  1. Trips going hard on somebody

    “when I see people coming out of trying to make it, and then they pick a job where, well, they work less, the schedule is lighter, then I'm like, 'I'm glad I didn't pick you.' If you're not in it for the grind, at that point early in your career, you have no business being here”

    Why would you willingly wade through BS though? If you see a river of bullshit by the side of the road, do you think "Well, I'd better stop the car and get out to wade through that, there might be a good point somewhere in there"?. 

    Nah. You keep driving, and hope to outdistance the aroma ASAP.

    It doesn't bother me and sometimes it's funny. I mean more that it's nonsense than something I actively dislike

    I will say that Bischoff has been fairly consistent about saying that Coach TK's remarks about Ted Turner were what led him down the path of consistent AEW critique. He's said this a few times before. 

    That part he's always maintained, that's true. I think there was a period when Bischoff felt he had to hold back because of the reaction to his criticism from fans and Conrad and now he's going a little overboard to make up for it (or something)

    To me Eric is like Cornette or Disco and Konnan, they make good points occasionally but not all the time so you do have to wade through some BS to find it

    I'm shocked that Bischoff hasn't negged Tony Khan into a consultancy position yet. 

    2nd ep of Wise Choices already feels desperate, not sure Eric would be worth the money. Like his opinion or not at least Cornette has been consistent throughout AEW's run, imo Bischoff was more neutral and supportive until he felt AEW was failing and he could jump on the bandwagon

  5. Thanks @Greggulator, I appreciate the perspective. I don't want to get into it too much but I work on the other end of the financialized housing system, dealing with the fallout at ground level so to speak, and it just sucks that to fund some peoples' retirement we have to ruin others'

    Edit: Huh it didn't tag right

  6. It’s the real estate portion that I have beef with. Companies like BlackRock and groups like Real Estate Investment Trusts gambling on land/housing are what’s driving up rent and associated costs across Canada, but sometimes they’re tied to teacher pensions and it keeps people from fighting too hard even though they are getting screwed in the moment

    Think of it like this: Silver Lake raised $20 billion for its 15th private equity fund — think of it as an Easter basket. They will buy probably 10 companies with that $20 billion — each one an Easter egg. Endeavor will be one of those 10 Easter eggs. Maybe one egg will break. But will all 10? 

    Thanks, that was my understanding too but it’s good to have experts weigh in. So it would only be affected in a 2008 type crash?

    But Silver Lake now owns Endeavor. And it has to sell Endeavor at some point over the next 7-10 years so it can give money back to its investors so people who work for your state’s public works department can have a monthly check sent to them when they retire.

    What happens to the retirement funds if the investment is a loss?

    Who, Punk?  I agree!  🤣

    I think you misread me and I was absolutely not being sarcastic

    Haha nice one. And I gotcha, I like Matt and used to listen to WWW a lot but when the Bucks/Punk stuff came up I thought they were annoyingly one sided about it so I drifted away. Glad they’re still delivering for the fans though!

    Could you clarify this a bit for me? I'm not seeking out conflict, I promise. I'm just not sure what you mean.

    The Mox bit? I’m fascinated by the Rocky 3 angle and I’ve heard Jon’s version of it so I was hoping to get CM’s as well

  11. Another good opening segment and I think Roman actually managed to out-promo Rock this time (well, until clystal crear). Someone had a "Dijak > Rock" sign, the board was represented

    New DIY/Judgement Day was good stuff except for Gargano going headfirst into the announce table, hope he's okay

    Oh hell yeah, a Zayn/Gable training montage (although a little too movie of the week for me). Cole pointed out the flaw in Sami's game against Bronson Reed plus the mention of Gable wearing Zayn out and I think Gunther's attack on Gable is a fake. Also, Reed disappeared and the match never ended? That was sloppy

    Ivar and Ricochet did it right. So weird there's just a mid-card Vader hanging around

    My favorite little moment was when Rollins was on his way to the ring for the main
    Seth: I ain't dead yet
    Drew: Yet.

    Another great beatdown to end Raw. Some of those belt shots sounded gnarly

  12. I liked the interview. Nothing earth shattering, Punk always has an angle on the truth and knows how to get under people’s skins but there were some fun insights and it was nice to hear things from the horse’s mouth. I wish he’d touched on Mox more since that’s my personal ax to grind

  13. JR thinks he's helping plus he's encouraged to be grumpy by his podcast audience and is too old to give a shit anymore, it's a volatile combo for live TV. I remember when Statlander first arrived and he refused to entertain her sci-fi backstory for even a second. In the long run it was the right call but there were better ways to handle it
