He's a lifelong fan, and was offered to buy ECW by Paul E. and turned him down (despite being a HUGE fan), so he definitely has business acumen. He is a millionaire, but the money would be coming from investors (just like the proposed Jarrett and Bischoff deals).

He owned/owns Resistance Pro Wrestling, which didn't seem to be anything spectacular, even with an impressive number of indy stars. Sounds like what they call a "money mark".

Impressive? There roster seemed bare bones to me. I always looked over the cards and saw barely any recognizable names (even from the PWI500). The fact that he turned down an off from Paul E. himself to buy TNA should prove that he's no money mark.

First few shows they had Colt Cabana, Davey Richards, Briscoe Bro's, Kyle O'Reily, Rhino, The Sheik, El Generico, Harry Smith, Petey Williams, Necro Butcher, Kevin Steen, PAC, and Teddy Hart all appearing. That's a near ROH show there.

And since? He's no "money mark," look at the shows now, he's not putting that kind of money into it.

Chris Hero aka Kassias Ohno is done with WWE. Rumours say it is his attitude problems that led into the release.

So, no Kings of Wrestling reunite in WWE, for now?

He apparentely didn't get in shape too. Always been a bit pudgy. I've heard stories of him being a bit of a prick. Yelling and screaming at guys backstage for things he thought they did wrong.

Look forward to seeing him back in PWG and ROH though.

WWE is currently making an effort to push larger-sized Superstars. The feeling is the company has a lot of average-sized talent and that now is the time to sign more head-turning attractions. WWE is putting heavy emphasis on bigger and stronger Superstars instead of guys like CM Punk and Daniel Bryan.

This is apparently the reason we've seen a push for Big Show to the main event level, as well as the reason behind his match with Randy Orton for the WWE Championship at the upcoming Survivor Series pay-per-view on November 24th. Additionally, the large-guy-push in WWE is the reason for the added television exposure of guys like Luke Harper and The Great Khali.

A lot of the blame, as far as WWE is concerned, belongs to the recent attempt to push Daniel Bryan to the top. Bryan is getting the blame by WWE management for the recent drop in pay-per-views, as they feel they gave him a shot in the top spot for the last few months-worth of pay-per-views, and they consider the buyrates dropping to be a direct result of trying to push a smaller guy as opposed to a larger guy, which WWE feels the fans want these days.


Ugh...Seriously how is a billion dollar company THIS stupid?

I like how they take this smaller wrestlers who are over and then just constantly shit on them then complain "eugh, these small guys can't draw. Time to push Big Show for the millionth time".

The funniest thing about it is that Triple H has been the center of ALL these PPVs that didn't do well, but it wasn't HIS fault they didn't draw. It was Bryan.

Then last week on Raw they advertised all show long that at the end of Raw, Triple H and Stephanie would confront the Big Show. Let's see how the ratings did for that segment:

- Triple H and Stephanie McMahon's confrontation with Big Show failed to entice a good number of fans as viewership continuously dropped during the show.

Raw viewership peaked during the first hour, drawing 4.069 million viewers. The second hour drew 3.951 million viewers, before plunging to 3.643 million in the third and final hour featuring a confrontation between the power couple and "The World's Largest Athlete."

According to Dave Meltzer's report, WWE just offered a development contract to AJ Styles. But here's the kicker; it is said to be worth 1/5 of what Styles has made with TNA right now.

Should a 36-years-old wrestler with his own family and a great position in the current company take a risk for a couple of years for potentially bigger contracts with a rival company?
