In the AdFreeShows.com edition of “83 Weeks,” Eric Bischoff and Conrad Thompson discussed the WCW pay-per-view of World War III 1996.
This show featured The Giant (Big Show) winning a 60-player 3-ring battle royale, Sister Sherri against Colonel Robert Parker, Chris Jericho against Nick Patrick and much more. Bischoff also shared a few stories and he spoke about some of the TBEN from that era.
Eric Bischoff shared some memories of the Hennig family when asked about Curt Hennig: “I liked Curt. Curt was one of my peers. Curt went to high school with my wife. I fought Curt’s younger brother when I fought in Minnesota. Curt’s brother’s name was Randy. I was a high school student. I think I weighed 154 pounds. We were fighting Robbinsdale. I found out that I was fighting Randy Hennig. Unlike Larry or Curt, Randy had a longer, more slender build. I wrestle this guy and I was not a very good wrestler. I was average but still went to college. Randy was very good. I’m in the third period of the game, Randy is on my back. He has a number four around my waist. He squeezes my guts. I’m in the center of the mat and gauze while he crushes my ribs. I look up and there’s Larry “The Ax” Hennig and he’s on the first bench in the stands. He leans in and just stares a hole through me as his child squeezes my guts. I have become very familiar with Curt in the AWA.
Eric Bischoff spoke about the actual fight between Kevin Nash and Scott Hall with the Nasty Boys: “Here’s what happens when you mix volatile personalities, massive egos, pride, with copious amounts of alcohol and drugs. You get that kind of crap. That’s all I can say. Everyone was guilty. Anyone who says he’s not is lying to himself. The Nasty Boys, more Knobbs than Sags because I have never seen Sags participate too much. But the fact that Brian Knobbs is alive to this day is an incredible feat in human physiology or the fact that there really is a God. I do not know. It’s amazing to me that he’s still alive considering what he’s been through. And Kevin and Scott, I love them both. I’m closer to Kevin than Scott because I see Kevin more and talk to him more, but that’s what it is and it was what it was. It was a lot of extracurricular activities that made a bad situation worse.
