Saito has such an awesome build and look to him. Youíd never mistake him for another guy and he did a lot of fun power moves. Also that match is so peak 1980s AJPW. In that itís an awesome match and also ends in a count out and/or DQ.

I know it's maffew, and he likes to exaggerate some botches by saying "x died after botch"

So FITE TV is putting together a pretty insane package together for Starcast (the event occurring around all in). While this doesnít confirm All In being carried by FITE it makes me think it will be. Hell you get a piece of the ring with this package. Itís also going to cost $149.

https://www.fite.tv/watch/starrcast-full-pack/2o6me/

quote:

NOW Only: Platinum Weekend Pass provides access to over 40 hours of content of the full 4-day live programming and, while supplies last, a piece of the actual ring canvas from ALL IN!

This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for fans to claim their piece of wrestling history and take home a piece of ALL IN for themselves.

Also included in the package are unlimited on-demand replays and $20 credit back on the FITE App to use towards a future pay-per-view of choice.

The Platinum Weekend Pass provides a combined value of $344.95, but FITE is offering this unbelievable package for just $149.99.

Available on a First Come First Served basis while supplies last. Order now!

I cannot believe that people are going to spend $149 to watch Marty Scurll do karaoke and listen to Jeff Jarrett talk about TNA.

I think Conrad mentioned that a far cheaper package without the ring would be coming up.

Back when I had like $200 plus of credit for Fite I could...nah I donít think Iíd even do it then. Maybe the cheaper one. I have to admit some of them do sound cool, just not that much money cool. But hey I canít hate on them trying to make money off of it.

I do want to know when All In itself will be up for order. Iíve kept $65 squirreled away so I can get that. I canít imagine the price being more then $40.

No, I definitely respect The Elite guys for making that money because I have no doubt people will pay. $40 would still be a bit too much for me if the matches yet to be announced are on the level of the ones already announced.

I agree, Iím just flexible since all the money Iíve ever spent on FITE with the exception of $10 came from affiliate credits. Iíve probably had close to $400-$500 all told.

I only mention $40 since thatís what IMPACT charges, not that I ever buy it mind you.

Itís apparently going to an admin hearing which is pretty much a deal killer if they donít reach a newer agreement before hand.

Apparently Sinclair found a way to annoy everyone at the FCC and try and pull some stuff where they could essentially still control stuff they were supposed to divest.

unknown. I've heard her urine tested positive or that she had a substance on her person that tested positive. Could be both. Unlike US media, they tend to be very vague to protect the suspect's privacy.

Its just kind of hosed up that the only thing they have in common for a dual signing is that one paralyzed the other. Like, that is the sum totality of why you would put D'Lo and Droz together in the same sentence and it is kind of messed up that they booked a signing based on that..

Sure it would, I cannot imagine anyone having a problem with an interview talking about the incident

Its just weird to book two guys to appear together for a signing when the only reason their names come up together is because one crippled the other. Like the implicit reason to put them together for this event, without openly acknowledging it, was the accident.
