• Big Show Reveals The Only Promo From Him That Vince McMahon Liked
During a recent appearance on Wrestling With Freddie podcast, Old School WWF/WCW Legend The Big Show talked about the only promo from him that Vince McMahon liked.
Below is the story:
“I remember taking Vince’s promo class. I think the only promo that I ever did for Vince that he ever actually liked was the promo when I talked about why you shouldn’t let me come to your house if I’m your enemy.
Basically the premise was, if I’m your enemy, why you shouldn’t invite me to your house. I said, ‘I’m going to go to your master bathroom and I’m going to blow your bathroom up. I’m going to clog the toilet.’
Vince loves that sh*t humor, but it was a good story of how I’m going to get close to you, how I’m going to be your friend, and when you’re not looking, I’m going to go into your main bathroom and destroy it.
That was the only promo I think I’ve ever done that he liked.”

• ON THIS DAY IN WWF HISTORY (January 20, 1985) – WWF Georgia Championship Wrestling on TBS
On this day in 1985, the World Wrestling Federation aired another episode of their TV show ‘World Championship Wrestling’ on Ted Turner’s channel TBS.
‘World Championship Wrestling’ originally belonged to the Georgia Championship Wrestling territory, which Vince McMahon bought in July 1984 (leading to the infamous “Black Saturday”).
After the first ever WrestleMania event in 1985, McMahon sold the TV-show and the timeslot on TBS that came with it, to the Atlanta based Jim Crockett Promotions, who kept the ‘World Championship Wrestling’ name and continued the show as a weekly Saturday night Wrestling show.
Ted Turner eventually bought Jim Crockett Promotions in late 1988 and renamed it ‘World Championship Wrestling’, which ironically was also the name of its weekly A-show, until they changed the show’s name to ‘WCW Saturday Night’ in 1992.
The World Wrestling Federation product ran on this show from July 14, 1984 until March 25, 1985.
This episode featured pre-taped matches & interviews on the road to the first ever WrestleMania event.
