News items that dont merit their own thread...thread

Post by The_Enigma on Thu 17 Dec 2015, 10:44 pm

First topic message reminder :

I totally understand that the majority of you may dislike or have never seen any form of Independent Wrestling so turn a blind eye to it but I truly believe this is such a powerful promo hyping something that we all share here...

This is Mike Quackenbush, founder of Chikara Pro and I quite frankly consider him to be one of the best storytellers in the business. Enjoy.

It's easy for them to make it work. Vince can explain his reasons by simply what's best for business. E.G ratings are up, reviews are up, everyone's enjoying it more etc.

Even if they do make it work it makes the whole match and spectacle pointless.

The whole thing was a mess from the start but undoing the main stipulation this soon is just insane. Its like Cena appearing one week after being fired during the Nexus angle. Or CM Punk returning 2 weeks after 'leaving forever'. Or if Kane put his mask back on the week after taking it off. Its bull Poopie and a slap in the face.

I think this part makes more sense than the pre-Mania stuff. I think it will likely see the start of the Authority's death, which will hopefully ramp up with the return of Rollins

Apparently he severely injured his hip and was using a walker over the weekend.

Cody Rhodes has set this up clap

The campaign for the “Our Ladder” t-shirts should be launching in the next week, however I did want to inform fans that to honor late Pro-Wrestling star Kris Travis, the charity receiving 100% of the profits will be CAVENDISH CANCER CARE.

Full disclosure, I never had the privilege to meet Kris. I know in pro-wrestling gaining the respect of your peers is invaluable and does not come easy. When asked about him, a trusted peer of mine said he was a “good man.”

With the industry muddled in social media-negativity and selfishness we could certainly use more individuals like Kris. With Tommaso Ciampa’s help, I am really looking forward to launching this campaign.

Wonderful gesture. If Cody can get more WWE guys behind this then I think Travis getting the Warrior Award is a real possibility.

Following the recent earthquakes New Japan has made the decision to cancel its up coming Wrestling Hinokuni show in Kumamoto

Despite not sharing the same name this card along with Wrestling Dontaku later in the week forms a 2 part set of tour ending shows, with 3 titles and one big singles match set for Hinokuni

It's unclear at this point what New Japan will do with these matches and whether Dontaku will be restructured into a super show or if New Japan who are notoriously careful with presenting matches that could draw, will place these matches along the next tour to try and bump houses

John Cena has told Rolling Stone magazine that while he understands why the WWE is PG, he would like to see blood and violence make a return.

I’m a 38-year-old man. I’d much rather it be a program geared toward me, whether that’s TV-14 or sometimes even more graphic than that, which is what I like. For one thing, profanity brought fire out of people with personalities that backed the language. It’s very difficult to say, ‘Oh, you’re being poopy,’ especially when they’re meant to be fighting words. And now, if someone starts to bleed, the referee intervenes to stop the bleeding. But before, you’d just let it fly. Blood is one of the things that made fights cool. Like, you knew it had gotten serious. I understand why we don’t do it anymore. Vince has been a coach to me, a father figure, a boss and a friend, and his goal and my goal are the same: to make the company be as big as it can be. But, yeah, the blood is one thing I miss.

I obviously don't know him personally, but I'm pretty sure Swagger isn't unhappy with his spot. It's not a Sandow or Zack Ryder situation. He's on good money by all accounts because he's reliably popular, particularly at house shows. He's never stood out as somebody who is desperate to get to the top.

Must be something more to the Brennan release than meets the eye. Guy never set a foot wrong as far as I could tell and was good at his job. Better than Phillips anyway and worked well with Graves.

Apparently Bobby Roode and Eric Young left TNA because they were both owed an insane amount of money. Like a 6 figure amount each.

Well they are "TNA Originals", so maybe they felt a certain amount of loyalty and tried to give the company time to turn things round.

As for Dixie Carter, where's Bully Ray with a table when you need him?

Couldnt think of where else to stick this but in here: Camp WWE was actually pretty funny and worth a watch.

I dont think its going to be everyones cup of tea, but if you like Family Guy and things like that its worth a watch.

Vince McMahon was a highlight, the exact opposite side of the coin we've seen for years. Its worth watching just to hear him call people assholes and threaten to hit Triple H in the face with a bag of frozen walnuts.

In an update to Adam Rose's suspension

Rose has finally posted Dr Charles DeVine’s letter on the Twitter, which explains Adam has “chronic signs and symptoms of ADHD” for which he takes “Adderall XR, which is an FDA-approved treatment.” The letter goes on to say, “we have followed all standard of care protocols during his treatment, which has gone very well. He takes his medication as prescribed and he is compliant with my treatment recommendations.”



A fan replied to Rose on Twitter asking why he didn’t go to the WWE doctors immediately for permission when he was first prescribed Adderall. Rose responded that “they knew about it for over a year.
