    RIP Guy Hauray

    It's like back when Oasis was a thing and MTV felt the need to provide subtitles for Gallagher brothers interviews.

    MOTYs by year

    Made my first #1 pick for 2021.

    Current New Japan

    According to the latest Observer, the guys who were forming AEW approached White with interest in late 2018, but he told them that he had just signed a seven-year deal with New Japan. He's also being advertised for the March Budokan show, which they wouldn't do if they thought there was a chance he wouldn't be there. So it looks like we can all breathe easy.
  4. Thank you for another epic recap, brother TTK. I'm kind of torn here. On the one hand, giving the referees additional responsibilities (stooging for the office) without any corresponding increase in pay and/or benefits is a bullshit carny move. On the other hand, showing up to work on time is a basic requirement in any job. If you get fined for not doing the bare minimum, don't blame the guy who stooged on you. Hilarious. I'm sure we'll see plenty of examples of "Vince loved me but that son of a bitch Johnny Ace" in these interviews.
  5. Hold on to your hats, folks. There's a title match coming up, and you know what that means: time for another CONTRACT SIGNING. https://www.wwe.com/shows/smackdown/article/roman-reigns-adam-pearce-universal-title-contract-signing-royal-rumble Please try to contain your excitement.

    Is the empire crumbling before our eyes?

    I can totally see Vince not dying a natural death and having to be taken out like Vigo the Carpathian. Something of that scale would really be the only fitting end for him. Seriously, wouldn't it be the biggest letdown ever if he ended up dying of, like, pneumonia?

    Wrestling Bookers

    One important thing to keep in mind is that wrestlers who become bookers tend to book in their own image because that's what they know best. Jerry Jarrett loved skinny blondes who could bleed and sell. Bill Watts loved big strong ex-jocks. When Dusty got the book in the Carolinas, he turned the company into a blood circus. We see that even today with Gedo loading (many would say overloading) New Japan with Southern heel shtick. With that in mind, I like the Waltman suggestion. He seems like he'd be an effective bridge between wrestling's past and its future since the trend is toward smaller and more athletic workers.

    Winning streaks - good or bad?

    ECW never made money, so you can't really call their guys legit main event babyfaces.

    Is Impact the best promotion in wrestling history?

    Brother @El-P will probably be bummed by this move, but for the rest of us, this is cause for rejoicing. At least, it would be if they weren't replacing him with Striker. Total monkey's paw scenario.
  10. I liked Bigelow best teaming with Vader in New Japan. As far as criteria, I'd say anyone whose wrestling style is listed as "Powerhouse" on Cagematch should be eligible. In that case, though, Jumbo Tsuruta is the greatest big man of all time.
  11. Arn has also praised Kane for his ability to convey emotion through body language, which is hard to do when you wear a mask. Honestly, though, the public statements wrestlers make in praise of their colleagues have to be taken with a grain of salt. Meltzer once posted that a lot of the folks who publicly call HHH an all-time great privately say he would have been an average main eventer in the 80s. Regarding Kane, he said that most wrestlers say he's either mediocre or the total shits.
  12. Even if it was a sucker punch, knocking out a guy who outweighs you by some 200 pounds is a hell of a feat. And Orndorff did it with his weak arm to boot.

    Winning streaks - good or bad?

    WWE surely realized that whoever ended the streak would be the target of a massive fan backlash (which is why our old friend Dylan Waco always suggested having Cena end it by cheating and turn heel in the process). That's why the heel transitional champion exists-to put over the new top guy without alienating fans of the old top guy. Roman was still overwhelmingly popular among the fans in 2014 (they legitimately voted him Superstar of the Year), so they clearly never anticipated that they might turn on him the way they did after he won the 2015 Rumble. Also, the streak had to end while Taker still had something left in the tank for it to mean anything. If Roman had ended it at WM33, it would have come across as a sad mercy killing rather than a genuine accomplishment. Brock losing to Cena in his first match back is precisely why he needed the streak. WWE had largely squandered his comeback with the Cena loss and the interminable HHH feud. He needed something huge to restore him to what he should have been all along.
  14. The Death of WCW Debate might be fun to pick apart. My understanding is that Bischoff bullshitted his way through the whole thing and caught Reynolds completely flat-footed.
  15. He's the world champion who just shot a major angle with Goldberg. They can't just put him on ice and pretend he doesn't exist like they could with most of the roster. Actually, the Observer reported a while back that merch sales are virtually identical to what they were pre-COVID due to sales on WWE Shop skyrocketing. Whether the talent is receiving a similar amount of merch revenue as before is another story.
