Flair wanted Jericho out there cause he likes him.

That had to gall HHH.

The Feul song is okay but it doesn't strike me as having a thing to do with Flair other than they threw together a video of Flair to go with it.
For a man that is supposed to be invisible, Cena really gets around. I don't know about you guys, but I can see him. He's not pulling the wool over my eyes.

I might be wrong....but Vince cut JJ's pay as he did someother office people pay  because WWE wasnt making money at that time....I think I read/heard in a shoot interview.

I think JJ said only people that had a wrestling backround in the office got a pay cut.

Think JJ said because of the paycut he lost his home.

Basically Heyman is trying to get hits for his blog at The Sun's website. Going along with the majority on Flair won't make much happen in that regard. By taking shots at Flair at the moment when he is getting vastly praised, Heyman stirs up people's emotions and then they go to read his piece and leave comments. I'd bet that Heyman probably has no real problem with the Flair stuff, but wrote what he did in order to cause a ruckus.

He didn't take any shots at Flair, quite the contrary.  I'm not sure what you read.

A better way for me to put it would have been to say Heyman was ripping on the ceremonial goodbye and videos, as opposed to Flair itself. However a lot more people loved the emotional deal at Raw than hated and even take criticism of the ceremony as that of Flair himself. Either way, Heyman was looking to push some buttons and get some hits.

I don't think it's particularly controversial to say that it was OK but there were someb things that could've been improved upon.  I feel the same way.

Heyman- "Hey, pay attention to me!!! I want to be controversial as usual so maybe someone will watch my shitty 5 minute internet only show that nobody seems to watch".

Heyman's a douche. Always has been, always will be, from one failure to the next. He is probably still living in his mom's basement, cutting ECW promos for her while she does his wash.

from pwinsider.com

JJ Dillon worked for a number of years alongside Vince McMahon and Pat Patterson as one of the top executives for the WWF.  In his excellent autobiography, Wrestlers Are Like Seagulls, Dillon wrote extensively about working on a one-on-one basis with McMahon and being put in the position to take the heat for McMahon's decisions when it upset the wrestlers working for the company.  Dillon noted in the book that he was concerned about being left in the open as a public scapegoat for the company's original drug testing plan since he was the administrator and if they didn't stick to the policy as written, it was on his head.  During the same time period, WWE reduced the salary of a number of their office staff and executives to stave off financial problems coming out of the Vince McMahon steroid trial era, which put Dillon, living in CT (which is expensive) behind the eight ball financially.  When his family was finally able to sell their home, Dillon tendered his resignation.  According to Dillon, McMahon, worried that Dillion was going to crap all over the company publicly (the same week as Shane McMahon's wedding) made an offer to take care of Dillon on the way out.  Dillon agreed and said he would sign following a family vacation that weekend. When he returned, the offer had been pulled because he had "allegedly" had discussions with WCW.  Dillon claimed in his book, those discussions were nothing more than his family running into Scott Hall's family while at the Magic Kingdom when both were on vacation.  He also claimed that McMahon lied about his departure, telling others that JJ had attempted to "extort" from the company.  Dillon said that he made a conscious decision at that point to never work for WWF again, and in his appearances on the Horsemen DVD and the Flair Farewell, were done more out of respect for history and wanting WWE to get the story and moment right, than in seeking out a paycheck.  Dillon now works as a prison guard in Delaware.
