Michael Cole Using Ex-WWE Star’s Entrance Theme, Bret Hart Critiques The Rock

— WWE commentator Michael Cole began using former WWE star Kerwin White’s entrance theme “Never Thought My Life Could Be This Good” at last week’s tapings. Chavo Guerrero portrayed the short-lived character in 2005, which was depicted as stereotypical, middle-class, white, conservative, Anglo-American man. The death of Eddie Guerrero led to Chavo dropping the character and wrestling under his real name as a fan favorite.

— Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson tweeted a photo Sunday of himself applying the Sharpshooter. Bret Hart, who popularized the maneuver, saw the picture and said he’s doing it wrong.

“I have a lot of respect for The Rock, but I’d be more than happy 2 teach him how to put the sharpshooter on correctly,” he wrote.

— Carlito defeated Finley at Big Time Pro Wrestling event on Sunday in Augusta, Maine. He said of his opponent on Twitter following the match, “I’m surprised WWE hasn’t rehired Finlay yet.”

Finlay was released by WWE March 2011 after authorizing the interruption of the American national anthem by The Miz during a house show, drawing ire from the National Guard members in attendance. He has regularly competed on the independent circuit since then.

    i remember whenever rock would apply the sharpshooter he’d sit down lookin like he was taking a crap. then he’d scream and throw his head back like he was in more pain than the guy in the hold. if this was against austin i think it happened right before he’d take a stunner and sell twenty feet across the ring

    Stockmaster, bret hooked it with his left leg and grabbed at the knees while sting hooked with his right and at the ankle. Brets always looked better,.

    To hell with Brett let Sting show him how to apply the Scorpion Death Lock!

    I think it’s more about the placement of the opponents legs.

    Rock applies the sharpshooter with his right leg, the way Owen Hart did it. He’s always done it that was as a tribute to him.
