Because i think today's fans are probably used to the idea. One magazines aren't as as prominent or dominant in the in the space because of the internet and social media and a lot of other things. Athletes have so much more so many more avenues of their own to tell their story and to keep a distance from us. You know it's a battle. We fight all the time now and trying to get access and trying to when you talk about in your book jack mccallum's first story with michael. After he arrives in the league mccallum's for it was the first one right visiting them in his in his apartment like that. It's it's hard to imagine that happening. I mean it can and it does. It happens a lot less frequently. And especially with somebody of michael jordan stature. It almost doesn't happen at if it does happen. It's probably happening on those athletes terms a lot of documentaries. That are coming out now. The athletes are the ones who are executive producers on. There's a lot of blurring of the lines so the independent mainstream journalists going and saying. Hey best player in your sport. I want to spend time with. You is a very hard mountain to climb these days and so for perspective because i think listeners will find it interesting gimme your synopsis of of michael jordan's first cover story what that entailed with us. I yeah so you know. The stars born cover which many people consider mean he. He was on the cover before when he was at north carolina insurance. So jack mccollum did a lot of the story so that was actually done by alexander wolf. 'cause 'cause alexander will had covered him in college and he had gone on this west coast road trip which The bulls were embarking on because they had become the biggest story because of michael's first month in the nba. and alexander. just got to spend time with michael and his teammates. They went out along with photographer. Many milan to he was going like mini. Go karting and just like all these activities. With some of the older guys like orlando woolridge and some of his other teammates and he was just able to really embed himself into michael's life and you know i would out extend on. Oh you're asking about just as i cover story because jack became the lead. Nba writer there in nineteen eighty-four and just built this really strong relationship with michael one of the stories that he told me. I'm not even sure of this. This might have been cut from. The book is that there was one time when michael is married to juanita at the time. And they were interviewing michael at the house. Juanita came down with jeffrey jordan. Michelson and nobody knew that. Michael had the sun and and jack told michael. I'm going to include this in the story. Because i'm journalists and this is what i saw. And this is your life. And michael through bulls p. r. had approached jack after the interview and said that michael prefer that you don't actually include. This and jack drew the line. Jack said listen. I have a great relationship with the most popular player in the nba. But i'm journalists. And i'm going to include this in. Their michael wasn't happy and what jack told me was. They didn't speak for several months. They ran into each other at all star break and they just moved on jack. Jack apologize michael said. I wasn't happy with it. But there was a mutual respect. And and i think again it goes back like you mentioned everything now today when it comes to access and doing these stories everything is very neatly prepackaged right where where like pr people management. People have to have a checklist of things that you can can ask about. Some maybe even asked for final approval. We've seen scottie pippen go on an all-time book tour at at the moment. Speaking about michael and the creative control that he had on the last dance. So i think those types of examples really does. It really does illustrate kind of a two way street in terms of michael's respect for jack. And what jack did at sl but also sl knowing that they were a powerhouse as well themselves. They were the most important sports magazine. So if we're gonna put a cover of of a cover story your sneakers or your life about michael jordan sneakers getting kids killed in different neighborhoods. We're going to do that like we're not just going to promote everything. That's good with michael. We're going to be critical about him and we also understand that. There's a mutual respect and that piece was done by rectilinear correct. Yes and so. That one was interesting because talent. Her against chicago-based guy. Somebody else that. I think michael already knew well and so i'm sure how to respect and trust for was able to go and talk to michael about this trend. That was happening in in the nineties. Were kids were getting killed over. Jordan's and i thought it was really spoke well of michael. At that time that he was willing to engage in that he it. It sounds like it truly troubled him that this was not something he was aware of. Because there in this insulated world right. They're not you know. This is a trend that was sort of emerging in piecemeal across the country. Right a robbery shooting there or whatever and so But i thought that that spoke well of both subject and journalists in the way that they were able to tell that story that michael was willing to to weigh in so that was interesting. So there's definitely like high points they're in a really good relationship but professional right like no one's selling out just for the sake of covering michael I don't know where the high point of the relationship is. Or maybe the high point of his of his time as as a cover subject actually so again before we get to the downturn highpoint and are there is there a specific jordan. Cover that you think is is the you know the most iconic of the iconic so i wouldn't say it was an iconic cover but i would say to your to your question. I believe this was the high point. And this was when michael. Jordan was sportsman of the year in nineteen ninety one when he won his first championship and sl put out this very famous holographic cover so they hired a graphic artist and they had michael come into studio and this was a very expensive undertaking and sl did three cover stories about him because the concept was we going to show him three dimensional on the cover. And we're also gonna tell three different stories about michael inside the magazine. So i think it was dave halberstam. An jack. Mccollum did did a story as well and my apologies. I can't think of the third right right now but like it. This was the high point of celebrating michael because we all know that michael went through this career. Path of great individuals score wasn't able to get it done in the playoffs. Couldn't get the detroit pistons and now. He finally climbed to the mountaintop. And it's hilarious to me because he was also a high point but also preview. What was to come. Because jack told me the story. He met up with michel after they won after he won the championship a week later for breakfast and it wasn't a michael was excited to talk to jack anymore. Michael had went golfing earlier in the day. He rushed the diner to meet jack and when he sat down he told jack. I'm playing another eighteen holes. So let's just get this over with. I'm tired of you. Jokingly and jack said to him jokingly back. I'm tired of you too. And i think this was around the time when jordan rules comes out sam. Smith's great book. Here's the spotlight on his gambling. People started changing the narrative and obviously tragically his father passing away after his three peat. There was a period there. What i think. Michael started to grow tired of the spotlight. And as a result started to grow tired of the media including sports illustrated. Yeah and of course if anybody who saw the last dance last year i mean. There's a lot of that you can see even in real time. Not just the present day michael reflecting back but the the michael of that time being filmed in the nineties talking about and he just he looked and sounded exhausted. Like living in that in that spotlight is not easy for anyone. All the fame and wealth in the world does not you know diminish how the pressure of that and just the exhaustion. I think probably having everybody focused on on everything about you all the time so that brings us to. Of course the the infamous ternan in this whole tale. Which is michael retires. And he goes to play baseball and sports illustrated Does not look positively on the endeavour tells about the story and the and the cover. Because i think this is. It's not just for us is history. But i think jordan's history just if anybody's ever studying the relationship of sports journalists sports journalism and are the subjects we covered like. This is just an interesting lesson from a lot of different angles. Yes this is the the cover of michael at spring training with the chicago white sox he had retired after the three petes shock the world and then shocked the world again four months later announcing that he was going to try and play baseball. Now michael haydn play baseball since high school and so steve wolfe One of the best baseball writers at sl was sent to sir soda. Florida to to just go check out. Michael play a few intra squad. Games play a few spring training games comeback with a story so his story was very if you read a back now and i believe you can still access it on sl vault. It's it takes a snarky tone like it's a snarky tone and steve steve. When i spoke to him for the book at admitted that as well. And i know he's talked about it a lot over the years but steve didn't think that his story and his tone match the cover now for people to understand just quick context. The writer doesn't choose the cover photo and they don't cover they. Don't choose the cover line. This is i think what a lot of us say. Today when people get upset at some of the headlines up our feature stories. We don't use those most. The headlights headlines. Many times in my life you know. Continue to say people. We don't write the headlines. So steve does the story and to the honest his story was consistent with what everybody was saying in the media at the time. Like why is michael doing this. Michael is not going to be a good baseball player. Is this just a publicity stunt but the cover was this very embarrassing photo. Michael swinging at a pitch and his bad is like four feet off from where the pitches and then the main cover line said bag it michael and it's michael and the chicago. White sox are embarrassing. The baseball and this was a decision by sl managing editor marco mauroy. And when i talked about it for the book he said that you know he just thought everything. That michael was doing by trying. Baseball was a farce and it was a disrespect to the game of baseball. And he led his feelings be known so steve wolfe the writer when he saw the cover was not very happy with mark and obviously a lot of time has passed and that was everybody. I think knows even if you're not into magazines. That was when michael drew the line at decided he was never going to talk to cy again and he still hasn't to this day. Steve is more apologetic today. And you know. I think i think from what i get from. Steve is that he believes it was the cover and not the cover story. Which made michael upset. Which i think i do agree with. Meanwhile again i don't wanna spoil this 'cause you know mark mark mauroy is a pretty big character in the first part of the book but mark i will summarize is still pretty firm in his stance he stands by that. Cover and yeah. I think it's interesting to get those different perspectives to in present day so to be. Ultra ultra clear here again Obviously mobely retired right. Everybody who's involved in that has has since moved on and of course during that time again. I was not at sports illustrated. I remember as a fan of the game as someone who was watching it but was not covering yet And as somebody who certainly like a lot of basketball fans love jordan. It was interesting i looked at it and thought if you could hit two hundred in the minors having not picked up a bat in a decade or however long it had been to me it had never felt like a failure in the first place. I thought maybe this. I was looking at this too much through a fan lens. Right ultra possible at that stage of my life. I was covering the game. I did not have the same emotional distance from it. That i do now as a jaded old sports writer but i thought at the time like holy crap. This is hard hitting baseballs. Hard hitting even minor league pitchers hard this is. He's not a baseball player and he did improve as time went on. And so i remember even as a reader thinking well. That was a little harsh. But whether that justifies liken deciding to shut down the magazine at the time and in perpetuity feels a little overwrought especially given where his is standing in the world in general at. This isn't hurting him in any way and probably didn't at the time but i understand why he didn't appreciate it there are you you tell the story and again i'll leave. This people should buy the book and go read your book but there's some really interesting follow ups to that about attempts to re-engage and specific writers who had good relationships with them but he would talk to them he just wasn't gonna talk to them on the record one on one as long as they read sl if they were somewhere else seems like that was possible so he really has held against the institution. Do you have any sense. Alex yourself having interviewed mall voi- having interviewed wolf having reviewed all this like. Is anybody right or wrong in this. Is this just a case of like a bunch of people. Being hard headed for decades. Since i think. I think it's a lot of ego involved right. I think both from both from markova sports illustrated. And i think i think it's it's understandable because sl under mark maurois watch was did position themselves as as a magazine that weren't afraid to criticize people. I think if i were to take mo voice side i would say why wasn't michael moore upset with some of the other incidents like when maybe jack mccollum crossed the line and wrote about his personal life when he didn't want to or even the your sneakers or your life story which painted him in a not so positive. I wonder too from michael side by defending michael. He was at a point of his career. He was going through a lot in his personal life. Obviously losing his father who was so close to and baseball was something that he enjoyed playing growing up and his father was a semi pro player and from michael's recollection. I believe he said this in the last dance the last conversation that he had with his father. He told him that he wanted to quit basketball and go play baseball so this was something that he was doing. Maybe not just for himself to get away but this was something that he wanted to honor for his father. So obviously i didn't get a chance to talk to michael about this but i think for me of our to look at it based on everything that i have. I kind of understand where michael is coming from. I don't think this was a personal thing against mark mobile. I don't even think this was a personal thing about sl. I think because of all the negative media attention that had been building up. He's just realized. Sl is the most prominent national sports magazine. And i'm going to use them as an example to show that. I actually do not need this. That i don't need to talk to asai. I don't need the cy covers anymore. I'm bigger than all of this. So that's kind of where i land because you know i'd like you mentioned it's been so many years and i know everyone's moved on but it's fascinating to me that there's this one magazine cover that just ended this great beautiful relationship between the most popular sports magazine and the most popular athlete in the world. Yeah it's it's kind of crazy. I do think to an extent. I think you kind of some this up. I think you kind of hinted at this. I think there was so much negativity around his decision to play baseball. And the way that went he was going to focus his anger at the coverage. Somewhere at some point and cover maybe was harsher than others or harsher than other depictions. Whether on tv magazines newspapers but there was there was a backlash to go around from a lot of different directions and it seems to me that he just kind of decided. The train is focused on. Well this this is the one that went too far or this. This is how. I'm going to express my disdain and contempt for how my rain baseball has has been portrayed there you've got a bunch of really cool. Dennis rodman stuff as well involving my silver. I urge everybody to go. Read all that. There's some fun behind the scenes stuff there baloney ask it this way. Did sl make rodman a celebrity. Or was he on that trajectory anyway. Because the way you cover one of his covers bixby think it feels like. There's there's a bit of that premise. They're like okay. There's the moment when he was. He was just the eccentric. Kind of a troublemaker. And then it was. No no doubt. Dennis rodman is running an all new circles and with kind of a different image. Yes so this is the ninety five cover. And i think most basketball fans remember this. The rare bird cover where he's got the leather outfit. And he's got a macaw parrot which was shot at his house. I think based on everything that i research and people that i talked to. I do think that cover opened a lot of doors for dennis in in terms of going from this. Just kind of niche centric guy who is transforming himself personally in san antonio into this a-list celebrities. I mean as i was working on the book i was thinking. There was probably a time when dennis was up there with michael and shack as the most recognizable basketball stars to just the mainstream audience. And in the book. I talked to dwight manley. Who became dennis's manager after being close friend for a really long time and the rare bird. Cover the fact that. Si put dennis on the cover with that photo and obviously that was one of the just wildest cover stories at the time. All the things that dennis told michael silver about it opened the door for him to write a bad as i wanna be which he worked with with tim. Cuban and oh this is on the wall side. Bad as i wanna be. I'm getting mixed up. But it's one of those both books. And then he ended up on the covers of rolling stone he was on g. Cou i'm sure you remember howard. He got into wrestling so he was on a wrestling magazines he did. Tv show didn't yet yet at mtv. With a believe cindy crawford. He was in the movie double team was john. Claude van damme. I do believe that. Si cover didn't make him in a way. But i think the way. He presented himself in the cover story and on the magazine. Cover opened up all of these other avenues for him. Quick shoutout to the defunct sacramento union newspaper. By the way. Which is the first place. I ever got a job covering sports. Where michael silver and tim. Kyun the to dennis rodman authors back to back were. We were all there at the same time way back. When along with mike wise also.

After he arrives in the league mccallum's for it was the first one right visiting them in his in his apartment like that. It's it's hard to imagine that happening. I mean it can and it does. It happens a lot less frequently. And especially with somebody of michael jordan stature. It almost doesn't happen at if it does happen. It's probably happening on those athletes terms a lot of documentaries. That are coming out now. The athletes are the ones who are executive producers on. There's a lot of blurring of the lines so the independent mainstream journalists going and saying. Hey best player in your sport. I want to spend time with. You is a very hard mountain to climb these days and so for perspective because i think listeners will find it interesting gimme your synopsis of of michael jordan's first cover story what that entailed with us. I yeah so you know. The stars born cover which many people consider mean he. He was on the cover before when he was at north carolina insurance. So jack mccollum did a lot of the story so that was actually done by alexander wolf. 'cause 'cause alexander will had covered him in college and he had gone on this west coast road trip which The bulls were embarking on because they had become the biggest story because of michael's first month in the nba. and alexander. just got to spend time with michael and his teammates. They went out along with photographer. Many milan to he was going like mini. Go karting and just like all these activities. With some of the older guys like orlando woolridge and some of his other teammates and he was just able to really embed himself into michael's life and you know i would out extend on. Oh you're asking about just as i cover story because jack became the lead. Nba writer there in nineteen eighty-four and just built this really strong relationship with michael one of the stories that he told me. I'm not even sure of this. This might have been cut from. The book is that there was one time when michael is married to juanita at the time. And they were interviewing michael at the house. Juanita came down with jeffrey jordan. Michelson and nobody knew that. Michael had the sun and and jack told michael. I'm going to include this in the story. Because i'm journalists and this is what i saw. And this is your life. And michael through bulls p. r. had approached jack after the interview and said that michael prefer that you don't actually include. This and jack drew the line. Jack said listen. I have a great relationship with the most popular player in the nba. But i'm journalists. And i'm going to include this in. Their michael wasn't happy and what jack told me was. They didn't speak for several months. They ran into each other at all star break and they just moved on jack. Jack apologize michael said. I wasn't happy with it. But there was a mutual respect. And and i think again it goes back like you mentioned everything now today when it comes to access and doing these stories everything is very neatly prepackaged right where where like pr people management. People have to have a checklist of things that you can can ask about. Some maybe even asked for final approval. We've seen scottie pippen go on an all-time book tour at at the moment. Speaking about michael and the creative control that he had on the last dance. So i think those types of examples really does. It really does illustrate kind of a two way street in terms of michael's respect for jack. And what jack did at sl but also sl knowing that they were a powerhouse as well themselves. They were the most important sports magazine. So if we're gonna put a cover of of a cover story your sneakers or your life about michael jordan sneakers getting kids killed in different neighborhoods. We're going to do that like we're not just going to promote everything. That's good with michael. We're going to be critical about him and we also understand that. There's a mutual respect.

I don't care if it's a steak house a car law and underwear company whatever. It is I still have all my amateur status left. So i am available for name. Image likeness deals. Yeah i don't know what. Yeah i guess we could do that an outright. I mean we're doin' athletes but were podcasts. Gore i mean we i mean i still have all my amateur. Al eligibility loves for cost evil break. Go light goldberg. Anybody ducks true true. I mean it's it's quite possible. I mean you could. I guess you could be on the bowling team right My my my seven ten split. Accuracy is for nominal. It knows at factual or sarcasm. The pins on how drunk i am. What i'm bowling won't pretty good. It's weird like My bowling in my pool skills increase as the alcohol content increases. Which is your mechanics are all off because all it takes something like that to get a ton number at yeah. That's all you have to do. Have to do all right dr trae. Let's get into it here before we get into any more about how limber you are on this week's edition the show. They were fortunate releases. Last friday from from me and The list of people released from world. War i see entertainment. Include dongo tyler. Breeze tony niece. Ra dari august gray. Everett parker and matt martel. Kurt stallion the bollywood boys. To and samir saying our tour touro. Ross marina fear killian dane and tibo sabatino sabah. Telly So basically the two of five live ross. Current to a roster was Was caught and then there are some surprising names in there. Some longtime folks like dong tyler breeze and killing and dane Some folks that unfortunately never made it consistently on the next rosser toronto. Ross marina fearing tino sabotage Unfortunate releases your doctor. Trae sad to see a lot of these names Cut from world war center payment. This past week yeah. I don't think this round of i don't think this round was as shocking as the outer black braun. Strowman cuts But yeah like you said there. There's some guys who are long tenure guys that maybe never really got the right. Shot with doctor on tyler breeze right. They heard credibly talented also very charismatic. Guy like killian dane. Who remember what he came to extent like. We're like oh man they're gonna push for the mind and it just never really happen the thing brothers. I love those guys of guys are outstanding into sucks. They never go push the two of five live guys easter bari. Those guys you know it sucks. They've been around for a while You know the kurt stallion released you. Think maybe out of all of these releases kind of the most surprising one because it felt like he was just getting a decent push to five live And maybe i can transfer they transfer over to see if you owe. Five live is going away or something. I don't know but that was kind of shocking. And i did not know. Sally was still on the roster in all honesty. I thought he'd been cut. You know a while back so Like i said maybe not as shocking as the or black brought stroman day but you know still sucking guys. You are busy talented lose their job. Resign go I feel like never got a real fair shake at it. They were highly entertaining. Romantics detecting titles. That was when the division. I felt like has been down nothing to. That's due to them. Just there wasn't a lot of competition at that time. During the pandemic of an x t the to five live roster. I still watch to five live every week. And it's a damn shame. I don't know what this means for two five live. They did announce matches for this upcoming friday. Show they'll be qualifying matches for the. Nfc breakout tournament. But i felt like for a while that it was time for two five. Live to pack it up and even more so now when you literally cut the entire roster who made up the show each and every week for like the last six to eight months toning longtime on the show august grazed and featured a lot lately ever rise Even they were attacking. They were featured lot highly entertaining. The started to like it a little bit momentum on television and you cut them loose which was ashamed. The social media show Just greg is kurt stallion to dr transport and he's actually out on an injury As my understanding. I think he broke his collarbone or something like that dislocated shoulder he was supposed to face santos escobar. That matched did happen but it was like without any type of fanfare whatsoever after they built it up as a number one contenders match onto a five. Live several months back. I wanna say like the end of the year. The bollywood boys They just worked really hard. And it's a damn shame. See guys that truly care about the business getting cut loose or too russ marina shapiro. Tina's batallio re-cut upon them talked about them. They they never really got a fair shake. Tino was actually cut a year ago. They brought them back. Cut again Then killing dane. I i love the stuff that he was doing with With drake maverick. I love the theme song tag team. It just seemed like it was a lot of fun Now with the exception of nikki storm. Or now known as i guess nikki ash almost superhero every member of sanity including madman fulton who was on sanity for like a very brief period before being replaced by killing dane is is no longer a deputy out to try and that is something that is very surprising to me because what three or four years ago sanity was. One of my favorite acts in all of state was very ahead of the head of the head of it all and now they're all out At least two of the four of them that are available or on impact wrestling one with violent by design one. That's aligned with the ace. Austin i i guess you could bring alexander wolf and killing dane over to impact wrestling and had them paired with violent by design as well. It's just It's always a shame. You're never happy to talk about these things when there's releases from me especially now with the company even coming out of the pandemic even even more so like like tyler breezes. I i've been watching up dow For quite a while. But that was ever woods in tyler breeze on the emba watching them do Gmo fra smackdown vs raw. Two thousand. Six what my favorite things to watch. I catch it every single week. And you know they. They've been doing a whole thing where they've been using neo unused wrestlers who needed to push and then every time one of those guys just released. They basically treated like the transfer portal or a college basketball college football. And they're like oh they they. They hit the port. Will we got somebody else coming in interesting. What happened with tyler. Bridges spot up down because they typically don't use anybody who's not on wb roster and he helped launch that channel with xavier. woods away. So it's going to see how that all plays out going forward as well because that is a huge brand that debbie uses a lot across other platforms to get or.

"Wracking. I remember when the team of dane and maverick. I were put together here. quirkiness is the curiosity. Got the best of you but then the more that you watched it you felt okay. You know what these guys. They're making a connection here. Okay this might actually go somewhere as far as individuals teams that i felt was going to be most successful. Appall return into live events. Kellyanne dane and drake maverick was definitely a team. I was eyeball. This really. just kind of brings to question in mind okay. So what really is next for drake. Maverick there was such an outrage on social media when he was initially released and we saw what happened with. Drake doing that emotional video and everything and social media. Just in a big uproar coming together. Unanimously andric maverick. Was eventually resigned. Only this happens so now. You can't just help with say okay. So now there's no killian. So what's next here for drake. Maverick is drake maverick. Seriously gonna be alright going forward or is he eventually going to be on that. Listen he's going to be joining killing dane as well remember. One of the last story arcs that came about imperium was trying to do some stuff. There where alexander wolf because of the history that he had with killian dane he was trying to get deigned to wake up. Come to his senses and get back to that. Monster is behemoth that he used to be and try to offer him spy and imperium and then remember imperium members they ultimately turned on alexander. Wolf beat the crap out of him. Wolf is now on tv but then we find out wolf got released from the wwe. So you got imperium. That's continuing on walter Nowhere to be seeing there but you got those other two guys imperium. That's best 'continuing represent go on strong and you know what i'm saying. It was kind of like the one of the last chapters that you saw that was going on near with that. Whole imperium dane maverick saga and then the same..

"Not sam wrestling today Today's a big deal man and I figured we'd get on here. We've all got our different. I don't know thoughts opinions and ideas on everything that's gone down so let's talk about it. it was broken first place i heard it. I want to say it was broken by them but who knows. I just know that. This is the first place that i heard. It was from sean. Ross sap over at fight foil this morning but it has been confirmed by. Wwe buddy murphy. Santana garrett lana ruby riott alastair black and braun strowman all released from their. Wwe contracts are all Free agents now in the world well if professional wrestling is free agent so to speak. You know. I'm assuming that there's a ninety day non competes. Obviously i have no idea. I'm not. I don't know anything about law. I don't know anything about their contracts. I don't know anything about business. I watch a lot of wrestling but those one two three four five six superstars getting released. Come hot off the heels of last month's annex t releases velveteen dream. Jesmyn do vanessa born Schuyler story alexander wolf and those came right off the heels of april's releases from the main roster which shook the world. samoa. Joe bill kate. Peyton royce mickie. James chelsea green tucker policto beau dallas. Wesley blake and mojo rawley. And then of course. There were a handful of releases before that earlier this year. But i mean everybody's becoming a every went to business school today. You know i i. I don't think that it's levi. Came on. Here's that you know what i think you know what i think as i start to add up all the facts. I'm starting to think maybe. Wwe is preparing themselves for a sale. Like all of a sudden we all know about corporate business. Because it's the only way. I love it. That's what i love about wrestling. And i'm not saying it's not true by the way i'm not saying those. Those those thoughts are not good thoughts. I didn't great thoughts. I think that that's actually a pretty astute of sort of Analysis and a smart way of looking at what's going on. I don't think that that's there's plenty of of spots where you could see could. Wwe being sold to nbc universal. You know they're already paying two billion dollars for the network plus whatever money. They're paying for television. Maybe fox wants to buy a wrestling company maybe. Espn needs a wrestling company. Maybe maybe caa. We're there president. Nikon came from abc. A wants to buy wwe outright. Maybe tony kahn. Just shows up and does a simulcast or something. I don't know there's a million things could happen and while that is a possibility. I think that there's a lot of people who might not know the most about a corporate business that are now experts because it's the only way they can wrap their heads around the fact that braun strowman announced her blackout released. And i get it. I get it. It doesn't make sense when you think about it. There's gotta be some explanation and look in in this broad spectrum in the broadest possible spectrum as you're looking you know i'm assuming braun strowman was making a ton of money but at the same time. It's not like there wasn't a return on the investment braun. Strowman was main eventing paper us just main event. Did i just saw it with my own two eyes. I don't know maybe alastair black was making a whole bunch of money. But i just seen like a whole bunch of promos for alastair black returning and then i watched him screw biggie. I just watched. Lana on raw buddy murphy is so good. He's so good. I don't know what to tell you. I don't know why these were the name selected. But yeah i mean you know it be that the the wwe is going to at some point be sold that could be. Could it also be that. The wwe has changed their philosophy on talent rosters period of time where wwe kept a large talent roster under lock and key for years at a time and they were criticized for it. You know let's not forget about all the superstars that you read about on the internet that put in there notice for release and we're not. The request was not granted. The release was not met and it was like. Oh because because they wanted to lock down for the last about a year ago you know at the beginning of the pandemic last april twenty twenty. It seemed like philosophies were changing on that and we got a large roster cut which before the philosophy on talent was what it was had been a not so great. Not so fun. Tradition that after wrestlemainia every year. There'd be a wave of of cuts. Which always if you're a fan sucks terrible news. I mean even more. If you're a superstar right either you're getting released or you're watching your friends get released. Nobody wants that. Nobody wants to see that but it's not unprecedented. So maybe the wwe is just in a position where they want a roster. That is slimmer. I don't know. I don't know what the answer is but i think we are trying to figure it out right. That's why you're seeing so many people who never went to business school saying. Wwe is preparing for a sale. That's why i'm sitting here going. Like maybe they think their talent roster stoop bloated because otherwise we're just sitting there lost in a field somewhere trying to figure out why are wrestlers are going away. I'll tell you this though anybody out. There has a whole lot of money if you listen to not see them wrestling podcast and you got a lot of money. Give it to me. Because i would like to start a wrestling promotion. Because that's the first thing that i thought when i look at this list and combine it with the list before analysts before that and then add those two facts with the fact that live events not just for wwe not just for a w but in general live events are coming back and they're coming back full force. Comedy clubs are back. Concert halls are back and shows are selling out. People want live entertainment. People want life to be back summer. This year is going to be all about the return of normalcy and celebrating and live entertainment and all.

But i mean everybody's becoming a every went to business school today. You know i i. I don't think that it's levi. Came on. Here's that you know what i think you know what i think as i start to add up all the facts. I'm starting to think maybe. Wwe is preparing themselves for a sale. Like all of a sudden we all know about corporate business. Because it's the only way. I love it. That's what i love about wrestling. And i'm not saying it's not true by the way i'm not saying those. Those those thoughts are not good thoughts. I didn't great thoughts. I think that that's actually a pretty astute of sort of Analysis and a smart way of looking at what's going on. I don't think that that's there's plenty of of spots where you could see could. Wwe being sold to nbc universal. You know they're already paying two billion dollars for the network plus whatever money. They're paying for television.

"March thirty first obvious leave the nba nba play tournament games. Average two point three million viewers and five point six million viewers respectively which been into dynamites numbers. Ten weeks prior dynamite. Averaged seven. seventy five point three. So this week's dynamite drawing higher viewership. The net is likely due to older viewers. Us to watch t. on wednesdays year over year. They're up obviously no head to head and This was what everybody figured. In fact i thought the show was going to do worse because of the competition but this numbers down next week is invariably be down because the shows airing at ten pm on a friday night and sky is not falling it is what it is and it does hurt their momentum. I do think that when they get back to wednesdays unopposed may take a week or so to get back to the before. I don't think this will permanently damage the brand in any way but that's just reality of of going head to head with the nba and getting preempted mean the nba play-off The method that they had with these playing games. Which the commissioner. Adam silver wants to keep the the players don't necessarily but even on tuesday those games on tnt. Did the big numbers. he was. Two and a half million was the average for the the celtics wizards game that took place. So it's they've had some some big numbers. This is always going to be a tough situation for. Aws or anybody else. That's got to deal with the nba. They're just a monster. Their ratings monster. There are a a demo claw to just claw away what you have. You know they'll rip that up as well. It's always going to be tough competition so it is what it is and i know. There's a lot of wrestling fans that are just offended. That might god hockey or the nba running these other things that get in the way but big business in big business matters the ratings matter and so k to take a backseat to a real sport Occasionally that's okay as long as you can bounce back so it was not the best number in the world. Obviously but. I don't think they're going to now that they've you know fallen back under one thousand all of a sudden they're going to stay there forever. This number should ricochet back nicely. Well we gotta talk about the velveteen dream. I wait till the next segment since. I don't think it's going to be two minutes. I'll read the story here. And then we'll talk more after the break from wrestling observer dot com velveteen dream has been released by debbie confirmed by dave meltzer. I confirm this one yesterday. I don't i ever get credit. Nason dream was part of several annex t releases over the past two days and competed in a match since december of twenty twenty. Losing to adam cole. On an episode of inex- t he had been used sparingly through the last four months of the year wrestling only five times as of now no news as to what caused his release by the season of tough enough. The was twenty five years old. Patrick clark view the velveteen dream character and thousand seventeen quickly became a fan at favor. As part of the speaking out movement last april the show light on sexual abuse and misconduct any pro wrestling industry. He was accused of sending pictures to underage. More allegations rose in june but he denied all allegations saying quote. A private photo of mine was shared without my consent or knowledge. And i'm working with a third party to look into this matter. He was also involved in a car accident around the same time in june. That took him off television last dog. It's paul was asked about the allegations and said wbz looked into them and quote. There was nothing there again. Saying the reason he was taken off tv was due to the car accident. Eight on air.

"I said hide it to drake. And that's basically the reaction i had with him was just saying hi. Yeah but i've talked to plenty of people that have worked on the independence with him back in the day and they said he was the nicest guy. They said. He was a pleasure. Yeah benny had a lot of matches with him You know i've heard other wrestlers. Say like he's a really nice guy when he got signed super happy for him because there are so many people that i like that were happy and i was like okay. Because he's a good guy. Like i don't know him but yeah i saw. I saw him match with benny. Apwg so all seen was that the like the hardcore match it was. I don't know if it was like a strictly hardcore match but they definitely did a lot of like strong style stuff vertebrae to each other and stuff like that i. I've seen clips of this match. Yeah and those vertebrae cours to crowd went nuts for it. I can understand. But to me i go. That looks scary. Man looks scary but yes. Here's here's the. The names that were released was the first one alexander wolf and then this one. I'm not sure how to say this. Name kavita debbie yeah And then there is drake words. Drake younger Brandy lauren who i believe came from evolve. Yes she's a. Joey jeno's girlfriend. Oh okay and then jake clements is a ref. Believe and then jasmine do q. Is ronda rousey earned down surprise me. Why because of just because there's like the connection they they still have always teased doing the four horsemen wrestling versus the four horsemen like a rhonda's posse but obviously that's a long way off because rhonda's pregnant now so you're talking about another year and a half. A ship sail. The ship has sailed. But i am still surprised because they never really actually gave her a chance. Maybe she asked for it. Maybe she wants to go back and mma because maybe she's not enjoying wrestling and maybe and then you have. This one's interesting. It's ezra judge this is ej. He actually trained at level up and he got signed. I'm guessing about a year ago. Something like that. And then vanessa born which actually surprised to see that one because they were trying to make a pretty good push for her i belie- thought on an xt pushing her for a while. Like i. i don't know what's going on over there because they had two women that they released pretty chelsea gray and they released recently to who yeah. I was surprised because she's really talented. Really good and i think so too man. I saw chelsea green and person one time. What is smoke show. Yeah she is beautiful in person man But yeah that's that's not that. I saw that vanessa born she got cut. 'cause i thought they were trying to make a serious push for her. But hey man sometimes you just you try to to put get somebody over and it just doesn't work and i don't know what you can do from there so yeah man they had to Make some room in next I can't blame them they. There's a lot of people signed development and to the nfc roster and you know you can only have so many So many fish in the pond especially right now like with all the stuff..

"Interesting but Yeah made oh man. Music queued up. And all that Roll up jake. Atlas getting dob karen grounds pretty pissed off trying to chase after ten db s after the match was over catches up to the limo. Diaz was in china. Open the door with all his mighty couldn't and the yossi roll the window down just a bit and Said cameron grimes. You know you're you're all right but you're no million dollar man and he just laughed in his face and told the driver drive on good shit right there. Good good share. I'd i had a nice hearty little chuckle at that. One alexander wolf have faced killian dane. I mean is pretty much. This wasn't even a three minute match. Y'all dame pretty much picking up to dub after alexander wolf decided he wanted to use a steel chair on killian dane and i was enable. You know to use that chair and all that as dame was able to do a running cross body on him and pretty much. Bom match was over post-match imperium turned on wolf. They be him down real bad. Kinda kinda sad we gotta talk about wolf in a hot second coz as probably most you guys now. There was some annex t releases that had went down earlier today which will talk about hot second. Llegado del phantasmal taken on timothy thatcher. Tomas chopper this was actually the match of the night. Boys went out over fifteen minutes. I actually had enjoyed. This ended up being a better than i had anticipated quite honestly. Although i didn't care for the finish i felt that the finish was totally unnecessary. I felt that the finish was crappy to a certain degree. And you know for me in a wide. Why does it seem like every time. I'm watching something in annex t. There's always some type of controversy that is going on in a match. There's all whether it'd be a tag match or singles match. Always feel like there's some type of fucker that's going on in my whole thing is man. We don't always need to have falker ry that's going on. you know. sometimes we can just let it be all about all right the better the better. Fuck in team wine. You know was also done in a better fucking team. One better man won the better woman one And that whole fucking thing with the grizzly young veterans. I i just i can't i can't i'm gonna keep on saying that. I need them to get the fuck off my tv already. I am not invested of all the folks. That's an annex t right. now it's nothing personal. I know these guys. I can only react from that that fan perspective and grizzled young veterans. They don't do anything for me. They just don't hate hate to say that but they they just don't may do i see something there. Do i see a little something. There's a little something. But i just don't know if it'll blossom. I don't know if it'll blossom in time for. Wwe to okay. This may take a couple years here. And i just don't have. Wwe is willing to invest that time in. Wait it out. See these guys you know. Figure it all out. Put it all together in fucking explode. I i don't know. I i just don't see that happening here. A leah losing to array kind of like a no surprise a right there. I mean i imagine was like about two minutes. Some change right there. area the var and tony niece. Taking on hit row is pretty much a squash match right here. Hit row picking up to dub Good show believe it or not. That's that's nfc. I did not miss anything from an x t. I mean if anything you had amber moon shots they re cut in the lower promo talking about how they're far from done against the way They also are aware of how dakota and raquel. They're pretty much kinda trying to jump the line in everything for tactile opportunities and all that so you kind of get the impression okay. So we're probably gonna see dakota. Raquel amber shotsie lockup at some point trying to figure out who the number one contenders are going to be to take on their respect. It and exceed women's champs and all that so i dunno i dunno bow See what else do we give. Bobby fish was interviewed. Really nothing there. He pretty much talked about how he helped kallio riley. Y'all more for revenge. On pete done and only larkin then the friendship that they used to have or. I may be still have who who knows what's going on here. But he knows that he owes. Pete donna received because he hasn't forgotten what pedone did to him. Couple months back that resulted in him being sidelined as a result so he pretty much issued a challenge to be done for next week. So we'll see how that plays out also Almost forgot about that. We've almost forgot about that. Indie heart will and candice laurey. They were chilling out a spa getting massages and all that news hilarious because while they had the little lines or whatever on there is avocado mask and all that crap going on one of the guys that was actually massaging andy hartwell. It was actually faulk in dexter. Loomis and dexter luma's ended up shit was fly. Next loomis ended up He's like oh shit yes. Failings were hurt because kansas laurey was just bringing up. Aren't you glad You know we got you so focused on this. And now you see what i'm saying with regards to at loser. Dexter luma's la la and indie kinda fell. Yeah you know you're absolutely right. You know who cares about that guy. He does suck la la la so were her. He stopped touching her and he he fucking role dow. You know it. It's kind of funny because you would think that. With the past couple of instances over annexed t programming. Andy hartwell khanna has an idea of her booze hands by now you would think He's kind of touched. You enough times dairies. Carry jew and all kinds of voters. Shit you think he kinda she kinda no but yeah okay whatever. Whatever it is what it is there But later on later on Something weird happens where.

You're listening to wrestling. Observer live with bryan alvarez and mike beebe on the sports byline broadcasting network becky. This show elber is here wrestling observer. Live mike several v also of wrestling observer dot com was talking about roy. You ready mike. Joy talk about that yesterday. I did but i wouldn't be Teasing your your twitch chat or any the listeners out there who would love to hear you rant about an hour now think about it later. I don't have a do you know what's yours weird about rob. I hated it. And i ranted about it and i totally forgot everything that happened on the show so i do have notes here if i wanted to go over it but i don't care and besides we need to talk about this This annex t show right here because very quickly mike without going on for an hour. Just a quick. What did you think of this show. Am i the only one. That was underwhelmed. Probably probably really you know. Yeah yeah i think so. I definitely not over well. Were you just welcomed. I was welcomed. I thought it was a nice salad. Show i like some of the aesthetic changes that they made to the shows. The graphics go. I think the the eagles skeleton logo combinations a little bit much but i again some of those aesthetics matter in of course you know the story lines. The stars need matter more but i lightly on rough and swerve. Scott i liked the way that they've of linked them with each other to kind of try to move things forward with them. I'm not the biggest cross crossman in the world. But i'm in the minority on that one and there seems to be a lot of people that like him. I don't think that the promo was that great. But i thought starting the show with it i thought they established that really well msk. I thought that was a nice showcase for them. I guess you either like them or you don't and it was kind of a weird match. Up in that drake maverick. You know being as part of the other team seem to get a lot of sympathy there which had people doing. Msk but they set up mercedes martinez and and Brain lock billy stark. And they move some things forward the main event. You know you can talk about that. I know you're going to get into that. It is what it is. I did pop huge. And i'm ashamed of myself because i hate this story. Line indy hartwell giving the thumbs up. I got to admit. I did pop for that. But that's a big problem. That's the biggest problem i have. Is that car. Ghana was a goofball. I know by. I like bronson read and austin theory a lot for them to be continuously tied up into this. I didn't like that. But escobar's a star. I like how they said up coscia. And 'cause she's getting that victory i thought was awesome in setting up the match done for later. I thought a lot of things really worked on. The show wasn't the greatest show in the world. No was in a nice base to move forward. I believe that it was other than i would have definitely changed the main event. But that's just me. Okay go on forever. Listen here's here's my whole point of the show. Everybody like i hate this show. Okay i thought the show was fine but my point is this is the first tuesday exte- show they've moved to tuesday. They're going to be on tuesday for the rest of their lives until maybe next year. Whatever but the point is they're tuesday's now. Okay so if you remember to watch tuesday now it's like oh well. Do i wanna watch every tuesday. Now that we know have a winston at wars anymore. oh it's the first takeover after the wrestlemainia takeover show. This is what we got everybody. Killian carrying crossed is a promo which was fine. Okay all right. We have killian. Dane and drake maverick versus. Msk for the tag team. Titles which was it was fine but you have to face teams the crowd like they were dead okay. I don't want to hear that. They were not dead because they were dead and they were dead for like most of the show here they were just sitting watching the show and they were dead and so the match was okay. But i'm watching this okay match in front of a crowd that's dead. We have Alexander wolf showing up to recruit killing but then they beat him up so in by the way what happened to him and timothy thatcher like is that going to continue because it appeared to have been completely dropped here on this show. we have a mercedes. Martinez deal that sets up a match later we had coal riley aftermath. Which was funny. They're being carted into the hospital or the medical center or the hospital like structure and they're screaming each other on. These gurneys is there that was great mercedes. Martinez beats jesse chimera two minutes zero heat from the crowd and then she chokes robert stone. Okay whatever we have a couple promos and everything like that and then yes we had those escobar then was good match. Kushida won the title. I don't want to complain. I know this will come off is a complaint. But i liked.

"Some of the best matches whether he was playing the wii character or whether he's playing fiend character but the matches were still they were they were okay they were okay too good And then you know. I know is using it was is used a Character when you look at the whole theme character as a whole and the firefly funhouse and all that encompasses it. I can understand how you liked. Joe i'll he looks at it as it's toco but he thinks it's really fucking stupid and and honestly i i can on some level i can totally agree with it because joe you know a long with everybody else on this show other than myself. You guys have been watching more wrassling over the last thirty years. That i can even fucking fathom so i can understand how he doesn't care for. I totally get it but for me that i took a you know a decade long break up until you know twenty fifteen. I think it works. I think it is a little silly but or would no no no no. I'm not saying that. I think just some times like the whole firefight funhouse while i think it's funny it. It's i don't know it's a little bit much but it doesn't bother him not to say that about anybody but it doesn't. It doesn't bother them. And you know when you look back and you have a character like i'm owing to compare the undertake because he's been one of the most infamous recognizable characters of all time. It's kind of along. Those same line is not the same thing by any stretch of the imagination. But it's one of those characters that if you watch wrestling on a consistent basis you're never gonna forget that the fiend ever existed or that the fire five house ever existed because whether it's good or bad whether you like it or not cemented into your brain as like like a shitty commercial jingle that gets stuck in your head you know so i can't say that the most overrated wrestler of the year is wyatt. I just can't agree with that. You want me to answer. Who you think who i think is i. I can't tell you. I'd have to really told you old birds while at and honestly you can't really argue that because he's coming to these matches mighty less than a handful it just it never works. It never works. It also goes back when they say worst match yields swampland. I'm like yeah. It wasn't that great but it was better to super show will go in the fame well and super showdown when you look at. This list did come up. As a worst major wrestling show was the wwe super show on february. Twenty seven. so exactly one year ago today from saudi arabia to me be saudi arabia There may have been a couple of moments you know like the greatest royal rumble. I was sliding under damri. I fell asleep. During that you know i saw titus slide under the rain and that was a cool moment and it was funny. We all good my ass but to me. They just never worked. So i think i would definitely agree with that M- anyway moving on from the worst stuff you had the european. Mvp was annexed to uk. Champion walter. I don't think anybody's going to argue that because the dude is just a dominant force. I'd love to see walter on on ross Imperium on raw this whole group. And i agree i i love imperium and i think that them as a group could be another one of those factions stables. Whatever you wanna call them that could be in the top five or ten of all time because all those dudes can work. And they're their charisma and their characters and the whole picture of all them together with walter as their leaders. Fucking awesome the to imperium. It's the same issue in its everybody actually. Uk you they don't have exposure they. Would you like. I agree with you. If they had more exposure they could be one of if not v. best In that's what it is like alexander wolf was what sanity and after your whole sandy thing. He was floating with just flowing water till he joined period. And it works. It really works nearer. Umberto were just was again trend water. One they were annex t champion tag team champions for a while right of recently. That's right before brisson go. I'm leaf but they're good they're taxing. They were transitional champions for nfc titles. And i think that the whole. Kobe thing i i don't think i know that colbert act. Obviously hurt a lot of the storylines. Like i think that if kobe wasn't a thing that you know an you k. Is again like developmental system where we would see imperium because we were we were starting to see imperium on exte- shows from time to time and then you did and i think he allied though earlier. I back in january last year. I think by now we would see nam as a prominent role on an xt they could have been battling the undisputed area area era or we would see them on raw. Or whatever i said before i think. Wwe is lacking in the whole action. Thing i i like seeing more because you know singles wrestler tag team wrestlers. Those are cool. But i like seeing those teams. You know that that was always a big part for a lot of people growing up with in the end you'll and the x. And you know nation nomination. Whenever i i like all right So had we not had gobert. Unfortunately you know. I think that it would be playing a more prominent role Women's wrestling mvp. I know a lot of you guys like on.

"K. if you have not seen this is on the W. W. E. network and it took on an X. T. a show you can see every Wednesday at on the USA network I just thought that it was to recruit top to bottom including the main event where imperium takes on the undisputed you're out that was a match that lasted thirty minutes unfortunately there was an injury there to Alexander wolf in that match up so in the being four against three but still seven of the eight guys really pulled it off nobody I know we got your book or not on Sunday I hope this vehicle up on Sunday as much fireworks at the word debate and packed you back because it got the white meat pretty wild wild transcribed is still there die from drug my handsome here Mike Wallace thank you so like your your your to be quite a mix of war the off with Max is the right okay let's off the knobs great if you go back to the year eighteen we're growing and growing and growing it was fantastic it was it was in every time you look around that there is another match you can put on there for match of the year and that definitely was it too what did you think you know I was not disappointed but I was expecting more from the NXT women's championship match up with a real Ripley until the storm again you see Tony storm is a veteran and real Ripley still young so trying to figure things out and there's no question that they are developing a star here we Ripley is a ten minute match expect a little bit more but are you see the growth of Ripley I just want to see a little bit more from her yeah I expected a little bit more for the therefore in the top five eight well you have to follow actually it's called either highly bear Johnny Gargano as if it's bad for any performer whether male or female and that's kind of the hard part about it join these take over so that you always have that one that's where why you look back at it without crowd noise it's really good but the crowd what did I do stop there for the top spot there before debate if that is true in your time on the D. I. Y. match with Johnny Gargano and and Choppa I guess mustache mountain I could see that best of ten of our best of nine whatever it is because they mandate just tore the house down in and here's what I was in the back while mine as as watching the show if you are an NXT fan and there's plenty of them in the country right and you're not X. two U. K. fan and this is why I thought NXT dudes the best job they could in the last three weeks to try to tell you Hey here's dragon off Hey here's Jordan doubling the if you haven't seen it Hey here's here's mustache found if you haven't seen them here's your here's the imperium they try to push those guys down your throat for it so you can be ready so you can have you know this this feeling of Hey I know they are but man three nice is not enough it and I thought the Houston crowd was pro NXT and really I would drag it off to confirm ballot that is again a great match they didn't know anything about dragon off the for profit Ballard I get it I just got the crowd just was not didn't know much about next to you Kay but I but it's okay because because of this event they'll be more viewers I think watching an X. two U. K. to do are in very curious about them based on what we saw on Saturday for worlds collide right here what I want thank you Kate for the UK France they just had their tent full of back in black for the week but here's the bigger out that we were able to be part of the fact that far more rubble weekend now they got more exposure for the brand for the people watch domestically and about thousand big went for NXT it's also a big win for one of one the data bank because everybody going to this event the fact their days are like look at the car like all I'll be there to run through the area now argues that alot of people both here not a lot of people don't drag it off I mean even this part of the match in the in the main event will be able to send Walter they already looked well I've got a really good fight every brand as a whole and specially a U. K. gain the proper exposure they need it besides the off the black.

You know the creative player Tony Storm when you know that in the ring with those sick is and they save lives. They do Yeah it was could match those two of them have been solid and good fodder. I'll have anything to drink dot. So do you think that this match felt like it was thrown in Really only because they needed to have some kind of top tiered women's match and who you're GonNa have you can have team champion and championship dog dog from K.. And here you go go out there and do your thing another bomb ripped moment imperium versus undisputed air. Yes yes close yeah closing out the show. Drake Yeah E. Lie. Tell me what you love about this other than Alexander Wolff died. I said that's an early what he died. No Mandalay came. uh-huh kicking this perilous Chin was bound in each is is dad died. He did great way to end the pay review. I thought it lived up to the hype. The two biggest factions stables groups entities. He's in professional wrestling. If he asked me you. E and an imperium facing off head to head it went off without a hitch Walter going through the table All of a sudden coming out on the on the apron near the end of the match and that crowd was popping hard for Walter Yemen. Solid those fucking chops. Jesus Christ yeah do you feel like when Alexander Wolf one out it became three and four four hundred. Do you feel that hurt. Undisputed era in any way shape or form by losing to a team man down no no no not at all because you know if they had come out and it was four on three to start the match which maybe a little but no I mean imperium over. I mean they're bigger than all of undisputed era for the most most part they're all towering over undisputed era the fact that undisputed era almost won that match and a couple of spots. And No. Okay I agree because of the end sequence yeah jumping out zig on everyone. That was huge. Yeah yeah there was ending sequence made it very believable that they got caught for the it wasn't like they were overpowered or powered. They got caught. You know they made a mistake and there is a couple of times like you were saying that it seemed like even imperium was about to get caught when Walter you know. Hit the power bomb on o'reilly or strong and then Adam came from behind with the with the last shot They were going to. Don't get caught there as well. But they didn't and obviously imperium stood tall. And in our Perot's scorecard. I picked imperium. I did it. It wasn't it seemed like it was foolish to not pick him period. Because there's so much there's so there's so many ways to you should make undisputed heir. Look great that this was a time when it was okay. Okay to make them take a loss on. Walter is the man by the way Joe. Yeah and the other. The other thing with that is I picked bobby fish to take that fall as well because Roddick strong just lost the North American title. keithly right. So that's a loss for Roddy Kyle O'Reilly or Bobby Fish. Losing one. This made sense to me because then you then it's not so much undisputed era like. Oh there's a weak link here it is ready. Strong took another loss already. Played that Yup and it's time to get away from that or stay away from that because they got away from it so someone else taking that pinfall. Besides Roddy makes it look like okay. There's things to fix you know. There's there were allowed to have problems and still keep going rather than making it look like one fucking guy. This guy is one the new Rodney not so strong so I thought that was a really good way to end it as well worlds collide or hard times twenty better at put you on this by. I don't know why you didn't expect that you should have fucking bag that new long.

"Live Dave Meltzer also wrestling observer dot com doing the show here from a cruise ship Jericho crews out in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. I don't even know where we are but we might go Mexico Roy. No I don't think so. But anyway the main event of the worlds collide show here on Saturday night and Walter Fabian. Eichner Marcel Bartell Alexander Wolf Wolf Against Undisputed Era Adam. Cole Kyle O'Reilly Bobby Fish and Roderick Strong eight-man tag team match the match will be great. It should be incredible. Yeah I mean it's it's it's going to be a great show. It's just like a but it's it's not a lot of appeal not a lot of story lines to it. So that's the main of their in. Those are the five matches which I mean. We just got done talking about that W. E. UK show where they won five matches. They want two and a half hours. That means to thirty minute matches Che's matches don't necessarily need to be thirty minutes but this doesn't have Walter Against Joe. Kafi these these matches these matches can go thirty minutes. Like when I look at the stuff thin valor and dragged off. Could but. I'm sure it won't because because that would be. It's just not strong enough to to go that long. But you know the Mustache Mountain tag match with garnering CIAMPA. If they went twenty five minutes I mean that would be like perfect time I think and you know with the eight man tag. I don't know if I would go twenty five minutes but you can do it. There's enough good people in there to pull that off. So then Sunday we've got the royal rumble symbol. And as of this moment we have twenty two men four women and then eight matches on the show. So we've they've only announced four women were a couple of days away while I presume that on annex t tonight they'll announce a bunch of women and then on smackdown smackdown they'll announce a bunch that you women why we've only got an really of the four women. Only two women have been announced Farrah. So we're talking all of these raw shows including the go home show. The only announced to Women Free Thirty Woman Royal Rumble Charlotte flair and Charleston. Sarah Logan Sarah Logan means nothing at Saratoga Nelson. Rashi now sat on our twitter. Yeah right all right. So here's the lineup. For the men's royal rumble we have Roman reigns brock listener. Aj Styles. Eric Ruin Randy Orton Ramos. cheerio ricochet drew McIntyre Elias. Corbin Ziglar Otis Tucker Roussev Lashley. He also Black Buddy Murphy Braun. strowman Shinsuke Nakamura. Seth rollins and Samoa Joe Listener is number one. The story line is number one. He's going to beat everybody. Everybody and win. Which I guess means he'd be able to choose his own opponent for Wrestlemainia and I guess the I guess the two questions are a hey who eliminates lesser And they were eliminated since probably the one who's GonNa face them at wrestlemanias. Actually that's three questions so question. What is who eliminates awesome question? Number two is eliminated early for the big shock or is eliminated the end. I think you gotta save him for the end. The way this we're almost been built up all the way Eh. That would mean that whoever brock's gotta stay in there for an hour or close to an hour but also here's the other question so let's say that I'll I'll just throw out whoever. Aj styles dramatic not going to be AJ McIntyre a whoever. I won't be him either but but he's better showcase whoever let's just say true. Okay so if drew McIntyre throws out Brooke Listener then means is probably going to be drew in Brock at wrestlemainia probably. So that's the case Someone that has to throw out the guy who threw out brock. Someone has limited unless he goes all the way but if he why would he go all the way. Because you're already getting Brooke Lesser Match Right To. I mean you could do that if you're the last two but then it's kind of a waste of the royal rumble because the guy the champion championship match. Then you should have a break from the other brand. Yeah of course I I guess you could have but then you could still do. You could do that. Just had which theoretically drew McIntyre and brock listener and then but you still got elimination chamber to choose the other contender could do that as well or you have. The the old brock gets eliminated comes back. Kills everyone in the guy gets thrown out there or smackdown guys on the ground and you think the truck tire one someone tosses him. There's a thousand things you could do. But that's but all the ones that you suggested it been overdone do there's been thirty five royal rumbles or something like that and then you get a new finish. I hope well. Yeah but I've seen too many battle royals where you had that diversion guy where you think. Everyone's eliminated and they just did it with the women's ends match the other day. It's like not you don't do it in the build up and then do the same finish in the thing even though I know you know between between the battle Royal Finishes Che's that that are overdone in the three finishes where everybody is the exact same finish over and over again. I think it's time for like a little more Tori on those two finishes so the Women Charlotte Arlit Alexa Nikki. Sarah Yeah it's GonNa be quite a royal rumble at this point. Now every single women on both rosters plus a ton of next he women women are GonNa be in it. I mean when you get thirty I mean it's pretty much every woman that's TV time you will get you to thirty and every woman that gets TV time in annex. Not You know so I mean in theory. Show like Shirai and Ria Ripley and everyone from down there really Shayna Baseler who I I actually think China base should be one of the favorites to win the whole thing shot. Flares always a favorite just because Charlotte flare I'm trying to think who else becky Lynch is not. Becky Lynch is probably not going to be an instance. She's a champion. Then there's other choices but does to me to me sort of standardized logical favorites so the universal title it is the fiend versus Daniel Bryan in a strap match. Yeah so storylines goofy. Brian's explanation is the fiend keeps going into a whole so if he puts a strap. Strap me can't go down. And his whole again he can though all he'd just pull Daniel Bryan and then Lebron's can come up with no more hair. Yes this is very wacky but at hey it's strap match so I mean Bryant could lose doing a clean job or bray or bray I mean why are you going to take the title right now. No they won't. It doesn't even make you you know. Don't you think that it's going to be Roman reigns in Bray just kept apart. They've never touched that match. And now we're going to Wrestlemainia and Roman reigns is clearly the number one guy in the brand so it just feels like they've avoided that match for so long. That almost has to be the match. I don't mind the match I do. But like we've seen in Roman reigns in the WRESTLEMAINIA title picture like Five Thousand Times. He's always going to be because that's what the number one guy's always going to be on top and should be so then we've got well. Speaking of Roman Roman reigns king. Corbin falls count anywhere so the thing that I worry about is that for in Corbin wins this match and then Roman wins about a roof. Because that's how bin snakes. Yes but you know what so. I'm all stuck about this stupid dog. Food Stamp. So if Roman reigns if Roman reigns loses falls count anywhere because eight thousand people run in right then he wins the rumble. Yes Corbin I mean. They could still the deal again where this time Corbin get to choose the stem and his stip is loser. Eats dog food so Roman gets his win. Back and humiliates Corbin. And it's something to do in the meantime between Royal Rumble and Wrestlemainia. I mean they could still do all of these things even though they didn't do this thing where uh-huh Roman reigns and Corbin Wrestle for the title shot because the idea is is that like you may have won the royal rumble. But I beat you. Yeah so I deserve a title shot. And then that's you you know a main event for Saudi or wherever you know they've got they've got two shows between mania right. Yeah Yeah and the Saudi show. God knows what they they. They don't seem to have anything like it's not like last year where we last night. He show where they had like all these outsiders and things like that that were all there and ready. We have becky lynch verses. This is Oscar for the limbaugh women's title. Which I presume becky just wins because nothing else would be ridiculous? Yeah shorty then so so input becky defense against the winner of the rumble. Yeah Yeah Okay that makes makes it was the rumble supposed to be about. It could be Bailey Bailey Liam Lacey Evans have their own thing going which probably is going to be more than a one show thing program I would. I would think yeah. They're facing off for the smackdown women's title and we we have shortage G. versus shameless. which sucks to be shortage? Big Return Matt. So I'm sure you wins and and then on Friday and Umberto Correo for the US title. I mean that's the they're the ones that are gonNa have the the the. The spotlight is in the sense of Like if they're match gets over big stylistically it probably. They should have very good match if they're match gets over. Big Vince will be real high on them because they're young guys and good looking in all that but if the people flat for that match you never know having just GonNa React Act you know. Well there's two problems with this theory yes number one is if you look at the matches on this show. I mean there's only two options for that pre show I guess you could do anything. But short g shameless and Andrea shortage. Burqa Correo shortages. And they're going to do a two hour pre show so there's going to be more than one match. Yup they may add matches to that like you know there's there's a bunch of mentions they could add to. I'm just afraid to match is going to be on the pre show. Nobody's GonNa care. It is possible and I think that there may be a fight over that one just because you know it soon Berto Korea's return and all that there is a store more of a storyline behind. Can you know they've done. Storyline matches that. They've advertised hard. Like one of the early Roussev Lashley matches a pre show match or something crazy. No that was Daniel Bryan match. Uh Why is this on the pre show Brian. There's old no no all the time there's match like you would say that like MHM wasn't the when they had the survivor series and they had all the champions face each other the tag team title match on the show..
