Heard about this a bit earlier. Hope he'll be fine. As the the show continuing, no of course I don't find it rude. People are paying to see a show as with the TV slot costing a lot of money.

that sucks. they should monitor his heart. cause it can happen again.

and for the show continueing? what we say in showbiz"the show must go on"

Hopefully he gets better, I think the article says he is doing well. I don't think it was rude for the wrestlers to keep wrestling, I think it's kind of a "the show must go on" thing and also it is the wrestlers trying to act normal to prevent the fans from panicking.

Hey, I first saw that story on Yahoo too. Do you also use Yahoo to sign into your e-mail address (i.e. @yahoo.com or @att.net, maybe even @snet.net)?

Well i feel if this was basketball and one of there commentators had an heart attack they would of not continued the game until he is out of the building

I had the honor of shaking his hand many years ago. Thoughts and prayers sent his way for a speedy recovery. Looking at the footage, Cole was visibly shaken up, that has to be a tough thing to keep going on with the show.

I do. They have some interesting articles.

I'm sure continuing the show isn't necessarily an esay decision, but between renting the venue, possibly refunding all tickets, television broadcasting, advertising, workers, employees (not just WWE employees, but venue and vendor employees), etc, etc, etc, WWE have a lot of financial matters to consider.

They continued the show when news broke that Benoit went on that murder rampage and killed his entire family so I'm not surprised here. I'm sure the king would want it that way anyway.

Yeah i use yahoo.com to sign into yahoo if thats what you mean

I mean using it for your e-mail address. I usually sign in via att.net (which redirects to att.my.yahoo.com) but sometimes that site doesn't work ("Internet explorer cannot display the webpage") so I just sign in through Yahoo.com, it's the same thing, but the layout is slightly different.

Yeah I remember that. Vince was supposed to be dead in the storyline (his limo blew up with him inside), but he came out to announce Benoit's death, saying that "on the show, my character, Mr. McMahon is supposed to have died, but in real life..." and then he went on to report Benoit's death.

Do you use Yahoo.com or att.net? I'm guessing you don't use snet.net since SNET was only present in Connecticut and was bought by ATT years ago (I still see some old SNET payphones laying around, there was one at CVS but now CVS built a new building and knocked their old one down).

Also isn't the videogame called Devil May Cry, not Devil Might Cry?

I think he would want the show to continue and the management know that about him. I hope he recovers soon.
