    I just thought of another one that would be gold: the story of Daniel Puder's foray into the wrestling world, with a focus on the incident with Kurt Angle and the punishment he received in the Royal Rumble.

    The steroids trial and the abuse of the ring boys are the biggest stories for DSOTR to cover, but will there be much left that isn't on the cutting room floor after the lawyers get their hands on the edits ?

    I can see them doing the Abdullah Hep C story, Bill DeMott's bullying in developmental and Heyman's running of ECW. I'd like to see episodes on the Muhammad Hassan storyline, WCW's involvement in Collision in Korea and the Act Yasukawa v Yoshika shoot.

    That was awesome! Dunno what it is but something about these old timers doin Promo's brings me back to that era.
    Wrestler's nowadays can't even touch that Promo by Tully.

    Apparently there's a free version of the WWE Network. Has anyone tried it?

    I guess crying like a little baby on social media paid off. Or his "release" was obviously a "work".

    Dunno how they were able to capture/record this but it was pretty funny.

    RIP OH & DBS.

    Would you agree that WWE from 2009 to 2012 were the best years? Not taking anything away from the Attitude Era

    You won't find many people that are going to agree with that outside of the folks that grew up with it, that period was where allot of the things that are badly wrong with the product now started to overrun what makes wrestling shows work properly.

    Long forced pushes for guys that don't warrant it, burying most people that get over on their own without Vince's approval, shitting the bed or purposely destroying stuff that could have drawn more money to maintain the status quo, the death of authentic sounding promos for the majority of the roster and so on. Not to mention how utterly terrible most of the the Divas era of women in WWE was compared to what came immediately before and afterwards.

    To me the best was the Golden Era, from the late 80s to early 90s, but I fully admit that may be the nostalgia talking, since that’s when I first got into wrasslin’.

    Sure, the women’s division was almost nonexistent, but the tag division was amazing, the IC title actually had significance to it, and even midcarders had memorable, long-lasting feuds.

    Then again, with Hogan constantly on top, they needed memorable midcard feuds to keep things from getting stale. One guy holding the world title for years just wouldn’t work nowadays.

    The FTR interview segment was SO good. The trash talk they had talking about the Young Bucks was awesome. I nearly chuckled how they talked about every Tag Team and did not mention the Young Bucks until Toney pointed it out.

    A work I'm going to assume, and considering the blubbing video took away the spotlight from wrestlers and other WWE employees who were genuinely let go, it's a fairly grubby work.

    Maybe harsh but Spud agreeing to it makes me think less of him.

    Just an FYI,
    WWE recently trademarked the term “Def Rebel” and will be releasing entrance music with that name as the credited composer. Seth Rollins‘ and Karrion Kross’ themes should be available for purchase soon.
