  1. Well, it was clear to me who was carrying whose sorry ass in that GCW main event. I don't have an issue with Gage being a former bank robber but as a fundamental worker he's painful to watch (and I'm not talking about the gore, I mean like how his sorry ass apparently doesn't even know how to execute running the ropes).

    AEW Dynamite - July 7th, 2021 - On The Road Again

    I mean, Cornette probably has lots of strong opinions on comics too, but wrestling wasn't just his hobby, it became his livelihood and the livelihood of many of his friends.

    I feel like WrestleMania IV-V is Hogan at his physical peak. It was definitely Savage at his.

    R.I.P. The Patriot (Del Wilkes)

    The point stands but I think that's an inversion--my understanding is that when Super Astros started they wanted everyone except Santo to unmask.

    I 100% bought into Patriot as a star thanks to Global, and I think Wilkes came along at the wrong time. Had he broken in a few years earlier, when the domestic scene wasn't on its ass and the money was better in All-Japan, I think Vince would have had great success with him.

    R.I.P. The Patriot (Del Wilkes)

    He had done an interview with Sean Ross Sapp that was going to run on the 4th of July (and still will), where he talked among other things about how much he'd like to punch Tom Brandi in the face.
  7. It's really not, though. We know Vince has done product-altering stuff to spite people before (moving JR to Smackdown, and not telling him until he was drafted on the air) and I have a hard time not believing that Rusev didn't "deserve" Lana.
  8. Why can't it? The idea that McMahon may be more interested in orchestrating breakups than actually booking a fucking wrestling/"entertainment" program may be part of what makes him brain damaged and out of touch.
  9. Again, regarding Kenice Mobley: that they hired an outsider unfamiliar with the product beforehand is sort of a red herring here. If you've been on the scene for a month or more and you still don't know the name of the top guy on your show, that's a problem. Apparently there was talent that wasn't too happy about that "Bobby Ashley" line, and I don't blame them.
  10. It wasn't so much that, I don't think, as it was the line, "Our World Champion is Bobby Lashley or Ashley or something."

    I still think Bobby should have been coached to say, "I never thought I'd actually be happy to see him."

    "If it's leading up to Luger having to figure out a way to get one last shot even though the stip says he can't get another shot at Flair Yokozuna? That's long term storytelling I can get behind." --No one ever. Also, you need to do better than having a fucking distraction roll-up in a HIAC match if the goal is for McIntyre to get screwed and then find a way around it.

    No, Tunney's announcement did not air on TV prior to Survivor Series--not on USA and not in syndication. The Showdown episode just teases that Savage will be there without stating outright that he'd be wrestling or not wrestling.
  14. This clears up something that's confused me about some of the Japanese results that are online, which referred to a German suplex as something that seems to translate to "atomic bomb hold." That could be the difference between that an an atomic drop, which I recall still being an atomic drop in Japan (except for the inverted atomic drop, which is called a "Manhattan Drop" because Adrian Adonis apparently was the first one to do it in Japan). These obscure (to us) European and South African foreigners are the most fascinating parts of this history lesson to me. The Catchfans Facebook group produced a program from Sweden which featured Anton Laszlo among other more familiar '70s Europeans and that and this one IWE tour appear to be the only recordings of him in wrestling at all.

    It wasn't a squash or clean, but even with the photographer it was about as decisively as Hogan had ever been beaten. He can't slam Yokozuna, Yoko kicks out of the legdrop, and Yoko pins him with his own move. Then beats him up some more after the match. There was just enough there to protect Hogan for a possible return on the Intrepid but it also served as an effective way to write him off, which is what happened.
