Wrestling The wrestling thread of empty seats

Do you see her hashtag at the bottom and how confused she is? lol

 

@Jose is correct. The New World Order (the non-wrestling one) is a far-right conspiracy. The hashtag isn't political. Look at the first reply to this comment. "Previous POTUS" (Obama). Global elites (globalists). This person is a far-right loon, and if you go to her profile, she's clearly a far-right religious nutjob.

Yet saving small businesses is not a far-right standing point. The fact that she's in a Walmart speaks to how confused she is =)

It's also not a liberal talking point. But the nWo is definitely a far right talking point.

I just finished the Owen Hart 'Dark Side...' episode, and it was.... okay. It definitely deserved the two-part episode respect that Benoit received, and (speaking on the whole of this season) there were a lot of omissions, a lot of villain posturing, and a lot of skipped over info that kinda skews this unfairly. It's definitely great to see the home videos of Owen, some of the little details from Martha about how she got the news of his death, how the funeral went down, and the evidence of his fall that she was gathering together (seeing her hold the actual clip was really powerful). But it unfairly paints a picture of Big Bad Vince being cold and uncaring throughout it all. I get this is Martha's story to tell, but not even having Bret there to talk, or Jarrett, or an actual wrestler that Dark Side hadn't used in other episodes this season already was really odd.  And then the narrative was going a little too deep into the 'Owen was the greatest wrestler at the time' outline without talking about the backstage politics of the day. Owen wasn't only buried because of lousy creative, he was also buried because the largest star on the roster - Austin - didn't want to work with him ever again. So not bringing that up was unfair, imo. And then knowing from the... A&E(?) Owen biography from 2000 (where they used footage that was recorded during Bret's Wrestling with Shadows' doc) that showed how Martha was always against Owen being a wrestler, even from before they were married, was a shame. Bret had said (then) that Martha just never liked the business and wouldn't encourage Owen in a positive way with anything having to do with it - even back when Owen worked for his dad in Calgary Stampede.

 

So yea, this was okay, and it's main point of existence should be solely to see where Martha and her kids ended up. And I do appreciate that she won't ever let Owen be in the HoF, but maybe the documentor's could have brought up how Owen being in the HoF would be great for his friends who are still involved with wrestling, or even bringing up a notion to her that maybe Owen can go in once Vince is out of the picture? I still think Mark Henry's Owen moment at the HoF was about wanting to see his friend being celebrated by the world more than it was a business tactic, and maybe if Martha could see that there are friends and fans out there who do respect the HoF that then she could allow them to celebrate Owen for the important figure he was in a business that they/we all enjoy.

Sure, Vince is bad. But there are certain things said that are kinda irresponsible. Saying that going on with the show was some horrendous decision he made was unfair. Plenty of people have said that no one could have made the right call at that moment at that time, and it was up to Vince to make it.

 

I'm not defending Vince and anything he did/does with his wrestlers. But this episode definitely takes its liberties painting him to be some villainous tyrant without giving him an inch for being between a rock and a hard place.

 

And those screen shots of Dunne are a little out of context. Watch the episode and realize all the calamity that was going on and kinda what everyone was trying to do on the fly. JR was just remembering being at the desk and how no one knew what was going on while he needed to keep the commentary going. (Also, Dunne is a piece of shit)

The Stampede was extraordinary. In a week filled with wrestling tragedy - Shad Gaspard drowning while saving his son, wrestling writer Larry Csonka's death, and the bullying and suicide of Hana Kimura, it was nice to end the week on somewhat of a feel-good note; just to make you get away for a little bit.

 

Also, this Saturday marked 21 years since Owen's death. The Dark Side of the Ring finale featuring his death aired this past week as well. It's a recommended watch as are most of DSotR episodes.

Watching Double or Nothing right now... It's such a spot-fest show with its wins/losses being very reminiscent of TNA burying their home grown talent for Vince's leftovers =/ AEW really needs a solid booker that isn't just going to be a yes-man for lame ideas
