|No one will care about a show about the Harts without Bret. You may as well have the Osbournes without Ozzy or Hogan Knows Best without Hulk Hogan.
|Those shows were going to get cancelled whether she was on them or not. If anything the shows were grasping at straws hoping that Stacy would keep them alive. This does tell us that Stacy can't keep a dead show alive.
|Three straight shows with Stacy Keibler which have been canceled shortly after she appeared. You know, Stacy Keibler is a pretty girl. But, she can't act and was a complete waste of space within the wrestling business. She is the "kiss of death" for television shows.
