    Watch this if you want to see a couple of roided-up clods injure a child in the audience.

    Looks like she's not retired after all. Still, why would someone ask to be released from the #2 promotion in the country only to go back to working local indies? It does seem a bit fishy.

    The problem is that all of Brock's hoss fights since the first Roman match have been disappointments. At this point in his career, he's much better suited for throwing around smaller flippy guys. Brock/Ricochet would probably be a dope match.

    Now this is the kind of absurd sports entertainment bullshit I can get behind. I might actually tune in to Raw to see this.
  5. A wrestling promo isn't a battle rap where the only goal is to diss your opponent. If you're trying to promote something (your match, your promotion, yourself), there has to be an degree of plausibility to what you're saying. Calling your promotion the best is fine, but saying guys like Cole and Gargano are developmental geeks who can't hang with Joey Janela and Tye Dillinger makes you sound like an insecure idiot.

  7. This year has exposed Omega as someone who desperately needs a filter. Gedo's greatest accomplishment as booker just might be making him look like a guy you could build a promotion around.

    It seems far more likely to me that Kross is trying to book his own angle. Batista's main career is Hollywood, and working a wrestling match, especially a shoot-style one, would make it harder to insure him. I rather doubt that he'd jeopardize his movie career to work a match with some random indy dude.

    That sucked too, but the major difference is that Bryan was trying to get his wife to safety and wasn't running to protect himself. And he fought back against Kane instead of cowering in the corner. Hell, that actually strengthens my point. Seth is being booked worse than Daniel Bryan, who WWE actively tried to sabotage at every turn.

    Seth looks like he's about to piss his pants. Can you imagine any other top babyface cowering in fear like a teenager in a slasher film? As lame as Seth is, the booking has hardly done him any favors.

    At least Seth doesn't throw pancakes into the crowd on his way to the ring.
  12. WWE's 2012 SEC filing includes HHH's booking contract, which contains the following clause (emphasis added): "In the event WRESTLER desires upon reasonable notice to PROMOTER during the Term of this Agreement either individually or through his authorized representative(s) to participate in movies, films, commercials, product endorsements, videos, television programs or similar activities, whether or not procured by PROMOTER (collectively “Permitted Activities”) and promotional events for the Permitted Activities, WRESTLER may do so subject to PROMOTER’s approval, which shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed provided a written sublicense is executed between PROMOTER, WRESTLER and any relevant third parties and further provided WRESTLER shall not utilize the Intellectual Property in any manner in connection with such Permitted Activities without PROMOTER’s written consent, which shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed, and that PROMOTER retains first priority, to the exclusion of any such Permitted Activities, with respect to the use and scheduling of WRESTLER’s services at all times during the Term of this Agreement, as defined herein. It is further agreed that PROMOTER shall receive from WRESTLER a management fee to reimburse PROMOTER for its reasonable administrative costs incurred in connection with WRESTLER's participation in each such Permitted Activity, provided that PROMOTER's costs shall not be less than ten percent (10%) of any fees received by WRESTLER for each such Permitted Activity described herein. Additionally, all monies earned by WRESTLER from such Permitted Activities in a specific Contract Year shall be credited against the Minimum Annual Compensation for that Contract Year as set forth in paragraph 7.1 below." So not only are any outside endeavors subject to WWE approval, any compensation they get counts against their WWE salary.
  13. Still waiting for JvK to give a valid reason why someone who is contractually bound to work exclusively for a particular corporation shouldn't be considered an employee of that corporation. Until he does that, there's really no reason to continue this discussion. And no, "it might lead to Ted DiBiase's son being pushed more than I would like" is not a valid reason.
  14. It's only a real choice if the former option entails actual independence (meaning the wrestler is free to take outside bookings, turn down programs, walk out if they so choose, etc.). The current classification scheme serves no purpose except allowing WWE to evade payroll taxes.
  15. Dave said on Twitter that WWE has hired a lobbyist, so they clearly think it pertains to them.
