That Flash Morgan Webster interview with Excalibur was great and made me download other episodes of his. The accents and some audio issues with people talking in the background were a bit distracting but it's a dang good podcast.

Lower card WWE talent spend about half of their earnings on the road - hotel, car rental, food etc. Good indy draws have their expenses largely.

The Smackdown live event payoffs being really bad these days is something I've heard recently. But you don't really need to be told that just look at attendances.

Also be under no illusion things like NXT and 205 Live are efforts to lower wrestler bargaining power, the value of a WWE contract etc.

It's weird cause a lot of indy talent have a difficult choice if they really want a WWE run right now. They 100% need to go right now if they want a WWE cause those chances may not be there if the TV deal is the same or lower in 2019. But as you say it's also 100% clear the NXT/205 live deals are there to both lower talent
costs and starve out the big drawing indies.

I like how he started off with "well my best memory is my kids being born" but had to end it with a fight anyway.

If I told my wife I had sex with Bull Nakano, she'd give me a fist bump and a "nice."

Can't believe Dave just blurted out that he had a threeway with Frye and Takayama like that.

If my wife ever put up a Beatles poster in the World Headquarters of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter I'd be sure to remind her how much better the Crush Gals were.
