Bam Bam Bigelow Vs. Goldberg [February 21st, 1999]
After losing the WCW World Heavyweight Championship, Goldberg was still a sought-after superstar as many wrestlers would make a name for themselves by trying to topple the powerhouse. Where many would try to make a name for themselves, Bam Bam Bigelow was already established as one of the best big-man wrestlers in the game. So, when he arrived at WCW, attacking Chavo Guerrero Jr. and Scott Putski and demanding to see Goldberg, fans were well-aware of who they were seeing.
Due to this, a hell of a monstrous feud was born between Bigelow and Goldberg, which led to some of the best matches of Goldbeg’s career. Smart booking from WCW for sure, especially with the two first facing off and 20+ men trying to separate the two from brawling. Talk about hype! [x] The photo above is from Superbrawl IX, where Goldberg would go on to defeat Bigelow, but not before suffering a swandive headbutt from “The Beast From The East”!
NXT signee arrested over domestic dispute [October 19th, 2016]
In April of 2016, Terrance Jean-Jacques was signed to the WWE. Jean-Jacques has an impressive background in amateur wrestling, but he may be released if news that has surfaced is revealed to be true.
Terrance Jean-Jacques is facing a number of charges spurring from an incident earlier this week, including assault and battery, kidnapping, witness intimidation, destruction of property, and threatening to commit a crime. Allegedly, during a dispute with his pregnant girlfriend Jillian, she’d asked him to leave their apartment in the middle of the night which set Jean-Jacques off. According to Jillian’s statement, he’d gotten physical by twisting her arm, knocking her to the ground, and sitting on her legs. This made her fear for her life, so she phoned police who took Terrance into custody. A judge denied a request to release him int othe care of his parents, and was ordered to be held without bail until a hearing.
Jean-Jacques has been suspended indefinitely by the WWE, as the company has a zero-tolerance rule against domestic violence. Terrance is 24 years old.
The Fabulous Kangaroos are a team whose lineage dates back to 1957, when Australian wrestler Al Costello mentioned to fellow wrestler Joe Blanchard about trying to make an “Ultra Austrlian” tag team. Blanchard, who was good friends with Roy Heffernan, introduced Costello and the duo became known as The Fabulous Kangaroos. These two were a team from 1957 until 1965, but other incarnations included Costello teaming with Ray St. Clair, Don Kent, Bruno Bekkar, and Johnny Heffernan. In 1992, Al Costello became a manager and introduced a new force in Motor City Wrestling known as “The New Fabulous Kangaroos”: Denny Kass and Micky Doyle. By the fall of 1993, Doyle had been replaced by a young future WWF Hardcore Champion, Al Snow.
