It's called contractual liquidated damages for breach of contract.

It would've almost certainly cost USA more to breach the contract than what USA would've received (net) in ad revenues from airing wrestling, no matter the differences in ratings, demos, or ad revenues. Not because of a lack of "quality" viewers, but because, even back then, almost every TV broadcast agreement for a broadcast like that, is made at least a year in advance, and the minimum damages specified for breach of the agreement for failure to broadcast on the date and time specified, are drastically severe by design.

That's because without the guaranteed time slot, there will be a lack of pre-paying sponsors to pay for the needed early or advance costs of production or pre-production that the broadcaster doesn't cover. That's not even getting into the minimum amount of liquidated damages for the reasonable anticipatory profits for the show's producer, which in addition to the broadcast rights fees, also often includes an anticipated minimum amount of profit for the producer for an increase in the amount and $ value of potential live tix sales, merch, % of food/beverage venue or vendor sales, etc.
Citation needed.

Those would be quite difficult in television, because TV schedules are constantly changing, and broadcasters would retain the right to preempt for special events—sporting, news, emergency, etc. Also, the WWF would likely angle for one too. And why would these no longer be commonplace? Why would producers cede power to networks’ scheduling when there is precedent to suggest they don’t have to?

And like with WCW getting canceled, if there was more money in the wrestling, they’d have gone with it, which you admit. Arguing that the dog show people are a juggernaut is not exactly a great counterpoint to “wrestling has never been that powerful.” You’re essentially saying “You’re right. The dog people had bigger dicks,” which is the point.

Remember when you tried to slip past people that an increase of 0.10 in the key demo would lead to an exponential increase in rights fees? This would value Monday Night Raw at $540 million a year. Man, USA must sure be grumpy about that deal.

The new head of TNT/TBS/TruTV/HBOMax is Casey Bloys.

Bloys greenlit BALLERS and went to high school w/ Dwayne Johnson, though they didn't know each other then. I think this is good news for AEW.

This is...interesting. Rock has been pretty ďGo everyone!Ē when it comes to wrestling. That being said, Iíve got the sneaking suspicion that Rock will one day start up his own company or back another one. Itíll be interesting to see if anything comes of this relationship. Itís probably entirely inconsequential.

Yeah same here. Watching Wimbledon during the summer was something I used to look forward to as a kid/teen. It just sucked that Canada wasn't exactly a tennis power back then. Greg Rusedski looked like the guy but he up and became British.

Jericho has done a lot of good things in terms of providing financial assistance to wrestlers in need, not to mention everything he did for Tazz Dan in his final months.

But unfortunately he’s been exposed as an asshole this year.

First he had Trump Jr on his pod which, whatever, I can buy Jericho being one of those guys who is politically naive and not realizing that giving someone like that a platform at all is potentially damaging, no matter if you’re trying to be “fair” to everyone.

But then he was caught liking All Lives Matter tweets when the protests started, and supposedly someone in AEW gave him a talking to.

And now he’s out with Fozzy doing live concerts with crowds that have no masks or social distancing.....and he seems to be defensive on Twitter when people call him out of it. Not good.

I'm not a memorbilia/collector type but for those that are it sounds like Brandi Rhodes is the hardest to get action figure at Walmarts so far because they made more of the guys than her.

I get the feeling Jericho is one of those people who goes into “fuck it” mode when drunk and does stupid things. And he gets drunk a lot.

i don't think he realizes what all lives matter means in context. his decision to do a concert in the middle of pandemic is deplorable.

I like Sammy Gueverra a lot, but gimmicked chair or no gimmicked chair, the way he threw that chair at Matt Hardy's head was super reckless. He fast balled that thing. What's the gimmicked chair suppose to look like? I'm assuming it's not suppose to fold up and Matt takes the bump on the seat of the chair, but the chair Sammy threw, didnt fold. It just hit Matt with the top of the back of the chair.

So brutal. I'm stunned he threw it like that.

100% Matt Hardy's fault. If he didn't want to work with Indyriffics he wouldn't have been in that position.

Broken Matt lasted like 3 weeks anyways, he should have just stayed with WWE.

Supposedly he panicked and rushed that spot. Him throwing a chair at Hardy was meant to happen but Hardy was also supposed to have enough time to brace and protect himself.

The chair he was meant to throw was one of those regular black fold up steel chairs that are lighter and folds up easier.

The chair he threw instead was heavier and more sturdier which is why it didn't fold even after it nailed Hardy right on the head. Him chucking it as hard as he did just made that whole botched spot worse for Hardy.

I still dont get how that chair shot would work even with a lighter chair. Not the way Sammy launched that thing.

Also i dont know if it was the same show, but during the Allin vs Moxley match. Darby bounces off the ropes and does a coffin ( throw )... Throws himself backwards in Moxley and the back of his head collides with Dean's face and you could hear how vicious this sounded lol.

Normally, the chair would have been thrown as flat as possible with the pointy ends away from his face or body. Hardy would have then used his hands or arms to absorb the blow for protection instead of taking it unprotected.

Problem was Sammy screwed up everything on his side of the spot. He didn't bother to properly set the chair even if it was heavier nor paid attention to see if Hardy was ready or not for it.

After the first or second Dynamite, I read people saying "wow Jericho looks great."

I'm still not sure which show they were actually watching.

I think Jericho is going to end up chipping away at his legacy. He has looked awful (only 3 years older than Edge for context), out of shape and like a cheap version of his former self.

Now he is making stupid decisions outside of wrestling and comes off looking reckless and careless.

He was always so polished and had such a great image inside WWE. It’s strange seeing him look so cheap and feckless now in spite of his obvious talent

I do love a bit of gorm too, but doesn’t apply here unfortunately!

Feckless is a lack of character or being irresponsible.

Gormless is lacking intelligence.

Gorm is def better though and has history on the forum. Missed opportunity!!

"feckless" and "gormless" have been used interchangeably for longer than we've been around. They both describe a lack of aptitude in an individual.

They are essentially synonymous.

I feel thatís the functional excuse. His body is getting away from him, so he comes up with an idea to make it sound intentional. And because Jericho is great, no one asks any questions.

I hope he doesnít become another tragedy. His legacy? Eh. I thought the list stuff sucked. I havenít enjoyed Jericho on a consistent basis for quite a long time now. I think he thinks heís bulletproof and heís going to find out heís wrong.

They are not synonymous and you’re wrong. I was just messing about, but your response was salty. My teachers accept your apology.

Always do the leg work mate.
Look up their etymology.

Look at the synonym lists for both, read full descriptions from multiple sources.

A lack of attention, initiative and ability is key to both definitions and over the years they have been used so interchangeably that they are tied together.

Gormless began roughly as "without attention/heed" and feckless began as "ineffective" basically.

So yeah, pretty much the same shit different day.
