    The Cancellation of Jim Cornette

    Did Cornette say Kenny King was lazy, or is that your own commentary? If Cornette said it, referring to a black man lazy is not exactly the best look, whether he meant it in a racial way or not - and it's becoming harder and harder to give the wildly out of touch "it was a starvation joke" Cornette the benefit of the doubt on things like this.

    In these tough times, Mauro's booming voice is as soothing as an angel's choir. Think Drake is actually winning this thing?

    WWE Network... It's Here

    WWE Network has been doing them all along. - Monday Night War - Breaking Ground - Ruthless Aggression Just to name a few.
  5. Still a work in progress. He was a jobber for several years under his own name. Rad Radford in the WWF might have been in his first real push, but the gimmick was abysmal shit - like so many of the time period. I didn't see him in ECW. His WCW push as Hall's lackey was interesting and had potential, but of course no one knows the outcome of that because he died so young.

    Drew Gulak is back. He's listed as a Smackdown wrestler again on WWE.com.

    Plexiglas is a smart idea, but are the "audience members" really six feet apart?

    Speaking of which, I wonder if Taker has some sort of sponsorship deal with this company - because every shirt he's worn in this documentary is from them (with the exception of that amazing yellow Japanese Andre shirt).

    I realize you're being facetious and asking a rhetorical question, but I obviously don't have the answer.

    It's not black and white with Dustin, based on what I've seen on Facebook. He's a "good ol' boy" in some respects, but also has no patience for transphobia because one of his kids is trans. Edit:

    No, I know what Blue Lives Matter is - and I agree with everything you said - I'm just wondering which shirts are actually Blue Lives Matter shirts. Because unless you know what to look for, they appear to be cheap, tacky American flag shirts you'd find at a gas station or a convenience store. (Again, a complete lack of honesty and integrity from the MAGA, alt-right, Blue Lives Matter, etc. cult - everything is "coded" and nothing is straightforward.)

    WWE Network... It's Here

    I'm not sure what took me so long to start The Undertaker: The Last Ride, but I went through the first two episodes last night and will be watching the third tonight. As everyone else has already said, this is extremely well done and a compelling look at The Undertaker out of character. While he has "broken character" in the past, it was only for tiny clips on his wife's Instagram or whatever - never nearly as in-depth as this. All of the little backstage moments are cool as hell to see. I was surprised by the strength of the friendship between Vince McMahon and The Undertaker. It's one thing to hear about it and quite another thing to see Vince getting emotional and Taker admitting Vince is someone he'd take a bullet for. Michelle McCool also comes across really well as Undertaker's wife and the rock in his life, not to mention still being a stunning beauty. Some questions: - Was the Undertaker/Vince conversation about ending the streak shown or mentioned here? I kept looking for it, but I don't remember seeing/hearing it. I read about it on one of the newz sites and assumed it was from a recap of this show, but maybe it was from a separate interview he did? - What is the big hullabaloo about the shirts? Is there more than meets the eye to that black American flag shirt, for example? Not to sound naive - I am genuinely wondering - I know the MAGA alt-right operates in "coded" messages because they don't have the honesty and integrity to put anything out there in a straightforward manner. But...Pro Wrestling Only, so I'll leave it at that. (I love the hell out of that yellow Japanese Andre shirt though and want one ASAP!) - Was the Undertaker/Roman match really as bad as he thought? I remember it being a bit long and plodding at times, but more or less fine overall. Not a classic by any means, but not necessarily embarrassing either. He seemed really shaken by it though, comparing himself to Fat Elvis. As much as I want to see Undertaker for many more years, part of me think it's a shame he didn't retire on that note with leaving his hat and boots in the ring, because it was so perfect. Why? All of the ones I've watched on the Network have been excellent (Mark Henry, etc.). Some of the older DVD docs definitely smacked of WWE bubble ass-kissing and revisionist history though. Even the recent "Ruthless Aggression" doc had a bit of that (particularly the creative revisionism about changing WWF to WWE and "getting the F out" ). But the majority of the Network-era docs are actually fantastic - particularly the ones where someone dies and they have less than a week to put something together (like that Dusty doc). It shows you how good their video team is, because the quality is on par with anything from ESPN or HBO.

    Is the empire crumbling before our eyes?

    Elvis being racist was thoroughly debunked though. Chuck D passing along urban legends as facts doesn't make it so. https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/shine-my-shoes/
