WWE.comOver the decades, Vincent Kennedy McMahon has spectacularly fallen out with a number of stars in his employment. Its the nature of the beast when youre involved in such a strange business as professional wrestling. But the phrase never say never is one thats often uttered in wrestling circles, because Vince can make up with you just as easily as he can break up with you, and if theres money to be made, you can bet your bottom dollar that Vince will let the dollar signs forgive all former sins. For years, the WWE refused to acknowledge the mere existence of their longest reigning World Champion of all time, Bruno Sammartino, after Sammartino departed the company in a fury, following the sacking of his son, David. Sammartino then spent years appearing on talk shows and other media criticising the company and their direction, especially during the steroid trial of 1994. And yet, after a lot of work by Triple H in talking him around, he was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame last year, as many long time observers pinched themselves in disbelief. And this year, The Ultimate Warrior, who WWE once released a DVD burial of entitled The Self-Destruction of The Ultimate Warrior, has come to terms with Vince to be inducted into this years class. The deal for his induction includes the release of a new DVD, which one imagines, will be slightly more complimentary towards the man himself. But theres an elite group of former superstars for whom no money will buy Vinces forgiveness. They have seemingly crossed a line that cannot be undone. Lets take a look and who they are, and just why theyre on that list.
Dean Ayass is a well known name to British wrestling fans. A commentator, manager, booker and ring announcer who has been involved in the business since 1993, Dean's insight into the business is second to none.
