Not a great week for CZW.

I personally hope the talent sues them into oblivion. It's taken forever for women to be taken seriously in wrestling. CZW wants to go back to the raunchy ads in the middle of Apter mags.

Most of the links are blocked on my work WiFi, but here is one.

Most of it is playing out on Twitter with the girls who were involved.

Per Brad Sheppard, Ricky Starks is no longer with the NWA. This would explain his quick loss of the TV title. 

That sucks for the NWA. That TV Title was perfect for him. Hopefully he is on to bigger and better, or better yet, shows up at a local show near me.

Yikes.

Normally, if Jordynne Grace is out front of something, I cast a side eye as she's a big attention seeker.  LuFisto being the one leading the charge is better IMO.

The documents are pretty damning on their own. don't really need anyone's word, but I agree. And a big fan of Grace, but also agree there as well.

What's amazing is that the sites I go to haven't covered it.  For them, it's a lot easier to be a podcast stenographer or Meltzer re-reporter.

Taeler ( I made up a sexual assault on Jay Lethal) Hendrix is also involved who is usually seeking attention as well. No really sure who LuFisto is. I saw this on Kelly Kliens Twitter feed yesterday and she's usually involved in a lot of drama too.

This is not about deciding if the women involved are "in a lot of drama" or not, or to be dismissed just because you don't know who someone is. CZW has come out and said they have the right to do whatever they want with the footage, they have admitted they are doing what the girls are accusing them of, and there are documents showing that they are going with PPV names such as "CZW Girlz: Top Heavy & Tough" and  "CZW Girlz: Hot & Sweaty".

If a female pro wrestler does a photo shoot, or shows up in Playboy, or even does their own porn videos, that is their right, but these girls were in wrestling matches with the knowledge that is all they were to be, and now are dealing with them being promoted as some kind of soft porn collection. 

Just a poor decision by a company that should know better.

I thought CZW sold rights to PPV's to anther company who was airing this and advertising the women as such? At least thats what I got out of the initial tweet. If thats the case the Girls issues is with the other company not CZW itself.

The "company" that they sold the rights to is under the same corporate umbrella as CZW.

Watched episode two of the doc last night. Really good stuff. Lots of Michelle but that's a good thing. They are a good couple. Him working out in the ring after the hip replacement should be motivation for all us old guys to keep active.

Along the lines of Busted Open Radio, Undertaker does almost 2 hours on Bill Simmons Podcast. Really, really entertaining and they deep dive into his relationship with Vince and how he felt about the Montreal Screwjob (Spoiler: he was pissed and felt if Vince had come to him they could have figured out a different path, but also admits it shot up the WWF's popularity)

Not sure how much more of Bubba's glad handing WWE these days will do. He must know his time in ROH isn't gonna last much longer and glad-handing WWE to make sure he has a job to go back too. I also hate how he talks down to the fans on social media who disagree with him. Acts like because a lot of us never were in the business we shouldn't have an opinion. He gets offended pretty easily too. 

However on the contrary How he handled that fan last year was pretty cool. From a few people I still know in ROH there were multiple witnesses both nights with similar stories on the fan. Dude was your typical "wanted to be the show take attention away from what was going on in the ring" and crossed several lines. Matt Taven privately accused the dude of spitting on him. All I got to say is thank god for PC culture if I were this fan. If this was ECW back in the day the boys in the back with Atlas Security would've given him a real hard time. He should consider himself lucky.

Funny story I belonged to facebook Eagles chat group my cousin had invited me too. Great knowledge able guys. Shared a few things from my co workers son (he's one of the assistant coaches) and I knew 2 former local players (one is from my township but went to one of the academy HS) in the group and some other stuff. They apparently booted me for sharing stories".  

Not the first time this happen. A wrestling group I was in (Joined when I was suspended from here back in march)  I shared a few source info I had. I had contacted 2 admins early on in my time as I noticed one of the posters was posting articles to what I found out was his own website and per group rules there is no posting of advertising your business unless approved. I contacted one admin who I noticed was fairly local to me (hr drive away) and asked him. He said he didn't hear anything so I reported multiple articles. Another admin got involved asked me to stop reporting and had me muted. When I told her what happened she unmuted me. Then found out from the guy who ran the site he allowed the dude to but didn't tell any of the other admins. This group who has a dirstsheet site is so poorly run. I was in a debate with one of the other members and posted some of my source stuff as I do here on there. Well apparently one guy who claims he knows people got offended by some stuff I posted. I got a pretty offensive/reprehensible message on my facebook messenger from the guy and then he blocks me like the coward he is. I reported this to facebook itself and the admin I had befriended who was local. He banned the guy from the group. A few days later got a message from the admin saying to join a group he had created when he use to podcast wrestling news and info. He said main guy was gonna ban me and unbanned the dude who made threats to me. Banned the admin from the group hadn't gotten rid of me yet. I contacted the creator of the group and asked to get his side of the story. I've yet to receive word so usually no response means its true. I asked the guy in a polite manner if we could discuss this issue like adults and work something out if theres an issue with me in the group. Put myself out there and said hey how can we fix this if true. I took this to my co worker who took it to his production buddies. One of them reported to WWE relations of media and they are in the process of investigating these people. If they find they were in the wrong they will have all their credentials from WWE media permanently banned. I won't give the name of the site as I don't want to give them traffic because its not really a major site. Only been running for a few years

That makes more sense then. I was under the impression it was a separate corporation. I haven't heard anything but I saw my coworker today who knows more people there then I ever would and forgot to ask him about this. Not sure if he'd have any insider info from friends what is going on nor do I know if anyone would talk. Best for anyone in the company right now not too.

Another great Dark Side of the Ring. Show is so FN good. In comparison to the actual wrestling product today, you're actually wanting more. Big fan of Martha and Oje :thumbup:  Jericho is tremendous narrating.

Not surprised about Ricky Starks leaving. Commented when the show started they'd have a heck of a time keeping him with as young and talented as he is. NWA had him positioned great as the TV champ/opening type act.

Agree the Taker episodes have been good. WWE does a great job with their documentaries.

I know that it's more of Lagreca's opinion and how he talks down to fans who disagree with him. Also he picks some weird things to defend on WWE's part.

Going back to this Lance is incredible humble person. He truly appreciates what he does. TV doesn't do him justice in terms of his size and athleticism. I suggest anyone who wants to know more about Lance or just wants to watch him if you have a chance to watch him wrestle live please do so. You'll really learn to respect and appreciate this guy way more. Like I said I met him in Philly and he was with Mikey Nichols  Former TM61 Nick Miller. Lance was awesome to talk too and I bought a shirt off of him too. We really hit it off in terms chemistry speaking to one another.

Should be laws on cyber bullying if someone commits suicide because of you, you should be charged.

Stadium Stampede match taped early this morning.

Quote

The match itself with feature a ring on the 50-yard line, and will be Falls Count Anywhere / No DQ. It was taped overnight and finished at 5 am this morning, according to PWInsider, and internally the company is excited for what was put together.

The decision to tape was to avoid dead air as the wrestlers made their ways to different parts of the stadium. A lot of fun, creative things are said take place during the match, possibly some cameo appearances.

I'm curious about who the cameos are.

Part 3 of the Taker doc was connecting the dots. Seeing who was at the dinner table with the Saudis was wild. The DX match was a train wreck. 

Gotta wait three weeks to see the next part.

That was about a few months ago. Cage under went Pect or Shoulder surgery before debuting but was already signed so she had to deny it
