The Board is the best reason.

Absolutely spot on. All downhill afterwards. Since then: Todd, Coughlin, Sawyer and Copp, Storm, Alan. All gone, either replaced with inferior quality or not replaced at all. That's a big breadth of knowledge and specialisms they've let slip through their fingers.

What forums would be considered “art house style” since the Board clearly is not that anymore? Obviously this place is, but what else? Just PWO?

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 Reigns was a client. Dave even in the latest observer says "if this is even a legitimate story" I dont see the issue here, is he not supposed to cover it?

I've been a patreon for John and Wai, and while I do enjoy some of the content, I'm left insanely underwhelmed by Wai. He's so low energy, and most recaps its like John is pulling teeth trying to get Wai engaged. Like shit, I disagree with Alvarez on most WORs in general, but at least they both engaged.
So with a dozen wrestler clients to pick from, Bravo decides to use the one that would make people think that he was grifter who had been lying the whole time? And not any of the ones that wouldn't?

OK, sure. If you say so. That's why I can't buy it, though.

Put aside the Luther Reigns thing and try to go with this logic which we are expected to believe:

1) WWE, going into their biggest show of the year, finds out that there is a rumor that one half of their main event is accused of being a client of a drug dealer. Said wrestler already had one embarrassing wellness failure, but instead of 1) suspending him and investigating or 2) investigating and handling it, they 3) keep Braun out of a match to be an alternate just in case it blows up.

2) Bravo has information, but some two months after revealing it and after a question about the veracity emerges, he does not finally reveal the info.

I've no idea if this mentioned anywhere yet, but just a question:

What kept Dave from acknowledging the temporary split between Trevor and Tessa?

That absolutely no one could care?

Ah yes, Dave has a history of never providing tedious tabloid-style romantic life coverage.

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

Remember when Dave said something changed with Bryan and he could be getting cleared, and Bix talked about how different the situation appeared in his tweets, and they both took shit from the mongoloids of twitter.

Good times.

Martin and others seems to be insinuating that the tickets that are being sold are being gifted to them by promoters and then sold by the site as either an "add on' to their Q&A or for 100% profit to them. I don't know the truth of this but my assumption was that this was not the case and that if the F4W tickets are not sold, they will recirculate them. Maybe there is more here than just using a popular website as an additional means to sell tickets, but I don't see it.

Now, should I 'news' site like F4W do such a thing? Should a journalist like Meltzer also act as a defacto promoter even in a small part? That's a different question. I know many decry the Rosenbergs and Roberts of the world for being coopted by WWE. Not sure how much Dave and Bryan criticize that, but if they do, this would seem rather hypocritical.
