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.

When WWE's Kassius freaking Ohno is the penultimate announcement for SSS16, it makes you wonder how massive the final announcement is.

I think it'll be Neville/Pac.

From the latest Observer 
While this has been said before, including at a WWE Investors call, and Vince McMahon changed his mind on it, right now the idea of ICW and Progress from the U.K. going to the WWE Network is back on, at least this week. But this is close enough that we’ve been told the announcement, if it happens, would be coming right around the time or at the Royal Albert Hall shows
We’ve been through this before, but it seems to have more momentum this time with all the talk recently of the tiered Network

Mike Johnson of PWInsiderElite.com commented on Big Cass' status with WWE. Here is what Johnson said courtesy of RingsideNews.com: 
"Nothing is working for Colin Cassidy right now. He’s back on crutches. From what I understand he’s going to go check out to see if he needs ACL surgery again. If that’s the case, that is bad, bad news for him."

i think Vince Russo is now in AAA, the following is taken from the Squared Circle Reddit:

JEFF JARRETT wins the triple threat between Mysterio & Rey Wagner, originally scheduled to just be a dream match between Rey and Rey until Jeff Jarrett unmasked and joined the big heel faction earlier in the night. The ref turns heel in favor of JJ in the middle of the match, so gets knocked out by Wagner. La Parka comes to the rescue dressed as a ref but he turns heel also, allowing Jeff Jarrett to pin Wagner to win the AAA Mega Title.

La Parka unmasks to reveal himself as Konnan. Afterwards REY FENIX WHO WAS SUPPOSEDLY GONE AND GOING TO CMLL, SCHEDULED TO WORK CMLL ON FRIDAY, comes out and takes out all the heels.

tl;dr- Konnan in La Parka cosplay makes himself ref of the main event to help Jeff Jarrett win the main title. And either Fenix screwed CMLL or he's somehow working with mega-enemies at the same time.

Brock's Opponent for Summerslam:


Seth Rollins..Could it be?..Nah...

For what feels like the 10th time this year it's Roman vs Brock again...That's bold in the Brooklyn Centre

Colt Cabana suing CM Punk over claims Punk promised to take care of his (colt's) legal bills and has subsequently told him he's on his own.

CM Punk is so likeable, can see why they chant his name.

WWE pushing a ‘whodunnit’ angle involving Aliester Black. Seems he wont be fit enough to make it to TakeOver.

Whether someone else takes his place or they go ahead with Gargano vs Ciampa 3 is yet to be announced.

Black got injured at a house show when Ciampa crotched him on the top rope required surgery to his groin.

Interesting that the BBC reports on Meltzer & his body shaming of Peyton Royce but sites like Bleacher Report keep away from it. Women's Revolution ain't complete yet.

I saw the photos online and didnt think it would be any more of an obstrution, my biggest problem is it looks more like a toy now. And I had a chuckle at the people asking for the old Blue Bar cage back, as if that wasnt an obstruction.

It’s weird, cos it should be a real shame, and it’s big news, but I’m also a bit meh. Which is probably why he’s leaving, he’s become a bit meh.

Guess it’s nice for their bigger stars now to look out and see an alternative. Three sources, according to the Torch, so you’d expect this isn’t nonsense.

If it’s cos of the “hokey sh**” as mentioned in the article, then he’s not wrong. WWE could have made him unhinged more like Orton, but they’ve made him into a nothing. Equally, the problem of all the brilliance of the Shield is that he’s lived in the shadow of two better performers.

Explains him jobbing out clean to Rollins after a promo about how he’s the one man Seth can’t beat. That’s easily a feud to fill time before Mania, but instead it was one and done. Probably explains the sudden IC title change too.

But it’s a spot someone else can take, and they have an abundance of talent who can.

Equally, it proves WWE can’t just scare talent into staying nowadays.

Dean is just like many others who have fallen victim to Vince's hardon with Brock and Roman. When he won the title off of Rollins at MITB it was huge. Problem with his character was he needed an authority figure to bounce off. He could've been Austin 2.0. But they bottled it, put him in some seriously cack feuds and then stuck him back with the Shield.

Death knell was when he turned after Roman's announcement. Vince wanted impact, and what most people thought was that 'Why would you do that, Vince?'.

There is nothing organically he can move into. It would all be forced. Although him going up against Nia would be awesome.

I think his turn was the perfect timing, but like Dolph said they built him up all wrong. He should have been a genuinely terrifying heel who was properly sadistic, instead he came out slagging off the home town crowds like every other heel in the past 60 years. It should have been something special but I was over it after two weeks.

His first singles run was a bit of fun but didnt go anywhere, his WWE title win was marred by being in the middle of the year during the slump, then be became second fiddle in the AJ/Elsworth thing.
