With ratings tanking and no new stars on the horizon its a good chance he might get another shot. I dont think he burned as many bridges as his brother.

Re: General Pro Wrestling News and Discussion Thread Part Deux!

I'm not even taking burnt bridges into account. He has TWO strikes in WWE. That may not mean anything in TNA, but if WWE wants to appear in the public eye to be taking the health and wellness of their talent seriously, they have no business resigning him and putting him in a position where they'd be setting him up for failure.

I don't recall every seeing Hardy take responsibility for his drug use. He claims to be clean at this point (last I checked), but he's claimed being clean and sober many times before. The guy is (unfortunately) a role-model and he regularly falls back into demonstrating how to be an addict.

If WWE is serious about who their fanbase is and really interested in being seen as the positive influence that it pretends to be when Linda is running for public office, they have no business resigning a guy who shows up to work drunk and or high. The last time they dealt with his drugs abuse in an angle Jeff was the FACE of the program. I mean, really?

Re: General Pro Wrestling News and Discussion Thread Part Deux!

I think the interview made it clear that Jeff is resigning with TNA. He cites WWE's policy for exploring things outside the company as one of those reasons (he wants to pursue his music career). I think there would be a better chance of seeing Kurt return than Jeff anyway.


Hogan's funny. I didn't know Sting rumours had started up again.

IMO the WWE has plenty of potential stars on the horizon (Sandow, Rhodes, Cesaro, Miz, Kofi, and Ziggler come immediately to mind). They've just been too chickenshit to actually elevate these guys beyond mid-card status for some inexplicable reason, choosing to cram a crappy character like Ryback down our throats instead.

Of all the former-WWE big names (well, those who made a name for themselves in WWE anyway) that are currently under contract to TNA, I'd rate their chances of returning to WWE within the next 2 years as so:

Rob Van Dam 6/1
Mr Anderson 8/1
Kurt Angle 10/1
Jeff Hardy 10/1
Mickie James 12/1
Hulk Hogan 16/1
D'Angelo Dinero (Elijah Burke) 16/1
Chavo Guerrero 18/1
Bully Ray 20/1
Devon 20/1
Tara 50/1
Matt Morgan 50/1
Gail Kim 100/1

Would love to see Bully Ray back in the WWE, he has never been better in his entire career than he is right now. Van Dam is done no need to return him to the big stage.

Re: General Pro Wrestling News and Discussion Thread Part Deux!

So Survivor Series predictions for tonight (not going to watch since I'll be out of the house tonight) and honestly don't care much but here goes:

-Heath Slater, Jinder Mahal and Drew McIntyre Vs Tyson Kidd and Justin Gabriel.

Winners: Kidd and Gabriel

-Big Show (c) Vs Sheamus (World Heavyweight Champion Match)

Winner: Big Show

-Eve (c) Vs Kaitlyn (Divas Championship)

Winner: Eve

-Antonio Ceasro (c) Vs R Truth (United States Championship)

Winner: R-Truth

-CM Punk (c) Vs Ryback Vs John Cena (Triple Threat Match For WWE Championship)

Winner: CM Punk

-Team Foley (The Miz, Kofi Kingston, Team Hell No, and Randy Orton) Vs Team Ziggler ( Dolph Ziggler, Team Rhodes Scholars, Wade Barrett, and Alberto Del Rio)

Winners: Team Folely

Keep in mind that I've not been watching much at all. These are really just whim picks.

Well I survived the Survivor series. Some good matches in there but the crowd was just dead most of the night. Liked Show/Sheamus, and the two classic matches. The Triple threat again had to find a unique way to take out Ryback and it did, but do we really want Rock/Punk in January?

Fucking pish. Both world title matches have stupid endings. The SS match was ok, though the ending was this completely recycled: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fLwNTI2Cam4
I knew how it would end soon as Orton started going for his kunt pick.

Re: General Pro Wrestling News and Discussion Thread Part Deux!

I'm still watching, yeah, but I find myself opting to live in the past more and more.

I doubt I'll ever completely abandon wrestling fandom, but I'm certainly not as enthusiastic as I used to be. I can't decide if that's the business's fault, my fault for not moving with the times, a combination of these things, or just the fact that wrestling in general probably isn't as exciting to me as it was in my youth.

Can't say my enthusiasm's that high on the whole either.
