  1. I started posting on RSPW when I was 13. I'm 36. Two-thirds of my life is a long time to be under John's learning tree. Right before I hopped off the board for two years I made sure to send him a message telling him he's an asshole for coming at me after my ban. Wish I hadn't. Shit.
  2. Oh, did you take a poll? You can worry about whatever ridiculous thing you like. When the line gets crossed into misinformation, I'm going to speak up and correct it.
  3. Yes? I don't think you're actually disagreeing with me. I wasn't saying a recession couldn't possibly kill anyone. I was saying that comparing those numbers (which so far, AFAIK, is just one number and that number is zero) with the virus's death toll, as one poster keeps doing, is asinine. The narrative is part of an overall movement to reopen the country that will needlessly kill tens of thousands more. I'm tired of hearing it.
  4. "Assuming" "Probably" "Indirectly" "Sure" What a great bunch of smoking gun examples! My mistake, please continue to push this destructive false narrative
  5. What it isn't doing is taking lives, which was my issue with his post, unless anyone can provide examples? I'm guessing the amount of lives lost due to economic issues so far is substantially less than 65,000.
  6. He's perfectly fine as a worker and would fit right in with the "here are some matches" style of booking AEW falls into sometimes, but unless he's bringing something new to the table instead of his dorky goof gimmick there's not much of a real reason to bring him in. He did have a match during the John Cena US Title open challenge era that I remember liking a whole lot. There are worse choices to wrap up the Spears tag partner search. I'm hoping Cody and Slater are just working, because if they think bringing Slater in is a bad idea and bringing Ryder in is a good idea they've got it ass backwards.
  7. I'm going to blow Jacob's office up with phone calls that day just to make sure everything is okay.
  8. Brodie is turning 41 this year, too, and Archer is 43. If they opt not to sign Axel or whoever, I doubt it will be because of age.
  9. That's not how I remember it. Steiner started doing that after he turned heel in 1999, while Konnan had been doing his deal for most of 1998. The thing is, though - the New Age Outlaws were doing their thing before both. Like a lot of late-era WCW things, I think this is actually another example of them badly ripping off WWF Attitude.
  10. Why do you keep repeating this? It's literally based on nothing. We heard your dumb wrong opinion the first time.
  11. Kind of mad that I even had to imagine present day Doink being ruined by 20 minute promos and constant video packages with violins and dumb filters. Luger wasn't permitted to use the torture rack in WWF. I think Bruce addressed why at some point but I don't remember.
  12. The main comparison I draw between Styles and Mauro is obvious - the inorganic catchphrase that automatically sounds insincere because it's a catchphrase. But another thing that gets under my skin is the constant shouting of move names as if they are actually pertinent to the story in the ring. I don't care what the judo name of the hold is - for the purposes of wrestling it's called the Tazmission. The idea that names of moves are what makes an announcer good at his job has been a long-standing talking point I've never understood. It feels like a weird overcorrection of the issues people had with Vince's commentary.
  13. Almost certainly the most overrated announcer of all time, but it's ECW so that comes along with the territory. Most of his more obnoxious habits live on in his influence on Mauro.
  14. Best possible commentary team WWE could have right now is probably Booker/Beast-in-the-East Cole/Nigel. Joe is also great, but I'm not at all ready for them to retire him.
  15. I think calling someone a "good" or "bad" person based on some rumors you heard is enough reason to discount your entire post. You clearly aren't objectively rating commentators if you're talking about Graves fucking around on his ex-wife or whatever your problem is. And again: until everyone is ready to rake Edge, Benoit, and Noble over the coals for their bullying, no one really needs to spend any more time wagging their finger at JBL. The hate is absurdly overblown, and still has more to do with Eddy than anything else. WWE commentary is garbage, but it has nothing to do with the personal lives of the commentators.
  16. A lot of WWE announcers are legitimately awful people? What the hell are you talking about? The only one you could really make the case for is Lawler.
  17. I don't even know what you're saying. I didn't address Nakanishi.
  18. That's just my point. It's not like Cornette talking shit has derailed anyone's career. If anything it's the opposite. Basically every indie wrestler he has ever ranted about is more popular than they have ever been. Cornette talking shit about you is essentially free promotion.
  19. Cornette's many rants about outlaw mudshow wrestling are almost always caused by someone trying to get that reaction out of him by showing him the latest dumb wrestling "controversy." So yes, someone gets off on sending him these things because they enjoy the ranting. I don't know if anyone like that posts here - the two schools of thought that seem to exist here are "Fuck out-of-touch Cornette for not liking Kenny Omega's matches" and "Cornette is extremely knowledgeable and entertaining when he finally stops ranting." Getting Cornette to talk shit about you is also fantastic marketing for indie wrestlers - I don't know if WWE ever signs Lio Rush without that stupid ladder no-sell video.
  20. It isn't, and this might actually be the worst possible way the WWE could follow AEW's lead.
  21. It's extraordinarily petty how wrestling fans target wrestling personalities they don't like and try to strip away any possible credit they could be given for literally anything. Triple H worked very hard to build NXT, and performed the miracle of keeping Vince from ruining it in the process. No one deserves more credit for NXT than Triple H. You don't have to like his matches or the way the BASTARD just WOULDN'T PUT RVD OVER for this to be true.
  22. Chessman also popped up on a recent episode of MLW Fusion, which you should all be watching.
  23. Triple H is fine. Not an all-time great, but not nearly as bad as his detractors seem to think. His in-ring style isn't supposed to be exciting. I attribute the hate to burnout more than anything - of course he wasn't Rock or Austin, but Rock and Austin also were both around for 7 years to H's 25. He never goes away.
  24. He wanted his country back! And presumably wanted to finish up as a face, since he transitioned to backstage stuff almost immediately after this.
