This is awkward. Hey remember when the crowd cared about Orton's challenger?

wouldn't getting powerbombed through a table hurt substantially less than getting dropped on concrete? like, wouldn't it break your fall slightly? that always bugged me.

The crowd doesn't even react to Orton, that's how boring he is.

So I guess Kane's character is officially dead?

The best name I saw for the new character is Citizen Kane. Genius.

Justin LaBar(writer for wtestlezone) said on twitter that the reason Kane is "suit and tie Kane" A) he might be running for Governor of Tennessee. B) he is slowly going from wrestler to backstage agent. I know Glen Jacobs(Kane) has always been strongly involved with politics but I have no clue if any of what Justin said is true

I hope this will be similar to a Bradshaw to JBL transition.

I really enjoyed this article: http://www.cagesideseats.com/wwe/2013/1 ... r-own-good

The writing is subpar, but the point is correct. Group think pervades smark-thinking, and the article is equally applicable to the PR board here.

Brutus The Barber wants to help Toronto Mayor Rob Ford with his crack problem... with food.

He was then asked to leave. :lol:

in related news, The Iron Sheik showed up yesterday, wanted to know if the mayor was "a real man", challenged him to an arm wrestling match, and of course was asked to leave.

No mention of the Iron Sheik wanting to break the mayor's back or threatening to him make him humble.

I just saw that Chris Hero was released from WWE. I guess he never really found his niche on NXT. It's a shame, because he's super talented. At least he doesn't have to be called Kassius Ohno anymore. That has to be the WORST name ever thought of by WWE creative.

I heard that there was a little more to it, that he was asked to get in better ring shape and to hit the gym a little more.

Yeah. And he apparently had other issues with his attitude, too.

He is also in his mid 30s, and the clock was ticking on him as far as a developmental prospect goes.
