"Voice grey's anatomy this is us I mean so many of my binge ables favorites and Hulu has them all but as much as I wanNA watch like so I know you're cooking and Alcohol Twenty my mom high school days okay that's what my mom was really mad if I was on that many might have in order for you to share that's where I know you're probably sick but let's backtrack and because I feel like the fall and then the rebuilds is probably the most interesting part about a lot of people can relate to that myself so I would love for you to maybe bring it back and share I think money plays a key role in my mind is because I grew up with six kids in a single moms extraordinary woman who raised us working two jobs all I wanted to do is from five years old when my dad laugh was rich to buy my mom a house a car and retire yeah I was GonNa make it five in one thousand nine seven three I was gonna make a million dollars Imbibe Hammer House and retire and through that I focused every day of my life to be first professional football player than it was Dr Than it was a lawyer graduating law school I went into the Internet instead of the law against your mom's famous lesson right just he doesn't mean they give you good advice but moreover I really thought money bought happiness because the only time I wasn't happy was when my mom was crying about money wasn't he nothing to do with me I didn't need money but then I got it and I thought it bought happiness and I went down a really bad road of self entitling you know my existence and I bought things more things different things surround myself with really bad ideas and bad people and ended up continuing making money to the point where I lost over one hundred million dollars saint even have them we're still ways when I saw him lights yeah it's still not real to me except for the fact that I learned so much like I'm so grateful because of really three incidents I think it's important understand that everything evolves the weird thing about me unlike most people who lost everything is I was on my transformational journey two years before I lost everything so it wasn't like I lost everything then found something I found something before I lost everything it was just when you had that much money all the bad causes all the dumb pins can create time in it was almost like I was prepared for any time I started losing everything but I had warnings at thirty years old my dad told me I was just like him gave me a jacket with no pockets for my birthday even though he told me he didn't believe in birthdays when I was ten in forgot my birthday so I hated my father so I didn't listen to it but he gave me a jacket the hanging closet so I won't be the richest man in the cemetery it stuck there and I thought it was a joke like I was literally like for happened to me I care so much about people I didn't realize that I gave so much money away not because I was trying to help the people like I do today is literally so I could get my name on the buildings are the awards or I was a philanthropist of trading I was trading my money for Eagle I'm honest about it award winner thank you yes money can buy and I'm Dave Meltzer too young and the Sea of sports marketing I mean you have like fifty two and I was looking to Mike do I just introduce them Dave Meltzer or my like Co sports marketing which is one of the world's leading sports team marketing agencies you're like literally a real life acquire a fourth one was of the firm Lee Steinberg's which is based on yeah and before that I was in does your Samsung crazy I'm like forrest Gump of the forrest Gump of business the run David my God when I lose money somehow policy do like roses the second morning give myself ah add the second came from my best friend and this one made me cry I had by friend I S I knew my wife in the fourth grade now sixth grade Camp Astor pills like adding his wife known each other since they were so young too weird I love that guy in so I adore her in I had my best friend in the world at sixth grade camp ask her to go steady with me he said no tell him to ask me himself so I got smart is awesome I told you I don't know how the her through a gutter and get her in the head she had Rosanna Danny hair would like there was no product back then excuse my language it's GonNa hate me for saying this but was like pubic hair and so I made fun of her I made fun of and like literally made fun of her and loved her and her cousin was my good friend tonight try to you know hey can I ask do you hate you anyway through an ad get her to be a man and ask her yourself into rock center how it was awful later on in life once again he's worked out it worked really well and this best friend of mine outwith he literally told me is that how come you know hang out with me I don't like who you hang out with and I told him yeah but I'm not doing what those other guys are doing you know and he's like Dave you can lie to me but don't let yourself and that one was like two days later my wife told me she wasn't happy she's GonNa leave me I got out John the Grammy Awards and got really messed up like her and I I the next day I woke up angry ready to get divorced `blame-shame as an I literally was so depressed I something came over me and said hold on a second my dad my best friend Amer wife there all right I'm GonNa Hassle and I went and listened to my wife and that was two years before I lost everything I went back literally outlined took stock in who I was and what I wanted to become an all of these philosophies and great things that have evolved over the last eleven years came from that one day I spent one day depressed after I apologize for forgiveness this try getting choked up I literally sound stupid I was lying in bed going man how did I do this now this is before lost everything right wasn't about the money it was how have I screwed up is sh total shame of myself because I I was midas right and it was like I can't believe I have three beautiful children I had this beautiful wife House a car Ferrari like anywhere unhappy unrealized money does not buy happiness yeah it can solve some problems but it doesn't necessarily to actually money when you're using it in the right ways the right so this is a great I mean it's probably fits into what people understand I believe he's still the most important energy of this abrasion it's it's an energy that you put into the oh it allows you to shop you still have to shop for the right things yeah if you shop for the right things you can be super happy security family education you know I bought two community centers in Africa I've never been happier in my life like those are the things that I shop for now not motorhomes and boats and planes and things like that got it with my faith I go shopping too so my faith is voting is the aggregate of what they do and believe my unconscious competency personality traits actresses recessions in addictions I put my faith in what I want and I think one of the things I see special younger people when three teenage daughters is everyone's putting faith in their own stuff they're voting for the wrong things we got to change the way we gotta be confident say thank you for the advice thank you for the situation or knowledge or the sample but I'm going to vote for what I want I don't WanNa be a copy I wanna be myself and it's okay 'cause people will laugh chuckle and make fun of you before the applaud you help me God that's so I'm going to reality show that's all I don't even think applauded do and you put faith in what you want right and that's what I think people need to do more of and that's what I was able to do I was always voting for what everybody else wanted for me and the most successful is when I decided not to be a real lawyer into work in the Internet that's when I decided to start and bleed the smartphone would someday work you know it was when I decided to go ahead and in switch professions and get into sports even though I came from technology like all the things and then write my first book I even speaking I remember going to the Super Bowl no no more than three years ago three superbowls ago and one of my big sponsor clients made fun of me when I got to Radio Rogo and hey where are you speaking the bathroom you know it's stuck in my mind because it hurt my feelings at forty eight years old and now you know I speak around the world and I think to myself what if I would put faith into that because I I did I almost said what are you doing when I got back to the hotel room why why do you think you can motivate people or speaker inspire change lives and I just came back from the nets achiever convention downtown and it was like Oh my God people really like they're like thank you so much for your videos yeah right I changed lies with them and you know it's hopefully resonating hopefully it's positive I don't sell anything all I do try to inspire people with good ideas one of the things that you said when I I did come to sports reckoning listened to you speak and you were so gracious to let me come and said I'm not an intern I don't work there but I did reach out to you and I said you know what I'm at a point in my life this was maybe AGO where I was setting my career I've been doing real estate for about ten years but something inside me was not happy and you something was missing and I love tearing your motto make lots of money a lot of find help a lot of people on I'm like you know what we'll Sheena knows I've had a Lotta Fun yes we've literally we did it hostels and four weekends I on the side a little bit but where I was out last year I just knew something was missing and it clicked when I heard you say that 'cause I was like you know what I'm not helping enough people and since you coming into my life I just have to thank you because I've really gone after my my real passions animal rights veganism helping the disabled and that has brought a light into my life and a passion I never had before and no matter what business career I would be doing I like I like the entrepreneurial stuff but there was always that aspect the charity aspect missing and you're really big on that too when I love that atten something that that I heard you say was when you were working with Lee Lee Steinberg his his thing was that I will not work with anyone unless they have some sort of foundation the charity component and that also kind of vets the person into your life because if they are against doing that maybe that's not someone you really WanNa work with anyway and I think in a sense is get down to the simplistic it's when we are productive and we provide value to service to other people it creates avoid and where the realtor condition occurs is in you're going through transformation yourself right now that you see the shift in the paradigm of value that I'm going to start by looking at how I can help people now the real article humility comes into asking to fill the void with what you want for some reason on the human nature the Eagle doesn't feel like it's humble two one fill that void for example my motto make a lot of money help a lot of people have a lot of fun it's a lot of money so I can help a lot of people so me Yes sir a certain level of whether it's famer financial whatever it is in my career just to have that for my family I take care of my whole fam my dad's very hard worker but my mom works for me and that was like my goal was just to be able to once the show started taking off on a reality show we don't need to get it once I started making money I don't yeah I bought a new car and like you know you go shopping a little bit and things like that but I've always been very smart with my money I have my step Vira 401k all of that I have money.

"Would i really sensed i was kind of a funny thing that they didn't like that information in the united states i mean interesting magazine i'm sure they wouldn't care but this isn't like a daily newspaper where the executives that they dealt with who thought that vince mcmahon invented wrestling which obviously didn't and nobody's ever been able to you know eighty four when they first got big and it was like they now sell out madison square garden i'm going they sell don't mess run into thirties his father soda madison square garden more than vince and but you know the way the revisionist history history yeah yeah yeah so i think they were find that the wrestling fans the super hardcore fans which were very small number knew that when it was executives of these companies archer they that that was always like funny stuff when we'd be something like that when they would call me up and try to rationalize why you shouldn't be writing about this stuff was always like there's always funny stuff would and so what's what's your your relationship with vince now is there one i'm i mean i probably talked to him in a couple of years but i mean as far as with the company i mean i email them for questions every day every couple days you know sometimes multi day and as a journalist obviously you never reveal your sources but do you have people in there they doing it both publicly or are they doing it kinda like don't say anything about this both both both but some of its directly you know some of its directly authorized by bins for paul avec really oh oh you you will won't of course the pr people and they know they know the questions i'm asking and everything like that so and then sometimes you know it's obviously stuff you know whether it's the boys or other people trying to get information because you know sometimes pretty often actually you know we've i'm going to ask a question you know pretty high percentage of the time i'm not going to get an answer i gotta get the answer son how right right and they won't you know and they won't let me know about angles coming up or anything like that not that that's like that big of a deal to know angles or match just because i don't really care than wrestlemainia time you try to seed come in and everything like that then it's a big deal but it's i it's it's interesting to me how are you almost like an enemy amongst the boys at a certain point in time and i will always say like it's like reading variety magazine if you're in in hollywood or reading billboard magazine if you're you know a musician it's it's great that you exist because you're getting i can get more information from dave on how many tickets are sold or what's going on it's not like you because a lot of people would be like why you're going read your review of your match i know myself match is good or not i don't need dave meltzer evince or anybody to tell me but for this other information i didn't know any of it and now so there's there's where you can go see masters regard and sold thirteen thousand tickets for this amount of whatever and i thought it was a very valuable tool to to to to read your your your your newsletter and i always thought like i guess you know it's funny i never thought about like this but when i was a kid the wrestling you know at the cow palace everything is it was pretty hot you know i mean eight hundred thousand people and they got like two or three graphs in the newspaper almost nothing and i always thought god there's all these people at this thing there's may people the basketball games in the tv ratings were as good but they get no coverage and i always thought it was on my mind originally my original brainchild of of this was the importance of an event and of course it's completely changed now because the world has changed but this is nineteen seventies brain going the importance of an event is how many people buy tickets and.

"Four and a half million pay per view buys it was the second biggest bite maybe the first in history and everybody made a ton of money and that's the name of the game in the in you know it wouldn't have mattered remember remember mike tyson years ago he would knock somebody like in thirty seconds everybody so angry about it but like doesn't even matter what happens in the match is drawing the people there to the match and even to this day guys worked so hard which is great but as long remember the old times ago i got your money yeah cares now wants the people come in and whatever happens happens but as long as it draws that's the most important thing for sure yeah yeah iowa and that's you know promotion angles and interviews and that's why i always think that like these guys you know were so hard on the physical aspect of professional wrestling right now but it's like the talking is just in many ways is more important the always for me yeah yeah yeah yeah and also just the whole you know the the presentation and the look and every you know like the whole thing of looking like a star and being a star as opposed to just jumping up and down doing a million things which is call you know especially on an independent level that's it gets you noticed but i mean there's a difference between that and being a big star to me it's like it's like the whole key is is like the larger than life big stars that's what that's what carries the business slim ask this dave when you started the wrestling observer newsletter in nineteen eighty two i wonder what the reaction was like from the promoters before we get into that i got to tell you what i just found at mac weld and all right now it's not new underwear although they do make some of the best fitting and most come under where you can buy i actually got my new swim trunks at macworld and and not only are they super cool look in their blue camel pattern warm all week and turks and keiko's with my family looking real really cool and really fly my mac weld and board shorts they're also the most comfortable bathing suit i've ever owned and it didn't have to leave my house to get them either i just order them at mac weldon dot com and of course i use my own promo code jericho so i could save some money to all of macworld and stuff underwear socks shirts undershirts hoodies sweatpants board shorts who'd be the most comfortable clothing you could put on your body i like this stuff so much about another tshirt it's it was heather grave you want to know what color was this time not just normal great heather gray very stylish it's from the line of macworld and products that eliminates odors and does the moisture wyking as well so i don't have to worry about how how wet might be after working up a sweat riding my bike or if there's going to be any lingering odors i stay cool dry and a smell good in those mac weld and products the mac well and civilized t shirts is amazing that way both function and comfort say with no function and comfort hey function and comfort hey functioned and you get mack well and is so much more than just underwear and socks but if you're looking for something to try first and foremost get yourself a pair of macworld and underwear because if you don't like him you could keep them and still get your money back no questions asked but believe me you won't be returned in the man because mac weldon is all about customer service another reason why so much i'm really enjoying this new sensational of mac waldon's killer clothing all made from great premium fabric and all good for working out going to work going out whatever you got going on in life where mac weld and wherever you go be comfortable like me look sharp while you're doing it like me smell good like kindle by the baby's neither so comfortable and cool i've been wearing it every day and not just one i'm swimming on the beach having dinner whatever i'm not taking them.

"And he would get the stooge sheets as we call them but they was written like on a typewriter on green paper maybe it was photocopies at the he got them from guy called laurie who was the head of the wrestling commit box resting commissioning calgary or email laurie mills go yeah yeah mission he got them and then would give them to ed and then lance and i we found out about this like what is that oh it's like the stooge she like every week and we get it when you're done reading it then last than i would share it because we'd never seen anything like this before talking about like you mentioned all the different things that was so closed that was you know september of nineteen ninety at that point yeah so i had actually started in late late eighty two i guess was when the idea came and i think my first issue was an early eightythree but like i said from seventy one to about seventy seventy one to about seventy five i was doing the california wrestling report international wrestling because which was more newsletters and news a little bit behind the scenes i sort of figure things out but you know it was nothing like the observer with the observer i ended up you know a lot of people started talking to me berry early on kind of you know whatever and then i started kind of figuring things out and listening allot and i you know terry funk was one of the first guys i knew and he wouldn't tell me anything give me these riddles i mean this is really how i mean how i learned wrestling is he would say stuff that made no sense and then like months later even years later sometimes it's like i get it you know what i mean you have an example let me think about this yeah i mean i'm sure i probably have many of them okay the one that i remember most famous was starting to shoots in japan or worked shoots or whatever it was right yeah they're doing both you know but long before this came before there was a ufc or anything like that so i'm like looking at this stuff and i remember talking to terry funk and i'm going like i'm pretty good at figuring out like what's real and what's not here he just goes well i'm impressed and just goes and some day when you get really smart to the business you're going to realize that it doesn't matter only the thing that matters is is drew it doesn't matter if it's real or not it's the same thing as far as i'm concerned drew it was good and it didn't if drew it'd be true that was that's that's that's his thing and it was like that's ridiculous interim and then years later i realized it is all the same and that is you know that was kind of interesting yeah and that's why like when i cover when i we cover mma and people would go like you know why do they make these matches and it's like you know what i mean it's like if if you're running a company you know it's like punk fighting right you got all the hardcore fans this is horrible this is terrible and it's like but if it draws and right and it brings money in you know i mean that's that's the business sure whether it's any business boxing or anything it's all about you know i mean the mcgregor in mayweather i mean it was you know if you're serious boxing fan you knew what that was but it's like.

"So it's like newsletter when i was a kid so i am also i was by this point i'm already trading tapes vcr ages just started and i was one of the first guy years here's this this this is eighty k so i'm starting to get tapes from japan from wwf midatlantic and we've got the georgia on tv and awa we got on cv so but pretty soon i was getting pretty much almost everything i mean you couple years or two couples start getting stampede but most of the big ones i was getting so i started i'd write letters to people and there's kind of like got him spending so much time writing letters why not just do this newsletter and my friend said the same idea so just do a newsletter covering all this stuff and i did and you know it was just a hobby that took up incredible amount of time and then i guess an eighty six when i was just working fulltime job and doing this and i was just going out of my mind and it's like okay you got it use one or the other so i chose wrestling which like everyone i knew was like you are an idiot you know unless your job i was sportswriter oh hit got at a local newspaper and i was making tons more doing that than i was at wrestling and i go i'm kind of making a name in wrestling and also i think that there's some potential here and then the basically my lucky break a couple of breaks i mean it did start getting pretty popular and then my big break really was one day i'm at home and frank ford calls me he's and it's like to me that's like god was frank ford was like the best sports writer of the last sixty year okay so he was starting the national sports daily and and he called me and he just goes you know i wanted to accom on wrestling and a couple of people told me that that you're the guy yeah that that'd be great it's like so when i did that so i did that and at that point that's when the circulation really went up because i'm in this national newspaper national sports newspaper every week doing a column and they were advertising thing so from there everything went pretty smoothly was it hard to get information i mean obviously the answer is yes because then the visits it was very very closed how did you do it how did you get that info you just when you started doing it the people who started subscribing where people like me all these other cities who just kind of new people so you kind of started doing it and no since nobody else is doing it then i started getting like wrestlers that were subscribing and then really pretty quick i mean as far as you know i had you know pretty much every office i mean wf for what's crockett it'd graham you know we're all subscribing and then the wrestlers found out and i knew people and i started calling about gate info which the wrestlers loved in those days because you know the whole business yeah so built on a lie and i was getting gade info from the commissions and things so the rest of us called this is with they're really doing businesswise because you know every you know the communication wrestling was just so ridiculously is it's hard to explain you know this this is like an eighty five eighty six there was a rumor that buddy roberts died okay the free birds and he was wrestling in mid south at the time and i mean every night you know and people are just going here buddy ryan in the business buddy roberts died and they go buddy roberts didn't die you're a couple of years later they had the same thing with orndorff you know he at least disappeared he never died but he disappeared but buddy roberts never die and i'm telling people he's alive it was one of the first restaurants described the observer so i was getting checks from every couple of months but i mean it was like i'm just saying how primitive it wasn't you know a lot of people signed up and you know then then fans found out and i don't know how you duplicated it just things into place i remember the first time i saw was when i was training in calgary last storm and i went through the heart brothers camp and then stayed on afterwards and we kind of the guy who trained us ed langley and yeah.

"You know when your time in the seventies trying to find out wrestling especially inside which was almost impossible right you know is like something and now it's like your fingertips you can find out everyone just even like real names you know everyone was still private about their real names all right sure sure now it's like it's common knowledge in you know guys you know it's no big deal what your real name is was forty years ago oh my god they know him the son of a hockey player but that's even like when i wrote my first book which was two thousand seven that was all about stuff that happened in the first you know w it was all japan mexico germany there's no documentation of that as i progressed like the shawn michaels thing in my third book i just went online and looked it up and remembered everything but reading the first one there's none of that so i don't know what's true and what's not just my vegas memories for some of it was now you can go online and find i forgot about this the forgot about that it's all printed out there for you you're probably except for the fact that you would have the records like mexico step still unless it's like the the big shows there's really not a lot of records of the small shows in mexico right japan there's pretty much most everything now and anything of significance in the united states i mean there's indies that that you wouldn't get you know yes for sure yeah like i mean they pro they probably don't have because you start it you you worked really early in your career for what he farmer or would he former i was talking to one of my friends this morning about that and i go like when when did you chris chris jericho and i go like you won't believe this but he came to san francisco chris jar go working for woody farmer and may young was around then johnny may yes she he caused me to lose the match by pulling my foot you wanna hit the road some she shoot pulled my foot it was it was a bear area wrestling in ninety two summer of ninety two and i came here just to try and get something going on my dad's girlfriend now wife happened to live in the area also i did a taping and it was like in a little we little place but with woody farm yeah shane cody his son yeah but so you're talking about the new writing these newsletters at nine or ten how did you start doing the observer and how old were you when you started okay so i did those newsletters per couple years and then when i got in high school i just stopped but i still kinda followed it but are the wrestling here in the bay area went down and it was just it was kind of depressing you know what i mean like right to see that yes so so it's pat patterson left i think was really the key he was like the i mean he was the top guy and then him in roy shires had a big falling out and he left and went to florida and then you went to w apple awa and everywhere everywhere else and he rarely came back so the territory's kind of built around him in reese stevens stevens was long gone they had their falling out in seventy one so yeah it yeah was just it was just going down i wasn't that interested and then when georgia wrestling came on cable when he started getting cable i got really george had really hot wrestling at the time and you start dusty every week and ric flair and people like that so then i was back really hardcore into wrestling and when i was in college so there were on my newspaper class in college my newspaper staff there was there like three or four guys and they were all big wrestling fans and we all talked wrestling and andre and hogan awa and stuff like that was the local promotion requires ours was done by this point and we just talked all the time and then one of them just goes you know like you know all the stuff about wrestling is like i can't learn this stuff in the magazines it's like there's people all over the world that would love this kind of inside information which was primitive by today's standards but but.

"Addition that he is to those kickoff shows because it's such a refreshing change of direction not to say anything about anybody else i've done those shows with because everybody knows how much i love doing shows with booker t and rene in know tonga and everybody that i've done shows with but i only say this because pat mcafee brings something completely different and quite frankly something only pat mcafee could bring to those shows just as humor and his and his and his ridiculousness he can pull off wearing george and a top of a suit he kept calling it a george suit but i'm pretty sure it's just jordan and the top of a suit and some easies and showing up and then adam cole comes in and interrupts that thing and has some words for patent he's sitting there kissing ec three's asking calling me stupid and the whole thing it was just a fun thing to do and for me it was one of the most entertaining pre shows that i think i've been a part of i thought charlie was awesome i thought pat was awesome and i love going back and forth with pat it was interesting mo and the feedback that i got was overwhelmingly positive and i really like how many of you guys like that up you know like having pat myself there on those t pre shows because i really like being there with pat and i also think that the the dynamic pat and i have on those shows and charlie as well but that specifically the back and forth the patent i tend to have on those shows is unique to those shows meaning it gives annex t uneven more individualized feel which i think is just cool you don't pat comes from the nfl you know he kicked off a super bowl he's an athlete and he's got this amazing podcast with all these followers so he comes with this credibility on board and really adds to think plus he's a fan look he goes he actually knows what he's talking about you know you can you throw to him for a comment on something that's going on on the show and he has an opinion which is a great it's just great i i saw some higher profile tweets from dave meltzer dave meltzer said something to the effect of that was the largest that was i think it was even before takeover chicago in really got going during the first match or something and dave meltzer said that it was the biggest had to be the biggest gap in quality between a kickoff show and a main show ever i don't know if his expectations for annex t takeover chicago were very very low if they were shame on you dave meltzer i don't know where you're coming from but if they weren't in the implication there is that the takeover pre show was just the worst thing that wwe has ever produced i don't know what to tell you dave i don't know i'm not used to this this is what i'm used to you know i don't i don't i don't exactly we know what you're looking for but you know i guess i guess i'll ask i don't know the commentators at new japan if they can give me some tips on stuff and i'm interested to see what jr thinks because jr he tweeted out that he was watching i was i was mentioned in like he added me and pat mcafee in like the comments section of his photo or whatever however that works on twitter but he said that he was watching the kickoff show and that he was going to talk about it on his podcast so at the time of this recording i dunno i guess our podcast come out on the same day but at the time of this recording jr show has not come out yet so i'm very very anxious to hear what jr thought of the of the kickoff show but i just thought it was i i liked the dynamic pat and i have and i think it's it's unique to us and pat is a is a force into of himself in just i think the world of of what he brings to the show so very very happy about that and then of course i stuck around and was there for money in the bank is well which was just i.

"So do that good i'm sure you probably said it prettier and i probably said it prettier the first time you did i can tell you just fired up right now because i said his name early but i feel like we should clarify in your opinion what you said or what you meant to say was someone else not they've meltzer called and said that dave meltzer had called them to shop a story and then that person told vince mcmahon who told it to you so you heard it from vince who heard it from a media source who claimed that dave meltzer had something but it might not have ever been dave meltzer or anyone who's ever met dave meltzer but by the time the story got to you it was definitely dave meltzer so this is the rumor and innuendo that we address here no one ever said that dave meltzer had this story or that he was shopping this story it's that someone said that they've meltzer head this story when shopping this story right right and that there was this big expose and they were utilizing his name because he likes to claim that he's the wrestling expert what he really is is the wrestling gossip monger in king of the rumor and innuendo and falsehoods well let's not get too crazy well just being factual okay let's talk about something else factual the million dollar man episode just aired on something else to wrestle with on the wwe network one of my favorite episodes that we ever did here because we got that wonderful story about not only vince mcmahon's personal cape collection.
