    This seemed as good a place as any to post this. Everyone's talking about the comments Ronda made on the Steve-O show. Here's an excerpt courtesy of Yahoo Sports for anyone who doesn't know.

    "What am I doing it for if I'm not being able to spend my time and energy on my family, but instead spending my time and my energy on a bunch of f--king ungrateful fans that don't even appreciate me?"

    "The thing is, I love performing. I love the girls. I love being out there. But, at the end of the day, I was just like, 'f--k these fans, dude.' My family loves me. They appreciate me. I want all of my energy to go into them."
    Allot of people are pissed, while a bunch of others thinks she's "clearly" setting up a heel turn. I don't know, just sounds like Ronda being Ronda to me. First she calls wrestling fake and now this.

    She was already working heel before she left. I agree it just sounds like Ronda being Ronda. I'm all for wrestlers finding happiness outside of the ring. It's a crazy business.

    I don't know why Ronda is getting on at the fans. I mean she was over! Also when she first showed up, they loved it.

    I didn't like Ronda Rousey but then again I don't really like any of the women except Dana Brooke.

    I'm usually good aunderstanding Donaldish, but the Dana Brooke thing is still a mystery lol.

    What is about her that you like above all the other women?

    Think she's great. Untapped potential. Was sad she was taken out of the women's match at Mania, but hopefully that she and Carmella will go far in the tag division.

    Potential can only get you so far. She's been around a while now but there are many better options now that there's three equal brands.

    She's improved but doesn't do anything to stand out.

    She's a small fish in a pretty big pond. Personally I can't see it happening.

    I've seen some improvement but she still looks like she's something thinking of what they're doing versus just doing it. That makes her look a step slow. If you compare her to someone like Lacey, she's going to be overshadowed because Lacey has improved and they've invested in a character/personality for her. They haven't really tried in a convincing manner with Dana in terms of a character. There's been flashes of ideas but nothing, again, convincing.

    The moment they bring more than two or three women from NXT onto Smackdown and she's just going to be DOA.

    Agree with that.

    There's a big glass ceiling as it is and this would fuck her.

    She's the new Alicia Fox. Her matches are so short you can't even use the Stevie Richards/George South/Barry Horriblewitz (10 points for the one who can tell me who said coined that gem) argument where these wrestlers are at least making someone look good.

    Dana Brooke comes out, flips, flexes, and then gets pinned within 2 minutes. And most of us are of the age that grew up in our 20's watching the half and half which was talented performers that were technical or at least had a gimmick to make up for it. Talent like Mickie James, Trish, Victoria, Jazz, Beth Phoenix, LayCool, Lita, etc. And you'd have Candice Michelle, Christy Hemme, Maria, Alicia Fox lol....They couldn't work. Looked great, couldn't wrestle. It'd be like if the WWF tried to push Sunny against Alundra Blayze and Bull Nakano. She would get FUCKED UP. Heroin and HBK would be the least of her pain.

    The fact they just signed her for another 5 years is fucked up. I'm sorry but it really is. For me she's in the same boat as Titus. You could possibly toss Eric Young in there as well. But at least he can work and make someone look good BUT this isn't 1984 and he's making 100x more than a traditional job guy would.

    Plus the wave of talent coming through in 2020 is going to make people like Dana completely irrelevant and in turn will fuck the momentum of someone coming up that will be stuck on Main Event for the 5 weeks doing 50/50 matches.

    When Braun Strowman is doing "Gets these vaccinations" PSAs, you will all be less skeptical.



    Actually WWE PSAs would be fantastic

    Personally I’d prefer Braun to organise a campaign where he hires vehicles to get crowding people off the streets.

    If, say the Orlando Magic wanted to face the Miamia Heat in an empty arena, would they be able to do that? I'm hoping those two are still teams otherwise I'll look foolish.

    If live wrestling is classified as an "essential business" in Florida, as long as its not performed in front of a live audience, then what about TV shows? Movies? Porno?

    Those are all shot on a similar setup - A closed set, small number of people, no live audience.

    Why should pro-wrestling (and UFC) be allowed to run and not any other form of entertainment that doesn't require a live audience?

    Worked shoot. This is exactly what she did when she turned heel during her run, trashed the biz as fake and the fans as ungrateful, and had the wrestlers rallying to defend it/them. The fact that she's doing it again, and it was actually referenced on RAW yesterday, leads me to think she'll be back sooner than later. Reckon we'll see her coming to help Baszler against Becky and/or go after Becky herself.

    Agreed. It was very similar to her turn. The best heels typically have an element of truth when they speak.

    So WWE was deemed an 'essential business' following an $18.5m donation from Linda Mcmahon to Donald Trumps re-election campaign. Not dodgy at all.

    I actually wouldn't mind if after Becky went Mania to Mania as champion, Ronda came back and took the title from her. Though, it would make Shayna look absolutely second rate if it happened immediately.

    I'd much rather see them build up someone else to take the title off Becky than put it back on Ronda. They just focus on the same handful of women over and over. I would have liked to see Ruby Riott in the MITB match. Asuka held the tag titles for a long time and was in some high profile feuds. I think she can step aside for one match instead of continually jobbing out Ruby.

    The thing is, Asuka is really embracing her character, and she is miles ahead of most of the other contenders on the roster. I loved how she was dancing while waiting for her opponent to enter the ring. Normally, I could do without the screaming as so many women overdo that, but in her case, I think it works.

    She's easily been one of the most adaptable performers (regardless of gender or role in the company) since they went to the PC.

    Business update from WWE. They are...
    -Reducing executive and board member compensation;
    -Decreasing operating expenses;
    -Cutting talent expenses, third party staffing and consulting;
    -Deferring spend on the build-out of the Company’s new headquarters for at least six months.

    Basically, they will be cutting the talent roster/overall head count of employees. Some may go on furlough.


    WWE said the changes will save them $4 million a month and give them a cash flow improvement of $140 million, mainly from the deferral in spending on their new offices. They said they have approximately $500 million in cash and debt capacity to help them manage through the crisis.

    The idea of the taping schedule for WWE remains a moving target, meaning it has reportedly changed again.

    PWInsider is now reporting that the next week of tapings (Raw, NXT, SD) will all be live and then will move into pretaping episodes every other week. That means they will tape an episode to air that week and then for the following week. Who knows if it will actually stay that way.

    Pro Wrestling Sheet has an updated timeline that actually changes the schedule somewhat in terms of when things will specifically be taped:


    • SmackDown will air this evening live as scheduled on FOX
    • Raw will air on Monday live as scheduled on USA Network


    • NXT will air on Wednesday live as scheduled
    • Next Friday, SmackDown will air live as scheduled




    • Saturday, April 25; two episodes of SmackDown will be taped (airing May 1 and May 8)
    • Monday, April 27; two episodes of Raw will be taped (one for that night and the other will air the following week on May 4)
    • Wednesday, April 29; two episodes of NXT will be taped (one is for that night, the other will air on May 6)



    • Monday, May 11; one episode of Raw will be taped for that night and one episode of SmackDown will be taped for May 15

    Well that sounds fun I must admit...

    More likely, they realized it didn't make any sense whatsoever to fly talent in for one day's work, when there are no house shows. Get a couple shows worth in the can and talent doesn't have to work that grueling travel schedule.

    You’re right, Rumble needs to be a more wintry venue.

    Since he’s on good terms with them again, Bret Hart’s back garden in a snow ring.

    I'd take a show up in the winters of Canada. Wear some snow gear.

    SummerSlam in Vince's backyard. Biggest party of the summer. Put Bruce and Pat watching by the pool. It'd be great.

    They need to use a taped explanation of the rules for the Rumble every year, with Fink’s old intro. That would be a classy way to honor him.

    Well, now we have an explanation for why Kevin Owens has not been on TV since Mania: he's injured his ankle and has also opted to stay home with his family.

    So that makes Seth getting the title shot make a bit more sense.

    Reportedly at the behest of the networks, WWE will introduce a ruling that will allow for some crossover of talent between Raw and Smackdown. They will also address the status of the IC title this week. Becky reportedly has a "huge" announcement to make on Raw tonight.

    As long as it's not that wild card shit again lol.

    They should have freebirded the IC title. Cesaro and Shinsuke could have defended it in his absence.

    They should combine the rosters completely while this is the situation. There's literally no reason not to.

    I might be in the minority here, but I'm still pro-roster split.


    Given the amount of time they have each week, I like the mix of who is profiled. There can be less redundancy, and I find some people don't get stale as quick. On the positive side, there's enough people i enjoy on both brands that I rarely feel deprived if someone is only on one show a week.

    From a business sense, it doesn't look like individuals are driving ratings, so I'm not sure how ending the split solves those issues.

    Ooh that reminds me, think I started a Becky Lynch thread a while back about who would end her reign. If this is true, then I guess Seth's penis wins.

    Zayn is "unable to compete" so WWE has declared the title vacant. A tournament to crown a new champ will begin on Friday.

    "Unable to compete" at this point could mean he's injured, he's stuck at home and has to quarantine, somebody close to him has Covid-19. Hell, he could even have it.

    I'm interested to find out why he can't wrestle.

    Isn't Sami Zayn from Canada? Maybe they won't let him cross the border with the Chinavirus going on.

    Zayn's not injured. He took the option to stay home like Roman which means he won't be back anytime soon.

    I don't like Sami Zayn so good, stay home for as long as you want to.

    Why didn't he just drop the title to Bryan at WrestleMania.

    Did Sami just wake up one day and say "Nah, I don't want to do this anymore" I don't even think he's been seen since WrestleMania.

    The sense behind a roster split is creating two unique touring brands and being able to create more new stars (which they don't succeed with, but I digress). With no tours and indeed no crowds, the benefits are obsolete. So why not just relax it? I don't see it improving ratings, but I do think people that watch Raw will enjoy it more if Daniel Bryan and The New Day are on, and likewise Smackdown with Edge, Randy Orton and Asuka.

    The truth is, even die hards are having trouble soaking up the pro wrestling entertainment. Those who are still watching consistently, God bless you because I just find it hard to really get into it without the crowd. Even AEW's stuff with the handful of talent on the outside doesn't do much. Yes the ratings for Raw/SD were already going down but it's apparent that WWE hasn't figured out that, IMHO, the way to keep people interested is to stop trying to do all these talking segments and just do 80% wrestling.

    When there's no reaction to anything you're saying, it takes away from the show. It's already hard to watch a bunch of empty arena matches that are WWE's style of wrestling. If they would just let these guys/gals tear it down every week it might help. It also doesn't help a lot of the talent just isn't that interesting so it's even worse now.

    Fans mean more to wrestling than I think even we the fans ourselves truly realized. Without them.....It's like having a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, but using your hands as the bread.

    I think you're still upset about Sami taking Braun's IC title from him at elimination chamber.

    I like Sami, I think he's a terrific performer and he's really gifted on the mic, especially in front of a live crowd. Even though I don't like how he's been booked (as I recall, he's only had this brief IC title run in his 4-5 years on the main roster) to lose far more often, I don't think his shtick where he antagonizes the audience, works at all in an empty arena. I think he understands this, and its one of the many tragedies of this epidemic.

    I think they should have freebirded the IC title initially but regardless they gave the talent the right to come to work or not so Sami is just exercising his right so he can’t be blamed. He didn’t screw them over, he did what he feels was the right thing for his family. They maybe didn’t anticipate that he’d do this with Mania so far taped in advance and perhaps had other plans for the him and the title so decided to keep it on him at Mania.

    At the same time though, WWE needed to get on with getting the title defended and we don’t have a timetable yet of when crowds can come back so they’ve taken a standard but probably the most sensible and straightforward option with the tournament. Whenever crowds do come back they can have Sami challenge again and say he got screwed for doing the right thing. Plays into his whiny heel shtick who tells a bit of truth.

    I, too, figured they would freebird the IC title.

    Hopefully there's a tournament and Drew Gulak gets the title.

    It'll be interesting to see who is in the tournament especially if both brands, if not all 3, could participate. I have a feeling it's going to come down to Corbin v. Elias with Corbin getting a super long IC title run........

    Brock disappears for months at a time while holding the World title, but that's totally fine. Sami's gone for a couple weeks in storyline and suddenly something has to be done about the IC title. I love the hypocrisy.

    I think Sami will come back eventually with his I-C title and feud with the person claiming to be champion ala Shawn/Razor in 94.

    That's exactly what's happening with the CW Title as Devlin isn't being stripped of it, the tourny is for an interim champ and he is clearly going to face that winner to determine the true champ whenever he can come back. I think Sami's actually being stripped of the IC Title, though, so whenever he comes back, I guess he'd just be claiming since he never lost it, he deserves a shot at the new champ (which I think he already said on Twitter).

    Or Sami comes back in a few months and the IC Title is never mentioned again.

    It'll also play into his gimmick as a liberator if they lean into it. We're going to find out more when/if he actually comes back. If this was all a storyline or plot device to move things along, WWE is respecting Zayn's wishes and actually being sincere with their suggestion that people could stay at home during this time. If he's just booked into oblivion, there's possibly ill will in regards to Zayn both prior to the pandemic and during it.

    Very true. Devlin wasn't stripped though, so that's why I liken this Sami situation more to Shawn/Razor than to Devlin. They announced it as a tourney to crown a interim CW champion with Devlin clearly returning to a match with his place holder when Devlin returns. Whoever wins the I-C title isn't going to be called the interim I-C champion and that leads to Sami's gripe. Little differences. I hope that Sami gets this chance and this ready made angle isn't swept under the rug because there is a similar situation with the CW title.

    What is about her that you like above all the other women?
    If you ignore the fact her face looks like a Real Doll crossed with Bridgette B, she's kinda hot? She does a good cartwheel? She's got nice boobs? That workout video WWE put out a few years ago of her working out in little spandex tights was hot? He feels sorry for her because her boyfriend choked to death alone in their apartment?

    Just read about Shad. Awful to hear. Sounds like he got his ten year old out just in time though.

    It would be awesome if he was found alive somewhere but it doesn't look good. You would have heard by now if he was alive.

    Maybe on some island, Cast Away or Lord of the Flies style. Find him in a year or two with a massive beard.

    Glad to hear his son was rescued but it's definitely looking doubtful for Shad. Super tragic.

    EDIT: Just read that the search has ended.

    I got mad love and respect for the dude. He told the people to help his boy instead of him. God bless the guy. I hope he was saved.

    Half of crime time is MIA

    CNN)Former WWE Superstar Shad Gaspard is missing after visiting a newly reopened California beach, his family says.

    Gaspard, 39, was last seen at Marina Del Rey Beach in Venice Beach, his wife, Siliana Gaspard, said on her Instagram account. "If you've seen him please call 911 or Dm family," she wrote. The same message appeared on the wrestler's Instagram. One of the photos showed Gaspard in a swimsuit standing on a beach.
    While not naming Gaspard, authorities in Los Angeles County told CNN they are actively searching for a swimmer after he was pulled out to sea by a rip current on Sunday afternoon.
    The US Coast Guard, Los Angeles County lifeguards and Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department are all looking for the swimmer, Trina Schrader, spokeswoman for the sheriff's department, said.
    "Weather permitting we'll look for him in the air," Schrader added. "We're using all resources to try to recover him as soon as possible."
    Pono Barnes, ocean lifeguard specialist with the Los Angeles County Fire Department, told CNN two swimmers were caught in a rip current, and one, a young boy, was rescued. The other, a black male in his 30s, "submerged." They continued their search until 7:30 p.m. and resumed it Monday morning, Barnes said.
    Neither Barnes nor Schrader confirmed that it was Gaspard who went missing. An email to Siliana Gaspard went unanswered Monday afternoon.
    Los Angeles County reopened its beaches last Wednesday for physical activities, which includes walking, running and swimming. The beach had been closed to combat the spread of the novel coronavirus.

    A Twitter account for the Los Angeles County Fire Department's Lifeguard Division said they performed 452 ocean rescues between Friday, May 15 and Sunday, May 17 -- marking "a busy weekend at the beach."
    Gaspard is best known for being a member of the wrestling team Cryme Tyme with fellow WWE star JTG, which debuted in 2006. After leaving WWE in 2010, he pursued an acting career and has appeared in films "Think Like a Man Too" and "The Last Sharknado: It's About Time," according to imdb.
    He is married and has a young son, aged 10

    This has to be terrible for his friends and family. This happened to one of my cousins a few years ago and it was an awful time. Having the hope that they'll show up only to accept the truth that they're gone. My feelings go out to his family. It's a damn shame.

    Happened to someone my brother knew years ago. Drowned in the local river and was only found weeks later 13 miles downstream.

    I don't go to the beach or ocean for reasons like this. I suppose there's danger in almost anything you do though.
