    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
  3. still think "Austin was supposed to win the title at Final Four" is the SK tale people believe the most for whatever reason

    Dark Side of the Ring: Viceland docu-series

    I definitely remember this being reported at the time. I think it was mostly Jim Ross's idea with Russo arguing "our audience doesn't know who Dr. Death is!" i do wonder if Austin would have sold for Regal here if it happened since they are so close in real life. Probably not but but it would have been interesting

    Is the empire crumbling before our eyes?

    Fightful reporting that Kevin Dunn didn't "get" Billie Kay and that could have been a factor in her release

    All Elite Wrestling

    Wow that's a damn good number. Actually shocked by that. Thought they'd obviously have an increase but not that much

    Now people can start getting mad at Johnny Ace in shoot interviews again

    Matches enhanced by their endings

    Just watched this today. Absolutely holds up. Michael Hayes pretty much looks the same today 39 years later. Benefit of eternally looking 47 I guess.

    WWE has become a heel-run promotion

    I mean I guess but after Hunter's reign of terror there was a near 10 year Cena reign on top where he beat everyone pretty routinely and if he lost he immediately got his win back

    WWE has become a heel-run promotion

    I was thinking this as well. They were so freaked out by Cena and Roman getting booed they just started going with heels on top so it would look better to the general public/media

    WWE has become a heel-run promotion

    Yeah since around 2013 the company has pushed the promotion as the main heel and the wrestlers pathetically have to go up against the system. Some weird dystopian/libertarian amalgamation

    Wrestlemania 37

    Yeah for those not watching what the hell is going on? I keep seeing people making TNA jokes for some reason
  15. Wrestling inc reporting that Adnan Virk will be replacing Tom Phillips as lead Raw announcer starting this Monday
  16. Stephanie was on Bill Simmons podcast and said Sasha/Bianca is headlining night 1
  17. Looks like Sasha/Bianca is going to close night one of Mania. yearly reminder that .Sasha has never won at Mania
  18. Newest Observer says there's been talk of Bayley doing her talk show at Mania
  19. I think I read that Becky and Ronda are supposed to return post Mania. If true this will be Ronda's first time without Heyman booking all her stuff. I think Heyman was behind a lot of Becky's run as well. Prichard seems to prefer the diva era booking

    WWE TV 03/29 - 04/04 It sucks to be Brazilian

    Holy shit that's legit surprising

    WWE announced that NXT is officially moving to Tuesdays and they've signed a multi year extension with the USA Network

    The aging of wrestling fans

    From what I gather I think the point is that it isn't that story doesn't matter in wrestling but it doesn't have to be a multi layered narrative that goes from point to point over episodic television. The story can just be " I want the title", "I want to see if I can beat you". the WWF of the 70s flourished with almost no big angles or stories under Vince Sr. Honestly a lot of of Hogan's biggest programs in the 80s didn't have a deep story behind them. Everyone just wanted to see him win.

    WWE TV 03/22 - 03/28 Roman never tapped

    Bryan recently gave an interview and said he really doesn't have much booking power on SD despite what's being reported online. So I guess everyone saying he pitched all those losses to Cesaro and Nak might not have been true after all

    Being reported Road Dogg suffered a heart attack on Thursday. Currently in the hospital

    The aging of wrestling fans

    Having Lacey being Becky's first big program after Mania turned out to be a huge mistake. Lacey lost every match and yet kept getting title shots well into the summer for some reason iirc, people criticizing Becky's Mania build were shot down with a bunch of "omg stop complaining, she's getting pushed isn't she?!? Isn't that enough!?What else do you want!?!?" type comments. Two years later it's obvious those criticisms were valid.
