This n That

  1. I will do my best to get predictions up for Sunday's PPV by Sunday ... or at least comments on the results if not possible. Heading to Montreal tomorrow, and have family visiting Sunday. But I will do my best.
  2. Carlito Colon was released by the WWE today following a Wellness Policy violation (read: third drug test failure). This relationship has been strained for quite awhile and his release, for any reason, is not the surprise one might think, sadly. A talented wrestler with very little drive to use what the good Lord gave him.
  3. Have you guys followed the online war of words between the Ultimate Warrior and Million Dollar Man Ted Dibiase? It started with Ted Dibiase saying, upon hearing UW had been approached about joining the WWE's hall of fame, that he wouldn't have recommended him if Vince had asked, and elaborated on why - fairly enough. Ultimate Warrior responded at his website, on the Warrior's Machete section. Fairly in some respects (if 3 years at or near the top of a card and one world title win is somehow underachieving or a poor showing, then there are truly heinously few good sports entertainers out there). However, I believe he was at the top at a time where it wasn't so hard to be, if you had a marketable look and character. I tend to agree with Rev. Ted that he did not get there on talent, but based largely on a career of few-minute-long squash matches - Dibiase, Hulk Hogan and Randy Savage being the exceptions, and to a lesser extend Rick Rude) and unintelligible promos. Dibiase responded today and you can read his thoughts by clicking HERE. Well spoken Ted, and spoken like a man who doesn't need to justify himself or his career, but simply live in the best light he can now.
  4. Congratulations to Randy Savage on his remarriage earlier this week. All the best wishes for a happy life together.
