May 27, 1996 is a day that will live in wrestling infamy. It’s the day Scott Hall, known by fans at the time as Razor Ramon, showed up on WCW Nitro. It was significant because Hall had been with WWF for four years and showing up on the competition’s program and declaring war with them made it look like WWF had sent him.
We’d later learn this was the seed planting fo the nWo and one of the greatest angles in the history of wrestling. My co-host Chad Smart and I dissect the period leading up to Hall’s jump and do some ‘what if’ scenarios along the way.

Independent wrestling is important in establishing the foundation for main stream companies like WWE, TNA and even Ring of Honor. Men and women toil for years on the indy scene before getting their big break. Some don’t even make it beyond the armories or high school gyms.
I recently spoke with Dalton Diamond, who has been wrestling for several years now. We talk about his training and how he got into the business. Diamond is preparing for a big tag team match on July 2 with his partner Cash Bordin. The two face off against Bull Bronson and Mad Man Pondo at the Stride Pro Wrestling “Brawl at the Mall” in Marion, Illinois.
It’s a big weekend for pro wrestling in southern Illinois. On July 1, Jeff Jarrett’s Global Force Wrestling comes to Rent One Park, home of the Southern Illinois Miners. Kevin Nash, Swoggle and Nick Aldis are among the guests scheduled that night.

Since its creation in 1993 (with Andre the Giant being the first inductee), the WWE Hall of Fame has honored the careers of more than 100 men and women involved in the wrestling business. Kevin and Chad have been to eight of the ceremonies. In this episode they discuss the Class of 2015 and look at past inductees and share thoughts of how they’d change the Hall of Fame.
