  1. 2017 ROH DISCUSSION THREAD

    I've always thought Cody's version of the move looks awkward. I keep waiting for a guy to get his neck borked taking the move.
  2. SEPT 2017 TV DISCUSSION

    Watched E2 of Discovery. Yeah, I signed up for the streaming service. I'm either going to drop it or do something to stream internet feeds to an actual tv. No interest in watching on my laptop, long-term. Anyway, the back half of the Discovery pilot was also pretty damn good. Maybe better than the first hour. Legit excited to see where they go from here. Episode 2 didn't end with the important pieces arranged the way I thought they'd be. I do wish we had a better idea where the show goes from here - I'm assuming next episode will start introducing us to the supporting cast
  3. SEPTEMBER 2017 WRESTLING DISCUSSION

    Is Hawkins less than 205 lbs? I can imagine his first win being over Enzo to win the cruiserweight title.
  4. WWE No Mercy 2017

    I assume it involves going down into someone's parents' basement, grabbing a wrestling fan by the udders, and tugging until he spurts. I can probably find a gif, but please don't make me.
  5. SEPTEMBER 2017 GIFS

    This may be the least hurty move I've seen in a wrestling ring lately....
  6. SEPTEMBER 2017 WRESTLING PHOTOS THREAD

    I'm guessing Mike will have some free time that weekend.
  7. NFL OFF FIELD ISSUES

    If this somehow leads to Mexican-Americans teaching Trump supporters how to do a proper frog splash, I may be able to live with it.
  8. SEPTEMBER 2017 WRESTLING DISCUSSION

    Lol, I'm picturing poor Rippa having to run a 512 man tournament to get everyone in. Myself, I could see Dean Ambrose riding the wave all the way to the finals. Give him the right draw and he can damn well rebound clothesline his way past Dolph and Enzo.
  9. WWE No Mercy 2017

    I won't be surprised when Alexa is the first one to pin Asuka in a WWE/NXT ring.
  10. SEPT 2017 TV DISCUSSION

    I thought that Star Trek: Discovery was very good. Still not interested in streaming, but I'm contemplating subscribing to CBS All Access tonight so I can see part two (the pilot is a two-parter and ended on a cliffhanger last night).
  11. SEPTEMBER 2017 WRESTLING DISCUSSION

    I've heard of Sportskeeda but only in the past month or so. Never heard of Bill. I'm leery of Sportskeeda. Site reminds me a lot of those wacky sites I see when I use Google to search for deadstock Nikes and come upon 100 sites selling obvious fakes and using Engrish phrases in their return policy.
  12. 2017 NFL: WEEK THREE

    Lol, WWE events are so long these days I thought he pre-show had already started. Just what the Steelers game needed: another disputed call. Though it looks like the Bears are about to win, so no one will care too much.
  13. Purotopia General Discussion: 2017!

    Edit: Wrong thread. Oops.
  14. FLOSLAM/WWN HAS OFFICIALLY HIT TIRE FIRE THREAD STATUS

    Yeah, their best month was 2000 subscribers/buys. I don't find either side too sympathetic in this dispute, though I hate to label FloSlam a heel because I'm not sure they did anything more than do what money marks usually do: be too gullible and get taken advantage of by a money mark. From what I've read, I'm thinking Gabe did fake the books - that seems fairly certain. I'm a little skeptical that that was the deciding factor in signing the contract and they would have walked away if they'd seen different numbers. Meltzer makes them sound overly eager to get into this deal - more so than WWN - and it doesn't sound like they did a lot of their due diligence. I tend to think FloSlam jumped into a bad deal, didn't do well financially under it, and started looking for an excuse to get out. One of the articles - Bix, I think - noted that, at their peak, they had fewer than 2000 buys/subscriptions per month. That said, the numbers Gabe provided were obviously questionable. Gabe drug his feet providing the data, made "Dog ate my homework" excuses, claimed the data was lost, and belatedly provided the figures when it was clear the deal might not proceed if he didn't produce anything. There were a fair number of red flags along the way, and FloSlam should have looked at the data with a healthy degree of skepticism. You can only claim that the figures provided were fraudulent if you didn't try to get independent verification. I kinda doubt going through the books of a small wrestling promotion that runs a handful of times a year is as complex as, say, Walmart. I also doubt that Evolve's subscriber base is so large that you couldn't just look over the spreadsheets and figure out that some names appeared multiple times. I'm not too sympathetic to FloSlam either because, even though refusing to carry further WWN events is understandable, it needlessly screws over their customers. Also, even though Gabe probably negotiated in bad faith and probably did violate the terms of the contract, there's no legal finding to that effect. Gabe can argue that FloSlam violated the contract first, by refusing to carry WWN events last weekend. If WWN goes to court and fails to get a ruling in their favor, they'll unquestionably be on the hook for breach of contract. The smarter play would have been to continue to carry WWN events while things play out in court. Or, to try to get some sort of injunction temporarily negating the contract and thus removing their obligation to broadcast WWN. I'm guessing they didn't broacast Evolve last weekend because they are hemorrhaging money and either don't have the funds or things are so dire they didn't want to pay their crew. I'm a little skeptical a monetary judgement against WWN would ever be satisfied, except maybe in bankruptcy court.

    Drifter? Or did Vince find another way to embarrass Corbin?
