You think at some point in his life Teddy Hart would have realized that being Teddy Hart isn't working out great for him and try something else.

I took a break from SA for months and haven't watched wrestling in over a year so coming back to this stuff has been crazy rough. I'm like at page 40 of this thread so far and every other person named and explained is like a punch in the gut, but honestly I was already kind of separating from wrestling before that for the general scumminess of the business even outside of the sex assault and surprise sex so I don't really feel like I have a need to come back to it in the meantime

One thing that really sucks about this very specific time we're in is that there are going to be no crowds to try and voice their concerns or hold companies accountable. I'm sure there will be a lot of people who skate by in larger companies for whatever reason, and I feel like it's going to be easier for them to do so without a live crowd shouting them down each week. With WWE especially, I can see this being a real "win" in their minds because they can just keep their heads down and hope that this moment passes without them having to really act at all.

I dunno. Maybe I'm too cynical and everyone will do what's right.

This post was from the 22nd of June.

It's mid September now and a bunch of these fucks are still employeed so yeah

Imagine being a total monster piece of poo poo outside the ring and then making your entire gimmick revolve around people touching your dick. I mean the guy was basically hiding in plain sight for years.

I know guys like Joey Ryan. The way he talks to women in videos when it's just them and him I believe that he really does think he's on their level and cares about them and because he supposedly "means well" he has easier access to loving them. He'd probably say he relates more to women and just gets them like he doesn't get men.

It's super common poo poo in music scenes like I used to be apart of. The straight cis guy who has the soul of a woman and just goes around with the belief that women get that and that's why he's so accessible and open. Most of these people are not serial killers, they don't view themselves as the bad guys at all and are usually legit shocked when it's pointed out their actions are monstrous. It's a ridiculously huge failure in the business specifically and still in worldwide society as a whole

I wouldn't put that just on Meltzer, the whole me too movement showed that it was the whole media landscape that didn't take a lot of this stuff seriously.

Meltzer is continuing to claim that only like 20% 55-60% of the accusations are credible, though. I forget the exact number and I blocked Meltzer for it so I don't want to unblock him to check.

Thanks to MRT for the correction.

His tweet was that in wrestling it is 55 or 60% of claims.

But he was basing it on the 1992 WWF scandals where the numbers didn't track with that estimate.

Also, in the interest of transparency, even if I don't think it really changes the totality of the story much at all:
