I'm going to call bullshit on Conrad and believe that AEW money is backing Starrcast, since yeah, there's no way they would afford Taker otherwise.

All we know about Conrad is that he is in real estate.  So in order to afford he is doing, he is working on some really expensive houses or he is putting the "sponsor" in sponsorship's concerning Starrcast.    

By the way is it possible that Taker is doing this as his leverage to get into a WM match.  If Vince puts him into something would he back out

Okay - I am genuinely curious

Conrad is claiming that Starrcast is a separate entity from AEW (this is in the SI article announcing Taker) so I will take that at face value to ask this question

How is/would Starrcast be able to afford all the people they have? Do they have amazing sponsorship deals?

Since I have never listened to a single podcast affiliated with them ever I legit don't know but when Meltzer is saying Taker's rate is $25K a hour - they have to have a lot of money from somewhere????

(I assume Ric Flair is giving his son-in-law a deal)

 

Well, Conrad's day job is a loan shark. He strikes me as the kind of guy who has a lot of money, and also knows how to get his hands on a lot of money quickly.

That has to come in handy to bail out his Father-in-law.

Well okay never mind about that first sentence in the last post.  Thought he was in real estate.  Although watching the latest FMW podcasts, the term "loan sharks" has a interesting meaning

BTW - talk about conventions that have WAY too much money

Of note is that Starrcast is also advertising Arn Anderson and Shane Helms, both of whom are WWE employees.

I always got the impression that Conrad was a super nerd money mark who befriended some high profile folks like Flair and parlayed that into his podcast business.

I know he has been on Richard Deitsch's pod, so may have discussed his origin story there.

So, Monopoly events is paying their guys in Monopoly money to afford all them?

Virgil takes what he can get. 

I would think you can pay Virgil, Honky Tonk, and Janetty in pills and beer anyway

Conrad has talked about spending at least 100k on Flair memorabilia so he definitely has/comes from money.

Conrad runs a mortgage business. So, legal loan sharking.

He's definitely upper class, but I have no idea if he's rich or RICH

I doubt Flair would have let him hang around to begin with if he wasn't RICH rich.

Hopefully Conrad was smart enough to have Ric signed a pre-nup before getting married to his daughter.

Foley's been on BTE before. Marty tried to recruit him for Villain Club.

I am going to be infuriated if Park vs. Taker isn't the main event of Double or Nothing

Tony Kahn could pay Park crazy money to drop his mask.

I don't ever want to see LA Park unmasked. 

I'd like to see LA Park and El Hijo de LA Park in AEW. They'd be great additions for both singles and tag matches.

Who the hell wants to meet Jonathan Coachman?

I hope this leads to a Lonely Coach meme.
