  1. This thread too? Come on. Please make it stop.
  2. I apologize that this is my first post in the wrestling folder in months. It seems inappropriate to come here just to chime in on this particular case. But the arguing has to stop. I ask everyone to assume the best in intentions and also try not to pick fights. Please? I'd prefer not to remove anyone from the board and hope that doesn't become necessary. If it does, I will.

    So I felt like I should say something. I'm not entirely sure what to say, but something is better than nothing I suppose. I should probably start by acknowledging my absence and apologizing for not being around for so long. I've had a lot going on in my life -- some good, some bad -- but the key words there are just "a lot". This isn't the appropriate forum to get into all of it, really, and I'm fine and my family is fine. But for better and for worse, I'm at a point in my life these days where the daily grind just empties me, and I don't have much else to say. That's the main reason I haven't posted. I asked John (wahoo's leg) to handle administrative duties for the site the last few months because some unexpected business opportunities fell into my lap that I had to make my priority. He's done a great job and I'm thankful for his help. Interestingly, this happened right at the time I was planning to start doubling down on my commitment to the site. So for the last four months or so, my energy and focus has been elsewhere. I've watched occasional wrestling, but not very much of it. Outside of getting amusement out of Daniel Bryan's promos, I don't really think much of most of it. Not good thoughts or bad thoughts. Just no thoughts at all, really. Everything feels like it's been done a million times and that we've talked about everything five million times. I don't know what I'm trying to say. I definitely want the board to stay around and I will keep it alive forever hopefully. I still have ideas for the site -- all of them sadly require lots of money and personnel, but such is life. I don't hate wrestling. I just have no spark for wrestling at the moment. And real life is demanding enough from me right now that it's probably for the best. I will at least be better about: - Keeping the board up to date - Responding to administrative requests - Responding to PMs (I have tons of them unread right now and it will take me some time to work through them all) Usually, when I lose interest in wrestling, it's brief. The interest always has a way of coming back. Right now, it's not there very much, but know I'm still here and around even if I'm not very vocal. Thanks for being here, and special thanks to those of who you have reached out to see where I've been. Next time I have a reason to be less present, I'll try to say so in advance.

    The Daniel Bryan story is a bit too complicated to summarize here and I don't want to just copy/paste from the WON, but I just wondered if anyone else read that and if so, what your thoughts were. In short, it was a big decision he made a long time ago.

    While the viewing project is done, I'm unlocking the thread so that people can continue to engage with El-P about the posts made herein.

    She used the word "heinous" ... the cultish verbiage in that company never ceases to amaze me.

    It's an admirable stand. I admire those who do it for sure. I just don't hold it against anyone who doesn't.

    While I don't want to dismiss this point entirely, I will also say that I don't think this is a reasonable expectation. We all use Google and Facebook and they do horrible things. There's a good chance that your bank and my bank have directly or indirectly funded terrorism and human trafficking. We work for companies and shop at stores that probably donate to and empower terrible politicians. We buy food and cars and gasoline and healthcare and electricity in a way that empowers evil people. We likely listen to music or watch movies or appreciate art from people who have abused family members or worse. Hell, I claim to care about climate change, but I also eat beef and had two children. The point is not that to cancel WWE Network is foolish. I think it's pretty admirable and respect anyone who has the courage in their convictions to do so. However, I think to expect such action from everyone is asking too much. If we extended this logic to everything, we'd all completely disengage from each other and the world. This sounds like I'm saying we should just throw our hands up in the air, which I'm not saying at all. It's just that I think this point of view has limitations. I wish it didn't.

    Roman Reigns has leukemia

    In fairness, WWE did comment when Perro Aguayo Jr. died.
  10. Jericho said on Dave's show that he feels like he's worth just as much as Brock Lesnar and basically said he wouldn't go back for deals like he's gotten before. I think he means 3-4 matches and ten total dates a year for $5 million (or whatever Brock's deal is) or nothing.

    They are wrestlers and it's a dark history. I don't expect better from most of them. There are a few like Titus O'Neil, who has a reputation that means something outside of WWE, and Sami Zayn, who has been lucky twice in a row by not having to work the shows, from whom I'd expect a little more. Of those two, I'd expect Sami Zayn to take a stand most of all, especially because he could probably make close to what he's making now in WWE with an El Generico revival.
  12. While I don't want to think too much about this until it turns into an actual story, can we safely assume that WWE told Jericho that no way will he ever get a Brock Lesnar deal? (Which was what he said in an interview with Dave a little while back it would take for him to return ...)

    I am so sorry about the confusion from that post. I should have used the quote function, because it wasn't even meant as a response to you, but rather the previous post from aaeo_. I generally agree with what you're saying.

    Followed to its logical conclusion, how would that not make all WWE talk the words of people who will only say nice things? When I hear that line of reasoning, whether it's the intent or not (and I don't think it is in this case, to be clear), it's what comes to mind. If you don't like it, don't watch. If you don't watch, you can't criticize. Therefore, no one has any standing to criticize WWE, whether they watch or not.

    Who's worked up? It's ok to make statements about WWE that aren't positive.
