AUGUST 2018 WRESTLING DISCUSSION.

Recommended Posts

Sasha is awesome. It's ashame she's never gotten a title reign lasting more than a day. I certainly think a Sasha/Ronda program would be better than Ronda/Alexa.

Count me in with the fuck Komen crowd. If WWE wants to do something charitable, they should give an option to make a donation to the charity of your choice if you wanted to. I would gladly support that and donate to St. Jude. If that were the case, I'd probably buy tickets and let St. Jude give the tickets out. I've mentioned here before, but childhood cancer has affected my family, and thus is an important cause for us.

Fuck Komen, Wounded Warrior, and any charity that pays huge salaries to their CEO, holds lavish parties, and puts far more money into #branding than into the actual cause.  The American Cancer Society and Disabled American Veterans ain't doing that shit.

I have a tough time ragging on Komen. Last year when my wife was diagnosed with cancer, they paid the bills for all her testing that lead to a diagnosis and treatment plan. I certainly understand others issue with them, and a mandatory donation is ludicrous though.

Rosenberg was poking her about the alleged “heat” between her and Alexa. He then asked her if there was accuracy to that and she just said that she thinks that she’s really good at her job as a wrestler. He then asked her if she wanted to do more work with Alexa and she bluntly said “not really”. She said that if the company wanted her to work with Alexa, she would do it because she’s very good at her job. Rosenberg then asked if there was more to be told with the story and Sasha once again bluntly said “no”.

Basically the big story is that Sasha admitted that she has no interest in working with Alexa again.

I don't think any wrestler has been as good as she thinks she is.

Sasha really feels like one of those potential stars that needs to just go away & grow up a little bit.

I understand it's different for women who want to try and work for WWE into their late 30's but a couple of years working the UK or Japan, away from the 50/50 booking & all the seemingly frustrating directions creative want to take her could really help.

I don't remember who it was, but I saw someone in a shoot interview saying Prince Devitt went to WWE because he'd already done his art-work, and now it's time to do his money-work. Sasha's trying to make art in a place that is not conducive to artistry.

That's too bad, I thought Sasha and Alexa worked great together as opponents and delivered some of both's best stuff last year, especially at SummerSlam and the following week.

There isn’t a decent alternative for women’s wrestlers like there are for men.  Sasha Banks can’t just pull a Cody Rhodes and leave WWE and make even more money and become a bigger star. There is no NJPW for her to go to. The ROH Women’s Division is a joke. Impact probably wouldn’t be able to pay her 20% of what she’s making in WWE. Joshi isn’t exactly a big market right now at all. It’s extremely niche. There’s a reason why every time WWE comes calling for a Stardom wrestler, they go.

I don’t see Sasha leaving solely because the gap in the money she could make would simply be too much. There just isn’t a market for female wrestlers on the indies and Japan like there is for male wrestlers.

Sasha would be terrible on the indies. A big aspect of doing well on the indies is building a connection with fans. While Sasha has proven unless you are famous, she holds fans in contempt. Yes her and Rollins humiliating that guy on Twitter put a hair up my ass. I don't care about refusing pics or whatever. But going out of your way to humiliate someone is uncalled for. 

Sasha is booked better than most of the roster. She is always in a featured spot, in spite of a crappy attitude and publicly insulting the company.

Wait, is this Susan G Koman donation thing new?  I don't remember this being done in past years.  I mean, if you're going to make people donate to a "charity" then it should be for one that actually does something positive with the money donated.

So basically regarding SGK like Fale said "Fuck 'em!"

It is new to me. I've never seen anything like it and I go to a lot of shows.

What's this about? What guy? She made it clear she doesnt like be stalked at hotels and airports and she's a woman... people need to let her live. Anything could happen. She treats fans who are respectful with respect. All over IG you can see her being cool to her fans.

Sasha comes across as disingenuous a lot of the time, throwing co-workers under the bus on a public platform aside, there have been instances of her being less than cordial with fans. Hogan is always in Hogan mode in public, so is Cena, so is HHH. The best never turn down a fan.There was a reason she excelled and was the best heel in the business in NXT. She got to be herself.

A guy sent her a tweet thanking her for taking a pic with her at the airport. She (and Seth Rollins) proceeded to publicly humiliate him. Which if they did not to take the pic, then don't take it. If they did not want to say "You're welcome", then just don't reply. Doing that is a terrible way to treat a person. Especially a person who obviously has a crappy life. 

There were a few other things with Sasha. But nothing like that. 

Edit: Wanted to add guy deleted his account after fans and roster members piled on. Which reminds me of why I don't feel bad for fans or roster members when the company shits on them.

So, shortly after Mania, when RAW ran Philly, The Hardy's and I were going through TSA and in the airport terminal at the same time.  Just Matt and Jeff.  Now, I usually go by "I don't bother wrestlers when doing mundane shit like going through the airport or fishing with their old man or anything like that, but that's me.  However, the TSA guys, and a few people in the terminal noticed, and did the autograph and pic thing.  

 

Neither turned them down, shit on them, looked annoyed, and were nothing but cordial to people that did approach them, and since I follow both on Twitter, I didn't see either pile onto people that do tweet them thanks for the pics.  

 

Moral of the story, if you don't want to be bugged going through airports or whatever, then maybe this isn't the life for you.

Adults who request phone pictures with their favorite wrestlers are kinda creepy. You're not nine, dude. Just be like, "Cool, it's Sasha Banks" and keep it moving.

I disagree with all of that. Sasha is a 120lb woman. You cannot compare her to the hardys who can clearly take care of themselves. 

That guy in the picture actually has a ton of pics with other wrestlers in airports too. You know why?

Because he shows up at 2am when he figures out when and where they are landing and stalks them.

To me that is weird.. and if other wrestlers are fine with it, cool but I cannot blame Sasha for calling him out. And Sasha is on social media 24/7 she is well aware of who those types of fans are.

You can look at the IG discovery page and I see Sasha show up there quite a bit with fans and she is all smiles and hugs. You take a few incidents and blow it up and forget about the thousands of positive fan interactions she has had. That's why this whole conversation sucks, you are being very selective and ignoring everything else.

Sasha stinks. She should quit. But it shouldn't be because of airport creeps. It should be the traditional route: years of rejection and failure until she's spit out the bottom of the porn industry.

That's nice.. what the fuck is wrong with some of you?

Yes but that's not going to be good for anyone. There are some here like @Victator who truly believe it. 

How dare that woman not take a picture with me after I stalked her flight times? Give me a break.
