Wasn't a big fan of Bray Wyatt or the stupid nursery rhymes/puppet shows/bad gimmick matches, but I have to say the guy made the most of his gimmicks. (Husky Harris excluded)

Didn't Bray Wyatt ditch his wife and child to go shack up with Jojo?   :brain

Anyway-

Quote
When Bray Wyatt was released by the WWE just days ago, it reportedly had a major effect on the entire WWE roster and it even sent them shockwaves like never before. This is because Brat Wyatt was beloved by almost everyone in the WWE and he was also one of the top merchandise sellers the company has had. The feeling backstage is that since the promotion put so much time, money and effort into him and his characters, most especially his "The Fiend" character, he was untouchable and he wouldn't be affected by the releases brought about by the budget cuts.


According to Fightful, nearly 20 WWE talents said that they were very frustrated with the company and that some of the veterans even feel like their jobs are no longer safe. It was also noted that morale in WWE had dropped in a big way during the previous batch of releases, but once live events returned, morale was back up, though when Bray Wyatt was released, morale took a huge hit once again.


WWE has always seen a rotation with their talents, but lately things have been a lot different in the WWE, especially since top Superstars are the ones who are being released. The budget cuts reason that the WWE has been giving their talents is believed to be accurate as the WWE want to get their payroll under control.


A couple of years ago, a number of WWE talents were given bigger contracts because WWE Chairman Vince McMahon didn't want his wrestlers to sign with AEW, but now it seems that the mindset has changed and they are more on keeping costs down than worrying about people jumping ship to AEW or other wrestling promotions.

Like, up until the last batch of releases, nobody released was really "surprising" because it was mostly people that weren't being used or were misused that Vince had just accumulated during the years their plan was to prevent anything from ever challenging them again by way of having signed everyone.

Seems like Nick Khan is running things more than anyone has ever run shit before, tho, and he dgaf.

Bray isn't gonna have a 6 Star Meltzer match or whatever but dude's act(s) resonated with a lot of people and he sold a shit ton of merch. Cutting someone like that is a huge indictment of your ability to book a wrasslin promotion.

The dirty not so secret is that the 'E really isn't a wrasslin promotion anymore tho, they're a "global entertainment conglomerate" that is more interested in taking Saudi blood money than they are what fans wanna see :teehee

He had a Legends contract.  Apparently he asked for the release so this wasn't a budget cut.

Flair is probably going to show up in AEW as Andrade's Emotional Support Veteran. I'd guess that he finally watched AEW for the first time once Andrade debuted and noticed that old wrasslers over there don't exist just for Randy Orton to beat up.

He allegedly wasn't happy with that Lacey Evans storyline, either.  I can see him going to AEW and hanging out with his old buddy Stang.

AEW is kinda hilarious because you have all these old wrasslers as like, ostensibly coaches or valets or emotional support veterans I guess? Like, what is Jake Roberts doing hanging out with Lance Archer? Getting a pay check obviously but in a lot of ways I don't get it.

I have mostly come around on the idea of AEW tho, possibly because WWE is at what has to be an all time low. I'll watch clips of things Roman does and ppvs, but weekly RAW or SD? lol no thanks, I don't have any interest in Goldberg getting blown up on the way down to the ring to have a 5 minute match with Lashley.

NXT is still consistently good and now we also have SOMOA JOE back murdering people, which is always fun.

 :hhh

tbh the thing about AEW is that it's like... 40-50% indie wanker shit (which is not my favorite, either) 25% developmental for people that are too green for their spots but can be entertaining, and like 25-35% other shit, where the other shit can be any combo of old school rasslin featuring Cody, hardcore death match stupidity, comedy shit featuring Orange Cassidy etc, or nostalgia shit featuring [insert old guy here] and most importantly, Miro (the artist formerly known as Rusev) physically destroying people and cutting crazy promos about how he's God's favorite champion and loves his hot, double jointed wife.

I'm going to be interested to see how they fit Punk into all of it. Bryan is easy, he just wants to wrestle people and has no problem doing dumb comedy shit, honestly he'll probably start hanging out with Orange Cassidy and his group of goofballs, which will be cool just because it will trigger Cornette.

The single best thing about AEW is that it has coherent booking- people do things for reasons and it's followed up on. You don't feel stupid for rooting for someone for months or getting invested into a storyline just to have it forgotten about or suffer through dumb shit like 50-50 booking. Miro seems like a big deal because they have presented him like a big deal, and he never loses (and honestly someone that is almost 300 pounds and jacked like that SHOULD be ripping apart that roster of indie wanker shitheads).

I think it's all Vince, and I think what's going on is that HHH/NXT are seen as having "lost" to AEW and this is some kind of punishment. Would also help explain the Kross booking on RAW.

The big "wtf" is obviously Reed, but Mercedes Martinez was challenging for the women's title a couple times recently and was last seen being knocked the fuck out on live tv so that kinda sucks, Tyler Rust was in a stable (Diamond Mine) that was getting weekly tv time (even tho he personally is boring as drywall, he needs to find a fat dude and they can just be Jay and Silent Bob cosplay wrasslers cause he has no discernible personality) and Leon Ruff is ostensibly a former low/midcard champion that was frequently on tv earlier this year. All the rest of them weren't going to be used and more or less had no potential other than Jake Atlas and Bobby Fish (who is old)

they really need to stop gobbling up everyone who leaves the fed now, its very TNA, expect they do their anti :money shootz on jerichos podcast instead of the actual tv show :doge

i'd give them a shot if they had some new and interesting dudes and not be the same old vanilla midgets and cast offs i was barely watching in wwe, plus kenny omega and the young bucks and a few indie jaybrones :boring

The AEW love-in is getting a bit silly now.

The CM Punk match was hard mediocre, but I'm seeing it get B+ scores everywhere. The women's battle royale was all kinds of terrible and that got a B-. The PPV was easily 90 minutes too long, some matches felt like a real slog to get through and the only really outstanding match was Bucks v Luchas.

I get that people really want a credible opposition promotion, but automatically increasing match ratings just because it's not WWE and <insert indie darling here> is over there is entirely counter-productive.

The absolute worst thing about AEW is AEW marks.

its very much based off an anti :money sentiment

how many posts do you see about aew online that don't mention wwe somewhere?

fwiw both are shite and i watch neither (other than a couple of smackdowns when crowds came back), maybe wrestling isn't for me anymore :huh

I've been playing a lot of Total Extreme Wrestling lately. I felt this was a better home for it than making a separate thread in the vidya forums.

My best card to date:



I've been pulling a Vince and creating my own ring names to own the gimmicks, so:

Johnny Detonator: Christian Casanova
Derby All-In: Darby Allin
Eddy Mayhem: Eddy Only
Cowboy Page: Hangman Adam Page
Sid Takahashi: Hiromu Takahashi
Pat Gunn: Velveteen Dream
Thought Police: Barbaro Cavernario & El Texano Jr
Eastern Express: Tadasuke & HAYATA

Not just wrestlers, but executives too.  I think I saw that one of them was just on an earnings call a few days ago and then was let go the next day?  They're really cleaning house.
