probably end up in AEW, as he spent significant time in PWG with the Bucks and Kenny
I am b/c Paul came up as talent (vs. being a promoter) and Steph understands the PR value in not getting blasted for it-- but mostly b/c it's such a low bar to be "better" than Vince, who is like literally a top hat away from being a 1920's antitrust villain.
Which ironically enough is prob a schtick he wanted to give someone. "OIL BARON CENA! GOOD ****!"
Which he essentially gave to John Leyfield instead, when he went from APA Bradshaw, to JBL.
Sag/Aftra is now involved.
I am kind of two minds about the idea of Unionization in Pro Wreslting.
One the one hand it will give much needed protection to the performers.
One the other hand it would kill the Independent promotions as the promotera of small companies are not going to be able to afford the things a union would require them to in order to book union wrestlers. The jndy scene disapearing would also negativley effect the development of new performers.
Take a company like PWG whose alumni lists is amazing. Kevin Owens, Bryan Danielson, Omega, Sami Zayn, Seth Rollins, Adam Cole and all of the Undisputed era , Richochet, The Young Bucks, Keith Lee, Alaistair Black, Christopher Daniels, AJ Styles, Matt Riddle, ACH, Johnny Gargano and Candice LeRae, Tomasso Ciampa, and Drew Mcintyre all spent decent time in this small California promotion that ran its shows out of a Jewish Community Center, an american legion hall, and the Burbank armory. They and many like them would go out of business.
If “indie” promotions (and I’ve always felt that divide was arbitrary and misleading) are unable to provide the basic protections and benefits that regular businesses already have to provide regardless of size, then they don’t deserve to exist, in much the same way I am unmoved by the so-called plight of the alleged small business that can’t “afford” to pay living wages. Sorry your carnie darlings are reliant on a grotesque business model.
So Mox just casually revealed that Renee is pregnant in his promo on AEW Dynamite tonight...
i'm glad they aren't in WWE or it would have been another maria-mike, or rusev-lana cheating thing for sure
Spectacular episode of NXT last night. Feels like they're building everything in great directions. What they're doing with Leon Ruff is particularly unexpected and awesome.
And now...WOAH GEHMZ! Loved getting the drop on it from Shotzi, who has quickly become my favorite:
WWE is moving the Thunderdome to the Tampa Bay Rays stadium per Meltzer beginning on December 11th.
And the curtain falls on the Undertaker.
If anybody is deserving of a grand send-off it's 'Taker
Shame there wasn't a crowd to see it.
Nice that a holographic Paul Bearer showed up.
I would have liked to see more from all those legends in the ring though.
I'm sure Taker will have a great HOF speech.
He was almost upstaged by the legend that is the Gobbledy Gooker.
Was it still Eddie's Guerrero's brother Hector in the suit?
With his Mickey Mouse tattoos and his 33lb head
RIP Bob Ryder.
Why the hell is Mauro calling this boxing thing lol
And why the hell do I know that he is
Because you looked at my post in the Boxing thread, maybe?
lmao I wish instead of having masochistically put this crap on
^ things that could apply to WWE as well lol
Jimmy Rave announces retirement due to arm amputation due to infection.
Not ashamed to admit I'm shaking a little bit right now, as this hits a bit too close to home for me at the moment. Because honestly? Amputation was definitely my fear when I went into the hospital due to my leg infection a couple of weeks ago. I feel so incredibly bad for him right now.
WWE announces that Pat Patterson has died.
ESPN's MMA reporter Ariel Helwani will apparently be apart of the pre-show panel at this Saturday's Takeover.
Spoiler: Aew winter is coming spoiler
Sting! And Schavione sounded like he was near tears calling that. That had to be awesome foe him
