"Okay. Like, you're rich. I would never send my wife to work. No, I don't say it. Dude, send her to work. No, I'm just saying, do you want to go, like if she wants to go to work? I'm like, you're not going to work. We're rich. We own the place now. Tell those people that told you to go to work that I own them. They're in my slaves. White people firms. Yes. Then it'd be black. It'd be like all these black ferns popping up all over the state. Like, hey man, I buy the WWE. So WWE can no longer be super Republican? Oh my God. Kevin Dunn fuck you. Yeah. He quit. Pain can be like, can I come back? No, not unless you go against this anti abortion stuff, but I don't want to. Well, fuck you. You can't come back as Kane. You can only come back as doctor Isaac Jacob. DDS. You can't confuse doors. Ain't no way I'm gonna be rich and I work for anybody. Hulk Hogan's out of the Hall of Fame. Yeah. Immediately. We'd have a hall of shame. But of all these jerseys, Hogan's Jersey would go up, change Jersey would go up. Under people be mad at selling me. How you put undertaker in the hall of shame? 'cause blue lives matter. Fuck you. All ashamed. What you gonna do? I'm rich. Can't stop me? You can't stop me. Why does the sexual assault? That is the Vince McMahon, like mindset. It just ran it like, yo, what are you gonna do to me? I'm rich, bitch. That's the point of being rich. That's how everybody. Sorry. Not even sorry, sorry, not sorry. I'm gonna do what I want. Right? And as long as you give me a job, I'm rooting for you to win. I take care of my people, but I ain't working for nobody I don't like. That's crazy. Me and Cole, I'll buck raw, he book SmackDown. Yeah, and if you guys suck at it on fire, but I'm just saying that's the other thing. Just for hiring people. You're trash at it. You gotta go. I don't trust you, particularly with booking. I've heard your fantasy booking. I've seen people book worse. And on my watch, I'd be like, Triple H in this book. All right. We got so far off. Versus Jamal hill. These guys are fighting for like, apparently they were like a $100,000. And they get their taxes taken. I'm talking about making a 144 million. All the minority UFC fighters fight for me. Fuck Dana White. I'm rich. Yeah, at least you get a ton of champions and shit. Yeah. It all be happy. Yeah. All right. You gotta take gauge though. Gay cheese like the Justin Timberlake for the UFC. I need gee. I don't even understand this reference. He's like the white guy that you got to take. You let him do R&B and shit. Just engage he's like, cool. We just can't take all the black people. I need gauging. I take anybody who, I want to be clear. Of course I take all the black people. But if it's like, if you're a black conservative, like Herschel Walker, fuck you, you gotta get out of here. Okay. You're cool, why dude? You can come with me. Are we taking Colby just for spice? No. No, you know how unemployed Kobe would be? I buy all the American flags so you can't buy them. I would just take Kobe and book him against like the hardest people in the country. Like you're going usman out of Sanya. I'd be like, yo, you versus in ganu. He's like, I don't even fight it heavyweight. Dance with you. It'd be interesting. I buy his house. Kick him out. That's how you do that shit. But she's not even on the market. I bet you it would be offered. I buy all that shit. Buy his block. Kick him out. You can't even come to your block anymore. It's over. By your gym. You train there. Petty garage. Oh, I own that too. All right. Jamal hill gets the knockout over Thiago Santos. Hey, I told you I was washed up. He wasn't even, it was a good fight. It was, but until then, his dead ass tire. His punch resistance is just not there at this point. Yeah. And yeah, these guys were exhausted, wing and punches. We kind of knew this was going to happen. I don't know where Jamal hill stands in the light heavyweight division now, 'cause I'm curious what Dominic rays looks like when he comes back. I don't think right now I wouldn't pay Jamal hill to be eerie or Glover or yawn. I think him and Anthony Smith would be a great fight, great fight. If Anthony, once Anthony hills from his broken ankle, but I didn't like how tired he was. No, he was dead tired. He was dead tired. You still got two rounds left. I'm not sure I've seen him fight a 5 rounder. He hasn't, but now this is one of those things. It's like, hey man, you're tired after two rounds? That's not a great sign. No. He dug deep. Got to finish. Also, he was wrestled for a great majority of that fight. It started to take. You're going to find 5 round fights and you get a knockout wasn't. Second round? The knockout? Yeah. Fourth.

"Them in those two positions. And all of a sudden you hear the music for Hogan and you'd think that I always offer compare it that Hogan fans like eagle fans. Not fairly eagle, but The Rock group, the eagles. They just want to hear hotel, California, one more time. Isn't that the best way to say it, brother? You're right on the money. They want they want a leg drop and a hook up and some of his traditional things. But they won't hotel California that one more time. And if they could hear that, they'll be happy. But is it true with Steve Austin or Ric Flair? Yeah, undertaker. It's so funny. And I get frustrated to the point of almost being angry, but I talk myself out of it. Is, you know, wrestling fans are so fickle in the sense that there'll be so anti legends, right? I can't believe they're so reliant on bringing this guy back. I can't believe they're bringing this guy in. He's too old. But man, the audience, not the little microcosm of people that bitch about shit on Reddit or write about stuff and think they're smart. But I'm talking about the people that just love to watch Russell because it's an escape and it brings them a sense of joy and fun. Man, when you bring back a Hulk Hogan, and you bring back a John Cena, you bring back a Steve Austin. That's exactly what you're saying. You hit it right on the head. They just want that feeling that they had the first time I heard hotels. Exactly. Or the first time they got laid while they were listening to the hotel California. That's the deal, man. They don't want to see a whole show, but man, it feels good to go back and visit that one more time. Yeah, that's right. And ironically, when we were in Vegas, three or four weeks ago for a pay per view, AEW pay per view. Out there, we saw the eagles concert. They were playing in Vegas on the Saturday night while we were there. The papers on Sunday, we had TV on the Wednesday Friday, and then that was an off night. So Dan Lambert, who owns America's top team, one of our guys, he so hooked up with all the casinos for ciders. That he got us some tickets. Raphael Morphy and I went along with Tony chem and my Kyoto and they had never seen the eagles in concert and they were blown away. They were saying, I guess a lot of people say, I knew the words to every song. Yeah. So they recognized the leg drop. They recognized the big booth. They recognized that hooking up. The same deal. It's the same theory. And so it was kind of ironic that he said as an example, because I'm a big eagles fan. And I saw multiple times, we both loved them. We went through the Glen fry years and now the, what's the cost name of Oklahoma, Vince Gill years, who's absolutely phenomenal. I thought they lost Don Henley. They say you can't replace these guys. Replace anybody. If they're good. And this feels really good. So that's kind of what I saw that deal. And we're deviating too far down the rabbit hole of rock and roll music, but I think that's a good example for Hogan. He's got those hits. He's got gold records on the wall. As Joe Walsh would say, and he's a classic. And you know what? The eagles in whatever configuration, I think Glenn Frey's son is now he was on there for a while. He lived. But he wanted to rode you up for a year or two after his dad died. And now he's on his own. So, but they've still got an all star team. They still got ten of the Schmidt. They still got Glenn Frey. And maybe the most important element of all this still got Joe Walsh. And so they still got their band. And they're still very good in the entertainment. And they could make up their mind tomorrow morning that they wanted to her again and they would be selling out in their current configuration in any venue they decided the book. Yeah, and we felt the same from the same characteristics of personality characteristics for hulk. He's a legend and some people will buy a ticket to go see him to take a kid and they can show that kid who they are hero was when they were the kids age. So I thought that was pretty, I don't think that's pretty cool. And a logical, I think that's right. A lot of people say, this is a God daddy loved. So, you know, and I think there's something to be said for that too. Before we get, we're going to have to wrap this up here in another couple of minutes, but I want to speed up just a little bit, talk about a couple bullet points, I guess, at this point, as we're kind of going through now, Hogan's return to WWE leaves WWE comes back to WWE. We got this mister America character. I hated it when I saw it. I was embarrassed by it for Hogan. That he was doing it. But I also knew it was probably his idea or at least he was excited about it because he loves that kind of hokey corny shit. Was that Vince's idea was idea? Whose idea was that? I think it was a collaborative effort, Eric between the two, but then certainly supported it and liked it, thought it was entertaining. And so that's kind of that deal. But yeah, we thought he blows out the door again, presumably, I don't even know. I never asked him. I never paid attention to the dirt sheets or whatever, but supposedly it's because of pay, was it a pay issue? Apparently, I've always said this when talents get unhappy. Are they want to leave or they do leave? Or whatever, it's usually one of the two seas.

"So Jim, we're going to skip forward a lot because now we're going to go right past one day that wars, Hogan turn, the impact that had, the reaction to all that, maybe we'll do that on another show because that's a show unto itself really, but we don't see Hogan back in WWE and it's a February of 2002. Were you party any of those discussions before reaching out to hulk? I mean, did you invent talk about that at all? Yeah, yeah, of course. We just thought he still had value. Unlike some of his peers, or his perspective new teammates, who thought that it was over, but what they really thought was that they didn't want the competition, because they knew that he was still over at the name had great value. Great name identity. I mean, my God, he's the most famous restaurant history. And he still walking around and able to do what you think. So we felt like if he was booked properly, not overexposed. He had value for us. It was just a matter of where his head was and how big a commitment he wanted to make, reentering the game. That's kind of where I saw it. You know, he's getting back in the game after a little hiatus. And you know, he's not a young kid. He's not perfectly healthy. He said all those back surgeries as we've mentioned endlessly. So, you know, that was we were optimistic that it was going to work. And he would be a nice component to add to the mix. He's Hulk Hogan. He's always going to be Hulk Hogan. And Vince and I understood that. And we said that to each other a lot. But a lot of the talents thought he could never be the same. And you know, and here's the funny thing about it. We never have asked him to be the same. You have to he had limitations. So be smart, recognizes the limitations, and booking accordingly. It's not that hard if you're just willing to, if you're talents willing to acquiesce that they're not perfect and they're not, they have to have a little bit of booking help. A little sizzle need to be added to their formula. Little humility, yeah. Yeah, but we thought he has, we just seriously thought he could still come in and pop a house or something up. And if nothing else, those guys need to understand if your book might be in a situation where you're putting you over. Or you're voting him over. But you got to work together. And we believe that it was worth the experiment was worth a chance. Jim, I just jumped ahead to 2002 because that's what hulk made his way back. But there was a point in time, I think it was around 96 or 97. I don't even 97, I remember nitro was in Denver. And how can I, you know, hung out all afternoon, got along great, shared addressing room, probably had a couple pierce during the evening while we were working, things were going great. We were on a pretty good role. And hulk told me that night, you know, early in the evening, he goes, hey man, I just want you to know, I'm meeting with Vince McMahon tonight. Vince is flying into Denver to meet with me after nitro. And he said to me, he goes, look, I'm just going to meet with him. I'm going to be here because I think we were up. We were either coming up close to renewing hulk or at least talking about it. So there was a window of opportunity there. And hulk did he really did convince me that I'm going to meet Vince, don't worry about it. I'm not going anywhere. Were you a part of that discussion? No. I didn't know about it. Yeah. But I wasn't part of what, you know, Vince had a vision. And he had a he had a thought. He thought he had this thing down. He thought he had the Hulk Hogan conundrum is solved. But he didn't share a lot of that stuff with me. And so he didn't share a lot of stuff with anybody. He just wanted to get this deal done and he was very adamant about that. And he knew how fickle a senior wrestlers are. Senior star wrestlers are, you know, they don't want to change. It's not good for them. At least in their minds high. So, but I didn't have a set down with him before he went to Denver. No. So hulk's back now in 2002, how weird is it after you'd spent a little bit of time kind of burying hulk like everybody else? Positioning was an old man. Weird. Yeah, weird. It was weird. And we can, you know, he was, it was, you know, the billionaire Ted stuff, and then Hogan is impersonations are not very flattering. And it was odd. He has almost, I was kind of embarrassed that we had done so much shit to his character for no reason. See, I'm not a big fan of Eric of putting, if I'm running, if I'm on raw, I don't need to see nitro footage or talk about nitro or

"It was a really rough night, pretty much everybody was in a decent mood. It's the end of the day. Everybody's drinking wine, music's cranked up, especially if Shane was on the plane. If Shane McMahon was on a plane, then the music was listening to fucking AC/DC. Very loud morning. Yeah, and everybody's singing along with it. But I was hung out in the back of the plane. It was like me and miss Surrey and Bruce Pritchard and a couple other, you know, maybe a writer or two would be back eating sushi drinking wine. I didn't mind it, but man, those mornings, getting there in the morning when man comes screaming up in his fucking Bentley slams on the brakes, does his little. NASCAR slide up right up to the stair to the plane and gets out of course. He's all tense, ready to go. He's always at tension all the way to the way to the venue. But flying home wasn't bad, but I preferred to fly. I didn't get to fly commercial, but I always had to fly with Vince, but they had only lasted four months, but I don't know if I could have done it. This is daunting to say the least it's all predicated on what kind of mood he was going to be in. And it's going to be willing to listen to another idea. It's going to be willing to compromise, does he hate to show him, start to finish? Are we starting all over? Sometimes you go to find you start all over. And the writers have already written this ten hours and hours, and they have meetings that met with him. Signed off on and all of a sudden, boom. Yeah, you met with him up until 1 o'clock in the morning, like 6 hours before he had to beat in the airport. Right. And he decided he didn't want to okay, great. All right, that's it. That's what we're going to do. And then you have these poor bastard interns are showing up at 4 o'clock in the morning, printing all this shit off, so it's ready to go to the plane by 8 o'clock in the morning. And again, on a plane and he wants to know if we're going to change all that. Bullshit. Change his mind on the drive from his house to the airport. Do I find? It's just, you know, it happened all the time. It just had to be prepared for it. So if you could be prepared for it. But let's get back to Hulk Hogan. You and I will go off a whole different. We'll do an entirely different show. Okay. So Hogan's been around that now. He's on his way out. He's gone. No more Hogan. The trial is going on. That's got to be a whole another crazy set of drama and crazy. I don't want to get too much into that. That shit's all been covered a million times. But now Hogan's leaving, he's going to WCW at some point that becomes known. Randy comes on your radio show, buries the shit out of hall. And I never knew what these guys were going to talk about because we didn't do any pre interviews. I had no idea what was going to be sandwiches agenda. And I was very shocked. Because that wasn't a style of the show wasn't a hatchet job show. It was Randy changed that a little bit. Going into business for himself. Why do you think you did that? Why? You don't? I guess he was really, really pissed at Hogan more than some people agreed or understood. He wanted to make a point, and he made his point. It was not, it was not great. It was a great radio. Okay, radio. But he just illustrated his total disdain for Hogan. So whatever happened between those two and with our work both working for Vince is what it was, but savage was not going to forget and forgive very easily. Did you have any incited? I mean, I almost feel like a high school kid asking this question, but was it jealousy? Was Liz the issue? Or was it more business? I think Liz had was an element in this issue. I'm not sure how big a role she played, but I think she was in play to some degree, and I think that may stem from Randy thinking that Hogan and Liz has something going on. I don't know that to be true. I have never had that confirmed, I've never really asked. I really don't care. But for whatever reason, it got personal. And so sometimes you can cut the chase to your search for what's going on about going, is there a woman in this equation? And there was a beautiful woman in this equation. And she was very unique. And that love hates she had with Randy was what it was. So he just, he never trusted Hogan at all for whatever reason. And I've always thought that the common place to start looking at that deal was Liz. You know, just, it was just a very uncomfortable situation. And they weren't, as this I recall, they worked together much. They stayed apart quite a bit. And sorry, a good thing for all of us. If someone relies on you financially,

"That's a big territory. Yeah, and a lot of people are seeing you multiple times in a month. So you got to change up a little bit. You got to change the two wrinkles here or there in yawn. And they were able to do that, but there was just a learning process for those guys. And I'm sure that Verne learns things off, Roy. They were friends. They were colleagues. Both tough guys. So I'm sure that Verne learned a few things from Shah. But they all all those guys took from each other. I know Kevin would say this, that was a shower you should do this or the battle royal char used to do this. It was great at building a title match over time. So it was just a unique time for everybody. And we all were kind of playing along to see where it's going to take us. Well, talking about seeing where it's going to take us. Hulk Hogan makes a couple other appearances and making fulfills his European tour obligations, but basically he's on his way out. From the time he started in whatever was March 9th, 93 to the point where hulk's now getting ready to leave the company. Did you end up ever dealing with him? Did you get any closer to him? We're working more directly with him with that time or was it pretty much not really? Not really, Eric. I tried. It just was a tense thing. And again, trust was a big issue. He knew I was Vincent's guy. And I was going to do what miss wanted. Because I want to keep my job and grow with the company that seemed to be the way to do that was to acquiesce to what the chairman wanted. They're a good work. Come to work on time. Buster ass, all those good things. So that was kind of where I was. I didn't have any a lot of leeway there. But when I saw Terry, I was always friendly. I was always professional, always accommodating, but I'm not sure that he believed my sincerity was real. Or what? But it never really clicked in that first go around at all. How about when he did your WWF radio show? I think he was there to promote mister nanny. It was great. It's a famous well, that doesn't work for me, brother. No, he was good. He was good and he was a good guest. He was talkative. He was informative, entertaining. But I was pleasantly surprised. He had an opportunity on my radio show, which was a big deal at that time. On WSB, you know, 50,000 watt stations went 37 states. And at night it was a huge blowtorch signal. And so he knew that he had an opportunity to sell this product. So he's smart, marketing lies. So he cut the promo and he talked about his show and she Hulk Hogan isms and off we went. So he was a great guest. He really was. JR, our next sponsor, I should say your next sponsor has a product that I absolutely love. In fact, I have been using this product for 6 months before the game is sponsored. And I'm talking about AG one. My wife, you matter, miss B she's been a student of nutrition, and has studied nutrition for about 20 or 25 years now. So we both always have our ears out and eyes open for new product that's high quality, incredible product. And about 6 months ago, I started here Joe Rogan talking about it and gave it a try and absolutely felt in love with that. Didn't realize just how significant having better gut health and more energy, how much that could be achieved through one simple product. It tastes great. I look forward to it. I've been out of her. Like I said, 7 or 8 months now. Absolutely love it. It tastes great. It's super healthy. It has a mild tropical taste and I actually look forward to each and every morning. That's my routine, JR. I get up every morning, first thing I do is just like mix one scoop, AG one, ice cold water, throw it a couple scoops of ice and that's how I start my day every single day. So what do I do that JR?

"We're going back to this time, and you've been in the company just a little bit, man, relatively short period of time. You've called a match for Hulk Hogan, one of the biggest names at that point, the history of professional wrestling, and maybe still in some ways arguably to this day. If you look at impact during certain eras and things like that, it's kind of a big damn deal. And now you called the match for him, you know, that's basically going to lead to him leaving the company. That's kind of accomplishment. Pretty early on. Yeah, well, you know, it was the Islamic I received and I did the best I could with it. I tried to take care of Hogan on its way out. He had a good out with that camera. The cameraman was of course downtown Bruno Harvey Wilson. That was his little role that day. Well, whose idea was that, by the way, man? That's the interruption. You know, I don't know. I want to say it might have been pat Patterson's idea. Might have been his idea. But somebody pat events came up with, as I best I recall, remember? That must have been high that day, because I've ever heard on a pat made sense to me, but having that goofy fucking photographer with a given camera. Well, they're just trying to find something to give Hogan an out. An excuse. And how do we do it that's unique? And that's what they came up with. Pat must have forgot his English French dictionary and confused unique was stupid. I love that. I do. I love that. He was a very young man, boy. I'll tell you, he was, he was a brilliant guy and a lot of the top stars in WWE now can a lot of can look back on their careers to say that Patterson was an asset. And Dwayne Johnson's won. Big time pat Patterson was huge. And rocks career. And others, you know, pat had a good line of communication with Austin. All those guys. So he was very much a part of the success that we had eventually had during the attitude era. Pat was helping those guys to find their game. And he held a job doing it. You know, when I was after I kind of moved on beyond executive producer and started getting involved with creative a little bit in 95 and then more 96. People kept asking, man, who's a one person you'd love to get from WWE. And it wasn't undertaker and it wasn't Shawn Michaels, no disrespect to them, but I knew that they weren't available anyway. They were both well, first of all, they want Sean because he was a trip and I didn't want another trip to deal with. But undertaker, I had heard from so many people he was so loyal to Vince. There was no way it was ever going to happen. So I never even thought about undertaker. But I coveted pat Patterson. I wanted pat so bad. Because historically, and you'll have a different perspective on this maybe than I did, but WCW never had no disrespect to dusty or anybody else. I love dusty. I really did. He was kind of a mentor to me in some respects. But when it came to finishes, me and WCW's finishes sucked. And I used to watch WWF shows, especially the pay per view shows. And it was like every finish was three dimensional. You thought you were seeing the fit now, you weren't seeing the finish. You were seeing a setup for a finish. And now we know, okay, now this is act two in a free act finish. And now you get to the finish. The finish itself was a journey within a journey, like the match is a journey of its own, right? You have the psychology and the storytelling and all the things that go into match. The anticipation to build up, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. But then when you get in certain knocking on the door of the finish, then the finish becomes a journey within the journey. And pat was just amazing at that. Told great story. You know, wrestling in a territory like he did for 15 years in San Francisco for Roy scheier. Plenty of opportunity to refine his game in ring game and psychological game because they're in the same towns every week. And it was a nice little driving territory and he was there a long time. So I think all those things that he learned to do at episodically on TV were collaborating with Roy sharp, who was the hell of a Booker. I'm told. Was a great practice for what he ended up doing for Vince. He was just excellent. And he could think two or three shows down the road. He got the talent behind him, the talent, you know, I trusted him. I guess it's the best way of putting it. They trusted him. And they knew that his word, and he wasn't trying to get their spot. That's another thing as soon as challenging and booking somewhere is that the booking guys were experts who still believe they had gas in our tank to go out there and draw money, more money than the guy that's

"A call prior to this event. Yeah. And if you notice in this footage that we've been watching, if you happen to be watching along with us here in the afternoon shows dot com. Hogan's got a big old black eye. Yes, he does. He and Brutus had been out on jet skis, and maybe I got the story wrong, maybe you heard it differently, but they've been out on jet skis at a pretty serious jet ski accident. Brutus had a massive amount of damage to the head of the face required tons of stitches and Staples and reconstructive surgery and that's where here's another little piece of wrestling trivia for those of you who love this kind of crazy shit. I can't believe that I remember it because I've been out of my privilege in now for about a month and a half. But this is where oh gosh, I can't believe it was Ellis Edwards. Who was kind of a quasi stuntman and Hogan had I think been introduced with him doing his show under whatever it was thunder and Paradise. And Ellis happened to be out on jet skis with hulk and Brutus and pretty serious accident with zealous that actually probably saved us his life. Wow. At that point. And then Ellis became one of those people that Hulk Hogan became very loyal to this is why I ended up having not having to hire because Ellis did a lot for us. I would have never hired him otherwise. And then Ellis went on to have another 20 or 25 year career at WWE as a result. All as a result of an accident that happened right before the match that you called back in 1993. Yeah. Yeah. I never got the whole story on that deal because there were so many stories floating around what happened would didn't happen. There was a fight, you know, oh, that's a dramatic and there was a fight. They don't want to talk about it. So I never really knew the whole story of that deal. Other than those guys dodged a bullet. And their faces, you know, showed that Hogan, I remember seeing Hogan at WrestleMania 9, which is for the submit was in Las Vegas. She just spelled. And his black eye was a lot worse than it was there. So he was, he looked rough, man. You really did look rough, but the show must go on and this is going to go come out or high water, no matter what Hogan looked like. The black eye kind of fit the motif of a pro wrestler.

"So a couple of weeks after you called your first match with Hulk Hogan and the Beverly brothers, by the way, I came up in the business. I was introduced into wrestling in 1987 with Verne and the Beverly brothers, I think, popped their cherry about the same week I did. And I went to work for vern. So it's really cool seeing them work together. Mike eNOS and Wayne bloom, lady the good job of making Hogan. But the shine on the baby faces. You know, quite frankly, so they did their role in that match, but that's what you found out with everybody with Hogan. There's a lot of guys who grew up idolizing him. Now we're getting the chance to work with him and the chance of making him look good. Live with our type thing. And they look forward to it. Barely brothers are right there at the top of the list. They were Hogan fans at Hogan friends and they certainly work like it, which is good. Yeah, I mean, to go from working for burn Ghani at that time, in 1987, 88, 89, when I was there with the Beverly brothers, were then Wayne and Mike. Yeah, they're probably making a buck 75 a week. You know? So a $175 a week, by the way. So yeah, making the move to WWE and having a chance to work with one of the biggest names in the business was probably, you know, they may not say it the same way today, but probably the highlight of their career in some respects. I wouldn't doubt it. They probably made more money during these to say, he knew told me this. Along with others that were there tenured monsoon, is that back in the day when they were having running house shows two or three at night and Hogan was booked, that's the first thing the guys looked at. They didn't look to find out what town they ran. They looked to find out what town Hogan was in. And if they wrote Hogan's car at the house shows a lot of events, they're happy. And I think that's 6 well for Hogan. Everybody would rather be they didn't care where they were. They were worried about their booking and was tell they were going to be in. They just wanted to be on the same card with Hogan because they knew more than likely it was going to draw. So let's talk about one of those next cards shortly after this match in on March 9th. Hoping to feed yokozuna shortly after yokozuna defeated Bret Hart. Were you per VTL that? Do you know what was going on before the night of that match or could you? Yeah, it was kind of a political nightmare. You had different parties while being for different things. And to beat yokozuna at that time was a little bit of a risk because we didn't know how well his character was going to withstand a loss to the returning Hulk Hogan. But it was, I thought it was kind of cool booking. And it certainly reinvigorate Hogan. It showed that yokozuna was human. They did a little crazy finish and so it wasn't like he got guzzled or eaten alive. So but it was very political. There was a side. You know, Yoko had a lot of followers within the company. A lot of relatives, a lot of friends, he was very lockable. So he's getting his big break, and now the old men's coming back and taking it away from you. So there was a little bit of political, I don't say upheaval. That's overdramatic, but it wasn't the most popular move within the Moors. So I'm going to test you here. Okay. And I always fail with these tests so don't feel any pressure because I'm horrible at the kind of question I'm going to ask you. But you know, one of the first interviews that I did, I think it was on ESPN. For vern was with yokozuna. Before he was yokozuna. Do you remember his name in AWA before Yoko was Yoko? Yeah, I did. So you asked me, you know as soon as I checked. Coquito maximus. Coquina maximus. Yeah, that's it. Yeah, coquina. Coquina maximus. Rodney Yoko was such a lockable guy. And guys were so happy that he got his break. And he was a top heel and a territory. With his gimmick, he was very, very marketable and different size his nationality and how he's positioned with all unique and so for Hogan to come in and destroy the guy that seemingly unbeaten unbeatable. Was how it was, and it was certainly drove a little bit of a wedge between hulk and some of the other guys, not that Hogan had not been in that same position on many occasions. It didn't break him into slowing down. I don't know if it even affected him whatsoever. But there was some pushback there with that whole deal. A lot of meetings, a lot of changes, and so I just kind of waited till the end of the day or the last minute said, okay, now what are we going to do? Because as ever changing. And that's just, you know, I've always tried myself and being able to call whatever I see them to monitor. So I figured, well, you know, I'm not going to have a hand in the final final on this creative, whether I'd like to do what they're doing or that I don't. But I'm going to be prepared to call the match. So what's a goddamn match on the monitor? I could call that. If I could see it, I could give you a match. I can do that work. So that's kind of where I got to myself. Let me get to compartmentalize this back to my little area. That I can control. And go

"For better or worse, you know, whatever, whatever relationship hulk and Brutus had always tried to take care of him. And not just Buddhists or others as well. There were others as well. And to agree, I may have been one of them. You know, when it came to TNA, TNA wanted to bring Hulk Hogan in, how couldn't Hulk Hogan would go in unless he brought Eric Bischoff. I joke about it all the time. I got Jimmy harded into TNA. I didn't want to be there. I got Jimmy harded into there. So as much as it was a pain in the ass, they have to deal with guys like Brutus because of hall could pay that tax. I kind of admire the guy for just look, here's the deal. If you want me, I'm loyal to my Friends, you're going to have to be loyal to them too. Yeah, that's a great trait. And a passing trait here. It's not that way for everybody. And a lot of talents are so insecure that they are afraid to bring along their tax, their baggage. Not hulk. He knew exactly his worth. It has value, and he had leverage. And all that bowl down to is getting one of his buddies a gig or two or three buddies a gig, then that's what he's going to do. So, and you know it, Vincent, I didn't have that issue when it came to us, the first time because he was just kind of getting back in the family, shall we say. Yeah. And it was a little slower process than he was accustomed to. But look, he still had access to McMahon. He doesn't have the access to McMahon that he had prior to. It wasn't wide open. For the door was always open. This may say the door is always open. But we both know that the doors open, he says it's open. And I think Terry Hogan had to understand that. And it's just to it. And it wasn't an easy adjustment. Now, I get it. I get it. Especially knowing him. And I know this is going to sound really weird to people that don't know hulk quell, but that probably in a way sounds so cornball, but hurt his feelings. Because I think hulk went back there with an anticipation of a relationship that used to exist. And things had changed. The business had changed. Vince had changed. And a lot of the influence of Eric around events, wrestlers I'm talking about. They were not a Hogan fans. Because they knew that automatically when he got booked back into the territory that he would be a player. And he would be taking somebody's spots. He'd be the main event. He'd be key TV time. And a lot of the talents in, we put a bug in the advances here. He's old. He's broken down. He's back as bad. It can hardly get up and down. And they talked against Hogan. Of this money there, but not on the same terms that it once was. But he still thought there was value there. And so did I, quite frankly. His whole coconut for God's sakes just that's a big deal to me. And it was a big deal to this. Events just wanted to make sure that he was, he had a please both sides of the aisle. The young talent is a Triple H is a guy like that that wanted to be on their own unencumbered and all that stuff. Those guys were very vocal. They didn't want to lose their spot. But they didn't realize that you still have a good match with Hogan. Kurt Angle had a great match in folk. As limited as Terry was, he had a great match with Kurt. And so I think that it was just a tough transition that nobody foresaw. And I think you're right. I think Terry probably felt a little bit, you know, back Bernard a little bit. He's kind of taken for granted. Hey, you're here. You got a job. Shut up and wrestle. And that's not the way Hogan works. And it's not the way he left. And that's the tough part of coming back, right? Yeah. These are always a little bit rules of different environments different. JR, hold up for just a second. I don't know if I ever told you this. But you know, thinking about how we all broke into the business differently and what got us there. Unlike you, I didn't break into the wrestling industry because I had any talent. I was able to break into the wrestling business because I frankly had a great head of hair and if there's anybody that understands just how important it is to have a great head of hair, it's yours truly. And I got to admit at 67 years old, I've got a pretty decent head of hair, but you know why? Because I prevent hair loss with keeps our sponsor this week. And let's face it, two out of three men are going to experience some form of hair loss by the time they're 35. More than 50 million men.

"Is like the first time you met Hogan, right? In person? Do you call? I don't know if I even met him. I met Vince down there for the first time in person. And we had a three hour meeting while TV was ongoing. And when we left, I had a job. At Stanford, moving to Stanford. So that was a little bit of a tricky deal. Sorry. Yeah. And then, hey, I lived there so many times. I kind of get used to it. Off and on off and on. So I was a very active renter in Connecticut. Unfortunately, but you may not remember you may not remember having met hulk that night, but you did call a match, he and Brutus beefcake defeated the Beverly Beverly brothers that night. You did the voiceovers with Bobby heenan for a WWF coliseum video release. So take a look at that. And it gets it. This is what they've been waiting for. I want to see the whole story. The beefcake is the weak link of the team because of his face. They got to take advantage of it. Beefcake space had to be surgically repaired after a jet skiing accidental. Someone's up in the air in her knees right in the head of the face. 5 times WWE have championed no one's done it better than him. He talked about losing weight and be quicker to be, I have a little bit more cardiovascular conditioning. He looks to be a very lean in the excess poundage. That's what I'm sure. Right, headlock by Hogan. Good shoulder block. Surprisingly good quickness here and over the front of the eye. And another time to the eye. We're caution to the wind as far as the wheels are concerned. This gets nailed. And the baby's best we breathe. The mega maniacs. Let him make that day. Well rested. That's a momentum here. And holding and taking away from you. With far side. Catches both Beverly. And the bee can't get elbow out goes up Blake Beverly. And Hogan just golf family that manifold. Referee to see it. I guess. I hope you're proud of your victory, you and beefcake. So real, real good victory. Thank you. I got one question. And I know you're not going to know the answer to this gem. There's no way you could possibly know the answer to this because this is your first night on the job in WWF. Your brand new you haven't met Hulk Hogan. Right. I know that feeling, man. You're kind of a fish out of the water. You know the business. You know the industry, you're confident in your skills, but you're in a brand new environment. But the first question I would have asked is like, who the fuck decided that Brutus the barber beefcake should be wearing pom poms on his hands? That was the singularly most stupid looking shit I've seen in a long time. Yeah, a little hokey. A little hokey, you know, he was just trying to keep up with hulk. Hawk's charisma was natural. BK had to manufacture his, and as we saw, it didn't, he sucked at that. It didn't do so well. You know what? And I know I shouldn't be like this, right? 'cause I try every day I get up. I try and I'm not saying this to be funnier. Give myself over, but I try to be a better person every day because I know I get a lot of ground to cover. I've only got so much time left on the clock. It is what it is. I'm 67 years old. I'm only going to be here for a certain amount of time. And I want to do the best I can at being a better person. And I try not to be critical of other people or judgmental of other people. But when it comes to Brutus suburb of beefcake, I am challenged as a person. I'm challenged. In terms of my goal of being a better person because it's very difficult for me to find anything positive to say about him. Other than professionally speaking, I think he's probably one of the most professional suck ups and ask users I've ever met in my life. It's as good as it gets. Well, you know, he took his friends well and I'll say that for him. You know, to be, to be the writing partner, either ride or die guy with Hogan. Wasn't a bad thing. For beefcake, I guess. He made a career out of beat a mooch. He was Hogan's. I guess it helps when you ride with somebody that's got that much influence. And Hogan did have that much influence. He went to visit, I wanted to do something. I want to do some tags. It'll be easier. And say, well, who do you want to work with? Well, I want to work with beefcake. Because you need beefcake was harmless. It was harmless. I was on the receiving end of the same conversations, man. I didn't want to hire Brutus. That's the last thing. It was a whole Coke and tax. There were certain taxes you have to pay. Hulk Hogan, you're going to negotiate a salary or his fee and then you're going to negotiate the taxes that you have to pay along with it. All right. You're right. There's a little bit of add on tax. Shall we say? And you had to pay it, or you didn't have Hogan. I looked at it. And you know what, Jim is much as the executive side of me and even the creative side of me wasn't excited about Brutus at all. Like, truth be told, I just, it was like throwing up in my mouth in a way. Yeah. But I kind of admired hulk in a sense and still do. Because he's very loyal, he's loyal, almost sometimes he's loyal to people he shouldn't be loyal to. And I learned that years later, of course. But

"We're listening to grilling with JR. JR is here. But I'm stepping in for Conrad Thompson. Conrad is just burning it at both ends and getting ready for sarcasm. And I thought, man, what a great opportunity. This will be for me to sit in with someone who I have a tremendous amount of respect for. What, you got a chance to work for, work with. And get to know over at least the last couple of decades. Yeah, the glass COVID decades. We're going to know buddy. Yeah. I'm going to do a very inadequate job of sitting in for JR, but Jim, because this is, you know, this is a cool topic. First really interactions with Hulk Hogan and how Cogan coming to WWE and there's a lot of stuff that we're going to be able to dig into, but man, I'm looking forward to doing this with you. That's cool. Me too. And I'm looking forward to doing this topic. Because as I mentioned to you before we started recording, I look at my relationship with the focus of a missed opportunity. I think I could have done a better job interacting with him, but you know, he's one of those he's one of those kind of one of those legend guys that won't come to nominator. I think some guys in that generation and the guys that get to his level, which are very few, was the fact that they don't trust a lot of people. This is where they're brought up. Territories don't breed comfort or security. A lot of Lion going on as we both know. So I never got around to building that relationship and I tried to, but it just didn't seem like it ever went through and so I just stepped back and tried to manage you know the best I could and knowing that he has some insecurities back issues, all those type of things. So it should be a fun conversation. I just wish I had let me ask you Jim before we go too much further and I don't want to get past this because you point out some really cool stuff there. Do you think, I mean, look, I get it. Guys that came up during Hogan's era and particularly in even more so before Hogan. I mean, it was a dog eat dog world. The territory system was doggy Dogg. It was promoter versus talent. Nobody trusted anybody. Everybody was trying to take your spot, even people you thought were friends were really not your friends when it came to the people that you worked with for the most part. So it was an inherently kind of a carnivorous environment. So that part I get, but do you think it might also the awkwardness between you and hulk might have also been the fact that prior to you coming to WWE and prior to hulk leaving WWE, what was then F, all kind of very one on one direct relationship with Vince. Right. That would make it hard for you or anybody to really kind of get between he and Vince. Do you think that had something to do with it? Oh, absolutely. You know, when he left, he had a different arrangement. He talked to the top guy on a regular basis and everybody said they hung out and they worked out and they went out and all those type of things. And I never had those experiences with bulk. The last thing he wants to do is see me in a gym. The last thing I want to do here is be there. So he used to work out with Brian knobs all the time, brother. He didn't care who he works out with. Especially in anti category. Me too. With Brian. What, guys? But anyway, it was he's an interesting cat. He's answering character. And here's the deal. Bottom line is he was a product of his environment. The territory system bred a certain distrust, so forth. And all he was as a product of that environment. And you and I have seen those guys come and go. That's what it is. And so I think this is going to be a fun show to do to do as we get real in here. All right, so let me ask you before we let's just start from the beginning, man. When did Hulk Hogan show up on your radar screen? When did you first hear the name? Hulk Hogan, see the guy on TV. Oh, that was during the big boom, and then in the 80s, Mr. T era, piper, you know, Paul orndorff, that big angle. It was when I first heard about him. I'd seen pictures of him, it was impressed, obviously. Hard not to be impressed with this physique and his look and all those things. And his success. So volumes. So, but that's when I heard about it. You know, he was tearing it up and he was drawing big money and of course, even before then, the houses that he drew in AWA burn. And you're old area. It was damned impressive. He was the guy who was selling the tickets and loading the wagon. I'm assuming I could be wrong. You're working for watts during this period of time? Yeah. All right, yeah. All right, now when I first went to work for vern in 87, now this is after hulk left Verne and jump ship, so to speak, that's the way it was presented to me. Walked out in the middle of the night, all that kind of stuff. So everything I heard from vern when I first stepped into the wrestling business was kind of like anti hall, kids. I hulked not because he wasn't a drawn out because he wasn't a great potential and a great performer, but because of their business shit. What was Watson's perception and therefore, what did you hear from watts about Hulk Hogan at the period of time? He was a big attraction guy. Watts ahead of this theory that guys like Andre, they were unique and special had a unique look. Unique skill set, some of those guys were better off better use sparingly. And they kept their value. They maintained their value if they did. So he thought that Hogan was that. He felt Hogan was a special attraction guy. He saw on special occasions. If he did it that way, it didn't overexpose him. He's going to draw a house for you. So bill didn't have any inherent, he's not a real wrestler. He doesn't ever wrestle with him. He's not an amateur. He never had any of that issue. I've never heard that from him. You know, I never heard that from him. The proof was that the box office. You know, you can reach about his athleticism or he's not a shooter and all those that bullshit. But I think what really turned Bill on that regard was the fact that Vernon's territory was the line at times. And on this occasion, it was just the fact that we got over. And cowboys always interested in what other territories did to get their guys over. Because their baby said they could pick up and use the JYD or some of his very faces of himself.
Wrestlemania 37 Review Special (Part 1) ft. Pro Wrestling Insider Shane Peacher (Ball & Buds Podcast Episode #14)
"It felt like the old wwf. You know where they would have the pre match interviews and they just did like a thousand one before the before the show. It was great. It was awesome. I was actually happy that the rain happened. So let's start from the top. And i know you told me to talk about this and i was gonna ask you anyways. How do you. Because you are the biggest cogan hogan fan in the world titus and hulk hogan forever pirates soups. What are you kidding. Me ho me. tease john. Now i love hulk you know that man that was ridiculous and i love the whole a guest host. I guess but i mean it's just so scripted in horrible but it was so tacking it was it was eight hogan and it was hilarious and i loved it anyways just because it was hawk. I'm biased though osos soobee. you're biased. I love to do though even though it was awkward as well like they really tried to force this pairing together and it was like really didn't need to do this right and then of course you know you. They forced it because of the whole inward situation. Because if you remember when it first happened in hall they let hawk come back like titus kind of had an issue if you remember if you remember that whole scenario so i think they did. I think it was forced because that which is awkward. And i think hilarious because although titus forgave. I don't think he forgets to say i heard that. China's said technically forgiving him. But i heard that he was also still feeling that obviously so i was really awkward but it was kind of funny to me and i'm sure well speaking of they let that happen. Also because titus was in tampa so they actually tried to prop him up in his hometown but biggie. They took the championship from. Why do wwf keep letting or keep wanting to humiliate the wrestlers by having them losing their hometown. Do they think that this is good. Because it's not no. I don't know if it's hometown thing. I just think if you look back after the fat none of the world championship changed and so they had to change the littler titles. I think that's really it. You know what i mean. Because how many mania is does a world title never changed especially nixon had to one for each show. You know what i mean you have the world title and then undisputed title. Neither changed hands. And that's rare for mania. You always usually have a title change Meanwhile when i heard it will trump ender explanation is. I'm gonna beat you so it sounds like a drum is like okay. These kids don't even know what the matches but it was just a weapons manage. You know why. Why why you know what i'm saying. I mean they had like a whole bunch of guys around the ding beating drums. And you know the exact same thing you know. Maybe the an open pit you know like the african wrestling. I don't know if you've ever seen it looks like we're like scooting around in dirt. Yes can you know single knees wrestling that whack. I know the the matches it was kinda. Get his get his turn to because kofi had a big wrestlemainia match aside from the tag team for when he went for the title. This is big east big match. But of course he's got to lose because he's in results were rating so far right now the only result i think that was correct was owens. This was correct if it wasn't in his hometown but

The Show Must Go On: Wrestlemania Is Still Happening
"In the WWE. That is we say what our jobs are. Every day is to put smiles on people's faces all over the globe and we truly believe that and then this time maybe more than any other in in my memory people need those smiles right now more than anything that's WWE executive vice president. Paul Leveque better known as triple h talking about the decision to move forward with this weekend's wrestlemainia thirty six. It's the closest thing to live sports. That's happened in a wild but with no fans permitted the arena and concerns over the safety of the wrestlers and staff. What will the showcase of the immortals look like in the age of Corona virus? I mean at times. It's Friday April third this. Espn daily Greg. You're ready to talk wrassling. Damn Right Excel it talking about sports with funny named people trying to punch each other in the face. Greg Luzinski is a senior writer for. Espn you can check out. Lapsed Fan's guide to wrestlemainia on. Espn DOT COM. Yeah actually I wanted to ask you think. Most people know your name from hockey. How long have you been on the Wrestlemainia beat my wrestling a Bona Fides? Go back to when I was a we child watching Hulk Hogan and the more cartoonish W. F. which really sort of capture my heart as you know through the decades there have been times where it's been okay to say a wrestling fan and then sometimes when they've you don't mention it to a lot of people. I think we're in an okay dimension it part of wrestling right now. We're sort of a necessary to mentioned it portion because there's nothing else going on and wrestling is somehow improbably still happening. How is this even occurring? Well the way it's been occurring for the W. E. and their competition. A W which Ariza. Tnt network is that they've been holding shows in empty facilities but for me that means holding their weekly television programs raw and smackdown at the W. E. Performance Center a training facility in Orlando and what they've been doing literally holding it inside of an Empty Gymnasium. I'm the game triple agent. I would like to personally. Welcome you to the. Wwe Performance Center now. This show will be different from anything you've ever seen before. Sit Back Relax. And if you can't forget about the world around you and let. Wwe Do what we do. Let us put a smile on your face to start. That was a little bit awkward because the wrestlers would come out and they would look to the crowd. That wasn't there and they would do all of the usual pantomime they would do to get the fans excited except there was no fans getting excited. You see it doesn't matter if there's ten thousand fans at their zero fans because this is how I I remember that can only way I could describe it as it's like when you're at chucky cheese and the animatronic band starts playing into an empty room. It's still playing. It's still doing. Its own thing. But there's nobody that Iraq to it and that was like the first couple of weeks of this and also they've been utilizing more space around the performance center lake attacks in the parking lot and stuff like that to try to make it feel more than just trying to recreate something inside of an empty room derailed. Me With that chucky cheese analogy this. It's the it's the rock afire explosion ban. Greg get it right. There's nothing better than being in an empty room with the rock afire. Explosion Band and just hearing the gears clunk together. It's jarring but also satisfying so wrestlemainia. Thirty six is happening on Saturday. What was the original plan for the event the original plan was to hold wrestlemainia? Thirty six at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa and this was going to be a huge event for those who don't know it's not just simply wrestlemainia. Inside of a stadium. It is an entire city being overrun by. Wwe events you have the Access Fan Festival you have the WWE Hall of Fame Ceremony. Where wrestlers of old honored and put into a virtual hall of fame. Physical building doesn't exist quite yet and then also after Wrestlemainia the next day on Monday. It's tradition to hold Monday night raw in that same city so this isn't just simply one event on a on a on a Saturday night for The city of Tampa. It was a whole citywide sort of celebration for wrestling as of March. Third The W. E. and Tampa's mayor said there were no plans to postpone the event the W. E. said look the health safety of our fans and performance of our top priorities. But we remain committed to hosting Wrestlemainia at Raymond. James Stadium fast forward to March twelfth. Now you have Hillsborough County's commissioner less Miller saying he'll probably have to cancel wrestlemainia if the. Wwe doesn't make the decision itself because of the virus pandemic governor Rod Santa's that points that cities and counties should cancel mass gatherings over the next thirty days and so it was becoming a worse than worse. Look for W. E. to keep wrestlemainia scheduled framing Jamie Stadium on March sixteenth. They made the decision not to have upwards of sixty five seventy thousand people come to a stadium during a virus outbreak and instead moved into their performance center in Orlando. It's a two night event April fourth and April Fifth. How has wwe justified or explained their decision to go on with us? Well there's the public explanation and then there's the assumed explanation that the public explanation according to the WWe is that it is for the fans the fans are the lifeblood of the organization it is a panacea the fans to be able to hold this event. It is going to give them some comfort in a time of confusion and trouble. It's also going to be arrested for the performers themselves who you know are looking for some direction or looking for some focus in life during uncertain times. And that's sort of the the public explanation for this. If you know about the wrestling business you know that part of this is the fact that story lines that are going to have their big payoff. At wrestlemainia are a month long process. All the story lines all the action. They all run through. Vince McMahon they are on one track. And they're going to stay on that track through hell or high water. These are storylines narratives that the W has been planning to wrap up in culminate at Wrestlemainia happens every year and then they kind of moved to new stuff after that so from a function process to have wrestlemainia occur and wrap up which are the signature feuds and storylines of their season. If you will was a pretty important thing was there any blowback to all of this. Yeah I think there has been some in the rest in wrestling circles amongst wrestling reporters and and amongst the fans wondering okay. We are looking around the sports world. We're looking around the entertainment world. We're seeing literally every pro league every concert tour Disney on ice everything canceling out of concern about corona virus and yet professional wrestling roles on as a weekly television product so there is a bit of confusion. There're two why this continues while every other facet of sports entertainment seems to have stopped. What about amongst the wrestlers did any of them have reservations about participating in this one particular did so wrestler by the name of Roman reigns one of the bigger stars and WWe had a very highly publicized battle with leukemia? He left in October. Two thousand eighteen returned to WWE IN FEBRUARY. Two thousand nine thousand nine hundred and he's compromised so news started to break recently through some of the quote unquote dirt sheets in wrestling. The ones who report the rumor. Innuendo that Roman reigns was not going to be participating in his scheduled match against Goldberg for the Universal Championship at Wrestlemainia. Wwe basically said hey look. This is understandable situation. The health and safety of our performers paramount Sakiz. The biggest name that we know will not be participating but quite frankly until we see what events they air this weekend we won't know who else may have decided to pull out or had to be quarantined or any of that nature because they're being very clandestine about what the card will actually be the first wrestlemainia. That's taking place over multiple nights. It's also the first wrestlemainia that is going to be completely pretaped. So when did they take this weekend's event and what steps did they take to ensure the safety of the wrestlers in the people working on it? It's been a race against time for me. As I mentioned the performance center is in Orlando Florida Orlando Florida. Recently issued a stay at home order March twenty sixth that really closed out all the essential businesses. Just like we've seen all over the country so the WBZ has been racing. It's time to not only record wrestlemainia matches but also record. Future television matches programming as well as far as the safety of the wrestlers. It is a closed control facility. Stephanie McMahon the daughter of owner Vince McMahon who is the brand manager for WWe said to variety. Recently there's extensive testing screening. When you first come into the facility regardless of whether you're a talent crew member or anyone else if you have a temperature taken and you have a temperature over a hundred point four degrees you're automatically asked to leave also any wrestlers de out of the country or in contact anybody who's been out of the country you're not actually allowed to enter the facility. Either so they are taking some safety measures as far as trying to make sure anyone exhibiting symptoms isn't allowed in the facility or anyone who might have been exposed to corona virus through travel or relationships isn't allowed in the facility. Which is you know what you see from other companies as well but obviously there's no way to be sure without Virus testing whether anybody actually has the center of city so they tape this before the stay at home order. Does that mean this is going to be the last big event like this or is this something they're going to keep on doing? There is a lot of sort of mystery as to how these wrestling organizations are going to continue to keep on doing their thing. I'm not sure what the regulations mean for the performance in Orlando. I don't know if this is GonNa be it for their use facility or not. I can't tell you that. Eighty w their competition with also filming inside of an empty facility in Florida's well and there was news this week that they're gonNA be taking their show to some undisclosed to record matches going forward so I don't know if it's GonNa be a shell game where these companies have to start going to the few places around the country that don't have restrictions in place or what have you. But it's clear from both cases that even though they're putting a bunch of their product in the bag right now in our taping matches and episodes for future use on television. The show apparently is going to go on
"hulk hogan" Discussed on The Double Dropkick Show
"So yeah the the answer to the question. What if the iron sheik had broken hulk? Hogan's leg we don't too. Many things have happened terrible episodes. I because we like. We're we're asking more questions they were answering and I think that's good is is it. Is it really good questions and you answered yes world payment. They've been asking more questions than yeah. This is this being recorded Oh so much. Hey Hey one thing we did on the last episode that we do need to mention because it didn't go out mark brought brought to. I believe this is a public service. All right so so this is we'll close with this because it may I'm. I'm tired. Mark Bald Mountain Dew. Zero Sugar Sh and brought him today. We're going to taste test. We did this during the episode. That's is not going to air and so a couple of days ago. When I first tried one I really liked it? It tasted to me tasted tasted just like mountain dew in the day. Since then is I've had more and then today it was confirmed that the mountain dew zero sugar taste just like diet. Mountain dew and Diet Mountain dew tastes just like a dog. But yes and my Pepsi Co. Mountain Dew. Whatever your company name is? You are wasting my time. You're you're wasting everybody's time you have just put out a duplicate soda and it is terrible. Yeah anybody's list yeah. Mountain dews zero sugar is one of the worst tasting so soft drink beverages. I've ever had in my life but I fully expected like again. I texted you I I say bringham would because when I tasted the first one house like Oh yeah but I think you know wh I had a soda in a while I could see that. You're you're still drinking it. That's what kills me. I'm so thirsty. I'm so thirsty today. For some re- leaves this after-taste. Yeah it almost leaves your tongue. No it's like your tongue is saying please stop saying. Hey.
Deep Dive into DevSecOps
"Joined by two of our finest A specialist when it comes to security joined by Rice ashamed I Russia as Ivan. Thanks for having me on board and pull the Hulk. Hogan's can I feel so. Let's do some quick interest to set the scene so racer. What's your role here at Amazon? So I am a devops. Security Specialists with data lists professional services and in my identity I would help enterprises I guess enhance their security posture. optimizes security posture secured automation and And yet just as migrating through their workloads to Ida Bluer basically optimize that process protested employed by yourself on a security solutions solutions architect and I help customers with security risk and compliance in the cloud and low conversations. I've been having recently around GonNa desiccation. How do eventually build applications more securely? So that is the topic of today is sick opposite. Because we didn't think that devops enough of a Buzzword we wanted sick in the middle but the good thing is uses with guest today we have we have pulled talks about it and Raisa. Who actually makes it real but you still have working there for a long time in terms of sharing a lot of the knowledge Asia and techniques and things at work in the field and things that don't work in the field you've done some really great talks on which will link to in the shots sort of persona by top tokes but maybe before even Donald J blitz talk about what what ease even copes? Okay I'm going to let you stop house pointing at Eupol arrogant okay. Well I'll go and you can kind of fill in the gaps Vilamoura with Villamor. I miss when I talk about desktops. Firstly the thing tell us you can't go and buy self cups. It's not a thing that you can kind of say I will install one of these and everything will be fine and it's kind of like it's it's Kinda like devops Realizing that security is a requirement that everybody has that is actually important to all people in an organization not just people love security and the title and when we talk about devops. It's a case of is the modern technology that's available in the cloud that helps us build applications more quickly something something that also helps us build. Applications better and better in terms of security is making sure that we doing design as possible. We're catching things things like before. We even get to production and then how do we ensure that the thing that we intended to build walls the thing that we actually bill and we can do that really really quickly. So we're trying to help people ship ship security fundamentally the position of the sick in the deficit cops is not accidental. If we think about wanting to Hamas more the developer and the the operational racial experience into one having security being pervasive is is really important. So rice ahead you say it from from your perspective of what customers are doing i. I guess I'll just go back a little bit so for me deb. cyclops is the capability that an organization have to ship securely and to move move fast securely. So it really does span. All across the people process culture is a really big one and then of course technology is what sort of all of that our help. Sort of Make that come to fruition right but but I guess for me when I sort of work with customers day in and day out I see a lot of the no in the people in process. I didn't love the automation. Actually ends up being in the people and process side and the technology components kind of exist in each of the teams with each of the parties involved. But it's kind of the integration. Point between the teams is where a lot of the automation capability really exists. So that's what I kind of worked with so almost automating the bureaucracy out of the system away exactly so but before we get into some detail. Let's let's look at outcome so it's one thing for us to stand here and say well you know you get to faster you can ship. It's all secure Blah Blah. What can you give us some examples of of what customers you've seen have achieved in terms of Tom Devalue speed to market cycle? Tom's we give feeling what good looks like. So it really does sort sort of span customer to customer and it really does also depend on the maturity of where the customer is apt. And that's key one for Say One of the mys- recent once in the morning. The most recent customers have been working. It has been national Australia Bank. They've kind of been a quite vocal about this. So in a in a lot of the capabilities we've worked with them on has been around Really accelerating this sick ops teams to be able to keep up with the development teams so in that case. Hey you'll see that a lot of the benefits come out in how fast they're able to react when Sort of vulnerabilities found or have thousands even detect the vulnerabilities ladies. And then also How they're able to deploy controls across environments at scale and that's been one of the key takeaways I think at least for Knob because because previously there was a lot of teams talking to each other say security operations will talk to security architecture to get something approved and then you know before that could do deployment? They'll we'll have to talk to the platform team to say. Hey access to all these accounts and I need these sort of role changes to happen But now basically all of the communication has been gone unlike has kind of disappeared. Because we've changed that all took event driven architectures income so essentially as soon as a team is ready That basically generates in writing event that another team can consume and then they sort of part of the process started so no. There's no talking in between teams anymore. and then what that enables is that basically works works it trigger for other teams through their deployments and and that changes sort of continues And so from time of fifteen to twenty days of doing wing deployments across controls across accounts then are down to thirty to forty five seconds. So it's very very rapid movement and completely taking away sort of people people in those integration points between the teams is cops relating example of where we we saw okay in the cloud everything's driven by and so we can order might the leaving dials out of it if we want to. But you have to Kinda culturally except celebrate and emphasize that so that you can have these handles be automated which is really only gets you from thirty days to thirty seconds isn't a hundred percent hundred percent polled. You WanNa make any comments on this. Otherwise must be easy bryson mixer like a really good point that it's it's enabling security people to do the things that they still need to do and the things that are important to an organization organization Trading situation where people are building applications so focused on it is Chelsea. Don't have to wait to and get a response from a security person. Typically there are fewer security people in inaugural developers. I was talking to a seven. They were saying that they were for every seven security. Thirty people dislike one hundred developers something of that nature. So if you've got a blocking processing the traditional security architecture flow is very mocking where somebody hands you a Dogra you draw fouls go and handed back and tell them. I've done something wrong. Rather than wooden capability which allows application team is to keep moving and make decisions which which appropriate for them because they know how the application works. Give them fast. They'd back give them event driven as mentioned Programmatic feedback so they can make some form decisions without having weight. Have without having to wait for human to come back and say oh you should have done this thing and I think that's the important thing there is. We're not. We're not actually saying dying. Don't check you don't chick things rushie saying. Be Really specific about what you're checking full and apply it without tolerance bicycle you. You're just saying e e it it's either going to be there and he gets the teak automatically or it's not going to get the tea and it's actually easier organizationally and culturally if you tell people upfront what you expect. So big part of this is the security oracle the risk org. I'm saying here are the things that I expect our organization Asian to do here are the things that are important to us. These are the security non-negotiables. These are the things that are actually appropriate for your particular application and to support me going. We need to encrypt volumes at rest. All we need to have certain network configuration. I'm going to provide a bunch of capability that will check that for you even before you've built in some cases and then that will enable you to move faster so we're trying to get from security is the department of no two securities enabling function.

"hulk hogan" Discussed on About to Review
"And so they did on demand release. Now, they're doing a physical release as well. So that is pretty cool. Tim, I need you to explain Chris Hemsworth. Yeah. This new project is going to be part of the inward is going to be fun. Yeah. No that's going to be into Bill. So Chris Hemsworth was cast as hulk HOGAN in a new bio pic? Yeah. He's been the hoaxer. Visually. Sure, especially if you look at like the first Thor where he was the biggest version, yet, the longest hair. I do not know about this movie. Here's the thing. A lot of people grow up imitating wrestlers. Of course was a big one. Randy savage was a big one. And so if hindrance was ever a fan of wrestling. I'm sure he's got in his repertoire somewhere a hoax impersonation impersonation. Yes. A whole movie doing that. That is it's a lot started till I. Yeah. Okay. But okay, I'm gonna I'm gonna raise a an issue here. Have this thing that you really this is going to be dark and Graham. I apologize. It. You shouldn't make a bio pic until they're dead. I'm like, that's the only thing and very rarely there's instances like maybe vice or when you're explaining a larger story. Sure, I get it. Whole HOGAN still alive. He still has a chance to screw up or do. Well, I mean like it's kind of it's difficult for me to take in a story like that. So most like I I don't want to jinx anything here. But like when they came out with our RPG, I was kinda like kinda got a wait till someone like died, then I didn't want somebody to die. So like it was conflicted with you. Because my things always when the person's still alive is only so much truth. They're going to right. So sort of handcuffed with land. You've got to come to the screening in see this. I mean isn't gonna cover that whole lawsuit. No, I would not know actually. So they did talk about how I to both of your points. I totally agree with the bio pic angle HOGAN is a producer on this movie. Oh. It's piece like this and even talked about in an article, and it should be linked below that this is pretty much only going to be x amount of time like his beginnings, his origin story roast atop a wrestling and change the game right profitable. And then our after like ninety six probably never not beholden retire from w. Everybody. So again, my very very limited knowledge of this, and Tim Damion, especially are are the experts like I do not even know if it will go into the end w like, I'm not sure if it will go that's that was that was one of the biggest moments ever in wrestling. Yes. Maybe it will end with that. Because again, like his retirement now, I actually predict that it's in be entirely about they making thunder in paradise nineteen super boat television show. The new pair exactly because that is a story that has put in so many other characters right? When we in the movies when you're doing rocky three when you're doing. Also is like, okay, so visually. So we're putting on our casting director hats. Now visually Chris as Hoke. I buy it. I can see that Chris can be a big do normally his pretty live..

"hulk hogan" Discussed on Izzy and Spain
"Again, HOGAN WWE hall of Famer hulk HOGAN, the legacy going to be just fine. A whole generation of wrestling fans grew up saying I wanna be like hulk HOGAN. He'll always be the hawks ter-. Lebron will always be the king. This isn't about that. This is about an act. It was great at one point. And now suddenly feels tired. This is about an act that we're watching for the Lakers and the Lakers are not just some little team. The Lakers aren't the Cavs. At the Lakers aren't the heat the Lakers or a franchise. The basketball is built around. They are a brand in sports that's global the Lakers of done this for generations. The Lakers had stars at the level of LeBron throughout time in the NBA. The Lakers have had Hoke in the seventies hulk in the eighties Holck in the ninety s HOGAN, the two thousands. They always have that superstar. Lebron isn't v franchise for the Lakers. He simply one of the pieces in franchise history that make the Lakers amazing to watch for so many people. And your act may go great when you're the one and only your act may be perfect when you're the guy everybody wants to watch. But there comes a point where suddenly, suddenly it's not that fun anymore. Mariah Carey Mariah Carey defined an entire generation of musicians. Right. Like, this whatever ten octave range. She could sing anything. Everybody wanted to listen to her everywhere. She goes she can be the biggest in the world. She could carry four puppies in fifteen different little Baggies. She can have an entourage wherever she goes. He can have seventy two limos as they pull in. And it's all okay because mariah's going to sing him will Mariah sings. It's all better. But then over time Mariah doesn't sing as well. She blames the track she blames the weather. It was the tree lightings fault. Not hers. She blames everybody, but herself. And eventually you look at it. And you're like, you know, what I'm still gonna listen to the entirety of mariah's library and say God. I just love it. I love Mariah Carey, and I'm still going to admit that Mariah. Right now that's blaming the Cup of tea is just a big barely trash when she thinks. She's just not good anymore. And all of a sudden, the diva things that you took as part of the charm become part of the problem. That's where we are with LeBron. I'm not sending him flowers..
Netflix Sets Title for ‘Haunting of Hill House’ Season 2 – Which Is Definitely Not About Hill House (Video)
"The hunting of hill house season two is in development. And we now know what it is going to be about Chris tell us about it. Yeah. There have been rumors that Netflix was interested in a second season. And at the time, it seemed kind of unlikely because the first season of he'll house wraps everything up pretty well and adapts one book and so on and so forth. But now we know there is a second season and rather than taking a traditional approach, Mike, Flanagan and Netflix. They're gonna turn it into an anthology series sort of similar to what AMC is doing with the terror. So each season is going to be a new story and while the first season adapted. Shirley Jackson's the haunting pill house season two will be adapting Henry James's the turn of the screw. Which is another classic ghost story. It's been adapted into a film into films. If you times before the innocence is probably the best example of this, very spooky black and white are movie. And this is really cool. I'm very excited. This I loved the haunting hill house per season. And I really liked turn of the screw. I think Mike Flanagan is very talented and undis- gonna assume because this is what I hill house. Did it's going to take a lot of liberties with the book because he'll house only really took like names in certain ideas, and then created its its whole like new thing. And I'm guessing that's what they're gonna do with this as well if they're taking that many liberties, why do they even need something to adapt with the second season. I mean, you know, there's brand recognition. I guess I guess it's also like a framework. Work because he'll house it borrowed ideas and frameworks stuff from the book. And I'm guessing this is gonna take that singer a framework where turn a screw it's about a governess who is hired to watch over to orphans, and she becomes convinced. The the mansion she's washing them in is haunted and the kids could see them. But at the same time, the book is very ambiguous in that. Maybe there aren't really go species. Just crazy. So I'm guessing they're going to use that formula where there's a woman who thinks house is haunted, but maybe she's nuts. That's what I'm guessing. They're going to use that as a springboard to create something new Jakup. I know you were a huge fan of this first season. What do you think of this news? Yeah. The first season's phenomenal. Mike Flanagan is phenomenal. I love this idea. I have not read the turn of the screw by have seen the innocence. And I feel that we have this idea the older horror films aren't scary. There could be spookier interesting. But the innocence is scary it holds up as a genuinely unsettling go story. Even though it's my God. Six years old now. So it's I'm very excited by this idea of with funding did in extent what Chris said is he took what Shirley Jackson was with the hanging Phil house and took two Matic core. And built it out in ways that were more personal to him or person was writing staff and transform those ideas into something that was passionate and personal to him as a storyteller. So like, I'm taking this. This very different goes story with very different ideas. And you know, remixing through his lens in the style of the first season that is incredibly exciting. And I am all for more. Great anthology driven hard to sounds like it's such. It's such a great idea to get more cool go stories in front of right

Jeff Bezos vs. National Enquirer could be a watershed
"The big news of yesterday is that Jeff Bezos went to war went to war with the National Enquirer now to be perfectly accurate the National Enquirer. I went to war with Jeff Bezos. Now, you'll recall the Jeff Bezos is the owner of both Amazon and the Washington Post, and he has been running gun battle with President Trump fort legitimately three four years now over President Trump's politics president from belief that the Washington Post is a smear machine against him. And so president from his revelled in all of the allegations about Jeff Bezos. And all of the new information that pizzas was cheating on his wife with his next door neighbor. And now they're gonna get a divorce and his wife is going to walk away with one hundred and seventy billion dollars or something. Well, now it turns out that the National Enquirer was trying to blackmail visas. They head of pain photos and text messages. Of Bezos, his crotch, basically. And then they went to be and they said we'd like for you to stop using the Washington Post to investigate us or these photos might unfortunately. Well, beezus then just basically said all right. Well, if you wanna play this game here, we go, and he just unzipped and put everything under the table. So yesterday in a very long post from medium dot com. He wrote. No, thank you, Mr. Packer it. There is something unbelievable about the fact that the owner of the National Enquirer is named Packer which led to the headline in the New York Post as well as the Huffington Post today. Beeson exposes Packer, which is a fantastic fantastic. Headline here is what Jeff Bezos posted. He said first of all just word to the wise. Don't blackmail a die worth one hundred and seventy billion dollars who also has the capacity to create two delivery for anything. Right and has drones like squads of drones that worked for him. It just to go very poorly, by the way, it turns out the main distributor for the national inquirer owned by Amazon dot com. Okay. So here's what here's what he says. Something unusual happened to me yesterday. Actually for me. It wasn't just unusual. It was I I was made an offer I couldn't refuse or at least. That's what the top people at the National Enquirer thought. They thought that because in of them to put it all in writing rather than capitulate to extortion and blackmail. I've decided to publish exactly what they sent me despite the personal cost and embarrassment they threaten AM, I the owner of the National Enquirer led by David pecker recently entered into an immunity deal with the department of Justice related to their role in the so-called catch and kill process on behalf of President Trump and his election campaign, Mr. Packer and his company have also been investigated for various actions, they've taken on behalf of the Saudi government and sometimes mister pecker mixes it altogether after Mr. Trump became president. He rewarded Mr. Packers loyalty with the White House Jenner switch the media executive. Brought a with important ties to the royals in Saudi Arabia at the time, Mr. pecker was pursuing business. There will also hunting for financing, for physicians that is from an article from I believe, the Washington Post federal investigators legitimate media have of course, suspected improved that Mr. pecker has used the Enquirer, and I for political reasons and yet AM I keeps claiming otherwise American media emphatically rejects any assertion that it's reporting was instigated dictated. Or influenced in any manner by external forces political or otherwise. Of course, legitimate media have been challenging this assertion for a long time. And then he has a list and sources he says I didn't know much about most of that a few weeks ago when intimate text messages from me were published in the National Enquirer, I engaged. Investigators to learn how those texts were obtain and to determine the motives for the many unusual actions taken by the inquirer, as it turns out there are now several independent investigations looking into this matter so lead my investigation, Gavin tobacco. I've known Mr. tobacco for twenty years. His expertise in this arena is excellent. And he's one of the smartest and most capable leaders. I know I asked him to prioritize protecting my time since I have other things I prefer to work on to proceed with whatever budget. He needed to pursue the facts in this matter perks of being billionaire. Here's a piece of context by ownership of the Washington Post is a complex afire for me. It's unavoidable that certain powerful people who experience Washington Post, news coverage or wrongly conclude. I am their enemy President Trump is one of those people obvious by many tweets also the post is essential and relents unrelenting coverage of the murder of its columnist Jamal shaggy is undoubtedly on. Popular in certain circles back to the story several days ago, and I leader advised us that Mr. Packer is apoplexy about our investigation for reasons. Still to be better. Understood the Saudi angles seems to hit a particularly sensitive nerve a few days after hearing about Mr. Packers apoplexy we were approached verbally at first with an offer. They said they had more of my text messages and photos that they would publish if we didn't stop our investigation. My lawyers argued that has no right to publish photos since any person holds the copyright to their own photos and since the photos in themselves don't add anything newsworthy. That is the case, by the way, the Peter Thiel and hulk HOGAN made against Gawker, and basically bankrupted Gawker AM is claim of newsworthiness that the photos are necessary to show Amazon shareholders that my business. Judgment is terrible. I founded Amazon in my garage twenty four years ago and drove all the packages to the post office myself today. Amazon employs more than six hundred thousand people. I went those results speak for themselves. Okay. Back to that threats publish intimate photos of me. I guess we me my lawyers and Gavin de Becker didn't react to the generalized start with enough. You're so they sent this. And then. Chief content officer he he pays an Email from the chief content officer of to the litigation counsel for tobacco about Jeff Bezos. And it says Marty I leaving the office for the night, however in the interest in expiating, the situation, and what the Washington Post poised to publish unsubstantiated. Rumors of the Washington inquirers initial report I wanted to describe to you the photos obtained during your news gathering in addition to the below the belt selfie. Otherwise, colloquially known as a bleep pack, the Enquirer obtained a further nine images, and then they described the images including including images from visas to his lover whose name is Sanchez and pictures of his crotch and all the rest visa says attention, but not in the way, they likely hoped any personal embarrassment AM, I could cause me takes a back seat because there's much more important matter involved here if in my position, I can't stand up to this kind of extortion. How many people can on that point numerous people have contacted our investigation team about their similar experiences with I and how they needed to capitulate because for example, their livelihoods were at stake? In the letters. I'm making public. You will see the precise. Details of their extortionate proposal. They will publish the personal photos unless Gavin to Becker. And I make these specific false public statements in the press that we have no knowledge or basis for suggesting that AMA's coverage was politically motivated or influenced by political forces. If we do not agree to affirmatively publicized that specific why they'll say, they'll publish the photos and quickly and there's an associated threat, they'll keep the photos on hand, and publish them in the future. If we ever deviate from the short, no real journalist ever proposed anything like what is happening here. I will not report embarrassing information about you. If you do X for me, and if you don't do X quickly our report, the embarrassing information, nothing, I'm at right here could tell the National Enquirer story is eloquently as their own words below and then he just dumps out all of their emails. So here is why this is relevant number one AM. I was being used to go between by President Trump during the campaign to pay off various women, and that obviously has been reported on the dot that has yet to be connected, and the one the media are jumping on here is this. Suggestion that President Trump both hates the Washington Post and used AM is the go between. So maybe the reason that AM I was going after Beeson is because visas was going after Trump. So basically, am I was frayed that Beeson was going to discover some sort of corrupt relationship between the Saudi government, and am I on the one hand in Saudi government and the Trump administration on the other and his corrupt triangle colluded together to go after Jeff Bezos? And then I tried to blackmail visas to that notion apparently Becker has now been telling reporters that he thinks that these text message, we're actually obtained maybe by a government source meaning that the phone wasn't hacked instead government. Data gathering allowed the Trump administration to grab the text messages. And then hand them off to AM. I obviously if that's true. Trump gets impeach right me. If that's true, then at the end of the road for the Trump administration using government resources in order to grab the text messages of your political opposition in the reports four you'll feel and then blackmail that would be the end of the line for president forget about impeachment. He'd go to jail. I mean that that's an actual crime for a variety of reasons. But beyond that they're trying to now connect that have not yet been connected. Nobody really understands why am I was going after visas? It doesn't make a lot of sense from going after visas makes sense in the sense that Trump doesn't like visas, but the idea that AM I was blackmailing Bezos to stop reporting about their connection with the Saudi government where they do that on their own if they're doing it on their own. It just demonstrates what we've already known, which is the AM. I is basically just a payoff organization and is used by various rich people in order to shutdown stories. They don't like also they blackmail people. Right. This is this is pretty well known all of this is going to come out. We're gonna find all of this. Because remember that David Packard AM. I are currently in a plea arrangement with the southern district of New York in the US district attorney for the southern district of New York. They're in a plea arrangement by which they are obligated to cooperate with the southern district of New York's if you think that all of this is going to stay secret. It is not I will say this all credit to beat us really like. I, you know, I'm a fan of Amazon, I think it's a great company. I was one of the first subscribers to Amazon prime I've been a member of Amazon says like nine thousand ninety eight but putting aside my own business interests in this journalist blackmailing people people blackmailing people, generally, he's really disgusting and trying to suggest that you're going to reveal personal information about someone unless they do what you want is not only a violation of law. It is a breach of basic human decency. So good for us. I mean the man can't afford to do it. And honestly, what does he have to lose at this point? Like people are going to see his his junk. What does he care? He's the richest man on planet earth. So what I did. He has the same junk everybody else does. And he's feeling the same way. So honestly good for be so good for visas should personal issues be used by journalistic purportedly journalistic organizations to blackmail. You the answer, of course, is no so good for for

He let the company know that he would be leaving after the may pay per view. And he even says, quote, WWF officials believe vicious was promised the main event spot opposite hulk HOGAN and next year's wrestlemania in Indianapolis as the lure to get him away. It appears WCW made some major promises to vicious besides just money in order to keep him. And there was some demoralization within WCW since the company did everything it could to keep the guy and basically turned down guaranteed money and probably the title in order to get a chance to lose to whole Cogan. So chat me up here. This is in the observer, which means that somebody told somebody that and I know you're gonna dump on it. But just play along for a minute.

"hulk hogan" Discussed on Cheap Heat
"And now he was gonna throw macho man through the middle, buddy. Takes out miss Elizabeth. We came back at a at a good time. Because now we reached a critical point in the natch because this this is really what? What precipitates everything we've alluded to before another. This is this is this is for you. Where you believe how Cogan really turns? He wakes up macho man, and he starts trying to help the very dainty the very injured miss Elizabeth. He's looking around macho man getting his bearings savage. Looks over at HOGAN, helping he points at HOGAN touching. Elizabeth doesn't understand what's happening starting to talk to him who Hogue is not even listen to be honest HOGAN near look at them. Never once looks back at ready savage.

He's confused. And now over looked here comes boss man with a kick to the back, finally, the medics finally the medical staff, and now you would think this would be now if all Cogan wasn't a bad guy in your opinion. He would leave her with the medics and come back to the ring right because in situations like this when when I responded arrived on the scene, you know, as a good Samaritan. Your inclination is to help a lot of time. But sometimes in offering your assistance, you you get in the way of the professionals, and you really make things worse at this point. He's just dragging the other medic at the back a little stretching can't keep up pace. So now, yes, Elizabeth is going to get to the ambulance so wherever that taking her to administer these services. But but it seems like Hogan's really in the way right now, they're taking her to the back to some sort of room. Obviously these are professionals wearing jackets that say medical services. They bring her to some sort of medical area HOGAN is helping moving her from one gurney to another now, surely he'll go back to the rain to help savage. Nope. Instead now, he's taking her hand in his and kissing it. And praying and praying the God. Now, I have a question. What is they're they're putting the blood pressure thing around her right arm.
