    Stacey's Divas Deep Dive

    The Torrie Wilson and Dawn Marie saga is one of the most ridiculous things ever seen on WWE television: a comedy feud full of rape, death and insanity. Take an acid trip down memory lane with me. http://placetobenation.com/staceys-divas-deep-dive-torrie-wilson-and-dawn-marie/

    Stacey's Divas Deep Dive

    One of the big guns this week as I look at Beth Phoenix and how for a monster heel she had a jam packed, creative, versatile career. I also get into why Beth was in like 90% of my dream matches growing up, with everyone from Gail Kim to Batista. http://placetobenation.com/staceys-divas-deep-dive-beth-phoenix-dream-match-dreamboat/

    Aksana dropping a knee like that was actually one of her moves, to be fair.

    Stacey's Divas Deep Dive

    Double whammy catch up here, first with last week's Deep Dive that started with Fandango and ended with literally everyone being a lesbian and an exploration of bisexual representation in WWE. http://placetobenation.com/staceys-divas-deep-dive-lesbian-chicken/ This week I take a look at Maryse the wrestler to celebrate the return of Maryse the wrestler, and try to explain why I could watch her do literally anything on earth and also watch her do absolutely nothing whatsoever. She's mesmerising. http://placetobenation.com/staceys-divas-deep-dive-the-marysiest-maryse-of-them-all/

    WWE Super Show-Down

    It's super going to be a bit weird to see one of my favourite ever matches basically cosplayed by the same people right in front of me live and in person.

    WWE TV 09/03 - 09/09 RIP Brazil's National Museum

    It legitimately blows my mind that Miz and Maryse had those amazing interactions in 2009-10, presumably just when they were getting together and had wicked chemistry...and then WWE put her with Ted Jr. instead and they looked like they had never met. Imagine how good Miz's world title reign could have been with Maryse in tow.

    They just announce like every PPV match on social media with no build because hey, but they sure find time to give R-Truth teaming with Carmella in the MMC the long term build. I love wrestling.

    Women amirite. To be honest this museum thing is really starting to upset me though.

    WWE Super Show-Down

    I don't think the Melbourne crowd will be smarky. Not a crowd of 80k. My experience of WWE house shows in the past is that they're not particularly smarky. More a typical casual WWE audience. I get the use of Hunter and Taker in that sense, to draw in those casual WWE fans who go to house shows because they're there and remember the big stars from years before way more than for current day stars.

    I think they knew I was going and gave me a break by NOT having Shane fucking McMahon wrestling on it.

    Stacey's Divas Deep Dive

    Is there such a thing as a ****+ pillow fight? You fuckin' bet there is! This thing has murder, mayhem, monkeys and some very old school heeling. It is a masterpiece, and to be honest it's probably my masterpiece too. http://placetobenation.com/staceys-divas-deep-dive-the-1-4-lingerie-pillow-fight/

    Stacey's Divas Deep Dive

    Back to talk some more about my favourite tag team - Laycool - I take you through the story of their relationship and ultimately their break up, and explain why it was the Breaking Bad of WWE angles. http://placetobenation.com/staceys-divas-deep-dive-the-tragic-tale-of-laycool/

    WWE Super Show-Down

    On another note, it's early days but for any Aussies on this board who are going to the show, we're looking to organise a bit of a meet up before the show, so if you want in on that action please get in touch with me.

    WWE Super Show-Down

    Oh damn. I could have done with a Cena Indy Workrate match live. The SD title match at Survivor Series being some combo of AJ/Joe and Bryan/Miz is a hell of a thing.
  22. Loved this match. One thing I want to say specifically is that my reading of the elbow kickout was that Kairi had her knee worked over and thus couldn't use her legs to leap as high as she normally does and thus it wasn't her best elbow drop. So I was fine with it.

    WWE SUMMERSLAM 2018 THE BIGGEST PARTY OF THE SUMMER

    I haven't been into a men's match in WWE like that in a long ass time. Incredible.

    Dave Meltzer stuff

    To your point, and I don't necessarily disagree entirely but like... I would give a damn about the hypocrisy angle if the people criticising Dave were like, Vince or Hunter or Kevin Dunn or Stephanie - people with power in WWE who have an actual hand in decision making when it comes to hiring and pushing and presentation of women and making deals with woman hating regimes. Not the women wrestlers themselves, who are far more victims of WWE's historic treatment of women than they are complicit in it. And whose job security is always murky at best. Like, I know Vince Russo piled onto Dave today, for example, and he can get in the absolute trash because he is one of the most egregious exploiters of women in wrestling history. He has no legs to stand on. Neither do the McMahons. It's one of the key facets of marginalisation that society always holds the marginalised themselves responsible for speaking out and raising issues and creating change, when they're the ones with the least amount of power in the situation. It's not the job of the women wrestlers to fix misogyny in the company or publicly square their own feminism with Saudi deals they have no control over. I don't blame workers for the sins of a corporation.

    Dave Meltzer stuff

    They both matter. And they should both be addressed and called out. It doesn't have to be an either/or thing or a value judgment. The problem with whataboutism is that it diminishes experiences. Just because she works for a company that does business in KSA doesn't mean she can't be shamed and offended by a sexist comment. When you start playing "you have no leg to stand on because your boss has done far worse" the actual message gets lost. That's why I chose to focus on the message, and not the hysteria. I think the difference is that I would hope that everyone in this thread understands that how women are treated in Saudi Arabia is wrong. Not everyone seems to understand that speaking about women this way is wrong.
