I must say that I rather like Dave figuratively boxing young Bix's ears. It's something that ought to be done every few months or so just on general principles.

Did you see the tweet that started all this?  Some dude tweeted at Meltzer that the Roderick vs Cedric match on 205 was great, and Dave's response was "You'd get to see matches that good every week if you watched someting besides WWE," which is douchey as hell.  Meltzer deserved to get dragged.

In case anyone missed it - the official announcement of WrestleMania 35 being at MetLife Stadium (NY/NJ) is being done today

All the other events will be at the Barclays Center (Brooklyn)

Mania will be April 7, 2019

I am interested to see where they do Summerslam then

“It’s the Brooklyn Bridge!”

I'm picturing Meltzer as Mr. Burns now. If someone disagrees with him on a match, he releases literal hounds who literally tear into the person. He also has dogs with bees in their mouth who shoot bees when they open their mouths to bark. 

Quite the coincidence you brought that up, since the greatest trolljob in Wrestling Observer Radio history was someone once asking him in the mailbag "Bret Hart once bought a mansion from Monty Burns, do you know if he ever sold it back to him?"  And Dave legit spent about two minutes trying to answer it.  "I know he bought property in Calgary...I don't remember him ever buying anything in the United States..."

The correct answer is, yes, he was able to buy it back.

Chyna is pretty obvious, that would be weird without the porn and early death. Sherri died young and that is near the top of WWE sins. . 

It's okay if you die of "natural" causes like Eddie or Warrior but dying young and courtesy of drugs, that's a WWE no-go.

Also, those images from that porn wrestling spoof would come up and I doubt Snickers would be understanding of her state and situation. 

Twix, I feel, would be cool about it.

Losing a shoot boxing match to 46 year-old out-of-shape Joey Buttafuoco in front of millions pretty much ended her too.

I thought Bix wrote at the Observer?  

Deadspin, yeah. Not the Observer, I don't think.

He used to, but I believe he's been gone for quite awhile. Maybe they didn't pay him well, who knows.

Left Twix would. Not so sure about those right Twix guys.

Worst case scenario naming it after Burke:

"Who's Mildred Burke?"

"No fucking idea"

"Oh".

Nobody's gonna boycott the show because they don't know who the women's battle royal is named after. Nobody's gonna be like "I just can't get invested in this match since I don't know who Mildred Burke is".

I’d have thought the greatest was “the gay community?”, given it still gets referenced all these years later.

Was that trolling though? Seemed like an earnestly asked question that Dave reacted really poorly to.

IIRC, it was something that had been set-up ahead of time in the F4W chat that was going on during the radio show. But it was 10+ years ago.

God the MSG show looks all sorts of... weird

Nakamura beat Owens via DQ

- Was supposed to be a tag of Nakamura/AJ vs. KO/Sami. They had KO and Sami jump them from the crowd and AJ did an "injury" angle. AJ came back at the end to make the save for Nakamura. So AJ didn't wrestle

Cedric Alexander over Drew Gulak

Asuka beat Mandy Rose

Bray Wyatt beat Matt Hardy

- Bray has suddenly started winning all the house show matches. I am sure that will make up for all the TV losses

Bar won a 4-way over New Day, Gallows and Anderson and Titus Worldwide

- New Day did the job because SDL losing is more important than Titus losing again I guess...

Brock beat Kane and Braun

- Went 5 1/2 so I guess they didn't want to piss off the MSG crowd

Alexa beat Sasha and Bayley in a triple threat

- Sasha did the job. Nia came out after and beat up Alexa and Mickie James. Did not wrestle. More on Bayley in a second

John Cena and Nikki Bella beat Elias and Sonya Deville

- Up until the day of the show - this had been advertised as Elias/Bayley (which at least made sense MMC wise). In fact - I am pretty sure Bayley tweeted about the match earlier in the day.

Reigns/Balor/Rollins beat Miz and The Miztourage

- Miz ate the fall because of course he did

Surprised they didn’t order the Spider Lady match added to the list.

I don't know.  WWE could come off looking really bad if they did a show the day before, and then an indie show did a similar or better crowd the next day.  I don't even know numbers, does WWE even draw 10,000 at a non-televised house show?  I assume they'd take the "pretend it's not happening" approach.

A recent Sunday SmackDown house show at oracle arena in Oakland drew 3200.
