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 … Continue reading An Audience with Eric Bischoff – Byker – 10 October 2018

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.

Smackdown – Newcastle Metroradio Arena, 6th November 2016

Now as I write for a wrestling magazine (the UK’s largest independently published magazine go be exact) you may think I am up-to-date with all things wrestling but sadly this isn’t the case. You see there simply aren’t enough hours in the day for me to watch everything I would like to and because of this some things don’t make the cut. Things have to be prioritised and given the amount of WWE content produced on a weekly basis and the amount of weeks we seemed to constantly be behind, the decision was made to write off WWE’s five hours of Raw and Smackdown (even if we’d usually get through them in less than two). Unfortunately for me, like many, neither Raw or Smackdown are currently must see TV so the decision was made to remove them from our schedule and unclutter our planner.

Vince and WWE Buying TNA

By Michael Brown

An oft asked question amongst wrestling fans is whether Vince McMahon will buy Dixie Carter’s Tennessee based TNA, Total Nonstop Action, promotion. Established in 2002 by Jeff and Jerry Jarrett, the promotion is the biggest and only real major alternative to the WWE. Sections of the wrestling fanbase have been clamouring for Vince to buy the promotion and incorporate it into the WWE behemoth. For the life of me I can’t understand why people would want that. Over the next thousand words or so, I’m going to attempt to explain to anyone in favour why it would be a horrendously bad idea.
