Do guys just forget RF was a pedo or do they just not care? I want to ask that of everyone I see doing a video for him.

In wrestling there are worse things than a 30-year-old having sex with 16-year-olds. Did any wrestler ever refuse to work with Jimmy Snuka? How many people went back to Puerto Rico after the Brody thing?

This qualifies as corruption of minor BTW, not pedophilia. Not the same thing, really. But anyway, this is neither here nor there. He sucks, and not just…. (refrain from making a joke here).

 

(and yeah, Snuka, Barr, Rockers drug-fucking "rats" (which qualifies as rape BTW) etc… this is (was ?) a sleazy business. One case I can think of was Kanemura, after he sexually assaulted a women wrestler in a locker room, he was basically blacklisted)

I wonder how different Schiavone found RF's 'ask questions flatly from a sheet with no follow up whatsoever' from Conrad's prepared, thorough grilling.

 

I have my issues with Big Conrad at times but he puts an honest effort in, and to be fair he works better with Schiavone anyway.

2008. Actually it was not a female wrestler, it was an employee of the company, Big Japan. He was basically sexually harrassing her until he was denounced by Big Japan's ring announcer. Public apology, got fired, disappeared from basically all the promotion he was working with at the time, and he was everywhere back then. I think he promoted for a while, but that was really the end of the game for Kanemura.

Wow, can't believe that was the end of Kanemura but that does seem like a sleazy thing to do no matter your line of work. Thanks for explaining.

With the *free* weekly podcast, this is more irrelevant than ever. Wish he would work with KC though.

 

There is still value in a video product for me. There's something about being able to sit down with some snacks and being able to watch something that can't be touched in terms of entertainment.

I agree. And the idea of a full, albeit swift, overview of a whole career in one sitting is appealing to me.

Tony's looking well for someone who would be easy to cop to being old and fat.

Did he ever explain as to why he never got a job with WWE in 2001?

 

At the time dirtsheets said he was in negociations but he kept calling the office for a answer and in the end they decided not to give him a job.

Money > morals. Morals don't pay the bills for broke wrestlers.

Haven't seen it but I would guess that he didn't leave enough of a good taste in Vince's mouth from his previous run to hire him.
