Latest News from around the World

Wrestling Observer

After only 3 weeks in charge of creative, “Cowboy” Bill Watts is already gone from WWF after an argument with Vince McMahon over the future booking of the company. Watts quits the promotion in a huff, feeling that McMahon had gone back on his promise to cede full booking authority. Watts’ beef stems from several run-ins, but the main one surrounds the future course of the WWF World Heavyweight title. Watts feels strongly that Bret Hart should be the long-term champion, while McMahon overrules him and deems that Shawn Michaels will emerge as the Federation’s newest front-man come WrestleMania. In addition, Watts is dead-set on pushing “Psycho” Sid as the promotion’s new top heel; establishing several monster heels, as opposed to letting the babyface dominate virtually every encounter, as per McMahon’s convention. Word is Watts wanted to also make changes in the locker room similar to what he had done in WCW (fining guys for being late, no faces and heels hanging out in public, etc.) and Vince felt it was unnecessary.


In other moments, Vince McMahon have harsh words for WCW’s promotional methods and roster, though McMahon professes that he would like to work with Sting, Brian Pillman, and Harlem Heat (Booker T & Stevie Ray) in the future.


UFC is working on a PPV in February that will abandon the tournament format and instead just have 5 traditional fights with different guys. They want to bring in a big name pro-wrestler and the name that has been batted around is Scott Steiner. But that’s a long shot to happen, since Steiner isn’t hurting for money and probably won’t want to risk injury which could cost him and his brother their $22,500-per-month deal in World Championship Wrestling.


It appears that the Hart family’s plans to put together an old Stampede show to honor the 50th anniversary of Stu Hart’s first match will actually happen and will feature both WWF and WCW stars. Bret and Owen Hart, Shawn Michaels, 1-2-3 Kid, Razor Ramon, and Davey Boy Smith are all scheduled to work the show, along with WCW stars Chris Benoit and The Amazing French Canadians. The show will be called Showdown at the Corral and will take place in December.


Taz did an interview talking about Lou Thesz being his childhood hero growing up and there’s been talk of bringing Thesz in to be in Taz’s corner at ECW shows.


Former WWF star Ludvig Borga (Tony Halme) was in a national Busch beer commercial, as a lumberjack.


Chris Benoit is now being billed as “the Canadian Crippler” in WCW.


King Kong Bundy will be appearing on an episode of Married With Children this week.


El Canek and Blue Demon began their first reign as CMLL World Tag Team champions, when they took the titles away from Rayo Jr. And Dos Caras at CMLL Domingos Arena Mexico.


Dave Meltzer says that he thinks the best worker in the world today is Manami Toyota and says that even her off-nights are better than most people’s great nights. He says that in a big match situation, guys like Shawn Michaels, Rey Misterio Jr., Kenta Kobashi, etc. are better. But on a consistent night-by-night basis, Toyota delivers every time.


New champion in FMW as, the previously vacant FMW Independent World Jr. Heavyweight championship was won by Damian 666 after defeating Halloween. This victory marks his second reign with the title.


Hunter Hearst Helmsley has gotten a lot of heat with the rest of the locker room due to his recent attitude, and there are signs that it could turn into a very bad situation if not handled soon. Insider claims that he has got a stern warning from WWF management.


The UWA World Tag Team titles changed hands, as Loco Valentino and Pirata Morgan became the new champions, ending the reign of Gran Apache and Negro Navarro.


AAA promoter Anthony Pena had a meeting with Televisa this week and threatened to pull AAA from their channel if they didn’t stop airing EMLL shows. It was a risky gamble because AAA desperately needs Televisa and they would have been in trouble if Televisa had called his bluff.


The AAA Mexican National Middleweight title changed hands, as El Fantasma became the new champion, ending the reign of Jerry Estrada at AAA La Lucha Del Honor.

Randy Savage & Maxx Payne vs. Hugh Morrus & Kevin Sullivan w/ Woman

The Laughing Man, is a strange wrestler that is wearing a singlet covered in question marks. Big and tough, the New Jersey native can trade punches with the best of them, while laughing frequently.

At first glance he does not appear to pose any threat, but Kevin Sullivan exude and aura of menace. He has a brilliant mind and a penchant for violence, a mixture between Napoleon and Hannibal Lecter. A good brawler, he is perhaps best known for his feuds with the “American Dream” Dusty Rhodes and Mike Graham in the NWA’s Championship Wrestling from Florida. He is a Boston bad boy, who stomped heroes like Brian Pillman and Cactus Jack with the Sam Adams-soaked rage of a Beantown bar fighter. Throughout his career he has been involved in many of the most brutal matches in wrestling history and will use any weapon that comes to hand during the course of a match.

Both disturbing and disturbed, the 6’6″, 340-pound Maxx Payne is the ultimate loner. Is Payne confused? Neurotic? Psychotic? A master of mind games?

Maxx Payne has a wide range of wrestling holds, but his favorites are those that cause the most pain to his opponents.

“Macho Man” Randy Savag ie is a famously intense and fearless competitor, also known for his suicide runs.

 

The four wrestlers clobbered each other with everything they had as they brawled throughout Worcesters’ DCU Arena.

 

The match went back-and-forth.

Macho Man connects with an Diving Double Axe-Handle on Hugh Morrus.

The Barbarian and his “Faces of Fear”tag-team partner “Meng” are considered by many industry insiders to be the strongest – and legitimately toughest – grapplers that the sport has ever seen.
