- As seen in the video above, WWE Hall of Famer Bret "The Hitman" Hart made a surprise appearance during at the end of this past weekend's Evening with Jim Ross and Jim Cornette show in London, England with Inside The Ropes. The show focused on the rise of the Attitude Era.

- Speaking of Bret, we noted that he apologized to Michael Hayes for his recent comments ripping on The Freebirds being in the WWE Hall of Fame. Hayes accepted his apology, writing on Twitter:


- WCW announcer Larry Zbyszko appeared this week with WCW booker Kevin Sullivan on the MSL & Sullivan podcast available at MLWradio.com. In their first conversation since WCW closed 15 years ago, Larry and Kevin talked about WCW's glory days in the mid 90s and also spoke about why they admired each other so much.

"Kevin was a sharp guy, a witty guy," Zbyszko said. "He always managed to get himself into an office and I respected that because he came from an era that knew how to work. He got a chance to put his wisdom into the business so it was good to have a guy that knows how to work in the office rather than the head of Pizza Hut."

Sullivan talked about Zbyszko legendary feud with Bruno Sammartino and how well that storyline was crafted.

"When he did the thing with Bruno [Sammartino], the way it played out, not rushing, it's like Shakespeare. It's everything, father vs son, the most dynamic relationship in the world. It's teacher against pupil. It's young vs old. It had the makings of a Shakespeare play and Larry pulled it off greatly."
