Bill Watts?

He was so stuck in his outdated ways...
He was good for WCW when they brought him in in the 90's, but he took things too far in his direction. It may have been nice had he simply provided some levity to the operations, but Watts should never have been given full reign.

He ripped up Jake Roberts' 1.5mill per year WCW contract up back in1992 and gave him 200,000 per year base salary.

Apparently Jake set up the deal with Kip Frey but Frey has released by WCW and Watts didn't get along with Jake.

Watts screwed over a lot of guys at that time.

Fyi...C.M Punk leaving WWE is not a work. He was reportedly upset with the way he was being  booked and furthermore he was pissed because of the poor booking of his former ROH partner...Daniel Bryan. It got to a point where Vince himself is handling that situation and he scolded both Vince and Stephanie for letting it get out of hand. Both WM and elimination chamber ppv's had to be rewritten. Punk is well off and can make huge income in AJPW and anywhere else overseas. Hes pissed because of guys like Batista and Brock being brought back part time for big money while others like DB have been passed over.

Monte, that came straight from the source.

Thats the hidden message in his infamous pipe bomb when he said hes the voice of the voiceless. 
No one  else has the balls to speak up and know one can say shit about his work rate. Hes worked through injuries and leads the roster with the most worked dates per year. I can understand Vinces worry.

Theres alot of talk circulating in WWE that Alberto Del Rio is going to leave WWE once his contract expires due to being relegated from a Smackdown main eventer and world champion status to being someone used to give Batista momentum.

I dont blame the guy, i wouldnt want to be associated with anything WWE creative are putting out right now. He's just one of many that are being savaged by the lack of perspective being put on certain characters.

Sad that the workers have very little leverage with vince because of nowhere to go.  Man I hate VKM. 

Seems to me that professional wrestlers need to start talking with "Actor's Equity."

They tried unionizing over 30 years ago, but those leading the charge were blackballed. Jesse Ventura and Roddy Piper are two of the best-known examples of that. The closest wrestlers have come to equality is having agents represent them the way that athletes and actors have agents.

Not surprisingly, Piper and Jesse were two of the first wrestlers to do this back in the late 80's. Jesse hooked up with Mike Braverman and Barry Bloom after he filmed Predator. Since then, many of the bigger industry names have gotten agent representation, with Bloom representing quite a few of them at one point.

"Actor's Equity" is an existing union representing stage actors.  Since professional wrestling is a stage show with performers on a stage, it would seem logical that they should represent the wrestlers.  Rather than start a new union from scratch.

Oh, I agree. However, promoters have historically frowned on the idea.

Pro-wrestlers are athletes and actors, and get the benefits of neither.

They also need to implement some kind of healthcare system.

The irony is that Vince used to take care of his top talent when it came to medical bills, even though they were the ones who could afford it. The mid-careers and below were screwed.

You would think the WWE would take care of their talent more.

Every employer has frowned on the idea of unions.  You have to get the political will of the country behind you to impose it on employers.

So far he's been called out by Phil Baroni, Mayhem Miller & Tomy the Green Ranger. He could make decent coin fighting one of these bums in MMA. Not saying he would win, but theyre great choices for testing the water if hes serious.

Just watched the vid of the Rise and Fall of WCW and wrestlers talked about Watts bullying them.  Ron Simmons said he would actually hit guys.  WTF?  He was a big guy but even I wouldnt have let him smack me.

I would think twice (or even three or four times) before hitting Simmons. I've heard enough stories about him in real life altercations.
