    Damn. Forget Cena, Roman, Hogan, Bryan...

    ...the biggest star WWE has is the guy who edits these tribute videos.

    Farewell, Gene.

    Yeah, unfortunately it’s one of the best things they do.

    They did OK with presenting Hogan. Didn’t make it about him, and he looked respectful. Got an OK pop,but not as thunderous as he used to.

    Yeah, my fear is that they were going to tie it into some angle ... have one of the heels come out to threaten Hogan.

    Kinda like how Punk interrupted Lawler's return from the heart attack, and Taker's tribute to Paul Bearer.

    Hogan killed it. He has his faults but he killed it tonight.

    "There's a 300.5 ounce Samoan standing in front of you."

    What the fuck? Is Nia Jax 18 pounds?

    Someone needed to turn her mic off. Overall, I’m trying to think it there was a Samoan wrestler more terrible than Nia Jax. Cannot come up with one.

    Yokozuna when he was wrestling at about 600-700 just before his death?

    Fair enough, but before that, Yokozuna was really talented in the ring. Nia has never came close.

    Was it weird that the only dead legend he didnt mention was Dusty?

    In general he was good, real good. RIP Gene.

    I was thinking the same thing. Especially next to Mr. Perfect.
