    RVD is “Bad for Business” and a waste of money

    • Mr. Baker

      Damn Matt, I thought you just had it in for the Mexicans?? Wait…I just figured it out..Its cuz Ricardo is with him…Seriously tho, I wanna know why you think he’s bad for business…I’m intrigued

      • Matthew DeAngelo

        I think it’s funny that people think I have beef with Mexicans, also apparently if you don’t say Latino that’s when your labeled a racist. I know your just poking fun so it’s alright.

        • Mr. Baker

          Oh it’s Latino??? So am I now racist???

          • Matthew DeAngelo

            I’m sure your not, I think the 2 guys who said I was for saying Mexicans just had something against me. Ironically they called themselves Mexicans so it’s a mute issue

          • Mr. Baker

            I wanna run an idea passed you, tell me what you think.’Would a TNA/ROH merger be the key for there to be solid competition with WWE, just from a television show aspect, not company

          • Matthew DeAngelo

            On that one, I truly think a TNA/ROH merger would kill ROH. Just my opinion

  • raul cruz

    It’s a shame this guy put his body through hell all those years and rarely got a taste of the big success.

    Granted when he did get a taste he screwed up by getting busted with pot. But others seem to screw up and bounce right back.

    • Mr. Baker

      Couldn’t leave the Homie(Sabu) left to smoke alone…Loyal ? Yes. Stupid?Yes. But hey..at least he tasted it, even for a short time

  • Eyam Ova-Urazis

    He needs time off so he can burn one without the wellness policy hanging over his head.

    • Mr. Baker

      hahahaha…has it been 3 months already?? Or are they just making it known? even still if thats the case he should Burn a Redwood since it looks like He’ll be off TV until the Rumble or a lil before.. But hey , He’ll celebrate 4:20 cuz according to this he’ll be off…assuming He’s still with them
