    Maybe WWE could make it work by doing a Hall of Fame with a smaller scale theme park attached. I think it would be a draw. At least in the beginning.

    If they do end up doing a ride or show at an existing theme park, it would probably be Universal... since their programming airs on the NBC/Universal Comcast-owned USA Network.

    I believe the Artegon property would be a good place for this.

    Actually they do. I know about a couple lawsuits, but its deeper than lawsuits. There was multiple with Jerry "the King Lawler". I think everyone knows about Triple H marrying into the Mcmahon family.

    There was scandal with one of the WWE talent agents named Pat Patterson, but the WWE rehired him after he wasn't convicted. The catch is old time wrestlers actually witnessed the wrong doing. Pat Patterson was one of the 3 WWE people that accused of doing very terrible things and Vince fired all 3 fire for terrible behavior to put it nicely.

    The thing is some of the so called scandals involved a male talent and a female talent actually is hard to call it a scandal due and I'm guessing bairstow considered that part the organization itself despite it being a personal matter.

    There had multiple scandals with Vince himself without counting the rest of the stuff. I guessing Bairstow considered one of the wrestling angles a scandal, but that angle shouldn't have existed despite it being fake.

    I don't want to go deep into this topic for example or information though.

    Regarding employee fraternization scandals and leaks, it's almost too frequent to keep track of. There was of course the huge one before Wrestlemania this year, and a minor one even now with some developmental talent.

    Imagine a ride centred on one of these talents in a Disney park? Yeeesh...

    I'd hope it was interactive.

    You'd wait in a queue, passing wrestling memorabilia and numerous TV's where past and present WWE stars would be cutting a promo on you. You know telling you how they would stomp a mud-hole in you before throwing in a few insults before the scantily clad "Diva" staff would escort you to your little WWE buggy.

    Once planted in said "WWE buggy" - the ride would start. Within the first couple of seconds you'd be bashed on the side of the head with a chair. A bell would then ring and the scantily clad "Diva" staff would help you stumble out the "buggy" all the while trying to explain to you that you have been DQ'd. Suddenly you get rushed by three masked men (This is the interactive part). One would body slam you, the next would hit you with a running knee drop, and third would place you in the figure four. While in the figure four screams of "Woooo" would echo all around you. Once you are about to pass out, it will suddenly stop. As you stagger to your feet you'll get smashed by sledgehammer and quickly placed in a Tombstone pile driver. At this point a chorus will chant One----Two----Three..

    The "Divas" will promptly gently help you back to your feet and gingerly escort you into the ride gift shop where you can buy numerous WWE/Disney memorabilia and a memento of the ride. The Photo Pass and accompanying video will be tremendous.

    Are you saying that employees of most companies don't get together? Have you ever heard of the CP?

    Did that big celebrity hack from a few years ago ruin any careers or anything? No. Obviously a hurtful thing to those it happened to, but lets consider what happened to say, Olivia Munn. Her career has only gone up since her leaks.

    Vince McMahon's kingdom is a very different place that the rest of the world, he punishes as he see's fit and has let people go for less.

    No doubt, but isn't germaine to this discussion at all. He didn't release Paige because of the upcoming movie - so if he sees money in something, he can stick with it. Otherwise, with that leak and her relationship with ADR, she'd be gone.

    You're right about the movie, for all purposes she already is gone, she hasn't been on tv for months and will never be on again. She's released in everything but name at this point. I'm not really sure what we're debating at this point.

    I'll just say that the WWE is a wild and often petty world that would make any kind of ride one that has to be carefully considered.

    I just disagree that a ride can't happen because boobies.

    Is a WWE theme park going to happen? Of course not. A single ride somewhere? Possible but very unlikely. A physical HoF? Well, they were trying to get in into the spot that the steampunk restaurant is in CityWalk, but thats not going to happen. But its not because a female superstar might be nude on the intarwebz.

    The day Disney partners with the wwe is the day that I will have lost all connection to this world.

    Sorry, I didn't mean to imply it couldn't happen, just that they'd have to theme it very carefully and leave it open for "re-tooling".

    Part of WWE's move to PG was to open itself to potential buyouts. The target they wanted was TWDC.

    I heard this and the pg era has really expanded the worth of wwe. At this point i think vince would listen to buyout offers.

    Definitely. People come and go in the WWE on a constant basis. I think they should leave current stars out unless they are well established. To minimize the future need for re-tooling because let's say a wrestler flopped or just got up and left (like CM Punk) I believe they should stick with legends: Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, 'Macho Man' Randy Savage, Ricky Steamboat, The Rock, Shawn Michaels, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Triple H, Undertaker, Kane, Big Boss Man, Mr. Perfect, Andre the Giant with Bobby the Brain Heenan, Hardy Boyz, Dudley Boyz, Edge, Batista, and even Umaga!

    All individuals who made WrestleMania special in the many years, those are the ones that should be immortalized in a WWE attraction. Current stars like John Cena, Randy Orton, Sheamus, Roman Reigns, Bray Wyatt, Daniel Bryan, Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose and Brock Lesnar deserve spots in a WWE attraction as well.

    I thought the move to PG was due to Linda's political career. They didn't want to produce anything that could be used against her.

    Also if they team up with Disney the obvious choice would be to play Ric Flair's theme music in Space Mountain.

    If anything happens I think it will be a WWE Hall of Fame with a restaurant and gift shop located in City Walk or maybe Disney Springs.
