Didn't OWE relocate from China entirely? I vaguely remember reading something about it. China might not be the best place to start wrestling promotion despite huge population.

Cambodia I believe

Vince/WWE of the last 10 years hasn't met an amazing talent he couldn't completely fuck up yet.

He failed to completely fuck up Jericho. Although obviously he first met him way more than ten years ago.

I don't know why this is making me giggle so

 

I guess they saw the numbers with the over-50 crowd and decided to go for it.

As said above yes, to Cambodia. Somebody reposted on here earlier an unidentified talent's Twitter post complaining about OWE and Cima in particular, saying the talent weren't paid and were put in debt to OWE, that China was entirely a bust, Cima was a racist that hated Occidental wrestlers, etc. It was scathing.

AHAHAHAHA I’m listening to the Meltzer interview, and Fumi Saito said that Rossy almost sold Stardom to the WWE because they said they were willing to put him in the Hall of Fame. He ultimately went with Bushiroad because, like the WWF buying WCW, they had no fucking plans to do anything with it anytime soon.

WWE is gonna need to figure out which puro legends (that aren’t already in the WWE HOF) own vanity feds. Find one of them who’ll be willing to turn their feds into 2000s OVW for NXT Japan trainees.

Brock as world champ while Roman chases the IC belt -- We've literally made no progress in two years. 

 

Hey Fox, you got BROCK LESNAR on your show!!

Also, Brock Lesnar is not scheduled to appear.

Oh, he tried, Jericho had some tough times those first few years in WWE.

What's the deal with Sami as a full time manager? Am I ever going to get my Roman vs Sami 1v1?

This really hasn't happened on tv yet? That is surprising. Personally I'm stoked for Roman vs. Shinsuke. I've been wanting that match since the faceoff in the Royal Rumble.

Their only one on one stuff was three matches on a house show loop. But that was last month, so it may be on TV in the near future.

Closest we got on TV was a triple threat match with Balor, which was predictably very good.

Yeah, that was 4 years ago.  If you told anyone in 2015 what has happened in the last 4 years, they'd lock you in a cage and throw away the key.  

 

Funnily enough, I was looking back through some of the older posts in the WWE area, and I scrolled through those NXT big show and multi-month threads from 2015 and 2016 and, wow, that promotion was so hot that it made us believe again. 

The only solace that I have is that I was not alone in thinking that Bayley and Sami were cannot-miss babyfaces. 

And then in this thread maybe a week ago, I saw a picture of Dark Bayley with a new hairdo and dark eyeliner under her face looking all mean, and all I can say is that if she didn't change her look specifically to do the Crow Sting storyline and she's just a typical heel now, uh, FUCK THAT. And I don't even watch anymore, but I actually feel some kinda way about that.

Sami, though... Fuck... He has his moments as a heel, but it’s only meme stuff. Nothing that sticks at all.

I really like his OTT ring work as a heel. Like most on the roster, it's a shame he hasn't had much to do. But he's more than just meme-able.

That smackdown card looks exactly like when they last split the rosters a few years back. Nothing has changed at all. Same people in the same roles they've always been in. 

Nobody beyond Shield guys and Brock have emerged as a fresh new star.

I remember people saying this and thinking they were insane cause to normal people Sami Zayn and Bayley are just weird dorks.

yeah, I get the feeling there's some people who watch WWE programming who'd feel weird inside if they were consistently happy after shows

aye, there's the rub, though; wrestling fans are weird dorks.

the audience loves to see in the hero a bit of themselves.

Take this for what it is worth - from the new WON that was just posted

Quote

“Eric had absolutely no vision, and once we were headed into FOX, everything was falling through the cracks,” said one WWE official. “He messed up multiple times with FOX. Eric also had no stamina for the rigors of the job.”
