I didn't notice last night, but what the hell is wrong with the camerman? I feel like I'm going to throw up...

This man proves once again that diamonds are forever and so is Ric Flair...honestly this is what a majority of the wwe roster lacks...verbal skills, Batista on the same show got chokeslammed by Taker and he cut a monotonous dull promo where he didnt once raise his voice, put a bunch of mid-carders with Flair as their mouthpiece and watch their stock soar

Like your thought Sonny. Problem is coming out of that scenario is a forgone conclusion Ric Flair would be the biggest star coming out of that. And then you've used what would probably be the biggest run 3/4 would ever be involved in, in roles where the audience would not be able to connect with the characters.

But it worked for Chris Benoit.

So maybe the guys just have to know how to work. Which, with the proof provided over the last 5 years by WWE, they are incapable of providing chances for the best workers in this country, let alone the world.

Anybody know why every time HHH has a big match where he's not suppose to go over, there's always some debilitating injury in which he's unable to overcome? It always seems to be the time when the next guy is suppose to get the spot.

Was watching Survivor Series 02 the other night and remembering how much I was markin' out in the Garden when Steiner debuted. Just glad I wasn't the only one. If his build wasn't as imposing as it was, I wonder if HHH would have worked around his misgivings at his age, the same way he protected Batista?

With that said, what were the plans for Wrestlemania before HHHs quad injury? Or if he was scheduled to go over Cena?

Not sayin' he fakes shit, but I'd want to spend time with my family if I just had a baby. Unless he's in that same hotel in Birmingham wit the satellite hook up, wackin it.

I do think the idea of Cena losing the title to his tag team partner with whome he shares the titles is an interesting dynamic should Michaels win the match. It's like when Tom Brady put over Peyton Manning three weeks ago.

Anyone who catches ESPN and sports media forcing the comments Peyton made after the superbowl as shots at Bret Favre, believe it. The Colts are scheduled to visit Lambeau in 2008, and if you don't think it's a marketing ploy, you're a fool.

Pro Wrestling aint the only sport where the talent promotes future events on the mic. It's amazing how something so small and subtle like that will turn into one of the most watched regular season games in NFL history. Believe it.

I didn't mind Batista's interview on RAW. He was acting coy, as if the chokeslam didn't bother him, while also making it pretty clear he'd get back at Taker soon. The problem I had was that they kind of rushed the booking by executing the chokeslam (probably to get the attention on RAW rather than SD), even though Batista and Taker stood side by side at the end of the show.

I guess I see your point Steven, but still I mean Batista is just one of many who are lacking the mic skills that come so naturally to Flair, I mean I could probably name 5 guys who stink on the mic for every 1 guy who is good

I think we've all seen Flair do dozens of better promos. He probably did 20 better in 1985 alone.

And I give Carlito credit for holding up and helping sell the emotions without much dialouge. His expression and demeanor went from careless to shock to concern to reflective in about 90 seconds.

In poor booking Carlito might've rolled his eyes, become defensive and combatant or smirked and called Flair an "old coot" as he walked away. Instead he took it in and before the scene cut away he was stunned and speechless.

Mic skills don't ever go away. Flair will always bring the emotion and the charisma to any promo.

I hope it actually leads to something rather than just a spot where a kid got bitched out by a crazy old man angry he lost to Jeff Hardy.
