  3. I couldn't figure out how to match these to an original post or if we needed them. If we need to move any of them, please let me know. I'll lock this thread a week from today.

    That interview was outstanding. Everyone should listen to the whole thing.

    Ok, it's going to take me about 30 minutes, so I can't do it right now. Basically, I have to go through each page of the thread, make the posts about Cody on each page its own thread, creating multiple threads about Cody and then combining them all into the already created all things Cody thread on the back end. I think for now, everything just needs to be here. In the future, start threads.

    Part of me wants to make you all suffer from the consequences of not starting threads when topics deserve them. But yes, I can split it off. Let this be a lesson!

    I was focusing more on Cody's possible perception of the landscape than any realities of the landscape. I'd be shocked if in his mind, he doesn't think he has a track record now.

    The way Cody thinks, part of me thinks he might see a path to get the keys to the NXT castle and assume a spot within the succession plan to one day run WWE Creative. Think about it -- Vince has lost confidence in his son-in-law and never had confidence in his son at all, and now someone is available who has a track record. I'm not saying WWE would think that way or offer that, I'm saying that Cody might think he can effectively play the game to land in that spot within a few years. It's not about it being realistic or not, it's about him believing it's realistic or not.

    My point is that I don't think quality was as important in the late 90s as it is now. Fans watched wrestling on Monday nights because if you were college-age, it was the thing to do. I was in college at the time and there were viewing parties all over campus. It wasn't even that people were paying close attention. (Drove me crazy how much people talked when I was trying to watch!) Now, wrestling draws from a pool of people who are already wrestling fans, which is a smaller audience, but that also means that making the wrestling good is a lot more important than it used to be.

    Shane McMahon would cost them about $2 million and would be unbearable. They wouldn't be able to really trust him either. I also don't think they'd get much return on that investment.

    The only real problem I see with Ricky Starks is that he doesn't get nearly enough to do. He needs a program he can sink his teeth into. That's true for a lot of AEW talent, but I think it's probably more true for him than it is many others.

    I think one of the divides is that Dave doesn't rate matches based on his personal tastes, as much as people think he does. That doesn't mean his personal tastes aren't a factor, that means he's not saying, "This match is ****3/4 and this match is ****1/2, which means I personally liked the ****3/4 match more." Dave is attempting an objective review of the match where he tries to set aside (or at least contain) what he thinks of the match personally and evaluate how well it worked with its intended audience. His personal tastes will still creep into that because he's not a robot, but he doesn't intend his ratings to be a measuring stick of what he personally enjoys, even if they in part turn out that way sometimes. I think most people here and elsewhere are using star ratings to say how much they personally liked a match and what it meant to them as a viewer. Yes, Dave's ratings are ostensibly that, but he's striving for them not to be that, and the final rating is meant to reflect that combination of attempted objectivity (which is impossible but what he's striving for) and his own personal tastes (which he's attempting to downplay in the hopes that he can be fair). That said, if the wrestling quality offends his sensibility so much that he can't get past how well it worked live (think Hogan-Andre at WM3), he's going to crap on it regardless.

    TV is different than it was in 1998. So are wrestling fans.
