Ok why is Gargano Johnny Takeover when Balor has a better W/L then Gargano. Balor is 9-1 and been NXT champion the longest ever. Gargano is a poor man's Daniel Bryan

I think you're a bit rough on Johnny...  Finns finisher looks like one of the most painful to take.  Doesn't seem like there's any kafabing that one

Don't think so. I don't see him as anything special. He was In some smaller promotions but never did ROH or anything like that. Not saying thats an end all be all but NXT is his first large promotion. He did Dragon Gate and Evolve but I consider those really minor. And Gargano's move set is fairly vanilla. Plus his character in NXT was a complete rip off of Daniel Bryan in WWE when going for the title without the added authority figure holding him back.

Charlotte looking pretty hot in all black.

Sasha Banks has a part in The Mandalorian season 2. Cool.

Yeah Charlotte was a lot hotter before all the surgery. I really hate when a girl naturally good looking goes and screws her body up. Megan Fox did the same thing to her face and I hated it

Must be nice being Sasha. Throw a complete 5 year old temper tantrum with Bailey at Mania because of losing the titles, she gets a few months off work and comes back and is literally being handed everything. I think more wrestlers in the company should pull that and if they don't get what they want they can all point to Sasha. I hate awarding people for that kind of behavior. I'm cool with standing up for yourself and your morals and I'm cool with Punk simple walking out since he knew he wasn't coming back. But in Sasha and Bailey's case there are better ways to handle that

We got to start this feud again? It was a good feud but it went stale

That might be one of WWE's most avg Takeovers. Best match was the first match of the night. Women's street Fight was the best one out of the no DQ matches of the Women's division in some time. The #### finish at the end is a clear ratings move by NXT/Vince too AEW. I thought Ciampa/Gargano was a good feud but this doing the complete opposite of the first Gargano doesn't come off as a believable heel and I feel the feud went stale and ran its corse. Charlotte going after the NXT Women's title predictable. NXT is trying to get ratings to combat AEW so Vince might be more into letting stars who were in NXT to go back. Kind of disappointing night. Nothing too memorable

I'd be weary of SRS reporting it but if it's coming from Satin maybe who works with WWE but I've heard ants to try and keep the names under raps.

He mentioned something last week about DBS going in. Apparently WWE is trying to Resign Harry again (Lance Archers old Tag partner in Suzuki Gun and former WWE Hart Foundation) and trying to work something out with the family. Then Meltzer today and others tried to steal Brad's report and not credit him with it. 

Speaking of Sheppard he may have exposed a pedophile who was trolling him that twitter has banned the dudes account multiple times for other violations. Interesting thread on it too.

I definitely think Cole/Paige will split but I'm gonna say they twist this in the turn. We all think Paige is gonna turn but what if Omega Turns and becomes his The Cleaner Character? It'd be a big time twist in it. Paige seems more of a loner type character wise. Seems heelish but not really a heel. Omega turning would make big headlines too

It is fantastic. They really need to up the theme music game, though.

I think it was going to be Page from the get-go, but he got over.

When someone gets over, ride the horse you came in on. Hangman stays baby as the outlaw.

WWE apparently is feeding fake news to people to weed out those sharing with dirt sheets and reporters. After the Matt Riddle report of don't call out a superstar on another brand or higher up and the Brock stuff WWE had a meeting with talent and told them don't talk to reporters or dirt sheet people. Just stay in character with them. WWE is trying to stop leaks. Hence all the rumors recently of certain talent failing a wellness test.

Not sure what you mean. He never really had an inside source. If you know how to bet wrestling the smart money if a leak had come out a few hours or an hour before showtime the moneyline would have a huge swing to one person. Like a few mania's ago for Undertaker and I think HHH it was. He would get lucky with the betting odds. Then when he missed a few people started turning on him. He was a fraud who claimed to have insider info but was just good with betting odds. He kept the schtick going on twitter for a few of the dummies who still followed him. His last tweet from the account he used was in 2015 when he disappeared. There are a few other accounts similar but I think they are all fake.

Getting this from a few different places and one person a freelance Journalist (Who's broke some past news) who I follow. So comfortable sharing this. 

Matt Hardy has RENEWED his WWE deal. Sources tell me he’s going to the creative team and retire from full time competition for now. Broken Matt will be featured in his YouTube series as producers are allowed to do some work outside WWE.

Also I missed this from the freelance guy I followed but Impact was really considering keeping their title on Calahan until Tessa Apologized. It sounds like she admitted privately to the roster what she's been accused of is true 

Per sources, Tessa Blanchard held a private meeting with African American members of the Impact roster to apologize for the allegations levied against her. Impact apparently was set to have Sami Callihan retain at #HardToKill ,but Tessa's showing of remorse changed that.

I could see sharing the PPV right with ESPN+ along with the Network (kind of like how they handle NXT), but can't see how they remove PPVs from the Network.

Was trying to do the math to see if moving the entire WWE Network under the ESPN+ banner would work, but I don't think it does. WWE has roughly 2 million subscribers right now, at 10 bucks a pop. $20 million a month in revenue if my math is close. ESPN+ has 6.6 million subscribers a month, at 5 bucks a pop, $33 million a month taken in. ESPN couldn't hand over enough revenue to WWE to make the move worth it, at the current sub prices.
