  1. For anyone curious, found the article I was referencing, says he made $30,000 a year in revenue which was probably mostly profit. Oddly, no mention of the fact that it wasn't legal haha
  2. Golden Boy Tapes was quite a thing, he was the biggest dealer (besides Lynch, who is somehow still trading underground as far as I know). Years later I found an interview he gave (after he had shut down the site) where he said how much money he made and it was some stupid amount. I don't want to misquote it since I don't remember the exact figure, but tens of thousands a year. Which makes sense, I mean a blank tape is a buck in bulk and he was selling tapes for $20+. I had a deal with him for awhile on my old site where he sent me free tapes and I'd promote his website, same with IVP. Felt like a fair trade at the time.
  3. The old selling/trading thread from the old days of DVDVR had to go for legal reasons (probably) but for awhile it was a good resource, I made quite a few purchases from people back in the day. That one dude did those compilation DVDs (Bootscrapes, if I recall) that were solid. That was I guess ten years ago. I'm old. I have forgotten the tape trading site I used back in 2004 - 2007 but it was ugly as sin, old school forum, back when tapes were $20. Kids these days don't know how good they have it smh
  4. I guess in that way him and Hogan were cut from the same cloth, from all accounts Hogan was always great with fans not just at meet and greets but literally anywhere you caught him, but well... his selfishness and politicking are well documented.
  5. I mean that was kinda Phil's point, right? Aside from the gobs and gobs of money he got to switch over, not claiming he is a virtuous person or anything. The "non-profit" PGA Association suddenly found $20 million to add to purses, what a coincidence. I don't pretend to understand all the finances of the PGA but its a little suspect that now they suddenly figure out a way to raise the purses right as people are leaving. The PGA will no doubt win this "war" but a little competition never hurt anyone, especially if it improves things for those on the Tour.
  6. I don't think it'll sell as well as their normal PPVs as they just had one recently and for the more casual fan (I don't like the term, but you know what I mean) there probably is not as much appeal here. But I can understand why they didn't drop the price as they don't want to set that precedent, plus it would be them acknowledging its a "B" PPV which they wouldn't do.
  7. The main issue with Okada not appearing is simply that he was name-dropped/challenged on a AEW program in the lead-up to the PPV. I don't think him doing a three-day business trip while his wife is pregnant is a huge deal but if it is to him that's perfectly understandable (even though that is something we are just making up as a reason), but if that is true then he shouldn't have been mentioned at all. I mean they haven't mentioned Naito, Ibushi, this month etc. for a reason - they aren't appearing and were never scheduled. So I don't think people expecting Okada to have a match were unrealistic since he was mentioned in an AEW ring by an AEW wrestler this month while promoting the upcoming event. This show will be a pass for me to order, I already told my brother (he is a bigger AEW fan than I am) and he's a bit sad since I've ordered all of them the last two years and we've watched them together. There just isn't enough sizzle there to justify the $50 price tag for me, plus I am moving this weekend so I have enough going on already. I hope its a great show though, sometimes the ones on paper that maybe don't look as great as you were hoping end up being the better events anyway.
  8. From what I remember from what he is remembering, there was a report that they offered settlements and some accepted the dollar amount (not all) but the NDA was so strict that they wouldn't agree to the final terms. So either they really really upped the money (very possible and likely) or they made the NDA softer (also possible, or they just gave so much money they didn't care). I am assuming four either are refusing to settle period or are holding up for more money. Still, getting the number from 24 to 4 before the suspension is announced puts some pressure on NFL to make it shorter so I can understand on his attorney's side why they pushed to get as many settled as possible even if it wasn't all of them.
  9. I'm 38 and still love any wrestler who wears a mask or has facepaint.
  10. I am only counting them as they made the decision to just stop, they could have announced a retirement show and just opted not to.
  11. Not for a literal year, I wouldn't say it is "typical" to announce show days six months in advance along the long road to retirement. Its what the showmen do for sure, which Muto definitely is. More Tenryu or Inoki, less Kawada or Chono. You can't count Onita since he has had a dozen of them, the ultimate showman.
  12. I have to laugh since just a few weeks ago I said that when Muto retires he will let you know exactly when and make as much money as possible in the process, and here he is.
  13. I ate so much Papa Johns in college that I'll always have fond memories of their pizza, but I haven't had it in probably 15 years. Now we just use the more localized pizza places, I can't remember the last time I had pizza from a national chain. Still, y'all a bunch of snobs, nothing wrong with some cheap and fast pizza sometimes.
  14. Sometimes I forget I am special. I also never use it (aside from the test above), I always just upload stuff to imgur and paste the link in the post. Trying to save DEAN on some server costs.
  15. I hate stuff like this so much haha its like having Kojima making a big announcement out of him just saying he will start a new game soon. Thanks for the ten year plan, the world may be melted before Fallout 5 comes out.
