Below are the top Pro-Wrestling news stories of the day:
• “Vince holds the legacy of his father and grandfather so highly” – Hall Of Famer On Why Vince McMahon Will Never Sell WWE
On a recent episode of his weekly ’83 Weeks’ podcast, former WCW President Eric Bischoff claimed that WWE Owner Vince McMahon is never going to sell his company and would rather give it to a family member instead.
Here’s what the 2021 WWE Hall of Famer said:
“One of the reasons I was so steadfast in my opinion that WWE under Vince McMahon will never sell is because of the strong impression that I had over many, many years and even working with Vince very closely for a short time, it’s so obvious to me that Vince holds the legacy of his father and grandfather so highly.
It’s evident when you walk into Vince’s office, right? It’s not a mystery, you can figure it out pretty quickly. I’ve just always believed because of that legacy and how highly apparent to me that Vince holds that legacy, and that he’s got Stephanie and Shane and by virtue of marriage Triple H, and he’s got grandchildren.
I just would believe that, I’ve always believed that Vince would be far more predisposed to allowing his family to carry on that legacy that means so much to Vince.”
There were rumors earlier this year of WWE being sold to Disney, but those rumors weren’t true at all.
A lot of people think Triple H would be the one who will eventually run WWE after Vince, but it’s all speculation at this point. Triple H’s health will play a major role in this decision, since it’s yet to be seen if he’ll ever return to his high-pressure backstage job in WWE after his heart issue.

• “It is just weird” – Disco Inferno On Bryan Danielson’s Heel Turn In AEW
Old School WCW Veteran Disco Inferno appeared on Konnan’s Keepin’ It 100 podcast, where he criticized the recent heel turn of Bryan Danielson (fka Daniel Bryan) in All Elite Wrestling.
Here’s what the former WCW World Tag Team Champion had to say on the booking of Bryan’s AEW heel turn:
“And this is bizarre too. Whatever he is doing. What if the Dark Order were heels and he was a babyface that would be like Yo. He is like an alone heel beating up everybody in the babyface group. That is like a weird way to book this. He has no help. He has called guys out and just pummeling them in the ring every week. It is just weird.”
Bryan is the current #1 contender for the AEW World Championship, and will face “Hangman” Adam Page for the Title soon.
Disco Inferno wrestled for Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling from 1995 until the promotion was sold in March 2001.
At one point, he was a member of the red & black nWo Wolfpac version of the New World Order, which he said was the highlight of his entire pro-wrestling career.

• WWE Hall Of Famer Recalls His Backstage Fight With Eddie Guerrero
WWF Legend Kurt Angle was interviewed by Chris Jericho on a recent edition of the weekly ‘Talk Is Jericho’ podcast, where Angle talked about a backstage fight he had with Eddie Guerrero back in 2004 after a segment on SmackDown.
Here’s what the 2017 WWE Hall of Famer had to say:
“What happened was we had a fight in the ring. We are getting heat on Eddie. It was Luther Reigns, Mark Jindrak, and myself. I didn’t touch Eddie, so I couldn’t have been the one that stiffed him. Mark Jindrak and Luther Reigns were getting heat on Eddie and when I got backstage, Eddie came back.
After the show, we all wait in Gorilla and shake each other’s hands. I went to shake his hand and say, ‘thank you, Eddie’. He goes, ‘no, no. What you did out there was wrong. You were stiffing me’. I said, ‘Eddie, I didn’t touch you.’ He said, ‘bullsh*t. You were stiffing me, you were beating me up’. I pushed him. I didn’t know what to do, he made me so mad so I pushed him.
He double legs me, an amateur wrestling double leg. I get him down and got him in a front headlock and I started choking him out. So, Big Show comes in, and this is embarrassing, talk about having little guy syndrome.
Big Show grabs me by the back of my singlet, pulls me up and puts me in one corner, takes Eddie, puts Eddie in another corner. He says, ‘you guys are done.’ Now I’m pissed at Big Show, I said, ‘don’t you ever touch me like that again.’ Big Show was so damn strong, he lifted me up with one hand and my legs were kicking.
We get backstage and I felt bad. So, I go to Eddie’s locker room to apologize. I get back there and I knock on the door. He opens the door and doesn’t say anything. I said, ‘Eddie, listen. I just want to say I’m sorry’. You know what Eddie said to me? ‘I’m not ready yet’.
So, I go inside and I started whacking him. I’m fighting Eddie, we are throwing punches. Bradshaw pulled us apart and is like, ‘guys, you’ve got to stop’. I’m like, ‘well, I said I was sorry and this arsehole doesn’t want to say he’s sorry back’. But that’s Eddie.
Eddie is going to apologize when he wants to and I should have known that.”
Eddie Guerrero and Kurt Angle feuded for most of 2004, with their biggest matches taking place at the WrestleMania XX and SummerSlam 2004 PPVs.

• John Morrison Reacts To Edge Mentioning His WWE Release On RAW
WWE Hall Of Famer Edge made his return to WWE programming on this week’s RAW.
Edge said there’s new opponents for him to face on RAW, like AJ Styles, Finn Balor, Damian Priest & Big E.
The Miz & Maryse then made their return to WWE. Miz said he can’t believe they gave Edge the big return welcome when he keeps leaving and coming back. Miz said he can’t believe he’s not on Edge’s radar.
Edge said he thought Miz was still dressing up as a Genie on Dancing With The Stars. Edge speculated that Miz came out to interrupt him as that will put him in the main event scene.
Edge said Miz has people on other shows (referring to CM Punk on AEW Dynamite) saying his name just to get a cheap reaction, but he ends up leaving his partner to get fired. Edge then issued a challenge to The Miz, but Miz said no to a match.
"Six months ago, I was WWE Champion! When's the last time you held a major title, @EdgeRatedR? Oh that's right …. you were in the opening match when I was defending the WWE Title against @JohnCena at #WrestleMania!"@mikethemiz #WWERaw pic.twitter.com/aJnvKZAmfx

“You use this to get notoriety for your next endeavor, for your next reality show, for your next dance competition while you leave your partners high and dry to get fired.”
Morrison tweeted the following about this:
“Hey Edge high & dry?? #JohnnyDripDrip is never not wet
By the way when you jump into The Miz’s water be prepared for a slaughter.”

• AEW Star Is Open To Rumored Match With Ric Flair
“The Nature Boy” Ric Flair was granted his release from WWE earlier this year, and he’s free to do whatever he wants now.
Since then, he has appeared at NWA & AAA PPVs. He even got physical with Kenny Omega at a show for AAA.
You can watch it below:
During a recent edition of his podcast, Flair (age 72) revealed that a promoter in Israel wants him to face AEW’s TNT Champion Sammy Guevara.
Flair noted that he’d be open to the match and asked for $100,000. Here’s what the 2-time WWE Hall Of Famer said:
“It’s funny you brought that up because there’s a promoter in Israel that wants me to wrestle your buddy, Sammy Guevara, in Israel. I said, ‘$100,000 and two first class tickets and I’m there. 50% and 50 % after I beat Sammy (laughs).’”
It looks like Ric is serious about doing this match, as he tweeted the following:
“Like I Said… I’m Going To Die, And It’s Either Going To Be Next To My Hot Wife Or In The Ring Next To @sammyguevara. Preparing For One Or The Other! WOOOOO!”

Flair recently claimed that he’s in better shape right now than he was 20 years ago:
“I’m in better shape now than I was when Sting and I wrestled the last match on Nitro. WWE won’t let me do anything, even though I’m released. I understand, they have so much liability and I told them I would sign anything, but nobody wants me to die on their watch. I’d rather die in the ring.”
