Rumour Crap 2017: PT 2

With Rick being MIA of late (hope all is well)- figured I'd kick off a part two as part one is now over the 1000 post mark, and he's suggested on a few occasions that once a thread eclipses 1000 post mark it has a way of potentially mucking up the site; So with that...

Can't recall any major dangling "news" or rumours from the last thread, so to kick it off:

*Aside from the already snowballing story about backstage bullying in WWE locker rooms over the years, there was apparently a major news outlet which was working on a lead piece about the subject, which is why the WWE settled with Mauro so quickly, and the need for him to publicly absolve JBL of any wrong doing or part in his leaving. There is a hint that as so many interviews were already done said unnamed news outlet may still run the story. There is said to be some frustration with Mauro for publicly absolving the WWE as this was seen as a chance for major changes to the culture of the WWE to take place.

*Despite the acrimonious departure of Mauro from the WWE, there is rumoured to be a chance that he could be again employed by the WWE in the future as he played ball with them (Money probably helps) and the WWE could look to use Mauro as a public face to some positive PR about how supporting they are about mental illness.

*Mrs. Matt Hardy Reby has tweeted that the rumour about the WWE trying to intercede on Matt's behalf and obtain the rights to the "Broken" gimmick are 100% false, and has thrown out the suggestion that this rumour is a Jarrett/TNA tactic to make it appear as if they are in a position of power in setting the terms for the characters ownership.

*Some current WWE talent, and a few alumni are jumping on the bandwagon and poking fun at the Great Balls of Fire name that has been affixed to the WWE's next PPV.

Rick has only been "gone" since Tuesday evening. He started both the Raw and SD threads this week.

Rick will come back. We'll cheer. We'll say "Rick, they said you was hung!". And Rick will say "and they was right!".





You know, everyone says it's not supposed to make sense, like that's the whole point, dude. And I'm just saying, you know, that's like an excuse for lazy storytelling. Just don't sell me shite and tell me it's gold, all right? I might be stoned, but I'm not high. You know what I mean?

You forgot to add what he said right before he says, "...they said you was hung."

Lol, oops... I saw a couple of posts in the last rumour thread that made it sound like he'd been gone for a bit; my bad.

He has this adorable trait of saying how he refrains from being successfully baited by "trolls" and then repeatedly taking the bait.

Which of course means that I must forever bait.

"Forever bait" is, of course, janerd's term for AJ Lee.

I must conclude, my fellow canucklehead, that we have vastly different definitions of the term. I will canadianly & respectfully accept our differences. Here's a beer of your choice.

I'm not sure if this major news outlet is aware but it's THE FUCKING WRESTLING BUSINESS. Hulk Hogan got his leg broken in the ring by a trainer. Haku ripped a guy's freakin' eyeball out! To say it's ingrained in the culture would be an understatement. These are aggro dudes that are paid to act like they're beating the shit out of each other and have historically battled any number of demons outside the ring. Even though I assume we've gotten past the days of guys, say, openly doing blow or shooting steroids in the locker room, I'm also pretty sure it's gonna have a bit of a different work culture than Google. If you don't think you're cut out for that, maybe, you know, don't work there.





"Hulk Hogan have the sex with some dumb bitch on the TV. The girl smart if she make the $$ from his bald ass but she also desperate to have sex with the howdy doody like Hulk Hogan. He worse than Mel Gibson and I think now %10000 he prove he have grasshopper dick and raisin balls." - The Iron Sheik

The stupid part about it is that if WWE had left the idiot hijinks inside the locker room where the guys could torment each other all they wanted then no one would really care. What makes this thing with Mauro, and Justin Roberts and presumably Lilian Garcia too, media-noticeable is that the bullying bullshit got extended outside of the circle of jocks to other personnel that have no way of fighting back against someone the size and physical shape of a JBL. Except for Joey Styles getting that lucky shot in on JBL and putting him on his ass, the others have either been fired or quit. And that's classic bullying right there. It's not trash-talking or even wrassler's court between two equally skilled opponents, where the target isn't going to be condemned by the other guys if he lays some asshole out. It's when someone with superior size and strength goes after someone who has zero chance of being able to fight back.

Leave the non-wrestling personnel out of this equation and no one cares at all. It then falls into the category of idiots hazing each other, not assault. JBL goes stiff on someone inside the ring as punishment? Then whoever he's doing that too can clock him one with an elbow of their own. The rest of the guys, and even crazy old Vince too, will be impressed and just go "ahh, leave him alone, he's got balls and is one of us now". Do some kind of backstage torment to someone like Lilian, just after her dad died? That's something only a lousy grade-A son of a bitch who should've been murdered long ago would do, and the ones standing around letting it happen (Vince, Dunn, Hunter, Steph) are just as equally shitty for not doing something about it.

goon said this in the now-locked thread

I kinda skimmed over the last couple of pages, but did royberto ever produce any specific examples of people here bitching about Orton/Wyatt being a foregone conclusion and then those same people also bitching about it being a non-title match? Or is this like a Trump "I'm gonna make an accusatory statement and then not back it up with any facts" situation?





If you had skimmed gooder, you would have noted me already drawing that parallel and thus calling him Trumpberto

What he said.

The bad thing about SD on Tuesdays is that it can make for some serious viewing fatigue when all your wrestling happens back-to-back(-to back, on PPV weekends). But the good thing is that it makes the "wrestling week" much shorter, with less reason to ponder the squared circle in the interregnum.

It wasn't me that was MIA, it was the A itself.

That said, well done on the new thread. I had made a mental note that Part 1 was at nine-ninety-something on Tuesday, but forgot to follow-up with it.

I object to this entire thread due to the fact that rumor was spelled "rumour".

Breaks from the Internets can be a good thing, especially given how combative people tend to be on social media. Presenting an opinion online these days is essentially asking for an argument.

Fuck that! No one argues on the internet! Let's fight! Now I need to go wrap myself into the warm blanket of the Breitbart comments section until America recovers.

In random ass news, Billy Corgan has bought the NWA.

The only sensible decision there is to give the NWA Belt to Cody and have him tour around the World defending it.

* Sean Waltman no-showed an event in England on the weekend because he got arrested at LAX; no word yet on what charges he's facing but apparently it's a felony; he was released on $35K bail after about 18 hours in lock-up; best smark comment about this incident was seen on 411Mania with a "him trying to shit in someone's luggage obviously didn't go as planned" narrowly nudging out "it's not 1998 anymore, you can't give suck it signs to TSA" in the early running.
