    Bruce Mitchell Drama

    Maybe. FWIW, this goes along with the announcement about Drew McIntyre that they could have used a kayfabed injury/ailment to take him off TV and pull out of the Royal Rumble match and not say it’s THE VIRUS DU JOUR, but there is need for information right now for public eye entities to be upfront about certain things. FWIW, just came from a FB group where trolls pissed all over Michelle McCool announcing she has COVID with “OMG why do these people think we care if they get sick or not?” While yes, that is most likely trolling, but I’d imagine sentiments are going to go back to “are you really going to make a public statement when you get the the sniffles?” soon enough, but I’d imagine there is reason enough during a pandemic for those to be reminded that this is still a thing.

    RIP Kevin Greene

    IDK, I’d imagine Scott and Kevin would have improvised it as a run-in with a WCW loving Baltimore security rent-a-cop.

    WWE TV 05/18 - 05/24 The Last Dance was fucking incredible

    Very true as well

    He also said “Luthor” instead of “Luger” once. But that can be chalked up to the iconic DC villain being much more known of a mainstream “Lex” than the pro-wrestler.

    Bruce Mitchell Drama

    I don’t know if he is one of those WWE Fanboys waiting to pounce on a major AEW misstep, in order to not just call them out for doing things they take shots at WWE for, but to shout “SEE! THEY ARE JUST AS SCUMMY AS THE “EVIL EMPIRE” IS!” but yeah that seems about right for what he wrote. I use the idea that lesser public people and companies have been vilified for lack of transparency based on where we are right now in the pandemic, so I can see the “gotcha” mentality bubbling to the surface so they can claim “justification” if proven correct.

    Bruce Mitchell Drama

    The Twitter user I retorted to used the “logic” of all the swipes AEW has taken at the WWE’s issues as reasoning to be all “hush hush” Again though, due to all sorts of issues, both ethical and currently legal, research and public policy, reasons, you can’t be all quiet about it due to patient’s privacy issues. ”Why wasn’t AEW shut down” ”Who was told, who wasn’t notified that they were exposed” ”How did they get EVERYONE to stay quiet knowing they worked with someone with the virus” would be legit questions to ask. But considering where he was, Mayo Clinc, does suggest that there isn’t some big conspiracy to hide a major infectious super spreader that was in the AEW locker room.

    My first thought was the infection that took out Jim Henson

    Bruce Mitchell Drama

    Wow! I saw someone tweet about that, not quoting Mitchell, to Conrad. I tried to take him down by pointing out how criminally bad that would make her, AEW and the Mayo Clinic look if they failed to disclose if he had COVID. With everything going on with regulations and infectious exposure contact tracing, now would very much NOT be the time to withhold that particular cause of death due to patient privacy. As well as the idea that cases need to go into the public record for research and public policy needs! And never mind how much crap people like Justin Turner (mingling about the post World Series celebration despite being removed from the game after testing positive) get for being Typhoid Mary like self-super spreaders!

    Comments that don't warrant a thread - Part 4

    I’m still trying to figure out what “50% of a trademark” was supposed to “prove” right to ownership. To be fair though, sounds like a petty thing Vince would do, if the WWE wasn’t a public company. Especially to keep AEW from using certain registered names and concepts like “The Match Beyond” Send them to a low rent, backwater indie that is no threat to you!

    Nothing here on the WCW 2021 scam that made IWC Twitter ablaze for a couple of days last week!?

    RIP Pat Patterson

    People still sneer at priests of any denomination based on the abuse scandals over the decades. Also they all are still targets of snide remarks and assumptions that they only went into such an occupation solely to act on their predatory desires.

    WWE Hall of Fame 2020

    As much as I agree with that sentiment regarding WWE Hall ceremony fan attendees, plenty of physical sports Halls, including the big ones, are doing it the same way, mushing class years together.
  13. IDK about recent years, but soon after Keith was always stating it as a fact that Owen was to be crowned IC Champ the night he died.

    WWE TV 08/24 - 08/30 HUGE News!

    How often will “I’m afraid I’ve got some bad news” will be worked in? Especially during setup of the spot moments?
  15. Probably will be the same for players. IDK how much wrestlers saying that it’s a big deal is kayfabe lip service these days as with the exception of WM, and no matter the promotion they’re in the same arenas for house shows that PPVs and special events get held in. And I’ve seen other performance artists say they prefer smaller crowds to the bigger arenas/stages. But yeah, baseball is a non-scripted sport where the “playoff atmosphere,” and crowd affecting performances is very real. Probably the best example is the first ever postseason series where the home team won every game. It’s wasn’t just that the Twins performed better, or had better pitching those nights, but to this day the being in front of the Metrodome crowd is considered a huge factor in why the Twins won the 1987 World Series.
