WWE want the original NWO of Hulk Hogan, Scott Hall and Kevin Nash to headline the 2020 Hall of Fame Class

All three men are already Hall of Famers in their own right, but the NWO faction certainly deserves recognition for kicking off the hottest period in the history of the business. No question.

https://talksport.com/sport/wwe/579073/wwe-original-nwo-hulk-hogan-scott-hall-kevin-nash-2020-hall-of-fame-class/


The full nWo induction will include Fake Sting, Horace Hogan, Midajah, and Mike Wallstreet, or we riot.


Sounds just as boring as having DX headline this year's. But with the added toxicity of Hulk Hogan, who's more popular than ever!

This company really has its finger on the pulse.*








*of The Undertaker and several other WWE legends to make sure they will be able to wrestle a few more matches for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Just about the only sin you can't lay on WWE's head for those Saudi Arabia shows is making Undertaker shamble through one more No Stars For Old Men match.

The Saudis ask for the few superstars whose names they recognize. That means they're weak on anything post-Sunny. So if they want to pay $89 million to see that new rookie sensation Yokozuna, why shouldn't they call the guy who played Hurley on "Lost" and ask him how much he wants to grunt in Japanese?

They don't even have to wash the blood off the money, because it's all digital now. (Unlike Jamal Khashoggi, after they sawed off his fingers.)

"To give you an example of Vince's promo classes; he had Wade Barrett and Sheamus stand up in front of every wrestler and producer, and he looks at them both and goes, 'You're a dog. You're a dog. Now make me wanna watch you fight.' The room is dead quiet. It's so quiet that after a full minute, Sheamus said, 'I think I'm having an out of body experience.' Doesn't know he said it. The whole room goes crazy. Vince yells, 'YOU'RE A DOG!' Both get quiet again. Wade Barrett is the courageous one. He thought he was supposed to be a dog. So he barked," recalled Prinze Jr. "Vince jumps up, flips a table over, and goes, 'AH, DAMNIT!' and storms out. I go up to Vince after and say, 'Maybe I can take over the promo class because I think I can speak the language you're speaking and then translate it to them.' And he handed me the promo class."


Maybe this explains why Vince has Cole say "THE BIG DOG!!!!" so often.

He always covered his bases by also referring to everyone as "dude". He had to know this was a possibility.

This is why I could never be trusted as a wrestling promoter. Sure, I might talk a big game about how those old ways of the business are outdated and need to die. But if Gus Kantarakis' kid comes looking for a job, yep, I'm pushing him to the moon purely on nostalgia for his dad jobbing to Damian Demento and the Steiner Brothers in the Manhattan Center.

I'm not saying WWE is in huge trouble and that AEW is gonna become 1996 WCW next year or anything, but I do think it's not a great sign for the company if WWE, of all promotions, has trouble selling out MSG and the only person to get a genuinely big reaction on the show is Stone Cold Steve Austin.

This same story was reported by numerous websites last week:

Vince McMahon apparently being convinced to not push Baron Corbin

And so, last night:


The XFL can't come fast enough.

Ya have to laugh, folks.

Also, was that a genuine or ironic pro-Corbin chant in MSG?

Only The Shadow knows.

The Shadow is Jordan Myles' new gimmick when he gets called up to SmackDown this fall.

Weezer and WWE have a lot in common.

I was really into both when I was a teenager, they have a similar =w= logo, they have a surprisingly consistent fanbase, they both reference pro wrestling and they were both a lot more interesting as a product and better in 1996.

WWE doesn't care about that little company with those Elite guys.

They ALWAYS had a 2-hour episode of NXT with a Takeover-quality card and "limited commercial interruptions" planned for the first Wednesday of October 2019 FOREVER AGO.

Business actually might damn sure pick up here. We're live, pals.

Didn't see the show, but my friend who watches every damn thing emailed me that last night's Hell in a Cell ended with the crowd hate-chanting "AEW! AEW!"

Turns out that booking a DQ finish in a "No Disqualifications" match maybe isn't such a hot idea.

So don't miss tonight's Raw, where you''ll hear those AEW chants loud and clear in the video package.

People were so mad at last night's ending that when they watch tonight it's going to be a hate watch . That'll teach 'em.

Anyway, Brutus Beefcake appeared as Zodiac in Mr. Nanny. This movie was made years before Hogan or Beefcake were in WCW. That character was years in the making.

The good news for WWE is that less people hate-watched RAW than last week.

The bad news for WWE is that less people watched RAW than last week.

When WWE wasn't booking a referee's stoppage in a No Disqualification match, they also booked the 24/7 champion into a tag match where they said the 24/7 was not at stake.

Just a little temporary hiatus. For the 24... 7... title.

Totally impartial newsperson & guy who has a move named after him in AEW Dave Meltzer suggested that this week would likely be a bloodbath in the ratings (referring to AEW beating NXT). I didn't see Gangrel on either show unfortunately so I'm going to say he was wrong. Meltzer being inaccurate about WWE news (RUSEV, LANA, REVIVAL, HARPER, RUSH, ZIGGLER, ANDERSON & GALLOWS, SASHA) is honestly kind of shocking to me.

I know this board hasn't had a post in over 2 weeks because everybody has been holding their breath, but you can relax now. Randy Orton has re-signed.

I'm nearly caught up to Week Two of the Raw/AEW/Smackdown/NXT televisual barrage.

Except for 25% of Raw and AEW, 90% of Smackdown and 100% of NXT.

Also, is New Japan airing fresh episodes? If so, add them.

Someone posted an auto-start video on Facebook, showing a cat attacking another cat by sliding across the floor on its back and unexpectedly taking out the other cat's legs. So add that.

AEW and NXT have been great. Impact has continued its surprisingly-watchable-and-consistently-solid run. NJPW is still doing its thing.

If Raw and Smackdown got cancelled, I'd be shocked but I'd also breathe a sigh of relief.

I've got all of them, including NXT, saved on demand. But the supply of my time does not measure up to the demand.

It used to be a challenge just to keep abreast of "The Monday Night Wars," but now it's getting close to an entire Monday.

If you don't have room in your life for Tyson Fury magically deciding to be friends with Braun Strowman and facing off against Curtis Axel & Bo Dallas, then YOU'RE the one who's inhuman.

I liked Santino Marella. But the one thing I didn't appreciate was his selfish unprofessionalism.

Specifically, the way Marella always undersold to make his opponents look ineffective and bad.

There are YouTube montages of The Rock taking the Stone Cold Stunner with ever ridiculouser and ridiculouser verve.

Apparently it was a quest with him, and Rock wouldn't be satisfied until he managed to bounce and flip in a manner that Bugs Bunny would have rejected as cartoonish and unrealistic.

Ha ha ha, "Raw" just aired a promo for their "WWE Backstage" FS1 show, with a graphic showing just two of its hosts: Booker T and Renee Young.

They must not have any good photos of the new guy.
