The Rock is not just a huge movie star, he's one of the biggest stars in the entire world. If you don't think that it's a smart business move to have one of the hugest stars in the entire world going head to head with our biggest franchise player on the main event of our biggest show of the year, that's just dumb. It's going to come out, it's great business. It's great to have him back, but it also really makes me angry. Angrier than you can even imagine because I want to be in that spot. I want a full time guy to be there every single night doing what we do best, giving back to our fans. Live events, pay per views, Monday Night RAW, Friday Night Smackdown, name it and we do it every single night. But it's a special attraction to have guys like that back and it's just good business.
Bruno Sammartino Reveals His Future with WWE
During a recent interview with The NB Show, hosted by Nick Buzzelli and Bryan Chechak, WWE Hall of Famer Bruno Sammartino had the following to say about his future with WWE:
Here is what I agreed with them on. They are going to do a video game on me, they are going to do some DVDs of my best matches and all that kind of stuff. I think they are going to do some merchandise like new dolls and stuff like that. I don't know what else. T-shirts, they are going to do all these kind of things. So I'm sure, even though I have no commitments, they will come to me about appearances here and there. But again, I wouldn't sign any agreement to any of that because the way I worked it out with them is that I'd be willing in some areas, but all they can do is ask me and then I will have the right to say yes or no. I don't want to be in a situation where they could call me and be like 'hey you are going to appear on Monday Night Raw in Tennessee next Monday' or 'you're going to be in Boston.' I wouldn't go for any of that. If they called me for one of these things, I'd have to see if I was up to it at the time and let them know.
