    Rumors are Vince got in an argument with Saudi Officials. This is fairly scary.
    This fiasco allowed them to somehow make a good episode of SmackDown. Haha!

    I saw Daniel Bryan vs. Adam Cole and for the first time in forever said, "Okay I have to turn on Smackdown for a bit."

    The following is cut and paste from reddit, which reported what Dave said in the latest Observer

    Dave says WWE had not been paid for the previous Saudi show, as of September 30th. WWE then reported hours being Crown Jewel that they got an unspecified 60 million dollar payment.


    Dave calls it a really bad situation and doesn't know what WWE is going to do going forward. He had talent tell him they were never going back to Saudi Arabia, and others saying they couldn't wait TO LEAVE THE COMPANY.


    Dave continually reiterates the two major points: WWE wasn't paid for the previous Saudi show as of September 30th & they got a mysterious 60 million dollar payment a couple hours before Crown Jewel


    Dave confirms that Crown Jewel was supposed to air live in Saudi Arabia but instead it ending up airing there on a 40 minute delay. Basically sounds like Vince pulled the plug until he and the Saudis came to an agreement, which they did mid-show


    None of the talent was harmed but there was talent there that felt like they were hostages, even though they were allowed to leave


    Dave just keeps saying over and over that it's a really bad, really tense situation. He says the talent needs to unionize, but then points out that Smackdown is a great example of a WWE response if that were to happen: they'd just call up NXT and have a hot show


    Bryan tries to suggest Vince left before he knew all the problems talent would face. Dave says we don't know that. He'd like to believe that, but he just knows a lot of people were mad. One person there told Dave they felt like they were pawns in a dick waving contest


    Dave says Lesnar and Heyman were not originally scheduled to be on last Friday's Smackdown but they added them because of the rest of the talent being delayed. Says Brock/Heyman jumping to Raw was going to happen next Tuesday as a big kickoff for the new FS1 news show

    Dave Meltzer? Can't say I 100% believe that series of events based purely on who it is.

    Also not to mention if any shred of it was true I highly doubt Vince McMahon would even bother with the show or be able to leave as easily as he did. No money, no shows.

    They should just let the contract lapse or just make willing legends go, because that's all they want anyways.

    The most I can believe is a growing culture of discomfort in pulling these things off in such a place, perhaps to the point of wanting to leave the company and letting everyone within earshot know it.

    All I know is the more I read into twitter posts by superstars and family, the more it looks like they were held hostage so the Saudi government could make a point.

    It was a fun night tonight aside from the accident on the interstate, the shitty traffic, the construction AND the fucking detour on the way home thanks to more construction.

    Which is terrifying. The fact Vince split the first sign of trouble is what has made people lose respect for him. Brock too. Pussies!!! The Saudi government is nothing to fuck with and Vince doing a deal with them is absurd. I suppose he thinks his dickhead buddy is president so he can strong-arm the Saudis for Cash.....wrong!!!!

    If I was a wrestler for Vince and he bailed on me we would be done....

    I looked at the NJPW Network. Anyone here have it? What’s it cost? I might wanna explore during the holidays.

    Yup. I love this company, but they over book the shows, so each match is given like 6 minutes. Such a shame.

    Agreed, The Wretched is freaking awesome. Took a couple solid bumps there. Yes, it was short, but solid. Good to see you back in the ring.

    That Nyla Rose AEW tag team match (Dark Episode 6) is quality.

    I saw it live and it was basically a handicap match.

    Speaking about AEW I bought the All Out and Double Or Nothing posters off AEWShop. They were on sale ($5.00 off each to make them $19.99) but between rip off shipping ($12.99!) and taxes any deal that could've been good was basically gone.



    So those are coming. Gonna put them up on the wall with some nice frames.

    Anyone watching Full Gear tonight?

    As I see it, not basically, it was one. The only reason the Librarian was there was [as the story goes] because AEW management wouldn't let her do it as a true 2 on 1.

    LOL Shawn Spears. Not being Tye Dillinger in WWE does not make him believably any better to me.

    Might be a fitting end to wrap up this misfortune too.





    The refs in AEW suck. Jericho should've gotten DQ'd several times in the match.

    Yeah, the refs might be my main gripe. They're made out to be total idiots. At least we're not really getting screwed out of finishes like how WWE relies on it.

    I think Aubrey Edwards may be the only one I like. I still find it amusing the way she reacts to EVERY slam that happens, but she's usually pretty good about keeping up on things.

    I'll chime in! That spike you took looked like it hurt! How are those moves done to ensure safety?
