• Major Update Regarding RAW’s Future
Former WWF Attitude Era writer Vince Russo appeared on Legion of RAW podcast and gave a major update regarding the future of WWE RAW on the USA Network.
Here’s what Russo said:
“I’m going to tell you something. I’m going to say this; I’m not going to tell you who. I still talk to Network people in television because I’m a television mark. I have worked with Network people my whole life, you know, with Spike, and Turner and USA and the whole nine yards. I have learned a ton of television from Network people.
I had somebody tell me this past week, when it comes to the TV side of it, and I’m not going to speak for FOX. I don’t know about FOX, but I was told that WWE is not even a priority for the USA Network anymore.
And if it’s not a priority, I can’t imagine USA [Network] is going to sign them up again after this deal.
Now, don’t get me wrong. You and I both know wrestling. They will find another sucker. They will find a Network who thinks they are buying Rock and Austin. That’s what they do.
They thought, and again, I got this from inside sources; they thought the ThunderDome was going to turn the ratings around. And I said what you would say. ‘Okay, bro, it’s going to be nice at the beginning. People will tune in, but bro, it fits the same content. In 3 weeks, you’re going to be right back where you started’.
And they are not even right back where they starter, they are below that.”

• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (November 10, 1991) – Old School Wrestling Legend Passed Away
On this day in 1991, we lost Old School Wrestling Legend Dick the Bruiser (Real name: William Afflis) at the age of 62 due to Internal Bleeding.
Dick the Bruiser was a huge name during the territory days of the 50s, 60s, 70s & 80s.
Dick has yet to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, which is likely going to happen as part of their annual ‘Legacy Wing’ inductions.
He was, however, posthumously inducted into the WCW Hall of Fame during the ‘WCW Slamboree 1994’ PPV.
† REST IN PEACE DICK THE BRUISER
