• “That will be The Rock’s farewell” – Paul Heyman On WrestleMania 38 Rumors
During a recent interview with Inside The Ropes, Paul Heyman was asked about the rumors of The Rock vs. Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 38, and if The Great One sits at The Tribal Chief’s table.
Here’s what Heyman said:
“Well, you ask multiple questions in one diatribe, so I’ll try to answer them as succinctly as possible. One, Rock schmock. Who doesn’t want to main event WrestleMania against Roman Reigns?
Anybody who says they wouldn’t be interested in a WrestleMania main event is lying to you. Anybody who suggests they wouldn’t be interested in the WrestleMania main event against Roman Reigns is lying to you.
Roman Reigns is the most dominant WrestleMania main eventer in history. And Rock is just one of many people who are clamoring to step into the ring with Roman Reigns at any time, especially at WrestleMania.
As for whether The Rock is a member of the table? I serve as Special Counsel to the Tribal Chief, Roman Reigns. That is not a subject Roman Reigns wishes to address publicly at this time, either in The Rock’s favor or to The Rock’s detriment, because The Rock may not be welcome at our table. Roman Reigns will let you know when it’s appropriate for Roman Reigns to let you know.
If The Rock steps into the ring with Roman Reigns at any time, let alone at WrestleMania, that will be The Rock’s farewell, whether The Rock wants it to be or not.”

• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (August 10, 1996) – WCW Hog WILD 1996
On this day in Pro Wrestling history on August 10, 1996, Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling aired ‘WCW Hog Wild 1996’ LIVE on PPV from the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in Sturgis, South Dakota.
This was the very first out of a total of 4 annual WCW events (1996-1999) from the Sturgis Harley Davidson Rally, and while all four events are usually destroyed by the critics for not earning a cent in revenue money because it was totally free for the bikers in attendance, they were still pretty cool & entertaining to watch for a fan, as big outdoor events always had kind of a special feeling to them.
Here are the results:
WCW World Cruiserweight Championship: Rey Mysterio Jr. (c) defeated The Ultimate Dragon
Scott Norton defeated Ice Train
Madusa defeated Bull Nakano
Chris Benoit defeated Dean Malenko
WCW World Tag Team Championship: Harlem Heat (c) defeated The Steiner Brothers
WCW United States Heavyweight Championship: Ric Flair (c) defeated Eddie Guerrero
The Outsiders defeated Sting and Lex Luger
WCW World Heavyweight Championship: Hollywood Hogan defeated The Giant (c)
