Re: WrestleMania 35 Weekend (NYC Metro Area)

As a person who has possession of an NXT ticket but hasn't actually watched NXT in months, I've been transfixed by the SeatGeek ticket prices . The get-in price there is 189, a little more than what Jacob saw. There's not many available in general, which is surely part of the reason for the high pr...

Re: WrestleMania 35 Weekend (NYC Metro Area)

Full quote from Joe Lanza on this week's Voices of Wrestling Flagship Podcast. Time stamp 1:11:28 I have nothing to back this up. There's no validity to this. I don't want threads started on Reddit after this show. Word on the street, Rich - and this is just unverified bullshit - word on the street...

Re: F4W/Observer-Is it still worth paying for?

I have to be vague because what I heard wasn't necessarily on the record, but I have little reason to doubt Dave's final narrative on this. There are still things I'm confused by, like why he thought it was the best reporting he'd ever done or what the secret documents (apparently a DM or text messa...

Officially, his policy is that he covers it if it overlaps with business.

Re: WrestleMania 34 Weekend (New Orleans, LA)

Boy, that Crash lineup sure is underwhelming without Rey booked.

I take it that the WWE UK guys can only work the Friday PROGRESS shows because they'll have TakeOver dark matches on Saturday and WWE doesn't want them working twice?

Re: F4W/Observer-Is it still worth paying for?

Dave got worked by some dumbass director and some convict over LUTHER FUCKING REIGNS. Dave is washed up, end of story. 1. Did anyone read the post? Luther is ALSO a client on the dude. He wasn't saying the Reigns was Luther as people who clearly didn't read it think. 2. A guy says he has proof Reig...

Re: Game Changer Wrestling

Anyone else follow GCW? I'm pretty new, I've only been to the last two shows and Spring Break, but they've all been a lot of fun. I think this is my new favorite promotion. It's mainly deathmatch focused, but they have a little of everything. It's got a cool vibe, the guys are working super hard, c...

Re: F4W/Observer-Is it still worth paying for?

So I realized when I clicked to view the newest post that I hadn't read the posts here during the JBL/Mauro stuff. That whole thing is still...weird. I get the feeling that whatever Dave was hoping to publish was hinging on something he was expecting that he never got. Whether from Mauro or someone ...

Re: Evolve (WWNLive)

Last I heard, Gabe doesn't think Chip Day had anything to do with it anymore.

I didn't get it from anyone whose name has been thrown out publicly and neither did anyone I've talked to. Though it was floating around the indie scene a ton in general.

Re: FloSlam is Suing WWN & Everybody is Nuts

FWIW, regardless of how it was taken by Dave and whoever he told, someone reached out to say that their understanding was that Botter never made an offer for Flo buying the Observer site, just that it was a pie in the sky "What if..." type discussion early. Even if friends of Dave's have relayed it ...

Re: FloSlam Suing WWN

5. Firing Botter was a big mistake. The site was his baby and never really became what he originally pitched. I can confirm that it never really became what he pitched, because I know a lot of the ideas first hand. Full disclosure. I was in informal talks with Botter for a job with Flo shortly befo...

Re: F4W/Observer-Is it still worth paying for?

Someone on the DVDR board raised the point that Scott Williams death may have increased Dave's workload quite a bit. I'm sure it has. Scott happened to be a good fit because he was a journalist who regularly worked a night shift. And now, the Observer is being proofed by...Derek Sabato for some rea...

Would be interested to hear from the Bryan is a good host contingent if they listened to WOL the other day with Semp hosting.
