• Former TNA World Champion On Why Paul Heyman Wanted To Bring Him To RAW
During a recent appearance on Busted Open Radio, former TNA World Heavyweight Champion James Storm talked about reports of his WWE debut almost happening this year, and why Paul Heyman wanted him on RAW when he was the Executive Director.
Here’s what Storm said:
“I don’t think it was to come in for the [Royal] Rumble, because I never did say. You know how it is. You never know until it’s over with really. You’re in the ring, you head to the back and take your boots off.
But I kind of felt that way, because like I said, it was on that Thursday and I didn’t answer the email until I got back home on Wednesday.
And it was [Paul] Heyman that wanted to bring me into RAW and he was basically like, ‘Hey, I need guys like you that know how to work’ because I tell everybody all the time, ‘WWE, AEW, New Japan, they get guys that can do every move in the book.’ I said, ‘There ain’t no move that you’re going to come up with that one of those guys can’t do.’ I said, ‘There’s a lot of guys who don’t make it really believable even more’ in my eyes anyway.”

• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (October 22, 2005) – Old School Wrestling Legend Passed Away
On this day in 2005, we lost Old School Wrestling Legend The Crusher (Real name: Reginald Lisowski) at the age of 79 due to a brain tumor.
From 1949 to 1988, The Crusher wrestled for various old school territories, such as the American Wrestling Association (AWA), the World Wrestling Association (WWA) and the World Wide Wrestling Federation (WWWF) / World Wrestling Federation (WWF).
In 1994, he was inducted into the short-lived WCW Hall of Fame and it’s safe to say, that it’s only a matter of time before he will also be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame as part of their annual Legacy Wing inductions.
† REST IN PEACE CRUSHER!
July 11, 1926 – October 22, 2005
