Trish Stratus Confirmed To Induct Lita

Lita confirmed on Twitter that Trish Stratus will be inducting her in to this year’s WWE Hall of Fame:

Ted DiBiase On If Ultimate Warrior Deserves HOF

The Million Dollar Man Ted DiBiase discussed whether Ultimate Warrior deserves to be in the Hall of Fame, in a recent interview with Inside The Ropes:

I mean, I don’t hate the guy. It goes back to anybody that watched the DVD, The Self Destruction of the Ultimate Warrior, that really tells the story. Obviously, if Vince has decided he needs to be in the Hall of Fame, I’m not going to begrudge that and obviously I’m going to be there. I quite frankly, don’t know how many of my peers believes he really deserves it because…it’s not just about being the star it’s about a number of things, it comes back down to the gratitude thing.

None of us would be stars, when I was inducted I had a list of people that I needed to thank. Harley Race was there in the crowd and I pointed Harley out. I think that’s it, the overall lack of gratitude that the Warrior has shown over the years. Where it makes most of us go ‘Who do you think you are?’ Doesn’t he realize that none of this would be happening if it wasn’t for a lot of help from a lot of people. I think that’s pretty much the consensus. I don’t begrudge him. I’m not that kinda guy to hold a grudge. If I had to feel one thing towards Jim Hellwig, I guess it would be pity a little bit. I’ve heard other people say that he just generally has the attitude that it’s about succeeding in life and you’re going to have to do what you can to get ahead and if that means stepping on people along the way then so be it. That, in my opinion, is a very sad commentary and a very poor way to look at life. So am I going to begrudge him for going into the Hall of Fame? No.

I heard that Linda McMahon is inducting him. You have to ask yourself why? Why is Linda McMahon inducting him? Maybe he couldn’t find anyone else to do it.

DiBiase also discussed whether the Undertaker’s streak should end:

People ask me, I have mixed feelings. One part of me says leave the streak, it’s an honor to who he is, and how his character has endured and to Taker who’ll always be remembered. But you know, the other part of me think it’s like when Andre The Giant allowed Hulk Hogan to beat him at WrestleMania 3, he passed the torch. I feel that’s one of those things that has to happen. After all, it’s a business. You’ve got to have new stars and you need people to pass the torch to build those stars. I don’t know, but either way I’ll be happy.

Batista Splits His Pants During RAW

In case you weren’t looking closely at Batista’s ass, as well as having a dud mic during RAW he also ripped his pants. You can see it as he exits the ring.

Also during RAW if you watch the ring apron you can clearly see Undertaker exiting the coffin to hide under the ring as it’s waving and being pulled about.

He used a hidden door within the coffin to hide under the ring, and then re-entered when Lesnar slammed it shut again.

    For a so-called religious person, Ted DiBiase always sounds very bitter, jealous, judgmental, and it is obvious that he holds grudges. Nowadays, when Hulk Hogan talks about Ultimate Warrior, he sounds like a gentleman.

    DiBiase even calls Warrior, Jim Hellwig. His name was changed in 1993. DiBiase must be a slow learner. Whether he likes it or not, it is none of his business. The truth is that his name is Warrior.

    He is not the only person in the world who has changed his name. I know a singer called ?, and it is his own choice.

    He should get out of that religious world if it does not suit him. He really sounds like a hypocrite.

      Jake Roberts called him Jim too, earlier this year, in his apology for the misunderstood tweet on Warrior…
      I think Dibiase is not bitter at all; he is just giving his opinion. I remember his interview about Andre, he didn’t have anything bad to say…

      • MercuryIsGod

        Some people who knew him as Jim seem to have a hard time calling him by his 1993-2014 name. Jake Roberts had very little contact with Warrior after 1992. DiBiase should know better.

        When Hulk Hogan is asked about Warrior, nowadays, he puts all the blame on himself. He does not bring up the past. He wants to make peace. DiBiase – who is a religious person – acts differently. This is why, to me, he sounds like a hypocrite.

        He was also very harsh on Orlando Jordan. He said that he could not work. Is this how a veteran is supposed to act? You make fun of someone else? Why not give advice to people instead of putting them down repeatedly? I do not understand that mentality.

        DiBiase was a great wrestler. There is no doubt about that. However, as a person, I do not like him at all.

    Ultimate Warrior must really be THAT big of a douchebag that everyone feels the same way about him lol

    Batista later tweeted that luckily he was wearing his good underwear, and this wasn’t even his skinny jeans xD

    Nice magicians’ trick used by The Undertaker… Another part of his cat where you can’t botch badly because thousands are watching live.

      Owen Hart loved him. They were personal friends. Martha – who seems to hate wrestling – even said that they loved each other, and they often roomed together when they were both in the WWE.

      Tony Atlas loved Ultimate Warrior.

      Randy Savage was a personal friend of his, too. They ate together, trained together, laughed together, and Randy Savage is on record as saying that they really got along.

      The truth seems to be that people resent Warrior for making money, and then leaving on his own terms. In fact, this is something that Tony Atlas said in his shoot interview. He praises him for the exact same reason why people seem to resent him.

      So, he was never one of the boys… Not everybody enjoys people. He liked – and still likes – to be left alone, in his corner. He knew where he was going in life, he made his money, and he is still in great shape.

      I do not agree with everything that he has said about everybody, but when wrestling is concerned, Ultimate Warrior is a legend, and in the few years that he has been around, he made more money than most.

      Owen Hart has become some kind martyr due to his unfortunate demise, but he, too, wanted to leave the wrestling business at a very early age. He just did not have the time to do it.

      What would people say, today, if Owen Hart had left in 1999? People would feel robbed, but not because he died. Because he quit the business “too early.”

      People still bring up the fact that Stone Cold quit for a short time. Everybody seemed to love CM Punk. Now that he has quit, many have turned against him.

      They want the wrestlers to perform until they die – and some of them do. Some of them choose not to do that foolish thing.
