I can't see this vetting anywhere, as many of the above had careers in various different promotions long before they ever stepped foot into a WWF/E ring. Take Sabu for example.

Yep, the lawyer involved has lost against WWE before, some of the 'spots' those guys do almost guarantee a head injury of some kind, proving that the injuries are the result of the WWE and not all the other promotions those have worked for seems pointless to me, I do feel sorry for them getting hurt at work but surely you don't carry on getting bashed to the head after doctors advise against it, many will have been told just that.

TNA's Broken Matt Hardy is just soooo good, the TNA crowd are really behind him, that 'OBSOLETE!' chanting during Jeff's entrance on Sunday's show was excellent, hope this gimmick lasts as it's one of the best in wrestling at the mo if not the best.

Born on October 10th 1947 - Martin Ruane, better known as Giant Haystacks

As well as his famous feuds with Big Daddy on the 'World Of Sport' wrestling, he also appeared at WCW under the name Loch Ness

The will either be an entertaining nostalgia trip, or total car-wreck TV!

World of Sport Wrestling returning to ITV

World Of Sport Wrestling

British wrestling returns to ITV with World of Sport special featuring WWE legend Jim Ross - Mirror Online

"Names already confirmed to follow in the footsteps of Rollerball Rocco, Mick McManus, Johnny Saint and co. include 'Liverpool's No.1' Zack Gibson, the 'Masked Mexican' El Ligero and the 'East End Butcher' Sha Samuels.

They will be joined by top grapplers such as 'The Black Country Beast' Dave Mastiff, Leeds powerhouse Rampage Brown, 'The Pound For Pound Best' CJ Banks, Birmingham dynamo Ashton Smith, 'Delicious' Danny Hope and the formidable Scottish siren Viper."


They tried televising UK wrestling back in the 00's, but the problem was, it couldn't compete with the glitz and glamour of the WWF wrestling, and the audeince 'didn't seem to get it', so it ended up being unwatchable

It seems that Goldberg is back in the WWE, trash-talkin' with Lesnar

Presumably this is going to be the main event at the Hell In A Cell PPV is a couple of weeks time
