Goldust on WrestleMania 12’s Hollywood Backlot Brawl
During an Inside The Ropes Live event, Goldust was asked about one of his most famous WWE matches, the Hollywood Backlot Brawl with “Rowdy” Roddy Piper. Of course, that wasn’t always the match. Before Scott Hall left for WCW, the match was to be a “Miami Street Fight via Satelite”. He left two weeks before, so plans had to change.
Vince walks up to me and he says “Hey, I need you on a plane with me, Bruce Prichard and Roddy Piper tomorrow. This is when Vince would still fly commercial, so way back like 90 years ago or something like that.
After eating at a fancy LA restaurant, Goldust and Piper drove to the Universal Studios backlot to begin filming. “On the way there, I was looking around for things I could use in the fight. This is a one take shoot, we couldn’t do it over again.”
The full clip includes Goldust asking Vince about bleeding during the fight and talking about suffering a concussion while filming.
Natalya on Hart Foundation in the Hall of Fame
While talking with Muscle & Fitness, Natalya expanded on what it means to see her father Jim Neidhart inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame as a member of the Hart Foundation.
It’s just such a great feeling that all these people are going to share in my dad’s memory. And when you look at the reach of the WWE Network … over 180 countries and 20,000 people live are going to get to watch what my dad achieved, and they’re gonna understand what he meant to me.
Topics also include Natalya competing at WrestleMania for the Women’s Tag Team Championships and her picking Bret vs. Owen at WrestleMania X as her favorite WrestleMania.
