- As noted here, Thursday marked the 20th anniversary of Hulk Hogan's infamous heel turn at WCW's Bash at the Beach. Eric Bischoff was instrumental in convincing Hogan to go through with the turn, one that saw him align with Kevin Nash and Scott Hall at the end of their match against Sting, Lex Luger and the Macho Man. Incidentally, Bischoff has been the subject of speculation as of late due to WWE's upcoming brand split and the need for two separate COO's (formerly known as General Managers). Bischoff, of course, was a former RAW GM, holding the position for three years from 2002-05.
Focus on something else. Not going to happen. https://t.co/ntzXKCG4zf— Eric Bischoff (@EBischoff) July 8, 2016
- Braun Strowman apparently had enough of the hate he was receiving from internet trolls "fat-shaming" him. The Black Sheep of the Wyatt Family took to his personal Instagram account (separate from the one he uses to post strictly WWE-related images) to show off his current physique, as you can see in the picture below. Strowman called out the "internet nerds" using the hashtags #ImSoFat, #HatersGonnaHate and #GetOnMyLevel among others
