Looks like we are getting Apollo vs MVP (non-title though).

So with the NWA TV champ getting released, you think Vince puts the world title on him tonight, or build a feud so he can reign triumphant on PPV?

Supposedly Tessa has already talked to Vince and her non-compete expires tomorrow.
 
2020-06-29 7:40:52 PM  
..or rather her contract expires tomorrow.. dunno how long her non-compete is for

If contracts expire, I'm pretty sure the no-compete is different than if they're released, otherwise it'd be 90 days, but yeah, with no Becks or Rousey or Charlotte long term, Tessa is pretty much a lock.

It's more of he is going to be on the mic a lot but if/when the right story pops up, he can go back to wrestling. I think it's a good way to let him have a longer career.

You know what?  You're right.  At this point I'm just exhausted by it all.  Whatever movement going on is being twisted and perversed into something completely different.  I understand that something's are insensitive, and can be hurtful to groups of people.

I also see how people can get butt hurt over the slightest little things,a feighn outrage for the attention and fake internet points. Not everything is against you.  History can be observed within it being erased.

I could see it as that. I rode it when it first got put in. The line was long as heck but we happened to decide to ride it again before leaving. It just happened to be when the Electrical Parade was getting read to start, so the line was really short. By the time we got done, the line was non-existent so we jumped in it two more times before it closed.

EqualOpportunityEnslaver: The Bestest: isamudyson: Can we just have a "chop-off" between Show & WALTER? Not chopping each other, they could use some of the "PC trainees" to slap on.

Careful.. you may end up summoning Khali

Has he started his Royal Rumble entrance already so as to hit the ring on time?


One night they both wrestled Becky in singles matches and the difference was so painfully obvious, it was quite sad.

I assume it's because he's willing to work (and for cheap) during a pandemic

He was originally supposed to be a road agent but I guess Vince liked what he saw and he still has a name lapsed viewers will remember.

Part of me feels Rick O'Shea v Lashley would be better on impact, but Lashley can really choose to turn it on and off like few I've seen the last few years.

These threads have gone from 200-300 posts to just barely over 100. And that's the 3 hour show. Because of Covid, and the lack of performers, it's essentially the same show week after week. They (RAW and Smackdown) used to be fun to watch, now, at best, they're just background noise while I do other stuff.

These threads have gone from 1,000-2,000 posts weekly to where we're at now (and we even cracked 5,000 for Mania once.) This is a far cry from the fWc glory days, and given the tedious nature of the programming right now, at least some of that is easily understandable.

You're 100% right. At least Florida considers Wrasslin an essential business.

Well, that's it for RAW. Tomorrow is DARk on YouTube for a wrestling fix & Wednesday has NJPW back in action in the AM with NXT/AEW in the night slot. 

/Don't forget NJPW is free Friday morning to watch
//also that night is the Lion's Break:Collision event after SD is over

Longtime wrestling fan here. I'm 41. Grew up on Hulk, Savage, Warrior, etc. College, for me, was the Attitude Era. I was in some of those Gredunza threads as well.

I tuned out wrestling the second CM Punk left. I've just started to get back into it because there's so little sports on, but a three-hour Raw plus Smackdown plus NXT plus countless PPVs.

I hate to sound like get off my lawn guy, but the major criticism I have of WWE is that there are way too many PPVs. Back in the day when you had only 4 PPVs (Rumble, Wrestlemania, Summer Slam & Survivor Series), you had no choice but to tell the story as well as possible to build to a PPV.

Now it just seems like a bunch of storylines thrown together & hope they stick for the PPV. Honestly, the mid-card would do way better with fewer PPVs. Jake The Snake was really a mid-card card guy, but he was so good at carrying a story that he became a legend without holding a belt. Same goes for guys like Ted Dibiase or Rick Rude. They were never truly main event talent, but they had time to build a story arc so it felt bigger than they really were.

I've been lamenting the PPV glut for over 20 years due to the way it truncates all the story telling. When you've only got three weeks to build a feud there isn't any real reason to invest in it as a fan. And despite what WWE clearly thinks, more segments on every program related to the same storyline does NOT successfully build that story the same way that 8-12 weeks of spread out segments do.

Get back to the old system of 1 segment per show per feud, with more total stories going on, and get these guys and gals in the ring for actual matches (Covid strangeness notwithstanding.) If your workers aren't WORKING, how do you expect to ever build new stars so that the "Big 4" PPVs aren't just crammed full of old-timers limping through drawn out garbage matches (ie Taker, Hunter, Goldberg, Lesnar, Edge, etc.)
