Masters Dresses As Warrior, WWE May Lose Tax Break, Steph’s University Speech

Chris Masters Wrestles Match In Warrior Gimmick

Former WWE star Chris Masters honored the Ultimate Warrior by doing a whole match in the Warrior gimmick on Friday. He was working the Preston City Wrestling event in England.

WWE May Lose North Carolina Tax Break

WWE could potentially lose a tax break in North Carolina that’s applied to TV and film productions. The Charlotte Observer notes:

When World Wrestling Entertainment staged matches in cities across North Carolina in 2010 and 2011, millions across the country watched on TV as the high-flying, muscle-bound stars body-slammed each other.

Taxpayers in North Carolina played a part, too. They subsidized the broadcasts with $570,000 in tax credits, based on more than $2.3 million in in-state spending, from a program that rewards television and movie projects filmed in the state.

Lawmakers will be debating the program by the end of 2014.

    Chris Masters publicly ridiculed Warrior in 2008. Why honour someone that you dislike? Was there ever peace between them? I never read about it.

      Warrior buried a lot of hatches near the end of his life, which may have earned a lot of respect from Masters.

        It is possible, but his issues never really seemed to be that. Apparently, Warrior did not treat him – and some other workers – with the respect that they think that they deserved when they wrestled on the same card for one night only.

        I was not there, so I cannot tell you much.

        What I know, though, is that there are always at least two sides to every story like that, and Warrior is not here to tell us anything.

        It was a nice gesture, but after seeing Chris perform “as the Ultimate Warrior,” if I may say it like that, it really showed me just how big Jim Hellwig/Warrior really was – even at his smallest after he stopped taking steroids.

        Characters like The Ultimate Warrior are one in a billion, just like Macho Man.
