    You can't complain about being bullied or insulted when you have given as good (or worse) than you've already got though. Poor little victim.

    "If everyone jumped off a cliff would you? Yeah why not?"

    But really a few mocking comments about your posts yet you're the one dropping f and s-bombs yet you justify it yet you're the victim? How old are you? Man and grow up.

    The problem is you dismissed it in the worst way possible. You could have said "you know guys, after realizing the benefits mcmahon gets from being the owner of the company, I no longer think it is fair to compare him vs a wrestler. I seen he took a paycut but it's no longer the same to me due to stocks and other benefits."

    Instead of going that route you dismissed it off as though you didn't have your question answered by deflecting it off onto Triple h and steph, who have the same Corp jobs as Vince so why would they be any different from him if you are no longer comparing? So yeah, you did your typical absurd posting where you can't ever be wrong so I more or less wasted my time trying to have a discussion with you that you started. A discussion you are complaining about because it once again broke down into insults. Hmmm wonder why? It's not bullying.

    One last thing I'd like to point out is you seem by and large just hypocritical. You have constantly gotten on here saying so and so shouldn't comment on certain things because of their past behavior, yet you want a pass on your uncle Tom comments because you have grown and seen your mistakes. Plus that is all in the past. If you can't forgive others why in the world should others forgive you?

    Now for on topic stuff. I was unaware hacksaw Jim Duggan was still under a legends contract. I am not aware of who all are on them or what they are paid but you'd figure wwe would cut a few of those. I mean show and Henry would be better fits on those vs hacksaw. Nothing against him personally but he never really elevated above mid card vs 2 main eventers.

    I was slightly confused, when they signed with AEW, why they weren’t under Legends contracts. Simply to keep them in house and as ambassadors to the company. Not that I think whatever they do with AEW is gonna end up being monumental, especially over the long haul. However, still surprised they were “allowed” to go that way.

    You are the one who keeps bringing up something from years ago! When I come back with your history you run to the mods...

    It broke down into insults as you couldn't control yourself, that's where it started. I was interested to see if you had anything on HHH & Steph taking paycuts and couldn't provide it?

    So yeah that's why I mention bullying.

    On topic, looks like Strowman is taking his time to look at options according to reports. I wonder whether Japan might have some appeal for him - gotta be some monster heel money there.

    And I told you Triple h took one but why are you still separating them from vince? They get the same perks so they are different from the wrestlers according to your very own logic. Do you not see how utterly bizarre this is? Why would I want to post anything showing hhh or steph took a paycut when you are just going to dismiss it in a negative way? You seem to be a troll here.

    And rom, I have never run to the mods over you. In fact, as I have said and mods have said in public posts it is you that cries victim all the time. You just somehow can't wrap your mind around reality.
    @Caito I looked it up. A legends contact is as follows

    A 10k advance in future royalties
    A minimum off $500 per appearance.

    That doesn't seem worth it to me. I mean You are getting paid the royalties anyways for starters. People like flair, Austin, Hogan, etc., are obviously going to get way more than 500 and I'm going to assume all travel expenses are covered as if you only got 500 an airplane ticket alone would eat most, if not all that up. You'd definitely be losing money with airfare, transportation and boarding.

    Vince is the owner? Virm how many times have you run to the mods when someone has mentioned the *censored* incident? Many, many times so don't lie.

    First off, to Virm…


    Wow, that’s it? Really? Ok. Makes way more sense then. I had just kinda assumed it was like being on a smaller salary with potential for appearance bonuses and whatnot down the road.

    Second, to the rest of the “conversation”……. Enough of it has been had in here. If you wanna slag eachother off of their posting and past stuff that shouldn’t matter anymore as I would like to think we have all grown up and matured since said mistakes, (although, I seem to constantly be proven wrong of that assessment) take it to the Derailing argument thread.

    One last thing that I find funny and really friggin annoying btw….


    The people who bring up “oh you run to mods so many times” ……. I am gonna personally tell you that maybe that isn’t in your best interest, as I can see each time someone does and and who does it however many times. Something about glass houses…….


    Now I’m done.

    But rom. You decided Vince was different because he got stocks and all the other perks. Hhh and steph get the same perks. You can't keep separating things to fit your narrative. Multiple people have said this now.

    By your criteria that Vince doesn't count neither does hhh or steph.

    Should have just stuck to your first post. Not just posts reported, but posts where the mods have been tagged.

    If Braun is charging 5 figures for indie shows, does that mean I can contact him and ask him if he'd hang out with me for an evening for $25k (my credit card max)?

Then you just have Strowman dominate for a year until someone unexpected finally dethrones him.

    You could even have in storyline mode that Strowman really was released, and you blur the lines there. Would maybe make that $1.2 million a year worth it. Plus, when his deal ends you say no to 1.2 million resign or maybe you'll think he was of value and raise it. "By God Corey Graves, Strowman isn't even contracted by WWE and he won the title!"

    It's things like that, INTERESTING things that need to be done. Not the same cookie cutter shit we've been getting for the past 10-15 years.

    I saw this as wishful thinking, but I totally agree that a move like this could shake things up and be the sort of unexpected thing that kicks off another big wave.

    I have to believe that there's a lot more going on with Strowman - and we won't know for a while what's behind the real reasoning. I wonder how much of it has to do with him just not looking forward to going back on the road.

    Conrad is such a mark he paid Shane Douglas to come to his house and watch an ECW ppv from back in the day with him and his buddies lol.

    So instead of getting a stripper for the bachelor party he'd call up New Jack and have him stop by lol.

    I don't really see Japan clamoring for monsters unless I'm missing these beasts that are supposedly over there. People keep saying Japan Japan Japan but why? Serious question. I know it requires a little work on your part but you said there's gotta be some monster heel money there--well, where at? New Japan? DDT?

    Why has Vince McMahon declared a personal war on Donald?


    At this point, we're two weeks away from all Snitsky footage being removed from the network/peacock.

    Strowman was shocking but understandable as he's old for a pro wrestler and not going to ever be more than he was, but Tony Nese just makes no sense. This is a guy whoul could have carried the company on his back but they thought sticking him on a show no one watches was a better idea.

    I have a Tony Nese action figure, with silver pants. Went to the store another time and they had one of him in gold pants, but the wife was like you already have a Tony Nese figure, why do you need another one. For days like this. I need all the Nese I can.

    I honestly can't say I'm going to miss a single person other than Strowman that has been released. The WWE can't keep every single wrestler and to be honest, most of these cats like Fandango, Breeze, Neese, they were on the roster for so long and WWE never really did much with them. Guys like Breeze should have been let go 3-4 years ago.

    Duke is also green as hell.

    I could see Breeze getting an offer somewhere, but be may be content running his wrestling school as well if he can stay on.

    She'd already said motnhs ago that she was slowing down in the ring and focusing 100% on UUDD. I believe she has a contract specific for that, whereas Breeze was just a regular

    It’s all Donald’s fault because he liked them.

    I think he likes Omos at the moment so kinda worried for him.

    I don't know who Arturo Ruas or Curt Stallion are.

    Killian Dane added to the list.

    Hmmm. I didn’t realize Strowman was older than me.


    Honestly though, that’s the only thing about the cuts this year that has made me even blink.

    Lot of unused talent gone today, wow. Can't say I'll really miss any of them. Breeze is going to be just fine running his school though, godspeed to that dude.

    Shafir, eh.
    Nese, double eh. (sorry, Donald )
    Daivari, triple eh times ten.

    Ever Rise, they seemed cool and they seemed to be... on the rise. Bummer.
    Dane could have been a mega juggernaut, but they never seemed to want to let him cut loose.
    Fandango, I mean my frickin' God this guy had a long run w/ WWE.

    As for the writer chick... I can't say that I'm surprised considering she just proved how ridiculous WWE is when it comes to hiring folks they shouldn't be hiring. No experience in wrestling whatsoever, just a comedy writer w/ IMDB credits you can count on one hand and no restraint in pulling the curtain back. It's no wonder it feels like WWE is written by writers that don't know how to write wrestling, it's because they're not wrestling people. Why they need to hire comedy writers is beyond me. These are pro wrestlers, some of the most creative people you'll find in entertainment and they're hiring someone that wrote Allston Xmas in 2014. Awesome.

    What a shit show.

    My boy texted me and said “they fired 205 live” and I pulled up the roster to check. Holy shit, that whole show got nuked into the sun.

    Love those Bollywood boyz tho. I hope they go to IMPACT.

    Been a Breezango fan forever so bit sad about them going but at the same time, they've been around forever and basically peaked. Surprised about a few others like Daine because the team with Maverick still seemed to have legs and EverRise, who seemed to be on the rise and i was really getting on board with as of late. Ruas seemed like he had potential but he got that injury at a shit time and I guess that's that. My heart goes out to Donald for Nese but I have to be honest in saying I never saw much in the guy myself. Everybody else thus far, meh. Hopefully they hit the ground running.

    Nese could have been the new Shawn Michaels if they'd given the guy an actual chance.

The WWE can't keep every single wrestler and to be honest, most of these cats like Fandango, Breeze, Neese, they were on the roster for so long and WWE never really did much with them. Guys like Breeze should have been let go 3-4 years ago.
    Cowards, the lot of them

    Yes, but I'm hoping Nese is smart enough to not go to a company that won't be around in 5 years.

    So you’d go for Nese but not for Swagger?

    You have to understand that I like Jack Swagger, not Jake Hager. I like Braun Strowman, not Adam Scherr. Tony Nese will most likely be Tony Nese wherever he goes.

    You put Tony Khan in a Vince McMahon mask and he might bite.

    Tony khan and nick khan are the worst things to happen to the wrestling business.

    The rare occasion where having virtually no character to speak of actually pays off.

    The worst thing to happen to the business was cancelling the Superstar hotline. Especially with Todd still around, could’ve still taken those calls.

    The worst thing to happen to the buisness is Kevin Dunn.

    I always thought the Bollywood Boyz were the best part of Jinder's act.

    They both understood their role was to make Jinder look impressive in a good way. Which was tough, but they managed to do it. Due to their size, they made Jinder's physique look better just by them standing behind him. And their timing on their run-ins/interference was always executed perfectly.

    Jinder didn't seem to be able to put three moves together, though, and his matches became boring and repetitive. Can't fault the Bollywood boys for that. Then they get replaced by green indians who make Jinder look tiny. Hopefully during Jinder's year off he learned about improving match storytelling.

    I agree with what you're saying here.

    But talk about damning someone with faint praise.

    Yeah I mean that's not exactly saying much. The Bollywood Boys sucked, Jinder sucked, but the Boys were the best part lol....Wow. It's like getting a shit sandwich and bragging about how good the sesame seed bun it came on tasted.

    The worst thing to happen to the business was Lawler's commentary. Let's be honest here.

    He was pretty terrible, a 50-something announcer acting like he was 10 years old. Fucking embarrassing…

    Proper heel Lawler in the 90s was glorious, but same goes for JR, became a shell and a caricature of himself over time.

    Maybe looking back on it in 2021 but at the time it was fucking incredible. I'll still take 50 something acting like a 10 year old Jerry Lawler over 90% of the announcers in the history of wrestling. He's top 10, easily. The only color commentator better-imho-was Bobby Heenan. Heenan, King, and The Body.

    I'll go as far to say that there was a point in wrestling where every announcer went to shit and nobody since has really been worth a damn minus a handful of talent. If we're just solely talking about WWE, because I think in the wrestling business we've had maybe 3 good announcers come to the table in the last 15 years: Mauro, Corey Graves, and Nigel McGuinness. Kevin Kelly is ok, a few others but we don't have a prime JR or a prime King or even a Joey Styles or Gorilla Monson, nothing.

    He was god awful, and putting him next to probably the universally agreed upon best announcer of all time JR just made him look twice as bad. Tazz wasn't much better.
