The lawyer wasn't bullshitting when he said he didn't have a lot of time left to live.

Re: The 2017 Pro Wrestling Thread.

It got mentioned on their Facebook page. That's how I learned about the news. I imagine it's going to be mentioned somehow on RAW but I doubt he'll have a video tribute like other Legends had.

The really bad thing about this is that we'll never know what really happened. He may have been telling the truth. It is odd, though, that they couldn't put this together decades sooner. It's hard to solve a case after 33 years.

He may have done it, or he may not have. We'll never have all the facts.

Re: The 2017 Pro Wrestling Thread.

Hopefully he shows up at Rumble but it seems that it's only a Legends contract for the moment. One of the crazier things though is that Angle spent more time on TNA (10 years) than at WWF/E (7 years)

Hearing the music again and the YOU SUCK chant at the Rumble would be insane

Re: The 2017 Pro Wrestling Thread.

Now that Jericho, a Canadian, is US Champ, Angle needs to challenge him to a title match at the Rumble. Oh it's true, IT'S DAMN TRUE.

Not only that, I guess Brock's punishment is over since he's back to monster mode after his quick one night stint as a jobber.

Re: The 2017 Pro Wrestling Thread.

None of the shit I've seen tonight makes sense. Wrestlemania is almost in my back yard this year (Orlando) and I still haven't looked for tickets or packages as I'm not sold on it except for the aspect of attending a Mania. That opening segment was a whole hodge podge of nonsense . Maybe I should go back to reading on Monday nights. Definitely better for the brain I would think.

Re: The 2017 Pro Wrestling Thread.

Also, what's the deal with Sasha Banks? Every time they give her the belt she winds up hurting herself and having to go back on the shelf. Are they doing this stupid stuff with Nia to build up a rather far fetched revenge angle, or to make the amount of time Sasha has to stay out sound logical?

Re: The 2017 Pro Wrestling Thread.

The UK guys look to be better and more interesting crusierweights than the ones we are seeing on the 201 show.

The problem with Nia is the same problem WWE faces every time they have a monster female wrestler. They don't know what to do with her. WWE didn't know what to do with Chyna when she started to participate in the female wrestlers division. Same with Beth Phoenix, Nicole Bass and Aja Kong. Which by the way, I feel that WWE may benefit of bringing Kong back to the company

These in ring segments are just brutal.

Re: The 2017 Pro Wrestling Thread.

Why was Nia Jax in her ring gear when Banks wasn't? And why were the refs wearing ref shirts for a workout?

If Angle comes back, hopefully it's in a managerial role with American Alpha. Bringing back Haas and Benjamin couldn't hurt either, maybe as foils and part of "team Rusev"

I haven't watched a Kurt Angle wrestling match since he left WWE, can he still go?

Benjamin was supposed to come back right after the brand split, but he tore his rotator cuff and had to have surgery. His surgery was in late November and the prognosis was 4-6 months. So he likely won't be back until right before WrestleMania at the earliest.

Speaking of injuries, have there been any Finn Balor updates?

Jericho and Owens ruin Raw for me. I wish WWE would go in another direction instead of these two guys getting all the air time.
