That's been my take. I think he just can't admit that his theory never came true (or maybe never was true to begin with). I sort of get how he is like a Pro Wrestling 101 for non-fans and perhaps he should stick to that (his Dead Wrestler bios for Deadspin were what brought him attention in the first place). Actually, Grantland as a whole does a lot better analyzing the past than looking towards the future.
If you want to show off your trivia knowledge, could you just ALSO post the answer with your question? I hate drawing out threads pointlessly. Besides, you end up leaving out an answer (Samu) which means I have to clean up your mess. Ta da.
