Re: WWE bans slapping the leg/thigh when throwing kicks

I hope they also ban stomping the floor when you punch someone, they should also ban fake punches, maybe change the name of the sport to, stay with me, mixed martial arts

this is universally stupid McMahon doings

Re: Cero Reviews NJPW 49th Anniversary Show

I'm not saying the logic isn't sound, but I could make the same argument that O-Khan just lost a big match and he's much lower than Naito on the totem pole so why not have Naito beat O-Khan and then give the big win over Naito to someone else you're looking to give a big win to. And usually when pu...

Re: Cero Reviews NJPW 49th Anniversary Show

I did not expect Naito to lose to O-Khan. They really do seem to be trying to push O-Khan. Naito also just lost his title rematch, there's no point in having him go long. Just eliminate him early, let him rest for the big Yokohama/Tokyo Dome shows coming, and meanwhile push O-Khan with a big win.

Re: NXT close on finalizing move to Tuesday starting after WrestleMania

I hear you, there’s probably a thing about it behind the scenes and in the advertising, but it’s just not something discussed here, so it’s not something I’ve really ever understood, but the overall point is, who cares about the “key demo” if it’s for advertising revenue only? Like, business wise, ...

Re: NXT close on finalizing move to Tuesday starting after WrestleMania

I listened to Dave daily from 2014 to 2020 and never remember hearing the term "the demo" or any concern about how WWE was doing in it until AEW came along and did better than NXT in it. (1) why would it matter if there isn't competition? (2) didn't you say that USA wasn't looking at demos?

Re: NXT close on finalizing move to Tuesday starting after WrestleMania

But we KNOW that USA doesn't care about the demos. They have other shows for that. WWE has always been the "total viewers" show for USA. Ditto for TNA. It's why pro wrestling TV has been so valuable to networks despite the low ad-rates (and WWE's ad-rates are currently the highest they ha...

Re: NXT close on finalizing move to Tuesday starting after WrestleMania

I think in some of the earlier days sure, it was competition. But it's not like AEW are going after Raw or Smackdown, they're after the C show. I wouldn't count that as a huge loss. But in this circumstance, they have the "get out" of not admitting any defeats or anything and it was just ...

In that case 1. Dave, Wade, Johnson, etc. should be talking about the DVR numbers more (I think Keller is the only one who normally mentions them, and then usually only in regard to SD) 2.
