    WWE: We can't afford to keep all of these people on during the pandemic. Also WWE: We can't afford to give promotions or bonuses or raises. Also Also WWE: Makes record profits and signs a mountain of new talent

    Honestly the thing with Sammy and AEW/Impact was for the better, if what's being said is correct. Since they said "he was replaced by Black Taroose" (holy shit that's not even close to pronouncing "Taurus" in Spanish, should've stuck to the English pronunciation instead), they're implying he was going to help and/or be involved with Decay. He doesn't fit at all in that angle, much less the stable. He'd be much better in an X-Division storyline, but it already has two cocky heels in it (Austin and Bey).

    Blake Christian actually use to wrestle at an Indy place in Booneville Mississippi called Extreme Pro Wrestling or EPW. I’ve personally never seen him wrestle there because I only starting going a few years ago, but I have friends who have seen him and say he is awesome.

    The insanity of WWE keeps getting more insane. WHY hire more talent when you released a good chunk last year & just froze pay? If I was ONE who was released in April last year, I would be PISSED. Call back them before hiring new talent.

    WWE signs far too many talents, and most of those talents either get lost in the shuffle or simply fired within months of being in the company. They have such a huge roster, and the bigger it gets, the more talents we get in the forgotten section.

    If they are that great they catch some ones eyes and get to nxt or as enhancement talent to main roster, or to 205 live, they sign for performance center also, It may not work for few but tons of them get a chance to go big and also money for the time, it's step up for wrestlers anyways

    You guys have still not woken up and realized that NXT has nothing to do with WWE RAW & Smackdowm. Why do you think every person that goes to the main shows always get buried. Personally NXT is 1000 times better than anything WWE is putting out. As for AEW they are just wasting time and money with a crap fest show that ain't worth shit. I had to force myself to watch Impacts PPV this weekend.

    Not surprised WWE is going on a signing spree. They’ve been in need of a new influx of talent for a while and with AEW and New Japan signing up a lot of the top North American talent in this pandemic the talent pool was starting to get rather dry.

    I love how WWE can't win. They fire people and everyone is outraged because they are firing people while making tons of money. They hire people and everyone is upset that the talent won't be seen on tv. They can't win.

    @Jacob Navarro I mean that's you!!!it's a lot of others the total opposite

  51. El Neco

    El Neco9 days ago

    @Jacob Navarro It did make me appreciate the talent that's currently there in Impact, actually. Ended up liking Moose, Josh Alexander, Chris Bey, and Ace Austin quite a lot, as well as the Knockouts division. As for the relationship in itself, think this from another perspective: Impact/TNA has had a bad reputation for ages, and many have heard of the worst it had to offer (Black Reign, secret Russo, Claire Lynch, etc.) and wouldn't give it the fair shake, now what's essentially the second or third biggest promotion in the US is collaborating with them, and they even got NJPW to send talent to them again (after Okada Kato, even). If anything it raises a big spotlight on them, and if people see that they're in good terms with other promotions after all these years they'll be inclined to check it out to see what they're doing right.

  52. Jacob Navarro

    Jacob Navarro9 days ago

    I get that. For me, I never really cared about Impact. And having a few AEW guys show up over there just isn't enough for me to want to start a new show. If I did, it would only be to watch the AEW snippets.

    If the spot was replaced by Black Taurus it was supposed to be a tag team with Crazy Steve and Rosemary aka Decay. I’m guessing it just wasn’t a fit which checks out honestly.

    Signing 24 guys is exactly what WWE did NOT need. How about keeping those from the mass firing of talent that would have not cost them any money. I feel so horrible for these wrestlers... WWE literally goes "Daddy can I have new toys? I'm bored of these." Please bring back the Dsmon King! I wouldn't blame Sammy G if he came in to work anyway. NXT stars absolutely deserve a raise especially compared to the main roster bullshit!

    Dominic Webb10 days ago

    I think we pretend too much that these wrestlers aren't individuals making their own choices. Who are any of us to frame their decision as a negative and act as if they didn't choose to do so themselves. And just imagine how those wrestlers feel when a parade of smarks all come down on them with this negativity, just because they didn't sign with who the smarks want. When the wrestlers may (god forbid) actually be happy about signing and taking a big step in their career. Also while I understand that WWE are an evil corporation, and petty as can be, but to think its a reactionary move to the NJPW/Impact thing solely or mostly is ridiculous. Too write up, negotiate, and sign 24 different people with 24 different contracts in a couple weeks is not realistic. These things have been in the works for at least a little while, saying its a reaction to AEW is a wrestling bubble response. No hate at all just my opinion I feel like fans get way to caught up in this "tribal war mentality."
