Looks like Lars Sullivan was a horrendous scumbag back in the day.

Hopefully he's changed.

There's a loooooong thread on reddit about it, which is going as well as you'd expect.  

Some pretty horrendous stuff he's said, but I'd be absolutely amazed if no-one in the locker room or management doesn't know.  So maybe he's shown enough contrition for it to not be an issue for them.  WWE are usually pretty touchy about powderkegs like that, I'd imagine if they thought there was any chance it would explode, they'd want to be well away from it.

Still, he'll get dat heel heat, certainly.

Apparently WWE know about it, and indeed have known about it for a while.

If he apologised and was open about and genuinely has changed then I don't see any real issues, although I haven't seen all of the stuff he said.

Apparently he's made a statement about it.  It's a fairly identikit apology, but I like to think people can change.  I expect for a lot of people it won't matter what he says, but maybe he was just a thick c**t back then who wasn't really exposed to much diversity.  If he continues to have those kind of views, I expect he won't last much longer.

Anyone listened to Jericho's podcast this week? Really interesting show with Melzer about the death of WCW.

Melzer can be an annoying p***k, but he is good on this sort of thing.

Among all the despicable shit, I find it rather poetic that he made extensive remarks laughing and openly mocking people with mental health issues for being weak and then a few years later, flaked the f**k out with anxiety.

As of the 21st the Network won't be supported on older devices.

I use my Xbox360 and that is one of the devices that will no longer be supported so I'm done with the Network for a while (will be a bit before I can afford an Xbox One).

The video is very hard to watch. Unfortunately Juvi comes out of it looking like an absolute dick, the ref not much better.

Watched the video there, genuinely appalling how long they left him. What was that referee thinking!?

It's quite atrocious, no x up or anything. Clear as a bell he was at least unconscious when Juvi tried to turn him. To continue and then to not get help is sickening.

Incredibly clueless to what was going on. I've actually got sympathy for people in that situation. Ashton Smith tweeted that referees need to be trained in first aid. To be fair, referees in the big UK promotions ARE. Didn't recognize the guy in the video. I have to assume there was people who could have been more use in that position.

Absolutely wonderful of Elias to noise up the Scousers. 

 

Going down a Bret Hart style route by being a heel in Liverpool and a face everywhere else...
