Default HBO goes behind Vinces back

According to a source involved in the process of HBO's Tuesday night piece on Real Sports called "The Sickness," the source told us on Sunday night that HBO attempted to contact Vince McMahon about using WWF/WWE footage for their piece on wrestling deaths. McMahon turned them down. The source went on to say that after McMahon rejected the usage of his wrestling library, they went to a wrestling person who created two compilation video tapes featuring footage of Rick Rude, Junk Yard Dog, Louie Spicolli, and Brian Pillman for a low sum/amount of money.

According to the source, HBO is not worried about using any WWF-related footage, claiming that they are not worried about using WWF footage due to "legal loopholes." The source did not want to be identified publicly.

I wouldn't give shit to HBO either, especially with them trying to cash in on it. It's bad enough with Real TV turning every crash or injury into a freakin comedy routine. Now HBO wants in on the action. And when they don't get what they want they turn to some paparazzi fucktard to supply it. What a crock. HBO is just as responsible for exploiting death and violence to make a buck. Soprono's, Oz and all that shit they get aclaim for is every bit as morally questionable as anything WWE has ever done in the name of ratings. Prolly worse than WWE in that regard since they can get away with anything and just say they're a pay channel. All they do is hide behind legal loopholes. Too bad nobody can realize what's going on. Liberman, Tipper et al. need to realize the problem isn't WWE or videogames, it's things that aren't at all intended for kids that are readily available to them. Hell, at least WWE has to be somewhat accountable for their product. Critical praise and "Legal Loopholes" are the only thing separating the two.

Fuck it, I'm gonna go watch faces of death 3 and then some porn now.
