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.

AS I SEE IT: Reactions to the passing of the Warrior
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.

New WWE Divas Champion Paige
spoke with The UK’s Independent about her big win over AJ Lee on Monday’s RAW. She commented on what it was like to get the win:
“Oh my gosh, you have no idea. I lost my mind. Firstly just being in the ring with AJ who I’ve always looked up to, she’s an incredible talent and a woman to be around, and then being on Raw is just insane. I’ve been working my whole career to get to this point, it’s been nearly nine years now, and it was just incredible. I couldn’t stop crying, I haven’t stopped talking to my family about it, it’s overwhelming especially getting so much support from the fans and backstage. It’s been magical.”
