"This is Greg Valentine host of early to rise radio and the author of the perfect, day formula and unstoppable and I wanNA, help you build an unstoppable abundance mindset because I. Know What it's like to go from poor and broke and the struggling farm boy who really was raised with not very much. and Go and build the life of my dreams. Now want this for you I. Want you to understand it is still possible. Stop listening to the news and the negative media, saying that the American dream is dead. The American dream is available for everybody around the world in every country. Always get better. You can always improve over your situation. And I'm going to show you the seven steps to. On how to do it so welcome to my seven steps to building the abundance mindset, and I, was pumped up to create this based on so many questions from so many people on instagram through email who are struggling in this quarantine cova crisis were thinking too small. Who are leading the negative? Get into, their, head. And you know what the thing is. I live in a bubble, a bubble that I created myself a bubble of positive people of positive influences. Positive Inputs, yes, ideal with reality I. DON'T NEGLECT IT I. don't avoid it, but I do not get. Caught up in it where it will destroy me or destroy my mindset and I bring this to you. My friend I bring this mindset to you because you need it more than ever now. This abundance mindset will serve you for the rest of your life. In good times and bad times we can always think bigger thing better. I think about this Elon Musk is going to help bring people to Mars. Imagine if he just thought August another airline or something like that or if he just thought Oh, one thing, tesla will create electric cars. No, we're going to go and. The full on battery thing we're GONNA. Take people to space. We're GONNA. Do Solar City like just because he thinks that. That's not the only person who can think bigger. and. He must inspire you. Grant Cardoen's ten x must inspire you and understand that in two thousand eight card, own and Elena cartoon were up against the ropes and up against the rocks. They were on the hook for a lot of money, and they started doing an abundance game where they sat around thought. What should I do? Or what would I do if I had two hundred million dollars, and they started playing that abundance game and today they have that money to go on the world tour and help people. And listen just like I was once like you I was stock I was struggling I didn't come from money. I didn't come from a great background I didn't have a great father figure who led me to success? Fortunately I guess I would say. I had a rich Dad, poor dad existence where it went and worked for one of the best entrepreneurs in my town, and he showed me the way he showed me what it was like to serve people properly both on the team and as customers. He showed me what it was like to work hard from night from morning until night, father did, but my father never really had the right plan in place he he made a lot of mistakes. He had untapped talent. And I don't want you to go through life with untapped talent a right, so this is going to be the blueprints you need. Money is out there. Money is out there available to people who are solving problems today. And now in some industries, it's a little bit easier to solve people's problems in the health and fitness basic and solve people's problems online. You can solve people's problems through supplements. There's a huge opportunity there. Some of my best friends are having their best months ever in this quarantine Cova crisis, whereas some of my gym owner partners, they're fighting through it, but it has been tough I understand the differences between massive opportunity created by the crisis and massive obstacles, but giving up is not an option, not when you have an abundance mindset. That's GONNA come through. Consistent communication in three ways one to your customers one to your team and one to yourself. You must be leading your I. You must have that Lyon leadership. If you want to create income in the quarantine Cova crisis, you must lead yourself properly. You must lead your team properly. You must lead your community of customers properly, and you must lead your family properly and three planning and preparation. You can be the hope to light the optimism for them. Because remember my three formula. You control what you can you cope with what you can't control and you concentrate on what counts and that's why in all the negativity today I wanNA bring you this abundance mindset podcast, so let's dive in to Craig Valentine. Seven steps I, number one remove the negative. This means no more CNN not. Fox stay off twitter. Get Out of the junk. It's on your facebook. Feed on. Follow people so that you remain friends with them, but you don't see what they post. Do not get sucked in. You can use social media, but do not let social media used upon you. It is a weapon. It is a weapon that. These companies are using to increase viewership. A weapon that your friends are using to kill time. Because maybe they are without a job. Maybe they are laid off. Maybe they are at home and board. Maybe they're just rabble-rousers WANNA get. People fired up now I'm fired up right now because I. Want to protect you from the negative it t. And remove yourself from environments where you are surrounded with negative people, if you're constantly going to outdoor patios where you may be able to sit in this day, and age, and listening to People Gripe and complain stopped doing that first of all. You've probably drinking alcohol and shutting yourself down second you're you're leading. People's negatively. Eat away at your dreams. There's no time for that. There's also no time for self. Pity love this quote from has rat con. He said I asked for strength in God gave me difficulties to make me strong. I asked for wisdom in God gave me problems to solve I asked for prosperity in God gave me a brain and brawn to work. I asked for courage and God gave me dangers to overcome. I asked for Love and God gave me troubled people to help. I asked for favors and God gave me opportunities. I received nothing. I wanted I received everything I needed. If there is not a better quote out there for these times, this is it. This is absolutely it and so you must lean into the. As a lion leader, you must accept the brutal facts as James Stockdale said in the stockdale paradox except the brutal facts, but think about the future with light hope and optimism. You'RE GONNA make the world a better place. You'RE GONNA. Make your world a better place. You'RE GONNA. Make your family's world a better place. You're going to make your community and your customers world a better place. You'RE GONNA. Make your team's world a better place. You have no other option. If you think you have another option, stop listening to this. Just go give up, quit..

"Can cook burgers right in their kitchen. I mean, then you're onto so everyone loves you. You know? So like, maybe like, a, you know enticing, you know, maybe like an orange juice maker or something like that something just some sort of kitchen product that helps people out Tyson Tyson ham ham, or there you go. And that will turn everyone's opinion of your, Dan. What do you mean? There you go Tyson rose right off the tongue Tyson hammer hammer, everyone needs it. So I'm talking about, you know, the grill factored in what you're talking about. That's not an appliance. That's not Chris did not contribute. Any means an item. It doesn't have to be a kitchen. I wouldn't to make it a hammer just under off the tongue Tyson hammer or hammer or blender or something like that. But just something that, you know, the whole family can use it it makes life easier because that's really when people fell in love with George Foreman. You need to change the game though, like hammers. How often do you buy a hammer in your life? Like, there's very few advancements, the hammers where the form and grow. You can take off the thing that you grill it on you can change the color, bigger one's smaller one. There's all kinds of things happening with George Foreman grill were hammers. It's just hammers are the same. You haven't seen the Tyson ham? You have a hammer you have a mallet, and that's pretty much it shout out to whoever invented the hammer. That thing's been perfect for decades on what I'm saying you put your name on a hammer. You're not changing you're not making a better hammer, the hammer and a light on it. I believe we've reached the last point of evolution on the hammer. I don't. Think it's any getting any better than what it presently. Is you putting your name on a hammer just get out of here for? Greg Greg Valentine event to the hammer. I'll walk by go sit on the therapy couch after you read this ad. We've got an ad to read and then just go lay down on the. Our to go an hour and ten minutes.

He's he's run so many bad jokes by me, my headphones today, I know I can't even come through record concentrate on the show because of the amount he's talking to you during every segment just trying to launch jokes just missiles all over the place still doing role. Hangover? I mean, do you think you're on a heater these checks? You gotta bed day. What's he does? He thinks he's hot. He is Dion waiters. He thinks he's hot even he's Tim Hardaway starting a game over seventeen and still thinking the eighteenth one is going in shooters. Do you have any mistake? I've made today has been made because God's too busy talking to the other room. And I can't concentrate about a Skillet. That's good. Who's an improvement on the Skillet or back? Pass for people. We've been telling you about to lay on the therapy couch out there, it'd be it wouldn't be a punishment. If we made it what happened. How about this exercise bike, Mike Tyson? Took us a minute. Go.

"In gene would hold try to hold the microphone, and he would walk around behind him. And gene, we'll try and wrap it up voyeur just keep going Jean finest. What the fuck am I doing here? Just let him let him do shit. It's ridiculous for me to to stand here and do this. So there was a frustration there. But that's the only guy, you know, gene, looked at it as a challenge on some people. Try get interviews out of him and put words in their mouth and making good and warriors just was impossible along. Give me an example of a guy like that. A guy like nail sometimes guy like Greg Valentine could be challenging Ricky steamboat was not greatest promo in the world. So right, Dino, Bravo, Frenchy Martin some of those guys, you know, it was painful to try get interviews out of them. But you had you had to get something with them. Gene. Would put the words in their mouth and make it entertaining. Mr fuji. Not always that easy voice on. You know, we've heard through the years especially about him day that when near champ minutes wants to talk to you all the time. You know, you go from you know, Vince is they are. But you don't have a ton of interaction with maybe TV here there. Whatever to win. You're the champ. You have a lot more communication with vents. And I'm sure Vince feels that way because our does that because this is really sort of the face of the company. What do you think about amount of TV time and the relationship with viewer? Mangino Cleveland was also sort of faced with the company was his relationship like with vents once they really got up and going. Great. I mean, really and truly great Vince trust, gene. So just as is stated before you you could give Jean something and feel confident that he was going to deliver. So that that relationship was one of trust. And they liked each other. They had a good time. Together, they go out and party together. It was a mutual respect and a genuine genuinely liked each other. So that helped but most importantly, I think that there was respect and trust on both sides that Vince, trusted, gene, trusted, his judgment that whatever he was going to do was going to be the right thing. Well in the right thing is to take care of your money and being good steward with your money. And Brits, you've got a tip on how some of our listeners can do that. Right. Because Robin Hood, it's an investing app and let you buy sell stocks ETF S's options cryptos all commission free.

"Spot and claimed Michaels had been insulting the family all this time. But anyone who watch TV new better? Michael couldn't carry for interest. The knights came off as jobbers and Ray combs as the announcer totally buried, Bruce and Keith to the TV audience acting like they weren't even wrestlers trying to make it out like it was your history teacher over there. Trying to be a wrestler combs was telling jokes on the PA before the show that didn't get over the red. Knight was a rigid. Only supposed to be Terry funk, but funk at the last minute decided to go home when would pin the black ni- and ten minutes forty nine seconds where the drop kick off the top rope. Brett would put the red Knight and the sharpshooter and seven minutes and seventeen seconds. Eventually, you know, what's coming. It's all three hearts are the remaining three hearts versus Michael's Michael's going to take all kinds of great bombs and. Ultimately, this is going to lead to Owen and Bret arguing and Owens gonna turn heel and his mother's gonna start to weep. And we've covered this and our own heart episode, but this match while it is supposed to be, you know, the second most important match or maybe the most important match on the paper view, obviously took a hard left turn here when lawler's out. But the most interesting tidbit of this whole thing to me. Is the Terry funk was supposed to be a night and of all the things a Jerry Lawler tag team with Terry funk was funk in the mix to be a night before was was kicked out of the show. Absolutely. That's tremendous talk me through how the conversation went to bring funk in and then ultimately, why left? We were looking for names. We were looking for some names, it would be surprises as it would be fun. A fun deal to be a part of the survivor series. And originally originally, they would be a mystery those that got it. You know would say look God that that night is walking around like Terry funk. I think that's Terry funk. I think that's Greg Valentine think that sewn so. Thanks knuckle was even one of the names, it was bantered back and forth. So it was looking for legendary. Names yet to put under the mask and for Lawler in and was some kind of history with Lawler too. And or Brett. But then when everything happened with with Lawlor Lawler went away we need someone to fill his shoes. And that that was Shawn just out of we really had no one else. We wanted to be a big big time replacement. Terry funk was still going to be one of the nights. And now we're getting into it in we're getting closer to the match. Pat Patterson has an idea about what if. The nights get unmasked throughout the match. One time reveal is Greg Valentine, then you reveal its Terry funk and religion me snooker, whoever the hell hell else it was. And it'll be fun at a pace everybody. I knew that was him. And they get a pop so we shared this with Brett. And we talked about with brat and said, hey, what do you think about this be thinking some ideas, we haven't really talked to anybody don't know forget to do this. But thinking of ideas of different ways that we can get to the finish here. In addition to that. Now, I'm going to remind me to go back to that. But in addition to that so much of this the Genesis of the whole heart family being together was Bruce Hart had written a letter events. With an angle between him and Brett. And the angle was pretty good. And and it's it pretty much runs along the parallel of what we did with Owen. But it was Brett who came to us and said, you know, I agree with you. I like that angle. But I want to do with Owen. I don't wanna do it with Bruce. And we all agreed because one of Vince is dilemmas was because you know, he he wasn't sure about bringing Bruce in. But he knew what he had an Owen in. Brett was the one who brought oh. And we were like, yes. So then we started building the the whole Owen Hart Bret angle going back to the guys getting unmasked. So everybody came in shows in Boston..

Because when you're calling a match in your calling someone and if they were both wearing white striped tights. Well, you can't identify him by their Trump colored. And so that was four to be able to tell people. Okay. Well to differentiate between the two guys in the ring if you don't know who they are then you can do Trump color.

Let's start at the beginning from the Couve I know Victoria, but. Host enough, close enough. Everybody outside of Canada won't know the difference. So victorious, basic so victorious, basically an island off the mainland Vancouver. Right. And the only way you can get. There's fairy very about. Little. Yeah. By the way, it's the best. I mean, I, I'm such an outdoorsy person. So the island has a little bit of everything. You know, you can serve, you could snowboarding and do everything all in one day. I miss it so much because right now I'm in Orlando and I've got none of that. My only form of entertainment outside is seen heart. So if the office it of what I grew up with, but you know, it's it's nice to live in Orlando in the heat and do that stuff and then come home to and appreciate it. I, that is a huge cultural shift there. I. Yeah, you gotta take him up there, man. He'll he'll be blown. I don't know if he'd appreciate been there before house. He. Yeah. He's been there twice with me and I took them on my many, many hike. Like normally I'll go on a maybe two to three hour hike. I took them on about a twenty minute hike. He complained after five could just he did not understand why I would want to walk up hill to look at it. He couldn't. Weirdo. Okay. So so how's all the start? How's it will kick off for you? What is it that you see? What is it? That's usually, you know, we always talk about what was the flash point for you when when it came to wrestling and would hook you and what caused you to go? Right. This has got to happen for me. Well, in school, I used to attempt to watch wrestling when my sister around third grade and my parents wouldn't let me they never let us, so we always have to sneak up stairs she watch wrestling. So that only really lasted about a year of watching it and quickly. Everybody was like, oh, it's fake, you know, it's not cool anymore. So I didn't watch wrestling growing up basically and all I went to one house show in Victoria because really inventory other, there's nothing to do. So when a show comes to town, whether it's wrestling or whoever it is we're all there. So I went to one house show for fun. Didn't think anything of it sauce forward to. I was about. Twenty three years old going to school in Calgary, Alberta and I was procrastinating doing my homework and on the TV came raw and I never. I never had watched wrestling after third grade and raw was on TV, and I saw the women's match and I kinda stopped and I started watching it and they're doing my homework and Mike. Man, I think I could do that and my sister's thinking like, what are you talking about? My watch this. I bet you could do that that drop kick thing that thing that she did. I'm sure I could do.

And the torch in certain ways from the strong, he'll team that been virtually unbeatable and gene and only Anderson, and then Rick flair and Greg Valentine and what a great team they were and how much money they drew. Absolutely. And then of course, they were stripped of the titles and they had they had a world tag team tournament at the Greensboro Coliseum, and I- bunch of my friends and I got into a van and and drove up there, and it was sold out that night and I was there for that too. So yeah, I was there during I missed that. I really miss that. We're never be able to go back to that. Yes. When you announced today, do you feel that you're talking to a different type of wrestling fan, or do you think your mission is the same to get them immersed in the moment and believe that heat on the, he'll celebrate with the baby faces goals are, or do you feel when you're announcing that that would be passe or insulting to today's fan, who knows better approach that differently? If I promise you the same way weight and I tell you why? Because that's what chord Bauer, once good even want to call it as sporting event so wicker. So and I've been working with rich Bochini who I really enjoyed working with. And now we got me working at mad strike and I'm telling you spur strikers tremendous man. Why didn't I have a chance to work with him before? And so we're calling like a real sporting event so that the end of that that's fine. I like the direction. I like being told this to what we wanna do without having to tell me word for word. What. Though they want me to say, now court does produce us in our ear some, but not that much, but because you know court high God, he gives us notes. We get packets on the wrestler's. I never had that before, never. And so it's kind of it's it's an in many ways easier to get the story line over when you gotta gotta written down in front of you. And so I really, really enjoy and appreciate that. But yeah, we're trying to make it like, and in the back of my mind, I'm thinking. Okay, I get you, but who are we trying to fool. Well, let's just go ahead and do it. Let's do it real sporting than that went on, and that's how I think wrestling fans want it, whether they know it or not. I mean, when I when I tune into a movie or when I go to a movie, I don't think they're trying to fool me when they immersed me in that universe..

"So ricky left let's talk about greg valentine briefly here because i think valentine's doing something kind of cool that maybe people miss at the very first wrestlemainia he defended the intercontinental title against junkyard dog at wrestlemania two he defended the tag titles against the british bulldogs in here four he's a part of a tournament for the world title so in the first four years he manages to compete for all the titles and the wwf which is kinda fun next up we've got main gene doing an interview with the british bulldogs and coby wear and i find it interesting that out of these three guys only coco is in the hall of fame gino clues in the hall of fame i was talking about the wrestlers but i think it's fair to say we get questions a lot of times about why aren't the british bulldogs in the hall of fame it's not popular to say but one of the things that vince probably considers is the way gop passes away and whether or not they would be a wheelchair on stage would that be fair to say you know i really don't know what it is but i do think that from the way that the dynamite kid left and some of the things that dynamite said wasn't you know all that favorable to the company so i don't know that they would frown on that but bulldog i think is somebody who's made a lot of positive contributions to the business didn't you know his passing was not good and unfortunately a lot of bads circumstances surrounding it but i do think that davey boy had a hall of fame career just to.

"Was that it would be different than the syndicated product well it's different because it's live we had different camera angles there was just a necessity because the way that the room was set up we have less cameras so you saw things shot in a different way probably didn't notice it is much at home but when you compare the two side by side you could see this is definitely a different product we also want to give the illusion hence the man on the street in not doing the set interviews we wanted to have the illusion that cameras were everywhere even though we had less cameras and just more gaga going on in general one of the original ideas when we were conceptualising all of this was to utilize legent's to go back and and take some old wwf legends and maybe have won a month so one month you have jimmy snuka come in he has a match for good time okay good feel good sake and then the next month you have captain lou albino appear and then you have greg valentine come in and work imagine then bob back link comes in and has a match but she only that's only place you would see amazon raw that income in fulltime it would be oneoff deals just won't off special raw events and just different things like that it feel sort of fine as a little footnote to history though that the very first nitro has the debut of legs lugar jumping ship and the very first raw as the tease for him making a debut as the narcissist which i think is pretty fun yet um the steiner's beat the executioners and another squash and doing appeared in the crowd during the match with his arm in the slaying and we've done a full episode on dork in the archives of course but during this match i think vince mentions that a buffalo bill is going to be joining the world wrestling federation that doesn't wind up happening uh thanks for the strange prevents to announce the someone's coming and then never mentioned again in never shows up do you remember anything about that what fell apart well.

"To the intercut and olga intercontinental wrestler who was following in the footsteps of greg valentine's needles and had already savaged don morocco that era and now defining an intercontinental championship era for himself and then the fans choice over vince is choice of lex lugar in the lex express there was a journey there too had brett just gone right from calgary to being pushed as this great new siding and a top star i think fan in lean ninety 93 or something i think fans what looked at him differently too so some of it is the journey the wrestler goes on what with the fans and at the fans collectively fielders a possibility they won't get their fair shake yang disagree point as yet that's right especially in the case assassin deem that fans have always thought that they should be stars and they've always been stars then yeah there hasn't been that moment do you think gun do you think this scepticism that people have with vince mcmahon and bringing these guys in is fair any more i think that there was definitely a time where it was fair but i feel like in the last several years there haven't been a lot of screwups in terms of bringing in big signings and screwing up the debut i mean i'm not sale you know you could say what you want about like guys like mike bennett or somebody like that but i mean more you know people were afraid of i i this is going back to the samoa joe conversation and people worrying about samoa joe come to the main roster people were very afraid of knock amora coming to the main roster people were afraid of neville come into the main roster on do you think that that scepticism is fair based on the history of i mean not only knock amora an and neville but also kevan owens and sammy's saying and thin valor and end and the shield and and all these guys that it seems it seems really liked the guys who have not gotten a fair shake from an x t are the guys that have been homegrown guys and not really the indy darlings.
