Fair enough. I can understand the points you have made. We've both voiced our opinions.

"But at the end of the day, it's totally cool that we don't agree. I really have no wish to be unpleasant. You are a longtime great contributor here and I recognize that we can't all agree on everything. Right?"

Of course. If sites like this existed in bars or coffee shops rather than online, people would get less defensive because we love to argue with friends in bars and coffee shops. I think sometimes people put too much weight on message board posts. I mean, if we all agreed on everything, what would be the point of this bored in the first place?

Kudos to RP squared for having his life together and living a relatively normal quiet life that looks quite enjoyable and nice.

I'm not aware of any facet of the professional entertainment industry where a paying gig doesn't take precedence. btw Watts isn't showing up either.

Watched it with my wife last night.

Aside what has already been mentioned, my wife made a couple of observations. Piper looks like Mark Whalberg, and his son resembles Ethan Hawke. The make-up on the show was awful. Shiney faces all around.

She commented on how rough Flair looked, and asked about his age compared to Ppiper.. So we looked up Pipers age. He's 59, according to Wiki. Bret Hart turned 56 today. I thought Piper would have been much older.

I watched it last night too... interesting but fluff.

Is anyone else struck by how emotional Flair is? Someone made a joke in the YouTube comments that Flair cries every time he's on camera now.

However, it strikes me each time and in a way, I find it quite human. Especially when it's talking about the business or seeing his friends from the past... I find it kind of sweet, as unmanly as that sounds.

Is it simply that he's so distraught over retiring or is he really that sentimental?

Flair performing was how he got "love." Even when he played heel, he felt "love" because the fans showed him appreciation no latter how dirty a player he was (that was like "unconditional love").

He went to the bar, he was worshipped by the boys, the fans, the girls. That was "love."

Being told that some were just using him had to be like a kick to the gut. The look in his eye said he wouldn't accept that. Telling him that was like telling him he wasn't "loved."

It's easier for Flair to love and be loved by the masses from a safe distance that to love and be loved up close. Being forced to sit in the same room, or house, or share the same space with someone without running off, however, means there's a chance he'll be rejected.

Ahem...
