    Dave Meltzer stuff

    I wrote into Dave asking him to consider not giving it rating as I'm sure others had to have as well, but he still basically did give it one. And one suspect's what kept it from being five stars was that the apron german was botched, not for the fact that at several other points in the match they were basically trying to hurt each other. Not really surprised since Okada-Shibata is his favorite match of all time, but only Bryan really took a hard stand there and said flat-out you cannot call it a good match. Another funny in-the-bubble moment this week is when he referred to the Avengers as "superstars"

    WWE Crown Jewel: No Girlz ALLOWED~!

    Would really love if they could do a deal where DC costs Brock the title before the fight instead, just for the massive intrigue it would generate along with wails from the post-Shamrock/Ortiz/Liddell era fans who think they follow a "pure" sport.

    Honestly, I shouldn't be surprised after she took responsibility for the Reid promo with Paige and everything, but..

    Dave Meltzer stuff

    The women collectively have more leverage now than any time in company history while they're in the spotlight amidst this PR campaign. They could organize with the support of other top stars who were very vocal today and put their foot down and decide no, we're NOT going to recite this awful promo written by a majority male writing staff, where Carmella is telling Charlotte and Becky she's better because she has a better body than them and doing the twirl on Smackdown. But this is apparently not the hill that either the women or men in the company want to die on.

    Dave Meltzer stuff

    Putting aside what he said for a second and that he was was not talking about her needing to lose weight, this is as good a view of how talent today is taught to think of Meltzer/WON as we're likely to get. Calling him a "parasite," "Sheep" (Nia Jax), "disgusting" (Beth Phoenix), "a piece of hot garbage' (Renee Young), meanwhile of course there's not and will not ever be one retweet of him sticking up for talent, especially the women on the roster after the disgraceful Saudi show, his criticism of the age-shaming and body-shaming angles over the last year, a wrestler's union...they don't actually read him or hear whatever second hand, and then shit like this is used to bash him as a journalist. Completely in bad faith on Bischoff's part. It's all fucking gross.

    He's a journalist that covers one of the most shallow, looks-based businesses in the world. It was weird that he answered the question about her attractiveness instead of leaving it at "that's neither here nor there." It shouldn't be that weird that he pointed out her massive implants which were, if you go by history, likely done at the company's pleasure in order to advance her career, have made the team look more generic.

    The pile-on by WWE personnel to show what good drones they are was amazing to watch just now, particularly Finlay calling Dave a "parasite" (Nothing problematic there, no!) and Bischoff retweeting for the lulz. And not one would publicly criticize anything done by the company, even as recently as the Nia Jax and Mickie James bullshit, and definitely not the Saudi contract which gave them their Evolution PPV while women activists are being jailed.

    From today's WOR, on the G1: "My favorite match, my personal favorite match, which is not even close to the highest rated match that I have, but my favorite match was the Okada and Tanahashi match on Friday. I just thought that that was wonderful...perfect pacing, great story, I never worried about anyone for one second, all I kept thinking is these guys are so freakin great, they're at a different level of...anyone...you can count on one hand the number of people that are on the level of these guys."

    I'm old enough to remember the ridiculous praise the Sasha-Charlotte HIAC botchfest with no heat got on this forum.

    All those things are basically reasons he gave for upping stars for the last Omega-Okada match though.
