    As for Impact they seem to have a good roster but there's moves that can be made within there too.  If they pick up enough big names they might get more attention from those who normally don't watch them.  

    Their champion is Rich Swann, for fuck's sake. They're still giving Tommy Dreamer pushes. They can definitely squeeze in some more people on the roster.

    I can see the Christians, Paul Wights, and maybe Jerichos of the world I guess doing what the old de facto retired NFL and NBA vets do and sign a 1 day contract with WWE to say they retired while in WWE.

    I could definitely see Jericho doing that, but not the other two. Based on his appearance on Renee's podcast, Wight absolutely has some sore feelings over how he was treated by the WWE. And Christian kept bolting every chance he got to sign somewhere he thought would give him a better opportunity, so I doubt he's as loyal as you think.

    Yes, Comcast is making edits to WWE programming. 

    We know, you're upset you can't see a joke from 1997 that you'd forgotten about until it was brought up again just now. 

    If you say "cancel culture", I'll personally fire you into the sun.  

    Oh God, I fell behind on reading the monthly thread, and I'm only on page 50 so far. Please tell me there isn't 9 more pages of that shit.

    So I usually have to accept my exhaustion and try to understand that I will probably be forever tired, but maybe the next generation of trans folks won't be. Which gives me some solace, at least.

    The next generation will definitely have it easier. This country has become less conservative over time, not more, and the people who are railing against the trans community are becoming less relevant with each passing day. Just look at the results from the past 8 general elections. Thirty years ago they complained about homosexuals, and they can't do that anymore so they have to turn their ire on someone. Eventually they'll turn their attention towards someone else once they've figured out they've lost the fight, but there will be even less of them by that point.

  5. Remember when the WWE split up Heavy Machinery by turning Tucker Knight heel; then they did nothing at all with Tucker while they tried pushing Otis as a singles guy; only to realize that Otis kind of sucks as a single guy, so they ended up turning Otis heel... and putting him in a tag team...

    Yeah, no kidding.  I think at this point I'll watch what I can and unless they are true to their word I'll probably need to start seeking out comps.

    That's what I'm doing since I cancelled my Network sub last year. I have a huge collection of tapes I inherited that I've been converting to DVD, but there are a few glaring holes that I would love to get filled. (If anyone knows a good source for 80s territory comps, slide into my DMs. Also, if anyone has a VCR and wants some tapes, hit me up.)

    Look at how they used Tyson in WWF. He was a big star from a different ("more legitimate" ) fighting art and he could 100% punch out the lead heel if he got a lucky shot in, but they made it seem like Austin vs Tyson would have been a hell of a fight.

    Uh, I dunno if Mike fucking Tyson punching anyone could be considered a "lucky shot."

    Okada went from a wrestler who I didn't quite like because it felt like he was being shoved down our throats to a wrestling that I really love and he's easily one of my favorites. Knowing he's working with two slipped discs scares me. Like, dude, you could be the GOAT. If you need to take a year off then take a year off and heal up. This is just insanity.

    It's especially ridiculous considering he isn't working any major programs, and they don't need him to draw crowds due to the pandemic. There's literally no legitimate reason he needs to be wrestling.

    and also gave me tips for pleasing the ladies which I will treasure always.

    Look, you can't just casually drop that in there without giving us more details. I think we all need to know the Anvil's philosophy for making sweet love to the ladies. Was he big on foreplay? Did he focus on oral? What were his thoughts on butt stuff?

    WWE likes to manufacture legends.  I'd say, other than HHH, Edge is their most manufactured "legend".  As in, he's a guy who's referred as one, but just doesn't have the resume or popularity to back it up.

    It's been said that in his prime, Ric Flair could carry a broomstick to a 5 star match. With Edge, it's the opposite--the broomstick would be the one carrying him. Every great match Edge ever had required copious amounts of ladders, chairs, and other plunder to be memorable.
