Transcript Of Chyna Comments On Her TNA Debut, Eric Bischoff's Comments, Her New Porn Film And More On Wrestling News Live 6/17/11

Former WWE Intercontinental & Womens champion "The Ninth wonder of the World" and Vivid Video Vixen Joanie "Chyna" Laurer was a guest on Wrestling News Live’s Fall Out show (found at http://wrestlingnewslive.tk/) and below are some of the highlights:



Why She Choose to work with Vivid Video:


Vivid is hot you know,I didn’t know anything about porn but even then I would see the calendars in the book stores and they had the billboards and the girls were plastered all over the place over Sun Set billard in front of the clubs and they (the females on the billboards) looked gorgeous


How well she has been treated since joining Vivid Video:


Beyond my expectations, I am totally psyched and I’ll tell you why; I haven’t felt like this since I was on top of my wrestling days right before my departure as I had just done my book and I did playboy and it was a total high of my life, I loved every day, and I woke up every to do all that (it) was tremendous. I kinda have the carpet pulled out from underneath me and Its’s been a long while and the problem died and I guessed I might as well be as real as I can get and I’ve gone through a lot of obstetrical and when this came up, I’d won my name back in 2007 after fighting for it for seven years and I hadn’t do anything super big with it since I got my name back you know? I had been doing little movies here and there and a copy of reality shows but this, when this opportunity came up, I was like “Yeah”, I didn’t have to think twice about it. I was insecure for about two minutes and then I thought “ Why on earth would you not do this?”. Everything I have done in my career, I have jumped in with both feet and I’ve taken chances and risks and something things have worked out, something thing’s haven’t but I have never been afraid of judgement.



How her TNA debut came about:



It was a surprise to me as it was to you(the internet fans) because basically I got a call from Vince Russo out of the blue and I was expecting it to be an Australian beer company and then it was Vince Russo and kinda basically overnight I was on an aeroplane….. So I get this call from Vince Russo and I clearly wasn’t expecting that you know because basically since the time I left from WWE, I never physically spoke to anybody expect from legally… so when this phone call came I was like, “Woah” but things have been going really well for me over the past year and the last couple of years I have really moved on and I’m really healthy physically and I get this call and I was really happy to hear from Vince (Russo) and he said he was thinking about me and the angle(Jeff Jarrett vs Kurt Angle) and would I be interested and I said “well of course” and I think he was shocked because we were friends and I really enjoyed working with him in WWF and he was like “I didn’t know how you were going to respond/react” and I was like “Its not the people within the business I’ve had problems with, we all know the problems and the reasons why” and I was happy to hear from someone and wondered why it took so long for someone to call me. When I went there, I was really psyched to see everybody and I don’t think anybody expected me to go and be that willing to jump back in so it was kinda a quick process for everybody.



Chyna’s thoughts on her one appearance stay in TNA:



I really didn’t know what was going to happen, I basically went to go to talk to them and I didn’t expect to be on TV that night but you know, the Pay Per View was right around the corner so I know that was the angle they wanted to do so I really don’t know what was going on behind the scenes. I knew Vince Russo and Bruce Prichard were really in my corner like wanting to make things happen so I don’t know, maybe it never surfaced as I never heard back after that but I consider it open basically.



Chyna’s thoughts on Eric Bischoff’s recent “Deer in the headlight” comments

My friend keeps me in hopline so I’ve sort being listening to what people have been saying and when I saw his(Eric’s) comments I didn’t know how to react to it because I never expected it because it was so out of left field as I had just gone to TNA, things went great and as far as I’m concerned I’ve never had beef with Eric, I’ve never even worked with him, he was very nice to me when I was there and I don’t have a problem with anybody and it was great so I just don’t know where it came from, it was strange. Maybe I looked like a deer in the headlights because I didn’t have the right lashes on? Or something, I don’t know.



Chyna on keeping the porn film a secret:



I didn’t hear from anyone before anybody knew about the movie because I had been keeping it a secret since I did the movie last November and that’s one of the reasons I looked so well and why I feel so well and its not my obligation to go around telling people everything I’m doing and its not a secret either so after the fact I haven’t talked to anybody in a while, its almost like he came up with a reason because of the movie, who knows?



Chyna on her “TNA missing the boat” with her comment:



I didn’t mean it in a negative way, I think they are missing the boat because I think we can have a lot of fun and I could do a lot of stuff and it didn’t make sense to me to go do one thing then kinda have it lingering out there….. I mean when I did playboy, it was like the biggest issue ever because your combining the two so you have wrestling, boobs beer and popcorn *laughs*.

Chyan’s thoughts on working the late Eddie Guerrero



Yeah it was really fun, I love the soap opera aspect so for me it was the first time we got to do vignettes and the chemistry was there and it was funny and he really taught me a lot in the ring because when we worked together is was magic. I remember Eddie taught me how to press (slam) people and the first time I pressed him, I got him up and I was trying so hard and he jumped so hard as we were practicing in the middle of the ring and I actually threw him out of the ring and he landed on the floor!. He was awesome



Chyna on WWE’s Hall Of Fame



Well you know what? As far as relationships goes, I’m way over that you know, it was a typical break up in the sense of losing someone you love and the deceit and cheating yes but that happens to all of us. What was the real heart breaker for me was that I really knew in my heart it would blow over in a year or two or when we were able to pass the relationship stage that everybody goes through in a break up but because of the way business was done, I didn’t know that it would be a decade later and nobody has spoken to me I mean come on, I’m over the relationship part, it was just bad business on their part if you ask me.



Chyna’s future in the porn industry



I’m hoping that’s coming my way, there is definitely talk of more and you know, I just think in a short amount of time you see how your working together and I would love to do more work with Vivid, they have treated me exceptionally, its quite glamorous I have to say, it really has been, it felt great and they treated me beyond fair and I need that, I’m on board for sure so you know, we will keep you posted, I don’t know what’s gonna happen but its looking good.



Chyna on if she would return to WWE or TNA if they offered her a contract



Absolutely; Based upon the deal. I’ve come real far at this point in my life and I know what I want and I know what I deserve so you know, if everything was good for this point if my life, yeah of course….. I think I’m pretty reasonable; I have done a lot of things throughout my career and worked hard for my name and know my work ethic so you know I don’t know, like loreal, I guess I’m worth it but you know, you never know what’s gonna happen tomorrow.

DVD Review: The Very Best of WCW Monday Nitro (Part 3)

NOTICE: These review went exceptionally long, I decided to post this in parts with each part focusing on a particular disc. The first two parts will be posted along with this one.


Disc 3


WCW World Heavyweight Championship Match
Kevin Nash vs. Hollywood Hulk Hogan
January 4, 1999

The Fingerpoke of Doom. Where to begin when it comes to this particular moment? Some say that this was what cause Nitro to start losing the ratings war and in association, WCW’s demise. Can’t say that it was the direct cause but it was one of the main reasons.

Somewhat relation to this moment, on the same night, WCW tried to take a jab against WWE by revealing that Mick Foley was going to win the WWE championship. The result was the complete opposite as many viewers switched over to watch RAW.


Goldberg Spears The Hitman
March 29, 1999

Bret Hart’s career in WCW could be said to be less than favorable that many wanted. Still there were some shinning moments and this was one of them. Hart hope that this would start up a feud with Goldberg and it did hope promise, it wasn’t until near the end of the year for it actually to happen.


WCW World Heavyweight Championship Match
Sting vs. Diamond Dallas Page
April 26, 1999

Terrific match that perhaps has been forgotten over time. Without a shadow of a doubt I say that this was perhaps in the top five of matches in this set. Went for perhaps over twenty minutes and never felt bored during that time. Was even said by DDP that this was one of his best matches and has been getting praise for what was done.


Eddie Guerrero vs. Juventud Guerrera
June 21, 1999

Glad that another Eddie match was included. It was his first match after the audio accident he had at the start of the year and looked like he hardly lost a step. Nice match between two cruiserweights.


Hulk Hogan & Goldberg & Sting vs. Kevin Nash & Sid Vicious & Rick Steiner
August 9, 1999

Hogan’s return to the red and yellow. The crowd popped for it and for everything that he did during the match and with everything that was being done by the faces. Decent tag match that had high moments on occasion.


Billy Kidman vs. Diamond Dallas Page
August 16, 1999

The cause for the match to happen came out of nowhere and seemed to give a reason for a match. Was okay but it didn’t seem to have a real purpose to be on this DVD set.


WCW World Heavyweight Championship Match
Bret "Hitman" Hart vs. Goldberg
December 20, 1999

Following the WCW’s attempt to do their version of the Montreal Screwjob at Starrcade, this rematch was done for the vacant world title. Didn’t compare to their previous match and was mostly done to set up for the revitalization of the NWO. Something of which that did little to not help WCW.


WCW World Heavyweight Championship Match
Kevin Nash vs. Sid Vicious
January 24, 2000

Following a match that was for the vacant world heavyweight title, we are given another one. Reason for it was that previous champion Chris Benoit had left WCW to go to WWE. Traditional big man match that the two have had in the past but was somewhat short.


The Bischoff & Russo Era Begins
April 10, 2000

As DDP mentioned prior to this segment, this was WCW, and particularly Bischoff, last ditch effort to revitalize the company. What came because of this did have some impact but soon fizzled out for a variety of reasons.


Steel Cage Match for the WCW World Heavyweight Championship Match
Jeff Jarrett vs. Diamond Dallas Page
April 24, 2000

This match was somewhat of a mixture of a cage match with a street fight that occurred to the actually contest. Basic cage match that was okay but nothing all that remarkable.


Tag Team Ladder Match
3 Count vs. Jung Dragons
July 18, 2000

A mostly forgettable ladder match that had only a few things that was interesting. Seeing Tank Abbott being paired up with 3 Count was funny but did little for the actual match. If you truly want to see a great ladder match between these two watch the one they had at the New Blood Rising pay-per-view.


WCW World Heavyweight Championship Match
Booker T. vs. Lance Storm
August 7, 2000

Took place during the time that Storm was holding three titles at once and was getting major heat with his pro Canada angle. Nice match up between the two and showed that Booker was doing a good job as being champion.


Triple Cage War Games Match for the WCW World Heavyweight Championship
September 4, 2000

The war games match was one of the things that many WCW fans think of when looking back at what they enjoyed. Sadly the last one to be done was this that felt somewhat like a clusterfuck. Everything that was going on was scattered about that made it difficult to know everything that was happening. Having it happen in the triple stack cage was a nice twist but overall it was a confusing match.


Vince McMahon Buys WCW
March 26, 2001

Shocking end to a company. I knew about the purchase early but watching Vince McMahon appear on Nitro and announce it only strike it home.


Sting vs. Ric Flair
March 26, 2001

Guess since the set had Nitro’s first ever match it feels right to have the last one. These two have had many matches against each other and are usually classics but sadly this one paled in comparison to them. Despite that, it was entertaining and worth watching. Felt fitting that after six years, the last match on Nitro is one that occurred on its first ever episode.


Final Verdict
For basically six years WCW Monday Nitro was a key factor in wrestling. Not only during its time but for what was wrestling to come. With three discs that goes practically three hours each we got tons of moments that were highlighted but there was no way that everything could be touched upon. I think that we can agree with what Page said at the end that a volume two isn’t so far off of an idea.

If you were a fan of WCW, Nitro in wrestling in general then I say get this DVD set. There might be some things that you may not prefer but the positives greatly outweigh the negatives.

DVD Review: The Very Best of WCW Monday Nitro (Part 2)

NOTICE: These review went exceptionally long, I decided to post this in parts with each part focusing on a particular disc. Parts 1 and 3 will be released along with this one.


Disc 2


Diamond Dallas Page vs. Mark Starr
January 13, 1997

Match itself was nothing more than a squash. It’s what happens afterward that matters as it lead to the face turn of DDP and the start on his road of become one of the key players in the company.


Harvey Schiller suspends Eric Bischoff
March 3, 1997

Short segment. Showed how over as a heel Bischoff was as the crowd popped huge when he got suspended.


Sting attacks the nWo
March 17, 1997

Merely a segment of the NWO attacking WCW before Sting came to the rescue. Was a way to keep Sting over without him actually wrestling.


WCW Cruiserweight Championship Match
Syxx vs. Rey Mysterio Jr.
April 21, 1997

A match up I wished WCW would’ve done more of. They worked well with one another and while the ending was another case of outside interference, it fitted for what was happening.


WCW World Heavyweight Championship Match
Hollywood Hulk Hogan vs. Lex Luger
August 4, 1997

Nice match that although a bit short. Luger was over but in retrospect, he was merely filling in until they had Sting actually wrestle and be the key player against the NWO.


nWo mocks the Four Horsemen
September 1, 1997

There are very few wrestling skits/segments that I have distain for and this would be one of them. Didn’t need to happen and apparently I’m in the majority who felt that it was uncalled for as even DDP seemed to dislike talking about it before it was shown.


Diamond Dallas Page vs. Buff Bagwell
September 29, 1997

Don’t really understand why this was included on this set. Didn’t do anything more than perhaps reestablish the issues between DDP and NWO. Felt like it was just there.


Sting Saves DDP from the nWo
October 27, 1997

Another one of Sting’s rescues but it’s what happened at the end of the segment that really stood out.


Sting vs. "Macho Man" Randy Savage
February 2, 1998

Glad to see another match added to the set. Unfortunately the match itself isn’t that great with a few exceptions.


Jericho's 1004 Holds
March 30, 1998

Nice promo to help further the Chris Jericho vs. Dean Malenko feud that was going on.


WCW World Heavyweight Championship Match
Hollywood Hulk Hogan vs. Goldberg
July 6, 1998

Big time match and the crowd was really into it. Good match for what it was but I believe that WCW dropped the ball by having it on free TV instead of having it on pay-per-view.


WCW World Tag Team Championship Match
Kevin Nash & Sting vs. Scott Hall & The Giant
July 20, 1998

Interesting tag match that had Nash and Hall on opposite sides. For two teams that essentially they mixed in nicely. The involvement of Bret Hart near the end could’ve been done without but guess they needed to do something to make sure that the NWO black & white didn’t get a clean win.


Non-Title Match
Rey Mysterio Jr. vs. Chris Jericho
August 3, 1998

Before their great series of matches in WWE, Mysterio and Jericho would have their own share of good matches in WCW. Enjoyed how the two worked each other as while they occasionally use high flying moves, they also did actual wrestling. It showed that they knew how to mix things up while working each other.


WCW Cruiserweight Championship Match
Juventud Guerrera vs. Billy Kidman
September 14, 1998

With the end to Raven’s group The Flock ended, Kidman had to show what he could do on his own. From how this match turned out it did a good job in showing that he was a player. Crowd was really into Kidman as they popped big time for him winning.


Ric Flair Returns to the Four Horsemen
September 14, 1998

This was a great moment in Nitro and WCW history. There was real life backstage issues concerning Flair and those of WCW, particularly Eric Bischoff which resulted in the Nature Boy being absent for months. Was said by Flair if he was in arm’s reach of Bischoff he might’ve wringed his neck.

Another good thing was that the WWE didn’t try to particularly omit Chris Benoit from the segment. I know what he did at the end of his life is inexcusable but there was no way that you could’ve removed him and his involvement.


WCW United States Championship Match
Bret "Hitman" Hart vs. Diamond Dallas Page
October 26, 1998

Another pair that worked well with each other but had few matches with one another. Back and forth action that didn’t feel like it was dragging at any point. Ending came out of nowhere but it wasn’t a disappointment. This was perhaps one of the better matches Bret had in his rollercoaster career in WCW.


Ric Flair vs. Eric Bischoff
December 28, 1998

Essentially a squash match but an entertaining squash match. Multiple people got involved that was a bit annoying but wasn’t too over the top. This led to the Flair controlled WCW, which is a whole other story.

DVD Review: The Very Best of WCW Monday Nitro (Part 1)

DVD Review:
The Very Best of WCW Monday Nitro (Part I)


In the history of wrestling, there are times that fans and other wrestlers will remember years after it has come and past. One such moment was the Monday Night Wars as WCW Monday Nitro ran against WWE’s mainstay show, RAW from September 4, 1995 to March 26, 2001. When Nitro debuted it set into motion in causing wrestling to step it up for what it had been in the past few years.

Glad to see that WWE decided to do a DVD released that focused on some of the most memorable moments in that show’s history. To top it off, they had one of WCW’s top stars that happened during that time in Diamond Dallas Page adding his input and thoughts about particular segments/matches and how the company was progressing during the time. Each disc focuses on two years a piece, during the show’s run.

NOTICE: These review went exceptionally long, I decided to post this in parts with each part focusing on a particular disc.


Disc 1


Flyin' Brian Pillman vs. Jushin Thunder Liger
September 4, 1995

What better way to start the set then with the first ever match on Nitro. It was also one of the last matches Pillman would have before he began his infamous “Loose Cannon” gimmick. There have been better matches between these two but it served its purpose by starting the long run of Nitro.


Hulk Hogan vs. Bi
