FYI - I said this before, but I guess it was missed.  We are NEVER making Enzo (with or without Cass) any more than we're supporting Benoit any further than he was.  Sorry, we have standards, and real world crimes don't sit well with us.
So does this mean Adam Rose is cancelled? Because didn’t he beat a woman or something?

Sorry to hijack the thread here, but this pisses me off.  He very much did NOT beat a woman.  Check your facts, please, and don't spread bad information about people.  It's not very nice, any more than you'd like rumors started about you that you're a child molester or some other horrible thing.

Short version - during a heated argument with yelling, his wife freaked and grabbed the phone to call the police, he took the phone away.  Technically under Florida law, that's 'interfering with contacting law enforcement' or something like that, which is a felony.  (EDIT:  "Witness tampering" is the official charge)  Both sides agree he didn't hit or otherwise harm her physically. It's too bad the dirt sheets went for the 'big headline' of domestic violence rather than reporting the facts correctly, then people in the made assumptions and jumped to conclusions, and now his career is over.

But yeah, apples and oranges.  End rant, lol.

.....

Back on topic, confirming what Eric said, they'll have two names to confirm tomorrow.  :)

I'll confirm he is not in Virtual 9.  However, I'm thinking our Holiday Set this Xmas could be 205 Live, and he would be good for that.

Sadly, he didn't do much in his WWE time (between injuries and such) but he's one of those guys who should get made because we're able.  Much like when they got Goldberg in during Divas Overload, despite his WWE time/accomplishments being limited - while Aries isn't on the same scale, I'm sure the point is clear, heh.

Don't want to offend you Creed, but speaking of Enzo and check your facts. The police doesn't longer determines against him as there are not enough evidence. Never judge a man until he's proven guilty.
It's pretty sad he will not make it into RD because he was a great entertainer. But I understand and respect your point.

Understood.  Agreed that he was great on the mic, even if he wasn't good in the ring, heh.

Totally agree with you on that. But some big names are not good in the ring, too.  ;)

For example ultimate warrior was a horrible wrestler but he was an amazing showman. My opinion of course.

Warrior was a really bad wrestler. But he simply had IT. I loved him as a child and to this day he's still my all-time fave besides Edge, because he was the reason I began to watch Wrestling in 1990. I remember that my parents always allowed me to stay up and let me watch WWF because I wanted to see the Warrior.

After the terrific match put out by Ronda Rousey vs Nia Jax I am so looking forward to her inclusion to VRD.  Hope Creed will do her justice!

And Ronda's WM match was way better than I expected!  There's people ahead of her in line already, but I'm definitely interested in getting her into the game.  :)

Maybe by the holiday set she will have a few more matches and could get a modestly size card pool with enough to work with.

I swear this isn’t to upset: now that Enzo wasn’t guilty and big cass was released? Any hope?

I would Imagine the crew put them like they do the Human Oddities and that they weren't around long enough or did anything truly important to warrant their inclusion.

Still doesn't mean we can't raise our voices; I still want my Oddities.

Last time the same couple people pushed for the Oddities, there was a poll in Discord about putting them in.  The people voted 2-to-1 against it.

Just sayin'.

But really that's a different case, as they could be made without any moral objections, but their priority is fairly low.  If the game lasts long enough to do more 'nostalgia' stuff, it's not impossible, but there's SO much new talent coming in to catch up to.

That poll is actually 7-6, 6 in favor. Also a 4-0 poll in favor of more disruption in the pre.

So still more against than for, from when I glanced at it last.  Point stands though.

Didn’t realize there was any kind of demand for the Oddities. I wouldn’t be opposed to them but cant see them ever being done. There’s just so many new stars and even they go back to the nostalgia well there’s still plenty of bigger names that would be done before them.
