      Brian Kendrick & Paul London wrestling together again? Damn!! Why cant WWE hire them back and make them team up again??? WWE has said that they want to continue growing the tag team division

      well even if WWE does sign wrestlers from independent organizations, I just HOPE they utilize them correctly. I mean they’ve done NOTHING with several talents they signed. Hell they brought back Tensai and had him go from an animal to a dancing fool with another dancing fool. They also made a big deal out of signing Mistico aka Sin Cara and haven’t done anything with him. They need to bring back the Cruiserweight title for the smaller guys

        Agree. I would also love to see the Cruiserweight Championship back. It produced some great matches over the years until WWE made a joke out of it by making the midget bastard win it and retiring it.

          I totally agree. I mean they have Tyson Kidd, Sin Cara, amongst other smaller stature guys who shouldn’t be jumping in with guys over 6’4 and weighing over 240 lbs! That’d be like if I jumped in with Brock: It just shouldn’t occur!

        Gotta agree on that, too. It keeps interest in the smaller guys.
        Also, I wish they would bring back the 24/7 Hardcore belt. Those were some of the most entertaining matches ever. I’ll never forget Molly Holly smacking Hurricane Helms in the head with a frying pan.

      No wonder Bob Backlund was known as “Bobby Booby.” He was a great champ with a bird brain.
