    All this talk of WWE wanting to throw big money at guys to come in....anyone watching the PPV last night is reminded of why they've avoided going. Ugh Anyway, Hulk Hogan is back. Supposedly not on RAW and I suspect they want to see if the announcement gets any blowback before he appears. They're working on a Network special about it (taped his address to the crew last night). It amazes me that WWE should be the smartest guys in the world and yet, they seem to have such trouble with the creative aspect. The Tag titles are meaningless (I assume they'll end up with the Revival next, though I'd put them on Drew & Ziggler). They've killed Asuka dead. They've managed to make fans cheer the idea of stripping Brock and him never returning (despite the fact they pay him millions of dollars per year to be "special"), they have Owens do an idiotic bump and Braun laughs about losing (how many other sports do wins/losses not matter). They keep beating Roman trying to make him sympathetic which isnt working because they keep reminding you "its his yard" and he's the top guy. The book an Iron Man Match which almost always suck when WWE does it and the fans dont care one iota. Then they book it backwords with the heel being the underdog. Plus, if Owens/Braun is a cage match so Owens cant run away, why isnt there a roof? Why are the rules "escape the cage"? Why put Ellsworth in a Shark Cage above the ring so he cant interfere when, in fact, he does! Then when fans complain its like 'well dont watch then'. The problem is, look at their ratings, people are tuning out. They tease Brock tonight. The Hogan thing was about getting the word out so people tune in tonight. They need to pop a rating. And probably will to a degree. Vince needs to move aside ASAP.

    Indefensible for this to continue in the wake of the recent murders of journalists. Trump clearly likes it and he talks like a dictator

    And trump called the investigation a witch hunt after being briefed on the endictments. He sure acts guilty.

    They’ve said they won’t. The simple idea would be to have him promoted to the Reliant. But since they’ve recast all the characters anyway I don’t have an issue with re-casting. There are other legacy characters that could take his place such as Gary mitchell.

    It wouldn’t surprise me if they announce Trouba and josh at the same time.

    I really hope the American people do what is needed. Right or left, the only answer now is to send a wave of professsive Democrats to Congress. If you believe in law and justice, that’s what must happen

    I believe the Bucks's contracts expire at the end of December (I think they are strictly ROH contracts). Kenny's contract is with New Japan and expires at the end of January (I believe its the day after Rumble because I joked with him that he should insist it expire the day OF the Rumble just to make the internet explode). If Im New japan & ROH, they HAVE to be trying to lock those guys up ASAP. The longer they dont, the more indication it is that those guys are willing to listen. I'd be surprised if Kenny went though. The opportunity for ROH/New Japan in running MSG is perception. Right now, a bunch of outlets who wanted WWE TV lost out....generally speaking, Networks felt it was WWE or a bust (no alternative, certainly not Impact). The increasing popularity of New Japan in the US can open doors. NJ has a TV deal on AXS, owned by Mark Cuban who has said he wants to see NJ continue to expand. That's a major advocate. Plus, ROH is owned by the very very huge TV company, Sinclair. If a Network or streaming outlet targets wrestling, there really is no alternative to WWE but New Japan/ROH and its not just a minor league alternative anymore. There is huge potential growth. MSG raised their profile big time. A National US deal with Kenny Omega as the face of the TV on a weekly basis has a lot of potential. Bucks, Okada, Cody...and it creates a scenario where guys have options. The Elite said they wanted to change the wrestling world. They might...

    Yeah but arbitration can be nasty. Its always better to avoid it.

    You heard that? 😉 The relationship between MSG and WWE goes back to Vince's grandfather. The initial speculation was MSG was getting annoyed at WWE going to Barclays for TV and letting ROH (and AAA) book a hold was a way to get WWE's attention. It worked as WWE and MSG spoke and suddenly the dates weren't avail. No idea what happened in the interim but ROH did say their lawyers were involved. Its possible MSG thumbed their nose at WWE but if the deal was simply to run TV or PPV there, they'd probably be able to come to an agreement. WWE is very, very unhappy about this, you can bet on that. Not only because it's MSG, but because it's WM weekend (and likely against their own NXT event). Its par for the course. Cody tried to talk with Staples about All In and couldnt even get a meeting due to their relationship with WWE. Its possible WWE didnt like getting drawn into this and with lawyers involved, dropped their opposition. They've blinked when stared down by ROH before. You can bet that date will be war...and Kenny and the Bucks just saw their potential contract offers by WWE increase to make sure they arent available. Same with Bryan actually...He's in an amazing position right now with a contract that expires in a couple months.

    Im not saying it was done specifically, Im saying in general terms. Let's not get anal about 250. Ofcourse, the trade included Armia who just signed for almost $2 million, which the Jets would have had to pay if they kept him (and traded him).

    It really shows you the difference. You've got these idiot Republican's doing everything they can to create a lie that the FBI conspired against Trump. You'd think whatshisname, the agent they've been grilling was a mass murderer...they interrogate him but they dont care about Trump? Ridiculous. Partisan nonsense. Traitors to their country. If the elevator tape ever sees the light of day, the GOP, which has embraced Trump in a souless way, are finished.

    Trump is going to have to fire his entire DOJ. He looks like such an idiot (and complicit) when he continues to deny. I wonder if the timing of this announcement is merely coincidental to the fact trump is out of the country and about to meet with Putin. Is the DOJ openly trolling trump now? Lol

    That trade with Montreal effectively paid for Helle's new deal.
