• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (October 15, 2006) – Famous WCW/WWF Jobber Passed Away
On this day in 2006, we lost Old School WCW/WWF Jobber “Jumping” Joey Maggs at the young age of 37.
As of this day the cause of death still remains unknown.
Joe Maggs became a regular enhancement talent or like they say ‘Jobber To The Stars’ in Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling by 1991 and continued to put WCW Wrestlers over until he retired from pro wrestling in 1998 because of a shoulder injury.
Over the years he also did several televised jobs for the rival promotion, Vince McMahon’s World Wrestling Federation, in between his WCW stints, putting over WWF Superstars in 1992, 1993 & 1994.
His biggest accomplishment was without a doubt, when he wrestled for the vacant WCW World Heavyweight Championship, as an entrant in the 60-man 3-ring Battle Royal at the ‘WCW World War 3 1995’ PPV.
REST IN PEACE JOEY MAGGS!
• How Much Money Can CM Punk Make For A PPV Match For NWA World Title?
During a recent interview on The NWA Pod, NWA World’s Heavyweight Champion Nick Aldis noted that CM Punk will easily make seven figures if he comes to NWA for a World Title match against him on pay-per-view.
Below is what Aldis said:
“Who’s gonna draw the most money? …Brock Lesnar, John Cena, Triple H or CM Punk. I’ll tell you this for free – Punk could negotiate a deal with us and we could do a PPV tomorrow where he keeps half the revenue. We’d do it no questions asked. If we said we’ll do all this, we’ll build all this and you come out of retirement because you wanna honor the business like Harley Race…
You know, Punk was at Harley’s funeral. Punk paid his respects the same way I did. This is not me trying to cut an angle, I have great respect for Punk… He has the power to do that tomorrow.
I mean look at the packages we put together for me and Cody. Imagine the kind of packages we could do with Punk. He could sell out Chicago like that, you know? I genuinely believe he could take the reigns on the entire business side of it and he could make seven figures to wrestle me for the NWA Title.”
