    Think you guys are taking it a bit out of context. For nascar fans; look at the increased safety methods since 2001. They had 3 drivers killed on the track in the previous year; then the sports biggest star (Dale Earnhardt) gets killed in the biggest race (Daytona 500) and they can no longer ignore the need for a better protection system. And how many have been killed since then?

    I think he was just saying that if wrestlers keep working loopholes like this, there needs to be a major disaster to make any major changes in the future.

Well anyone in 2000 who said they hoped Dale Earnhardt would die in a crash at the Daytona 500 the following year would have merited the same kind of response.

People are aware of the problem now - why should it take yet another major death for it to be addressed? And that's even if you grant the assumption at the center of InVerse's statement: that WWE lets guys start over from scratch on wellness violations if they sign a new contract. Someone would have to provide some evidence before I personally would be willing to believe that to be true.

WWE *did* show Kurt Angle the door. I believe - though I'm not sure - that the company has told Jeff Hardy to leave and get cleaned up in the past. I have the same obvious doubts regarding WWE's sincerity that I think most people would, but regardless of the company's motive I think some positive actions have already been taken. I certainly hope it doesn't take another death - a death on live TV no less - to force the additional actions that might need to be taken.

To hell with Booker and Umaga coming back. I could care less about either. I'd rather see Paul London or Colt Cabana return.

I like both Booker and Umaga, especially Umaga. It seems a shame, though, that Umaga might return to WWE without first seeing what opportunities might present themselves to him in TNA or ROH.

I disagree. Triple H is the guy who's in charge or hiring and pushing new and current talent, and yet Cena, Punk, and any number of other wrestlers currently on roster and working the road have done a better job of talking up new guys.
