I am loathe to start my own threads, but just this once, I'll throw this out there, if only for the surprising news about my WWE stardom:

WWE star says reporters don't know what they are talking about in Michael Vick case

Unless my mind is playing tricks, they've added a 'disclaimer' that it's a parody since I read it earlier today - but I thought your point was well made.

OTOH, it totally figures that no sooner than you become a WWE star, you're pulling this omerta crap on us marks.

And if you're a "WWE star", and not a "WWE Superstar", does that mean I can only see you on Internet Heat?

It's funny, but comparing wrestlers to dogs is a little bit asinine.



To those who say people wouldn't look; they wouldn't be interested; they're too complacent, indifferent and insulated, I can only reply: There is, in one reporter's opinion, considerable evidence against that contention. But even if they are right, what have they got to lose? Because if they are right, and this instrument is good for nothing but to entertain, amuse and insulate, then the tube is flickering now and we will soon see that the whole struggle is lost. This instrument can teach, it can illuminate; yes, and it can even inspire. But it can do so only to the extent that humans are determined to use it to those ends. Otherwise it is merely wires, and lights, in a box.-Edward R. Murrow

You're right. Dogs are treated much better and I don't think one dog could say what Cena's been saying on talk shows with a straight face.



Kevin Kelly: "Mr. Austin, would you like to comment on Wade Keller's Take that endorsing the XFL hurts your anti-authority character?"

Steve Austin: "Oh shit, he actually said that? I thought the boys in the back were ribbing me!"

Kelly: "No, he really said that. Did they tell you the part about you sitting in the stands, looking all skeptical?"

Austin: "AHAHAHAHAHAHA. Yeah... oh man that was too much."

Seeing as most wrestlers (Austin and Bret jump to mind) compare themselves to horses ("once Vince is done with you, off to the glue factory, etc") it's not much of a stretch, probably

Wow, that's in pretty poor taste.

As far as poor taste goes...well, it's tough to beat real life at this point (Cena and Chavo interviews, I'm looking at you)

Making light of the Benoit situation, however remote or 'funny', is just wrong. Not cool.

It was making light of the Kennedy/Finlay/McDevitt/Dr. Black situation. Did I intend to compare wrestlers to dogs ......... no. Well, yes. But mostly I was just comparing Ken Kennedy to an idiot and wrestling-as-dogfighting was just a fascinating, Pulitzer-worthy, flawed subtext.

I did like it much, much without before the disclaimer, but I guess that means a lot of people were confused, which is kind of awesome.


Let's see what a dog himself has to say:

Not a terrible parody, albeit a double-homicide & suicide, plus the savage destruction of Man's Best Friend probably ain't the ideal fodder for knee-slapping comedy. But to bring the great who's-to-blame-for-all-these-deaths debate back to wrestling, I wonder if the answer isn't so simplistic that we tend to overlook it:

Maybe the wrestling industry simply attracts people who like to take insane risks in their lives -- both personally as well as professionally -- in numbers far greater than in the general population?

I'm a firm believer in different jobs attracting different kinds of people. Not ALWAYS, but FREQUENTLY... people who are attracted to a career as a trial attorney are people who enjoy arguing and debate. Accounting attracts people who enjoy number-crunching and minutia. People who enjoy being in control & telling others what to do are more likely attracted to a career as a policeman than, say, carpentry.

Wrestling probably attracts people who are decidedly NOT risk-adverse. It attracts people who greatly enjoy being perceived as larger-than-life superheroes. They'll readily sacrifice stability & long-term health with their bodies -- in exchange for immediate gratification & personal glory. For them, the trade-off is worth it.

Maybe people like that -- obviously not all, but a considerable percentage -- are just more prone to engage in excess, take chances, and make decisions that seem terribly destructive to others.

This doesn't absolve McMahon / WWE from blame, but does somewhat reframe the backdrop.

Just a thought...

I was going to say something about Vince forcing Stephanie to breed, but it just seemed creepy and distracting.

Thus, why the weekly ratings report is hardly a meaningful measure of how doomed everyone claims the WWE is.
