Episode 130: Meekman’s Honorable Ring
Although RAW and Smackdown Live have been lackluster, a lot has been happening behind the scenes in the world of professional wrestling and The Accidental Wrestling Fan is here to break it all down for you.
Personal videos and pictures of Paige, Brad Maddox, and Xavier Woods were recently leaked by a hacker. It’s always unfortunate when these things happen. The guys discuss the fall out of the hacked videos and the bizarre reaction that some wrestling fans had when they found out the videos were leaked.
Impact Wrestling and The Hardys have been engaging in a bitter battle over who owns the trademarks of all of The Broken Universe characters and footage. Reby Hardy has been unleashing scathing Twitter rants about Impact Wrestling management. Impact Wrestling has responded, in one of the pettiest ways imaginable, by going through all of the Broken Hardy footage on their YouTube channel and adding a “TM” next to their names. All signs point to The Hardys being the owner of all of that intellectual property, but we won’t know until we see some contracts.
Dave Meltzer reported earlier in the week that WWE has been having talks with Ring of Honor about possibly buying the company. No official offer has been placed on the table but one can assume that there will be plenty of pros and cons to weigh about such an acquisition. More in-ring content on the Network is a great idea, but why add more talent and over-saturate your roster when you can use existing talent to produce in-ring content?
We would also like to take this opportunity to send our condolences to the family of Jan Ross. Jan Ross is the wife of legendary wrestling commentary Jim Ross. Jan was hit buy a driver while riding a Vespa and suffered several skull fractures. Unfortunately, Jan did not recover from her injuries and passed away. We wish Mr. Ross and his entire family the best in this trying time.Next Episode: Episode 131: WrestleMania Week!
