    Hmm wonder if this is FOX8’s way of profiting the most from the WWE franchise before the IPTV WWE Network launches late this year/early next…

    Most countries put on a after show and enhances WWE Raw. I remember watching one on The Score in Canada and was really well done. Fox 8 could benefit with an aftershow

    What’s this garbage about Hulk Hogan and Rowdy Roddy Piper having a re-match at WM30 – 29 years after the first one?

    Or Ultimate Warrior taking on Jake the Snake Roberts?

    Bring back the Great Bolo, Killer Karl Kox, Walter (Killer) Kowalski, Skull Murphy, Brute Bernard, Andre the Giant, Tex McKenzie… ooh, they’ve all passed on, haven’t they?

    A shame. Wrestling was so much more fun back in them days in the Sydney Stadium and Festival Hall…
