I hardly ever post here, and I find myself watching RAW and Smackdown less and less, but I still look at the news sites, and this caught my eye and really got me thinking. I'm sure it was on a bunch of sites, I got it from 411wrestling, who got it from the Observer, but basically this "news" is just that...Bret Hart and Vince McMahon are on speaking terms again. Now...introductory info aside, here comes the rant (a rant that has been done many times before, I'm sure, but nevertheless...)

How is this news??? In all of this, the better story would be HOW they could still be on speaking terms, with all that transpired between them. The fact alone that they are talking again, is not news for a couple of reasons...

a- Celebrity or not, people talking just ISN'T our business. Example...do any of you care that I'm gonna talk with several friends tonight, and probably will email people too? I didn't think so. Bret and Vince talking, in and of itself, isn't a story until something comes from it that needs to be released to the public.

b- Nothing will come of this. Bret did not fit in to the WWF/E when he left in 97, and he sure doesn't fit now. Stroke aside, the business has moved on, and Bret just really doesn't have a place in the "major leagues" anymore, except possibly as a manager/mouthpiece, but I don't see that happening.

So with a and b, is this really worth reporting? I don't know, what do all you think?

I agree with the philosphy that dumb celebrity 'talks' are pointless to report, but the reason this is actually reported on a news site is because of their history. Notwithstanding the fact that Bret ain't coming back (most likely), this piece of information sadly IS news because of the likelihood of it ever taking place. Sure, you and your friends talking tonight isn't news at all, because they're your friends. If the Green Goblin started talking to Spiderman on non-hostile terms, I'd sure as hell call it news. At the least it's an "interesting piece of information", if anything.

Its not news but for every 5 people who view it as not news there are a 100 who view it as news and take it as "Breat Hart is coiming back to teh WWEEEE!!!!!" and that's why they report it as news.

Iceman, that sig cracks me up. Well, I really don't see how a reenactment could possibly be as big a news story as say an ACTUAL serial sniper in our Nation's Capital. Seriously.

I was quite excited to see it--not that I thought it meant Bret would be coming back. It does however give my inner mark a small glimmer of hope that I might someday see Bret put a more pleasing finishing touch on his WWE legacy. Realistically, it may never happen and I respect Bret as a man for standing up for what he believes in. All that said, I'd feel as happy as a little boy again if I saw Bret on my screen. Maybe that's how I know when a show is good--when I'm as excited or happy as I was when I started watching at age 11, it's a good show.

I was there as well, equally pissed to be on the side of the arena NOT flashed by Dawn Marie. I also loved how over Shark Boy was. People, OldFuzzy isn't exagerrating.....the crowd was chanting for Shark Boy all night long.
