Re: Rey Mysterio currently working without WWE contract

Rey won't go anywhere right now, he's getting a last push in WWE PLUS they're probably doing a bunch of stuff for Dominic, so there's no real reason to fear he'll suddenly show up elsewhere.

Re: BRM Reviews AEW Fyter Fest 2020: Week 2

How does Darby Allin ever expect to get cleared by AEW if he's backflipping onto skateboards and coffin dropping from 40 feet? Yeah, you could say "he's proving he can do a bunch of stuff" but this also shows that he's just being reckless with his own recovery. Taz and the FTW Championship, not good...

Re: WR 2020 Half of the Year Awards

Worst Major Show of the Year (must be a PPV or indy show, no episodes of TV shows): Wrestlemania Question: Should each night of Mania and Wrestle Kingdom be considered individually? That's how I approach this, at least. It should be taken as an overall show, that’s what I’ve done. And Wrestlemania ...

Re: BRM Reviews AEW Fyter Fest 2020: Week 1

Taz is in the top 3 promos in the current wrestling world. Change my mind. I've been thinking about this, and the compromise I have come to is that while Taz is a better "cut a promo to build my guy up" manager, I find MVP to be a more interesting character. His promos building Lashley up are very ...

Re: Impact terminates relationship with Tessa Blanchard, title vacated

I wouldn’t expect this of Tessa. Shocking behaviour. IMPACT! Didn’t ask for much, and yet they got zilch.

I guess her dad will be having a word in Tony Khan’s ear now.

Re: BRM Reviews the 6/22/2020 Raw (AWESOME! Best one in YEARS! WATCH THIS SHOW!)

First thing to notice (Big Show's promo aside) is that things made sense. Much of the show was building towards something more and not just there for a pop or just for that show, it felt like there was more to come.

Re: Report: Bar Wrestling closed amid Joey Ryan sexual assault allegations

There isn't many decent sized wrestling companies in the UK, you've got maybe 5 tops that can draw more than 250-300 people to a wrestling show. So each company loss is a big deal. I was talking about this with a friend over the weekend, assuming companies like PROGRESS ignore their WWE relationshi...

Re: A definitive list of everyone who's been accused of sexual assault so far.

The news about the Knights doesn't shock me, they're 40 miles from me and there have been rumours about their conduct particularly to young wrestlers in particularly shocking.

They're also heavily linked to Tyler Bate as well. In the UK, they're unlikely to survive this.

Re: Report: Bar Wrestling closed amid Joey Ryan sexual assault allegations

I think someone else will open up if the concept has been proving profitable. If Joey Ryan can run a company, someone else from the locker room can surely put on a similar concept show, with a new name and keep most of the people involved employed. Especially because the venue seems willing to work...

Re: A definitive list of everyone who's been accused of sexual assault so far.

Depends on the rules of the company. Most would have it as a rule. But that doesn't make it against the law. Unless it is a law in the US. didn't Sexual Offences Act 2003 in the UK make is so that someone 18+years that is a 'person of trust' (read as teacher/trainer) cannot have sexual relationship...

Goodbye Bullshit Wrestling Company. If anyone is a sex offender its a guy who gets off on doing bullshit "dickflips".

Re: A definitive list of everyone who's been accused of sexual assault so far.

Depends which country Banks resided in when dating McKenzie. In this country, age of consent is 16, so it wouldn't be illegal in the UK for example. not if they were in a teacher/student position at the time. Depends on the rules of the company. Most would have it as a rule. But that doesn't make i...

Re: A definitive list of everyone who's been accused of sexual assault so far.

The "Me too" movement has hit wrestling HARD. All these mid level talents are done. This gives WWE free reign to save more money and bring the axe down. There's too many NXT UK guys for this not to put that brand in serious trouble if any of these turn out to be proven. Could they use this to save ...
