Eric Bischoff Talks About His Plans If Vince McMahon Had Agreed To Fight Him In WCW

Eric Bischoff recently spoke Nick Hausman of WrestleZone Radio and talked about what his fight plan would have been if Vince McMahon had accepted his offer for a fight in WCW.

Here’s what he had to say:

I didn’t have a fight plan. I wasn’t working out anticipating it. I almost hate to get in to this conversation but it is what it is. This was twenty years ago when I was 40. While I certainly wasn’t in the best of shape and I couldn’t have stepped in to an MMA ring I was still in decent shape. I could still kick. My hands were still pretty good. My left hand in particular. To this day I’ve got a very good left hand. My approach probably would have been, and I did think about it a little, that Vince is not a trained fighter. He’s a big, strong, powerful, aggressive guy that I would have bet anything would have probably just come straight at me ala Mike Tyson. Wanting to get his hands on me so that his weight and strength would have been to his advantage. I would have done everything I could to avoid that. Especially when I was 40 and much faster. I spent as much time on my feet between wrestling and kickboxing. I was used to moving around the ring and being able to control the ring and the distance between me and my opponent pretty well and effectively. I don’t think Vince would have had that skill set. I would have relied heavily on my hands and my ability to move and stay away from Vince until I could have landed the shot of shots that I felt I needed to. My kicking skills had deteriorated. I was still able to do a lot of strong kicks to the mid section. I wouldn’t have been able to use the kind kicking techniques that I used when I was much younger. I wouldn’t have attempted it. I would have tried to survive.

Chris Jericho Says Kofi Kingston Challenged Vince McMahon To A Fight

Source: EWrestlingNews

As you no doubt know from the number of interviews he’s been doing lately, Chris Jericho’s latest book Best In The World (At What I Have No Idea) was released last week. Jericho of course relates several WWE stories in the book and one of them involves Kofi Kingston actually challenging Vince McMahon to a fight.

According to the book, during a plane trip McMahon told Kofi in a snide manner, “Maybe one day you’ll get over.” Kingston was visibly disturbed by the jab and as Jericho and Kingston left the plane, Jericho told the other man that he had to go back and challenge Vince to a fight. Kingston thought it was a rib but Jericho was being completely serious, being aware of McMahon’s personality.

Kingston took the advice and got back on the plane, asking Vince if he had a problem with him. The two went back and forth and then McMahon went in for a double leg takedown. Vince and Kofi wrestled around for a while, until Vince finally got up and laughed about the situation, appreciating that Kofi stood up for himself.

Jericho adds in the book that McMahon has been known to throw out amateur wrestling moves against the likes of Kurt Angle and thus he knew that Vince would respect Kofi for doing it.

Rapper Punches Heckler In the Face at Tonight’s RAW

TMZ posted the following in regards to the rapper “Wale” punching a heckler at tonight’s RAW event in the face:

Rap star Wale PUNCHED A GUY IN THE FACE at a WWE event Monday night — and judging by the way security rushed in to break it up, it appeared to be 100% REAL.

It all went down at “Raw” in Washington D.C. — TMZ spoke with eyewitness Jawn Murray from AlwaysAlist.com who says Wale was sitting right behind the announcers enjoying the show … when some fan seated nearby began taunting the rapper.

Murray says Wale eventually got up out of his seat and “the next thing I know Wale is putting the smackdown on dude. Punched him dead in his face. It was a full fight.”

Security rushed over and broke up the fight — and took everyone involved into a hallway. Moments later, Wale returned to his seat and began snacking on popcorn like nothing happened.

We’re told the other guy is also back in his seat.
