< -On his return reaction: Said most of the RAW audience was not happy to see him, a few were.
-On Goldberg: Said he and Goldberg ride up to Sturgis every year. Added that Goldberg does want to wrestle again.
-On Steve Austin: Said that Austin got real "bitchy" in WCW when they started bringing in the big names. He said Austin was not a "man" about the changes. Added that he was justified by what Austin did to WWE since he got a lot of heat for letting him leave WCW.
-On whether he has booking power: He tried to make it sound like he has some input, and that would grow eventually, but never said anything concrete.
-On WCW's Demise: Said he had nothing to do with it, and it was not Russo's fault either. WCW's demise was a result of big business mergers.
-On What He Did For WCW: Said that WCW never turned a profit until he came in, and he had the promotion turn a profit in 14 months. The interviewers questioned why WCW was even shut down, ignoring the fact that the promotion lost $80 million+ in 2000.
-On Sting & Scott Steiner: Said Sting has become very religious and hinted that he might not ever return to the ring. On Steiner, said that Steiner has been wrestling and there is a chance he could end up in WWE.
-On The Worst Injury He Has Ever Seen: Said Sid's leg injury was the worst, followed by Buff Bagwell.
-On Brock Lesnar: Said Lesnar has a lot of intensity, even more than Goldberg.
-On Vengeance: Said he will raid Smackdown's talent and then said that Sunday will be the start of the next big era in pro-wrestling.>>
Glad to see he admits the audience wasn't glad to see him. Personally, I was. I hated him in WCW for the shit he pulled, but I can appreciate his ability to be a prick heel. And the best part of the whole deal is that he WORKS for Vince. I'm sure Vince will take pleasure in releasing him one day. He got him fired indirectly before by kicking his show's ass, and now he will be able to do it himself.
Interesting comments on Austin there. Doesn't seem they will be working together anytime soon. And Eric says he "let him leave"? I thought he fired him over the phone when he was injured.
I didn't know that WCW EVER turned a profit. I thought they were always in the red. Well, I guess he knows better than I. But I wonder for how many years they actually turned a profit. It couldn't have been many.
I like Lesnar, but he doesn't seem as intense as Goldberg to me.
so he could have more power soon in terms of throwing in ideas. I don't see this as necesarily a bad thing. He could have some interesting ideas.
He has nothing to do with WCW's demise, and blames in on mergers or whatever? That's funny. I'm sure if he kept WCW profitable like he was supposed to then when that merger happened AOL would have been more than glad to keep them around. You can't blame AOL for dumping a company that was losing millions of dollars.
Says Steiner may be in WWE soon. I'm all for it, as long as he doesn't spend more time on the sidelines than in the ring like some fellow former WCW employees.
Gangrel would cause a greater ratings spike. Please believe it. HOWEVER, the real key is that the ratings are at least up from last week (although that was a holdiday). Now we can see if Rock's presence can KEEP them climbing. That's the important thing....
