>Cornette: Dana Brooke... Her entire face looks like it was remodeled after someone set fire to it and put it out with an axe. What the fuck has happened? Did she do that on purpose or was she in a horrible accident? What the fuck.

Dave or Bryan should do the world a favour and offer Cornette out in a shoot fight and whoop his ass. The only way Jim will cool his jets and educate himself is through getting humbled.

I actually enjoy Jim's show, he's usually funny and tells a good story, but insulting the appearance of a woman who probably has some serious image issues judging by the amount of work she's had done, is pretty damn cunty. It's not like his wife is any prize pig and he's opened himself up to people attacking her appearance.

He may have lost a job or two but he's never bent the knee with an apology or even worse committed career seppuku and canceled himself. Instead he still does his thing and the wrestling geek world still takes notice and people still entertain the idea of things like 'what if Jim Cornette managed the Revival in AEW' . He's still easily found and suggested right there on Youtube which is where a lot of people still get their wrestling information.

Cornette would pussy out hard like he did when confronted by Santino Marella.
The more I think about that, the more I realize that Corny is a joke when people actually have a good response to him.

>for years, Corny proudly told the story about how he smacked Santino Marella in the face over screwing up the Boogeyman's OVW debut segment by no-selling him
>and constantly shit talked Santino over the years
>Santino finally gets the chance to stand up for himself at some convention where both he and Cornette were going to sell merch, iirc
>tells corny to either slap him or shake his hand
>Corny's head turns cartoonishly red as he throws a hissy fit at Santino
>doesn't even try a cheeky slap
>later, corny claims that Santino did this to try to sue him

>nevermind the fact that if Santino did somehow take Cornette to court, he'd have to admit to instigating the incident

I was gonna say it sucks no one every legitimately pushed Sabin, but I totally forgot he Option C'd for the TNA World Championship, won, and lost it in less than a month.

I'm not saying he was gonna be a mega star, but it's weird to see peers of his like Christopher Daniels, Frankie Kazarian, etc with full time gigs and Sabin is flailing like this.

As the champ, yeah, but that's nothing to totally discredit him completely for given the context looking back on it and how bad the product was at the time (Hogan and Bischoff era.)
It's more accurate to say that TNA was pretty forgettable (the memorable stuff was mainly memorable for being bad) at that point. Also, Sabin held it for less than a month. It was just a feel good moment meant to get more heat on Bully Ray when he beat him for it back.

You know, I think more and more that Vince Mcmahon's ridiculous ideas of what makes a "good guy" and what is "badass" has rubbed off on his remaining braindead audience. The same way you get WWE marks parroting what somebody HAS to look like in order to be successful in wrestling

>Sabin is flailing like this.
He works for Impact as a match producer.
After he left Impact, he had a decent run in ROH, re-uniting the Machine Guns and forming "Search and Destory" with Jay White and Gresham.

He seemed poised to go back to NJPW too; he had worked the 2018 BOSJ and the Jr Tag league, and he, Shelley and Kushida formed a rotating trio called "Time Machine"...

...and then he tore his ACL. For a 3rd time. He missed all of 2019 recovering and in that time he left ROH.

Impact was building to an in-ring return this year. He was going to be the guest referee in the King of the Mountain Match at No Place Like Home and presumably get involved in the Moose feud.
And Alex shelley revealed on Twitter that the Machine Guns were supposed to reunite at the event.

Coronavirus fucked everything up; Shelley is a full time physical therapist and said he can't wrestle as he works with at-risk patients.

Injuries really fucked up Shelley and Sabin a lot. Their style led to shot knees for Sabin and neck/concussion issues for Shelley. Whenever they do go back to Impact or ROH, they're revered as the innovators that they are.
You'd only think he was flailing if you haven't watched other stuff in the past few years.

Shelley had a falling out with Dixie. He had the support of guys like Nash but he got fed up with the way the X Division talent got treated, especially with Hogan & Bischoff's arrival.

He was going to go to WWE, along with Matt Morgan and Amazing Red...
but then Johnny Ace fucked up in a situation where Brian Wittenstein, a former TNA staff worker went to work for WWE and started revealing confidential contract information:
https://bleacherreport.com/articles/1195629-breaking-news-tna-files-lawsuit-against-wwe-over-insider-information-leaks

Johnny Ace fucked up because while he did fire Wittenstein, he waited to disclose this information back to TNA and in that time, Ric Flair quit TNA and went back to WWE.

TNA sued WWE for contract tampering and it cost Ace his job as VP of Talent Relations. That's when HHH took over.
And after that, there was a "freeze" on hiring TNA talent, so Shelley, Red and Morgan all lost their gigs. And HHH started the public "TNA doesn't have anyone we want" narrative.

Fun fact: Brian Wittenstein, the guy that started all this drama - He's now Cody Rhodes' agent

All this shit is just one big Catch 22. You're either a doofus who's focus is on being a living meme or a try-hard who's way too emotionally invested in a form of entertainment that very few people take seriously. Either way both parties are throwing their bodies to the ground and slowly destroying their physical well-being.

Yeah, but that was due to the looming threat of cancellation alongside general event oversaturation. And even then Elgin is still dumb as shit because Allie Kat isn't a "meme comedy wrestler", she's already proved herself as legitimate twice now with Nick Gage and Mance Warner.

At the end of the day Michael Elgin is salty because he cannot and never will draw. He has zero charisma or star power and operates under the delusion that technical skill alone will make you a huge draw.

>>6393622
If you try to explain it as a work in public to other wrestlers then you either have no fucking clue how to work or you're trying to walk back being a shoot retard. And given Elgin's history, there's a very good chance it was the latter.

> Allie Kat isn't a "meme comedy wrestler", she's already proved herself as legitimate twice now with Nick Gage and Mance Warner.
eh... my jury is still out on Allie. I haven't seen enough of her stuff yet. Her GCW matches kind of felt like carry jobs.

And i know this is superficial but... she kind of has a shit look. I'm not trying to bodyshame but pro wrestling is a cosmetic business. she just doesn't look athletic. At all. She looks like flabby alt girl with serious baggage and she kind of carries herself like one. And she's willing to be the girl that bleeds for GCw because Maria Manic is gone. She's working a very very specific niche within a niche that has a very low ceiling. So to be personally butthurt about Elgin calling wrestlers soft is a little eye rolling to me.

I did some googling after I posted and couldn't really find anything. All I found was some interview where the writer was like "So you're trying out for MLB?" and he just says "Yeah, I'm hoping to try out next year." He gets more into how he has to switch up his workout to focus on stamina and cardio instead of bodybuilding. I don't think he ever even got the tryout.

He did briefly leave ROH at one point in 2014, but I found a lot of shit saying it was a work, and he just had visa issues for a few months.

No Legs and Morton actually had real matches though. Morton's Destroyer wasn't a "meme" it was an impressive move for a legit veteran wrestler (in a genuinely good match). Ditto for No Legs. Yeah the Invisible Man was a meme, but like I said, Janela spaced the meme stuff out and his headlining things were serious matches.

IMO the difference between "meme wrestling" and something like No Legs vs Tony Deppen is that No Legs actually had a good match that wasn't played for laughs. He actually worked his ass off to have a competitive match once the bell rang. Pro wrestling comes from the circus, I'm fine with carnie freakshow variety... but at the end of the day, I still want a fight.

That's why I don't think Orange Cassidy is just a meme wrestler because he's had lots of good matches where he busts his ass.
But Joey Ryan is because he's lazy and just wants to get his spots in and he doesn't take it seriously.

And that's the thing about Danhausen... name a good Danhausen match. He's got the "hausen" naming thing and the "no swearing" and the jar of teeth and "Tequila"... but name a good match he's had. It's just a bunch of gimmicks meant to get a laugh. He doesn't play it like he's trying to win a fight.

Elgin is a dumb meathead and has always been a dumb meathead and is incapable of writing a cogent thought but somewhere in his posting, he was getting at this point. But it's lost in the fact that twitter doesn't like him and he's referring to indie wrestlers that can spend more time building a social media brand than putting on muscle.

I feel like this is because of circular logic though. Talents who look, act and carry themselves like pro wrestlers don't last long on the indies. The ones who are still playing to the indies are the ones that have been passed over by WWE/NJPW for whatever reason.
No offense to a guy like Warhorse, but I just don't see his act translating to TV as it currently stands. He's going to have to put on a lot of seasoning for his in-ring work... and put on some muscle. Otherwise, he'll come off like a little cosplaying as Ultimate Warrior that the casuals think they're supposed to laugh at.

And I'm a little skeptical of the "social media brands draw more" claim.
Is there an example of a recent exceptionally high drawing indie that was *not* anchored to Wrestlemania weekend or some other event like NEW's "Wrestling Under the Stars" where they bring in WWE talents?

What's the biggest crowd that the Allie Kat/Danhausen/Erick Stevens group have drawn?

He's a heavy metal rocker wrestler. A mix of Ultimate Warrior, 80s Sting and lots of Iron Maiden references.
He has the enthusiasm and energy and "promo-speak" down... but there is a vital component of the tribute act that he's missing -- the roided out balls to the wall manic energy.

I'm not saying Warhorse needs to do coke or roids but Sting and Warrior only got to that memorably insane level because they were gym freaksthat did roids and coke and never broke character and disappeared into their gimmicks.

Warhorse feels like a guy who is cosplaying a wrestler for a skit.
I still like him and think he's got lots of potential but the blunt truth is any talent scout from a major league TV company, including Jim Ross in AEW, is going to tell him the same things that Elgin was tweeting about... but maybe in a nicer, not meathead way.

Well, that explains everything

But yeah, it seems like a lot of wrestlers have been going away from having a gimmick or working a way that fits their actual look. It just creates a massive disconnect that makes everything hard to buy, and not just for someone seeing them for the first time.

For example, I just mentally switch off when I see guys like fucking Johnny Gargano and the Young Bucks kicking out of every move that's ever been invented, but I could buy them just fine using skill/agility to reverse/avoid a bunch of shit. Just give me something that fits what I'm looking at.

So AJ Styles just posted a John Cena Promo interview on his FB;
https://www.facebook.com/1154118874660321/posts/4172471086158403/?vh=e

At one point he says John Cena is a mastermind in a WWE Ring like his psychology and ringwork and reactions and everything he can do on the spot. He and Cena, he then goes onto say, are complete opposites. But, put those opposites together; magic.

Health, please set reasonable goals for yourself: ROH, MLW or/and NWA. Maybe PWG if all of a sudden you can work a much faster pace than you've ever shown in WWE (PWG gave Curt Hawkins a shot but I think the general feeling was that didn't work out so we'll see if PWG ever offers ex-WWE folks a spot again). You'd be lucky to get into AEW and NJPW is never happening.

GCW might take him if he could reach down into himself and pull out a "Sleaze Mode" Slater.

There are a million and one promos, matches, etc., where Cena's natural charisma and talent shines through and we get a glimpse of what truly could have been a truly beloved wrestling icon. Cena was horribly mismanaged by bad booking and other factors (Michael Cole's announcing, general chemistry issues, etc.) that constantly exposed his limited athletic ability and made him "divisive" instead of a legitimately beloved icon.

Slater tweeting NJPW to book him is sort of like Kevin James tweeting Christoper Nolan to put him in his next film

Is Kevin James a successful actor? Yes, relatively
Do people like Kevin James? Many do
Is Kevin James suited to being in a serious Christoper Nolan film? No
Why? Because Kevin James has been comedy shows and films the last 15 years

Slater hasn't worked a properly serious match since like what, the Corre? It been an actual decade since he's done any "heavy lifting" in the ring. He's suddenly going to jump from that to being in a NJPW ring? Pretty unlikely

It's not about knocking Slater, it's just being realistic.

As someone else said, Impact would be be good fit for him. If it wants to keep doing goofy stuff, he can do it there, with Rhino even, but if he wants to transcition into being more a serious wrestler he could also do that in Impact.

If Slater wants to work NJPW he needs to walk the walk first not talk to talk, because I think for most people, it's a "we'll believe it when we see it" when it comes to Slater suddenly working even a mildly hard hitting style after 10 years of doing light comedy matches.

All three of those guys are colossal dorks gatekeeping something that the wider world will never take seriously. Maybe in their brains they're wrestling for Inoki era New Japan or doing rounds in the UWFi but none of them give an tough guy aura especially when you consider 'big' Mike is 5'7 or something and Brian Pillman Jr feels the need to give Ted talks about Porn and Video Games on his wrestling twitter page. People that gatekeep something as ridiculous as pro wrestling (something that is inherently dishonest and generally distasteful in the general public's eyes) are so pathetic.

I meant to show up in AEW a week after being on WWE TV would be interesting. I don't think he should sign a long term contract in AEW unless they plan on pushing him and not sticking him with go nowhere shitters like Janela or Havoc.

I think in the next month, we're gonna be seeing some other companies in Japan and America (probably England also) that have crowdless or limited events. Since Gulak has no non-compete, I'd like to see him working somewhere else. Provided they take necessary precautions.

>I open up the pizza at the table that Gabe who runs Evolve has set up for me. People are coming over to take pictures, autographs, and the pizza is free, no big deal. It was a way, Johnny Gargano's last night, it was a celebratory thing. There is a wrestler by the name of Drew Gulak, and I'm going to go ahead and tell you I think he sucks. He does a grizzled old vet routine, he hasn't done anything or made any money anywhere, and he shouldn't be doing that routine. He looked at me from his table, and frustrated and jealous, because there were people in line at my table; Hell they might have been in line just for the pizza, says to me "So that's what you need to get over" and he walks away in a total huff and temper tantrum. Since then that guy, is on my list. 100%. I will reguarly text Ethan Page just to tell him how much I think Drew Gulak sucks.

If Cody is absolutely right about one thing, it is that Gulak has drawn zero dimes.
No offense to the guy, but there's a whole lot of people who had no idea who he was, and he wasn't relevant to any realistic degree until they saw until the Bryan and Gulak feud/partnership.
He was of course having great matches before then, both before WWE and in WWE. It's just that the "in WWE" matches were associated with the career purgatory and "if a great match happens on a show no one really watches much less knows still exists, did it even happen?" that is 205 Live.

Drew Gulak's best decision at this moment, since AEW is likely off the table given him and Cody's old beef, is either renegotiating with WWE and riding this wave of relevance that he finally got by being paired with Daniel Bryan.

Or just waiting it out and wrestling for various indies and New Japan once they start back up since he could really add something to the Junior Heavyweight division there and feud with Zack Sabre Jr.
Or even join Suzuki-Gun and team with him.

The original intent of posting word of their beef was to clearly done to try to rally behind making people hate Cody... until the story was actually posted and it has an adverse effect once you realize Gulak was taking himself way too seriously and looked worse than Cody did since Cody and crew were celebrating Johnny Gargano's farewell with pizza and Gulak made a leap in logic to try and make himself look above celebrating a guy's departure with food.
The guy big leagued a farewell celebration done with food. Think about that. lol

Has Gulak every shared his side of the story? That's pretty important if you want to play that card. If Gulak hasn't, he may also be too damned embarassed to address a story in which he made himself look like an idiot in more ways than one.

Also, by reading the story, it doesn't come across like Cody fishing tale'd the story either. He recalls a specific story of what happens and provides context as to how one guy misinterpreted the situation and used it as an opportunity to talk down to him, and how that guy is on his shitlist forever because of it.

For all we know, that may not even be the first situation like that.
Gulak might've done similar things in WWE where he took himself too seriously. Which could've also included talking down to people, and that's partly why his run there turned out the way that it did.
Adding up the Cody story in Evolve with how Gulak's character is and how he seems to carry himself, WWE may have taken it upon themselves to humble him (he was a comedy act at one point and a straight up jobber at another) and did not give him much to work with since he could have rubbed people the wrong way there too.

Not really, he's made more money from the WWE than he possiby could've nearly anywhere else. He was given countless chances to succeed because of how big he is, and his whole extended family is set for life. He has zero reason to feel anything but love for the WWE, because he kept his head down and kept getting chances even though he underperformed for the majority of his career. I don't begrudge him being a drone - you just have to take that in consideration every time he says anything about wrestling.

Yeah the defamation laws in the United States have a very high burden of proof. It's funny how it's the complete opposite here in comparison to other countries like the UK for example:

>Under American law, if an alleged defamatory statement is made about a public figure (someone running for president or a celebrity, for example), it is not sufficient to simply demonstrate that the statement is untrue. Since the focus is a person of public interest, actual malice must be shown. This means that the person who claims he or she was defamed has to show — by clear and convincing evidence, not just a preponderance of the evidence — that the publisher of the statement either knew it was false or made or disseminated it with reckless disregard for the truth.

>British courts, on the other hand, apply a much less stringent criteria for damages in a defamation case. There, the burden of proof is on the publisher, the one being sued, to prove the truth of the disputed statement. The party who claims he or she was defamed simply has to demonstrate the statements harm his or her reputation, without having to show any damage actually incurred. Thus, in Great Britain, defamatory statements are presumed to be false, and the party who is being sued is the one who has to prove otherwise. This is, indeed, quite different from our law here on defamation of a public figure.

So basically if this were in another country, Mark Henry would have a way easier time winning this than he would in the US.

Not so much that as much as it is because the 1st Amendment was designed specifically to protect freedom of the press, which ironically the Supreme Court has never used to rule on defamation cases. So basically it's on a state-by-state basis:

>Defamation law in the United States is much less plaintiff-friendly than its counterparts in European and the Commonwealth countries, due to the enforcement of the First Amendment. One very important distinction today is that European and Commonwealth jurisdictions adhere to a theory that every publication of a defamation gives rise to a separate claim, so that a defamation on the Internet could be sued on in any country in which it was read, while American law only allows one claim for the primary publication.

>In the United States, a comprehensive discussion of what is and is not libel or slander is difficult, because the definition differs between different states. Some states codify what constitutes slander and libel together into the same set of laws. Some states have criminal libel laws on the books, though these are old laws which are very infrequently prosecuted. Washington State has held its criminal libel statute unconstitutional applying the state and federal constitutions to the question.

I'm not sure what state Mark would be suing Lio in, I would think either in Texas or Maryland since that's where they both live but both states do have this:

>All states except Arizona, Missouri, and Tennessee recognize that some categories of false statements are so innately harmful that they are considered to be defamatory per se. In the common law tradition, damages for such false statements are presumed and do not have to be proven.

I would also assume that if it was defamation per se, Mark could claim that Lio's defamation was under the category of an "allegation or imputation injurious to another in their trade, business, or profession". However I don't think that would even fly in court.

>>6394757
Pretty much. Unless he somehow wins like Jesse Ventura did in his defamation suit against Chris Kyle but Mark would have to prove that Lio acted with malice to defame him - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jesse_Ventura#Chris_Kyle_defamation_suit

>Let's explain ... earlier this week, Rush -- who was recently released by WWE -- fired off a barrage of Tweets attacking the Hall of Famer.
>Rush accused Henry of torpedoing black wrestlers' careers, writing ... "This is why African American talent on the biggest platform will continue to not have equal opportunity because people like you constantly tear your own people down. A damn shame honestly.”
>TMZ Sports talked to an extremely upset Mark Henry ... who says Rush's comments are straight-up nonsense.
>"If you go down to the performance center at NXT, probably 25 I think, people of color in the facility, probably about 80 plus percent of them I helped get them there. I mean, it's completely opposite."
>So, if it ain't true, why'd Rush write what he did?
>Mark tells us Lio's clout chasing ... using his name and fame to promote his music career.
>"He knew that I get a lot of attention. I have a lot of followers and he released the album, or song, or something, and he wanted to use that to get some attention. Get some buzz," Henry says.
>Mark's adamant if Rush would've just asked for help, he would've plugged his music -- no problem -- but what he did instead was wayyy out of bounds.
>"If he would've called me, I would've done it anyway. We would've just worked it. I would of really talked it up, we would of made world news, but now he said something slanderous."
>"And, you can't question my blackness. Like nobody can question my blackness, pull my black card. No, not allowed. Nobody."
>Mark's so mad ... he tells us he's seriously considering filing a lawsuit.
>"My lawyer went to Harvard. I don't know what kinda lawyers he's dealing with, but I got those Ivy League people around me, and they're pissed!"
>But, there is one thing Lio Rush can do before he finds his ass in a courtroom ... say sorry, and really mean it.
>"He needs to apologize."
so I guess the "barrage" of tweets and that one in particular, which isn't any specific accusation so yeah this is just dumb tmz shit

Gaspard and his son were among a group of swimmers caught in a strong rip current around 4 PM -- with lifeguards racing into the water to pull everyone out. Gaspard's son was rescued -- but the 39-year-old pro wrestler has not been located.

Fuck. That's just...I mean...fuuuuuuuuuuuuck.

there's NO paperwork on the indies regarding any of that stuff. its something indie wrestlers should start thinking about but the name of the game has been "getting exposure". Highspots, Smart Mark, DEEJ, Quack, IWTV, FITE TV, GCW, whoever are still basically running DIY operations. There's no Screen Actors Guild to negotiate the DVD royalty rates for pro wrestlers.

>Or how you told us all you wouldn’t book us if you wouldn’t f**k us.
that however is a very valid issue and DEEJ should get called out if he's guilty.

And there shouldn't be - SAG would cause MAJOR issues if it got into pro wrestling, because SAG controls it's union members with an iron fist of "do what we say or say goodbye to your career". That's not to say indie groups shouldn't be thinking of having everyone sign usage agreements (which they should, even if it's a basic 'video release form')... but literally the vast majority of bookings are done through Facebook and email, just a "hey, you available on so-and-so date?" with pay done through PayPal or cash, with nothing in writing.

Yeah, one of the problems with a wrestling union is that it could unintentionally fuck over independent worker agency by forcing them to stick to union-approved promotions or matches with union-approved wrestlers in the same way SAG actors can only work on SAG-approved movies. It could kill a lot of people's careers.

Anyway all of that being said this is peak LOLCZW because I'm not really sure what Deej *thought* would happen. Yes, I'm sure people have resold old wrestling footage in an apartment wrestling context, but I'm guessing that if they did, they made it a point to distance it from the original promotion. Deej didn't even try to cover his ass on this and now he looks like a giant tool.

As someone who deals with SAG-AFTRA when doing short films, there is no option to "negotiate" freelance work. It's laid out in "Rule One" of their code, and is even written on the back of any union member's union card:

"No member shall render any services or make an agreement to perform services for any employer who has not executed a basic minimum agreement with the union, which is in full force and effect, in any jurisdiction in which there is a SAG-AFTRA national collective bargaining agreement in place. This provision applies worldwide."

It's either union or nothing, and you can be fined or even kicked out of the union for working non-union stuff.

Jim acts like he made a perfectly reasonable "I'm just making anti-plastic surgery" comment instead of the fact he insulted Dana and she naturally felt hurt by it and insulted back. The whole "back in the day wrestlers cause riots, now they get upset on twitter" thing is so dumb. Jim is not a fan yelling at a heel during a show, he's someone supposedly in the business talking about something else in the business. If in SMW there was some guy called Bill Cornette and he went around calling New Jack a retard, and then New Jack punched that guy in the eye, I'm sure Jim would be on New Jack's side, not "Bill's". So the era has fuck all to do with it.

Like if the shoe was on the other foot and people were insulting his wife's appearance I'm pretty sure he'd bug out over that.

The whole thing is pretty childish and it feels like Cornette basically clickbaiting/trolling for attention to keep his name in the news to keep the heat on his podcast.

Where is the charity part? Unless there's something somewhere else, there is no mention of charity anywhere, including the ProWrestlingTees email that announced this whole thing, and did indeed say "ladies, this one is for you", so yes, it seems like they think only (or mostly) women are the ones doing this. onlyfans.com/NylaRose might be more profitable

See the part i highlighted. On a second read, it doesn't look like its 100% charity, and more of some kind of Atlanta-based tech startup that has a philanthropic component (because that is the future of marketing and how brands R going 2 win)

So yeah... it's not a celeb meet & greet for charity. Its more of a "corporate philanthropy" which is pretty much hollow bullshit 90% of the time.

He was trained by Curt Hawkins. Early in his career, MJF was having trouble coming up with a name. Somehow, he came up with "Maxwell Jacob" and wanted to add a last name. Hawkins suggested looking through some list of jewish last names. When MJF suggested "Feinstein" (the same last name as the infamous Rob Feinstein), Hawkins laughed and told him to use it.

Bryan's tweet and it's responses is the perfect encapsulation of why I hate this tribalism bullshit between brands

https://twitter.com/bryanalvarez/status/1263345368256798721

>Smarky responses of about ratings cause they are butthurt Bryan posts them
>People celebrating that AEW wrestlers got injured/People posting smug HHH & Vince macros to celebrate Fenix/Britt/OC getting hurt
>Bigleaging for WWE as if AEW is some minor league farm team (I agree last night was sloppy and amateur but acting like it is every week is retarded don't @ me)
>AEW fans making it personal

Another stark reminder to never ever go near social media I guess

Seth Rollins speaking about Jim Cornette shit talking his wife and being sexist

>Seth: "It hurt my feelings on a personal level, because Jim Cornette is someone who is a legend in our industry, and he is someone that I have personally worked with in Ring of Honor. For him to come out and say some real negative things, some real misogynist things about women in general, and pregnancy in the industry. It caught me off guard and made me lose a lot of respect for somebody that a lot of people have kind of lost respect for, and I was still holding on to hope that somewhere along the line there was a personal connection between Jim and I (Because their ROH time), that he would think twice before making some egregious comments about women, about my wife, that were completely - I can't even forgive them. I don't want to repeat them.

>just from a grander scale, the mindset that has to go into that needs to be eradicated. All around. It's just so disgusting and the more I sat and thought about it and talked about it, I knew we had this appearance coming up and I just wanted to address it (I believe he is talking about this interview in this podcast) because I just want to make it very clear that this is something I am so proud of my fiance and what she is doing. The courage that it takes for her at this point in her career to make a decision. Look, she's 33, once you hit 35 you start running risks with these pregnancies, so she made an incredibly tough decision. She went on national television, she said things the way she wanted to, the fact of the matter is she is the most talented woman I have ever seen in my entire life, she's gonna be just fine being pregnant, making money, doing alright. So everything that Jim Cornette said is complete nonsense not just for her but for women all around the globe, it's been for the most part been extremely positive and everybody is happy for us."

Both Cornette and Russo are living in the past and refusing to grow up. Both of them were blessed by Vince McMahon and rejected by Vince McMahon when they were no longer profitable. Both are running a podcast ranting and raving about the modern day product. Both hate each other yet they have so much in common.

Yeah. It's part of the reason they never got along tbh, because they're just two sides of the same coin.

>>6396476
The difference between Jim in '86 & Jim in 2020 is that there is no payoff coming. There is no babyface that's gonna come along & put Jim in his place. The only people in the entire world that possibly could (The Young Bucks) refuse to give Cornette that kind of air-time in AEW, regardless of the fact that Jim's been begging for that angle for the last 10 years.

When there is no payoff for something that's just "heel work," it just makes you look more & more like a desperate old man clinging to the rants that became the stuff of memes in online wrestling groups 15 years ago, which is pretty fucking sad considering that Jim Cornette is capable of contributing so much more to pro wrestling. But, as history has proven, the man continues to be his own worst enemy.

you're telling the wrong person.

Don't tell me: @ Cornette, Jim Ross, Meltz and the Revival who all talk about how Corny managing the Revival is an easy lay-up.

Again: I don't need an explanation for why it's not going to happen. It's been stated a thousand times.

It's pretty clear what Cornette is and why he acts this way. There's nothing to re-litigate. If it's so annoying, then just ignore his stuff and ignore the posts people make about him on wooo.

No one's interested in explaining it to you. The point of the post is that Cornette is wasting his talent on playing the role of "sad old man," & there's only so long people can write it off as a work before it becomes clear that he's doing more harm to his brand than good, outside of his group of fanboys.

Russo has moved on though. The only reason why he still is in contact with the wrestling business is because it still brings him an income. His stream was on during one of the commercials during Raw in Taima, someone asked how he would book the show, and he essentially said he doesnt watch wrestling anymore. The only reason why he watches Raw is because its like a job to him.

To be honest, it's like asking a couple years ago if wrestlers getting their own Instagrams or Twitters make things worse.

You can't really ignore popular platforms to find your audience; if you do, someone else is going to build and innovate in a way that makes them money and gets them market share.

In the case of most wrestlers, they have something that people find valuable: behind the scenes knowledge and road stories. A podcast is really easy to set up and manage, and it doesn't help that people saw what happened with Netflix (exclusive, signed content) and do the same thing with podcast networks. This makes for a low maintenance product that can potentially convert new fans.

If you tell a wrestler that all they have to do is maybe buy a mic and hit a record button in Audacity once a week and they'll make some decent money for themselves, they'll definitely jump at the chance.

you said livestreaming his tears. That, he does not often do.

He doesn't grieve for that kind of attention and if he decided to this time then it goes to show it means a lot to him for people to hear what he had to say for Shad's sake. Realize your "just being weird" is more being opinionated. Forget your views or thoughts for a minute and be Batista for a few as you have some empathy and shit mane.

Or dont, either way, you shouldn't act that superficial for your own sake.

You're right but you're not correct. It's absolutely fucked that we try to get as many people working as possible to keep GDP up thus privatizing housekeeping meaning more people working and more GDP. The ultimate problem though is that this is a productive system in a society where productivity is valued above all. It's a positive feedback loop with no regard for the human life destroyed as a result and so just because it shouldn't be this way doesn't mean it isn't.

Dave keeps saying that WWE's logic is, we're still paying released talent for 90 days so we'll still use them for 90 days. The vague implication is that some of these people (possibly a lot of them) will be brought back, and this is a tactic to make WWE's projections look better.

In Kurt's case it might be weirder since he was a producer, meaning he was possibly furloughed rather than released, but he's appearing as a talent, so who the hell knows what any of this crap means.
