So, I just got back from watching SummerSlam at a local movie theater in the north end of Toronto. I get there and who do I see but Carl DeMarco, the president of WWE Canada and long time Bret Hart sympathizer. It's not a huge deal because (a) he's not a big name or anything and (b) I see him in North York all the time.

He's taking up -- literally -- two seats near the front of the theater and the place is packed. A kid who couldn't be more than 15 asks DeMarco to move because he had saved those two seats for a friend. DeMarco says something like "I'm with WWE, so these seats are reserved (they were not." The kid protests a bit and threatens to call the manager, and DeMarco just says "Call the usher. I don't care." Then he goes back to chowing down on his snacks and ignoring people who want to talk to him. He left right after the Brock Lesnar match and didn't return.

Anyways, just a real classless move for someone who's supposed to be promoting WWE in Canada, and instead is being rude to young fans.



King Kong Bundy to return? Montreal screwjob really just a work? None of these questions, plus more, in the latest Inside The Ropes!!!

MAybe he was just going for some cheap heel heat from the kids. ANYONE who watched that NBC special from a few years ago - THE SECRETS OF PRO WRESTLING starring (shhhhh) Harley Race, knows that the kids Demarco wouldn't move for are REALLY a work! Those kids are getting "Pizza and a Ride home"...

Is that what Patterson calls it now a days...

Anyways, I've never been impressed with DeMarco. I've seen him on Off The Record before, and also on The Score. Funny thing is, he's said the exact same thing pretty much word for word on every appearance in the last 6 years. The guy either gets his apperances handwritten by Vince himself, or else has had a team of people figure out the way to suck up to Vince the most within a 22 minute period.

It's always non-stop "Vince McMahon is a genius" and other 'Vince created wrestling' type bullshit that 14 year old kids fall for, and always with the same pompous smirk on his face. He's clearly where he is based on his ability to kiss McMahon's ass.

Whoa, I wonder where the rage came from...

This is sad to hear. Watching an event with fans is a good idea, but treating them like crap is best left to the bookers.

Talked to Carl once during a phone-in show; we talked about the CRTC/TSN's censoring of Raw. On that show he struck me as a very cool person - well spoken, very polite and imformative when asked good questions. Maybe Carl was just having a bad day, but still, that was a pretty dumb-ass thing for him to do. He should've known better.




I think somebody needs a Mattitude adjustment.

Lately I've been watching whatever old PPVs I have lying around. Mostly stuff from the late 80s WWF. Is there an online resource or reviews of the PPVs that could give me more info on back story lines and perhaps even insider info from that era.
