    Yup. That's what cuckold means.


    I hope WWE sanitized the NXT Women's title before Charlotte won it.

    "Lost in the Woods" is the new "One Night in Paris".

    Apparently, her and Del Rio breaking up slipped by me. Unless they haven't, in which case....Girl Power?

    Dude, I am a very jealous man (maybe I fit the Latino stereotype), so maybe that's why I couldn't even stand the mere thought of another man touching my wife (but even my girlfriend). Like I'd beat the living shit out of someone. So this is just completely confusing to me.

    Del Rio and Paige didn't break up, this is just really old.

    As for the dark joke... DAMN! Too soon, too soon. I wasn't ready. That's it, I'm triggered!

    I wonder if Del Rio knew before all of this, then again he's far from innocent either so....

    I can't believe they brung the NXT belt into it tho lol....could you imagine the places the OG Big Gold Belt has been?!?

    Edit: Apparently WWE is gonna keep New Day off of RAW in BK. Smart move or more fuel for the fans fire?

    I hope WWE puts on a good show Monday (they usually do in Brooklyn) because any lulls and the crowd is gonna chant something stupid at best, and something they'll have to censor at worst. The 2 cruiser segments better be A1, that where RAW crowds tend to get dumb.

    Probably a smart move. If they're going to chant, they're going to chant. Don't give them any ammo.

    I don't think Del Rio has much room to get angry considering he's married to another woman still lol



    His wife might be getting a big kick out of this though!

    So, I'm a little late to the party on Southpaw Regional Wrestling...but despite being an 80s southern spoof, it reminds me of every indy with TV today.

    Why would that be the case? This was before Paige was with Alberto, though it's still humiliating of course. As for Alberto and his wife, yes, they're separated or divorced, and the expectation is that you wait till that's over with before you get with another person, but it's still not strictly cheating. That isn't to say that Paige and Alberto didn't get together when Alberto was still with his wife - about that, I have no idea.

    Woods wasn't married til 2015. It's possible they were together when this happened, but certainly not guaranteed.

    You know what's weird about this gif, I remember this UpUp vid....Paige & Woods didn't even have much chemistry in it compared to other ladies that have been on. Odd...

    Also, the person behind SRW is the current Vice President of Digital Video at WWE: Brian Pellegatto. Cena tweeted to ask him for more SRW eps so at least John wants to do more.

    I forgot where I read it, but someone said they should do a SRW show at the small place NXT does houseshows at, that'd be dope. I bet the talent would have fun doing it, and it would be one of the unique things the WWE Network need IMO.

    Brad Maddox may have earned his way back to the WWE with this clip...

    Where was this guy when he was with the WWE?

    Man, WWE guys doing parody gimmicks with John Cena doing his Ron Burgandy impression on commentary in a VFW hall for $5 with a max of 200 tickets...that would be my WrestleMania. I would travel to see it.

    I would watch the fuck out of that. Honestly I mark for Terry Gene Ferguson.

    I find the whole Paige thing really gross. I feel for her knowing there is naked stuff out there of her and now she is what ELSE will slip out.

    But I always liked Brad Maddox. Hope this helps him get over on the indies.

    Best part about Southpaw is seeing the potential guys like Fandango and the Ascension have if given freedom. Chet Chetterfield steals the show.

    At tonight's SmackDown Live, WWE announced to the live crowd that their next show in the state of Connecticut will be the return of the Bad Blood pay-per-view. It will be a RAW exclusive show, and it will take place on July 9th at the XL Center in Hartford, CT. This marks the first WWE pay-per-view to take place at the XL Center since No Way Out in 2000.
    Of all the PPV's to bring back....they use a name that they prolly won't deliver on. It's damn near false advertisement.

    It's an early July PPV, why not use the Great American Bash? Or since SD gets MiTB why not have RAW run King Of The Ring?

    The term Bad Blood has nothing to do with bleeding.

    They don't like tournaments. Yeah, yeah "But CWC!", that was a special occurance with a limited roster. A show like King of the Ring requires considerably shorter matches, fewer people on the card or more multi-man matches. Even if you just have the semis and finals on the card, that's three matches.

    I like tournament shows because they cost me less money, but WWE doesn't feel the same way.

    Uh.......WWE is talking to Sinclair Broadcasting about buying ROH.

    I don't really think it's gonna happen, but if the network had ICW,Progress,ROH,205 and NXT that'd be fucking crazy.

    Trips is kinda ruthless. Still curious about what WWE does in Japan.

    anyone who thinks ROH would be bought out by WWE and then run touring still and air on the network are the same people who thought WCW would live on.

    Also, any one bitching about SBG selling to WWE is a moron too. SBG is TV station company, they don't give one shit about providing wrestlers work... ROH is probably a tax writeoff.

    From every account coming out of ROH, Sinclair is really interested in the company and its success. They've helped to grow it, and now it's a successful, self-sustaining, profitable division of their company.

    The people at Sinclair are really happy with ROH. What started out as a play to own a, hopefully break even, content generation system for their stations, has become a mutually beneficial, revenue generating division of Sinclair. This is exactly the blueprint Anthem is hoping to replicate with Impact.

    WWE wouldn't scuttle ROH, what's the point? They'd use ROH. ROH is everything NXT wants to be: a profitable, super indy with a dedicated fanbase. Try as they might NXT is a money loser. A purchase of ROH might just help turn that around.

    With WWE branching out seemingly into the UK as a territory, it wouldn't surprise me to see them want to own a profitable company like ROH to run as a completely separate division all the while generating Network content. NXT is almost too full to fit everyone and they keep signing people. It would be a great place to have contracted talent go to tour and train to cycle people in and out and gain quality, and different, experience.

    They sent Riddle to EVOLVE. Where would Enzo be today if he could've spent a year in ROH? How would the company view Breeze if they could have cycled him to ROH instead of keeping min in NXT entirely too long?

    Heard someone suggest WWE to try partner with All Japan. Giving All Japan a presence in the US market and allowing WWE to have content for their network from their past and present.

    Cool your jets dudes. There's definitely discussions going on between WWE and Sinclair (with most people saying WWE wants to the tape library and that's that) but that's all; there hasn't even been an offer made yet and the two sides have apparently been talking for awhile. Nothing is close to done and probably won't be (if ever) for months. The likelihood is this will end up exactly like the TNA thing, where WWE wanted the library, everyone thought they would get it and in the end Anthem got it. The real big story is that Sinclair may be looking to sell ROH more than anything else.

    If it were to happen it likely wouldn't be a good thing. For one they're not bringing that whole roster there. The Young Bucks for example are still contracted with New Japan and even if there was a way out of it they still seem like they want to control their own schedule and merch sales at the moment. They wouldn't be coming. Older dudes like Colt Cabana, Chris Daniels, Frank Kazarian (who had a bad experience with WWE years ago anyway) wouldn't be brought in. Really the only guys you can guarantee would be brought aboard are Cole, Lethal and probably War Machine, which is a decent haul but it's still not going to be enough to placate the fans who want this deal to happen strictly to see so many dudes brought to the mother ship. Second and most importantly, it's another potential competitor taken off the board and either wiped out or turned into another cog in the WWE machine. Sure you can paint it as some sort of piece in a worldwide developmental system and all but at the end of the day ROH, at best, would be just another piece of wrestling property that Vince McMahon and Triple H have total control over. Isn't that what got wrestling into a rut in the first place post 2001; Vince being the only important voice? Perhaps WWE takes ROH in, puts it on the Network and does nothing with it, but their history doesn't suggest that and it's more than likely that ROH (and all these other promotions involved with WWE) eventually just become mini versions of WWE and NXT themselves, much like ECW did. And that's if Vince decides he doesn't just want to scrap ROH for good and buy it just so he can highlight Seth's early years or the Owens-Zayn battles.

    What's interesting to me is close to a year ago, Floslam offered an outrageous amount to SBG to stream their product and SBG turned them down. If coach is right and SBG is happy with ROH, i have to feel like something changed. As a overall product, its not lighting the world on fire, doing okay but losing talent left and right and replacing them with old guys is not what ROH is about... Maybe SBG realizes that they are just going to spin their wheels if they try to do their own thing because WWE doesn't want talent working there.. They want you working Evolve.

    But will SBH take less for ROH and really give up? That's the question

    Sinclair is first and foremost a business, so they will always entertain offers. Though they are comfortable with the product, so WWE will need to jump through hoops to make it happen, which they won't, so the stand off will lead nowhere.

    I don't think that Sinclair execs that would be involved with this deal really have their fingers on the pulse on pro wrestling to realize that ROH has changed, or they're losing talent (but always have newer, younger talent on the way up and ready to break through). It's a red/black equation to them. They bought a cheap company that was about to close down to produce content for their affiliates (and possibly for the cable network that they've been trying to purchase and get going for two years). They pumped some money in, made it more financially stable and now they have a profitable division in ROH.

    But, it's about numbers. If WWE offers them a deal that gets them out of ROH at enough of a profit, they'll consider it. The execs aren't marks, they are deeply inerested in the success of ROH, and like the company a lot, but if it wasn't turning a profit it likely wouldn't be that way.

    I personally don't know that WWE would be willing to make an offer of enough money to get control of the the IP and purchase a profit generating division of the company.

    I agree with a lot of what you wrote, TF, but I do think its important to note that Ring of Honor's profitability and NXT's profitability are not necessarily comparable.

    Ring of Honor is Ring of Honor - it is the entirety of the company. NXT is designed and operated as the WWE's farm league the same way Major League Baseball helps subsidize Triple A baseball in the states or the way the NHL probably helps subsize the AHL (I'm not 100% sure on this one, but I think thats the case). Sure, the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Rail Riders don't bring in much cash, but the New York Yankees (who the Rail Riders are an affiliate farm team of) don't necessarily care. Unlike in AAA baseball or the AHL, though, where I'd assume the majority-owner teams don't necessarily pay top dollar for amenities and facilities (but maybe they do), the WWE has invested more into their future in the past 3-4 years than I believe they've ever done before - from production facilities that mirror what the main brands get to state-of-the-art training equipment to hiring coaches and consultants and trainers and everything in between. If the old days of wrestling schools were Rocky running up a mountain in the cold in Rocky IV, the WWE's developmental system has become Ivan Drago's training montage from the same film (save for maybe the steroids I hope).

    In a crazy way, Triple H and the NXT producers selling even a single Tyler Breeze shirt for $20 while he was in NXT could be counted as a profit because most companies wouldn't expect to make any money from their research and development division (which is what NXT is). To make another needless metaphor, its like if you go to college to become a teacher, take out student loans to pay for your schooling, and end up selling your student-teacher lesson plans for side money. It costs you money to be a student-teacher ($15k-25k a year depending on where you go to college), but its an investment in yourself - if you can make $30 on the Teachers Pay Teachers website for some shitty lesson plan you made for your EDU 382 course, its almost something resembling a profit. And that's NXT. It doesn't need to make real money as long as it makes theoretical money. It's playing with house money, low stakes or no stakes, but never high.

    Ring of Honor, though, needs to make real money because it is its own house.

    Is Raw supposed to be a "all hands on deck" show? The go-home show before Mania is always one of the most stacked of the year, but apparently Undertaker might not even be there.

    Even if he's retiring they'd be smart to keep him off TV until the PPV. Keep the questions floating and the speculation building. Him retiring on RAW though effectively seals the deal on Roman as a heel though.
