Lesnar needs to use his old attire. I hate his current look. I want to see the 2002-2004 Brock Lesnar. Goldberg or Batista will make an appearance at Raw's 1,000th Episodes.

Poor Story telling, and long and overdrawn NWO killed WCW. They had the best talents, and the best rosters in the late 1990's. WCW's Cruiserweight Division had the best Luchadors in the World during that time.


Bret Hart vs. Hulk Hogan should have been a main event at Super Brawl.

Bruno Sammartino Calls Flair An Idiot, Talks Rejecting WWE HOF Offer

The following are interview highlights with pro wrestling legend Bruno Sammartino:

Sammartino on memories of WrestleMania 1: "When (Vince) McMahon contacted me after Vince Sr. died, he asked me if I would come back saying he wanted to carry on his father's tradition and who better to do that with than me because Iíd been there for so many years. I agreed because he said Iíd do broadcasting once every three weeks. Everything turned out to be not true. He did not keep in his fatherís tradition. He made changes that I personally didnít care for. I saw the disgusting steroid and drug use that bother me tremendously so things started going bad for me in that relationship. As for that WrestleMania, I had no idea how big it would be. I was there as a second, with my son on the ring. I was so unhappy at the time. I just wanted to get away from there."

Sammartino on changes in wrestling that he doesn't like: "Not that we had girl wrestlers, they brought them in skimpy. The wrestling, they started getting more vulgar, the profanity, the language. Everything had changed. Triple H having sex with a corpse in a casket. You can imagine what that would do to someone like me who had been in the business 25 years and see this. To see Steve Austin, the champion, he had a can of beer in his hand and they had to bleep every word, there were little kids in the audience. It appalled me."

Sammartino on his thoughts of Hulk Hogan: "People get fooled by publicity. Hogan wasnít a good champion at all. In 1985, Hogan had been champion for a year and a half. Vince asked me to put on the tights because the house was down. He would do a good house the first time, but if he came back the second, or dare the third time, he couldnít draw. He wasnít a great performer. It did not work. He would use him more for merchandise and pay per view events. He was not a good for a champion like previous people."

Sammartino on his thoughts of Ric Flair: "Heís an idiot. A first class pathetic idiot. He wrote a book and said something that wasnít very complimentary about me, I havenít read it so I donít know. So Iím standing in the hallway at the show talking to two, three people and my back was turned to him. When I turned around and he saw me, I started walking towards him to say hello and he turned away and ran. Later, he told one of the Hebner brothers that he wanted to come say hello to me but I turned my back on him and ignored him. Which is a complete bold class lie."

Sammartino on his thoughts of the WWE Hall Of Fame:
"I am in the Hall of Fame. The Pro Wrestling Hall of Fame. Only wrestlers get inducted there. When you talk about (Vince) McMahonís Hall of Fame, I absolutely wouldnít have any part of it because of my feelings for him and his company. Secondly, itís not a legitimate Hall of Fame. When you have kids and you wanna go see a building, thereís nowhere to go. Itís just a marketing campaign. Look whoís in it, game show hosts, Drew Carey. A baseball player, football player. Iíd be embarrassed to be in that Hall of Fame."

Dumb.


WWE killed another good angle. They need to hire Jim Cornette, or bring back Vince Russo.

When the lights went off and Super Dragon was in the ring, I think the yelling of the 200 odd people there was louder than 2000 at the WWE show I went too. Freaking electric.

Talked to El Generico before the show, he keeps up the whole Spanglish speaking bit the entire time, funny stuff. You should defintely go if you ever get the chance.

Damn, WWE is so lame at the moment, I dont know why im still sticking around.

Cody did not win the brief case
CM Punk retain, the Punk vs Bryan Feud has dragged out and Punk wins 3 times in a row against Daniel.
Cena unnecessarily wins the brief case.

There gonna need a huge summer angle, this product is becoming stale more each day.

I just watched the ppv and it sucks... all the storyline are at the same point as before the ppv

Except the first match, it was really boring. And all the wins were predictable

word. raw's have been terrible but i was at least optimistic this would be a good PPV. it ended up just being meh. totally generic and predictable.

cena main events regardless and they had to pull his superman gimmick yet again. then he acts shocked that he won....gtfo. i'm also pretty sure the ending was botched. he was supposed to knock show down but instead just ripped the damn handle off.

if that 1000th raw doesn't create an interesting main event angle, i'm done with wwe for a long while. main event feuds just suck right now. punk has had one of the least memorable near one year reigns i've ever seen.

Its like management cant think of nothing. Is this show run by Monkeys seriously?

Sheamus has to be one of the most boring WHC. Him feuding with Del Rio does not help.

I honestly didn't even watch Raws MiTB, I thought would be so predictable and lame and I was right, it was.

AJ pulls no shenanigans and calls the match fairly and Punk retains. What another wasted feud and potential.

Im happy for Ziggler, though he should of been in the Raw MiTB and won while Cody wins the Smackdown MiTB but what ever.

Though the only thing im looking forward with right now are the Prime Time Players.

You know it's bad when you have a love triangle story in the WWE Championship picture. I thought that kind of an angle is reserved for the mid-carders and comic relief wrestlers?

Ziggler and Rhodes needs to be the next Main Eventers in the WWE. Cody Rhodes is good on the mic, and he has the best finisher right now.
