“I just received my first WWE Alumni newsletter as all my contractual/legal obligations to WWE end in two days. It was by far the best professional move that I ever made going to work for WWE in 1993 and I am grateful for the quality of life that they helped facilitate for my family and me. By the way, the newsletter was very well done. Hopefully, those alums in need take advantage of the opportunities that WWE is presenting them.

I did not watch the WWE presentation of Battle Ground live as I was in the midst of a 600 mile drive home from the cornfields of Iowa but it got me to thinking that WWE might want to consider selling the radio rights to their PPV events to Sirius, for example, for those of us who are travelers to some degree. I’d have loved to have heard the event on radio. It would be new money for WWE plus it would keep more people connected to the brand. And no I don’t think that it would harm the WWE Network whatsoever with the once a month PPV’s airing on radio.

It was wonderful re-connecting with the Steiner Brothers who I had not seen together in way too many years. They individually went into the Pro Wrestling Hall of Fame at the museum Saturday night in a moving ceremony especially when Scott spoke of his family, friends and career. Rick and I had a great time catching up on the old UWF days both working for Cowboy Bill Watts who Rick said he loved working for and respected the structure and professionalism that Watts demanded. Rick is now a successful real estate broker in the Atlanta area and also serves his community on the local school board.”
