Jesse Ventura Shoots On Hulk Hogan

Published by:

One of the best commentator’s from the 80’s was Jesse Ventura. Ventura played the “heel” role in WWF while commenting much like JBL does now.  Before he was a commentator Jesse  was a Wrestler until an injury forced him out of the ring in the early 80’s. Although he didn’t wrestle no more Jesse is still remembered has one of the most colorful and entertaining talents the industry has ever seen. After he was done with commentating (his late stint was in WCW), he went on to become the Governor of Minnesota. So to say the former governor/pro wrestler is well respected is an understatement.

While Jesse was busy commentating as a heel, he had one of the greatest faces (good guy) the industry has ever seen in Hulk Hogan.  The Hulkster lead the WWF and Vince Mcmahon to heights neither have ever seen. While Hogan was making the crowd go wild, Jesse was telling them what a fraud the Hulk was and how they shouldn’t trust the Hulkster.

Although Jesse was saying all this on national tv, him and Hogan was actually really close and good friends behind the scenes that was until Ventura had a court case where Vince Mcmahon was under oath.  They asked Vince if wrestling has ever had an union or has anyone ever tried to start a union. He said no there is no union but Jesse Ventura tried to start one. They asked him how did he know and his answer was because Hulk Hogan told him. So the Hulkster outed Jesse to Vince. So listen below and find out why Jesse ain’t a big friend of Hogan’s anymore.

 

Eric Bischoff Shoots On Why He Hated Lex Luger

Published by:

Eric Bischoff is someone who knows controversy. His rise to the top of WCW and his ablity to be one of the only other promoters to actually compete and almost beat Vince Mcmhaon at this own game makes him one of the most respected men in this industry.

One of the ways he was able to beat Vince was by dipping into his talent pool. One of the guys he got when he first took over WCW besides Scott Hall and Kevin Nash was Lex Luger. In WWF Lex was known as the “All American” Lex Luger and was one of Vince’s top stars. But in mid 1995 Luger’s WWF contract was up for negotiation and he had a handshake agreement that he was going to stay with WWF. Meanwhile In WCW they was getting ready for their first WCW Monday Night Nitro and they wanted some surprises on the first show. Well guess what newly returned star showed up on Nitro?

So Lex Luger returned to WCW under Eric Bischoff but was all well? Even though Lex was huge star in pro wrestling a lot of wrestlers in the back and some of the promoters did not like “The Total Package”. According to Eric Bsichoff in the shoot below he did not really like Lex Luger either. He said Lex was perceived as “arrogant” and that his wife was friend’s with Elizabeth (Elizabeth (Randy Savage’s Ex Wife) passed away while she was with Lex Luger of an Overdose). So listen below to Eric Bischoff tell what he really thinks about “The Total Package” Lex Luger.
