WWE Global WarningEdit

You have broken the 3RR rule and you need to stop no matter what the reason is for your edits. The reality is this - the Corporate pages you are relying on are keyed to North America only. That's the way WWE worked in 2002, so of course any pay per view won't be mentioned simply because it wasn't shown in North America. But all six of my sources (and there are more to come soon hopefully) are not fan sites and further they are not unreliable. You need to find a reliable source that states that "Global Warning was not a pay per view event". WWE Corporate in this case is not good enough because independent sourcing contradicts it - or rather clears a grey area as the offical site doesn't make it clear either way. I strongly recommend that you leave this alone until you find the specified source with the quote I made (it doesn't need to be exact of course, but the message needs to be clear - omission of a statement is not enough). Curse of Fenric (talk) 12:49, 19 May 2015 (UTC)

  • Curse of Fenric WWE's press releases always mention whether or not a show is available on pay-per-view. Their press releases for Insurrextion and Rebellion mention they were on PPV, why would they not mention it for Global Warning? Also, if this was indeed a PPV, why is it not on the WWE Network? All of the UK PPVs are on the Network. Global Warning isn't. I have tons of sources mentioning that this was not a pay-per-view, but they're not reliable sources so I'm not going to print them. Of the reliable sources that I do have, in addition to WWECorporate, there's also TheHistoryOfWWE.com which makes note of every show that ever aired on PPV. No mention for Global Warning. ProWrestlingHistory.com is another site that mentions whether or not a show ever aired on PPV. No mention for Global Warning. I see that you're from Australia, so maybe you have a bias towards this show, I'm not sure, but unless you can show me an advertisement, a commercial, an event poster or any other sort of proof that this show aired on PPV, then there is no legit proof that this show aired on PPV. If you watch the show on DVD, there are no commentators seated at ringside. Tazz and Michael Cole did voiceovers later on back at the WWE TV studios. They never appear on camera once. Also, on the DVD there are only 6 matches shown. The live show had several additonal matches that are cut out. The reason is because Tazz & Cole did not do commentary for them. Even the Australian release of Global Warning did not include the complete show. Unfortunately, what has happened over the last 13 years is someone incorrectly posted that this show aired on PPV and since then it just spread as fact. And for many years Wikipedia has had that show listed on the WWE Pay-Per-Views list. So pretty much all of those sites that you listed as sources used Wikipedia as their reference for calling Global Warning a PPV. Anyone who was a fan back in 2002, like myself, who read all of the coverage online from fans who were there live the day Global Warning happened, remembers vividly that there was not one mention of this show airing on PPV. Do you know anyone in Australia who actually watched this show on PPV? And Fanatic Series doesn't count because those were pre-packaged "Best-Of" shows that WWE would run on PPV channels. They usually aired a condensed version of whatever home video release was popular at that time. Now before I go back and re-edit the Global Warning show, I'm getting all my ducks in row first. I have an e-mail out to Dave Meltzer and Bryan Alvarez of Wrestling Observer, as well as Mike Johnson of PWInsider asking to confirm on their respective sites that this show did not air on PPV. To be continued...OldSkool01 (talk) 13:59, 19 May 2015 (UTC)
Please move this to the talk page of Global Warning. That is procedure. Thanks. Curse of Fenric (talk) 22:04, 19 May 2015 (UTC)
  • Curse of Fenric Looks like the Global Warning page doesn't exist anymore. That's a shame. Oh well. There was nothing special about that show anyway. It wasn't a PPV nor was it on television. OldSkool01 (talk) 02:40, 21 May 2015 (UTC)

The article may have been deleted but the event still has a word-for-word photocopy on Professional wrestling in Australia. The fight over "pay-per-view" wording continues there. Curse of Fenric participated in Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/WWE Global Warning Tour (2nd nomination) in 2007 argued it was a PPV then, not much has changed apparently.LM2000 (talk) 05:32, 21 May 2015 (UTC)

I just want to also note that that article was deleted through AfD twice on the grounds that it was not a PPV. It has been deleted a handful of other times by PROD. The consensus formed on two separate occasions is that it is not a PPV. No reliable sourcing has since been provided to change this. I also think that its section currently on Professional wrestling in Australia is undue but that's a separate matter.LM2000 (talk) 07:33, 21 May 2015 (UTC)
  • I feel like I've been arguing for years that Global Warning did not belong on any PPV list. Right before the page was deleted I included a source from WrestlingObserver.com. It was from August 10, 2002 by a fan who was there live at the show and he specifically mentioned in the report that the show was not airing on PPV. I think I'll include that same source to the professional wrestling in Australia article. OldSkool01 (talk) 12:59, 21 May 2015 (UTC)
  • Good find! It's not going to get more reliable and cut-and-dry than that.LM2000 (talk) 17:29, 21 May 2015 (UTC)
On the contrary, it's just as much a fan report as the others I originally had and were torn down as unreliable. Besides, I can verify a number of inaccuracies in the report as I was there as much as this reporter was. The main reason for the deletion years ago due to lack of sources either way. We have those now and I am miffed that the article itself has been deleted, especially as it is a notable event anyway due to the attendance record it set at the time. But I digress. The reality is we have an impasse that can only be resolved by (a) Finding a source that expressly states that it was not shown on pay per view (b) Finding a TV guide from south east Asia that shows that it was shown. I tried to find a digital copy of the Straits Times, but it wouldn't let me access it. One assumes that Ten Sports would have shown it if it was shown, but I don't know how far Ten Sports went in 2002 beyond Singapore. Meanwhile - I'm going to edit Pro Wrestling in Australia with some neutral commentary (an IP has just reverted to my edit but at this point I don't think that helps) referencing the dispute to give both of us some time to sort this out. Curse of Fenric (talk) 23:16, 21 May 2015 (UTC)
Not when he's expressing a personal opinion, which he makes a habit of. OldSkool you had NO RIGHT to contact Dave as I said to you already. That's manipulation and detracts from it's reliability. Curse of Fenric (talk) 01:55, 22 May 2015 (UTC)
  • No right?! Who are you to tell me what my "rights" are? I asked a reliable source a direct question and he answered it on his site. How is that manipulation? I don't appreciate your attitude. You need to get over it and accept the facts that have been provided. I'm done with this. OldSkool01 (talk) 02:38, 22 May 2015 (UTC)
  • Meltzer is part wrestling historian, part commentator. Decisively saying the event was not a PPV is fact, not editorial commentary. The original Observer source OldSkool provided should have been good enough to end the debate, after you raised concerns OldSkool was well within their rights to ask the publisher for a clarification. We now have that clarification and I think it's time we respect the consensus achieved throughout the years at various AfDs and stop listing Global Warning as a PPV.LM2000 (talk) 05:24, 22 May 2015 (UTC)
  • LM2000 Over on the talk page of Professional wrestling in Australia I've added several other links that provide further evidence showing Global Warning did not air on PPV. I've had a ridiculously long back and forth debate with Curse Of Fenric, who refuses to believe that the show did not air on PPV. I think all of the evidence I provided is more than enough to finally end this debate.OldSkool01 (talk) 05:00, 28 May 2015 (UTC)
  • Looks like we have a troll over on the Professional wrestling in Australia page. Someone with no username and no sources or references changing Global Warning because he claims he saw it on PPV in VIETNAM of all places. OldSkool01 (talk) 13:40, 22 May 2015 (UTC)

Notice of Neutral point of view noticeboard discussionEdit

Hello, OldSkool01. This message is being sent to inform you that there currently is a discussion at Wikipedia:Neutral point of view/Noticeboard regarding an issue with which you may have been involved. Thank you.

Sir, please review WP:CIVIL particularly the part "Try not to get too intense." You have been bossy towards the other user on this noticeboard and you would be well advised to review your conduct. Ta. 101.160.23.40 (talk) 11:31, 3 June 2015 (UTC)

Hi. Excuse me if I'm a little confused, but at what point was I not being civil? I responded with exactly what was asked of me. I stated my case and I made it easier for the admins to read the entire debate in question and even provided links to said conversations. Also, the user who initiated this has been far more intense than I. If you go back and read the entire convo we've been having, he makes false accusations towards me and even resorts to name calling. I think I've been more than fair and calm with my responses. Also, why was my last reponse completely deleted? That response included some very important information for the admins to read. No reason to remove that comment.OldSkool01 (talk) 12:18, 3 June 2015 (UTC)

Yes there was because you were in violation of WP:CIVIL and I shall remove it again presently. Do not be a bully. Even out your words in a less volatile manner. Any provocation you claim is not relevant. He has been brief only and has stated his case and nothing more. Ta. 101.160.23.40 (talk) 13:03, 3 June 2015 (UTC)
I've reverted the IP's second deletion and warned them. Your post was fine. --NeilN talk to me 13:19, 3 June 2015 (UTC)

Thank you for catching that. He has been trying to put that poster on repeatedly, it is getting annoying you know?  MPJ-US  01:49, 31 August 2015 (UTC)

  •  MPJ-US He's also been putting up various custom fan-made posters on other TakeOver events as well. He doesn't seem to grasp the rules of what posters are accepted and which ones are not. He's probably gonna think I'm picking on him, but I'm not. I'm just trying to make it clear to him. OldSkool01 (talk) 15:59, 31 August 2015 (UTC)

List of WWE pay-per-view eventsEdit

Here's why I made the changes I did.

  1. Removing links to well-known locations, such as New York City. (see Wikipedia:Manual_of_Style/Linking#What_generally_should_not_be_linked).
  2. Avoiding state abbreviations (see Wikipedia:Manual_of_Style/Abbreviations#Special_considerations)
  3. Fixing (simplifying) links to venues:
The names of venues tend to change because of sponsorship deals with naming rights. A redirect provides a simple way to ensure that all links to an old name will go to the article under the current name. Piping an old name to the current name is pointless because if the name changes again, as it surely will when the current sponsorship deal comes to an end, the piped name will itself become a redirect and the already trivial benefit of a direct link will be lost. This has already happened in several cases - for example [[Baltimore Arena|1st Mariner Arena]] simply pipes the name to another name which has since been superseded, and is now itself a redirect.

Here are some relevant extracts from guides to best practice in piping and redirects:

  1. From Wikipedia:Piped_link#When_not_to_use:
  • It is generally not good practice to pipe links simply to avoid redirects. The number of links to a redirect page can be a useful gauge of when it would be helpful to spin off a subtopic of an article into its own page.
  • Introducing unnecessary invisible text makes the article more difficult to read in page source form.
  • Non-piped links make better use of the "what links here" tool, making it easier to track how articles are linked and helping with large-scale changes to links.
  1. From Wikipedia:Redirect#Do_not_.22fix.22_links_to_redirects_that_are_not_broken:
  • There is usually nothing wrong with linking to redirects to articles. Some editors are tempted, upon finding a link to a redirect page, to bypass the redirect and point the link directly at the target page. While there are a limited number of cases where this is beneficial, there is otherwise no good reason to pipe links solely to avoid redirects. Doing so is generally an unhelpful, time-wasting exercise that can actually be detrimental. It is almost never helpful to replace [[redirect]] with [[target|redirect]].

Colonies Chris (talk) 10:19, 19 May 2016 (UTC)

Colonies Chris That's all well and good, but you did such a haphazard job. Some locations include city and state, some only include the city, some cities are linked, others are not. The general consensus has always been to have a uniform look. And both city and state should be included. If doing away with abbreviations is a big deal, then no problem. I can go along with full names. But now you've given me a ton of work to do. I'm keeping the full names, but every location will include both city and state. OldSkool01 (talk) 18:04, 19 May 2016 (UTC)
It was agreed some time ago that certain major cities don't need the state - for example, New York City, Seattle, Los Angeles, Chicago, etc., and those articles were changed to remove the state from the article title. There's no benefit to specifying the state when it's neither necessary nor helpful. And major internationally known cities don't need linking either. Nobody's going to wonder 'New York City, whereabouts is that?' and click the link to find out. Colonies Chris (talk) 18:16, 19 May 2016 (UTC)
It's not about that. It's about this particular page, and this particular list, having a uniform neat look. It's been like this for years and no one has ever complained about it. There was a discussion about this years ago. How other pages decide to list cities is up to those specific pages. It doesn't have to be uniform across all of Wikipedia. Each page is different. OldSkool01 (talk) 15:09, 20 May 2016 (UTC)

May 2016Edit

  Hello, I'm JCRules. I noticed that you made a change to an article, NXT TakeOver (2016), but you didn't provide a reliable source. It's been removed and archived in the page history for now, but if you'd like to include a citation and re-add it, please do so! If you need guidance on referencing, please see the referencing for beginners tutorial, or if you think I made a mistake, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you. JC · Talk · Contributions 03:05, 26 May 2016 (UTC)

JCRules, you jumped the gun there, didn't you? There was no need for you to make any changes in the first place because there were already links proving the name of the event(the link next to the Aries vs Nakamura match being one of them). That's why I made the changes that I did. If you looked at the edit history of that page you'll notice that I've been very strong on enforcing that people provide verified sources confirming the name of the event. Why would I then make changes myself without doing the same thing? OldSkool01 (talk) 05:42, 26 May 2016 (UTC)

Regarding your moveEdit

Hi, when moving pages, please make sure there are no Requested Moves open at the time. One of your moves which you did on 13 June 2016 at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn (2016) ended up in a discussion being almost worthless. Please double check before moving pages, thanks. Anarchyte (work | talk) 07:15, 22 June 2016 (UTC)

Hi. I did see the requested moves discussion, but once the new official title of the event was confirmed there was no need to go further with the discussion. As you said, continuing the discussion was pointless. OldSkool01 (talk) 14:54, 22 June 2016 (UTC)

User:Sceptre and List of WWE pay-per-view eventsEdit

User:Sceptre had requested and granted full page protection on List of WWE pay-per-view events because he believes that PWInsider isn't reliable and wants proof from Sky Italia and WWE themselves that the shows are going to happen. The user is just grasping for straws.--Keith Okamoto (talk) 20:24, 27 June 2016 (UTC)

So one person makes a request and gets an instant full protection? Smells fishy to me. And looking at the edit history page, the full protection was made minutes after Sceptre made their last edit. Definitely something unethical going on. No way does a page get full protected based on one person not considering a particular website a verifiable source. This needs to be looked into. OldSkool01 (talk) 21:27, 27 June 2016 (UTC)
Look on Wikipedia:Reliable sources/Noticeboard, they're saying PWInsider fails reliability.--Keith Okamoto (talk) 21:59, 27 June 2016 (UTC)

SummerSlam 2016Edit

Don't remove Rusev vs. Roman Reigns from the match listing. It never officially started thus should be noted as such on the match listings. Mr. C.C.Hey yo!I didn't do it! 20:51, 25 August 2016 (UTC)

Survivor SeriesEdit

I don't see how you can make the claim that your edits on Survivor Series were done for consistency. You appear to have made the change on the majority of the articles, which means you took it farther away from its previous consistency. "Traditional" is meaningless to casual readers, so 4-on-4 makes much more sense. GaryColemanFan (talk) 01:16, 19 November 2016 (UTC)

"Traditional" is what WWE has been calling it forever. Anyone can see how many participants are in the match just by looking at the match results. It's not like a battle royal or Royal Rumble where you have 20-30 guys and need to count them all. But if you want to compromise, how does "5-on-5 traditional Survivor Series elimination match" sound? We keep both versions. OldSkool01 (talk) 01:42, 19 November 2016 (UTC)
When I watched wrestling, they never used the word "traditional". GaryColemanFan (talk) 04:58, 19 November 2016 (UTC)
The first time I remember these matches being referred to as traditional Survivor Series matches was in 1992. On commentary they referred to them as such. And from 1989 they called Survivor Series itself the "Thanksgiving Night Tradition". In the early 2000's they referred to the matches as "Classic" Survivor Series matches. And for the last decade or so they've pushed hard the "traditional" name. Even the on-screen graphics have been using that term. OldSkool01 (talk) 08:20, 19 November 2016 (UTC)

STOP ALREADY!Edit

Stop adding those matches to Roadblock: End of the Line, NOTHING is official yet. Just because their (PPG Paints Arena) Twitter and Facebook Accounts announced it doesn't make it official (Hell it's not even on their site). I'm going to keep undoing your edit until it is official by WWE themselves. ForrestFuller (talk) 06:10, 25 November 2016 (UTC)

This article isn't worth arguing over. Especially since those matches will "officially" be announced in 3 days. However, the fact that you broke several WP guideline rules, including removal of verified sources as well as blatant 3R edits, not to mention your language in the edits and your message to me showing your intention to continually edit war, I could have easily reported you. I had way more than enough evidence against you. But like I said, those matches will be announced on Raw Monday, so this article isn't worth it. In the future please show a little more respect to the other editors and learn more about WP's guidelines as far as what is and what isn't allowed. Thank you.

Nxt takeover OrlandoEdit

Change nxt takeover Orlando to march 30th due to the hall of fame on the 1st Billlangan133 (talk) 01:11, 6 December 2016 (UTC)

What are you talking about? The Hall Of Fame is on Friday March 31st. TakeOver is on Saturday April 1st. Why would I move TakeOver to Thursday March 30th? OldSkool01 (talk) 02:29, 6 December 2016 (UTC)

Editing while logged outEdit

You've done a fair amount of editing while logged out. That's not in itself abusive, but it can make people think that you are trying to appear as two separate people. This is problematic when doing reverts. To avoid any appearance of impropriety, please be extra careful to always do your edits (and very, very particularly, always do your reverts) while signed in. --Yamla (talk) 20:07, 7 January 2017 (UTC)

Hi. I'm very careful to not make any edits on WP when I'm not logged in. In fact, I'm just about always logged in. Where exactly did I make these edits you are referring to? OldSkool01 (talk) 20:21, 7 January 2017 (UTC)
I'm referring to these edits: Special:Contributions/176.36.57.234. --Yamla (talk) 12:26, 8 January 2017 (UTC)
Well then you're talking to the wrong guy. A simple IP lookup shows that this editor is located in the Ukraine. I'm in New York City. Use iplocation.net. Furthermore it looks like this user literally copy and pasted my edit note from an edit I made on this page on January 5th: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=NXT_Tag_Team_Championship&action=history. That's probably the reason why you're accusing me of this. OldSkool01 (talk) 14:05, 8 January 2017 (UTC)
Oh! My apologies. I'll hard-block that IP address for impersonation, then. --Yamla (talk) 14:33, 8 January 2017 (UTC)
No problem at all. Honestly, I don't know why WP even allows anonymous IPs to post at all. It's not that hard to create a username. OldSkool01 (talk) 15:00, 8 January 2017 (UTC)

I'm guessing you're referring to the main event debate. Here you go: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:List_of_WWE_pay-per-view_events/Archive_2#No_Mercy_Main_Event OldSkool01 (talk) 22:24, 6 March 2017 (UTC)

New ppvEdit

Name has to have WWE in it or it will get linked to Great Balls of Fire Chris "WarMachineWildThing" Talk to me 16:18, 28 April 2017 (UTC)

That's why I removed the links. No need to have a red link until the page is created. OldSkool01 (talk) 16:21, 28 April 2017 (UTC)
You were saying?? That's why I put WWE on the front because hey IPs do exactly what I said they'd do. Chris "WarMachineWildThing" Talk to me 16:28, 28 April 2017 (UTC)
That's why there's an undo button. IP's mess up these WP pages all the time. Nothing new. OldSkool01 (talk) 18:56, 28 April 2017 (UTC)

WWE PPVEdit

  WWE PPV
You should include here Roadblock (March 2016).

Maybe it was a network special but it was more promoted than Beast in the East and Live from MSG, and unlike those two events, Roadblock name was at every RAW stage before the event. Tombstoneride (talk) 18:37, 11 May 2017 (UTC)

Roadblock from March 2016 is included on the List of WWE Network events page. There are two seperate pages. One for shows that only aired on PPV and one for shows that aired on PPV AND the WWE Network. Roadblock from March 2016 did not air on PPV therefore it does not go on the List of WWE Pay-Per-View events page. OldSkool01 (talk) 20:07, 11 May 2017 (UTC)

WWE PPVEdit

  WWE PPV
And also include The Big Event and Royal Rumble 1988.

I know those events were not originally PPV events, but WWE Network has added them to their pay-per-view list. Tombstoneride (talk) 18:39, 11 May 2017 (UTC)

It doesn't matter what the WWE Network does or doesn't include in their PPV section. Bottom line is The Big Event and Royal Rumble '88 did not air on PPV at all. So it doesn't belong on the List of WWE Pay-Per-View events page. OldSkool01 (talk) 20:09, 11 May 2017 (UTC)


WWE Extreme Rules 2009Edit

Hi, I noticed that you reverted the article List of WWE pay-per-view events
But unfortunately you have written wrong because the main event was announced between Jeff Hardy and Edge and at the end of the match, CM Punk cashed-in his Money In The Bank with a match that was not announced before the event see
I hope I have been able to understand you and thank you
Yazan Kanbar (talk) 16:32, 20 May 2017 (UTC)

Hi. On the List of WWE pay-per-view events and List of WWE Network events pages, we always go by the final match on the show as the main event, even if that match was not the most heavily advertised match leading into the event. That includes all PPVs where a last minute match took place, such as Money in The Bank cash-ins. There was a long discussion about this last year and the consensus was to always go with the final match. OldSkool01 (talk) 17:15, 20 May 2017 (UTC)

WWE Pay Per View InformationEdit

I have noticed that your information on the most pay-per-view matches is coming from an unreliable source. The site that is tracking that information is not going by the information on Wikipedia from past WWE events but instead by their own preferences. I have kept track of this information myself, starting with the first PPV (WrestleMania). I've kept track of every Superstar's win:Loss record through last night's Survivor Series event and can provide you with the correct information, as chronicled on Wikipedia. Thanks for your time! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Adamtox31 (talkcontribs) 00:08, 21 November 2017 (UTC)

  • Perhaps your information is correct, but it’s still your own original research, which is unfortunately not allowed on Wikipedia. IWDB is used all over Wikipedia as a source and unless you can find a more reliable source, then that’s the most accurate website where that information is listed.

WweukEdit

WWE United Kingdom Championship Tournament 2 has been officially announced. I have included it in the List of WWE Network events with source. Can you please check that everything is alright? And please don't reply with a huge essay like you did in other talks. TheBiz (talk) 07:21, 14 April 2018 (UTC)

The dates have been confirmed, but nowhere in your source does it mention airing on the WWE Network. With that said, there was a commercial over WrestleMania weekend advertising a “UK King Of The Ring” special coming up, which is most likely this same event, even though your source doesn’t mention King Of The Ring either. We’ll leave it on the list for now, pending any further announcements. Also I removed the link you made since that link leads to the page for last year’s UK Tournament.

Illegal IP revertsEdit

Just want to thank you for reverting the unsourced junk on the List of WWE pay per view events. That IP range is also vandalising other pages, insisting on including a promotional link in a draft for Pro Wrestling Australia, insisting on adding Pro Wrestling Australia to the List of professional wrestling organisations in Australia against the rules of such lists and doing the same to the Pro Wrestling in Australia template (as well as claiming Pro Wrestling Women's Alliance is still active when they haven't held a show since 2013). Could you help keep an eye on this? I can't always be here to revert this rubbish. The page links are on the IP's contributions list. Or you can look at mine where the correct versions are found. 2001:8003:58A3:6C01:FCA7:DF6A:884F:C568 (talk) 20:09, 18 November 2019 (UTC)

And the reason you "can't always revert" is because you get blocked a lot. Mainly for this sort of non-sense. 2601:983:827F:DF50:F481:9FA5:DF0:7398 (talk)

Bothered by WWE inconsistencyEdit

I noticed that WWE's inconsistency bothers you almost as much as it does me. I got some of their errors fixed by contacting them on reddit and Twitter. Are you interested in getting more errors fixed?WrestlingLegendAS (talk) 00:21, 12 December 2019 (UTC)

WrestlingLegendAS, there’s a ton. The biggest ones are the inaccurate number of days on title reigns. Go look at most “List of [fill in the blank]] Champions”. There’s plenty of reigns where WWE recognizes 1 week title reigns as only 6 days or sometimes 8 days. And I’m not talking about instances where WWE waited for a taped match to air on TV before recognizing the change. I’m talking about changes, for example, where a new champion is crowned live on Raw and then that champion would lose the title exactly a week later on the next live Raw, which is 7 days, but for some reason WWE will count it as either 6 days or 8 days. There’s a bunch of inconsistencies like that. Too many to list. OldSkool01 (talk) 03:03, 13 December 2019 (UTC)
