• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (October 10, 1999) – Heroes of Wrestling
On this day in Pro Wrestling history on October 10, 1999, Fosstone Productions aired ‘Heroes of Wrestling’ LIVE on PPV from the Casino Magic in Bay St. Louis, Mississippi.
This should have been the first in a series of 4 PPVs, that would feature Old School 80s & 90s WWF/NWA/WCW Legends, but due to a low buy rate of only 29,000 pay-per-view buys, the plans for any shows events were canceled.
Jake Roberts appeared intoxicated (drunk and/or high) for his co-main event match against Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart, which is why promoter Bill Stone sent out the wrestlers that were scheduled for the main event, King Kong Bundy & Yokozuna, to team up with them, thus putting the 2 main events together into a Tag Team main event, in order to salvage the situation.
While this PPV has a very bad reputation among the internet fans, some calling it “The worst PPV ever” like Meltzer wrote in 1999, the event itself was still a lot more entertaining than 99% of the modern day WWE PG-Era (2008-now) shows.
Here are the PPV results:
The Samoan Swat Team defeated Marty Jannetty & Tommy Rogers
Greg Valentine defeated George Steele
2 Cold Scorpio defeated Julio Fantastico
The Bushwhackers defeated The Iron Sheik & Nikolai Volkoff
Tully Blanchard defeated Stan Lane
Abdullah the Butcher vs. One Man Gang ended in a double-count-out
Jimmy Snuka defeated Bob Orton Jr.
Jim Neidhart & King Kong Bundy defeated Jake Roberts & Yokozuna
• Chris Jericho Buries WWE Creative Live On AEW Dynamite (Video)
During last night’s episode of AEW Dynamite on TNT, AEW World Champion Chris Jericho was talking about the members of his stable “Inner Circle”.
During this segment, he was talking about Jake Hager (f.k.a Jack Swagger in WWE) and the fans began chanting “We The People”.
This led to Jericho saying the following:
“We The People sucks and it’s dead and buried. It was a stupid idea from bad creative and all that’s gone.”
