Yea I heard that too. This is just the original HF - Bret, Jim & Jimmy Hart, no Dangerous Danny though. Shame it's not the Hart Foundation stable. I actually thought Brian was in the HOF as they put the DVD set out in 2008 but nope, he's not in yet. Apparently the HOF is lower priority now, which is why no ones been mentioned yet I guess.

It's looking like he may have left WWE. He removed all references to them from his social media and is taking outside bookings for the first time. Which is weird to be doing before Wrestlemania if he still worked there.

It's interesting that when Ronda came in the plan was to redo the Austin vs McMahon feud with her with Stephanie in Vince's role. Now they've given that angle to Becky Lynch. That's smart on their part since Becky is the most over wrestler they have. But it's kind of admitting Ronda didn't work out like they thought.

Yea most likely because Rondas not the best promo. Her matches have been on the whole top notch but I do think a more intense Ronda Rousey going up against Steph would have been money if she was a better talker. But even when she debuted pointing at the Mania sign that wasn't the way to bring her in.

She should have interrupted the match, KO'd one wrestler and put the armbar on another and had security have to escort her out of the ring. Because although she lost a couple UFC fights, she's still a legit badass and I don't think WWE are putting that across. Ronda seems "too nice" if that makes sense. In theory her and Brock should be the #1 heels on the roster since they have the credentials to back it up.

You're right, I was suggesting they should do a Heyman managed stable with Brock, Ronda, Matt Riddle and maybe even sign Filthy Tom. But in Vince's insane mind, if he did that he would be saying UFC is better than WWE. He can have two people who happen to be UFC Fighters be champions. But if you make it into a nWo style angle then to Vince, as stupid as it is, he thinks he's admitting WWE is inferior. Which is why even with Nexus when everyone but Daniel Bryan was unknown to most people, he still had to have the established WWE guys beat them repeatedly and never give them much of a big win. Which is why The Elite is elsewhere right now, because they'd be treated the same. "Goddamn, pal. I can't have Stardust, some white guy who lives in Japan and those indy guys beat my precious Baron."

Yea very good point. Which is why the Invasion didn't work and the relaunched ECW didn't either because it would something other than WWF/WWE.

Fighting With My Family is at 90% Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/fighti ... _my_family

Dwayne needs to go and lay the Smackdown on the people who made their advertising, because every single ad for the past year has made this look like it's a bad movie. And if movie critics, who hate wrestling movies besides Beyond The Mat, like it then it must be a great film. But the ads are only going to get WWE fans who support everything they do to see it. When it sounds like it's a movie non-fans will really like.

Yea the doc its based on was very good.



I'm assuming having Stephen Merchant write it and a solid cast is helping too. Plus it's a story everyone can get behind of the underdog who got to live their dream.

Shame Paige had to endure that phone hack garbage etc and had to retire because of injury. Because this could have given her a gigantic push, where she becomes a mainstream celeb outside of WWE. But she still will likely benefit from it in a positive way anyway and give her opportunities away from WWE.

He left WWE because his sister died and he was the only one who could raise her children apparently. He had money from the NFL and wrestling plus owned a personal training business so just decided not to go back. I'm sure not being used right for years also influenced his decision. He was ready to be TNA's top guy in 2005 and they blew it with a stupid heel turn. He could have been their Goldberg. And then he goes to WWE and is just a tag guy in ECW mainly.

OK thanks, sad to hear his sister passed. Yea he was very over in TNA. Monty said on his Twitter he wasn't coming back to the ring anytime soon.
