angeldelayette Posted May 13, 2018 Share Posted May 13, 2018 News And Notes -Ted Turner Promotions, also known as World Championship Wrestling, is under new management as of January 1, 1991. Former Executive Vice President, Jim Herd, has been reassigned to another division within Turner Enterprises. Rumor has it that this change is because of the debacle that was the Black Scorpion storyline. We have heard that it wasn't until the last minute that Ric Flair stepped in to be the man under the mask at Starrcade 1990. -With Jim Herd out as Executive Vice President, this also means that Ole Anderson has been removed from the head booker position, giving two separate openings in the company. -After extensive interviews, we have learned that the man who replaced Jim Herd is named Eric Bischoff. If you're asking yourself just who this is, you would not be alone. Last seen in wrestling, Bischoff was a host and on-air interviewer for the American Wrestling Association. It is said that he will be bringing more of a business aspect to the company. -One of the first decisions that he has made is that every single episode of World Championship Wrestling will now be aired live on Saturday nights. This is an aspect of professional wrestling that has never been tried before and would surely give Eric Bischoff a long-lasting legacy if he can pull this off. He has told major publications that anything can happen on an episode of World Championship Wrestling. -On the creative side of things, Eric Bischoff has decided to have a committee to help him make decisions. That committee will consist of Dusty Rhodes, Kevin Sullivan, Ric Flair and Sting. -Eric Bischoff's next decision was to release Al Green and Grizzly Smith. He said that the company wishes them the best in their future endeavors. -We have heard that the company will not be leaving the NWA as of right now. That is contrary to the popular belief that the company has outgrown the NWA. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
