This has been going on for a good while now but it’s finally over. Basically TNA was accusing WWE of having inside information on talent’s contracts and trying to steal some of said talent. As of today, that’s all over with. Odds are there was a settlement of some sort but details would likely never be released.
I dunno if this has anything to do with the investor's call tomorrow, but they decided to drop Mason Ryan just to be on the safe side. Which is weird because they have been literally not firing anyone ever and just letting guys ride out their contracts (JTG, Tatsu, Ryder) no matter how much of a lost cause they are. Ryan in particular got a million chances and was even talked about as replacing Roman Reigns in the Shield when the split was going to happen. Oliver Grey got SQUASHED by Camacho in his big return after months off, so obviously they were getting rid of him. Either way, weird timing to just suddenly jettison a bunch of super-cheap guys like that.
The Network's initial subscriber count is 667,000 and stock is dropping like a rock. And not the awesome kind. It's still a very respectable number, but obviously all the people buying up the stock were counting on a million.
So if 700,000 people in North America have the network, that's not gonna leave much for the buyrate for WM, I'd assume.
It's about time he broke character. He should have done it back when he dropped The Deadman gimmick and became a biker. It would've made a lot more sense to do it then.
I'd actually be happier if we never saw him as the stale, boring, Deadman ever again. It was played out even by 1996 and by 1999 it was just getting beyond silly.
I know, right? That dude's just all over TV, week after week, doing the same thing every time. Why doesn't he take a year long break after each match?
