so, the art form guys. Fuck those fans. Not big on 'inappropriate' behavior I guess, but jesus fucking christ it's a wrestling show. There's a reason nobody gives a shit about wrestling anymore and it's because of these smelly neckbeards who think wrestling is a Monet painting.

Host of the segments Sarah Scheiber took to social media to give why they did not do the segments this week.

"There is no 'script' what so ever, other than just knowing the names. When we don't do the contests, it's [because] I get too busy backstage doing interviews or there's just other things happening during the commercial breaks."

"On a very legitimate level, those who have been watching the videos about our history, it's very legitimate in the fact that he did not want me to be here to the point where he would tell people who made decisions that I shouldn't be in the position that I was at," stated Kofi. "A lot of people asked me over the years, 'What happened in 2009? You put Randy Orton through the table at Madison Square Garden. I thought you were going to be going up here.' That's where I was supposed to go. You come to find out that because of him, it didn't go that way, not right away. It took a little awhile. Ups and downs. And now here we are 11 years later, through a stroke of luck, a touch of fate, hard work, and taking advantage of some opportunities."

  • one source told me the MSG show had sold much less than 1,000 tickets as of mid-July.
  • No matches have been announced for either show.
  • AAA had been posting canned Tweets regularly (and probably automatically) to hype these shows. Those have vanished.
  • AAA hasn’t tweeted the word “MSG” since June 26th.
  • AAA hasn’t used the #LUCHALIBREAAAenNY tag since June 18th
  • AAA hasn’t used the #LUCHALIBREAAAenLA tag since June 29th
  • AAA has continued to push their Mexico shows as normal; they’re not giving on social media ticket sales, just these shows.
  • Neither the Spanish nor the English announce crew mentioned the AAA US shows on TripleMania commentary when it would normally be a focal point
  • This week’s Wrestling Observer Newsletters says the announcers were specifically told not to bring up the US shows.
  • Fite.TV were announced as carrying these shows on PPV. They currently list no show airing on September 15th.
  • An AAA show was announced for September 16th outside Mexico City, the day after the scheduled show in New York. It’s possible for everyone to make it back from New York to be on this show, but it would be challenging.
  • I’ve been waving “AAA’s shows look concerning” red flags. AAA’s usually helpful in telling me when I’m way off base. No one’s gotten back to me to say I’m wrong.

None of this is definite proof the shows are canceled. The tickets for New York and Los Angeles remain on-sale as of late Thursday and there were still ads playing for it in the Forum last night. The evidence showing they’re not running theses is getting overwhelming though. We’re waiting for someone on the AAA show to be announced as working somewhere else on September 15 or for AAA to say something. That may still take a while. The social media mentions being dropped in June suggest someone knew to stop pushing it a while ago and yet nothing’s been said. You shouldn’t wait for them to finally change say it to make other plans.

That's very surprising that they aren't doing well in LA considering the demographic.

One thing to remember though is that generally Lucha shows have a substantially higher walk up attendance than American shows. Mexican fans typically don't buy tickets in advance.

From what I've read elsewhere, that might not happen for the LA show in terms of sizable walk up sales.

Something about the difference in mentality between US-based Mexican lucha fans and local lucha fans for AAA shows and their traveling habits. Same for AAA likely won't have a large fly in happen from Mexico for their LA show.

NJPW learned the hard way how very different US wrestling fans are when it comes to advertising shows and the lack of walk up sales.

Even WWE and indies quickly realized that US wrestling fans are very picky when it comes to traveling to big events since the early numbers for SummerSlam weekend's fly-in fans was lower than both were expecting. WWE and the indies wanted SummerSlam in Toronto to reach Mania-level in outside fan support which is why a ton of events and festivities are taking place this weekend in the city.

Times have certainly changed.

I remember Ron Skolar running Lucha shows in LA in the early 90s and almost cancelling the shows because nobody was buying tickets in advance. They ended up drawing over 15,000.

I think people who automatically assume that wrestling is cool again because the niche of the niche are supporting AEW really need to reflect on some of those metrics. And it's why it's so important that AEW don't piss away this golden opportunity to try and bring some people back in.

These same people also think wrestling is about to be 'huge again' bc of FOX airing SD....on Friday night, a night known for people not watching TV, especially those over the age of 10 and under the age of 60.

Since Paul Heyman got more influence, hour three actually beat hour two in three of the previous four weeks. The show also reverted back to the usual summer pattern of hour two being the highest, which had not been the case for much of this summer but was historically the case ...

Last year's Raw after SummerSlam averaged 3.09 million viewers, so it was an 11.7 percent year-to-year drop ...

The three hours for Raw were:

8 p.m. 2.77 million viewers
9 p.m. 2.82 million viewers
10 p.m. 2.60 million viewers

Shibata ran in and everyone flew with every blow he did but the number got to him and KENTA gave him a PK, the move he popularized and choked him out and then sat on him and mocked him. The pop when he started on offense was unreal and the heat when KENTA laid him out was as well.

When you saw the angle you for sure would figure it's building KENTA vs. Shibata, which should be a super hot program, and that makes all the sense in the world. I guess we'll know tonight or tomorrow when the new cards are announced if there's any follow-up. Shibata has always wanted to return but doctors have said in the past that there is no way he'd be cleared. Still, he did a lot more than you'd think, and medical diagnosis can change over time. But we were told this morning shortly after the show that the word was Shibata was not cleared for a match. Edge was told he would never be allowed to do anything physically in the ring but was cleared to do that spear spot last night, so never in pro wresting is a funny term.

Fast forward to a year later; pancake power is a real thing. People are clamoring for pancakes. It doesn't make sense, but we give the people want they want. And right now, they want pancakes."

Miz & Mrs, which followed SmackDown on USA, averaged 1.009 million viewers. That was down five percent from last week but still the second highest total of the current run of episodes.

"The term 'casual fan,' honestly, I throw up in my mouth every time I hear it. It's this vernacular to describe wrestling based on the Monday Night Wars," stated Cody. "They are over and aren't happening in the present. What's happening in the present is, we can't determine what it is. Only history will be able to tell us. My focus is the base that built AEW. That base, if you've seen it, you get it. If you haven't seen it, you have to see and feel. There's a lot of confidence that can be misplaced for arrogance. But I've seen the power and I want to focus on them. There are people who are plenty critical of what AEW does. Instead of signal boosting that, I'd rather [have] 100 fans in our base than the one salty son of a bitch who isn't coming aboard anyway. The first way to fail is to try and please everybody."

If you continue on with this and defame Chyna or tarnish her legacy in any way, you are really opening yourself up to defamation. Not to mention personal and emotional duress on the part of myself and her family because of what you are doing.

You need to be VERY clear that as her mother and her sole beneficiary, I am going to vigorously defend my daughter and her estate, protect her legacy from vultures like you who want to drag it through the mud, and do whatever I can to stop you and those like you from making a buck off of her tragedy both now and in the future."

More specifically, this event is Boogie Jam 1984 and the upload features an epic hour long match between Ricky Steamboat and Ric Flair.

Clocking in at over two and a half hours, it is possible the full 7 match card ends up being added to the archives but taking into account the Ric Flair match going so long, it is also very possible something ends up not making the final cut. Regardless, the event also featured another championship match, a Hair vs. Mask match, along with a plethora of legends from the territory days including the iconic Dory Funk Jr. battling Tully Blanchard.

Ganger suffered injuries after being hit with shrapnel, which he has yet to undergo surgery to remove.

After the reboot of the WWE Netwotk, this content was available via search or in different sections, but now it is housed under one umbrella again. However, It is no longer listed by year.

WWE quietly announced the cancellation of five house shows in August, all on the Raw side. This coincides with the report we had last week of doing more dual branded “Supershows” going forward. The shows canceled are the entire Raw house show tour in two weeks, with shows on 8/23 in Bossier City, LA, 8/24 in Lafayette, LA and 8/25 in Mobile, AL, as well as two of the three shows the following week, on 8/30 in Bangor, ME and 8/31 in Portland, ME. What’s notable is that out of nowhere, Kane was booked to work the Bossier City and Lafayette house shows.

In the case of the first weekend, this is simply canceling shows likely due to bad advances. Even with the high ticket prices, it’s no longer the case that almost all house shows are profitable ...

There are two keys to the cancellations. The first is to save money as obviously the company saw that they would be money losing tours. The second is to kind of hide the house show decline to investors. As noted with the last quarter, the average attendance (and this includes TV tapings and PPV shows) fell from 5,000 to 4,700 in North America. It’s a drop, but not an alarming drop. It’s six percent, notable but nothing to panic over. But the key is that they ran eight less shows due to Monday cancellations for the most part.

If you figure those shows would have averaged 2,000 paid, that would take the average down to 4,100, which now is an 18 percent drop that investors would start questioning. It’s the right move for the company, as last quarter the house shows were profitable which hasn’t been the case every quarter. But it was also the WrestleMania quarter so Mania and Mania week live event profits are going to make the quarter better than other quarters.

There will be no AEW talent on that show. About 2,000 tickets have been sold thus far for MSG and the only match we know of it Tessa Blanchard vs. Taya for the Reina de Reinas title. On the weekend television, once again, the announcers never once mentioned anything about either show. No card has been announced and one would think you’d want the MSG card out by now.

A big issue with the complete card is the visa issue. It’s been hard for Japan, but because of Donald's presidency, it’s ten times worse for those from Mexico. We were told that visas used to take maybe a month, but there are some visas that have taken eight months and they still haven’t been approved. With the show one month off, that’s made things very difficult. Plus, regarding the television production team they would be bringing, so many of them also don’t have visas so that gets in the way of other people familiar with how they shoot big shows. They weren’t promoting the shows on social media for a few weeks but then this past week did start promoting the idea that there are shows with no hints as to what is on those shows

OWE on 8/7 and 8/10 drew about 150 fans each show, Smash vs. Progress that same day did about 225 and wXw with Walter vs Daisuke Sekimoto, which was said to be a blow away match, did about 225. The biggest of the indies was the 8/10 show called The Summit, featuring women from Shimmer, Rise, Femmes Fatales (a Quebec women’s group) and Smash. That show did 353 with 343 paid. Smash on 8/10 did about 250 fans. IWS from Quebec did about 160.

"According to a source in WWE that I spoke with this past Monday was supposed to be Dolph Ziggler’s last day with the company. I was told that there was a 'handshake deal' in place between Vince McMahon and Dolph Ziggler, and that Vince would let Dolph out of the deal following SummerSlam so that Ziggler could pursue his 'other projects.' On Monday prior to RAW, Dolph approached Vince McMahon to thank him, however it was then that Vince told Dolph that he could not let him out of his deal, and that he would 'rather just pay him to stay home.'”

Meltzer and Garrett Gonzales went into further detail about what this would mean for future NXT television tapings. Meltzer mentioned that the plan is for the show to be two hours, airing head-to-head with AEW’s television series on TNT on Wednesdays every week. The premiere date for NXT on USA could also come before October 2, which is when AEW debuts on TNT.

Meltzer noted that there would be a live component to NXT on USA, though whether it would be live every week or every other week have both been discussed.

Later in the show, when jokingly being brought up about coming out of retirement, Edge states that he definitely feels like he could have a match tomorrow, but probably would be blown up cardio wise. However, he doesn't believe WWE would allow it.

Although, he does follow that up by saying he talked to a doctor who said that he thinks his neck could be "relatively healthy" within the next five years. Edge also mentions he is also looking into stem cell therapy. But he makes it clear all this progress is due to life without bumps. Edge says doing an occasional bump is not a problem but constant physicality would not be good.

It is unclear how many episodes we will be getting, but if patterns hold true, it will be at least 20 episodes.
