Since every wrestling fan on the planet is curious about CM Punk leaving WWE, TNA has decided to take advantage of the situation by posting several of his matches for free on their YouTube account this week. Punk worked for the company during their early years.
When Barbarian and Warlord left the NWA while in the midst of a high profile feud against the Road Warriors, a lot of people were puzzled. It was later discovered that the Powers of Pain had backstage heat with the company because they did not want to work a series of scaffold matches.
In 1986, the Warlord started working out at a new gym when he was approached by the owner, better known to wrestling fans as Road Warrior Animal, about a possible career change. Animal sent him to Dusty Rhodes, and a contract with the NWA shortly followed.
