When I couldn't get my my rats to do the damage he had his efforts to make sure that we got the appropriate amount of claret a blood that we needed for the effect twelve years ago and raw in London. This another big memory for me. Shawn Michaels defeated w champion John CENA in an hour long non title match. It may be the best match ever on Monday night, raw and one of the reasons because obviously the skill set of both men including Shawn Michaels who argues of best ever long with the Nate. And they had an hour. They had time to tell a really cool story. I love that Mitch another should go. Check out network. It's two three years ago. Our our friend Joni lower fast way, China lot of issues there. Need to go into all that history. And I just felt so bad. She couldn't find happiness, and I still so much time with her that almost got to where I was I kind of dreaded going to TV because even though she was being used a new she would be there and. And I need to spend a lot of time with because she was going through a break up. And you know, she was contract was coming to the end. And a lot of stressful things, you know, they woman restaurants specially that air to is one easy. So I always like Joni feel badly for her heart was broken. And she was not responding well to it. And I'm sure a lot of us can understand and relate to a broken heart. And how we responded. And then finally this week in wrestling, we talked about a lot over the weekend in his in his areas home area. The great Bruno San Martino passed away one year ago this week and an arm more honorable man and pro wrestling, I've never met. Great Britain San Marino. And let's take a quick look at the birthdays Roddy piper birthday today would have been sixty five died in two thousand fifteen heart attack low taught rod we built a good relationship over time because I was office and hot rod interest. Anybody that was quote unquote office, but I trust and it lasted only how that works. I mentioned earlier the big show cone to Detroit legends of wrestling. Steve Lombardi is a Detroit guy.

Just he was exactly what Bill watch. It was teaching me when I was younger that that athletic superheavyweight guys will always have significant value in the wrestling business.

"You know what I'm saying? And I think I think it's something that's gonna help us. 'cause we've got a great young and light heavyweight roster going at the moment. But to add that buff say. A big bigger little the whole deal. I want it all I couldn't agree. More of that size is always been a fascinating marketing tool, and the I made you look theory is any quoted as it sounds from the PT Barnum day still is applicable. We've men do it when we see a beautiful woman. We do it when we get on the airplane. The first thing I look at gig on the airplane is one of the flight attendants looked like and Houma sitting by and so then you see a real good looking woman in ro three and you see once about my size in row four and on thinking oh God Amon row. Four not have been enrolled three this little, you know, just make the triple better point is we all turn our heads at things that are that we proceed to be really good beautiful sexy tall athletic who's that big bastard that kind of deal. Bill watches now used to walk down when we walk down the DFW terminal, we're flying places generally street for it. And he would look he looked. He people watched in even though he was a dirty. Oh, man. Sometimes like, we all are usually in nice way. I say folks, a cowboy is look at these guys. He was he was scouting bodies that he liked or was intrigued by and he didn't they had any buildings or not. But he'd meet them in hell on cowboy Bill. Watts and you'll see do gym work. You know, whatever he'd like talking heavyweight lift stuff. But never point is Cody he never stopped looking. And that's going to rubbed off on me. I'd never stopped looking for talent. I like, you know, I I was asking in Pittsburgh over the weekend, which is a wonderful experience. I'll tell you about, but I P last me about Josh Barnett. They asked me about Jake Hager. They asked me about Smith S U. Think we'll ever see them AWS guys. That's above my pay grade. I don't know. But I can tell you that if given the opportunity and those guys are available unless there's something about it. I don't have any idea about they're kind of they feel void somewhere down the road. Right. Right. Right. Right. So anyway, there's there's town out there. There's town out there. You know, we saw that that raw the Mooney nuts sake. Shakeup. What in crazy about the format of it? Sometimes the announced can be too stupid. I understand that. We should have all the answers are always ask more questions than provide answers for God, dang, man. It was disconcerting in that. Then anything that you do to your audience and a disconnect bad music badmashes bed punches that booking bed. Promo. Whatever anything we do to create. That disconnect is is a bad thing. We nobody don't have on our sales or anybody else. So have you had a hard time saying no to some of your buddies at work. I used to have that issue. A hard time saying no as much as I've been able to say the door the door is unlocked. You know, it's it's kinda up to them to take that door down. And the best example of all that is when I left WB I did that full year before I fully signed on for one one year with ring of honor. I did a full year around to every n d under the sun the best ones. The the the worst ones. The most niece popular ones. The most mom and pop popular. I did all of that. And it was that's the type of thing that kinda helps me gravitate towards men and then get into new Japan and the first Tokyo dome show, I did and things of that nature. So people know me, and how much I didn't rest on the idea that I was WBZ guy didn't sit on that. I didn't run on the idea that I was, you know, dusty sun gold dust, brother. I didn't sit on. On that. So people know when they asked me, hey, what opportunities exist all of the opportunities exist..

"But i do think that it's and you probably would want to point this out because again it might sound egotistical coming from you but i'm kind of programming geek because that's what i do in wrestling life and in real life but i think in maybe you learn this from doing the tony show that while you know the bischoff format is the conrad thompson format it's different like you've you have now figured out a way to play to shivani strengths and you've reformatted that show and the bischoff format is not the same as the bruce format you know what i mean i feel like it was it was a pretty smart deliberate thing to kind of just go after full fully formed concepts as opposed to specific characters or dates because as you learned i think through trial and error there's not very many people besides bruce prichard that remember all those details yeah you know you're exactly right it's the old paul heyman man accentuate the positives hide the negatives and that's what we sort of had to do with tony shivani is just adjustment stream and sort of play his strengths and let's have some silly slapstick comedy and at the same time you know leverage his strengths as announcer and on bischoff you know we're going to skew a little more business light because that's sort of his perspective and we can talk about the corporate structure and all that stuff whereas with bruce you know we're going to get some oth really do still believe braces the best storyteller in wrestling and so you know a lot of times with bruce i just t him up and let it go and we've got enough chemistry now for just being real life friends for so long that i can start a sentence and he can finish it he knows you know i'm the scottie pippen his michael jordan and you know that's a weird analogy but i really do believe that he knows like oh he he wants to head for this bit and so that's almost what its become on bruce this show was more of a.

nerdy things we have in common

"Hello time. and welcome to the covert podcast. Today we'll be talking about focusing on the things we have in common then wrestling podcast. I know you will love. Lastly, we'll take a look at a comic book that takes a dark twist on the biblical flood. So let's get started. From two thousand ten to twenty thirteen. I went to San Diego Comecon for those who no, I is the biggest con in America and maybe even in the world, I'm not exactly sure. However, it has an incredible amount of people that attend over one hundred and twenty five thousand people come to the con- and the all have the same passion for all things nerdy for one person. It might be the passion for superman for another. It might be an obsession with the twilight movies. Many of these people would sit for days in line to tend to panel for their favorite TV show or movie. The camaraderie was thick, and that's the case with most cons. We all have a commonality about what we nerd out about. Do I agree with all of them on social issues like abortion, no. Do I agree with them on political issues like Republican versus democrat? No, I agree with them on getting together and earning out about the lake. Marvel story arc, yeah, for some of them I do. So instead of name calling and insulting each other about the things we disagree on, why not focus on what we do agree on, find common ground and invest time in that, and you might be shocked at the other things you will find you do agree on. This allows both parties to listen to each other before the walls come up because now we're comfortable with each other on the things we have in common, and we like to nerd out about in today's era of polarization we seem to spend more time focusing on things we disagree on might just be one little thing instead of the things we have in common so much so that we won't even spend holidays like thanksgiving together because of those things we disagree about over at not your pastors podcast. They were talking about Christians being divisive about their political views so much so that members witness OSI it with with each other. Now you would think out of all the people Christians could unite regardless of political views. I'm sure I interact with many people who don't have the same worldview as I do not just at cons. I'm sure you do too. It doesn't matter because as long as we try to stay focused on the one or two things we have in common, whether it's fishing or baseball, or coin collecting football or podcasting, whatever it is focused on those things and spend time together doing those things that you have in common and the things you disagree on. Won't matter as much. Talk about the things you have in common. Tell stories about the things you have in common expound on what you have in common and nerd it up. Make your commonalities bigger than your differences. All the sudden you're differences. Don't seem so big compared to the size of the things that you have in common the impact you can have on other people. When you have a common focus can be huge. Use the nerdy things you like to unite instead of divide each other. For example. Maybe as a kid, you collected masters of the universe figures. Talk about that. Talk about the figures you had. Maybe the other person likes the same figures you had when you were a kid, maybe they had some of the same excess review did like castle gray scholar, snake mountain, or maybe they did different things to modify their figures that you might think are cool or maybe you did the modifications, whatever it is, talk about those things and tell about when I got this figure for Christmas, I was so excited or I got this figure at a clearance sale at stores and picked it up for only two dollars. Talk about those stories together. You'd be surprised at how well you can mash in connect with the person when you have that commonality so that when the differences come up, maybe it won't be so divisive because you'll be focusing on some of the things that you have in common with that person. Now, on a similar note, I read recently about people using dungeons and dragons to help kids with autism and social anxiety. People living with autism spectrum disorder, experienced challenges with communication. So social action, and sometimes they display restrictive and re repetitive behavior. Organizations like game to grow us tabletop role playing games to help teens, adolescence and emerging adults become more confident, creative and socially capable. The inherent benefits of tabletop role playing games are numerous and become even more beneficial. If intentionally facilitated by professional the games, encourage communication and team building in the fun safe environment. Now, Dr. Raphael Baca moslo I probably mispronounced the name. So I'm sorry in advance. The clinical director of take this uses DVD to help teens who are struggling to daft solid social skills. They learned those tough to teach aspects of socializing, like procreate communication, forming friendships, empathy, and other social nuances. As you can see unity in something like tabletop gaming, like dean D. Is being used to help those people in difficult places. In this situation, it helps others relax open up about what they're struggling with in the process. They inadvertently learn new skills on clued links to the game to grow organization and the take this group in the show notes. So please go to covert ner dot net to find out exactly what they're doing. You can see some of the pictures read about some of the gaming setups that they have and maybe participate in what they're doing in your local community. I found that and thought it was something that I needed to share because it's something taking something nerdy something we have in common and using it to help others. Now it's time to do some podcast recommending if you like wrestling in the eighties and nineties, like I did, you'll love the podcast something to wrestle with Bruce Prichard. It's hosted by Bruce pressured, also known as brother love in the WWF back in the late eighties, early nineties and superfan Conrad Thompson. As I mentioned, I was a big WWF fan from about eighty seven to ninety three. It's great podcasts because you can revisit those old storylines if that's the timeframe you liked. Now, I should preface Bruce Richard was involved from, I believe, eighty seven. So after wrestlemainia three and was off and on with WWF until I think two thousand three or two thousand four. So he covers a pretty big, broad span, broad span of time. Not just the time I'm talking about. So if you watched wrestling from the late eighties to early two, thousands, he has some firsthand accounts of what was going on. On behind the scenes and he's a fantastic storyteller. His impersonations of Vince McMahon are priceless. That's almost worth listening to the podcast alone to hear him to his impersonation of inst- McMahon, the popularity of this podcast skyrocketed so much. They have hundreds of thousands of downloads per episode. I highly recommend it for any race wrestling fan. They highlight wrestlers. They highlight some of the paper views the highlight some frames, so it's great. Just go check it out. They have a big archive that you can go back to. Sometimes they'll just fire up an old survivor series from say, nineteen Ninety-seven just watch it together and you can hear their commentary as they're watching the event. Lots of Riecke simply search in your podcast app for something to wrestle and you will find it and I'll put a link in the show. No, so you can find it easier as well. I wanted to mention a comic book that just read literally a few days ago called dark arc. It's by aftershocks comics. It is an excellent. Book and I'll just read the solicit here and you can hear exactly what it's about. The wickedness of mankind has moved the creator to destroy the world by way of the flood. Noah has been tasked with building an art to save his family in the animals of the world, but this is not. Noah story for darker powers have commanded the source or SRI to build his own arc and save the unnatural creatures of the world such as bam, Pires dragons, Nagara and the Mana core. But what will happen on a vessel crawling with monsters where insidious intrigue and horrific violence are the rule of law from the writer Colin Bunn who did X men blue deadpool envenom in artist, one DOE American monster world reader comes a sinister tale of biblical proportions that had to be told at aftershocks comics. Like I said, I've read issues one through five, five is what they're up to as of this recording. And I think the concept is fantastic. The storytelling is compelling, the artist. Great. Callin does a good job of keeping the story moving along at a good pace. However, he threw. Goes out a few bread crumbs of possible ways. He might take the story in later issues just enough to keep you reading and wondering what is going to happen happen next at issue five, the rain stops. Now I assume this would be a limited series run at first thinking about it. When I mean is you're probably not going to see this, go to issue three hundred, four hundred like some other titles do I could be wrong. They could go ahead and take the story after the land or excuse me after the water subsides and they can get back out on land and maybe show the interaction with the unnatural creatures with the humans on this new world that they came upon after the flood. I don't know, but I think it's definitely worth the time for you to pick this one up and check it out on clued. Lincoln the show notes to where you can read more about it and look at some of the art. It's shutout time if you'd like a shot on this podcast, that'd be more than glad to do shot out for you. Simply engage me on Twitter, Instagram.
