Right off the bat, it seems that the WWE is having some problems lining up Talent for their Next DVD project. In the works right now is “ The Rise and Fall of WCW” they have already contacted Ted Turner and he has told them no. Bischoff has also said no but there is some speculation that either he is holding out for A better price or doesn’t want to be so selectively edited as they have done in the past. I certainly hope he does do it otherwise you wont have anyone of substance on the disc that isn’t collecting a regular paycheck from the WWE. There really needs to be at least one voice from the other side so both sides can be told.

In an interview with the UK sun , Bret Hart had a few things to say on several different subjects. On Taker and HBK at WM25 , he was very impressed with the match , saying it was the best he had seen in quite a long time . On passing the torch , given the circumstances of his departure from the company , this isn’t a good subject to have him talk about but he did say that many wrestlers like Hogan , Roberts , and the Warrior never passed the torch to anyone. Hart said he would have loved to help Steve Austin get over and would have even had another match with HBK. On Cena being the company guy Hart basically said that while he doesn’t support everything that Cena Says or does , he has been is Cena’s shoes and it isn’t the easiest place to be.

The NBA is cutting into the ratings of both TNA and WWE. I got news for both sides, as teams get eliminated and series get better and better its only going to get worse. The days of rising ratings are on hold until the end of the NBA. As the Lakers and Cavaliers had toward their showdown , the wrestling audience on cable will be stagnant at best.

A little note in wrestling history. Twenty years ago today in Nashville Tenn . Rick Flair defeated Ricky the Dragon Steamboat for the NWA world title . I bring this up only to point out that their was a window of opportunity to have a Flair , Steamboat match at anyone of the last three Wrestle Mania’s and some how it didn’t happen. Its no wonder that the way things are getting made up on the fly lately , that they miss these kind of opportunities to sell your product .

Ken Kennedy has gone down to FCW to scrape the ring rust off in hopes that he can resume his career sooner rather then later . A once very bright future has been dimmed by serious reoccurring injuries and to be completely honest, I am somewhat surprised that they have stayed with him as long as they have . Lets hope for the best for Kennedy , Kennedy ……

And finally , Dennis Rodman , fresh of his winning the Coveted CCW belt , making inquires to TNA. I got two words for TNA, Pac Man. They do not need to complicate there situation any more then having this idiot come in and turn things on its side. He isn’t a big enough name to come in on his own and make a splash , so that’s money they can spend better somewhere else.
