[SEPT 2019] WRESTLING DISCUSSION

Recommended Posts

IIRC, Meltzer said that Austin generally pops the rating when he's on but he had some doubts it would be a big bounce this time because of MNF and his other recent appearance(s).

Why would Austin pop a rating in 2019? He hasn't wrestled in years, and it's not as if him making an appearance is that rare.

He popped a rating a couple months ago it seemed.

It's also possible that he popped the rating two months ago and everyone that tuned in that time saw they did jack shit with him and the rest of that show was damn near a complete nothing show otherwise so those people didnt come back this time.

I think they used Austin well last night but I'm generally tired of legends and the way they're used creatively.   But I don't know if WWE knows how to do anything else,  they've been trying to live off The Attitude Era for the better part of 15 years.

I thought they advertised Rey vs. Metalik and Cedric vs. AJ Styles also?   But Austin was heavily advertised..   It's just not a great number considering they won't have SCSA around now. 

You're right about Rey/Metalik. I had forgotten about it was announced though I only recall hearing a day or so in advance. I don't recall Cedric/AJ being advertised a all though I could have missed it.

Austin also opened the show last night, so it's not like anyone who tuned in to see him had to stick around past the opening segment.

I want to say the last time RAW's third hour crashed like that, it was with Seth/AJ in the main event right after the Superstar Shakeup. It was from that that we got the Wild Card rule.

Yes but the opening segment was about 20 minutes so I think the first hour would be way higher if people tuned in,  got their Austin fix and dipped.  It appears that most people didn't bother to tune in at all.

I think that's the YouTube/Dailymotion tier. But in the network's defense they've been A LOT better adding stuff from other promotions lately.  Hidden Gems folder is awesome and probably worth the $9.99 by itself. 

I hope they fix the issues before Clash of Champions,  I'm in no mood to watch a spinning wheel all night. 

Spin the wheel, make the deal.

am I the only one who LOVED that gimmick?  I used to pause the tape so I could try and read all the match possibilities.

I think it would have been a good idea for a Clash, but not a PPV. Better to have known matches if you are getting people to spend money. Same with Lethal Lottery.

What's the tier where we get the WCW C-shows I've been waiting 5 years for

If WCW Saturday Night and Worldwide from 97 on shows up, I'll resubscribe in a heartbeat.

What you really want is WCW Worldwide 1993, International version. The commentary team is Solie and Regal. It's fantastic having Lord Steven call his own matches, making excuses for every reversal the jobber gets.

And the Lance Russell/Freebirds Pro. Maybe in 20 years.

Is ANY of this on YouTube or Dailymotion?

I believe not. There might be a few hours of it on VHS in my loft, but... there might not. Or it could have decayed to the point of unwatchability. Or I could have taped over it years ago.

We will start a small collection for you to find and convert it.

Per PWI - Kurt Angle's new role with the WWE is producer on the RAW side

He apparently has been shadowing folks on and off the last few months and the MSG show was one of his first (or his first) producing the show

McKenzie Mitchell announced that she has been hired by the WWE to be an on-air host

Some of you might remember her when she had a similar role on Impact

This is all negative karma for the Kurty section.

It's to counter HBK on NXT telling the kids to oversell.
