Re: Fan Expo Dallas - May 3-5 2019 - Dallas, TX

With all the SOA names, could we see Katey Segal finally do shows again or at least attempt? Or is she an "absolutely not" name due to past nonsense? Taking bookings has never been her problem, she just falls into the "not reliable to actually show up" category. I think Chiller has likely blackball...

Looks like Hunnam is going to make a bit of a run of the big-money cons this year. If one of them books William Lucking and/or Kurt Sutter with him, they get my money.

Right. Just had someone I block say he/she has informants to look at my page. Really? Anyone else hear of this?
That sounds completely psychopathic.

I'm not on FB, but if I ever do get on, I'm blocking certain people on day 1, just out of principle.

Re: Undertaker is now accepting bookings

I would guess he's just not currently under WWE contract, and thus free to take convention bookings without clearing them through WWE.

If he actually does do the occasional wrestling match, it would likely still be with WWE.

Re: Starrcast 2, Las Vegas (May 23-26, 2019)

Cody Rhodes said on Twitter his charges were dismissed and expunged years ago. Who knows. Cody also does business with him. It's the classic pro wrestling "It's OK if it's somebody I make money with" double-standard. If it was somebody in the business Cody disliked, he'd likely label him an abuser,...

Re: Starrcast 2, Las Vegas (May 23-26, 2019)

I don't have a personal beef with Conrad, but he does come off kinda carny-ish sometimes. The one time I did lose a ton of respect for him was during a WHW episode soon before the first Starrcast (I believe it was the Shockmaster Clash show), where he went out of his way to put over RF for no reason...

Re: Starrcast 2, Las Vegas (May 23-26, 2019)

Other than maybe flying in old legends from Japan who never come to the US, how many legitimately "really, really surprising/intriguing" names are realistically left for a wrestling con?

Re: Wrestlemania Axxess 2019 Brooklyn

If you really need the VIP guest, then obviously the VIP is worth it. But if you want to get a ton of the free signers too, you're not going to have as much time as you'll probably need. They usually do two "shifts" every session, so the first crew might come out from, say, 6-8, then the next crew c...

Re: All Elite Wrestling Promotion Confirmed

If AOL Time Warner sold it, there wouldn't be "Ted Turner money" involved. Turner was still on the board of Time Warner for several years after the death of WCW, and was at the time their biggest stockholder, even though he no longer had operational control after the merger, so he wasn't going to du...

Re: Fan Expo Dallas - May 3-5 2019 - Dallas, TX

Sounds like she only agreed to do a super-limited amount of graphs (and likely more on a send-in, judging by the "in person" wording) So as crazy as it sounds, it's probably better to do the lottery and let people know whether or not they're getting her in advance, rather than have a crowd line up, ...

Re: All Elite Wrestling Promotion Confirmed

But fewer and fewer people were watching WITH Hogan and all the big names, so on (presumably) a smaller network, and with fewer names, what good would that name value would have done them? And don't forget that all of those names would have still had existing contracts, so either they would have bee...

Re: All Elite Wrestling Promotion Confirmed

WCW would have survived with a new TV deal, but it would have had to downgrade. Nobody was going to keep paying the huge money deals that Goldberg, Hogan, Nash, etc. were making, so the "new" WCW would have likely ended up being more like TNA - a super-indy type company that had ex-WWF castoffs and ...

My fixes more valid. In one it looks like the flash is reflecting from his glasses. In the other I simply made photoshop adjustment to make the shades look darker. This is a situation where dark shades would have been ideal. ugh! Photoshopping things that didn't exist in the original picture, in or...

I'd like to get the Borga figure just to have it. But it's just too expensive and I don't really need more stuff.

Such a shame he never did a con.
Gee, I wonder why Class would specifically want a Ludvig Borga figure?
