  1. Flair didn't blade from that. He said in his book and elsewhere that Savage did it on him.
  2. It's probably a Vince thing on one of his lists. DO say this. DON'T say that. I tried to watch most of this show. The one part that cracked me up was Alister's match. When he hit the kick on that poor kid, the referee's facial expressions were amazing. The ref was like DAMN. So I guess a prefilmed match will get around Taker's limitations. It's amazing how a 42 year old AJ Styles is the young guy in this match.
  3. That's the only safe option at this point if he won't postpone or cancel. Of course this is Vince, so when Tampa pulls the plug on the show I fully expect Stephanie to do another speech about how her dad has overcome to many adversity's in life.
  4. If the show goes on, maybe they'll take this as a sign to trim the show so it doesn't run almost eight hours start to finish.
  5. Well I was talking more about Moppy and to a lesser extent, Chavo's old horse Pepe. You know if they just had him come out with the big spider weeks ago and played it off as he was insane, it could have worked.
  6. I can sort of understand killing the "pet" if Rowan was say doing the Perry Saturn "Moppy" act and we all knew it was a fake spider, but he loved it so we in turn loved it. Seeing it get squashed by some heel looking for some heat wouldn't be so bad. But this wasn't that. Drew didn't need it. I guess we should be thankful they didn't put like a balloon of blood in there and added a loud squish sound (though they would be the type to do that in post).
  7. God that was a great show top to bottom. I think AEW finally hit their stride. There was almost nothing wrong with that show tonight. I loved how the cage looked. It sort of looked like an old Memphis style cage where it surrounded the ring all the way to the floor. Also looked like a cage from Fire Pro Wrestling so it's entirely possible they went with that. That moonsault though was breath taking. Cody vs. MJF is gonna be their Dusty vs. Tully feud. It's going to on for years. Can't wait to see Cody goad MJF into a bullrope match down the line.
  8. These shows work so much better on Saturday nights. I only watched like the last third of the show with most of the tag title match and Cole vs. Ciampa. I thought Cole vs. Ciampa was a great match but at the same time it was so over the top with all the kickouts. The only thing I don't get is why they had Gargano turn on him now. They could have teased that a bit up until the Wrestlemania takeover. That would be a nuclear feud to go into the summer. But yeah some of the stuff Ciampa took with his neck made me cringe. Kinda like watching Brock vs. Daniel Bryan when Brock was just ragdolling him for the first 10 mins of that match. I still don't get how regular piledrivers are bad but doing the destroyers and air raid crash from the top rope is perfectly fine. I'll watch the start of the show later on today. I saw results, but I can still watch and appreciate the matches.
  9. Bret always said he hated Flair's chops because they were so stiff. I can't imagine him taking a stiff european uppercut or any number of superkicks now.
  10. Some guy said fucking as he was being interviewed after a penalty. ABC didn't hit the dump button fast enough so it got broadcast and Twitter is loving it.
  11. MJF is on another level with his heel work. I loved the end of the lashes when Cody took the tenth one and MJF was all "SON OF A BITCH" because he realized not only did Cody survive, but he's now a step closer to that match at the PPV. Does Cody have to beat Wardlow in the cage to move onto the match with MJF or does he just have to have the cage match? I was wondering about that because they made a big deal out of Cody having to survive the lashes...not just taking them. Also I loved Santana's promo on Moxley. It's a shame they don't have a working relationship with NJPW yet because they could really build on Moxley having a week from hell having to fight Minoru Suzuki this weekend then Santana looking to take his other eye.
  12. I wasn't sure which company she was in over there. I just remember reading her Japanese bookings are her number one priority. I stand corrected.
  13. Because she still lives in Japan and her Japanese bookings take priority. Shida moved to the United States. I love Riho, but if there was a choice between her and Shida now to be champion, Hikaru all day long.
  14. I've always been of the opinion that the XFL could have probably lasted a few years had Vince been a silent partner. But of course you know it has to be about him. Speaking of Vince, I saw this posted earlier on Reddit. It does explain alot ratings wise over the last few years. Here's a spread sheet of ratings someone put together. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1QD_lZphVdOnvQyX_eV0iuDP9rbxFeJ4Neq2usRFWSyc/edit?usp=sharing I honestly wonder if they were looking at all the numbers and George Barrios and Michelle Wilson tried to make a point that his vision is killing the company. I mean obviously the WWE is going to survive. They're not going to have a slow death like WCW. But they could easily head back to the mid 90's.
  15. I know I should have hated it, but the whole Corbin getting dumped with dog food thing had me laughing my ass off. All that was missing was a dog licking his face "ITS OK CORBIN...NOM NOM NOM".
  16. Rumors are swirling this has to do with that XFL lawsuit about the WWE lying about if they use WWE money to fund it.
  17. You know he did it because he has a victory over God.
  18. I'm trying to remember what exactly the WWF was up against during the peak of the attitude era when they were drawing over 6 million viewers. I have to wonder in today's tv world, even with peak Austin and Rock, I don't think they would come even close to those numbers. There's simply too much competition.
  19. I have never heard that. Where did this information come from?
  20. I hate the whole "no one comes to save anyone" policy the locker room seems to have. If this were the mid 80s, the whole face locker room would have come running out with chairs in hand to run off Orton. Now we just sit around and watch for five or so minutes as the feel good story of Edge returning is turned into a horror story with Orton trying to rebreak his neck. I'm sure it will look a little better when the edited version is up on youtube, but the long gaps live just reinforced my anger over WHY DIDNT ANYONE COME OUT TO SAVE EDGE?
  21. They have 10 alternative language options. It wouldn't be that hard to add the production feed to that sap list
  22. I have a feeling Charlotte is gonna be the iron woman of the women's match. Same deal as her dad at Number 3. I mean she's not doing anything else, so they need something for her.
  23. According to Renee, Jon is a huge "This is Us" fan.
  24. I can't blame Slaughter if he is sticking to character after all these years. I mean that's how he was trained. You got your gimmick and you lived it. I honestly can believe at some point he believed he really was Sgt. Slaughter. Having nightmares about battles with Cobra, training Pvt. Gagne.
