  • 25 years ago today. A day that was to me what the Kennedy assassination was to my father (pardon the hyperbole)




    that was a confusing fucking time to try to figure out what was story and what was kayfabe. 
    Has it ever really been confirmed that it was a screw job?  i mean I have watched a few specials on it and they are wrestlers telling the story after all...

    one of my favourite Off The Record (TSN talk show) episodes was with Bret Hart. I think it was a two parter, and man did I look forward to that, and it freaking delivered. 
    I'm through with screaming...

    I remember reading a transcript of that on the internet just days after the Survivor Series. I think he did the interview maybe a week or two before it.

    i'm referring to the one where he did a two part interview several years later and spilled all the beans about everything. it might have been 2003. (I actually don't recall him doing one prior to the screwjob; interesting)

    Here's the one I'm referring to. Some clips were used in Wrestling With Shadows. It was actually just two days before Survivor Series....

    Another decent premium live event last night. I do miss the traditional survivor series match-up but war games was a nice replacement.

    WWE sold to Saudi Arabia's Public Investment Fund. Don't know how it will affect some of the wrestlers? Or even the company itself

    It's all about writing and branding.  Could this Saudi group do it?

    There's no deal so far and hopefully won't be. Did you not follow the controversy surrounding LIV Golf? Unfortunately money talks and people would take the money. But guys like Sami Zayn who's involved in Syrian charity. How will they treat the women or LGBTQ... wrestlers? Maybe it's just about money and they won't get involved. But even then

    I didn't think it would get political and go sideways.  i figured it would just be a changing of the guard.

    pretty decent Royal Rumble albeit very predictable. Everyone thought it would be Cody and Rhea winning it which they did.Gunther lasting like an hour and 11 minutes was pretty surprising. Also the very end when Sami clocked Roman with a chair shot to the back. As well as Jey Uso walking out "confused" was great story telling. Only match that was meh was Bianca vs Alexa Bliss.

    The lights out match was dogshit.

    The KO beat down was the worst I’ve ever seen. Just relentless. The crowd joining in the FU Roman chant section by section was epic.

    I stopped following AEW religiously and seeing now that Cody Rhodes is on WWE?!?  He started AEW with everyone from the ground up.  Can't believe he left?
