Takeover show, this time Johnny Gargano and Adam Cole have had time to develop their feud, and this was all about proving something. Gargano has to prove that he's not a flash in the pan, and Cole is challenged to prove he can win the big match without any interference from his fellow Undisputed Era …
 
From its official announcement on New Year's Day 2019, to its first five-star match less than six months later, it's fair to say this has been an impressive first year for All Elite Wrestling. What makes this even more unlikely is that it's a match between two brothers who had previously wrestled a disappointingly forgettable match with each other …
 
It's Best of the Super Juniors time yet again, but for the first time in the tournament's history, it's a block match and not just the final that gains the perfect score from Dave Meltzer. If there's been a stand-out star in 2019 you can make a valid case that it's Will Ospreay, and this match with fellow hot up-and-comer Bandido is the start of a …
 
After more than a year of build-up, the epic feud between Johnny Gargano and NXT Champion Tommaso Ciampa was supposed to finally blow-off in the NXT Takeover before WrestleMania. However, with only weeks to go, Ciampa required neck surgery and Takeover had lost its main event. With little time to get people interested, leader of the Undisputed Era …
 
So the Meltzer Five-Star Project has finally lapped itself with the first match to get the perfect score rating from Dave that happened after Lorcan (@lorcanmullan) and Simon (@simoncross3) had started this project and uploaded episodes. Appropriately enough, it starts with the main event of a match at the Tokyo Dome as Kenny Omega now enters a Wre…
 
It's the final Debrief before Lorcan (@lorcanmullan) and Simon (@simoncross3) have finally completed their year-long five-star project. 2018 was when the five-star dam truly broke, resulting in twenty-one matches given the perfect rating that had only a few years earlier had gaps of over a year between matches. What changed? What non-five-star matc…
 
With only two weeks left in a miraculous year of perfect matches, in the opinion of Dave Meltzer, New Japan were able to squeeze one last five-star affair before 2018 reached its conclusion. It involved four men who have all been involved in multiple perfect matches this year, and it was one of the final chances for the IWGP Heavyweight and NEVER O…
 
As we wind our way down to the end of the record-breaking year for five-star matches that was 2018, we have our one and only match featuring Kazuchika Okada to be a team affair, as 'The Rainmaker' teams up with his CHAOS cohort 'The Stone Pitbull' to face The Golden Lovers. It is, at time of release, the final in-ring encounter between Okada and Ke…
 
Hiroshi Tanahashi continues his miraculous journey back to the main event of Wrestle Kingdom to challenge once again for the IWGP Heavyweight Championship. In order to reach that match against Kenny Omega, though, he must first finally claim a victory over the man who replaced him as the Ace of the promotion in 'The Rainmaker' Kazuchika Okada. Whil…
 
After producing six five-star (and above) matches in the build up, it seems that once again they've saved the best for last as the G1 Climax final for 2018 earned a whopping five-and-three-quarter stars from Dave Meltzer. A generational conflict that sees the Ace of the Universe Hiroshi Tanahashi try once again to turn back time as he faces off aga…
 
When Golden Lovers collide! It's a match everyone wanted but feared what would happen if it did. Having finally reunited a few months earlier, Kenny Omega and Kota Ibushi find themselves in opposite corners to decide who wins the G1 Climax B Block and faces Hiroshi Tanahashi in the final. Lorcan (@lorcanmullan) and Simon (@simoncross3) are still ba…
 
It's fair to say that losing the IWGP Heavyweight Championship has affected Okada. We're not explicitly saying he might be partaking in certain narcotics that has affected his behaviour, but he certainly seems to be a man feeling a since of liberty sincce he's no longer carrying the mantle of champion. In the other corner is his greatest rival, and…
 
It's the final match of the self-contained round robin in B Block of the 2018 G1 Climax. Kenny Omega and Tomohiro Ishii both have victories over Hirooki Goto that gained the full five stars from Dave Meltzer, they now go head-to-head themselves as the flash and spectacle of the leader of the Bullet Club meets the no-nonsense Stone Pitbull in a brui…
