NOVEMBER 2019 WRESTLING CHAT.


Recommended Posts

It actually appears that it didn't change anything (like it is still ending the original time)

All it appears to be doing is saying the WWE will definitely do 2 shows a year (which they obviously were already doing but now guarantees it - since on the investors call last week it was said "Oh we might not do 2 shows a year")

It’s just PR for the investors who found out about Saudi’s being late on payments. Plus the wrestlers getting fucked over. Also other strange activities around the stocks.

Heck it was Twitted out by the PR department.

The thing I don't understand about the whole Saudi plane deal is, they did a show in June and didn't get paid for it (until October). So they had the next show scheduled for the end of October, and Vince decided to hold them up for money (to make sure they'd be paid this time) on the day of the show, right before it started. If you were going to engage in that type of brinkmanship, why the hell would you wait until your whole crew was in the country? Message them from the airport and say "Pay now or we aren't coming, Pal!"

It's a textbook example of why ultimatums only work when issued from a position of power, isn't it? Vince placed his company in a position of weakness, tried to flex his muscles, and his labour force were detained against their will because of it.

Fuck this company.

That will teach those fuckers to think about unions. 

Next Crown Jewel show will have a 60 man battle royal and the first 10 eliminated have to be sent home in the luggage bin

Cain Velazquez becoming a locker room favorite purely because he was stuck in this spot is a pretty amazing swing from the possibility that he could have been resented for instantly jumping into a spot and getting his deal with a known knee injury

CMLL does weird lighting for their Dia de Muertes shows (this past weekend this year) and it’s also a pain. 

it's kinda cool, at first, to have people diving into a layer of fog.. but that's probably not safe either

Mauro has been calling the Full Sail Live venue the NXT Arena for a while on commentary now, so that maybe a long term plan indication.

Anyway, I'd go to this on Friday, but I already have tickets to MLW on Saturday and may hit up the USA Pro event afterwards.

also, whenever Velasquez comes back, he should be the Superfriend who makes saves for imperiled babyfaces because he's looking at it from the real world POV and not the WWE POV where nobody ever tries to save faces.

He also needs a mouthpiece.

People should get #StoogeRollins trending. Just a friendly suggestion.

Agreed...

There was a meeting at about 3 p.m. today at NYCB Live with Vince McMahon and the Raw crew.  We don't have details of what transpired at this time but these are some things we've been told. The company blamed talent speculation for causing a problem, the talent was told the flight issues were all mechanical and nothing more, and Seth Rollins attempted to do a rah-rah speech while telling people to keep things like this off social media in the future.

Now we'll see who is for real on the "never going back" stuff 

I'm with you on that one. There's really no precedent for this kind of circumstance, the closest example I could think of would be RVD refusing to work Tribute to the Troops in Iraq but thats obviously way different for many reasons

Did bischoff make people work the North Korea shows? 

Outside of Flair, I thought most of the guys who went had contacts to New Japan. So it was more on them instead of Bischoff,  but I could be wrong
