    Think you guys are taking it a bit out of context. For nascar fans; look at the increased safety methods since 2001. They had 3 drivers killed on the track in the previous year; then the sports biggest star (Dale Earnhardt) gets killed in the biggest race (Daytona 500) and they can no longer ignore the need for a better protection system. And how many have been killed since then?

    I think he was just saying that if wrestlers keep working loopholes like this, there needs to be a major disaster to make any major changes in the future.

Well anyone in 2000 who said they hoped Dale Earnhardt would die in a crash at the Daytona 500 the following year would have merited the same kind of response.

People are aware of the problem now - why should it take yet another major death for it to be addressed? And that's even if you grant the assumption at the center of InVerse's statement: that WWE lets guys start over from scratch on wellness violations if they sign a new contract. Someone would have to provide some evidence before I personally would be willing to believe that to be true.

WWE *did* show Kurt Angle the door. I believe - though I'm not sure - that the company has told Jeff Hardy to leave and get cleaned up in the past. I have the same obvious doubts regarding WWE's sincerity that I think most people would, but regardless of the company's motive I think some positive actions have already been taken. I certainly hope it doesn't take another death - a death on live TV no less - to force the additional actions that might need to be taken.

To hell with Booker and Umaga coming back. I could care less about either. I'd rather see Paul London or Colt Cabana return.

I like both Booker and Umaga, especially Umaga. It seems a shame, though, that Umaga might return to WWE without first seeing what opportunities might present themselves to him in TNA or ROH.
