  1. You admitted like a week ago you're Aaron Rodgers' age and you're out here calling people simp like you're 11 while carrying on your hate mastubation gimmick account so I think I'll take the hardest of passes.

  2. The fact that there are plenty of people who don't see the potential joy and greatness in AEW signing a bunch of extremely talented people, and instead automatically think to the failings of TNA and late WCW, really gives you an idea about how brutal it is to even be a wrestling fan, just a bunch of glass half empty motherfuckers always expecting the worst

  11. I know I'm likely gonna be in the minority, but I actually really dig Kenny and Don as '80s ski movie heels. The interrupting with the shitty little golf cart horn cracked me up.

  21. I don't disagree with anything you posted. But a company that had record profits during a pandemic, and enters into one sided contracts with talent that don't have the same rights as the employer... hear me out... shouldn't be firing anyone (without cause). In what world do we have people defending WWE for firing people before their contracts are up? Everything you wrote is valid. But can't that all be true and they keep their word on the agreements they sign? In 2004 Brock didn't want to be a wrestler anymore. He couldn't just send WWE an early release and say hey we're no longer in a contract anymore. So why does WWE get a pass for doing this? Pay everyone until the end of the agreement and keep your word. Clean house at the end of contracts. Not in the middle. Or if they want to keep this practice, make it fair. Allow the wrestlers to terminate the deals when they aren't happy. This "let's keep everyone as unhappy as possible by firing the happy people mid-contract, while also holding unhappy people that want out hostage" shit... is fucking bullshit. But I digress...

  28. I am but one LGBTQ person, but... I thought it was a nice gesture and appreciated. I also think if a LGBTQ person had done it, you would have gotten people complaining that their sexuality/gender was now part of their gimmick (either a well-meaning complaint, as in "they're more than just being LGBTQ", or a thick-headed complaint about it being "shoved down their throat". That said... LGBTQ folks do little things that y'all straight/cis folks don't pick up on all the time. And we giggle about it in our meetings when we plan our next agendas. Oh yes we do. ... I've said too much.

  33. I enjoy when I get to read threads like this in one go. My jaw dropped at that first post, and by the end (so far, here at p. 12) my eyes have glazed over at the multiples arguments and reiterations of the same facts. As one who doesn't watch WWE, it is great to maybe see some extraordinary talents in a different and more productive setting. Two things w/o quoting - I'm still seething that someone compared Buddy Murphy (p6), whom I have been digging since his NXT tag team days and would be an asset to any fed to Kenny Omega whom has never interested me in the least and his whole gimmick seems to be someone cosplaying a pro wrestler (skillfully, I admit). And comparing the IP value of a potential WWE sale to that of the recent MGM purchase (p9)? It is laughable to think that the IP of WWE even compares in value to the MGM film library in Quantity, importance or money generating ability. Don't get me wrong: I personally I love me some Ben Hur but I am far more likely to seek ot Mid Altlantic Wrestling episode #239, y'know. still reading, RAF p.s. - Bodhisattva bless thee interWeb & thee DVDVR.

  34. I'm feeling some surly and belligerent feelings regarding these Bad Opinions on the Value of Good Jobbers. Any company in the world should be humbled by the presence of a Peter Avalon losing a dualing losing-streak angle so valiantly. Leading his cadre of cads into bad results against bad mamma jammas. Michael Nakazawa should not be on Dynamite, but he played American football because his dad played American football and thus speaks good enough English to translate Kenny's Japanese into perfect Japanese. Marko Stunt exists as a hype man and human projectile. If you're bitching as a fan wants to see a roster of nothing but potential champions, that's Your Prerogative. You don't need my permission to make your own decisions. If you're telling me why your ideas are good and why AEW's are bad? Stop Humpin' Around.

  36. I hate this narrative. It's lazy. And it's inaccurate. Without "WCW cast offs" Jean Paul, Stunning Steve, Cactus Jack, & Mean Mark WWE never over takes the Monday Night Wars. Without "territory cast offs" the 80s WWF expansion never takes off. Without "WWF cast offs" Hogan, Savage, Hall & Nash WCW never becomes the number one wrestling promotion. Just because TNA sucks and could never make the formula work, doesn't make the formula a mistake.

  38. 100% absolutely not. That's one thing I scratch my head about reading the AEW threads here. Everyone wants there to be all these title changes and all these reigns for their favorites. No. Keep the long reigns. Keep the titles important. There's only 3 men out of like 100 that can say they made it to the top of the AEW mountain. While not an apples to apples comparison, almost everyone in the upper card of WWE has made it to the top of the mountain. Ziggler is a former world champ. Jinder is a former world champ. Kofi. Miz. AJ. Strowman. Orton. Rollins. McIntyre. Finn. Owens. I'm sure a bunch more. So why is being world champion a big deal in WWE? Most of the guys there get at least 1 run. Liken that to the 80s. Backlund, Sheik, Hogan, Andre (kinda), & Savage. That's it. Even NWA in the 80s only had Race, Tommy Rich, Dusty, Flair, Von Erich, Garvin, & Steamboat. WWE had 4/5 world champions in 10 years, NWA had 8. For fuck's sake the Universal title has only existed 4.75 years and has had 8 champions and 14 different reigns already. If you want to make stars you need to keep being a champion exclusive. Because then winning the title instantly means you're a star. I mean that's how I view it at least. If you want to keep importance on the titles you can't change them as often as the other guy does. Like people are saying they aren't sure who should beat the Bucks now. Well good. Because they should keep the tag title for at least another year. Then whoever beats them is instantly made.
