Dave Meltzer RTs someone mentioning the Yankees acquiring Babe Ruth's contract 95 years ago today, and follows up with this tweet which unearths a live one in the responses:

Really the better comparison involving Austin would be Austin leaving ECW.

But that was more on the agency of Steve and not on Paul so it isn't even a good comparison.

Ruth really got traded for cash reasons (the team owner needed $$$), and not because of disagreements with management.

Just a bad comparison by Dave in most respects.

They're all bad comparisons but Jericho to WWE is probably the most apt

The closest is probably Bret leaving for WCW, but it's still lovely because baseball operations aren't analogous to wrestling operations and the entire owners recompense part or the Ruth trade can't be properly factored in.

The Undertaker (star created in 1990) showed up to "Undertaker" chants and big cheers. He said he's a remorseless, vengeful grim reaper. He said the painful truth is streaks are made to be broken, but Brock Lesnar (star created in 2002) had to remind everyone week after week of his greatest accomplishments, and enough is enough. Lesnar has taken what was once smoldering ashes and turned it into a raging inferno. Undertaker said last night was his resurrection.

Charlotte won with the Figure 8. Brie Bella (50/50. Since a pattern?) was a step slow in spots, particularly when Charlotte missed a Pescado before the break. Brie threw kicks to Charlotte's body and the crowd chanted "Yes" in salute of Daniel Bryan (star created in 2012, despite the company's best efforts otherwise). Nikki, Alicia Fox (50/50) were in Brie's corner while Paige (50/50) and Becky Lynch (2nd Raw) cheered on Charlotte.

I'll be shocked if there's a match in a major promotion that is considered worst than that

As bad as the EC match ended up being in execution, it was planned well. It's just that once Henry's pod popped open, the planning got thrown out the window, and the match sucked until it was down to 3 guys. Then it actually turned the corner and was a decent match again. He was inserted into the match too early, and it really hurt that Sheamus was going to lock himself in the pod until he was ready to come out.

Compare this to the Villanos/Psycho Circus match at AAA Triplemania XXIII which was a) not planned well, b) should not have been booked, c) should not have even gone on for medical reasons, and d) was executed absolutely terrible.

As bad as the EC match was, and if you want to say that Henry's breaking down, it didn't feature a 63 year old stroke victim trying to wrestle.

It's stupid too, because all the ref had to do was lock Mark Henry in the only other open pod.

I'd have to go back and rewatch, but I think Truth was laid out in the pod at the time.


IIRC

Truths pod opened first, Barrett immediately attacked him for a minute or two and left him laying there, the Wade worked over Ziggler and sent him crashing into Henry's pod with about 30 seconds before Ryback entered.

You're hosed no matter what happened, Henry struggling with the ref is going to distract from Ryback babyface heat entrance, or they all watch, which does about the same. Plus Truth is still laid out in it

I blame Big E for getting shoved into that same pod twice in the Tag EC match for ruining the IC EC.

Apparently Gail carried Kong to a decent match which isn't an easy thing to do with 2015 Kong

I didn't watch the show but from everything I heard it was more boring than bad, so I probably won't bother

It was the best match you could get out of 2015 Kong. In that sense it was good, but it was not a good match to watch. Especiall when there is a spot where Kong goes outside, and starts to grab chairs and starts throwing them into a pile. She walks to get one next to where Robert Irvine (Gail's husband) is sitting in the front row and he grabs it and won't let go because he realizes "Hey you're going to use this on my wife! No!" and then Earl Hebner starts arguing with him as Kong gives Fail an implant driver onto the other chairs.

The only 2 good matches on the card were probably the Ultimate X match which was nothing but spots, and the Tag Title match, which in some regards had some really stupid overly planned spots (superkicking a guy that's helping his partner up, so one partner gives the other a DDT). Stupid, but a decent palate cleansr after the Gauntlet for Gold.

Lashley vs Roode was a nice technical match that no one gave any shits about because it was face vs face and no one worked heel.

Eric Young lost a match that was stopped for medical reasons 10 minutes before.

The Main Event had one of the most retarded finishes I've ever seen.

My Official Statement Regarding ‪#‎BoundForGlory‬ and the ‪#‎injunction‬ against Matt Hardy as TNA Heavyweight Champion.

Hello,
My name is Ethan Carter the Third (the third of my name,) the only undefeated World Champion in TNA History and, as preposterous as this is to say, the only undefeated former World Champion in Wrestling History.

For the two years I've been in TNA I have thrived and succeeded. Like many, I started at the very bottom, I had to earn my successes. Fortunately I was blessed with determination, resolution, a formidable skill set, and most importantly, unwavering fan support. Through these gifts, the world watched on 7/01/15 EC3 (me) defeat the greatest champion of our time, Kurt Angle, and culminate a life's work by becoming THE World Champion.

One does not take that honor lightly. As my reign as champion began, I made a promise wrestling fans across the globe that the sanctity of that title would be upheld. The World Title would be contested with one thing in mind.

FAIR COMPETITION.

Well FAIR COMPETITION is not what transpired on 10/04/15 in Charlotte, NC.

Collusion is defined as "secret cooperation for an illegal purpose" and in the court of public opinion, allow me to present you with the facts.

-The owner of the company, with her own interests in mind, change the originally scheduled EC3 v. Galloway World Title Match, to a triple threat AFTER the contracts were signed.

-The owner of the company changed the official of the contest without giving the champion more than one week's notification.

-The official is not only a disgruntled former employee of the champion but also the FREAKING BROTHER OF THE CHALLENGER.

-The official was directly involved in the match's conclusion by assaulting the champion.

Those are simply the facts.

These facts, this evidence of collusion, was enough that my legal team saw and was granted an injunction via the seventh circuit court that prevents Matt Hardy from appearing on Impact Wrestling as TNA World Champion.

Matt Hardy has two options now. Relinquish the title back to my possession, striking your win from the record books, and I will see it fit you have a one-on-one match in a fair setting, or, never appearing on TNA Television again.

I am the champion this company needs, and even through this tumultuous time I still feel deserves.

Justice will be served.

Thank you,
Ethan Carter III
