    Bobby Heenan RIP

    I see multiple people discussing here, I don't see just one person. So let's not try to scapegoat people here. As I've been saying, if you give someone enough time, you will find something they don't agree with. It turns out that everyone is human and has flaws. Warrior has made some comments people don't like. Heenan took part in a group bullying and public shaming campaign. Two wrong's don't equal a right and in the end, everyone has flaws, but that's being human.

    Well I know for sure Heenan never mocked Warrior in any way, nor took any part in a DVD that solely meant to shame someone for cash, nor attacked the guy in his own interviews: Are we saying that group bullying and public shaming is okay? Sounds to me like Heenan doesn't deserve the right to speak either. This is what happens when you start trying to take down people you don't agree with. Eventually, the arrow will turn to you and it will be your turn to get taken down. Free speech has consequences. Actions have consequences. The consequences of Warrior being unprofessional to Heenan lead to him being mocked. Heenan's consequence for the mocking was that Warrior had bad things to say about him even when no one else did. The consequence of you pulling this particular shit in the Bobby Heenan RIP thread of all places is that I am going into my settings and putting you on my ignore list and that I am suggesting every single other person on this board does the same (up by your name, then Manage Ignore Pref). So you've got the right to speak. I've got the right not to listen. So does everyone else. So what will be the consequences for Heenan then? He did take part in group shaming, harassment and group bullying for cash. Or are we just going to let that go? I'm all for rules and laws, but I expect them to apply equally to everyone. Heenan was no saint. Warrior was no saint. They were both just human like the rest of us. It sounds to me like the rest of it is a "you problem". Again, keep trying to shun and silence people you don't agree with. You'll fall by your own sword in time, because not everyone will agree with you on everything. I'm not going to be blocking you though. This is a discussion forum and if you can't handle people who think differently than you do, I don't know why you are here.

If "he can't talk because he has views I don't agree with" is the standard, then in the end, no one will be able to talk if you want to be fair. It turns out that everyone is human, everyone says things that not everyone agrees with and everyone is eligible to be deemed offensive at times.

    This is one of the most tone-deaf things I've seen here, in the most inopportune moment. Know when to pick your battles. I'm definitely going to pick the "people who don't agree with me have no right to speak" battle.

    Warrior didn't like him and said he was a trouble maker. I know someone's gonna say "but it's the Ultimate Warrior", but I think the Warrior is a lot smarter than what people give him credit for. He got in, got big, stood up to Vince, got out of wrestling and got Vince to praise him in the end. Ah, fuck Ultimate Warrior. Like anyone should care about what a Fucking homophobic dummy has to say. So because he has views you don't agree with he doesn't deserve the right to his freedom of speech? What a ridiculous strawman. No one said he had no right to his freedom of speech. Just that others have a right to not give a fuck about him and his opinions because of his views. You can try to claim strawman all you want, but you are saying "because I don't agree with his views, his views mean nothing and he can't speak". What you will eventually find out is that no one's going to agree with you on everything and you will soon be hanging from the same rope you want to hang others from.

    Is TNA the worst wrestling promotion in history?

    Yep. He's made it very clear he's never going back to Canada due to the incident last time and really, why should he? He can cut a promo from his living room and he only does limited appearances anyway.

    Impact is back and GFW is gone. Good thing we didn't change the thread lol

    What can you say. One of the best color commentators, managers and personalities of all-time. He created and perfected the heel color commentator role. He was in the main event of the most iconic wrestling show of all time and managed a whole roster of Hall of Famers. When you think wrestling manager, he's likely the first person to come up. I always thought WWE and other promotions were incredibly stupid not to try and sign him and Gene after WCW had folded. I don't know what kind of role he could have played in the WWE Ruthless Aggression era, but if anyone could have figured it out, it would have been The Brain. Losing him is very sad for wrestling and him having voice issues truly was one of wrestling's biggest losses. Bobby should have been out there with Cornette doing shows and sharing his wisdom with us for decades.

    Master List of All Pre-70s Footage

    Gotch/Hackensmidt 2 is out there somewhere. It was released on film. But no one has found it.

    Dave Meltzer stuff

    Andre/Hogan was actually GOOD. That's the worst part. The match made sense. Hogan tries to slam Andre and hurts his back. So Andre works the back before Hogan finally slams him to win. Real simple stuff.

    There's no lack of celebs in LA. There's tens of thousands and you know if a celeb wants to come, PWG's gonna bend over backwards to get them in. Everyone in LA sees celebs at some point. Now there's a lack of celebs in the middle of PA here or in Alabama and drawing celebs in those places would be impressive.

    I don't think drawing 400 people in LA is impressive. I think not being able to draw 400 people in LA is impressive, because it's such a massive place that is near other top 50 markets. In the middle of Pennsylvania, we can draw 400 people to a show no problem. People like Dave really push how amazing it is that PWG can sell out 400 seats, but will completely ignore than the WNBA can draw 7,000 in LA, and that is the opposite of hot.

    Maybe, maybe not. PWG would like us to think they can and many people are willing to buy that story, that's for sure. Shire drew triple that in LA/SF when his territory was closing and that wasn't even enough to be worthwhile back then with a lot less people. I think not being able to sell out 400 seats in LA is more impressive than being able to.
