GREAT TEAMS WHO SHOULD HAVE BEEN WORLD TAG CHAMPIONS, WWE VIDEO LIBRARIES, DATING EVIL PRESLEY AND MORE

By Mike Johnson on 2020-07-17 10:00:00

I was reading The Fabulous Moolah's book and she claimed that she dated Elvis Presley. However, in Penny Banner's book, she said it was her and not Moolah. So what's the truth and why would someone lie?

It was Penny Banner who went out with Elvis a few times. Moolah may have met him, but they never dated. As far as why wrestlers lie? They are storytellers who live in a world where oftentimes, they never have to mature as people and they make their livelyhood pulling the wool over people's eyes - it's a natural extension of that.

Whatever happened to the Olympic Auditorium in Los Angeles?

The property was sold to a Korean religious organization that now uses it as a church. It was still standing last time I was in LA.

Any update on ROH's investigation?

No.  We are told it is ongoing.    I expect that anything that comes of it would have to be corporately approved before it's announced anyway, which will delay the process.

With EVOLVE, it made me wonder what other libraries are out there that WWE could still buy?

There are remnants of the Memphis library bouncing around that are said to be owned by various people and I am sure there are masters somewhere from different groups, although no huge collections. They have tried in the past to acquire the World of Sport series from the UK.   One would think there is Continental and Portland out there somewhere as well.

You always talk about the best wrestler who never won the World title, so who are your three tag teams that should have but never did?

I'd go with The Fantastics, The Young Stallions, The Islanders and if I expand my parameters to an independent tag team that should have gotten to the national level during their time, The Backseat Boyz, Trent Acid and Johnny Kashmere.
