  1. Hey Eric, you know why Flair having a heart attack is different than other tv show characters dying. #1 and most importantly, your show was live and things happen on live tv. With tv shows that aren't live, you know you're not witnessing death. #2 ties into #1, in wrestling your objective of THE WHOLE FUCKING SHOW is to have people suspend disbelief so people think what their watching is real. Regular TV shows do not do this because they acknowledge it's fake and pretaped. It's amazing Conrad either wasn't smart enough to call you out on this or doesn't want to corner you that badly.

  2. Just because I feel like Bischoff hasn't mentioned it enough

    Guy Evans has a book available

    Hope you guys had a great Christmas! <3
