The reality is that the WWE is Vince's playground......and he's basically Donald Trump.  Racism is ingrained in his DNA

The sort of cool thing is, you don't have to put up with WWE's crap if you don't want to.  My WWE fandom over the last couple decades has been in spite of the promotion almost, where I'm just rooting for the talent in the company to rise above and ride the wave of crap and get themselves over by osmosis.  But it's a f'n mt to climb, with stupid obstacles put in your path

But tbh, ACH never gave me the vibe that he was going to be a breakout superstar that could get mega over.  Which is why I thought him winning the "breakout" tourny was odd.  I mean, there's a bunch of dudes in NXT I'd slot above him as far as singles pushes go...Shane Strickland and KUSHIDA for example, but whatever.

At the end of the day, until Vince and his quasi-racist idiot son in law are out of the picture.....nothing will change

The way ACH is going scorched earth over this... It doesn't seem like the best way to go about things unless he's exhausted all avenues internally. There has to be something more that hasn't been reported. But I'm certain he has a point. And I don't want to say his methodology is wrong. He's a far bigger name he was 72 hours ago, even if he burned his bridges with his current employer.

And I'll say this much. Any wrestler who isn't a POC should probably refrain from throwing in their two cents.

From the sound of it, ACH has been exhausting all avenues internally and that's why he's going scorched earth over this. I'm assuming him hemming and hawing over this has been why he's been off for over a month.

Also I want to point out for any "INDY WRESTLING IS MORE PURE AND WOKE THAN WWE" types that GCW, the promotion that is putting on "For The Culture", the all POC WrestleMania Week show, also promotes Shlak. Shlak, at best is an idiot who refuses to disavow that he was (is?) friends with a bunch of Neo Nazis and at worst, is an actual Neo Nazi.

Maybe For The Culture will end with everyone on the show beating up Shlak though.

this is the same company that didn't really give a shit about the very disturbing things that lars believed and probably still believes, so


I can't believe a guy can be that big, and jump around like he does what a great athlete!

Booker's comments about how he never took to social media to complain about the racism that was levied against him ring totally hollow, in light of the fact that his in-ring career was essentially over by the time social media became a thing. It's not like we have a counterfactual for whether or not he would have taken to social media, had social media existed in 2003, and we're kind of forced to take his word for it.

That "Do it in my face because I will show you what an Uncle Tom really looks like" comment though, is... something.

Not anything race related (I don't think) but Booker has absolutely been vocal in interviews about his mistreatment dating back to his days in WCW prior to becoming world champ. This includes his sudden exit in 2007 after bitching that he didn't want to be fed to a returning HHH while his KOTR gimmick was still hot.

Man, I'd actually forgotten about that.  I remember it being such BS at the time that King Booker was red hot act and then they just turned him into a geek for HHH to kill.  Again.

I don't remember who was writing/booking SD at the time, but I remember a major drop in quality when they shifted HHH to that brand.  He actually had a decent match with Kozlov tho if memory serves, so it wasn't a total loss :P

Part of me thinks that Booker T would've been a flamethrower just like ACH if social media had been around when he was on the roster but he stayed on the roster for four years after the storyline where Triple H did everything short of outright calling him the N Word (then going over) so idk.

ACH is doing an indy show in Texas tomorrow.

Curious to see what his and WWE's official endgame is here. Assuming a nasty lawsuit. Has WWE already released him? I don't recall hearing anything about it.

The thing is that he's been having the same kind of meltdown that Mauro had, but you can see the variation in reactions people have had to him and Mauro. And it isn't that hard to figure out why people subconsciously have those reactions towards him and not Mauro.

Yeah. Very true. The worst people on Wrestling Twitter are the ones that hate ACH.

Like everyone comparing him to Antonio Brown. A mentally ill guy upset over racial mistreatment is totally similar to an abusive accused rapist. Sure.  ::)

My first reaction to why he is treated differently is he is openly shutting on fans on Twitter and Mauro hasn’t said a word (that I know of). Unless you are talking about how they reacted before he went off the rails there. . .

I'm assuming 909 was referring to Mauro's previous Twitter meltdowns. His friends luckily were able to steer him away from social media during that last episode.

I bet his mentions looked pretty terrible prior to that.

Mauro has been very very open about the fact that he has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Hell, there was a whole documentary about his whole struggle dealing with it. Of course people are going to be more understanding towards that person versus someone who’s condition is more unknown and has been much more combative to the public in response to criticism about his actions. Simply boiling it down to “one has been treated better because one is white and one is black” is disingenuous and ignoring a lot of other factors.

Also I feel like we should clarify that mental illness (or being developmentally disabled like Super Humman) is not an excuse for being a racist.

(and afaik Mauro has never said anything racist. And as of right now, we only have anecdotal evidence Super Humman was racist. Whoop whoop?)

I mean, better than saying the n word but it's literally just a weasel word for it.


 As far as the latest posts about ACH/Mauro, ACH and Mauro aren't dead on comparisons obviously but there has clearly been a lot of racism in the way ACH has been treated. You just have to look at his twitter and the way people (including this thread!) have compared him to Antonio Brown. I agree that Mauro being more open about his problems makes a difference and that ACH's problems don't excuse his own comments.

This whole ACH episode is just sad.

Whatever state of his mental health is I hope he just takes a deep breath and takes a step back for a moment (at least from social media). Cause he had opportunity to start some important conversations but it seems like it's been disrupted (for time being, at least) by him overfeeding the trolls.

My worst fear is that he's blackballing himself from the industry. Hey. If he genuinely never wants to work again. TOTALLY understood but this weekend, it just seems like he's saying a lot of stuff without thinking it through.
