Since Wrestlemania is in the Jersey area next year do you see a good chance of Bam Bam Bigelow getting in the Hall of Fame? He certainly deserves to get in.

I agree with you.  He sure does deserve to get in.  I think he would be a great pick for next year given his Jersey roots.

What's Joey Styles been up to in WWE?

Since leaving his role as an announcer, Styles has been working for WWE.com.  For a while, he was on the road as the dot com conduit to the creative team but now he works exclusively in Stamford.

Do you think the NWA world title history would be any different had David Von Erich hadn't died & Magnum TA hadn't have gotten injured? Both men had been rumored to have been in line for a title reign & is it possible that either one could have helped keep the NWA afloat .

Different?  Sure because David was scheduled to win the Title before his death so that alone would have changed things.  I also think that Magnum was on his way to being a breakthrough star before his accident.  Had it not happened, I think he would have evolved into a true top guy.

I have noticed that Ryback's left eye seems to be red. Is there something wrong with his eye?

He got pink eye about a month or so ago and it has been slow in clearing up.

Why is there such a hatred for Randy Orton? In the ring he's still one of the best in ring talents that's respected by many of his peers, past and present, as being one of, some say the best, wrestler going today. Is his style methodical? Yes, but so was Dory Funk Jr.'s Greg Valentine's, Harley Race's and Bob Backlund's to name a few and they all came out great with that style. He adds new moves to his arsenal(like the slingshot suplex) and isn't one dimensional or clumsy looking like Cena. I just cant figure out why he's so hated when he's so good.

First off, I think "hated" is too strong of a word.  With that said, you are obviously an old-school fan given the names you mentioned above.  I think that is where the disconnect comes in.  Fans that go back to your era have different expectations than newer fans, who expect to see more action and don't like the methodical, old-school style.  He has something that appeals to you and something that doesn't appeal to newer fans.
