• Ric Flair Stopped WWF Legend From Defeating Triple H In 5 Seconds
On the latest episode of his weekly ‘Wooooo Nation UNCENSORED’ podcast, Ric Flair claimed that he had to talk Randy Savage out of defeating Triple H in a 5 second squash match back in the day, when all 3 of them were wrestling for Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling.
Jean-Paul Lévesque (Triple H) was already about to leave WCW by the end of December 1994, while The Macho Man had just joined the promotion shortly before that.
Here’s what The Nature Boy said:
“Randy came in and Hunter was leaving, that’s when I had something to say about it. It was Randy’s opinion that he beat Hunter in 5 seconds. I said, ‘Hunter has been here, he’s an established commodity. How about you wrestle Arn Anderson for 15 minutes and go to a draw?’.
[Savage] called me at home screaming. He said, ‘I blew up!’ I said, ‘Buy a Stairmaster.’ That idea of creaming the guy coming in, forget that.
That’s why I was the guy to get creamed (lose), you’re not gonna cream some kid on his way out on a high road like Hunter was. Not gonna happen – not on my watch.”

• Old School WWF Veteran Celebrates His Birthday
Old School WWF Veteran Bull Buchanan (Real name: Barry Buchanan) turns 54 today.
Buchanan first joined the World Wrestling Federation in 1997 as Recon, a member of The Truth Commission.
After the faction disbanded in 1998, Recon continued to tag with his Truth Commission comrade Sniper for a few weeks and together they were known as “Armageddon”.
In 2000, he returned as Bull Buchanan and teamed with WWF Legend The Big Boss Man for a while before joining Stevie Richards’ heel stable “Right to Censor”.
The last we have seen of him was when he (then known as B2) accompanied John Cena to the ring in late 2002 and early 2003, before being released from the company.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BULL BUCHANAN!
