· Hiding in the shadows
Well, if there was anything to replace the Aussies with, I guess this would be it?!
Shouldn't this also apply to those whoI suggest the people who won´t even comment on what he says simply stay out of threads about his podcasts. You don´t have to agree with him, you can even call him a fool, as long as you comment on what he said.
Ha ha, look at the mistake Woody made!!! OMG-WTF-ITS Tony Khan couldn't re-sign Goldberg...It’s just an agreement that stipulates that Cornette can’t divulge AEW’s business strategies. He’s gotten dangerously close when he revealed that Tony Khan was planning to re-sign Goldberg and give him another streak. But that’s probably in the clear because it didn’t happen and Goldberg signed with the WWE.
BOSS, as far as I'm concerned, ANYTHING Cornette has to say is a low-tier troll.Except none of us ever wanted an echo chamber. We're always willing to debate Cornette's opinions, even with each other. The problem is people like you attack Cornette with ad hominem bullshit without even addressing the topic at hand. Nobody cares to read that low tier trolling. I'm scrolling past it every time.
Do some of you not read anything that you post, or is it just a nervous twitch that makes people type out the same things, others do, but being guilty of the same things yourselves?!? For saying exactly what I said...You´ve been saying for months now "Don´t like, don´t watch." It´s only fair that some are beginning to say the same to you.
People comment on what they read in the thread, if they don´t like it they say so.
You don´t like Cornette or his opinions? Fine, you´re entitled to your opinions -As I´ve said numerous times, I don´t always agree with him either.
But then what are you doing in a thread dedicated to him, other than actively try to derail it.?
How about people stop listening to you?! Sound good Woody? Again, the hypocrisy is strong with this one. You don't "report" users, but you sure like to bring attention to others, when they say a naughty word or two. Look what you replied to Pippen with, "Can we start by not listening to you? Still nothing of substance. At least this time you’ve dressed it up with some historical (albeit incorrect) references to make it sound like wisdom. It’s not. It’s hogwash." and then you cry-wolf for feeling threatened/belittled/embarrassed/wrong, when those same people shove it right back in your face! I swear, it must be an Aussie thing because the only thing I ever see you do, is you taking offence to any "false" opinion that is not yours and then try to "debunk" their opinions with your own. What goes on in upside-down land? Is that it? Perhaps your equilibrium is off?Can we start by not listening to you? Still nothing of substance. At least this time you’ve dressed it up with some historical (albeit incorrect) references to make it sound like wisdom. It’s not. It’s hogwash.
Tastes don’t change as much as you assert they do. That’s marketing talk to try and sell you something you don’t need and don’t want. Presenting old school logic with new wave talents is the Cornette philosophy, and judging by what gets a good reaction re: AEW (Jungle Boy vs. Dax this week), that tickles people just fine.
So, AEW is Vince's fault then? That's good to know. Get over yourself, Js.Ct. Tony talked about starting up a new promotion with Cody, The Bucks, ROH and others, over the All In PPV weekend in 2018. Nothing serious, just enough to gauge if it could actually work. After 10,000+ fans showed they wanted something other than WWE, AEW was put into motion and announced their promotion, AEW, January 1st 2019. For you to allege that the only reason AEW was formed was because of lucrative TV deals with WWE is purely asinine. Because WWE got two TV deals, that automatically meant that TV Executives were just handing them out like candy at Halloween?Orange Cassidy is not a star. Not even within the bubble of his own universe. He’s no better off than when he first showed up.
The Bucks didn’t build AEW, ffs. Vince McMahon’s rights fees encouraged a billionaire to snap up Chris Jericho and the most prominent free agents on independent wrestling to internet fans. That created AEW. The Bucks are interchangeable.
Seriously Woody, are you for real or just some kind of programmed spam-bot?! I swear. Hell, I don't know what to think your agenda is anymore. You've been schizophrenic for a few weeks now, which I think, may be due to your lack of "spanners" around here. You definitely have a NPD. I have zero doubts.I feel this myself. I seriously wonder how many times people can see the same flips and think “COOL!”. Surely it must become white noise to people?
This is a discussion forum. People are allowed to discuss.
There’s nothing wrong with mentioning the past of a 61 year old performer. Especially when they are trying to do the same gimmick they did in the 90’s. How are you supposed to talk about it? Treat him like he’s a new youngster on the block?
Cornette has specifically said several times that the time Sting was the most over was when he didn’t say anything for a year. So you agree with Corny on that point. Cool.
Don’t know what you’re going on about re: the glass. It looked shit on video, that’s the point. Again, you seem to agree with Cornette here.
So basically you agree with Cornette except you don’t like that he actually draws on his experience or the history of the wrestler when talking about them. Neato.
Oh, I'm not basing anything via WebMD. It's my own personal experiences and a few years of education, that I've used to conclude my overall "diagnosis" (not only today, but many months ago).
Again, to set the record straight about my "whining and bitching" posts, the multiple daily, "AEW sucks because..." threads are not only bait, but have also been questioned and answered ad-nauseum. Every forum, not just AEW, does not need a thread like this two or three times a day. I haven't watched WWE in years and I stopped watching NXT about 7 months ago. Would it be okay if I went into every WWE forum, shitting on a product I don't watch, telling those fans of their product, that their opinions are wrong, "because WWE sucks"? The answer is obvious, no it wouldn't. I also don't like raisin-bread, screaming kids, the middle-seat on an airplane, or reality-shows, just to name a few. Should I be allowed to express my disgust with those parties as I see fit and also, should they have to listen to me complaining about it two or three times a day?
No buddy, you constantly whine and run to mods for threads that are harmless. Its literally because you dont like seeing criticism.
No, I bring attention to threads that are oft-repeated day in and day out.
Most of these threads the poster isnt baiting anyone but inviting discussion yet youre constantly looking to get people banned.
@Firefromthegods maybe you can help this guy out with the number of people I've asked to be banned or have banned because you know, I got stroke around here.
It just reeks of the type of snivelling fan Cornette is talking about.
No sir, I'm proud that I don't parrot his opinions as my own opinions. I guess I'm not cool enough to understand why he's so spot-on and funny. I'd never take any advice from Jim, based solely on what the old fuck (who was fired from every job he's had) says in 2021, yet keeps talking like it's 1984. His shit didn't work then and it's sure as hell not going to work today. The guy is his own Albatross.
You cant justify it. You and a few others are trying to create an environment where people get punished for bringing up valid criticisms, you want an echo chamber.
You don't see the other side of that same "argument?" If all of us whiners left this board you guys would be giggling like a Japanese schoolgirl first, only to realize that you've got nobody to respond to you when all the haters are saying the same things. You want that type of echo-chamber for yourself? Go ahead, take it.
Funny thing is in most of these threads you start running to mods about, theres already decent discussion going. You just dont wanna see it.
This board has one full-time Mod and one part-time Mod, so not everything will be seen or dealt with the second it's posted, but eventually, someone is going to see it. I'll use a Wood-ism... "it depends on what you already think is decent because we all don't like the same things..." I don't want to see ten threads of the same "AEW sucks" each and every day. I always wonder why that is. Is it like you just woke up one day and thought, hey AEW is so much better today than it was yesterday? No, you'll still have the same "opinion" you had 2 years ago, that same "opinion" you have today and the same "opinion" you'll have 2 years from now.
Why should you have so much control over what people are allowed to discuss?
Again, I will ask @Firefromthegods to answer this question for you.
Can you not scroll past if you dont agree with a thread? Is it that hard? Does
the criticism upset you that much you have to prevent others having a discussion?
I can ignore it, I can block it, I can read it and I can reply to it... all the same things you're able to do here too. Do me a favor... put any five random users on block, go into a busy thread and start reading. Notice anything? Kind of like it doesn't make any sense? The users you've blocked are essentially talking to themselves and the more you read, the more confused you become as to what is even being talked about.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm barred from being in this thread. Talk again if you must, but I will not respond.
I'll start by requesting that you don't ban Garty, as he was summoned here.
Why thank you BOSS... although it may not help me from being banned anyway.
Now, to answer your post. Your argument implied that EVERYONE who complains doesn't watch the show, and that premise is incorrect. I watch all 2 hours of Dynamite every week unless there's something I have no investment in whatsoever, in which case I don't give it much energy. However, if they do something egregiously stupid with angles and wrestlers that could be great if presented otherwise, I'm going off. I get mad at AEW because it could be so much better than it is if the people in charge knew what the fuck they were doing. The lack of cohesion is infuriating and it's justified for anyone to be outraged by the sporadic, nonsensical booking.
I've never argued that all haters don't watch the show. What I've said all along, is that if you don't watch it, you should not have a voice in the discussion. I know nothing of The Rock's TV show, so does that mean I can/should go to the WWE board and shit all over something I haven't seen or care about? That's the mentality at play here... "I don't need to watch it, to know it sucks". Why does it anger you so much, that a talent, or angle, didn't go your way? Other than time, what other investment do you have in the company? Most users here would love to see AEW fail, but here we are two years later and AEW is still going. So, when is enough, enough for you? Can you dislike something? Can you hate something? Of course, but everything you (or anyone) doesn't agree with, also doesn't need to have three different user threads, all screaming the same thing.
You never acknowledge the criticisms, you try to mute the criticisms by saying "if you don't like it, just leave." That's not how forums work. Forums are built for discussion. The AEW fanboy hive mind on this site (and others) doesn't want anyone to share their negative opinion of anything under any circumstances, and that's utterly ridiculous. There's a defense for every stupid thing that happens on this show, even when the wrestlers and executives themselves admit they fucked up. You guys would excuse Tony Khan pulling his pants down and taking a shit in the ring 'because he couldn't make it to the bathroom in time.'
I don't talk about the bad, you're right. I can look beyond the bad and form my own opinion of what I liked and what I disliked. In other words, if I'm not commenting on a certain subject, doesn't that mean I have nothing to say? I don't feel the need to rush here and tell everyone about it. If you're already going into the show with that bias, then of course you're not going to like 90% of the show. AEW's shows are booked long-term and that's been obvious since day one.
I don't care if you love AEW, that's fine, but at least make an attempt to counter the argument instead of deflecting with Jim Cornette (fan) ad hominem or assuming everyone who criticizes the show is a WWE fanboy that doesn't even watch it.
I appreciate AEW and what Tony Khan has done in only two years. At least give him that amount of credit. Yes, I completely despise, loath and hate Jim with a passion, but unlike him, I can move on. I will not listen to him, or give him the clicks he needs to continue to make a living. Once I've given my opinion on a subject, there's nothing else to discuss. My opinion is just that, my opinion. I don't state them as "facts" as some do. We can disagree, go back and forth, or argue over something until we're blue in the face, but in the end, what had we accomplished? Nothing and now we're both back at square-one. What then and when is enough, enough?
I'm out of here though BOSS. I'm not pushing my luck any further.
I'm glad your name is The Wood because that would explain the extra 18 inch Pinocchio nose you grew when you actually wrote that. I don't believe for one second that you didn't know about the thread. You've been called out from the very first post and if you have all these users "backing you up" shouldn't they have told you two days ago now?!Haha, I haven’t checked on it in a while. Or is this a different one? Either way I’m torn between letting them have their fun and paying no mind to what doesn’t matter and going in there to layeth the SmackDown.
But to all those who do stick up for me (if anyone), please know I do appreciate it. If I don’t thank you, it’s just because I haven’t seen it because little people deserve little attention.
Is this a comment on Aubrey, AEW, or wrestling in general? I've been watching wrestling for about 40 years now and I've seen all sorts of tags made, in the exact ways he's described in the video. Hell, the one of "being slapped on the back by your tag-partner" is done on every wrestling show every week. Anything to talk shit about AEW though...
Which one of his and by-proxy, your, "predictions that will come true"? Help me out here Woody:Cornette is going to be proven right. A lot of people already know he is. But it will be unarguable soon.
C'mon man, you should have learned by now that anyone who posts/talks about wrestling (inside or outside of the ring), Woody will call anyone who disagrees with him, or presents other "facts", as an idiot... I mean, it's literally right there in his reply to you DT.Christian is literally using "out work everyone" on national TV, and you're still saying workrate is a ridiculous term?
It's just a derivative of workhorse
Yes and those people are called... fucking lemmings and fucking morons! Imagine going to a show you know nothing about, just to see one guy and then "hope" the rest of the show lives up to their excitement for Punk only? Yeah, that seems kind of ass-backward, but look who's saying it.I really hope one of the things Jim and Brian talked about on the Experience happens. They said what if some of the lapsed fans who stopped watching due to the PG clown show WWE became start tuning in and then coming to shows because of Punk? They will cheer Punk loudly, but if in the next segment they present Dwarf Dong Sucker, a Hardly Boys choreography routine with the corpse ref and no rules, or you have Trashitty phantom kicking someone, will they completely shit on the goofy stuff like they used to do to Cena? That would be glorious to watch. I really hope it happens.
