    Comments that don't warrant a thread - Part 4

    He was initially suspended, and had always had discipline problems going back to his "too much, too soon" singles push as a teenager. I don't know the specifics of his 1988 departure but there was definitely something that triggered it. Edit: According to the '88 Observers, Tama quit in solidarity with Sika being let go, as apparently the Anoi'as were very much on the outs with Vince at the time.

    The Nash/Hall split was 100% a Hogan power play, nothing more. Any benefit to curb Hall's drinking was purely accidental.
  3. Sting having to leave for rehab/personal issues came at the end of '98, when Bret Hart takes him out at Havoc. This departure was caused by WCW using up all (almost all) of the contracted dates for the year--I'm not sure when Sting signed his contract but it was doubtless before Nitro was a thing, and they didn't anticipate using him as much as they did when they agreed on that limit. The initial plan was only to get through the end of '96 but then it obviously just kept going.

    May be a false alarm.

    What is the Super J-Cast and would they know about this?

    Wrestling in unusual contexts

    Creating "buzz" might work for a weekly show (wrestling or otherwise), but I don't know how a live incident that many people wouldn't and didn't see until after the fact is supposed to juice TV ratings. People thought Steve Harvey reading the wrong beauty contestant name was a work too--that was a big story for like a week and by next year's pageant it was forgotten about.
  8. Ratings and PPV buys were in the tank when DX was running roughshod over television. It was Tyson and Austin who turned that around, not DX.

    AEW TV - Week of 3/16

    Just updating Matt Sydal specifically, he dislocated his knee a few weeks back so he's out for a bit (no ligament tears, fortunately).

    It would behoove MJF to have Wardlow win the title, though. He still owns his contract and I don't see him just letting him out of it.

    AEW TV March 9/11 - Post Revolution

    I didn't think it was a great show, but it mostly flew by. Wardlow's promo was a highlight. Britt's was a lowlight--just an absolutely awful reaction to the cage match stip, and a rehash of her promo from a few weeks ago.

    As someone who's barely ever watched ROH I figured it out after Excalibur explained it. And I knew Punk was "going back to his roots" going by his promo a few weeks ago where he went back into the "I'm straight edge, which means I'm better than you" bit. If a Luddite like me who abhors hearing, "Well, it makes sense if you watch BTE" can get it, anyone can.

    AEW Revolution 2022

    Callis showing up on the Buy-In had me thinking otherwise, though. Even his repeated denials that Omega was in the building seemed like a tease of the opposite happening.

    There hasn't been an "...is #AllElite" graphic for Redbeard yet so, yeah, it seems like he's only in because they were expecting Fenix to be back and he isn't ready yet.

    The All Things Cody Thread

    Now Dave has dropped the "plans changed" bomb. Apparently creative was told last night of a "definite change in Cody/WWE status." That's suitably vague as Dave does so well, but apparently on The Board he clarified that as of now, there's uncertainty that he's coming in.
