However, in an effort by FIFA to suppress the news about the corruption, it was made sure that all the news channels telecasted the unbearable weather conditions in the host country as the reason for the change. Incidentally, the news channel that Jeeves watched is the only one that broadcasted the corruption as the actual reason for the change in venues. While all the members of his football club believe that climatic conditions were the reason for the change of venues. Although Jeeves arrived at K from P, this belief, according to Gettier, would not be considered knowledge as it was an accident that Jeeves watched the specific news channel that broadcasted the actual news.

That rejection scorched Austin's soul and fueled the fire for a man who would go on to become a stone cold killer on the microphone and one of the biggest superstars of all time. Unfortunately, Austin's torment would become the template for disgruntled ex-employees in the wrestling biz: show up in a new company, bash the old one for holding you down, all while promising to show the world talent never before seen. And as I reflect on Damien Sandow's recent debut and promo in TNA, all I could think of was, "Enough!" With all due respect to the newly christened Aron Rex, I've heard this speech a thousand times before, especially from those fresh out of Stamford.
