@shindig: It's based on a documentary that came out some time ago. The Rock wanted to turn that into a movie.

Ah, Fighting with the Family or whatever it was. I'll only watch that if Rock casts himself as Paige.

@bladededge: There's one video of someone that is black and isn't 100 percent Xavier Vs. a ton of Paige videos with one featuring a WWE belt

This is not the difference between men and women

@koolaid: Oddly enough, this might actually be a saving grace for Paige. She's been a pretty shitty employee basically since she was called up to the main roster and was probably well on the path to getting justifiably let go in the near future. But now, if she's let go, everyone will think it was because of the sex stuff and it'll look real bad for WWE.

@wynnduffy: Was not a comment on this specific scandal but on how I expect things to turn out.

That said if your trying to make an argument about the differences between how men and women get treated when it comes to sexual scandal/rumor? This isn't the thread for it, and I doubt either of us will convince the other of anything.

For what its worth I was just reacting reflexively, and not trying to toss in a liberal gotcha or some-such. So if you were offended, my apology.

That said, if your a fan of the new-day, the fact Xavier had sex with Paige isn't likely gonna change your opinion of him, or his team.

If that's all it was, then I'd agree, but given all the details my opinion of him(and the others involved) has decreased a fair bit. I mean, Xavier, Maddox and Paige can do whatever the hell they want, even if I think it's fucking stupid and have no idea why Xavier(or anyone) would want to participate with her and her boyfriend, but also being fucking stupid enough to film it? A lot of people need to use their damn brains more instead of thinking with their other parts.

@metalbaofu: Why would someone's sex life change your opinion of him as a YouTube star? Why does it matter that they had a threesome? Lots of people have threesomes. Why does it matter that they filmed it? Lots of people film it. Unless you have an extremely limited group of acquaintances, I can almost guarantee you know someone who's into threesomes and you almost definitely know someone who has filmed themselves having sex. It really has nothing to do with anything. They're all adults and I'm assuming they were all into it.

Why, though? Outside of some embarrassment nothing will happen to them. Might even help their careers. We've had leaked sex tapes for decades now, they are not nearly as big a deal as people make them out to be.

@cmblasko: @hunkulese: I said I don't care that they had a threesome(even though it's something I would never take part in), but yes, them being in the position they are, and choosing to film it, makes them look incredibly stupid to me. I'm not sitting over here saying I'll never watch them wrestle again, or I'm unsubbing from Xavier's youtube or some shit.

As for why I feel that way over it, that's not really something I want to get into, especially when the "why" of it doesn't really matter.

@metalbaofu: Well, what's the point of stating your opinion of someone is decreased because they filmed themselves having sex if you can't say why? Filming yourself having sex is a pretty normal thing for people to do these days, and it's really none of our business.

@hunkulese: It's really more their position than the actual filming of it, which I guess I didn't make clear. I couldn't care less what consenting adults choose to do.

I just think it's stupid for people in the public eye, especially in a business with so many children as fans, to film something like that. I don't see why filming it was worth the potential risk. Yeah, sure, I doubt anything major will come of it, but it's still a pointless thing to do to me. And comes off as a stupid/poor decision.

Thinking on it a bit more, saying my opinion of them has declined probably was a poor choice of words. It's really more that I just think it's a stupid/pointless/potentially risky thing for someone in their position to do.

Nono I'm just saying in this case, it's easy to see why it will turn out worse for Paige than Xavier, there's just so much more content and the video people think is Xavier is not 100% clear IMO

This just confirms that Ibushi should be in super sentai at some point, though if memory serves this story ends poorly for Nobunaga Oda.

If anyone is interested this weeks episode of Killing the Town is just an hour 15 of people talking about Bad News Brown who passed away 10 years ago this month.

So WWE just released the schedule of those Fan Axxess shows they run during Wrestlemania weekend. Shoutouts to them for just casually booking a PROGRESS show on Friday. The idea of seeing Jimmy Havoc in a WWE ring is totally bizarre.

I've been watching it on Hulu. It's a total 90 minutes there, and I just skip stuff I don't want to see. Raw is probably somewhere between 30 minutes and an hour for me.

NXT tonight was easily one of the best episodes in a long while. The Revival and DIY promos were great and got me excited for Takeover, Asuka's promo/overkill murderfest was great and a sorely needed progression in her character, and the Oney/Almas match was absolutely killer especially considering it was just kind of a match with minimal background beyond "they've had a couple matches in NXT at this point". Hopefully we can get more stuff like that in the future because tonight definitely felt like the NXT I've been missing for so, so long.
