No WWE content in this but a couple of cameos & someone finally breaks down the rules for a certain type of match:

"Part 1" - Being The Elite Ep. 199

As much as I want to see how things begin to form post-Mania, and as much as I want to see the Trips thing on SmackDown next week... I'm going to sit out on WWE stuff for a bit.  Even if the story about Vince going ahead with live shows (even with no crowd) isn't what they finally go for just rubs me the wrong way.  Might pop into the threads and still going to catch AEW on Wednesday unless I hear they're trying to pull the same crap.

The locker room is reportedly -not happy- with this decision.

A live crowd would be a terrible idea. If they are packed in, that's bad. If they are spaced out, the crowd energy isn't going to be right.

Obviously, they are losing out on ticket sales revenue, but in this day and age it just isn't worth the risk of causing a disease cluster.

Made it through three episodes of Big Show Show, fun little family comedy and always good to find shows I can watch with my mom.

Can't find it, but remember Ryback, or Ryberg? I saw a story earlier today, he was calling on all wrestlers to take a stand and refuse to work live shows. Seeing as how he is no longer with WWE, I doubt it would gather much steam. But while looking for that story, I came across another one that Florida's governor has classified the WWE as an essential business.

it's not a live crowd; "live shows" as opposed to "taped". The locker room is unhappy because it means they're flying from their homes to Orlando every week instead of taping several shows in one week as was the original plan.

I saw something about it might be how the contracts with the networks are written, only allowing 3 or so taped shows per year.

I think it was Trump that declared WWE as an essential business. The governor just got to pass on the news to the rest of us.

That makes sense considering Vince did get his head shaved and I guess Donnie is trying to make it up to him.

Ah. I totally misread that.

I don't mind the live shows, but the ability to pre-record bits has really made the shows better lately.

The entire premise of pro-wrestling is that it's a show about a pro-wrestling show. So whether it's live or not is not really a major factor when there's no one there to experience it as a live performance. They've used this to great effect with Wyatt vs Cena and even with that "fall" that Elias took from the podium.

Hell, the two best "matches" at WM were slick productions and not really live wrestling in the least.

I know Blood and Guts was put on the back burner, but have they made an announcement regarding double or nothing on May 23rd?

Well, seeing how not everyone goes to the Wednesday thread and they are doing three part to this week's BTE, I think I will post them all (two on Wednesday since there isn't a Tuesday thread). And yes, I knew you would comment on it.

I thought I'd like hardy in AEW but then I realized I really just can't stand that organization.  A bunch of WWE rejects and Indy spot monkeys who all think their shiat don't stink.  It may take some time but I do believe their own ego will be their downfall just like WCW and they'll become a TNA level company within 4-5 years.

I'll admit it's possible. 4 or 5 years is a long time in the entertainment biz, so I guess we'll see.

She took to Wrestling better than I thought she ever would.

That being said, the hamster in her wheel ain't running at full speed.  She ignored people when they tried to get her to dump her boxing coach.  She forgot that she was a Judo master and tried to stand with a kick boxer.   Holly Holm KTFO'd her.  She had a mental break down when Amanda Nunes beat her ass.  She played herself in Enterouge and couldn't make it believable.

However, the decision is driven by the fact that the WWE contracts with NBCUniversal and FOX to a limited number of taped shows per year.  Vince isn't willing to risk the networks wanting to negotiate the fees down, so he's putting the talent at risk.

That Holmes fight (and rematch) was the worst tactical plan I have seen in UFC in a long long time. If anything, she should have danced around of of range & forced Holly to come to her OR just charge in & fight in a phone booth (so to speak). But letting her just spam kicks was poor planning on every level.

I really hope they give the MitB cases to people who can use them for a launchpad this year, instead of giving it to someone who doesn't need the farking case to get a title shot.

Kane, Cena, Orton, Sheamus, Strowman, Lesnar. None of them need the case for a title shot. Hell, Cena used to get title shots by going "You beat so-and-so, BUT YOU'VE NEVER BEATEN ME SO YOUR TITLE REIGN IS MEANINGLESS!"

Because WWE owns 23.6% of the Class B stock in the XFL, which simply bolsters the case of the Oklahoma Firefighters Retirement Fund has filed against Vince and the WWE.

Ahhh, I misread it as Vince owned the shares not the WWE. Make more sense but still, mixing companies like that tends to lead to bad outcomes esp in Vince's world.

Aleister Black should definitely win Money in the Bank. That would be an intimidating man to have the briefcase.

Which means they'll probably give it to Rey Mysterio.
