NO BRET HART IN CANADA, HOGAN'S ROLE IN TNA, THE KONG-BUBBA FIGHT, WWE HALL OF FAME AND MORE

By Dave Scherer on 2010-02-01 10:00:00

Looking at the WWE Raw schedule leading up to and immediately after Wrestlemania, I notice there are no RAW's scheduled in Canada. Is WWE really going to have Bret Hart in for a run with the company and not have him appear in Canada? Or even Madison Square Garden where he always gets HUGE responses?

Yes, they are.  You can't really blame them for that.  The deal with Bret came together in December and they had much of their travel itinerary laid out by then.  They couldn't go and reschedule everything and honestly, I don't think it really matters.  Bret will get a big reaction wherever he goes.  It would have been nice for him to get a chance to appear in Canada.  Maybe he will stay around and do so.

I would like your opinion on a number of wrestlers who I feel deserve to be in the WWF/E Hall Of Fame. The only names that I hear that may be a lock for this year are Stu Hart and "The Million Dollar Man" Ted DiBiase. What about wrestlers like Jim Neidhart, "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan, Tony Garea, Demolition (Ax and Smash), The Road Warriors (Animal and Hawk), King Kong Bundy, Brutus "The Barber" Beefcake, The Honkytonk Man, Jake "The Snake" Roberts and Kamala? These wrestlers deserve a shot at being inducted into the WWF/E Hall Of Fame in my opinion. What would your vote be on the list of wrestlers that I put up and if you say no, please, could you explain why you wouldn't put that wrestler into the WWF/E Hall Of Fame??

The criteria for the WWE Hall is different than it would be a Hall where the body of work of the wrestler was seriously scrutinized.  I will give you my answer based on the WWE criteria, and by that I mean James Dudley and Koko B. Ware are in.  Everyone on your list is at least the equal of those two so they should all go in.

The WWF/E Hall Of Fame has only three women in it. The Fabulous Moolah, Sherri Martel and Mae Young. Since Wendi Richter and Alundra Blaze (Madusa) won't be inducted due to past problems with the WWF/E, What about Luna Vachon, Tammy "Sunny" Stych and ...please don't be eating anything when I bring her name up...MISSY HYATT!! Hyatt was successful is the NWA, UWF, WCCW and WCW!! Considering that many other wrestlers have had success in other leagues other than the WWF/E and still made it into the WWF/E Hall Of Fame, I think that Hyatt deserves a chance to be inducted into the HOF as well as Vachon and Stych. What do you think??

Sunny is a first ballot, no brainer.  She was the first real diva in WWE and deserves to be in.  When you look at the fact that Verne Gagne is in, you can say even though Missy was never big in WWE, she was in a lot of other places so she is in too.  Luna is on the fence for me.   

I just read the Bubba the Love Sponge interview with Hulk Hogan, where they were discussing the incident with Awesome Kong. Hogan seemed to come off as condoning (or at least saying he wouldn't blame him if he had done so) hitting Kong back. Not that I think that sucker punching Bubba was the right thing for her to do, but do you think that it is smart for the new face of TNA to go on the radio and act as if hitting a woman is OK? Also, what do you think that Dixie Carter is thinking of all the drama that is going on right now, such as the backlash on the ring change, the "cast member" youtube video, etc.?

Since Hogan is supposedly shooting on Bubba's show, you have to assume that he was serious in what he said.  I actually think it's more offensive to assert that Kong was menstruating and attacked Bubba for that reason.  At the end of the day, even though I am no fan of Bubba, Kong did assault him, without justifiable cause.  She is a large woman.  I don't condone violence against women, but I don't condone it against men either.  I don't think Bubba would have been in the wrong if he tried to defend himself from being attacked in that situation, especially given that she tuned him up.  Again, the fact of the matter is that Kong attacked  him.  I understand that she was upset by Bubba's callous remark about the people suffering in Haiti, but you still can't go up and hit him for it.  If she attacked me, I think I would defend myself.

As for Dixie, I think she likes that her ratings have been going up.

We all know Hogan is with TNA. We know he and Bischoff signed with the company. My question is, was Hogan signed to be an on air talent, or is he really on the booking team? Is he in charge of things as he keeps claiming to be or is he trying to kayfabe everybody?

Hogan has said that he has signed on to be like Vince McMahon.  I think that is pretty good description of what his role is.
