    These guys weren't bad either. I'd say Mach and Piper probably cut the best promos of any in-ring performers ever. Hot Rod was just brilliant.

    Cornette has a YouTube show (it's audio from his podcasts) that is great. It's basically just him shooting the shit about wrestling today and about all of the stuff that used to happen in the old days. His memory for detail is unbelievable. He'll tell a story about a Tuesday night show from 1986 at some small venue in some town you've never heard of and talk about the finish to the show like it happened the night before. He could be completely making it up, but damn it's entertaining either way.

    And I'll echo MF5150's recommendation for anything with him talking about Russo, or "shit stain" as Cornette likes to call him. It's absolute gold.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    I haven't watched wresting in years but for some reason I love hearing people talk about it, especially when it turns into story time with Uncle Jim where he starts talking about all of the crazy stuff that happened in the old days and how different it is now. I grew up as the WWF was really hitting with Hulk and the Macho Man and then I got into wrestling at the WCW/NWO time period. Maybe when my son gets older he'll get into it and it will give me an excuse to watch it again.

    Not to keep replying to my own comments here, but I found this interesting. Apparently WWE Network had 1.6 million paid subscribers in the 3rd quarter of 2020. Assuming everyone is paying the full amount (I don't know if there are discounts, but maybe they've offered them), that would be 9.99 X 1,600,000 subscribers per month, which is almost 16 million dollars. Over a year it's a little over 191 million. Over 5 years it's almost 960 million. That doesn't make it look as good of a deal in my opinion as they basically bought 40 million dollars from the future and sold any potential upside to the subscriber base. Depending on advertising revenue on the channel (I don't watch it, but I would assume they sell add content and other sponsorships on there), they should easily get more than that amount over 5 years. I would assume Peacock will now get the rights to sell advertising on their content instead (or at least in addition to, which means cutting into any advertising revenue WWE had sole ownership of previously).

    I guess if you need revenue certainty it makes sense (and given the climate and their business of doing live events, that makes perfect sense), but as a business decision they are definitely sacrificing some potential future $$ growth for that revenue certainty now. Their stock price is down a bit today on this news which makes sense.
    also important to note here that while they may have 1.6 million subscribers, that's worldwide. The Peacock deal I imagine is only for the US portion of their subscribers. I would bet that a good portion of the 1.6 million are outside America, I'd guessing around 500k or so and that might be where they imagine future growth might come from. So they lock in their revenue on the US side where 1 million subscribers is probably as good as they're gonna get and hold on to the rest of the world. Doesn't sound like a bad move if that's what is happening.
