    He said she is getting dental work and WWE make women feel very subconscious about looking good all the time?

    I assume I am missing something here?

    yes, I have functioning eyeballs and ears and don’t jump to react to things right away.

    that’s about it. A known Meltzer troll who always devotes his life to “getting” Dave shared an OOC snippet, Charlotte got mad, and now the troll feels vindicated and PG is reacting by calling Dave a cunt because he hates Meltzer.

    Meltzer is alright, but he’s generally bored by anything that isn’t Japan or the young bucks. I love alvarez and his wacky group of shows. He’s very entertaining and kinda holds the whole site together at this point.

    The two screen grabs are Charlottes tweet I don't know what else to say, The first paragraph of her tweet is probably most telling.

    'yeah I just LISTENED, I thought dave would have learned his lesson from LAST TIME'

    “I just listened”

    to that same out of context twenty second clip that you can hear in that tweet she’s replying to.

    Oh I totally get the PG part.

    Saying the WWE is all about their wrestlers looking good all the time (male or female) is fair comment surely. I mean it's pretty obvious.

    I'm confused as to how this is body shaming really. I mean if she isn't getting her teeth done then fair enough for saying he is talking rubbish but this feels like a major stretch.

    Nowt wrong with getting your teeth done either...

    I assume this is the Peyton Royce (Or whatever she is called now) thing? It's not even remotely the same.

    exactly. He isn’t body shaming at all. Dave is literally saying “Charlotte is getting dental work and a whole makeover because they make you feel bad about yourself”

    But people are taking this as Dave saying “SHES UGLY AND NEEDS WORK DONE”

    Its really odd.

    You’re legit overreacting to something that you heard out of context. Why do you get so riled up about things? I can not imagine what your blood pressure must look like. Breathe a bit, my guy. It’s wrestling.

    He has her number...he cant be all bad?

    Seriously, what is the actual story here though? Charlotte is kicking off over something, fair enough but from what is there there is no story at all? Is saying the WWE is obsessed with how their wrestlers look a lie? It's fairly evident (and not even a bad thing to me if thats what they want to present.)

    Let me get this straight. No one on here was furious when WWE medical incorrectly thought Charlotte was pregnant and pulled her from WrestleMania before she could take a pregnancy test, but Meltzer states facts and he's the bad guy?

    Someone from WWE mailed Mickie James her stuff in a garbage bag that said Mickie on it and they were fired for it.

    I love the idea that they mention guys want to hang and play video games and assume that didn't include the prospect of having sex.

    Ignoring the simple fact that shouldn't even be a concern in the first place.

    That kind of open discussion about cosmetic surgery is going to be the next steroid scandal if Vince isn't careful.

    The WWE corporate mindset is so odd. We cant have guys getting juice because that would make people think the combat fighting show they're watching is too violent and who knows what kind of lawsuits might follow. But yeah lets just openly demand our female talent get tit jobs because we need guys to wanna fuck them. (By the way this HAS to be a Vince thing. Giant plastic boobs haven't been an in-thing since 90210 was still on. Sable would never be a thing now.)

    So is this supposed to defend Meltzer for his constant idiotic comments toward women? No need to defend your creepy grandfather. Surprised his heart hasn't exploded with all the roids he's still pumping into his body at Dave's age.

    You can't possibly believe any of this that you posted? I mean, even I sometimes have to step back and read the bullshit about AEW I've been posting but come on lol

    You think this could wind up like the steroid scandal? Tell me, how did that work out in the end? Pretty sure the only people who looked like idiots were Nailz and the US government. I would love to know where you came up with that comparison.

    AJ Lee's career didn't seem to be affected one bit by not getting breast implants so what the fuck is the problem? Do people want Dave Meltzer to be right and Vince to be wrong so bad they're willing to sound just as stupid as he does?

    My theory is he is trying to atone for his past sins by pointing out anything wrong he can find with other people. If it deals with any of the hot topics of race, gender, etc., he doubles down on it to try and make himself look like he's a classy fella.

    The Peyton Royce thing was wrong, but he really didn't say anything wrong here. Actually what he said is right, WWE do make the women that work for them subconcious about their bodies. Charlotte should be getting made at WWE.

    Love the fact that Trips and Steph said the person who did it was fired. Was someone fired for sending CM Punk his papers on his fucking wedding day?

    It's not about WWEs policies, views whatever I have already said this, They have lots of ridiculous ideas.

    The point is Dave making assumptions and speculations that are upsetting people. I honestly don't see it why it's so hard to grasp.

    Well this is the company lead by the guy who didn't understand why people may find Gail Kim attractive.

    Yeah, but he is right though. Vince famously used to say to JR "Get me 10s". It has changed a bit HHH's influence and NXT, but be under no illusions the likes of Lana are there because of their looks and that probably permeates the whole womens locker room.

    I'm not sure why you (and Charlotte actually) are making it a gender thing at all?

    If Charlotte is annoyed that Dave is not being accurate about her getting her teeth done or whatever than fair enough, bit of an overreaction but I get that. This is in no way shape or form body shaming, quite the opposite in fact.

    “Vince said to me, “Do you want to hire this Asian girl, right?… I don’t know, I just don’t know.”” Ross explains. “I said, “Vince, there’s a lot of guys who like Asian women. There’s Asian porn sites.”

    McMahon then responded “No! No! No way, get out,” as if he didn’t believe such a thing as Asian porn could exist.

    WWE signed Gail Kim in 2002, but she left in 2004 due to a lack of wrestling opportunities. She returned in 2008, but left again in 2011, fed up with her lack of opportunity to wrestle. She’s a legitimate in-ring talent, which Ross acknowledges, claiming that she’s one of his favourite wrestlers. However, you can’t help but feel a little dismayed at Ross’ recollection of the McMahon conversation.

    “Asian women have a lot of sex appeal to guys, plus she’s really good” Ross says.

    What a shame that “she’s really good” isn’t the first and only thing that matters when making a hiring.

    The fact that J.R had to use Asian porn to get McMahon interested in hiring Kim is a real shame. The fact that Vince didn’t even believe Asian porn could exist only makes this tale all the more ridiculous.
    Weird, disturbing and amusing all in one. Vince is such an oddball (both good and bad).

    Also, I honestly need the help here, was he fired, or did his contract run out and these were the end papers for it?

    He walked out but was still under contract until we was officially fired when he received his papers.

    I remember him walking out. I think I was in the minority here when I said “can’t we say wtf to that?” as there as and overwhelming showing of support for him in the immediate aftermath of that Rumble.

    The man fired for the garbage bag thing is Mark Carano former senior head of talent relations and of Total Divas fame, according to Dirt Sheets. Also apparently they've been doing that for years. Maria said she also got her stuff in a garbage bag.

    Probably the fact that he had a concussion for which WWE did nothing about, as well as an untreated staph infection - I don't blame him frankly.

    Good for Mickie for pointing that out. Head of Talent Relations is a tough gig, but there's no reason for that garbage move by Carrano. Steph and Trips did the right move by canning him.

    Since Charlotte is getting dental work, that explains her actions assaulting the ref, resulting in her "suspension"

    If you check out the signing/release thread they've been doing that for a long time. Jillian Hall got a garbage bag in 2004. Maria in 2010. Really seems like he's just a scapegoat but also seems like he might be an asshole, so good riddance I guess.

    I suppose the question is did just some of the women get one, did all of the women, or did all of the released talent regardless?

    I'm also quite intrigued about what stuff they left behind and why. Do they have lockers at WWE Headquarters or something? I suppose they would do.

    You plow into threads making assumptions and speculation on people being vile.cunts al the time because you don't agree with them. Pretty much the same scenario

    To be fair to Lana, when she first came in as Rusevs manager you could argue she was the best on the mic in the whole company. She's just not very good as a wrestler and they haven't known how to use her since.

    Roman, since teaming up with Paul E, has been an absolute beast of a heel.

    It’s almost like he’s been waiting years for the leash to be removed by management so he can run freely...

    Honestly, I could agree with this solely based on the fact that he's never really said anything truly negative about either company. When he "rims" AEW it's like one of those shitty parents who are like "Now Chris, I know you didn't mean to take a shit on your sister while she was asleep so let's make sure we use the potty next time ok big guy? Thanks!"

    He's never truly be objective about AEW. NJPW I would actually say he has shit on them, he's been following that company since the 80's so it's not impossible to imagine he hasn't always jerked himself off to sleep holding his Masa Chono plush. AEW hasn't been around long enough and again, what he does say "bad" about them is almost like he's just saying it so people don't think he's a shithead.

    So the three world champions of the three companies big enough to have world champions are Roman Reigns, Kenny Omega, & Will Ospreay.

    That's a crew.

    Roman is champion of the Universe.

    That's some drunken Bill Watts logic right there. If they're the World Wrestling Federation we'll be the Universal Wrestling Federation.

    Just going by the name of the title they hold. Though I guess Lashley is just WWE Champion.

    It's the trap anyone falls into when they try to have 2 equal champions so it's not just WWE. Whoever is the # one guy and has the belt that's the real belt. WCW fell into it too. Which ever belt Flair was going for whether it be NWA/WCW International or the WCW Title that was the actual real title of the company. First with Hunter and then with Cena whatever belt they had or were going for was the real title. Reigns is their guy he is their world champion.

    I know the main page is a cesspit (that I visit more out of habit than anything). But why in gods name should we be giving a shit about John Cenas Dad's take on any and every topic lol.

    LOL. Well because it's John Cena's Dad. Back in the 80's Hulk Hogan's Dad used to have an editorial in the WON. All jokes aside, Have you ever watched the shows the host does with other people like Tony Atlas and Marty Jannetty? Holy fucking shit. Somewhat entertaining, Marty Jannetty is probably the weirdest dude in wrestling today.

    Sometimes it can be interesting. That doesn't mean it carries any weight towards anything, but I don't see a huge problem there.

    It’s more the comments on the main page that are pretty bad. Hopefully none of those posters find their way here.

    Although Mike Hogan on the main page seems like a piece of work.

    The biographies for Randy Savage and Rowdy Roddy Piper were both good on A&E. The WWE Treasures show is also a good watch. I liked the one with Undertaker and Kane more than the Jerry Lawler one but I did learn that Lawler is a really good artist.

    I imagine a lot of us are posting on the main page as well.

    I still need to catch Savage. Finally watched Piper last night, incredible.

    Oh man you're just finding out about Lawler's art skills? He's top notch. This was his way into the business, he would draw the wrestlers I think and send in the work, then I think one day they let him be on tv (he was late teens probably) and the rest is history. He used to do all those cartoons in WWF magazines. When he was feuding with Bret they were both doing cartoons shitting on each other I think and Bret was pretty good too.

    Savage reruns this coming weekend. Missed it too. Had the times fucked up and missed it. Piper and Andre's were great. Think they had an Austin one too, was busy at the time and missed it.

    You can use the A&E app and watch it on demand. That's what I do using my parents cable info. I didn't know there was an Andre one, I'll have to watch that. Austin one was okay but likely doesn't have much you didn't already know. I never really thought about him having kids so that part was interesting but didn't get very in depth. I also hoped they would get more into where the line was between Stone Cold the character and Steve the man after the intro made it seem like something they would explore but they didn't really.

    I liked the Andre one, but the Piper one was much more interesting to me. I'll check out the app and catch up on what I'd missed, thanks.
    From what you described I'm probably enjoying "Straight Up Steve Austin" more than I would the bio.

    They only have 2 hours to cram in the careers of people who you could do 4 seasons 20 eps each about them.

    We also have to remember this isn't catering to the die hard wrestling fan. I know they skipped quite a bit with Piper, but this isn't a WWE documentary. They've already released 1 or 2 of those at least about each one of these wrestlers.

    I was blown away at how much footage they had of Piper's home life. I remember watching him do the wife swap show, that was probably the first time I ever saw Roddy Piper as a normal dude. Seeing this footage was awesome.
