The Hawks Nest

First I would like to apologize to everyone (especially the one person who responded to my column) that my column is late. My computer fried and I had to get a new one. And Now...

The Hawks Nest

Part I
When is it enough? Ten years? Twenty years? I will be one of the first one to point out Ric Flair was still styling and profiling well into his forties. Hogan still ruled in his forties. Terry Funk was more hardcore than ever in his sixties. The question that should be asked is, why? With the amount of young wrestlers out there, why are we forced to watch the same matches over and over. I know these younger guys need better training but how are they going to get it when those old goats won't get out of their way. Kevin Nash is still main eventing? Even Jeff Jarrett is reaching those times in his life that he needs to move over. A.J Styles, RVD, John Cena and Batista need room to grow. This is an age old question with wrestling fans that may never be answered. I would love to hear your opinions feel free to leave comments.

Part II
The Royal Rumble is here and gone. The side matches were not the greatest but the Rumble itself....was great! I wasn't sure they had it in them. They even managed to get the over done, double toss out, worked out. The only thing I don't understand is, with so much talent why did some people double dip? Angle, Edge and Michaels. Why did they need to be in the Rumble? Don't get me started with Coach being in it. Where were the rookies? Chris Masters? Hell they could have even "invited" OVW or Ring of Honor to fill a few spots. Oh well lets hope they go in the right direction at WrestleMania. They followed well with Raw, Smackdown could have used some work. I am going to cut it short this week. I still look forward to comments. I will respond this time now that I am cooking with 2 Gigs of RAM and 2.5 Gigs of processing speed.

Till next week Fly Straight

How Long is too long? A shadow of things to come. Will the "game" over stay his welcome. What do you think? Here's what he thinks...
HHH recently spoke with freelance entertainment writer Anthony Greff and below are some of the hightlights:

- Says he started bodybuilding at the age of 14 and chronicles this in his book, as well as other techniques he uses when working out.

- Says that doing a fight scene in a movie is much easier than performing in a wrestling ring. He says there is no room for error in the ring, but with movies, they are very carefully scripted and in a fixed enviornment.

- Hints that he may be involved in the new “King Conan” movie.

- Says he is a scapegoat for the internet to bash and being married to the boss's daughter (Stephanie McMahon) just encourages that. Comments that he tries to do his job to the best of his abilites and it makes him mad when people say he 'holds people down.'

- Says Booker T and Rob Van Dam aren't main-event players because they are missing that piece of the puzzle that allows big wrestling fans to connect with them.

- Believes the right decision was made in regard to the "Montereal Screw job" and feels Bret Hart was in the wrong.

- Agrees with Ric Flair's comments about Mick Foley being a “glorified stuntman.”

- Says he is a "wrestler" only, and he attends creative meetings and production meetings because he wants to, not because he is required to.

- Finishes by saying he will be in the business for the rest of his life, however, doesn't envisage being in the ring at 55 years old like Ric Flair .

I say he can try to push the blame away all he wants. But the truth is if he truely believes in whats best for the business he will listen to the fans. As the old saying goes if the shoe fits... wear it
