What I like about 411's "reporting" is they always hedge their stories with a nice little "take this for what you will" or "apparently" or "reportedly" or "may have."

Tell that to WCW.

I hear ya, brother. 1wrestling does the same thing with their "There have been talks", "It has been said", "I have heard", "The word going around is", etc.

I always picture the folks at 1w sitting at their computers thumbing through this huge thesaurus looking for new and exciting ways to say "CHECK OUT THIS 4th HAND INFO SOMEBODY JUST TOLD ME!"

What's also enjoyable is when they spend a few news items creating and then refuting rumors. Such as:

"Right now, the current plan is to have classic Wrestlemania matches at WM XX, featuring Hogan vs. Savage, and Flair vs. Steamboat. Of course, with Wrestlemania being months away, plans could always change."


Then later that week...

"Currently Vince McMahon has no plans to bring back Hogan, Savage or Steamboat, as he doesn't want Wrestlemania to be an 'old folks show.'"

WCW did do worse. They hired Russo.

I fear that WWE isn't wise enough to see what Nash brings to the table (negatively) on the creative end. They stole his brilliant septic tank angle already.

The Big Bad: "Does Vince take the whole creative staff on camping trips in the Connecticut wilderness to help build team spirit?"

This is the best thing I've heard all week and an awesome idea. Brian Gewirtz must let David Lagana catch him as a trust-building exercise. Michael Hayes sings songs by the campfire. Kevin Dunn talks with his dork lisp. And Vince eats marshmallows.

I fear what would happen if Nash took a position on the creative team. You'll know he's booking the day Randy Orton pins Triple H with a Fingerpoke of Doom. (Randy Orton getting the pin after an opponent falls over? The possibility must make Matt Hocking's head explode!)

Of course, 411 is also posting the rumor that Nash would rather take a job cut and go reform the Outsiders with Scott Hall in either Japan or TNA. But would that really be such a good idea? Especially with Vince owning the rights to the Outsiders name now?




Admit it. You laughed too when you found out Brock was feuding with Sparky Plugg.

Well while I don't put too much stock in 411 or 1wrestling, they aren't talking completely out of their asses. Nash publicly stated on a radio show that he doesn't think he should have to take a paycut at this stage in his career. It was in the Torch, where Keller tore it apart for the sheer ridiculousness of it. Is ridiculousness a word? Meh.

Anyway, I won't fault a man for not wanting to move across the country to a colder climate so he can talk about others doing what he used to do for half the money, if that. Doesn't sound like a very tempting offer to me. And if he's set for life as everyone here seems to think, he's got even less inclination.



I'd tell you to kiss my ass, but I don't want to get it infected.

You forgot Vince telling scary stories by the campfire about his fight with the federal government.

No need. Stephanie already did that during the Smackdown 9/11 Tribute show.

Oh jesus, I can just picture Vince having Patterson roast his marshmallows. "BROWN! BROWN! BROWN! No! Now they're burnt! I WILL STRIKE DOWN THE FACE OF THE MARSHMALLOW BURNER!"

Wasn't Nash the one who coined the phrase "vanilla midgets"? That mentality suggests to me he'd do more harm than good...plus you never know who he'd want to have brought in.



Don't you hate pants?

I must reiterate how much I HATE the name "Taboo Tuesday". It just seems to lack creativity. They've had a lot of problems with names lately, though.
