The Young Bucks On Selling Not Just A Wrestling Show But A Party

Nick: We have such passionate fans and we wanted to give back to our fans in a way, to make something special for one night.

Matt: It’s been very strategic too, how we were going to roll out the whole plan… We knew that we couldn’t just sell a wrestling event. You have to sell more than a wrestling event, you have to sell a feeling, you have to sell a movement. To make them {Fans} feel something like ‘hey this is for you’. Because right now is the best professional wrestling that there has ever been. Everybody can work, some of the best matches you’ll ever see… You’ve got to give the people something more than that you know what I mean? And I feel like they agreed with it, they felt it. They wanted to be apart of it. This movement, this change, you know? We wanted to show them, hey this is something new, fresh, and organic. It’s an alternative and it may be only celebrated one-time so let’s party. And that’s what we’re selling we’re selling a party And everyone wants to party with us and we’re glad they’re on board.

Young Bucks On Paul Heyman’s Tweet About The Selling Out All In

Nick: Almost everyone I’ve looked up to has reached out in a way. That blows my mind because it’s so cool to see some of the guys I grew up praising, praising us now its’ so weird.

Matt: For me, I think the Heyman one was really big because it feels like what he did with ECW was kind of a revolutionary new style of wrestling and he changed the wrestling business forever you know what I mean. And for him to say that about us I feel like he’s one of the greatest promoters of all time  and that’s what we essentially are now… So just to hear from a guy who always has his finger on the pulse of what’s cool in wrestling to give it up to us like that when he didn’t have to was really really cool of him.

Young Bucks On Who They Wish Could Be At All In From WWE

Nick: Oh man that’s a hard one. I’d have to use at least a few AJ Styles and Kevin [Owens}, the first two as well as a Sami Zayn. I’d like to use a lot of the guys though.

Matt: Man, Nick kinda stole my answers but I feel like giving a team who hasn’t really got called up, haven’t really had a fair shake, I’d love to have The Revival on the show and do The Young Bucks vs The Revival. That’d be my match probably.

The Young Bucks On The Original Venue For All In

Nick: We actually had to convince Super Dragon to move Battle of Los Angeles to a different weekend because we just needed all hands on deck for the date we found.

Matt:  July 7th at the Cow Palace, I don’t know if people even realized that. But that was our building and our date and we realized, wait a minute New Japan is probably gonna be in Long Beach in early July. So we probably shouldn’t run that weekend and we changed it. And they {New Japan Pro Wrestling} ended up running the same date in the building.

Conrad Thompson Talks About Why He Removed Vince Russo From Starrcast

I didn’t run it pass anybody, I didn’t have to run it past anybody, it’s my event, Cody {Rhodes} didn’t care, he wants me to be successful. I did invite everyone who had a podcast he {Vince Russo} said ‘yes’ and he was also willing to have fun with it. I’ve always sort of just decided that I’m gonna treat people the way they treat me. And he could not have been nicer and more accomodating. He’s the nicest guy ever in real life. But I realize sometimes when he’s producing content… he’s just trying to generate heat and buzz. I get it. What I didn’t realize when I announced him, that I was gonna get this overwhelming backlash. I did expect there to be people who were really fired up about him being there. We even joked that maybe we can do a Vince Russo dunking booth where the proceeds go to charity, I thought that be hilarious….I know he had been critical of the Young Bucks and Cody and guys like that before…the backlash online was ‘no he hates gays and lesbians and said this about Jewish people!’ I never heard any of that. I didn’t know any of that. So I talked to Vince and I said, ‘Hey Man, I don’t know what to do here?…’ He said, ‘Bro, You gotta make a business decision, I don’t wanna hurt your event, take me down and we can figure out something else we can do in the future.’ And I agree.

Conrad Thompson Talks About How Much He Had To Pay For The Starrcast Venue

I started doing some homework in late January as to where we might be able to host it. And I found a great friend named Scott, who does a of help behind-the-scenes with the Wrestling Observer board… in his real life he runs hotel chains. So he said this place has enough convention space… so it really pointed me in the right direction and we were able to pretty quickly make a deal and get a commitment for a venue which was a big undertaking and frankly a big risk because it was almost what I paid for my first house, as a personal guarantee to pull this convention off.

Conrad Thompson Talks About Who Couldn’t Make It to Starrcast   

I did reach out to literally…As much as I could, every major name in wrestling podcasting and asked. I asked Jim Ross and he was unavailable because that’s the kickoff of the football season and if you know Jim Ross he’s not gonna miss an opportunity to see opening day for the Oklahoma Sooners, so I get it. But I reached out anyway…I reached out to Edge but he’s gonna be filming Vikings Across the Pond so I get why he cannot make it. I also reached out to Chris Jericho and I guess Jericho has a bit of an understanding that he’s not gonna do anything wrestling related in the States unless it’s with Vince, which I totally get.

Welcome everyone to Flaming Pearl Oracles!  This will be the article discussing future events and match results through out Asia.

Before I begin, know that Asian and many in the Pacific do not provide results like you are accustomed to.  First, the promotions do not provide complete results, rather only one or two matches.  Secondly, unless you watch the matches (a few promotions are on ‘Nothing Else on TV’ livestream) you will not be provided details regarding how a match took place.

Finally, many of their articles are more advertisement than substance.  I will work to get as much information as I can to provide you the fullest account possible.

Chairshot Wrestling News Shuffle: Jim Ross and AEW, Dana Warrior and WWE creative, and changes to a WreslteMania Match? (3/22/19)

News here! Commentary today on Jim Ross and AEW, Dana Warrior and WWE creative, and changes to a WreslteMania Match ?



Dana Warrior

News here! Commentary today on Jim Ross and AEW, Dana Warrior and WWE creative, and changes to a WreslteMania Match ?

WWE Re-considering Kurt Angle’s WrestleMania Match ?

As I discussed in yesterday’s shuffle, there has been a lot of backlash in regards to Baron Corbin being named Kurt Angle’s opponent for his retirement match at WrestleMania. Originally, it had been widely reported that there are no plans to change the matchup. However, that looks like it could possibly changes. The Twitter account @WrestleVotes (an account that is usually correct with wrestling rumors) Tweeted today that the match is being re-considered.

Jason’s Take

Not surprised by this one. As I said yesterday, I am not a fan of Angle, but he deserved better. If they do change it, will they go with John Cena ?

Jim Ross To AEW?

We know that Jim Ross is finishing up with the WWE this month, and has long been rumored to be a part of AEW. Today, Ross appeared on Outside The Lines, and confirmed he has had talks with AEW.

Jason’s Take

Ross jumping to AEW is probably a worse kept secret than Kenny Omega joining the company. Ross being a part of the AEW announce team would give the company a recognizable voice that many American fans will recognize. But, much like I asked yesterday, what does bringing in former WWE wrestlers, announcers, and WCW match types due to generate interest? Are we moving forward or reliving the past ?


Speaking of actual AEW roster additions, the company announced today in the latest edition of their YouTube series The Road To Double Or Nothing, that IMPACT knockout Allie will be joining the company.

Jason’s Take

Allie is a great addition to the AEW women’s division. From what little I watch of IMPACT, Allie has been more than entertaining.

Update On Dana Warrior’s Creative Role

If you have been following the Chairshot the past few weeks (and if you haven’t, why the hell not?) you have seen many of the writers, including myself, discuss Dana Warrior and her roll on the creative team. Earlier this week I discussed her recent promotion to a full time creative role. Dave Meltzer noted today that there recently was an important creative meeting that other creative team members were not a part of.

Jason’s Take

It’s a slow news day, and I like to posted five news items. So to be honest, I’m killing space with this one. In all seriousness though, great reporting by Dave Meltzer. That’s why you should be reading the Chairshot everyday. We try to weed out the BS.

Original WrestleMania Plans For Rey Mysterio

This week on SmackDown Live, it was confirmed that Rey Mysterio would be taking on Samoa Joe for the United States championship at WrestleMania. The Wrestling Observer noted that there were originally other plans for Mysterio. The original plan was for Andrade vs. Mysterio in a hair vs. mask match

Jason’s Take

Mysterio vs Andrade at WreslteMania would have been a very entertaining match.
