  • Dick Cockwrinkle

    @Voice of Reason hahahaha FUCK drop bears are terrifying, I remember being warned about them when I was a kid! I live in the South East of South Australia. Riding to school in my Kangaroos pouch was horrible, I hated how disgusting and sweaty it got in the summer.

  • Justin sane

    Never mind I googled it…

  • Justin sane

  • voice of reason

    @ dick what part of oz are you from?

  • Bawb

    Annnndddd, back to wrestling.

    Good for Shane. I hope he succeeds in whatever he does, but I sorely miss the guy’s influence in WWE. I hope they beg him to come back in some way, shape, or form.

  • Dick Cockwrinkle

    Voice of Reason don’t go telling everyone how awesome Australia is all the bastards will wanna move here. We are spose to keep this shit secret! We gotta keep telling reminding them we have deadly snakes and spiders and surrounded by sharks!

  • SYM

    HERE COMES THE MONEY!

  • voice of reason

    i am not going to jump on anyone here but i think national pride is a good thing now misfit will say “yes america is the best country in the world” and that is great now i’m an aussie & proud of it and i can say “australia is the best country in the world” it all comes down to geographic locations if i lived in france i’d say “france is the best country in the world”

  • rabid

    Never in my days have I seen or thought i would see a more politically charged message board on a pro wrestling website.. lol

  • Max

    misfit you’re an idiot for thinking that a continent (America) is a country.

  • dan

    screw both you bitches, I’m english and I’m saying, fucky ou both

  • keylo

    misfit del rio explain how it is the greatest country when half cant afford health care, highest rate of homeless, not working etc

    here’s how great yous are, while watching a doc about ur healthcare system a man was waiting ten yrs for an hernia op he couldnt afford the 22 grand to get it done in a normal hospital ok. Right 5 months ago I needed one, same one as the old usa man and (1)got it done in a private hospital, 2 with a 50inch hd telly in my own room, 3 room over looking Dublin Bay and in the poshest part of Ireland, 4 cost me 5 and a bit grand, oh did I mention that this private Hospital that only charged me a 1/4 of what your fellow country man was told is AMERICAN OWNED.

    So tell me if your the greatest at what is it you think your the greatest at ? as its sure as hell not looking after your own, ah I know, would it be the greatest at producing the greatest amount of whores and pornstars, strippers, young and not so young forced to sell their pussies on the street to make ends meet and self centered greedy bastards

  • misfit del rio

    @ cc, no ignorance here, and yes America is the greatest country in the world, I enjoy all the freedoms I have. And the rest of the world is in bad shape as well. Look at Europe if you want to talk about financial trouble. There isn’t any other country in the world i’d rather live in than the United States and I’m willing to wager that if you’re from here you’ll have the same sentiment I have. And I was responding to Max’s comments, no way I’m letting anyone speak ill about the greatest country in the world. Ignorance is bliss…..

  • CC

    @Paul, what the fuck are you talking about?
    They are offering American made films to the Chinese on demand market, so how is anything “Made by China”?
    Its exporting American product there, not getting things made there.

    As for Max, shut up you idiot. Nobody is losing their empire as you claim, as there has been no such thing for decades now.
    The world is the world, its not run by any one country. All I see from someone like you is someone crying because their country has not amounted to much.

    And Misfit, nope, America is not the best country in the world. No country can lay claim to that, especially when America is in such dyer financial condition.

    National pride is one thing, but ignorance is another.

  • D2K

    A big reason why WWE stock has fallen is because Shane is no longer VP of Global Media Relations in WWE. He got out while the getting was good and took his talents elsewhere. Good for him.

  • misfit del rio

    @ max I see jealousy is all over you like a disease. Relax guy, going to give yourself a heart attack, and America is the greatest country in the world, remember that.

  • Max

    Its about time that China takes over the world. The US reign has been long enough. Time to move on and let the stupid anglo saxons (Americans, Canadians, British, and Australians) cry like babies because they will lose their shitty empire.

  • paul

    Yea more shit going to china. Welcome to america made by china

  • Dave

    At this rate, Shane will have more money to his name than Vince. Considering how much his WWE stock has fallen.
