Djarum Blacks bring me back... When you could still smoke at venues and clubs (which I didn't do) there was always that point in the night where you'd smell a clove being smoked. Almost as essential to the HC/punk experience as Denny's on the way home. 

Yes! You nailed it exactly.

So this month, AEW has a not-Wargames double ring cage match on the 25th, WWE has the Elimination Chamber event on the 8th featuring like three Elimination Chamber matches, NXT has two Cage Matches on Wednesday the 4th, and Impact has Lockdown (an all cage match show) on Impact Plus on the 28th.

By April Fool's Day, we're going to be sick of chain link.

3 Elimination Chamber matches? I thought the WWE title match was already set as well as the Raw Women's title? Why is there still 3 Elimination Chamber matches when most of the main title matches for Mania is set?

The last red herring before the reveal, I guess? For those that don’t remember, a disgruntled Brodie Lee/Luke Harper would literally just tweet out “It’s *Insert the day it was*” for days, and nothing else.

Random question that popped into my head, maybe not quite old school enough for the old school thread, so apologies if this is in the wrong place:

I remember reading years ago, could be bullshit, that there was some sort of alternate idea for Invasion (or another WWF angle sometime around the WCW buyout anyway) that was apparently good enough to where the reporter (I won't say Meltzer because I don't remember 100%) didn't want to reveal it publically in case it was ever used.

Does anyone know/remember what I'm talking about, and if so, was it ever revealed what that idea was supposed to be?

Are you talking about WWF/WCW Nitro show advertised for Red Deer, Alberta? I'm don't remember if that was before Invasion started, during or towards the end.

I remember someone posting a detailed outline here and other places about the "lockdown" concept where WCW guys had to be at the arena 24 hours before showtime and then the drama happens whil they're "locked down." Might be a fun concept now that WWE has nXt/PC.

 

The other I rememebr reading in a magazine at the time was a completely independent WCW, owned by Titan, where the tops stars were expected to be Booker T, RVD, Test, and DDP.

No not that, there were a bunch of WCW dates that went out prematurely I think around May-June '01

I remember the Lockdown thing but that was a fan-made "pitch" and nothing official

You're from New Jersey. White Castle after the show!

We remain committed to hosting WrestleMania at Raymond James Stadium on Sunday, April 5, and like other entertainment properties in the U.S., there are currently no plans to cancel or postpone our upcoming events.

Sooner the better this bullshit is like the corona virus of the board spreading wherever Patient 0 posts(LoneWolf). 

No, the corona virus is at least interesting.  This is speculation on the leader of a group of jobbers.  This is like endless speculation on the mystery leader of The Social Outcasts.
