Classic WWF/E stories and anecdotes
I thought a thread containing stories and anecdotes (not those myths like Steph getting banged by Macho etc) would be quite interesting, especially in the golden times unlike now.

Here's my first contribution:

an incident involving Eddie and Mark Copani that was never publicized, but contributed to his being dropped when the media heat came in on the Hassan deal.

He was seen as a "legend" among the wrestlers. Mark Copani (Muhammad Hassan) and Guerrero a few months back had a verbal altercation when he came to Smackdown. Copani, simply not knowing any better, told Eddie to stop using his finisher, the camel clutch, When word got out what he had done, Copani was sat down and told, "Eddie Guerrero is a legend in this business. He grew up in the business. You don't ever tell him anything. You listen to him. Do you know who invented that camel clutch you're doing"" Hassan said, "The Sheik." Hassan, who was being groomed as the top heel in the brand before things fell apart there, was told, "No, it was Eddie's father. Don't you ever question him again or you'll never work in this company."

Indeed, when UPN wanted the Hassan character off Smackdown, one of the reasons WWE killed the character completely as opposed to moving him to Raw was because of the sentiment over how Mark Copani handled the situation. When his name comes up and you hear wrestlers make cryptic remarks about the guy playing the role, some of that was because to those who knew, he had committed a major sin in mouthing off to someone as well liked as Guerrero.

This is great reading. Obviously some are BS but a fair few of these are true.

Re: Classic WWF/E stories and anecdotes
I found another golden one.

Back in the early 80's again. This is before Vince McMahon put the "Death Knell" on the wrestling industry dispelling making the public believe "wrestling was real". The territory Dog was in Easily was the poorest Demographic in the country for the business. This is Mid-South Territory Louisiana and surrounding states. 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.

Re: Classic WWF/E stories and anecdotes
Wow, I can only imagine the reaction from fellow workers when Muhammad Hassan had the audacity to tell somebody like Eddie G what to do! Pretty much killing your career in one go, when you think how well respected he was by the McMahon and upper echelon talent - Triple H, Chris Benoit, William Regal, Bradshaw, Batista.

Only ones I know of, were ones we hear at the HOF. Ones Bret told were funniest. About Vince McMahon and other guys(I think Road Warriors?) at a bar. And Owen Hart and the pizza at the hotel.

It was actually the Hart Foundation and Vince took The Hart Attack off of the bar.

I can't really remember the exact details, but it was in Foley's first book. Apparently at the airport, some creep with a video camera was recording Chyna's ass and Foley went up and told him off and demanded that he delete the footage, only for Owen(the jokester he is) to come over and demand that Foley get a photo with the guy and Foley kept refusing and the guy got it all on tape so now this random dude has a video of 90s Chyna's ass whilst Foley and Owen argue. Sick.
