- Chris Jericho, who appeared on last night’s Dancing with the Stars finale, wrote the following on Twitter: “DWTS was one of the best times of my career. Every dance was a joy! @CherylBurke I love u in so many ways!! Thank u my dancing Yoda”

– Internally it’s believed that Randy Savage will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame next year in Miami.

– Judy Carter, who teaches stand-up comics and corporate speakers, wrote a blog on comedyworkshops.com about how injured WWE Superstar John Morrison came into her office on Monday morning. Morrison has hired Carter because he wants to be funnier in the ring, funnier in his interviews and is looking to “jumpstart a speaking career.”

    @ CC. Vince is not WWE, and he need to learn that. Macho is one of the greatest. Before HBK should of been Macho… Don’t get me wrong HBK deserves his spot, but he has just retired. Whats the rush???

  • me

    forget funny, the guy just needs to learn to talk in general without sounding fake and forced.

    how about 2005 when they had Hogan, Piper, and Paul Orndorff

    @Bill,To be fair, Jericho is in a class above the rest when it comes to comedic timing, and mic skills, one of the best promo guys and entertainers the business has ever seen. Only wrestlers arguably better are The Rock or Austin. Hard to ask other wrestlers to be like him as you either have that personality naturally or you dont. On a smaller note, even though he will always be a mid to low carder, Santino has that natural comedic timing that other wrestlers lack and/or try to force upon their character. Those that lack the comedic/entertaining personality are always those that seem really cheesy and dont have the same effect on crowds.

    Cena, although his “supercena” character has become very stale (blame creative and vince not cena himself), is one of the top promo guys WWE has today and thats why he will be in the main event for many years to come. Figers crossed that in his fued with The Rock at wrestlemania, that the WWE creative actually allow him to change up his character and turn heel. Bottom line is that parents buy his merchandise for the kids, he sells more merch than any other wrestler and he is a great ambassador for WWE and creates alot of money. Probably the reason why they wont change his character anytime soon.

    @Kenn, what about 2010? The main inductee was Ted DiBiase. I like Ted, but he’s no Macho Man. As for Morrison, he is pretty goofy. I wish he had that style of humor that guys like HBK or Chris Jericho have.

  • The Killswitch

    I think Morrison is a funny guy, he just needs to work on his delivery. That’s why he comes across as goofy.

  • Sammo

    Hasn’t Morrison been criticised by WWE bigwigs (including HHH) in the past for being too “goofy” on TV?!

    I don’t see how hiring a comedy coach is gonna rectify that!

  • Gary

    besides what was done the WWE honored “the Butcher” and he never wrestled one day in WWE, but yet Macho gave (and still gives with merch sales) to wwe…he deserves it and now wth his death (sad but true) vince notices it….still feel McMahon smiles countin these Merch sales after his death SMH

    Correct, Savage should be in the Hall of Fame already!!!

  • CC

    Coulda, shoulda , woulda … nobody can predict what happened, and there are untold wrestlers who should be in the HOF but aint, but there is only so many people that can be inducted every year.
    Yes, celeb inductions like Carey and Rose are a waste of a possible induction, but even if they were not inducted, thats only two places free and there are still hundreds of worthy contenders for induction.

    Nobody but Vince and Randy (and those close to them) knew why they fell out, so for all we know, Vince had genuine reasons.
    At the end of the day, people can call Vince all the names under the sun, but I’m betting that each and every person on here has had somebody do something to them thats caused them to never forgive.

    My guess is that if they inducted Savage last year he would have been overshadowed by HBK, and the year before he would have been overshadowed by Stone Cold

  • Symbiote

    Savage should have been inducted when he was still alive! The WWE dropped the ball on this one!!
