His heel runs throughout his career were always dimes, it's just that promoters mishandled him. Especially WWE.
Vince likes him too much and finds him personally to be one of the funniest and most entertaining people he's ever met, which likely keeps him as a face since like the reports say, once he sees you a certain way, you're pigeonholed that way for pretty much forever in his eyes. It's very rare to break away from how he sees or saw you.

WWE NXT: Kross vs Burch//Kushida got booked//Escobar vs Breeze

>Watch WWE NXT with /wooo/ in /wooo/2 - http://taima.tv/r/wooo2 and /wooo/alt2 - http://taima.tv/r/woooalt2 at 8pm Eastern//1am London. On tonight's show:
  • Karrion Kross with Scarlett vs. Danny Burch.
  • WWE North American Championship Qualifying Match: KUSHIDA vs. Cameron Grimes vs. ?????
  • WWE NXT Cruiserweight Champion Santos Escobar vs. Tyler Breeze (non-title bout).
  • Bronson Reed vs. Damian Priest.
  • The Garganos return.
>Danny Burch steps to Karrion Kross
> Last week, Karrion Kross used Danny Burch as a pawn in his vicious game of chicken with NXT Champion Keith Lee. Will a one-on-one match between Kross and Burch lead to a similar result? NXT General Manager William Regal made an emphatic statement last month, telling Kross and Lee that he won’t be bullied into making championship matches. The destructive Kross hasn’t relented, brutalizing several Superstars as a bargaining chip for the NXT Title opportunity he covets. He started off by dismantling Dominik Dijakovic, then savagely laid out Burch and others last week.The tough-as-nails Burch is hellbent on giving Kross a receipt for his attack, but will their bout end with Kross sending another ruthless message to Lee?

>Kushida, Cameron Grimes and unknown Superstar battle for TakeOver XXX opportunity
> Three more spots remain in the Ladder Match to decide the next North American Champion at NXT TakeOver XXX, and one of them will be claimed by either Kushida, Cameron Grimes or an unknown competitor this week. Kushida put together a strong showing in the NXT Cruiserweight Title Tournament earlier this year, going 2-1 before narrowly coming up short in a Triple Threat Match to decide Group A. Grimes has tussled with some of the black-and-gold brand’s best and more than held his own, scoring wins over Finn Bálor and Damian Priest, not to mention taking NXT Champion Keith Lee to the limit in one-on-one action last week. Meanwhile, a third, yet-to-be-named competitor will also be in the mix. Who will it be, and which Superstar will join Priest and Bronson Reed at TakeOver XXX?

>Candice LeRae & Johnny Gargano invite the NXT Universe into their home
> Hospitality is clearly “The Gargano Way.” Via Twitter, former NXT Champion Johnny Gargano & Candice LeRae revealed they will once again invite us into their home tomorrow night. If prior evenings in the Gargano household are any indication, the black-and-gold brand’s self-proclaimed Power Couple will have plenty to say, especially after seeing NXT North American Championship and NXT Women’s Championship opportunities slip through their fingers in recent weeks. As Johnny & Candice prepare to open their door for the NXT Universe less than two weeks before NXT TakeOver XXX, Johnny Wrestling and The Poison Pixie also teased the NXT TV debut of their puppy, Pawdmé Amandalorian Amidala Wrestling Gargano.

>Damian Priest squares off with Bronson Reed ahead of TakeOver XXX
> Bronson Reed shocked the world when he prevailed over Johnny Gargano and Roderick Strong to clinch a spot in the North American Title Ladder Match at TakeOver XXX. But Damian Priest says The Aus-zilla’s win was a fluke. Can “The Thicc Boi” prove him wrong? The Archer of Infamy has made no secret that he believes the match to crown a new North American Champion was created for him. Priest backed up his words, taking care of business against Oney Lorcan and Ridge Holland last week. During his parking lot encounter with Priest last week, Reed made it clear that he felt disrespected by The Archer of Infamy, who happily challenged him to this one-on-one bout. Will The Aus-zilla silence his doubters, or will Priest nab another victory on his march toward infamy?

>Tyler Breeze takes on NXT Cruiserweight Champion Santos Escobar in non-title action
> Tyler Breeze found himself on the receiving end of Legado del Fantasma’s latest painful warning. But he’ll get a chance for payback this Wednesday night on NXT, as he faces NXT Cruiserweight Champion Santos Escobar in a non-title bout. Escobar, Joaquin Wilde and Raul Mendoza have dished out ruthless beatdowns left and right in recent weeks, though the champion has carefully classified their actions as simply defending the honor of lucha libre culture. Last week, they brutalized Fandango after snatching him in the parking lot, later using him to lure Breeze out before overwhelming him with …

The cream teams exploits were known in the mid 80s. They don't get "fired" or resign from their positions until 1993 when the scandal goes public. That's the definition of sweeping it under the rug.

Welcome to this years puro thread! Continuing from last thread >>6243531

THE STUFF IN THE TUBES:
>NJPW Strong airs weekly on Fridays at 10pm EDT / 3am BST in English in /wooo/tube 2 - http://taima.tv/r/wooo2 and in Japanese in /wooo/alt 2 - http://taima.tv/r/woooalt2. Replays air on Saturdays at 4pm EDT / 9pm BST also in /wooo/tube 2.
>Puro Tube is on Tuesdays at 3pm EDT / 8pm BST in /wooo/tube - http://taima.tv/r/wooo and shows promotions outside of Dragon Gate and NJPW. Join in as everyone argues why their favorite fed is superior and Yanopost, Anopost, CIMApost and dance like Keita until your tummy is full from all that snackpine.
>Shoot Style Tube is on Sundays at 3pm EDT / 8pm BST also in /wooo/tube, which usually feature classic Japanese Shootstyle wrestling shows and matches from the past and present.
>DG Tube shows replays of recent Dragon Gate live events and PPVs when scheduled - http://taima.tv/r/mondainightryu

Outside of Puro Tube, there's usually a few puro marks in the chat that can help fill you in on storylines and find you matches. Just show up outside of big shows like Raw, and you'll find someone in there to help you out. Puro matches also show up in the playlist, so scroll around to find them. NJPW, DG, and DDT live events are regularly streamed in the tubes, check the schedule for details.

>THE MAJOR FEDS:

NJPW: Oldest and largest promotion in Japan. Owned by Bushiroad and is booked by Gedo. His booking gets the tubes riled up sometimes (all the time), but the match quality generally makes up for it. In the midst of something of a revival, and although you may argue that it is already drawing to a close, they are still doing good business at the moment. They run one of the largest shows in wrestling, called Wrestle Kingdom, every year on January 4th at the fabled Tokyo Dome. Most every show they run, large and small, air in the tubes. They have a slew of foreign wrestlers on their roster right now. They also have a wonderful streaming website over at http://njpwworld.com/

Dragon Gate: Almost certainly the second largest promotion in Japan. Born out of the Toryumon promotion, which was the brainchild of Ultimo Dragon, their style is a mixture of classic puro, cruiserweight/junior heavyweight sprints, and lucha libre. Stable warfare is a huge part of the promotion, with most every wrestler in the company being aligned with a unit in some way. Though it is a big promotion, they retain a grassroots feel, with wrestlers selling merch before and after shows, and running many shows out of community centers and gyms. Most of their large shows air in the tubes, and footage is also posted here. They also have a show that is filmed monthly in their little studio in Kobe called Prime Zone which is wacky, fun, and full of Mondai Ryu schemes. They recently joined the streaming bandwagon over at https://dragongate.live

DDT: Indie promotion gunning for the second-largest-in-Japan spot alongside Dragon Gate. Founded in 1997 by Sanshiro Takagi (a big Stone Cold Steve Austin fan), they have taken the western sports entertainment style to the next level with ridiculous matches and outrageous gimmicks, like violently gay wrestlers, promos done in PowerPoint before matches, championships specifically for dark matches, and blow-up dolls and ladders winning titles. Despite the goofiness, there is tons of talent there, with names like Kota Ibushi, HARASHIMA, and Kenny Omega having been regulars at one point or another. They have released ddtuniverse, which is like NJPW World. A streaming site for all your DDT needs. The other companies that work alongside DDT also have their stuff on there. CyberAgent owned DDT and NOAH have merged under one corporate umbrella CyberFight and they, like NJPW have a great streaming service over at https://www.ddtpro.com/universe

AJPW: Still rebuilding from the glory days of the 80s and 90s, when icons like Jumbo Tsuruta, Mitsuharu Misawa, Kenta Kobashi, Toshiaki Kawada, Stan Hansen, Genichiro Tenryu, and Akira Taue loomed large. They were nearly killed after Misawa formed Pro Wrestling NOAH, taking most of the roster with him, but after a decade and a half of turmoil, they are doing fairly well right now, thanks in no small part due to the efforts of Jun Akiyama. The 80s/90s classics are a must-watch for any new puro fan, and their current product ain't bad either. They also joined the streaming sensation sweeping Japan rig…

The first few posts are from this week's Wrestling Observer Newsletter. For the full newsletter and much more get a subscription at http://www.f4wonline.com/

> Dwayne Johnson, along with former wife and current business partner Dany Garcia of Seven Bucks Entertainment, and RedBird Capital’s Gerry Cardinale, were the only bidder and look to be acquiring the XFL for $15 million in bankruptcy court. The sale may be held up by lawyers for clients who are owed money from Alpha Entertainment, which went into bankruptcy with tens of millions of dollars in unpaid bills.

> The price tag doesn’t come close to covering the league’s outstanding debts at the time it filed for bankruptcy. In addition, with Vince McMahon loaning money instead of funding at the end and declaring himself a secured debtor (meaning he gets paid as precedence over unsecured debtors), that leaves even less money for all the companies owed money after the league closed up at the start of the pandemic.

> The three were said to be equal partners, all putting up $5 million for 33.3 percent ownership. Garcia was said to have been the catalyst, as it was her idea to buy the league and she convinced Johnson it would be a good investment. As far as the business goes, it’s basically a gamble that the three are taking that Vince McMahon wasn’t willing to take.

> The situation is the same for the league as it was when McMahon announced restarting. They need to get television deals that can cover the costs of running an entire league. If they can get that, they can make a go of it. If they can’t, it has no chance.

> Those close to the situation say what is different is that McMahon had told people he was willing to lose money for the first three years with a television deal that paid him no money at all. The idea was to get the league exposure, and prove it has ratings power. And then, with that proven, get rights money. The AAF started the year before with the same idea, but ran out of money and when trying to get rights money from its broadcast partners early to keep the league alive, the broadcast partners turned them down.

> McMahon’s XFL started with strong first week numbers, including more than three million viewers for games on FOX and ABC. The numbers were slightly higher than the AAF opened with. Unlike the first XFL in 2000, which was heavily panned by sports people, the league was generally praised. Ratings fell each week, which was expected at first. Ratings were fine for the first four weeks, but week five continued to drop far more than expected and it went from looking good to being very much a concern about the inability to keep its audience.

> The pandemic then came, so the remaining questions were never answered as to how much ratings would fall, and what value the league would have to networks. The numbers were still higher than sports franchises that were getting solid deals, including the MLS, UFC, AEW and even the NHL. Although of that list, the XFL needed far more than the MLS and AEW needed for survival.

> It’s said that the new owners are gambling that Johnson’s name value and ability to sell will get them a paying television deal for the 2021 season, which right now is planned to start in February. The old league had television deals with ABC, ESPN, FOX, FS 1 and FS 2 for games where the broadcast partners paid for production, but McMahon gave them the games for free.

> McMahon had put up $200 million to start the league, so the idea is that he had established the roots and groundwork in major markets and that th purchase price if they could get paying television deals would be remarkably low, so that’s the upside of the gamble.

> The downside is that McMahon had given up on it after five weeks of losses and with all of his experience and reputation in television, he could not get that deal. The fact McMahon felt there was no future in it. He then stopped funding the league, started instead personally loaning money, and then fired its highest paid employee, Oliver Luck, and then shut down and declared bankruptcy leaving a number of people owed money. However, he did order all fans ticket money returned, which meant he was still considering restarting things after the bankruptcy. He admitted consideration when stories …

>Re: @WrestleVotes hinting #WWE may hold #SummerSlam at Amway Center in Orlando:

>I spoke to a rep today who said “as of now” the arena is closed until next year. But said that if something was finalized recently, word would not come down the ranks as of yet. So def. possible.

>Per a source: #WWE is not just exploring #SummerSlam at Amway Center in Orlando, but also utilizing the facility going forward for other events.

>As I noted below, the arena is currently "closed" until next year, which would seemingly mean nothing is on the docket.

>It's worth noting #WWE has saved a ton of money on production costs this year due to not being on the road (per the last quarterly financial report), so if it were a money matter of leasing Amway, that would seem very doable.

>If #WWE could secure some sort of lease at Amway Center, it's not out of the realm to suggest limited fans could eventually return to the tapings given how big the arena is. Plenty of room to social distance. #AEW has been running with some invited guests, distanced.

Who was the first wrestler you latched onto as either a kid or as an adult that hooked you to men in spandex grappling each other?

For me, as a young boy, it was the Hulkster. It was the coke filled promos, the vitamins, the prayers, the brothers, all that nonsense make me a little Hulkamaniac. Although I grew past wearing the yellow and red and exchanged it for the pink and black attack, blessed be the Hulk Hogan for getting me into wrestling

At about 5 or 6 years old, it was Bret. The memory of him winning the '93 KOTR and then the angle with Lawler heeling on him at the coronation is the first ever emotional investment I can recall having in pro wrestling and an individual wrestler. I was so upset lol.
But then when the Owen feud happened a year later I couldn't really understand why Owen was the "baddie" because I am a kid brother to an older brother myself and thus identified with Owen over Bret. That might have been the first leaning of me nudging down the road of being a smart fan, as I as a viewer felt a disconnect from the story that was being dictated to me and I wanted to cheer Owen because I felt a more personal connection to his position, over the guy who was my unabashed #1 prior to that in Bret.
I also remember really liking 123 Kid cos he was a small scrappy underdog who moved fast compared to all the lumbering giants and did cool karate.

Hence why they're expanding their digital distribution to make up for those pre-emptions. I got a feeling they'll end up on a different network after their deal with BeIN ends though I dunno where unless they just stay solely online.

realistically, i can't see them going to any network that would be an "upgrade"
They're on saturday nights on a low level channel, haven't been able to run shows for months, are low budget and keep losing their guys to AEW and WWE and Impact.

If Impact and NWA struggled to find TV deals and WWE/AEW already dominate the market, I can't see a major channel bidding for them... especially with covid ravaging every corporation's budgets.

that's why I feel like the fubo/pluto tv/dazn deals all feel like lifeboats. i feel like mlw might end up hovering around the Championship Wrestling From Hollywood level

I imagine they're gonna have to edit out the entrances or dub them over due to licensing issues. It's interesting that they're finally putting indie wrestling in their library but I don't see it being that big of a draw compared to IWTV or even Impact Plus for indie wrestling.

Who is the best seller in wrestling today? The one who makes you... believe. Well look no other place because pic related.

I gotta say, I'm very impressed by the way MJF sells in the ring. The way he took Jon's finisher and made it look beyond devastating.

It amazes me to learn that MJF is only 24 and he's THIS good. This guy is going to have the brightest futures of all time I'd imagine.

Do we really need these MJF threads every week?

MJF is painfully mediocre. He needs to spend more time on the indies. He's not ready for a big, national stage like AEW yet.

MJF happens to be an incredible seller and doesn't draw the line of Dolph Ziggler when it comes to it.

>Watch AEW Dynamite: Tag Team Appreciation Night 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 preceded by a replay of AEW Dark. On tonight's Dynamite: Tag Team Appreciation Night
  • Tonight is a special episode entitled FTR presents Tag Team Appreciation Night.
  • JERICHO VS ORANGE II: JUDGEMENT DAY: “The DemoGod” Chris Jericho vs. “Freshly Squeezed” Orange Cassidy Each man must put $7,000 of their own money on the line, Inner Circle and Best Friends are 🅱️anned from ringside
  • TNT Championship bout: “The American Nightmare” Cody (c) vs. Scorpio Sky.

  • The Young Bucks vs. The Dark Order's Evil Uno and Stu Grayson.
  • The Rock N' Roll Express, The Brain Busters Tully Blanchard & Arn Anderson to appear.
  • Moxley and MJF to talk some shit
>$7,000 OBLIGATION MATCH...
>***Inner Circle & Best Friends banned from ringside***
>“The DemoGod” Chris Jericho vs. “Freshly Squeezed” Orange Cassidy
Orange Cassidy and Chris Jericho, the self-proclaimed “DemoGod”, have been at each other for many weeks now both inside and outside the ring. Whether at the commentary area, or with an orange juice bath, or through the debate footage embedded above, Cassidy has found his own ways to push Jericho's buttons, and to embarrass the thirty year veteran.

But the one time they competed in the ring one-on-one back at FYTER FEST 2020 NIGHT 2, it was the former AEW World Champion who picked up the win via Judas Effect elbow, the same elbow Orange tasted last week on DYNAMITE. But the difference this week is that there will be no Jake Hager to help Jericho so he doesn't have to get his hands dirty. There won't be a Santana, Ortiz, or Guevara at ringside to help Jericho win and get that $7,000 (what Jericho's OJ soaked jacket costs he claims) because the members of The Inner Circle have been banned from ringside. That being said, The Best Friends of Chuck Taylor and Trent are also barred but it's not as if they would be interfering to help their pal, their presence would serve to rally OC and to counter the members of The IC. Without one, no need for the other...

So with no outside distractions or worries of interference, Orange Cassidy and Chris Jericho will lock up in a greatly anticipated rematch this Wednesday night on DYNAMITE! Can the Freshly Squeezed One make good on his promise to embarrass Jericho once more, this time with a loss to “the guy who puts his hands in his pockets”? Or will it be the original AEW World Champion turning the aspirations of Orange Cassidy to pulp? Either way, each competitor has to do it on his own, without a friend or ally at ringside, and prove who is the better man.

>TNT CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH “The American Nightmare” Cody(c) vs. Scorpio Sky
There is fire, and then there is what Scorpio Sky brings to the table. As fans can see in that video embedded above, this is a man coming to the ring on Wednesday night with a chip on his shoulder, and with a great deal to prove to a locker room, and perhaps an audience, that seems to have forgotten what Sky brings to the table.

Look at his track record since the inception of All Elite Wrestling, and you will see one worthy of top contention for any championship. He was one-half of the first World Tag Team Champions alongside Frankie Kazarian, he was the first man in AEW to pin Chris Jericho back in November in a Tag Team Championship Match. That pinfall earned him a shot at Jericho's AEW World Title, and although Sky was the loser in that contest, he demonstrated to the world that he deserved to be spoken of in that same rarefied air in the singles ranks as Jericho, Moxley, Omega, or Cody, to name a few. It's hard to argue, Sky is 7-1 in singles competition, has essentially made AEW DARK his kingdom, and now he is coming to take Cody's, specifically that TNT Championship Title.

Having just passed his eightieth day as champion, Cody has successfully defended his prize seven times against seven wildly different athletes. Be it the No DQ war with Eddie Kingston, the surprise debut of Ricky Starks, or the jaws from the victory of defeat win over Jake Hager, The American Nightmare has found a way to win no matter what his opponent brought to the table, and has no intention of ending this open challenge anytime soon. In fact, Cody's focus on the TNT Championship has been so laser-like that last week was the first time since winning the title that he competed in a match that wasn't a championship situation.

But it's back to the grind this week after that tag team victory with Matt Cardona, and with a versatile opponent like Scorpio Sky standing across the ring, there is a good chance this could be the night Cody's kingdom comes tumbling down, and Sky beats The American Nightmare for the first time in their careers.

>AEW TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH: Kenny Omega & Hangman Page (c) vs. (#5) Jurassic Express (Luchasaurus & Jungle Boy w/ Marko Stunt)
Sitting at the number five spot in the tag team rankings, Jurassic Express will receive their very first opportunity at the AEW World Tag Team Titles this Wednesday night on DYNAMITE, and on an evening dubbed TAG TEAM APPRECIATION NIGHT, this championship contest will certainly have extra special attention. The eyes of the two legendary tag teams mentioned at the top of the article will certainly be watching, as well as those of FTR as they aim for future shots at the championship. Safe bet to say every tag team will be watching this bout to see if Hangman Page and Kenny Omega will make it any deeper into their 200-plus day title reign that began January 21st on the Jericho Cruise.

Adding another layer to this match-up, as if they championship wasn't enough, is the actions of Kenny Omega towards the third member of JurEx, Marko Stunt, several weeks ago. As seen in the video embedded above, Omega inexplicably lost it on Stunt after The Elite defeated Jurassic Express in Trios competition. It was a side of Kenny that has barely been glimpsed in AEW, something his Elite compatriots even mention in the most recent BEING THE ELITE episode (Watch Here), and left quite a foul taste in the mouths of the Jungle Boy and Luchasaurus.

>AEW brought in real fans for this week’s episode of Dynamite. A very limited number of people were allowed to attend the event.

>A fan noticed that the audience in attendance was not practicing social distancing at the event. They posted a picture of audience members being seated close to each other during the show: https://twitter.com/MercWithAMouthq/status/1293713535843946496

>Twitter user Jessi Davin who was one of the people in attendance for the show, responded to this fan. Devin said that the people seated next to each other belong to the same family.

>According to Devin, a team was monitoring the seating area and ensuring that the fans’ mask placements were correct throughout the show:
"Groups of families were seated together. Sectioned were laid out beforehand and the rest was taped off. Mask enforcement was there correcting people’s masks placement the entire night."

>Davin said that the company knew beforehand about who was attending their show. She also said that she and her husband felt very safe throughout the show.
"Parties were grouped together and socially distanced between each group. They had it planned out beforehand because they had to know who was coming. Do not let the camera angle fool you. I felt very safe and so did my husband. #AEWDynamite"

>It looks like AEW has a distinct set of safety measures laid out for the select amount of people they’re allowing to attend the show. However, there are many fans online who have been criticizing the company for this move.

CMLL returns to Friday night shows (as iPPVs) starting September 4th, Aniversario on 25th features title matches
>CMLL delivered on their big news today on CMLL Informa, announcing both the Aniversario concept and a partial return to regular shows.

>CMLL will return to running Friday night shows starting September 4th. The shows will air on Ticketmaster Live, a new-ish streaming service set up by the ticket broker site. There’s no price announced. Ticketmaster does not yet list the shows. Events on the service run from 150 to 400 pesos. It appears Ticketmaster allows international purchases, though every show may be different.

>Previous attempts on CMLL iPPVs have been a struggle. Ticketmaster is doing this full time, has an existing relationship with CMLL, and this now has to be a top priority instead of just a side project. If CMLL iPPVs had to try iPPVs again – and they pretty much have to if they’re going to run shows – this is probably the best show they have at getting it to work. (If they are successful, it does open up the possibility of CMLL sticking with Friday night iPPVs even when shows go back to normal, but that’s an issue for another day.)

>These are currently empty arena shows. CMLL is hoping they’ll be able to have some fans. They announced a plan to fill the building to 30% capacity (5000 people) if permitted by the local government. Mexico’s original plan was not to allow attendance at indoor events until they reached Green health conditions. That’s no close to happening – Mexico City would have to go to Yellow on Friday for it to arrive in time for Aniversario – but Mexico City has also moved to allow movie theatres to allow 30% capacity. I’m not confident in the science of that decision, but a 30% full wrestling building seems about as safe as a 30% movie theatre. CMLL may get those fans. Nothing is for sure until we get to those shows.

>CMLL will run on September 4th, 11th, 18th, and 25th. The last date is the CMLL Aniversario show. There will be no mask or hair match, as expected by those paying attention to the economic situation. CMLL will instead have an all title match card, with challengers selected by the fans. CMLL fan polls have led to fan mischief in the past, though CMLL can also handle the situation by carefully choosing the challengers. CMLL will also have to decide which of their two dozen champions will defend.

>CMLL’s commercial for these shows emphasizes they’ll be running some 1v1 single fall matches, which is unusual for only them. They’ll be running 2v2 and 3v3 too. We know nothing else about the matches. Or even the number of those matches. With over 100 wrestlers and only one show a week, there’s going to be a lot of competition for a few spots. It will also be a competition to get eyeballs on iPPV: will they go with a comfortable lineup like the show this past week, or will they feel a necessity to offer more significant matches to get fans to pay?

>CMLL’s probably not going to change too much. I expect we won’t get a full card for a couple of weeks, though leaking out a match or two a week fits with the typical CMLL Informa style. Maybe watch those Informa lineups to see who’s wrestling first.

Looks like CMLL is joining NWA in doing weekly IPPVs starting next month. Guess we'll see how things go with them running shows with those restrictions in place.

Let's say a typical and lapsed fan of WWE/WWF who knows you like pro wrestling but assumes there is only WWE, could even be a girl trying to get to know you better, asks you about this pro wrestling interest and wants to see how into it you are?

What would you have to say as of right now, and would you be able to inform them of the general climate surrounding all competitive brands/companies considered?

Me, personally, would have to bounce back and forth connecting 2010-2020 by having to describe the Pipebomb first and foremost, without going full shoot promo about the OG Summer of Punk in ROH and everything, and then would eventually be where we are now and have to start connecting the dots between WCW and the MNW with very little needing to be said about its end or 2002-2010 when essentially all there was to the average person was WWE.

I'd try explaining ECW in the 90s and how it set the tone for all the wildness we know the Attitude Era for, and a little bit about the 70s and 80s territories and how it all got snuffed out for the monopolization to succeed until things became more spread out again, except on a global scale rather than just US territories.

I would explain how unbearable things were from 2006-2010 with only John Cena going over every fan favorite there was to an obscenely oversaturated degree, and why the Pipebomb seemed like a fan's perspective on things actually mattered for a moment in time and how the "Reality Era" came to fruition following it, only for things to become too focused on a fan's reality and lead us to where we are now with real-world politics and other factors playing a role in many characters.

The Silver Lining in all of that being that Women's matches are at the very least not a complete joke and they actually can put on some good matches nowadays after the industry received all the necessary criticisms. I'd explain there were plenty promotions to do it before anyways, and that there is all too much history all over the world to just sum up Pro Wrestling in an Epigram, at any capacity, but simply put, it can be a lot more in depth and interesting than people would ever assume at a glance.
Although, Meltzer is the one person to handle such a mighty feat over all these years.


Lastly I'd probably want to watch Dark Side of the Ring as well as some generally fun stuff with it and would have to show a good Botchamania or two.
That's just me, I dont know, wbu /wooo/?
