    Dave Meltzer stuff

    So I happened to have conversations with (mostly former WWE) wrestlers in the last several days where Meltzer happened to come up, and based on what they said, the answer is likely "because they think Dave is a puppet for the office." Being that: * WWE has largely stopped responding to wrestling reporters' requests for comment, but Dave is constantly talking about needing to formally ask WWE about this or that. * He reported that quickly debunked story (that he never issued a correction on) about Riddle "telling WWE about the rape allegation when he signed" (when Riddle's narrative is that Cartwright went Bitches Be Crazy after he broke off the affair, which was almost a year after he signed). * Stuff like the "I don't know if Punk is gonna be at Raw, but one of the biggest stars in the history of the business is sure he will be" story turned out to be explicitly planted by the office, if I remember correctly. ...I can see where they're coming from.

    Enzo claimed that, and the police report later backed him up.

    RIP Johnny Walker, aka Mr Wrestling II

    I tried to see if there were any further government records and came up empty. Maybe could have gone farther though. I get the impression that people in wrestling just didn't know. Predates the national registry, only minimal coverage even in the local newspapers, etc. Sometimes I find myself wondering if the Secret Service or FBI flagged it and that's really why he couldn't attend Carter's inauguration, though. Maybe FOIA requests could get us some insight into that.
  8. It's actually even worse than you indicated: "They would pay WWE to license the footage. That’s how WWE makes a huge chunk of money and why they buy all those old territory tapes." Not only did he pull a "they pay WWE" answer out of his ass, but he also invented WWE having a lucrative side business for licensing out their archival footage, something that doesn't exist and has no evidence of existing.

    The Cancellation of Jim Cornette

    The original idea was Brian, being Jim's friend, having a strong knowledge of old school wrestling, and having a good memory for what Jim's discussed on past shows/shoot interviews, would be the ideal co-host to keep Jim talking about the stuff he loves and out of angry ranting mode. Then AEW launched and Jim's rants stuck a nerve with a specific subset of fans, resulting in the show's popularity exploding. So they're never gonna go back to the old, better format because it's been the much less lucrative one.

    Dark Side of the Ring: Viceland docu-series

    The only family members in it are Martha and the kids. JR, Cornette, Jim Korderas, Godfather, D-Lo Brown, and Jericho are also in it as talking heads.

    Y'all realize these aren't being made for diehard newsletter readers, right?

    Holy Grails

    No. That's a TV match from January.
  14. It's also a legitimately great veteran performance on Gage's part.

    They've never sold tickets to WrestleMania proper. Smolek on their forum organizes a group buy. They've sold actual AEW PPV tickets.
