When Yokozuna won the Rumble, did they know at that time he was going to win the belt from Bret? Was Hogan’s return even in play for WM, much less him winning the belt? Was it ever discussed for Hulk to come back win the Rumble and face Bret at WM IX?
Leading to this week, where they lose the titles to…the makeshift team of Rollins and Murphy, who as far as I know have never teamed and weren’t even stable mates until one week before.
Is there a reason I’m missing why it makes sense to neuter the Vikings without the payoff match with AOP? Or was it just “plans change” – or more so “there isn’t a plan and we are just booking minute to minute?”
talked about the show after it happened. Braun isn't talked about being a Rumble winner. The whole thing is weird. Why are they bringing it up now?
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.
