  1. Is it possible that the way it goes now is 1) use AEW paranoia to negotiate a new contract with a disproportionately generous downside guarantee 2) ask for your release on twitter 3) receive the terrible punishment of being sent home to sit out your contract 4) sit at home getting paid decent money doing nothing 5) hope vince forgets you exist rather than hauling you back in to tank his own product with a thinly-veiled punishment storyline
  2. There is definitely a post-Tr*mp amplification of the idea that all journalists are untrustworthy shit-stirrers, but declining faith in media institutions is an ongoing thing across the board; this is not without good reason but as noted above people often aren't good judges of which bits are credible, and reflexively throw the baby out with the bathwater Also everywhere has fucking comments and have your say shit on it now so every confused nudnik gets to indulge their need to disagree with the story underneath it for some reason
  3. There does seem to be a block of young wrestling fans who have somehow become convinced that rather than having good sources but being eccentric and frequently sloppy and naive, Meltzer literally has no inside knowledge at all and anything he's right about is a fluke consequent to him throwing a lot of shit at the wall and some of it sticking There is also maybe some defensive resentment about him criticising or bringing negative attention on wrestlers they like, an egregious violation of the sacred rule that annoying nerds should be allowed to Enjoy Things without being troubled by becoming aware of the existence of criticism of them Dunno if the proliferation of shit-tier wrestling news websites whose content is all aggregated re-reporting has muddied the water a bit
  4. Why is this not still a thing? I would have thought that even Vince would have immediately recognised that creepy, sociopathic mob boss Daniel Bryan was incredible TV Unrelated query: you know that incredibly unnerving montage of Roddy Piper promos that was cut to just be all the sharp intakes of breath and no actual words? Has anybody ever done a similar supercut of every time HHH said "UH" at the end of a word? I need it to upset my wife with
  5. That image of Rock looks like they accidentally motion scanned Al Pacino having a heart attack and transplanted it onto Rocky's face
  6. Springboard inverted atomic drop! Double team inverted atomic drop! Inverted atomic drops for everybody! Inverted atomic drop party!
  7. Yeah, all the Charlotte '17 ones are just gonna be alternate attires for the same character, there are presumably only going to be four actual character variants so they can have different movesets There were 6 Bryan variants as their own character last year, but he's changed his entrance theme and moveset more than Charlotte has
  8. "All of the character select models now stand straight staring ahead as if lobotomised" is an underrated weird wwe 2k uh symptom of the past couple of years
  9. They've been patching that bug out then letting it reappear again for a couple of years now I think Lmao at the ref scratching his ass The pin counts that do happen suck too though, they're slow and uneven and they don't have a satisfying mat thwack and the ref voice sample is thin and disembodied sounding and the crowd doesn't pop for near falls or chant along in time properly Re-record your voice samples of people shouting out numbers 2k! Fire Pro can do a decent 1-2-OHHH you should too!
  10. The actual new moves mostly look great! There's even an Okada-y tilt a whirl tombstone! I will talk shit about this then end up buying it when it's pathetically cheap and fastidiouly update the bad movesets of downloaded edits, without ever remembering to actually wrestle a match!
  11. Lmao at their cynical preorder bonus being a load of thrown together gaga shit headed by a character that ended up DOA because Vince can't book and Bray can't wrestle This looks...remarkably bad, and most of the additions seem like they were made by people who don't like wrestling, to appeal to youtubers who don't like wrestling And they took out the ability to make the AEW title, which was probably more out of ineptitude than spite Can u imagine the sheer scale of the day one bugs
  12. And Then The Bell Had To Ring: the Bray Wyatt Story
  13. That Club vs Raiders tag opener was a really well done sprint, goddamn
  14. Mounted triangles are horrific to be in imo, the finger breaking just pushes it over the edge, it's a morale submission, tapping out is just something the body does when it doesn't want to be in the ring with Pete Dunne any more I do wish he was still allowed to actually bite fingers though, it marked him out as more deranged, rather than having to cop the lesser act of Marty Scurll
  15. Lmao yeah. Also acting like this Olympic-level grapplefuck machine has been getting bullied his whole life for being 5'8 or whatever
