Hulk says Bret drove down wages:
In a recent interview with the UK’s Fighting Spirit Magazine Hulk Hogan criticized Bret Hart for accepting low pay when he was champion and driving down wrestlers’ future wages…
“The main-event guy made the most money when he had the belt. When I was the (WWF) champion, I made the most money. It was an old rule that Vince (McMahon) Sr. had that, thank god, was passed on for quite a while. That changed when Bret Hart became champion; he’d work for a lot less than anybody else, so it changed everybody’s pay.”
Hogan also says Bret has turned his back on him in recent years…
“The last time I saw [Bret], he was flying around in my Learjet with me, and playing with my kids in the pool. Then, all of a sudden, we’re not cool.”
WWE wants Alex Jones in Swagger’s corner?:
WWE have reportedly contacted Libertarian radio host and activist Alex Jones to be in the corner of Jack Swagger and Zeb Colter at Wrestlemania. Whether you like him or not Jones has a massive ego and will probably not pass up the offer, however the company should probably be aware that if they give him a mic there’s no way he’d follow a script. Perhaps that’s what they’re looking for, some controversy.
All that being said Jones was initially upset at the Zeb Colter character, suggesting it was a tactic by establishment Republics the McMahons to marginalize Libertarians and further hijack the image of Tea Party to look like no-issue xenophobes.
Apparently part of the reason WWE created the Zeb Colter gimmick was because of the press coverage surrounding Jones’ second amendment rant on CNN’s Piers Morgan, and Indy wrestler RJ Brewer’s coverage for anti-immigration views.
Of course following’s Swagger’s recent arrest the match itself could be pulled.
Sunny says sorry to WWE:
Original Diva Sunny recently sent a letter to WWE apologizing for negative comments she made about the company in a shoot interview with Kayfabe Commentaries. After the interview WWE pulled the plug on her rehab, the first time they’ve removed the offer from a former star.
In the interview Sunny said the company moved her to a cheaper rehab facility to teach her a lesson for getting arrested during Linda McMahon’s senate run.
In her letter Sunny admitted that the real reason she was switched was because the first facility itself suggested she needed a lower-grade and stricter experience.
She said her comments were made out of anger and frustration and when she was not taking her medication. She said instead of accepting her own shortcomings, she projected her anger onto WWE, which was wrong.
It may however be too little too late.
