AS I SEE IT: Bryan Danielson’s story continued this past week

Bryan “Daniel Bryan” Danielson’s 2013-2014 story continued this past week, a story beyond anything written in Hollywood. The latest chapter saw he and wife Brianna “Brie Bella” Garcia-Colace Danielson came home last Thursday night, seeing two men leaving their house. The burglars dropped what they’d stolen, and ran down the street.

As several neighbors called 911, Danielson chased down one of the pair, caught up with them and locked him in a rear naked choke for five minutes until police arrived. The capture was even more significant because the perpetrator is facing kidnapping charges in another case.

Brianna retrieved what the pair of burglars were in the process of stealing, including a bracelet Danielson had received from his late father reading: “To the man that you’ve become and the son you’ll always be …” and gifts from Brianna’s sister. The pair were also worried about their dog, Josie, who was in the house while they’d been out.

Ironically, if Danielson hadn’t been hurt, and if WWE storyline hadn’t been written to allow Brianna to spend time with him (and to set up the presumed stipulation for the Summerslam match with Stephanie McMahon, started up in earnest last Monday), one or both would likely have been fulltime on the road. If Danielson hadn’t been hurt, but Brianna had been written out, she’d have been there alone when burglars struck. If they’d both been on the road, the gifts from family would have been stolen.

Danielson’s last year has featured the on-again, off again, push toward the WWE Title, pushed back into the Wrestlemania title match because of a rare degree fan and public response (despite the best efforts of WWE). Danielson got the title at Wrestlemania 30. He became friends with a young cancer patient, brought other WWE talent and management into the process, and gave the child happy weeks before the little boy finally lost his fight with cancer. Danielson then lost his own father unexpectedly. Next, he was injured and was forced to be written out of the WWE title storyline. Finally (?), while still injured, he captured a burglar who robbed his own house.

Try pitching that one to Hollywood and tell me how it works out. We’ll see if the story somehow gets written into RAW tonight. If WWE doesn’t, they aren’t trying very hard.

In other news….in mid-August, it will have been nine years.

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, striking the car on the driver’s side of a vehicle driven by Daisy Gwin of Glassboro, NJ.

Christopher J. Bauman Jr., 23, died at the scene, as did his cousin 27 year old Jeremy Bauman, 27, of Franklinville, NJ the driver of the motorcycle. 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 for one of his tours of duty). 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 four years ago 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.
CZW will remember Chris at its September 13 doubleheader with Women Superstars Uncensored at the Flyers Skate Zone in Voorhees, NJ.

Until next time….

WWE announce Fergal Devitt signing http://www.onlineworldofwrestling.com/88734/wwe-announce-fergal-devitt-signing/ http://www.onlineworldofwrestling.com/88734/wwe-announce-fergal-devitt-signing/#comments Mon, 28 Jul 2014 17:14:15 +0000 http://www.onlineworldofwrestling.com/?p=88734 WWE has signed Fergal Devitt to its NXT division. He will report to the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, FL today.

Courtesy of WWE.com:

WWE has signed international Superstar Fergal Devitt to its NXT division. He will report to the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida, today, WWE.com has confirmed.

“This is something I’ve been looking forward to since I was maybe four or five years old,” Devitt told WWE.com last week, while preparing for the trip in his home country of Ireland. “I grew up watching wrestling my whole life, so to get the chance to step in the ring that I’ve watched on TV so many times is a dream come true.”

Prior to signing with WWE, Devitt was widely considered one of the most highly touted free agents in sports-entertainment. Hailing from Bray, County Wicklow, Ireland, his path to NXT and WWE has been circuitous: Initially trained in England, Devitt honed his craft in the U.K. and U.S. independent scenes before entering the notoriously disciplined dojos of New Japan Pro Wrestling. He also competed in Mexico, though it was in New Japan that he rose to greatest prominence, under the name Prince Devitt.

During his eight-year tenure there, Devitt captured the group’s prestigious IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship three times, and he won New Japan’s Best of the Super Juniors tournament — the same tournament won by the likes of WWE Hall of Famer Eddie Guerrero — twice, in 2010 and 2013. Devitt went undefeated in last year’s edition of the round-robin tournament.

Now, he’s excited to move on to the next stage of his career, in WWE. A self-described “chameleon in the ring,” Devitt prides himself on adapting to his surroundings wherever he goes. Despite the anticipation that’s surrounded his signing, he’s quick to note it’ll be “back to square one” when he gets to the WWE Performance Center.

10 things you didn’t know about the WWE Performance Center

“I don’t consider myself anywhere close to the finished product, so I’m looking forward to this challenge and learning a new style,” he said.

This won’t be Devitt’s first time at the Performance Center. He visited the facility months ago, during which time he met the coaching staff. The Center, which recently celebrated its one-year anniversary, exceeded Devitt’s already-high expectations.

 

“I’ve seen a lot of different training schools and dojos, and the sheer level of professionalism at the Performance Center and the state-of-the-art facility just knocked me for a six. It really blew me away,” he said.

Though perhaps an unknown entity to many WWE fans, Devitt is a familiar face to several members of the NXT locker room, most notably NXT Champion Adrian Neville, whom Devitt wrestled in Japan, and newcomer Becky Lynch, whom he helped train. He’s anxious to have the chance to get in the ring again with Neville, as well as Sami Zayn, who he said “stands out.”

“We kinda missed each other, played crisscross, but never had a chance to lock up on the independent circuit, so that’d be something I’d really look forward to,” Devitt said of Zayn.

On the main roster, Devitt said there’s one absolute goal: “The target would be John Cena, because if you’re wrestling John Cena, you’re in the main event.” Still, he’d also like to tie up or team up with fellow Irishman Sheamus. Devitt and Sheamus started their careers in Ireland around the same time, but because they worked for competing organizations, they never battled, only knew each other by reputation.

Devitt’s signing, meanwhile, represents WWE’s second major acquisition of an international talent in recent weeks. During WWE’s tour of Japan earlier this month, Hulk Hogan presided over the ceremonial contract signing of Japanese competitor Kenta.

Watch Kenta’s signing | Kenta talks to Renee Young

“I think it’s definitely a good thing and the company’s obviously looking forward,” Devitt said of WWE’s current talent recruitment. “It’s bringing in some well-traveled performers, so I think for NXT, it’s a good thing.”

It’s just that worldly experience that Devitt credited with readying him for the demanding rigor of WWE’s proving ground.

“It’s helped me and my confidence, both in and out of the ring,” Devitt said of his travels. “I never feel out of my depth of experience. I’ve been put into a lot of situations that could be stressful. That’s really helped me mature, both as a performer and as a man.”

Whether the WWE Universe will ever see Devitt sporting some of the flashier elements that made him stand out in Japan — the Chris Jericho-esque light-up ring jacket or sprawling, comic book-inspired body-paint designs — remains to be seen.

“I’ve always got a couple of tricks up my sleeve, so I’m going to come up with something new before then,” he said. “But yeah, look out for the light-up jacket, look out for the body paint. Look out for a new Devitt.”

Spike

Courtesy of TMZ.com:
TNA Wrestling‘s flagship show “Impact Wrestling” could soon be without a home — Spike TV quietly let the league know it’s not renewing their TV contract … TMZ has learned.

Multiple sources with direct knowledge of the deal … tell us Spike execs contacted TNA President Dixie Carter late last week to break the news — and the following day Carter informed members of her inner circle.

TNA’s current deal with Spike reportedly runs through October. It’s unclear at this point when “Impact Wrestling” will stop airing on Spike.

We’re told there’s no bad blood, and Spike gave TNA such advance notice so it would have time to shop for a new TV deal.

TNA’s show debuted on Spike TV in October 2005 — and helped the league rise to #2 on the wrestling scene … behind the WWE.

We’ve called TNA and Spike for comment  … so far, no word back.

Donald Wood, Mike Chiari, and Brandon Galvin had WWE SUPERSTAR BO DALLAS on the show this week, and it was a great episode with plenty of exclusive content.

They talked about Battleground, Growing Up in a Wrestling Family, Bray Wyatt, WWE NXT and so much more!

Ring Rust Radio Interview: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/ringrustradio/2014/07/22/ring-rust-radio–july-22-w-wwe-star-bo-dallas-and-battleground-review

Transcript:

Donald Wood: Sunday, July 20 is WWE’s Battleground Pay-Per-View on the WWE Network. You are scheduled to compete in the Battle Royal for the Intercontinental title. Do you Bo-lieve you’re going to walk out as the new champion?

Bo Dallas: Absolutely. You’ve got to look at any situation as the most positive that you can and the most positive is obviously me winning. So if I bo-lieve I can do it, then I can.

Mike Chiari: So many of the all-time greats took their first step toward the top in WWE by winning the Intercontinental Championship. Is that how you view the IC title? As a potential stepping stone to the main-event scene down the line?

Bo Dallas: Oh absolutely. Look at the Intercontinental Championship’s legacy. You’ve got Randy “Macho Man” Savage, Bret Hart, Shawn Michaels, “Mr. Perfect” Curt Hennig. The Intercontinental Championship is a legacy, not only something I’ve strived to get in my life, but a big step in my career. Yes, it’s a dream, and if I could accomplish it, it would mean the world to me.

Brandon Galvin: Bo, is there any specific backstory as to how you developed your current character? Was there a certain life-changing moment or other inspiration? Or did happen to stumble on something completely different from the norm and run with it?

Bo Dallas: There was no one moment that I could look at that says, ‘this is what happened.’ It was just a series of events. I got the opportunity to become NXT Champion down in the NXT developmental, and luckily I got 8 months as the champion and it just sort of developed. Things started happening and everything was clicking on all cylinders and working and it developed and morphed into its own monster. I just rolled with the punches, kept my eyes open and my ears sharp to everything that was coming in and took it and ran with it.

Donald Wood: Before your incredible winning streak on the main roster, you were the longest-reigning NXT Champion in history. With you experience in both WWE and NXT, what are some of the major difference between performing in NXT and the main roster and what advice would you give to a star making the transition?

Bo Dallas: The way the developmental system is these days is different than it has ever been. They do so much to prepare us for making that jump from NXT to the big stage that there’s not many differences. NXT is its own brand and has become bigger than I think ever thought was possible. But if I can give any inspirational advice to anyone coming up, really look at what you do and know that what works, works. It doesn’t matter the size of the stage, if it works at a smaller stage, it will work at a bigger stage and stay true to what you are and Bo-lieve in yourself.

Mike Chiari: Your brother is currently having a lot of success in WWE as Bray Wyatt and your dad works for the company as well. What’s it like for you to work so closely with your family? Do you think that it’s been beneficial to your career so far?

Bo Dallas: Absolutely. Road life is hard. You’re always traveling and you never get to go home, but when you have your family on the road, you always have someone you can trust to bounce ideas off of and know that the advice you get is in the best interest for you. It’s just a great feeling to know you can have someone like that on the road with you at the hardest times

Brandon Galvin: Not many have the opportunity to grow up in a wrestling family as successful as yours. Are there any memories that stand out to you that helped better prepare you to be a WWE Superstar?

Bo Dallas: Oh yeah, tons. Just being around WWE superstars throughout the past that I consider friends and family, and learning from them and watching them and having little memories growing up that help today and just having the comradery and seeing old friends and people I grew up with. Seeing their sons and their daughters and being together with them, it’s just like a family.

Donald Wood: You have dominated SmackDown as one of the most promising prospects of the last several years. WWE returns to Philadelphia on Tuesday, October 7, for a SmackDown taping. How do you think the hardcore wrestling fans of Philadelphia will react to you?

Bo Dallas: Oh they’re going to love me! I’ve got to look at any situation as a positive situation, and I know there are some Bo-lievers out there in Philadelphia somewhere. If they’re not, I’m going to make them one.

Mike Chiari: Early last year you had a brief run on the main roster when you entered the Royal Rumble and then beat Wade Barrett the next night on Raw. Do you feel like that taste of being a full-time WWE Superstar helped prepare you for your current stint?

Bo Dallas: Yes, absolutely. I got the taste which lit a fire under me. In this industry, you have to evolve to stay relevant, what I wanted, I felt. So I had that eight months to know that that’s what I wanted and just worked as hard as I could, nonstop, to get where I needed to be, develop this character and develop who I am today. So yes, it absolutely lit a fire under me.

Brandon Galvin: WWE Network has provided fans and wrestlers with the opportunity to rewatch and relive their favorite moments. Are there any wrestlers that you’ve gone back to study in order to help you continue to develop into one of the top WWE Superstars?

Bo Dallas: Oh yeah, constantly. I’m on the WWE Network all the time. If I have free time, if I wasn’t on the radio right now, I would be on the WWE Network. There’s tons. A lot of what I watch is Mr. Perfect. I am a diehard fan of Mr. Perfect and Curt Hennig and his work. If I could go back in time and be in the ring with him, I would do anything for it. But I watch a lot of Curt Hennig’s old matches.

ECWA Recap & Results 7-12-14 Hall of Fame Show

1- Dirty Money defeats Drolix and Oz Tyler- What made this match intriguing was the debut of both Dirty Money and Drolix. However, the fans were solely behind the youngster Oz Tyler. Dirty Money was content letting Drolix do all the work… they even allied temporarily to beat down Tyler badly. It all broke down when Drolix went for the pin as Dirty Money took exception. A huge flurry of offense by all 3 men excited the crowd. Drolix hit a vertical suplex and utilized his old school beat down forearms to the head while Oz flew around the ring hitting an impressive STO and dropkick. Dirty Money was sent reeling! But Drolix would hit Oz Tyler with a devastating DDT but Dirty Money would seize the chance throwing Drolix from the ring and covering the stunned Tyler for the pinfall.

2- Breaker Morant defeats Michael Spanos- Sporting a new look and attitude, the former Little Mikey was just as happy showing off to the woman in the crowd as fighting Breaker Morant. Morant would not have any of that… he would hit a flurry of his trademark haymakers and even a Frankensteiner off the top turnbuckle. But Spanos wouldn’t go down that easy hitting his usual array of power moves like a sidewalk slam and big suplexes. But Spanos’s cockiness would be his downfall… Breaker Morant would surprise him with his cutter neck breaker slam for the 1…2..3!

3- ECWA developmental talent Brandon defeats Kid USA- Kid USA looked to easily be able to take care of a rookie like Brandon. He would hit numerous punches and suplexes. It looked like a quick debut for Brandon. But Kid USA went for leap frog and injured his knee. Taking advantage, Brandon showed why he has a bright future in the business hitting a sky high dropkick and ring to top turnbuckle jumping hurricarana that left everyone in attendance stunned. The Kid would recover and look to close in on the victory but Brandon rolled up Kid USA on a sunset flip for the victory!

*The Boss’s Chair began with Mike Tartaglia calling out the ECWA tag team champions Team CK and Woman’s Champion Renee Michelle. They would take to the microphone insulting everyone in the crowd and singing the praises of their tag team title reign. Knowing D-Line wasn’t in the building they issued an open challenge to any team. Ricky Martinez would hit the ring first dumping Renee Michelle much to crowd’s delight… and then introducing his partner that would help him answer the open challenge… the GREEK GOD PAPADON! Papadon’s return spelled trouble for the champions! After accepting the match, all parties left except for Tartaglia… only for Matt Saigon to enter out of nowhere trying to assault The Boss! He would be attacked by the Boss’s new assassin Bolo Yung which led too…

4- Matt Saigon defeats Bolo Yung- In match 2 of the Boss’s Challenge, Saigon was matched against the deadly Bolo Yung who loves to dish out heavy punishment with his wide variety of kicks and chops. Yung dominated early landing HUGE kicks to Saigon’s body and head. With The Boss encouraging him, he would slowly weaken Saigon with chops and karate inspired submissions. But Saigon’s unpredictability led him back as Saigon fought fire with fire with kicks and running knees. Feeling the support of the crowd, he landed an ace crusher that seemed to do the trick but a near fall! Climbing to the top rope, he would hit a frog splash for the win!

5- Chris Wylde defeats Mark Harro and Kao Storm to retain the Mid Atlantic Championship- The 3 men absolutely blew the roof of the building with what many called match of the night. Storm and Wylde would start the match double teaming Harro trying to take him out of commission early. Beating him down with clotheslines and stomps they would throw him from the ring. Storm and Wylde would square off. Storm would get the early nod hitting Wylde with suplexes and body slams. Wylde would counter with a cannonball roll of his own onto Storm in the corner but that’s where it broke down. Harro would re-enter the match jumping off of Wylde’s bent knee with a devastating knee to Storm in the corner. Then hitting a running moonsault for a near fall. Wylde would be up first putting Kao Storm in a STF submission while at the same time giving Harro a fisher man suplex! The crowd was crazy throughout! Then Storm picked up business by suplexing Wylde over the top rope onto Harro who was recovering on the floor! Then the big move as Storm flew through the ropes hitting both men! As all 3 men recovered in the ring the end was near… Wylde would send Harro and Storm into the turnbuckle. Climbing to the top rope he would jump over both men super kicking Harro after landing! Storm would try his Canadian Destroyed finisher for the win but Wylde would counter with a Destroyer of his own to retain the Mid Atlantic Championship!

6- Renee Michelle vs. Jessie Kaye ended in a double pinfall, vacating the Woman’s Championship- It’s no secret that Michelle and Kaye have no love lost for each other. Kaye wouldn’t even wait for entrance music attacking the champion from behind landing a huge boot to the face, body slam, and leg drop for the near fall. But the champion wasn’t so easily defeated… Michelle hit a running bulldog and stomped away at the challenger. Michelle would try a moonsault only to miss! However, Kaye would attempt a flying shoulder block hitting the referee! With him down she hit her finisher, a foot on the neck style stomp, but the referee was out! Another referee would enter the ring and try to make the pinfall but NO the champion would not give up. Going for a big move of her own, Michelle smelt blood but Kaye would counter with a Northern Lights Suplex. The new referee and now recovered original referee would both make the count with one saying Jessie Kaye won and the other Renee Michelle. Chaos ensued as neither man could come to an agreement on who the victor was. ECWA booker Joe Zanolle and both referees entered the locker room arguing over who was the rightful winner.

7- Chuck Payne, Phil Sly, and his legal counsel defeat Meisure Ooh La La, Kid USA, and Coach Jim Shorts- The debuting Chuck Payne joined the cocky Phil Sly and his legal counsel to fight Ooh La La and Jim Shorts, but ECWA booker Joe Zanolle would make Kid USA their third partner. Things started slow. Sly and his legal counsel would tag in and out… same for Ooh La La and Jim Shorts to see who would finally fight. Ooh La La would eventually get his hands on the legal counsel kicking and punching him into the corner. He would hit a Stinkface! The fans laughed as Chuck Payne was tagged in. Billed as the ‘Extreme Redneck”, he would prove that moniker true. He would destroy Ooh La La  with a huge body slam for a near fall. The wily Frenchman would make enough room to tag in Kid USA who would unless a flurry of offense onto Chuck Payne. He would hit a dropkick and rally the fans by stunning the bigger Payne with anything he could hit Payne with. But it wouldn’t work, using his superior strength he would down the Kid with a devastating clothesline first in the middle of the ring and then into the corner. Kid USA tried to counter but Payne would hit a crushing sit down power bomb for the pinfall.

8- Papadon & Ricky Martinez defeat Team CK- The tag team champions would be stunned with how well Papadon and Martinez worked together. Papadon would ground Sean Carr with an impressive display of chain wrestling. Martinez would tag in and out as well showcasing both men’s abilities. Papadon would hit a sit down clothesline and side slam for a near fall. Martinez would tag in and hit a suplex and neck breaker for another near fall. It seemed the tag team champions just couldn’t mount any offense. But then Carr would counter a body slam attempt tagging in Kage. Kage would hit huge blows onto Martinez. Slowly showcasing why they are the best team in ECWA currently, CK would tag in and out weakening Martinez with submissions and tandem moves. But the fans were willing Martinez to tag in his partner.. . And when he finally did Papadon cleared house! Papadon would fly around the ring delivered clubbing blows to Team CK. All 4 men would enter the fray! Stunning Martinez with a haymaker, Kage would pick up Papadon setting up for their super kick powerslam combo… but Carr would accidentally hit Kage with the super kick! A shocked Carr tried to attack but Ricky Martinez would hit a backstabber followed by an Alpha-Omega shining wizard by Papadon for the win to become NEW ECWA TAG TEAM CHAMPIOS… or so they thought. Mike Tartaglia would get on the mic saying that while this was an open challenge it was NOT for the ECWA Tag Team Titles… the fans voiced their displeasure as The Boss would explain they would get their shot… at the 47 year anniversary show in September. Turning back over the belts, Papadon and Martinez would accept.

9- Bobby Shields defeats Napalm Bomb to retain the ECWA Heavyweight Championship- Napalm was out for blood. He would brutally assault the champion with a heel kick and clotheslines in the corner. The Bomb would pick apart Shields piece by piece with submission and a big vertical suplex. The fans would will Shields back into it however. Beginning his assault, Shields hit a big heel kick in the corner followed by an STO. The fans backed the champion as he stunned Napalm Bomb with quick, fast offense looking for pin falls throughout. But Napalm’s far too deadly to go down that easy. Countering a Shields suplex he would deliver one of his own then climb the turnbuckle to try for a Swanton Bomb. He would hit it for a 1..2.. No near fall for the challenger. Clearly upset, Napalm Bomb decided if you can’t beat them clean, beat them down dirty. Grabbing a chair he would climb back into the ring. His evil manager Joel Blackhart would try to distract the referee so Napalm could use the chair but Bobby Shields was ready! As he went to use the chair, Bobby Shields would hit a dropkick onto the chair with it hitting Napalm in the face! Going for the pinfall Shields would seemingly easily get the 3 count but Napalm Bomb’s foot was on the bottom rope! But no! The referee didn’t see it and continued the count anyway! Much to the chagrin of an irate Joel Blackhart and Napalm, Bobby Shields retained his ECWA Heavyweight Championship.

Scotty Riggs

Former WCW and ECW Superstar Scotty Riggs recently took some time to participate in an exclusive interview with PWMania.com. Riggs talks about Sting in WWE, working with Paul Heyman in ECW, the backstage attitude in WCW vs. ECW and more. Here are some highlights from the interview:

Working with Paul Heyman:
I came into ECW after talking with RVD, Tommy Dreamer and Paul Heyman at an event in Atlanta and it was an honor working for the evil creative genius of Paul. He actually sat down with me and helped me with my character, moves and attitude… something few office guys beyond Arn did in WCW.
 
Backstage Attitude In WCW vs. ECW:
The crew in WCW when I got there in 1995 were a tight bunch of guys but by the end in 1999 a big divide had happened because of too many “bigger than thou” players had come into the company and created a separation in the locker room. Not all the in coming talent had the “better than thou” attitude and were actually great teachers and friends… but the entire ECW locker room and crew ALL had the attitude of wanting the best for the whole of the show. They welcomed me lime I belonged and that was humbling to me. I was honored to be considered extreme.
 
Sting in WWE:
Sting is one of the few men in the wrestling business I’m blessed to still know as a friend and as I told him the week of his WWE 2K15 announcement that this whole WWE deal was and is a well deserved honor for his blood, sweat and tears that he gave to wrestling. I’m very happy that he gained this honor for his character and today’s fans can respect his work.
Scotty Riggs also talks more on his friend Sting, WWE, Eric Bischoff, his time in WCW, his current health, what he’s been up to recently and much more. You can read the interview in its entirety at this link.

WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross once called the WWE World Heavyweight Title “the ultimate dream of everyone who aspires to be a wrestler.” Indeed, whether it was The Dirtiest Player in the Game or The Demon from Death Valley, the Superstars who have captured sports-entertainment’s ultimate prize have realized a goal that millions fantasized about, but only 44 men have accomplished.

It’s been more than 50 years since the WWE World Heavyweight Championship was first established on April 25, 1963. Since then, the world has seen 10 different United States Presidents, the innovation of the personal computer and the rise and fall of Crystal Pepsi. Through it all, the title has remained the pinnacle of sports-entertainment competition.

Editor’s note: I love lists, and normally I agree with WWE’s staff, but Hulk vs. Andre is NOT #1?  Man, that’s a stretch.
