so really, it's no wonder he's short on cash which is sad given the career he's had. they were doing some recent events/signings....i wonder if ric noticed anything different or even knew if he was using at the time. some of them can hide it pretty well.

i hope flair saves up, makes amends with his history and retires. really, he's a legend but we don't need to see him in the ring anymore. that's just who he is i guess. one speed: GO! he doesn't operate in any other mode. he's balls to the wall in everything he does, whether it be arguing or partying.

it sucks for sure. as a wrestling fan, you almost have to get used to tragedy. somewhat expected deaths are one thing and this may have been one but it almost always seems to come out of left field. at this point, i'm expecting hall and roberts to live until 2230 just to fvck the system.

I was wondering do you or anyone else know what Ric Flair's cardio exercise routine was like in his prime in the 80s?

I heard he had one of the best cardio conditioning for a wrestler and would always do cardio in the morning even after staying up late, drinking, etc the night before.

This crowd is going to be ROUGH:

Quote:
It appears that the HOF crowd was really rough with Maria Menounos, Donald Trump and John Cena. Reports are that Maria almost started crying.

They even booed John Cena's make a wish video.

Quote:
By Marc Middleton on 04/07/2013

- Most everyone in attendance for last night's WWE Hall of Fame induction ceremony at Madison Square Garden noted that the crowd was very rough at times. Donald Trump and Maria Menounos apparently received the biggest boos of the night. One fan noted that Maria looked like she was going to cry. She went long during her speech for Bob Backlund and was met with "WHAT?" chants.

When John Cena was shown on the big screen, the crowd booed him out of the building. WWE aired a Make-A-Wish video featuring Cena and even that got a very negative reaction from the crowd.

- There was a strong buzz around Bruno Sammartino backstage at the Hall of Fame last night. Many of the WWE stars were meeting Bruno for the first time ever.

- At best we can tell, WWE Champion The Rock was not in attendance for last night's ceremony but one fan noted they spotted his mother in the crowd. Dolph Ziggler tweeted the following before last night's ceremony about Rock:

"hey @TheRock marks would 90's rock sit back and 'know his role'?"

I don't Booker T deserves it. He was a high mid carder to me.

I'll say that he gets rated too highly by most people.

He's mad underrated by most people. Which people are you talking about.

He paid his dues in the tag team division with Stevie Ray, then worked his way up slowly to main event status.

I always thought he was better than guys like Edge, Matt and Jeff Hardy and Chris Benoit who went down the same path. Guys that made their way in the tag division and then worked their way up the singles ladder. But Book had to work his way up much harder.

I think Edge was given a major title push right after him and Christan broke up. Booker T started with the TV Title down in WCW. The Hardy brothers were fighting for major titles when they broke up.

Book's rise is similar to Triple H's.
