  1. If you're an old school wrestler, it is in your DNA to fleece fans dumb enough to pay the price for a photograph. If the demand is there, he can charge whatever he wants. All the old boxers do it. Conor McGregor does it. Are we assuming Conor is broke as well? Cornering the market and raising the price is one of the most simple economic principles there is.
  2. @CreativeControl I once thought the idea of nihilism - that life is ultimately meaningless and that my opinion is just wasted energy and didn't really matter was solid science, but all it did was lead me to a life of unhappiness and degeneracy. I agree with the notion that if you do not have enough knowledge about a topic you should a) learn more about it and b) shut the fuck up and listen, but that isn't the case here. I will exercise my right to have an opinion, as long as I am justified in doing so.
  3. Tell that to Buddhists and various Asian cultures who continue to use them to this day. I figure in the west they will always be outlawed, that being said there has been a rise of tattooists that have exhibitions dedicated to taking them back. Anyway, getting back to the purpose of the thread.
  4. Banning so called ''Nazi iconography'' and symbols (ancient symbols that were almost entirely adopted by the NS, the SS symbol having origins in norse culture) is a slippery slope, one minute we're condemning outlaw bikers for appropriation, the next we're burning Hugo Boss garments and blowing up Volkswagens. Once we have established that whatever the Nazis said, did or created is taboo, then anything goes. It all has to go. That includes anything German. Using this precedent the German language is a symbol of Nazism and will have to be eliminated, and that goes for the German people too, after all their bloodline directly feeds into Nazi ideology through ancestry. Look, I'm not condoning Nazism, but ancient symbols have a long history of appropriation and manipulation for various causes. The swastika doesn't belong to Nazism. The swastika is an ancient religious icon. We must take back these ancient symbols and reinstate them among the public consciousness as symbols of peace and divinity, because ultimately, that's what they are. If Taker wore the hammer and sickle (the same iconography that represented the murderous Russian revolution, the purge that genocided millions of Ukrainians and Russians two decades before Nazis ran roughshod over Poland (in coalition with those same Russian Bolsheviks) the average joe on the street wouldn't care, because people have been conditioned to believe the hammer and sickle is a symbol of unity among the proletariat, despite ignoring the millions of people that perished under it's ideology. Slippery slope indeed.
  5. I've had that dude on ignore for a while. And my comment was true, every other comment of his is racial in nature, usually signalling in some way and taking petty shots at white people. I clearly struck a nerve, because I had the audacity to call him on his bullshit and he remembered it. Anyway I'm not trying to get banned, so I'll leave it.
  6. annnnd there it is, we're at Godwin's law.
  7. Lol. Where's the data that supports this?
  8. The thing is HHH went to bat for Dustin and convinced Vince to let him go when Vince was keen on keeping him if the reports are to believed - which makes Cody's entrance even more bizarre. That Lucha Bros/Bucks tag, man. The worst kind of Will Ospreay vs. Will Ospreay inside a steel Will Ospreay match. Talk about overkill. Hopefully when the Revival get there they beat some of the bad habits out of the Bucks. I can't remember who said the production was better than WWE's but you are mad. WWE is the gold standard, AEW are nowhere near.
  9. Jericho stumbling on the spinning back elbow while taking up MMA training to lose his belly and bitch tits and then deciding to use it as a new~! and fresh~! finishing move is ''how do you do, fellow kids?'' tier cringe.
  10. Cody has a very pronounced persecution complex, especially when his Dad is involved. He has acted as a gatekeeper for anything Dusty since his passing. I can't say I blame him. Without said persecution complex I doubt he'd be in the position he is right now, it's clearly what fuels him.
  11. Then how would you explain Flair appearing on Vince's show with the big Gold and going onto winning Vince's world title 5 months later in a match that housed a who's who of WWF royality (pun intended)? That's just one example of Vince rolling out the red carpet, I'm sure there's hundreds more
  12. Raw ratings have been on an uptick for the past 4 weeks which makes me believe people were suffering from chronic post-Mania fatigue and took a break. It's been proposed before but a simple remedy for the post-Mania slump would be having Raw after Mania be the season finale. Taking a month off and returning with the Superstar Shakeup in May.
  13. what the hell is Block 6? Cesaro should use something from the classical/romantic-era. Symphonie Fantastique perhaps. Cesaro conveys an air of badass-ness in appearance alone, and nothing is more badass than a piece of music depicting someone getting their head chopped off with a guillotine.
  14. Riddle/Cole [May 5th NXT], AJ/Rollins & the Men's ladder match [MITB] are somewhere in my top 10. Will revise later.
  15. I wasn't defending Lars, I was condemning Kalisto's behavior and double standards. Pile-on culture only causes more antagonism and division. If I see something that is glaringly unjust and contradictory, rest assured I'm going to call you out on your shit. Consider me the Tim Pool of the board. Anyway back to the fake fights.
  16. It's really indicative of your character that you're not susceptible to the concept of forgiveness or redemption. There is no honor or nobility in cheap shots. Glad we settled that.
  17. Cheap-shotting a coworker on national television and not offering a solution privately is a pussy move. Especially when the entire roster is breathing down Lars' neck and calling for his head. Lars has no window for retaliation. He has been fined, and Titus and other minorities called for calm after Lars apologized. So yes, Kalisto is a little bitch and should be fined 100 grand as well. Lars is done at this point, it doesn't matter if he apologized and offered some kind of rehabilitation and learning. This will continue to hang over his head like a dark cloud for the rest of his days.
  18. That just makes Kalisto look like a pussy to me. Let's see if taking advantage of a coworker in a vulnerable position results in the same kind of damnation Lars came under.
  19. did someone insinuate she was? Brock being money in the bank winner is quite a fresh option for him in theory. In execution we all know it's simply a catapult to get him and Rollins to Saudi. I'm hoping for something different though. He looked massive, clearly back on the gear and ready to commit to wrestling for the long haul. I think some of the bad energy towards Brock is self-inflicted on WWE's part, the booking of him being this lazy mercenary has completely killed him in the eyes of the viewer. They murdered their biggest star in order to get Roman over, and it backfired massively. No-one cares.
  20. Have it be the European and have WALTER murder fools all summer.
  21. Lacey's entrance with the money guns and Okada bills was tremendous too
