      Did Prince Jr. state he was a wrestling fan before being signed by the WWe? Then again he was stepped over and ignored until he quit.

    He was a RAW guest host before he was a company employee, and he'd said on more than one occasion in interviews that he was a big wrestling fan.

Actually, his guest host gig was AFTER his first run on creative. His second (and current) run came after he guest hosted.

Was I right? Isn't that what Russo did?

That is what Vince Russo did but the rest of the thread points out other wrestling fans who've been hired since.

I think there's probably a difference between fans and fanboys. I could see why they wouldn't want a guy who reads at a third grade level, lives in his mother's basement and still plays with action figures at 36.

I'm pretty sure that if I were hiring for the WWE, I would tell dirtsheet writers that if they applied. It wouldn't have to be true, but it's a nicer way of saying "We wouldn't touch you with a 10 foot pole".

I believe it about as much as I believe a pretty girl who tells a homely guy "It's not you, it's me."

OSH, you're exactly right about the lack of good face teams. The only ones that I can think of are Moore/Kidman, Palumbo/Venis, and possibly Keesh/Funaki. But that's all I've got.
