    News stories

    What's with the constant stories on people having kids?

    I know someone who has had infertility issues who really gets triggered by these.

    People in general are interested when celebrities, athletes, wrestlers, etc. have kids. Hard to get away from stories like that depending on what sites you are on. If there is constant stories then lots of people are having kids. Hard to avoid stuff like that.

    Not really to do with wrestling is it? I don't recall people posting about the Rock or Austin's kids when the internet was huge already.

    People will read it on TMZ or whatever, it doesn't need to be here.

    People are interested in wrestlers' personal lives so yeah posting news of marriages, kids being born, etc are going to be on this site. And honestly I read through this site all the time and others and yeah news of kids is not that constant unless there is just a ton of wresters having kids all at once.

    I'm enjoying that we get a bit of insight into their lives.

    It's also a very different time. The male wrestlers can hide it. The ladies really can't so it becomes a bigger story with Alexa, Becky, Carmella, etc.

    Just have the person not read the main page if it's that important?

    It's also a different time than the late 90s/early 2000s. People, including male performers, are much more likely to take extended leaves around the birth of their children. It's acknowledged on social media, and people reference it on television. It's a lot more public than it was previously.


    My oldest/closest friend struggle with infertility. They took 19 years and multiple attempts at artificial insem/etc before they could have a kid. I know that some things were really challenging for them to see and hear about other folks. Not that they weren't happy for them, but it was painful.



    But in the information world we live in today, and given the regular impact and referencing, probably not reasonable to expect a site to isolate birth references specifically.

    I dunno, seems to have been a big uptick on it recently. I don't just put that down to more wrestlers having kids, more that the news coverage seems to focus more on it.

    How can they do that if they want to read about wrestling?

    Ok, well I disagree but fair enough.

    It's everywhere on the internet though.

    Do they avoid X and Instagram then?

    The birth of one of their kids while having been out for several months is a news story the same as someone being out for a specific injury. It seems a bit ridiculous to have us be the only wrestling site to not report on these news stories.

    Semi serious question here Romford old chap……. If news of other people, that they don’t know, giving birth is a triggering issue as you say, what happens when friends and family in the real world do the same?

    Fucking hell Caito. I came in and raised something in a respectful way but yeah...

    On your question, the person concerned avoids pregnant women and people with young children wherever possible. Not a great long term strategy and she is having therapy for it, but unfortunately it triggers some trauma there for reasons I'm not going to go into.

    My wife and I had some issues conceiving. It wicked when we’d find out a close friend or family member was pregnant. Didn’t really care if some stranger or celebrity or athlete was having a baby. The hardest thing to deal with was when people would complain about their kids or say something stupid like “oh you got to sleep in because you don’t have kids? I’m jealous.”

    I donít see what the issue or big surprise is. Main page has been doing personal as well as wrestling news sites, not always to the best quality mind you, but stuff like this has been around for years now.

    Weíre in the age of social media now, shit like this is everywhere anyway.

    I mean I'm guessing they could just not click the corresponding links, Or if they were really that upset they could ask a friend to make a whole ass thread out of a nothingness.

    I mean, its a bit more serious than freaking out if people use your name isn't it, but moving on.

    It’s on the person getting upset to avoid what upsets them. It sucks but it is what it is. They need to decide which is worse: hearing about pregnant people or missing wrestling news.

    Case in point, my wife hates on-screen depictions of SA. So we avoid shows or movies that have graphic depictions of SA. Yeah it might suck if we miss out on a TV show they everyone is watching but it’s the lesser of two evils.

    I don't think Romford is familiar with being triggered to be fair, I mean he wouldn't be a married ass man with statuses on a wrestling forum mocking someone with mental helath issues still living at home and then cry mental health himself every chance for example.

    Oh fuck off you plonker.

    You are the biggest hypocrite in the history in this site. You have mocked mental health multiple times, told people to kill themselves, racially abused children, someone's alcoholism and divorce. Genuine scumbag who should have been permabanned years ago. Melt.

    Of course it's mind boggling to you.

    Most good news sites have drop downs for you to choose what to read. No reason here shouldn't be any different.

    Because it's a wrestling site, not a news site. It's existed this long this way, I think it's okay.

    And again, you can choose not to read an article if a headline triggers you.

    There's nothing to improve. Don't read the article if it's going to make you pee your pants with anger.

    Realistically, anything with the main site is just us shooting the shit about it.

    None of us here actually have anything to do with it, or any say at all. They've probably been completely separate since the days of Cewsh

    So, what’s the plan/suggestion you are going for here exactly?

    Wasn’t worried about it. More curious.



    For all we know, you’re gonna try to convince him to shut the whole site down so that no one can read about the pregnancies of wrestlers.

    You sound worried. Clearly you aren't the decision makers here, so I will speak to to those who are.

    I mean…… you’ve been here for an AWFULLY long time.



    Are you only now realizing we didn’t have that kind of decision making over that stuff?

    Unless you tag Rajah he is not always around and reading things on here and even tagging him doesn't always mean he will see it so easier to just email him and go from there. So not sure why you are all at me. You act like you haven't posted here for like years.

    You may want to reach out to other sites too. I just checked a handful of websites and they didn't separate those things either.

    Not really. I came in with a question in good faith here. I expected the usual bottom feeders to come out from under their rocks, but a couple of the mods haven't engaged in good faith, which is a shame. I guess par for the course for a dying forum with 20 active members.

    All I’m gonna say further on this similar to what MTR said, with things like article content you probably should have gone direct to Raj himself as the mods (correct me if wrong here) don’t control the content.

    Nothing will be done. I am not aware of any news site that allows for stories to be filtered out by pregnancy as a topic, and there would not be a blanket ban on news aggregation ruling out pregnancy or birth conversations.

    We've been around for a while. Right now, GUNTHER taking time off for the birth of his child is relevant to the goings on of WWE. There have been births relevant to the goings on of WWE every year recently. If Rajah were to ignore these, it would actually be a worse site for the majority of users.

    Someone can ask whatever. I personally don't think you start bugging people on a site that is mostly kept alive out of goodwill, but people can do their thing.

    Just asking for something that has never been done, and would be detrimental to the overall site's purpose it not a reasonable accommodation.

    Being able to filter by wrestling, social media etc would actually make it happen.

    Most posts aggregate a couple of stories together. And if the post is about why Gunther isn't on RAW, Lacey dropped her Flair storyline, Becky giving the title to Asuka, Becky returning, Bianca talking about her future in the business, Hangman being absent when CM Punk debuted, Ronda leaving, Ronda returning, Seth taking time off, Sammy G taking time off and then returning, Sammy G's current feud, Tay Melo, Johnny Wrestling and Candace taking time off and returning, Kofi taking, Ethan Page taking....it goes on.

    These are all relevant to wrestling storylines, people wondering where wrestlers are, and the information is publicly accessible.

    Pulling just off social media related storylines would then also filter out any wrestling interactions on social media, including storylines. And basically all of Tony Khan's existence.


    It doesn't seem like a workable solution to anything.

    I think your friend is the problem, not the news articles. Perhaps therapy is needed if being triggered by articles about people having babies is such an issue.

    Okay so you’re asking the good owner of our site a needless request and probably lots of IT work and money when as my consultant pointed out he is keeping this site alive out of the pure goodness of his heart aware of the lack of activity purely because…you can’t be bothered to scroll through articles about proud wrestling mamas and papas giving birth to their offspring which as my consultant again pointed out in GUNTHER’s case especially is relevant to the world of wrestling as he’ll be off for a bit.

    Just wanted to make sure I understand correctly.

    Do you go on a football site and read about their kids? No its all articles about the actual sport. Likewise, under wrestling you could have results and articles actually linked to the wrestlers.

    That isn't how I would phrase it. Putting a filter on where you can choose what you see/read shouldn't be an issue. Go to BBC, and you will see stuff split by Business/Sport etc.

    Love you how you say ďIsnít what I would phrase it.Ē Was exactly what I was talking about, course I know what you meant by filtering.

    Filtering like social media channels and big news sites like BBC, ITV, Skybetc provide national, global news etc so the populace in that instance do have to filter through as thereís sooo many topics like news, weather, sport, finance etc.

    Youíre being a wee bit naive here placing those kinda expectations when the range of topics compared to national news sites are less of a niche market compared to here. Weíve been around for a while but thereís loads of our types of sites everywhere and Raj himself even questioned in the Asylum at one point it it was worth keeping around and the hardy souls around here said yes and heís keeping it around even if lower activity than before. Quality > quantity.

    We are much smaller in a competitive markets than those kinda sites, there is less of a need to filter through and it will cost him and the site more time and money to fix over wellÖyou know wholesome stories that fans might find interesting about wrestlers lives wanting to spend time when you know you could just much more easily just scroll past.

    Hell Iím looking at the first few pages on the non-forum frontline right now and itís just show/taping results, wrestlers appearances on shows, rumoured debuts etc. Pretty standard wrestling stuff.

    This is a very, very weird hill youíre choosing to die on when itís worked the same way the same 20 years and the owner has even reached out to us. The child stories arenít even that copious!

    Wait you are happy about the fact you have 84 replies rather than what those replies actually say? Is this all just an attention grab? Please say it ain’t so!

    Matthew and PG aside…why are you cheering 84 replies when many of those have given plenty logical replies to your query even without going to Rajah?

    I hate to be the bearer of bad news but seems like you are deflecting and happy at the traffic and not looking deeper into the points raised by these good posters and mods. Hell I even question if this thread should still be open since you said you were going to Raj himself.

    I also ask a more burning question…if this site gives you so much pain and you butt heads with so many of our good people and are even questioning the news content….why are you still here? I’m genuinely not being a dick with this last sentence but you do seem to cause so much aggro for yourself when you clearly don’t like this site. You are free to go elsewhere.

    Nope, I am laughing as even though this has been resolved, the usual suspects are piling in. Clearly got nothing else to do.

    Why should I leave? I enjoy the wrestling forums even if the sports one has died - I'm certainly not going to let a couple of twats and a couple of dodgy mods run me off.

    I have responded to almost every single point that has been raised. This isn't a court of law, people can have different opinions.

    I am so disappointed in this response but I work in customer service so will try one more time. I never specifically said you should lave but please read between the lines here sir.

    My whole point was not in how many times you have responded to each and every one, yay for you I guess. Are you actually READING what has been said in the responses to you? You have even admitted to @MTR you should have gone to Rajah himself yet seemingly instead of doing that, you are lolcatting the fact so many have replied when really we are all lolcatting you because you keep this going! Hell the mods realistically could have closed this thread down because even by your own admission you’re going to Raj yet you still engage rather than seeking and giving asking to your question to Rajah. Wish you the best of luck in that by the way…keep us updated!!

    Any publicity is good publicity right Piers?[/Hislop]

    I was more than happy to move on a while ago (in fact see my posts), not my issue if melts want to keep piling on.

    Mods - please close the thread. In fact, delete it for all I care.

    Well why did you not move on after MTR told you what to do? Other people can have opinions and disagree too but yet you still continue to reply to EVERYTHING valid or not?

    But yeah mods do this please.
