Can you blame Paul for being pissed? Bischoff practically siphoned most of the talent from his company. I wouldn't be too pleased either if somebody raided my company and bought my resources away like that.
Originally posted by mountinman44I think his quote just about sums it up. Better Bischoff than one of Vince's kids.
Sorry but Paul's quote isnt that weird or bad at all. I don't read anything like 'fuck this' in there.. I can almost see him smile that evil smile and say those words..Just like we said..who would have thought..the 3 of us in one company.
Raven on the other hand.. Iíve always gotten along with him. He paid me a lot of money when I worked in WCW before. I have no complaints.
Now that sounds like someone who doesnt thrilled. 'We got along because he payed me'
I am sure many people will have much better opinions than these little quotes. Too bad we cannot hear them all...

Neither do I. Look closer. What I read into it is if Vince can put aside their past differences and hire this man who tried to put the WWF out of business (and almost succeeded), then anything can happen.
And would you rather see Vince's children in this role? Honestly? I didn't think so.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed...! I think it all depends on whether they're going with one heel GM and one face GM... Bischoff could make "trades" with another heel GM- but he could do an invasion of Smackdown if the GM is a face... it presents a bunch of interesting scenarios. I'm tempted to not read the spoilers...
I don't read too much into Paul's quote. Paul seems like the type that he doesn't care, as long as the money is coming in.
But the issue is that you have so much bad blood under one roof. People hating Paul for not paying them, people hating Arn and Flair for holding them back in WCW, people hating Bischoff for pushing old farts while the youth was used as curtain jerkers. Bring Russo back for real and you have some serious bad blood between people in the back.
I don't know how any company can function with that much negative history and bad blood. It just seems like a formula for disaster.

I'm of the school of thought that they can make anyone a star that they want to, and make the fans believe it by manipulating certain factors (clean wins, making segments important, associating them with bigger names, well produced hype packages, etc.)
