>Discuss people in wrestling you thought were going to take off and elevate their careers significantly but for one reason or another it didn't pan out
Christina Von Errie is a wrestler from Reno, NV but who got adopted by the SoCal scene where people first took notice of because of her Brody Dalle-esque Punk Rocker character. She started off in 2008 and by 2010 she was already the "other girl" in PWG, being the only other woman wrestling in the promotion besides Candice LaRae. By the end of 2010, TNA had her come do a dark match for them so they could take a look at her.

In 2011, SHIMMER the All women's promotion out of Chicago made her a regular roster member and TNA took her on as "Toxxin", pairing her up with Shannon Moore and Jesse Neal of Ink Inc. While the role was small, get a foot in the door of nationally televised TNA seemed like it meant Christina was going to stay on the radar. Jesse Neal and Von Errie had a whirlwind romance that lead to them getting engaged by July 2011 but the relationship broke apart afterwards.

It was around the 2011 point where I thought "Alright, PWG and TNA in the bag, she's about to go somewhere with this now".

In 2013 she started picking up dates with CZW and sister promotion WSU, which was around the same time she began engaged to Deathmatch mainstay MASADA and indeed the two worked a few matches with each other. They were also engaged at one point but that also didn't work out.

The mid-10s were good for Christina indie-wise, where she was now picking up numerous gigs in promotions across America, however, the TNA gig from 2011 didn't produce as much mileage as I might have thought. Ink Inc didn't go far past 2011 and thus neither did "Toxxin". TNA brought her back years later as the GFW's Women's Champion put that angle ended up a lame duck and didn't lead to much extra work. In that same era she picked up some work with HOODSLAM in Oakland, which I thought might be good for her as new "home" promotion since Christina's punk thing would definitely vibe with them. Being from Reno, she occasionally worked with Reno Scum. Reno Scum ended up working for Impact for a while, but CVE was not brought back in with them.

However, by the end of the 10s she was drifted towards Canada and ECCW up in the Vancouver, British Columbia area. This would eventually lead her to meeting and marrying Scotty Mac, a mainstay of that promotion, in what appears to be a very happy marriage. As a result of that, Vancouver and ECCW act as her current base.

In 2019 WWE signed Shotzi Blackheart, a Californian chick who started working in 2015 who also runs with an alternative/punk look who had worked with promotions such as HOODSLAM and wrestled Von Errie in a few matches in 2018 before being signed. Shotzi is now doing very well for herself in NXT.

I thought between an easy-to-communicate character, a varied experience of working with both guys and girls, and getting a connection with a televised company like TNA would have put CVE on the path to be someone decently visible on the wrestling radar, but for whatever that didn't quite go for her and she remained only ever doing good but not outstanding on the indie scene.

Go figure. Who you guys got?

I wish it was possible to erase Bill DeMott from the wrestling timeline so Richie Steamboat never had to retire early. Dude was pretty good and had all the time in the world to improve, but the fat psychopath ruined it all.

I'm both sad that he retired way too early - the term "living highlight reel" applied to him like godfuckingdamn - and happy that he's living life on his terms instead of being another broken-down husk of a former wrestler. It's bittersweet, but it's still a Good End overall.

it's not that the allie kat deathmatch arc is a bad thing it's just that seeing everyone's specific reaction to it kind of exposes how little people actually pay attention to women in DM environments even more than it already did. if sage sin ever decides to step back into the ring and GCW or BLP or any of the other big indies book she's going to explode. and she still should've anyway cause she was fucking awesome.

would also argue that every indy fed in the world should've been jumping at the chance to book scotty davis but now that's it clear how well being around jordan devlin and will ospreay raised him maybe it's not a bad thing that they didn't

> Matt Riddle dropped a petition on 9/7 in Orange County to get a restraining order against Samantha Tavel (Candy Cartwright), who had accused him of sexual assault on Twitter and in an article in Newsweek, and is now expected to file a slander/libel lawsuit against Tavel on 9/22 for alleging he sexually assaulted her.

> The first filing was simply to get a restraining order to keep her from the Performance Center, where she allegedly came and caused a scene on December 19, 2019.

> Tavel and her lawyers were given five-day notice of plans to file a suit by Riddle against her in Marion Country in Florida on or after 9/22 based on giving five day notice based on comments that came out after the petition was dropped, claiming Tavel made up the claim and was attempting to ruin his career after he broke up with her.

> Riddle and Tavel had a relationship for several years on-and-off and after it was broken off by Riddle a second time, Tavel accused Riddle of sexual assault from a few years earlier, said to be in a van that the two along with others from Evolve were traveling together to shows in. Her claim is that nobody else in the van was aware of it because they were sleeping.

> WWE was aware of the issues between the two for more than one year and had looked into the case at the time and it had not affected Riddle’s standing with the company. Riddle had contemplated filing for a restraining order against her last year but it was said that he decided against doing so after he talked with WWE about the situation. The two had a relationship at the time of the alleged sexual assault and continued the relationship after that time period.

> According to an article by David Bixenspan on the Babyface vs. Heel web site, Riddle alleged by checking a category when filing for the original restraining order that Tavel had committed stalking, previously threatened, harassed, stalked, cyberstalked or physically abused Riddle, threatened to harm Riddle or family member or individuals close to him, used or threatened to use weapons against him such as guns of knives, destroyed personal property, including but not limited to telephones and other communication equipment, clothing or other items belonging to Riddle.

> The claim is that Riddle withdrew the petition in Orange County as backing down on the claims, but the warning from Riddle’s side that they were now planning a libel lawsuit against Tavel seems to contradict that.

> Daniel Rose, the attorney for Riddle, alleged that there had been no public statements by Tavel in several months and they believed there would not be when they pulled the attempt to get the order three days prior. The article indicated they pulled it based on a filing from Tavel’s attorney trying to deny the order and to get it thrown out to where Riddle’s side would have to pay Tavel’s court costs.

> In Riddle’s original petition he was attempting to keep Tavel from coming to the Performance Center. Riddle’s statement was that he met Tavel in 2016, and they started having an affair on November 6, 2017. He said he tried to break up with her in June 2018, but they ended up still seeing each other under he broke up with her again in July 2019.

> He said Tavel systematically stalked, cyberstalked and harassed himself and hi wife since July 9, 2019. He said he blocked her on social media and changed his phone number, only for her to text him from a burner phone saying that if he didn’t leave his wife for her that he would be sorry and she would ruin his career.

> Days later he and attorney Daniel J. Rose talked about filing a restraining order, but didn’t do it, but did contact WWE about the situation. The petition also lists that this past February (it was actually believed to be December 19, 2019) that Tavel came from New York to Full Sail University where he was working and she created a scene and had to be escorted out of the building.

> On 6/19, Tavel accused Riddle of sexual assault during th…

>Watch AEW Dynamite with /wooo/ in /wooo/tube - http://taima.tv/r/wooo and /wooo/alt - http://taima.tv/r/woooalt at 8pm Eastern//1am London. Dynamite will be preceeded by a replay of AEW Dark. On tonigth's show:
  • 3 on 3: AEW Champion Jon Moxley & Big Willy Hobbs & Darby Allin vs. "The Murderhawk" Lance Archer & "The Machine" Brian Cage & Ricky Starks w/ Taz CARD SUBJECT TO CHANGE
  • Lance Archer has been pulled from the show
  • AEW World Championship bout: Jon Moxley (c) vs "The Last of a Dying Breed" Eddie Kingston
  • AEW TNT Championship bout: Mr. Brodie Lee (c) vs. "Freshly Squeezed" Orange Cassidy.
  • AEW Women's Champion Hikaru Shida & NWA Women's Champion Thunder Rosa vs. Diamante & Ivelisse.
  • "Le Demo God" Chris Jericho to appear.
  • Holy Miro, the Best Man to make in-ring debut
Late Night Dynamite was a great show and we can expect the same from tonight's episode of AEW Dynamite. There will be a huge six-man tag team match with AEW World Champion Jon Moxley, Will Hobbs and Darby Allin facing Team Taz and the No. 1 contender Lance Archer. The AEW Women's Champion will also team up with the NWA Women's Champion as they take on Diamante and Ivelisse. Former WWE Superstar Miro (Rusev) will be making his in-ring debut. There will also be a TNT Championship match, with Orange Cassidy challenging Mr. Brodie Lee.

>AEW World Champion Jon Moxley features in the main event
The main-event of AEW Dynamite was built up on last week's show. Brian Cage and Ricky Starks attacked Jon Moxley, before Moxley was saved by Will Hobbs, who came out with a steel chair in hand. Moxley and Hobbs will team up with Darby Allin tonight. They face the formidable team of Brian Cage, Ricky Starks and the No. 1 contender for the AEW World Championship, Lance Archer.

>Orange Cassidy gets a shot at the TNT Championship
Mr. Brodie Lee will put the TNT Championship on the line tonight on AEW Dynamite against Orange Cassidy. Cassidy has had quite the year and even though he managed to beat Chris Jericho twice, Lee will be an entirely different test altogether. Not only will Brodie Lee have the size and power advantage, he also has the insurance of rest of The Dark Order.

>Hikaru Shida teams up with Thunder Rosa
The AEW Women's Champion Hikaru Shida will team up with the NWA Women's Champion Thunder Rosa for the first time tonight, as they face Ivelisse and Diamante. Ivelisse and Diamante showed what they are capable of during the AEW Women's Tag Team Cup. They are solid together as a team and may have an advantage in that aspect. Shida and Thunder Rosa will have to figure out how to work together if they want the win.

>Miro makes his in-ring debut in AEW
As announced by Tony Khan on Twitter, former WWE Superstar Miro (Rusev) will be in action on AEW Dynamite. This will be Miro's in-ring debut in AEW. However, at the time of writing, his opponent is unknown.

Ruth Bader Goldberg took the win after a brutal raccoon attack during the last Bumble.

Reminder that next week on Thursday October 1st we will have a Wednesday(Thursday) Night War. This means only AEW and NXT people can be nominated. It will be split down the middle with 18 AEW noms and 18 NXT noms. For this Bumble.

As always I am open to your suggestions for events and weapons. It might not be noticed but I do often go in and tweak things for everyone's experience. For anyone that has suggested a weapon and you haven't seen it yet to not be discouraged. I keep track of them and I add them when I spark some creativity.

There are still a couple big things that have yet to happen so hopefully we will get them soon because we are almost halfway through this season.

>Nominations at 7:30pm EST
>Bloodbath at 8:10pm EST

Until then I need that H Y P E!

Its actually been pretty fun to do. The base of the sim probably took around 40 work hours to finish but once it got started it never became a chore to do. The real issue today was that I wanted to get Arena Events to finally be available in time and it came down to the last minute to get it finished. I am happy to see that people are enjoying them too. I am already thinking of things to do to improve and add to the game for a possible season 2.

Bandido & Último Guerrero off the CMLL Aniversario show after positive COVID-19 tests
>Bandido and Ultimo Guerrero both have tested positive for COVID-19, CMLL announced on Informa Wednesday. They join Lluvia and Princesa Sugehit as COVID-19 CMLL luchadors in the last few days. Four of the seven matches planned for the CMLL Aniversario show, CMLL’s biggest event, have now been changed due to COVID-19 positive results. CMLL still plans on running the show on Friday.

>Mexico City wrestling regulations require regular COVID-19 testing. CMLL has said they’re following all testing regulations, have shown glimpses of testing, and have implied they’re doing tests once a week. There are no more further details, including the type of tests being used. Sugehit’s positive test came with her personal doctor in Monterrey. Bandido worked CMLL’s show on Friday, which wouldn’t have been allowed with a positive test. Any positive test seems as though it must’ve also been him getting a test himself. It is less clear when Lluvia or Ultimo Guerrero tested positive. Lluvia did miss Friday’s show with no explanation, but CMLL rarely explains missing wrestlers. Ultimo Guerrero has not appeared or been listed on a CMLL PPV card since their return, but did work some of their TV tapings.

>CMLL fans overwhelming voted Bandido to face Volador Jr. for his NWA Historic Welterweight Championship. Bandido can no longer participate. Templario will take Bandido’s place as Volador’s challenger. Lluvia and Princesa Sugehit are to get their make up title matches in October. CMLL will also make up the missing world trios title match in October and plan to also have Bandido/Volador in October.

>Box Y Lucha mentioned fan-circulated rumors of Bandido’s COVID-19 diagnosis in their issue on Monday, but the story didn’t get widely picked up until CMLL’s announcement on Wednesday. Ultimo Guerrero’s status has been in question since his partner Lluvia was announced as testing positive on Monday. CMLL quietly deleted graphics promoting both the trios title match and Volador/Bandido from social media on Tuesday.

>If I’m right about CMLL testing before TV tapings on Thursday – a lot of guesswork there – CMLL may not know who else is COVID-19 positive until tomorrow. CMLL possibly will change the procedures because of these tests but they have may outward indications of a chance and are continuing on as normal.

well yeah they make tons of money, but like I said, if your business model is dependent on WWE's biggest weekend of the year, perhaps that's not good or sustainable? It's literally piggybacking. No wonder it earned Vince's wrath.

There's something to be said about staying local and cultivating a loyal hometown audience that packs a high school gym every month to see your show.

Everyone has had dollar signs in their signs since Gabe ran Supercard of Honor 2006, even though that was by wrestling's definition, an outlaw show. The well has been tapped dry.

>AEW talent have been hit with COVID-19.

>Fightful, in collaboration with Spectrum Sports 360's Jon Alba, were able to confirm that multiple wrestlers and talent present at All Elite Wrestling's September 9 tapings tested positive for COVID-19 in the two weeks since. We were not told if those tests were separately conducted or if they were conducted and diagnosed at either set of tapings. There were others we've heard are ill or showing symptoms, but we're unsure if they've tested positive.

>Some of the talent involved had been brought in for the last set of AEW Dark tapings. Many of those talent are not contracted and can take independent wrestling dates, but are tested before entering Daily's Place for All Elite Wrestling work.

>There were numerous wrestlers missing from the September 24 set of tapings, but we will not be identifying anyone that we've heard has COVID-19. Lance Archer identified himself as having COVID-19 shortly before the show started, noting that he believes he contracted it from a family member.

>There was another WWE related outbreak of COVID-19 associated to their makeshift Performance Center two weeks ago, as well.

>Alba added the following:
"Over the last few months, #AEW has by far had the most extensive COVID-19 protocols among any wrestling companies that chose to run during the pandemic. The conditions of how or where the virus was transmitted is not entirely clear at this time. Hoping everyone affected is OK."

"It's entirely plausible talent were kept off this week's show for precautionary reasons, and didn't necessarily test positive. But we can report there were multiple positive cases in the past couple of weeks involving talent who were present at tapings earlier this month. #AEW"

>Fightful and Alba both reached out to All Elite Wrestling officials earlier this week, but did not hear back.

Was it one of Drake's QAnon rallies?
>NXT’s outbreak of COVID-19 has been in the news this week, and it has reportedly led to classes being canceled at the WWE Performance Center, several changes to NXT creative, and even the main roster being affected.

>PWInsider is now reporting more details about the outbreak:

“The belief among several sources is that the outbreak started after a NXT talent threw a party that fellow trainees attended, leading to an asymptomatic transmission of the virus that then spread among those who work and train in the Performance Center. We are told there have been a number of those who have tested positive this week, both trainees and staff.

...As a safeguard to prevent further spread, PWInsider.com is also told that talents and staff working at the PC or on NXT tapings will not be allowed to work Raw or Smackdown tapings at the Thunderdome in Orlando until further notice.”

>However, there remains a fear among several we have spoken with that given the potential of asymptomatic COVID-19 transmissions and that NXT trainees were working as masked Retribution members on Monday’s Raw taping, that there could have indeed been potential cross-contamination to the main roster.”

>There were definitely a ton of extra RETRIBUTION members on Raw, and if there was a larger spread of the virus as a result, it could potentially cause some major changes to WWE’s upcoming Clash of Champions pay-per-view on Sept. 27.

>There were some national concerns that big gatherings around Labor Day would come with an uptick in COVID-19 cases, and a lot of the details that we are now reading about, in what looks to be an industry-wide pro wrestling outbreak, refers back to that earlier part of September. We don’t know that the party mentioned in the report from PWInsider was related to Labor Day, but it’s certainly something that is logical to wonder about.

>WWE issued the following statement about their COVID-19 protocols:

“As part of ongoing testing protocols, WWE completed its second round of weekly COVID-19 testing on Tuesday. Individuals that tested positive will quarantine for 14 days, receive medical care, and then will only be cleared when they are symptom-free and test negative. Additionally, extensive contact tracing has taken place and other individuals have been placed in 14-day quarantine, and will then only be cleared after they test negative.”

this thread is for all the people, matches and gimmicks that are undeniably, certifiably, unequivocally, unanimously, fundamentally, 100% scientifically-proven B - A - S - E - D. BASED.

I'll start with the most universally-beloved suggestion: the true crossface submission master SID.

Like I said last week, it reminds me of the Cruiserweight Classic with each wrestler getting a promo package profiling their background and motivations for winning the tournament as well as the emphasis on the in-ring wrestling production and commentary wise. I'm hoping that the production of the Pure Tournament will influence ROH's booking and product going forward after the tournament.

Same here.

I kinda want them to try to do a bi-monthly show that's Pure matches that's closer to a MMA format than wrestling. I also say bi-monthly because doing it every month may cause burnout.
