The only reason Lawler is still around is because he helps promote Vince's nasty tastes and what Vince thinks will be the "next shocking thing" that will supposedly get more people interested in his product. And instead it turns more and more people away. It's really sad when one man has so much power that he can time and time again hoist his disgusting fantasies on millions of people, and then have the balls to say "It's just what the fans want."
You are SATAN, Mr. McMahon. This is exactly why I hated your Attitude era WWF and only watched WCW. I now pray for their return.
The winner of the Rumble belongs in the title match, irregardless of what feuds are going on at the time. That's the way it has always worked. Anything else is just personal feelings on HBK's part, in the storyline.
