^I recall a story similar to that but I thought the guy with the camera was zooming in on either Sable or Debra's boobs.

I heard a good one from a Perry Saturn shoot thats on Youtube.

Just after him, Benoit, Malenko and Guerrero left WCW they were in a Hooters and a bloke on a stool was getting rowdy with Malenko at the bar. Saturn went up to him and the bloke gave him some grief so he kicked the stool as hard as he could and it hit a waitress in the head, knocking the bloke on the floor in the process.

Just as it happened people were singing "Goldberg, Goldberg, Goldberg" thinking Saturn was Goldberg. They then proceeded to leave and Malenko says "Come on Goldberg". Lol.

Rob Van Dam was once asked was there any guy he wrestled, who he thought was a dick and he mentions Chris Jericho, when RVD first came to WWE. RVD says he and Jericho were previously pretty close but Jericho was upset about his position in the company and how RVD came in, working with Rock & Austin, which Jericho felt took from him. RVD called him such a "political bitch" at the time. Christian & Test informed RVD that Jericho was pissed and was going to try & fight Van Dam. RVD replies with "sweet, where's he at".

He also told a story about, from being on the road so much for so many years, being excited at getting time off for the holidays. Suddenly, he said it changed to WWE doing the Tribute To The Troops but it was an optional trip, except Vince expected everybody to go. Van Dam said he raised his hand and told Vince "no thank you". Afterwards, Vince had a talk with him, trying to convince Van Dam that it would be a life changing experience. Van Dam said he didn't want to take a 24 hour flight in a flying wharehouse and doesn't even want to go to Ohio tomorrow. Vince tells him he appreciates that but still tries to convince him to go. Van Dam says at that point, he was so pissed, he wanted to fight Vince. Laurinitis tried to convince RVD to go and RVD still refused. RVD says the next week, he & Vince talked and RVD was certain he was going to have to tell Vince "pick a hand". Van Dam said he felt offended that Vince thought he could force him to go somewhere he didn't want to go, he didn't care about getting fired because he hated working there anyway. In the end, the location was changed to a less secure place and it wasn't really a must to make the trip.

Bret Hart should've defeat Rock at March 31 for the IC title. Bret said it was a plan by Shawn Michaels and Triple H to bury both him (To put him in the midcard) and the Rock (Who was Triple H's rival, and took the IC title away from him).

It made no sense for Bret to beat Rocky, especially coming off an angle a month prior for the WWE Title. I understand the history of HBK & HHH burying people but this story sounds more like Bret's ego coming into play, as if he really needed a win over young Rocky Maivia.

JYD was selling out 30,000 seat auditoriums....WEEKLY. The public adored him fiercely, and again realize, the public believed Pro-Wrestling to be real. It was so rough the security for that company was stuff of legend. Bill Watts the promoter even had a place called the "room" where people that jumped a wrestler were taken too, beaten, and by Watts sometimes too. This all happened.

JYD had a program against The Fabulous Freebirds (Michael Hayes, Terry Gordy, and Buddy Rogers). Make long story short - Michael Hayes has this cream that magicians use to create fire (Y'all DON"T KNOW just how much money that magicians cream made for wrestling btw), and he throws it in JYDs' face. Big Ol Fireball goes into Dogs face, and he sells it well. The audience is freaking, and the Freebirds run like madmen into a car that speed them out of the building. This was typical back then in this territory cause fans of JYD would wait outside the auditorium to beat-up JYDs opponents.

The Junkyard Dog is Blind! He'll never be able to see! His career is over! The public outcry was overwhelming. The big sell for the auditorium was JYDs farewell speech. Complete almost instantaneous sell-out.

Audience that night is SOBBING when he's led out to the ring. Selling it all, Dog has the dark glasses on and is holding onto a guys shoulder in front of him being led. Theyre in the ring finally, Security in the place is on High-Alert. Dogs talking - then all of a sudden the "Freebirds" show up.

Place is absolutely Out-of-control! Freebirds get in the ring where JYDs standing there by himself. What happens next was not "planned") They get in the ring, and "Bam" Some brotha dressed like "Dolemite" jumps two rows and is in the ring in-between Dog and The Birds. With a gun outstretched right at Micheal "P.S." Hayes. "I GOT YOUR BACK DOG! DOG I GOT YOUR BACK!!! For a few brief seconds Hayes thinks himself a dead man, and Dog has the gunman right in front of him, but he can't "see" remember. So he is unable to help because he CANT RUIN THE ANGLE!

Like Ants security swarms this guy! They tackled him hard simultaneously! Reports were he was elevated even in the air from impact like the Iwo Jima flag, and then smothered him like Secret Service. The Freebirds run like madmen into a car that speeds them out of the building.

That's mental, gotta love the territory days.

Saturn and Raven had a strap-on on their forehead sometimes on the road called the "rhino". They created a slide and then went down the slide right into a girl's pussy with the rhino

When DX invaded Nitro, the WCW boys knew about it and loved it. The nWo boys, Nash, Hall, Konnan etc wanted to let DX into the building. Hall and Nash actually were pissed at Bischoff at that point and wanted to go out and hug HHH and X-Pac but they were stopped. Few years later TNA had the opportunity to somewhat "invade" the WWE too because the WWE was shooting a commercial near TNA's arena. Instead of turning off the lights and invading the place or something, they greeted the WWE wrestlers with cheesy balloons and cookies Yeah, it sucked. The TNA wrestlers were pissed but Dixie was scared the WWE would sue them if they had messed with their shooting.

I highly recommend the MLW podcast with Konnan and Court Bauer every week. Especially Konnan tells great stories.

Here's another oldschool Mid-South one involving General Skandor Akbar and Hacksaw Jim Duggan.

In May, 1985, there was a match in Jackson, Mississippi between Hacksaw Jim Duggan and Kamala at the Fairgrounds Coliseum. Near the end of the match, General Akbar became involved and burned Duggan with a fireball. It led to a "Special Bulletin" on TBS's Mid-South Wrestling TV program...right after a match involving Brad Armstrong and Jake "The Snake" Roberts in the semi-finals of the tournament for the Mid-South TV title. Watts interrupted the program to make the announcement of Duggan's injury.



Fast-forward to June 1, 1985...the Superdome in New Orleans. Every three months or so were the Mid-South's big Superdome Extravaganza supercards. Among the matches on this night were Sgt. Slaughter and Terry Daniels vs. the Dirty White Boys in a "Bootcamp" match, NWA World champion Ric Flair vs. Terry Taylor, the Snowman vs. Jake Roberts for the Mid-South TV title, and Hacksaw Jim Duggan vs. Kamala in a highly-publicized rematch from the night that Akbar burned Duggan.

When Akbar arrived at the arena, he was greeted by New Orleans Police who had informed him there were at least 10 threats to Akbar's life being phoned in to the police. One of the officers pulls out a bulletproof vest and informs Akbar for his safety he will want to wear this. Akbar at first refuses, but he said that the officer told him, "Either you wear this or you don't go on tonight." He went ahead and wore it, and fortunately nothing happened.

I recall one about Andre picking a cop up in the air and the other cops tried to arrest him, not knowing they were friends and were just playing around. Would have been funny to see though.

Bret wouldn't win the IC title after winning the WWE Championship over the course of the last 5 years. He was above that title at that point.

Bret Hart circa 1991-1997 was an even worse Dick than both Hogan and Shawn Michaels to the fans and to the locker room

always bitter, always marking out for himself back then and always had conditions when he put somebody over (if he ever did) always whining about how he was buried. Hogan most likely saw how much bad and whiny Bret was as a champion and rightfully buried him at Wrestlemania 9

at least even if shawn cried when he was told to do a Job he would still do it, he just didn't like it.. contrast this to bret who never ever would do what's required.

plus Bret is the poorest drawing champion of all time.

I'm not trolling or exaggerating but aside from Benoit I haven't seen a worse resume of heinous feats from a Wrestler.. sad part is post Screwjob the worst got even worse (if that was even possible)
