Has the Booker T/Big T lawsuit been settled yet? Why hasn't Booker T muted all previous mentions of the T and blurred out all previous writings of the T after his name?

I believe Booker was awarded all rights to "T" after he served his country with the Misfits In Action as "G.I. Bro".

No, he got punched by WWE Champion CM Punk.

The WWe will pay him 10 grand, Punk will be fined 10 grand and the E will have a ratings bump. They will also turn this into a CM Punk loose cannon angle. Millions made. Oh and stupid fanboy will have to sign an NDA.

It's amazing.

DBD "assaults" another talent as part of the gimmick and he gets fired.

Punk literally pops someone - which is the E's fault for not securing him properly - and no harm, no foul, here's your settlement, please we need Linda to win.

Oh BOY I hope DBD remembers this when it's time for his big angle against Punk.

It was still a biatch move on Punk's part to hit the guy, however it's just as much if not more of a biatch move to not hit Punk back and not press charges against Punk but instead consider suing WWE. People sure do love their celebrities.

If Punk as hit in the kidney, he probably started swinging. That is both dangerous and painful. To wit, I hit my ex wife sounds like a biatch move and makes me sound like an abuser. I hit my ex wife after she bit me on the forehead while I was asleep and I came up swinging is different.

Because don't think for 1 second that no matter how great DBD is, how much he makes any gimmick work, Vince won't go "Hey, why don't we have DBD's thing be losing at WM in less than a minute". He's capable of it, and I'm afraid that the Raw writer is seeing this right now and passing it on. Heck, look at what we have to deal with on the smackdown spoilers

That was exactly what I thought. I see his tag team defending their belts, Kane doing something that distracts DBD and he gets pinned in under a minute.
 
2012-10-10 02:17:39 PM  
Since Deadspin's video shows the dude hit Punk on the back of the head before getting popped, it'd be hard to sue Punk and win.

Since the WWE's own statement said they failed to provide adequate security, it will be less hard to sue them for failing to provide adequate security.

Unfortunately true.

One of my best friends used to wrestle and teach at APW back when DBD was there. He says that one of the great things about DBD's gimmick is that ti's really not much of a gimmick for him. He really did do all the 'YES! YES! YES!' and 'I'm better than you! I'm a vegan!' stuff for a laugh backstage. He's been perfecting this comedic schtick for years.

Daniels: Since Deadspin's video shows the dude hit Punk on the back of the head before getting popped, it'd be hard to sue Punk and win.


The article says that it isn't the dude's hand. And the slow-mo video shows somebody else's hand actually hits Punk.
 
2012-10-10 02:23:22 PM  
Also unrelated, was Monday night the first time Vince has gone over a wrestler like that? I know he did get the title once but usually in a match,the point is he gets his ass kicked bad, then cheats/uses interference/his power to get the advantage or win, or the face overcomes the odds. I don't recall a time where he goes toe to toe and looks better because honestly outside of the open, one would guess that Vince is the better wrestler and Punk got lucky for that short time he was ahead.

And they wonder why they can't get everyone over. Punk should have destroyed Vince in all aspects after maybe one lucky punch until Ryback came in.

Treygreen13: The article says that it isn't the dude's hand. And the slow-mo video shows somebody else's hand actually hits Punk.

Is it the TV Feed or the fan video someone sent Deadspin? The fan video it almost certainly looks like the same dude (albeit probably inadvertently) hit Punk in the back of the head. In the TV feed, it definitely looks like a different guy.

Not sure of the source, but it's at the bottom of the article in the link. In regular speed it looks like the guy has his arms up and then either gets bumped forward or brings them down on Punk. But when they slow it down you can see the guy in the white shirt behind the action reaches under the big guy's arms and pops Punk in the back of the head, and the guy standing back there just has his hands up. He moves forward a little when the guy in white pushes Punk, but he doesn't contact him at all.

It's at about :40 of the video in the article.
 
2012-10-10 02:33:52 PM  
Anyway, this kid is probably doing the right thing. Don't press charges, get a lawyer, get video evidence that you're not the guilty party. When you go to the WWE, see what sort of awesome perks you can get as an apology (including an opportunity to meet Punk who would probably feel bad knowing he hit the wrong guy) and if they don't want to roll out the red carpet, get your settlement and move on.
 
2012-10-10 02:35:01 PM  
Ah, OK. See it now. Wrong place, wrong time for that guy.

Daniels: Ah, OK. See it now. Wrong place, wrong time for that guy.

Yeah.

It looks like Punk doesn't really get a solid hit in on the guy. The backhand connects but it's really just a slap, and the 2nd shot is more of a push than a punch - plus the guy is already falling backward. Explains why the guy isn't injured in any way.
 
2012-10-10 02:44:08 PM  
At least someone got hit for real that evening.
 
2012-10-10 02:46:32 PM  
Vince should offer to make the fan a special guest referee at Punk's next title defense or make the fan acting RAW G.M. for one show and have him make Punk run the gamut of a dozen wrestlers.

She wrote, "fan telling #CBS13 that he is now considering getting an attorney for a possible lawsuit."
 
2012-10-10 03:16:59 PM  
I'm not saying he should automatically sue, but it's probably a good idea to have a lawyer present when talking to the WWE to help him look over anything they want him to sign, unless he wants to accidentally gain custody of Hand-teen or Heath Slater or something.

Ok, FWC, if this happened to you and you weren't really in the "I need lots of money" situation; what would you have WWE do. Basically Vince is willing to let you get through one idea that makes television, here are the cavets:
1) Vince can undo it later from continuity but it must happen
2) It can be attitude era, but it has to be something that could air on Raw
3) It can be a short-time push within reason over just one item/match/aspect or a "moment that must occur in 3 months or less"
4) Has to be something you can map out how it would happen (i.e. not bring back a dead person and laying them in the ring)

HHH/Steph come out and reintroduce Johnny Ace, who claims that he has scored his biggest talent get ever - Shane-O-Mac. Shane comes out, declares a new era for WWE. Vince interrupts, only to find out that Steph, HHH, and Shane combined their ownership stakes to buy out Vince, with Linda's blessing.

With Shane now in charge, he immediately announces all titles are vacated, and elimination tournaments will be setup to crown new champions, including Divas.

That's WCW Booking.

Titles don't become vacant just because someone new takes over. It devalues them. And in WWE, where the belts are already pretty much worthless, you don't devalue them further.

my lip balm addiction: Masterstuff: MattyFridays: It's amazing.

DBD "assaults" another talent as part of the gimmick and he gets fired.

Punk literally pops someone - which is the E's fault for not securing him properly - and no harm, no foul, here's your settlement, please we need Linda to win.

Oh BOY I hope DBD remembers this when it's time for his big angle against Punk.

I may be wrong, but wasn't the Nexus invasion in the midst of the Linda running for office/PG hoopla? It wasn't WWE who pushed for DB's firing, it was Mattel or some company like that. I mean, as soon as they could they brought DB right back and thrust him into a storyline in a PPV.


MattyFridays:
(seriously, is DBD/Kane going to be the payoff at Wrestlemania?)

DBD did what everyone who has ever heard Howard Finkel introduce a wrestler has wanted to do, and choked Justin Roberts with his own tie.

Maybe it's just me but I fail to see how Punk is the one in the wrong.

He's the top guy in the company right now and, because of how the storyline has gone, the most hated. WWE fans are uneducated trash (99% at least) who can't see "characters". Punk is a bad guy so they hate him. So the bad guy runs into the stands with the people that hate him and said morons start messing with him and basically assaulting him. One fan tries to grab the title from him and Punk slaps his hand away. Another guy shoves Punk from behind so Punk turns around and shoves him back. Then, some nameless, faceless asshat comes up from behind Punk and smacks him in the back of the head. Punk loses his cool (rightfully so) and turns around and clocks the person he thought did it. Was it the wrong guy? Yeah. Does that instantly make it wrong on his part? No. He fought back and there is nothing wrong with fighting back.

I liken it to this scenario: The Red Sox and the Yankees are playing for the AL Pennant and the game is in Boston with a heated crowd. A-Rod chases down a foul ball and leaps into the crowd to corral it. When he gets up and shows his glove, a Red Sox fan tries to knock the glove out of his hand. Another fan shoves him from behind. A 3rd fan reaches forward and smacks him in the back of the head. A-Rod, getting attacked by the people around him, turns around and decks someone. Is A-Rod in the wrong? No.

I'd do the same thing. You cheap-shot me in the back of the head I'm gonna turn around and clock someone.

Said fan needs to realize that Punk didn't intentionally mean to hit HIM, but that Punk was being assaulted by the people around him and simply fought back like any normal person would. If he has second guesses about what happened he can just watch the video he is in and see what happened and what led to it and say "Oh, well, I don't blame him then. I was just in the wrong place at the wrong time thanks to the jackasses around me."

Bam. Done. Story over.

You're right.

However, the kid might have a good case against WWE because they didn't have security in place with Punk to keep the fans off of him.

SearchN: globalwarmingpraiser: Owangotang: globalwarmingpraiser: If Punk as hit in the kidney, he probably started swinging. That is both dangerous and painful. To wit, I hit my ex wife sounds like a biatch move and makes me sound like an abuser. I hit my ex wife after she bit me on the forehead while I was asleep and I came up swinging is different.

/actually happened.

Yikes, that sounds like a bad night.

I married the crazy. I wo the custody fight though.

Mind telling me how? Don't want to thread jack so EIP but I do need some advice for a friend.


Email wouldn't go through.

The most important thing is to get a good lawyer, leave first, and take said child with you. It is easy to get away and immediately have the respondent served. As a male having custody immediately grants you control. Having a judge issue an OP to establish and maintain the status quo is the next move. This needs to be done ASAP. Be prepared to have some vacation time available during this so the mother can't take the child from your new domicile. Until status quo is established you have to be with the child. The mother can otherwise take control of the situation.'Plan ahead, be ruthless, and remember that if it is that bad, you're not parting as friends anyway.

I was thinking of what I would want to happen if I was hit by Punk. I think the bottom line is that it raises his heel level and I wouldn't be a dick about it (looking for some big pay day).

But I do think it would be fun to be inserted into a storyline where Otunga would be my "lawyer" and I am threatening to take everything Punk has to offer. John Cena would come up and sympathize with my situation. We strike a deal where I get to watch from ringside as Cena takes on Punk at the next PPV.

From there it could go as whatever the writers want: perhaps I can't take it anymore and have to punch Punk back and get Cena disqualified allowing Punk to keep the belt.

That's what I'd do and it would cost Vince no money. But I'll never be punched by a WWE wrestler.

True. You'd be punched by a WWE SuperstarTM.

Actually, Otunga being Punk's lawyer might be a fairly good way to help his heelishness.

TheManofPA: NotEric: I'm not saying he should automatically sue, but it's probably a good idea to have a lawyer present when talking to the WWE to help him look over anything they want him to sign, unless he wants to accidentally gain custody of Hand-teen or Heath Slater or something.

Ok, FWC, if this happened to you and you weren't really in the "I need lots of money" situation; what would you have WWE do. Basically Vince is willing to let you get through one idea that makes television, here are the cavets:
1) Vince can undo it later from continuity but it must happen
2) It can be attitude era, but it has to be something that could air on Raw
3) It can be a short-time push within reason over just one item/match/aspect or a "moment that must occur in 3 months or less"
4) Has to be something you can map out how it would happen (i.e. not bring back a dead person and laying them in the ring)
What would you choose WWE? What would you choose?


So many "long term" answers but for quick answer: hire Flair and have him assemble a new 4 Horsemen on Smackdown w/ Rhodes, DiBiase, and two others and groom Rhodes to be one of the future stars.

And on that thought, no more throwing World Titles on guys (Seamus/Punk first runs/ Swagger) and expecting them to run with the ball. (Hell, Khali can't even run.) One of the things that annoyed me was when Russo got to WCW, gave the title to Jarret and said on TV, "See, he's championship material." The belt doesn't legitamize the main eventer; the main eventer legitamizes the belt.
