All these computers mixers computers three cameras four cameras lights. It's crazy here lance. Yeah the the lights really do it. I've got the doors shut the windows shut and nothing making noise so it's really hot and all your white skin needs is an even brighter light shining straight on your head. Yes I <hes>. Maybe I need some. I'm probably too late for the hymns for me. I've got no hair on top at all so we're getting a glare. You never know if you're too late lance. It's never too late to try anyway so we got a lot to get into you today. Yes if you'd like to check out Lance later on today videoed Rhode affordably online dot com for the video version of this show and I presume you talked about this yesterday. I didn't have a chance to listen to the Gym Valley show. I know that you had any story about Harley race that you said that you were going to tell on the air with me and hey you're on the air with me right now. So let's Talk Harley Race Yeah Yeah. I think it was the only time I actually met him in person. We were doing either T._v. Or how show with W._B. I don't remember which and he was backstage and he was holding court talking to half a dozen people and I was there listening to him and one of the security guys came up and he taps me on the shoulder and him what he's like. Who is that. Is he supposed to be back here. I just looked at him and I'm like dude. That's Harley race. He's supposed to be wherever he damn. Well pleases. The guy's like really. I'm like just leave them alone. Let them do what he wants the the <hes> the said. I think you need to go. Check that man yeah because it was you know eighteen years ago. He would've had a hard time throwing Harley race of wrestling show. That's for sure all right so cody. Rhodes tweeted at tickets have sold out. Thank you all so much. He wrote Eddie added. Do not give up hope about being there live. We should be lifting potential. Camera production holds as we get closer to the event. Keep checking out a w ticks DOT DOT COM and by the way if anybody who listened to this right now happen to go to the building on Friday and get tickets or Saturday because it would have been Saturday ready if you managed to do that. Let me know because people saying that it was possible to do that but I didn't get it confirmed. I was told and please. I'm not certain certain this is the actual number I was told that there may be between two and three thousand tickets that end up being released after they figure out the production of the event so there will be some more tickets available as cody noted here. I don't know when but there will be nine thousand. Two hundred tickets were sold over the first two hours a numbers. We got from A._W._S. Over ten thousand sold on the first day. This is the very first television show this is history. Lance your thoughts on another another A._W._S. Sellout I'm not really surprised I was in the camp. You were that you know. This is the first one you know it's a historic thing you take it to the first nitro. which was everybody at that? Mall but you know they've they've got a loyal fan base. They're very keen eager to hit these big shows and this is a big one you you know. I don't think episode two three four. Five and six are going to sell ten thousand seats but again they've they've. They've <hes> overachieved with everything else but I'm not surprised that it sold out <hes> it. It's it's crazy but you know more power to them. They've got momentum and it's best to capitalize on Roman reigns. It's been about an hour ago tweeted at this time. I think the smackdown life incident was a mistake by the crew which I love and respect. I respect the machine and the team that builds holds. It and I understand that mistakes happen so if you've not been paying attention everybody they did a preposterous angle at the end of smackdown but Roman ranges inches sauntering on over for an interview is gonNA announce his Summer Slam opponent which first off it's like why I got so many things I gotta say but anyway bunch of stuff falls over nearly kills him but then two seconds later he's fine and he just walks off like with no concern whatsoever however like he's a little weirded out a bunch of crap fell on him but it doesn't seem concerned that somebody tried to kill him so a couple days later they announced that they didn't investigation and and it was a errand forklift operator or forklift operator screwed up or something like that and then they added the end. We don't know who the forklift operator was us and it's like okay. I got fifty questions number one. Why is Roman reigns just going to randomly announce a name same for an opponent. It's it's summer slam. He was announcing challenge. WHO'S GONNA challenged challenged. Somebody like that earlier in the show. I tough second-half. Why wasn't he prepared for this. He was he was walking fifty yards to get Kayla at the end of the show second wiser dude at a forklift moving stuff backstage day Jr right around where you're going to do an interview. Why do they not know who this guy is and then the more serious questions why why do we not have a program for Roman reigns until the go home show for Summer Slam because Summer Slam is Sunday and they haven't announced anything yet so if they're doing Daniel Bryan mean like they could've done angles or shot in angle or announce Daniel Bryan versus Roman reigns three weeks ago but instead they had one week of Daniel Bryan teasing announcement unique a second week of teasing announcement that he didn't make and then stuff fell on Roman reigns at now on on the go home show. You're going to just randomly announce on the final show that it's Daniel Bryan Roman reigns at Summer Slam what's going on here. I don't know what's going on. Although I don't have a problem with the timeframe really you know we've talked a lot about you know if they have too long to build something thing you Kinda lose anticipation because there's all these physical altercations and ticket wise. The event is sold out. I believe so at that point. It's just you know people wanting to watch on the network so as long as they hook you at the last minute doesn't matter so from a business standpoint. I don't care but the I guess the forklift thing away to drop the Angler. Is that part of the story. I don't know I I have no idea like I thought it was part of the story but then when they did this weird announcement that it was just like a crew member screwed up and Roman reigns of Paul I mean maybe they saw it and saw a stupid. It was and are dropping. I honestly don't no no and I know people there who don't know what's going on and they should. It reminds me of remember when they had an. I don't know what they're doing haunting angler not but they did. They did a thing years ago. Go where you know. Lights went off backstage like an explosion or short circuit and then there was like the whole set fell on Vince. I think at one point in time you remember this because it was the big thing when you know I vaguely remember the hunter. was there trying to lift you know all of the big E. Tron set off him. I think Vince called him Paul to to make us. You know more believe that it's real. It's vaguely remember this. This is what it felt like to me when it fell on him. I'm like okay okay 'cause I don't remember was was that when was that the build up to the blowing up the limo and then they had to drop the whole angle may the bid tragic. Maybe this is someone remembered. We had this great angle of who done it with someone trying to kill. Vince and they're doing with Roman. I don't know I'm guessing okay but if anybody remembers I remember that I don't remember the timing what was the angle where stuff fell on Vince and it was it just prior to dilemma blowing up angle. You may be right. We'll we'll get an answer here soon. I'm sure but it's it. That's the first thing I thought of when that stuff N._F._L. On him was I remember when it happened to Vince and <hes> it was a big deal and I don't remember whether it was <hes> reviewed favourably or not at the time because it was like the whole vote in front of the fans like the Big Titan tron thing fell over. I think the prisoner is Dan Bryan getting squashed by Roman. It's summer slam as weekday. Daniel Bryan deserves a primary spot. We don't even know what they're doing. I mean honest to God listen if if they're shooting angle five days before the show and it's their first ever match I mean my guess is that this is going to be a program. It's GonNa go more than one match approach now. I would say that because of that. I expect Daniel Bryan the he'll to win the first contest but it's W._W._e. And I've seen like five thousand programs where for whatever reason the baby face wins the first match and then like we're supposed to care about subsequent matches Nafta shoots awesome angles try and make us care again so I can't say for sure but we'll see we'll see yes. We shouldn't assume that it's going to be a squash match. That's with Daniel Bryan yet.

You're listening to wrestling observer live with Bryan Alvarez and Mike Simple v on the sports byline broadcasting network show Brian Alvarez here wrestling observer live Lindstrom joining us here today. Versus Lance is talking about the million dollar mania. It was different than the limo just a way the to end the idea of giving away a million dollars a week. Do you remember what he was doing that. I remember because that's when he got rick rolled when he was doing the right light yellow to to give away a million dollars a week so that's why he was on stage when it all came down. I guess that's how they kill the angle. They killed him for a while now. Vince it was giving away his millions when stuff fell on him so there you go is that right around the time that they brought in trump. Remember trump started dropping money any from the ceiling and that's what led to the battle of the billionaires that was when he bought raw. Wasn't it about Ron. This shareholders like freaked out so they had to do angle handlery. Vince brought it back or back or whatever all right. Let's go to the <hes> phones. You're on the air. What's going on Brian according to you to that. Vince McMahon Incident happened on June twenty four two thousand eight. I can send you the video where he falls off. The station. Equipment falls on top of them. Okay hold on the incident happened on June twenty four th or that's when the incident was uploaded because June twenty four hundred ten thousand eight twenty four thousand eight so okay he's Zaka the trump deal okay excellent questions for Lance Storm. He knows the answer not he's out to be a little bit predicting but up his wrestling school were he's the students go and do you think they'll get to impact wrestling because it's canadian-based rethink that need to get it. Awa because they'll need a lot of bodies though T._V. or you go to us because of three well I have lots of students trion and they'll all end up in different places and you know well impact. They all have ended up in different places. Anthem is a Canadian based company but they still do a a large portion of their T._v. in the U._S. so it's not like it's a Canadian only company but yeah the unlike any school. The vast majority of students will stay on the the indies and I've got students that have made it pretty much everywhere so I don't think there's a a single destination for anyone and dude. I don't know how many more people A._W._S. GONNA sign nine like how many bodies Dezei promotion need. I mean W we has way more bodies in there ever going to use I mean they're overflowing with talent and as a result a lot of that talent doesn't even get utilized. I mean A._W._S. signed a lot of people and they have a talent budget and I. I don't know how close they are to hitting that talent budget but I'm not sure how many more people are going to be signed if they've got quite a roster at this point already W._b. Has Komo Four television shows if you consider raw smackdown and X T in Annex T U K. They've AWA has one. They don't need as many bodies for says yes J._R. Jared podcast recently talked about stuff falling on Vince. It definitely was the million dollar giveaway ending so I don't know it was Roman giving away away a million dollars. Is that playing into the story right here. I tweeted my idea yesterday ideas that his car because he said he kept saying it's a career altering bring a career changing announcement so my idea was he was changing careers. He was going to become a forklift operator and he was out there and something went wrong. He almost killed Roman reigns on accident and so on Tuesday. He'll announce I quit. I'm going back to being a wrestler Slower Allen. A face Roman reigns at Summer Slam. That's why I think this is going. That's how you save the single. Hell of an angle yes those I think those forklifts are battery operated that it probably be more environmentally conscious which is why Daniel Bryan decided to drive one dude. Maybe he had an electric forklift well. I think they all are fatter. They don't plug them in drag a court. I got it all right. Let's go to the phones. During the O'Brien Healy I just wanted to call and actually just ask lanes day in on <hes> <hes> <hes> it ended the episodes from last faith with <hes> with Gary Brian but <hes> to jump on the union talk <hes> that gear broke up brought up to Brian Glances opinion of how he would handle that okay I haven't. I haven't heard Garrett's take yet but I've said this a long time but I think if W._B._Z. Is ever going to be unionized. It's GonNa be through Sag the screen actors guild yet because they're a weekly episodic television show so I would think that that would be the way if if it's ever going to happen. I don't think it's ever going to happen in my lifetime. I don't either I mean I think I've been. I've been saying this never going to happen and since like nineteen ninety five when I first started this. It's just never going to happen. I mean that's it. It's just always been such an individually early minded sport like the boys have always looked after their own business so to speak and I just don't see the all all of the boys coming together for collective bargaining. I just don't see it which is why if it ever does happen. I think it would be through SAG that if if W._B. Wherever to become an exclusive television elevation entity than at that point they might have two eight four four four eleven five four eleven. Is the phone number that is toll free eight four four four eleven eleven at five four eleven. You can text me at four to five seven eight zero seven five six six pretty much. Whatever is on your mind today for myself or Lance Storm. Are Co host here today and let's go to the phones on the air. What's up Brian how you doing today. Yes John on about Mrs Darby Big fabulousness. I used to watch late in the summertime and smoke him out. Fascinating is unimpressed to actually watch. It's a great wrestler out to a great wrestler. Actually a winner that is actually winning wrestling matches and my question is this. I'm on what did you think about Dana. White's comments about UH sideboard into situations. I know you don't watch Resi there but I kinda had wanted somebody with attention to ask the question instead of ever done Panitan over here. What's Your Opinion John. You Idiot I. I think the weird thing is well. Let me read this first. Lance in case anybody doesn't know what he's talking about because he didn't really explain anything to anybody and interview posted on the U._S.'s YouTube Channel Channel. Dana White said they are going to pass on re-signing former. You've see women's featherweight champion. Chris Cyborg have waived her exclusive negotiating window with the company. Anthony White reiterated his belief that st no is avoiding fighting current champion Amanda Nunez Noxious Tino out in less than a minute earlier this year we are out of the CYBORG business. He said why discuss the ongoing war of words between the two and said recent stories about what's being said now are quote absolutely ridiculous. Adding does not have a horrible relationship with her. He also once again attempted to clarify the infamous quote Vanderlei Silva in address comments. He made a media scrum several it years ago. He denied bullying Justino. It's two thousand nine hundred ninety said what is this narrative. Words is coming from. It's an absolute smokescreen to not fight a man Nunez she she found out her U._F._C. contract or unanimous decision over Felicia Spencer last Saturday U._F._C. Two forty she posted an apology to white on Instagram for of her production team making it appear like White was saying he wasn't telling the truth about her adding quote. Even though we will continue to disagree about numerous issues I will will always stand up for doing what is right white re tweeted on twitter and said thank you Chris. You're that story yeah. I I read her statement about the video and it wasn't a bad edited. It was a complete fabrication and I think if I was Dana White I'd be done with her I._p. Chris cyborg business. Do you know it's one thing to edit a portion of the sentence but <hes> fabricate what it was actually set that is completely different thing to with with Cyborg is she did move business for U._F._C. whether be pay per view fights or television ratings but that was all before this this new E._S._p._N. plus steal it doesn't matter it no longer matters how many people are interested in buying pay per views now. This could change for five years down the road when it's time to renegotiate the deal like if if E._S._p._N. is paying them. The equivalent of <hes> two hundred and fifty thousand buys is for every single show and their E._S._P._N. Shows are doing like sixty thousand. I mean they're not gonna get a great deal. When it's time for renewal so you know the time will come where they need to put some big marquee fights and they're still trying to put big marquee fights but the point of this is. Cyborg was not a huge business mover but she was a minor business mover and now it doesn't matter so a minor business mover who has problems with Dana White out of here. It's a very different business now yup. The video was that was that was pretty bad. It's going to the phones. You're on the air. What's up. Hey this is Paul in Barbara's bill and I I was wondering I've watched triple mania last night and I was wondering if we had any updates on <hes> Tormenta who took that horrifying bump where she missed this latter. I don't but I'm trying to find out before the end of the show. Okay <hes> I was also a speculating as to where at this angle with Daniel Bryan may be going and let me pitch an idea to what if he shows up on an X._T. Takeover if this deal with Fox sports goes through and inexperience on basic cable opposite of a w they're going to need some star power then you brian that would probably have options are also masters with the Adam Cole and the Velveteen Green and all those guys and the younger guys in an ex team would probably learned a lot from him so it sounds like a win win win situation well. I WanNa thank you very much for the calls. We talked about earlier it it it a I. It's not official yet but the idea is it's Daniel. Bryan Roman reigns so I don't know what his career altering announcement is going to be. I don't know oh I I don't get the storyline at all. Maybe maybe on Tuesday. It'll be perfectly obvious why wait until the very last minute to announce Brian Roman woman rains in his ankle early sense right now doesn't but we can talk about exte- and the main roster and Daniel Bryan and more when we come back wrestling observer alive get old baby for the biggest guests sale of the year up to sixty percent off all back to school styles for kids and baby get flipflops for two bucks graphic tees for four box shorts for six dollars and jeans <music> eight dollars right now.

You're listening to wrestling observer live with Bryan Alvarez Chris and Mike on the Sports Byline Broadcasting Network Elber is year Wrestling Observer. Live land storm arm here for says what David Gear we're discussing was if somebody from Debbie. We really wanted to get fired. Starting Union. Talk would accomplish that goal no. I don't think so I think they just send them home and not use them. I don't know if that would I don't know exactly how that would be handled on really think about it. I mean it could be. They would just continue to book them. Beat them. Bring them a T._v. and not use them. Pam You know I I just don't see them firing anybody now. You know it takes get fired now like I can't say what it takes to get fired because I don't want anyone to you. Try to do some math but the point of this is like you ain't getting fired nowadays think they'd find some other way to make your life miserable well. The thing is it's like nobody wants to be fired either. It's like you don't want to go down that road so it's not like people are going to try to be insubordination terrible. I think the theory is people want to Awa and maybe they've. They've been given an offer like the revival for example you know the revival will get hired for good money for eighty w they don't want to be there. I mean the the the the the theory is like could they try to get union talks going. Ah get fired so they could go to a W. I don't think they'd be fired. Who knows don't think it's GonNa happen the phones during the year what's up. These people tried to call a radio show Lance. Usually I think I've called this show once before really eight four four four four eleven five for eleven is the phone number. Sasha's being paid her salary. What is the policy see for a person who just no shows their job analysts winter should I I. I really don't know I don't imagine she is if they tell her to come to working. She doesn't I think they would be able to not pay her so I I haven't talked to Sasha look paid her downside and they're probably adding adding time to the end of her contract because she she agreed contractual work for X. number of years and she's going to provide services to the company for X. number number of years so she goes home. It doesn't WanNA come to work. That time is being added to the end of a contract. I I presume that's what's going on here. Yeah I would assume assume if you like if they book you and you don't show up. You're breaching your contract. They wouldn't have to pay you wouldn't think and again they ain't gonNA fire you. You're it's not getting paid. It doesn't cost them anything and she's stuck until she comes back would be my guess. Per says Dave mentioned that the raw reunion did not sell out in in Tampa. Do you anticipate a soft market for wrestlemainia weakened tickets based on that. No I expect Wrestlemainia to sell out. Almost immediately could be wrong wrestlemainia. It's the menu weekend. It's like everybody goes. That's the big deal. It's like yeah. I think main is is is golden so I mean the the whole talk of reunion not selling out I mean Steve was there and they advertised forty five talents or whatever I mean who are the biggest names there Steve Austin Rick flair. Who'd you say Hulk Hogan Hulk Hogan Okay and then so really there were three big star's there because you know we see triple h all the time John Zena wasn't advertised. John was advertised Shawn Michaels. I mean it just feels to me like I don't know. Would you bought a ticket in financial. I think if I would've I would've bought it even if they weren't on it like either. WanNa go to raw wooden wooden Cheryl. If those difference makers would make Bhagat Save Yeah I. I don't think that would have been a difference maker to me because it's just okay they're going to be there. They're going to have promo and that'll be it. I made sure I tuned in on Monday on T._v. Because I wanted to see those promos but I don't know if I buy a ticket if it wasn't planning on going I mean the show did a little over. Three million viewers was the highest rated show in forever but I mean the days of four and a half million viewers five million viewers. I mean that didn't happen I just I don't know I think people are. I think people were expecting too much out of raw reunion. I think I think the U._S._A. Network was expecting adding too much out of it. I think W._B._Z.'s probably expecting too much out of it. I mean most of those names aren't going to move things one way or the other. I mean it was cool to see Steve Austin awesome back. He was like the highlight of the show thing. You did the cut that Promo was awesome but I don't know I just don't see that as like you know because Rau- reunion didn't sell out A._W._S. Not going to sell out which obviously W did sell out or because we brought reunion didn't do well like wrestlemanias not going to do well. I just don't see any of these things. I just don't see them as being like comparable. No I think it's a historic event and mania is talked about a year after year. After year is a monumental thing and you know. It's one of the things you need to know or do before you die of your W._b. Fan There's a book about it. You know Wrestlemainia. Weekend is one of those things and Bravo. Reunion isn't one of those things it was a fun raw but it was just a fun raw with some names names from the past. I enjoyed the show. The Promo is great but I don't think it's a monumental event. That will be talking about for five years. Spur near says is this forklift lift altering announcement basically either who drove the White Hummer Angle from W._w. Two thousand I sure hope not that was a dumb angle. I think it was actually before that wasn't it. Was it the year two thousand. We're in two thousand now we are but I think the White Hummer already happened right yeah yeah. Oh it's it might have been ninety nine that they did the White Hummer. I don't think they ever revealed who it was so maybe we'll finally find out shop is in charge of smackdown now. Yes yes is Carmen. Electra is GONNA. Shove Dr that forklift there you go. She's still around. I'm sure she still round anybody on triple mania. You expect to see in a w in in twenty nineteen. Welcome Books Cody's Kosei Cody. The young bucks the elite. Kenny Omega is going to be there like I said I mean they have a talent budget and I think I feel that they have already signed most everybody that they're going to sign line like there may be somebody else here there but I mean I don't see him. Announcing the signing of twenty twenty more people more people become available but I don't. I don't necessarily surly think I mean. They've got a working relationship so if you're asking like who do you think of this working relationship might work some A._W._S. Shows and in <hes> two thousand nineteen. I mean Louis Brothers Rateau Kid. I don't know Sammy Bar. Obviously I think that's the key to though it's like you know have your roster but then have you know bring a couple of guys in from o w e see for a six month program on television and then pinch a couple of guys from your AAA relationship and bringing Viking go in for a six-month program with someone. You don't want eighty people on your roster the to try to fit on your show every week. It gets hard to book so get your Core Group. Whatever it is and then you know brings you know if they get a relationship with say start or bring a couple of girls in for a six-month program with someone and then send them on their way. I think that keeps the show fresher. Did you watch any of triple mania <hes> just clip so. I don't know why I never thought about this before but Cain Velasquez former U._f._C. heavyweight champion. He's like a big Lucia Fan and longtime ago. We heard that Cain Velasquez first we I heard that he wanted to get into pro wrestling and kind of like he's a he's a big dude obviously but I mean when you think of fighters that might transition to professional wrestling like very low on the list is Cain Velasquez then we hear that he's going to wrestle at triple mania in it's like okay now. He's going to get a wrestling. He's GonNa get an A. Lucia like and be good at it and it's like the most baffling story of the year but then he does it and like there were so many things that were eye opening. I he was pretty good and the reality what he is. I mean some people I can explain this. He's obviously a great athlete okay and great athletes who watched pro wrestling for a long time. I feel like they transition earlier. Then obviously people who aren't great athletes were wrestling fans or people who are great athletes and never really watched wrestling and all they just talk minute trying pro wrestling. You know better than anybody lance so this guy like like he was pretty good in the ring and they put a man character now wears a mask. It's kind of like gray putting the mask back back on you know what I mean but then it was like it's a cool mask and the biggest issue with Cain Velasquez was always that he was so generic any wasn't a bombastic charismatic personality and so you put a mask on the guy fell son. It's it's like it's a cool looking mask. He's doing some cool stuff and I'm like dude. This guy may actually be a successful pro wrestler. When all is said and done sounds pretty impressive yeah I only saw a couple of clips and he did a Lucia arm drag thing off the ropes needed a flip into a jumping Rana and <hes> yeah. He looks like he's got a lot of athletic bill. You can tell he was having fun. Yeah and I think that's the big thing when you liked it as a kid. You understand understand what you're supposed to look like and be doing and he seemed to really enjoy it. <hes> you know getting through a six man. Match is not the same as being able to do a singles match but he looked with great. He looked like he was having fun. I ask you this question here. I had a guy that started up in Jujitsu probably a year ago and and he had zero background in anything. He was not a a wrestler when he was young he sees. I think it's twenty four now. She's twenty three when he started. He didn't do any amateur wrestling. He didn't do any martial arts. I think he did like marching band or something like that but he worked out a lot. You know he was in the gym all the time great shape and so he came in and he's just a completely letelier blank slate at now year later. This dude is great or like who who becomes the best fastest. Is there like a template. I think I think the biggest thing is A. I like a blank slate in. I hate hate so strong word but I find it frustrating when you get people that have done some training elsewhere because I find once they develop bad habits at so hard to break them but I I do find amateur. ESTA as a base is a good the thing because you don't sort of have to teach them body control as much. I think that would be my background that I would like the most but it's really hard. I've had a few students that didn't watch wrestling or weren't fans and it's really hard because they have no concept of what is even supposed to look like I had a guy that was like he played rugby or Australian rules football or something and I think he had a knee injury in his career ended in someone's all you should try wrestling and he had never watched it before and win win was they were doing some kind of spot and you know and it was just so obvious to everyone what should have came next and as Mike Dude if you never watched wrestling before he's like nope. I'm just like okay then it's it's just so weird wrestling without context and if you've never watched before it's so strange thanks to people it's so strange because if I had never watched wrestling and somebody said hey you should try this pro wrestling the Buddy Wayne Academies like twenty minutes from Your House great but like to have never watched wrestling and you've got up and moved to Calgary Alberta Happen a couple times yeah that is bizarre are back in Komo with more observer live in awe aw told baby for the biggest sale of the year up to sixty percent off all back to school styles for for kids and baby get flipflops two bucks graphic tees for four bucks shorts for six dollars and jeans for eight dollars right now.
