Former WCW Star Johnny Swinger Talks About Infamous Goldberg/Hogan Nitro Match

In a recent interview with The Two Man Power Trip of Wrestling, former WCW star Johnny Swinger chatted about his uncle, former wrestler Tony Parisi and the idea to change his ring name to Johnny Parisi (spoiler alert: it was Vince McMahon's idea).

And he also talked about being at, and wrestling on, the infamous Bill Goldberg vs. Hulk Hogan Monday Nitro at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, Georgia:

"I still live in Atlanta so every time I go downtown all I say is; WOW, I can’t believe that I wrestled there in front of all those people and I use that story a lot of times to defend Goldberg. I was there that night and I made sure I went out into the crowd during that match and when he beat Hogan I never heard the roar of a crowd like that in my life. The guy was unbelievably over and just to stand there and be apart of the company at that point and be in the middle of that was really awesome. Nothing has ever really come close to that even with the other companies, I don’t know what happened after I left but up until late 99 it was pretty hot."
