Huh, I always thought it started on DVDVR (the "Wrestling Sleaze" thread was where I first heard it). And you'd think Vince would do something, you know, LEGALLY if it were true...but this is the head of the same company that originated the "wrestling court" concept and all and who believes that the on-screen product can be used for dishing out justice.


Wrestling court is hardly a WWE concept. Many professional locker rooms have unofficial kangaroo courts.


Aha. Thanks for calling me on that one.

Regarding Sting, WWE indicated interest in bringing him on board at one point, but Sting wanted to work a lighter schedule than what most WWE wrestlers work. But if Sting ever did decide to go to WWE, Vince would take him without hesitation because he would believe he could make money off Sting. As far as the planned DVD that got scrapped, that probably has to do with what WWE may believe are legal issues since Sting is currently under contract to TNA. And Savage asking for a lot of money... I've heard those reports, but Hulk Hogan asks for a ton of money all the time and Vince brings him in, so I doubt money is the reason Vince wants nothing to do with Savage.

OK, so over at SK's blog, someone reasons that it was the fallout over Vince losing a lawsuit over who owned the rights to the "Macho Man" character. Anyway, can we just all be happy that SOMETHING is coming out at last, and that the SNME disc was a step in the right direction too? Like I said, I hate dwelling on politics.

Jerry Lawler's official history of Savage's departure is that one night at Raw they couldn't find him anywhere, and as they were scrambling around looking for him, they turned on the TV and saw him...on NITRO. And that's the story of how the King became a WWE announcer!


Could that have been Lex Luger instead?

Anyway, I'm not sure this is going to be a 3-disc set. Originally, it was scheduled to be a 3-disc set to be released in November. But that was cancelled. Now there will be this DVD to be released on June 9. But I'm not sure it will be a 3-disc set and like some people have mentioned already, it will apparently not have a documentary part. Does anyone know if it has been confirmed whether or not this release will be a 3-disc set?


KOCH (WWE's official DVD distributor in Canada) has it listed as a 3-disc set:

Or that it wasn't Nitro but WCW Saturday Night?

----------

I bet they'll have at least one match vs Flair from WCW, I'm guessing either the lumberjack match on the beach or the title win in Vegas.

oh yeah

Talk about a mixed bag. There are some matches which are pretty neat to have (Savage vs. Michaels, Savage/Bret vs. Flair/Michaels, Savage/Hogan from 1985) and some which were obvious picks, but I don't get some of the ones that were included. Savage/Yoko makes no sense to include. It wasn't even Savage's final WWF match. I could do without ever seeing the Savage/Hogan match from The Main Event, ditto for that tag match at Bash at the Beach.

It was his final shot at the WWF title. For a TV match, it was pushed pretty heavily at the time.

Agreed pretty much. They will show the Bash tag match, though, since it's Savage's last WCW title win.

VERY much agreed on Savage-Yoko. Savage's last match with the company would've been better.

I was thinking the same thing about Savage-Bruno. Don't know why that's there. A full recap of the throat injury angle would've been better.

I'm guessing they're putting that Savage-Hogan Main Event match on there, because they love celebrity involvement! (Although calling Buster Douglas a "celebrity" these days feels like it's stretching it.)

Last night on WO Radio, Meltzer said that he now believes that the Stephanie rumor is true because at this point it's the only story that makes sense and everybody in the company believes it. He also said to "talk to Oliver, because Oliver knows...See, now I got Oliver in trouble!" which I presume is a reference to Oliver Copp, who does MMA stuff for the WO/F4W site and used to be best known as the creator of TNM. Maybe it happened in Germany?

I still don't think it's true. When would Stephanie have even interacted with any of the wrestlers in 1994, and why especially would she have been on an overseas trip? I'm inclined to think there is no explanation, and it's just Vince being weird. And Vince didn't exactly ostracize HHH when he and Stephanie started dating behind his back. I would still be interested in someone who can confirm what the WON said about Savage's WWF departure at the time.

Er Bix, why would a teenage Stephanie be in Germany at the same time as Randy Savage?

Me too, but I never thought that Vince knew at the time if it was true.

It's not that ridiculous to think that she may have gone on a European tour as a vacation of sorts. And yes, Savage was on the last German tour before he left.

Or I'm just reading too much into the mention of Oliver Copp "knowing the story." Has Oliver said anything on the F4W boards about it since last night?

Oliver hasn't said anything on the board, and I can't find any evidence of him saying anything about it before.
