What got me back into wrestling was the Survivor Series Deadly Games Tournament.

I once watched the Rise and Fall of ECW and The Self Destruction of the Ultimate Warrior with roommates who didn't watch wrestling and they loved both.

I knew there was something on the edge of my mind about Bruno :lol:

He was invited to stay for the Raw show that night, but declined because he did not want to be seen endorsing the product. He was told the main event was Chris Benoit vs. Triple H. He reportedly told them he would've stayed if Benoit was wrestling Kurt Angle; one of the people he said this to was Triple H, who he didn't know. This was also the same night of an incident with Ric Flair (see below). Contract talks stalled.

That ECW DVD is so sad.

Loved it until the whitewashed ending where Vince was Jesus.

You can get this one and the My Journey HBK DVD for $25 total brand new on Amazon, which means free shipping. A little bit a crossover with some of the matches but overall it's a lot of Shawn Michaels and Rockers matches. If you only want one, get the one I posted.

The Shawn Michaels vs British Bulldog match from KOTR 96 with Owen Hart on commentary is worth the price alone.

from the dirt sites

As noted earlier, Dolph Ziggler, AJ Lee and Big E Langston worked the dark main event after Monday night’s WWE RAW from Atlanta but did not appear on the live broadcast.

F4Wnonline.com reports that when the RAW script was changed around, WWE officials didn’t have a spot on this week’s show for Ziggler largely because they had other storylines they were pushing.


This might explain him losing to Cena, and mostly everyone else all the time

A. They don't know what to do with him or MITB yet because him winning will mess up bigger things...aka...he's not good enough yet

B. Someone higher up doesn't like him or he made someone mad enough that he is not getting the push yet and always loosing

C. A little bit of A & B

I think the plan for Ziggler is for him to cash in and win at Wrestlemania, to have him really steal the show.

So I broke down and watched bits and pieces of Impact last night. How in the world does TNA hope to compete with the WWE when their main storyline features one of the few (if not only) tag teams to have held the WWE, ECW, WCW, and TNA Tag Team Championships separated and in such shitty roles? I mean, I don't mind the fact that the Dudley Boyz are wrestling solo but Bully Ray is 41 years old and the story is that he married Brooke Hogan?! :shock: :roll: :smt011

Man, I wish that the Dudley Boyz would just go back to the WWE and dominate the tag team division one more time because they are being wasted in TNA.

I'm ok with Bully being one of their main guys. He's been very good. Sting and Hogan on the other hand. :roll:

Did you like the tag match, now those guys should be all over their tv too.

Oh I don't have a problem with Bubba being in the main event. In fact, I know that he had a few single matches with Kurt Angle and I seem to remember him having a short feud with Triple H in the WWE that all produced pretty entertaining matches at the time. My problem is wasting the talent of men like the Dudley Boyz on such mediocre stories. How did anybody at TNA think that a marriage story between Bubba and Brooke was a good idea? Devon's story could be so much better if he wasn't the only active big name in the stable. A feud between the Dudley Boyz should be rather epic but this just felt painful to watch.

Before his wedding story Bubba was probably the top heel in all companies. He can handle a singles run.

But that story is just bad.

Per the WON web site:

Some notes about the proposed WWE Network, and the fact they are really, at least this week, planning on rolling it out shortly, came up in a survey that DirecTV is doing.

The big news is not the content, which just confirms that has largely been expected, but that DirecTV is interested in carrying the channel.

The anchor of the network will be its carrying 11 out of the 12 WWE PPV shows per year, all but WrestleMania. What is a lock, whether it ends up financially prudent or not, is that this network will cannibalize the PPV business.

DirecTV's survey regarded asking people how much they would pay for such a network, with price points at $12.99, $14.99, $16.99, $19.99, $24.99 and $29.99. The survey asked people if they would buy it, and how much they would be willing to pay.

The network would contain network-specific reality shows involving current and past contracted wrestlers, shows that were formerly on WWE Classics on Demand like Legends Round Table, replays each week of Raw, Smackdown and other shows, and be augmented by the 30,000 hours of digitzed footage in the company's library of WWF, WCW, ECW, SMW, World Class, AWA, Florida, Stampede and other footage.

They would also re-do features that have been on Classics on Demand, including week-by-week showings of the Monday Night Wars.


Without PPV revenue, WWE could potentially face a mighty reckoning.
