Sad loss on the Brain - the best manager ever.

In other news - someone took a bookie to the cleaners after Summerslam last month

It looks like one person might have ruined gambling on pro wrestling for everyone. According to the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, somebody who gets the WWE finishes made a killing at SummerSlam, so gambling sites are considering dropping WWE.

Dave Meltzer wrote that there wasn't enough smart money in time for betting sites to adjust the line. Also, none of the finishes were changed at the last minute, so someone with inside knowledge can easily get all the finishes correct.

"He did a $3.36 parlay on ten matches, all of which he got right, and won $45,600," Meltzer wrote. "That was a key thing where I mentioned after the show that a lot of the gambling sites were considering dropping WWE because insiders that knew could make a lot of money and that level money was ridiculous. The company that got hammered hasn't done parlays in a long time, and won't be doing them again."

45k is hardly gonna break the bank for a bookies, surely if they are running odds they also would have a line on the insider knowledge and adjust their prices accordingly with always the chances of the last minute change of plan or the properly held secret.

Glad Flair pulled through. There’s enough depressing shît coming from America this year without the GoAT passing away too.
