Davey now thinks you'll be whipped by both the schoolmaster and his own father. My father told me he would whip me if I didn't start immediately to the school, finding me rather too slow about starting. He gathered about a two year old hickory stick and broke after me.

David S. Reynolds on Abraham Lincoln
"Our guest. Today is dr david. S reynolds historian who has written extensively on the civil war era. He's won numerous awards including the bancroft prize. And the ambassador book award just to name a few. And he is the author of the book. Abe abraham lincoln in his times professor reynolds. Thank you for being on our show. Great to be here richard. Thank you great. So much is made about president. Lincoln's lack of experience and his many supposed- professional failures prior to winning the presidency. But you seem to push back against this narrative. So what's the real story here. yeah One of the best books on him david. Donald to lincoln one of the better known books actually says very frankly that no president has ever entered the highest office being the least prepare less prepared than than lincoln that is the least prepared ball and on the surface kind of looks that way because he had less than one year of education just primary school education and Thou that was it and He didn't go through any formal formal of self education. Either but what i found is that he had something far more important. A insatiably curious. If he were on the law circuit around illinois he would go to a farmer and say. How does that machine work. And what brand of cow is that and and the pig over there. What can you describe that to me. Very very curious about the world around him And also he loved to read poetry in particular newspaper small so poetry and poetry kind of organized his thoughts and he memorized shakespeare by the page. She didn't do it to impress people but Suddenly suddenly would come out with a shakespearean soliloquy though is on his hard disk his brain and Or burns poem or something like that. So he was a really exposed to different levels of culture so much so that his contemporary emerson said There's one hero who stands out from the rest as somebody who bridges the entire range of experience from the very highest shakespeare of the opera. And all of that to the lowest. He like body humor and grotesque Frontier humor and emerson said he went down as far so the the very dogs believed in him so In a way who's very very open to experience and is that lincoln that i'm really interested in the songs he loved the poems he loved and what really made him a what what was going on inside of him right and you talk about. Lincoln's ran as an era of sensationalism. Violence susannah humor surreal the surreal in the bizarre which i think for anyone that follows politics now is a bit comforting to know that it's it's been like this for a while. So can you expand on just what you meant by that. Well i think there's been interesting sensationalism for a long time in many cultures but the difference was that because of changes in print printing techniques and also distribution techniques. Suddenly this was available to the masses and so the newspapers they used to be used to six hundred suddenly were once the penny papers and they were filled with sensational stories about murders and suicides and oh adultery and all all all this stuff and so yeah. I mean Linking grew up in this kind of culture. Also in popular humor lincoln said it was characterized by grotesque nece and it was a very violent kind of humor of gouging and and scrapping and scraping and a often feature these kind of frontier types. That were just wild men and people get a lotta thrills out of these kind of very very wild escapades in the crockett manuscripts the davy crockett manuscripts almond accents. Helper and p.t barnum. Who was a sensation. He was founded show business and wasn't in the circus business back then but he was in the museum business and he put on sensational displays like a fiji mermaid. Who is this beautiful blonde. Half naked woman had presented that way in in the posters. But actually it was just a a monkey's torso tied to a salmon's tail assistant in some water. And anyway the biggest. The smallest the fattest put things on display so in a way Lincoln had to serve accommodate culture as well because he was sold as as abe. That's book is called the kind of rough frontiers men with his sleeves rolled up and he's wielding an axe in these splitting the rails and by the time that It was advertised that way. It had been many years since. He's splitting rails because he was a respectable lawyer by the time war. Good suits and all of that and it was making a good income but he allowed himself to be sold as a even though he hated the name but he said without names like old. Abe uncle abe Honesty i wouldn't have been elected. I would not have been elected. So he was sort of put on display almost in a barnum barnum like way in eighteen sixty.
How Sephora is tackling racial bias in retail
"Sephora. Just released a study on racial bias in retail. This was really cool because they partnered with four academics who very well known in this world doctor. Cassie pittman cleaner. Dr david crockett. Witnessing fowler and dr patricia raspberry and so sephora like new they had to bring in the big guns to help them study this back in nineteen. They have also in the spotlight for anyone who didn't know they've been in the news two four about some some stuff that was why the study was initiated. Because they knew they had issues in this with both the retail associates and their customers Profiled so so. I went to a presentation that gave showing us the highlights of the research at just a couple of things. I wanna point out. But i'm going to link to. They gave us this little booklet with more of the highlights at a leg to on the blog. So you can look into this. Because i think a lot of other retailers or if you work in beauty or even if you're shopper which she while are of beauty there's things that you can take away from this. That are interesting and so far is gonna Going to work on some stuff. But here's the highlight so three and four retail. Shoppers feels to seventy four percent of people. Feel that the marketing failed to showcase a diverse range of skin tones body types hair textures. So even though we've just been talking about there's been movement in the last couple years clearly. Not everybody feels that they are being spoken to in the beauty world and in fact black. Shoppers are three times more likely to feel like this than white shoppers. They also looked at all. Shoppers of colors not just black and white But in addition to locate shoppers they looked at the associates the retailers and what was going on there and a lot of the retailers talked about a lack of training to help people diverse background. So when someone walks in the store and have a hair type different than yours if you're the retail associate. You're like nobody gave me training on how to do this. The other thing. They didn't seem to get training on was implicit bias. Only forty percent of retail employees surveyed reported having unconscious bias training. Now that might sound familiar to you because remember back in two episode to forty three. We had dr susan taylor on. She's a dermatologist. And she was talking about how everybody at u. penn which is where she works was getting this implicit bias. Training for doctors. Obviously retail associates needs the same type of thing. You look at a shopper. You think things regardless of your race it informs the way you interact with that shopper and retail associates want this training so sephora actually has made a pledge that by the end of the year one hundred percent of all new employees will had implicit bias training which i think is using is really
Davey Crocket and The Frozen Sun
"Lived a man named davy crockett. If you've heard of old navy it's probably for his final stand at the alamo or more likely for his raccoon skin cap. The cap was made of thick raccoon for for keeping warm during the harsh western winters. And it had the bushy tail hanging down the back. Davy crockett was more than the alamo and a cap though he was an adventurer one of the brave people who saw the endless frontier and waited in a man at his favorite swimming hole even during the coldest winters rarely would he be sitting peacefully indoors or relaxing. He spent his days out in nature sleeping in the mountains and bathing in the rivers. Other folks thought davy. Crockett might just be a little crazy but if so they were lucky to have him because it was on one particularly cold morning that davy. Crockett saved the world. He woke with the sun as he always did. In those days it was deep winter in the mountains. Where even though the donning son was bright. It didn't seem to offer any warmth at all. Icy wind howled like a banshee and even the animals had the good sense to be hibernating. What a beautiful morning davies said to himself he tried to rise up out of his bedroll but it was so covered in ice. He was stuck fast with a little work. He managed to get an arm free and then he was able to use a hammer and chisel to get the rest of the way out. It's cold one. No doubt he said but it'll get warmer. When the son gets a meyde higher. He tried to get a fire going to make breakfast but all his would was frozen solid even the coals from the night before were nothing but snowballs davey tried to spit in disappointment but it froze halfway to the ground and shattered on an icy stone. Well ours coffee today. I guess he said he makes some coffee grounds into some snow and eight. It like a snow cone. It wasn't tasty but it seemed to help wake him up a little. Where's the darn sun. He said looking at the horizon with a start of shock. He saw that. The sun hadn't risen any higher. It was still stuck on the horizon like tongue on an ice cube and it was starting to look more blue than yellow. What in our nation is going on with that davey climbed up a nearby mountain peak to get a better view. Every step was so icy. Put his hand to his coon skin. Cap to shield. His eyes peered at the horizon. Oh lord no the frontiers mun was brave and he thought he'd seen it all in his adventures. But this was something new and something awful. It was so cold that the sun itself had frozen on the horizon. He could see it stuck between two peaks of ice sunbeam's frozen in their tracks like icicles. Well this is no good at all davies said. He looked in the other direction and saw a little town. At the base of the mountain. The buildings were all coated in a fine layer of ice. Like a frosted cake. The pastors were like sheets of glass. And even the smoke from chimneys was frozen in place. Well darn davy. Crockett said to himself from high up on the mountain peak. Either i'm gonna fix this mess or we gotta get the cows so my skates he thought about cows skating for a minute and decided that they wouldn't like it that much better. He just fixed the problem before all the milk got frozen into ice cream. Of course most people may have been at a loss on how to fix a frozen sun but davy. Crockett wasn't like most people. He didn't wait around thinking or planning or any of that now. He just pointed himself at the frozen sun and started walking.

While in Congress, he opposed add Jackson's argument to relocate local Indians. Congress. Crockett became a freemason.

Garden as refuge with Ken Druse
"Kind of an eerie juxtaposition out the window and unfair days outside when we can go outside right now unfolding beauty and innocence. You know tiny bulbs plump Little Buds and the headlines. Hourly and daily so You know I wanted to backtrack about what gardening means tests and sort of what brought us to it. What brought you. How long have you been gardening since I was very young house was a teenager and I started with indoor plants and got really turned on and then when I went to college in Rhode Island I was kind of close to Danielson Connecticut which is where low Geez is and you know I was thinking about all this stuff and I think that shopping has a lot to do with my acquisitive NECE and interest in? You know seeing the new plant finding new plant thing will there? Also incredible and shopping online is something you can do now so really well. So you're GONNA be spending some money and when you you said you were a teenager and so forth. What did it besides these sort of amassing a collection? That sort of instinct. That you apparently had Was there some other escapism or something else that brought you to it or you know. I don't know I don't want to project too. I mean I can tell you mine but I just you know I don't know I I know I have a need to nurture and I just love. It's so exciting to see you know. It seems like slow-motion in most cases but to see a plant grow and thrive or something from seed that sometimes. That's pretty fast and from sea to in your case edibles. It's a miracle and to participate in that it it. I'm thinking how heartwarming it is. And that's it's you know it's a boost. Then it makes you. It makes you think about tomorrow. Yeah Yeah I mean for me. I was in my twenties and I mean you know the story most of my listeners. Know Story You know as my twenties. My father had died the next year. My mother was forty. Nine was diagnosed with early onset. Alzheimer's disease I don't even think they called it that at that time but that was the idea and so there. I was called home for my to cover my widowed mother and that unfolded this strange time in my young life and I was close to home to stay close to home during the day. I had a job at night. Someone else came and care for her at night. And what are you GONNA do? I mean as I say you can only watch so much daytime. Tv When you're twenty four twenty five years old and so I got a garden book. As someone gave me Crockett's victory garden and I would seem sad expression. Victory Gardens seems appropriate right now and I you know and I just started doing the stuff in it like I started going to the local garden center and whatever it said I just bought those seeds or that plant or just did these crazy experiments and obviously killed most of the things in the early going. You know I didn't know what I was doing. But that was my entree was during a very dark time and my my younger life So it's been a refuge for me You know number of times it seen me through. I have often said my gardens has saved me many times so I find I'm thinking of spending more time outside because I can't go at the moment And all of my vents. I'm sure like yours have been postponed at least through. May and I'm sure through June and whatever as well Are you thinking of doing more are you? I'm trying to assign myself some projects things I've put off because usually I have garden visitors and I can't make a mess and leave the mess there for weeks while I you know do a Jew Be Greenwich Ovation or something. I'm thinking well. This is the time Margaret. Nobody's coming right well. We we already talked about me shopping. I haven't really gotten that into that but I probably will usually I shop for something because I see something and then I track it down online and then that leads me. Oh they have a minimum order. Oh and then there's five plants and you only wanted one and then there's shipping savings if you buy forty nine dollars for the plant's not that. I've ever done that but I it's almost time for me to spruce up the house plans and that's something. I can do something I should do. You know do a house plant Rehab. I every day I run to light cart to see who's changed or what seed has sprouted. Miracle never tired of that miracle so there there's that Planted some perennials. Yesterday that came in the mail and they were dormant. How so that's happening already in? That's going to continue. I got a Beirut Cherry tree that I'm growing pot I don't know why right well but whatever gets you through. I mean I think right so you said I loved. You said WHO's changed. You went to the light cart To look at your all your little babysit who. You didn't say what she said. Who and I think of them. The same way to plants are not some inanimate objects some it right. You know I think of them as as as who not one but so you said House Plant Rehab. So this is a time for that and we have time. 'cause we're home and we have time to notice and we can. That's a good suggestion for me. Because a lot of years. I get so hectic. Try and get ready for the open gardens. I don't do my repotting of those house plants on their way out the door for the summer or do you know what I mean. I skip it. So that's a really good one when they're on their way out which is late usually mid. May and wouldn't it be great to for me to clean the leaves with a sponge and a little couple of drops dish soap in accord of warm water? And just clean off the dust but also some of them get a little city mole alden. There's all sorts of insects that can actually be removed with a sponge in a tiny bit of soap and water so The things that have ever removed most of the house plants and things that have firm leaves like citrus and Camelia. If you grow things like that and philodendron which you can go anywhere some philodendron. I put my hand under the leaf than just rub the top brush sponging were almost everything comes right off. The plants look so much better and then they say thank you. Yeah Yeah 'cause I mean. Spending a winter indoors is not really their thing. And all that unseen dust that moves around in the air with The heating system when heating systems on in any house right. And you find that fine dust like my clive is all have that by this time of year and they need a nice Tending you so you have you have a Camelia You Grow Hoyas don't you? I I do. There's one at the kitchen window and luckily that's very close the kitchen sink because the plant small enough. It'll go right in the kitchen sink and get washed off there or you have the climate as you. Probably take him to the shower. Yeah I do I do but Yeah but the hoyas. I've never grown them. I've grown them somehow as needed greenhouse. And well we can talk about what they are. They used to be part of the milkweed family but I think they've separated them now but they're semi succulent. They have thick leaves. They're pretty slow growing except in the spring when they kind of shoot. I have one wonderful one called Hoya Carey. I and I started with one leaf in a pot and it stayed that way for about five years. Want an apart- many years ago and then all of a sudden it just exploded a now. It's a very big viney plant. I have it on a a wreath circle. You know stuck in this well. It's a long story but I wound round and round and it has beautiful flowers when it blooms in the summer and it has heart shaped leaves. I have another one that has purple flowers. They don't flower very often. And it's important not to trim eight trim where the flowers come because it blooms on Spurs Kinda like an apple tree and it'll bloom over and over again on the same spurs so you have to not cut those dead head so to speak to the flowers and their fragrance almost all of them and if you do cut it or it will bleed white. Latex like a lot of succulents and milkweed male creates right. Right right

"crockett" Discussed on Based On a True Story
"So on that fateful day in eighteen eighty nine when she was bushwack my rebel surely died on that dirt road. Shut off her Horse Bell Star Road On. That's for me it's all about and that's what I will continue to do. Thank you so much for coming on to chat about Davy Crockett and David Crockett and starting to separate some of the fact from the fiction that we saw in the movie now.

I'd like to thank Michael Wallace once again for coming on the show. If you WANNA learn more about the history behind the Real David. Crockett go grab. Michael's book called David Crockett the lion of the West. But that's just one of Michael's books as he mentioned at the end there. He's working on his twentieth book. So there's plenty more great stories from history that he's written about. I'll make sure to add a link to that book and we can learn more about all of Michael's books in the show notes for this episode as well as on. The show is home on the web based on a true story. Podcast DOT COM. Okay now it's time for the answer to our two truths and a lie game from the beginning of the episode as a refresher here are the two truths and one lie number one Davy. Crockett was responsible for the peace negotiations that ended the war with the Creek nation number two Davy Crockett was captured at the Alamo and later killed by order of General Santa Anna Number. Three the Real David. Crockett met a theatrical version of himself called Nimrod wildfire. Did you find out which one is ally. Let's start with the end number three. That is true as Michael explained the subtitle of his book. David Crockett the line of the West. The subtitle being the line of the west part that comes from a play where at one of the shows in Washington DC. The Real Crockett met a theatrical character called Nimrod wildfire that was based on his life. Well perhaps a more accurate way to phrase that would be that the plays character was based on all the tall tales written about Davy Crockett Adventures. That brings us to number two. That is also true as Michael explained the movie showing fess. Parker's version of Davy. Crockett going down at the Alamo swinging. Old Betsy over. His head is not true. What really happened was that Mr Crockett was captured and later killed at the order of General Santa Anna. That means the lie is number one. The movie tries to make it seem like Davy Crockett. Some sort of a peace negotiator that ended the war with the creeks. What is Michael? Explained is just not true at all that just about wraps this episode before we go the last thing I like to do on each episode is share. How much time and effort went into creating the episode now.

"crockett" Discussed on Based On a True Story
"There again that goes back to his integrity and the fact that he just didn't want to see people die and not be treated as human being. We see a little bit of that. At least I get this implication from movie when we see Davy. Crockett go against the leader of the creeks in the movie. At least it's a chief named red stick and we see this happen with a one on one fight where he tracks down the chiefs red stick and he has this one on one fight with the chief and he ends up beating him. But then chief red stick says he's not gonNA trust the the government because they're not you know he's not going to join the treaty but David. Crockett gives his word that you can go home and live peacefully on your land. It's you know I'm giving you my word. Shake hands and the movie just implies. Oh the war's over everybody gets to go home and live in peace in thanks to Davy Crockett's negotiation skills. He solved everything. It's kind of how the movie shows things happening. But I'm sure that that's not how things actually happened. Can you explain how that war came to an end? And how was Davy Crockett involved in any of that? No I mean that's of course the Hollywood. That's Uncle Walt Disney's version and that's all and good the tied up in a nice little package with a pretty boat. No carpet was not a negotiator. He did not have a famous or infamous battle. Go to combat with chief at all what happened. Ultimately at the close of those house Jackson of course ended up and down on the Gulf coast and the final battle. Really the war. The armistice was bitten had already been written by the time they've been he didn't get the word time in the very famous and romanticized battle do. Harlan's where he enlisted the help of the famous pirate buccaneer Hershon Lafitte and his Ruffians and they killed many of the British soldiers who were walking right into their musket fire and of course as we often do in this country that ultimately ensure Jackson years later his rise to the presidency we love to elect war heroes to office but what the Cherokees were not counting on his that all these gestures about adopting the the white culture and so forth would do them no good they could accept the White Man's God take on his language take on his lifestyle even dress like some of them and they started a plantation system with cotton and which meant they acquired slaves African slaves just like the the white folks did and guess what when the time came Andrew Jackson. Who BY THAT? Time was the president of the United States and no lover of Indians and all had them removed and taken off their land. Their ancestral land was some discovery of Gold Georgia. Well we have to get to that goal. So the Cherokees the creeks the Chart Toes chickasaw seminoles all had to be up rooted in on a variety and many many. Not just one there were many. Many trails appears taking these people from ancestral homes from their native land in moving them into Indian territory. Today's Oklahoma many of them died along. The way marched off at point of Bannet in on land on watery trails of tears. They they came here before that happened. We had Crockett. Risa like really a hero. An unsung hero as we're to take Jackson on and try to prevent that from happening and that story is very important and really virtually unknown by most people who aren't familiar with the true story of Crockett Jackson. Then or is that getting ahead of our story not a lot. We're going to jump ahead some years because what happened to Crockett eventually well. After the creek war as to the rest of the teens and into the eighteen twenties and so forth is that he kept up with his frontier way of life and his wife and children hunting carrying on but he also became interested in politics and he had a natural ability to spellbound an audience with his storytelling and that led him eventually to local office. Stayed Office in. Tennessee. And miraculously this frontier Zeman was elected to the US Congress and that was a time when most of the people in political office on the national level where from the upper classes. So it was. He was really A novelty when he came to Washington but the way he's portrayed and in film is a more of a country bumpkin in any wasn't he was an intelligent man he literate. He's a reader. You know he could really keep an audience stairs. I said spellbound. That's what helped him politically and when he saw what was going on with Jackson in Jackson's cronies in their move to expel all lease Indian tribes to Indian territory. He stood up against it. He stood up against it in the halls of Congress he railed against them in the halls of Congress he told Jackson. Please stop we have trouble. These people enough enough is enough. Let them be any really not only took on Jackson but his constituents so they he betrayed them. He's a wealthy Tennessee. Landowners these poor dirt farmers the squatters all of them one that Indian land. And that's take it. Get RID OF THEM. Put them in their own little place. Let them right out there. An Indian territory and crooked said now when probably one of the most gehring and dangerous moves a political figure could make.

"Before we get into some of the specific details and storylines that we see in Davy Crockett King of the wild frontier. I was like to take a step back and just get a sense for how a historian and author feels about the movie so overall. What did you think about the way? They portrayed Davy Crockett on screen in the movie. That's a two prong answer to that question. The first Prong is this. How did I feel about it when I first saw the film and I saw the TV show? I was ecstatic. Because I was you know an eight-year-old kid and my dreams came true. David crooked leaped out of that big screen right into my lap and the personage of says Parker. It was everything I thought he would be. Buckskin raccoon have a big long gun. You know killing bears and just bigger than life. So I thought it was great at sort of scraped greg film but as I matured and grew up and became interested in history and of course developed this writing career mine. I learn more and more about the true Davy Crockett. And that's what really sparked my interest in in writing a book. David Crooked King of the wild frontier is perfectly great. If you're a big eyed kid sitting down and watching a rerun of it on the two birds are or even reading some of the vintage books for kids about crack. That largely came out when I was a kid back in the fifties but it was also time to tell the adult story the true story of Crockett and my h my editors agreed and I sat down and opened a vein as I always do in the process of writing and came out with David. Crockett the lion of the West that leads directly into my next question which is round how the movie starts now. According to the opening song in the movie we hear that the years eighteen thirteen and the movie were I to him. As General Andy Jackson leading the fight against the creeks as the song kind of plays out and we see this animated Arrow hitting a fort in the woods. It bursts into flame kind of punctuates the war and this is how we first meet fess Parker's version of Davy Crockett in the movie as a scout. For General Jackson's soldiers. Now was the movie correct and showing that Davy. Crockett was a scout for General Andrew. As opposed to Andy Jackson soldiers partially Crockett did during the creek war as it's called Around the Worby t to become a member of the Tennessee militia and that was all under the command of General Andrew Jackson Old Hickory. Is the Anglo population called the native American population? The Creeks Cherokees various the five tribes that were ultimately removed at point. Abandon it and brought to Oklahoma at that time Indian territory. His name in English was sharp knife. It wasn't old hickory. But he had some interaction with Jackson but he wasn't. He was never constantly Jackson side or conferring with them and so forth but he did serve under him and he served in that creek war but he did not take a lot of pleasure in that war in his experiences experiencing combat and death up close and personal. They're really made a mark on Mr Crockett and ultimately became the source of problem that came to the surface many years later when Andrew Jackson became president another main character that we see at this point was George Russell. Davy Crockett side. Was He actually a real person? As well George Russell played by by the was that sort of David Gear in these type of films and stories in this country and hero has to have a sidekick you know for every Roy Rogers there has to be a not Dale Evans. Pat Buttram it. You just need sidekicks and really what he was composite character. He was a little bit of this guy and a little bit of that guy and served his purpose. This sort of the sun. Chopin's Panza to Crockett's Don Quixote. That's a great great analogy there now in the movie. What kind of thrust into the war between the United States and the Creek Nation? We don't get a lot of context from the movie about what is going on. We just the movie implies that the United States of the good guys and the creeks are the bad guys but of course with any war. It's all a matter of perspective. Can you give us a little bit more historical context for this war? That was going on that. We've seen the movie between the US and the Creek nation. We're sure during those years a war of eighteen twelve which went on for a couple of years. We're fighting Great Britain but a lot of tribes were taking sides either with the The new fairly new United States are and that certainly happened in in the mid South and deep South. Where most of all this conflict took place in over to the eastern seaboard so the Cherokee tribe large significant southeastern tribes trying to get along with the United States in the government but also maintain their own integrity and heritage as the other tribes wanted to the allied with the American forces. And so you had them fighting along with the militias of Tennessee Georgia against the creeks and ultimately what happened is there were many many Of course Jackson and his troops and allies best at the mall. Eventually of course beat them into submission. Henson aimed sharp knife that also it caused some among the tribes. And what it did for. Mr Crockett is raw. Lanky frontiers men as I said experiencing combat for the first time. It really troubled him because he witnessed. We can only be called atrocities burning of villages to killing women. Children everything that every war is cracked up to be and nothing romantic nothing. Noble about war. It is just a to coin a phrase hell and that really was driven home to KROC. He had no problem going out and slain beasts in the forest. He wasn't frontiersman. He was actually a professional hunter. Who's a bear? Hunter probably killed between three hundred fifty nine four hundred bears his life and he he could do that in the didn't bother him but he was. He had no need to see or kill any or see anyone else killed. And that's very important. Because once again I'll refer to years later and we'll get to that point where his decision and how that war influenced him came to cause the end of his relationship as it was with with Andrew Jackson. Green Point there that you know there's a there's a difference between frontiers. Mun and experiencing war there as you were mentioning that though may be curious about. How old was Crockett around that time? Well let's do the math. I don't think this is giving the story away. Crooked died in eighteen thirty six at the age of forty nine much too young so twenty five twenty six roughly. I believe yeah all right in there right in that period and at that time he he was in. He was throughout his adult life throughout his whole life. Actually he was a very vital man. He was very robust. He was a man of the American frontier which started on the eastern coast of the United States and just marched westward and by the time. Crockett had come of age. The frontier was where he lived because of that invisible line had come to the mid South and was approaching the big river the Mississippi and it would be the Trans Mississippi West and we would keep going and going near the to`real we until of course we hit the Pacific shore and so he was just about a decade ahead of that remarkable interesting period. We call manifest destiny which started in the mid forties about a decade after died. And that's that's of course a whole nother story. But he was one of the early foot soldiers. If you will of what became manifest destiny and it would have been interesting to see how he would ever acted. Because again this whole notion that the Anglo population of the country with him. How blessed by this guy who looked down and said you have the manifest destiny your destiny to conquer this whole continent and everyone bought into that because that land can be ours and there's no one out there where there were in fact a lot of people out there a good hunk of their real estate along to Mexico including Texas in that whole Western shore and The entire American South West and from Mexico from today's Mexico border to Canada and it was just the height of arrogance and crooked would probably I would predict have not thought too much of that. He he may have eventually gone after California himself because he was Gypsy foot and he liked to keep on the move but he certainly wouldn't have had the same attitude that many people had about all the many many Indian tribes that lived in that area forever and ever and all the Mexican citizens who resided.

Bischoff attempts to revive the Monday Night Wars
"Where we're living out around quite a bit here but eventually it's an ask. The BISCHOFF IS GONNA make a bold move and he's GonNa put. WCW programming head to head on Monday night of against Monday night raw with Nitro when you first hear the news that hey we've got real competition and WCW on Monday night and they're going to be live every week whereas we're taping shows in advance at this point what's your what's your take on that. Do you think this is real competition or is wwe still perpetually going to be a little big brother other of of the WWF. I thought the WF headed a massive head. Start as they do right now. No company is going to threaten. WBZ market share anytime. Anytime soon. Luckily mine or your lifetime. Conrad quite frankly. But that's not a sad sad tale to tell because there's plenty of money out there revenues to to earn in the entertainment world that cutting a W for example can can enjoy enjoy and make significant profits over time. So I I just I think that On what we're talking about Tran thought this left I was thinking about something else is nitro. Oh Yeah Yeah my issue is this. I I questioned where they have the in-house personnel to pull it off in a big way and of course a lot of that stuff was You Know David Crockett part of getting a credit for some of the. Because he was one of the you know one of the producers there an onsite people but giving the staff have to gather to do the the you know to to the rigging the lighting everything I didn't know they were. They were ready to do that because everything had always been such a smaller scale Ale and then to be able to do it live every Monday. A major us a whole different world so I didn't know that that was going to be as successful as it was and it was a pleasant surprise actually because it made the business look better overall because they hate they had great production values in the show's look clean slick. You might not agree with creative. Hell that's normal. You can say that any heir any show with the the the show look good and I thought that was a step in the right direction for them. So so you could. You can tolerate a good-looking show. That might not be the greatest creative for a little longer now forever a little longer than he can. The other way around.

"Look like as we sort oh to fill in the gaps at this point. Are you married Aaron or Y'all just still dating nano. We're married so do you give her a heads up that hey a I'm flying to New York to meet with Vance think I'm quitting. Is She. Nervous anxious. This is going to be a life change for her to. I'm sure she was. I was nervous but I think Erin has always believed in me. I hope she has more times comes out of not I've made decisions as far as staying places and being abused and not properly used. I don't WanNA say abused but not properly used stayed with companies. Companies may be longer than I shared. When everybody around me was saying go your aren't Anderson Dam Piss. Only those folks go company X. Whatever that was and I would say okay especially when those those twelve years that I was fortunate enough to work with. WCW No matter and I really had some instances we'll get on get into later down the road where I did get talk abused and used and not used properly but more so screwed on my money Raleigh and but it was steal guaranteed money it was not nearly the schedule that I had with the WWF and hell or high water every the two weeks that check came in so if I had a three year contract at the time I could plan our lobs around that that amount of money and you you knew you were going to get it three years from now no matter what and that offered a lot of sanity for me a lot of stability because in this business when I came up if you didn't work if you got hurt and you didn't work you didn't get paid. You lost a job. You didn't get paid eight. If you were between territories and you had two weeks before you started you didn't get paid you got paid every two weeks with WCW and and a lot of times even Erin would say you sure you don't WanNa make a move and I know honey. I won't our stability of our family to be in check and I wanna WanNa know what we're going to be making a year from now or two years from now I want to know that we can balance our lives and she's been nothing but supportive and I hope I haven't been wrong yet. We'll see when he told ricky relieving. He said that you know his reaction is he thinks you're blowing off steam and you're going to be in. Fayetteville the next afternoon for TV and it doesn't really sink in until you guys aren't really there. What did you do after the show you know. It feels like the horsemen were going out after the show. Did you guys go out and celebrate your last night in and rigged are still thinks you're pulling his leg or you're just upset or what did the evening after the show look like for you telly. I want to say I had about thirty double seabreezes. It sounds about right. I'm absolutely certain it was the indoor record I'm sure till they had had something comparable and we got up the next morning fish out and got on a plane and went home so meltzer would report the observer around this time that you guys were leaving and he says that he hasn't been threateningly for five or six weeks in quote at one point point. They in another wrestler gave word that they were through unless dusty. Rhodes was replaced. However Jim Crockett failed to replace Rhodes as booker but the wrestlers didn't follow through the threat to leave until now i. I hadn't heard this before until did Murray search for the show. Is that true. Did you guys give Crockett and ultimatum that have industies out. If dusty is in your out I was never part of that conversation. I was part of the conversation with Rick Myself entirely and it started out the three of us were going to leave. That's how it started started because Ricky Vanu them watering us down and doing the things that they were doing was going to affect the company Sir now all I can do is speculate but when the three of us sat down in front of Jimmy Crockett dead serious. Some things had to change well rick. I'm sure had another separate sidebar conversation version you know and whether or not he said hey you got to have a book change or whatever. I would have never been uncomfortable being part of that conversation because you don't look at one of your bosses and say you the fire mother boss Josh or I'm gone just would never enter my mind you could do that or should do that and I'm pretty sure you shouldn't and again a lot of the things whether or not does she made all the right decisions or some of the wrong decisions who will never you know time will tell the fact Tis. Jimmy Crockett could've made me whole just by giving me the other half of my pay per view money making sure I was figured in on the first round of guaranteed contracts when he cut his deal with Turner. Hey if you're going to buy the company I'd like for you to take care of Arn. Anderson and Tully blanchard Richard Roth the Gecko because these guys have been nothing but valuable and they'll continue to be nothing but valuable that would have made me whole with Jimmy Crockett dusty in the whole company and on stayed with them until hell or high water but none of that happened so we gave him a chance again. This was a precursor to Jimmy's conversation after the match in in Houston. This is a right. We're not being done right and Jimmy in the long run. It's going going to hurt your company. 'cause you know what value we bring. That's the conversation that we had. It was still positive. It was still upbeat. I think thank Rick probably had a I don't know if he thought we were bluffing as well but I don't. I don't bluff. I keep my mouth shut. I told the line on but when it's time and I say hey that's it then. That's it because of barking didn't get anywhere. All it does is ruin your credibility and I don't get who dat shit what company you're talking about or what scenario barking then get anywhere. You got one chance to say hey this is wrong fix it Aratu here and so as it turned that one got time to go. I think rick right up until the very end I think he thought we were. GonNa come walking in you know TV the next day in go. Hey let's talk about this. It is pretty fun to think about and I can't wait for us to talk about another time but it's not too terribly long and Rick is going to have serious conversations. I mean Richard says that they thought they had rick at summer. Slam eighty-eight which would have been a month prior to this so clearly there was some interest but what if he would have moved in time for Summer Slam eighty-eight what if aren't entirely what a jump the following wanted September. It's not gonNA be too long and Berry wyndhams going to be in the promotion as is JJ AJ Dylan you could have had the four horsemen in the WWF under a different set of circumstances and it might not have taken a whole lot to make it happen so that's fantasy booking for another tom but something else. I want to ask you about here. In The Observer meltzer would right Anderson was making a public appearance for the interview a television syndication convention and McMahon was at the same convention. The two disappeared together over lunch for several hours from all reports. The two had a very amicable meeting and Titan had been interested in Anderson. Since that point now earlier you are SORTA got the indication that that was the first time you've met. Vince did you have lunch with Vance at some TV conference early eighty eight. I don't know where that came from and I don't know who believes Vince McMahon could sit still for two hours number one number two to I don't eat lunch. It makes me lazy so that never happened. I don't know where that came from. It's it's interesting but not factual they've also wrote there are probably several reasons while the payer left such a key spot with the NWEA for what easily could be future middle of the card performer with Titan particularly not getting the balloon payments that were due to them in May and the uncertainty about the future of the NWEA which is presently in financial disarray. There's no word on whether other wrestlers will follow the Pierce lead unlike other recent losses like the powers of pain this loss definitely is a major one for the end of Ua not only because blanchard awesome had been headliners as tag team champions for most of the past year but also because it destroys the four horsemen gimmick without getting any mileage out of their future break-up feud. You'd a lot to unpack here. I guess the biggest question though is creatively. Are you glad you didn't give long enough notice for them to do some sort of breakup breakup of the horsemen because had they done that. It may have prevented you from doing it. In the future you know now if we would have done if we would have done the break-up of the horsemen. I can only speculate that one of the few things could have happened. The audience would have spit it out because they didn't want to see it. It could have failed from that perspective. You know it's like brothers. Nobody really he wants to see brothers. beat the piss out of each other. You know Hardie Boys Steiner's. You name it anytime they've done. Angle brother against brother had didn't have have the cachet or panache that everyone thought it would be because I don't think anybody believes you're really going to hurt your brother. That's one way I would suggest that if you did have a spat between the horsemen if it went another way would be it would just be so interesting and and so entertaining that the company would have been on fire again and they would have never sold the company and it would have been all over again. I just sold out houses and you name it so it could it could win either way. One thing I do know is in those days days. If you did work a notice they normally would beat you all the way out but then again with us they had already beaten. US quite a bit so I don't know what they would accomplish by doing that but it might have tarnished. You know what we had accomplished looking back. Now you know Rick. has been pretty vocal about this. He admits he resigned without knowing that he had leverage in that. Turner has said they wouldn't have bought the promotion without ric flair being under contract so in theory rookie record made much more money than actually did because Crockett needed needed him in order to secure that deal the Turner. Do you think perhaps you could leverage that same relationship and the horsemen label and gotten a bigger guaranteed contract track from Turner that maybe Crockett never gave you had you hung around a little bit. Well imagine what would have happened if somebody would have took the initiative initiative on our behalf and said okay you know if you want to buy the company you know. I need you to take care of flair. Anderson and Blanchard Blanchard I there there the nucleus of your product before we go any further and why someone didn't have that confidence outfits and US or have that frame of mind where we were concerned after all we had given the company and I think if you look back at the numbers and and the position we were in and all the things that had happened good for Jim Crockett promotions oppress three years. I think we were as responsible. Possible is anybody that they had worked form. So you know why somebody didn't step up and do that. I'll never know it would have been in their own best. Interest in God knows how much prosperity they would have. You know gotten by just taking a stand where we were concerned. You know a generation later. Maybe maybe just a decade later guys in your position who have the tag belts and have the ability to leave if feels like they could have drawn a line in the sand themselves offs and said Hey. I need to know what my contract Turner is. GonNa look like and if it's not the right number then you're going to see these belts on wwl TV tomorrow in Hindsight site that ever cross your mind that maybe we should draw a line in the sand and managed new contract. Our wasn't just more of you know what we've had enough enough. I didn't know again. I've said this in the past and I really made it. I didn't know you could say no right Conrad. It never ever occurred to me and I was told and I was taught from a very early age. You're expected to go out every single night and give the very best performance you could possibly give and at the end of the night we're going to tally up the numbers on how many people were there and that's what you're going to get paid off of. I didn't know you could I'd say no. I didn't know you could not do something I just. I was always taught that. Go Out and do do whatever you have the ability to do do but do it every single night and I. I didn't know you could hold the company up. It would have never crossed my mind all these shears later. You don't want the benefit of hindsight now. You had to do it over again any regrets..

"He had you know all the accomplishments. Send really was complimentary and he asked us what we were gonNA. Make you know or what we've been making. Excuse me he said you know what are you guys been making and we told him any says walking. You know we don't have guaranteed contracts with my company. We have opportunity he said but I guarantee you guys will make more than you made did with Crockett so don't worry about that and we took him at his word and we agreed on a start date and we asked him what he wanted us to do about the world tag titles did did he wants to turn them in or he should know. What do you think you should do and I said well Bob Eaton and midnight express our friends of mine in in their business partners of mine and I'd like to do the right thing. I'd like to drop the titles to to bobby myself. Take the fall on me so you do what you think is right at Horn and that's we got back to Philly got down to the arena went in and we had a talk with dusty and told him that's what I'd like to do. He said fine. Let's pump the brakes out there for a minute owner clear by his meeting with Vance and Stanford by the pool. This is happening the morning of the Philadelphia. The Philadelphia shows at night right correct when you're meeting with with Vince by the pool and now you don't get any specifics about cash cash but does he give you any specifics about dates because in that era they were madman running shows two times a day sometimes in running to win three crews road warrior is a an understatement for what the schedule was back then is that discussed at all at that point well no he did not go go into it at all and to be honest with you. I said earlier that it was a huge consideration on me staying with Crockett because I had you know had come through the grapevine not only were they making huge money through their marketing and through the houses and all that they were also running three Townsend night and they're working in her ass off and we all knew that well for the first time in my life I had been insulted professionally. I felt like I had been used and abused. Believe it or not and you look Kennedy. Don't face value going out and having a four minute matchwood with Dr Death Steve Williams and getting and beat right in the middle of the rain should not be a big deal had the timing not been what it was in the issues not been what they were and the sovereign see if that's the correct word of the company B. and stake because let me tell you when Steve Williams beat me the roof roof. Do not come off the place. There was like a look of disbelief in the audience of why the hell did they do that right and and so I didn't think when I made that decision to go see vents the next day I did not even consider the number of days I would be working which was probably one of the bigger mistakes I made but had to trust my God on this situation and at that point in time I was just pissed and felt disrespected and I hadn't felt that if at all to that degree since I've been in the business and a fire if I had I didn't remember. When did you discuss creative with Vince at all did he say I've got some ideas in mind or what about this or what about that any sort of creative or this bobby Heenan even come up at that point? He did not come up. He just said I'd like to use those team. He said it's not broke. I'm I'm not gonNA mess with it and that was another concern that that had that he was in all he was really big into gimmicks characters and all that that he was going to try to put something all that we couldn't pull off. He said you guys don't worry about it. I'm GonNa leave you just as you are because it's not broke so you come back near you. Go go to Philadelphia gets to the building you until they've got to be on on cloud. Nine is the first person you do you give Jim Cornet or your buddy Bobby Eaton Sir or ric flair heads up or as the first person to tell dusty rhodes out of respect for dusty. went in and again remember. I didn't have the conversation with dusty the previous night about the state waves. I had it with Jimmy. Jimmy put all the heat on dusty. Yes whether whether or not was that that was true or not you know I don't know but went in and out of respect for dusty and everything he had done for for me the previous years three years whatever it had been a went and told them what we're doing you know and and I think he knew when you you pull tully blanchard off of a plane and have him flying commercial to towns you. GotTa know that something is going to be rumbling and there had to be in those days some repercussions whether it was going to be totally was going to get fired or we're going to move on that was the next step or there was going to be a pushback you but you had to the know something was coming. I doubt very seriously if dusty ever and his wildest dreams thought we would leave and it was based on that one event event you gotTa backup and remember eleven seven that number should stick in your head because that was the first time I was ever disrespected acted and lied to with no light at the end of the tunnel the other half of that pay off for some reason to this day as really nagged at me me and you couple that with just a random squash job. It wouldn't have mattered who my opponent it could have been dusty could have been anybody. It didn't matter purpose to do it at that. Time was just an Mama and said I can do anything you want and this is what we're doing just because you guys need to cool jets. That's the way I took it. So how's your conversation with dust again. uh-huh. I didn't agree with what happened last night. Don't WanNa get into it because it's already done. It'll be you know it'll be on television and I'm sure if not I don't even remember if it was dark or if it was on tv but it happened you know. The timing was terrible on it. So we'd like to turn are not shedding tonight. I'll be happy to do the job for bobby right in the middle and well dropped the titles to them. Tonight will be our last night and he just got this really really blank. Look on his face and we left. We left his his office and we didn't see him again. Real the rest of the night now we kind of went toe bobby and those guys and we toll Rick Rick didn't believe us. He thought we're going to be at TV. The next day he did not believe it but I would not take anything that serious that affected as many many people as it was going to affect my family tallish family the crew are opponents the the ownership the booker a lot of people this was going to affect and I don't think people really understood how much it would affect the the company but I knew because I had confidence in us and I knew what we represented and that's what I based my value on. We can awake out you know. The things that I saw that we could make happen within the confines of of the parameters where we're given so wasn't a decision I made lightly but I had a responsibility to myself her to draw a line in the sand and that was it when you you told me about the conversation with dusty. DC Jimmy David at all aw in Philadelphia. Do you have any conversation within their now. is there any attempt you know. This is the game of telephone telegram. Tele Wrestler bler the boys in the locker new. This is your last night in and you're going to the WWF. Does anybody else start to feel like helped me. Get One of those life rafts from New York as is anybody else asking put in a good word fence. There was an eerie there was an eerie silence. Every time we walk by somebody whether it be to go get a cup of coffee out in the hall we went and found a locker room that we could be secluded just the two of us but every time we walked out in the hall either you know get a cup of coffee or whatever there's this eerie silence like someone had died and. I don't know if the guys were just smart enough to know as well what what our departure was gonNA main. I know a lot lot of them. Were thrilled because it opened up to top. He'll spots rot away and I don't blame them if they didn't feel that way if they didn't smell the blood and water erin go. I want that spot and I don't know what they're doing into business but you could. There was an eerie silence and nobody was really look. Send the is it just I think they knew at least you know no matter what you thought about Tully Blanchard when he puts his out of saying after the occurrences as of late that he minute and may back in him up. I'd never lied to anybody. You know my my guys that I worked with the guys I worked for. Never lied to him. I told him the truth a lot of times when they didn't WanNa hear the truth but I'd Never Lotto talk show that knew they knew a legitimate deal and there was just an eerie eerie silence. Let's talk about the match which Tim Tam Nineteen Eighty eight six thousand five hundred and thirty two fans there including a very young Steve Carino and Stevie Richards and attendance of I think all kids are only a dollar for that show it winds up being you and tallies last match in the end of UA was originally advertised as two out of three falls the midnights or coming in as the US tag champs you guys are the world champs so they're the only team to hold both of those titles at the same point at that point at that time and this being your last match with the company or the promotion until late eighty nine and toys last match until ninety four of course the Alabama the finish the top rope leg drop is the the finish here the Alabama jam from Bobby Eaton and he gets the pen on on you and at the same time Tony's giving stan the slingshot sue the slingshot suplex referee. Tommy Young is going to say that the legal legal pin is the one bobby made on you and the crowd goes bananas can see this on Youtube. I don't think it's actually on the network because it wasn't televised but somebody's it's not her camera on some ingenious fan in nineteen eighty-eight manage to sneak a camcorder in and filmed it from the crowd and man the crowd just goes bananas when the handbells to the midnights pretty good match. What did you think of the mass where you pleased with it. W- when the when the last hand comes down and you know what's over. Are you happy relieved leave. What's what's the emotion you feel. After this incredible run you had with Jim Crockett and you know it's done. I don't know I don't remember any of it. I was so emotional because I knew what we're just done and I knew you know that whatever was ahead ahead of us was I don't even know how to put it was speculation speculation. What have I got myself into. Did I make the right decision. Yeah May Drought Decision Hell with them. So many things are going through my head. I don't remember the match I do remember. The reaction and I knew there was the question of who should be the good gas and who should be the bad guys. I think Philadelphia told you we made the right decision. As far as that goes and they will always tell you that's one thing I love about the audience they will tell you when you suck and bore. They'll tell you when you don't and you know just just thinking back had we not put our notice in that night and we would have had the double pin in abroad another ref down you'd had more controversy there thinking one on six months and I think it coulda built with with Jim. Cornet and JJ Dolan will a lot of the talking US filling in the blanks and may lean and on bobby lobby and making bobby victim and all this thing could have went on six months and it would have been on fire. Obviously we were just getting started. That's that's the one thing I do regret regret Godoi would done. I would love to have done that angle year earlier and played it out through its entirety. It would have been fascinating you can see where it would have wound up where in September here so two months later very easily could have been you know one of the main events or co main events or whatever whatever you WANNA call it for stockade as it is though it's that stockade tag team title match is going to be the road warriors taking eh constituting industy so it would have looked quite a bit different instead the midnight express working with the original midnight express with polly dangerously in their corner and of course the originals or dentist. Khanjian Randy rose but it was the second match on the card gotta think and aren't until you're there probably probably second from the top and Israel it should abandon. I'm curious. What's your what's your day..

"Promo Code on. It'll put a new slant on spine buster. Let's talk a little bit about The bunk cast impede for a minute flares sort of love hate relationship with us as well documented. He'd get frustrated with us. He's booking where the horsemen left laying every week and dusty was always getting the win and at the end of Bunk House stampede it's more of that with US coming out on top and Tony Shabani tells the story of getting into a limo with you guys after the show and you and totally are not happy specifically he remembers telly Kelly saying something along the lines of I think dusty Rhodes just book himself against himself so he can always go over in the main event. Were you frustrated straighted with not just the cash but the creative at this time as well. They were frustrated with dusty because I knew if I wrestle dusty. I was going going to be making a top pay off. You know I it was for me. It was never what in my mind I thought it should be if I was arousing dusty. I'M GONNA get a top payoff for that night so I didn't have those issues and again. You know totally an rig. They were in a a they were in a creative conflict in their head about what they felt like things should be and all that rick and and dusty were always trying to one up each other Iman. You've got to understand Conrad. I was still in a position and somewhat today when I see dusty Rhodes Rossy ric flair or icy Hulk Hogan. I see someone who's bigger than life and who transcended the business. During their era. I was star Struck. The first time I ever saw dusty Rhodes and the last time I saw him he was just a big star and my mind same thing with ric flair same thing with the all cogan these guys have transcended the business and I never over looked at things like he's not treating me. Ride or dusty is not taking care of me the right way as the booker should and all those nights. I never looked looked at that now. Did I get frustrated when I was having to work with guys that were making three times what I was sometimes aw but it wasn't I was mad at them. I got mad at the system sure that makes sense. I do want to ask about the creativity creativity as we head into eighty-eight because not only are our finances type but Davy Crockett had said that barley eight dusty creativity gone stale an am most of the storylines seem to come from John Wayne Movies and there's no denying that dusty was a genius and his contributions to Jim Crockett were invaluable from late eighty three on but is it fair to say that by eighty-eight some of the boys had lost confidence in his ability create much as David Crockett hat well well. I was only privy to talk to just a few guys I know there were some some decision within our group but we also even till the very end till the last today and we're we're out the door. Don't take this wrong long way but it's just a fact we were over right and when you're going out every night and it doesn't matter that there's only eight thousand five one hundred people in in the arena and last time there was ninety five hundred you got eighty. Five hundred people stand for twenty five minutes thirty minutes and cheer and everything you do. You're a success and what you're doing is still working. Forget about the outcome of the match. I don't know that I ever want to match. I can't remember what in one but anyway when it was all said and done when you've got eighty five hundred people standing up giving you the four Sherman mm-hmm and signed up and the four horsemen signed down but every one of them are screaming. You had a successful night and even to the very end when Jim Crockett promotions was the finances and all that stuff that had nothing to do with the people in the arena right our our audience loved product are fans is loved what we brought to the table versus what. WWF brought to the table and that was the war we were in that was about a were fighting. That was my mindset and you know. I never had a paycheck to taint. I never had one that bounced. never had one that. I looked looked at when Jesus Christ that sucks could it have been better. I had a you know we'll wait a minute now wasn't there were so many people when their ten in two thousand people there that could have been a little better. It was still more than I dreamed I would ever make and that's that's where my mindset has always been the business. Let's talk a little bit about this version of the four horsemen in eighty seven as far as onscreen goes after lex. Luger was kicked out of the horsemen winds up being Barry Windham who turns on legs and take the fourth spot before we talk about Berry. What do you think LEX horsemen I think lex probably was learning the business. He didn't realize what was being done for him or maybe he did but I'm not sure that he did lax's mindset. was you know he was the best self promoter of any and I think anybody that knows him. We'll agree. He's the best self promoter in the history of the business he could walk in you know all old up with that body and convince you that you just made the best purchase that you could have possibly made on this or any other universe by having him standing there in front of you and stop that was at the horsemen mentality the reason in a lot of people. Don't get this but if it's it's absolutely true the reason the horsemen were so successful for so long and even today people are still talking about it and I think we get more credit now than we ever have for. Whatever reason people are going back looking at you know the network or they're looking at Youtube or whatever it is. They're seeing just how hard we worked. Every every single night to give are paying customer the best possible show that we could give no matter what else they saw that night what the other matches were for we would go out and try to outdo each other. We're we're trying to outshine the good guys we were trying to outshine outshine each other and getting our ass kicked more creatively more profoundly and more consistently than anybody anybody else in the business and when it's all said and done have an audience of people standing on their feet cheering or booing us totally wiped out from the experience that's what the horsemen mentality was and. I don't think lex Luger ever understood that most people never understood added. That's the way it was when you guys wound up leaving the promotion horsemen consists of flair arn totally. Barry JJ AJ. What did you think of that version of the horsemen? I gotta say it's it's probably my favorite well. It's from a performance standpoint and the audience goes and our opponents limits. That was definitely the best group in people. Ask me all the time I loved. Having only is grumpy as he is. I loved having only because I personally thought auty brought credibility to our group. I learned a lot from him. I was on all of them. I was intimidated by them know if he was my partner and I was intimidated timid buying the guys across the rain had to be as well but I think from a performance standpoint and being more flexible about what we could offer the company and all for our opponents berry was the best choice and did a great job as a horseman of course varies work in singles matches while you until they continue dominate the tag division through eight I don't know that this gets talked about enough. How good was Barry Windham from say eighty six to eighty eight. I think you could argue. He was one one of the best wrestlers in the world. Oh my God of course he was Barry. Windham never went to the gym Dan his life. He's six foot six two hundred sixty eighty pounds and burying moved like a Gazelle not only was his head in the right place every night. His performance was right on point no matter who he was with buries a guy that really doesn't get the kind of credit that he should because he could go out there he could sue perplex animal more often top rope or he could run a dropdown leapfrog spot and smoothies. Brad Armstrong. He was just that good and Berry knew the business snus and he knew what to bring to a match. He knew how to build a match. He knew how to build an opponent and what's all said and done. He knew how to get himself over over as well bear. Wyndham was at all around cowboy. It's all I can tell you around the beginning of August handed it this earlier you entirely start an angle with the midnight express and their manager Jim Cornet and this is pretty unique at the time because in this era we didn't often see good versus good guy or bad guy versus bad guy any promotion really and at this time of course both year teams are heels the midnight express are also the US tag team. Champs and you guys were the world tag chance. This is unusual what led to to heel tag teams both with gold being in a bit of a feud with each other well. I'm not sure whose idea was was but you know at this point in time. I'm sure the the brain trust we're scrambling for what's new what hasn't been done on what can we put out there that would be new and fresh and and I think bobby and my relationship was a big selling point of that feud because we literally did live one street apart. We were best friends and I think Jim Cornet had such a talent for building feuds and building issues just an in an overall smart ass. He just really was good and you take. Jj Dolan who was on the flip side of that coin and he was indignant Agnete and he was elitist and he was had the horsemen to to have bragging rights over and and all those things that that just it just just came together as the perfect storm and in those days you're right you didn't have to heal teams battling it out because if if they truly you know looked at it they were just go well. I hate all four of those guys. Let them kill each other who gives a shit notoriously horsely. You have to have a good guy and a bad guy. Good versus evil has been the crux of our business. I think it should be more so today. You know we've gotten into that gray area well grey areas okay. you know either like black are like white grey to me is just what it is grey dull. I don't understand you know there's nothing special about being gray but I think in this scenario with bobby and and my relationship and cornet being able to banner back and forth Jj and Tolan ibn able to to do what we do on the microphone it just built into something that hey this is gonna you know they're all champions one of the US tag champions one of the world acting champions this has got some legs and boy did it Jim Cornell said that he and telly would go back and forth about who was going to be the heels and Jim said the dusty decided sided paint the midnights and Jim in the baby face role with how he orchestrated the angle and Jim said that dusty fell he needed to keep you and totally as the top heels for his promotion and he said during the six to eight weeks where you guys were doing this angle. You all made tremendous money during it a said the matches drew and the gates were incredible. Will they said his one regret in his interview ruin that he didn't have six months with you. Guys as opposed to six weeks said that short time it was already drawing more money their feud with the rock and roll express which was the new record at the time. Everybody talked about how legendary those matches were but how credible the gates were. We're with midnights on one side rock and roll and the other but Jim believes that you guys had more time here at aren't entirely versus. The midnights would have been even bigger. Let's say you I agree with Jim. Corn at one hundred percent which again you know as we're talking Conrad Dan I'm just I'm reliving stuff that I skipped and my business had should have covered and should have thought about and maybe should have stood up a little more about you know how I felt but at the time again in Charlotte for example they adjust opened opened the new Hornets arena and we actually it was rick flair against Lex Luger and then it was the midnight and against totally an arm and I want to say in that inaugural event in that building. We did fifteen thousand people with a double main event. That angle was on fire. It was just another example of a wish I would have stepped outside of myself and went okay. let me look at our. Anderson and totally Blanchard and the midnight express from a different perspective. Let me be on the outside looking.

"Stark eighty seven. Vince responds is by creating the survivor series pay per view go head to head to be clear survivor series didn't exist beforehand. It was created to compete with Stark eighty-seven Crockett rocket realizes this is a no win proposition go head to head with Vance. He moves his start. Tom Afternoon start so originally started eighty. Seven was a night show but because now survivor for serious wanted to go head to head they moved into an afternoon show and that's not good enough for Vince he gives the cable companies a bit of an ultimatum and he tells them I can't hear you both shows they've got to pick between the WWF which was now proven success on the heels of wrestlemania three or this new unproven regional event call all stargate when Crockett decides to run a second big pay per view the following January this time it's in Vinci's yard which feels strategic it feels was lucky as a response from what happened before we're running a show on pay per view in New York now and we're going to call it. The BUNK CAST impedes events tries to put together another another pay-per-view power play with the cable companies but they will have at this time so his solution is to hurt his competitors who are dabbling in his pay-per-view background sound or playground rather. Let's create the Royal Rumble. Let's give it away on free. TV So the royal rumble was created simply to hurt the bunk cast stampede and it was given away for free on the USA network and it happens of course on January twenty four th nine hundred eighty eight the same day as the bunk Hasta Impede Long Island in a twenty man over the top rope battle royal. You're GonNa last twenty two minutes and thirty seven seconds there and you're going to address this shoot interview years ago. You're only shoot interview that I know of you said we had done a pay per view from Long Island earlier and he made us promise on a payoff that didn't income through now of course Vince giving away the rumble that had hurt the pay per view and the Bunk House show only sold six thousand tickets so that's not exactly gangbusters muster business and it's disappointing payoff because it's exactly half but it feels like it might be exactly half because Vance is just you know he's a he's playing chess and maybe the Crockett's are playing checkers. What do you think about well. It's a cutthroat business and again again I don't I don't begin to understand it and when you know we just keep getting told hey don't worry about what the the house was worried about. What the pay review Bahrain was which is a it's a figure that's out in the universe floating around that whatever the boss tells you it is that's that's what it is. You don't know how you going to document that right so so you know I was a guy that when my boss told me something I didn't in have a reason to not believe him until there was a reason to not believe them and I was hanging on was we were at war and I was one of the soldiers that was hand picked to be on the front lines with Jim Crockett promotions and I took that very seriously and we wanted to win the war we wanted to you. I guess not only succeed but prevail and I was still in the fight. I was still on the side of Jim Crockett promotions but I was still getting these occasional messages. Hey man what you come up here. We're doing we're making money. Everybody's Saudis happy and all a lot of money be made up here. You might want to consider it so there's a lot going on my head. You know going through my head at the time Tom who sending messages at the time bear Dr Sue okay one half of one have demolition and he was very well respected affected by Vance and his company and I think I guess he put out some feelers just on his own because burying our best friends at that particular the time it was his as much a personal thing as it was a business thing. Let's talk about Moncus stampede in that pay off. You got so you said that it was in a roughly half of what you were expecting. I in my research. I read that you gotTA disappointing payoff in May and I've I've heard that sometimes the pay-per-view paydays were always slow because you've got a process onto the cable companies and the money just comes ninety days later. Sometimes a little more is that is that the online you have the show at the end of January and it's probably maybe before you actually get the payoff and you realize well shit this half yeah because you know again. I was hanging on to that. That was the first time that Jim Crockett. Had you know Jimmy. Crockett was a different man he he not a lot of people really knew em- personally. I think recap special relationship obviously does he did they had very special relationships ships rather but other than those two guys. I'm not sure maybe Jj but you know the regular soldiers did not have a personal relationship with Jimmy Crockett to my knowledge and when the man told me you know now today's you're going to have twenty five grand sitting there. You know that's that's a lot of money at my house and it's always been a lot of money at my house so we're we're sitting there rotting it out for the ninety days like I said we're we're at war. We were doing all the things from Amari in you know to win the war and then it gets Tom. I look that check expecting to see twenty five grand for a nights work. That's that's huge and say eleven seven so then I talked to go to Jimmy and I talked to him and he says well we were were fighting for our lives on you know we're trying to do the best we can for the talent and for the company and trying to keep our head above water it was. I one of those conversations nations out ever had with Jimmy about money. I'd never talked to Jim Crockett about money because I was very happy with what I was making the most money I've ever made in my career in my my life. I never dreamed I could make that much money. So we had that conversation he again. He gave me his word. I'M GONNA make it up to you. You will get your money. Trust me well famous last words still waiting on the check. When did you first hear that guys like Lex lex Luger and the road warriors the midnight express or all not only getting bigger checks but guaranteed contracts because I know that you know all of those guys have been very public about the fact that they had guaranteed contracts and it doesn't sound like even totally at this point had one well. No no I think if the if the time line is correct lex Luger came into the company with a contract right which was the way prior to all of this going down in a roundabout way inadvertently. Everyone of us has enjoyed a contract and the rest of the industry guaranteed money. I guess to Lex Luger and the road warriors because when Luger came in he was put on a very nice contract not my place to say what it was but we heard some rumors rumors and it was about two and a half times white Talia now we're making obviously the road warriors who were a the hottest ticket in town found out about that they negotiated deal with Jim Crockett get which was more than what Luger had substantially had a very nice package eight times three years so so now those guys are getting huge guaranteed money and we're still getting paid off the house and I would dare say without got any hesitation that without the four horseman it wouldn't have mattered what Lugar in the road were doing. That wouldn't been nearly as much. I I won't say a lot of success but nearly as much success as what they had with the four horsemen package being plugged into the house shows every night and on television like we should mention that tully blanchard has said exactly what you've said many times that you know for whatever ever reason the road warriors could go run a show and and there would be some folks there but it might not be a sell out but when road warriors were wrestling or an totally it was darn sure a sellout and hey took issue. I think that especially with a guy like lex Luger who's really still learning earnings craft. You guys are the ones out there doing the heavy lifting mechanism look good. He comes in with a guaranteed contract for multiple of what you've got and in reality you're the secret sauce in the ring and it feels like everybody at that point knows it except Crockett is that fair to say look back on and and retrospective tweet looks to me now otherwise why wouldn't he fixed it when he had the chance. Did you ever voice your frustrations about this about you. Know putting over the road warriors or Lex Luger Goss who most would agree weren't aren't quite the in ring talent that you entirely were at a fraction of the money did you did you express any of that dusty. I know you said you didn't Jimmy but what about David Crockett or dusty Rhodes or ric flair well I have. I have never worried about what anybody else makes. I I never asked anybody else makes it's not my business. I found out about it through the grapevine and to be honest with the road warriors were over a wounded to be rustling the road warriors because I knew we were going to fill up the house to capacity. I had confidence in them and then confidence in us. Luger came in. I don't blame lex forgetting a guaranteed contract whether that was presented to him as an incentive to come or whether he he asked for it. I I don't know what the real story is about that but I don't hold it against him. Everybody's GonNa make or should try to make every three down that they can in this business because careers are cut short injuries happen. A lot of things can happen. Companies go out of business.
