The professional wrestling scenes is the US and UK were just starting to really recover before quarantine kicked in. Over the last few years people have been talking about how the industry is much better than it used to be, with all the rapey alcoholics retiring and the new guys being a bunch of Woke nerds who play video games and work out, but the last week has been an avalanche of allegations, screenshots, and even video proof on Twitter under the SpeakingOut hashtag. An insane number of stories of child grooming, pedophilia, rape, kidnapping, mental and physical abuse, blackballing, demanding sex for work, and in one instance murder. This is just the stuff that hadn't already been out there.

Cue SD being all SD about it, and in this case he'd actually be right. Since this kicked off last week there's been wrestlers making shtein up to amuse themselves because they're all brain damaged 12 year olds and accounts popping up saying "This isn't my story, and they don't want me to tell it, but so and so is a huge piece of shtein". And then there's the creepy-ass fans getting together to put together fake screenshots of people they don't like. Even discounting those, you've got the regular everyday creeps who badger women for nudes or their number being lumped in with the guys getting dozens of rape and pedo allegations.

After you weed all that out, you've still got a lot of credible allegations, credible enough at least that scummy-ass wrestling companies who have always turned a blind eye to this shtein actually fired people or forced them to resign, some of them important to their companies. Most of them will almost certainly wind up somewhere else and be fine, but some of them are absolutely done in wrestling and are probably gonna wind up locked up or kill themselves. A couple of the brighter ones have come out and said "Yeah I did it, so what? Fight me and my totally real and not imaginary super lawyers. You should be grateful I ever did anything for you."

It's been exhausting to try and keep up with. There's literally nobody in wrestling that hasn't either enabled these people or at the very least was very good friends with them. Wrestling's always been full of the worst of humanity, and at this point you'd have to be an idiot to think it has any chance of ever being better.

Other than Roman Reigns I couldn’t name one current wrestler. I only know RR because I took my cousins to a Ppv event at wfc last year around this time.

They've basically erased him from the show since he's home in quarantine due to being a two-time cancer survivor.

It's fair to blame Reagan for the state of mental health care in the US, right?

Zero hour, Michael. It's the end of the line. I'm the firstborn. I'm sick of playing second fiddle. I'm always third in line for everything. I'm tired of finishing fourth. Being the fifth wheel. There are six things I'm mad about, and I'm taking over.

This is a z-tier youtuber your (grand)kids watch, most famous for being the guy or the brother of the guy who got in trouble for filming bodies in Japan's suicide forest. Early rumors are he's been dealing drugs and distributing porn without consent of the women in it.

I watch a ton of ID...saw this episode of “Your Worst Nightmare” before but it just popped up on my dvr. One of the most farged up real life stories I’ve seen on ID. It deserves to be in this thread even though he’s been in prison for over 30 years

There’s a scene in the book, “The Road” where the father teaches his son how to properly blow one’s brains out.  It was graphic and horrifying but also informative and likely foreshadowing what’s to come.

Anyway... happy Monday!
