Now that's a name I never thought I'd hear again

He seemed to get weirdly big in Mexico for awhile. I know he was like the star of that Lucha Libre USA promotion to popped up for a minute as AAA's attempt to break into the US before Lucha Underground.

Taven's winning the belt because they're gonna do Taven vs. Rush in MSG and Taven is going to win via outside interference so that they have logical story for when they sign Dragon Lee

I'm basically echoing the discussion from WOR, but that has to be due to the departure of the AEW guys, right?

I know, ROH only ever said Tanahashi, Okada and Naito would be there, but I'd guess many bought going "HELL YEAH KENNY AND THE BUCKS MANIA WEEKEND WOO"

On April 21 at Berale Club in Central Israel, ROH World Champion Jay Lethal is scheduled to defend the title against David Starr in the main event of the Israeli Pro Wrestling Associationís Passover Bash 2019.

A Passover PPV is amazing.
Also I'm kind of shocked Starr hasn't ended up with ROH or AEW properly yet?

I watched an episode of Ring of Honor TV for the first time the other day. lmao at the advertisements. There were three breaks, the first and third were for medicare advantage plans and the middle break was for reverse mortgages. It seems they think the average viewer is over 65, which doesn't track with what I see in the audience. I suppose there are some folks who miss the days of Steamboat and Rhodes and all that, but it seems more like existing ROH fans are more likely to be former attitude era WWF or ECW fans - so dudes in their 30s and 40s.

It's the same TV commercials on HonorClub. You'd think they'd advertise waifu pillows and X-Boxes or whatever.

The average Raw viewer is over 50, the average Impact on Spike viewer was even older so advertising to that demo is not unusual.

Really? I had no idea the average raw viewer was over 50. I assumed since they were going for kids they were getting kids.

lmao this makes wrestling considerably less cool. Which, is already a pretty low bar.

It is. Basically they are issuing you a loan (which can be sent as a monthly payment rather than a lump sum) secured by home equity. They're marketed to seniors because they generally have their homes paid off and are nearing the ends of their lives, so the loan can just be repaid by their estate with the sale of the home when they die.

Yeah it's just cash payments that come from your home equity. From what I can tell it doesn't usually screw over the senior so much as it screws over their kids, because they won't get to inherit the home or they inherit with a debt attached. My dad's GF got screwed by this cause her mom took one in old age.
