Some sad news to report. Nick Bockwinkel has passed away. The former world heavyweight champion died at the age of 80. Not a lot of details have been released in regards to his death. Bockwinkel is vastly underrated. At one point in time, he was to the AWA what Ric Flair was to the NWA and Hulk Hogan was to WWE. Additional details on his death should be available later in the week.

Earlier in the week, Scott Steiner challenged Hulk Hogan to show up at Legends of Wrestling and try to body slam him, a feat that he was willing to pay $1 million. Well, to avoid being caught up in any legal issues, the promoter of the event has released a public statement. In it, he states that his company has nothing to do with the challenge or the video. He said that was something Steiner did on his own. He reiterated that Hogan is not a part of the show.
