"Little in front of the issue and not be chasing it. Because we all knew who was going to be the biggest, the biggest name was China. Right. I was going to be distraught, didn't know how bad. But it was pretty damn bad. And so, and I think our conduct and our mood, attitude, kind of eliminated. Quickly, eliminated her from consideration for another contract. Her instability are seemingly instability just was too big a risk to chance. So give me a heads up. And you know, if you guys like hunter, a lot of those flight center, I still walk on her. Right. But, you know, and I'm on Stephanie. She was a small kid. So I didn't have any issues with it. I've always said, you know, the rest had been a change immensely. It has changed immensely in a variety of ways over the years. And one of those, one of those ways is when we started hiring non moolah looking females. Sent me someplace one time to go find some athletic tens, so that any easy. Athletic tens that don't want to get bruised. I don't mind to get sore and hurting. Don't grow on trees. So yeah, it was just, he prepared me for he didn't want me to get blindsided. Because I had no idea what their personal relationship was. I didn't ask. Do you feel like I was doing my business? It's a dirt sheet material. And I wasn't willing to travel that trail. Well, let's give a little dirt sheet material going here. Meltzer would say, and what turned out to be one of the strangest stories of contract negotiations in recent times, tenacious Z, AKA Zach gowen. Verbally agreed to a three year contract with WWE on February 14th, purportedly for $52,000 per year as a downside guarantee. Gallon had been offered a 26 to 8 contract by TNA at $500 per shot on February 12th, bob bob Ryder, but he hadn't signed it when he left the arena that night, likely because he had gotten word that day of WWE's interest and of course there's a pretty famous story that once upon a time, Johnny ace hired the wrong one legged wrestler. Well, that gives you a confidence in your staff for the future ahead of honcho of the town relations department. He hired the wrong guy, God, who would have known. He would have thought, Connie. That there were two one legged wrestlers. Right. Think of her work. Right. I didn't. But I'd heard Zach. Right. And what a nice kid he was. Goddamn boy, he could take an ass weapon like no other. But yeah, Laura and I signed the wrong guy. We had to pivot on that one. That was embarrassing. Yes, it was. Zach Galway had a pretty notable career. It may have been brief, but I'm glad he's in a great place. I think he's got a couple of youngsters. He recently brought to a WWE show and they got to see how the sausage was made behind the scenes and I'm sure it was a great family day. Any fun memories of a very young Zach gowen bright eyed bushy tail wouldn't do anything. Just it was loving the 11 life and the opportunity to be on WWF television. For overachieving amputee, it was an amazing story while it lasted.

And meltzer would say there's no heat. Cain ran confronts the undertaker then choke slams rock for the hugh therefore eliminating the undertaker undertaker hits or hefner for making the call and then they brought into the crowd a lot of protection for. Take your here trying to do what they can. But we're really transitioning towards a change for the undertaker. When you when do you. I remember the whole ministry of darkness version of the undertaker being pitched or presented it. It was something just to believe that. That was actually takers idea to to want to come a little bit more demonic in more evil Looking at the character we had taken care of that character for so many years that it was an opportunity to to go on the dark side if you will and and try to take it to the next level in in be different presentation of the undertaker. Well how's this for different presentation undertaker and pallbearer kidnap stone cold and they embalm him in the run-up to their buried alive match. You shooting this is this. Is this year shoes that no. I didn't a infamous clip. Now where. Bill moody aka pallbearers. Just screwing around at. So as austin is laying on the slab and they're pretending like they're about to involve him as let's start here or whatever goes to pull down austin's trucks and austin goes from playing like he's knocked out too wide awake doing great stuff. You got to have a little livni little hough from time to time so i just need to hear. What does it sound like when when you guys in a booking meeting of sitting around. What if we in bombed him would you do. I mean him pallbearer and a dead man. You got him bomb people. Could you do it without the union. Being involved i don't know about the embalmer's union but you didn't notice pallbearers. Involved there was paul bearer. That's more bear comma. Paul than it is paul pallbearer. We should mention before we get too deep in this ministry of the darkness if we yeah sure bit as you and whatnot austin hogan goldberg and undertaker all on the covers of tv guide to wcw guys to wf top guys and makes a lotta sense austin hogan goldberg wasn't an obvious choice from wbf side. We want the other one to be taker. Was anyone else even considered. I'm sure there were you know. Probably rock consider. They're probably a lot of people consider. This was when you look at being on the newsstand. Stamler guys who would you want. Pick you'd wanna pick who's going to really grab their i and take her with somebody the just slap help me understand. You know the man behind the character mark. Calloway we always get the vibe as fans that man. He's just too cool for school. Never to how never too low just always sort of cool hand luke about everything. This view doesn't accomplishment as he excited to be on the cover. Tv guy does he think that's cool. Does he pick one up or is he like Don't be a mart birth. Who gives a shit. Sure he definitely was was extremely excited about. That's a big deal for those. Don't allow tv. God was every single checkout counter at every single grocery store convenience store pharmacy you name it area everywhere was teaming up so to be on the cover of tv guide. You were saying by gazillions of people every day. Well from there take your start speaking in tongues as part of his do that. That pissed me off. You can speak in tongues. I couldn't speak in tongues given a shot right now. Global not spacey's macron ship to pay said I'm not sure if that was nic level cough singing or if it was pat patterson having a conversation but together it kinda worked. Well yeah as speaking tom's So from here the focus goes back to kane where bear and take your can committed to a mental hospital with straightjacket and everything boy were knee deep in the story And now it's time for one of the more controversial moments that you're gonna yell and fuss and cuss about as we discuss it. But if the infamous angle where the undertaker put stone cold steve austin on the cross symbol and raises it to make him look like he's crucified. Like jesus nobody wanted to live. Like jesus david nowhere. Will you stop Serious business we've talked about this before. I know you're gonna just keep saying. It's a symbol. It's a symbol. It's a symbol but clearly we're looking for some symbolism and i get it. I'm not upset about it. I wasn't offended. I wanna know what you think. Take thought of the creative to do this. I don't i don't really remember frankly Obviously we did it and it was. It was controversial. But i don't remember any pushback really whether it was pushed back online famously bob ryder from one wrestling dot com which was probably the premier wrestling website back. Then couple hundred people were up in arms. He called it raw is porn. I'm sure you at least heard that the sexual nature of the products with the sockets in in the scantily clad women. But now i think it's the religious overtone here that maybe made a few people say fuck man. Is there no line. did you think when you first saw it. You know before doors are open and you know what the creative is and you see in real life. Do you does any part of you. I'm not asking where you fended. I know the answer. There does any part of you. Think man we piss people off kind of the wrong way with this. Maybe we shouldn't do that. Does that even cross your mind You know. I think people ask that question. I didn't necessarily ask that question. I think the way you view depends on how you be the product. If you view the product is entertainment than a senator tamen and you take you take it as entertainment and don't take it too seriously. So those that had their beliefs had their beliefs. I don't share those.
