Re: VOW Flagship: TNA/Billy Corgan Saga, FloSlam, Hell in a Cell & more!

If Corgan was smart, he'd get his money back plus interest and walk away. Why in the fuck would anybody want a welfare wrestling company with millions of debt, nearly zero revenue streams, and a worthless TV deal that may or may not get renewed in April? He reeks of a total money mark who's desperat...

Re: Official WWE Thread

This James Elsworth angle is going to be the end of me watching Smackdown. My lord. You're in the minority on this one I'm getting that impression. Over the past three months, they've done a great overall job with Smackdown. This angle would be fine on the undercard, because that's where the comedy...

Re: PWG (Pro Wrestling Guerilla)

I bought PWG DVD's up until 2014, when we converted our entire library to digital. We don't even have a DVD player in the home at this point, so the dollars that used to go to PWG have been reallocated to other promotions. That said, if the majority of PWG fans are still buying DVD's, by all means k...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Power Struggle sells out 12 days in advance with Naito (c) vs. Lethal main. Another feather in the cap of Naito as a draw, and will likely be his 7th 5000+ attendance show main-evented this year, same number as Okada. Anyone claiming Naito isn't a big time draw at this point can go kick rocks. This...

Re: Official WWE Thread

Foley needs to go home. He's embarrassing himself out there. The constant social media flubs aren't doing him any favors either.

Re: Potential WWE Network Changes & FloSports Speculation

Got the Roku app loaded up this morning. I'm going to be diving deep into the women's beach volleyball scene as a perk of my subscription.
College Beach Bash is coming up next month 8-)

Brock and Paul are just collecting their money. Neither of them really give a fuck at this point and I can't say I blame them.

Re: Official WWE Thread

RAW was in Minneapolis tonight and I could have gone but I'm so glad I didn't waste the money. The show was absolutely dreadful, I don't understand how you can only have five minutes of entertaining TV in the span of over three hours. It's like they throw crap at the walls to see what sticks but ev...

Re: OBSERVER SCOOP: WWE NETWORK CHANGES AFFECTING ROH AND TNA

Dave was just posting on the situation over at the WON boards. WWE are silent partners and have no say Flo's day-to-day operations. They are not happy that the price for independent wrestling content just skyrocketed (his word) because of this and it's impact on what they had planned for the Network...

Re: "Why NXT May Be a Long-Term Detriment For Pro Wrestling"

If this ends up being the indy wrestling stuff on the Network, i'm really interested in the amount of people who willingly shell out $5 more. I have a suspicion that is won't be nearly as many people as they're expecting.

I spoke to six people this weekend who have seen BOLA. All of them loved it. Not a single one bought the DVD set.

Re: VOW big picture feedback

Also this is small picture feedback, but a lot of the time I click on the "forums" tab on the main page it sends me to a worthless part of the site called voicesofwrestling.com/forums The actual URL is "/forum" without the "s." May explain why the boards have been more subdued recently - this probl...

Re: VOW Flagship: Sasha Banks/Charlotte Hell in a Cell, Dragon Gate & Questions!

The titles in WWE have been merged and split so many times that you can make up whatever lineage you need to fit the narrative. As someone with a strong appreciation for the history of this business, it drives me crazy.
