  1. WWE

    So yeah, said last page but seems to have been missed, Ryback looks on his way out. Feed Me MoreToday I sit and fly home and for the first time in years feel absolutely free. I will start by saying I did request to be taken off of WWE television until myself and Vince could get a yes or no on a new deal. This has been going on since my IC Title run and had been nothing but a major strain on my life as all I ever wanted to do was work for WWE. I was told to head home until we agree or not agree to specific terms and contrary to reports it isn’t over money or a bus that stuff was settled a while ago. It comes down to a major problem I have with not only WWE but wrestling in general.Wrestling is pre determined, we as performers know before we go out to that ring or perform a backstage scene who is winning and losing etc or have a general idea of what we are going to say. It blows my mind how in a sport which is pre determined from a company standpoint winners are paid so much more than the losers. Every single person who works for WWE from top to bottom is absolutely just as valuable as the next. The winners cannot win unless the losers go out there and agree to lose to them.It blows my mind that in this day and age though we still adhere to this formula. Obviously things have always been this way, but does that make them right? Times have changed and our goal as humans should be to evolve and learn from our past and the past of others so we could make this world a better place. Why is it a guy who is told he is going to go out and lose and does everything he is told be paid not only less, but much less than said winner over a period of time. Every single performer for WWE sacrifices the same amount of time from home and their families and every single man or women goes out and does what they are told. Looking at this formula though losers turn into what fans like to call jobbers and their value decreases in the companies eyes and before you know it they get released. For what? For doing exactly as they are told!Why not pay the talent equally? The winners have more MERCH as it is or are supposed to anyways so they get that extra perk, but why make the guy who is told to and agrees to lose earn less and sacrifice spots in big pay per view match ups etc. This is one of the major problems with wrestling and WWE today. Most guys take great satisfaction in helping making other talent, the bitching and the moaning we always hear about stems from the fact they know they are ultimately over time going to make less and live in fear of being released.I am proud to say I have never gone to change a finish and have gladly took pride in helping put over other talent. Hell look at my pay per view record of 12-26 and you will see that has been the pattern of my career. I have always been confident in my ability and work ethic to being my best every day and ultimately always felt that by doing good it was the right thing to do. Personally seeing my money go down over the years though even though I was working as much as ever and being denied magazine covers and other projects as well as watching my role diminish no matter what I did or how hard I tried takes its toll on a human. Being told no matter how hard I work or how good I get doesn’t always pay off is something I fucking refuse to ever believe in my life. I am a creative being and to be restricted time and time again is no way to live life. There is nothing I cannot do and I know no matter what comes of this situation I am going to be just fine. It isn’t soley about money, it is about commitment. Commitment to a guy who fucking cares and who loves this more than anything in the world and wants to know that his passion his efforts and his determination to constantly improve is going to be recognized and taken care of.WWE may very well release me, which if it is the case so be it. If we can work things out a lot needs to change as I am not living in fear and creatively cannot continue to live a life that limits me creatively. I have many other interests and passions and have been very smart with my finances over the years. I thank every WWE superstar from top to bottom for their sacrifices and for working with me. The world is an amazing place and there is more than just a WWE universe there is The Universe and I will prove one way or another over time I am the greatest big guy in the universe!

    Oh so looks like it could be Ryback who's leaving WWE. Maybe this was the guy who was rumoured as the second guy after Barrett leaving in summer.

    Reigns is just Cena mark 2. Thats it. Ambrose can have a great match if its right, but lets face it, he's been booked poor and he's facing a stale as fuck Jericho. We've all said it but Jericho, Kane, Big Show all been on our tv since the 90's. Why is Jericho even on the 'new era' PPV. Ambrose v Rollins on PPV last year was one of the MOTY for me.
  4. Godiva 2016

    I only just saw Godiva added a whole mass load of acts the other day. Also confirmed the Sunday, Pidgeon Dectectives aren't subbing Scouting For Girls but theres still a sub to be announced, seems like Sunday is getting a fair whack of budget this year then.

    The one below is Royal Republic. AAF have confirmed they're playing at 2pm. Main arena starts at 1pm on Friday at Download, always has 8 acts on main with this time frame, but AAF confirming they're on at 2pm when usually second on main stage is 1.45, its clear they're just spreading it out, so I'd imagine we are just getting one more act on main stage. In reality, its as much a cop out when AC/DC played and we only had 4 acts on main stage and then AC/DC play their set on their stage. But that was ok because it was to allow the budget of AC/DC playing and their set up. Whats the excuse this year?

    Andy has always maintained Friday is a full day, which means 8 bands, well 7 cus of that 'tribute' So really we should get 2 more above AAF
  7. Victorious 2016

    Came in to say two things. 1 - Ashcroft announced as main support for Noel the Friday in Glasgow, id be shocked if he isn't subbing him at Victorious as well now. 2 - Noel confirmed to be playing a 75 min set at Y Not, so I'd expect he will play same set, probably same setlist even at Victorious too. Both is good news.
  8. Comolli story in the Telegraph and Express huh. Doesn't mean a thing until we see who actual buys Villa #avfc

  9. Football 2015/16

    I know there's a big discussion point to have today. But I just have to come in and say, as a lifelong Villa supporter there hasn't been a lot, hell anything to be happy about this season, but hearing that Petrov has made a full recovery and wants to actually play for us full time next season and feels he's able to do so, that is something really special right there. Im so happy for him and it would be a massive plus for us to have him back captaining the side. What a legend.

    Waltman absolutely HATES her, they had a legal case going between them I believe and she accused him of something he said he never did. Notice he's not said a word on twitter in a week, when he's usually very vocal. Hasn't paid any respects to her passing. Trust me, there was very, VERY, VERY bad blood between them.
  12. Game of Thrones discussion thread

    I just finished watching it and thought it was an excellent episode. I seriously don't know what people expect.
  13. Ufc

    I think all the business with Conor, its gotten much more attention in the press than UFC would normally get. Its all free marketing. Thats all it is.
  14. Lineup 2016

    Does anyone else believe if EODM ween't in the Paris attacks they wouldn't be in 4th slot. This whole line up is absolute balls, I didn't go to Reading for absolute ages then in 2013 they got me back, but every year since has been getting worse, this is just laughable. £60 a day its value, but on a whole as a festival bill it just does nothing for me, can't see me ever returning to Reading again. I guess im just too older for who they're aiming for. Which is fine :)
