  1. Dixie had to beg her father for money for that company, he wanted nothing to do with wrestling. The Khans are different.

  2. Yeah, TNA was a toy that Bob Carter bought for his idiot daughter to keep her away from the real business, because he didn't have the balls to tell his middle-aged child "no." I don't think the Khans are the same.

  3. To be honest, the reason why TNA/Impact Wrestling ended up the way it did was because of Dixie Carter and her horrible mismanagement (although Hogan and Eric Bischoff did help speed things up) and by the time that Dixie was ousted, the damage was done.

    TNA has had a lot of awesome talent, but they ended up the lolcow of pro wrestling solely because of Dixie Carter and Vince Russo. Hogan and Bischoff did make some pretty bad moves for the company, but all they did was throw gasoline onto an already burning tire fire.

    Also, TNA formed barely a year after WCW died. Jeff Jarrett honestly was in over his head at the time he founded TNA, which is why he turned to Dixie Carter. Also, while Vince Russo was disliked back in 2002, he wasn't quite the pariah in the wrestling business that he is now. So Jarrett hiring Russo as a booker in the early days of TNA could easily be an honest mistake, but Dixie's continual employment of him until it cost TNA the Spike TV deal helped bury the promotion.

    AEW doesn't have these problems. The Khans actually are interested in wrestling and Rhodes is smart enough not to hire people like Russo or Bischoff.

    I don't think AEW will be able to compete with WWE the way WCW did in the 90's, but I think it certainly has the potential to be a more viable alternative to WWE than ROH or Impact.

  4. There was more of a problem with Hogan than Bischoff. Hogan wanted all of his old mates there. Nash was already there and Hall was there before so that would have been good enough for Bischoff. Hogan however wanted the Nasty Boys when only one of them could wrestle, he wanted his daughter there when she couldn't even sell her body let alone sell out an arena. Then there's the whole Bubba and Kong shit that happened. Aces and Eights was fine, but then Hogan wanted his daughter in that angle and that killed it (thank god Luke went on to something better before being buried and forgotten by the WWE). You also have Ric Flair going to the company and how expensive he is. Orlando Jordan (should I mention more on that?).

  5. Oh yeah, there's lots of possibilities for AEW to be a successful company running for an indeterminate amount of time, but the idea that they would put WWE out of business is crazy.

    Maybe five to ten years from now WWE keeps sinking and AEW has a meteoric rise they could be on similar levels.

    Even if WWE stopped producing new content today they could just coast on reselling their existing video library and nostalgia shit for the old stuff.

  6. That's the thing. WWE today might be shit, but what they have is brand recognition. If you tell someone about TNA/ROH/NJPW/AEW no one knows what you talk about. But when you name WWE, most people immediatly remember guys like Hulk Hogan, Randy Savage, Undertaker, The Rock, Steven Austin, etc.

    AEW has no history or brand recognition whatsoever. The only people that know are the ones that are really into Wrestling. Once they manage to get a casual audience, then we can talk about competition.

  7. As much as people loathe it there's a shitton of money made by Sally Soccermom buying little Jimmy t-shirts and action figures and there's something to having WWE talent as the most requested people kids want to see as their make-a-wish.

    Would Warrior have been worth his own thread back when he was alive? Probably, if you ask me. Iirc, there was a rumor floating around that Warrior was going broke around the time the WWE 2k offer came in, and that's the main reason he took it and even accepted an induction into the hall of fame. Might have been from his brother, I'm not sure on the details. WWE also had to undo the work they did with that Self-Destruction of Ultimate Warrior DVD.

  14. Between this, "put that cigarette out" at Rumble 92, being the interviewer for Booker T's infamous "We come fo you N****" promo, and the "F*** It" moment at Summerslam 89, I think its safe to say that Mean Gene has the greatest bloopers in the history of the business under his belt, and he wasn't even a wrestler.

    Thanks for everything Mean Gene. You were a treasure and a half.

  17. Ironic, considering what was found on one of his old online accounts. He was known as ElPerfecto (the perfect one) and Disenfranchised.

  18. He was a member of the bodybuilding.com forums so exceptional comments are to be expected.

  19. ROH signed Rush to an exclusive deal, ruining MLW running Rush/Park and probably at least half of the shit Park was going to do across the USA this year.

    Fuck ROH.

  20. Source: https://twitter.com/ringofhonor/status/1085280641418186753

    And now a little tale that I heard from /wooo/ and SquaredCircle. Last year, MLW's Court Bauer had gone on a podcast to shit talk ROH management. According to Court, ROH's booker, Delirious, was responsible for their commentator, Kevin Kelly, leaving the company. He also felt like Kevin Sullivan being there threatened his position, so Sullivan was told he was no longer needed. Since those communities I mentioned have some folks who hate Delirious and his booking of ROH, those people ate Court Bauer's words all up, like they were gospel.

    Anyways, I was going to go on a long rant about Bauer being suspected of starting shit with Impact Wrestling as well, and how those stories of his are questionable but tl;dr - Bauer talks a lot of shit, and it looks like he finally got hit by ROH, who now forced him to cancel MLW's planned Rush vs LA Park match.
