  1. It's also a legitimately great veteran performance on Gage's part.

    Dave Meltzer stuff

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

    The people who accuse him off getting paid by AEW are dumb. But. He shouldn't be selling AEW tickets, much less doing it and then deflecting criticism thereof with a blatant lie (that they have done the same for WM for years) that doesn't do anything to make it less unethical in the first place.

    The Cancellation of Jim Cornette

    I hope nobody takes this as a shot, but it's not enough that anyone else is really making money in any substantive way, at least I don't think. The other guys are getting promotion out of it on JCE, and there's certainly value in that, but I have no idea how much it's paying off. Certainly enough that they're doing better than the average podcast, but how much better, I dunno.

    Eh don't worry about that, I know it's not you saying that! It should go without saying, but I blocked him after the Bruce Mitchell thing because he clearly lost his shit. I have plenty of followers, it's not like I don't know that one of his weirdo cultists might sent shit to him. Regardless, his reaction to the Bruce Mitchell thing is so bizarre. You accused him, in public, on social media of...taking bribes or secretly working for WCW or something! That's a big deal! To threaten to go off on me because I asked what the heck he was talking about and refuse to explain it...what?!?!? Never mind that I can't figure out if there's something he genuinely thinks Bruce did but won't explain (confusion with Madden?) or if he's just making it up out of thin air (more likely, but contextually weirder based on the available things he could yell at Bruce). I did get a reply from someone saying something like "Didn't Bruce also work for the WCW Hotline?"—so maybe the idea WAS to get people to confuse him with Madden, but that's such a weird way to go. Then again, he's repeatedly accused Wade Keller of nearly ending a TV deal for SMW by writing some kind of SMW GOING OUT OF BUSINESS SOON story in 1993, and I'm pretty sure none of that happened. (Never mind that even if the stuff that he accused Wade of turned out to be true, Wade was in his early 20s then with a not fully developed brain. He's a significantly more mellow guy now, regardless, and would probably be willing to cop to any actual mistakes and smooth things out! But I don't think he did any of it, anyway.)

    What in the world? The only things I've written about him for money in recent times weren't even about him per se, they were a straight news hit for Forbes about the GRaver lawsuit and the MEL article examining why, especially in light of the ACH shirt story and Jim's NWA departure, pro wrestling fandom hadn't had a Gamergate type of moment. But that article didn't really go any further about him than recapping what happened. I'm not sure if I've ever written about him for a wrestling website, or what the last time would be if I have. Hell of a way for him to tell on himself, I guess.

    Is he really *that* online? By the standards of a territorial wrestling star, sure. But otherwise? I think back to a week or two ago where someone on Twitter called him a racist, he noticed that the guy (no idea of he was trans or an ally showing solidarity) had his preferred pronouns in his profile (he/him), and Jim went off on how the guy must have done that because he needed to remind himself and "couldn't find his peepee." Something like that. With the direction that he's been trending, would I be shocked if he knew what he was doing? No, of course not. But it's probably just as likely that he had no clue why the guy's profile said "he/him" and saw it was ripe for an insult. Now, should someone in 2020 have at least a sneaking suspicion why that is? Yes, of course. But by way of being in the bubble, not going anywhere online that his wife isn't setting up for him, etc., he's not gonna learn anything by osmosis, either.

    Basically it looks like he specific tweet in question that set him off was when I took issue with one addressed to Meltzer that said "you know he [Omega] sucks Dave, and I guess you do to[o]." Someone asked me pretty late at at night if Cornette had replied to a specific Dave tweet, so I said yes, he did, and I included a screenshot of that Cornette tweet. What i said was that in the context of the stuff he'd been retweeting in following several hours, it seemed like he was calling Dave "'gay' for" Omega. (He kept retweeting badly made memes of Omega and Meltzer in love, Omega and Meltzer as female anime characters, etc.) My conclusion was drawn mostly from the subsequent retweets, but also the missing comma and "I guess you do, too" being an odd turn of phrase, which made it read more literally to me. How much it being after 11 pm by that point played in my conclusion, I had no idea. By the next morning, a few people politely too issue with my conclusion and I said that yeah, maybe that specific tweet was not meant in any kind of homophobic way. (Even if the didn't change much in the grand scheme of things given Jim's other rhetoric like the retweets, constantly using the word "sissy" to refer to Omega, am LGBTQ wrestler, repeatedly trying to smear Omega as a pedophile—a common bullshit negative stereotype of LGBTQ people, more broadly the fact that "dicklicker" is one of his go to insults, etc.) I had blocked Jim on Twitter several weeks ago after the weird interaction with Bruce Mitchell where he...accused Bruce of taking bribes to change his opinions? Or secretly working for a wrestling promotion? Or something? Then he got angry at me for asking and acted like I couldn't know what he was talking and because I wasn't old enough so to stay out of it. He was clearly full of it and just going after Bruce for no reason, so I got fed up and blocked him. Someone I guess snitch tagged him on the discussion about the Meltzer back and forth, at which time he saw he was blocked and I guess someone else sent him a screenshot. A screenshot that, by then, would have to include my follow ups if the person was being intellectually honest. (LOL.) He got angry that I wasn't "saying it to his face" but that was the end of it for over a week, so I'm still not sure what set him off the other day. And I don't know if he ever saw the "OK, maybe not" follow ups. Obviously, even setting aside everything else, he's a hypocrite about the blocking thing since he blocks tons of people he findals toxic or full of shit. He's a public figure in wresting and I cover wrestling, am I just supposed to not talk about someone if I have them blocked or tag them any time I mention them? Never mind that he also claims to only block fans, "not outlaw mud show wrestlers," only to repeatedly block wrestlers he rants about. (Joey Janela was one, IIRC.) Itv really did seem like getting out of the wrestling meat grinder had chilled him out and greatly reduced his issues for a long time. But the brain worms—over AEW, I guess, as dumb as it is—have regressed him to the guy who threatened to shoot Wade Keller, explained that he had to use the N word because he was in a "cuss fight," gleefully brags about trying to murder Terry Landel in a hit and run, tried to find Bruce Mitchell during an SMW show so he could beat him up right there in the crowd, said horrible racist things to Wade's mom, etc etc. It sucks, and it sucks even more that he's developed such a weird ride or die cult of personality around him. Especially Brian and Travis.

    Hulu has tiering, but I think that's only for removing ads.

    It was worse than that: The promo was immediately after Janela-Spears, and then they cut to Joey being helped to the back immediately afterwards. There was no way to take it other than a hint at a Janela-Sabian program (as opposed to just closing a loop and explaining why Penelope disappeared after Double or Nothing, which feels like a thing AEW would do) because of the placement.
  11. I'm not being a dick about it. You're the only person complaining, and I was trying to explain how you're probably just not looking in the right place. RedCircle only serves MP3s. There's a download button/icon in the corner on the website when you pull up an episode. The feed is serving an MP3 to everyone like it always does. There's not much more I can do to help you, as nothing has changed, and it's not like we're talking about the Patreon feed which can glitch for an individual.
  12. There's a download button for each episode on RedCircle. You can also download through the feed like everyone else. Gonna try to add the remaining missing old episodes in the next week or so. I have to do it manually and it's a pain.

    It wasn't a leaked email; it was an exhibit filed during the Konnan lawsuit because of the references to LAX.

    This, basically: I'm sure there are plenty of people that don't know the background, but the root of the current slang usage is literally what sek said, but with the added backstory element of edgelords freaking out and coopting it because feminist blogs and current events sites with a feminist influence were using "trigger warnings" at the top of certain posts if they pertained to, say, sexual assault. Not to bring it into non-PWO territory, but really the only current common usage involving "trigger" as "upset" that you can automatically assume is not someone being shitty is a mocking reference to someone trying to "trigger the Xs,"' most commonly (but not exclusive to) seen in mocking references in leftist circles to the right wing idea of "triggering the libs."
  15. If you pay me, I can find a much more poetic way to say "fuck you" to you, too.
