Forgotten sons gimmick can g&gf. Hate that USA USA respect the troops crap.
You chose a profession as a soldier, got paid doing it, and now return, chip on shoulder, wanting "recognition". Same Yay we heart military heroes junk is creeping in here (Australia) as well.

Yeah it's wrestling, but don't want to watch that garbage
Without following intently the last 2 months, I assumed they were a Sons of Anarchy gimmick. Was wondering where their motorcycles were

Need more of that vintage "Real American" heroics IMO, like Hulkamaniac head-butting the Russian Flag before fighting Nikolai Volkov in the 1980s. More hokey and exaggerated racial stereotypes please, lke a vaguely-asian wrestler who rocks up in hazmat suit. Finishing move could be a cough into their elbow followed by a sleeper hold. Cut a promo in the mens toilet then walk to the ring without washing their hands. This sh*t writes itself, how easy is it.

I'll quote dave verbatim from the F4W/WO Board:
"The inability to differentiate between comedy and serious is quite the minority view. To then take that as WWE vs. AEW is just amazing. Don't be paranoid at that level."

"It's fair to be offended by it. I didn't think about it for one second, made no connection. the people who used that to jump on AEW vs. WWE are so deep in the forest at this point that my mind spins.

If they are offended, they have the right. That would never be my issue. But comedy is very different from violence. I even think the part about him floating probably shouldn't have been done even as comedy in hindsight, but it never occurred to me watching it.

But once you talk AEW vs. WWE, it's so clear an agenda."

anyway, let's just enjoy the shows and make our own judgments without having to rely on others to validate our viewpoint.

Good quote. At the time i didn't even think about it, i was too engrossed in what i was watching and crying in laughter seeing the different versions of Matt.

Can understand why some might be offended by it though.

No in real life. The post said a wrestler drowned saving his son
Shad gaspard from cryme Tyme drowned at the beach life guards swam out but he told them to save his son first as they came back for him a wave hit him and washed him away

So aew thought it was a good idea to put his tribute over the ocean and waves

Then later on in the ppv had a wrestler “drown” mind you this is like less than a week since the tragedy

Meltzer and co thinks it’s fine yet the orton/edge thing is scummy and in poor taste about a legit sh*t person over a decade later

After making some appearances as enhancement talent for WWE, Deonna Purrazzo was chosen to perform at All In in 2018. However, shortly after being listed on the card, WWE made her a contract offer and she joined NXT instead of performing at All In.

But Purrazzo wasn't used much by WWE during her two years in NXT. She was asked if WWE signed her just because she was announced for All In when she joined The Wrestling Inc Daily podcast.

"Yes, and I probably said that to some of the wrong people in NXT," admitted Purrazzo. But I 100 percent feel like me being announced for All In… this culminated in, 'she's gonna go somewhere else and do something good with other people' so we're gonna bring her here. If they had done something with me, then that would have been fine. But I feel that in the last year or two with AEW, [WWE] tended to be hoarding. Talent wasn't being released but so much talent was being brought in that I suffered from so many women coming in and then we're all from the same background.
In addition to NXT bringing in lots of female talent all at one, Purrazzo says the creative ideas she pitched weren't received favorably or even at all.

"It just fell on deaf ears because the attention wasn't for me to be a Superstar. It was just maybe to take me off the table," stated Purrazzo.

She then talked about the culture at NXT and if other talents had similar frustrations to what she had.

"I really felt the culture was 'you should be grateful for what you have and don't ask for more.' Maybe before I got to NXT there was a procedure where you came in, you learned, you waited and then maybe a year or two you'd be put on TV," said Purrazzo. "But when I started, there was women that came from the indies and were successful so it's like, I'm not gonna sit around and wait. I'm not gonna twiddle my thumbs and be happy I have a job at NXT.
I'm gonna push the boundaries and push you to do more with me.

"I know I felt that way and there's a ton of people who felt that way.
Ultimately, when all of these releases happened it was the people voicing frustration and maybe the idea that they didn't wanna be here anymore if nothing was gonna happen. Maybe being released was the best option and I think that was the case with a lot of people that ended up being released."
