    WWE Hall of Fame 2019

    CTPost article Didn't the father of last year's recipient get in some major legal trouble recently? I can see them taking that as a cue as to honor their own, instead of giving it to charity cases they can't vet as deeply as they can their own employees.

    WWE Hall of Fame 2019

    Not exactly what I had in mind when I said NYC-centric, but I'll take it. Any WCW acts that never worked for WWE getting in is always a bit of a pleasant surprise. If this class shakes out the way I think it will, theirs will be the only induction I'll have any interest in watching.

    Something to Wrestle with Bruce Prichard

    Apart from live appearances and just the actual show itself, I don't get the impression he does anywhere near the heavy lifting for the show Conrad does as far as research, apart from maybe re-watching whatever show they cover. It could actually be beneficial to his position in the company, to go over old ground and see how it could possibly fit in the framework of what's going on now.

    The Ross Report

    I think Conrad and JR could have great chemistry. If he truly feels done with Connecticut then this could have the potential to be an explosive program. He doesn't strike me as having the BS quota Prichard and especially Bischoff possesses, so it could be less of a shouting match between the two as weeks go by.

    Something to Wrestle with Bruce Prichard

    The show is going on, but their remaining live dates are being touted as a farewell tour, make of that what you will. I liked the episode on Jerry Lawler. I found it interesting that Bruce saw the segments between Lawler and Heyman as what should have been for that horrible program he had with Piper. And of course his differing account from Lawler himself about what really happened when he quit.

    In order of importance the real criteria for induction is if you’re not on the McMahon shit-list, if they can make money/media attention off of you getting in, or if you made an undeniable impact on the industry.
  7. Is WWE Films producing this?

    Too bad he never worked a match with Flair

    WWF Superstars (Of Wrestling) on the Network

    I find it hilarious that they managed to put up a few seconds of Warrior puking up in the promotional clip

    WWE Network... It's Here

    I wonder if any segments will be edited out

    WCW's Highway to Hell

    I heard King Kong Bundy say something recently and it perfectly sums up what I feel about WCW. He said he knew it was over for them when he saw Eric Bischoff cut a 15-minute promo, sitting on a motorcycle. I'm probably misquoting what he directly said, but it was something to the effect of "this place is doomed because this guy thinks he's a star".

    Very strange that there hasn't been anything official yet. Regardless of that, or if putting them in is in part to appease a grieving daughter, but The Hart Foundation definitely deserve to be in. For at least the time they were together, they were the best tag team that company had. And maybe ever had.

    I wish they'd scale it down a bit, and not just in terms of the length. Do it like they did in 2004 and in the 90's where it'd be in a ballroom somewhere with just the roster, their families, etc. It would make for better television. I could see something like this if they ever get around to actually making a building for their HOF.

    WCW ongoing thread

    I watched DDP/Goldberg from Halloween Havoc '98, and I've got to say it holds up as a fast-paced big-hype match. Hindsight-wise it would have been better if DDP won and broke the streak himself, as it could have built up another big program between the two, instead of...you know.

    I read somewhere that WWE might not make this as big a priority this year. I hope that's not the case but I somehow wouldn't be surprised after last year's show.
