Brock Lesnar
When Brock Lesnar interrupted the birthday celebration for Hulk Hogan on Monday Night Raw last week, he went off script a bit. The former UFC Heavyweight Champion said, "Party's over, grandpa." That was not a line fed to him by the WWE creative department. Reports are surfacing that Lesnar took that jab on his own or had help from Paul Heyman in coming up with that line.

Hulk Hogan
The white and black is headed back to WWE next week when Monday Night Raw comes to us live from Portland. Hulk Hogan will be celebrating his birthday on air, and he has a couple of buddies coming back to join him. Scott Hall and Kevin Nash have reportedly been confirmed for the event, and the belief is that WWE will be doing some sort of nWo reunion to boost television ratings.

Scott Hall
Reports are surfacing about an incident between Scott Hall and a terminally ill kid with brain cancer at a wrestling convention, and it is making the former WWE and WCW star look like a really bad human being. It is being said that Hall refused to sign a birthday card for the 6 year old boy, who may only have a little bit of time left to live. Several other wrestlers took the time to do the kind deed for the kid.

"First, I don't often explain myself to no one, but I had no idea anyone got let go. I was asked to post about birthday. That's what came out. It was about my 18 year journey. I know where you live, dude. It's a small world. An apology is due. If not, well, you know me. I'll handle our business." - Mark Henry responding to Curt Hawkins about his insensitive Tweet on the day of his WWE release

Bret Hart
"Today would've been my dad's 99th birthday and it's hard to believe he's been gone for 10 years now. I miss my dad everyday. His humor, his simple advice, and understanding of what it took to be a man. I often think of him as I drive down Bow Trail seeing Calgary's gorgeous skyline. I feel his spirit fill my mind, my heart, and I smile at how I know both Calgary and I are somehow protected as he admires and watches over us from the heavens." - Bret Hart remembers his father Stu Hart

Chris Benoit

"One night, Chris ended up killing his wife and his kid. That is an act so terrible and horrible I can't even comprehend or guess as to what happened in that house. That will always overshadow any accomplishment Chris had in the ring. He'll never be in the Hall of Fame, it will just never happen. His career will speak for itself but his record as a human being, his first and foremost, and those actions will never be forgotten. That's my feelings on that, we don't even need to talk about the Hall of Fame. Speaking for myself, Chris Benoit as the person I knew, loved him. Chris Benoit as a wrestler, loved him. Chris Benoit as the person who did what he did, unforgivable. Bottom line."

Steve Austin

"Well first and foremost, what I think about Chris Benoit is that guy was one of the most nicest guys I ever met in my life. He's one of the most talented, hard working cats I'd ever seen in the squared circle. Anybody who knew Chris would tell you those exact two things. That guy loved the damn wrestling business, he was born to be a wrestler and was absolutely phenomenal. Drawing a lot of his influence from The Dynamite Kid, he blazed a path as the Pegasus Kid and his legacy as The Crippler Chris Benoit was just one hellacious career."

"Chris was dark, he was extremely dark. We used to have a joke that Chris was tri-polar, because it was a step up from bi-polarity. He would flip sometimes. I think a combination of Chris' background of with steroids, mixed with the partying, is a recipe for disaster. One of them is a recipe for disaster. Its literally taking Drano and pouring it on your hard drive. See what that does for your computer."
