    AUGUST 2018 WRESTLING DISCUSSION.

    I wouldn’t necessarily say that WWE told them to do it but I do think some people had agendas here. They already had a bone to pick with Dave and this was their chance to pounce. This is coming from that who doesn’t even like Dave very much and one of my favorite wrestlers (Rollins) went after him but I really think this is the case.

    Well yeah. The thing is the WWE wrestlers and employees going at Dave should be keeping the same energy all the time and not just when there’s an easy target. Otherwise, they look like hypocrites.

    AUGUST 2018 WRESTLING DISCUSSION.

    Charles had the perfect take about this on PWO: “I agree that the Dave-Peyton Royce interaction itself was what should happen in cases like this. He said something hurtful and offensive, the person hurt confronted him, and he issued a public apology. (He admittedly bungled that by calling her attractive again. Then he apologized again.) But now it's turning into something where Prichard, Russo, and Bischoff cultists, WWE apologists who don't like that he likes NJPW matches better, and more general Twitter trolls are using it for their own gain, and WWE wrestlers are piling on to get brownie points with company management and make it seem like they don't talk to him even though they do. (Charlotte in particular has probably known Dave Meltzer since she was a little girl, so she's not fooling anyone.) The reason I'm likely to give him the benefit of the doubt on this one (while also thinking this hopefully puts an end to Dave's cheap Twitter gimmick) is that this is a guy who has championed women's wrestling for more than thirty years. Joshi was sort of viewed as this Harlem Globetrotters wrestling-like thing by Western fans (and wrestlers) until Dave started praising the athletes as being better than the men. His coverage of it affected the way that men worked. Before all of this surfaced, he was asked about why Aja Kong didn't work out in the WWF and pointed to her working style scaring old white men stuck in their ways. I'm not sure there's anyone else who has spoken out more about the treatment of women in wrestling than Dave Meltzer, although no, that doesn't give him a license to just say what he wants. Some people are worth our contempt. Dave, as much as he deserves this public smack down in some ways, as it's the unavoidable end result of a Twitter gimmick that's beneath him, doesn't. Wrestlers are as spineless as ever when they go overboard to join the Dave pile-on and won't dare say anything critical of their own company's business practices in public. I used to sympathize with their position in that sense, but now I don't.”

    The thing with this whole controversy is that it shows that the WWE roster and employees was just looking for a reason to lash out at Dave. Even after the apology, they kept dogpiling on him.

    They’re still going back to Saudi Arabia every year too.

    Why do people get upset at Meltzer for “breaking the scale” with these 6 and 7 star ratings when in 1999, he gave a match -459.4 stars?

    So this show isn’t selling out. It would be kinda upsetting if they weren’t able to sell out the 5000 seat Walter Pyramid here. They are back in the SoCal market. The excuses for the Cow Palace show won’t apply here.

    I’m really not looking forward to Suzuki/Naito. Their IC Title match this year was legitimately bad. When Dave Meltzer with his inflated ratings, only gives a 2018 NJPW main event match 3 stars, you know it’s trash.

    So Juice vs. Cody is headlining this show? Yeah this show isn’t selling out.

    By the way, how the hell do you post tweets and videos. I can only attach links. I’m on my phone by the way.
