An Audience with Eric Bischoff – Byker – 10 October 2018

During the evening with Eric, one of the topics that will be touched on is ’83 Weeks with Eric Bischoff’

Since 1984 every wrestling promoter has tried to best Vince McMahon and the World Wrestling Federation unsuccessfully… except one, Eric Bischoff. Eric got his foot in the door with Ted Turner’s organization as a “C-Team Announcer” and a few short years later, he was President of World Championship Wrestling (WCW). Eric signed Hulk Hogan, turned a profit for the company for the very first time, started Monday Night Nitro, created the nWo, and beat Vince McMahon’s Monday Night RAW head-to-head in Monday Night Wars 83 consecutive times. 83 Weeks will take a deep dive into the highs and lows of Eric Bischoff’s unparalleled successes in the wrestling business.

Hear from the man himself, LIVE & UNCUT!

NORTH Wrestling / NCL.10 / A New Error

It feels like only yesterday that Andrew Bowers and I sat down for a pint and discussed his upcoming first show ‘Brace Yourself’. At the time I remember loving his enthusiasm, being impressed by his plans (I loved the idea of a Championship cape) but being slightly concerned by the venue as at the time i had never been to an enjoyable show at The Riverside. Nearly two years after that first meeting and Andrew is ready to put on his tenth show and I have now attended nine very enjoyable shows at The Riverside. Continue reading

Scott Steiner Conference Call

Very few people in wrestling can boast to have won championships in major promotions in four different decades, Scott Steiner (aka ‘The Big Bad Booty Daddy’, aka ‘Big Poppa Pump, aka ‘The Genetic Freak’) is one of the few. Steiner started his professional career in 1986 following impressing in amateur wrestling in college and by 1989 Steiner was an NWA World Tag Team champion alongside his brother Rick. The Steiners went on to become on of the best tag teams of all time and are one of few teams to have help the tag team gold in WCW, IWGP and WWF then after an unceremonious split from his brother Scott showed off his talents as a singles competitor with multiple WCW Television, United States and World Championship reigns between 1999 and 2002.
