    the one Batista got fined for in the cage with Jericho was November 2008 RAW.

    Shortly after there was the seg in March 09 where Jericho bloodied up Flair but I think that was just Flair (one punch and immediately started bleeding), but Flair recently talked about Vince fining Jericho $25,000.

    WWE got really strict on it around the time Punk was feuding with Mysterio. I remember Punk being frustrated that the ref had to stop the match, put on the gloves and clean off the blood multiple times.  It ruined the match.  If I'm not wrong this was during the Linda for Senator run.

  2. I always liked B-Boy,  he had a pretty decent match with Punk on the indies. He's one of those guys who you wouldn't think could mat wrestle well but he will surprise you.  Homicide is another guy in that boat.  I am assuming a lot of these guys will be at the Indy Hall of Fame the night before and will probably get spots at the PPV sunday.  Maybe we get Punk on commentary with Dave one last time?

    She is, to this day, the only person in the pro wrestling industry that I ever wrote a fan letter to.

    Boy was I smitten when I was 15. 

    Boy do I feel stupid about that these days.

     If you saw the back and forth on twitter between Joe Rodgers and the private party  you may have heard what a scum bag Joe is.  If you didn't know he was the promoter who stiffed Balls Mahoney and others on their pay. Balls recorded the famous youtube video going to Joe's house and banging on his door to get the money back.

    Long story short.  Joe had a show  in WV and he held an online raffle where a fan would get to have lunch with Sunny.  Sure enough day before the show Sunny no-showed and all of the fans were screwed. She wasn't even replaced with a name. 

    Another promotion in the area tried booking her less than a year after.  Surprise she no showed again.  I wonder how many arrests it's going to take before 1 sticks and she gets Nick Gage jail time? Or cleans her shit up.

    Court’s done almost everything to get MLW noticed except whip out a shotgun, and shoot it up into the air in the middle of a crowd. This is a newer take I guess.

    If they ran a consistent promotion like GCW does then they’d probably get more attention.

    If Pearl Jam couldn't beat Ticketmaster there is no way in hell MLW will beat Mcdevitt.  He will eat them alive.

    I just rewatched the Nitro after Uncensored 97’. Nothing may really top the pop Sting gets for clearing the ring at the PPV, but the following nights pop gets pretty close. The way the fans react you think we just won WWII. The following episode the fans go almost as crazy for Dean Malenko beating Konnan with the Cloverleaf. 

    WCW crowds were absolutely on fire in 1997.

    Also something to point out, the fans absolutely detest Larry Z in Duluth, Minnesota when they go to the commentary table after the Malenko match. Why is that? Is it because of his AWA run?

    I'm thinking they hated Larry due to the AWA stuff.

    You are dead right about the 97 crowds.  One thing that was cool to me about the big wrestling boom of 97-99 is that you would get shows in small towns.  We finally had WCW in Erie PA.  Hell we had WCW in Buffalo also. Things that we just didn't get before that and when we would get those shows the crowd would turn up and be hot for them. Sadly WCW being WCW we would also get a shit load of no shows and screw job finishes but it was better than nothing.

    Big year for Spider-Man celebrating his 60th anniversary. We're waiting to see who'll be the next creative team on The Amazing Spider-Man after Beyond ends. It's not happening but I'd love Grant Morrison on the book with what he's done with two out of the big three, Batman and Superman. Neither is Christopher Yost who is so underrated. I think it'll be Chip Zdarsky and I'd be happy with that. Finale from Peter Parker: The Spectacular Spider-Man #310 was a masterpiece, it's in my top five Spider-Man stories ever. My Dinner With Jonah from PP:TSSM #6 is great and I really liked Spider-Man: Life Story.

    I'm most looking forward to Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse - Part One (2022). There's big expectations following from the universal acclaim awarded to Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018). It's the best Spider-Man movie and one of the best comic book movies ever made.

    The 40th anniversary was memorable with Spider-Man (2002) debuting on the silver screen and Joseph Michael Straczynski writing The Amazing Spider-Man. The 50th, Dan Slott was on TASM. Alpha was fucking terrible, the Lizard story called No Turning Back was bad but it ended on a great though controversial story, Dying Wish. The Amazing Spider-Man (2012) also came out in cinemas.

    To me Spider-Man will always be THE Marvel character, he's always been my second favourite hero behind naturally (no pun intended) Batman. 

    I agree. When I hear Marvel I ultimately think of Spider-Man.  I would love to see Morrison's take on the iconic character. His Batman run was unique and I picked up his Superman omnibus but have yet to read it (heard good things)    2022= year of the Spider....Man

    Guys hear me out on this.  We added a women's tournament this year, next year they have a Senior division.  Daniel, Chozen, Johnny, Grease, and Silver.   You laugh but you know damn well it would be gold!



    I meant Krease, not "Grease"

  9. So hear me out guys,


    If all it takes to get into the Rumble match is to declare you are in the match then why doesn't everyone do it?  If you don't want to be in the Rumble why be in WWE? Logically everyone should declare themselves into the Rumble match and make the guys  (and girls) win qualifiers or something.  I say this as the Street Profits just took up 2 of the 30 spots.  I don't think a soul in the world believes either guy has a snowball chance in hell of winning.  Is the roster that thin?

    Bigelow running afoul with Andre and then Flair didnt do him any favors. 

    Wonder how different it would have been had Dusty not wanted to put the big gold on Rick Steiner and then leaving for WWF.  Would Dusty have given Bam Bam a push?  Shit in hindsight why not push for Bigelow-Flair instead of trying to put Rick Steiner in that role?

    I’ve been thinking about it and I have a question for everybody. Why wasn’t Bam Bam Bigelow are bigger star?

    What I mean by that is why was he never a Top Guy for any period of time? Why was he never a World Champion? Why is his name never brought up when talking about the best to ever do it? ECW and New Japan seemed like the only places they understood that he worked best as an asskicking heel. 

    The guy had a distinct look he could move like a man half his size, him and Lawerence Taylor main evented Wrestlemania, he had main stream appeal he was in Major Payne, the flash in the pan run with Goldberg was exciting shit it’s still exciting to watch his first month in WCW 23 years later. It’s a shame 

    Bam Bam had an odd trajectory. He was amazing in 87 WWF. He could have been a strong villian for Hogan had they not went the route of Andre. Bammer going to WCW/NWA in 88 was strange. He had the match with Barry and outside of that really didn't do much.  Had some strong runs in Japan and then back to WWF.  

    He was a strong hand anywhere he went. I know towards the end of his career he no showed a few events but outside of that he seemed to get constant bookings and was over with the crowd anywhere he went. What kid or adult is going to forget  the guy with the flame tattoo on his head?!  


    The Kliq might have hurt his 95 run, but the guy should have had gold in WWF well before then.

    this week i start 2 new promotions in my wrestling watch project: Lucha Underground (2014) and MLW Underground (2002).  MLW is brand new to me. i saw a handful of LU back when it was new, but have little memory of it. my wife (not a wrestling fan) is excited for LU as well.

    Honestly the early MLW stuff isn't bad. I believe it was my first exposure to Teddy Hart and Jack Evans.

    What are you right about? Don't say about Britt being a jerk in the past -- no one's disputing that, because no one cares. You don't seem to understand that.

    I don't know if anyone's defending her as much as saying, "Get the fuck over it; wrestlers are literally professional liars; what the fuck were you expecting?"

    who are you to decide who cares about what?  You say I'm "entitled" but re-read your posts.   


    Right about Brit,  right about J-Rose, and right about Tay.  The 3 things you all seem to keep coming back to.  

    If nobody cares then we can let it drop. But you guys aren't willing to.  More toxic shit from you all then anything else.

    It would be great to see someone challenge that bullshit because what is the purpose of a 90 day non compete clause? 80% of the people who they've released aren't stars enough anyway to help the competition in any significant way other than in ring presence and bolstering roster depth. I could see if this was the MNW why you would do something like that but in an era where the WWE brand is the star? Not really.

    Brock challenged the non-compete with Vince and he won.  He worked NJPW.  It's in his book actually. He mentions being the only one to successfully beat Vince over a non-compete.

    I genuinely believe you've hit the nail on the head here. I'm not a mental health professional by any means, but dealing with narcissists has been a pretty persistent issue in my life. One of the absolute dead giveaways is that people on the extreme end of the "grandiose narcissism" spectrum will almost always become abusive when faced with criticism or even disagreement. The sad thing is, narcissists by definition lack empathy, so there is virtually zero chance of getting a narcissist to listen to reason or understand that anything they are doing could possibly be wrong.

    It's sometimes difficult to tell if abusive language on an internet forum is stemming from actual narcissism or if it's just "anonymous keyboard warrior syndrome ."

     On the other hand, if a poster responds to criticism or disagreement in a reasonable and non-abusive way, that's a pretty good sign that they are not a narcissist, or at least not on the extreme end of the spectrum. (We ALL have some narcissistic tendencies, or exhibit occasional narcissistic behaviours, to a greater or lesser extent. It's just part of being human).

    When dealing with a "whole-ass narcissist" you can't expect to change their opinions or behaviour. But, it's interesting to see how many people disagree even in the face of a constant and immediate stream of abuse. (In this case, the number of people who disagree with "Tay and Sammy owe us the truth about their personal lives" seems to be "literally everyone else who has posted about it" which speaks well of this board and those who post here, in my opinion.

    Thank you for coming to my Ted Talk.

    You are wrong Gordlow.  I actually admitted Brit has gotten better.  With Tay and Sammy she was sitting on his lap at Steel City Con. People saw it and mentioned it on IG and she denied it and then quit Instagram for a whopping 24 hrs over it. She called the people liars when they weren't. She was in fact the one lying.  But a bunch of people on here jump and defend her. Google "Whiteknighting"  It's the same thing they did with Brit without knowing any facts.  

    I don't give a fuck who Sammy and Tay date. But when they call people "liars" it becomes an issue.

    Shut the fuck up already, no one cares. You could always let the shit drop, but you just have to keep responding. Stop responding, then. Clearly, no one gives a fuck about you, your POV, or your weirdo obsessions with certain workers who have clearly heated up more than you have. 

    If it's so funny, just laugh to yourself and move on, goddam. 

    obviously you do or you wouldn't have typed this up. What makes you the person in charge? I'm not going to stop responding when I'm right.  If you are so bothered you can always shut the fuck up.  But clearly you do care.

    I'm surprised that a poster is getting into Sleaze Thread level garbage in here without getting a visit from the Patron Saint of Outlaw Country, Johnny Cash.

    Seems like jealousy that people are being successful as wrestlers so it's time to tear them down or whatever. 

    OK Dick Tracy, 

    Jealousy you say? Of Brit? Nope. Like I said, she changed and we are cool now.  Name another worker I talked shit about?  Tay and Sammy? Nope, not jealous of them either.  Hell I've praised people on here for years. Wardlow, Facade, Shima, Lee Moriarty, Jack Pollock, Gargano,  RSP, Sam Adonis,  I can go on and on. 

    Why would I praise all of the guys and be jealous of Brit? 

    You guys won't let this shit drop. It's funny really.

    I hope I'm not the only person who read this and thought "WWE wants to sign 50-year-old Juvenud Guerrera?"  I was somewhat confused for a couple secs.  

    I guess Toni Storm is dating Juice Robinson?   Or maybe OJ Simpson, though I hope it's the former.

    easy Mark,  you don't want a the hyenas to pounce on you for discussing wrestlers personal lives on a wrestling forum.
