    That be worse than this :

    The Montreal Screwjob was a controversial, purportedly real life professional wrestling event in which the owner of the World Wrestling Federation, Vince McMahon, double-crossed the defending WWF Champion, Bret Hart, during the main event match of the pay-per-view event Survivor Series held on November 9, 1997 at the Molson Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. A secret manipulation of the match's result (known as a "shoot screwjob" in professional wrestling parlance) was devised by McMahon and discussed with Hart's match opponent, Shawn Michaels. It was decided by McMahon that Michaels would win the contest, and that the WWF title would be won from Hart no matter what. The plan was executed when the match referee, Earl Hebner, under orders from McMahon, called for the bell to ring and ended the match as Michaels held Hart in the Sharpshooter submission hold (which was Hart's signature finishing move), even though Hart had not submitted. Michaels was declared the victor by submission and crowned as the new WWF Champion. It would mark the last of three WWF Championship matches between the two, having previously headlined the 1992 Survivor Series and WrestleMania XII together.

    The screwjob has garnered a notorious legacy both on-screen and off, and was partly chronicled in the documentary film Hitman Hart: Wrestling with Shadows (1998). The far-reaching impact of the incident led to its adoption as a theme in matches and storylines of the WWF's "Attitude Era" and the creation of the character, "Mr. McMahon", the evil boss. It has been suggested by some that the entire incident may have been a work created by McMahon and Hart.[1][2] Nonetheless, Hart was ostracized from the WWF while McMahon and Michaels continued to receive angry responses from audiences for many years. The relationship between Hart and McMahon later healed, however, culminating in Hart's induction on April 1, 2006 into the company's Hall of Fame, where he thanked McMahon for the opportunity to perform for the WWF. Hart returned to live WWE television on January 4, 2010, where he served as Monday Night Raw's guest host. On that night, he and Michaels, whose personal differences had pre-dated the Montreal Screwjob, aired their grievances with each other on a personal level, and showed respect for each other's careers on a professional level. The segment ended with the two men shaking hands and embracing in a genuine, real-life reconciliation, bringing closure to the incident after more than twelve years.[3][4] Both men sat side by side to discuss the Montreal Screwjob in detail on the WWE Home Video release, Greatest Rivalries: Shawn Michaels vs. Bret Hart (2011).

    That was a sad day in professional wrestling as Bret Hart didn't reach his WWF heights in WCW.

    I'm officially confused!

    Who are you talking to and what does your post have to do with the discussion?

    There are quite a few words in this thread.

    No clues, please (let's leave that kind of thing to attention seeking, wannabe itk's). Just a straight up answer will do.

    Ah, right.

    Thanks for the answer.

    So I wasn't going mad and couldn't have been expected to know what kd was talking about. The genesis of your disagreement was in another thread (that I obviously haven't read)!

    Demba Ba may be forced to stay at Newcastle after demands from his advisers for extra payments pushed his fee above £12million, writes the Sunday People..

    The Senegal striker has a £7.5m release clause written into his contract which can be activated as soon as the transfer window swings open on Tuesday.

    But Sunday People Sport understands that Ba’s advisers want between £3m and £5m to conduct a transfer – ballooning the fee to a whopping £12.5m.

    Potential buyers also face the nightmare task of trying to satisfy Ba’s wage demands. He is believed to want a whopping £85,000 a week, having turned down Newcastle’s improved offer of £70,000.

    All in all it adds up to a massive gamble on a player who may not even pass a medical because of a long-standing knee problem.

    The demands of Ba’s advisers have annoyed players and officials at St James’ Park.

    A Toon source said: “There are people in the dressing room who believe Demba Ba has let Mike Ashley and Newcastle down after the way they helped resurrect his career. They’ve been kicked in the teeth.”

    If Ba does leave Newcastle are likely to miss out on Marseille striker Loic Remy, who favours a move to AC Milan

    Ba's advisors/agents do seem like money grabbing bastards happy to engineer as many moves as possible to get a slice of the action each time, but that statement is ridiculous. Ba was not in a situation where his career needed resurrecting, he had a solid half a season with West Ham and I'm quite sure several PL clubs were interested. If he was in need of career resurrection then why would Ashley agree to a 7.5m release clause? Even for Ashley that would be dumb.

    Bullet dodged, bloke sounds like a complete **** and I guarantee his knee would implode the minute we signed him. In addition I do think he is a tad overrated. Be interesting to see how he does at a top level club

    that move weakens Newcastle more than it strengthens Chelsea.

    And who cares if Newcastle are weaker this season? They're not catching us up, that's for sure.

    Not sure it weakens Newcastle, it could allow Pardew to switch to formation he used last season.
    Buy a £10m rated wide forward, allow Cisse to be the main goal threat - Ba has had a negative impact on Cisse this season compared to last season when Ba was more willing to play wide. Newcastle side could turn out more balanced with Ba out and someone else in.

    Cisse isn't scoring, that's why he is wide at the moment. Last season he was central and scoring, while Ba was wide. That's what Pardew does, rotate the non-scoring forward. Ba is scoring. Pretty much the only one.

    Maybe it means Cisse can go in the middle, and they are adding Debuchy. Perhaps it will balance the side.. I do get the feeling that Pardew will miss the goals but not miss the person.
