The Hart Foundation interview, Jim doesn't look good, he have Parkinson's? or is he just tweaked, I haven't been keeping up (i don't think he was in character), not trying to be funny,

I saw Jim in Calgary this May and he seemed fine... nothing like in this video... :-(

I'm currently reading Hall of Fame: Heels by Greg Oliver and company. Fantastic book. I'd give it a hearty recommendation as it gives some real insight to guys you might not have heard of or know anything about. My favorite bit so far was the section of Johnny Valentine.

Greg Oliver's books are all great. My favourite is the one on Tag-Teams. :)

Also can't recommend Blood Red Turns Dollar Green enough. As far as works of literature go, probably not going to top ten any "Greatest of"-lists. But as far as fictional novels about pro wrestling, it's definitely #1. It follows the story of a promoter and his driver through a turbulent decade of business that was the 70s. And when it gets to the end and you start to piece together just what the promoter is doing? It's a whole other level of awesome.

Anybody else watching RAW tonight? I have been on and off and I just saw Cody Rhodes lose a match to Orton and then HHH came out and fired Cody :smt102 I am sure that it is total angle driven firing but is there some reason why Cody would need to be taking time off right now? Seemed like he was on the cusp of having a really nice face run and with Cena and Sheamus on the shelf Punk and Bryan seem to be the only other faces getting any time right now.

I knew if anyone had read them it would be you. I figured you for the Canadians book, though! :-D

seems weird unless they are giving him time off for the honeymoom, but I got a bad feeling he is coming back as a goldust variant or something, hope not

On another note, I understand Big Show has been around a while, and there is only so much to do with him, but this 6 months of angry i don't give a crap monster followed by 6 months of crying spineless idiot that have him doing all the time is getting old, at least keep him in character (whatever character longer than 6 months)

Cody's getting married to his incredibly hot wife IRL and is taking a few weeks of for the honeymoon

His post firing promo was money. I'd love a Rhodes vs McMahons storyline

Agreed, everything he has been doing has been awful this past couple weeks and it doesn't make sense . Escpecially considering how much he hated Daniel Bryan for taking this title from him in 45 seconds. I kept expecting that to play into everything last night and have Show obliterate Bryan and give that reason as to why.

Seems like taking him out with an injury angle would have been better than firing him. I mean if he is only gonna be gone for a couple weeks who is going to bring him back into the company? There is anyone else with the power to to so right now with all the McMahons united like this. I would love to see Dusty and Dustin come back to join Cody against the McMahons, that could be awesome.

The only McMahon not accounted for is Shane who is out of the company of course, I don't think Linda will do anything with her political aspirations

The only thing I can see is the board naming someone (Ric Flair or even better Stone Cold)

Or like I said earlier Cody coming back in a disguise

His dad did the come-back-in-a-mask gimmick at least once, that could be fun. Of course, Cody's physique is pretty unique, so it wouldn't work at all, not that it stopped Andre or Hulk. Just sayin'.

SWEET BABY KONG, I DEMAND THE MASK HAVE A MUSTACHE!

In fact, his name should be MIL MUSTACHIO.
