Online World of Wrestling is pleased to welcome Sergeant Slaughter into its Hall of Fame! Slaughter had an amazing career and his inclusion into the OWW Hall of Fame is long overdue.
OWW’s editor-in-chief David Buckler wrote this tribute to Sergeant Slaughter:
From the time of his debut in 1972 until he retired in the 1992, Sergeant Slaughter was one of the real stars in professional wrestling. The American patriot had major success in the NWA, AWA, and the WWF. His feuds with Pat Patterson, Bob Backlund, Stan Hansen, Larry Zbyszko, and the Iron Sheik are legendary. Among his many championships, Sergeant Slaughter famously defeated the Ultimate Warrior in 1991 to win the WWF world title. He then headlined WrestleMania VII, losing the belt to Hulk Hogan. At his peak Sergeant Slaughter was so famous that a cartoon version of his character was incorporated into the G.I. Joe toy line, animated series, and comic books. Slaughter is currently working in the WWE’s front offices. It is our pleasure to welcome Sergeant Slaughter into the OWW Hall of Fame!

Newsday.com presents a WWE Network ‘Legends’ House’ preview
WWE hall of famer “Rowdy” Roddy Piper turned to “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan, and with a regretful expression on his face asked, “A little stiff, huh?”
In the ’80s this line might have been muttered in the corner during some tag-team match in Altoona, Pa., the term “stiff” referring to nailing someone for real within the staged combat of pro wrestling.
But this time Piper and Duggan were conversing between bites of salad at Smith and Wollensky steakhouse in Manhattan while watching a sneak preview of the new WWE Network series “Legends’ House” with media members. The series premieres Thursday at 8 p.m.

Tencozy takes the NWA tag team titles from Irongodz in Japan on Sunday, April 6, 2014!
One year after the NWA landed in Japan at New Japan Pro Wrestling’s “Invasion Attack 2013,” at which then-NWA World Heavyweight Champion “Ironman” Rob Conway successfully defended the title against Satoshi Kojima, and thus began a battle for dominance between the two storied promotions, New Japan seems to have the upper hand.
The National Wrestling Alliance has announced the addition of Bayou Independent Wrestling and its promoter Josh Newell.
“We are pleased to add a quality promoter like Josh Newell to the National Wrestling Alliance,” said NWA CEO Chris Ronquillo. “NWA-BIW is a quality promotion and a great fit that rounds out our Louisiana coverage.”
Bayou Independent Wrestling, established in 2007, will hold its first event as a licensed NWA promotion on May 24 at the West Monroe Convention Center. NWA-BIW Southern Champion Steve Anthony will defend his title against former NWA National Heavyweight Champion Vordell Walker in an “I Quit” match.

Pro Wrestling: Between the Sheets
It’s safe to say that Wrestlemania 30 weekend was an emotional roller-coaster…in ways hoped for and expected, and in ways that no one would have expected.
Between the emotional highs of the WWE Hall of Fame and the speechs of Jake Roberts and Scott Hall… the once in a lifetime meeting in the same ring of Hulk Hogan, The Rock, and Stone Cold Steve Austin… Daniel Bryan’s Wrestlemania 30 wins against HHH and in the main event…the storyline emotional stunner of The Streak ending… and the very tragic real life passing of Jim Hellwig, the Ultimate Warrior, only 24 hours after what turned out to be his farewell appearance; Wrestlemania weekend provided an emotional roller-coaster likely never to be duplicated again.
