I think you will see Bruno before Randy Savage inducted.
And we all know that's not going to happen.


Well, Bruno is being inducted this year. So perhaps there is still hope for Savage. My shock is much, I never thought Bruno would give in

Well, Vince has tried to induct him long before now, but he continually turned him down. Maybe he realized the induction is a tribute to his accomplishments, something more important than his feelings about Vince.

It's says a lot when ESPN broke and reported on the story

Thought of the day. Would much prefer a Brock/Ryback match at WM, with Brock doing the job. Le Sigh, I think we may be getting Brock/HHH all over again though. I would find the Original 'Next Big Thing' vs The New 'Next Big Thing' angle much more enticing (if built correctly, which is always hit or miss), as to another HHH Angle.

Just attended a WWE Smackdown house show at East Carolina University Feb, 2
Ive never liked going to a non televised event, but now they have a set with video screens behind the stage. Just like a tv event except no pyro. They even had the opening of smackdown like on tv. Great matches, more personal feel to the show.

Yes that was him.I don't know why he can't be dirty dutch mantell.Swagger really needs a manager so it should be a good fit.Hopefully they don't tune down his character too much.

Might be the wrong kind of wrestling than the kind the OP had in mind, but thought it might be of interest. Wrestling will be dropped from the Olympics in 2020.

Bruno Sammartino recently stated that he’ll receive $5000 and a WWE Hall of Fame ring for accepting the company’s invitation to be inducted. There are also plans for Bruno and WWE to work together on future projects that should pay him handsomely.

I can't imagine what kind of project Bruno could "work together" on with Vince given their history.

I was surprised with their history he agreed to go into the hall of fame.But he has to be in for it to be remotely taken serious.The question is does his speech make the usa broadcast with Trish Stratus and Mick Foley going in?Why put Bruno and Backlund in the same year?The two greatest champions in WWF history both going in at MSG where they were big draws.

I think, that, should be intresting. Hmm. Wow. I think Trish doesn't get the face time, tbh. If anything, it should be Bruno and Foley.

Well, I i'm sure the put together another DVD. They did one a few years ago, but not sure how comprehensive it was. Normally a DVD deal is in the works in situations like this. And they'll use Bruno for commentary.

Which also still makes me unsure as to why they haven't put in Savage. They did a DVD on the man and acknowledged his death. Jeez >.>

It's a commonly ridiculed sport, and not really one I follow, but it actually does take a lot of strength and lung capacity. Doing a routine that includes lifting a team member without touching the bottom of the pool cannot be easy.

Really surprised to read that. More surprised to hear the reason specially doping. Lol that means no more cycling events. IMO the reason it's being dropped is that the rich nations can't win many medals from it. Laughing at the substitute sports

Well, I don't think they'd drop all cycling if it was due to doping, I don't think it's a big issue in track cycling. But considering wrestling is one of the original Olympic sports, it's a bit troubling. Sure, there are a few things that I'm glad they changed from the ancient Olympics, along with some of the dropped "sports", like Chariot racing.

I have also wondered about the sports that are still men only, though thankfully it's changing.

I find it funny that in the age of five hundred channels, we have a hard time finding time to broadcast more than twenty-five sports that only come on every four years.

Ps After going over my post I am not sure of what I am trying to say. I leave it as somebody might be able to explain it to me.:)
