    Dave Meltzer stuff

    I guess MeltzerSaidWhat needed competition. No idea why we need multiple accounts to post out of context gotcha journalism-esque Dave Meltzer soundbites.
  2. Also the writer that was caught up in a minor shitstorm a few days ago over her podcast appearance where she told the story of flat-out telling WWE she didn't know a thing about wrestling and they hired her anyway.

    AEW Double or Nothing 2021

    Had a blast watching this show. The pacing was bizarrely off for a lot of the matches but the Stadium Stampede was the kind of feel good I've been badly needing for the past few weeks with how things have been going in my life. Needed something silly to laugh with and have a good time. Thumbs up for the entire show. Loved the triple threat until the ending and same for Baker-Shida, loved it until the ending.

    1971-1982 8mm film restoration (WWWF/WWF Boston & NY)

    I went ahead and re-retweeted the tweet I made about it too. It got some traction on the first day but kinda petered off after that. I'd love to see this get funded.

    WWE Network... It's Here

    Yeah III isn't well booked persay as it's the first post-George Scott Wrestlemania and the show is *packed* with matches so they had to rush everyone to get their shit in and besides the notable matches like Savage-Steamboat and Hogan-Andre almost everything gets about five minutes. One thing that always blows my mind while watching III is how briskly paced it is.

    WWE Network... It's Here

    For me the censored stuff isn't as much of a concern as the slowwwwwwwwwwwwww trickle of the vault stuff. Is every single RAW and Smackdown even up on Peacock yet? The old stuff is the only reason I ever bothered with the Network to begin with so I feel like I shouldn't even bother with this until the apparent August deadline which to be honest, I'm extremely skeptical of.

    Andre and Skaaland, for the record, which just picturing those two together plotting anything gives me great comedic delight for some reason.

    Best YouTube & Dailymotion Channels

    Boosted it on my Twitter as well. My Twitter doesn't really overlap with wrestling fans but it *does* overlap with media preservation enthusiasts (one of my biggest passions) so it'll hopefully get some traction!!

    The Cancellation of Jim Cornette

    Bingo. Not saying anything makes them think it's OK to keep doing it because you won't do anything about it. That's what always blew my mind about school bully logic from adults. We all saw bullying in our lifetimes in school, and I even worked in a school system for a brief period of time. I've never seen a bully actually stop bullying someone because they ignored it. With Cornette it's lose-lose. If you ignore him he keeps going and his followerbase keeps going because they see it as a win because you won't confront him about it so they think they've "got" you. If you engage they see it as a win because you're engaging him and giving him attention. That's why some people just openly last out at him now. At least when he refuses to go away again they can get the small satisfaction of dunking on him. It's the Piers Morgan effect.

    Dark Side of the Ring: Viceland docu-series

    That clip of his Mom debunking the Paul Boesch stuff was one of the deleted scenes they put on YouTube last year after the episode aired. Sounds like I'll have to give this a look since I don't recall any additional theories about his death making it onto YouTube last year. Rad!!

    Dark Side of the Ring: Viceland docu-series

    So Vice has been running old episodes of the show but also adding new deleted scenes that aren't even the YouTube ones which is kind of a bummer since it's been happening for a few weeks now so I've been missing most of them. But hey, heads up ya'll.

    AEW Revolution

    Yeah I sure did find out via 1998 and 1999 RAW signs that there were multiple sites on places like Angelfire and Geocities (still up thanks to the power of Internet Archive) that were dedicated specifically to how much women loved Edge. He was absolutely the hunk wrestler of that era.

    Good matches "ruined" by their endings

    I mean, to be real, it's because he's a funny dick and people love funny dicks. He can be very good when he's actually On (which tends to be with Gorilla Monsoon) but when he's paired with Vince it's the EXACT same style of bullshit bickering that has nothing to do with the match at hand that made people so mad when Renee and Corey did it on RAW and PPVs and I refuse to hear arguments to the contrary. I think the lack of footage has been a mega benefit to Jesse because he tends to be on much better behavior (with some exceptions because Vince post-like... 1986-ish or so on commentary sucks so much ass) on PPVs and Saturday Night's Main Event than he is on the weekly TVs, where he is incredibly boring. I say all this with lots of love in my heart for Jesse.

    Honestly Jesse Ventura's extended temper tantrum immediately after the match is what bugged me the most about Savage-Steamboat IMO. That was a prime time for both Gorilla and Jesse to shut up and let us enjoy the moment and almost immediately Ventura is going on and on and on and on and on. Steele running in to make sure Savage didn't do it again made total sense, especially after I watched the product from the 1986-87 timeframe on a weekly basis many years back.
