In Topic: Roman Reigns as the ace post-Wrestlemania

Yesterday, 07:44 PM

From what I saw UFC got less money, which was pretty surprising given expectations in recent months.

This is a massive success but he didn't create the situation. He just kept a steady ship that could benefit from it.

 

This is pretty important and I think deserving of quite a bit of credit.  I haven't been a fan of much of the main roster creative over the last 18 months, but he built a model that grew to and could sustain business at this level while never letting creative fall to a point that it imperiled the business as a going concern.

Not really. The most interesting part is Bruce discussing the ending and the obvious Hogan debacle.

 

Thanks, perhaps will check it out if some others this week don't seem interesting, but doesn't seem like I need to go out of my way.


In Topic: Bruce Prichard's credibility

Bumping this.

 

I've decided that my biggest issue is not with the podcasts themselves. Workers gonna work, which is how wrestling has always been. The bigger issue is with the Twitter army. They are awful. (No particular event prompted this post, just Dave arguing with Pritchard-Russo-Bischoff trolls on Twitter all the time.)

 

Agreed, but its even more disappointing Dave has taken it up as some kind of marketing effort.  I'm sure he knows better and that it makes him a tough follow for many, but this is apparently one one road he'll go down for purely quantitative purposes without regard for how he comes off.

Anything worthwhile on the '92 Rumble episode?
