1/18/1971 #IvanKoloff defeated #BrunoSammartino to win the #WWWF Championship from #MadisonSquareGarden in #WWENewYork , New York. Back then it was the WWWF title. 1971. Bruno Sammartino: he wasn’t only my hero and my first match, he was a legend in the sense that he was so well like by the people. For a seven and a half year period, he was champion before I won the title from him. It was definitely a gift to my career. - Ivan Koloff 2000 Shoot Interview Fun facts: This was the end of the longest WWE title reign (7 and a half years!!!) and The Garden went quiet just like when The Undertaker's Wrestlemania Streak ended! This was Ivan Koloff's favorite match. That's Captain Lou Albano next to him, who was his manager. They had to take this photo with The Title backstage to avoid a riot. Bruno thought he had gone deaf due to the silence in The World's Most Famous Arena on that historic night. __________________________________________ If I could go back in time for any WWF event to experience besides WrestleMania III, it would be this one. #WWE #WWEUniverse #WWEHistory #WWENetwork #WorldWrestlingEntertainment #WWF #WorldWrestlingFederation #ClassicWrestling #MSG #TheGarden #RussianBear #RAW #WWERAW #MondayNightRAW #Smackdown #WWESmackdown #SmackdownLive #WWEChampionship #WWEChampion #WWETitle #WWELegend #ProfessionalWrestling #ProWrestling #Wrestling #SportsEntertainment
1/18/1993 #CurtHennig defeated #RicFlair in a Loser Leaves #WWF match on #RAW from the #ManhattanCenter in #WWENewYork , New York. When he and I were together — ask Vince McMahon — we had a lot of fun. We had a great time. We traveled around the world together. When I was working with Curt, we had such a great time that it wasn’t work. - Ric Flair WWE.com interview February 12, 2003 #WWE #WWEUniverse #WWEHistory #WWENetwork #WorldWrestlingEntertainment #WorldWrestlingFederation #WWFOldSchool #ClassicWrestling #WWERAW #MondayNightRAW #MrPerfect #MisterPerfect #Exodus #AbsolutelyPerfect #NatureBoy #Naitch #DoItWithFlair #Alsosprachzarathustra #DiamondsAreForever #WWELegends #ProfessionalWrestling #ProWrestling #Wrestling #SportsEntertainment
1/17/1987 #LexLuger (in his #NWA debut) defeated George South by submission on #WorldChampionshipWrestling from the WTBS Studios in #WWEAtlanta , Georgia. I was playing around, never thinking that I would be asked what my name was. I was pretty sure I would be assigned a name. Just in case whilst I was training I looked up a last name Luger because in the mid eighties in the States, Magnum P.I. was the number one television show so I thought if Tom select could be Magnum, I would be Luger, which is a German automatic revolver and I had German dissent. I thought of Lex because I grew up a huge action hero and Superman fan and to this day I’m a fan of Superman and I took the name from his nemesis Lex Luthor. Right before my debut on television they didn’t have a name for me and I threw Lex Luger out there. They shrugged their shoulders and said it sounded good enough and it ended up sticking for the next 15 years. - Lex Luger Cult Of Whatever.com interview November 4, 2013 #NationalWrestlingAlliance #NWAHistory #WWE #WWEUniverse #WWEHistory #WWENetwork #WorldWrestlingEntertainment #WWF #WorldWrestlingFederation #ClassicWrestling #TotalPackage #Narcissist #AllAmerican #TortureRack #RAW #WWERAW #MondayNightRAW #Smackdown #WWESmackdown #SmackdownLive #SDLive #WWELegend #ProfessionalWrestling #ProWrestling #Wrestling #SportsEntertainment

1/17/1992 #JacquesRougeau defeated #BretHart to win the #IntercontinentalChampionship at a #houseshow from the Civic Center in #WWESpringfield , Massachusetts. I’ll never forget winning the Intercontinental Title against Bret Hart and losing it to Rowdy Roddy Piper. I had three different dolls made and sold in Toys R Us’s around the world as The Mountie and when I give conferences in schools now against intimidation. The first thing I do is because they don’t know me because they are too young and they have only heard of me, but I do so many personal appearances and am on TV that when I come in and start talking to kids and I take my belt out and my dolls out, they start to say, “Hey, this guy was important”. All of that was done because of the Mountie character. - Jacques Rougeau The Two Man Power Trip interview December 22, 2015 #WWE #WWEUniverse #WWEHistory #WWENetwork #WorldWrestlingEntertainment #WWF #WorldWrestlingFederation #WWFOldschool #ClassicWrestling #TheMountie #IntercontinentalChampion #IntercontinentalTitle #ICTitle #RAW #WWERAW #MondayNightRAW #Smackdown #WWESmackdown #SmackdownLive #SDLive #WWELegend #ProfessionalWrestling #ProWrestling #Wrestling #SportsEntertainment
1/17/2010 #AJStyles defeated #KurtAngle to retain the #TNAChampionship at #Genesis from the #ImpactZone in #WWEOrlando , Florida. I wrestled AJ in TNA and I can tell you that he is every bit as good as Shawn Michaels. The thing with AJ Styles, and I want everybody to realize this: You don't have to do anything with him. He does all the work so it's an easy match for you. He flies around the ring. He does all the bumping. AJ is a special individual where you can go in that ring and literally just stand in the middle and he does everything for you. I have never had a match with anybody that's been so easy and every time I worked with him, it was a five star match. So AJ's that kind of talent. He only comes around once in a lifetime. - Kurt Angle Making Their Way To The Ring with @liliangarcia interview January 16, 2017 #TNA #TNAHistory #ImpactWrestling #WrestlingMatters #TotalNonstopAction #WWE #WWEUniverse #WWEHistory #WWENetwork #WorldWrestlingEntertainment #TeamAngle #YourOlympicHero #ItsTrue #ThePhenomenalOne #PhenomenalOne #IAmPhenomenal #GetReadyToFly #TheyDontWantNone #P1 #RunThePlace #WorldHeavyweightChampionship #WorldHeavyweightChampion #WorldHeavyweightTitle #ProfessionalWrestling
1/17/2017 Remembering #JimFagan . He played football for West Virginia University then spent his career doing voiceover work for the NFL, the NBA, the Olympics, NBC Sports, the Mountaineer Sports Network and hundreds of commercials. He was also the narrator of the WWF from 1995 to 1999. You best know him for his legendary line: For over 50 years, the revolutionary force in sports entertainment. #WWE #WWEUniverse #WWEHistory #WWENetwork #WorldWrestlingEntertainment #WWF #WorldWrestlingFederation #WWFOldSchool #WWEOldschool #ClassicWrestling #WWFAttitude #AttitudeEra #MondayNightWars #RIPJim #RAW #WWERAW #MondayNightRAW #Smackdown #WWESmackdown #SmackdownLive #SDLive #Narrator #WWELegend #WWELegends #ProfessionalWrestling #ProWrestling #Wrestling #SportsEntertainment
#Repost @thegeniuscast --- We have just put finishing touches on our last episode of The Genius Cast. We’re going to do something different and very special to end our show’s run. As you know, each week our shows ran to about an hour to an hour and a half but we didn’t want end things by doing the usual. If we’re going to take a bow here, we’re going to do so with a bang by putting out two versions of this episode that you all will never forget! Now we mention two versions. Version one (1 hour, 10 minutes long) will drop as normal on your favorite podcast app on Monday, January 21st. On this version of our finale, we go into full detail on why we’re calling it a day, JP plays a song he wrote entitled “Hope For Tomorrow”, Lanny shares one last song and poem, and we give tribute to Roddy Piper with guest Pete Rosen. As many of you know, Lanny was the final ever guest on Roddy’s podcast “Piper’s Pit” and we thought it would only be fitting to have Roddy be the focus of Lanny Poffo’s final ever show.

1/16/2000 In his final #WCW match, #ChrisBenoit defeated #SidVicious by submission to win the #WorldHeavyweightTitle at #SouledOut from the Firstar Center in #WWECincinnati , Ohio. I won the match. It felt good in terms of an accomplishment, but it was like a stale accomplishment. It was very tarnished because I knew that there was a lot of political motivation and a lot of reasons behind giving me behind that opportunity." - Chris Benoit, Hard Knocks documentary ______________________________________________________ Basically, Benoit quit in protest along with Eddie Guerrero, Dean Malenko, and Perry Saturn because they didn't trust Kevin Sullivan, who had replaced Vince Russo as the head booker. Fact: It was originally going to be Bill Goldberg Vs. Bret Hart in a rematch from Starrcade, but Goldberg sliced his arm open breaking a limo window in a segment gone wrong and Hart suffered a career ending concussion. #WorldChampionshipWrestling #WCWHistory #ClassicWrestling #WWE #WWEUniverse #WWEHistory #WWENetwork #WorldWrestlingEntertainment #ClassicWrestling #RabidWolverine #Crippler #TheCrippler #ProveMeWrong #CripplerCrossface #ToothlessAggression #NoobSaibot #WorldHeavyweightChampionship #WorldHeavyweightChampion #BigGoldBelt #WWELegend #Tapout #ProfessionalWrestling #ProWrestling #Wrestling #SportsEntertainment
1/16/2006 #Edge defeated #RicFlair in a #TablesLaddersChairs Match to retain the #WWEChampionship on #RAW from the RBC Center in #WWERaleigh , North Carolina. The big test, though, was with Ric Flair. It wasn’t just a ladder match, but a TLC match, and then we’re talking tables, then we’re talking chairs. We’re also talking about Ric Flair, who has never been in a ladder match or a TLC match. Part of the reason it was such a huge challenge was part of the reason I wanted to do it. As much as I say I don’t want any part of these matches, I really don’t because of my body’s sake, but then my mind and my competitiveness takes over and I want to show that I can do a TLC match with anybody. And to Ric’s credit, he got in there and he completely backed up his claims to being one of the best ever, if not the best ever. He got that glimmer in his eye and he was able to hang with me. I’m not trying to sound cocky, but if you can hang with me in a TLC match, then you’re doing something good. - Edge IGN.com interview March 3, 2006 Fun fact: Charlotte Flair was watching this from the front row. #WWE #WWEUniverse #WWEHistory #WWENetwork #WorldWrestlingEntertainment #WWERAW #MondayNightRAW #TLC #RatedRSuperstar #UltimateOpportunist #5SecondPose #NeverGonnaStop #NatureBoy #Naitch #DiamondsAreForever #DoItWithFlair #Alsosprachzarathustra #ChampionVsChampion #WWEChampion #WWETitle #ProfessionalWrestling #ProWrestling #Wrestling #SportsEntertainment
1/16/2014 #EthanCarterIII defeated #Sting at #Genesis from the #VanBraunCenter in #WWEHuntsville , Alabama. Your childhood growing up in the early 90’s and you don’t know what your watching, but it’s wrestling and you don’t understand it, but you’re attracted to that guy. You see him and then you grow up and next thing you know you’re standing in the ring next to him. It was pretty cool. What I appreciated most working with him is I guess the creative aspect and the speaking part of it because I had a lot of fun. First off being in the ring with him and it was the first time he came out to confront me in the ring, I felt a difference in what it’s like to be quote, “over” because there was just a different buzz and atmosphere.” - #EC3 This is Awesome Wrestling Show interview February 20, 2015 #TNA #ImpactWrestling #TNAHistory #WrestlingMatters #TotalNonstopAction #WWE #WWEUniverse #WWEHistory #WWENetwork #WorldWrestlingEntertainment #Stinger #TheManCalledSting #TheIcon #CrowSting #ThisIsSting #ItsShowtime #TroubleTroubleTrouble #WWESuperstars #WWELegend #ProfessionalWrestling #ProWrestling #ProWrestler #Wrestling #SportsEntertainment

Roddy Piper was a young babyface who was turned into one of the greatest villains of all time at the Olympic. His feud with Chavo Guerrero and the Guerrero family reenergized the Olympic in the late 1970s as Piper antagonized the Mexican American crowd and packed the old joint. #18thandgrand #prowrestling #roddypiper #rowdyroddypiper #rowdyrondarousey #wwe #wwehistory #olympicauditoriumproject #olympicauditorium #losangeles #dtla #documentary @chavoguerrerojr #thisplacematters #1970s #lahistory @roddys_rowdies @classicwrestling
Before this storyline started, I was doing a movie! I did this independent movie in Texas where I played a younger version with my hair and then I played an older version of me that got sick and everything else, so that’s why I ended up shaving it for the movie. And then, I get called in to do this thing, and I thought, ‘do you know what? Hunter has got his head bald. I’m just going to go ahead and leave it that way.’ And It was thinning up there anyway, man, and so it was better to just chop it all off.” Michaels added, “and now, it has gotten to where my wife likes it and [Edge and Christian] know the short stuff is much easier to manage. - #ShawnMichaels , Podcast Of Awesomeness November 15, 2018 #90FeetFromHome #EricRoberts #DeanCain #WWE #WWEUniverse #WWEHistory #WWENetwork #WorldWrestlingEntertainment #HBK #HeartbreakKid #Showstopper #Headliner #TheMainEvent #SweetChinMusic #TheClique #RAW #WWERAW #MondayNightRAW #Smackdown #WWESmackdown #SmackdownLive #SDLive #WWELegend #WWELegends #ProfessionalWrestling #ProWrestling #ProWrestler #Wrestling #SportsEntertainment

“While writing The Legends of Wrestling, Keith Elliot Greenberg got to know Freddie Blassie quite well and mentioned in his appearance on The Genius Cast that Blassie really opened up to him. Blassie, well-known for exaggerating a story or two, stated that when he was wrestling Rikidozan in Japan, one hundred Japanese wrestling fans dropped dead of heart attacks because the matches were so gory. Blassie also told Greenberg that women used to come up to him on the street and just gawk at him because he was God’s gift to women!” . . . 🔗 Read this story in full on ProWrestlingStories.com by clicking the link in our bio (@prowrestlingstories )!

1/14/2014 Remembering #MaeYoung . When you've got an 80-year-old woman like Mae Young, who you're supposed to put through a table, at first you go, 'What?'" But when she comes up to you and slaps you in the face and tells you, "Don't be a wuss with me; throw me through; I want to go through" What are you going to do? By far, that was the toughest person, pound for pound, we've ever been in the ring with. - @testifydvon Dudley, Unscripted book #WWE #WWEUniverse #WWEHistory #WWENetwork #WorldWrestlingEntertainment #NWA #NationalWrestlingAlliance #WWF #WorldWrestlingFederation #ClassicWrestling #RAW #WWERAW #MondayNightRAW #Smackdown #WWESmackdown #SmackdownLive #SDLive #WomensWrestling #WomenOfWrestling #WomensDivision #Herstory #WWELegend #WWELegends #WWEHallOfFame #ProfessionalWrestling #ProWrestling #Wrestling #SportsEntertainment #DVonDudley
