    WWE TV 05/10 - 05/16 Is Man City gonna choke?

    Fightful now reporting Vega has returned to the company and was filming stuff today at the PC. Apparently she's been signed since before Mania

    Looks like she is headed back to the company

    I had no idea Pillman's car accident in early 96 was that bad. Iirc (and I believe it's mentioned in part 2) he tried to underplay the severity publicly as to not hurt his chance of getting a big contract with one of the big 2 i swear I remember him making a few appearances in ECW after the accident but uh, yeah, I don't think so

    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.
  8. 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
  9. True. although Scott really amps up the "on AEW's payroll" stuff to get the wwe diehards going
  10. 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
  11. 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.
  12. 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
  14. 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

    Is the empire crumbling before our eyes?

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

    Peyton Royce released as well

    Wrestlemania 37

    A fan who attended Wrestlemania has tweeted that he tested positive for Covid on Tuesday

    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
