    All this forum talk makes me wonder how many wrestlers started out as posters before becoming wrestlers? Fuck I've been here that long that I still remember Silverback Ryan Reeves (aka Ryback) on here campaigning for Tough Enough votes and Vice banning him.

    Main page is reporting Melzer saying the fine is real, but Lars will be allowed to pay it off in installments over time.

    Since sponsors were calling on WWE to do something, they had to.

    If true then installments = dock a large chunk of his salary over a long period of time. That's sweet of them.

    I heard one of the sponsors wanted Lars to come visit him at the White House.

    Not being a regular watcher of NXT, the whole situation makes me wonder - is this guy worth the hassle? Sure, he's big, and has an imposing look that they are playing up, but can he even go in the ring? The backstage "interview" segment this week, where he just roars, makes me think the WWE is hiding the fact that he can't talk, either.

    If he doesn't think that Daniel Bryan is anything special, have DB confront Lars, and let Lars take him out. This will lead to the match we all don't want to see but will probably get anyway because Vince loves the big hoss matches - Rowan vs. Lars to main event SummerSlam

    Blasphemy. Lars Sullivan is the best in ring performer since Shawn Michaels.

    He's pretty good on the mic but it's almost purely visual for Lars. Which isn't a bad thing. The WWE doesn't need just a bunch of crossfit dudes prancing around doing topes.

    The way that last part read makes me think you haven't watched WWE in probably 30 years. Rowan v. Lars to main event Summerslam? Where are you getting that? Vince likes big dudes, but look @ the 2 world champions. Dude, look @ the last 6 champions on Smackdown, it's a mixed bag. Bray, Orton, Jinder, AJ Styles, Daniel Bryan, Kofi Kingston. Shit even Raw, you had Finn Balor, Kevin Owens, Goldberg, Lesnar, Roman, and Seth Rollins all hold the belt in the last couple years.

    Is Lars worth the hassle? I guess that depends on how you view the situation. Do you believe once a "racist" always a racist? Or do you believe that people can change and unless you can prove they are still that same person, who are we to judge? I wouldn't judge you on something you posted on a message board 7 years ago.

    The fact that you post a lot of things implying that something is possibly racist when it clearly isn't has made me question why you are so adamant about shunning people who say things that might be truly racist bullshit. You expect us to give you the benefit of the doubt and you're a lot older than Lars Sullivan. Don't hold him to a higher standard just because he's on t.v., that's the biggest problem we have in the West. THey're on t.v. they must be held to a higher standard. Why? If you or your kids are that easily influenced by what someone on t.v. posted on a message board 7 years ago then that says more about you than it does Lars and the WWE.

    I just heard that the reason Luke Harper is being kept off t.v. is that it was recently discovered he is a Washington Redskins fan. How dare he support a team with that kind of name! I also heard he criticized the way Orton sold a DDT against Cena years ago. WWE are still trying to figure out which offense is worse lol

    In other news, women are better at stuff than men.

    I heard WWE have put Noam Dar on a losing streak because he's a Rangers fan. Too fuckin right!

    Noam Dars-Sullivan would probably be his name if they got married!

    How many racist jibes did the almighty HHH make to Booker T in 2003? He could wipe his arse with 100K though.

    Probably the same amount Tarantino was fined for using it 20 times in Pulp Fiction talking about his custom storage unit.

    If Lars got a good lawyer to contest the fine and they pulled up all the racist/homophobic shit WWE has pulled over the years which is much easier to find than message boards, they'd shit their pants.

    lol that would be hilarious. All you have to do is listen to Jesse the Body's commentary from the 80's and anyone who feuded with Goldust and you have enough to get the WWE to pay Lars 100k just to keep saying the shit he said years ago.

    What about all those racist gimmicks, like Chief Jay Strongbow who was white, Saba Simba what the fuck and the African Dream Akeem. Roddy Piper half black body, Kai En Tai, Virgil, it's endless.

    That Titus Tweet was the funniest godamn thing I've seen in forever.

    "I, black man Titus ONeil, forgive, good man friend buddy Lars Sullivan, for the wonderful Vince McMahon. Not enough good happy true strong things can be said about Vince McMahon and how not racist he is. He is the most not racist. Lars and Vince are both not racist. Titus is black and not racist. Lars and Vince and Titus all the same. All not racist."

    Since Mark Henry and Booker T are retired, and Big E is on the shelf, and they don't dare have the champ Kofi get mixed up in this, it looks like our man Titus is the WWE resident black spokesperson.

    It seems that Mars confectionery - makers of Snickers et al - was among the sponsors that pressured WWE to address this -

    We learned of Lars Sullivan’s comments recently and share in your shock and disgust. As a values-based company, we find his behavior abhorrent and unacceptable. We have engaged the WWE to discuss this situation and seek to understand what actions they will take to swiftly address this matter.”


    The headline should therefore be - Lars' Scars Jars Mars Bars


    It also sounds like Kalisto deleted his post suggesting that Lars keep out of his way - he's a LATINO

    WWE has to be hoping for something else to come along to divert attention from this.

    Kalisto would get fucking slapped like a bitch if he stepped to Lars.

    This shit is so out of sight out of mind for many fans that I don't think it's as big of a deal to where the WWE are hoping something else comes along to "divert attention". This isn't national news, it was for about a minute and then it passed.

    The fact that we are even sweating this situation on the level that we are in this thread alone is disturbing to me. We don't need to literally crucify everyone who maybe doesn't think all white people are great or that all black people are great. Actions speak louder than words, except in this day and age where words became sticks and stones overnight.

    Until I see Lars Sullivan post up a Nazi flag in his front yard and guess this answer incorrectly:



    Then I see no reason to keep going on and on about it.

    How about we dig up John Cena promos from his debut as a rapper to the Rock feud? I'm sure our gay and lesbian friends would love to recite some of his epic battle rap promos.

    Personally I think this thread's been amazing tonight.

    Nascars Sullivan is Sparky Plugg's father's, brother's, cousin's former roommate.

    WWE just sent out a tweet saying that Lars P Sullivan has not only been fined, but his gimmick of a monster has been altered completely:

    No mention of Gwar Sullivan. 1999 called in and Vince wants a guy to spray blood at the audience during his entrance. He's the guy, make it happen.

    People do make mistakes, you're right Titus, like tripping on the way to the ring.

    Titus O'Neill, still employed by WWE even though he's a talentless hack. I guess his good will ambassador schtick is helping him stay on.

    People laugh about Titus Worldslide and rightfulky so, but remember where he randomly grabbed Vince after Bryan'scretirement speech. Vince was pissed at him!

    Why does Titus 'O Neil tweet like a guy with a gun to his head whose first language obviously isn't English?

    1. How on earth can you fine an "independent contractor" for something that happened 7 years before you hired him. That just means you didn't do your homework. If you discovered this during the interview process, you wouldn't have hired him, or addressed it before the hire. So because the WWE didn't check this guy's character, now he gets fined $100,000?

    Look the guy sounds like he might be a piece of shit, but this is incredible hypocrisy on the WWE's part. I'm currently watching Superstars from 1992 and something racist happens every episode. This has happened in the last two shows I've watched

    1. Repo Man put a noose around a black jobber's neck and dragged him around the ring after the match, while Mr. Perfect says "McMahon it's a new kind of dog collar."
    2. Mr. Perfect says of Tatanka, "It's just like an Indian to attack you from behind."
    3. Mr. Perfect says of Koko B. Ware: "You know why he's been gone the past few months? He was playing Buckwheat in the Little Rascals movie."

    Is the fine rational?

    Shouldn't he be forced to do the sensitivity classes - and shouldn't their HR team do a better job screening people (and maybe fine/fire/reprimand the morons who didn't do their due diligence hiring him)? If some idiot on a keyboard can go through his posting history, why can't people paid to do this run a search instead? Surely there's even software to do this.

    And in the midst of all this I feel the decision to fine is half-hearted, but also that this is a no-win situation any other way.... other than a supposedly reformed bigot no longer getting to live his dream of being a wrestler and being sacked on the spot.

    I have no bloody idea if what I posted makes sense. It's been a long year.

    The heavy fine is a knee-jerk reaction to appease their critics, sponsors and shareholders when they thought this would just go away easily in a few days but didn't.

    FYI: Titus was on E&C's pod and went into some detail of his conversation with Lars.

    What does this guy do that Braun/Drew can’t do better? I’d even take Rowan over this nutsack.

    Edit: Am I the only one who sees the irony in the Trump-supporting McMahon family clutching their pearls here? What Lars said back in the day was obviously stupid and deserves punishment, I don’t condone it in any stretch of the imagination, but that family pretending to have morals only because it might hurt their money is fucking laughable.

    The first is odd. That's like looking at 90% of the roster who's style is almost identical to Seth Rollins and asking what's the point of them being in the WWE....The WWE need more than just dudes who are 6' and dive through the ropes 100 times.

    It's not the family "pretending to have morals" (and trust me, NOT supporting Trump doesn't mean you're the moral police *Antifa*) It's the company needing to do what any other company would do. I'm not exactly in agreement with the fine but anyone who can't comprehend the reason behind this needs to stop pretending like their life is morally superior.

    I’d rather have that.

    Lars is a big guy who beats people up and yells like an animal, wake me up when he can put together a ten minute match or talk coherently. Last week (two weeks ago?) he burst into Vince’s “office” just to glare at him bug eyed like a fucking neanderthal. Who gives a shit...

    He has a ***** match under his belt. Can Braun Strowman say that? I don't think so.

    Patience not in your vocab?

    Have you ever seen any match of his in NXT? The dude can work but if you're simply into the Seth Rollins type matches, then I can see why he's not your cup of tea. Ring of Honor might be more your speed where everyone but Dalton Castle wrestles the exact same no-sell high flying style that has made people tune out of wrestling in droves.

    I like a mixed bag.
