The homie Chris Bey is competing for the Impact title???
fukk... I gotta watch that night.
Only promotion that made black wrestlers look like stars, only for them to look like blundering idiots elsewhere
Since Day 1 . The only misses they ever had were taking too long to put the strap on Monty Brown and the Pope and maybe not finding a role for Creed before he left for the WWE.
Even then 2 of those 3 had their best runs in TNA/Impact.
They even had Kenny King swagged out in the Beat Down Clan .
Chris Bey’s come up has been good to see
did we forget about their response to the tessa blanchard shyt already?
if only impact thought the same thing instead of making her the first ever female world champ in the midst of her being exposed as a racist
I hope you don't watch any other wrestling promotions
the coli's favorite response to companies getting called out is "bbbut other companies do it too"
I'm not the one making threads praising any companies for their "showcase" of black talent either way because I already know what it is.. you can enjoy whatever company you want but lets not act like any of them are progressive or deserve props given their history
Breh, if I had a quarter for every scumbag that the WWE put the belt on from racist to murderer, I would have enough to pay everybody's debt on The Coli
see above response
dont forget they made ron killings the heavyweight champ too when they had the nwa belt
sucks it took a pandemic and no crowd for shyt like this happen
Nah not at all. But I also don't think things go down the same way if Tessa was a guy and if Moose and Kiera don't come out defending her. I wasn't a fan of Impact putting the belt on Tessa, I even drew up and posted a way to get Rich to take her place and take the belt off Callihan to build to a Rich Swann/Willie Mack feud in the Tessa thread here. COVID rendered Tessa's reign irrelevant though and she's unemployed so she got what she deserved at the end of the day. Also that first female world champ shyt isn't even true Sexy Star won the Lucha Underground Championship .
Virtually nobody claimed Impact was some super progressive company either we've all just acknowledged that they've given black talent the ball when other companies wouldn't and they've consistently booked black talent in ways where they weren't flat out minstrel show characters. We can speculate on the reasons why they've done that (them being progressive and all that) but at the end of the day they've done it .
But whilst you're here breh please answer the question in the title and tell us which top wrestling company has given black talent a fairer shake than TNA/Impact have since they've been around so we can go support them? We can sit here and point out how they mismanaged the Tessa Blanchard situation but exactly where are black wrestling fans supposed to go and shouldn't we acknowledge it when we see our own doing well? Or are we just supposed to stay mad until there's a black owned wrestling company that's on a black owned TV network where the network owner has gone above and beyond to prove that they're not a c00n?
Show us the way.
It's been happening over there though.
Didn't forget breh that's why I said since Day 1 and they gave it to The Truth twice too so you knew they meant it
