"On the sports byline broadcasting that. We're again to show bryan alvarez here wrestling observer live makes him reveal so also wrestling observer at dot com forty five seven eight zero seven five. Six six is the phone number. Forty five seven eight zero seven five six six. We'll take calls in this next segment right here. So here says speaking of t have they announced anything for the valentine's day takeover they haven't even revealed the name of the event unless they just call a takeover thirty three young for those of you. That don't know there's a takeover and eleven days there's a takeover in eleven days We do not know what it's called. We do in fact no-one match however and that is a match. I actually didn't want to see when. I watch inex- exte- last week. They got all excited to see this. Shriver's tony storm singles match but then mercedes martinez ran in and now it's a three way. I have nothing against mercedes martinez but they led me in a direction where i wanted to see a singles match which singles matches are almost always better than three ways with real exceptions but it is an exte- and we like our multi person matches and so that's a three way for the next women's title that is the only match we know we know that match. We know the date we know nothing else. So maybe we'll know more tonight. I would hope so you know would figure they guard jamil and Kushida would be made official. Maybe dexter loomis austin theories since they've gone in that direction are the finals of the dusty classic going to be then to that lineup correctly. Possibly maybe i'm pretty sure they could do the finals on that show. Yeah yeah it was a couple. At least there's some options there at least just do a bunch of ed exte- or whatever that show is to five. Yeah just doing. There is tool five takeover all right. Let's see what else we have here. Everybody person asked me the same question. What's going on with takeover well as a correction of both of these people. I believe they have officially announced that women's three way so they have announced one match for takeoff on social media. But yeah was on social media. They do not television. But are you surprised at all if they now something on television. I am surprised. Avs person thinks he is going to be in the mud tonight. Well here's the thing. They announced on social media. That edge is going to be on the show and the vast majority of the times at least last year the year before that annex t one or did well is when they announced people from the main roster there were going to be on the show. So it's possible that the announcement edge is going to be on. The show might do very very well. What i think they're going to do is open the show with edge and then tease something with edge for the main event of the show. What also will either you know what will help or hurt and exte- more than announcing that edge is going to be on the show whether they get that overrun because last week they did not get an overrun by. They show ended right at the top of the hour and it was actually kind of a disaster not having overrun because they were rushing in the timing was all messed up. But last last week there was no overrun get their usual nine minute overrun and they announced that will be out there in the final segment of the show and edges on annex t television during the overrun with no eighty w competition. They probably will do a very very large nine minute segment. And if you add that into the rest of the show that will boost the overall viewership in the head to head yes. It's still considered head to head that nine minute overrun. So that i think is gonna help them more than just edge appearing on the show so far i mean if you look at the numbers if you look at the raw number after edge won the royal rumble if you look at the raw number after edge debuted last your edges not meant much if anything to the numbers. I do think that he'll means something. Ten x t. But we'll see how much i think we found nothing. Wwe could do help their numbers last year the way that those were going In the way things ultimately happened. There're so i you know. I know edge in order to get a little bit of heat for. He's not a draw but there was no drawn. Wwe w year they weren't a kovic was the draw in wwe last year actually bottomed out as far as well. Let me say this. Interestingly enough that show where they teased the christian was going to have a match that move numbers way more than the announcement that edge was going to be on raw for the first time in nine years. I don't know why. I don't wanna edge to get mad at me. I'm just telling you what happened. It didn't mean anything. Yeah just. I don't point the fingers baddeley's in a blame him as much as you could say. Hey yet. it didn't work but nothin did last year now. I don't know what's going to work for tonight. But i would take advantage of the fact that he was there and have some sort of hot way to finish that show. Have some sort of brawl have some sort of something that's logical obviously but is aesthetically pleasing enough where people will not flip the channel Whether you have the overrun or not obviously you wanna lock him in. Its early as you can before that overrun happens and you do get that spike up numbers. So it'll be interesting. It'll be interesting to see if tnt gets one actually they. Hey actually hand one out to e w tonight because it is beach brave never had one so i know they've never had one but if you were going to let's say if you're going to get one tonight would be the perfect show to do that with to because you're having a special theme show so i don't think it will go in that direction. But if they were going to have one now would certainly be the time to do it for since i just wanted to say. I'm super excited for tonight's beach break show. Aws a great job of making these special. Dynamite shows feel like big time pay per view events. I know i will be rewarded for watching. Because they actually care about delivering a good product to their fans. I didn't know they were. They were paying fans. Sounds like this guy's on the payroll. Wow what other multi-million dollar entertainment empire continues to bleed viewers and despite this gets rewarded with huge bailout bay. Contracts gonna be down to one million next year. I don't think they're gonna drop to one million next year. Let's do some math. You're ready wait. Nascar fits in that category. all righty. let's see so one seven zero zero zero zero. Hold one zero right. That that's the average during football season. Okay let's see minus four hundred and twenty five thousand all right minus four.

Live a mike zimmer. V also wrestling observer dot com. Tonight is noted we have got ten segments announced for the annex or the awa show enemy talking about. Aws tony shivani interviews sting special interview with the new awa champion. Kenny omega the inner circle ultimatum shack l- addressee double universe with tony shivani orange cassidy versus mj for the dynamite diamond. Ring young bucks vs jack evans. And where the challenges win a title match lance archer pinta henry phoenix versus kingston butcher blade. Fdr versus griff garrison and brian film junior dustin rhodes versus ten aba. action now as we'll make everybody mad problem not mine. Normally the wednesday show is all about eight w versus inex- t but to me somehow. I'm so much more. Invested in aws versus an impact wrestling. Then an xt. Now if you want to get mad at me go for it but to be friendly during the break. I tried with all my might to find out what was going on on the next show tonight. Nothing announced except finn. Ballard announced that he is returning to its litterbox. Do not get mad at me. Those were his words at x. T is the litterbox. That's what fin valor said in his. Promo what else is going on tonight. Far from takeover. Well i wouldn't twitter nothing. Nothing announced except for valor returning when tea instagram. I keep being told you want to find out what's on the show instagram. I go instagram nothing. Zilch finn bella returning to its litterbox. It's all i know about tonight. But i did notice kind of a little bit of an aside but i thought it was funny before the takeover plus it all things on instagram and one of the things they posted was one of those little videos and the video is of a wheel spinning okay and there's a spinning wheel and the caption was. Where do you think it will land for. Tonight's triple threat. Match with damian priest johnny gargano and leeann rough. It's a little spinning wheel and the spinning wheel has four options. You ready for this option. One is damian. Winds option to is leeann wins option. Three is gargano wins. You wanna guess what option four was count out. What since. When can you get counted out at three way. So anyway there's rules every day in me. That i didn't know about today's rule is apparently according to ed exte- on their instagram posted by them. You can be counted out in a three way. Learn something new every day. I didn't learn what's on the show tonight but learn about that rule. So anyway mike. Did you watch the incredible interview segment with kenny. Omega don. callous. That's josh mathews impact last night. Don't even tell me no depending on who you are. There were three stooges sitting there on that bus. My picture of two stooges right behind on the shoulder there but Yeah i saw the that interview. And i saw the paid advertisement that tony kahn. Antoni shivani had so. I did see that. I didn't see the rest of impact. But i did see those two segments so the segment was so great. They're all on a bus. Josh matthews. is there kenny. Omega kenny omega normally shows up to aid l. Either in his gear or in his pajamas but now he's got some sort of wacky designer jeans. He wore a semi nice shirt. He wears his aviator's old time. He's got like some bracelets on and he's celebrating about all his linke's wearing he's the greatest. Don callous fantastic. I got so many emails. Last night is is day was talking about on the show. Little while ago don callous grew up a big fan of bobby. Heenan nick park winkle. And i had so many people that sent me texan emails last night. Oh my god. If you remember bobby hedonistic bach winkle they said you gotta watch this segment calluses the best. They're just varying impact. Kenny omega. So cocky such a great. He'll apparently the idea is kenny. Omega may in fact become the belt collector. Because he's got the w title they acknowledge. These got the triple a super omega heavyweight title. But she better not lose by the way. You actually goes down to triple mania. Then don kelsey talk about a lot of great champions here on this show so i think maybe i maybe reading too much into it but that appears to be at least one of the ideas so they do their whole ten minutes. Stick it's great. And then they promised that kenny will be coming to dynamite to make a big announcement why we make a big announcement on this impact show. Even though they gave ten minutes of their time to impact. I thought the whole thing was fantastic and on top of that. They had the paid advertisement with tony. Kahn and tony. Vanni tony kahn. I don't think he's going to be a character on dynamite but clearly idea is. He's the baby face owner of dynamite. But like vince mcmahon memphis. He goes to this this low level impact show and he's a total. He'll i couldn't stop kenney said. Maybe i'll even buy this company. Ask tony you ever worked for impact. Tony says once eighteen years ago. Then i quit the business awesome. I loved it it is the best storyline going and i cannot wait to see where it goes on the show tonight. Anything you'd like to add. You've you've sat back there. Well oh let me guess. You didn't like it that. I didn't say that at all i do. I not reveling in it like you are as the best storyline on earth. But i'll say he was one. Lana sure yes. I'll go. lana there. You go Nothing better okay. Don cal's is great. I mean that's number one. First and foremost he adds a lot. And here's what is true. Kenny omega is not anywhere near the promo nor will he ever be the nick. Bach winkle was but count wise for what he does in the ring this combination as an updated version of a bach winkle in in. I can see whether i can see where they're going with that. And siris or cyrus don callous. As bobby heenan i think is great don callous as kenny's mouthpiece he just sits back there. Arrogant and cocky and smug it's perfect. I mean it is a really a great combination. i don't know if this helps impact. I don't know how much i wanna see tony. Kahn do paid advertisements. Tony kahn needs a cd. Scott there needs to be somebody on that show. So we don't have so much tony and i want to see him. Be the focal point of anything. I don't even want to see him on the screen. I get why he is. But i would love to see somebody else. Kinda take that heat for him. But i don't know if this is really going to help impact. I heard the numbers were.

"Of also being big is he's he's not he obviously is not a body guy weightlifter. That's for sure but it's not like he's not strong either so you know i. It's i think it shows you. How well he does his job that sometimes you know the she thing you are so wrapped up in the fact that this guy has got to be killing the other person as well as dying a million deaths let me look at how he sells. In part of that may be true. It's just that i can't flush out what it is. Because there's such great workers for years vaulter should be the uk champ for five years. Listen this story of this match. One of the stories is it exactly. One man has gotten a win over vaulter and it was dragging off and vaulter beat the hell out of this guy. Any decisively defeated him. He practically killed the guy. So who beats vaulter a coffee brother. I mean pete. Dunne's now in the regular ed exte- promotion who does be vaulter savater thing when we were kids. You know kids but you know teens. In ninety two ninety three the era of like who can beat vader. Then you start like. Is there a monster. That can be vader ron simmons. Okay with his athletic. All those things and it's like you know in some ways the same sort of field because they are going to have to build someone they are going to be. Part of the story is who can stop this guy. What from what. Country i mean. He's gone through so many already in his career. Who is going to be. The first finally launches a wedge imperium and takes out walter evidence thrown out these rampage. Brown ballard tyler. Bates you know the answer is everybody. Don't pick him. What's the rush. Person might not champion for three years until somebody comes along fine with things. Just do them. There's another great. Wwe thing you know. It's not just them. it's wrestling too. But you know sometimes patients you know is a virtue that is incredibly rewarded. When it's time to do something then do it. And there's no. We've been talking about the lack of attention that next to you gets on this side of the pond anyway and frankly i'm not sure how much it even gets over there. But regardless of that you know they need to make something happen. They need to make something and move and they seem to be doing that right now. And if this is the story line than great let the story line go on for a long time who cares flipping titles doesn't mean anything if it doesn't mean anything but people here think tyler bait which not at this exact moment. But i wouldn't be at all surprised if down the road. Tyler was a guy that beat him. Tyler is a fan tastic professional wrestler and people believe in. He's also a fantastic baby face but if it were my company. This does not happen for at least six months to a year. Because i want to do that match with fans hell. Yeah because a guy like tyler needs the fans to get behind him. Needs a place be stomping their feet and going crazy needs that big pop when he wins. Why unseat vaulter. Before he can get that reaction says based on the success of volterra versus dragon. Do you think that other wrestlers and wwe or elsewhere. We'll try to pull off or out do a match with that much violence well. Everyone always tries to copy whatever works. It's not just violence. It was a well-worked match with a well told story and violence so.

"Just to leave open just in case it doesn't work I mean I do think they're going to try and give us a solo run because I have to say wrestling has been getting better. Watching is as clumsy as at times. Exchange. Maybe. I'll be good for ability to go back to Ed exte- maybe maybe it'll be good for them to try some stuff alone by just think everyone knows how close they are it just felt efusing credibly forced you know I don't know I just. As I say I know people might find him unbearable by those eighty one would want to see the iconic sexually split up. See whether do maybe just manage each other because they just can't team. Maybe yeah. Maybe Billy's about mouthpiece and I do think it's Rally. Maybe who knows but we'll have to say but as of now, the iconic can no longer team and riot squad are the number one contenders to Jackson Baseline, which is a scary thought for Ryan Morgan I'm not GonNa lie that's just frightening. then. Moving onto the mysterious. Before the match Seth and Murphy you obviously came out seth newsradio angry and he's Blaming Murphy for screwing, up toes into get out. Slap Him in the head tells me to shut his mouth kind of stuff. Seth really played this. He'll roll really really well, I have to say Murphy's played like his party really well. He's got the door coordinator set file just got the seth order they has. Literally literally like that Dominic clothesline Murphy from behind nosy going the ramp and looking back at rollins and ran down and got the match underway. He's very impressive for being really new to this. Yes. Yes and I I really do think seth rollins has been one of the best people to put him up against like on a rotation. He sells for him kind of got. You can see guiding dome from one moment into another. Something I feel I still feel dumb obey slack on like the storytelling in the ring like he's clearly talented. I WANNA see. Now, what next I wanNA see dominant go against someone else now sets kind of carried him in here Yeah the. Stuff afterwards like the mysterious firmly backstage and the mom looking like she's going to cry and I want them to start treat him like a wrestler, not a child you know. That that has to stop quick because they've told that story now we get it. We've seen it great for what next I WANNA I wanNA start to see something next I mean set saw the family packaging stumped more to be fair but as I say I think seth has done wonders for dominate is just what can dominate do now to build on it I think the me Are they going around that rates hurt. Yeah. I. Wonder Like I wonder. Yeah. Because I'm I'm assuming it was getting dragged on the tag matches and stuff like that..

"We'll get into the meat of everything here today. Yes it is true. Aws signed Eddie Kingston. We've talked about this last week I noted that as of last week had not been signed yet but from talking to people there, the feeling was that it was inevitable that he was going to be signed and there you go and he kingston now part of all league wrestling. Best News. I've heard all day quite frankly in terms of news for quite a while. Actually he's been a huge fan of Eddie Kingston and here he is getting a shot. For A E W. smackdown tonight, two title matches. More, we have got Bailey versus Nikki Cross for the smackdown women's title. We have a styles versus granite metallic for the Intercontinental. Title. I have a feeling that's going to be angled but I don't know that for sure and Naomi will be facing Lacey Evans and the way they're advertising it is the Mandy Rose Otis love story continues so they will be back. On the show tonight. Ratings for Wednesday. Only a couple of things of real note by the return of Live Sports, Major League Baseball. The total Wednesday night wrestling audience was up to one point four, eight, million viewers on Wednesday night one point five percent higher than the previous week. Dynamite seven, hundred, seventy, three, thousand viewers and an annexed T. seven, hundred and seven thousand viewers eighteen to forty, nine, Awa number six and I believe in Exte- was I think twenty eighth. On cable. So all of that is is roughly the same all of the demos roughly the same as always one every demo except over fifty, and in fact, one of the main reasons that annex t was up. was a huge gain in over fifty which was kind of interesting actually because they W, they had a drop in older viewers and the presumption was that the drop in older viewers were viewers the decided that they were going to watch baseball. But for an x t, they had those older viewers. So it's it's interesting that it appears at least to a degree that the difference between the ED exte- and the a w audience is that the next audience is largely older W., e. fans and they're gonNA. Watch me I mean, we've seen this happen with things other than sports who've seen this happen with debate. Sam National News Stories. That hurts the w audience more than the annex t audience w audience audience seems to be there in a sports more so than the Annex T. so there's if they're sports competition like baseball, which attracts an older audience awa loses at audience but for whatever reason and exte- is not they're older audience grows. So the thing that was different this week. Is One point four eight zero million viewers the combined number four Awa annex t beat. The third hour of raw. More wrestling fans watched a w an annex. T live been watched the third hour of rob. If you combine the W in annex t eighteen, forty, nine number, it is zero point, four eight which beat raw the overall three hour raw. That today's zero point seven in eighteen to forty nine as noted by Dave or maybe Paul Fontaine those numbers would have been unthinkable just a few years ago. So the story now which I mentioned last night in the Brian issue, which is kind of interesting as aws W. T. are battling each other. They're going head to head but at the same time, the two promotions are basically teaming up. To slowly take over the viewership of Ron smackdown. So it's very, very interesting, more people watched. Aws inex- t live been watched that third hour of raw and the way that Ross going in the last three weeks, they've set all time low records a few times now just in the past three weeks. So it is very possible that once especially come September football season etc I mean it's possible that Wednesday might regularly be beating the viewership for raw on Monday and smackdown on Friday in certain demos. And in total viewers in some in some cases. So there you go. That's that's the interesting a numbers coming out of Wednesday. So also we had the wwe earnings report. We talked about this a little bit yesterday. And here's just here's the general information and I'll talk more about it. W Be released their twenty twenty quarter two numbers which showed a year over year decrease but a record year to date revenue record. Bullied by their TV contracts and some big savings with not running live shows. So before I get into specifics here this is the gist of it everybody. In nineteen hit. and W E was forced to cancel Wrestlemainia and they stopped running all of their house shows which had already started to do and they stopped running raw and smackdown live. Now, they run in the performance center and they take these shows and they go on the airwaves. Okay. Now. Also W we furloughed we don't even know the number, but it could have been as many as a hundred people. From all different divisions in WB they got rid of wrestlers. Of agents. One of them to our benefit because Lance storm returned. So. When this happened. You know we noted in you know there are people defending this on other publicly traded company I got. cut anybody. Ring of honor hasn't done a thing. They haven't gotten rid of anybody impact wrestling hasn't gotten rid of anybody. A W hasn't gotten rid of anybody new Japan. I can go on and on all of these different wrestling promotions, they took care of all of their employees during the pandemic or they're independent contractors..

"Is an xt based on the fact. A The main event and Wow? Wow what a match and I think that you could have had that match on the pay per view. Bike. Was Entertainers Sale, and then they went over twenty minutes. By does it was man? It was special. They did a good job well. It was a huge moment to fatiguing Knox right to find herself in the in the first you know title match a for a career in that moment in a main event in the way that that was to deliver in that capacity speaks volumes about her in her future, so I complete understand why you would pick. Another thing real quick about die Jakovic and leave. I think there was something else at play there i. don't think Matt Match was about that match pro wrestling. We all know that right. It's always about what's coming in the future, but when you noticed. When Keith Lee offered the shock to Jakovic and he was like. Hey, I'm in my clothes like I'm ready to wrestle week. Let's do this tonight. Die Jakovic was hesitant. He was like Oh shit like he wanted to say something to him like he was like all right now like like. Maybe he had an injury, or maybe he wasn't optimal. Definitely feels like something. He can swing back around later mark. Something I didn't tell you that Wednesday night was. This was happening in my life. And I didn't get the rightful chance, and then keeps like Amana chances a chance I gave you the chance out of respect. Don't come back. You need to earn the spot now, and he can be like well I earned it, but you didn't. You didn't show me the respect. You think you showed me I. had this happened? I had this happened or I found out about this my personal life I don't know onto saying. It feels like there's something more to that mark so I'm GonNa be keeping my eyes on that because I think we both know that we haven't seen the end of Leeann Jakovic, I hope we've seen the end of it for this current incarnation, yeah? I mean the flushes, Goldfish or something you never know. A. Would have made upset. Certainly would have made me upset. All right so bar cannery has ed exte- as his weekly winner I am going with Eighty W. We can get into it a little bit before we get to our same bursary preview. And then we got Jordan grace, impact champ coming up here in a few short minutes. I just felt like aws, a slightly better show. I thought they were really good shows to begin with across the board. As always I feel like we always talk about with Wednesday night I just thought complete factor match for match for match for match. Awa was better especially when you open with cody and sunny kissed the way they did, and I mentioned this with bully, but one thing that I really liked mark. Mark and and I want to get your thoughts on it. I just loved how aws diving headfirst in with Sonny Kiss Right. No like padding. No questions about what you're getting like. That entrance was like boom there sunny kiss. That's sunny. Kiss represents boom there sunny kisses ass. Yeah, it's a dude like it. Deal with it. We don't give a fuck where a W I love that. No apologies, you plant your flag and you make that statement I thought they were I. thought they did that in a very very solid in very realistic and just a very heartfelt way, I loved that opener with W. You know what I did too I love the fact that they are giving people a chance They're been showing diversity. The showing included in all the things that they said they were gonNA. Do Yeah, and you came tonight at, but I do WanNa see coating rose not me's. We're fan, call end as we and say that you know. Coating looks like he's been a hill I. Don't think code is being. He'll I think code is bringing a defensive because the title is on the line. It's a pay per view him every week. And, he's taking challenges that he don't even know some of these people. So he's gotta go all out and A. Sometimes you gotta step on a neck or to to get to the top. And that's the way I see. Cody being hyper aggressive because he has to, and that's worse is job. Position is job titles. Pro Wrestler. He's not out there to be. The babysitter of some new wrestled has come in and try to take what he's got. You, know and I have to give it to you. You know yeah I did enjoy What's going on with coating? I just in the match was signing kiss, but in the last three or four weeks. For Sure Joseph. He's dealing with the TV title, and he was making a name for that title. Whoever beats him? They better be a mugger. Because he is making is making this title. Mean something. And I wouldn't want to be together came in there if I. If I wasn't ready to get the job done. Well, yet is but that being said I think we can win Casino which are saying you can flip a coin I think I disagree. Shows Because of the main event. You know, but you know A. A lot of what I didn't like is why chosen exteriors? Like I. Love The match between Moxley. And, I gag cage, but I didn't agree with you. Know a lot of the things around the match. You know I didn't agree with Niche. I didn't agree with you. Know How it ended and I'm wish if. So the the work the match. Fine. The ending. Turnoff. I didn't like I didn't like the see. The butch blades standing on the on the ram the whole entire match. Taken why would you go from the match? That's supposed to be so important. And then you show two guys disbanding on Iraq. I didn't understand it. and. What little interaction they had did not warrant. That that kind of attention, and then you go out and the guys win, and they get in the car and the car won't start. We can have rehearsal. and Go and make sure that fucking car can star. Mike I mean it's. It was that I thought. Was You know not? It took away from the attention of the show. And the way that the show is supposed to flow, and you know I'm I'm not here to be quality control. You ask my opinion. That's exactly what we're doing here. We winners about a you know how you felt about things and as much as I have points deducted points. So. You know but I see your opinion and You know I I'm not this credit away from me. The show the stuff that I didn't like and. An xt. And this is this is where I feel like mark. We Really Miss sedation. I feel like this would be a great opportunity to jump out to them on a Saturday and get their thoughts. Because you're right. It does feel like a little bit of a coin. Flip I went Awa. St But when you talk specifically about the things you didn't like and how you docked. Points for that I think that's very valid because bullied. I got into it. You and bully got into it. There are very very valid concerns with some of the holes in a w specifically on Wednesday, night I don't think there's any question real. Quick back to your weekly winner with Annex. week mark next week. Has All my attention? Dominic died Jakovic taking on and cross. Let's go..

"And raw Monday night. Bad numbers he showed two point. Zero one million viewers little stock should be put into these numbers under the circumstances but third hour doing one point seven three million viewers. Least Watch our of rob programming of the modern era. The exception of our three of the December twenty third episode that includes late eighteen two thousand eighteen Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve shows the overall number beat only those two shows historically as well as the December twenty third Christmas Week taped show in Twenty Nineteen First Hour. Brawl was third in the eighteen to forty nine. Second Hour was eighth and third hour was tenth so normally even when. Raja's bad numbers are like you know very very high one-two-three in eighteen forty nine not this week thirty two percent of women. Eighteen to forty nine dropped. I Third Hour twenty-seven percent men eighteen to forty nine ten percent women twelve to thirty four twenty eight percent men at twelve thirty four and nineteen percent over fifty down twenty three percent from the same week last year as noted. Obviously some of this krona virus related. We shouldn't put too much stock into it but as I attempt to not sneeze here two point nine million I our two million second hour one point seven three third hour so I think obviously one of the problems here is show as you so long like the aws show with a bunch of wrestling matches. Did Well Ed exte- with no wrestling matches did terribly smackdown with wrestling matches and Gronk some other stuff that did well and this raw with two taped matches listeners. Cnn Rawlins and Charlotte versus Oscar did very very poorly. So maybe there's something to read into this. Maybe there was too much content. Maybe there were too many matches. Maybe didn't think they were gonna see enough live wrestling. I don't know but it didn't do well any thoughts on this. It's really hard to be critical right now. This is a very difficult time and very understanding and very sensitive to that that said it was so hard to get through that show on Monday. It was so hard if if it wasn't for the chance that I would be here at some point this week bought like right now. I probably wouldn't have slogged through it. I probably would've shot it off. It's I look. I understand that they're going to lose a TON OF MONEY ON THIS YEAR. Wrestlemainia and I understand that we're in a difficult situation with quarantines and travel and I'm very sympathetic to all of that but it also feels like people aren't really stepping up to the 'cause it doesn't really feel like anyone to use McMahon's term is grabbing that brass ring. It just feels like okay. This wrestlemainia is a write off. Let's just get through this. Save some of the good matches and some of the more important content for down the road when things get back to normal and I understand that to a degree but the other the other side is you've got a fairly captive audience right. Now if you're not keeping that captive audience and also you're not taking this opportunity to potentially recapture laps fans or create new. Fans this is going to be a little bit on you even with these extenuating circumstances. What did you think of Gronk? I mean I know but tell people on this show. Oh did you not hear my my rant on grown? I did not hear that I heard about the ramp. I didn't hear the actual rant Gronk and Mojo. Rawley are the two worst guys that your Bachelor Party. Oh man filthy was mad about that one. Why was he? He thinks? I don't know if I could say that. He thinks that they're great but he does not think that this is as big a disastrous is. Apparently you do as well. I don't know if it's a disaster. I mean certainly. It's a creative disaster. You can't tell me houses astor sure I mean. It's too early to tell as far as money drawn and everything what's going to happen. You know a he'll turn is coming with us because this is a mess. Those two guys do. We're acting like everybody on their first trip to Las Vegas over stimulated and out of control there everybody down on Fremont Street underneath the canopy with the big tall football shaped glass of booze and sugar juice they were just obnoxious for a guy who allegedly is watched wrestling since he was a fetus. Like gronk was trying to claim. He sure didn't act like He. Was everybody cutting a promo on a wrestling show. That has never watched wrestling guy. Come Out I thought this guy is GonNa be the greatest. He'll but then I remembered what we were dealing with here. And that is me where he's probably just GonNa be pushed as a big time baby face a she's going to annoy the hell out of people and some people are going to cheer him. Listen it's GRONK. In fact most of the people may cheer him. But I mean. There's there's definitely going to be an outcry. We'll see what happens. I thought my God. This is not my thing. Here's here's the thing is growing has got a charisma but he does not have pro wrestling charisma. And I don't know how many times I mean Brian. You Watch about as much sports. You're probably the only person less educated on regular sports than me. And that's saying something but I don't know how many times we've seen somebody on the sidelines of a football game or someone in baseball or whatever and they cut some impassioned promo or there's some sort of wild character and the announcer always goes. Oh they'd be a great fit for. Wwe Or wrestlemainia. Whatever it's like. No he look he could possibly get this down and learn in a year when inferior. I think a lot of people speculating that. Maybe he's going to wrestle next year in Los Angeles at Wrestlemainia and if that happens he's got his work cut out for him but as it is right now he does not have pro wrestling charisma. He's got sports jock charisma. He's the guy at the Toga Party with the half rack of Bush. Light box on his head. Dancing around thinking is the life of the Party so this is your Leno mayors issued a stay at home order starting Thursday at eleven pm. This will impact all. Wbz shows moving forward after. They've already recorded. This week will seriously be cutting wrestlemania right down to the wire so wrestlemanias taping right now and the impression that I've been given is. I believe some of the big matches have already been taped. And I'm pretty sure they're going to be all done long before this stay at home order begins. So they're gonNA have everything taped all the way up through the raw after WRESTLEMANIA and they're playing it to shut down filming on Thursday so this should not affect them unless something goes wrong but even if something goes wrong like say a main of inner comes down with something or they're feeling sick or whatever. I mean if that happens I mean there's good change the match and they're going to take the match but I mean they're taping taping taping taping. There have been very long nights taping. Every single day everything's going to be done prior to Orlando shutting down. So that's that's not going to be an issue and that's the update so there you Kudos to them on the preparation and doing that so much ahead of time. And if you're curious to what this could look like go back and watch wrestlemainia twelve with Roddy Piper and gold in their back lot brawl Go and watch remember the famous empty arena match with mankind and the Rock at the Super Bowl and was at nine thousand nine things like that. We we've kind of seen with. Wwe Does and. I wouldn't be surprised if we'RE GONNA see more along those lines for Wrestlemainia. Yeah the I mean there have been good empty arena matches. There have been bad theory matches. So I guess we'd find out you know I don't even know which ones like. There's going to be a bunch of stuff at the performance center but they're still another smackdown and there's still another raw and another smackdown to smackdown one raw left and so I wouldn't be surprised if more of these matches ended up being switched to not bone yard matches but something similar to that. I mean I think it would be. I advocated this well over a week ago. Do a bunch of these matches from empty locations interesting different places. I don't want everything in the same empty performance center. I mean it'll be it'll be it'll exist that like this is your one opportunity to do a wrestlemainia where virtually every match is on location somewhere. Hopefully it's the only one so why not take advantage of that absolutely. I think that this is the time for creativity as opposed to just. Let's get through this and get onto our other money making opportunities and make things bigger down the road. There is some opportunity here and the situation is tough but somebody needs to do something to get some attention you've got a relatively captive audience heck wrestlemainia thirty did really well for ESPN on Sundays. So there's evidence that people will watch this content if you put a little effort into it all right when you hit you break here in a moment we come back. We got a bunch of text messages and emails. Fortunately a lot of him about Chris. Benoit's.
"ed exte" Discussed on Heartland Newsfeed Radio Network
"I recall correctly where Shane McMahon told the guys on his team that if they didn't win he was gonNA fire all of them. Shane McMahon was in charge of smackdown and he was like he was demanding smackdown win they go to survivor. Series and smackdown lost every single solitary match at the time they were going to do an angle based off at but between survivor fiber series and Tuesday Nights Maktum. Anybody WanNa do the math. How many days? That was Sunday Monday Tuesday three days. It took for them to totally drop everything as a viewer I watched survivor series. I watch down lose. Every single match can something on Tuesday instead. The show starts on Tuesday and they just they just did a shell and then I'd always people go. Oh well there was something Tuesday like viewership might be down or something. I remember what it was but then people like next week on smackdown next week. They'RE GONNA THEY'RE GONNA follow up on this. Don't worry next week. Came nothing and there was never anything so they can't even get the members. There's of these elimination matches figured out. We're a week away. We have no raw women's team. We have no smackdown minced. Ed exte- men's team. Whatever we have nothing zero a week away so if you think that they could come up with some sort of idea that they're going to follow up on leading into the royal rumble or Wrestlemainia? I mean give up dude. It Ain't gonNA happen. I'm not even going to send your wrong like many times. I've said you no there's no stakes for this match. Here's an easy steak do it. They never do it so it's not that you're wrong. It's just that it's not going to happen. Why the even thinking about it or they could dig it trophy out of the archives and just a label on it? Yeah you're right one hundred percent right the planning it either is not there or they never follow through on it and even if there were stipulations what faith do we have fans. What do we have that? They're going to follow through or that. These will even be remembered or important two weeks from now. Just annoying at Star cates from back in the day. But you know it didn't even have to go back that far. You know these things. They'll be laid off three to six months in advance. He had a path. You knew where you're going and it made sense and they just do everything so slapdash and it's gotten worse and worse in worse and you look at some of the scripts that they have and that they go through these headaches that they they booked themselves into it's just see it doesn't have to be that way and that's that's the most frustrating part of the whole thing. It just doesn't have to be that way but yet it is because of the filter that it goes through. What else do we GAV? Here I find the financial facets of aid to you in new Japan Vereker expansion to be fascinating. How Much Do Gate receipts play into these? Two turning a profit is. Aws Missing out running the Great Lakes cities rather than some of the other destinations. They are targeting well aid w view. Aws Choosing where they run based on a number of factors. And all you can do is the best you can like one of their absolute best television markets. They do sky high ratings in Charlotte so they chose to run a show in Charlotte. It didn't do very well so all you can do is the best. You CAN AWA US very likely to turn a profit in the next couple of years. They a heavy talent budget. The amount of money they're getting for television is probably very close to covering that budget. They're running pay per views us four times a year that looked to be doing about one hundred thousand buys at fifty nine dollars. So we're talking. Let's see here if the show was fifty bucks. They're they're making probably twenty five dollars per show times one hundred thousand is I mean..
