I’m reading about some AEW matches that have already happened or are about to air and I saw that Billy Gunn is teaming with his son Austin as the Gunn Club. How does that work? I can’t see WWE letting billy use the Gunn name, but apparently he even has shirts with it. I figured they’d argue it’s violating their copyright.
Did they not renew the billy Gunn copyright, or does Billy have some special deal that allows him to use the Gunn name in exchange for commenting on video complications or something?
Just real li wondering how long wwe is gonna let it slide…
"The Honky Tonk Man is #19 at 30:30"
"Vader is #30 at 50:00 and he tosses Honky at 50:30"
They booked Honky to go twenty minutes in the Rumble?!? I mean, I know
the roster was thin, but FUCK. Who made that call?
I've seen that Rumble a handful of times and I don't remember that
booking at all…
Goldust to “The Artist Formerly Known As” and them eventually walking back and going
to the standard Goldust look and gimmick a few months after they killed it off.
Other than Chavo Jr. in 2005 (for reasons that were done probably for 1 very significant
reason), any other notable gimmicks where a wrestler did a drastic change that
bombed, forcing the company to abandon ship and go back to what worked before?
Warrior faces Savage in title vs career while Hogan faces Slaughter. Then maybe have UT cost warrior the title over the summer and have Hogan win at summer slam?
Wondered if you could shed light on something that is bugging me.
I'm watching the Dec 7, 1998 edition of Raw on the Network and Michael Cole is alongside Jerry Lawler on commentary. During the first match, Cole sends condolences to Jim Ross and his family after the passing of JR's mother.
Yet on certain camera angles, it is clearly JR (complete with cowboy hat) sat at the commentary desk alongside "The King".
This episode is supposedly 1 night after Capital Carnage in London, so i'm guessing this Raw was recorded before the UK trip, but why redo commentary when JR can clearly be seen at ringside? After all, it wasn't a secret that Raw wasn't live every week.
Really enjoying watching AEW wrestling since it started, but I'm drunk and bored before it airs here in the UK so answers please-
1) Is this the most entertaining Chris Jericho we have ever seen
2) JR love him but he just seems off a step, time to hang up the Mike and move to backstage/taped AEW Dark Comms
3) Womans Divison could be great but cant keep track, how many do you cut
4) Ray Fenix is amazing, Play it right run him as top single star for a year, it could work right
5) Do we need a mid card belt to elevate some of the top guys
Finally would you change much currently or are you invested enough to let it roll on.
As a follow-up to my question about the separate Hogan/Savage house show tours, I once read something that Charlie Reneke – so yes, consider the source – opined that the actual Mega-Powers break-up at The Main Event had a bit of flopsweat stink to it, because
they had to hotshot the whole angle in one night because they blew so many chances to gradually build up dissension between them, with Hogan as the unequivocal babyface. This has some holes, as they definitely did tease problems (Savage dilly-dallying in
making the save when Hogan was being double-teamed by the Towers), but there were some definite missteps in building it up, particularly in keeping Hogan the virtuous one (see the Royal Rumble). What say you? Is there a point to be made there?
Similarly, have you yet conceded that Hogan should have won at WM5, because you don't do a fuck finish at your biggest show for the express purpose of building up a smaller show?
Who would you actually like to see win the Rumble this year that makes sense but isn’t the obvious choice? Personally, I think Ricochet or Kevin Owens would both be great choices – especially if they faced Brock, still allowing Fiend vs. Roman to happen. For the women, maybe Sasha Banks as a logical way to get to the rumored Bayley vs. Sasha match.
Who winning would make it most worth your while when you sit down for a five hour PPV next Sunday?
Apparently not even RVD is immune to the powers of the prudish incels who police Twitch. There was a NIPPLE shown at one point, see.
