    I'm gonna be the odd man out here, but I do see a benefit to Andrade's name being shortened to one: it helps the audience figure out what to chant for him (since the plebs refuse to chant "I-do-lo! I-do-lo!").

    So chant for him, fans! Chant, dammit!

    Best getting paid for fuckall work story will always be Iron Sheik at WCW though. Got brought in on 100k a year based on how he'd wrestled 10+ years earlier. Couldn't go anymore so they said fuck it and sent him home.

    Then at the end of the year they forgot he was signed for them because he hadn't been around for so long.

    So they didn't cancel his contract and it rolled over for another year and another 100k.

    They then tried jobbing him out a bunch hoping it would piss him off enough to want to leave, but he was happy getting 100k to be a jobber and the matches sucked so they gave up and sent him home again.

    200k over 2 years for maybe 20 terrible matches.

    I dunno, Randy Savage's brother Lanny Poffo was under contract with WCW for 5 years and never wrestled a single match. Considering he was picked up as part of the deal to bring Macho across, I can't imagine it was small change either - to his credit, the dude repeatedly tried to contact the bookings office and even did a whole prep for a Gorgeous George gimmick that WCW eventually gave to Savage's then-girlfriend, so it's not like he deliberately milked it.

    They either just forgot or were happy for Lanny to sit at home while they got his brother on TV.

    He was already close to the point, but I think he's definitely crossed it now, where it looks like he has too much muscle and looks kind of gross because of that. Like, eat some carbs and cover some of those muscles up. That doesn't look healthy.

    I have a friend who is a pro body builder, he gets down that low for competition only and tries to bounce right back up to something more healthy after and even that cycle makes him much more prone to getting sick. He said walking around that way all the time would be really, really risking your health.

    That's because it is! Our bodies need a certain amount of fat store for all kinds of reasons to do with out immune system, our hormone balance, our energy reserves, hell, even the ability to control body temperature. Being ultra-shredded like a competing bodybuilder all the time with no-off season would probably take many years if not decades off your life if you somehow manage to not just die outright.

    Cody talked to ESPN about a possible union in AEW.
    A union in pro wrestling -- and that's this thing that people say all of the time, and they don't realize it -- a union in pro wrestling would put pro wrestling out of business. But, with that said, we should be actively working towards some sort of body, and this is outside of what I'm talking about with AEW and as me in the executive role, but we should actively be working to have the happiest talent you can possibly have.

    "Whether that starts as a talent feedback system, or a players' league, or some sort of body where there's a complete, transparent communication between those in the office and those in the locker room. That's massively important, especially when you are traveling the world. I think taking those steps, even if they are baby steps, is great.

    So, in short, no.

    Why would an union kill pro wrestling exactly?

    chrishallett83PreacherMagellMatevAndy JoeAJRLinespider5
  • burboburbo Registered User regular
    Reasoning is probably the same as any other business. The basis of profit is the exploitation of excess value created by the worker. If workers were able to get enough power to get some that back for themselves, the owners would say "awww shucks, this ain't even worth it".

    Because then wrestlers might get stuff like guaranteed sick time, vacation time, or health benefits. I mean god forbid they be treated like workers.

    I honestly don't know how indie companies survive as it is, to be honest, outside of the owners loving pro wrestling. I'd love to look at their balance sheets or what they call their balance sheets. I'm fairly certain Chikara shows are there to advertise their school, for example. The Wrestlefactory is not very big.

    WWE could afford a union, but the little guys....?

    AEW has Shadi Khan backing it.

    He’s probably the richest man to back a wrestling company since Turner and WCW.
