Bound to happen....
Anyone hear of the scheduled"challenge" match? Whats his face, Shawn Micheals (I think) asked hogan to team up with him one last time for a match with some tag team. I dont knwo specifics cause I dont have cable and only watch smackdown on occasion anyways.
Hulk & HBK vs Hassan & Daivari will happen in around 8 hours time at the Backlash PPV.

It probably won't happen but if either Hulk or Shawn decided to turn heel, join up with the Arab-Americans & start spouting anti-US sentiments it could be a huge angle, even if it has been done many times before.

I wasn't really talking about a heel turn for a Hulk/HBK feud, don't really care about that, but if one of them were to turn heel it could be the big angle that the WWE need to help lift their current dull product.

BTW you didn't mention the best face vs face match ever, Brett vs Davey Boy Summerslam 1992. :P

it would be way too early to even start a heel turn, such a turn would really be lacking. first this is the first time they ever teamed, they need to build an on air firendship thats strong, before such a bond can be broken. the only person that could have turned and truly shocked the world would be hogan, but still it wouldnt be as good as hogans nwo heel turn. wwe needs to bring the iron sheik back to manage daviri and muhammed. really try to push everyones buttons in this story. take it to and over the edge, to piss of everyone in america, if they can get close to the sgt slaughter heel turn time but without and actual person turing on ameirca other than the already missle eastern heel group, it would be huge.

I thought the farewells from fellow wrestlers on raw last night was done well...

I said before, but eddies been a favorite of mine since his days at wcw, and I always enjoyed his antics at both raw and smackdown.

Another WWE Superstar Considered To Be On "Death Watch" By His Peers?
Date Added: November 16, 2005
Story By: Daniel Edler
Source: PWTorch Newsletter (Subscription available http://www.pwtorch.com)

-- In the latest PWTorch newsletter, editor Wade Keller states quite bluntly that there is apparently a top wrestler wrestling in the WWE today who?s considered to be on an ?unofficial death watch?. He doesn?t go on to further elaborate on who this wrestler is, but he does go on to mention how people need to do what it takes to keep him alive, even at the ?expense of box office receipts, storyline interruptions? and more.

-- The deathwatch, which is apparently no secret to most within WWE, is still possibly unknown to Vince McMahon, who would need to be informed. The un-named wrestler, should he pass away, would make the coverage of the shocking and tragic news this week of the passing of Eddie Guerrero look minor by comparison, due to his credentials.

-- This has been my first news post since the passing of Eddie Guerrero, and I would like to personally send my condolences to Eddie?s family and friends, both in and out of wrestling.

yeah, but kurt angle is a heel. Most people don't like him, even though he is the greatest wrestler to come into the wwe. I think most people wouldn't care, or care less about him than eddie guerrero. Though I would feel awful if angle died, because he really is the best.

Kurt Angle is an Olympic gold medalist, that would make him of more interest to the mainstream media than anyone else currently in WWE.

His neck is pretty bad plus there are all the roids/HGH & the painkillers he does. Here's an article that goes more into Kurt's problems:

Regardless of being heel or face, it wouldn't matter if he died because the fan reaction would be the same as all other dead wrestlers. He's entertaining us and you can tell that the crowd is entertained, or else the You Suck chants wouldn't be yelled during is theme music. It's the same with the Rock and Rocky Sucks back in the day, IMO. You hate the personality, but really you can't help but like the guy. They may say he sucks, but really if they were to see him in real life they'd praise him. Atleast I would anyway.

On the topic, I thought it was BS that he got the You Suck chants when he wrestled on RAW. That was in bad taste, IMO. You could tell he was obviously upset about Eddie and although the chants really wouldn't get to you personally, I just don't think it was necessary on a night like that RAW. That's my thoughts on the matter anyway.

Former ECW star Johnny Grunge passes away

Mike "Johnny Grunge" Durham was pronounced dead on arrival at an Atlanta area hospital this morning.

The only available details were he was at a friend's house in Peachtree City, GA, and was gasping for air and rushed to the hospital. The preliminary diagnosis from the hospital is that it was said to have to do with complications from sleep apnea.

Grunge and the late Rocco Rock (Ted Petty), as the tag team of Public Enemy, were the first major stars created by ECW in a program against The Funk Brothers. They became ECW's most popular act, to the point they were subject to a bidding war of sorts between WCW and WWF. However, taken out of the ECW environment, they weren't as successful.

Grunge, whose age is believed to be 39, was said by friends to have never been the same since Petty's death.
