Everything Cubsfan points out is 100% correct. Plus, the fact that itís not like dirt sheets can ever spoil the recorded story segments which are as much a reason to watch as anything else (its easier now to find good wrestling via streams, but itís hard to find this kind of wonderful Mortal Kombat style nonsense).

Somebody putting together dots based on social media is hardly a lawsuit that stands up in court, and most dirt sheet reports are hardly play-by-play of matches. And again, LU spoilers miss all of the storyline details by the nature of LUís production.

TOO EASY

I get it, in sort of a roundabout way. The C&D is silly because the guy's just publishing news. But if they're making the audience sign NDAs and people violate those, they should at least have the right to subpoena the journalist to tell them who their NDA-breaking source is. Otherwise don't sign a contract.

If youíre a good journalist, you take multiple measures to alleviate this. Multiple sources, vetting of sources, and correct handling of the details, plus understanding if the information is on background or on the record.

And you tell a lawyer to loving pound sand before burning a background/anonymous source, especially for god damned wrestling news. It isnít exactly Watergate.

This is correct NDAs typically don't stand up in court but it takes lots of time and money to go through the process of fighting them so most people don't

The only way to get it is if you fall on the cop caller side of the shot caller/cop caller equation. Having an audience sign an NDA for a wrestling show is dumb, suing a journalist when your show is losing this much money is insane.

Is PJB still on the mend from his accident? If so, that and Evans leaving pretty much guts WWU. A Mundo/Taya/Ricky trios could be fun though.

They're really leaning into the Mortal Kombat-ness of LU with that poster.

The trailer was very good, but man I remember when this show used to be the one I was most excited for every week

Short of all the other bad decisions they made, I still think the out-of-nowhere break in season 3 did the most damage for me personally.

Yup. LU was just about appointment television for me and my daughter, but we never picked it back up after that. We weren't mad, we just... didn't.
