Even WWE themselves, who never fire anybody, fired this salty dweeb’s ass.

He’s not necessary. We’re not talking about a Steve Austin or Shawn Michaels here. He’d be a “solid hand” at best, and it looks pretty hypocritical to bring in an alt-right douchebag. Especially if you are going to try and appeal to advertisers.
It would be pretty hypocritical for AEW to exclude TJP simply for being anti-feminist. If your company is really inclusive, that means being willing to accept people of all beliefs, would it not?

That being said, as a performer TJP is (in my view) not a "must get." I don't have anything against him, but I don't think he should be a priority. I'm liking seeing new faces, like Super Smash Bros. and this Allin guy.

That could be a great heel gimmick ... announce them for every show then explain that they couldn’t make it due to visa problems so you don’t see the Bucks (or whoever) get to wrestle that night.

Release the hounds!

Women get screwed over via marriage, fathers who don't pay alimony and shitty fathers, then they've got to deal with shitty MRAs on top of that. It's a load of shit.

No, it wouldn't. You don't tolerate intolerance just because you are tolerant. That's stupid.

"Hey, let's let racists into our anti-racism meeting." That's not logical.

Watching Raw is enough to send me into a deep depression.

AEW literally cannot fail to put on a better product. Even just not being blinded by the ridiculous, 500 billion LED lights across every single aspect of the arena will be lovely. Honestly despise the over produced, over the top mess WWE has as their stage these days.

Re: All Elite Wrestling Discussion Thread

Can we get the SJW bs out of this topic? Tired of hearing all that political nonsense when we're trying to discuss AEW.

So far their roster is getting pretty big and I imagine it will get even bigger by the time the Double or Nothing hits. I'm thinking a 50-60 man roster and 4 belts (World, TV/US/Cruiserweight, World Tag, World Womens) would be a great start.

It's a part of AEW's promotional strategy. The world isn't going to stop progressing just because you're a snowflake about it. 😉

EDIT: And just to put it in one place, if MRA are so concerned with men not getting a fair shake in court (and I’d like to see something other than hurt feelings and intuition on that subject), you’d think they’d be more concerned with shattering the dominant political structures that assume child-rearing is the sole domain of women, as opposed to going after the people who would actually give a fuck enough to challenge that status quo.

Logically, their ideology boils down to “wah, wah, wah.” Who wants that in their mid-card? I’d take known miscreant Austin Aries over that, haha.

Re: All Elite Wrestling Discussion Thread

Hopefully Punk, Dean, Sasha (if she can get out of her contract), nZo and Big Cass will be their next signings.

I doubt Punk ever comes back
Enzo and Cass signed with ROH.
Jon Moxley is coming
Sasha is going to have get out of her contract if she wants to leave. I doubt they let her go easily. Hell, they'll probably freeze her contract like they did to PAC.

I’d take Punk and Moxley. Nay to Enzo & Cass. Sasha is unlikely to get released, but if I were her, I’d make a stink to the media to some degree. Get Cousin Snoop to back up how they’re keeping her hostage. If she makes enough noise they’ll let her go.
