    This is a far more succinct explanation of what I was getting at. Context is key, and within a wrestling context they would almost certainly have a case for an IP claim. This. WWE are a very protective, highly litigious organisation especially when it comes to IP. I don't believe even Taker would get a pass, especially for use on a competitor show, nor do I think he'd request one beyond use of the name for convention appearances. But I'm sure if Taker went to Vince and said "look, these guys want to pay me 25k to sign autographs, I won't be on the show", I'm sure Vince would have no issue. Given how crazy he is he'd probably applaud Undertaker for rinsing them for that amount of money for a few hours easy work.

    Because the gong, or something similar in relation to The Undertaker will be part of the IP owned by WWE. Anything that would mislead the fans into thinking a major WWE-owned iconic character (it's possible he may own the name, but you can bet WWE own everything else) would be appearing on a competitor's show, on PPV would be a slam dunk for legal ninja Jerry McDevitt.

    Is David Platt massively underrated as a footballer?

    I loved a bit of David Platt when I was a kid, remember seeing him on Football Italia and thinking he was great. So as an Arsenal fan I was bloody delighted when we signed him, and he was excellent for us in the early days of the Wenger reign. Really underrated.

    New Wildhearts - "Dislocated". Enjoying this, very riffy, if not a minute or too longer than needed, but still very good!

    The Celebrity Sexual Harassment and Rapists Thread

    Fair enough. There's probably a wider debate to be had about audience entitlement, but I take you point that heckling is dumb, and it's not the artist in the wrong there . Normally I'd probably agree, but I have an ingrained dislike of Ryan Adams, so this situation tickled me.

    The Celebrity Sexual Harassment and Rapists Thread

    Is it? It was clearly a bit of light hearted banter from an idiot in the crowd and he flounced off stage like a right diva.

    The Celebrity Sexual Harassment and Rapists Thread

    Absolutely, seems like a right bellend, so I'm not mega surprised. His twattery did lead to that great story of him storming off stage one night because some guy kept shouting for "Summer of '69".

    Probably because you used the phrase "political correctness gone mad" not so long ago, which is normally code for "massive bigot". Not saying that's the case for you, but that is one connotation attached to that phrase.

    Ah cheers, missed that entirely. Well we'll see in which case, but if Okada is a the challenger then I definitely see a title change. If it's Ibushi, given his freelancer status, who knows!

    If he ends up facing Okada in MSG (which is still a big "if", given they persuaded Ibushi to hang about and enter the New Japan Cup), I can see White dropping the belt there. I feel like New Japan are going to want something historic on that show and an IWGP Heavyweight title change in the most prestigious venue they could run over Mania weekend/arguably in the US, would be huge news.
  12. Fuck, I'd not spotted that. Have been ploughing through old Chikara on Amazon and they are a real highlight, great news!

    Movie Fighting with my family full trailer out feb

    Sorry to bump an old thread, but seemed more appropriate than adding to a megathread. I went to the press screening of Fighting with my Family on Thursday night, and I must say it was actually very good! I don't often post my reviews on here (because they are rarely relevant and I worry they're not very good!) but it's here if you do feel like having a read.

    RIP Albert Finney

    Very sad news. Saturday Night Sunday Morning is one of my favourite films and he's absolutely cracking in that. RIP
