1. Do you think if the world had seen Trump bald 9 years ago, would he be president today?
2. I really like Tye Dillinger and wish he were on tv more (or ever). Do you think he can re-invent himself and make it back up the card at some point?
I realize that second one is extremely unrelated, but since this email is largely a joke, might as well ask a semi-serious question while I’m here.
It's a Lex Luger question!
Looking back, I don't understand how promoters kept screwing up Lex Luger over and over again? He had several rocket pushes and then it seemed like always at the last second they didn't pull the trigger on him. Was it Lex lacking “it”? Was it politics? Bad timing? Promoter greed?
Hey Scott. If you're going to book a long term champion – at least one year in length – do you go with a babyface or heel? It seems the popular answer is heel, but could you make a case with Hogan in the 80's? Or is he the exception to the rule?Also, are there any babyface title runs that you think ended too soon?Thank you!
Hey Scott,Do you find it at all strange that Enzo got basically ZERO sympathy for losing his job based on a rape allegation made by a SELF-ADMITTED crazy person that was almost certainly a lie? I mean everyone basically went, “Pfft, serves him right for not informing WWE higher-ups who are constantly sending mixed messages and demoting/firing people for the most insane reasons possible.”I mean, I get it that the guy is an ass in real life but, jeez.ᐧ
Excellent work on the Blog, always worth reading.
Last year I went to a bar in London that was hosting a WrestleMania party, so about 200 or so grapple fans in together to watch the granddaddy of 'em all. Now, this is in the U.K., so the pre-show starts at about
10pm and the show goes on until about 5am. Towards the end of the show, notably during Reigns vs Taker, some people were starting to doze off, and the bouncers of the nightclub were actually threatening to throw people out for being asleep. Now, throwing
out sleepers is standard bouncer behavior, but don't you think WWE should give some consideration to their international audiences? If a man gets thrown out of a bar for falling asleep during a Taker match at 4.30am (and I could think of nothing that would
more reasonably send a man to sleep) and he then has literally nowhere else to go at that ungodly hour, shouldn't WWE be answerable in some way to this? They just don't think of the man on the street when they're engaging in such self-indulgent show running
times!! I would love to go to a WrestleMania party at this bar again this year, but have legitimate worry of being thrown out because WWE's never-ending show is putting me off. What would you do??
What was the reasoning trying to compete with RAW?
I haven’t been watching some old 80s wrestling commercials on Instagram and YouTube that have popped up and I was noticing that Hogan is not in a lot of them you see a lot of upper mid card guys JYD, Steamboat, Volkoff, Skeik even Piper.
Was this on purpose to make Hulk feel like he was the “superstar”?
See the screenshot of an email I got from Ticketmaster today for the advertised as Raw-only PPV in May. I wonder if this is a one-off or if they’re moving away from dueling PPVs every other week. I mean if it’s a one-off… why Backlash?
