  1. As an avid American sports-follower I can assure you this makes no more sense to me than it does to you. I guess the closest parallel is how the NFL splits up its TV rights between its two conferences for the Sunday afternoon games, with one network getting the rights to one conference and one to another, which goes back to when there were two separate pro leagues.

    Fuck, they used Hager about as well as possible. If he stays in his lane as a goon for Jericho, at least until he shows consistent improvement, I have absolutely no issues with him.

    I partially blame HHH and a.) his weird emphasis on "realism" and b.) his complete lack of knowledge of real sports.

    TV-14, baby! That was a terrific showcase for MJF, who is 100% into his character and knows how to wrestle like a complete and total prick. Everything old is new again.

    As soon as Jericho announced mystery partners, people were thinking LAX.

  7. Speaking as someone who has Herodes on ignore, it all seems like fair game to me. It's all public and it's all out there, and it's not 100% unrelated, either.
  8. Slim Jim, IIRC. It was one of numerous things he discussed on that infamous AoW.
  9. Or they can decide, as in the case of CM Punk, to simply deny him the commercial opportunity and then turn around and give them to somebody else (Cena, Big Show, Rey, and Eve Torres in his case).
  10. It never seems to occur to these people that the economy and businesses might actually be *helped* if the rank and file actually have spending money of their own. But how it affects those poor, helpless "job creators" at large is a red herring anyway. The simple fact is there are specific criteria laid out for what constitutes an "independent contractor" and WWE wrestlers meet every single one of them.
  11. Wow, THE Matt McEwen weighed on this to shoot it down? Amazing. Unprecedented. Wait...who is Matt McEwen again? I'm hearing directly conflicting info on whether this law is across-the-board or not, so I don't know what to believe. But some of the responses to Eric D. Anderson's tweets (the lawyer who Dave is RT'ing) do a more effective job of illustrating how WWE could argue against this law (like arguing that it's unconstitutional since it in theory regulates interstate commerce, which is under federal authority only). Edit: McEwen implies he spoke with an employment lawyer regarding this law. Which one? Who and when and where does he practice? I may be jumping to conclusions here but it sure sounds like Dave and Eric Anderson have had correspondence on this issue already and that Dave did in fact consult with him.
  12. Wrestlers in 1970 and indy wrestlers of today really were/are independent contractors. Ones under exclusive deals aren't anymore.
  13. I don't think this will kill indy wrestling in California, incidentally. Indy wrestlers are very much closer to being independent contractors than guys under contract to major promotions. There are also certain business size minimums (I think 24+ employees or more) that business would have to meet to be affected by this bill, which I don't think most indies qualify for.

    I agree with JRH, but isn't there a story of some shady-looking guys coming up to Bruno offering to "take care" of Zbyszko for him? And Bruno having to beg for the dogs to be called off and assure them that he'd handle Larry in the ring himself?

    Trying in vain to follow all these tap-dance-filled conversations has me on the verge of dying of an overdose of euphemisms. Someone let me know if some actual fucking facts come out.
