Who is the oldest wrestler still somewhat active?  Bill Dundee?

Dory Funk Jr (75) and Mil Mascaras (74) both immediately come to mind

Bill is 73

I guess the video evidence is now overwhelming enough for me to just admit I wanted her around cause I've found her super hot since 1999.

D'oh.  I forgot about Dory.

I thought Dundee was a bit older than Mil.

Did the Boss Man ever do a shoot interview, or any interview, not in character?

I'm surprised WWE even does pre-show panels for Raw and SD. That has to be a giant money sink. Who honestly watches those? More importantly, who buys that network that otherwise wouldn't if those shows didn't exist?

Lawler did have a 40 year history of being a draw to back him up. 

Thinking about it...wouldn't Jerry have been a better fit, culturally, in WCW?

 

This may belong in the what if- but I always wondered what if Lawler had been given Ronnie Garvin's NWA title run?

And as it turns out, Lita is out of the company entirely.

Also, Linda's been nominated to run Small Business Affairs under Cheeto Mussolini.

I thought Lita was working in the Performance Center in some capacity.  Might have been an extended guest role.  But I liked her.  She wasn't that great but she seemed to care a lot about NXT.

For a brief moment Vince, Stephanie, Kevin Dunn were like "YES...WE'RE LEGITIMIZED...WE'RE NO LONGER SEEN AS A PRO WREST..."

Every article calls her a Pro Wrestling mogul.

Hahahahahaha.

Sarah (Dark Angel/Sarita) Stock replaced Sara Amato in the PC. Lita might've been a week-long guest they cycled through like they do often (Hall, Quackenbush, etc.). Lita was a road agent for a while, but apparently wasn't well liked.

I'm ready to be re-classified as an independent contractor.

I can't decide whether I'm rooting for Linda to take Kevin Dunn with her or not.

Kevin Dunn running production for the State of the Union would be incredible. We just need Trump to hir Russo to write his scripts and we are set!

Because nothing says "small business" like a global company worth $1.5 billion...

I hope she can at least get a presidential pardon for Mike Bailey.

What did Lita bring to the table? Last I knew her career highlights were a match with Trish, a trashy failed fashion trend, and cheating on Matt. Did I miss something?

I look forward to Mike Pence smashing Trump with a steel chair and then the Democrats rushing to Trump's defense to turn him face. For months, we'll get Pence giving speeches about listening to a "higher power" and threatening to overthrow Trump.  Trump will partner with the Democrats and Ivanka will mysteriously go missing. She'll be put on a cross on the White House lawn while Stephen Bannon tries to marry her only for Hillary Clinton to run on the lawn, smash everyone with chairs and save Ivanka. Pence will give a speech from the Oval Office where he promises to reveal the Higher Power during a ceremony in the Rose Garden. 

The day comes, the Higher Power walks out into the Rose Garden......

Spoiler

"IT'S ME HILLARY!"

(You thought it'd be Trump, didn't you?)

 

Vince Russo will make a great White House staffer.

You pretty much hit the nail on the head.

Not necessary when Trump's chief strategist is an accomplished documentarian.

I wonder who the agent is that is such a fan of the low blow finish?

I re-watched Nak v Joe from NXT Toronto and Joe gets the upper hand with a blatant kick to the crotch. This comes after AJ defended his title on SmackDown for months using low blows and Miz just retained to IC title with a couple of punt kicks on 'Mr Ziggles'

Is this one person booking these or does the team think this is the best cheap heat for a heel finish?

I thought Lita was generally ok-ish as a commentator, but the quality of her work varied wildly from segment to segment.  Overall, I don't feel like it's a loss.

Isn't Jimmy Valiant older than Dundee? I know Boogie Woogie has at least 4 or 5 matches a year.

Boogie is 74 but it's been like 30 years since he's taken a bump, I'd imagine you could wrestle forever if u don't bump.
