If memory serves CDAN blamed Selma Blair's MS on her drug use so I'd question their reliability.

We’ve stated that as far as this movement goes, individuals are responsible for their own actions. But we also have a zero-tolerance policy for domestic abuse, child abuse, sexual assault. If someone is arrested for that, they are immediately suspended. If they are convicted, they are immediately terminated. There’s no leeway or wiggle room. That is what it is. We also have the ability to fine, suspend or terminate for anything that has evidence of illegal misconduct or what we deem to be enough evidence to have the right to terminate.

Same. It's a huge bummer. I'm sure it won't mean anything and I won't ever see a response, but I did email them about the fact that they've just publicly ignored the accusations around these two. Maybe if enough people bother them about it they'll actually do/say something.

This could be the most one-sided fight since 1973 when Ali faced an eighty-foot tall mechanical Joe Frazier. My memory isn't what it used to be, but I think the entire Earth was destroyed.

Not that it remotely justifies keeping him if he’s a piece of poo poo, but who is the one that is better?

When Dasha does it she sounds like a late 90s text to speech app just mashing together phonemes and I find her announcing really jarring to listen to.

I like Dasha's ring announcing, so I meant her. Brandi's not bad either but she clearly hates it and doesn't want to do it.

So in a weird twist one of the Riddles have created a twitter account solely for smearing Candy using the legal name of Jamie Senegal. The account is only followed by the marketing company that Riddle is signed to and another whose recovery email began with the letters ri***. Like how can you be so bad at making a sockpuppet account?

Dave's trash. Remember his whataboutism defense of Cornette's racism on NWA commentary? People were going after Cornette for his racist comment because they had an axe to grind, but they didn't do anything about Randy Orton using the N word on a stream!!

Anyways, I hope we get more info on the damage control/coverups/silencing that's going on behind the scenes. I imagine at the very least there's a lot of circling the wagons and scrubbing to keep more stuff from coming out.

Again, people were literally doing this. It was great but people definitely wanted to take down Cornette. I don't get multiple DMs making sure I see and comment on videos because people are reacting normally to things.

You're right. I apologize for derailing the thread, that was totally uncalled for. It was nasty and I'm ashamed I stooped to that level.

There's an account with a joker avatar that appears to be a Riddle/Riddle Lawyer sock puppet too.

But it's easy to be this bad when you are a Bubba The Love Sponge fan who think it is a good idea to go on the Bubba The Love Sponge show and let Bubba call your accuser names.

Huh? Jamie Senegal is an actual person that tweeted about Riddle. Or do you mean that there's also a sock account going by "Jamie Senegal" stanning for Riddle?

Each to their own I guess. To me the best way to describe it is she sounds the way I’d imagine someone who doesn’t speak English and has just been coached through approximating the words might sound. She hits every syllable super hard and super over-enunciated, almost like she’s trying too hard to talk.

It kind of reminds me of the announcer GCW use on their Japan shows except with the benefit of an actual PA instead of whatever they’ve slapped together in that tiny little hall they use.

This is not the ring announcer complaints thread though so it is what it is. They should address the Justin Roberts elephant in the room, potentially lovely backup announcers or not.

So Jamie Senegal is a non-binary wrestler who had an affair with Riddle; it came out when people were like "why would Riddle hook up with Candy Cartwright when he's married" and things were super homophobic and gross because people refused to believe that their alpha bro pothead could maybe be bisexual. The person is using Senegal's real name to attack and harass Cartwright while only being followed by people in Riddle's orbit or obvious alts.

Riddle has changed his story a bunch and he's harassing his alleged victim so I have zero doubt that he's a garbage fire of a human being that probably did coerce Candy into sex. Lisa has also been pulling some "if you come at us then you better not miss" poo poo so I'm pretty comfortable saying that she sucks as well.

Yeah, I agree. Same with Darby, although I've resigned myself to the fact that they're giving him a pass because he's one of their future prospects.

I think he can hear you, Ray.


On CDAN there's a smattering of real news there. And an early blind item about Harvey Weinstein being a rapist was written by Rose McGowan herself. However, in recent years its leaned very very heavily on Conspiracy theory (Anthony Bourdain didn't kill himself, he knew too much for example). It's all variations on the same thing; every child in Hollywood has been abused, every young actress is secretly yachting, every death is suspicious.

That I've seen their increasingly unhinged blind items on Q accounts as 'evidence' says it all.
