Will Hall, Hogan,and Nash be coming in with complete creative control over their characters, like they had in WCW?
I read somewhere that Hall and Nash have a reduced road schedule written into their contracts, but nothing about booking power ... If that's the case (and the trio have no final say on storylines) than I don't think their backstage presence is going to be as detrimental as some people fear.
I mean, Vince McMahon is a lot of things, but he is NOT Eric Bischoff ... A jock-sniffer who wants to "act tough" and hang with the "big name stars", who doesn't worry about the consequences of such actions because someone else is signing the checks.
This is Vince McMahon's company and the money is coming out of HIS pockets; I can't believe he would let these guys run roughshod over his locker room and just let them steer the company in whatever direction they want just to suit their own needs. No, they are coming in on HIS terms, and will play by HIS rules.
Of course, if I'm wrong and McMahon HAS signed over complete creative control to these three knuckleheads, then the entire WWF is doomed.
I didn't think that Bret was really 'fired' or 'screwed' for a long time. That is, until he did that 'talking to the dead' or whatever it was. That proved, right there, that Bret Hart is dumb-ass, and a whiny little bitch, if you will.
