11/14/1999 #TheBigShow (replacing an injured #SteveAustin) defeated #HunterHearstHelmsley & #TheRock at #SurvivorSeries from the #JoeLouisArena in #WWE#WWEoit, Michigan. The first time I won the WWE Championship was out of nowhere. I was basically thrown in a match. Stone Cold was originally supposed to be in it. Now, I'm in this match. You can't put into words...carving your name in history as the WWE Champion and what it means to you to even if once you step on that plateau and you're sitting on that throne and you're the champion, it's what you strive for. It's what you hope and pray for in the back of your mind, but there's no guarantees you're ever going to get it. When you're a part of the workforce, when you're a part of the train, the engine driving WWE and then to be in the conductor's seat. You're running the train. That amount of pressure, responsible, and elation, I can't compare to anything. - @WWETheBigShow A Giant's World documentary _____________________________________________ Fun fact: He won the WWF & WCW Championships for the first time in the same venue! #WWE #WWEUniverse #WWENetwork #WWEHistory #WorldWrestlingEntertainment #WWF #WorldWrestlingFederation #AttitudeEra #ClassicWrestling #BigShow #StoneCold #StoneColdSteveAustin #TripleH #HHH #WWEChampion #WWETitle #WWELegend #WWELegends #ProfessionalWrestling #ProWrestling #ProWrestler #Wrestling #SportsEntertainment

11/14/2015 Remembering #NickBockwinkel. Everyone remembers Nick as a wonderful heel, but he also was a terrific wrestler. Verne Gagne and Wally Karbo recruited Nick to the Twin Cities and the AWA. He had his first match here in December 1970. Verne was into his 40s by then and was looking for the right person to pass the title. Nick was everything that Verne wanted: first, a wrestler, and second, a character who could sell tickets. Nick and Ray Stevens were a tag team and they brought in Heenan as a manager in 1974. Neither of them really needed help in interviews, but they recognized that Bobby "The Brain" made them even more despicable to the fans. He had a famous match that year with Curt Hennig, who was 25 years younger than him. It reached the one-hour time limit and it was declared a draw. Nick was in his 50s, but he and Curt put on a wrestling clinic that night. Of all the guys we've lost, this one hit me in the gut. Nick was such a good guy; he cared about people. - George Schire, Star Tribune interview November 15, 2015 ___________________________________________________ I got to talk to him here and there over the years at the wrestling conventions in Las Vegas and he would take his time to tell me stories like I was an old friend of his. He truly was in a league of his own and a kind soul. More fans need to watch his interviews and matches to see his greatness as the greatest AWA Champion there ever was. #RIPNick #AWA #WWE #WWEUniverse #WWEHistory #WWENetwork #WorldWrestlingEntertainment #WWFOldschool #ClassicWrestling #WCW #WorldChampionshipWrestling #Wor#WorldHeavyweightChampion #WorldHeavyweightChampion #WorldHeavyweightTitle #WWELegend #WWELegends #WWEMinneapolis #RAW #WWERAW #MondayNightRAW #Smackdown #WWESmackdown #SmackdownLive #SDLive #ProfessionalWrestling #ProWrestling #Wrestling #ThisIsWrestling #SportsEntertainment @thebigguyryback22
