Shared a lift with D'Lo Brown (and a Predator and an Alien!) at the Collectormania event over the weekend.

Also managed to set up WWF Attitude on a Dreamcast for him to play, got some snaps of D'Lo playing as himself, which I thought was pretty wicked!

Didn't realise he was massive Liverpool FC fan; he attended the Chelsea game the other week whilst he was over.

I've been putting my free month of the Network to good use, and in that format I wouldn't object to £9.99 a month. Two really annoying things though are not everything will play properly in full screen, and if you want to skip to the end of the match the timestamps state the outcome (e.g 31:00 Hogan pins Flair for the win) so spoil anything you might not have seen first time

Is that just on the old PPV's, or on the live stuff as well :wink:

I never got to see the PPVs as a kid, and seeing as they also have the WCW and ECW ones up there's a vast amount to remember


Anyway, I always thought Sunny was one of the hottest girls in the company

Unfortunately she's fallen on some pretty rough times

Well CM Punk finally spoke out about his WWE problems on Colt Colbanas Art of wrestling podcast

In short
He was sick of part timers getting more money and title shots
He was sick of working all the time
He was sick of being made to work when having a concussion (Not pleasant)
Was sick of taking concussion tests
Was sick of having a medical problem (some kind of growth) not being taken care of
Was sick of working with Ryback
Was sick of the WWE saying "You are in the main event" when he was middle of the card
Was sick of his ideas being passed, only to be used later as someone elses
Was sick of all WWEs ideas being Yay Cena
Was sick of all them make a wish things other stars do being done on the quiet, but Cenas getting pushed

He claimed it "killed what he once had fun doing" and would rather work in Starbucks as at least this way he could have time off.

So why dosnt he go to another promotion?
NJPW, TNA and ROH seem to give a toss about there wrestlers

Thanks for the heads up, will listen to it later. :)

He probbly doesn't need the money and they probably couldn't pay him what he's used to from WWE to make it worth his while. Some of TNA's 'top earners' get less than a lot of WWE midcarders, and even then TNA seem to be letting quite a few people go to cut costs.

He mentioned his frustration at not being allowed to do movies, so wouldn't surprise me if he cropped up in a few of them. I have always found it a bit odd how The Rock is the only wrestler to have a really successful Hollywood career. Cena always strikes me as a likeable lead and 12 Rounds was pretty good (although The Marine was crap) so I would have thought he'd go on to bigger things

He did say in the past that he was interested in doing MMA.

If he does the GTS in a match I think the internet will explode
