Back in WCW, Jim Duggan turned on America and joined Team Canada, which was led by Lance Storm at the time. Duggan revealed that the reason why that took place was because management was trying to force him to quit the company and walk away from a huge guaranteed contract. He hated the idea, but he went full steam ahead to show the front office that he was staying.

During a recent interview, Ric Flair defended him a bit by stating that the company was already heading south by the time Russo took over as the lead writer. Flair also noted that there were many other reasons why the company died.

Earlier this month, John Cena mentioned the Funkasaurus gimmick during an episode of Monday Night Raw. Brodus Clay was told of that, and he fired back a bit. He stated that the only difference between Cena and PN News is that Cena was given a push. In case you aren't aware, News was a lower card performer in WCW that had a white rapper gimmick during the early 1990s.

For the longest time now, the internet wrestling community have blamed Eric Bischoff and Vince Russo for the awkward and short lived heel turn that Goldberg did in WCW back in 2000. The former world heavyweight champion has now explained that the reason behind that was because he asked to do a face turn again. The motive behind that was because he came backstage and saw a young Make-A-Wish girl crying at his on screen antics.

A rather interesting situation is developing through social media. Goldberg called out Frank Shamrock and challenged him to a fight. The former WCW star has been doing extensive MMA training for quite some time now, and it is being said that he will eventually get in the ring, even though he is now 48 years old. The belief is that he called out Shamrock because he was promoting the GLORY 21 kickboxing event that took place on Friday.

One of the more interesting revelations that was made during the podcast interview that Kurt Angle did with Ric Flair was the fact the latter was the one that convinced the former to avoid signing a contract with WCW. Flair had several issues with the front office, so he advised Angle to sign with WWE instead. He even stated that he handed him the phone number to Vince McMahon, so that he can initiate the negotiations personally.

Since the company now has him under contract, the smart move would be to utilize Sting as much as possible to get a return on the investment that WWE spent on him. That is a big reason why a DVD is being discussed at the moment. The WCW legend is expected to be heavily involved with the project, and he is reportedly interested in having a lot of say in how it is presented. Management already has a good amount of footage since they own the library.
