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!


It used to be the thing 10 plus years ago - Rene Dupree, Kenny Dysterka etc.

And isn't Orton basically the only one that kind of worked out? (And even he's not AS big a deal as WWE want him to be)

Dream irritates me slightly because he's so loving good, but he never closes his mouth. EC3 deserves the 5 star just for his little ploy at the beginning trying to get Lars and Dain to fight.

This was a really good NXT and I like wrestling.

The UK shows are going to have British Strong Style vs TUE on night one, and every NXT belt except Black's defended on night 2.

Glad to see her back. She seems much more relaxed and happier to be there as well.

"Normal" people ease up so not to get injured before their big break, but she was doing really stupid poo poo in her matches towards the end. I kind of worried she was hoping to get injured and have an excuse not to go. Also she was in super shape for her January Stardom tour, but by the time she left for Florida she had put on quite a bit of weight. Looks terrific in that picture though.

I feel similarly about AoP. I thought those guys should've held the belts for a year before they even THOUGHT about bringing them up. I know they pretty much had nothing left to do in NXT, but I still feel like it was a little early for them.

"had nothing left to do" describes most of the WWE's main roster. Daniel Bryan has:

held the World Heavyweight Title
held the WWE Heavyweight Title
held the Intercontinental Title
held the United States Title
held the Tag Team Title
won Money in the Bank
main evented Wrestlemania.

Technically, he should leave since there's nothing left for him to do.

What was the episode where Black called Velveteen Patrick?

Since I posted in the wrong thread, I'll just say that I really hope they give Dream at least another 6 months to a year in NXT to develop.

they shouldn't call up velveteen dream because he needs to beat aleister black for the nxt title first

On today's Wrestling Observer Radio Meltzer was still talking about the possibly of Dream being called up.

Jeremy Corbyn has been made the subject of an official complaint to the Labour party over his suggestion in 2013 that some British Zionists do not understand 'English irony'.

Are you offended?

Why not put in a complaint?




They might call up Dream. They did call up Drew McIntyre (in case you missed it)

Drew is a different case, though. Dream has tons of potential, but when he's not in there with a top-tier pro, he gets pretty nervous and shaky. He's a dude with enough athletic prowess and raw talent that he's easy to carry, and has the potential to be far better than even that, but McIntyre is nearly a decade older and has that much more experience. Drew was called up to the main roster at about the same age Patrick Clark is now, and that was 110% a mistake in hindsight.

Drew was also slotted to be called up soon after he lost the title, but he had his injury. Now they just injured his career by pairing him with Dolph instead

Dream needs to be on NXT for at least another year, preferably more. He's immensely talented and amazing but he's also incredibly young and green and there is no need to rush him.

The match with Black at Takeover Wargames was his coming-out party. He didn't really do anything but jobber squashes before that, but the Black feud and match really showed off his potential as a total-package performer.

Dream and Black is just a feud that worked on every level, from the promos to the work to the booking. It's NXT in its purest form. Put your guys in a position to succeed and let them make magic.
