  1. Heck, I'm surprised that the Rock and Roll Express were able to get over in SMW, still essentially having the same look, in the mid-90s, the era of grunge.

    Under-the-radar wrestling book recommendations

    On a side note, the Internet Archive has some wrestling books on there. Many of them are the ones aimed at grade schoolers and such, but they also have some stuff like DDP's book, The Wrestlecrap book, Duggans book, etc. You do have to register, but that's free and easy.

    WWE Network... It's Here

    It's starting to feel like they dont really care about the Network anymore. Forget the smaller content drops, even the original content isnt that promoted as much. It's almost as if the FOX deal caused them to forget about it.

    All Elite Wrestling

    I wonder what time slot it'll be getting. Even though weekend tv is a ratings black hole, a Saturday show would still work, and might even draw in younger viewers and casuals channel surfing.

    "Triple H shoots himself in the foot" thread

    Triple H did make a similar joke about himself during the DX days ("Besides my kids being born, who I dont have, that I know of,,") but at least he was portraying himself as somewhat of a bufoon and it was at his own expense.
  6. They brought Savage up as a potential challenger for Slaughter in the Tunney interview on The Main Event, but that was the last we heard of it. I would have just had the match air on Superstars, but before they even make contact, have warrior run in and beat up Savage and cause the match to get thrown out, that way you keep the Savage/Warrior feud going and give both men some extra motivation.

    WWE Hidden Gems

    In England, they apparently had WWF Classics in the early 2000s which showed eps of Wrestling Challenge from 87-88.

    The length of wrestling shows & overkill

    I prefer the one hour format too, as you dont see the same wrestlers every week (so far, NXT and AEW have been ok about that with their two-hour shows, but who knows what the future will bring?), and it makes the show move faster. It's still possible to have angles develop on a one hour show, NXT had lots of good stuff like the "who attacked Alister Black" storyline which played out while still only one hour.

    WWE Hall of Fame 2020

    Actually, Batista wants Finlay to induct him.

    WWE Hall of Fame 2020

    I wonder who inducts them. Bischoff is likely out, so maybe Dibiase? As for my predictions for the rest of the HOF: Lex Luger Sable Vader Ozzy (Celebrity Wing) I can also see them giving Roman the Warrior award.

    WWE Hidden Gems

    With most current streaming services focusing more on price (ie, under ten dollars), having a higher priced tier would be a really bad idea (are there any streaming services that put content into a higher priced tier?).

    WWE Hidden Gems

    I'm thinking they may just split it into two, WWE Classics for all the classic content, and the core WWE Network for 2014-present footage.

    NWA Powerrr

    I'd like to see them take another aspect of old school wrestling and do music videos (more of a memphis thing, but other promotions did it as well). With Corgan you've got the entire Smashing Pumpkins catalog to pick songs from, and you could also use indie bands (therefore putting over the wrestlers and giving the bands some exposure).

    All Elite Wrestling

    I was just thinking, do you think AEW could succesfully market to a younger (ie, pre-teen) crowd? Guys like Darby, Luchasaurus, Jungle Boy, Orange Cassidy all have kid appeal, and they probably would dig the whole fast-paced style of the company.

    Best YouTube & Dailymotion Channels

    Here's an odd one I discovered, Carolina Wrestling Historic Archives. Though it's got some newer indie stuff, the thing that caused me to subscribe was the various episodes of ultra low budget indies from the 80s/90s.: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCnFw9yQDQK83SMlZ4WdKgFg There's also Plana Productions, which has some actually well-done "what if" videos (their newest one for example is what If Undertaker's Streak never ended) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LXCE0a1rG9I
