    Shane Taylor's been bought out of his contract. Not sure what the deal is there. https://www.rohwrestling.com/news/official-statement-status-shane-taylor-and-roh-world-television-title

    Current New Japan

    Haven't seen the J Cup yet, but mostly agree on the other points. Really dug the Jr tag match from today, would be pretty excited to see more of both teams. I will say, I didn't really love the KENTA-Ibushi match. Just felt like we'd seen the formula of "sneak attack -> near falls -> interference gaga -> near falls -> babyface comeback" done in a similar way a couple of times this year and the match never totally clicked for me. I do think KENTA's done a great job of embracing the lead role and he and White at the top makes the BC more effective as heels than they've been in years.

    All Elite Wrestling

    The numbers all run together, but at least the majority have been good, ahead of Raw in the markets where WWE has been recently.

    I'm also a little surprised it didn't sell out fairly quickly - maybe not with the insane demand of All Out, but within a day or two. I guess the holiday weekend travel aspect may have been underrated in the first three sellouts?

    Is Impact the best promotion in wrestling history?

    It also solves her getting a title match (Option C) and solves her losing (since she gives up the belt to cash it in).

    MLW Fusion, anyone watching it?

    That's sort of the ROH model most weeks now and what I've seen of it works fine.

    I actually thought this week was pretty good for a filler episode. Pillman-Holliday had a cute finish. Ki's promo was good. Hammerstone looked better than expected in Japan.
  9. a) They weren't employees, either. b) WWE pays talent 8% of revenues. Estimates have treating the wrestlers as employees getting them up to about 12-13%. Major sports pay talent ~50% of revenues. Somehow I think they'll be fine.

    Very interesting to see where that goes, particularly in terms of the relationship with New Japan. Given New Japan's US expansion, any US partner was going to be a VERY junior partner, something that ROH struggled with but Impact would readily accept. Glad, at the very least, that Impact will have solid coverage. This has been my main beef with Impact this year - while they do a nice job of building to the big shows, it's incredibly easy to skip the shows for months before the final build (especially given the length of them). They're just too thin to be compelling for two hours a week without a clear PPV direction.

    WWF TV Shows 1970s to early 1990s (pre-Raw)

    The climaxes were usually on the house shows, although occasionally there'd be things that ended on TV (like the US Express winning the tag titles back from Volkoff/Sheik). The shows definitely referenced each other, quite frequently.

    That makes sense to me and would be a match I'm interested in. I've been watching PCW Ultra's Youtube show, and it might be jumping MLW in the line for me... it's a very easy watch.

    Shoots Review and Preview thread

    The Timelines are usually pretty good, assuming the subject has a decent memory (i.e. you'll get much more out of a Cornette one than the Sandman).

    I'm not sure Lawlor is a great opponent for Fatu. Or maybe he's just a terrible underdog babyface. I'd be curious to see Fatu in a singles match with someone else (all the other stuff I've seen of his has been tag matches with Samael where he's basically the scarier John Kronus to Samael's New Jack in ECW-style brawls). The apparently are scraping another week out of the NYC taping before they show the War Games match, but at least there's a Hart Foundation match lined up. But I'm with you, they are very much on the edge of getting dropped for me. I have tickets to the next NYC show in December, so I might try and hang on until then. Struggling to see what they could put on PPV that would get me to part with even $20.
