    Dwayne Johnson is nowhere near where Rampage Jackson will be when the totals for The A Team are in.


I would doubt that. I don't think Quinton Jackson is going to be the bankable lead in any movies any time soon. And Game Plan made almost $150 million. Ultimately I don't think the comparison has a lot to do with Dana vs. Vince.

To be fair, a lot of that could be due to the retarded Missouri laws. It's not just the wrestlers who have to have licenses in Missouri, even valets and the time keeper have to be licensed. It's just generally a pain in the ass to put on an indy show in MO. There are plenty of indy feds operating out of Illinois, Kansas and Iowa, however. (Missouri laws treat pro wrestling as if it were a legitimate sport, even dictating how a match can be won. Technically, Kurt Angle didn't beat Mr. Anderson at Lockdown because escaping from a cage isn't a legally recognized method of winning a bout.)

Of course, it's also much easier to book an MMA card than a pro wrestling card. If an MMA fighter sucks, he gets knocked out and the crowd loves it whereas a short and/or bad wrestling match just pisses the crowd off.

I can't even remember where this thread was going, I just wanted to take a moment to point out the stupidity Missouri's laws regarding pro wrestling. Of course, it would be more productive to stop whining about it and start pointing out to the state assembly how getting rid of most of those laws would financially benefit the state government.

With all due respect, you're picking out the most trivial point he made about message boards and saying that's his main gripe, when it's not. The rest of his opinion, in my view, is completely valid in MANY cases...even on this board.
