No. He's been a huge fan of the Japanese style for years, and plans to work New Japan, All Japan or Noah.

Having seen the improvement in similar wrestlers who have done the same (the former Prince Albert / A Train being the most notable), it will probably be a great move for him.

that was what i was asking.. because it's not all made up, the Hall of Fame induction ceremony is real, so the Slammy awards could be as well...

Yeah, and so is Eastenders and Corrie, but that doesn't stop 10-15 million people watching it, does it?

WWE Thread 2010 - The "Age of AWESOME!!" begins!!!!

Slammys that the public vote for are legit. The original awards in the 80s were worked by Vince and co, but not anymore.

However, that doesn't mean that they don't "guide" the public into how they want them to vote. The same applied to the Cyber Sunday and Taboo Tuesday ppvs.

EDIT - re the Hall of Fame, the Slammys are actually more legit. The HoF will not be legit until Bruno Sammartino is in (and to a lesser extent, Randy Savage). I don't believe that Lou Thesz or Danny Hodge are in either, which wouldn't matter so much if it were purely a WWE thing. But now that they're inducting people that never worked for the McMahons, they have to be in.

EDIT 2 - From what I can gather, it's only the "Superstar of the Year" Slammy that is being voted on by the public, so that will be the only legit one this year. The "Diva of the Year" is being decided by a Battle Royal, so the less said about that the better.

Doesn't Bruno Sammartino get asked every year if they can put him in? I know he's turned them down twice.

One day he'll crack...

WWE Thread 2010 - The "Age of AWESOME!!" begins!!!!

Yes, they definitely want him in, but he refuses to be a part of it. For it to be a true HoF, they should put him in regardless of whether he turns up or not. The fact that they'll only put people in who they're on good terms (ie have a merchandising contract) with makes a mockery of the whole thing.

Sammartino is as important to their history as Hogan. For him to not be in, when people like Koko B Ware, Bob Uecker, and James Dudley are, is why it can't be taken seriously.
