  2. All positive stories! I see what you're doing here.

  3. Kinda lame that Balor can't change up the makeup. I hope they decide to let him 'cause small changes in the entrance could keep it interesting.

  8. Year long unbeaten streak followed by one defeat and then
    disappeared, right? That’s an odd career to have.

    ReplyDelete
  9. By "permanent", I assume they mean that the paint won't be a one-off. He probably won't have a new look every week, but I wouldn't be surprised if he cycles every three months or so (similar to how Cena will debut a new shirt/color every few months, usually for big shows/matches).

    ReplyDelete
  10. Will Finn also bring towels with inspirational messages on them to the ring?

    ReplyDelete
  11. Absolutely. I'm not saying anything negative against him. I just think changing up the entrance a little bit every so often would be good to keep it fresh.


    Once you've seen Rey jump out from under the ring, it loses it's luster after the 500th time.

    ReplyDelete
  12. El Patron might actually do really well in ROH. I'm excited for the guy. Always liked him, but his character really limited him.

    ReplyDelete
  13. If that's the case, cool.

    ReplyDelete
  14. He did suck when he first started, but I heard he was making improvements when they sent him back to development.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Thread's very quiet. Let's have a big fucking argument about something.

  16. Tiny towels

  17. I wonder if guys will be pulling out all the stops at TLCS on Sunday.

  18. Wasn't Crimson the guy with the Goldberg like undefeated streak, but he really sucked in that "I'm terrible in the ring but I also don't have any charisma" kind of way?

    ReplyDelete
  19. Theberzerker! HUSS!December 12, 2014 at 7:40 AM

    If Finn's going to do the makeup as much as possible, look forward to him just being called Balor on the main roster. No reason to play up being Irish if your deal is to be a bodypaint monster.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I can see guys like Ziggler, Harper, Bray, and Ambrose going balls to the wall tomorrow.

    I can see Rollins trying to go balls to the wall, but he's in there with Cena, who could put on a stinker in the main event and won't hurt his spot at all.

    ReplyDelete
  21. They better. There are brass rings to grab!

  22. MikeyMike, JuggernautDecember 12, 2014 at 7:43 AM

    Crimson was absolutely awful in TNA. He was awful as a face and awful as a heel.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I'm betting that Mike Johnson is 100% wrong and Balor will wear the bodypaint only on big shows like he did for a small time in NJPW before he signed to WWE. I remember reading that Devitt said that the bodypaint took hours to complete.

    ReplyDelete
  24. MikeyMike, JuggernautDecember 12, 2014 at 7:45 AM

    Rollins has been all over Cleveland media today. He was on Fox 8 in the morning with Wayne and Christy and then I heard him on Rover (I don't listen to Rover but when scrolling stations I heard his voice).

    His knees. It also hurts his knees.

  29. Everything hurts his knees.


    I stared at his knees one time, and he tore a patella.

  30. Anyone know what happened to Albert on commentary? I think he was doing a really good job when he started his Jesse Ventura style.

    ReplyDelete
  31. His girlfriend/wife/mom/sister's face is pretty nice though.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Doing the media rounds I see. Kind of a waste because tickets are near sold out. I'm shocked they didn't send Ziggler or Miz like they usually do.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Theberzerker! HUSS!December 12, 2014 at 7:49 AM

    They sent Rollins out to radio stations when they had Smackdown in a Philly a few months ago. Before that it was Mark Henry. They switch it up all the time.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Maybe they found a way to finally get rid of that outrageous contract.

  35. Not really a fan of the spider predator entrance.

    Apparently he was a Licker from Resident Evil...if that makes any difference.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Ziggler and Miz are proud Clevelanders and usually do the media stuff here, that's why I thought they would send them. Good to see Rollins doing some media stuff though. The guy has really turned into a star.

  38. Oh, no question. I was making the sex with all of them!

  39. Extant1979 - Mr. Cable AccessDecember 12, 2014 at 7:51 AM

    I feel like the main WWE roster is being trolled by having these NXT shows - which are usually amazing - right before a PPV Sunday. Step up your game, boys. Developmental showed you how it should be done last night.


    Also, for all the complaints about the current product and how there seems to be little hope, watching NXT last night with a bunch of guys who can go eases a lot of potential concerns.

    ReplyDelete
  40. My thoughts on the news:


    1. Don't really watch Smackdown but hyping the main event makes sense at least.


    2. The unique look helps a lot and he can pull it off so go with it.


    3. He has always been a solid worker and hopefully the fans do not reject him for being a WWE guy.


    4. They have worse guys that get time in NXT. Worth a look at least.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Extant1979 - Mr. Cable AccessDecember 12, 2014 at 7:53 AM

    They rotate commentators on NXT a lot. There hasn't been one real consistent voice on any of the shows.

  43. I don't think any of us have concerns about the talent, but its the writing that has us frustrated..

    ReplyDelete
  44. Alberto Del Rio and AJ Styles are proving that an ex-WWE or ex-TNA top guy can make good money in the indies if you play your cards right.

    ReplyDelete
  45. um. no. Never played the game, nor saw any of the movies.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Each of them have to work for multiple promotions in multiple countries just to sniff the kind of money they were making though.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Way ahead of you. I went to the website when i saw the links weren't included in the post.

    Well it's been revealed they had their eye on him from the start. Reigns too. Ambrose should buy Punk a gift basket or something for helping them notice him.

    ReplyDelete
  50. If Vince saw that one...ermm...sexier than average...Tyler Black match, I don't doubt it.

    ReplyDelete
  51. But they also have the advantage of making their own schedule and work less dates. They can get more time off that way too.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I'm guessing you may do it for millions in Ice Cream.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Healthfood > Ice Cream

    ReplyDelete
  54. If AJ would've stayed in TNA, he'd be working 3-4 dates a month and making the same amount of money that he was in TNA in his last year.

    ReplyDelete
  55. The Royal family does suck. I agree! 50 million a year to sit around doing nothing.

    ReplyDelete
  56. No way. He has already said he earned way more this year than if he would have stayed in TNA. And that was in August.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Extant1979 - Mr. Cable AccessDecember 12, 2014 at 7:58 AM

    The writing can be irritating, but if the TALENT brings the goods doing matches, I can overlook the writing.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Extant1979 - Mr. Cable AccessDecember 12, 2014 at 7:59 AM

    I used their Facebook link to vote this morning.

    ReplyDelete
  59. He's not going to say he's making less. Why would he admit that? AJ was making very good money in TNA. He was just upset that Gaburick told him to his face that TNA might not have a spot for him anymore. Also, TNA's new taping schedule has them taping 3 days in a row then they are off for the next 25+ days. I'm sure he'd gladly do that then having to fly over to Japan a couple of times a month and work for weeks straight. He's also all over the country working for independent companies heck he's even putting THEIR talent over him.

    ReplyDelete
  60. AJ Styles has said he makes more on the indies than he would've if he accepted TNA's last offer they made him. Rumor was that his last contract was $350k, but TNA only offered him $200k to renew.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Yeah, wasn't it reported that AJ would've made something like $250,000 in TNA, but he was making like $400,000 elsewhere?

    ReplyDelete
  62. Extant1979 - Mr. Cable AccessDecember 12, 2014 at 8:01 AM

    "He's not going to say he's making less. Why would he admit that? "


    This is a valid point...

    ReplyDelete
  63. Styles left TNA because Gaburick hurt his feelings?

    I highly doubt that considering many ex-TNA guys (Daniels for one) are telling the same story about lowball contracts.

    ReplyDelete
  64. And rightfully so. He did nothing for ratings or attendance. He's been gone for about a year now that TNA is doing just fine. Why give him him a raise when everyone else is taking paycuts? I can't blame TNA for getting rid of him. They lowballed him purposely.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Rey actually needed the jumping lift because he was unable to walk up the stairs in gorilla.

    ReplyDelete
  67. That's exactly how I feel and even VJ has brought that up, too. I think Bayless agreed as well. The in-ring stuff has been the best in years.

    ReplyDelete
  68. And that's fair. But how do you know that rumored $200k is more than he makes in the indies? Styles probably gets paid a ton to work in Japan.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Though compelled by the ghost of King Arthur to
    defend my hallowed land, I agree with all these 3 points. I defy anyone to despise
    the Royal Mafia more than I.

    ReplyDelete
  70. They were smart enough to basically give him the Rock's characterization. The people started to reject him, so he played to it. His ring work improved dramatically.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Hm. Well then.

    You guys drive on the wrong side of the road.

    ReplyDelete
  72. New Japan usually signs gajins to 1 year deals. We'll see if they re-sign him after this year, I can't see that happening. I'm sure he got some decent money from them, but he still has to work more dates for them than he did in TNA in his last year.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Extant1979 - Mr. Cable AccessDecember 12, 2014 at 8:07 AM

    The writing is clearly for a younger demo, but the matches have been consistently above average (for the most part). I'd love to see some variety in who gets a decent push, but a good chunk of the roster are guys who weren't there a few years ago.


    Sunday's show should be good, the Rumble is almost always enjoyable (especially if I'm only paying $9.99 for it) and then we're on the road to Wrestlemania.

    ReplyDelete
  74. TNA offered him a drastic pay cut and ran far less shows in 2014.


    He gets paid fairly well per apperance on the Independents too. And he is in demand. He is a star in New Japan right now.


    And what would he care about jobbing on an Indy show in a fed in which he is not a regular?

    ReplyDelete
  75. How exactly did "Baby It's cold Outside" get associated with xmas? The song never mentions the holidays.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Well, considering TNA hasn't had a show since September, he obviously wouldn't be working many dates for TNA.

    Do TNA contracts generally prevent wrestlers from working the indies? If so, that could be a huge sticking point for him.

    ReplyDelete
  77. it could be but TNA hasnt ran a show since October. And already cut back to a bare bones operation scale before that. How would he be making more money with them and getting his pay drastically cut?

    ReplyDelete
  78. He was offered and was making a SALARY not a pay per date rate. He would've gotten paid no matter how many dates that TNA ran.

    ReplyDelete
  79. Styles isn't the only guy who has said they're making more money in the indies than they would have if they took the pay-cut TNA offer. They all could be lying, but unlikely.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Are TNA guys getting paid right now considering they haven't run a show since September?

    ReplyDelete
  81. TNA offered him a drastic paycut because he wasn't worth what he wanted. He had the audacity to ask for a huge raise in a company that he knew was making roster cuts and budget cuts. He never drew a dime for TNA. Their ratings are the same with him or without him. Why not go out and 4-5 guys with the money they would've paid AJ?

    ReplyDelete
  82. You get paid part of the house. And New Japan is not a struggling promotion at all. They are in position to offer him more than TNA. Plus AJ can take autograph signings and conventions.

    ReplyDelete
  83. Depends on their contracts. I think Gail, Aries, Joe, Angle are off the books until January.

    ReplyDelete
  84. No one has drawn a dime for TNA.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Because it's cold, thus being in the winter.


    Winter Wonderland is the same.

    ReplyDelete
  86. So why should AJ get a raise?

    ReplyDelete
  87. TNA has allowed their talent to work indies from October until January during their break.

    ReplyDelete
  88. He stuck with them form day one and could have tried and gone elsewhere. He was a loyal guy.

    ReplyDelete
  89. You're a violent man.

    ReplyDelete
  90. Even Hulk Hogan couldn't draw money for TNA, and he is arguably the most popular wrestler of all time.

    ReplyDelete
  91. I thought so because I know the Hardys and the Dudleys were doing indie gigs, but I didn't know if they were considered special because of their status.

    If TNA only does 3-4 shows a month, they really should allow their talent to do spot indie gigs. That could help promote the product.

    ReplyDelete
  92. AJ gets $2,500 per apperance in the U.S.


    He can work 80 dates a year here and make what TNA was offering him. Plus he can work Japan and any convention he wants at his own schedule.

    ReplyDelete
  93. I agree on this as well. I’m going to start leading by example right
    away.

    ReplyDelete
  94. MikeyMike, JuggernautDecember 12, 2014 at 8:18 AM

    I'm surprised there are so many remakes of that song.

    ReplyDelete
  95. TNA made AJ a star. Without him he'd be nowhere. WWE never wanted him. They never even called him when he was done with TNA.


    Loyalty only goes so far. Wrestling is a business. If the company is doing budget cuts, why would you go in and say, "Hey I want a raise!" He's dragged TNA's name through the mud for the last year with his bitterness. He was completely shocked when Gaburick brought his ego back to Earth. The guy thinks he's a bigger star than he is. He's a hell of a wrestler, but not worth the amount he wanted.

    ReplyDelete
  96. make sure your health insurance is paid up.

    oh, wait. Socialist country.


    Never mind. Tally ho, dude.

  97. Don't make me hurt you.

    WHY DO YOU ALWAYS MAKE ME HURT YOU?????

    ReplyDelete
  98. AJ Styles said WWE did make him an offer after he left TNA, but it was apparently a basic NXT offer and was even lower than TNA's low offer.

    ReplyDelete
  99. 80 dates a year here plus he's working about 80 dates in Japan, plus conventions and he's working nearly 2/3 of the year. In TNA, he would've worked about 60-70 dates a year, still been able to do conventions because yes TNA does allow their talent to do that stuff and work indies as long as its not on iPPV or DVD.

    ReplyDelete
  100. AJ said during a shoot that WWE never called him.

  102. Huh, misinformation then. I'm not surprised because WWE doesn't tend to sign guys with TNA stink on them.

    ReplyDelete
  103. That and he is 35 years old with marginal promo skills.

    ReplyDelete
  104. So like AJ said, he is earning more now than if he would have signed with TNA.

    ReplyDelete
  105. And working twice as much.

    ReplyDelete
  106. He said that the WWE offered him a contract before he signed with TNA.

    None of that is positive.

  119. Eh, I'm not wild about Devitt's new makeup, but perhaps it will grow on me. Unlike the name Finn Balor, which is still awful.

    People clown them for being on Spike, but they were not growing at all on that network. You never saw when it was on nor did they do a good job of promotion.


    Destination America gave them Impact on Friday and a recap show Saturday morning. Just that alone is more than what Spike offered.


    Now if they can get Xplosion on the air it's a definite win.

    But it's still leaning on someone else to help you promote your own product. That's been TNA's #1 issue and it doesn't matter what network you put them on - if they don't put the effort into advertising their shows, then it's pointless.

    Shoot, even if they have to cut back on a couple shows and use that money for promoting the other ones, they'd be in it a lot better than being put on Fridays on a network you need the search function to find (if you even get that network, like I DON'T, sigh).

  152. Never really thought about all of them. Doesn't Good King mention christ or something?

  153. I saw an Ezekiel Jackson action figure that I could have sworn was Ahmad Johnson. I'm pretty sure they're not supposed to look the same.

  154. TNA will now be available for me on channel 1465. All the good stuff comes after 1,000 for TV channels. BTW even my league pass channels are lower than that. That is fucking buried deeper than Antonio Cesaro.

  155. There are a couple more, like Kenny Loggin's "Celebrate Me Home" and that "Same Auld Lang Syng" song or whatever where the two people lament life - I thought they would've pulled a shotgun on each other and ended it, but what do I know.

  156. I'm surprised the FemiNazis haven't banned that song yet for having lyrics that support "sexual harassment".

    ReplyDelete
  157. That's actually Ahmeds nephew.

  158. 900 channels for advertising have to go first.

  159. Also, I always wondered what kind of pop they would get if the Rock was outnumbered by The Shield and the Nation's music hit to make the save, just as a one off.

  160. Are you serious? Is that why he wore the same colors?

  161. I actually want to have access to Impact Wrestling. But I'm not going to pay the extra $$$ to check it out on my cable. At least youtube is a viable option.

  162. Crimson wasn't a great worker for TNA but his look wasn't bad and his real life military back story could be useful to WWE's marketing.

  163. Upvote for the avatar. Voorhees for the win.

  164. They lowballed him because they were still reeling from paying Hogan a shit ton of money to promote everything under the sun BUT the company that was paying him money.

  165. Is there such a thing as xmas decorations that are not dumb?

  167. Am I the only one that got Da Dip played at every Jr high dance? Had to vote for that and the party of 5 song.

  168. Again, I can’t accept they thought he was valueless when the guy spent
    the last 3 months or whatever of his contract holding the TNA World Heavyweight
    Title.

    Giving him the body paint permanently isn't my first choice, since it dilutes the impact a bit (I'd bust it out for special occasions and all), but can't complain too awful much.

    On another note, Sami Zayn's theme is CATCHY AS FUCK and suits him perfectly. If they let him he could be the biggest baby face that ever baby faced one day.

    This was my issue with Spike. If you have a show on your Network wouldn't it be in your best interest to promote it?


    I watch Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon do this shit all the time: They take a popular show, move it to a fucked up time slot without telling anyone then cancel it due to low ratings.

    ReplyDelete
  171. yeah, but it's not about his birth

    ReplyDelete
  172. Like with who? Only thing I know about was Sam and Cat, and that was because JM is a bit "loose", or something like that. But your point is valid.

    My issue with promotion deals with stuff outside of Spike - the "the town I was in didn't even know I was there!" AJ stuff he said a while back.

    ReplyDelete
  173. No one ever doubted that. Years ago, Raven said his indie dates got him more money than his WWF downside.

    HOWEVER, Raven, AJ and ADR all have the advantage of being able to get booked anywhere at any time because of their name value. Not so for, say, the Young Bucks.

  174. Uh, yuh? It's in December. Which, unless you're Mr. Satan or the other two Aussie guys, you're probably cold in December.

  175. NXT actually has some better themes than WWE right now.

    ReplyDelete
  176. Well, crap. Like I wasn't already jaded enough.

    ReplyDelete
  177. Spike actually paid for Hogan's contract, not TNA.

  179. Your logic is faulty. It is often cold outside of xmas.

    I am starting to question your morals an character.

    ReplyDelete
  180. I LOVE Sami's theme. So perfect for a babyface like him today. I remain shocked they somehow topped Ole (for me).

    ReplyDelete
  181. Oh, I can answer that!


    ....I have terrible morals and I have no character.


    *pinches nipple*


    YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH!

  182. What's important isn't the reach of the station, it's that the station will make TNA it's priority. That's why they're being put on at 9pm Friday night when everyone's out drinking, and 10am on Saturday when everyones sleeping off the night before.

    ReplyDelete
  183. But who would it be? Simmons and Henry? Brown and Godfather don't seem to be in the biz and Owen...sniff...RIP.


    The Nation doesn't get enough props...I liked them a whole lot more than DX.

    ReplyDelete
  184. Problem is a lot of WWE fans are WWE fans, they're not necessarily wrestling fans.

  185. LET'S GO!!!


    I was there for Third Wave ska. Most of it was bad, but it was catchy bad.

    ReplyDelete
  186. Ooh. Crimson. I'd rather read Vicodin and Virtue: The Shawn Michaels Story than see more Crimson.

    ReplyDelete
  187. Oh same for me as well. Da Dip and Let Me See That Tootsie Roll were STAPLES

    ReplyDelete
  188. I think they could get the Godfather and D'Lo for a 1 off. Godfather came out for the AWESOME appearance at the Rumble. Yea I liked the Nation more than DX too.

    ReplyDelete
  189. He's really just another Gunner, Magnus, etc. to me. I can't tell any of those TNA stiffs apart
