    Thanks for sharing these stories. Especially the Severn and Road Warriors story.

    Severn was a legit fighter, he would have caused a lot of trouble going for a real fight.

    Chris Jericho details the Mickey Roarke match that never was...at Wrestlemania 25.




    - Jericho brings up that Mickey Roarke had called him out during a RAW. Someone told Chris about it and he quickly watched it and later learned from Vince what the plans was. Mickey Roarke was gonna wrestle him at Wrestlemania 25. The match was gonna be a special attraction match basically. But Chris thought with Mickey coming off The Wrestler and he had some training , more work with him could make it really good.


    - But then as Roarke seemed ready to move ahead with it , his manager and people warned Roarke that as he was up for an Oscar the academy may not be happy. Seeing him working in WWE at a show and hold it against him. So Roarke pulled out which irked Jericho. But Vince is always thinking of a plan.


    - So Vince devised an idea where , ala the Wrestler we take legends holding on too long. So he told Chris that he had Roddy Piper , Greg "The Hammer" Valentine and Jimmy Snuka would be facing him. Chris told Vince given the age of the guys and how Roddy really couldn't move much due to his hip and the other 2 really being older the match would stink. Vince admitted it would but the match would be an attraction match.


    - Jericho however pitched ideas to Vince like , hey lets remove Valentine since he's the smallest of the names and put Jerry Lawler in it. In Vince's mind however he wanted guys who worked Wrestlemania 1 and were WWE Hall of Famers. So Jericho being smart saw Ricky Steamboat and pitched him. Steamboat was receptive to the idea but a question on if he owned his name came up. Steamboat did and it saved the match. Also the spots with Steamboat was so well received he ended up wrestling 5-6 more times.


    - Post match they did include Flair and Roarke in a spot.

    So in a wild comical deal Jake Roberts (The Snake) ; detailed issues he had. Cornette's cohost read what Jake said in a rant about Bret Hart and Shawn Michaels.


    - Roberts told that both Shawn Michaels and Bret Hart were the worst WWF Champions of all time. That both men weren't believable as champion and business sucked for both. Also the two men were busy fighting about getting Sunny's P--- as shown. Plus Jake claims that no way was both believable as champion next to Andre the Giant.


    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VuhldETa1gs


    - Cornette is stunned at hearing all this and does laugh over the fighting over Sunny's p--- line. But as Cornette claims both men were very good wrestlers. That he'd be lying if he didn't say Shawn didn't have talent and he could work really great in ring. Both had decent size too as well as Shawn was billed at being 215-220 at one point in his career.

    - Jim brings up how Roberts is by passing a lot of people calling them the worst champions. Hell as Cornette brings up Kevin Nash should make the list since that run cost the company tons of money. Then there was years later they even made Miz a World Champion. How could he be serious and say this.

    - Jim also reveals that Jake Roberts was on the WWF Booking committee when he returned for like 4 months. That Jake really did it for the extra money and would pitch some out there things but never took notes and really pushed at it. Also he didn't ever speak up when Shawn was champion because Vince likely wouldn't have listened to him either if he did have a gripe with it.


    - Also as Jim jokes at the end Bret and Shawn was fighting about everything including that about Sunny. But he doesn't agree with this.

    On his podcast last year Jim Ross and Conrad Thompson discussed a story of 1990 WCW where Lex Luger declined getting the WCW World title in Feb. as Sting was out.


    - Conrad reads that Luger was asked if he would become WCW World Champion and beat Flair in Feb. 1990. But Lex turned it down then because he felt he wasn't ready yet. Jim Ross backs it up that Luger did turn down winning the belt and that was a key reason. He felt he wasn't there yet to be World Champion. Also it could have been smart business by Lex because the only real main event heel the company had was Flair. So he would be the best money feud awhile then they didn't have anyone else ready.


    - Jim Ross puts over that this was a smart move by Lex . Plus the fact the company had Sting months away from returning to be champion. That Flair was gonna put over Sting and he would have done it for Lex at a better time n place.


    - Ross brings up how weird this era is because they had guys like Steve Williams , Scott Steiner , Rick Steiner etc. But they didn't do a good job building main event depth then. That no one in the company thought of it and this happens.

    Kevin Steen (Owens) a few years ago in his shoot discussed a comical situation where he was in CZW.


    - As Steen starts off he was working in CZW and was the CZW Iron Man Champion at the time. Steen had wanted to work a Tournament of Death Match against John Zandig as his friends loved Zandig with what he did in ring. Steen told them he'd do barbed wire , chairs etc against Zandig because he so wanted this match. But CZW came back and told him that the only way he could face Zandig was in a 3 way tag team match in a cage with 9 men.


    - Steen had kept that date open for the show as well before learning what CZW wanted. Around this time he learned PWG was looking at friends of his and he too wanted to work some shows for Dragon Gate so he sent them a tape of himself. They lined him up for October and November. Well he was gonna do a month in Europe in September so he informed Zandig at the show that August of what he planned ahead and he would gladly drop the title to him or anyone in that cage since he didn't think they'd want him to keep the title til December when he could return to CZW.


    - Zandig wasn't happy and goes FINE ...and tells Steen that Generico will be the champion then. Steen is like...he's on my team. Generico is smoking (which as Steen claims is rare) and he goes , no ...no I don't want that belt. Since he too was leaving after this for something else. Well Zandig's son is wrestling later on the card and Zandig starts discussing his match with DJ Hyde. So as Generico is sitting smoking and to f-ck with Zandig comically he goes , 'Where does this happen in our match tonight ?" Which Zandig is like F--K THE MATCH ! And yells that its his son's match later.


    - Genericho is like Yeeeah f-ck this match ! So it gets more comical as Zandig reveals his son will get hurt in his match and he's gonna go to hospital with him. So Steen is like , oh yeah so your gonna come back for the big save right at the end ? Nope... f-ck this match as Zandig tells him and he plans to be gone. In his place is Eddie Kingston. Anyhow Steen is like , he's in Blackout who were facing in the cage on the other team !

    Zandig goes , no tonight we will run an angle where he gets kicked outta the group earlier then comes out as the 3rd member of this group. Steen realizes that Zandig has never said who will pin him for the belt .


    - So Steen brings up he really liked LuFisto as he saw her away from them backstage. He knows she really liked what he did and he doesn't want to take away from the moment of her winning this. Because he felt she really was becoming a star in CZW so why not. He looks at Zandig and proposes that LuFisto somehow he gets in the match and pins him for the Iron Man Championship. A woman beating a man for that title. He wanted to see how insane Zandig was as a booker to propose it.

    "I f-cking love it !" - Zandig as Steen is even stunned. So Steen tells her she's gonna be Iron Man Champion tonight.


    - The Match itself was pure chaos as expected. At one point Steen claims everyone else was going at it working as he decided to comically walk around for a couple minutes drinking water at ringside. Til Kingston saw him finally and they went at it. Lufisto got him alone in middle of the ring and won the belt.
