    Is the empire crumbling before our eyes?

    Vince's mummified corpse will become the new Wrestlemania sign for everyone to point to.

    Winning streaks - good or bad?

    Log brings up a good point about Game of Thrones. I don't think this is limited to streaks in wrestling. Is there a universally praised ending to anything in entertainment? We all spend our time fantasy booking how things go and, unless it supersedes our expectations or meets them, they always pale in comparison in our eyes.

    Is the empire crumbling before our eyes?

    I'm not sure if this is big enough to bump the thread but it doesn't fit the Weekly thread. Fightful posted that around a half dozen wrestlers negged out on signing new contracts stating they want to see what the future holds for WWE's plans post COVID. The summary I get is that their expectations (especially in comparison to other offers given in 2019) were well different to what WWE actually offered now. Choosing not to resign is nothing new, but I can't recall it being in such numbers before.
  5. Bix' picked up the story and is in contact with Rip. Let's see what 'proof' there is because this looks like a nothing story so far.

    Greatest Rookie Year Ever

    I wonder if that project is still available via Wayback Machine? It was a fantastic resource and pointed me to Funk/Jumbo 1976 which is my favourite match ever.

    Greatest Rookie Year Ever

    I always think of Tamura as someone great out the gate but I might be out of sync with others on that. As for the inverse, Cesaro was someone who was so frustratingly middling when he debuted in the US/rose through the indies. He only really started putting things together in about 2009 and hit his stride in 2011. That's 6 years of meandering.

    WWE TV 12/14 - 12/20 *vacated space*

    I'm guessing the relationship was to Brandi's Nightmare Collective but I'm not sure

    AEW Dark Megathread

    Here he is with his band (Not Your Average Band) winning their high school talent show:
  11. We're also comparing apples to oranges in terms of direct earnings. Of course I can completely understand the rationale here, that is a ludicrous amount of money (for us third worlders especially) but is it a lol of money when compared to contemporaries? Other sportsmen, other TV personalities? Even then I'm not sure it's enough of a direct comparison - like we can never compare a national footballer's money to a provincial/club level player. WWE is massive business and salaries even at the bottom level should be reflective of that. To me they're earning a metric fuckton but, in relative terms to their world, it is a drop in the bucket.

    Current Lucha Talk

    I'm guessing this is why I saw people speculating Batista would be in AAA, then. Of course that won't happen but, like you said, this is a big deal.

    WWE TV 11/23 - 11/29 Lakers gonna three-peat

    As someone who gave up on WWE storylines, Main Event scratches the itch I have for good wrestling. Besides, they usually run matchups on house shows before putting them on TV. Hopefully (not likely), this is a dummy run before they put out a storyline.

    Children choking each other was the main concern that someone in the company (Cena even?) mentioned before. Of course that could just be a way to brush off bad wrestling but it fits with company MO and it isn't as if John hasn't shown an ability to be vicious. Cena choked Edge out with the STF at Unforgiven 2006. I'd need to go back and see how loose his STFs were before that but I do imagine that was an example they pointed to when deciding this:
