If you mean just general gay panic poo poo the WWE has been up to that until extremely recently.

If you're just talking the slightly feminine arrogant pretty boy, I mean, Tyler Breeze is probably the closest you can come to that these days without being outwardly offensively homophobic.

Also Fandango, which makes (a) Breezango (b) the fashion police gimmick so much better than anything Aron Rex or whoever could come up with

Well there was Billy and Chuck, where WWE booked themselves into a corner by saying they were going to get married and having GLAAD come out and be all in favor of it publicly, only to have the two say it was a publicity stunt.

Bischoff being the pastor was a neat swerve but it was a case of WWE not knowing where they were going with an angle and running to the edge of a cliff.

That angle was abominable but that mask Bischoff had and the way he pulled it off was awesome. Legitimately like something out of Mission Impossible.

Yeah that whole angle was loving embarrassing beyond belief and Bischoff actually saved the thing at the last moment.

the actual MAGA stable is Taya/Mundo/Cage when they wrestle in AAA

given that AAA and TNA have some sort of working agreement this is very possible if LU which also hired Pro Trump announcer Matt Striker, goes out of business that we get them in TNA

STOP DOING HEROIN

Serious question here: If the Hardys do the smart thing and stay the gently caress away from TNA with their contracts expired, would they still have the freedom to do their Broken storyline on the indies or Youtube, or does TNA have the rights to "Broken Matt" and "Brother Nero" and whatnot?

I can't see them coming back with Jeff Jarrett holding the book again, but I at least want them to keep doing their thing. Please don't take this away from me.

wait AAA still has ties to TNA? I thought Konnan kiboshed that.

E: I'm not surprised if Russo is in the mix. He and JJ must have read the bible together awesomely once or something.

They still have freedom, basically the only way that gets hosed with is if they go to WWE because that's the only chance they get of having stuff scripted for them

I'd be genuinely shocked if they did, considering the whole Broken storyline is literally Matt and Jeff just doing whatever random poo poo they can off the top of their heads, and that poo poo ain't gonna fly in the WWE.

TNA and AAA haven't had a working agreement outside of that lucha world cup show. TNA is apparently setting up a working agreement with konnan's new promotion The Crash which is the one that uses the hardys and the good former AAA guys (fenix pentagon daga)

honestly an alliance between crash/TNA/NOAH/world of sport to counter the roh/new japan/revpro/cmll alliance and the fed would be neat just because we might get some new matches, but the crash guys being barred from tv because of the lucha underground bullshit fucks that up a fair amount

Honestly, at this point, Russo gonzo booking us the only thing that could give this company a bump.

It's a bad bet with limited payoff and has the potential to anger a lot of people, but that's also been their business model for years.

Yikes. I am honestly not guaranteeing anything just there's a significant circumstance that makes me think something is up.

The last time Russo was involved with TNA it was deeply kayfabed and was revealed by fluke when he emailed Mike Johnson. People for months saw his fingerprints on the product but couldn't confirm.

I really don't want to take you up on this. Will delete my original post if you want. I am just saying Russo is on the radar.

He did but Russo's involvement in the company has been difficult to prove since the foundation of the company on.

I am just saying there's something going on that has made people think something is up in regards to Russo. The dude is a narcissistic nutcase, bro. It may fall through. Time will tell if it is true.

Nope you get a month, after that if there's no Russo you get a probation. Simple as that.

You've been warned and like I said last time, you make plenty of posts that are informative or fun and there's no need to make these "I know something but can't say what it is" posts.
