THE DIRT SHEET THREAD: THE LATEST FROM MELTZER AND MORE (16TH MARCH '17) by Nunzio - Wed, 15 Mar 2017 23:10:16 EST ID:FO9lKfKL No.5664349 Ignore Report Quick Reply

The first few posts are from this week's Wrestling Observer Newsletter.
Dave Meltzer's star ratings will be posted in this thread
Use this thread to post news as it comes through.

> Anthem the parent company of Impact, and ITV, have reached a deal. We don’t know of all the details at this point, the working plan is to start a weekly television show on ITV that will air at 5 p.m. Saturdays, starting in July. The plan is to tape shows from 5/25 to 5/27 in the U.K., taping ten or 11 one hour shows. ITV has committed to a short run in that time slot, and would then make a decision on continuing based on ratings. While the original idea was for an ITV-run promotion, the decision was made, similar to how wrestling worked on the network during its run in the same time slot during the 60s, 70s and 80s, that they would use an existing promotion as a content provider. The promotions suggested were Impact and What Culture, and the decision was made to go with Impact. Both ITV and Anthem are looking at Jim Ross as the lead announcer for the ITV show, as he did the pilot. Right now does not have a deal for the full-time show but they are in talks.

> A lot of times people talk about how there’s no long-term planning but the WrestleMania 34 main event for April 8, 2018, which obviously could change, is set for Lesnar vs. Reigns for the Universal title. That doesn’t necessarily mean Reigns is beating Undertaker or that Lesnar will have a full one year run as champion, although both could happen. I have no idea of what the finish will be of Undertaker vs. Reigns. The goal is very much to make Reigns the next Cena, which was the plan for Santa Clara two years ago, until they decided to delay it based on fan reaction. The plan is to once again build for a year and have the big coronation at WrestleMania. The idea between now and then is for Reigns to be the face, not just when he wins the title, but to fully replace John Cena as the lead babyface of the company.

> Goldberg’s contract expires at WrestleMania but the run was considered a success and the door is open to use him for big shows in the future.

> Big Show vs. Shaquille O’Neal is off. It should be noted that O’Neal showed a photo of himself and he, in fact, was in great shape, so the idea that he hadn’t trained and was out of shape as Show had been saying wasn’t the case. It was very clearly a financial situation since negotiations had been continuing and they hadn’t agreed on a price. One would think that should have been done, and maybe it was done and one side or another changed, when they shot the angles for the match at last year’s WrestleMania and at the Espy Awards in 2016. But Show was confirmed as being in the Battle Royal.

> As of 3/14, there were 317 tickets left out of about 55,000 seats for sale at the Citrus Bowl on the primary market but thousands of tickets left on the secondary market. Raw, Smackdown, Hall of Fame and NXT are now all sold out on the primary market. Secondary market tickets start at $109 for seats that were priced at $160, so supply is greater than demand when it comes to the least expensive seats. There are several front row seats available with the cheapest being $6,300.

> Konnan on his podcast claimed that AAA was trying to get Halloween, Damian 666 and Mr. Aguila to come in so they would be able to use the Perros Del Mal name that they were claiming ownership of and have it at least be seen as legit, since those were among the original members

> Vampiro was named Head of Talent Relations for Lucha Underground. The last we heard that job was going to Dorian Roldan. With Vampiro’s promotion in AAA, it feels like AAA and Lucha Underground are working more closely together, and that questions how it impacts Pentagon and Fenix for next season

> Regarding the dealings with The Crash, Konnan said that Anthem is going to help them get television deals outside of Mexico

> Gail Kim has been out of action with a back injury. She was hoping to start back over this past weekend but wasn’t ready, but right now is tentatively scheduled to return at the next set of tapings in early April. It should be noted that her contract here has expired so she is a free agent at this point, but on Twitter she pretty much said she was expecting to return

> NXT will also be part of the Download Festival and they are building a European tour around those appearances. They will be at Download from 6/9 to 6/11, and preceding that, have dates on 6/5 in Aberdeen, Scotland, 6/6 in Manchester at the Arena, 6/7 in Leeds and 6/8 in Brighton

> Right now the plan is for Nakamura to debut on the main roster very shortly. I’m not sure what date it will be, but the likely scenario is he loses to Bobby Roode at Takeover and starts immediately after, with Raw after WrestleMania being a good bet. There are others who may be brought up as well. Asuka is likely not one of them because the posters for the U.K. tour are built around Roode, Asuka, Kassius Ohno, Dillinger, Aleister Black and Sanity

> Dwayne Johnson in a message to Eric LeGrand said that he was trying to get to Orlando for WrestleMania. He’ll be in the middle of heavy promotion for “Fast 8, The Fate and The Furious” at that time

> Rusev will be out of action for about two months due to surgery on his left shoulder which I believe was on 3/9, although it was confirmed it was this past week. That continues the shoulder epidemic in the company. He’s been needing the surgery for some time and I guess it couldn’t go any longer since the timing of it, where he’d be off the biggest payoff show of the year, couldn’t be worse. That’s why Show squashed him so badly at Fast Lane and why they broke he and Mahal up for no reason without doing a feud. That’s also why Lana did a match in Florida a week ago

> Women have been contacted for a new WWE tournament for the Network. This was the one originally set for January through March, but moved back when WWE prioritized the U.K. tournament due to the ITV television show. Talent has been called about clearing their calendars for a first round of tapings in the latter part of May

> Io Shirai (Masami Odate, 26), who is one of the two or three best woman wrestlers in the world right now, is in Orlando at this writing as part of a WWE tryout. In her case, this isn’t so much a tryout as her being there to do drills as WWE has been after her for months. But unlike the others at the tryout, the ball is in her court on whether to accept the offer or not. Unlike Kairi Hojo, who as noted last week has already signed her three-year contract, Shirai was invited to Orlando to check things out and then decide what she wanted to do.

> There has been a lot of talk around wrestling over the past few weeks that Jim Cornette will be the one to induct the Rock & Roll Express into the WWE Hall of Fame on 3/31. Some will be surprised about Cornette being at a WWE function, but I’m not in the least as he wasn’t going to turn down being part of honoring the team. Neither the WWE nor Cornette would confirm or deny the story

> With little in the way of new non-wrestling programming and the Foley series evidently running its course, the top ten most-watched shows on WWE Network for the week were: 1. Bring it to The Table w/Kurt Angle interview; 2. Fast Lane; 3. NXT from 3/8; 4. WrestleMania 30; 5. Ride Along with Zayn, Neville and Rollins; 6. 205 Live; 7. WrestleMania 32; 8. Talking Smack; 9. WrestleMania 31;p 10. Royal Rumble 2017

> The WWE’s annual stockholders meeting will be on 4/20, and with the retirement of Joe Perkins, who has been on the Board of Directors since 1999 and been affiliated with the WWWF since the 70s, the board members will be Vince McMahon, 71, the CEO and Chairman of the Board; Stephanie McMahon Levesque, 40, the Chief Brand Officer; Paul Levesque, 47, the Executive Vice President of Talent, Live Events and Creative; Stuart Goldfarb, 62, Patricia Gottesman, 58, Laureen Ong, 64, Robyn Peterson, 41, Frank Riddick, 60 and Jeffrey Speed, 54.

> Besides Vince, Stephanie and Paul Levesque, the rest of the senior executive team is composed of Michelle Wilson, 51, the Chief Revenue & Marketing Officer; George Barrios, 51, the Chief Strategy and Financial Officer; Kevin Dunn, 56, the Executive Producer & Chief of Global Television Production, Blake Bilstad, 47, the Senior Vice President, General Counsel and Secretary; Casey Collins, 44, the Executive Vice President of Consumer Products, Basil DeVito, 62, the Senior Advisor of Business Strategy and Michael Luisi, 51, the President of WWE Studios.

> For 2017, the base salaries for Vince is $1.4 million, Wilson is $791,044, Barrios is $783,510; Levesque is $650,000 (as an executive, not including his salary as talent) and Dunn is $909,560.

> It’s interesting that in management goals for 2017, the stated goal is not based on adding new subscribers to the network, but based on adding the average hours consumed per subscriber, which was a number that declined in 2016 from 2015.

> As far as total pay for last year, not including dividends, Vince McMahon earned $3,071,600 ($1,313,462 in salary, $1,739,063 in incentive compensation and $19,075 in matching 401K plans and life insurance payments). That was down from $3,308,998 from 2015 but up from $2,413,865 in 2014.

> Wilson earned $4,317,617; Barrios earned $4,311,056; Levesque earned $3,993,417 (which was $601,933 for executive salary, $499,992 in stock, $419,531 in incentives for company performance and $2,471,961 as talent for his matches and television appearances and he also missed football season as talent this past year); and Dunn earned $4,637,652.

> Like Vince McMahon, all the executives earned less in 2016 based on lower revenue coming from meeting incentives, with the exception of Paul Levesque, and that’s because his money for being a wrestler increased from $1,713,360 in 2015.

> Stephanie McMahon earned about $2 million between executive pay and talent, not including stock. Shane McMahon earned about $2,150,000, all as a performer, for his role on television as commissioner as well as for his main event money from WrestleMania and Survivor Series.

> Listed as the company’s key goals in 2017 are to grow the WWE Network, although as noted, the main goal listed is to grow the average amount of hours consumed per subscriber, and not grow subscriber numbers; increase international revenue; increase “certain television ratings, social media metric; sponsorships and net promoter score,” increase revenue from new product initiatives and come up with actionable business initiatives to generate new revenue and social media followers in certain new markets.

> Vince McMahon received an additional $17,056,020 in stock dividends. Linda McMahon received $272,050 in stock dividends. Stephanie McMahon received $919,079.52 in stock dividends in 2016. Paul Levesque received $30,803.52 in stock dividends in 2016.

> Like most of the biggest stars, even though he far out-earned that figure even working nine matches for the year and missing several months of television due to storyline reasons of wanting to keep him off, Levesque’s downside for 2016 was $1 million. I believe with the exception of Brock Lesnar and maybe John Cena, nobody has a downside greater than $1 million, even though the headliners earn multiple times that.

> The members of the Board of Directors who aren’t executives last year earned between $57,541 and $98,041, and all also received an additional $57,500 in stock.

Was a fun main event first time around, so if it does happen again (90% chance it doesn't I'd imagine) then I have no issue with that. And even if it sucks in the slim chance it ends up happening, at least there'll be 15 other matches on the show.

This will not happen until he turns heel.

I'm dead serious, The Rock was the exact same way, he came into his own as a heel, and then it naturally worked as a face.

It boggles the mind how they're aware enough of his reactions to actually use him to get Orton over at the Rumble, and yet they still think he's got the potential to be the next Cena, to the point where Undertaker's going to put him over (either by losing or giving him a show of respect.)

Well see Raw is 3 hours and thus needs more talent! Smackdown will be perfectly fine with Elias Samson!

Of course I say that and maybe SD! could turn Samson into a perfectly viable IC level heel or team him with Ziggler or something.

Reminder that we didn't get Daniel Bryan vs Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 31 because it was seen as going back to the well too many times yet Reigns gets to main event thrice at WM and twice against the same man in the same exact feud.

I just don't understand why the WWE keep forcing Reigns. The guy has improved, looks good in the ring and has a good look...but that's where it ends. Outside of the ring he is a void of charisma. Make him one of your consistent main eventers, sure, but the face of the company? I just don't get it.

When Cena became the face of the company he had at least demonstrated a good-to-great all around ability in every facet as a performer and had won over the fans pretty naturally thanks to it. Cena being forced down everyones' throats was/is at least understandable.

I get it, Vince/WWE like to have one big face of the company, okay, whatever. But why is Reigns that guy? He doesn't have it.

>The plan is to once again build for a year and have the big coronation at WrestleMania. The idea between now and then is for Reigns to be the face, not just when he wins the title, but to fully replace John Cena as the lead babyface of the company.

We are never going to get a star on the level of Austin, Cena, or Hogan ever again at this rate. It simply won't happen. Vince is so dead set on Reigns he's willing to waste almost half a decade to build him up, only for him to be shot right back down. I'm gonna give them the benefit of the doubt and say it's loldirtsheets, but this is definitely something I can very clearly see happening.

>Reigns needs ANOTHER coronation?

>Hogan Mania Coronations
1,2,3,5,7,9

>Cena Mania Coronations
21,22,23,25,26,29

Vince loves his super hero underdog babyfaces. Cena's Mania coronations (Mania title match wins) practically mirror Hogan's 20 years after the fact. And both of their pushes lasted for at least a decade. Neither were turned heel, and despite dwindling crowd approval, were pushed as the top babyface. Jake Roberts and Randy Savage were turned heel or purposely cooled off, just like Punk and Bryan, because Vince's pick overrules the fan's pick for the next big star. People like Zayn and Ambrose will be sacrificed for Reigns for the next decade. I'd bet if Vince was facing going out of business until his show got hit in 98, Rocky Mavia would've been pushed just the same, and The Rock never would have came to be and Steve Austin never would've been a top guy. Despite all this, Vince and WWE will continue to make millions and millions of dollars every year. They have a customer base that will stay with them no matter what. Their ratings and attendance numbers rival Nitro's when they were at their bitter end. Vince is just a better business operator, and going public made him a billionaire. It sucks, but WWE isn't going anywhere and Roman Reigns will be the biggest full time wrestling star for the next decade or so.

Hogan was already a top face by wrestlemania 1

Cena's coronation to the top of the card was really only at 21.
22 and 23 saw him defending both his title and proving his worth already at the top of the card.

Not nearly the same thing.

This, however is another moment to attempt to push Reigns as the face of the company which hasn't worked for 3 times now.

That's also ignoring that Cena had a natural push and earned his way up the card. He debuted in mid 2002, won his first midcard title within a year and a half and won his first world title a year after that as opposed to the absolute unnatural forcefeeding of Roman from the moment The Shield broke up to present day.

I'll never understand how people loved that 31 main event. There are Roman matches I have enjoyed too but to this day I see comments like "greatest Wrestlemania main event" in relation to that match and I simply cannot relate to that.

all of WWE's top stars arguably had Wrestlemanias built around them. Hogan had a lot of early Manias, Savage had one dedicated to him (even if the long term plan was to drop it to Hogan by next Mania), Warrior had Mania 6, Bret had WM X, Shawn had WM 12, Austin had 14, Cena's had 21-23 and a few others, 30 is built around Bryan even if he wasn't ever gonna be THE face...

A lot of Wrestlemanias are "coronations" for whoever is gonna be the top face at the time. The only at the moment who I think didn't have Mania built around him is fucking Rock, although the 27-29 trilogy could arguably be his

Cool. I really do hope Anthem don't bollock this one up as they already started turning people off with TNA's drama currently. Optimistic though, ITV made WWE shit their pants enough for them to create a worthless U.K. title and delay a whole tournament, if they see this as a profitable enterprise with a big network audience this could get very interesting.

>A lot of times people talk about how there’s no long-term planning but the WrestleMania 34 main event for April 8, 2018, which obviously could change, is set for Lesnar vs. Reigns for the Universal title.

Look at Big Dave implying this won't be the SummerSlam main event instead, aren't WWE doing "bigger" arenas for these Big-4-PPV's now? Anyway the real long-term planning is Cena vs. Reigns at Mania, no question, which will have to happen at Wrestlemania for that cliché "passing the torch moment" bullshit McMahon loves to do.

>The goal is very much to make Reigns the next Cena

Good luck with making someone that can't talk people into the building, let alone cut a promo, your top star. Unless Roman can grow a personality he's the next nothing. WWE will find out the hard way, I suppose.

>Goldberg’s contract expires at WrestleMania

Independent promoters have noted that word has gone around that Castle will be available for dates later in the year, although that could be testing the waters.

I don't really know anything about the man so I can't say he'd move to another country and nor do I know if WWE is his goal... it seems like there's a dearth of english-speaking indies that actually do big storylines which is what his routine would really need

He has the 'look'. He lacks character, direction, fan connection, charisma, talking ability, etc. He's gotten better in the ring, but he's still not a total package enough to be THE GUY of the company ideally. They're just so dead set on him despite his flaws they ignore everything fucking else.

Like, Roman isn't even "bad". He's a good hand, but he's being pushed way past his competency level, and this is the guy they want to essentially crown as king of all WWE.

He's one of the most emblematic things of WWE's weird sense of stratification: only those pre-ordained to be at the Top will be at the top, everyone has their ceiling and none dare try to reach beyond it, and eventually everything feeds back to the one true King somehow, to make him look better.

Same thing happened with Cena for goddamn too long (especially after the other established 'top guys' fell off for their various reasons), and they're repeating it now because they just refuse to change.

Yeah, Cena's push was actually organic (and included a spot where his career was on a legitimate skid), and only got to the dreaded SuperCena level in the years after.

Reigns' push is corporate decree at all levels and oozes of forced all around. It was visible even during the later Shield days. Post-Shield, he lost anything organic about him after he was removed from the Seth beef.

Indeed, Castle can get his character over without needing big storylines or promos.

Although I haven't watched any of the others much, PROGRESS tends to focus on British/European talent and only bring in North American guys to fill gaps on a card unless they're amazing (e.g Hero/Riddle) so I couldn't really see Castle there.

I can't see any other way. Much as a Nakamura or Joe going over Brock would help their credibility, they'll want to get back that aura of invulnerability Brock had before he was beaten twice in the space of a couple of minutes by a 50 year old man. Which'll mean him going over pretty much everyone in the roster before he gets to Roman again next Mania so no one but Reigns has that honor of going over him.

I can actually see Brock showing up more though. I mean, he screwed himself over with the roids thing with UFC so he'll at least make the monthly PPVs and maybe the occasional RAW to hype them.

>Anthem the parent company of Impact, and ITV, have reached a deal. We don’t know of all the details at this point, the working plan is to start a weekly television show on ITV that will air at 5 p.m. Saturdays, starting in July. The plan is to tape shows from 5/25 to 5/27 in the U.K., taping ten or 11 one hour shows. ITV has committed to a short run in that time slot, and would then make a decision on continuing based on ratings. While the original idea was for an ITV-run promotion, the decision was made, similar to how wrestling worked on the network during its run in the same time slot during the 60s, 70s and 80s, that they would use an existing promotion as a content provider. The promotions suggested were Impact and What Culture, and the decision was made to go with Impact. Both ITV and Anthem are looking at Jim Ross as the lead announcer for the ITV show, as he did the pilot. Right now does not have a deal for the full-time show but they are in talks.

So what does this mean for the guys signed by WOS? Will Gibson, El Ligero, Mastiff etc be on TNA now?

Shitting on a coworker for not showing up to work (regardless of why they didn't show) on social media is grounds for termination in any business, and any company that hired an employee in full confidence of a mental disorder looks unbelievably shitty for letting a high profile employee take pot shots at them (again, regardless of whether or not Mauro's absence was valid) on a social media site.

Roman Reigns is the embodiment of Vince's ego. He's a big man, he's samoan, he's a football reject, he was trained SOLELY in the WWE, so no one can say the WWE didn't make him a star.

And Roman Reigns is what also is going to be the eventual downfall of WWE embodied. The outright rejection of anything other than what Vince wants. The ego to not push the next mega star because he doesn't have a 'look' or wasn't produced by WWE.

No one is allowed to become bigger than the WWE anymore. Cena, Austin, Hogan, The Rock, all these men were bigger than the WWE. He wasn't 'WWE Superstar Hulk Hogan', he was Hulk Hogan. Can anyone imagine Roman Reigns becoming bigger than the WWE? He has absolutely no charisma in the ring, and somehow even less out of the ring. Especially in recent years, Cena has been incredibly mainstream, with movies, memes, commercials, TV shows, etc, but this was all at its peak more towards the current years of his career, so towards the end.

Daniel Bryan had the opportunity to become bigger than the WWE. The guy had charisma. He felt like an every-man who anyone can relate to. He had the SF Giants using the YES chant after 3 world series wins. He stopped a burglar by wrestling him to the ground. He had the chance to be bigger, but we all know how that unfortunately ended.

Yeah Dustin Hoffman saying jolly african-american in a scripted movie is the same as Dustin Hoffman saying jolly african-american in a tweet. (?) You don't even understand WHY JBL's tweet is bullshit. Something itches in your brain that it is, but you're too dumb to figure it out. It's a bad tweet because it makes your company look like a shitty hostile work environment, it has nothing to do with what scripted lines someone says in front of Booker T.

It's probably to do with some kind of loyalty thing. When choosing "the guy of the decade" assessing whether they will stay with the company is probably equally important (if not more) than other things.

Joe Annoy is aware that the WWE has treated his family pretty well over the years and to jump ship would jeopardize that relationship. They also probably made him watch WWE documentaries, Clockwork orange style.

I can see Dave's point. Vince is so deadset on Reigns that unless he can be without a doubt, directly blamed for financial losses the company garners, Vince is not going to drop him.

I mean WWE in itself is a draw, people are always going to watch it, buy merch, tickets to shows. Reigns will affect those numbers for sure, as he's not the star Vince thinks he is. But is he bad enough to make people start no showing WM? I don't think so.

Did you watch it? Force feeding? What the fuck are you talking about? He got his ass kicked the entire match until he got some good licks in at the end, then he got pinned clean by Seth. He came off a tough guy who could take an ass kicking without dying, but in no way was it anything like you described. Given how the match ended, he actually should have probably got in more offense.

Jesus, I don't agree with his mega push either, but the blind hatred and bitching is getting annoying.

Hating Roman's push is no meme. It's totally legitimate to hate how he's pushed, because it's horrible and it's why he's booed in the first place. If you actually realize that Roman is good these days, then you should hate his push even MORE since it's holding him back from being accepted by crowds and other fans.

I think Roman can work these days, but he's still booked like total garbage via showcasing only the parts he's not good at yet while downplaying what he IS good at. It'd REALLY help if they booked him against guys smaller than him instead of big guys and monsters all the time; he's WAY better dominating than working from underneath.

Some not wanting a guy that has been forced into a spot for over two years is now a meme? It couldn't possibly be that they have no reason to care about him in this spot and the push has been completely inorganic? The fact that he comes across as extremely unlikable whether he talks in the ring or out of the ring?

I can acknowledge when he has had some good matches, most that I could name being plunder brawls in the post-Shield era, but that's a poor POV if you can't see why people would continue to not care for Roman.

I watch plenty of better wrestling, but I can still have an opinion about the guy since I've seen a few years worth of his work. He was a good hot tag since the Shield days, and since early-mid 2015 he was at the point where a better wrestler could get him to a great match. Sometime after that he started improving and hitting the point where he can actually put on a match without being 100% carried (although in some matches he was still outclassed, but against some guys like Styles everybody is outclassed). His only issues are long-term underdog selling and lengthy promo work, but that's what he's booked to do.

Roman against anybody in the Cruiserweight division would rule because he could actually dominate and do power moves and shit. He's not very strong relative to some other guys, but when he gets to actually execute them his power moves look great. Reigns vs Neville would be terrific today, especially with Neville's current heel gimmick.

what's wrong with "smoke-and-mirror" booking anyway? Everyone loves ECW and honestly a lot of it was hiding deficiencies in the top talent and everything. Wrestling is built on hiding people's weaknesses and presenting them as the best they can be

If anything them hiding Reigns' weaknesses enough until he gets experience is them doing good booking, and god knows WWE is criticized harshly for not booking talent well enough

Booking to make the company's top guy look as good as possible isn't bad. What's happening here is blowback.

WWE has been playing out a twenty-year storyline in which the people who run the company are the biggest heels and trying to take opportunities away from wrestlers who deserve it so that their chosen ones can succeed. Now they want fans who have been following that story to take the company's new "chosen one" into their hearts.

that's pretty much the backbone of pro wrestling though, making you believe untrained fuccbois can actually fight and/or do cool shit you can't do

>>5669484
While I get this in principle, there has to come a point where we fans need to realize that pretty much anyone who gets pushed is exactly that - someone chosen by the people who run the company. Steve Austin being cheered for standing up to the man is massively hypocritical when you actually look back at the attitude era and see just how much the company hides his weaknesses (can't wrestle long technical matches post-injury) and how much the company is built around him (when he comes back raw and smackdown basically structured their storylines around Austin at the expense of the other main eventers), for example. The very notion of a "push" implies some kind of backing from the company or the booker or whatever, so any form of resistance to someone for being "pushed" is I think silly because wrestling is built on the backbone of deciding that someone gets the ball to run with at the decision of the wrestling company. The only argument against this is that perhaps wrestling companies should listen more to their audiences, but that's difficult when there's multiple different audiences and it's rare for them to unilaterally agree on something. Hell, I'm sure at the zenith of Austin's popularity there's people grumbling about it and demanding [insert my favorite wrestler here] be pushed instead

> There was a closed-door meeting backstage at Monday's RAW in Brooklyn to discuss the matter, according to PWInsider. Vince McMahon, Triple H, officials from Talent Relations and others were present. No details regarding what was discussed were revealed.

> On a related note, Dave Meltzer reported on Wrestling Observer Radio that the company will not be taking action against Paige or Xavier Woods. Meltzer added that the company will just wait for the situation to blow over but if it doesn't, some sort of action could be taken if a sponsor or someone else prominent complains.

>As we previously reported, Broken Matt is currently battling with Impact Wrestling over the use of his name/gimmick. The wrestling company believes they should be paid when it’s used, but Hardy doesn’t agree. The brothers are also the current ROH tag champs after signing a short-term deal.

>Still no word on whether WWE creative is looking to use their “broken” characters, but the legal side of things probably doesn’t bode well for a chance of that happening immediately.

Before the Broken stuff, Matt was Big Money, which was also an entertaining gimmick, He's not a one-trick pony by any means

Also, even without the kino-production both Hardys can still go in the ring, numerous matches in Impact attest to that.

Carnie as fuck, promoters never change

They had ridiculous contracts that paid them ludicrous amounts of money whether they showed up and actually performed or not. I doubt they even gave a shit about the t-shirt money.

They got lots of deal though. ITV in UK, AAA, India. I want it dead too. But probably not as quick as I wanted.

Nah bro. Dixie's track record is far worse than Anthem. If Anthem has a case, then it's about protecting a trademark, which is what most companies legally can do. It doesn't look good publicly, but that doesn't compare to someone who wasn't paying her employees for month, putting an intoxicated Jeff Hardy out on live PPV, fucking up a TV deal that cost them millions twice, made wrestlers pay them back for injuries they sustain in a TNA ring, do a segment on TV telling the wrestlers to STFU about the Hogan/Bischoff regime, etc.

On a Dixie scale of 1-10, this is a 3 (underpaying Knockouts to where they had to get second jobs).
