    He used to like Jericho and Matt Hardy too, but both of them did something to burn their bridge of respect with Corny and he now complains about their gimmick, matches and promos and how they are shells of themselves. He's not entirely wrong for those two either...

    It's going to take a while to get used to the new Travis Heckel drawing style. Agreed about all the comments tied to Owen and they raise a good point about where Bret stands on the whole thing. My guess is it will be a mixed bag for him, he will be happy that Owen's name and legacy will be back on display in wrestling but at the same time he is not a fan of Martha.

    I thought that too, but that isn't Heckel. They are using someone else now. Don't know why. The new artist is good but I prefer Heckel's art.

    Weird because they still promoted Travis' name on the Drive Thru just posted last night. I guess the artwork this week was provided by Matthew Kaplowitz. Travis was out sick but should be back next week from what it seems.

    Heckel's work was perfect for the show.

    Temporary cancellation in progress: WWE Has Removed Any Sign of Ric Flair From Their TV Programs

    I say temporary as we all know the WWE doesn’t actually care about this stuff but will bow to public pressure and then one day he will quietly be back in their merchandising, promotions etc. The fact his image is being replaced by Ultimate Warrior proves that.

    How are they so blind as to how toxic he was?

    Can't say I am surprised, but like @WarEagleRK just pointed out The Ultimate Warrior is far from a saint himself.

    They aren’t blind…they just don’t care.

    I wonder how much merch sales they make off The Ultimate Warrior? I would rather put my money towards the upcoming Owen Hart merch.

    My complaint is naming the award for courage/humanitarianism "The Warrior Award". He doesn't deserve anything nice like that attached to his name or legacy. From all accounts for most of his life he would have just ignored or made fun of people who have to overcome great odds. He gloated that Bobby Heenan got terminal cancer.

    not this this helps but thats not even what warrior asked the award to be about. he wanted some recognition given to the guys that set up the ring or do merch or create the video packages or entrance music, etc

    Anyone catch the Dark Side Of The Ring episode covering Chris Kanyon? I watched it yesterday and I honestly don't know what to think of it. I really don't remember much about him (probably because I never watched WCW) and I don't even really remember him in his brief tenure with the WWE. What I got from it most was the AEW talent taking some digs at their competition for how they treat their roster going back 20 years ago and further. Almost making the point that if Kanyon were working in the business right now, he would have a home in AEW and jump ship from a promotion like WWE. I do get their point and agree with it, but at the same time I get the counter that Dark Side production painted when they showed the comments made by John Cena and Ric Flair on the Howard Stern Show about how Kanyon was a nobody. Sad to hear of his outcome regardless.

    Yeah I saw it but like you had no idea who he was. They did paint the picture that WWE didn't like him.

    I haven't watched the Dark Side Of The Ring on Kanyon yet, but I first remember Kanyon as a member of the WCW job team Men at Work. They were a team who would get some moves in, but ultimately lose and he had talent. Then he got thrown into that Moral Combat feud as Mortis with Glacier and Wraith which was a waste of time. He was talented, but unfortunately his peak was during 99-01 WCW when their booking was a mess and then during the WCW invasion of WWF when they did their best to bury non-WWF talent.

    That will probably be out late tonight or tomorrow, I think Brian Last confirmed that they are recording The Experience today. I'm guessing they will be more heavily focused on the Dark Side Of The Ring Episode since there is some backlash being made specifically on the WWE and the wrestlers that were promoted on the show.

    Exactly, my quick summary of him was: Chris Kanyon was his own worst enemy wrestling in the wrong era. I think out of all the people they interviewed, DDP ended up being the most honest about Kanyon. There is some continued backlash with Flair, and now Cena and Taker are facing some heat for their segments in the show.

    I think the Jersey Triad team with Bigelow and DDP was Kanyon's peak. It was the rare thing WCW had in their dying days that could have worked in a different climate.

    I never understood WHY they did that whole box/Boy George/lisping thing after a year and a half of rehab. It STILL makes no sense.
