A correction from last night's show regarding Regal's deal. Based on what he said when he signed, his deal signed last spring was for three years.

Juan Olaguivel (1908-1983) Born in Spain, most of his U.S. bouts took place between 1935-40. He found a home on the Brazilian pro wrestling scene, and eventually settled in Argentina. He also had minor roles in over 30 films from 1936 to '72 including Spartacus.

I watched from the apron in amazement tonight. It had nothing to do with his moves or his athleticism. I was in awe of the little things he did. Things that made millions fall in absolute love with Ricky. They all reacted to the man; not the moves. I felt inferior tonight.

It's kind of my job to have those numbers. Been doing this since before there was PPV.
Please explain where private ppv particulars are available.

Bob Backlund vs Ken Patera | In-ring Statistics | Wrestling Observer Newsletter Match of the Year 1980. The Wrestling Observer Newsletter's first Match of the Year was an entertaining clash between household name; Bob Backlund, and a Ric Flair-esq heel. #WON #WWF

Pat Patterson vs Sargent Slaughter | In-ring Statistics | Wrestling Observer Newsletter Match of the Year 1981. A bloody affair between two of the '80s biggest names. Patterson really took the match to Slaughter. #WON #WWF

This was at Joe Louis Arena in Detroit, Michigan. I believe JLA may be the the only site where both Ric Flair and Hulk Hogan dropped the titles they are most identified with as champions. Flair lost the NWA title to Ronnie Garvin at JLA in 1987. Flair a common thread here.

I promise I'll write about in the Observer if/when it happens, likely months before, just like I wrote about it when any company in the last 40 years made cutbacks. Just like we did with AEW's weaker advances months before anyone else did.
And so Tony is just in constant conversation with Meltzer letting him know all of the financial decisions he’s making?

Actually he outright told me if they can't sell enough tickets for road shows, they'll tape everything in Jacksonville. There are ways to cut back on expenses if losses are high, public or not, just like we saw it with WWF 90s, WCW 99-01 & TNA. It's easy to spot.

Yes, I just said that's why they do it. Because it's cost-effective. But they didn't cut back on live taping dates, and in fact they are doing more live Fridays and talking about more shows. When they tape two Wednesdays together, that's a cutback.

Didn't Tony Khan just run Rampage on Friday and the PPV on Saturday in Newark earlier in the month? Isn't that two shows in the same venue in the same week?

The key signs would be lots of talent cuts, taping every other week live instead of weekly live, and/or taping regularly in Jacksonville where the cost of taping for him is much lower. When any of that happens, you'll know there are issues.
Yeah I’m sure he is but no one really knows. Not public so not known. Point is you’ll never know because Tony want change things that would make it look like they are losing money because of ego since financially he doesn’t have to.

He's already changed things such as running the same market twice or three times in the same week. He makes P/L decisions constantly. If PPVs lost money, he'd cut back, but they are very profitable.

I love it when social media celebrities and Internet trolls have to meet the harsh reality of the real world.
The 'Internet Karate Kid' shows up to his first #MMA Training session and ties to teach the coach... It goes terribly wrong... 😮🤣

Talked about it extensively on the Friday show.

I still enjoy your reporting. I was a little baffled that on the latest WON nor you or Bryan had an issue with the Elites mocking of Punk. It just show’s unprofessionalism from a management figure regardless of what side you’re on. I want AEW to succeed but they lost me this week

For the show it would be tremendously profitable. Impact ran profitable PPVs on 15,000 buys, didn't cut back from 12 TV PPVs until numbers were much lower. You'll know when they aren't profitable when they cut back from four to a lower number.
Replying to @davemeltzerWON
I respect the 7.5 million number. However what is the profit number if any? It's easy for any wrestling company to puff their chest and say we had a 7.5 million dollar show, but they made zero profit from the show. Is it successful without a profit?
