Remember when they did this last strike, With Macho man pitching to the little leaguer?

Remember when some wrestlers wanted to start a union, but a monopolistic wrestling promoter threatened them and pressured them out of it?

I was thinking the same thing! And wasn't it also during the last strike that MVP/Abe "Knuckleball" Schwartz (aka Steve Lombardi) started showing up? Let's hope for his return...

WWE should buy some time on Sportscenter and run that ad.

Actually I remember that Diesel said that he'd sign the autographs for the kids for free. Because he was a nice, gentle Big Daddy Cool back then.

I remember Bret walking up to the kid backstage and giving him the sunglasses before stepping out into the arena. Had they did the commercial several years later, Stone Cold would give the kid his hat, flip him off, then give his dad a Kick Wham Stunner!

Didn't he also drink milk in that commercial, a la Angle?

Why do I seem to remember Owen Hart doing the glasses commercial, but snapping them into the kid's face after giving them to him?

I'm not sure if I remember that commercial, but I remember when he and Neidhart double-teamed a jobber, Neidhart put the poor sap in a camel clutch while Owen put the sunglasses on him and repeatedly snapped them on his face.

Oh nooooo, contract disputes don't end their season...


But STORYLINE disputes sometimes result in the main attraction walking out just before the big national show causing damn near every storyline to be changed and forcing the early return of another attraction...but it doesn't END their season.

And getting FIRED for it. Like he SHOULD be.

I mean, yes to the union thing, but that's not the point here. The point here is, Major League Baseball Sucks. And I *like* the new WWE commercials. Stick it to the man!

There was a Minnesota Twins player (Kent Hrbek is what comes to mind...) who was on strike during SummerSlam of that year, and it was REALLY funny... He was literally seated in the crowd with a big sign that said "I'm On Strike" or something to that effect.

I like it when they have a sense of humor about it.

True. He was worse than fired. He got suspended without pay. Had he been fired, he could've immediately signed on with NWA TNA. This way, he's not working at all, and by the time he's out from under the WWE contract, he won't have drawing power anymore. Hence, I'm GLAD he wasn't fired.

Contract Disputes don't end their season. Because there are no agents. Or unions. Or medical insurance.

Take a look at a 50-year-old baseball player and a wrestler the same age and tell me who you'd rather be.

The whole idea of a baseball union today is ridiculous. I mean, these guys make millions. Even the lowest paid player makes more than I do. And they are going to whine that they are not getting a big enough piece of the pie? Please! If they want more money, they should buy stock or start their own buisness. Baseball players are greedy bastards, and as much as I love the sport, I hate all of this crap. I mean, it is already bad enough that some teams have no prayer of ever being World Series contenders again because of money (Kansas City, for example) but now the players are whining about it too? Shut up and play dammit!
As far as wrestlers having a union, as long as there is ANY kind of competition I can't see that being an issue. Vince definitly takes care of his guys anyway, so a union would be ridiculous. Besides- if you want to get technical, they already have a union. SAG. If they are on-screen and say one line, they qualify. Not that I want SAG involved in wrestling at all....

"He got suspended without pay. Had he been fired, he could've immediately signed on with NWA TNA."

Austin is financially set and hardly needs to go work for NWA TNA.

"This way, he's not working at all, and by the time he's out from under the WWE contract, he won't have drawing power anymore."

Are you kidding? Goldberg has not been working at all for almost two years -- has his name value and drawing power vanished?

You should've seen the indifference he brought at PRIDE/K-1 Dynamite last night. The only thing that got any sort of pop was his catchphrase. Meanwhile, Don Frye walks out 20 minutes later and BLOWS THE HOUSE UP.

Bret did much better on the mic than I feared. Some of that is his now-retro style of talking. He said more than seven words at a time and didn't pause repeatedly for a crowd reaction.
