Madison wrote:$50 for a Pete Rose autograph? 8-o They all paid $49.50 too much. :-b

Now if he were to autograph a photo of Kane tombstoning him, that might be worth $50. :-?

:-D


The Halloween commercial they aired this year was funny as hell but I still can't believe that he is in the WWE HOF.

So what if he bet on baseball. He was the best at what he did when he was on the field.


He was good...I wouldn't say he was the best. However, it's not the betting on baseball that got him in so much trouble. Its the fact he was betting on games he was managing. And probably not always for his team.

It doesn't matter to me if it was for or against his team. It was wrong and since he wrote a book, he should know how to read the signs in the clubhouse that say that if you bet on the game, you are banned for life.

I always thought being a writer for the WWF would be the coolest job in the world.

I always thought owning the WWF (now WWE) would be the best job. :-D

Is it just me, or do their writers really stink? Sad as it is, I think most fans can do a better writing job than the current creative team does. :-?

I dont follow wrestling anymore but I used to be big on it during the early-mid 90s. Anyways, I found this great database (you guys might know it) with every single wrestler you can think of with good profiles. It sure brings back lots of memories.

One of my faves.
