Out of any WWE game though, it would be Firefly by Breaking Benjamin from Day of Reckoning


Forgot about Firefly. Yeah that would probably be mine too, the Day of reckoning games were the best, I remember I always used that one as my superstar's theme music is DOR1.

In the year 2008, WWE's total revenue from corporate sponsorship was $7.4 million. Since then, the company has been focused on a more PG product and promised sponsors that the days of racy TV were over.

This year, WWE's total revenue from corporate sponsorship is expected to be $20 million.

Credit: The Wrestling Observer via wrestlezone.com

Pretty insane numbers and a huge reality check for anyone that thinks the WWE PG era will be ending anytime soon.


I don't think anyone thinks it will end soon, it just means the product won't likely improve & become great for awhile.

didn't watch it with my friends this year but was told it was a good ppv with a great main event and angle putting on a 5* match

hay hitman, you listen to MLW radio right? you gonna give their subscription deal a look? i'm thinkin about it since it's like 7 bucks for the year or something, at least from what court said when they floated the idea around

Yeah the Angle/Roode match and AJ/Bully match were spectacular.

I'm tired of MLW tbh, they never do mailbag anymore and they just bitch and complain most of the time now. It's just hard to listen to at this point. What's included in the subscription?

they always do mailbag-- the final 20 minutes or so of the show is dedicated to the mailbag. i think the only so mailbag for the sunday show with konnan and not the pollock/bauer show, since st laurant does the mailbag stuff, and personally, i love that guy. he's hilarious and love when konnan makes fun of him

so i listened to the the latest show-- and i get where you're coming from, they bitch a lot about tna and i get being a big tna fan, yuou won't care for that too much. i dont either, but they do as equal criticism about wwe, but konnan was talking about triple a coming here and being in talks with comcast and stuff so i thought that was kind of cool. was saying that there will be some more cross promotion with tna and triple a in the future and him and jarrett being on good terms now and what he's doing for tna, now that he seems to be back in the business side of things

at the end, i found out the subscription deal is 15 bucks a year, and you basically get extra content in future shows, like when they interview someone on the show and past unreleased episodes of mlw radio, but even if you dont subscribe, we still get the weekly show for free, but the subscription allows us to hear bonus content for future interviews and i'm pretty sure on this show, they were hinting at another jericho interview for being their first subscription content and i have no problem with that. i happen to love mlw, cause im a huge konnan fan and would love for triple a to come here and do well since, more wrestling the better

anyways, i listened to the latest xpac interview on the austin podcast, and i loved it. pac is such a cool, down to earth guy and they touched when he tore his ass on that jerry lynn show and made light of it XD he also shared some real personal stuff that, normally you'd have to order a dvd to see the kind of stuff he said, but he was very open on the show, even said that triple h, being the clean guy he was, would join the boys for a shot or a beer or two. he didn't bull**** around. it was a really great hour

I don't think Konnan and TNA will do anything, Konnan has f*cked TNA over many times when sending talents over.

Hopefully Angle is ok.

They were on there way to a 5 star match, and easy MOTY candidate if not winner.

Even with the injury its atleast a 4 star match, but man what a match they were having too, I just really hope he is okay.

It seemed pretty obvious to me that it wasn't.

You could tell something was wrong, even when he got off the stretcher, when he held his hands up in the air, his fists weren't closed like they normally are, it was probably some nerve problem from the way he landed, with his neck problems it was probably a stringer/burner.

A “burner,” also called a “stinger,” is a nerve injury resulting from trauma to the neck and shoulder. Its primary symptom is burning pain radiating down one upper extremity. The pain is sometimes accompanied by numbness, paresthesias or weakness. Burners occur most commonly in football players, but they have also been reported in wrestlers, gymnasts and hockey players.1




But you could tell, I mean he wasn't right. Lets hope he can come back and this isn't a serious career threatening thing.

But then again I haven't heard anything since watching the PPV.

I was half paying attention to it, so I only really saw him get up and walk out on his own. That's why I figured it was a work. Plus I haven't seen any updates about it anywhere.

It was actually a pretty good number.

From Jericho's Twitter:

Also TNA is going back to Universal Studios Orlando with a new IMPACT Zone and new training facility with 24/7 programming!

In an arena that hold up to 12000?

Especially, in a state that's a hotbed for wrestling, those numbers aren't that great.

Hmmm, this should be interesting, good for them, it will save them money, hopefully the new impact zone looks a bit better on TV.

Maybe not the entire state, but Southern California is.

People come from LA, Mexico, and Arizona to see shows.
