Hi all! looks like WWE got tired of not having a "developmental" brand (wonder what ever happened to it) and bought EVOLVE. "Word" is they got all the trademarks, equipment, tape library, etc. The only thing they didn't get was the contracts for the talent but I am sure they will offer them all new ones...at greatly reduced amounts.

Probably not going to be in-thread tonight.  Heat's been getting to me in the past few days, and I'm finally starting to get better (remember to stay FARKING hydrated, kiddos!), but I'm going to take some extra rest.  Catch you punks around.

Since Le Batard is on vacation, I watched some wrestling on DVD to fill that time.

AJPW Tsuruta/Tenta v Brody/Bubba Rogers- had no idea Rogers had an AJPW run and Brody selling for Tenta was pretty surreal.

6 pack challenge US title Kingston, Miz, MVP, Swagger, Primo and Carlito- I forgot how awesome fun MVP and Swagger's entrances were. Non-stop actions and a few fun stories going on throughout.

Bret Hart v Tiger Mask II- had high hoods, pretty good, but still a meh.

Hart v Savage Piper special ref- Piper letting them go at it with no real rules, Hart's heel mannerisms, Liz bouncing to the ring. Kind of sad to see how deteriorated Savage was by 98 though.

Cena/Hart v Jericho/Edge interesting setup to get Jericho on team WWE, too bad Samoa Edge screwed it up by jumping too soon, but whew what a hot crowd for that. Wonder what it will take to get that kind of reaction again.

Matt landed Bo Derek?

Yes, Micheal Cole, surely the most important question is to ask about his feet.
 
2020-07-03 8:08:39 PM  
So Riddle is basically Mr. Deeds?

Also...

Any new names you think we should look to show up in NXT any time soon? Curious who to keep an eye out for and you seem to have a pretty good feel for all things wrasslin'.

"Disparaging the name of the Undertaker!"
Taker's matches the last 5 years have done that all on their own.

"What is your problem with Riddle?"
"You mean other than the fact that he's a suspected rapist, Maggle?"

Honestly, I haven't watched enough EVOLVE to know. It was in ITPV and I only pay for NJPW online. I'll may do some research this weekend. But off the top of my head, I would look for someone like Warhorse or maybe even they try & take a flyer on Danhausen. But I think a lot of the better indie guys have been showing up on AEW DARK. There are a couple of others but they are people I highly doubt the WWE would give a contract to.

(BTW, Brian Pillman Jr. was at Fyter Fest in the ringside crowd, so maybe he's gonna do something there)

Allegedly, they have know about the Riddle situation since 2018 and he gave them copies of messages from his phone. Not saying he's innocent either but you would think they looked into it.

Cool. It just seems to me like there's a big ol' opening for babyfaces behind Keith Lee and no one to fill them. I think Ciampa's turning heel, Dream seems to be going away for a bit, Balor has no momentum and is more of a tweener...

They had a show in Indy, unfortunately it was indy 500 weekend last year, but the main was Cole v Ohno and I was told by people who went not a lot of top-notch talent not already signed, but maybe they knew it was a bad weekend to run and didn't bring the best of the roster.

WWE's track record on "looking into allegations" against their talent is as clean as Jeff Hardy's driving record. Or a piss test he may have taken, for that matter.

I knew WWE was sending some of their guys to work Evolve shows so yeah, wasn't really sure what the roster actually looks like.

Fair enough, but my read on it is that they must feel a heck of a lot more comfortable in Riddle's innocence than they do with Velveteen Dream (who hasn't been on TV in a couple of weeks) or the NXT UK guys (several of whom they just outright released) or he wouldn't still be on screen.

It might sound odd but maybe AEW needs to look into a "feeder" deal with some of the smaller promotions. They don't need it now, but at some point it could be good to have it.

I wonder what other obvious difference Vince might see between Riddle and Dream that would influence his decision?

You would think now would be the time to make the deals considering how bad a lot of smaller promotions are probably doing financially at the moment.
