tis vince and the arabs who are ruining their legacy.

that’s the third event they’ve hosted. i can’t remember if it’s 10 shows or a 10 year deal. it’s a disgrace when the women’s division is the best thing going for the company and the desert dwellers won’t allow them wrestle.

Think they’ve done way more than 3 shows over the years but yeah they’ve apparently a lucrative long term deal in place .

Kevin Owens and Daniel Bryan wouldn’t travel this time on ethical reasons , I can see that number rising each year .

Vince would have the old dolls back in bra and panties matches if the Arabs gave him enough coin.

Incidentally , there is a great podcast with Dustin Rhodes aka Goldust on talk is Jericho , the Chris Jericho podcast.

Goes into a bit of the backstory of how the gimmick
came about.

It was very controversial for the time.

Definitely pushed a few buttons alright, but he wasn’t the first. And interestingly by the late 90’s/early 2000’s these types of gimmicks were largely passé. Lenny Lane/Lodi and Billy/Chuck and Rico are the last ones I can recall. Weird to think that if you were portrayed as gay/effeminate then you were automatically evil.

‘Gorgeous’ George Wagner had been doing the effeminate gimmick in the 40’s and 50’s. ‘Exotic’ Adrian Street had been doing it in the 60’s in the uk and the 70’s and 80’s in the US. Adrian Adonis did the gimmick in the 80’s most notably .

All were heterosexual men pretending to be gay to attract the wrath of the paying crowd.

Given what I’ve read about Lars Sullivan he could easily snap and pull a ken Patera from years ago.

jesus christ. just watched taker v goldberg out of curiosity. how neither of them isn’t in a wheelchair today is ridiculous.

cole goes after the pin “the undertaker just realises he was in a battle!” no, m8. the undertaker realises he should be in a nursing home. unless vince has him in somecretsrfed contract he should head off into the sunset before killing himself or someone else.

as an aside, i’ve mentioned the saudis not allowing the wimmin to wrestle but what of the undertaker? would that gimmick not fly in the face of their beliefs? especially when the entrance was basically a rehash of the mania entrance with the druids.? or the demon, is that not heresy according to them?

seems like a double slap in the face to the better half of wwe at the moment.
