ATTENTION HOTLINE FANS!

There is hot news circulating about your favorite or most hated promotion or wrestler, but because of the sensitivity of these scoops I can't talk about them here on Something Awful.

To get the low down exclusive, call my hotline now!


Nicole Matthews:

Have a lot of respect for Nicole. She's kind of like the female Chuck Taylor character wise. Sadly she's more or less exiled up in Vancouver. A very expense plane ticket for US promoters. Hope this raises her profile.

I'm sure there's a lot of scoops and stuff regarding who's in the MYC but the reveal is literally a couple hours away at this point so I'd rather just watch it than read who happens to be in the Florida area

Good for Nicole! She and Veda Scott had a tryout a couple years back that I'd hoped would land them both jobs since there's so few women in the division who can cut a good promo. I don't see Nicole making it too far, but her character work is so good hopefully she gets an opportunity to show it.

I'm going to the show tonight and tomorrow. I'm really interested to see how things shake out even though the finale won't be for a couple months.

I was at the Rise and Shimmer shows this past weekend, Definitely lucky to see some of these women in that space before they possibly head to WWE. I hope Nicole Matthews gets more opportunities in the US too, she was great. Shayna is legit. Rosemary was awesome, though pairing up with Angel Dust felt odd. She's got the athletics and technique, but zero personality. I hope she does benefit from the pairing. There's some real talent at Rise. I know Dave Prazak must be sweating over the sizable vacancies he's had in the past year, but much of the younger talent has the technique and passion to go places fast. Shotzi Blackheart was definitely a standout, Hudson Envy seems to have a lot of potential. Delilah Doom was awesome, her and Leva Bates were perfect together.

Sadly, he two best promos in women's wrestling right now are in Orlando and not being used for the Mae Young Classic (Nicole Matthews was, apparently, an alternate and Veda Scott was int he SHINE tournament). Hopefully they get another go soon.

E: I attended the show tonight (and will be back tomorrow). No spoilers, just a few notes:

- The Alpha Female/Abby Laith match was WAY better than I expected, and was probably the first match of the night to get the crowd really pumped up after a pretty intense striking exchange.
- Toni Storm was way over in a way that kind of took me by surprise considering I didn't know how much of the crowd was made up of people who would've seen her work in Stardom et al.
- Most of the "guests" at ringside came out and didn't even stay for the match, but props to Charlotte, Bayley and Emma for sticking out the whole show even after they'd been introduced.
- Kairi Sane's pirate music and costume is ridiculous and I love it.
- It looked like Dakota Kai scraped her arm up pretty good, hopefully nothing internal got busted
- A couple of what I would consider medium-sized surprises in the first round. Much like the CWC, I expect things to start getting a bit more predictable at tomorrow's taping

I'm curious how people feel about spoilers for this tournament - do you want specifics/results put under spoiler tags while we're waiting for the episodes to air at the end of August, or are you happy for people to just discuss results openly? If the former, do people also want Netflix style spoiler rules where there is a small grace period for specifics on anything past episode one to be spoiler tagged?

The really important match is the final of course, which will be live and thus doesn't have this issue, but there is probably a lot of cool stuff that could happen in the taped segments leading up to that.

TheHock

Really cool stuff happened tonight, and I suspect the same will be true tomorrow. I just think that I would want to go in as fresh as possible, and I don't want to rob other people of the experience of watching it as fresh as possible, which is why I didn't post anything that would be a real spoiler other than that Abby/Jazzy fought.

Jerusalem
May 20, 2004

Yeah this would just be for specifics/results etc, people would be free to post in generalities without tags.

Just given the length of time between taping and airing I thought I'd test the waters as to how people feel regarding spoilers, since I imagine most details of the tapings are going to be out and about pretty quickly online.

I call the darkness unto me from deepest depths of Earth and sea. From ancient evils unawoken, break the one that can't be broken. To blackest night, I pledge my soul and crush my heart to burning coal. To summon forth a deathly power, to see my hated foe devoured.


I'd say to avoid it that way people can forget the results between the taping and the airing.

I think avoiding/spoiler tagging it is the best way to go. August 28th is quite a ways away and I'd rather see it as it's broadcast than knowing what will happen before they show it.

If i ever see an untagged spoiler before the event I will personally send a private message saying, "I wish I hadn't seen the spoiler you posted, if you know What I mean." and will probably include some regional terms that makes people angry such as pop.

No spoilers for the Mae Young classic please. There's already a spoilers thread to talk about that. Seeing a bunch of black bars would get obnoxious too tbh.
