All kidding aside, I’d always understood it as “sign this contract quickly, here and now, without your attorney looking it over...” 

She balked, they took it off her ASAP. No?

So Dan Spivey is the Buzzard?  What is his connection with Bray? I know he teamed with His Pops in WWE.

I believe Bray befriended Spivey when he came up with the ode to Waylon Mercy version of Bray Wyatt.

in the interest of being accurate instead of glib, yes, the specifics of Richter's situation were different in that her contract was up while she was still champion, and she wanted to review her new contract with her lawyer before signing, while Vince (surprise!) didn't want her to do so (gee I wonder why).  IIRC he even tried to get her to sign without reading on the way to the ring at one point.

Obviously after this Richter wasn't in a mood to re-sign, period.

True, but how many matches did Flair win with the figure four? Not many.

Carmella vs Ba*ley is now for Smackdown, instead of Supershowdown.

Potential Elimination Chamber participants spoilers:

 

For the past two years, the Men's Elimination Chamber participants wrestle a Gauntlet TV match with Seth Rollins going an hour in 2018 and Kofi Kingston last year. I REALLY want Daniel Bryan to be the third. 60 minutes and over of Daniel Bryan please.

I disagree. He won hundreds of studio matches with it.

What the fuck is that even supposed to be doing then?

cranking the neck.  It's still shit looking, and is a big reason I only like Sanada when he goes against ZSJ.

Regarding the LA Mania

Per Meltzer on the radio this morning - the WWE actually wanted to do the LA Mania in 2022 because the Super Bowl will be Feb 2022 there and the WWE wants to go after the Super Bowl so they can do their usual trick of claiming a larger crowd.

However, LA wanted them in 2021 because they want to use Mania as their test run for hosting the Super Bowl.

Clearly LA (a few extra dollars) won that

I read that Viceland tv wants NJPW on their Channel 

NJPW with 2 Chainz and Damian Abraham on commentary, and all the wrestlers smoking up, is really going to be something else.

Damien better wear a gasmask then (though they would probably steal it and hook it up to a bong)

You'd think Hoodslam would be a natural fit. I had a feeling they were going to get into wrestling after those documentaries were so well received, but I never would've guessed it could end up being NJPW.

You have to remember that Vice is of two minds. One is the "for the culture", sex drugs and music, stuff for stoned 20-somethings mindset, and the other is wanting to be a serious news and information network mindset. New Japan is classy enough to bridge the gap between those two, perhaps. That makes it quite a fit when you think about it.

It does make sense when you put it that way.. I lost the channel when I cut the cord, and never sought it out after Desus and Mero moved to Showtime so I'm not as up on their current programming. I thought that stuff was mainly contained to their online stuff and the news show on HBO. If there's more of that crossover nowadays I could see it

They've been pimping their (Emmy-nominated) news programming a lot recently, though most of it is still drug and food shows. They show a lot of Intervention re-runs, Always Sunny re-runs, and are showing more movies recently too.

Hey it's not like they replaced Lucha Underground with a reality show about Tacos.  So they'll always have one up on El Rey.

A reality show about tacos would get more eyeballs than wrestling.

We will see because that is a real scenario that is actually happening on El Rey.

Is it the one with two guys going around the country eating tacos?  If so I checked it before cutting the cord.  It's a neat idea and man did it have me hungry for good tacos at times.  But I would think it put maybe about the same eyeballs onto it as it did wrestling, maybe a tad less.

Shit, now I want tacos.
