This is the wrong era to say everyone gets belts. He also pumps NJPW, which is a company I love that DOES REALLY give everyone a belt at some point in their time there.

Titles can definitely elevate a wrestler's status, like it did with the Miz. Or my man, The Tugster.


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

Dave's going to give this orgy **1/2

No, we're doing it in the Tokyo Dome.  So, ****1/4 minimum.

Dave had a busy weekend putting the Young Bucks over the Rock and Roll Express due to merch sales as everyone yelled at him since JCP's merch was near non-existent. Yet it was an ongoing battle for 24 hours +

Yeah...no, sorry. Nothing Janela does in the ring matches anything Foley did on an individual level, from either a quality of work standpoint or selling. He's one hell of a fucking promoter, though, and his presence outmatches his stature.

I don't hate Janela but Moxley and Callihan were always hailed as the second-comings of Foley by pretty much everybody (which I've always disputed as Mox always channeled a more "Loose Cannon" Brian Pillman-vibe with me). It's so weird to see Janela put into that equation by Dave.

Accurate.


I think most people plugged into the situation over there know that the Nazi Germany comparisons are very accurate even though people would like to ignore them. What we have is a case of a society where every citizen must believe in the same religion and not go against the system or they will be murdered. Before the war, Vince would definitely take money from Nazi Germany and leave the Jewish wrestlers at home. That is an undisputed fact because this is the same thing, like it or not. The fact is that Saudi Arabia is the only country in the world where women's soccer, and until recently women's sports in general, are literally banned. The only reason women are allowed to do any sport in that country is because the Olympics threatened to ban the country entirely. As soccer is the sport that the entire world plays and watches, and it is the most popular sport in the country, this is nothing short of a disgrace.

WWE is doing business with, as well as booking the company around that country because Vince wants more money. He would totally do the same thing in other countries if those countries existed and were not sanctioned. The only reason he didn't do business in South Africa is because the concept of taking the company international wasn't on his mind until they'd already been sanctioned. Trust me, he would have. They sent the boys over to Iraq where they could have been killed.

That there are people still buying PPVs, and that the WWE fans that do aren't the same ones buying Impact, ROH, or AEW PPVs, so those companies are reaching other fans.

Meltz is going high and mighty on the WWE for using the bloody mouth angle last night since Vince had the gall to chastise AEW for the bloody matches with Dustin and Moxley. 



He's also sprung wood for AEW possibly/probably selling out a 5000 seat arena for the first TV since TNA drew 100, RAW #1 had 1100 and Nitro was a free show.

Wait, isn’t AEW running the Wizards’ arena for that show in October? They are going to need to sell a lot more than 5,000 tix to fill that building up unless they tarp off the upper deck. (And from the looks of the seating chart, they aren’t)

He wasn't even the only one bringing that up, hell he wasn't even the first person to mention it, that I saw. But I guess if everyone's going to pick apart every little thing he says, might as well jump on that.

I think the better response to Vince going the "they're blood and guts" route is for fans to collectively say "yes, that's what we fucking want."

To be honest I thought the entire argument was one of the dumbest things I've ever seen on the internet. Guy bites his tongue and some blood comes out and Meltzer (AEW PR) instantly brings up the blood and guts argument.

It's quite tiresome.

It also wasn't some "little thing" he said, it was giant Meltzer special of getting super anal and arguing with all-comers. Dave is a twitter troll. He knew he'd get that reaction and it is what he wanted. It's why he spends more time responding to idiots than to real questions.

Regarding the stuff on the blackboard in the background on yesterday's Road To show, the Harrington dress code was about Chris Harrington, the Vice President of Business Strategy and his wearing a hat with his suit at the live events.  Chad Glenn is the company's Director of Finance.  They were just inside jokes.

Thanks, Dave.  The three people who cared appreciate the clarification.

Except he's been talking about him for a while now. He even mentioned that Vikingo would have been the third wrestler instead of Laredo Kid if he had his Visa in time for Fyter Fest. Vikingo has had some amazing matches this year.

But who is saying that Dave hadn't talked about him before? It's that the spot takes forever to setup and the ref is having to hold the rope for him. Dave has a fetish for gymnastic spots. Watching that show there were a half dozen guys more impressive than Vikingo. and two of them were in their 50s.

The technico ref holding him up there is part of the deal in Mexico. The ropes are absolutely shitty.

The ref helping is really the kicker for me.  Scorpio was doing the multiple spin jumps in 1993 on national TV. And the stand around and catch a guy was in a million WCW lucha matches.

There's nothing specific about that spot that bothers me. Like 909 said, technico ref help happens sometimes even when the wrestler doesn't need it. Needing to grab the ref's hand a second time didn't look great, though. On the flip side, there's absolutely nothing special about the spot either. It's not something I'd be super amazed at if I saw it in WWE.

I'm with tek. That spot isn't really impressive but the ref's involvement doesn't really bother me either. People were praising the superplex spot in the Ali/Buddy Murphy match where the ref held the steel stairs in place and the Becky/Charlotte powerbomb spot at Evolution last year where the ref held on to Becky's top so she wouldn't fall. The ref keeping the competitor's safety is part of why they're there.

It's because Meltzer said something positive, so the people that always shit on everything he says will do so no matter what. He could say the sky is blue, and someone in Twitter would cut it out of context and talk about how wrong he is. When he says something stupid, call him out, but it's no matter what he says that people shit on him.

See...that's my problem, I don't watch enough shitty modern wrestling to see the ref helping spots!

I posted an image from an old Apter mag of a (made up) racist Flair promo on my CXF history article this week.  It is now flying around wrestling twitter (with no link to us :( ) and even Meltz has commented on it.
