    It would be a good decision by them. They're going to have more time slots to fill soon unless they got the ok to film Chrissley Knows Prison.

    For people like me that have been able to keep themselves perpetually trapped in the WWE years of say 1997-2000 it sure comes as a shock to see Vince looking that old

    This is an insane take. I have the ability to speak about both companies and did in depth about topics you first mentioned. I'm not switching sides I simply point out things I don't like about both companies. You guys picking teams and only wanting the echo chamber of ass kissing is a real disorder. I don't see AEW building anything special. I just spoke on how it's currently a B version of prime NXT. They have a die hard fanbase and will be given tons of time to finally figure it out. But as a matter of fact they are facing a change in TV ownership and ratings that have sunk since it's made the TNT debut. You are 100% correct about all the faults you listed about WWE and I wouldn't argue a single topic against the stupidity that the company does. In fact you can go and read all about me ranting against them for years and years... in fact go back just a few pages... I still do it.

    Please point out where my view on the topic is off. I don't mind discussing where I'm off on it.

    I post a ton and give plenty of to you guys to fire at me. Making something up entirely is pathetic. What are you guys so fragile.

    I didn't tune in tonight and by the reaction of the thread don't see a need to do so... but you marks sure a fuck did.

    just watched the clip. Vince used to be arguably the best character in wrestling. seeing his animated corpse come to the ring just makes me uncomfortable now.

    He looks like a man wearing a Vince McMahon mask...with lightly applied, weirdly blueish/purplish makeup

    When I said they were out of ideas before Cody came, and then built everything around him, then were out of ideas when he got hurt, I didn’t think they’d immediately go back to Brock vs Roman. Holy shit this company is creatively dead.

    Meanwhile, the first 10 minutes of this match are better than the last 2 hours of SD. This Dante kid can go - I always respect guys that do good rope work. :angrycorn:

    FTR vs. United Empire vs. Roppongi Vice for the ROH and IWGP tag titles is going to be fun. Watch FTR win it then eventually takes the AEW belts. If AAAA and NJPW cooperate, they'll be carrying around four tag belts at one time when you add in the AAA belts.
