"And Christian is going to bring out the people's chair, which is the one The Rock, then it up with Goldberg's skull. He's going to nail Goldberg with a 6 chair shot to the head and 7 more chair shots to the body. Christian goes for a spear, but he misses goes into the cage and he comes up all bloody, and then Goldberg throws him into the cage a few times, hits the spear and the jackhammer and Meltzer says Goldberg wasn't nearly as over as much as people expected. Nobody to blame, but themselves. Well, why do we do the cage, and why do we do it with a very talented worker? Christians have very talented worker. Yes. God, in my AEW home, we're so blessed to have talents like he and Jericho guys that are, you know, that you know you're going to get a good to great match out of every time out. So why take a talent because I can tell you why? The reason that we did this cage is hot shoddy. And Christian wasn't over over to give Goldberg that big win and that's not Christian's fault. He's not booking. He's performing, so it was just a matter of his hotshot booking in hotshot booking more often than not fails. In case you haven't noticed folks or you have been following the business a long time, hotshot booking, sometimes you shoot an angle and it's a hot shot angle. Over the top, a lot of blood, a lot of violence, out of this, that and the other, which is some of my thinking, well, I love that. Well, what if you had it every week? Right. It's not special anymore. So but I think Goldberg got booked a little word. I'm looking for Kerr fuckery. You're fucking? No, that's a new one on me. It's kind of like awkward Cal and I start thing. So anyhow, I think Milton was right in as much as it Goldberg wasn't over in every market as much as we would have liked for him to be. Right. But that was the process of booking. That's why you do these TV shows. That's why you do these matches. But I thought doing a cage match and having so much so many chair shots and so much blood and gore was distracting to get Goldberg over. If that makes it any sense, but the star of the show became the gimmicks. And not the match. Man, learn something new every day here. Well, thank you, Connie. Yeah, listen, that's why we're here, man. Be sandwich. I'm for it. How about we meet each other halfway? Yeah, or the fuck would that be? What would that be? Mississippi, maybe? Piper's pit is going to see piper, start yelling at a fan, waving a U.S. flag. And Sean o'hair is going to throw the kid AKA Zach going into the ring. Piper accidentally pulls his prosthetic leg off. Mister America runs in for the save, and the two leave together, Vince was mad at piper, claiming the kid would probably follow lawsuit against the company. And then piper, he said the piper has a black heart and he wants him to face mister America. So here we go. In the middle of piper's pit, mister America. I mean, listen, it's a pretty cool moment for Zach gowan, who grew up a lifelong fan, and now he finds himself in an angle with Roddy Piper and Hulk Hogan. Also, he had wrestling training. Yes. He had worked. Yes. And I'm not telling you he was, he was a Jack Briscoe level. But he could take a flat back. And he knew how to sell. And he had that amazing handicap that he tried to maximize, started to turn it into a positive, which I admire him for that. When he took a hell of an ass weapon, I'll tell you that right now. He mastered, it's like the monkeys. They figured out how to get over. And that was a big like a rag doll. Government mule, if you will. And oh Zach got that down. He was good at it.

"Is that the biggest head scratcher at that point in your career? I mean, those edge scratch are always the biggest or not. I don't have a head scratcher list, I'll talk in my head anyway, but yeah, I think well, imagine if they tried to call the NFL without saying the word football. That'd be hard to win. The real heart is kind of awkward. It's kind of awkward. Yeah, I thought that was a step too far. I mean, that's just almost unimaginable. I mean, imagine asking an announcer in boxing. Okay, guys, now if you all say boxing, you're going to get fined from point forward. We're not going to have boxing matches. We're going to have entertainment. What? Brent wants to know. JR has often described the qualities he looks for in referees. How would he evaluate the work of the current referees in wrestling? Well, this crew works very hard and they get criticized a lot. Unfortunately, it's hard to call some of these matches and be not in the way. And to be in the right place at the right time. It's a thankless job. It's a thankless job, no doubt about it. Referees today have a harder time than their predecessors, I think. Simply because of the continued movement, and the continued spots, it's hard to get set. It's hard to get in your spot that you want to be in. So I think these guys do a good job. They're getting better. I can tell you that. They're getting better. You know, I think probably a good idea for all the companies to have little referee clinics from time to time. Just to go over the basics, you know, you see guys breaking, you know, you got a right handed, you got a right handed wrestler, who punches with this right hand. And now he got back in the corner, the referee comes to break up to break it up because they're in the corner in the ropes. And he gets in a referee gets on the talents right side. you're going to get this. I learned that early on. Of course, we didn't have any dental plans. You didn't want your teeth knocked out. So that's why I remember doing, I think it was Harley and maybe Jack Briscoe or somebody. They're both left handed. So I had to change my place. I had to go from their left side, which was their punching side to the right side, which was not their punishing side. So there's a science to it, but our guys do a good job. They work hard. They really do. But it is a thankless role to fulfill. When you started your career, you know, helping on that side. Eventually, you know, television became a bigger part, and I've heard part of the thing that you learn as a television referees to work three sides. Can you tell us about that? What that means? Well, you just don't want to block out the hard camera. Right. You just don't want to buck out the hard camera. And obstruct the view, shall we say? But once you get into the rhythm, you don't even think about that. And you got now you got more cameras. I think working the camera was more important when they were like two or three cameras, obviously. Then there were there is now, where you got so many cameras, you shouldn't miss any shots. Right. You got great coverage, you know? So it's a little different ball game. You've got more toys to play with. And in this particular matter, but these guys do a good job, you know, there's some referees, I think, are better than others. But that's just subjective. I could be wrong. But I think overall, which one thing it starts with me is their effort. And they're trying to get better. But it's hard to, these matches especially in AEW, challenging to call. You think there should be like a referee school, you know, what we see that there's lots of wrestling schools. I don't think there's just a traditional referee school, is there? I don't know, that there is, I think, you know, you could do seminars, stuff like that. I think more of those is good. Maybe you found a star. You know, they've got to be in shape. They can't look like a tub of goo. They got to be able to get up and down and move around. Be athletic. Quite frankly. So our group's getting better. In AW, I'm out of this referee. They do a good job, and it's just the fans are very coarse sometimes. And as if they've got experience in the field, they don't. So, it is important job, and the seminars are some, I'd be interested in doing a referee seminar someday down the road for the right money. Oh, you would do a referee seminar. Yeah. Why not? I love that. I referee for a long time, and I, that's how I started. It gave you extra the reason I got so motivated about being a referee was that the fact that I, that was on my mind all along, but it was a

"Respect that. I would do it too. You know what I mean? Also just, you know, I get a belt, I put it right where the production truck is. I'm not carrying those things around. Yeah, yeah. But just so you know too, what they have in WWE now is the TV belt like Dan just said, that's the one that's polished, it's shiny. You leave that at the arena, leave that with the production truck. But then you have a house show belt, sorry, a live event belt. And this one is the one that you carry with you. It's a little bit more beat up, but it's the one that you use on a day to today basis. And then the moment you lose the belt, literally if Eddie and I are wrestling and I'm the champion. He beats me. He takes the belt and that's it. You don't ever see it again. Unless you get it against. That's literally like a relay race. You take it, he takes it, she takes it, and that's it, done. No ceremony, no pomp and circumstance. No certificate just gone. And there's no ceremony when you win it, right? The hotel with the pizza. That's right. Read his book. All right, I love old wrestling stores. I got to tell this one. I mentioned Barry Windham, who's maybe the greatest in ring performer of all time. He was amazing. So everyone. So he had a run in Florida back when I was in high school where cowboy Ron bass and him were feuding. He loses a loser leaves town match, comes back as the yellow dog. He's got this all yellow tights and a yellow mask. And he's fighting over the saddle from his dad. Blackjack Mulligan's horse sat on that Ron bass stole. So Mario Chris the ball is the head coach of the university of Miami hurricanes. He grew up in Miami, monster pro wrestling fan. He loves pro wrestling. He told me that when he was like 13 years old, his older brother was like 15, he used to beat his ass on a daily basis. He said he came home from a show at the Miami Beach convention center where he saw Barry Windham. When the saddle back and he's all pumped up, he said, maybe if I make myself a yellow dog mask and put it on, I can beat my brother. I'd be sad he took a yellow T-shirt, made a mask, cut some holes, went to his brother's room and said, let's go. And his brother beat the shit out of him again. That's Mario story. I think it's pretty cool. The first title of the road warriors ever held the national tag team title in 1983 from Georgia. Championship wrestling. Free birds held that. They actually feuded over when the free bird split up and Michael Hayes at Otis is drunk as his partner and Terry Gordy brought in Jimmy snooker to be his partner and they fought each other over it. But on the road warriors held out a ton of times. It's amazing too though. It's got the confederate flag on the side. You couldn't use that anymore, right? That's kind of the canceled. But that's amazing. Once again, it's just a little, you know, black type thing. It's very thin and basically just screwed onto this piece of leather, and that's it. It's interesting. And that's what Dave milliken said that Reggie parks. Parks was the original belt maker in the 60s and 70s, and he was like, Dave's mentor. And he said, he goes, would you put a shitty frame on the Mona Lisa? No. So he said that the belt part is the most important part of any belt that reads your Dave makes because that's the frame for these beautiful pieces of work. So they were very, very strict on making sure that the leather was just as good as the one of my favorite belts of all time is the old mid Atlantic United States title. Pictures of flair with it. It's got the actual outline of the United States on the belt. It was red, right? Yes. And I wanted it so bad. It had the red, the red leather, which back then, the only other title that had, it was Jack Briscoe's NWA title like in the 70s. So I finally tracked it down in sergeant slaughter had it. And I had lunch with him, and we retained it was going to see was talking about selling it. He was interested in selling it at the time. And he said, you're going to love it. It's in such great condition. I just had it re leathered. And I'm like, what do you mean how to reload there? And he's like, yeah, it's black leather. And all of a sudden, I was like, I don't want it. And I didn't buy it, and I kicked myself, I wish I did now. But it was like, like you said, it's such an important part of it. I like the first thing I do when I get one of these is I smell the leather, you know? It's just like, I'm weird. But like you're not. Well, yeah, yeah. Come on. You walk around this cruise. This is the only
