  1. The Owen episode will surely shed some light on this, since we finally get Martha's side of the story. Though it's not really hard to imagine what it is - I'm guessing she won't budge on the HoF issue because she doesn't feel like the company should make even more money off of her dead husband. It might be different if it was just a simple ceremony honoring Owen. Vince gonna Vince so it has to be a huge spectacle not fully focused on the actual legendary wrestlers, and he's got to sell an arena full of tickets to the most annoying wrestling fans he can find. How is it a red flag
  2. I don't think the JBL stuff is fair, either - I touched on that in the HoF thread. I think my main issue is that in the cases of Flair and Dusty, I don't think it would matter if there was a smoking gun (and there arguably is, unless you want to come right out and call Teddy Long a liar). There are LOTS of instances of wrestlers doing racist things or being racist, and very few of them seem to be held accountable for it in the way that Hogan is. I think it's ridiculous that what all that seems to be based on is people's wrestling opinions. If you hate racism and want to rail against it, that's
  3. If you truly believe this, you haven't talked about wrestling on the internet for the last 25 years and you certainly don't read this particular board. Saying Hulk Hogan gets credit from the mainstream, or casual fans? That's fair. But hardcore wrestling fans go out of their way to shit on Hogan for everything, and that was the case long before he used racist language. Meltzer has shit on Hogan consistently for 30+ years. The attacks on his personal character, outside of the racist stuff? You aren't really in a position to say they're valid. He's a shrewd businessman that t
  4. So he missed the joke because there wasn't a funny part. "Hogan didn't get squashed by Brock quickly enough" is the kind of revisionism that you could definitely expect from some in the IWC - if they ever talked about this match. But of course, the reason no one talks about this match is because Hogan did the right thing and it made Brock look like a million dollars. Can't be giving Hogan any credit for literally anything without Natural coming and spamming threads. IIRC, people thought it was a great way to get Brock over, but even then no one was willing to praise Hogan too loudly.
  5. The "WWE ruined _______" narrative is so heavily reinforced here that it's easy to slip what amounts to 100% bullshit under the radar...fucking Sasuke? Really?
  6. Knox County issued a "safer at home" order to distract us all from the fact that they aren't going to issue a stay at home order.
  7. Los Parks cooking breakfast is the kind of content we all need right now.
  8. The truth typically lies somewhere between Prichard and Meltzer. A documentary show that relies solely on Meltzer's takes would be garbage too. Not that that is in any way what is happening here.
  9. The "Jean Pierre LaFitte" name wouldn't have been used for this run - this is fresh off the last Quebecers run right after Jacques Rougeau went into semi-retirement. And yes, he is shoot missing an eye. The reason this is full of lower tier talent is because it was on a "volunteer" basis. I'm betting most of these guys knew they weren't going to make TV if they didn't sign up. Look how many of them are gone within a year or so: Hawk, Savio, Canterbury, Brakus, Mero, 8-Ball, Severn, Williams, Pierre, Scorpio, even Bart. Droz's accident was about a year later, too, so only Blackman, Godfath
  10. And yes, NY probably does test more than other states. Certainly more than my state.
  11. Regarding the music - a lot of the guys were coming out to stock themes the WWE didn't own at that time (I vividly remember Mero coming out to the same music as The Renegade). So whatever generic stuff Canterbury and Bradshaw came out to was likely what the Network dubbed in to replace those equally generic themes.
  12. Seeing David's eyes and face light up while he was talking about his dad... Seeing Chavo break down. This put me in a very bad place.
  13. They're counting on people's hate boner for Corbin to get Gronk over. So basically, it's time to start loving and appreciating Corbin for the fantastic work he does.
  14. The degree to which this is happening will surprise you, I promise. Remember the 13,000 number is the symptomatic people that have been tested, leaving out the symptomatic people that haven't been tested, as well as the far larger number of asymptomatic carriers of the virus.
  15. Satin is *right* and it's really not a matter of opinion. These shows are a public health risk, period. Just because he's a stooge that attacks AEW while letting WWE off the hook doesn't mean what he's saying is incorrect. "Sight unseen" is not how this shit works. You can't tell by looking at people whether they have the virus. It is irresponsible to continue these shows regardless of which company is doing it.
  16. I don't think there's anyone on the board that would argue this point. Even the people who aren't enjoying Dynamite as much as most will concede that they're blowing WWE out of the water right now. Maybe this was why I enjoyed the show so much this week? Crowd reaction shots need to be excised from all professional wrestling shows. One of the worst (if not THE worst) bad habits they've picked up from WWE. Good show all around, worked very well around limitations, etc. Show should NOT have taken place and should NOT be taking place next week or any subsequent weeks until thi
  17. It's also what everyone except you fully expected. So maybe you should have chilled out instead of weirdly doubling down on a complaint that didn't even affect you and implying shady things were happening when they absolutely weren't.
  18. That's what this thread is. You've been told more than once to stop posting videos here.
  19. Pretty sure there's already been talk of how bad Blood and Guts would be without a crowd, too.
  20. Casey's doing that over in the AEW thread as we speak.
  21. Again - no one is "spinning" anything. There is a global crisis happening. You will get your money. Chill out.
  22. 89 - before Watts. I noticed JR calling Funk "Ric Flair" during the match, too - he really doesn't seem to have changed that much as an announcer at all. It's just that fans of newer stuff disagree with a lot of his opinions, which wasn't typically the case until maybe mid-2000s?
  23. I mean, the entire world is kind of in crisis mode right now. Be patient. You'll get your refund.
  24. Yeah, I'm okay with everyone just going home instead of legitimately beating the shit out of each other.
