*puts on tinfoil hat*

so does this "NJPW are still mad at TNA for stuff that happened years ago" news from Meltzer feel kinda unnecessary? He doesn't actually know that, he's just speculating, and it's much more likely due to NJPW's partnerships with ROH and CMLL.

but timing wise, it couldn't come at a worse time for Impact who are running Slammiversary next to NJPW in Dallas. If your strategy was to stop NJPW fans from buying tickets to see Impact, then you couldn't have a better way of doing it than the way Meltzer has reported this story.

Agreed. They obviously like Don a lot to continue bringing him in even after he became an exec at Impact, so if they were open to working with companies other than ROH in the US (well... canada...) they would probably be open to talking to Don.

Plus, didn't they let Ishimori work some Impact shows shortly after he signed with NJPW, using the Bullet Club gimmick? Or did he like... still have contractual obligations to Impact at that time?

TNA fans suffer from an extreme victim complex. Even though everyone agrees (even Meltzer and Alvarez) Impact is in the top 3 weekly wrestling shows, if not the best wrestling show today, they still have to be angry and upset when people correctly point out their low viewership and shit tv station. They’ll shit all over WWEs low viewership and abysmal dog ass product, but they can’t take it when people mock them for touting 12k viewers on Twitch.

you got it backward
people keep talking about tv ratings (not always correctly, mind you) as if they're the ultimate indicator of quality forgetting that the show had to jump from tv deal to tv deal regardless of how it was received, killing most of the casual userbase
cry muh victim complex all you want, but almost all discussions i had about impact here are about people reminiscing stuff from 7-10 years ago that "burned them too many times :(" which is laughable because the show has been consistently good for more than half a decade now and they'd be ready to jump at the first booking mistake to remind you that "tna is always tna"

I wasn't planning on watching. If Laredo Kid was in a singles with someone who can work his match, that might have changed my mind. The trios will probably be good but it's not the same kind of draw.

So, from the perspective that I'm not going to see this anyway... I'm hoping that the women's match is an effort to build up Nyla. CIMA and Daniels will probably have the best match of the night. I don't what they're thinking with that pre-show. Overall the card lacks variety - though that's common for North American wrestling at the moment - but they might have an unannounced match to help break it up. (e.g. If they're going to drop in a comedy match there's no point in trying to use that to sell tickets.) Overall, it probably doesn't matter how good this show is because the people who were going to buy it are going to buy it and the people who weren't are not.

>PWInsider reports that Major League Wrestling (MLW) has parted ways with Sammy Guevara. According to a source close to MLW, Guevara double-booked himself on certain MLW dates, including the Superfight event. As a result, both parties decided the best move was for them to go their separate ways.

>Meltzer also reports that Puma King is done with the promotion as he double booked himself during WrestleMania Weekend. Puma King reportedly booked himself from WrestleCon and MLW on Apr. 4. Mike Johnson of PWInsider confirmed that Puma King is finished with the company, noting that "it would have been impossible to push him if they couldn't be assured that MLW was his priority." ... Regarding Puma King, we’ve confirmed that all issues regarding his booking for the WrestleCon super shows on MLW on the same day were taken care of, that he was to work early on the WrestleCon shows to give him time to make it to MLW, but MLW decided against using him going forward. MLW told Puma King that it was a budgetary reason he wouldn’t be used. It’s interesting because MLW has been heavily going after the Mexican audience, and Puma King was one of the few Mexican stars they were using. ... Court Bauer continued to claim that Puma King was not taken off shows for budgetary reasons. He said he told Konnan to tell Puma King that he was taken off shows because he double-booked himself. However, several people involved have told us that Puma King had booked dates with WrestleCon before he got MLW dates, and when he got the MLW dates, WrestleCon and Konnan worked everything out so he could do both shows. He and those close to the situation thought there was no issue until reading in the Observer that he was no longer being used. They claim Konnan told Puma King he wasn’t being used any longer for budgetary reasons. Bauer said that’s not the case and Puma King was not an expensive piece of talent and they are going to bring in a new wrestler from Mexico in his spot as a replacement who they will be paying roughly the same for.

>Lucha star Daga is done with Major League Wrestling. Daga was booked for the promotion's 6/1 date in Wisconsin, but pulled out at the last second, citing that he had scheduled a vacation. MLW sources claimed they later learned he was actually working dates in Mexico instead and have dropped him from all future bookings. As you might imagine, the DAGA side takes issue with the MLW version of events that led to the lucha star's departure. We'll have more on that shortly.

>MLW confirmed shortly after that Rush had been pulled from his scheduled match against La Park during WrestleMania weekend and would be replaced by Pentagon Jr. “With great reluctance Rush has been forced to withdraw from his April 4th match against LA Park,” MLW wrote. “Despite efforts by MLW, Rush was pulled due to the insistence of a third party promoter.” MLW CEO Court Bauer added, “This is a match and organization Rush wanted to be a part of, but sometimes politics get in the way and that’s what this comes down to: politics.”

>The inaugural Fight for the Right Tournament in 2006 consisted of three stages. The first stage of the tournament was a Reverse Battle Royal, with three parts. The first part had all 18 participants start outside the ring and fend off opponents in an attempt to get into the ring. When seven wrestlers have entered, other competitors are eliminated and it becomes a traditional battle royal with over-the-top-rope eliminations. When all but two are eliminated, it becomes a singles match, the winner of which advances directly to the final (third stage) of the tournament. Stage two consists of a single-elimination tournament consisting of the six wrestlers eliminated in the second part of stage one. The pairings were determined by their order of elimination in the first stage. The first round featured singles matches and the final was a Triple Threat match. The winner of the tournament is then decided in the tournament final: a singles match between the winner of stages one and two.

Not one person has ever listed Scarlett Bordeaux as a reason to watch IMPACT. She's purely eye candy. Someone like her leaving just isn't a big deal.

They've signed numerous guys and girls to longer contracts in the last couple of months, but yeah it's LOLTNA because some girl who takes up 2 minutes of a weekly show wanted to leave. I don't even think they used her on a single PPV.

Kross would be a miss because that guy is money, but if WWE are willing to give him big money to spend 2-3 years in NXT and he's happy to do that, what can IMPACT do? They're not going to fuck up their whole pay structure to keep a guy like Kross happy who was a literal nobody a year ago. That is poor management and business and that's the kinda thing that will piss off the rest of the locker room and cause bad morale.

tbh, Scarlett isn't that good of a wrestler and was fun as eye candy doing impact vignettes, managing Fallah and fighting ove and Disco. Her options are WWE or AEW or bust. MLW is Impact on a smaller budget AND NO WOMENS DIVISION. ROH is purgatory and she'd just be involved with the Allure LOL.

>With Scarlett Bordeaux being granted her release, the natural question that has been asked is whether Killer Kross is receiving one as well. We have been told by multiple Impact Wrestling sources today that at this point, Kross will not be receiving a release and will continue to work for the company.

>There were some in the company unhappy that Petey Williams provided Kross the forum on his podcast to speak out about his issues with the company, specifically since Williams is not just a talent but a Producer. As previously noted, there's been unhappiness that Kross spoke out at all in the interview.

>With Rafael Morfi departing to work for AEW full-time after Slammiversary weekend, the company will be seeking someone new to handle their live event bookings. Currently, we are told the company has all their TV taping and PPV dates and venues through October locked in so there is no immediate rush to find someone.

>In regard to rumors of Davey Boy Smith Jr. potentially coming in, there's been interest in him going back several years in him. There's no word whether he is coming in. Smith is currently under a MLW deal.

She can have more success elsewhere. She's already on AEW's radar as she worked All In. No doubt she'd be offered more money there, weekly tv on TNT vs whatever Impact is on these days. Seems a no brainer to me. Impact is small time and she's unique enough to be more than small time.

>Impact picked her up because she got some buzz on the indies
is that supposed be a bad thing for Impact?

And newsflash: the indies are not that big. even if Impact is only pulling a few thousand on twitch thats still more than the few hundred that saw her on Powerbomb TV's stream of black label pro.

> She's already on AEW's radar as she worked All In. No doubt she'd be offered more money there
If AEW wanted her, they would have made her an offer already. She was free agent up until a month ago. If AEW really wanted her, they would have offered more than what Impact was offering.

They didn't do those things. Impact gave her the better deal.

>She can have more success elsewhere.... weekly tv on TNT
you're already so sure that AEW's TV show is going to be at a certain level of success when it doesn't even exist yet. There's no air date yet, no running time yet, no indication of how many segments non-joshi women will be getting on TV each week.
They've already got a handful of female talents signed.

And the reality is: Impact's knockouts are better wrestlers than AEW's women wrestlers. I'd put Tessa, Taya, Madison, Rosemary & Havok above Britt Baker, Allie and Penelope Ford. Gail Kim's a better agent than Brandi Rhodes

your point was nobody would know who she was before Impact which is pure bollocks.

>If AEW really wanted her, they would have offered more than what Impact was offering.
Nobody knew she was not under contract during that time until recently so I doubt she got offers from places that thought she was under contract since offers don't magically end contracts.

>you're already so sure that AEW's TV show is going to be at a certain level of success when it doesn't even exist yet.
it's on TNT, multitudes more viewers, way more eyeballs on you. Even if the show ends up a dud if you perform well in the ring your career will benefit more than it would staying in a going nowhere promotion like Impact.

>Impact's knockouts are better wrestlers than AEW's women wrestlers.
One division is brand new and has had one match, the other is established. It'd be embarrassing if Impact's division wasn't better

>I'd put Tessa, Taya, Madison, Rosemary & Havok above Britt Baker, Allie and Penelope Ford.
You'll see most of them in AEW over the next couple of years anyway. Like I said, Impact is small time in comparison. It's now a stepping stone that you will see more men and women use as things move forward.

somebody else made that point friendo, but if you want to get literal, then yes it wasn't "nobody" but Impact 100% boosted her platform in a way that not even being in the all in battle royal did.

>Nobody knew she was not under contract during that time until recently
lol. if you're not under contract, you're allowed to talk about it. Jordynne Grace did press when she signed explaining that she was fielding offers from impact and aew and liked what impact had to offer her more.

>Even if the show ends up a dud if you perform well in the ring your career will benefit more than it would staying in a going nowhere promotion like Impact.
So its better for her career to be in a widely seen dud as opposed to a lesser-seen better reviewed promotion?

> It'd be embarrassing if Impact's division wasn't better... You'll see most of them in AEW over the next couple of years anyway.
lmao you'll do anything to discredit Impact for any positive won't you?

>As noted last week on PWInsider.com, Major League Wrestling dropped Daga from their roster, unhappy that he had told them he was unavailable for dates due to a vacation when they were starting a heel turn for him, only to learn he had wrestled in Mexico.

>In speaking today with Tessa Blanchard, who is dating Daga, PWInsider.com was told that MLW was informed well in advance that Daga was not available for the date in question, 6/1, as he was going to be in Guadalajara, Mexico for the christening of Rey Fenix's son. Fenix was involved in an event the next day in the same city and since Daga and Blanchard were in town for the christening, they stayed and worked the show as a favor for Fenix, as did Puma King, Pentagon Jr. and others who were in town for his son's christening.

>Blanchard noted that Daga loved working for MLW and would still want to continue there if given the opportunity. She also noted that one of his goals is to get more work this year inside the United States and there was concern that the MLW situation would lead to other promoters thinking Daga couldn't be trusted to take dates in the States. She felt that there was a belief in MLW that Daga didn't take the date because he'd be more comfortable staying in Mexico, but he was only in Guadalajara for the christening.

>PWInsider.com has reached out to MLW for comment and should they choose to respond, we will add it to this story.

They want to get paid more. TNA said no, so they asked for their release.

After resigning a contract last year, Kross wanted to restructure his contract to six figures over a three year deal. Impact countered with an offer for three years that would've totaled at less than a one year NXT contract, which is $45,000. It also came out that TNA is allegedly paying talent between $250 - $500 with no guaranteed dates.

Basically, Impact exists not to have career minded talent, but wrestlers who want exposure and are willing to work an indy grind schedule to earn money, with the idea being that TNA offers you the chance to gain more fans and a bigger name.

Kross and Bordeaux are looking to work exclusively for a company that can offer them a living wage without having to work indy dates. Kross has said that he's recently had to take on a bigger financial commitment for his family, so he needs a more secure paycheck than $300 and exposure on Twitch.

He signed the contract though, so he brought this on himself, even if the contract is total shit. All alleged, btw. Kross did an interview where he talks about the situation.

>Impact countered with an offer for three years that would've totaled at less than a one year NXT contract, which is $45,000.

whether these numbers are true or not, it should be reminded that Impact are not expecting their talent to show up 5 days a week 4 weeks a month to work. They are contracted for tv tapings only. which are like 2-5 days a month. Comparing it to WWE is a comparison that only goes so far.

>It also came out that TNA is allegedly paying talent between $250 - $500 with no guaranteed dates.

not the long term talent for sure. If you're a loyal and long term worker for Impact, like Eddie, Moose, Tessa, etc you probably have one of the best contracts in wrestling when it comes to money per appearance.


>Kross and Bordeaux are looking to work exclusively for a company that can offer them a living wage without having to work indy dates.

Gresham is head trainer of the ROH Dojo so it makes sense to re-sign him and he'd still be able to wrestle for NJPW. Maria Manic isn't that great though but god, the Women of Honor division is a dumpster fire.

figure its worth highlighting these quotes from Eli Drake that came out yesterday. So this is *after* he was fired by Impact and potentially held with a non compete:

>"As far as backstage, the morale has always been good. It's very relaxed backstage. No one's walking on eggshells and there's no one stabbing another in the back. It's always been really good."

As for those rumors that Impact was always about to go out of business, Drake reasoned why those were so common.
>"I feel like that's just the new Twitter troll environment that we've created. They wish bad upon other people because misery loves company. Those aren't real wrestling fans because if they were, you wouldn't want to see a company go away," said Drake.

>"I will say, since Anthem came in the actual structure of everything seemed a little more sturdy. Even when we heard those [rumors] again, we thought, 'Okay, we're good.'"

>"I was one of the top paid guys at Impact, thankfully. With that money, I invested a bunch of it and I've been taking classes on learning day trading with stocks," stated Drake. "I was thinking about getting into real estate, but that's a little bit too much of an investment right now. But I've been day trading stocks and I've been doing it pretty successfully."

so this is interesting...

I was just checking out KM on Twitter to see if he was putting Impact on blast any more since last week. He's not trashing them but he has been arguing with people for like a week, explaining that Impact has problems and he wants them to get fixed.

He's also plugging a lot of appearances he's doing *with* Scarlett & KM (https://twitter.com/Superstar_KM/status/1137241308748271616 + https://twitter.com/Superstar_KM/status/1140722911164207104 + https://twitter.com/Superstar_KM/status/1140700026311729152)

And then in one of these arguments he's having, he just randomly drops the fact that he's Scarlett's booking agent
If that's the case, it makes a sense that the three of them are unhappy together and putting the company on blast publicly together

What KM's saying about Impact being in dire straits as a business is absolutely true and not exactly blasting the company. Anthem bought a money mark promotion that had been losing money for years and have been doing everything they can to cut costs and increase revenue. Some of that is positive - their new merchandise actually looks like stuff that I'd be caught dead in - and some of it is negative stuff like clamping down on wages.

They probably have a long way to go before becoming the kind of promotion that Kross and Scarlett want to work for. On the flip side the people who want to be completely exclusive are going to shuffle off to WWE or AEW and Impact will be left with indie wrestlers who are happy to take the monthly taping as part of their schedule.

BASED but what of Cornette?
>This summer one of wrestling’s most beloved voices returns to the broadcast booth to call Major League Wrestling’s flagship weekly series MLW FUSION.

>Major League Wrestling confirmed today that legendary commentator Tony Schiavone returns to the airwaves this July alongside Rich Bocchini.

>Revered as one of the sport’s most iconic voices, Schiavone has anchored the broadcast team for MLW FUSION on and off since the series premiered on beIN SPORTS in April 2018.

>“Just like the fans, I’ve been hoping for Tony’s return and this summer it happens,” said MLW CEO Court Bauer. “Tony is one of the most talented broadcasters in the sport.”

>Major League Wrestling’s flagship series MLW FUSION airs on beIN SPORTS Saturday nights at 9pm EST / 6pm PST.

>A television and radio sports broadcaster for decades, Tony has called some of the sport’s most memorable matches and moments. A lifelong fan, Tony has worked for WCW, Jim Crockett Promotions and WWE on air as a play-by-play man as well as behind the scenes as a TV producer.

>In January 2017, Tony debuted his popular weekly podcast on the MLW Radio Network available every Monday called What Happened When with his podcasting tag team partner Conrad Thompson.

>When not podcasting, Tony can be heard in the booth for the Gwinnett Stripers. Tony also works for Sports Radio 92.9 The Game and can be heard anchoring sports each morning on Atlanta’s Morning News as well as hosting Pro Wrestling Wednesday. Tony is a member of the Georgia Bulldogs Radio Network and works on the post game show during both home and away games.

>Tony also writes and produces the Best of the Bulldogs, which won the AP Award for Best Sports Program in 2004. In 2006, Tony won the Georgia Association of Broadcaster Award for Best Sports Story or Series.

>Impact will be left with indie wrestlers who are happy to take the monthly taping as part of their schedule.

very strange wording on your part, but more accurately, Impact (and ROH and MLW) will have the pick of indie wrestlers who won't be in AEW or WWE for whatever reason (not necessarily because they aren't good enough, wrestling is a very petty industry). For the very best, they will be able to offer them very generous contracts based on their expected rate of appearance.

Well Taya is right. Scarlett and Killer Kross seem to think they are gods gift to this earth and that kind of attitude isn't going to go well for them down the line. Don Callis is also really close with Kenny Omega and some of the AEW guys. I'm not sure what they think they are doing by causing all this bullshit. Stuff like this doesn't go unnoticed. Not respecting the company that built you and gaev you a platform is bad sportsmanship and I'm curious to see what happens with those two. Hope they end up in WWE purgatory tbh.

>It's no secret that things haven't gone well between Impact and Pursuit which was highlighted by the network airing a re-run of Impact instead of a new episode recently. That has sparked more conversation about Impact needing to find a new home and Konnan addressed why Pursuit isn't the best option when he spoke to Wrestling Inc. on today's edition of our WINCLY podcast.
"First of all no one can get the channel and second of all it's a hunting channel," said Konnan. "It doesn't matter how good you are if no one is watching you. And that's a problem because we're real good right now. …No one can really see it unless you get it on Twitch and a lot of people don't wanna go on Twitch. So, I think them looking for a better platform, which I think they will find, will help image-wise, morale-wise and people will be watching a really good product."

>Konnan was asked which specific channel would be better, but he wouldn't say it because he doesn't want to give it away before Impact announces it.
"Just about anything…you could be on MTV3 and that would be better than being there," Konnan said of Pursuit.
"The place they are going is substantially better."

nah dude. they hired literally whos from AAA and within a year everyone knows who they are now. So they are bitching and moaning and posting photos of them on tropical islands getting back massages and studying weird monk traditions to look deep and interesting. Killer Kross's twitter is a amazing show and has been for a long time. They think they deserve more and maybe they do but when you are not thankful for the company that gave them a spotlight to begin with it makes you a pig headed ego driven nut sack. They're both obsessed with themselves.

When everyone else in the locker room seems to be happy it really says something. What team do you want to be on? KM, Killer Kross and Scarlett or Don Callis, Jordyne Grace, Tessa, LAX and the many others who say they enjoy working for impact.

if they were literally whos, then why book them at all beyond doing the job a few times? Especially in a time period where they're not papering the attendance anymore, come on, use your head.

So if everyone else is happy getting paid in hot dogs and handshakes, then they should be as well? That's a stupid argument.

Don't turn this into some kind of us vs them bullshit. If it's better for them to leave Impact, then let them go. You're making a mountain out of a molehill.

They were nobodies. Killer Kross and Scarlett Bourdeaux were not well known in the wrestling world. Period. Impact gave them an outlet to get their names out their and it worked. Maybe you should use YOUR head. The rest of your post is yellow texting anything I said and saying "lol" after. Killer Kross and Scarlett are egomaniacs who want more money because they refuse to work indie dates yet they work for a company that gives them 5 matches a month. Impact is not AEW. Impact is not NJPW. Impact is not WWE. It's not even ROH. They did nothing wrong but Kross and Scarlett slandering their name and being babies about the contracts THEY signed which gave their names better stock in the wrestling world is a shit move. People will notice this. Don't shit on the people that gave you the option to even go elsewhere.

I'm saying Killer Kross and Scarlett were not as well known as they are now before Impact. The wrestling world is now much more aware of them and like Taya was hinting at on her twitter post. You should remember those who gave you the stage to be who you wanted to be and not cry your way out of a contract because you think you are better.

well i just did and aside from his AAA dates which count as indies for obvious reasons and killer kross worked 8 dates from the beginning of 2019 and a two weeks tour with cwe
amounting to a total of 40 matches in half a year
only twelve of those were from impact
thas two matches a month
how can you tell me with a straight face that killer kross isn't in the wrong here complaining about getting paid too little? of course guys like edwards, page and jordynne get paid more, they're also booked to wrestle more and impact should be entitled to use him as much as they please
like, sure you could say that maybe he deserves to be paid more per appearance, but what has he done to deserve it? he's not a former wwe guy, he's not a loyalist, he doesn't draw and he thinks his shit doesnt stink only because now cody is in pillaging mode and he's waiting to be called from him

I dunno, maybe he deserves to be paid more because he's a fairly young decent worker with a good look and a unique character who can cut a promo and there's not a lot of guys in Impact who combine all that. Maybe he deserves to be paid more because Impact has already lost one of their top guys in the last few months and are so desperate for talent that they're bringing in guys like TJP and Michael Elgin that literally no one else wants and fucking 48-year old RVD is one of their top faces. Maybe he deserves to be paid more because he, along with LAX, Fallah Baah, Eddie Edwards, and maybe Moose, is one of the only Impact talents that actually feels like a guy Impact built and not just somebody they grabbed off the indies and didn't change anything about.

>he's not a former wwe guy
That would seem like a positive, if anything

>he's not a loyalist

it seems like you just want to be mad about this. Killer Kross is in no spot to be asking for a raise. If he wants more money then he can leave. Which he is doing. That's not even the problem. The main problem is the way him and scarlett are shitting on Impact when all Impact did was book him in the main event and treat him like a star the entire time while letting scarlett grow in her gimmick. They should be leaving on better terms is what I am getting at. Shitting on the place that built you is dumb as shit and just makes you look bad. Doubles down on the ego self righteous stuff.

Was talking about Drake, but sure you can throw in Aries too since he was literally the top heel in the company before he left. Impact does not even remotely have the roster depth to be throwing people away at this point
>i do, they're good wrestlers
Aries was a good wrestler and Alberto really did move the needle when they were there too, doesn't change the fact that bringing in guys that have burned bridges everywhere else doesn't usually end well and is the definition of scraping the bottom of the barrel
>opener acts
Currently feuding with Moose, who's what, #3 on the heel depth chart? Seems like a main eventer to me

OVE, Swann, Cage, The North, Grace, Taya, Tessa are all valuable in various ways but aren't doing anything notably different from the indie acts they do or have done in a million other places. They don't feel special to Impact at all imo

not even the hardest tna/impact hater could think that aries leaving was a negative thing for the company, don't kid yourself

they don't have the largest roster in the history of the company but they're still hiring/using more people than they're losing
>Currently feuding with Moose, who's what, #3 on the heel depth chart? Seems like a main eventer to me
with johnny impact as champion, elgin contending and ove doing an intergender feud he's a midcard act at best
>OVE, Swann, Cage, The North, Grace, Taya, Tessa are all valuable in various ways but aren't doing anything notably different from the indie acts they do or have done in a million other places. They don't feel special to Impact at all imo
they have storylines, which is what matters the most, LAX having a months long blood feud with the lucha bros is nowhere near the same as the two teams having a random match at some indie show, plus no, cage and tessa are absolutely not booked in the same way as he is in the indies, they feel like way bigger deals instead of being just another guy
>Depends on the guy, and Impact doesn't have the money or leverage to bring in the kind of ex-WWE guy that would actually move the needle at all
thats debatable, impact is in a position where they're very small, but being able to promote a known name on a weekly show does turn a few heads
>Grace hasn't even been in Impact a year and Rayne just came back after being gone for 2 and only did so because WWE didn't want her and ROH is an unlivable hellhole for women, in what world do they count as loyalists
madyson is literally the wife of the head commentator and despite being in and out for a few times she's been almost a costant presence for the history of most of the company
jordynne is young but she signed a years long contract and she's openly in good terms with the company so even if she's not a loyalist to the level of the veterans she's a good long term assett

It used to be smarks thought every wrestler deserved a turn as world champion and everyone was booked strong and no one should ever job because jobbing is "burying"

Now smarks think every wrestler deserves six figures regardless of performance, tenure and company.

You're gonna have to support unionizing if you want that.
BTW do we know how much non Elite guys are making for AEW? Is Brandon Cutler really making six figures?

not a terrible deal to push their new network tbh
also slammiversary is very close to selling out looking at the ticket sites, which if i'm not wrong should be at around 2000/2500 seats, making it impact's largest gate in a while
good for them

doesn't the cable company set the price for the PPVs? I don't think Impact can undercut the cost of the PPV without pissing off PPV providers (thats what happened when Vince launched the network)

Impact is just trying to find a way to add value to a $40 price point.

And beside what even is an "acceptable" price for PPV? People bitched about DON costing even more and thats unanimously praised sight unseen without TNA stink. Just because WWE tanked the value of Wrestlemania, it doesn't mean wrestling PPVs should be no more than $10

Big shows are still worth big price points and Slammiversary is one of two big Impact shows (and typically much better than BFG). Plus, since Redemption 2018, Impact had kinda earned back the value of their quarterly PPVs

> On Monday 6/24 United States District Judge Waverly D. Crenshaw made several rulings in the Jeff Jarrett and Global Wrestling Entertainment’s lawsuit against Impact Wrestling’s parent company Anthem Sports & Entertainment.

> Several of the rulings were in Anthem’s favor. Anthem had been arguing that they did not fall under Tennessee’s jurisdiction, despite three sets of discovery requested by the plaintiffs and having to produce over 12,000 pages of documents. Judge Waverly agreed with Anthem, ruling with prejudice that Anthem Sports was dismissed from that count of the lawsuit for failure to state a claim or a lack of subject matter jurisdiction.

> The Judge also ruled that Jarrett and GWE’s allegations of copyright infringement were also dismissed. Anthem had argued that since GWE and Jarrett failed to copyright and trademark their GFW Amped! TV tapes and since Jarrett provided a license for Anthem to use the tapes, there could be no trademark infringement. Anthem argued that by law, Jarrett & GWE should have filed their copyrights or have been refused registration in order to claim copyright infringement in court. Since neither had happened – as Jarrett does not have physical possession of the GFW master tapes, which Impact has already admitted they deleted – Anthem argued that claim could not go forward in court. The court sided with Anthem and dismissed that count.

> All the remaining allegations against Anthem remain and are moving forward.

> Those allegations, as previously reported, include claims that Impact and Anthem violated state and federal trademark infringements in relation to GFE, violated Jeff Jarrett’s exclusive property rights to his own name, photograph, and other likeness, that Anthem has used “a reproduction, counterfeit, copy, or colorable imitation of the GLOBAL FORCE WRESTLING and GFW trademarks” in commerce, therefore they are in violation of the Lanham Act, which prohibits trademark infringement, trademark dilution, and false advertising. The lawsuit also claimed violation of the Lanham Act through alleged “acts of unfair competition” that were done “with the intent to deceive the public into believing that goods and services offered or sold by Defendants are made by, approved by, sponsored by, or affiliated with GFE.”

> The lawsuit also alleges that Anthem has "caused products and/or services to enter interstate commerce designated with variations" of the Global Force Wrestling and GFW trademarks. The filing claimed, "Defendants’ use of said designation and other representations constitute a false designation of origin which is likely to cause confusion, to cause mistake, and to deceive as to the affiliation, connection, or association of Defendants with GFE and as to the origin, sponsorship, or approval of such goods and services by GFE." This allegation would be an alleged violation of the Lanham Act.

> Yesterday, all sides were ordered to have all written discovery and deposition of all witnesses completed by 12/6. The court is also requesting that all expert witnesses be identified and disclosed by the same date with the depositions of those expert witnesses completed before 1/13/20.

>In regard to the debuting Timothy Thatcher's status, he has not signed with the company. MLW is interesting in signing him obviously, but as of yet, there's no contract involved. Thatcher keeps himself extremely busy internationally.

>Jimmy Havoc will return to the company at the 7/25 TV taping at the Melrose Ballroom in New York City.

There's definitely some rumblings from people that used to be fans. AEW also has crossover appeal with the gaming community, which is easy to get into and a very loyal demographic. Being that Omega has a presence in it, I think that has peaked some interest in people that haven't watched in a long time.

This. I've gotten heat for saying it on here from the types that brag about not seeing "capeshit" movies and all that, but pro wrestling needs to embrace and be embraced by geek culture if it wants to reach its full potential for popularity and drawing power. You need those 20 and 30 somethings that are willing to spend a lot of entertainment dollars on your product.

I go to plenty of cons from NYCC to small local ones, and while wrestling often has a presence, some old timers signing autographs and taking pictures mostly, it's a niche within a niche. What I always wonder is why very few promotions actually run wrestling shows at cons. Space considerations aside, you have a new and receptive audience to reach out to.

the twitch channel will continue to stream old stuff 24/7 and still do live events. but i doubt its going to stream the latest episodes or if it does, it will be on much longer delay like 7 days or more.

Same goes for Impact Plus and the PlutoTV channels. Those are great ways to show case the libraries and do internet-exclusive bonus content, but AXS will probably be paying some money to be the **exclusive** home to Impact's weekly show in the US.

(Its also gonna be tricky because AXS is also on the air in Canada and Mexico and Impact has existing good deals in those countries)

>“This is a chance for MLW to make a statement,” said Bauer. “We want to give value to our fans. That’s why we’re charging only $19.95.”

>Available on all cable and dish carriers in the United States and Canada, Bauer is also in ongoing conversations for a deal to stream worldwide.

Didn't know Impact was doing Bound for Glory in Chicago again. Looks like it's taking place at the Odeum Sports and Convention Expo Center in Villa Park, which is where ROH does their shows. Not expecting the place to sell out though.

>Leva Bates and Peter Avalon didn’t impress many fans with their Librarian gimmick during the AEW Fyter Fest Buy In special. Some people remarked that they had “go away” heat. As it turns out “Go Away Heat” was the title of the newest episode of Being The Elite: https://youtu.be/IvdVWdAPnYU

>During the show’s intro, The Young Bucks were shown writing out their long-term booking plans. Just when Nick Jackson was about to cross the Librarians off the list, Leva Bates came in and said that fans loved the gimmick and she thanked the Bucks for this great opportunity and role before giving them a hug and going away.

>This is when Nick Jackson admitted he was about to nix them, but he’s considering them for a year-long storyline. Matt Jackson said that they should do a five-year storyline instead. He made plenty of allusions to how WWE is using Baron Corbin and his “go away heat” while saying that the Librarians can play double duty for shows and be special guests referees.

>Nick Jackson went as far as to say that they should give them a “Baron Corbin like push” even though they bleeped out the word “Corbin.” In fact, the “F’n Librarians” are going to be in the main event once AEW’s television show rolls around.

>Former Impact Wrestling Champion Johnny "Impact" Hennigan finished his current run with Impact Wrestling at last night's Slammiversary PPV, losing to X-Division Champio Rich Swann.

>Hennigan's Impact Wrestling contract expired several weeks ago, but the two sides agreed that he would work through the PPV in order to close out his storyline with Swann. Impact sources confirmed that Hennigan is no longer under contract to the promotion, but noted the two sides are still in talks about continuing their relationship. That said, Hennigan is now free to negotiate and sign with any promotion.

>Hennigan, 39 years old, has been with Impact since 2017 and had really found himself in his current "Mayor of Slamtown" persona. Hennigan had a long run with WWE after winning the third season of their Tough Enough reality series, performing for the promotion through 2011 as John Morrison. Hennigan was also one of the top stars in the El Rey Network's Lucha Underground promotion, performing as Johnny Mundo. Over the course of his Impact run, Impact held the promotion's top title and has been one of the cornerstones of the company. He's also cultivated quite an acting resume in both independent films and TV series over the last several years. He has a new short horror film The Iron Sheik Massacre set for release this Fall.

>Hennigan's wife, Taya Valkyrie, is the current Impact Knockouts Champion. Her deal with the company is believed to run through the end of 2019.

What makes it even more infuriating is that none of the people in that skit (Bucks, Leva, and that other dick who plays the other librarian) even spent a cup of coffee in the WWE, right? It's just a lame-ass little nod to New Generation WWF's worker-gimmick initiative and current WWE's "fuck you fans" booking, but the only people who get that are the people who watch BTE - and the ones who watch BTE thinks it's fucking shit, and the people who don't think it's fucking pointless; anyone who gets the joke isn't fucking laughing.

it is, not only for TJPW. not only for all the companies that are partnered with AEW, but for all smaller companies in the US and on a smaller degree even in general
AEW is doing exactly what Vince did for the territories back in the day but scaled to the indie scene
sure a lot of very talented wrestlers (and some that arent) involved will get lots of exposure, but does it matter when the whole scene will get hurt in the process?

Takagi definitely wants his brand to get exposure. As long as Shoko doesn't leave I'm fine with her doing the occasional match for them. She can some times be a little botchy going maybe too fast at times but when she's on she can get a good match out of damn near anyone (hell, she did it with Pinano of all people).

Guess it depends on who they put her with for this show. I'd hate to see her thrown against some shit like Britt Baker but against Shida or something should be fine. Only thing is that seeing as she's TJPW's top champ I can't imagine she'll be eating a pin in her match. If it's a singles she either has to get the win or a draw.

I don't know. Her leaving would be a huge blow for TJPW but I like her getting the opportunity and exposure.

>As AEW presents their third show this weekend, Fight for the Fallen, good Ol' J.R. spoke with Busted Open Radio about the company and Jon Moxley joining the roster. Two-events in and AEW has certainly generated headlines. While many of the reviews of the events have been complimentary, there was some criticism of the Fyter Fest pre-show. Ross is a part of that crowd.
"Honestly, I wasn't crazy about it, I do not think it sold enough of what we were doing on the main show," Ross said. "I didn't think it was what we needed to be doing. Now, I like comedies, when I'm drinking those are my go-to. I think we have to be selling a good sampling of what we do in the main show. If you have a pregame show for a pay-per-view, those matches shouldn't just be filler, they should be something."

>Ross is adjusting to many new aspects within his role with AEW. One of those adjustments is working in a three-man booth. Ross is adamantly not a fan of those but feels with work, the AEW announce team could be quite good.
"We have to continue to work hard to get better, we are not nearly as good as we need to be," Ross mused. "But, that's not a surprise, we are brand new. We did a show in Vegas with no net. We are new, we are green in that regard. Excalibur is an excellent talent, I like his voice, he has great knowledge and he has passion in his heart. Alex Marvez, I would love to see him in an insider role. I work with two guys that are a lot smarter than me. We got to have reps and we have got to get better. We have got to clarify what the roles are in that three-man unit. I have every confidence in the world that when we go on television in October, we will be prepared to do a good job for the fans."

>Last weekend, NJPW hosted the first night of the G1 Climax in Dallas. Even though his block was not competing in tournament matches, some fans were surprised that he wasn't on the card, especially since Moxley is the U.S. Champion. There were reports that AEW had blocked him from competing on the show, however Moxley claims that he had a prior engagement.
"I wasn't booked on that to begin with," Moxley stated. "That is nothing. I was previously engaged when this happened. So, I will start on July 13th."

Not good when your staff is already burying their own product. AEW's having an identity crisis, they need to figure out what their actual goals are and how they plan on reaching them while actually growing an audience instead of hoping the hangers-on will be patient with them.

One thing for certain is if the preshow is going to be the lower-midcard containment zone, shitters like Joey Jannetty and Darby Anus need to be relegated there ASAP.

holy shit I completely forgot Darby ALSO killed himself in the sub main event and ended up on the pre show.

not sure whats going on with MJF and the "he's a heel to everyone except Cody"
When they did it with Sting & Luger in 95, Sting was at least skeptical. Cody just looks like a putz ... or doesn't care?... that MJF is shitty to other people, including Bret Hart. So does that mean Cody is a heel?

Why not just have MJF feud with Page over the summer to elevate Page on the way to ALL OUT. Wouldn't that do more for him than a cold match with Kip "nothing happening" Sabian?

Also why is Jimmy Havoc a babyface?

The first one this year was fine, but this really activates my almonds:
>first match is more about Iwatani getting a shock win over Klein

>second and third matches are more about Klein trying to overcome Iwatani on her own
>also, you can't just do the same match as the first one

hmmm

Also, I guarantee that Rossy doesn't give a shit. Stardom got some publicity among american fans and no one got injured on their side. They didn't mind putting over Klein in Japan, either.

I normally want wrestlers to get the most money they can, which is usually the WWE, but this is the one time where I want Tessa to go where they're actually going to make her star, and that's not going to be the WWE.

She really could bring a whole new audience to wrestling, but that won't happen if she's stuck in 25 minute multi women snoozefests on smackdown or beating Billie Kay in 11 seconds via countout.

Feel like this quote from Nick Aldis' interview is pretty revealing about AEW >>6269741
>I’ll tell you the truth: I was made an offer by AEW. I counter-offered with, “I’d like to be able to do both.” I’d like to work with them because obviously I have great admiration for Cody and the Bucks for what they’ve been able to do. But I wasn’t prepared to walk away from the two years of work I’ve done with the NWA. And that was that. I left it open with, “If you can find a way to keep doing this and do your show, I’ll do your show.”

>They essentially wanted to offer me a contract and have me walk away from what I’m doing here and I said that doesn’t make any sense to me. Really, there’s no reason to. It’s just a hangover from the way things have always been done. Obviously, we hear this “Change the World” phrase a lot, but that was my pitch to them. “If you really want to change the world, why can’t we do that?”

I mean they are working with DDT/TJPW and AAA at the moment.
I think their idea is to establish their roster first before allowing a lot more talent from other promotions in, but you also have to remember each one of those promotions has different storylines going on.
The same wrestler could be an entirely different character in MLW instead of Impact.

>The statement reads, "We have now concluded our internal investigation into the events that occurred in Portland on June 2nd and have taken appropriate actions with all parties involved. Our Code of Honor, which calls for sportsmanship, respect and honor in - and outside of the ring is a core value of this company and one we will continue to strive to uphold. To all of our loyal and dedicated fans, we apologize for the incident that transpired and we encourage all of our fans to continue attending our events. Furthermore, we promise to continue delivering the best wrestling and the best live experience on the planet. In adherence to Ring of Honor policy, we will not comment further on these matters."

>The company issued the response only when PWInsider's Mike Johnson reached out to them for an update.

She's third generation, which moves Tessa out of the Eddie Guerrero category and into the Chavo Guerrero Jr. category.

Judging by the houses they're drawing lately, that ain't happening.

Randy Orton and The Rock are both 3rd generation too. Tessa already has more charisma than both put together
