But if none of those are translating into money then its a bit of a moot point. How many people who watch the odd clip on youtube/twitter will go to house shows/tv tapings, spend on merchandise and watch routinely? Surely its relatively small numbers. 

They don't make big money because people are attending house shows anymore than they always have. They make money because they bring a different audience to USA through live content every week and they have a massive social reach that is attractive to TV companies and advertisers. 

Their traditional measures are down across the board and they are more profitable than ever. They know the value these days of their data.

I would imagine that to be very true. 

They will be ok then, none of them can get any heat. 

Ospreay is very precious about passing things down with a blessing though, whether it be a trademark move or the cost of his mums car.

Mr Wrestling II Johnny Walker has passed away. Was a huge star in Georgia. Jimmy Carter connection is an interesting one too.

To everybody else: I googled it, it's nothing exciting.

(Carter invited him to his inauguration but the Secret Service insisted he go without his mask so he didn't go. The end)

Holding my hands up, that's fair.

I took a break from arguing with a work colleague who claimed "The black people are going a bit overboard still protesting" to visit the UKFF and that miserable retort was my contribution. Sorry lads.

 

I have watched a fair bit of 1984 Mid-South this year and at that stage Mr Wrestling II was in his fifties, after a couple of previous retirements and he was the top heel involved in an excellent slow-burning feud with Magnum TA back then.

R.I.P.

Looks like they've bolted at the ratings again. You'll probably get a lot of moaning about Heyman's demotion but Raw's been a trainwreck for a while now, while Smackdown's actually been solid and been easy to follow by their standards. They'll probably both go to piss now they're stretched.

Smackdown is so inconsequential, I don't know when I last bothered to read the results. Not even been a post about last week's on here and not for the first time.

God help them if that's the better show.

Can't blame them for trying something. They've got nothing to lose because they're at rock bottom ratings wise. Haven't followed Raw much lately, even on YouTube, but the few posts on here suggest it's not good.

Thought they had a little run after new year where the shows were good and you could see a direction and a concerted effort to elevate certain people. That all went to shit before Mania. I've never had any idea how much control Heyman has had so been hard to praise him for the good bits or slate him for the bad. The really poor empty arena stuff had disappointed though. I'm certain 90s Heyman would have had all sorts of ideas on how to mask some of the short comings, divert and distract. As it is, the only things they've done, they nicked off AEW, and they felt like company directions across the board.

It won’t matter much at the moment because non-fan WWE shows are death regardless. But in the long-run, once fans return, it seems crazy that they’re giving control to the man who was consistently creating the most boring, lifeless, skippable show in years.

Does anyone know how long Heyman's contract is? I ask in case he decides he wants to write for a rival promotion, should they want him of course

I really can't imagine him bringing anything positive to AEW at this point, they've already been having consistantly better shows than what he's been writing. Fuck, I'd take this last year of AEW TV over the entirety of ECW.

The last thing WWE writing needs is more streamlining.
