I feel sad for my friend Kevin because his friend got fired because a 70 year old man was upset that a bunch of dudes took a picture with a bus in front of one of his many events.

Ellsworth is in a really toxic relationship. He could find a nice lady who loves him for what he is and isnt using him as a surrogate for her loving military boyfriend who comes to visit this weekend.

This are my toughts on this matter

Way to be a closed minded rear end about a consensual BDSM based wrestling relationship. I support their relationship and applaud their bravery for being so open about it.

Carmella is abusing my friend with promises of extreme sex but he wants affection and company. In the future the sex will get boring and she is going to return with her military boyfriend. After a trip to the ER for alcohol dehydration he will see things clearly and things will start to get better

Its not like the WWE to be petty over something like the Bullet Club turning up at RAW. Its probably a professional, sane reason like Jacobs having a history of drug abuse.

Represent.

That makes me wonder - what would they do if someone were in the front row facing the hard camera, wearing a Chris Benoit shirt? Would they make him leave? Turn it inside out? Make him buy another shirt from merch? Comp him a CenaRoman shirt and insist they wear it instead?

Vibrating rear end is funny, but that it was for loving Eric Rowan turning face and teaming with Cena makes it so much better.

SatoshiMiwa posted:

Imagine how quick Ricochet will get depushed if he gets anywhere close to Bryan pop!

Have to think lower and mid card talent are looking at lower house show payments and no PPV money and Cody doing well on the Indies and wondering if they can do that. Someone like Neville probably can make as much on the Indies/Japan and be happy with the work where WWE seems to have a very hard size large/push ceiling right now

Remember how Ricochet went to the performance centre a few years ago and apparently ruffled feathers because people there were in awe of him. How to piss off WWE: be too good that people are impressed by you

Cody's making more money now than he ever was in WWE, apparently. I imagine the envy runs high for some performers.

Kenshin posted:

Cedric Alexander is the best wrestler in the Cruiserweights (and I say that with several other really amazing performers being there too).

I'm looking forward to him getting the title belt and holding onto it for a while.

gently caress Enzo's promos talking about Cedric's charisma. Both because it doesn't make sense in kayfabe, and because rather than letting me decide, I'm just being told that Cedric won't be a person worth watching.


They hosed up Kalisto's entrance! Yeah the trampoline exists, but you don't need to heavily show it!

The Young Bucks aren't my cup of tea unless they're being the psycho Bucks in NJPW Jr Heavyweight tag team title matches. Having said that I respect them for blazing their own path and pissing off so many idiots doing it.

Having said THAT, Kenny is better at it than them.

Calling any wrestler a try hard is the dumbest thing to me. You find a thing that works and you exploit it. That's wrestling. They honestly didn't do poo poo wrong in their bullet club invasion. They don't owe anything to wwe. That being said though how can you fire a guy for a picture with people. That doesn't make sense to me.
