    She didn't want to travel because of COVID, which is fair, but then she wanted 150k for returning the belt.

    Her recent antics with the Impact World Title would hurt her future employment. Promotions will forgive being an asshole but I don't think they'll take a chance on people that might steal your belt.

    Didn't she get into some sort of shooty thing with someone on one of those early shows? I remember there being an incident and her usage went way down.

    Oh shit, I'm down if we can get Sexy Starr for this.

    Like is Bart Gunn going to be WWF Champion and draw you millions upon millions of dollars? No. Was Steve Williams? Also no. Could you have used that to build Bart Gunn into a mid-carder that has bouts of upper mid-card play and is over? Probably.

    Having a recap episode 3 episodes in was some of the dumbest shit I have ever seen. You can't fucking charge a subscription fee and then have dead weeks not even a month in. They are quickly on thin ice with me.

    Dark Side of the Ring: Viceland docu-series

    I think he would have been fine in the mid-card. JR and Cornette sound insane thinking he was working on top with Austin. I just don't see it all. Wrong kind of charisma and good ringwork meant almost nothing in this era. If this were WCW and we were talking Goldberg/Williams on top, I would still be skeptical but could see that as a possibility. I think Russo is an idiot but Cornette especially came across as very lazy and close minded booking wise. Saying they couldn't do anything with Bart Gunn really fucking annoyed me. You didn't even fucking try.

    Comments that don't warrant a thread - Part 4

    I always thought JCP/WCW had better jobbers and squash matches than WWE did. It felt like WWE always had bottom of the barrel job guys except when Cornette was bringing like Rhino and the Hardys in.

    Is the empire crumbling before our eyes?

    Exactly. If you are a Simon Gotch type, you probably get 6-12 months and a run through all of the promotions before that shine is gone. Someone like Kalisto can probably live off of his previous indy work and WWE run for several years before his value would drop.

    I think WWE is where you go when you are thinking about retiring in 5-7 years and just want to make some easy money and not hustle 24/7. You can do your run and then do another year or two doing a redemption tour before riding off into the sunset.

    It amazes me Mojo was there for as long as he was and showed zero improvement as a worker.

    They could easily release 100 people today and still have a bloated roster. I remember doing an EWR sim of the WWE in 2019 and it was insane. I think I had over 200 people under contract to start.

    You know, he never went in the Dick Bag as much as I thought he would.

    Dark Side of the Ring: Viceland docu-series

    The Brawl For All was really a stupid idea. I do feel like Jim Cornette and Jim Ross came off as almost delusional when they talked about how big Steve Williams was going to be. I wasn't even online yet when they brought him in and even as a newer fan he felt like a weird fit for WWE at the time. He's obviously an amazing worker but I just don't see him getting over with Attitude Era crowds.

    I gotta say. Vince and Steph are underpaid and I'm not even kidding.

    They need to do something because Dark is just a slog to get through. It's pushing 3 hours of squash matches most weeks. I get they want to pay people but there are a solid 10-15 guys on the undercard that could get let go or loaned out to other promotions.

    WWE has become a heel-run promotion

    See, I would actually expect them to do the opposite of that. It's the same reason they job the hometown face all the fucking time.

    Oh the Authority was just brutal. That's where they really started chasing fans away. In hindsight the Authority felt like they were the main heel faction for a decade. Just never-ending and pointless.

    Comic books and Manga Thread

    The Mack stuff is pretty solid. It's really a good series as each writer comes in and just keeps building on what the other did. I just read it a few years ago. I actually thought the Brubaker stuff was better than what Bendis did. It's also a nice bit of side flavor but the White Tiger is a good mini-series to toss in when you get to her showing up. Daredevil Yellow and Daredevil Ninja are also okay side series to read.

    You should consider starting with Smith because that entire run builds off of the vents there. His run is only 6 issues and then you get David Mack's issues which are surprisingly decent. Waid's run is a nice palette cleanser after some really dark times in the book. It's almost a relief in some ways to get a Matt that's sort of happy. It has some weak arcs in that initial run but it's a fun read. I haven't read Soule's stuff yet.

    NXT has been awful about this. I think faces have had 3 months with the belt in the last several years and now heels are beating heels for it.

    I know you are in Canada. Do you want me to keep an eye out at local Half Price books for Astro City stuff?

    My guess is Busiek is signing with a new company and the IP goes with him. Conan and Star Wars both got pulled off or digital platforms when they moved to Marvel.

    Also, this was during the All-New relaunch and it really got lost in the shuffle of a lot of books that were just starting.
