    Comments that don't warrant a thread - Part 4

    Always wondered about the Nasties in early 93. The WWF was clearly building to a Nasty Boys/Money Inc match at WM 9 before Hogan coming back changed plans. Do the Nasties take the titles if they had stayed course or were they leaving anyway?

    Is the empire crumbling before our eyes?

    Aleister Black said Vince liked him. Liked him so much that he stopped your push multiple times and just fired you after being off TV for like a year. that damn Johnny Ace

    A holiday but Raw did its worst ever rating on Monday. 1.168 (!) million viewers in the third hour

    AEW Double or Nothing 2021

    Meltz says it looks like the show did a good number (going off streaming numbers)

    WWE-NJPW working relationship in the works

    I guess but it doesn't feel like a 100 percent committed push. I mean he was doing a bunch of jobs to midcard guys before Mania to guys like Cesaro and Nak. i think when the vow guys are talking about push they mean like Cena/Roman level. Not a guy that moves up and down the card and does a good amount of jobs. Although I guess wwe doesn't have many of those guys today

    WWE-NJPW working relationship in the works

    The guys at Voices of Wrestling always mention this but it's weird how WWE is going through all these acrobatics trying to re-sign Bryan when it's a guy they really seem to not even want to push. I know it's to keep him from the competition but I can't really think of a scenario like this before
  8. Cardi B is hosting Summerslam apparently

    WWE-NJPW working relationship in the works

    looking deeper into this it does indeed look like the company trying to gain leverage with Bryan so he will re-sign and not go to AEW
  10. I see people talking more about Nick Khan more than any wwe wrestler or storyline at the moment. He seems to be the most over person in the company right now with wwe diehards. i mean I just saw a report that he bought a mansion recently. This was big news I guess
  11. Fightful reporting wwe has released Tom Phillips
  12. Virk was a Nick Khan hire so this was Khan's first real swing and a miss since joining the company.
  13. Adnan Virk is out as Raw play by play guy. That was quick.

    WWE TV 05/17 - 05/23 Cesaro just had to bend the knee!

    Miz tore his ACL during the zombie match on Sunday. Although they are hoping its not a full tear

    WWE TV 05/03 - 05/09 Big Roman made little Bryan humble.

    Meltzer is saying that WWE is pushing hard to re-sign Bryan. if he re-signs with a huge contract it probably means he'll get pushed in the main event scene even stronger to justify the big money. Well you would think that anyway

    Eva Marie also seemed to have terrible timing. I think it was around 2014 where she was going to get a push but one of her implants burst and she got an infection or something. Then in summer 2016 when getting her big push on SD she failed a drug test and was suspended. Then let a go a few months later IIRC

    Comments that don't warrant a thread - Part 4

    Just realized tonight that Brian Pillman Jr. is a dead ringer for Johnny B. from the Jerky Boys. At least to me. And I just realized I probably really dated myself with that reference (Jerky Boys not BPJ)

    Under-the-radar wrestling book recommendations

    Haven't read the book but Dave said Hart got mad at him because Meltz was pitching to turn Muta babyface and Hart was dead set against it.
  20. I would say the majority of posters there don't even like Scott that much. It's just a place to talk wrestling. As alluded to any current product discussion usually just ends in AEW v WWE circular type arguments with various insults hurled. But like Pete mentioned the retro reviews can lead to some good discussion and everyone is pretty well behaved in those type threads
  21. True. although Scott really amps up the "on AEW's payroll" stuff to get the wwe diehards going
  22. The WWE diehards at .Scott's site seem to fall for it every time. Anytime AEW is even slightly praised or even mentioned they blow a gasket. Obviously that's why he keeps doing it
  23. I can remember "binge reading" Scott's rants in the computer lab in between classes in college. We're talking like 1999 here. Hard to believe 22 years later he's basically churning out the same exact stuff with pretty much no difference in style despite how much the wrestling business and online world has changed since then.
  24. Apparently the person fired was Mark Carrano

    Dark Side of the Ring: Viceland docu-series

    Well I meant sell for him during a whole program not just in a match or isolated segments
