WWE: Pete Rose steps to the plate to discuss Kane’s anger issues

Crusher Verdu-bag speaks.

WWE.com: After all the punishment and embarrassment you have suffered at the hands of Kane, are you still hoping for retribution or will you just steer clear of him?

Rose: I have to figure out a way to get even with Kane but I don’t know how to do it. He’s too big for me and I’m too slow now. I would need to use my Mizuno baseball bat and it would have to be made legal for our match. Even then, I’m still not sure it would be enough to beat that monster.

WWE.com: Do you think your infamous 1970 All-Star Game shoulder block that dropped Ray Fosse would be effective against Kane?

Rose: To make a shoulder block effective, I need to pick up speed. I wouldn’t be able to pick up enough speed to knock Kane down inside a WWE ring. I’d have to run at Kane full speed from the stage at the top of the ramp. Even then, I think Kane is too much of a monster to topple. I’ll stick with the bat.

WWE.com: Will we ever see you back on WWE TV?

Rose: I love WWE. I’ve never met a Superstar who wasn’t a professional gentleman and a great guy to work with … except Kane. Did I mention that he’s a monster?

If my brother burned down the funeral home we lived in and scarred me for life I'd be angry too.

What does Rose have against Charles Foster Kane?

Is he in league with boss Jim Geddes?

Carol Kane, actually. I'm not sure what he's so afraid of.

Wait a minute. There's no cane in Citizen Kane.

The "phonies" tag clearly isn't being used often enough...maybe it should link to the members list?

as much as the OT threads can get tiresome, i'd never advocate banning them. however, i would gladly support a ban on pete rose threads.
