Tom Wilson, AKA Biff Tannen, added.

Funny how he went from a nearly impossible to get name, to a total con whore, within a couple of years.

Re: All Elite Wrestling Promotion Confirmed

Vince basically signed Goldberg to a six month deal for his last run - not even an opt-out, just a deal where he KNEW that he was only coming on from like Survivor Series to WrestleMania. And he had him basically squash his most protected talent in Lesnar too - all knowing that six months from then,...

Re: All Elite Wrestling Promotion Confirmed

Could all that be real? Has anyone ever been offered opt out deals by WWE? I have no idea if it's real, but today's WWE contractual attitude is completely 100% different than what it was during the Monday Night Wars, or even 5-10 years ago. They've licensed TNA footage to air on Network shows, and ...

Re: All Elite Wrestling Promotion Confirmed

The Being the Elite show would've been terrrrribbbllleee. Opt out is interesting but, honestly, WWE could push them to the moon for those first 6 month then pull their typical bullshit with them in years two and three and they'd be stuck there. But if that is accurate, they're crazy to have NOT tak...

Re: All Elite Wrestling Promotion Confirmed

Has anybody in the modern era of US wrestling, other than WWE, EVER gotten a big money TV rights deal from a network? WCW was owned by the same corporate group that owned the network, and I don't think TNA and ECW were getting huge revenue off of their TV deals, and they were already established com...

Re: All Elite Wrestling Promotion Confirmed

The bigger problem is, where is the incoming revenue going to come from? If they go a traditional PPV route, you have NJPW and WWE giving you their entire library for ten bucks a month, so are people in large numbers going to pay $20+ anymore for a single wrestling PPV? They don't have an existing t...

Re: All Elite Wrestling Promotion Confirmed

Yeah, I mean the guy was working 10+ PPVs a year during the Attitude Era, including multiple high profile WrestleMania matches, so I'm skeptical on the "best money deal he ever had" claim he's saying. Like I said, I don't believe that's the case, but if the Khan's really are out-spending what Vince ...

Re: All Elite Wrestling Promotion Confirmed

Unless it's top guys who can make a difference, I really don't want to see them just grab up a bunch of available WWE guys. TNA went that route for a while, and it just made them look like they were picking up Vince's discarded table scraps. Honestly, they'd be better off pretty much ignoring WWE fo...

Re: Another 2018 toll: Perverted Justice

Also to be fair, immediately selling authentic autos of dead wrestlers is just good business. Key word "authentic". When a wrestler drops dead and somebody immediately FORGES and sells their graphs before the body is even cold, which is what happened in the situation involving this person, that's j...

I certainly wouldn't travel for him, but if this show somehow gets me there, I'd actually probably get Billy Mitchell - assuming he's cheap.

Re: National Lampoons Vacation Send-In Signing (Chase/D'Angelo)

If they add Anthony Michael Hall, I'll be pretty much complete on my piece. I would still add Christy Brinkley and Miriam Flynn if they came around, but I'd still consider it done even if I never got them.

Re: Convention of the year nominations

I wasn't there, so maybe an actual attendee should "nominate" it, but Alamo City Comic Con brought out Arnold, Rick Moranis, and dozens of other strong "con regulars" that would probably headline most cons.
