"I do believe that there's some people who are wondering who the heck you are and I do want to fuck you. You have to talk about I I I. I've heard that now I will say we've got some. We've got some emails in and We're GONNA get phone calls and they're plenty of people excited to talk to you today and ask questions But I I do for the way background because WWF the WWF wwe. They've gone through a lot of announcers over the years. You were there at a pivotal time and your face is going to start showing up more and more often. WWE Network Archives get added. But you got your start in pro wrestling in the AWA. Ken Do you mind. Just is giving a little bit of a background about how you ended up in the Awa and kind of work your way to The timeline of WWF. And I know we've got some stories about that. Vince McMahon job interview. Oh sure no I'll be glad to wait I was actually doing the sports on the six and ten o'clock news at the NBC affiliate in Rochester Minnesota. Although I kinda commuted still lived in the twin cities and in the mid eighties here in Minneapolis Saint Paul. There was a huge celebrity. Golf Tournament called Duff Celebrity Golf and tennis tournament and I mean they got so the the real a listers. One time they had the cash cast from hillstreet blues they had the cast from Mash so it was a national type celebrity tournament and I had been involved with it before I got started in television and they had an area at the tournament called celebrity corner where they would have someone you know. Bring up the the national celebrities onstage and interview them and talk to them so the crowd could listen and get to know. Oh them a little bit. I on a personal level and I was doing that one year and one of the guests we had was vern Donya on you and I did a thing with burn for about fifteen or twenty minutes and then saw him later that night in the clubhouse and you yeah we talked for a couple of minutes and he wanted to know a little my background and you know I told them and where I was working now and and that was it and about a week and a half later. I get a call at the television station. Rochester and the switchboard operators. Just going crazy. She goes. I don't know if this is true. But there's a man wants to talk to you and he says he's Verne Ganja and you know I took the call and realize it was vern and he said when are you going to be up in the city's next and I told him I was up all weekend. He said how about would. Would you like to have lunch on Saturday. which we did we spent some time and he said what would you think of coming to work for me? And that's how I ended ended up starting in the AWA I. How much of a wrestling fan were you at that point? What kind of experience you had with pro wrestling fan and in the level of interest that you convey I I mean I was a wrestling fan as I think you know you being from this area that that was the real heyday of the AWA? I mean in terms of the crusher and mad dog Rashawn blackjack Lanza Lanza Nick. Bach Winkle Bobby Heenan The the road warriors so I was a wrestling fan in that. When I was around on weekends I certainly would would watch all star wrestling on television and had gone to a few of the shows so I guess the easiest way to put it away? I was a fan I. I wasn't a fanatic. You know coming in you know I. I knew who the baby faces were. Who the heels were you know who are the big names? It's you know I. I certainly had name recognition and and facial recognition so. I wasn't coming into a ice cold but at the same time it was one hundred and eighty degrees from you know doing sports on the six ten o'clock news. Oh Oh Yeah I mean all that by road warrior. Hawk is quite different than sitting behind a desk or going to a local basketball game or or that kind of thing man. What commission exactly? Yes absolutely Oh I was just going to go to Scott passenger who Emailed and said he had a question but apparently I didn't get to in quite quick enough so i WanNa know our phone numbers. If you WANNA talk to. Ken resnick. The phone number is six four. Six seven two one nine eight two way that has six four four six seven two one nine eight two eight. I'm Ken when you when you signed with Awa Or started working for them you were. It was the midst midst of of a pretty big wrestling war. Gene Oakland in institution in the Awa especially in the Saint Paul Minneapolis area or aws based A Ah very popular figure and and and kind of the face of the company more than Joe Biden crusher. How did you were you aware of the pressure fresher face the day that you showed up in gene? Oakland wasn't there D Don't shoulders well to correct you. When I came same gene was still there and you know I was actually fulltime? I was working in the office as well so the plan was us for me to to. You know. Spend a couple of weeks which I did you know during the interviews just watching gene and then I started off doing the the smaller markets. Like if I remember the first interviews I did for were stationed in in Lacrosse Wisconsin. So Oh that was the plan that I was going to kind of be a backup and learn you know the I mean I knew television was fine in front of a camera. You know more than intimidated but to kind of learn that way so gene was still there for a few weeks and then all the sudden gene was just gone he left in. I was the guy so at that point. There was a lot of pressure and also so from the fact that the the wrestler's talent really didn't know me yet and there wasn't a trust built up And I was very lucky in that having worked in really work more closely with blackjack Lanza who also worked in the office. Jack Kid Kid be kind of told them. Hey this guy is okay you can trust him. Yeah he's not out to show you up he's out to put put you over so that part came came very quickly but I know in my mind I said to myself. I can't imagine what might have happened. Had I not been. They're not talking about myself but had gene just just up and left and someone have been throwing into that where you know just from the get go and I mean it was very difficult for me. Ah But I was lucky in that I was able to learn from the likes of Jack. Lanza Nick Back Winkle and Bobby Heenan and and I remember when it all happened sitting down with Jack and I never forgot the two best pieces of advice anyone ever gave me came from. I think it was Jack and Nick Bach Winkle together when we were talking Jack Acces. Let me give you tell you two things. You're following Gene Oakland. which is pretty big shoes to try and fill so be yourself be? Ken resnick. Dole's try and be gene Orland and the other a piece of advice which I never ever forgot he said to me you know what the best way to get yourself over in. This business is with with the boys and the fans and I said no tell me he said the best way to get yourself over is. Don't try and get yourself over uh-huh and those were the two things where wherever I went and even other shows that that I did you know years later I I never forgot. It always remembered those two things and when I was getting ready to tape whatever I was doing I always repeated those things in my mind right before we started searching for more great pro wrestling. Talk and join me. Jason Powell host him to flee weekly pro wrestling boone own podcast.

"jack lanza" Discussed on The GM Shuffle

"You were not expecting. I mean listen on any given Sunday anything can happen. I get that. But the Falcons defense with an inspired effort. They sacked your breeze. Six Times. New Orleans didn't score single touchdown and maybe there's something about division match ups here. Mike Atlantic gets up for a game against Orleans. A snap the Saints Six Game Winning Streak Matt Ryan Twenty Thirty Five I for one eight one two and a couple of touchdowns for the saints finished with just three hundred ten yards. It's well below. The average of three seventy five is really just divisional matches because Atlanta certainly looked. Inspired up there Dan. Quinn was fired up on decent. Today I was talking about. Hey I would take the falcons in the thirteen and a half. Because I thought the Falcons would back door cover right. I never thought the Falcons would be able to hold the saints for Three for twelve third out and over three on fourth down. I mean think about that. That's remarkable right. I mean this Falcon Defense can't get any pressure. On the quarterback they had sixteen passes broken up the entire year. They can't even get their hands on the football. And yet they turn this thing around and they just stoned it and I think the hard party people think when you have a by people think that you know it gives you chance your team regroups. I think you lose your focus a little bit as a team and I think that the saints went away on their Bhai because you have to give the players four days off. They kind of read their press clippings they thought everything was okay. They're coming to play a SHITTY team like Atlanta. You know and it's not going to be that hard and we'll just we'll turn Alon whenever we need to and they got themselves caught and like you said in a divisional game these things really matter. I mean I don't think people from the northeast understand the rivalry between LEAN ATLANTA NEW ORLEANS. It goes back to when they were in the old. NFC West remember when when when the NFC west was Atlanta New Orleans San Francisco and the rams how that was the West. I I have no idea but those are the four teams right. This is years ago right this when I first started league Atlanta was in the West. This is Chris Chandler days. What era it was way back? Get Chandler Steve Barkovsky. They played the West. I mean they played San Francisco twice a year. This is a real rivalry but that game is like a college game. There's a lot of because because the cities are so close to one another and it's such a southern thing it's a rivalry game and I think obviously Atlanta played up and I mean Dan Quinn. Take your hat off to him. I mean his defense. Finally Allie showed up and played a decent game. The Sean Payton said last week if you go back to the history of its matchup regardless of records it's always been a one possession game or a score game overtime or field goal game and I'm expecting the same thing this weekend. So he was not surprised as by this result and I wouldn't be concerned about the saints. Either Mike. I'm with you. I just think he'd come off a bye. Hi It's division game you lose. It doesn't give me pause and sincerely about New Orleans. They just got beat. They got beat badly New England. I think this is the best thing that happens to him. Because Sean will be on a tangent. He'll go completely lately beserk. I mean there's so much I feel bad for who they play next week. I mean I don't know who they have. I don't have the top of my head but next week. They gotta play somebody and it's GonNa it's GonNa be a challenging game for them because they're gonNA come in and I think they're obviously you know they're going to be ready to play that game and they've got to play at a higher level. They play the Tampa Bay bucks down to Tampa. And that's another one of those that that always give the saints a lot of trouble going into Tampa Bay. Now I think this week Sean. Scott their teams full attention and he'll be able to get them. But you gotta take your head off to Atlanta Atlanta. They fought the whole game. They fought in there and they did a great job. Sean Payton is going to be like Alec Baldwin in Glengarry Glen. Ross the good news is you're fired right. You got your attention now. Yeah if four remember therapies surprises your prize is. You're fired second price. Steak knives holds up the steak steak. Ah I drove here in BMW. You drove here in Honda. I one of the great scenes of anybody. WHO's listening to this podcast? You should go to youtube and just YouTube glengarry Ross Alec Baldwin I mean there's some incredible Allen Arkansas Senate Jack Lanza put that coffee down coffee's for closers it's the best. ABC always been closing always be closing. And unfortunately the saints weren't closing. They were always not closing during at speaking at closing. Here's one I'm shocked by just how good they're playing as a team. I say by the result because I think you and I both the rams are kind of up and down but the fact that the steelers others are on our run. They've won four games in a row. They forced four turnovers. What's kind of an America Fitzpatrick back? He's had a huge play. This time a forty three or fumble return for a touchdown they win ugly seventeen twelve as they beat the rams now by the way good luck to L. A.. Trying to chase down Seattle San Fran. NFC West Gotha. Just twenty to forty forty two forty three yards zero zero completions at Cooper Cup as the rams went one of fourteen third dance. You mentioned New Orleans. third-down have a one of fourteen a third down for the rams as steelers. Come up big. How would you like to be flying home tonight on that airplane for the Rams and no one you just gave Jared Goff one hundred eighty millions? And you can't block anybody with your Offensive Front your best player Andrew Whitworth. I just got his ass kicked in the game. I mean I I mean look. I thought the steelers should've lottery protected. Amaker Fitzpatrick Patrick. I thought it was not going to be worked out. The guy's a ball Hawk for some reason I mean it's just whether it's it's serendipitous or whatever it is but the ball just seems to come around the kid I mean in some of the place he made and look. I don't give a crap with anybody tells me if you think golf is GonNa win you a super bowl. You better think really long time because at shit ain't ain't going to happen and that offensive line is bad bad bad and all the magic around Sean. mcvay is coming out because he can't hot. Everybody knows what's going on. They all know and without Brandin cooks cooks in the game. There's no threat to go down the field. There's no threat that you're worried about. Who's going to make a big time play on you and that's the real issue? I think they can't block upfront. And they're stuck in the salary cap. They got so many top heavy players Blake bortles made an appearance by the way did I. Did you know that. Yeah exactly shocking. So good but this a bigger your issue here you go into Pittsburgh four point favorite. Everybody you know. We talked about this week. The line was almost trapped into thinking. You should go there today when when I did almost eighty five percent of the money on the rams so the reason why they bill those towers like the Borgata Hotel and the sands it is because of this it is unbelievable. It's I mean it's unbelievable right and I would drive me crazy. I watched Pittsburgh and I'm like how are they winning winning. I think. Mason Rudolph is atrocious. I don't even think he's good. I think we make excuses for him. Like I don't even think he's very good and yet he ends up twenty to thirty thirty eight for two forty two. You know I mean James. Washington is six ninety. I mean James Washington and he fumbled one play. I mean they were getting ready to go in and score again. Is it coaching Eh. Mike Tomlin is Mike Tomlin takes a lot of shit you know. I think he's one of the great press conference guys of all time. I think he's one of the great motivators I mean. He's pay per view at at a press conference. I mean he's got some of the best lines of all time he's going to be one of the greatest podcasters ever right. I mean he's unbelievable but you gotta give the Guy Credit. I mean what he's doing. He's winning with his defense. He felt like Fitzpatrick was missing. Link he had a half he got that in the back end. They're playing zone the rush upfront. They don't even have Stefan Trud and their defensive front what they're attacking people with their front. I mean to beat the rams like this. It's unbelievable it's really unbelievable. I mean if you're the rams you're going home tonight say wait a minute. We got a hundred and eighty whatever we paid this guy and we lost and by the way that trade for Jalen Ramsey looks even worse right. Because you put all your chips the table you said you were a super bowl. Contender is white. You're not wearing the division this year. You've looked to cookies. Your you went all in. You think you've got a great hand and you're looking at the cookies and I know you don't have a hand brutal and now speaking of Delusional we present the core of the week courtesy of Ryan Pace who still starting his car. one leg out the car door Chicago bears. GMO Mitch Trubisky via WB B. B. M. newsradio other young quarterbacks around the League are going through at the same thing honesty. We're proud of the way Mitch is handling it. You see it within games right now you sought in Philly. It was really a tale of two halves. The Bears Detroit Twenty to thirteen and ryan pace feels vindicated to quote frank. Pantano Frankie five eight lies lies lies lies lies lies lies. They're all is sure. I mean seriously I mean this is delusional. If you're a bears fan don't you feel like completely depressed when you read when you read this. Yes I think so. First of all today I mean if they're playing anybody else other than Jeff Driscoll and look let me tell you something. They got their asses luckier and shit to win this game. I mean gene drifts throwing the ball in the end zone to send the game in overtime. I mean they got a chance to win this game. I mean trubisky throws twenty three times for a buck seventy three sack five times and and I look I called. I said he was going to have a good game against them. Got Three touchdown passes no interceptions. Basically Eighty one yards rushing one hundred and seventy three passing and they barely could. They were horrendous on third down. They can't throw the ball down the field right. They were to for twelve on third down and they won the game and paces actually thinking he's doing good. This is Matthew Stafford plays his game. I mean the way the bears the bears defense couldn't put any pressure on the passer. I mean it was really bad. I watched this whole game. They had a hard time. Really putting pressure on Driscoll Driscoll moved around a little bit. He got sacked twice in the game but for the most part I mean you know they really didn't and on the two minute drive. They had a chance going down the field. He couldn't do it. It was unbelievable like at some point when this pace honest like your what do you watch. What young player? There is doing what trubisky's doing like nobody has a lower rating than he has like. Tell me what young quarterbacks do are the ones who aren't playing. Yeah it's literally the you know when you. I know you've made a mistake. But you have that one opportunity you feel like you can boast a little bit. That's pace is doing eight played golf today. Even though as you point out Detroit secondary so porous. They did not have their starting quarterback there this this was a victory that was gift wrapped you. It's almost should be like half a win. Rather than a full win for trubisky. Yeah no I'm exactly. It was one of those. If you don't take this one you're never going to get one and I think this there's this thing and I'm going to write about it on the daily coach this week. I think people don't really understand that at all. It's called the domino effect. And what it means this is the domino effect is simply since I own it. It's worth way more to me than it is to anybody else okay. So it's next step depth of confirmation bias so since I've owned it right like if I have a car and it's my car I'm not trading it in because I own it it's like it's an endowment effect. I have and this is what he's doing. It's the next step after confirmation bias. Okay I own it so therefore it's gotTa be good and he won't admit it and Ted Phillips if you're the president of the team you gotTa we do something and step in this guy's delusional you might want to call a couple of people in Vienna and say hey. I think we ought to come over here. Talk to this kid. He's not watching the same thing. We're watching. He's completely delusional. I mean he's New York giant delusional. This is where you get to New York giant Delusional speaking of Battle New York today. How jets stooges horrible? All teams existed. Tough I think you know. The giants have sunk to levels that. I truly think the giants have gotten to the same point that that Jed York got to in San Francisco when it got that bad out there for him and he said you know what I can't do this anymore. I can't try to mask it. I'M GONNA have to change completely and get back to get let somebody come in here. Somebody new somebody come in here and help me run this because this shit ain't GonNa work. Here's what happens for anybody. Listen to this. Here's what happens when you lie to yourself when you lie that you think Eli is good for two years and you convince yourself you can build your team around. You're lying to yourself. So there are two two years behind in their whole rebuilding program. It started with Eli and now you know they draft Barkley the second pick us..

"jack lanza" Discussed on Something to Wrestle with Bruce Prichard

"Order when you go to solid go pet dot com slash wrestle that solid gold pet dot com slash wrestle. We'll talk about the The comment that the magazine and the TV need to look a little more. Like in the minute I I do want to ask. When when he describes you sort of running this rough draft over to events he says you have no spalding? 's and that you're one of the many yes man that vincit surrounded himself with for decades your response. Well I would have to go back to the fact that a it was there that long and be the fact that Vince McMahon and I usually disagreed on most things especially when it came to the business and creative ideas ideas. And that's why I stayed around for so long because I did disagree with this. However if he considers that after the two of US argue it out and the owner of the company? Your boss says makes a decision whether it's your idea or his idea. He makes a decision in a direction to go. I supported Vince. McMahon and I supported the boss wants. He made that decision. So that's being a yes man then. I'm yes man but I fought tooth and nail for my ideas years. I fought tooth and nail for other people's ideas with vents. But once you leave the room in a decision is made. You don't go behind people's backs and say like well you know what. Hey I had this idea and the old man hated it. But I'm in your corner buddy. That's not what you do you go out this. This is now our idea and this is what we're going to do and it doesn't matter what your ideas are. Vince is idea was what matters is the idea. And the direction action that was decided upon and move forward. Rousseau wrote that eventually McMahon started a call carve off more and more responsibility. What's ability including ham producing the localized promos for the individual talent? And he says before he was able to produce talent. Vince wanted to Put Him with blackjack Lanza sort of maybe a bit of a mentor of how to handle the boys. What's the strategy putting together an old timer and the young upstart like Doc? This well Jack. Lanza had been the one that had been in the in the rooms working with talent on a daily basis for the localized is interviews. And Jack was that longtime producer. So you've got to learn what the hell you're doing. Rousseau never produced television in his life he had never produced talent in his his life. So he's got to learn somewhere. And that was the starting point for Rousseau to start learning how to work with talent and how to produce talent works for television best so put them which Act Lanza of in that framework so that Rousseau could start learning Russa's pretty complimentary to some of the legends in the business who are helping the company in a backstage capacity at the time whether it was bob back land or chores. Animal stealer even Dutchman tail but I found that sort of interesting because he comes after you and even Jim Cornet for saying that you have these antiquated ideas. But he shows so much respect to these other legends. How do you reconcile all that? Well I think that they were different. We were probably a lot more outspoken Okun than the legends. If you will it we were also kind of the same age group. So the fact that we weren't his elder her Probably he had less respect for that. But the fact that I'd been in the business since I was ten years old. Same thing with Jim Cornet. We had a lot more experience and a lot more tenure in the wrestling business than he did. But it was a difference of opinion in my opinion More than anything anything else eventually. Russo starts to feel like the company is a bit of a sinking ship. He describes the fake razor Zor and fake diesel. I Dunno shenanigans as rock bottom. And he's so frustrated with this. He Calls Kevin Nash to see if maybe the spot for him in. WCW Rousseau's working without a contract here. So he eventually has a conversation with Eric. Bischoff where he just asked Eric for an opportunity. And Eric offers a seventy five thousand dollars a year position but before accepting. He wants to at least have a conversation with Vince. And thanks. Maybe I should try to have like a warm-up conversation with Linda just sort of feel out the process in the middle of that mating. Vince walks in and says that Rousseau is selfish. When do you remember hearing about Rousseau maybe testing the waters in WCW? And how did McMahon. Explain that meeting to you. Well it was 'cause again as you said Rousseau testing the waters and that that angered Vince McMahon Employees which Vince Russo was. We didn't have contracts so if you were an employee you were an employee and you didn't have to have a contract Pretty much you could leave of your own volition or if you were fired. I don't believe we had any non competes. We didn't have anything at the time so Russo was tested those water seeing if there was something else out there. I don't know that I guess you would know a lot better From talking there at Bischoff if indeed roussel was actually offered a a position I. I don't know that to be true but I do know that it. Anger Vince McMahon that he was leaving looking before he came to Vince. McMahon said hey is there something more I can do. Let's fast forward. Of course Russo doesn't leave he sticks around and by March of ninety seven raw magazine Israel hitting its stride and he calls a meeting. He being Vince McMahon Pronouns Pal and in front of everyone says that the show sucks and the show should be more like this and slams down the latest issue of the raw magazine and Russo would right with that one statement. I rose above all all the creative brass sitting in that room. He would continue man. I looked into the eyes of Pritchard. Ross and Cornet that day and I've never seen such hatred. They had to be thinking thinking. How did this guy pull this off? I'll tell you how by being honest and not playing anybody to get there by own merit and by just playing the game aim smarter. Do you remember this meeting. And what are your response. What is your response to Rousseau's comments here? That he was just better in the he had one the. What did he win? And again I go back to. You know if he's playing games. We weren't playing games. We were doing our job so it wasn't about playing games and I remember that meeting vividly the shows did suck and it was also at a time where I was looking for someone to come in and help us and Vince. Russo was one of those people that I was pitching for to come in and help us take some of that burden off of us to throw some fresh ideas in in there. Okay not the traditional wrestling ideas not another old school wrestler. Want somebody with a completely different outlook. which rich Russo had so I saw that and he did have a completely different outlook any sometimes? His approach was a little rough. But that's okay to by was as well but looking at him with hatred there was no hatred there at all it was okay. Great whatever for it is whatever it is to get Vince off of the fans and to get some change and get something different. Going is is good. I like when people talk about well. WHO's idea was okay as my ideas? His ideas her idea doesn't matter if it's a good idea. It's a good idea if it's a bad idea. It's a bad idea you ask. What did he win? Rousseau wrote that he won. You're spot on the booking committee because you were out out at that point and you were since talent relations. So Vince McMahon's dining room table. Had Vince McMahon. Jim Cornet and Vince Russo. All I did win my spot in any way shape or form. Let's talk about facts. Okay and what took place at the time. Jj Dylan Dillon. Left the company abruptly. Jj Dylan was vice president talent relations. Jj left abruptly left a huge void in talent relations with no. I want to step into that position. Vince McMahon made the decision to put me in that role. I didn't want that role wasn't good at that hat role to be clear and didn't WanNa go there. However Vince want someone that he could trust and he wants someone in that position that he we knew and then hit that also knew the INS and outs of talent relations? That's what happened. My role and talent relations didn't didn't allow me enough time to do both. And that was how Vince Russo. One that position Wind Shit Ha. It was moving. I'm I moved from here over to here. That's what happened well. I can't wait to say that you failed at that and you're only talent relations for a few weeks before you came crawling back because Vincent had to give that job to someone else. What now? Oh you are a man on an island with no country and you had nothing to do. So what better to do than to just sorta stir up some controversy. He says that you went to him and called them into into your office and said people in the office. Don't want to work with you. Nobody and he wrote he even went so far. Ars the name names again. Not Believing a word of this ploy. I questioned who everyone had spoken to Bruce. Everyone flat out denied the allegations locations. who was lying and who was telling the truth so he says you feel super threatened? Now that you've been kicked off of the booking committee you've been kicked out talent relations and now you're trying to you know sort of say. Hey nobody even likes you. Vents your response. So what the hell was I doing. Then because I was Intel talent relations from nineteen ninety seven until two thousand actually I was in talent relations from nineteen ninety two to two thousand but still That's aside the point now. What Vincent is making reference to there was an roussel got on the the writing thing was helping vents right the television show so he was Kinda running roughshod over a lot of people and particularly in the magazine in at the television studio? Vince McMahon came to me and said Powell. He's your buddy. You're the one that brought them in. You need to rein him in a little bit damaged. I'm getting people. Oh come to me and I think it would be best coming from you to talk to him. And I was blunt didn't sugarcoat it NASA events. You know you might want to ease the way that you're talking some people. Here's here's the feedback that I got in my feedback was directly from. Vince McMahon. I am now I did name names because I don't like you know when you're in a situation like that well who said that. Tell you who you said it. Russa went confronted them. They denied it to Vince. Russo had we had the opportunity to say. Hey everybody getting the same room. Including including Vince McMahon. And let's talk about it. I think it would have been a completely different situation. I was the fall guy my role in my position for so long I was the Asshole I was the bad guy I delivered the bad news. I was one that had to have those conversations with people but in that particular one that came directly from Vince McMahon and that was feedback that he had gotten from. People and Vince felt that it would be easier and be better matter. If I delivered that to Vince Russo. And I was able to. You know. Say Hey man get your shit together. Do this do that when he went confronted. People know Vince. I would never say that. That's human nature. That happens every day in every business all over the world. Well what does is a happen is when two people dislike each other as much as Vince. Russo in Jim Corr Nat Rousseau wrote in his book. That these guys just never got along. He felt like coronets ideas for twenty years too old. He.

I had been a district sales manager for Chrysler Corporation that dealer. Ships, but for the corporation, and I had made inroads about going back to work for Chrysler and Jack Lanza had already left. Jack was working with Vanson was an agent, and I think involved in a lot of other things and Jack, and I Jack also worked in the office in the Awa so Jack, and I had become very very close. And it was the Monday night after wrestle rock. Jack was on the road. But call me at home just to find out. You know, what happened what the finishes were? You know, how everything went, and we talked to not gonna tell them, you know, what had happened and he should want anything else. I said, well, I quit. And he started laughing in didn't believe me. And I said, no, I'm not. And he was like, you're kidding. I said, no. And he knew a lot of the back story. And he said, well, what are you going to do? And I said, well, I've already talked to him. You know, I think next week I'm gonna get together. And I think there's a good chance I'm gonna go back to work for Chrysler. And I said, well, what are you gonna talk to him next week? And he said, well, look hold. Let's talk when I get back to town. I'm coming in. I'll be back home tomorrow night, either Tuesday night or Wednesday night. I don't know if there was a day between and he called me. Night later late any goes, what are you doing for breakfast tomorrow? And I said nothing he said great. You know, you said we'll have breakfast. I'll I'll pick you up. And I I I can meet, you know, no, no, I'll pick you up. You said I'll pick you up six fifteen and we're a coat and tie. And I was like what are you not sixty? I'm not getting up ever anybody at six o'clock in the morning. And he said I'll be I'm picking up at six fifteen were a coat and tie because we're going to see Vince. And I started laughing. I said, Jack, I've seen you pull rib. You don't really think?

And which I did there was a call Jack back, and he said, I told Vince you're available that you would quit and he wants to see you. So we did we flew out to LaGuardia. So a lot of people think that Vince that I was another one that Vince came in and just hired away it, and that's not the case, and we got out to York, and they had a limo for us to take us up to Stanford really got to the office. I kinda went through a bit of an interview process. I think if you will again, not knowing the order, but I met with like, Pat Patterson and Terry Garvin, George Scott, Ernie sculling after each one, they take me back out to the lobby then go in and see the next one was however the order it was like, I think everyone gave. Blessing and then went to the next higher up. And I think the last one I talked to who was Arne sculling they took me back out. And then a while I got called into Vinci's office met, Vince. And within the first, you know, two three minutes of of meeting him. You gotta said tell me about your mustache. And I was kinda like, you know, I well, it's bought my lip centered. I I don't know why you wanna know, you wanna know when I grew it and everything, and he came out and said, just so, you know, and I even think he said, despite gene, I hate facial hair. And and then he just stopped and looked at me. And I said, we'll I assume you're asking if everything else worked out if I would shave my moustache, and he said would you and I said, yeah, I would and that was it never said a word, and we talked for probably another hour..

"Product from the United States with these larger than life characters in these big arenas and crazy outfits and everything else. That I think also contributed to the downfall of the British wrestling scene. After this. He decides to really test as metal across the world. So he starts doing what a lot of guys didn't that era and popping over to different countries. And and trying some new things and one of those spots that everybody stopped was in Germany for autobahns and the CWA the catch wrestling association Bariga would say from day one for whatever reason auto just hated the sight of him. They just did not get along. We have we've talked a little bit about auto and the CWA. But I don't know when we will again chat me up. Did you ever meet auto? And what was the rap on the CWA over in Germany. I never met auto. And my brother Tom actually worked for auto in Germany for a while auto was one of those old timey guys big bastard, tough guy, but auto liked the tough guys auto liked the shooters and the guys could actually go out and Russell and hold their own. So if you came in. And you were a worker he would usually put you with a tough guy. I keep throwing up Steve Wright's name because he was all around that area. And he was a tough guy. To beat the shit out of you. And I'll never forget Tom telling me the story about the first time he came in and Tom was worker, and he goes out and he's trying to have a good match. And they've got to do rounds in Steve righteous eight him up in after the first round came back. In in Tom's corner. Was a guy by the name of cowboy Scott hall of indigo fame later on in life. And Scott was like fuck, man. He's beating the shit outta you. You've got to go out and fuck him up. Man. You gotta hit him back and fucking fight him. And Tom went out in the second round and fought back and got stiff with Steve Wright started hitting him back and literally fighting him in all of a sudden third round. They went out and had a match and they worked together so auto like that oughta was was kinda got he would reward that. If you went out, and you fought your ass off and actually could read. Sel, but. I've heard both good and bad about auto think for the most part guys were happy. It was an opportunity. It was someplace to go and be away, and you could disappear for awhile and make some decent money. Here's something that a lot of people may not know in nineteen ninety one. That's wednesday. Rigel was I contacted by the WWF. He was not expecting a FedEx truck to roll up in his neighborhood and September of ninety one A says it may have even been the first time. A FedEx truck had been down that street, but it was a letter from the company asking him to come to their pay per view at the Albert Hall in October for a tryout. And he says this came completely out of the blue. He had no idea something like this could be on the horizon, and he found out later that has good Powell Terry Rudge was responsible. Lord. Alfred Hayes had an office job for the company at the time. And Terry was friends with Alfred Hayes and he hadn't spoken to him about it. And here it comes the invite. He says when it got hall he found Jack Lanza, and that was the agent that he was supposed to meet. And he told them to go get something to eat. But food was the last thing on his mind. This is his big chance eighty dollars dreamed of going to wrestle.

"He I am thinking about how long that's going on fats called a boo pop. Is a boo boo, boo. Boo. Pop pop. So I get goosebumps. When I hear that. Because for a lot of my career, I was a he'll I was a bad guy. And that's your goal to get people to hate something, you say, straight seconds of booze always forty seconds. I didn't know that. Wow. Forty seconds. I will tell like a lot of you, folks. Listen to me the rest of fans, but you guys maybe arm wrestling fan. So those are wrestling fan I'll smartly up a little bit. So in wrestling for like, a long time sports is used nation. Sports is us to trigger an emotion out of a certain town or city or whatever. And it's it's we call his cheap. Okay. Because it's easy. It's the low hanging fruit. So that's what I mean by cheap. So it's easy for a bad guy to get that reaction to rip the Seattle Seattle the best team, or you know, you go to go to whatever the DC area, you rip the Redskins or whatever, you know. What? I mean, it's easy. I've done this myself in Boston. Do you talk about doing that before you do it or do you just do it? Does it come naturally? Like is it just just comes off the Pence great quash off? Because if it's this raw, this is a lot of a lot of the promo work is written. So either one of the riders came up with it or allies himself came up with it. Okay. So that's that's all done beforehand. That's kind of a thing that ninety five percent of what you hear from the in ring wrestlers on the microphone is quote, unquote, air quotes scripted. All right. Had live a little bit. But okay. All right. So the promo work is not. Okay. Let me and where the announcing work is not scripted. What about like the rock? The rock was great on the Mike scope on these five minutes in was that all written most of it was written. He wrote it with a guy. Right, right. Wrong. Getting brian. Good works. Okay. Who's to the biggest met fan about bio quick story on him? He's a Long Island guy. Long Island loves the Mets too so much that when shea got knocked down. He bought a chocolate a wall. He lives here in Manhattan. He listens. Also, sometimes I don't know if he's listening, but and he has it ends apartment in his apartment. Bill wall from Shane. So Bryan and rock would write together a collective, so they'd come together. They write it. Got the promo. That's awesome rock now. Rock also is awesome. Living to go off script a lot right Elias. I think this this seemed a little bit more written written. But his delivery was phenomenal was fantastic at work. Now, if you're doing non televised show, like if it's not raw smackdown, and you're on a live event or how show as we call it that happened to me. We were in Boston on Friday night doing a non televised show years ago when I was in wwl's how show what it's really called a live event. Either way. And the his no TV cameras there and Nomar Garciaparra. Great Red Sox just happened to be there. Yeah. He was what I don't know who he was what friends or whatever he was sitting in the front row. Now, we got word backstage that he was there. He was gonna come back at emission to get some autographs and takes a pitches. So like, so they let us know copy lets us know. Yeah. So I knew I was the first match so and I had to get on a Mike, and I'm Mr. New York and I'm in Boston. So I tell you know, one of my bosses back. I'm gonna go right at him. Who's interesting to talk to them. I don't know. I'm not gonna beat them up. So you just don't go don't get the ring. Just stay in a ring. And don't don't go over to us. The without naming the Boston is a guy named Jack Lanza attached. Just don't get in his face. Don't get nuts. Just get on verbally. Yeah. And you just don't curse please stop right because it's non TV. So sometimes you would curse. Okay. Then. All right. So I start ripping the Red Sox and act like while. I'm there like I'm the biggest Yankee fan. What year was a met fan? It was all one. Okay. Maybe. And I am just ripping the Red Sox. And I'm like gos-, you're not now and the builders Shah. No, okay, ignore right. And I goes this Gibran sitting right over here. Who is this who, you know? Me. Goal. I'm talking about Derek jeeter. He's the best middle infielder in the game. He's the best the best baseball. Bob. I'm going on around about geeder. Like like me Geeta, boys. I live with no Geeta. And I'm telling you man, it was insane. This is the first segment of the show. So. Garcia power played a long time with he came backstage. We shook hands holiday, and we will. Does over. Did you do when it like when you're leaving the ring? I flipped them off. Did. Really? So. Off. Yeah. But in in in anger, I was I guess I'd say something I'm walking out. The guy wasn't on Mike and what the psychology behind. It is the guy. I was wrestling hardcore Holly, Bob, Holly. And he was a good guy. And the thing was while. I'm doing that on the Mike before Bob Holly comes through the curtain. He loves it. What I'm doing? I'm making this job easy. Yeah. I'm making people hate my guts, and he's going to be the conquering hero costs. So we want to see him destroy me. Right. So he comes in he wins. Everyone's celebrating. Ripping by Bennie, his high fiber. Orion. They're having a. That's not written. That's just sad. That's all. Not right at you know, just went off, and how long did you go on the ring kidding? Imagine it was maybe forty five seconds to admit that was let's great enough to get that amount of yet to get a little feel now. Like, I said, I didn't reinvent the wheel the many guys before you did that with sports. Ric flair a great nature. Boy, he's doing all time back in day when he was a he'll when he was a bad guy. Yeah. So many guys are great. And when I watch wrestling over the years you've seen it whether it be an actor and actress a comedian or say, a boxer whatever it might be where you see they'll grab or they'll say something. And then they'll when especially I mean, I haven't been to a house showing awhile. But when it's on TV and then the cameras right in the face of the person on the reaction, then the cameras out there by accident point. So yeah. So it's like. So what would allies did their on raw? Now, this the thing. I got to tell you the past couple of years. Great novel the past couple years on what you see this more. What the low hanging fruit of attacking sports teams. I gotta tell you my time and WWE working on Ron smackdown. TV shoots and stuff. That was never allowed this McMahon. Did not was that was too easy again, cheap e low hanging fruit. He wanted you to be clear. I don't know. Past couple of years. They've been doing it more. Well, let me rephrase that maybe I do know now that I'm thinking about maybe it's because they for a long time. They really wanna be the WWE wants to be clumped into mainstream sports 'cause a lot of of sports verticals online, a website sex, CBS sports, ESPN come a lot more mainstream. Correct. And it's all under under like, the relationship dated with ESPN help do that combat sports MMA WWE that kind of thing. So I maybe that's prop. Don't we Vince with thinking this team? That's probably why he's going more for a low hanging fruit on walks together. Because you maybe you get an ESPN or CBS sports or NBC to pick up Elias Rippin Seattle and their basketball team. Interesting. I mean, that's the fascinating aspect you. When you go behind it and figure out exactly when it happens. What happens the reason it happens the writing behind it? I mean, those stories are are invaluable. They really are. And that experience yet certainly with Garciaparra that's off the charts. And they get it. They understand it. No more. I'm sure that night. Understood it, and it was gonna play a absolute play a role. He though. Yeah. No. But he I started riffing good. It's all fun and these try and everybody's pointing. Great. Right now. We know why you hate me. Hate me. Audio that we played of Elias. That's. USA network in WB, Abu Dhabi and WB network. That was on raw data. So that's a great story. Has. You would know bar seventeen years ago. I would say you year. I remember wrestling events. I imagine no more. I know he's been told. Yeah. And he was a fan. He's been to allow. That's a great moment.
