Long story short, Ole says in his book he fired Bret for no-showing some cards. Bret has always been REALLY proud of his track record in regards to attendance. This should give you a good idea of the tone he takes:
"The Pro Wrestling business has rarely come across such a humungus jackoff of the caliber of Ole Anderson."

Hahaha. Sort of uncharacteristic of Bret. I normally would raise an eyebrow or two at such a response, but considering it was at Ole Anderson, I totally understand where he's coming from. Ole is a supreme jackass.
And to think, Bret has NEVER written anything even 1% as angry as this in regards to Vince and SS'97. I suppose Ole Anderson does that to people.

Ole Anderson has the uncanny power to piss people off in ways previously thought impossible. See also: Flair, Ric.
I don't think I've ever seen Bret go off on anyone like this before and he's got good reason to. I've never read anywhere about Bret no-showing any event, even in the worst of times. Proving once again that Ole Anderson lives on a totally different planet from the rest of us. (Like Planet Stasiak, only less funny)
You really SHOULD think about going back to your old Yankees cap, yo!
I think Ole needs a frontal lobotomy because he told my dad a few years later that the reason I didn't make it down there in Atlanta was because I smelled bad and that none of the wrestlers wanted to work with me.
Bryan-Orton was great, Orton stepped up his game and changed his usual schtick around. Basically, as so often, Smackdown was a good solid show. Nothing was horrendous, other than all the Raw rewind type things.
