"Twenty three years inside the squared circle. Where we left off lance is talking about one on one training with the students at the land storm academy and getting in there himself going through the paces with that being said last i wanted to ask with all those years in business with a high flying style. You had mixed with your base ground attack. How you filling these days physically. I'm a. I'm pretty good. Good aches and pains. Don't get me wrong. Did you have any major injuries. i never really had any major ones When i decided to get off the road full-time was starting to have lower back issues Thankfully ended up getting diagnosed about a year after that And i've got them under control now But i haven't had any major injuries. Which is fortunate. Obviously touch would I've got some minor issues with my neck that just started last year All my discs and stuff. Good i've just got to a narrowing on one of the nerves in my neck. So i i have to be careful about certain things that i do A lot of stretching and and strengthening Just not allowed to do bridging anymore. they don't want any more compression on it but On the whole. I feel really good Other than again you know their shoulders ache. And the knees at times. But i never had a major injury And i had cartlidge scoped in my knees Maybe three years ago Just to trim up because it was being problematic but other than that. I've never had a surgery and for the most part feel pretty good and his shoes at causing any tingling or numbness in your fingertips No I i get headaches. I get dizziness. sorta like seasickness a bit Symptoms were like a concussion. But i knew. I hadn't banged my head After getting it looked at finally It was determined that there's just a little bit of narrowing on the nerve. So i'll find get a little bit dizzy If it's bothering me. But if i if i do my stretches and exercises I pretty much have no symptoms To bridge Do further compressed my neck and not supposed have a lifting my gin up really high and looking up Makes it worse. So i tend to keep my chin tucked Because it just allows more movement than other than that had no problems at all. Lower back diagnosed. Would they diagnosed with them. I ended up diagnosing an odd. Oddly enough from reading a novel Diagnose your own back reading a novel yeah They know my back was bothering me. Wbz sent me to 'em arise doctors and everything else and nobody really found anything And i was reading a novel and the character in the novel was complaining about back problems. And i'm reading. This sounds exactly like what i have. So i looked it up online printed. Talk to my doctor and his. Is this my problem is like the so we did the therapy for and it's a there's a so as muscle which flex and to your lumbar and mine was in severe spasm and it was tilting my pelvis and it was straining my lumbar and when i i was landing on the sciatic insertion of pelvis and causing you know tingling and strength loss and my one leg So once i started getting therapy and the stretches for the so as muscle and relaxed my problem pretty much went away and that's good news. Obviously let's talk about your rings down a little bit. How would you describe your ring style from back in the day. I don't know 'cause i again. I always prefer being a heel. So i always likes to adapt my style to what i needed I i'd like to think it was more just a.

"Chris came from a little bit of a judo background with his brother. Neil being in olympics. It was all about the show. It was all about the bumps all about learning how to fall. And we go out there and slapped. Should've that matt our after hours. All about foul and then we learn a little bit of chain wrestling and then just basically a couple of moves. And so when i had my first match was fundamentally sound but to a large degree you know the business bro. Wrestling is like many others. It's on the job training Have you express this to your kids. i have Although the thing that's hard is that there aren't as many people to learn on the job with any more at the indy level Because when i was trained you know. I was taught basic execution. And how to bump and then sent off and i was lucky to work with some good veterans. Oddly enough. I actually did a tour of lebanon with chris adams and worked with them. How's that was nineteen ninety two We got screwed on her money War broke out and we had to leave with gunshots going off. it was a horrible time But i tagged with chris adams on two or three of the shows He was the top baby-faced because we're a class. Television was strong in the middle east for some reason. Kind of state of mind with chris adams in at that time Seem to be pretty good We we got along well. But i felt that there was a tension there. For some reason. I didn't know why I was pretty green and this was ninety two. So i was only you know year and a half into business Mondo and travel guerrero. Were on the tour as well We're sort of the the big names were on the show and it was. It was certainly a great learning experience for me but he was using pretty good Seem to be in a good mood and again worked really well he was. It was a good worker. Very solid mechanically. I remember when i came in and you know went through. A school had long blond hair. He saw something in me. We started feuding together. And you know he would always get the win when he needed to win we. I would always get the heat. When i needed to heat. He was smart as far as business. Goes and you know every now. And then chris would go off and be chris and you know he kind of had that dark sad but you know when he was having a good day you know he was just. He was a charismatic likeable guy that she had fun being around. Yeah he was and again he was one of the first You know. I've only had like a maybe it happened. There's people that actually seen russell on tv or on tapes. That i got to work with at that point in time. So i was. I was pretty excited to work with them. and had a good But back to the The on the job training with with school with there being less opportunity to work with you know guys like chris adams when you agreeing and to learn this is why i really harp on ring psychology. A lot So that you don't have to guys out there with six months experience working each other you try to give them that foundation hoping that they can pass it on to others And use it And i'm i'm a hands on trainer. I mean the ring with my students every day. You have anybody helping you out or is it. Just you and ring with these cats It's pretty much just me on occasion. I've got some past students. That are quite good. that are still local So if they have a day off to be like you mind. If i come down and then i'll have them help with demonstrations but i i'm a perfectionist in an real Stickler for detail. So i'm a hands on guy I'm in the ring wrestling with them every day. And i have a minimum usually too but i have a minimum of one full match at the end of class with every student What we'll do you know anywhere from ten to fifteen minute match in class Game twelve's my favorite number Go as high as fifteen. Because sometimes you get drop dropouts and cancellations. And i don't like having to small class 'cause i gotta lisa and rent to pay but aim for twelve How much we don't give you an with these person. While you're there teaching. I run three hours a day. Five days a week to twelve we read And sometimes classes go along if i'm in in the groove and things are going well we continue on but so it's however many hours that is and again i when we're tied up and taking headlock. I'm the one doing the first one with them. And when it comes time to take those first bombs and also to just for safety skit situation. If i'm not one hundred percent sure this this this cat's say a suplex correctly. I'm taking the first ones to make sure nobody gets hurt. because again i've been doing this so long now you got to really screw up before i can't care of myself And obviously from a liability standpoint of the school. You want to say if you can't afford to be getting kids hurt so It's a lot of ring time. And i. i take a lot of bumps. And i run a lot of drills. But i'm lead by example guys so when i'm telling these kids they need to be better shape You know. I'm forty four years old. And if i can get in the ring and and run them into the ground where they need a break. I'm like you need to push harder. you know. i'm a forty three forty four year old guy. That's not looking for bookings and in better shape than you. And i'm talking to a forty four year old man and had twenty three years in the squared circle is out there working with the students one on one basis. I'm gonna come back in a few minutes. Continue talking to lance storm about the land storm academy. I wanna run through a couple of the promotions. You were in and your thoughts. Japan because As solid as you are in a ring lynch you do some incredible which are straight out of japan. Forty four year old veteran of the squared circle..

"Do you remember that he wore a mask and why? No he wore a mask and it was because he was off work milking workmen's compensation. He had taken a bump at work. So he had time off to promote these shows, and since this was gonNA air on local cable access television, he didn't want his face on. TV because if someone at Workman's comp on taking bumps in the ring, they realized she'd be at his regular job. Oh my gosh that's so great and this is pre Internet people only people that saw this show like you said, it was on local TV, but there was nobody filming on their cell phones. So the car that night, the announcer was Hurricane Heath Brown. And the first match was a junior mid heavyweight. Best of three falls. Brett COAMO. Who is a good friend of ours to this day versus Brad Young. And Brad was one eighty to a Komo's one eighty, which surprises most of the time they've had asked coma what he weighed and what would he say Lance? No Brad was the one would always two pounds more than Komo's come with give a shit. They go wanted to one eighty two. I reconnected with Brad on on instagram. Yeah. No I've I've run into him. I'm friends with on facebook and he came down to the school at one point and. He actually just had shoulder surgery. So he's recouping from that when Brad. Young was the guy who basically was our instructor because Ed was kind of the boss but ed kind of sat out and Brad. took all the bumps Kinda worked with us. He was a little bit smaller than we were, but he was really really good very fast, very, very classic Calgary fast style wrestler Yeah it's. It's a shame before both he and Komal that the business hadn't shrunk yet. They were. A decade early for their size because you have both were really talented co ended up in Japan with us as the Black Dragon which she still wears the costume twenty, five years it's getting Kinda. Ratty but he still wears it thirty minute time with the next matches Rick Titan. Versus Les Thornton, and both of those guys aren't with the same less passed away too right yeah. I'm pretty sure although less would have been old at the time at least. Yeah. Big Titan. Our good friend for many years were to Japan, and at this point time like when when when Rick passed away, man the first five years of my career rick was everywhere. You know he was with US everywhere. Yeah for sure. But he he was also. We've mentioned that you know we were like the you know the guys that were in shape and it's like Titan was the guy that was like Oh man this guy gets you star like this. You know he was again he said he was six eight but he was probably at least six, six, six, seven you know probably to sixty two to ninety depending on the year and it's like he was a big impressive. Looking dude. He wasn't especially the back in one, thousand nine. There wasn't a lot of those guys around. So you see on some of those posters program would say the Titans six, eight to six, seventy, five where people would see that are posted. Go holy smokes this go see this giant damaging how biggie beat at a Jeez, right? Exactly. Yeah. Then we have the haircut match with Randy Rudd versus Steve Gillespie who Will be our one of our opponents in the second match. And I was I was like working Randy Rudd. He was he was a meat and potatoes Guy Nice Guy. But he was he could put on a you could put on a solid match with him when I recall no pun intended right right randy was a little on the snow. That's right. That's right. You do you getting hit with you're getting hit by Randy Rudd but but yeah, he was he was a solid meat and potatoes guy and he would do whatever you needed. So I work with them a to then yeah. The main event the capital punishment, which is Bob, the judge under mask Shane Kroft versus earthquake Muldoon and liberace get it Lee bureaucracy, and then the main event is a royal rumble which I believe is part of the we'll. We'll talk about later on as well but ness nestled on the cards third. With the fifteen minute time limit it's Chris, Jericho versus Lance Storm. So if you guys are. Watching along with us once again, go to the Chris Jericho Youtube Channel and Click on The match and we'll get started in three two one go. We turn the the commentary down of it. All right. Here we go. I'm five pounds heavier than you. I see that Chris Jericho h that's still drives me nuts. So. You can see we're kind of like in a looks like a beer hall kind of a veteran's hall or something. And I didn't have the singlet made to wrestle. I. Had that made before that? Just you just aware that just to have I used to go to the university weight room and Lifton it just just eat dare someone to say something and let me say right now that at Langley referee, which is the equivalent of Pat Patterson being the REF in Hogan and Piper all the the Mr T. and got to make sure that you've got somebody that can help you call the match just in case. Why Footwork's terrible? Yeah. You're. You're always a big big head scissor off the top or. Pushing off the top that was a big move back then yes. The big headlock takedown from the corner. That was big. How much of this mass did we directly still from own heart? You know? Whether it was indirectly or directly probably. Air You are I was totally hoping that you would lead the match. I was always a little bit scared back these days to start the tackle dropdown. Last Storm Leapfrog Hip. Toss. There you go. Good. Win this time. Wait till. You see the others arm drag their terrible bump. You always say the fact we have always at the pullman kneepads up that always bothered you. Eventually switch to kick pads have. You always were. So technically gifted they're like everything you do when you do it you is it a little bounce after Easter Piss me off like so you little bounce afterwards. It's funny. How like used to Piss me off all the personality things you did like again. You actually looked at the crowd and made noise and I thought you were like this charisma God. It's just like, Oh, my God, it's such a natural. So that's good. You don't see that much. The firemen carry takeover takedown especially when done that poorly. A blonde yet though nobody you do have a tail and I love the fact that you're wearing actual weightlifting what what Jack off you're to detain that. I was just strictly part of it was I wanted to come out of my shell. I knew I had to go out in front of April and I'm such an introvert. But also to part of it was to see if anyone had the balls to saying anything to me in the weight room did they ever there was one dude that did major the most smart ass comment napalm me. Put, over that I give you the noticed him. If you saw earlier guys is I put Lances armed down the classic do the the knee drop into the arm and I remember I asked somebody I just said. I did it and some kid went do it again and I couldn't believe that somebody actually wanted to do it again I remember thinking if that's saying, this looks for you kid. Right there. Do it again, the only drop I've ever done to probably right there. He hated the leg drove hate him and you were so good. I. Just ate it. But. Once again to baby faces exchanging holds work in the arm. It's spring technically proficient. Would I don't have any problems with this match right now so far? Is this the one although that backdrop on the roads? We used to again it goes back to are being fans of the rockers. It's like we always used to compete to see who could take the big backdrop such marks for how Great Shaun and Marty were at them. We were always good at backdrops to that's one thing that both of us could do really well. As you throw in the Cornwall Big Big Monkey Flip here. Once.

"Talk. Ricco. Okay. So it's really kind of strange man. Right off the bat here with Lance Storm and this week is our thirtieth year. Anniversary in the wrestling business. October second nineteen ninety, which is. It's it's unbelievable man. What do you think it's crazy like. I remember thinking back then because people say it's like you know how long are you going to do this and I'm like I can't imagine doing it past forty and it's like a decade past that now. I remember saying to you because we had said something like that and I remember I literally once I'm going yeah. You know I can't. You know probably do the to about thirty or so you know then move onto the next. Fifty years old man and I'm still working and you still make your your living from the rest of Your Business in in a myriad of ways You know it's funny because whenever if I? A. Fairly good friends with Paul Stanley at this point in time and I'm the type of guy that will say, Hey, happy anniversary of the crazy nights record it was thirty three years ago or happy anniversary of kiss alive it was forty, forty, six years or thirty six JOE's whatever it is and what does that feel like to you and he says it doesn't feel like forty six years it feels like only yesterday. It really does like. If it wasn't for twitter and people reminding me that this was eighteen years ago, twenty years ago it's like. I, never realized the date but. Again I I still remember when we showed up at the OCA-. Tokes in. And you know you remember I I remember more details about the early stuff than I do about the stuff from a decade ago. Yeah, it's something that a lot of people set a once again referencing kiss again, Gene Simmons said you know it's the early days that I remember the most because those are the days were you. You knew you were gonNA, make it, but it's still never really knew for sure. You know there was no guarantees that what we're GONNA do with lead to you know worldwide I don't even want to say worldwide fan but to worldwide exposure doing what we set out to do and it's it's funny to think about those times like like you mentioned showing up at the William the first day or having this master. We're going to talk about the whole world was ahead of us, but we didn't know for sure if that was the case. Well, that's you know you always hear everybody say it's it's it's about the journey not the destination. Yeah, and those first few years are the journey. Once you actually make the, you know the big contract, the national television now you're at work, but all those milestones and stages along the way where you know your first international trip, your first contract, your first booking it just getting that first booking it's like I remember when we got our little envelope with our pay in it, it's like. I was officially a professional because I got paid to do this. It's like that was monumental. It was like thirty bucks in an envelope. Yeah because. We'll get to this obviously later on, but I remember the that was thirty bucks in the envelope, and I remember the last real job that I had was working at. A grocery store and the Deli and I think I worked eight hours a week part-time and and get forty dollars for my check five bucks an hour and I remember thinking holy. Shit. I just worked ten minutes for thirty bucks. Instead of eight hours for forty bucks. I'm rich. This is great. Thirty. Bucks. Well let's I mean like I said we could talk about I. Think we've we've had podcast before on our training we're focusing we're going to do a two part series this week legitimately for real our first and second matches and thankfully thanks to you being the pack rat that you are and you were had both Both of these matches on video and both programs. For the matches. In your possession. So we have all of this stuff here. This is like a treasure trove. Yeah it was. It was really thanks to my mom 'cause I sent I. Think probably every couple of months I'd send anything. I had my mom to probably just show her that I'm actually not a bum. I'm working look I'm somebody now. And she had put them in a binder and I don't remember when but not that long ago might probably five years ago now. She had given me the binder back and I'd thrown it in my filing cabinet with all my other stuff that I've been collecting like you say I'm a pack rat and I just came across the binder Oh my God all this stuff. It's it's it's amazing. The the craziness of those shows and just how. Both terrible they were. But so monumental in who we are now in our success, like I'd never give up those memories and and what we did for anything we'll everybody has has to start somewhere when one thing that that we talked about earlier this week was. This is this is not saying this of any type of ego but we we were fairly good right off the bat four. Where we were this as far as the part of the country are who is available. Right. Out of the gate. Yeah and a lot of it, and it's the thing that I harped on my students forever. It's we were in shape. We were good athletes that looked apart and you were always really big on costuming like I. Don't know if I would have been his diligent if not for your influence early but it's like you got address the part and I know both you and I you more than me but we are both big marks for the rockers and the fact that they always had different gear..

"One I wanted to ask all those years in the business with a high flying style style you had mixed with your base ground attack. How you feel in these days physically? I'm a whole I'm pretty good. Aches and pains. Don't get me wrong. Did you have any major injuries. I never really had any major ones When I decided to get off the road fulltime most starting to have lower back issues The thankfully ended up getting diagnosed about a year after for that And I've got them under control now But I haven't had any major injuries. which is a fortunate obviously would I've got some minor issues with my neck that just started last year All my discs and stuff are good. I've just got a a narrowing on one of the nerves in my neck so I have to be careful about certain things that I do Lot of stretching and strengthening Just not allowed to do bridging anymore. they don't want any more compression on it but On the whole I feel really good Uh other than again you know their shoulders ache at times but I never had a major injury And I I had cartlidge scoped in my knees Any three years ago Just a criminal because it was being problematic but I did not have never had a surgery and for the most part feel pretty good and neck issues that caused anything that are nameless. I'm listening fingertips No I I get headaches. I'll get a little bit of dizziness. I'm SORTA like seasickness a bit Symptoms were like concussion. But I knew I hadn't banged my head so after getting it looked at finally It was determined that there's just a little bit of narrowing on the nerve. I'll find out a little bit dizzy If it's bothering me but if I if I do my stretches and exercises I pretty much have no symptoms I'm just not supposed to bridge to further compress my neck and and not supposed to have a lifting my gin up really high and looking up Makes it worse so I I tend to keep intact. 'cause it just allows more movement than other matt add no problems at all now when you say lower back diagnosed what they diagnosed with I ended up diagnosing. It ought oddly enough reading a novel knows your own back reading reading a novel. Yeah you know my back was bothering me. WBZ sent me to memorize doctors anything else and nobody really found anything and I was reading a novel and the character in the novel was complaining. Waning roll back problems. And I'm reading it going. This sounds exactly like what I have so I looked up online. Print it out and took it to my doctor and his is this. My problem is likely so we did the therapy for it. And it's there's a so as muscle which Italian flex and to your lumbar and mine was in severe spasm and it was tilting my hell this and it was straining my lumbar. And when I bombed I was landing on the SCIATIC insertion and my pelvis and causing you know tingling and strength loss awesome my one leg so once. I started getting the therapy in stretches for the so as muscle and relaxed. My problem pretty much went away. Ring style a little bit. How would you describe earring? Style from today I don't know a again. I always preferred being. He'll so I. I always likes to adapt my style to what I needed I like to think it was more just a traditional worker. Think William Regal lights the Journeyman Term which I I'm a big fan of that you know when I worked in Europe or Europe. Japan is junior heavyweight. I worked at junior heavyweight cruiserweight style. That was a lot more athletic. But when I worked in WCW. I work more of the traditional wrestling sports entertainment style. If you will and when I went to Wbz you know. I'm a firm believer that when you when you know how to work the rescue easy and you know there's a lot of people that not only had a hard time at adjusting to this style of that style and I never had that difficulty because again I I find that the basic fundamentals are are the same and if you can get that emotion you can add the rest in so I think I was a traditional worker more than anything else but when I think about your work now you started in Calgary but then right off you went to Japan correct Wendy Europe I and learned a lot of the European style which is very mad based I got to work with fit Finlay. When he was in his priming Europe? That guys went best ever in history of the business and a lot of people. Don't know that name or you know so a bit of his running. WWW fit Finlay is tremendous. He's fantastic and he. He's one of those guys that always looks legit. I've never seen a moment in his match that it just didn't look believable and legit and I got to work with them a lot in Europe even before he hurt his leg and WCW and he was the man he was the top heel in Europe and just you know grabbed that crowd and held them. And I learned so much working working with him As a baby face when I worked with him. And you know a lot of the good English guys you know Dave Taylor Who worked ww for a while and other Great Matt Guy? I'm so I learned a lot of the European style there and then when I went to Japan learned a lot more of the you know the junior heavyweight high flying style there so I again I took a lot a lot of flavors from a lot of places which I think helped my versatility but then when you got back from Japan and you go right to smokey mountain smoking out and was before Japan Europe span than the one year run and smokey. which was you know Memphis? One zero one almost and then went to Japan came out of Japan and then went to smoky and I was thinking man. Dan You when you talk about you know you can work. He can work but there is a big difference in stylistically from Japan. Work and smokey mountain. Yeah it really was a big difference but I think what helped to me is A tagging Jericho and smokey mountain and he was working in Mexico and Japan before smokey I had just done a European tours. so Jericho was on that that cutting edge of spots. And you know that The early nineties Junior heavyweight style and into smoking mountain. And we're working well done. Who Are you know Memphis Tennessee one? Oh one right and it was. It was a really good Mental exercise for me. Because I was a traffic cop trying to speed up. Well well done a little bit but putting the reins on Jericho to try to find some way of meeting in the middle and again it was my my one of my first real realms into being a ring general and trying to control the action because they had well done who were really good but very southern style and Jericho who was awesome but you know was working a hundred miles an hour. More than Memphis wanted Bring those guys together was a was a hell of an exercise for me and I think we managed it relatively well but and it was after that that I I went to Japan on a regular basis Japan. I really love to Japan and I think part of it was. I hadn't found myself as a character or performer yet. I was still very much a wrestler and re relied on the in ring stuff more than having any speaking ability or personality. If you see any PROMOS I didn't smokey mountain. How's that was awful? So Japan was just a straight up sport. If you were a good athlete and could wrestle You know that's what they want exactly. I loved it. Yeah it was physical. which which again? I tend to work on the lighter side of things but I didn't mind getting in there and having to fight either So I liked the physicality of Japan and the these sport aspect of it. 'cause we're respected and athletes elites over there. So I really enjoyed that. But it wasn't easy. W that Paul Heyman actually let me find Lance Storm. I was really just Lance Evers athlete. You know they called let me Lance storm but when I got to w Paul Heyman's the one that actually brought a personality and character to me. Well let's talk about Your body of work. I mean through the the major federations. It's your Dan you know. W W W W W and Ring Avar Alice Jump Right in the SEC. W and because you know ball handling was so instrumental in my career her and you just brought his name up. What did he do for Lance Storm? How did he help you put the pieces together? Or how did he turn that light bulb on in your head. I think the biggest thing is he he he just pointed me at the switch and he let me turn the light on myself. I was really good friends with Chris. Candido 'cause we had worked in Smoky Mountain to get out and so he put me in a program with Chris because he saw us talking and hanging out knew that we had good chemistry. And actually I've got a lot more personality than you would think when you first I meet me so. He saw that. I was comfortable with Chris so he put me in a program with Chris and allowed us to interact with each other and he knew Chris could draw out of me. 'cause we're comfortable after with other And he didn't tell me what the end product of character that I was going to have to be. He just put me in situations where I could develop and it really the health and he just gave me a guiding hand and when I the program I was supposed to do with Chris Candido stay babies. He just wanted me attorney. He'll enough that I had an edge and would be accepted as a baby face but I jumped into it too much in the crowd was going the other way and Crispin Paul pulled aside and said well. Sorry Chris. You're going to have to go baby face on this land the one getting the heat out of it and so we switched it and just let you find where you were then. Once I had finally turned heel. It's like this the calling. I just loved it and it was easier. Let's talk about that. You said he'll is easier. Mirror reserved baby face had hard time going out there on that lamb. Much in a way I was when I first started What is it about being a heel that you doug I like the control aspect It it's easier to correct all the traffic and run the show me personally. I'm not selfish enough to be a baby face right out to be that top. Maybe face you've got to be a little bit selfish because you gotTa be the Cincinnati. You GotTa make sure that you own it and I always was a little bit reluctant. I didn't want to take too much. Because again it with the work aspect and so forth worth I always felt like I was holding back whereas he'll I had confidence that I could get my heat so I made sure I gave my face a lot to make sure that baby face got over. Because I'm a firm believer that the baby's face is the one that draws the money. You.

"You know, thanks coming on finally. And the. Yeah. We, we I think we gotta do this again. But actually talk about you, instead of, you know, your students, we have nothing in common. So we had talked about wrestling. So. Guys got desperate enough. You had to call me to be on your show. Yeah. I'm sure Jay will say that after off, it's like well we scraped the bottom of the barrel. Now. He's a prick a wait and sit next week. We won't say it now. Are you kidding this, this should have happened before now? But I'm glad to finally did. And we were able to work it all out. All right, LTS good talking to you, buddy, ticker, guys. That was Ray conversation. Love having conversation. My friends like Lance, but also the cats I love Oskar the elder statesmen the older cat sits back the judges everyone with his his frowning face. Little sin three cats. Love lexi. Love my indoor outdoor cat peppy you know what? I don't love cleaning up their litter box, which is why Armand hammer created new cloud control litter. There's no powder these when I scoop, it's one hundred percent dust rate of how he perfumes reduce airborne dander from scooping. So what happened in the litterbox stays in the litterbox, new cloud control cat, litter by Armand hammer. More power to you. So there's, there's again, a small handful of people, and I actually keep in contact with throughout the years. I mean you run in anybody and it's just like everybody gets along to give me wrong. But there's small handful that I remain in contact with. And Lance is one of those guys so that just felt like one of our conversations really. Feel like catching up like you know, we haven't talked in person and. A little while. And just like you know. Yeah. Hope hopefully people felt like it was sitting in on on somebody's catching up because what it was. You know in. He's good dude. Obviously, like I said, super respected within the within the industry. And now he's helping turn out the future. You know, and then doing it the right way so good for Lance, and he's, you know, he's doing great from south. He's. He's happy. He's, he's home. Retired which doesn't doesn't always happen. So good for him. Yeah. He's got his Tim Hortons always maintained like he talked about a certain integrity, and that, that has always been the case that will never sway that will never leave that is just Lance and, and also truly one of the most gifted people that ever in there with just in terms of the at lettuce them and being able to pull off things, but also just the mindset in the ideas. And, and again, just carrying himself with a certain level of I dunno. Dignities the right word but professionalism. Yeah. Good to catch up Olin's land. Tumble tumbleweed? We didn't even get into him and icing Humpty dance out in the of the desert on our way from Yuma to Phoenix tonight. That's a sight to behold San storm sing the Humpty dance.

And again you to not to just blow smoke or two of the very best ever in the ring. Things bunny, and I truly and honestly, say vice versa. One of my, I'd be grudgingly said time, I'd be good, grudgingly, say it back to Lance. Jay, the back was going, you like working me more. Always always hundred pounds. Also thing Lance used to hate when we would eat it Cracker Barrel was when Lance would start to order his breakfast. I would take over and order his breakfast for him in, in the way that he would do it. Everybody can order crack a barrel or the all in the Lance Boyce 'cause they've, they've overdo it dry as possible made like an omelet with Turkey and it is dry as humanly possible. Oh, well man, this is great. This was a nice little trip down down memory lane. But also, we just talked about the business, which was nice. You know, thanks coming on finally. And the. Yeah. We, we I think we gotta do this again. But actually talk about you, instead of, you know, your.

"And that's the thing that aim on the door is the guy in the ring with you every day. So I knew that. And then, again much like, no Adam you do. I spend time at home with my family my dogs. It's not bad, right? I and salon. I compete, we both have Fitbit, and my, my Fitbit total is way down this week. And I know you've noticed because I know you're watching. I'm way down this week. So, so get this. I'm standing there. Beth decided, let's go to Wilmington to go to the beach for day. Let's six hour drive. So we drove there crash got up went to the beach will up the next day. Drove six hours back twelve hours of driving over three days. I'm like, okay, whatever we get home I turn to grab a magazine off the counter. My back seizes right up just walked like old men shuffle. I'm like, oh, no. You know, when you can't breathe all three of us have had it and anybody listening to this, that has been in the ring has had this happen to them, where you're, you're for no reason whatsoever. Your just entire BAC seizes up and you can't essentially move for this time, it's looking like three days. I'm up today, at least, but that's what my steps are down, buddy. Yeah, I noticed that you're you're down in the sixty thousand for the week range, and it's like in the nineties, what's going on? It's it's been a slow week. The old man shuffle, I could really tell when you were filming Vikings. 'cause you know, the it doesn't really go over. Well, I would imagine with costuming don't end. Would you like man who steps in the right now? So, so this, I knew you would be saying that and I started to get hot. So I started putting my watch and my boot, so so I would get credit for the steps. Damn it because I was taking a lot of steps. I said strap it on your dog and let 'em run out in the hills. Yeah. That's a good idea. Dammit, man. We're not a prick like you, if you can I. A one just said, you're yeah, I won't question freelance of just, you know, we talked about, you know, how, how great your career was and, and respected you within the industry. And those sorts of things is there anything I don't wanna say any regrets, but do was or something, or a moment or something that you wish had happened that didn't throw your career you satisfied with how it all how it all went down. One moment that in it's it's it was ended up being it was going to be a behind the scenes. I mentioned the RIC flair wanting to get in the ring and work out with me before his meeting eighteen match with taker the week. We got to Toronto for fan access. He came to me and said, the ring sky is going to be up a few days early, would you mind coming down, and having like twenty or thirty minute match with me, so I can just push my cardio. And as a kid who watched RIC flair as wrestling fan. I'm like, this is going to be so awesome. And I'm like, absolutely you sure you don't mind. And I'm like, who don't have to kill the match with RIC flair. And he called me like the day or two before with the rings not going to be until Sunday. We can't do it. Sorry. And I was that one moment, I would have done anything to have, but I didn't that I don't really have any regrets, I achieve more than I thought I would. When I broke in because in nineteen ninety eight two hundred twenty twenty five pound kid was never going to be a main event her. So it was never really, you know, I want to be world champion. It's like someone that small would have been ridiculous at the time. So it was never on my radar. So achieved more than I wanted to, or thought, I would so in that regard, I was happy, I'm happy.

"Could have done so much more than you ever did, which I think, also speaks to, you know, thinking about the greater picture and cause you were able to do anything in there, in terms of athleticism, and as a bigger person to because you were what to thirty. I was billed at two thirty two and a quarter. Yeah. I mean but two hundred twenty five pound dude that can run and just leap to the top rope. That's, that's not normal. So. Athletically, and that's where to it was it was Marquette rea the one time mentioned as the two most athletic guys he ever saw was being show which again being in company with shell. Shelton's incredible. And that was also to. I'm trying to you in the match will you in the first money in the Bank in LA? Yes. Both of us were okay. You remember I was sitting in the locker room because I was teaching Lovie w the time, but they brought me in, they called me like two days worth like, we like to go to maniam. Sure. And I was sitting in the locker when you guys were putting the match together, and I don't know if you remember or not. But it's like you putting stuff together and then you couldn't find Shelton. Yeah. In Jericho joked, with well, so doesn't show up. We can just use Lance. He's probably the only guy that can do this stuff. Anyway. And I'd like when I say you jump to the top rope. I don't mean you run up the corner or you, you stop and grab the ropes and vault up. You I've seen you just run and leap and land on the top rope. Yeah. Just foot standing takeoff. I can not anymore. I don't think back. If you think you're fifty and you still have to think about it. You prick. The bottom rope. Gosh. I mean, there's you would have had a lot of fun with those guys. So, so what's, what's coming? We didn't get into anything, by the way, except you know, we just ended up talking like us, so wh what's what you got coming going forward because I just saw that we've kept her for a while. Still my school storm wrestling dot com. I, I do three sessions a year January just trying to break January-May in September each year twelve weeks. And I'm the guy in the ring, tying up and taken bumps with you and wrestling, you. So you learn firsthand for me. I've done a couple and I believe I will be doing more work forward, working with done cow is actually doing a little bit agent work with impact wrestling. I believe I'm going to be doing more. But it's dawns you never know. But yeah, for the most part. Just my wrestling school can follow, you know, at storming academy on Instagram, you can see photos and bitches of training..

"And it's so great. And when you see, and that's the other thing that I like there's been a few instances where some of my peers have been, you know, worked with some of my students, and when I get, you know, a good review back in the one thing that I really appreciate is, when you hear the they could talk to themselves professionally, it's like that means so much because it's like, you know, everyone's had a bad batch. It's like you know, let's be serious. It's like, you know, whatever the greatest worker is he sucked at one point two, but it's like if you conduct yourself, well, you get more opportunities, and it's like that represents, well on me, and hopefully well on them. Question you're saying earlier, how, you know, you were talking about the, the people that you've trained going through Lovie, w what was it? The made you decide to step away from that in kind of take a chance and open your own wrestling school, and was just not wanting to travel at all wanted to be closer to home or was, what was the, the reasoning there? Danny Davis who ran Lovie w was the one that suggested to me, my, my deal had gone up because I forget, how much time I had left on my talent contract when I went there, and I think I have signed a one year deal to be the trainer and we'd see where we were after that. So I did Mike my fifteen months, whatever it was. And they were opening up deep south in Atlanta, and they were we were negotiating over money, and they wanted to pay me less because they had found, you know, I think Bill demont now snow at agreed to be fulltime relocate to those locations, and they wanted me to go back and forth between the two and I wasn't going to be full-time. So they're like, well, we can't pay you more than the other guys. They've agreed to work for this. I'm like, I'm not willing to take a pay cut, and Danny Davis was the one that said you know what? It's like you could probably. Just do what I'm doing on your own at home, and the being home was, was starting to appeal to me. And so at that point at a time I decided, you know, I'm gonna take the gamble and then start my own school. And Danny Davis, I owe him a debt of gratitude for the suggestion and the encouragement and I really didn't know how would go, you know, I obviously was optimistic but I, I didn't know and, you know, touch wood, you know, we're fourteen years in now and enrollment state good. I've got you know, people from I got I think I had like thirteen different countries. Now I've got, you know, started this class with seven different countries in it, and people come from all over the world. And I, I try to teach them less about the moves and more boat, the understanding that business and working because you can always add more bells and whistles to your tool belt, if you don't understand..

"Like I know this girl and when. You find that people are like, Manny. She stiffer you. Okay. And everybody's like she doesn't touch me. I'm like, yes. That's like that's mcgurn. It's like she followed him footsteps. And it's it makes me really proud. And like you talked about with, with Charlotte and Jan I've talked about this, on the pod before when people come and ask you advice and u u k well, and you give it to them, and then they don't even try to implement it. That, that's the person that I'm, I'm not going to have open ears for anymore. I'm not gonna be, you know, a person that you can come to now. But if you at least try it see if it works if it doesn't, hey, bad on me. Sorry if you've got barest out there, but if you try it, and you go, and you see it's almost like people here, the dog whistle because I've had instances, where people ask me advice or whatever. And I said, okay, if you try this here, try this here, just lay out a little bit here, try that they're, and then watch it and see it happen. And then hear the crowd react in the way that thought it was going to. And it's almost like their head turned sideways like oh shit. And those are the people that you, you wanna continue to help, right. Yeah. And you you very quickly. No one's that when they ask for your advice, they just want to hear how much you liked them thought they were good. Yeah. And there's some that'll take the advice but they really don't use it. And then there's those ones that and to me, it's, it's the ones that then ask a question. Those ones, I really like because again, I don't have all of the answers, Jay doesn't have all needed at them. But you know what if one of these guys is telling me something I need to think about. And if I question it, it's like it's almost you ask them go. Okay. Well, I was thinking this, why did you say that way? It's like I'm fine with that. Because it's like that's how you learn. And you can tell the ones that put the fought in and like you say when you see that it clicked in their head and go. It's a really cool feeling because that's how the business is going to stay alive. And stay great is each new generation learning from the previous, and in many cases, taking the next generation even new heights. But you've gotta learn from those that were there, I think that's probably with every job. You know what I mean? You gotta learn from those who made the mistakes, and learn from it. And great point made the mistakes. I it's not like anybody's infallible, every, you know, we all made those mistakes to learn those things or somebody buzzed us, whether it was Jerry, or whether it was, you know, Johnny Smith or by showing us in the ring, and the, you know, that, that's one of the great things in the time that we came up as there was still a boatload of guys who had so much more experience than us that we could get in there with and learn with. I mean, we're can Rick Martel, you know, seven days a week for three months. Man, you're gonna learn. And that's harder to come by now. Yeah. I can I can just imagine. I you know, I, I never got to work with Rick, but, you know, obviously just the amount of knowledge and experience, that dude had, you guys got to do those, those tag runs with him and dawn. And it's you know you just you've got to take advantage of those moments..

"Because Bill at the time was having headed shoes he'd had far too many concussions, and we had, you know, I took care of them. But we always worked in the super kick. And I remember at one point, you know, I'm thinking, Danny was mainly. It was just called him coach the trainer. You know, coach came down, and he's like mad. He's like, Bill. How many times you can get kicked in the head like this? You just sort of rolled over looked at him. He's like every night he doesn't touch me. Oh, okay. Think to a unique talked about, you know, people requesting to work with you coming off of injury and things like that. But you also became somebody that the office relied on when they were bringing in prospects and they were high on these prospects. Had big plans for them, and they would put them with you to learn and to have good matches and gain confidence to write guys like Brocker Shelton or, or what have you. But what was your feeling in the sense that you got that the, there was a trust level? They're putting superstars with you of that, caliber. Yeah. No, sadly, I never got to work with Shelton it little love to who was damn good. No. But I you know, I worked many of Randy Orton first match, I was first match on TV. I did you know, several show in television loops with them, and I think I was Brooks. I hope show loop on the main roster, I could be wrong but I know I worked before he was on television, and, you know, they specifically it's like we have big hopes for this guy. He needs to learn experience. It's like go out there and you know get fifteen twenty minutes. Okay. And, you know, we went out and Brock was it a hell of a learning curve? He was really good. And, you know, the first night, and we had our match, and I came back and sat down on my right, you know, change the way you do this do this a little bit more do this little bit less than fix this. And he's like, okay and the next night, it's like anything I told him was fixed. So I gave them a couple more pointers. And you know, it was so easy to work with because he was really good. He was frighteningly large and strong. It didn't hurt me at all. And, you know, I think to this day, it's like, you know, when I did the Jericho's twenty-fifth anniversary at Madison Square Garden rock was there. And it's like. He always goes that it was way to come over and say, hi and is friendly with me. Because I think he appreciated that and Randy's always been really good to me. Because again when he got brought up. It's like all right. Let's go there and have a good match and it's like it wasn't the I'm gonna eat up this kid, 'cause I mad, I have to work with his developmental guy. You know, on Sunday night heat. It's like let's go never match kid will. And that's the flip side of it, that I was just going to bring up is, you know, those guys now in the positions there in realize, oh, my gosh. If I had gotten, I don't know, somebody else who was that disgruntled guy who didn't wanna work, this young kid and just ate them up or came back and said, nice shit's. You're not that guy you wanna go and have a good match with everybody. And I think you know being where they are now. They both understand that you know what I mean. Yeah. And in both have really good to me in its and again, it always comes back to Jerry moral, it's like I love that guy. Yeah. But, you know, I was a green kid, it's like Jerry would have been within his rights to, you know, give me one little spot. Be beat me out and go home. But you know, we did twenty minute matches and thirty minute matches where he you know, made me look really good and taught me. And it was I think, because Jerry loved the business, and he wanted to have good matches. And you know, when he didn't have the opponent, he couldn't. So it was like, man..

"Again, you know, the standing suplex I did a few, you know, w. Piledriver. But if like I made a conscious ever, I didn't pick anybody up was over to fifty. Yeah. Because I was around two thirty. I'm like, I just don't think I the one picking somebody up, and if I oh, wait handle by more than say twenty five or thirty pounds. It's like shouldn't be picking me up a ton. And that was just always in, in my mindset of trying to tell believable stories actually total power Brahm. I don't think I pick many people up at all. It was just too much work. I'm good. But it's a really good point because I think somewhere along the line that has been lost just because you can doesn't mean you have to or, or necessarily should or if you do build to it and make it mean something, you know, and a lot of times, just because somebody can do it. They do it. And, and it does get watered down after a while. Yeah. And that's the one thing that with and again with both of you 'cause very say fine line between arrogance and confidence. But, you know, I've always had a very strong belief in my ability to put matches together, and there's very few people throat my career that. I gave them equal billings to speak on putting the ideas together, and both of you were absolutely in that category. And that's the one thing that I really loved, both the singles feud, I did with, with, with Adam, and then the tags unit with Jay and I against adamant and the hoax ter-. It's like there was so many times in that run with Jan is the un-american. It's like we'd be in tags or six man. And it's like Jay, I'd be the to just sitting down putting together. And it's like, yeah, there was never a moment where it's like if Jay says this is what should happen or is believable. It's like I'm always gonna sit down and go okay. We need to listen to this, because, like, you know, gino's and stuff and equally when we did the, the two programs with you at it's like, there's, there's good workers great workers. And then there's those handful, some people have more than one handful, but those minds okay, this guy really knows stuff. And I think that's one of the reasons. Again, I think both of those programs are really good. 'cause the three of us I think, you know, were on that level of respecting each other with, you know, these are good ideas. And I, I think it needs to be said that for the most part, that's because we're all lifelong fans, I think that's when, you know, through those years, and years, and years of watching, and in studying it and then getting in the business and peeling apart layers in the story, and wire they doing this, where I know all three of us thought that way. No Jericho thinks that way. I know you know, like you said, a handful of people that think that way, but I think all of the people I can think of where lifelong fans, do you think that's the case? I think in wondering, I think it certainly is for me. And I know you guys have done the same. I think it's also there are certain people in the business that completely get the whole picture. And, you know, their ideas, aren't what can I do for me young? And I think I know I learned it and I believe you guys to from the Jerry Moro's. That we work with early on, where they obviously, you know, you know, Johnny Jerry gamma news. They knew a thousand times more than we didn't only worked with them. And they were putting stuff together that made us look. Awesome. And it's like that's when the light bulb went off in my head. It's I man, I need to do what they're doing because they're over in really good. And they're making me. Look like I actually know what I'm doing. So whenever I sat down with those working with you, either you guys or whether I'm working with just Joe schmo. It's like it was always the what's the big picture. Not the can I do for meat..

"So to respect for the veteran, I went up, and I said, we're working in just wondering if he hadn't ideas, and he gave me some, and then asked me what my is were told them. And. I was really excited about this match to get this match with Lance on tape. So I had something to send out to promoters and stuff and because Lance was started to build a name. So for me working with him and having that on my resume on tape I could send out. It looked look good. I knew the match will be good. So I remember I wanted to get a certain few, you know, moves in and this one I at time doing like a tilt a world like power slam type thing. So I was like, what this total world. Power slam. Atlanta looks at me and goes are you two hundred and fifty pounds. And then I shot right back to Milan. Are you? See looks at me, just look at it just goes, okay? We'll do it. Don't worry. That was the precursor to our relationship to sign thing. I don't remember that. But I do remember being quite hot, the invasion, paper view. Because again, I never think or take into consideration someone's feelings. When I just spew what I think the fast. We call against edge Christian invasion and we're coming up with the finish and Mike gonna have edge up for the awesome bomb the running bomb. And then the idea gets pitched the J's gonna run in and spear them and in my mind, Jay wasn't big enough to knock over two hundred ninety pound Mike with two hundred and thirty pound edge on his shoulders, and I get up something about, you know, I think you're big enough for that or something. And. Happy about it. I think I think, in my mind, I'd have been like, well, he's distracted and was holding up two hundred forty pounds on the shoulder. So he'd be vulnerable. Amen to that, brother. One thing that, you know with with the business today. That sticks in my craw is that I don't think people take into account, the physical size of nature of people enough, like throughout my career..

How did you sleep last night? Did you spend the night tossing and turning? Do you have the inner stress that keeps you up at night? Maybe it's the stress of thought of losing means a front.
