Perhaps Vince will claim he's Jason's half-brother.

He also had a cup of coffee in TNA doing the bi gimmick, where he had a hot chick and dude both serving as his valet. I can’t remember if it was WWE or TNA, but he lost one of his jobs when he was caught on the road traveling with a teenage boy. I really would love to know how he and JBL got along behind the scenes. The Bashams were in that group too, The Cabinet, one of the least memorable in WWE history.

I'm under the impression that JBL and Orlando Jordan got along fine. I remember a photo circa 2005 or so of the Bradshaw's clique out drinking turning up online and Jordan was right there with other people you'd expect like Ron Simmons and Bob Holly. JBL has always seemed like a conservative on matters of the economy and foreign policy, but socially liberal. Jordan is known as bisexual but can't be the only non straight person JBL regularly interacted with in his WWE and non WWE wrestling days. His main concerns seem to be that guys paid dues, were tough, and followed the unwritten code of the professional wrestling backstage area. People's individual failures to adhere to those standards led to the bullying that has rightfully earned JBL a lot of scorn although I'd bet he considered it part of making guys pay their dues or pay for various infractions and if people got in line and/or stood up to him, he'd have gladly backed down.

Regarding the Cabinet, they ran into Evolution for a backstage segment at the 2005 Royal Rumble. Hunter, Flair, Orton, and Batista totally made JBL, Orlando, and the Bashams come off looking like minor leaguers. In less than a year Smackdown had gone from being on par with Raw to a total B show, something this meeting summed up when you compared the two heel factions.

Jimmy Garvin and Steve Regsk as a short lived tag team in the NWA in the summer of 86.


Butch Reed in the AWA as Garvin’s bodyguard in 1985.

Yes, on loan from the WWF.  Sadly, they did nothing to promote him and he meant nothing in Texas, so that went over like a fart in church.

Totally remember Garvin and Regal in the AWA, but in the NWA I only saw Steve Regal once on the Superstation and he didn't wrestle in a team.  It was the only time I remember seeing him.  So if they did reunite, it was REALLY short lived because I don't think Regal was there very long.

tamalie wrote: Along these lines, WCW had a pilot taping on January 27, 1999 in Waco, TX for Festival de Lucha. It was meant to be an lucha libre WCW show. It had WCW's luchadors (Konnan, Rey, Juvi, Psychosis, La Parka, Silver King, the Villanos, and so on), some luchadors up from Mexico that weren't in WCW (Salsero, Piloto Suicida, Felino, etc.), some WCW guys who could fit in with the lucha libre style and/or who had previously worked in Mexico (Chris Jericho, Lenny Lane, Disco Inferno, Norman Smiley, Blitzkrieg, Johnny Swinger), and some indies (Fidel/David Sierra, Ricky Santana, etc.). The show only drew about 2,500 in an arena that held 10,000. The proposed series never got made and the pilot was never shown as far as I can recall although the WWE must have the tape and might put it out there someday on the network.
There is a match from this taping on WWE Network in the Hidden Gems section. It pits Konnan, Rey Mysterio Jr., Silver King, and Hector Garza against Chris Jericho, Lenny Lane, Norman Smiley, and Johnny Swinger with Fit Finlay seconding the latter team. It's not long and isn't that good. The rudos seemed mostly intent on cheap heat while the tecnicos didn't unleash the highflying moves as much as they could or should have.
 
The production values are fairly typical of a WCW broadcast for the era with Festival de Lucha branding on the mat and so on at the expense of WCW markings. There is also an entry set that has a Mexican theme. There are no announcers calling the match. That would have been added in post production that never occurred after it was decided that the project would not go forward.
 
Between seat kills for the entry set, not using the full arena by moving seats to one end rather than at what would be midcourt for basketball, and putting fans opposite the hard camera, the crowd looks good on TV and I'd venture is closer to 4,000 than the announced 2,500.

Kurt Angle talking to Justin Credible:

"Justin Credible. Just...incredible. Hey, your name sounds like Just Incredible!"

And to the Undertaker:

"Mr Undertaker, if that's your real name..."

There was this one thing that happened many years back. I know it, but I can't remember it.

The original Rock was Don Muraco. They were calling him The Rock when he came in for the second time against Backlund.
