Well,I have to say I'm a little shocked they had him do that,sure it's a cheap promotion but he didn't have to read those things on TV.

What are your thoughts?

I'm not surprised... and I agree fully with those statements...

Butt Hurt never drew a dime and was a robot in the ring... Vince wanted rid of him...

Foley = Stuntman...

A stuntman I happen to like very much... but still...

I'm not shocked that they aired excerpts from the book about Hart, but I am shocked they read the ones about Foley. WWE and Hart haven't been on good terms since the Screwjob. Foley has always been on good terms as far as I know, so yeah I am shocked....

I think they read the Foley part just because Foley is a name the average fan can recognize aside from like Buddy Rogers.

duh... Its too show the fans that the shit they write is not all roses and chocolates... Instead of letting the IT sites and all that bullshit "think" they have the inside scoop. They are trying to convince fans that they tell the real grisslies. They tell the real truths. In other words there trying to get more fans hitting there site rather then the PW's and PWF's

Ric Flair is not a bitter old man.....he is a rich old man that is still in the wrestling business.....

Bret is a bitter man.....I like him, but he is a bitter man....has been for seven years now.....

Foley should really drop the bomb making a book without holding back like he was forced to on his books. Even admitted it on TV.

Right, and who are you comparing him too? Austin, Hogan? In that case no one drew a dime compared to them. Not HHH, not Benoit, not Eddie, and certainly not fucking JBL. Hart did fine for business, he just didn't go as far as Vince wanted to push things in order to beat out WCW. Bret said it himself, he didn't like the peepshow the WWF became. Besides, if he didn't draw then why did WCW want him so badly? He had to have something to offer.

And Flair has nothing to say anyway. Since when has he been a draw? He was WCW's main man for a while and look where they are now. If you're going to call anyone a flop, Flair should come to mind. His first WWF stint was kinda short, and he's bounced titles around like a basketball. He's pretty much had the same routine in the ring for 15 years and it's getting smaller considering he's older than nearly anyone in the business. But if you ask Flair, he'll tell you he's pretty much the God of wrestling.

I will always say that Flair was a great influence on the business. But anyone who says that they're the best and they're being serious (Hart included), is a loudmouthed asshole who needs to wake up. There is no such thing as the "best" ever. Styles have changed and so has the business. If you ask the oldschool guys like Thez and Sammartino, they are going to tell you that today's stars are a joke, including Flair. So for two guys who's days have come and gone to sit and argue about who's better is just bullshit.

an exeprt from gerweck.net:

- Many backstage found WWE's attempt to milk the negative publicity surrounding Flair's book to be classless. While it will likely help sell books, the feeling was that taking shots at wrestlers who contributed so well to WWE is not the right direction to goo, especially since promoting what was good about the book, combined with Flair's overness in the wrestling community, could have been effective as well.
________
i agree, overstating the negative isn't as good a move.
