Talk Is Jericho: Scott Norton – From North Korea To The NWO

Scott Norton is a highly decorated arm-wrestling champion, former IWGP champion, and the only wrestler to be a member of the NWO in both Japan and the States. He was also part of the crew (including Ric Flair, Antonio Inoki, and Eric Bischoff) that traveled to North Korea in 1995 to wrestle in the “Collision in Korea” PPV, a joint production of New Japan and WCW. Scott shares his personal stories from North Korea, from traveling with Muhammad Ali to being taken and questioned by the North Korean Military to the frightening display of missiles and arms at Pyongyang’s May Day Stadium during the two-day event. In addition, he explains how the whole thing came together in the first place, why he agreed to go, and what he remembers about the various PPV match-ups.
