I was gonna make a comment on how WWE got Lashley over the exact way TNA did but then I looked up the Hurt Business' wikipedia page and discovered its just the Beat Down Clan's page updated and I laughed.

We are told James was actually fine and just did siuch an excellent job of selling that she was out of it that she fooled those in charge, who signaled that the match be stopped, instructions the referee followed."

So Vince is confirmed as a jabronie mark without a life that don't know it a work when you work a work and work yourself into a shoot?

Meditation on inevitable death should be performed daily. Every day when oneís body and mind are at peace, one should meditate upon being ripped apart by arrows, rifles, spears and swords, being carried away by surging waves, being thrown into the midst of a great fire, being struck by lightning, being shaken to death by a great earthquake, falling from thousand-foot cliffs, blinded by needlessly realistic monster genitalia mods in Skyrim,
penetrated by excessively large sparkling dragon dildos. And every day without fail one should consider himself as dead

drat, I forgot about the shark cage match lol

They did like three of them in rapid succession then totally forgot about it. There was one right after Big Cass's heel turn that happened entirely because someone found out Enzo was scared of heights and thought it would be hilarious to suspend him above the ring because that's a normal way to treat your employees.

On the other hand, gently caress Enzo.


edit: I don't mean this as confrontational to you as it might read, it's just gently caress Enzo.

No, I get you, Enzo sucks. That still doesn't justify that kind of treatment in the workplace.

Per Fightful Select none of the recent NXT callups received new main roster contracts. So presumably someone like Keith Lee is making like $120k a year or less to work with Orton who is probably pulling well over a million per year

Fightful posted:

WWE's rationale was that travel and schedule was already significantly reduced, and with cutbacks happening, there was no reason to offer new deals. The money associated with these contracts is way, way below what wrestlers were being offered last year.

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.



My first thought was they must be desperately counter programming something, but I canít think what that might be. Plus thisíll make it tougher for them to counter program full gear since thatís only a month later.

I wouldnít put it past them to completely kill takeovers by running them monthly.

Trying to counterprogram the anniversary episode of Dynamite by hurrying a build to a takeover along, maybe?

Wrestlers can't unionize. Too many of them are addicts and the ring is their drug. They have absolutely no leverage because they'll have scabs crawling over them to get their fix.

Also this. The worst thing you can ever give those people is exactly what they want. But WWE doles it out in spades.

But at least we can some miniscule comfort in knowing that the best thing Vince and his army of backstage supplicants could ever do in terms of rehabilitating their creative woes is just let go. And it's the one thing they'll never do. If Vince ever slows down he'll die and if Cardona and Cody's testimonies are accurate HHH has a hard-on for keeping everybody in their place.
