Beginning in 1995, rival wrestling companies World Wrestling Entertainment and World Championship Wrestling battled for television ratings, with the flagship shows of each promotion airing in the same time slot on Monday nights. The era, known as The Monday Night War, was one of the most exciting periods in the history of professional wrestling, and is the subject of a new 20-episode documentary airing Tuesday nights at 9 p.m. ET on the WWE Network. Hulk Hogan, who left the WWE in 1993 and became the face of the WCW, talked to For The Win about the creation of the New World Order, his shocking heel turn, and the events that led to WCW’s demise.

FTW: At Bash at the Beach 1996 you joined Scott Hall and Kevin Nash and cut that amazing promo in the ring after betraying the WCW, and fans pelted you with trash. Did you expect that sort of reaction?

Hogan: Yes, I knew it was going to be intense. When you tell people for 20 years that you love them, tell them to ‘train, say your prayers and eat your vitamins,’ believe in yourself and then all of a sudden you stab everybody in the back. I knew there was going to be a huge reaction.

FTW: Just before that pay-per-view, WCW started an 84-week streak of beating the WWE in Monday night ratings. During this period, did you ever think that the WCW would win the war, and WWE might disappear?

Hogan: I was praying to God that wouldn’t happen. I prayed to God that we would become the No. 1 wrestling show, and that WWE would thrive and stay the monster that they were. WCW might become a little bit [of a] bigger monster. I never wanted anybody to go away. I wanted two different companies so talent could have a choice where they could work and make big, big money.

FTW: Was there a moment for you where you felt WWE took control and turned the corner in the ratings battle?

Hogan: No, I just know that internally [in the WCW] things just started to fall apart. People got overconfident. I wasn’t [always] there…. When I was there every Monday, I had a really good feel for the direction and what [then WCW executive vice president] Eric [Bischoff] was doing, what the writers were doing. We got to the point where, I wasn’t part-time but I was there like every other Monday, and when I’d come back from being away for a week it was almost like the lunatics were running the asylum. The whole thing changed. There was a bunch of chiefs, and there should have been just one chief. I kind of saw things starting to lose direction.

FTW: What was it like backstage at a typical Nitro during this period? Were you guys always keeping an eye on Raw?

Hogan: We had monitors set up, and we would start early because we were a cable show, we would start early and end late if we needed to. We were pretty much watching minute-by-minute stuff, keeping a handle on the game and making sure we stayed in control.

FTW: When you turned heel after being the No. 1 face in the business for decades, was that a liberating experience creatively? Did you enjoy it?

Hogan: I was kind of at the crossroads. Vince [McMahon] and I had parted ways a couple of years before, he had an opinion about Hulk Hogan and his longevity and I had a totally different opinion. I left to go to a TV show called Thunder in Paradise for a year or so, a year and a half. Then when Eric Bischoff and Ric Flair approached me about coming back to wrestling, I was ready. After the 14, 15, 16-hour days on the set of this action show I was producing with the Baywatch guys, I’d had enough.

When I went back to work, everything clicked. It just worked. I started out with the red and yellow, beat Flair for the belt, and then we get to a point where things flattened off after a couple months. The decision to turn heel was, we were either going to crash and burn or this is totally going to reignite the wrestling business, and it did.

FTW: So how did the nWo come together?

Hogan: Diamond Dallas Page was friends with Nash and Hall, and he told Eric that their contracts were up. So Eric talked to them and brought them in and you could feel the energy of these guys coming down from the big New York promotion. It was kind of like a shot of adrenaline, so we jumped right on it. Eric came up with the nWo idea, asked me if I wanted to join these guys, and I said ‘well I’ve always… always, always envisioned myself as a single performer. I never really saw myself as a group guy, but it worked out well because I was the leader of the nWo and still had the single main-event matches. The whole package worked really well.

FTW: Which character did you prefer, classic real American Hulk or Hollywood Hulk?

Hogan: Hollywood Hulk Hogan was really, really fun because it was exciting, it was proving the point that my run wasn’t over and the character wasn’t dead. But nothing beats that original ‘80s run from 1984 all the way through the ‘80s. That was just an electric time. Wrestling was the most talked about thing on every planet. Every celebrity and every president of every nation wanted to come to the matches.

CZW honors one of its own http://www.onlineworldofwrestling.com/89938/czw-honors-one/ http://www.onlineworldofwrestling.com/89938/czw-honors-one/#comments Wed, 27 Aug 2014 13:59:33 +0000 http://www.onlineworldofwrestling.com/?p=89938 Combat Zone Wrestling will present “Down with the Sickness 2014 – The Chri$ Ca$h Memorial Show” this September.

Chris Cash

AS I SEE IT: CZW honors one of its own
Bob Magee
Pro Wrestling: Between the Sheets
PWBTS.com

It was over nine years ago, on August 18, 2005, that CZW wrestler Christopher “Chri$ Ca$h” Bauman Jr. was killed as the result of a motorcycle accident near his home. Bauman had been riding a motorcycle on Ellis Street in Glassboro, NJ when a Ford Taurus turned in front of it from Higgins Drive. The motorcycle then struck the car on the driver’s side of the vehicle, driven by Daisy Gwin of Glassboro, NJ.

Christopher J. Bauman Jr., 23, died at the scene, as did his cousin (and driver of the motorcycle).27 year old Jeremy Bauman, 27, of Franklinville, NJ. Gwin, 68, of Glassboro, died en route to Kennedy Memorial Hospital in Washington Township, NJ.

Chris was always genuinely friendly in a way that a lot of wrestlers aren’t, but had the wild side we all had at age 23. He was a nice young man, in every sense that the phrase used to mean; and always felt obligated to call me “Mr. Magee” when I came to a show (even when I told him he didn’t have to), would always say hello when I saw him at a CZW show and tell me he’d seen something or another on my PWBTS.com site.

Bauman worked for CZW from 2001 through 2005, with many non-CZW fans even taking notice of him at Cage of Death 5 in his absolutely psychotic ladder match with Blackout’s Joker (who left the promotion shortly afterwards to serve in the US military over in Iraq).

The oddest thing is that this match wasn’t even supposed to happen in the way that it did; as it was originally scheduled as a tag team bout, involving Deranged and Azriael, who were working the Jersey All Pro Wrestling show in Rahway, NJ, then come down to Philadelphia for CZW.

But in an almost unprecedented moment for those who know CZW… the show was actually running ahead of schedule. As a result, Deranged and Azriael were not yet at the building. Another version of the story had the two calling the building, telling CZW they were just leaving…and were told not to bother, because they’d never make it in time.

In any event, this forced the promotion to go ahead with a singles ladder match, which turned out to be the best thing that could have happened, as it made two stars for CZW in one night with Cash and Joker nearly stealing the entire show.

Psycho spots in this match included Cash bulldogging Joker while his head was inside a rung of a ladder off the ropes onto a chair, a top rope superplex onto a ladder stuck at a 45 degree angle into the rungs of another ladder; ending with one of the sickest spots I’ve ever seen in my years of shows at the ECW Arena, as Joker hit his Joker Driver (tiger driver from an electric chair position) off the top of a high ladder with Cash through a table for the pin.

Cash also main evented Cage of Death 6/War Games, as part of the babyface Team Ca$h (Nate Webb, Sexxy Eddy, Cash, JC Bailey) against heel team (turned babyface and heel again) Blackout (Ruckus, Sabian, Kingston, and Jack Evans. As usual, the match featured the daredevil spots for which Cash was known throughout his all-too-short career; including dumping Jack Evans via backdrop off the COD to the floor, and giving Sabian a Cashflow off of the scaffold through four tables, landing in the second row of the ECW Arena.

All I could think when I heard the news was: God…Chris was easily young enough to be my son. Sons aren’t supposed to die before the parents…or their contemporaries. At the same time, I can’t imagine Chris as a 40 or 50 year old. His spirit was too free and wild to have ever been anything but young.

In memory of Chris, Combat Zone Wrestling will again present “Down with the Sickness 2014 – The Chri$ Ca$h Memorial Show” at the Flyers Skate Zone on September 13, as part of a WSU/CZW doubleheader.

In featured matches:

* 3 way ladder match for the CZW Tag Titles with Juicy Product vs. Ohio Is For Killers vs. The Beaver Boys

* Drew Gulak will join the returning Nate Webb, Adam Flash, and former CZW World Heavyweight Champion The Messiah to face The Front

CZW tickets are available online, or can be picked them up at the door before the show.

Keep your eye on CZWrestling.com as well as all the official CZW social media for the latest updates.

In other CZW news, earlier in the week, DJ Hyde accepted the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge at the CZW Academy. Tonight, Combat Zone Wrestling, in conjunction with RandomThings.co, did an ALS Ultraviolent Dunk Tank. Before last night’s show, DJ Hyde and members of the CZW Roster went into the Ultraviolent Ice Dunk Tank and supported ALS to the tune of nearly $300.

To conclude, congratulations to the Taney Dragons, who gave Philadelphia, and the country a real feel-good story, especially needed during a two week period with of a lot of sadness in the world, between Robin Williams’s passing, all that has happened in Ferguson, MO, and the murderous terrorism of ISIL in Iraq and Syria.

It’s notable at a time where Ferguson, MO had racial conflict igniting war on its streets, on the airwaves, and the Internet; a Little League baseball team from Philadelphia, with Mon’e Davis its poster girl… a team made up of five black, four interracial and three white kids served as an example to us all. The reaction to them reminds us that people CAN act according to their better angels, and can look beyond race….and gender.

One special thought to Mo’ne Davis, thanks for giving girls AND boys (not to mention men and women) a whole new definition of what it means to “throw like a girl”.

Until next time….

— Bob Magee

Chris Melendez

Courtesy of impactwrestling.com:

After much hype and appearances on major news programs across the country, this Wednesday will give fans their first opportunity to meet Chris Melendez, a true American war hero and the newest signing by TNA Wrestling. Before you tune in to witness “Sarge” arriving on IMPACT, take a moment to read about his journey.

Chris Melendez is a former Army Sergeant, who served his country in Afghanistan and was awarded a Purple Heart. Because of injuries suffered in combat, the brave soldier returned home a single leg amputee. Melendez, a member of the Wounded Warrior Project, had another dream to realize when he returned home. He dreamed of becoming a pro wrestler.

Chris’ remarkable story begins as a kid growing up in Spanish Harlem. His grandmother introduced him to professional wrestling at a young age and, ever since, he has been hooked.

“The ability to captivate an audience without having to say any words is what got me hooked.”

Inspired by his father, a Vietnam Vet, and compelled by the events of September 11, Chris joined the U.S. Army at the young age of 17. At age 19, and with only 23 days of his Iraq deployment remaining, he sustained horrifying life-threatening injuries from an IED.

“When I was able to open my eyes after the explosion I looked across the battlefield to see what I thought was a fellow-soldier in need of help. I quickly realized it was my leg.”

After being resuscitated three times and enduring numerous emergency surgeries and procedures, Melendez’s long road of recovery took him to Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, Texas. Through pure grit and determination, cutting edge science and technology delivered via the VA, and support from friends, family and The Wounded Warrior Project, Melendez was walking with a prosthetic within 40 days.

In 2012, Melendez entered Team 3D Academy of Professional Wrestling in Florida where he trained day-in and day-out under the tutelage of Bully Ray and Devon.

Tomorrow night, tune into IMPACT at 9/8c on Spike TV to meet Sergeant Chris Melendez!

By of GivemeSports.com:

It is no secret that Kurt Angle is seeking a return to the WWE having spent several years now wrestling in TNA but it seems he may have blown his chances after upsetting the one man he will rely upon in his bid to take to a WWE ring once more.

As reported by The Wrestling Observer, Angle is said to have angered HHH by going above his head to Vince McMahon to discuss a possible return to the WWE having already been all but rejected in his pursuit by Triple H himself just days ago.

As Executive Vice President, Talent, Live Events & Creative, Triple H, aka Paul Levesque, is in charge of recruiting and bringing in wrestlers to the organization and as such rightly sees himself as the man in charge of that particular facet of the WWE.

Angle’s move clearly undermines Triple H’s role therefore and shows that the man who proved so popular in the WWE during the 00s has little respect for his former Attitude Era rival’s new role.

HHH’s reaction also proves that he is keen to ensure he is respected in his role outside of the ring.
