Buff Bagwell Says He Gave Away $120K To Join WWE In 2001, Shoots Down Rumors He’s Joining TNA

Buff Bagwell appeared on 4th & Pain where he cleared up rumors that Eric Bischoff spoke with him about returning to TNA Wrestling. The multi-time WCW Tag Team Champion says the conversation never took place, but he did speak with Sting about returning to the promotion.

Bagwell also weighs in on whether TNA’s decision to take Impact on the road will help grow the brand or prove to be the undoing of the company.

Most sensationally, Bagwell also reveals he essentially forfeited a $120,000 payday to join WWE immediately after Vince McMahon purchased World Championship Wrestling.

Bagwell also talks in depth about the seizure and car accident that nearly took his life.

      I can see it. Buff was pretty popular back in the day. Too bad WWE didn’t work out for him.

        Oh, I understood that. He took a huge gamble, and I agree it’s too bad WWE didn’t pick him up.

    I remember watching WCW promos from back in the day and all Buff would say was “I’m Buff and I’m The Stuff” literally ten to twenty times! lol smh

    Buff the Stuff and BPP were cool when they were together, almost DX-ish, they had some great skits and complimented each other well.

    • Bubba

      Too right! They were one of my favorite teams back then.

  • moody1

    Bagwell’s ego kept him from being a success in WWE. He’s a jerk. Ask anyone in the know.
