Oscar (From Men on a Mission) as well as Justin LaBar from Wrestlezone.com and Comedian Sherwin Xel stopped by Under the Mat Radio to discuss their feelings and memories of the late great Nelson Frazier A.K.A Big Daddy V or King Mabel. This was a special episode called “Remembering the King” dedicated to him in his honor and other topics were discussed as well. You can listen to the full interview below; here are some of the highlights:
Oscar on when he found out about Nelson Frazier’s passing: “When the call came in and it was like…Nelson died, I mean I had no words, I was in shock. I woke my wife up to tell her and she thought she was dreaming. You know when people say it’s like your life flash before your eyes; you know our history flashed before my eyes…and it hit me real hard and all I could do was cry like a baby”
Primo’s Wrestling in Canada recently spoke with WWE Hall of Famer Bret “Hitman” Hart.Bret talks about wrestlers taking chairshots, his health, injuries, and much more. Bret says if Vince McMahon made him the boss of WWE he would make the titles mean more. Bret also says you would never have guys who are 15-time champions like Triple H and others.
So the top of the Wrestlemania card is shaping up, and if we’re being honest, it is pretty underwhelming. The “face” of the WWE, Randy Orton is scheduled to headline the event versus Batista, a match exactly zero people are excited to see. Maybe WWE management will add Daniel Bryan to the match to please the fans, but as of now Bryan is scheduled to wrestle Triple H. And besides I’m not a big fan of changing matches the night of a show. I like the build. I like the storylines. That’s what sells it for me. Not last-minute changes. It took 2 years for the Mega-Powers to explode, and when they finally met in Atlantic City it was a memorable moment.
In 1990 the Ultimate Warrior made an appearance on the Arsenio Hall Show. Arsenio doesn’t seem to know what to make of the Ultimate one! This was just before the Ultimate Warrior would go on to defeat then WWF world champion Hulk Hogan at Wrestlemania VI!!
