    What I noticed on Raw or Smackdown is that HHH was experimenting with the two shows. At least HHH is making an effort to try to change the formula around. If Vince is in charge of creative let’s say then no attempt will be given to make alterations on the programs.

    Great, now I can start watching RAW again!

    If Vince is back in charge of creative, I’m concerned that a lot of talent will be getting another 90-day vacation in the form of non-competes.

    when the sale goes thru HHH will have to find a new ass to kiss

    @ Brian ——- I read somewhere that the government was looking to do away with these companies ability to hit people with 90-day no compete clauses, so that may be coming to an end.
