"That's the in wrestling fans are passionate if you if we do if we start to smell wait a minute person doesn't know what she doing there. But it's amazing that you turned around and instead of being like oh what a dick that guy in the front row was. You're like you know what. I should probably make sure that my all my t's are crossed. I is are dotted before dinner. Yes so you start you come in as an annex t. ringing out right and how long are you doing Well i think i was. So i did bring announcing for the house. Shows not the televised ones. And i was doing the backstage interviews for annexed at the time so I would say the annex t thing for about two years with some sprinkling of some smackdown or some are also whenever. I was needed but i didn't full-time go to smack. Don't think until maybe you're three or when you're doing ring announcing energy are sort of Entree into wwe. Are you like oh. I can get comfortable with this or in the very beginning. Are you going. Whoa this totally different world. I'm going to be honest. And i'm very open about this. Bring announcing something that i want to do. It's a it's a skill set. I think i did fine with it but it is a very difficult job and those who do it well. Every week are just incredible. They make it look easy but it is not an easy job coming from broadcast background I never used my voice like that. We talked like this on camera. Not like they're like all the. Yeah so it. W it's time to find my voice but also ring announcing probably is what helped me become a better host like a hosting the bump. Could you just learn how to go on the fly to interact with people Definitely has made me a lot quicker. So i'm grateful for that phase of wbz time but I'm i'm grateful that that is behind me now. I would imagine coming from the outside. You like okay. What i get all the information cards. I go to the ring. I read my cart. And they're like no. You would actually memorize memorizing weights hometowns nicknames. Even like the way. I remember Aj styles away He's announced his very like a j styles. And i remember i didn't really know that's how he wanted it done at a house show and he's so nice about it became corrected me like mainly kind of practice doing the way he wanted because all the superstars however certain things and it's up to us to obviously put out there so lots of things they memorize and get down but Yeah i don't think people think about that that the the ring announcer is part of the package that this superstar is building. It's part of the character. It's part of the way like it's got us sound the same. Because you know i mean you think about different entrances in announcements and people do associate like Salaam sort of brand entrance as their brand. And also i mean. I feel like if you really intimidated. Because i think a lot of guys if you mess something up like a hometown or wade or even a name. Because you're flustered or whatever and it's difficult though feel disrespected. that'd be like one hundred percent you know and why it's so important. When we bring in new ring announcers Only disabled before the night starts pull aside the superstars and even just show that you are interested in knowing exactly how they want things done. That goes a long way than just messing it off. Then yeah because you've got to gain the respect to these guys and gals Barron corbin was one 'cause then he's built from kansas city and i said kansas city missouri. Now that's correct. That's not how he wanted done. He was he was cool about it but he came over. The rope looked at me and goes. It's not missouri or just like. I'm so sorry. Awesome because he can yell at you but still being character begins. When did you feel like you know being in. Wwe that you're like okay. I get this. I get like you came in like a like sheep ready like you like just just like a lay on my should say right like i like you know what wrestling is. You're aware of the product. Obviously but you. I mean it's really complicated thing. It's a really complicated business. So when did you feel like okay. i get what. wwe is. And i get where i fit. It probably was. I had already been here for a couple of years before. I think i felt that way. I also when you go from brand bran and in the atmosphere is different from annex t to raw to smackdown. I had the chance to work with all of them and then kind of owners to delay the land. How things work here. So i mean honestly at the top of the. The beginning of the pandemic was oddly. How when i start feeling and getting my groove. So wow yeah not not too long ago. Wow i mean has it. Has it made a difference for like you haven't at the time. We're we're taping this. You have it hosted a pre show in arena with hands right. I mean wrestlemainia. I guess it's true value right ripe at lake like you haven't sat at the table. You know in the midst of everything with people walking up behind you and trying to get on camera and everything. It's going to be a totally new animal right. Yeah absolutely. I haven't thought about this with thanks. This i'm excited. Though when rene young used to host them after her charlie caruso it was cool to cooler. Just sit back and watch the interactions with the fans at at the table. Nothing a man..

"Do you choose me or do you choose the fiend and it was actually really nice emotion out of nikki here and then of course alexa has two. She's just like i choose him and then skips off and you see that. Look on nicky's face of fucked up. Oh no so then hurt business come out basically just lashley an mvp and they cut a little basic as promo on sammy's zane. We're going to beat them. That's it that was the there was nothing fun about it. It was just very mode. Hurt business going. Do our business does. We're all punch people. And also charlie caruso informed us next week we are getting shelton. Benjamin cedric alexander versus the new day for the tag titles. So the hurt business or really trying to get all the gold they possibly can and then titus o'neil came out and okay ads fine. I guess it was so bizarre. Because i i understand like a couple of weeks ago. Tightest wanted to join then. They denied him. They beat them down. So you want a little bit of revenge. It's just seemed like a weird time to do this. So todd is says hey how about this me and you fight with the us championship on the line. Lashley response. I have no respect for you. And this title defense will be his first and his last first time and last time titus ever fights for a championship and wwe and man. I real impressed in the big day heavy in the first half cotton. I'm not gonna lie. 'cause titus actually looked really phenomenal. He looked brutal in the beginning like he showed a lot of viciousness he showed a lot of fire and then lashley hit a sphere and then put them the hurt lock and fuck it and i'm not even lying. Titus got the ropes within five seconds titus was in the ropes and the referee said fuck. I'm not gonna call it fucking keep it on so instead of calling for the rope. Brake lights should be called instead. Tapsell match ends bobby. Lashley looks dominant going up against sami. Zane which makes me sad. Because i really wanna see sam zane win that match. So we then get a promo for mcintyre shameless. Who are my new favorite. Do of course shea. Mrs complaining about the fact that there's no organization on his team and then mcintyre vary matter-of-factly like well. Maybe you shouldn't brogue kick your partners off the ring apron. Shameless talks about the fact that he that drew is now teaming up with losers like the new day which point mcintyre does the new day..

"He's not even twenty five years old but I feel like for most a my adulthood life. I've been watching Zion just dunk on people on the Internet. He is the fee nom in the Basketball World Zion Williamson. He is everything that everybody was saying about. Lebron James Coming out of high school incoming yeah coming into the NBA. But before the social media era he is the Modern Day Lebron James So Anytime Zion in the Bron- on the same court the world's GonNa stop for a little bit now. Granted the world that we're in right now obviously has a pandemic happening where there's a state of emergency in every single place. It's not being talked about enough up talked about a lot. I'm trying to stay ignorant assaulting because I think it's a very scary Sich but Dean Koontz wrote a book in Nineteen eighty-one. That's Ray. I predicted this entire word for word but anyways so to distract us from what's really happening we watch these sports. That's what sports is by the way a distraction. That's what this show is supposed to be a mental vacation. It's not supposed to be anything. That's real deep thought. But when Zay on in the Bron- hop on court together and play against each other. I am tuning in the present greatness of basketball. The present face of basketball. The current state of basketball all runs through Lebron James. When I watched dwayne Wade documentary Was a thirty for thirty. I think on Sunday night. Maybe a Dwayne Wade out. Yeah it was on the other night and Dwayne. Wade's reaction to the decision and coming to the heat and his family's reaction was like. Hey we did it like hey okay. We're going to eat now. Like he was friends with him. Yes watching the how the other players treat Lebron respond to the Braun. Lebron basically being like the leader of the entire league. Not just of the Lakers. That is what is going to be in like ten years from now right so in. Lebron is done whenever dizzy? Seventeen years in he still Yak on folks. Last night that dunk from Charlie. Caruso through the legs Dunk Charlie Caruso that dunk on old buddy causa was Alex. Yeah Mr Caruso Charlie Caruso WWE ESPN MR Caruso la late that passer legged Lebron with the air was nasty in year seventeen. He's still going up. It is still Lebron James leak gay. I WANNA be a person that goes on. Reckon goes this is ions leak. It's going to be Zions Ligo Very Soon Zion set in the next two to three years. He's going to get it right and I think Zion's underselling himself. I think he's already starting to get it all the people that thought Zion was not going to be able to play in the NBA are already proven wrong. Mardi proven wrong twenty straight points for nine Games under the age of twenty ties Carmelo Anthony for an NBA record. Zion Williamson is becoming this player that we didn't think you'd become he's becoming this ground and pound. Underneath Guy. That's willing to go to work in the pain if he has to. He reminds me. Who's that guy from Pittsburgh? Bad knees want Blair to want a sales no no ACL. He reminds me of Dewan. Blair used to play back in the day kind of a thick body low center gravity but had a good read on where the ball's going got that he's got a step back and whenever Zeller throws it. I mean it is. Everybody stops what they're doing and cameras. Come out as if it's a super bowl kickoff so when zone in the Bron- play each other. You know that Lebron knows all these things Lebron. Here's all these things. Jay Williams told a story when Kobe Bryant passed away. He said that when he met Kobe Or a story that he remembers about. Kobe is their first time playing in La. They're playing the Lakers. And he said he wanted to get over the arena about three o'clock to do a shoot around and when he got to do his shoot around. He's a rookie. Kobe was on the other side on the other side of the court. J was doing shoot around whatever it was in. Kobe won through bike. The hardest workout. He's ever seen a human go through like he was he was doing all these things. He going like a practice all by himself. Basically while Jay Williams to stay on the other side of the court just put up like free throws this whole thing happened so j. asked after the game he said. I is that normal. Is that what you do? In Kobe's I saw you over. He said I wanNa let you know. Basically that this is how this goes like this is. This is how I saw the young guy come in in. Kobe won Ham. Lebron did that last. Oh Yeah Zion came into his house. Everybody's heard the talk about Zion being the next Lebron everybody's heard this conversation. That Zairean is potentially the pop culture. Icon THAT LEBRON IS IN ZION. Can go on to be the next. Lebron and be the face of this league relatively soon because of how nice is how how hard working is how much teammates like him and now he is in. Lebron went to work. I thought there's a chance of Brown's GonNa Score one hundred points last name he was. I liked this new Lebron by the way New Lebron is now they have so much more length than the. Pelicans might Pelicans. And they took advantage of that. But even if you go back to the Celtics game just a couple of days ago the Braun is back in people down. He's changes game a bit here in seventeen becoming much more. I don't WANNA say unpredictable. But I think he's utilizing a lot of the bigness that he has gone a lot of other people have that a lot of people have always wondered about the. Ron can take to the rack anytime he wants. Sometimes he decides to do a pull up people go after. We'll the bronze six foot eight. He wanted Iraqi wants to do. Pull up you should do that. Lebron has become one of the most well rounded players in the NBA hitting fadeaway threes whenever he wants banging into paint step backs everything like that. And that's why Lebron's abroad getting better year after year in watching Zay on kind of develop in super-confident confident NBA Guy who doesn't view. People is like idols anymore. Just views them as peers and competition like I love. I love everything that happened. Last night ultimately the Lakers get to win. Zion puts up twenty-nine Brandon Ingram only twenty. Two years old puts up thirty four. The bron- puts up forty. The Lakers get a win. Dwight Howard playing really good basketball for the Lakers. Finally Caruso good that young squad of the Pelicans I mean it was a win. Win that trade as an Ingram. Yeah from the Lakers. To the PELICANS zone found a jumper in New Orleans. They've got a young team. The Lakers are good team. And I'm very happy with the state of the NBA. Especially because I'm Zion divert. Lebron Lebron is but I think the way that Lebron played last night said more about Zion because I think he knows how goods I on is and how much he already respects. I on that he no. He knew what he had to do with his game last night. And then Zion in that. Pelicans offense where they just run and run and run and Alvin gentry. Says we can't run on some sessions. We have to run on. Every single possession is great because it spreads floor Zion so he could use his athleticism and then he is getting really good at using his leverage and putting a shoulder into someone who's taller to create space because then he has athletic billy and his second jump like when he misses a shot and he knows where it's going because obviously he knows his second jump is quicker than anyone so he could get back up. I the thing that Zaidi's is approved on. I think is a little bit of his handles so that he could get black guys easier. It doesn't need to do everything in the paint And then he did hit one. He's only hit one three since That opening night where three in a row. But it'd been that'll come the kid. He's nineteen years old is. GonNa be incredible. The Brooklyn shoot downhill either. Not Not by couldn't shoot easy rider shooter than you were. I correct just wasn't but in. Nba standards him knocking down shots. Lebron can't shoot Koby that was always becomes a call. We can do this. Kobe can do this in. Kobe was just say score. Through and through Prom Ron is a facilitator and now he's changing his offense. I mean he's just Bronze Guy and I think Zion's GonNa be right behind him. I'm excited because the act right now in the West is Memphis or New Orleans most likely in respect to jaw and that very young team. That's going to be very good in the future but I the what we saw last night is the first round matchup that everyone is dreaming about in the NBA. Lebron first round in the West. Let's go I Love Zion. Man I don't know if I should or not I didn't because I hate duke and I also hate front runners and stuff like that but there's no way you could hate on right now. I have completely flipped one. Eighty did not understand when he chose to go to duke right as a guy who was a fan zone on the Internet might go to Duke like Brett you're going to the NBA in one year. Like go to Miami or like Los Angeles or like you know do OJ Mayo. Daily can learn from coach k. Whose well that was. The thought is east. He got beat last night again by an inferior team. Well he's a real team guy. Like I think that is something that is not said enough about Zion and the Bron- like Lebron ethic was the first real big noted basketball name that was one hundred percent. Okay being a facilitator like Magic Johnson. Magic Johnson was the freak who's also facilitated not just like a a like. That is the thing that I love about Lebron. And that was the same thing that he gets bashed for like. Oh He's passing the ball too much he doesn't want the ball in his hands is like well. I think he views himself a little bit like a point guard. Magic Johnson he doc great passes good vision. Zion exact thing does the duke buys into their system. Just like I said about the Pelicans the first Games I on debuted is like. Hey gentry I thought should have still die on the. Hey you can do no wrong tonight. This team runs through. I thought Duke should have done that instead. College basketball's over different but the NBA. Future is in good hands especially with me being a die hard pellets. Eight efforts going to fly. That Burns GonNa soar right to the top of his damn thing. So sorry to interrupt. I just want to let you know that right now. You're probably thinking yourself. I'm thankful I chose listen to the show today. And if you think of that launch good until you friends and if you're thinking man why am I listening.

"If we hadn't spent several months having him beaten Hansman talent, the bludgeoned brothers were made to be a hundred times better because they got several weeks of beating enhancement talent. And I don't think that it's just monsters the benefit from that. I think we could bring out an e c three and have him fighting handsome talent. I think you could have the same match that heavy machinery head except have them go against enhancement talent. And therefore, you don't have to, you know, have one of your regular every show tag teams lose yet. You know, eventually you want them to beat a name tag team. But on TV for their first match gave him unenhanced talent match. You know, you have female hands down. And they've done it before. It's been here and there, but I do think that enhancement talent should be utilized more. I do think that there are tips to telling the stories of characters that they did back in nineteen Ninety-two that maybe WWE should think about incorporating a little bit more. But. I mean to not just sit there and go like, we're pretty it's pretty cool that we get to sit there on a Monday night and take for granted the fact that we get to watch Seth Rollins and drew McIntyre just bust their ass for us and. You know, I don't I don't think that it wastes it, you know, I'm not mad at watching them wrestle again. At some point. You know, they usually the story. It's all about the story that is told in getting us there. We can you can watch the same match multiple times as long as number one. The match is good. And number two the story that gets us to each match keeps us interested. You know, Seth Rollins and dolph Ziglar. Wrestled over and over again over the summer, but the matches were so good. And there was enough going on that I stayed interested in all of it. Whether it was on pay per view, whether it was on raw, and we also know that there is an expectation when you say that Seth rounds and drew McIntyre going to have a match on raw there's a million ways that could go when we say that match is going to happen on pay per view. There is a different expectation for the match and more often than not the match ends up being a lot different on pay per view than it was on TV. But I mean, I was shocked at how many people I felt like we're starting to make the argument that superstars in ninety two was a better TV show than raw in twenty nine thousand nine. I'm happy to continue to have that conversation though. Because it's it's interesting to me the that would be an argument to gets made. Speaking of great shows, let's talk about takeover takeover is happening Saturday night. Phoenix WWE network. I will be there alongside Pat McAfee and Charlie Caruso for the St. takeover Phoenix pre show, which I'm I the fact that I get to be even a tiny part of these annex takeover shows is one of the coolest things in the world. You know, the the takeover shows I got to sit on the panel of every next takeover pre show in two thousand eighteen and twenty eighteen was for me. As far as years, go. The best collective year of takeovers that annexed he has ever had. I mean, just amazing show after amazing show after amazing show. And I don't see any reason why that trend would not continue. So it really is amazing. To sit on that panel on one side, Pat, McAfee and Charlie Caruso. But let's talk about what this card looks like. Of course, the NFC championship match is Tomasz. Oh, ciampa versus Alastair black. This is the one we've been waiting for Alastair black was slowed down.

"All this and more at the house of hardcore at the what are the chances that end zone tries to hijack big castles match. Oh, dude. What a fucking loser. I feel like we didn't. Talk about that enough. Yeah. Maybe there's not enough that can be said, I was doesn't deserve or. Yeah. Or maybe doesn't deserve. Right. Talked about at all what more can be said. Some loser goes back to the place where he was fired from. I have not watched much of the tag league. But I do see that the grill is destiny are a couple points ahead here to go and going to put them over strong. And the new Dan's look into the future here nutrients in and odd spot, I still can't believe Rene Young's gonna be at house of hardcore. Well, you got to go talk to her those Charlie Caruso. I mean, you know, you can you can do things outside of WWF, especially if you're not a wrestler, but I just feel like she's it's too early for her to be at such a thing. It's too early to make a payday, and I say off, I guess not never I wonder if she just has a quote in the book, they're just gave her her travel info. This is good work and your work and. I wonder what they take care of like or does she book it or does she have someone else? It a lot. I'm sure they reached out to our. Well, who was this was this is Ron Feinstein's gig. Isn't it? I don't know. So so here's the thing. A lot of times how these conventions work is someone puts a convention on. But then like our video they get the people they want and they cut the deal. Right. So then rob Feinstein works, whatever deal out with whoever he's bringing edge or whatever. So then he's like with edits it's trans and room, and this much per autograph, whatever. So it's not always the convention on the whole, but within the convention someone like us buys a table. And then and then cuts the deals with the talent that you're gonna use. Now, you can also get a table by yourself. But, but I don't know that Feinstein because the person that I bought the table from was not, rob. So maybe he just is like a big and that guy wasn't use of it. But it's true bad. You didn't get to have interaction with that. That guy didn't have the question. Hard-drive Titi question. Dr you had a questionable on the news when he was walking up to Seattle. He was on the cameras on episode of like like local Philly version of to catch a predator. The king of Prussia version of the K O P. So maybe maybe maybe that's bringing Ellsworth then who knows? And we've we've watched it. And then he's done an amazing job of of just erasing that from the internet. Like, a rob Delaney level racing of any fingerprint Laney, of course, just had a bad set. But oh, yeah. No known rob Delaney was never on to catch a predator. He wasn't Jimmy Kimmel on horrible horrible. Stand up Jimmy Kimmel the worst you can possibly imagine. Like to the point where Kimmel they didn't book stand up for a while after that like maybe even into like a couple years and good luck. Trying to find a clip of that online. I'm wondering that kind of thing fascinates me. What who do you pay to to wipe something from the internet?.

I mean, she's she's kind of a mess. No. I didn't. I only grab some highlights off the internet. I was on an airplane. It was a fine. Little it was a fine little match when they finally had it at the end there. Whatever I think the greatest moment was Ron arouses prolonged. Angry face that. She did do you. Remember the end of that said where she looked off to the side. She was back stage. Oh, well, that's McMahon. Any fucking backstage has to end with five full seconds of awkward stare and also say. By I acknowledging that Rhonda Rowzee would kick my ass up and down both sides hair. Come the way that she marches down to the ring all angry. She looks like a little a little kid like she looks like an anger that will kid showing you how angry they stops down to the ring. Yeah. It's not a I don't think it's the the effect. They're going for because she is, you know, legitimately a fighter. She's a bad ass. But like the end of that segment she looks off to a right over shoulders. Can't believe what has happened that whoever she's dealing with and wasn't a bliss. She's just like angry, and but she makes such an angry face when the cameras so close to her looks ridiculous. You teach people dare would be better. What you think's could go down there and teach people about smoldering. Yes. Just depends on you know, where the camera is man blocking to then. Well, I mean, they cheat out, and that's all there's no change in that unless they completely redo the show..

"But everybody a lot of people that were complaining about raw being three hours is way too long are also acting like raw losing the overrun is this horrible thing. And I don't I don't think it is. It's just USA being like, I don't think we need the overrun anymore and WWE going. Yeah, we don't we don't do TV like that anymore. You know, I I think that it can be as unpredictable and as suspenseful and as good with or without the overrun, quite frankly, and they prove that on Monday. And the final thing that you know, I wanna talk in depth about takeover war games. Because I think that this has the potential to be better than last year for sure in terms of the war games match and the takeover show. You know, they're doing something very ballsy by removing takeover this year, all the takeovers. Had the confidence of having that ciampa Gargano storyline to fuel it where where even if, you know starting with with the January show, we realized that okay? We thought the Adam Cole Alastair black. It wasn't going to get any better than that. But that and dry Gargano match was like, okay, we're onto something new and since then since that takeover show last January it's been all about Gargano and all about ciampa will now we're heading into a takeover where for the first time since January. Gargano and chopper doing two separate things there still acknowledging their story and acknowledging their feud, but they've got to separate matches with two separate stories going on. And you don't even really know where they stand, and I think that on paper this takeover show could be just as good if not better than it's going to be on par with where we're at this year, which to me I believe after this takeover show. We'll be able to say that two thousand eighteen was the best year of annex t takeovers that we've had again, I would like to talk about it more, but I really wanna get into survivor series. And I'll be on the takeover pre show panel with Pat McAfee and Charlie Caruso on Saturday. So we'll be able to get in depth into takeover on the kickoff show panel on the WWE network and on WWE social media channels. So we'll do that there and we'll get into survivor series. We're about to get into survivor series. I promise you, I normally wouldn't interrupt the state of wrestling. But there's something that I need to tell you guys have.

I, you know, I sometimes don't eat as much as I should before the show because I don't do that. And then after the show I go and I have my lucky charms and then go about tonight, go about the evening. Sam is the greatest coast and the history of the world. Oh, come on. And when I say that, I mean, oh, come on, I I've heard nothing but horror stories about the WWE my entire life from like jaded jaded rustler's. They're like all. They'll kill you in there. Like everybody's out to screw everybody like you got absolutely no chance of there. So I, I, I'm going in there and wrestlemainia was like, well, none.

And I would forget to say it in Sam with like cut off Charlie and like ask a question like, hey, dumbest, you remember what you said about, blah, blah, blah. That's basically what he was saying.

Well, very strange and the same name. Same while you gotta you gotta thought out there because you don't. You introduce yourself wanna be able to say Charlie, so you got to get in that mode. But yeah, the resemblance as uncanny. So I did see that announcement from Charlie that she's doing things ESPN. I didn't even consider that. She would go back to using her government name there. Yeah. Now that like I don't want to say where the people out, because obviously, you know. WWE does make some tweaks to people's names for whatever reason. But yes, she's out there using government on ESPN and apparently she is going to still be doing w obviously. So just a an added role more as more so than how transition into something else completely. She did. She already did something hardy air with Ron. Is that really true? This is true. Yes.

Undertaker I wanna sit down and watch the whole thing. I heard that undertaker told an interesting story about Andre, the giant to.
