"But i. I really like that horn idea was the horn idea to when the barbarians are aware attacking to blow horn. That's literally the idea what the burying nevermind khloe haven't talk. What are we going to have the barbarians attack me. What we're going to ask them could be fun. I don't know being. Are we going to kick their ass or ask them for help. Electro says i will happily kick their ass. I don't remember what i just don't know how much we can control the barbarians. We don't need them to do their own thing. And this seems like a very coordinated effort. We talk about this. We did we kind of i- offhandedly talked about maybe getting the barbarians evolved off towards the fighters skilled her own electro. Thank you for. Solve a net on and she walks to the fighters guild door and goes to open it and it opens pretty easily. There is a greeter there who doesn't greet her or anybody else at followed her you especially because they don't know you are. They don't notice you they don't see you. And there are two fighters that look familiar to go with lecco. Yeah yes it looked familiar to you there little burnt and scarred Live them aren't with that party because two of them were burnt up pretty badly and are probably at the infirmary but the fighters guild leader is there. She's sitting at a table Just having some beer that they not have like any healing potions does not help you in that situation not with hellfire. No hoof are bad. And she's just talking with other fighter guild members drinking some ale. She hasn't noticed you guys walked in because elected didn't kick the door open this time. She opened up politely. She's learning that's fair and electro walks rights up to the fighters guild leader and then sits down next to her and she says the you were doing a thing later. We'd like your help. And the fighters guild leader gulps loudly and swallows her aol she wipes her mouth off and she looks over to lecco and she looks she looks at a lecco looking for a whip that she cannot see. She's looking at you and she's like you wrecked four of my men that we're gonna fight and now you want our help. We can help. If that's all it takes a can fix that up. I'm not asking. I'm telling you you're going to help. Or i will burn this place to the ground. And then the fighters guild leader g snaps back like this behind her to the greeting table and then the greeter brings a tray with a cup avail on it and puts it in front of lecco and then the fighters guild leader. Says if you can beat me in drinking this sale then you will have my sword and my shield and alexa says that's pretty weak challenge for a fighter and the fighters guild leader. Says no if you want my help. We're going to do this. And elected looks a you and then fighters go leader. She says what does this. Swill taste like me to drink it. No no what is does taste like is going to make me sick. Looks like aol like you know just to lightly alcoholic beverage. Alcohol i right. It is swill compared to broacha. Well the like a relatively simple challenge while you want to do is open up the back of your throat. There's a lot of foam in an aol and Just kind of let it go down your gullet. If you know how big your insides of your mouth are that have you. Have you had alcohol before electro. No no not mortal alcohol. And you'll probably be fine. We usually drink wine from my father's vineyard. And we don't we don't make any spirits with the wheat or anything like that and then fighters guild leaders starts chuck a little bit because she thinks she's gonna win this because there's a little farm girl here that's never had beer before electoral. You've never had it before. It's probably not gonna taste great but you know problem. Make sick if you're used to wine. Oh okay so this should be easy. Then so electro picks up her mug and she looks at over. She looks over at the fighters guild leader. And she says we go on your mark. And then the fighters gil leader says we will go on the count of three and then a bunch of other fighters gather around the table. Because there's going to be a drinking contest. And then the fighters guild leader goes one. Elective picture glass up to. She puts it up closer to her mouth. And then the fighters go leader says three an electro tilt your head back opens her mouth wide. Her jaw dislocates like a snake. She puts the whole mug in her mouth. And swallows close her mouth and the fighters guild leader. Her mouth goes wide open and she drops her mug and she says what demon spawn to the city. I dunno demon spawn. Just just my good friend. And then electro taking offense to demon spawn slams. Her fist on the table breaks a big chunk off of table couple of fighters backup watching this little farm girl break this table. She eat the mug and the whole fence. He's chrysler often does. She never drank us out. The weighting factor. She's lucky that she didn't just pick her up by her stupid book and head and put her in there ourselves. Hell of a poop later. The fires gills leaders said. That didn't go quite as planned How many of us do you need. And then electro to you and they all bet like you bitch like She says how many were going to be at the heist. And then all of the fighters around now notice you and jump back as you just appeared out of thin air. Go to grab their weapons. An elective says. I wouldn't do that if i were you. And then they ease up a little bit fighters guild leaders still looking at electro in disbelief that she swallowed a whole mug of ale by dislocating. A snake maybe. Don't be such a cocky bitch. I'd like to use harris embrace. I feel like and the apply. Notice anything you don't think you chapel on. I have five stations back door door. There.

"Tuned spotify wherever else are Mandela Saint's remains GonNa make you laugh I guarantee you. please. Focusing more on his investments and he's done now and he does work some indy dates with a young man named on callous who's now in a position of power with impact wrestling at the time he's wrestling as the natural they're going to team up and Manitoba. And they're even going to have some indy matches with Tito Santana. But in ninety six, he's. No longer wrestling don callous is teaming with him as the supermodels. And they're feuding with a couple of young upstarts named Adam impact and Christian. Cage who are GONNA go on to become edge and Christian. And we don't have an exact date on this sometime in the late nineties rick says that Paul Heyman. Tried to get him to come in AC w but he didn't want to. And Heyman even offered to let him work with whoever you wanted to do whatever he wanted but Martel said, no thanks. But. Then magically in ninety seven, there's talks about him coming back to the WWE. And Markelle says that the original plan was to come in and do a supermodels tag team with who we know is going to go on to become Siris on a CW don callous. He says, they would have been baby faces, but Cyrus would've turned heel on eventually. And Martel asked for a yearly deal. But when the contract arrived, it wasn't what he had been discussing. And it mentioned something along the lines of he needed to prove himself for three months. Ultimately we know don callous went to the WWF Rick Martel did not. He goes to the WCW We'll get into that in a minute. What do you remember about? Rick Martel being discussions to come in and ninety seven He remember what the? Issue was contract or if that's even accurate. And then lastly, what can you tell us about the supermodels idea of him Don Accounts? Well, the idea by the supermodels believed that was something that Rick the idea that Rick Ed you know we've done the model rick. Martel Salihi. He'd come any found this guy dom callous and said, they had great chemistry together wanted to bring don in as. A tactic. Because Rick looking you know wanted work attack. Damon. All he wanted to work fulltime is a singles anymore and we discussed it laid out the idea for it actually had. vignettes plan for them, and this is where you know Vinci's laying out. the vignettes them down on Miami beach and was like. It I and I see you guys you're walking down the beach. You're just wearing a thong and you go down the go down the beach and you have all the girls looking at you and you kick sand in the guys and it's a cross between. Charles Atlas in being bullies and all the women going wild. All this shit been saw is a heel. And They, both were just naturally you know heels. but the funniest part was is after is lane out these then yet and pat comes to me and he says. Bruce as is I don't get it. The Vince is hung up on these guys at the tongs I. Don't know why why can't just go barefoot on the beach and what do they got to be wearing the tongs Want Pat. Now he's actually talking `bout like thongs which like the. Asked loss. Chains juice string Jones yet yeah. Yeah, and he had he had. The walks away the shower shoes the tongs. Had explained pat with the tall was Oh, I thought he meant like a grill tool he meant like flipflops. Yeah Yeah, but the PATS. In passing the way the thongs. I speak I speak Pat Right Yeah I've seen you guys luck a couple of cats actually. J.. J. I would you. So What it Martin WanNa come in here or it was just the contract. What happened was is we sent we sent contracts out and they were the standard contracts. Gay I I don't believe at that point. That, we were doing the downside guarantees I, could be wrong but I don't think that their contracts were for any guaranteed money and again I could be wrong but if they were they were low and. WCW At the time was offering guaranteed contracts right. to come in what for them and rick us that it's time to to negotiate and and actually he really eating negotiate heard about it. Through the grapevine the Rick Martel was. Talking Eric Bischoff and we called Rick. So what you do and he's as well. He was not happy with this contract and I'm going to go WCW. Those that simple and I Don't know if he was planning on bringing callous with him. But CAL did not go with him and that's when we ended up using him For the. Now God with the Truth Commission? Yeah. So. Help me understand though you know we've heard a different times. The Vince could be very competitive. About. Not Losing talent to WCW. In Ninety seven does he just not have the luxury of the cash to really compete and so he just has to know and that was that's what I mean. It's. A correct myself because Rick Rick, did not come back and US trying to negotiate. But I'm saying when when Vince here's I'm going to WCW Rick was Oregon Okay I got you so as far down Emma heads it was it was already gone man and and it was we probably would have we probably would've gone Rick said Hey.

"January. We get the royal rumble marseils got another digging in on Tito Santana by helping eliminate him and Santana was attempting to throw martell out of the ring but. Of course, ultimately, Warrior would be the guy who martell he still working Brutus beefcake on house shows he never interacts with him on pay per view besides survivor series eighty nine. I guess this is just that different where you really made your money set up how show matches, right? Live events was the bread bonner. That's that was your business model and pay per views were a special event. But she spent your television time and everything else building up to the live event model. Things. Really GONNA get cooking here, February Tenth Nineteen Ninety on superstars we see rick appear on this show called the brother love show. And this is where would introduce the world to his own fictional brand of Cologne arrogance. Often carries it to the ring and a large Atta miser and sprays it in the eyes of his opponents to blind him. Regularly. Getting himself to huge but sometimes picking up a win that way too. and. The baby face commentators are always saying how bad smells and the heels are acting like they loved it. Tammy up what were you guys actually putting in these arrogance gimmicks. Evidence. Goddamn spring water year Long No. I love you for that. Lynnwood throw in some just bad pallone shift so that the folks around ringside could smell. Some brutal actually smell good. Some watered-down, brute. Good Shit Terada I'm best used to wear some fucking truecar back in the day. Didn't you? saw. The it all the time in the company Martell makes us singles pay per view match debut at Wrestlemania six beating Coco beware with the Boston crab, it's pretty remarkable to think that. He turned heel the year before, and during all that time he's still never had a singles match on pay per view. The. April twenty eighth edition. is where we started. Pay Per views matches on that time in nineteen, eighty nine or whatever they argue that I'm just saying is fears removed from being the Awa World Champ one of the last ones against the mannered but. Still. Here he is here and we mentioned him earlier the vignettes are going to start airing. Saturday nights main of April twenty eighth. He's riding horseback. He's picking up a couple of women he's driving off with them in a convertible. This has had your fingerprints all over it. You love these type of skits and I think everybody listening to this grew up on. Absolutely it was a way to just. We had the the Cologne we actually I think we. I. Think we did sell it maybe maybe not I don't know we did other Cologne ship and we were going to sell. We were actually going to bottle and sell arrogance man that would have been. So fucking great. On sell the big atomised though shared out to somebody who's listening to this who has a Cologne business my DM's are open and I got an idea here. on August Eleventh Summer Slam report an the Tito Santana and Rick Martel is finally going to happen at Summer Slam. For several weeks, we're getting all the hype for this match and then on August twenty six, this announce that the warlord would replace Rick Martel in the mass did were previous modeling engagement. And so now warlord works with Tito. Roller gets the win and five and a half minutes with the running power. Slam. By the way, the announcement is made on the twenty sixth. The show is the twenty seventh. One I give us the payoff to the Santana Martell view summer slam here. Didn't need to. A while promoted and then not do it. Because it was a way to promote just a he'll move nobody was paying for that match. Okay. That's fair and it was a way to just get the arrogance of the model, Rick Martel that he pulls out at the last minute and I want to say that there was some supermodel at the time that had done something wrong. Show okay. Now he's this big supermodel and he just no shows. Dislike that other guy who good. Yeah Yeah I think it was actually a female but still I mean I get it now. Now, that's a great explanation. Following, Summer Slam Rick begins to regularly appear on the brother love show. and. He's at the beginning of the segments before brother Love's bring main guests for the week and a special report segment on. September. Thirtieth showed mortels appearances on the brother love show each time spraying his arrogance Cologne. And he explained he only shared arrogance for people who deserve it. Like his friend brother love. How much fun did you have working only segments with rig? Loved it because we would always come up with some kind of different bullshit to do it was The Fun thing about brother love at the time was I would literally produce it in directed is I was walking to the podium. I would walk in Tim Walberg the hand held camera, and I forget the other one was, but they would walk with me shooting and I would be telling them exactly. Okay I'm GonNa do this. I'm going to do that here. Start here come around to my left I work to you that I'm going to turn back over here and I was just walk out and and give it to them on the way to the to the podium before I would start. So it was just fun shit to do. That we would try and come up with different ways to. Showcase Martell. Did you. Mean you haven't talked about this a while but. Is You have to I mean you didn't have a script back then this is just you free Stalin. I usually had a lot of scripts. Okay. You know what I mean here's my question I guess do you have to run run any of that by anybody? Would you just talk it with three with vents or something or not so much? Talk no I just did it. I was I. Mean at the time I was in charge of the of the shows as well. Brush side of things so. If he wanted to change it he and that. Brogden obviously could. Change Alcohol we cut the damn thing, but it was just that's what I did..

"Yeah the FERMO afterwards, you're lucky. The being the gentleman that I am I just walked off. That could have been a lot worse for you Tito Santana. And it's kind of fun because I think Rick in an interview once where he said that Vincent Pat didn't really see him as a heel they thought no, one would buy it. and. Martell says he even threatened to quit offense wouldn't at least let him try it. And even gave his notice and few days later gets a call from Vince and PAT and they're a little more willing. So he gave them to come to TV, but they wanted to do baby face promos again. So he tries to quit again. This time Vince calls him home and come to an agreement that he'll turn heel but vince says he needs a gimmick. And martell says. Really thought about that. This is something that has always fascinated me when one of the boy sort of put their foot down and says, nope, that's not what I want for my character. I, mean famously allegedly. said in a meeting once with Vincent says something are here's Hey I want you to be my next all Hogan. And apparently seems like I'd rather be a heel and that just I don't know amazes me Mike what a prime spot. Why do you think? Martell felt. So strongly that he wanted to be a heel and he couldn't get it, he was going to quit. It wanted to be healed because he I don't think he'd ever been to heal before. Right and it was a challenge to him. It was something he felt he could pull off with the personal issue with Tito and look who doesn't want to be a he'll. Be In a heels just so much easier than. And it's baby face. Well he's GonNa Samantha's He'll turn on April twenty second when he's introduced a slicks latest protege of course, in this era of the company if you're a bad guy, you've got a manager. From there, of course, he's feeding Tito over the next year losing to him in the finals of the King of the ring. Tournament in October in Rhode Island. And his eighty nine comes to close. The decision is made to end Martellus association with slick. Talk about why he felt slick was the right guy and ultimately why those separation? In a run its course I don't know that slick did. really anything. Positive from our tell it was A. A pairing let everyone know the mar tells now he'll because he has a heel manager. and. It just to me it just didn't work. Plus the idea of the of the model candidate started. Man I absolutely fucking love this model character. Though I do WanNa mention they November twenty third survivor series and eighty nine dusty Rhodes Bruce beefcake. Tito Santana and the Red Rooster on one side. Big Man Honky, Tonk man bad news, Brown Rick Martel on the other. Man. That's a lot of talent. A Lot Hall of famers. And Red Rooster. Around the same time Martel starts to position himself as a fashion model and even referred to as fashion model rick. Martel. And he appears on the interview stage wearing clothing some fancy suited and booted gear here and Lord Alfred Hayes, it's going to describe this beautiful, Atar his very British tone of voice. And during the appearances marseils coat was cut up by Brutus, the barber beefcake, and that sets the two of them up for a program and early ninety and somewhere along the way they dropped the word fashion. And just start referring to him as the model. And Martel even admits at first he wasn't sold on the idea but his wife reminded him at least it's not a rooster. That Gimmick was already taken somebody flubbed it. What do you think of the Model I? Absolutely love the vignettes would just saw some of those on a bonus show that you and I watched Saturday night's main event but. Dude this is great stuff I love the character I can't believe he was even remotely hesitant. Yeah the character was great in the buildup in the vignettes and everything else about it were great and gave Rick something to sink his teeth into. the accent. Comes across as very arrogant and and he could talk down his nose at people Little. Insight to the model that in the beginning to actually all through it Martell war lot of Vince. Is Old suits. It had them against game suits very similar embody tight. and Marcel Adam tailored to fit himself and. So, when you go back and you look in some of the shit that martel was wearing and especially in the The Suit Department or?.

"Well. Here's something that Oh, before we get to that, let me mentioned he is he's working with Nick Balk Winkle. Mr Saito Jimmy Garvin King Tonga Bill Robinson, WADA guys. But really as eighty five's getting going, he's working a lot with Jim Garvin. And on June ninth nine, hundred, eighty, five, believe it or not looks like Rick Martel is GonNa lose his world title to of all People Michael PS Hayes or what you know what the damn decision was reverse. So Martin tells the champ. Dude. Dave do he's going to work a lot with Michael Hayes over the summer and surprisingly enough although this feels like that would be styles clash. Rick had a good time working with the bird. Michael PSA's work in singles is not exactly something I would have thought. Would have been I. Don't know the right fit for him and eighty four. What do you remember about? Michael having a singles ruin is working punch fucking hurt. Jesus Christ I'd rather hand in fucking hall often just punched me in the mouth is hard as he could cause fucking work in punches will brutal. But look and Michael we we always get Michael Hard time. He's not he's not the greatest worker in the world, but he was without a doubt, one of the greatest talkers in the world and add charisma the as the knew how to talk people into a building. Right so some of the the quote, Oh, my God four, hundred, seventy, thousand stars in the Tokyo Dome and one time they were Oshkosh yoke do we and they had this matching what forty nine minutes and the rooftop there were. No hang on. It's different. It's different of will guys can do a bunch of moves in different things Michael knew how to work move Michael Knew how to draw? Yeah. So that's the difference guitar. Through sure. Yes. He did he good and he did. Well. He's GonNa wind up he being right Martell. RUN OUNCE BY? Working with Boris Sukhov Jerry Lawler, Larry, his VISCO, pretty notable opponents, but perhaps on bigger. Than October twenty, first nineteen, eighty five this went down in Tokyo Japan and it's decided to have an AWA versus in w a world title match. Rick Martel on one side Ric flair on the other. And Martel said he had a lot of respect for flair what he did and he thought they had a great match and of course, after thirty four minutes both are counted out. But still that's kind of a big deal. That's almost like after MAG level stuff, there is not. Yeah was from time to time different promoters like Eddie Gram in Florida Vince did it in New York where they had the champion versus champion stuff and It was always heralded. His is big deal until after while the after mags I think in my opinion at least from wrestling fan. you didn't have the the rag sheets gossip column sheets shows that time. So you read what you read the magazines. Every champion versus champion match like that. Ended in. Either a time limit draw. Account out or a double disc there was never a Finnish never village. And but for the market for the individual market that that worked. When word got out at least. Probably in the minority because everybody didn't read wrestling magazines It's it's a small vocal minority. He's to me. It was like you know they're not gonNA. They're not going to unify the titles are not gonNA. Just wondering what double finish they're going to do on this match right still it was great to watch the the champions go at it. Well he's GONNA get tired of being champion. He's going to hold the bell for about a year and a half and he says he's tired of working for Verne who he felt like was making things difficult for no reason. But the real reason I'm sure is Verne's losing market share Vince is expanding and taking over and. Martel police as a result, burn was an awful boss. And he starts being program to work with Stan Hansen. Roller. Coaster works a series of matches Hanson and always found himself with some extra bruises and bumps plan for. But on December twenty ninth at the meadowlands in East Rutherford. New Jersey Martell drops the title to Hanson. Listen depending on who you believe some people say. It's not stands fall he was just blind as a bat. and. Then your old pal. JBL. Sometimes. Questions that like maybe saying Hanson was just to say this Mike to hurt motherfuckers. Let's say you. I think he's combination of both but Stan was the type of guy that if you fought him in hitting back as hard as he hit you, he would loosen up and work with you. So. I think that stand with just want to get in there and see all right which got in kid you're gonNA fight me back and if you fight me back, then we can go out and have a match if not I'm GonNa fucking guzzle you. And Lot old-timers were like that. But that worked for Stan and Stan was unique talent. But yeah, he was he was blind as a bat. It's like Doug it. I don't think doug ask mean bone in his body I, mean, he could but you know. Jim duggan's Great Guy Ryan a helvin attraction but Jim was blind as a bat and Jim would. Fuck consuming that two by four. It was up to you to get out of the way right and how you were going to take it sometimes Jim with their those close lines and shit and chess be off a little bit. He'd do it. I know Duggan didn't do it to say, Hey, hit me back or anything it's just Jim sometimes misjudge. But same time on the other side of it he was ellen worker to sustain will stand but Yes dan, rough you up if you let him. Well. Let's talk about what's next you know once mortels done with the AWA..

"So much let's turn to oil now crude remains below thirty dollars a barrel and WTI briefly traded below its lowest settlement price since two thousand three earlier that's as the corona virus pandemic threatens to bring the global economy to a standstill making things worse is Saudi Arabia boosting exports by pumping more than ten million barrels a day in the coming months let's get more details with our energy reporter Dan Martel in Singapore it's it's been a wild ride in the crude market down how much further it might we go it seems like it at this moment in time there isn't a lot in terms of positive catalysts for oil prices now chasing it intact we still have a lot lower to go before we start to keep floors if Saudi Arabia and Russia decide to keep producing like they are right now that means we're going to have to go low enough to make a filling up basically every storage tank in tanker in the world profitable and then even lower to the point where it's now possible to produce oil from wells are already been drilled already that means what is the need to go down to twenty dollars a barrel maybe even lower to the teens people even possibly into the single digits so without any sort of upcoming possibility of yeah Saudi Arabia and Russia making nice it doesn't look like there's a lot of room to go up mmhm then in terms of the impact I mean you mentioned some of the potential price points at Missouri says the crude price could go negative wants to storage tanks are full standard chartered is talking about dipping into the twenties in below that potentially but what about the time line here I mean how long would it take to clear the amount of Volvo over supply I mean if they do agree the Russians and the Saudis and OPEC plus if they agree quickly can they fix this quickly well the other problem is we're dealing here not only with a supply shock and Russian Saudi Arabia but also with this you know once a generation demand shot because the coronavirus so in the near term even if there is some sort of agreement you have this huge reduction in demand it started back up again in China but it's just gonna drop in Italy and Spain and the U. S. as these sort of self isolation measures take hold the rest of the world so you know for the next order you know first quarters basically went out second quarter is already looking pretty bad and demanding also we're looking easily into the second half of the year and so any kind of price recovery but possibly you know the the upside is you look out on a much longer vision after twenty twenty one and beyond you know a lot of production is gonna get shut off a lot of capital is gonna be canceled and so prices are gonna have to rise higher than to be able to to reprint on new production future get down I wanted to ask you exactly about this point in the relationship between U. S. shale and capital markets it's something that I know you follow the price dropping crude alone is painful enough for the oil patch over in the U. S. but now you have the strains in credit markets as well how bad is it going to get for you I shall well it's gonna get really bad here she was built I just hundreds of small companies that access cheap cheap credit right back after this initial crisis and they were able to go out drill a lot and you basically just drill without having to produce a lot of free cash flow to pay it off for a while that's you know basically hitting the fan right now and those companies are you know over day and they don't have a lot of cash coming in to be able to pay that off you can see a lot of bankruptcies especially stress continues on for the next couple months but in the long term you know the the actual geology the land acreage is there and good companies are going to know it's there so you're gonna see some consolidation bigger companies clever survived this will be able to pick up some cheap scraps and be able to producing
"martel" Discussed on Something to Wrestle with Bruce Prichard
"We posted earlier this week at Pritchard. Show if you've got questions about Sherri Martel Michael Aldridge wants to know during her Tom with the debris. F- Shihri ever rumored to or she ever actually in a relationship with you need the wrestlers. And Bruce I gotTa tell you about half the questions that we got about Sherry or personal life because we know so little. I mean I didn't know that she lived with her mother in Alabama and I live in Alabama and I'm a big wrestling fan and we don't know you know who she rode with or who she traveled with or if she was in a romantic relationship with any of the talent or what any of real life look like. And you tell us about any of that. No 'cause she was she did the right way. Shanta Private Life Louis private. She had someone that she was saying. I think we gotta we gotta May guy like once or twice. Maybe Brigham around. We separate. She didn't want him around the wrestling business. And you know that that was her life that was her other life That she liked to have separate but as far as you know there were rumors early on that. She might have had relationships with different guys. I don't know who But from my point of view for me working with the man she was always professional as Hell. And you didn't. You didn't have that you didn't have that to worry about. And she had a significant other. They weren't married that I know of She was that private but she she brought were on me like me and Randy and Liz Internet you know what's true online but the Internet says that the fellow's name was Robert and allegedly She's married twice and I think one of the Times it's been rumored. The Euro POW Booker T. Actually gave her away and he may have. Yeah but doubled again. That was the the she kept it quiet. She kept personal. She kept private which I agree with that saw. I mean you've always you've you've done that we've talked a little about your wife. You're on the show and she's never been involved in the business or anything like that. How do you think she would do? And today's You know women's wrestling. I think she'd flourish. Oh my God Sherry would flourish be one of the greatest heels ever. She was but in this environment today. My God it was made for Shark Sherri Martel. Sherry was so far ahead of time Carlton Banks Whilst what will share his ethnicity. What she biracial never heard that before? Not that I know of. I don't know but never heard that before. Well if you a few of our listeners. A same that she there may be. You know HOT HALF WHITE HALF BLACK. Others have guessed. Maybe she's half Indian half white. I don't think it matters in the end. I think people just ask those questions so hey she was like me Mary Kate wants to know. Is there someone you would consider this generation sharee racks good question of Shit? I don't know holy cow. I I can't think of one. Tremendous question from drew landry while Sherry could easily play the. He'll roll incredibly well. Was there any talk of her being face? I think Sherry could've pulled that off as well too. I think Sherry could have been that bad ass stone. Cold Steve Austin type of Character that the audience would have eaten up and loved because they respected her big bake rights and we know. Sean had a lot of sunny days but do you think he ever had any sensational nights. I beat Asa. I have no idea. it's it's a fun idea to to sort of pay homage to Sherry and I am curious if you think. Wwe will ever honor her in the way they have some of the other towns before her light. Moolah and Mae Young allegedly Jericho Recommended events years ago. The sensational invitational like a memorial battle. Royal Do you think we could ever see something like that. In the in the company never say never and that's something I think that could be received. Positive way she was she was unique. Man It's It's one of those weird deals where she's one of those talents where where everybody else you know. Feels like we know everything about him. She's one of the interesting Niklas and I think that's probably so this missing from a lot of wrestling today. Like there's a lot of mystery with Cherry and that adds to the the interest and intrigue and I don't know I think it has another layer to To making someone a draw. Would you agree with that? Yes and that they'll special qualities can't put your finger on that is what makes a difference and you feel it but you can't necessarily explain it in. That's that's the beauty of this business. And that's the beauty of true talent Ritchie rights and Sherry had some inter-gender loser get spanked matches against Cornell smokey mountain hypothetically what would have sounded like when Corny pitch those matches. I even go there ladies and gentlemen. We appreciate you tuning in this week. 'cause we tried to pay homage and do Justice Bao one of my all time favorite performers. Think one of the unsung heroes of professional wrestling SHERRI MARTEL. A true trailblazer In an industry where everybody claims to be the first. I think Sherry stands alone. I think she was absolutely phenomenal as the first female he'll manager and wwe. And I'm glad she got to be honored at the hall of fame before it was too late. You know when she was still with us today. Certainly she would have the ability to contribute. I mean she would not been an old lady today. I mean she died at just forty nine years old a real shame. And there's lots of fun photos out there for us to remember her by as a famous photo of her and WanNa ric flair's robes and famous photo of her. The undertaker were in there in full. Gimmick just really one of the all time greats universally respected by the boys to an industry where it's a a male dominated industry by far. I've never mental old timer. Who had anything great things to say about Sherri Martel and that's really a testament because that's not always the case. This is the business where a lot of guys can't wait to each other. That was not the rap on Sherri Martel wasn't absolutely not. She was a extremely again extremely great talent and she was well liked so she was able to perform and she wasn't an asshole in the back. I think she went out of her way to get along and making work with everyone. You're making it work right now with your health insurance. And we hope that you're not overpaying but unfortunately and historically and even rather ironically health conscious of overpaid and subsidize those who are self conscious mess not a conspiracy. Theory is just how life insurance works until health. Iq health like he was going to use both science and data to secure lower rates for people..

"Your clothes in. You need debate. And I think that Sapphire was just self conscious about taking a shower at the arena in front of Sherry I. That's the only thing that we could we could think of. And I remember Liz trying you know trying to mediate that a little bit She asked me to mediate. It wasn't getting involved in then Sherry took it upon herself. Said you're not gonNA shower. I'm GonNa get you in the shower Sherry drug her into the shower interns shower on and proceeded to help her bathe. I don't know the name of I don't remember what town it was in. I can picture the I can picture the backstage picture. The locker room wherever they remember. Liz coming over to a randy and I were dresses. You guys got to get in here and stop Sherry and it's like was. She's got Sapphire in the shower. She's turned the shower on his basically giving Sapphire shower. Randy and I looked each other. You weren't exactly. Do you expect us to do what do you? What do you want to go in there and fight Sherry So Jack Lanza. Who was the agent went in and and calm things down and everything was good after. I mean like they got the card. They were fine that night but it was One eighty got new gear and change your gear and wash from point going forward. Look when you're in the car with somebody and you're in the ring with overnight and they're not taking care of their hygiene it it. It can be rough Sherry briefly goes to smoky mountain. Wrestling Helps Tracy smothers for this feud with Brian Lee. And Tammy Sich of course we know it's going to be the future sunny just a wrestles. Jim Cornell and a few inter-gender matches long from that And then she goes. Dc W ninety three. She managed to Shane Douglas. There she turns on Douglas in a tag match with Brian. Pitman COSTING DOUGLAS. The match on behalf of Rick Flair and At the November to remember on November Thirteenth Sherry loses the Q. and She winds up finding an opportunity in nineteen ninety-four to work with Gary Juster at a WCW television typing and then quickly. It's an opportunity to sign with the company so it's pretty cool that she bounces back The next year she's on TV. She makes her television debut. Wcw On the April twenty third edition of Saturday. Night she sensuous Sherri here. She can't be sensational. Sherri and her goal in an interview with jeans she says is to find a man that can bring her the world title and she sitting ringside for a world title match with Ric Flair and Barry Windham Eventually we see that she's got staying face paint. It looks like she's going to be with staying unification match up between himself and Ric flair. Of course it's a double cross Famously she takes a huge bump From staying in this match. But at the end of the night she's aligned with the nature boy ric flair as a great time managing him then the Harlem Heat Fast forward to the end and she is relieved of her duties in July. Nineteen ninety-seven seven. Did you see any of her run in? Wcw A little bit. But when I say a little bit very little You know a lot of it. In my opinion of what I did see was rehash other than the stuff. She did with Harlem. He which I did enjoy and I thought that that was some pretty entertaining. Stuff thought Sherry brought the best out of those guys and made them even more unique tag team and made them stand apart from the crowd But beyond that. I really really didn't pay that much attention to it and I was. I was in contact with Sherry. Probably every three or four months. Just say see how she was doing and you know by your time and I think that will get to a point where we can get back well ultimately it never happened and we'll talk about all that but there was a noticeable decline in her appearance where you wondered if she okay on WCW it was it was visible even back then at least to me in my opinion in early ninety nine. She's in a mixed tag match for the Apocalypse Wrestling Federation Heavyweight Championship Missy Hyatt would pin cherry to win the title that's Real In October of ninety nine. She's only now infamous heroes of wrestling pay per view. She's GonNa Managed Greg Valentine against George the Animal Steele. He's also in ninety nine. Going to be awarded. The Awa Superstars Women's Championship in two thousand. She pops up. Wcw for three appearances. The first of which is sold out two thousand she's watching Ringside Crispin. Wa Beats said vicious to win the world title She's also on the January nineteenth edition of Thunder. She's got a match with Medusa where she would lose in her last appearance and WCW she would have a match with Mona the future molly holly she would also lose she pops back up the WBF. Two thousand five where she famously takes part in a pretty interesting little piece of business were Shawn Michaels and Kurt. Angle are getting ready for the Wrestlemainia 21-match I thought this was great stuff. Man whose idea was this and until everybody about the storyline best. I remember. It was all Brian de words Thought about looking back at their past and who in Shawn's pass could come back in you know? Be a thorn in his side so the idea was sensational sherri would be perfect. It was a nice way to open the door for Sherry to put her foot back in and get that exposure and it was a little bit of a test to see. Can she still go? Can she still do it? Is there something more that we could utilize because as a performer? She always been very versatile and this was an opportunity to maybe use Oliver Talents. I don't think that she had the shouldn't have to snap in the pep the she used to have. It happens this episode of smackdown. She's singing the parody of Shawn Michaels theme with Kurt Angle Angle puts her in the ankle. Great stuff that set up the WRESTLEMAINIA 21-match fast forward a WRESTLEMANIA. Twenty two and that weekend she goes in the wwe hall of fame claiming her rifle spot. It's unfortunate that The WBZ was not on good speaking terms with the Macho man. At the time he would have been the right guy to Dr but Ted. Db there. She got her hall of fame. Ring April two thousand six. What are you remember by her induction speech? Oh my my favorite part about Sheri's induction speeches when she started cutting pro on Eric Bischoff and she talks about going. Wcw W BISCHOFF fire. If I ever see that little weasel I'll do this. I'll do that. Bischoff was in the audience and Eric stood up as I hear. Is She look? She did not know he was in the audience in the genuine shriek from Sherry. Like cheech is cut another promo on him. It was at. Aw It was so fucking enjoyable. I think it was Detroit but Ga Damn it was hilarious. Because he's just it was real. It was real that was the passion and we got exactly what you would have expected out of Sherri Martel Cessation Sherry that night with with that acceptance speech in. You know it really Made you realize how much you Mr later that year she worked for. Tna taping a backstage of and yet trying to offer her managerial services to the free agent. Bobby Rude but aired on September twenty first two thousand six and this was unfortunately her last televised wrestling appearance on June fifteenth. Two Thousand Seven Sherry passed away at her mother's house in mcallen Alabama. She was only forty nine years old. Toxicology report say that she passed away from multiple drugs in her system including extremely high amount of walk. Sokoto Gone Way too soon bruce. What was your reaction when he heard the news that we'd lost Sherri Martel. I cried like a girl man of the people that you had the privilege of knowing in this business in and know as well as I knew sharing being able to travel up and down the road with her work with her intimately That was she was special. She was just really special and being in the car with somebody for long hours working with him every single lie and you get to know instinctively. What what. They're going to say what they're going to do. Yeah I just cried I. It was just so sad because too young too soon and there was you know there was thought of. There's always thought of who could who could help you know Who could hell revitalize and and actually help a women's division and bring it into the entertainment realm that that we wanted and but also understood both ends of entertainment and the sports part of it and working part of it? That was Sherry. So Vince always had a soft spot for sharing. Martel and felt that she was extraordinarily talented and wonderful. Human being all of which she was and Shaq Shaq in she was gone too soon. She hid opened up a beauty parlor. I believe and that was her. Other Love was she won't have a salon and beauty parlor and she had realized that she was doing that but just gone way too soon. And what a waste. It's worth mentioning. Mckell. Alabama is between Tuscaloosa and Birmingham. A very very I mean very small part of Alabama. But he never I mean I never knew much about series real life personal life and I'm sure we'll talk about that but before we do want to mention it was in the observer about a month prior are passing away but the wwe was in talks to bring her back. It was at least an idea floated to bring her back to be the first female agent to work with the women to be more believable and more expressive both inside the ring and ringside. Do you remember hearing rumors of that and two thousand seven. I ended the Raleigh Room because we always just thinking of it. We're always thinking of her and trying to utilize your skills so that that was that was constantly constantly talked about. What do you think her legacy and wrestling is going to be? I mean Willoughby as an entering performer as a manager. I think it's going to be both. I think that she will go. Down is probably one of the most versatile women performers Fuck women performers. She'll she'll go down as one of the most versatile performers in the business just memorable and could deliver every time. Let Sal Scotto twitter..
"martel" Discussed on Something to Wrestle with Bruce Prichard
"Two what did you think of their pairing? I mean when I think of all the guys that she managed through a career nothing really jumps out about her managing Ted. I mean I remember all the macho stuff so vividly are Sean Michael. Stuff very vividly. I remember a lot of the. Wcw STUFF TAT stuff. Some feel like there's a lot of story behind your really wasn't and I don't know that Ted Utilize Sherry nearly as much as randy did a think randy saw the advantages of having Sherry in his corner in exploited that as much he could and I'm not sure that Ted felt the same way. So Ted was in his own right. Just one hell of a talent talker and everything else so. I don't know that Ted embraced it. As much as is randy did they. They clicked the got along. Great to great workers paired together. But you're right for whatever reason it wasn't it wasn't memorable one over the top like Oh my God you remember the time with With all their savage you go right to the ship with warrior. You go right to the shit with dusty. Those are two big big big memorable fucking Ron's in the history of the company much less in their career and Hogan stuff. I mean there's just so much Oh yeah I don't think they even officially ended storyline or broke up their business relationship on. Tv She just started appearing on TV saying she was in love with the newly turned heel Shawn michaels and then she stopped appearing with Ted. Let's talk about Shawn Michaels. For a minute though They're going to break up the rockers. We've talked about that. In a rockers episode available in the archives now at something to wrestle on YouTube dot com but talk to me a little bit about whose idea was to say hey he's going to be he'll we need to make sure people boom besides you know boot and Marty. Janetti through the barbershop glass. Maybe if we put him with a known he'll manager that's tried and true. Wwf WAY WHO fits the bill? Well well Sherry doing. How does she get that opportunity? Well Sherry had worked. Sean Marty with playboy buddy rose and Doug somers in the Awa so there was history there and I remember Shawn always talking about. Oh my God if we only had Sherry on the outside 'cause she did ninety percent of the work for those guys she was able to bump and fly and cut promos and do any and everything that they ever need to do so there was already chemistry there in. I think Vince felt that dressing. Sean up there may be a segment of the audience. No matter what you did with Sean. That was still going to like him. They wouldn't like him if used with Sherry so that was the rationale behind that and putting Sherry in that role try and just again solidify make sure people are gonna Boo Sean. And it's an interesting dynamic. Because it's almost like a cougar. Type thing I think Cher. He's like seven years older than Sean and This is her boy toy so the point that I think that's sherry singing. His original entrance music has a he all right well. Originally originally it was I think Jimmy Hart sang it or the other Jimmy did but then Jimmy and I were sitting there and Sherry was was mouthing the words to it in a said. Hey Jimmy can we have Sherry Sing? It is actually like her Ahmad to Shawn Michaels. And he's like baby. I was thinking exact. Same thing in. We've got Sherry in the studio and had her do the song in it was so bad. It was good that that's what that's what became we. We put her voice on there. That was Romansch Shawn Michaels. And he's just a sexy boy and the rest is history. I'm not bored toll at just a sixty board says cpos. How EXTREME SEAN? This about their pairing. I received a phone call about how they were putting me Sherry and I got the music and stuff like that. I remember the playing the song for me and Sherry gone out on TV and done the Promo talking about me and putting herself with me. I wasn't sure I was trying to figure out who I was. And what I was going to be. In my whole trying to find myself living the rockers and taking time to do this and again Patterson said Look Sherry has been with two guys. Db Aussie and savage both top guys. And if we put her with you she's going to raise your stock. You get to be next to her. That's going to help get you to another level and I was like Oh and then of course sharing our friends from the old awa days it started out with the boy toy thing and then with them putting her and In my corner and sort of giving me a direction But back then. I don't think they were called cougars but clearly. That was the vibe that we were going with and gave me a sexual component. That I wasn't where I was going to have because I was with her. It gave me an opportunity to be in that area and I guess if you're trying to really put him over as the boy toy it made sense if that's the the look is look how good looking I am and flamboyant I am. You'RE GONNA use that to get heat. You needed to be with an attractive older lady in this sort of checked. All the boxes is this. The brainchild of Pat Patterson it feels like a vince. Mcmahon yeah it was it was. It was something the pad come up with. Try TO ENHANCE SEAN. And Take Sean to the next level and I think it did think it helped sean tremendously. So this was one of those you know you talked about. Maybe not maybe not so much. But Sean I thought that Sean Needed Sherry in that regard to take him to the next level great stuff man a really really good stuff They break up eventually late. Nineteen ninety-two when margin? Eddie grabs the mirror. Shawn michaels would pose in front of and try to hit. Sean with it Sean Paul Sherry in front of him. So Marty Watson Hitting Sherry with it. I hated to see him. Break up especially after a Salisbury Strut that ass to the Ring Summer Slam Ninety two. I didn't know that women could wear drawers like that as a little eleven year. Old Boy in Alabama was a special day for me. Bless your little heart that'd be great donald transition to a spot but they're not a sponsor this week so let's keep it moving while break them up here. I think it was time. I think it was time for for Sean looking at his career. And Sean feeling that you know what I've gone and done as much as I can in shopping that he was going to be stronger on his own she's not on TV again until the ninety three royal rumble. She's in a neutral corner for the match between Shawn and Mardi. She tries to Sean Shoe. But she misses and hits. Marty that leads Sean Win. She finds herself into talk corner. Wrestlemainia nine during a smash. Shaan he had Lou Nova Sean in his corner after the match Luna would attack Sherry and that goes down the trainer's room backstage and she spends the remainder of the year aligned with the talk is going eight her in her feud with loon of Sean and Bam Bam bigelow and while she still a part of the company she's working with the US W. A. Doing the invasion angle where she's randy savage's corner during his match with Jerry lawler while she's down there she's GonNa work three matches two against Miss Texas. We know Miss Jackie and a mixed tag with Scotty Flamingo. Against lawler and Miss Texas. And she's going to work for a lot of house shows against Luna during the summer of ninety three but then she winds up leaving the company and meltzer would report that Vince. Fires her from the company after her third failed drug tests and allegedly the drug test. Failure was for smoking. Marijuana confronted about this. She said she's not going to quit. And I think she's even on record saying one time she was called into the office. And it was Vince. Jj Dylan Yourself. Sitting there and one of you told her that the drug test came back positive. And you're going to have to let her go. Talk to me about what you remember about this moment after. She'd been with company six years so very memorable angles and then it comes to an end here. Look Tar it's hard when you have a tell extraordinary talent like Sherri Martel that you want to keep and you want to continue to use. However you can't have a different set of rules for people and unfortunately for Sherry. It was our many strikes it was and she had to go away for awhile. We wanted her to go get help. Sheridan feel that she needed any help and that was the alternatives. So if can't stop doing this and you don't want to go get help. Then we can't have you doing on our time and live switch. Sometimes that one hurt it sucks dude to know that it's it's coming to an end here and you sort of alluded to earlier. When he said that. When Vince I her on his radar he had heard that you know she I forget the phrase us but the insinuation was. She was wild and liked to party. Was it just Crazy wrestling style. Drinking was it marijuana. I mean obviously we know what led to the end of her life but what was what was her sort of wrap and reputation in the business as far as being a question. Mark Convinces Mon. The perception was was. She liked to party inch liked to do drugs and she liked it party with the boys and get wild. I don't think that was inaccurate. Perception once you once you get to know or that wasn't Was Sherri Sherri liked to have good time? Yeah share you liked to party just like everybody else? So why shouldn't she? She worked hard but sherry during her time with us. I can't recall anything over the top. Did we have issues were Sapphire through in the shower. Yeah We have issues where she would go off on somebody sometime. Yes but you have issues with all your top talent in some form or fashion Sheri's weren't extraordinary. Bury the lead there. She made up Sapphire and through in the shower. And you're gonNA tell us about that. There was there was a period where the stuff that Sapphire war. She were every night so they would wrestle every night and Juanita wooden shower. She wore the exact same clothes. Sherry in one. Easy to travel together and.

"Very long. Let's get back to the dude. How much respect that macho man have for Sherry to let her take lead on the Promo? She got more than he did respect. Just think good she zero to feel the rest of the time Who have some fun working with thinking? Yeah she's got it was it like doing the The brother love show with that pear. And Sousse I mean had to be some of the best shave ever did. Yeah because all I had to do is talk to them and then we would have then we would come up with a line for tiny to do but I I loved it because is much shit as we talk about in the back you never knew what was going to come out of any one of our mouths once we got out there with a microphone in front of us so that part was fun and I used to share. Used to love to try to get me to break in. I would try to get her to break and sat savage just would but Sharon would always try to have fun like that. Good Times man my other favorite Promo. You gotta find the one where they're building The the match. The movie the no-holds-barred Christmas in December of nineteen eighty nine. I JUST PHENOMENAL. Promo where you see. I'm not GonNa play the audio because you've just got to see it but Jerry climbs the fucking cage and then trust to get off camera and tries to scoot around from the front to the back where you can't see your but she's still on camera. Just Gracia we should mention made a mainstream appearance in late. Nineteen Ninety Sharing Randy appear on the lifestyles of the rich and famous hosted by Robin Leach. I don't know that we've talked about that since we did. Our million dollar man episode any memories of the appearance here by Sherry and Randy on the show. Yeah this wasn't. This wasn't as in depth as the one that the did with DB OSCE and it was just kind of all set pieces in everything. But it wasn't really that in depth. But it was nice exposure for Randy and Liz and a way to get that Macho King Gimmick out there Robin loved US Robin Leach and was really good partner worked with us often anytime he saw something. Hey this would be. Wacky was A. Hey what if And Sherry in in fucking King Macho King was though some entertaining shit man. I just can't help but but brag about how wonderful she was with the Macho King. You know as we're so scrolling through memory lane here I remembered inner feud with With Sapphire and this has become an internet. Meme in the most recent year so And I think the title is something like a win. The Chili's bartender cuts you and your friend off. You know after you know five Margaritas. And they're both just flipping out and share. He's yelling pointing at the camera. You're a common woman which is so great considering the dusty was calling himself the common man and just phenomenal staff take a tip of the cap to Sherri Martel this weekend and go look up so these promos this weekend as you're finding some some old wrestling to enjoy the rest of the nineteen ninety as we head into wrestlemainia seven to ninety one cherry of course still managing the. Macho man are the macho king as it were wrestlemainia seven. Of course we were building towards a retirement match with the ultimate warrior when Warrior wins the match. The mashes over sheer gets in. The ring starts yelling at Randy. Then she starts to kick him and then. Elizabeth who was in the crowd jumps over the guard. Rail runs down. The AL grabbed Sherri by the hair throws are out of the ring then Randy and Liz or hugging and reunited one of the most emotional moments in wwf. History fans are showed on camera crying. Onscreen we've covered this. In the archives you can enjoy a wrestlemania seven episode but really phenomenal moment in wrestling history and Sherry says earlier in the day before doors were open randy and lists came to the show together and gave me a present. The thanks for the two years together and it was a phantom of the opera mask with a necklace built into it Ah PRETTY COOL sign of respect for some of the all time greats go into Sherri Martel here. Yeah and they. They truly love each other. I mean the three of them yet was we. We had great times on the road and family. So this was this was way of saying thank you and thank you for stepping in and and being there and never being that headache and pain in the ass could sometimes rise with those situations and Sherry played it to perfection. She was a part of the family. And I think Randy in Radian. Liz both really loved her. Later in the show Sherry within a company Ted Diaz into the ring and become his manager. So she's off the million dollar. She's off the Macho gang she's owned the million dollar man. Why was this decision? Made Well Randy was going away for a while. We didn't WANNA lose the Star Power Sensational Sherri and you had the dynamic of Virgil with Ted Diaz. But we didn't have that dynamic of Ted with a female and this was just that Opportunity Sherry was great. It would add another dimension. A whole `nother you know you look at. What Cherry did for Macho King and everyone could argue randy? Savage didn't need manager Randy savage. Didn't need anybody comes. Promos form and no didn't need anyone to be out at the ringed enhances matches. However when you did that you went holy Shit. What a package. And that's the same thing as how we looked at the million dollar man Ted to be awesome. Didn't need a manager. Ted Did need someone enhances matches but holy Shit when you add Sherri Martel that package. You got a brand new fucking package and brand new character presentation. We should.

"In I think At least double now Shiva. They get it but in the building yet and raining. Outgoing look out the fucking curtain would focus adri. Iroquois these these are much eater. She's lived down a little bit more clear on. We're setting records every night and you'll have to for me record. Playoffs there the shoots well always wanted to work with. The dream is turned in new funky night. Where the Gun Damn Bank Koala good to see? Yeah we had fun. We had spy some of the fucking worst houses in the history of the company by Guide. Way had fun. Let's talk about Zeus you know we mentioned Hogan and we would be remiss if we didn't mention that whenever there would be the the package of Hogan on one side Macho on the other. Sometimes they'd had a little garnish named beefcake. Ensues will a piece of that package for the heels is Sherri Martel so my absolute favorite promos ever Are the pre-tape promos where you guys have. The three of them standing over a goddamn cauldron at missing missy Sherri Martel talking about the vision she sees. And then we've got the big blue cage and they're pretending to climb round the cage shears running around the back of it and then climb into the top and it's just hysterical stuff where they're all shot out of a cannon but then the bell rang and there would be physicality where she would take bumps from Hulk Hogan and that's not something we have rarely seen and I could see how in certain areas that would be rather controversial but man. It didn't make anybody. Bat An eye her taking bumps from hall Cogan. Was that a controversial decision. Is it Something they called on their own. Is that something you guys had a meeting about where it was Vince on that that he asked her to take the bums looking you. Tell us about the Hogan Sherri Martel bombs now. I just worked in the match and it was able to go out and allow Just more entertainment in that match in in it's also Hogan Sherry loved. Working with each other Sherry was tougher. A lot of guys so Herbie in there was believable. It was always done now. This was the rationale you have to understand different time. Different place. Different everything If a female attacked a male competitor then the male competitor had the right or you know justification they were dead justification then put their hands back on the female so you would build that and you would have Sherri just be that that peice constantly attacking halt throughout the match until finally he gets his hands on her for one or two spots and and that was just highly entertaining in a completely different era. That it wasn't looked at like it is today and I think that you know right or wrong. You Go back thirty years. It was a little bit different and and people looked at it as just strictly entertainment. Yeah by God's She's GonNa get her she's been fucking with him for so long She's GonNa get hers and and it's Funny. Just how we think about things. In view things through a kinder lens is we grow older and for the better in my opinion that you know what yeah you don't put your hands on woman it just That was the time in that. Was that was what everybody was doing. You Watch old movies. You Watch old. Television shows holy cow. You'd never do that today. One of the things that we mentioned there as the the physicality from summer slam eighty nine in that match tag match. And that Promo with the silly cauldron absolutely love it. It's a minute and forty eight seconds and I'm going to Play the for here here. Because on absolute slam tonight span of at all Kogo Brutus the barber beefcake tummy the human wrecking machine Zeus.

"Hope from behind and He holds Holt by his hair while randy. It's in the chest with a chair and now Sherry is managing randy. This is an interesting little turn of events. We know behind the scenes Randy savage is the real life husband of Miss Elizabeth and is super overprotective of Miss Elizabeth. And they've been traveling duo and in a in a pair for a long long time to see him with a different woman certainly a different look especially when you know sort of the behind the scenes dynamic between the two. Whose idea was this. How did Sherry feel about it and most importantly how did Randy feel about being with another woman on camera it? I I think it was a little weird for everyone. I know it was intimidating for Sherry because of the relationship between Sherry. I mean between Elizabeth and Macho man so for Sherry. Yeah I was a little intimidating working with randy because randy could be pretty intense. However once they started working together they immediately clicked and Randy saw the potential of what he could do with Sherry that he could never do with Liz from the bumping and being able to use her in matches and now randy had a whole brand new tool in his arsenal and it was a human bump machine is someone that people genuinely didn't like and she had heat man she could work and she could tell stories so that was a great package. It end being able to work with with Liz in that and continue the story. It was a natural. I think that when you look at the anti antithesis man of Elizabeth immediately you're GONNA go right to Sherri Martel. I think it's the TV taping. Were brother love. He'll the guy and laid hands on Guy Wheelchair TV taping here in Huntsville. Where Liz with Tail Sherry? You're going to be working with Randy and Sherry asks Liz. How do you feel about that? And Are you comfortable with Liz? She is and that she trusts her with Randy. How was their real life relationship absolutely closes? I mean really as close as you could get. They the dynamic there I mean Sherry became she kind of became a puff. O and they all they all got along they all Sherry. Did her thing. Radian LIZ did their thing. So it wasn't like a It was but it was good in that Randy let Sherry in and gave her the freedom to do her character into her shit and for Randy said before. It's a new tool. It's something he can use at more than he can add to his arsenal. I'll throw you Sherry Sharyo. Get some heat on you. Bow Miss Sherrie takes bump. It's another spot in an in. Those are always things that he never could do with Liz so it was an exciting time for them and and Sherry teaches business. She went out. Did her shit went on. I think it's worth mentioning. Moolah had occasionally managed some people randomly here there. I think it might be my opinion. That share is the first full time female. He'll manager that we see up to this point. I mean when Liz's managing rainy and he's a he'll she's never really getting involved doing anything she's always sort of a sympathetic baby face is Sherry. The first he'll female manager. Wow I don't know I mean I think you could throw in make an argument for Missy Hyatt dark journey meaning the Dugan Sunshine to be clear I'm saying in World Wrestling Federation. Yes yes definitely when Randy Goes ONTO TO BEAT JIM. Duggan to become the king of the WWF. Of course sheree starts to become known as a Queen Sherry and the fans would sometimes nickname her scary sherry. I think official name Insatiable Sherry but Fans and and and baby face commentators on. Tv referred her scary Sherry different incarnations of the character and through this period she starts to innovate a little bit. Change up her look not just her outfits which obviously when she's the queen but go way over the top and it's probably Probably a tall ask even for female performer. To keep up with the macho man because he was such a stickler for details and the little particulars when he would have crazy outfit changes and when he was committed to the Gimmick and he would invest in his wardrobe and she to sort of play the part. So she's got to keep up with that right well. Sherry was already playing the part before that Sherry was doing the same thing in very attention to detail very much so so to pair her with Randy. We did that. There wouldn't be a conflict in that way that Sherry would be able to keep up. She wouldn't rest on her laurels and is outlandish is randy got sharee was right there with him and constantly changing her look constantly reinvesting in her outfits and doing the crazy makeup and all that. Shit. That's what made her so damn special. And if you didn't do that I don't think that it would have worked nearly as well with the Macho man because the package would wouldn't have been as good but as many times as randy savage was gonna change outfits for God so was Queen Sherry She She really got experimental with makeup. They're different periods of her managerial role when she was arrested or she would certainly try some stuff. She's starting to get really over the top of some of the makeup stuff and you guys have had tons of support from costuming and makeup shows and things like that. Well she doing most of the makeup herself or did you guys have some some help on staff to help her sort of amplify the look now. Most of the stuff you saw on TV. That was all makeup. Artist would experiment and come Sherry TV. And all I've got I've got this for you. Wait you know. Wait till you see what we're GonNa do this week. In and they would experimenting they would do different things so dinner at all on the road. She did it herself but it TV. We always had the makeup artists that would do that. And they would come up with different ideas for Sherry. Let me ask you know and I know. You probably don't know all of this but you may have an idea when she was say The women's champion for the company in wrestling wherever that match was on the card compared to when she's managing the Macho King Randy savage and main events on how show lives and things like that she gets up and pay she making more money as a manager than she was an in ring performer. I would think she was more valuable as a manager in that role and added so much to that package would hope so. Yeah I would think so too when Randy Starts feud with US erodes dusty is eventually managed by superfan Sapphire and that leads Sherri and Sapphire have a bunch of different physical confrontations with each other? Which we've recently talked about here on the show and that leads to a mixed tag `master Wrestlemainia six or randy and Sherry lose to dusty and Sapphire after Elizabeth Interferes. Shove Sherry It's a big moment. You know to see Sheree involved in something in the ring with Miss Elizabeth. Talk to me a little bit about that match and how you remember all of that sort of coming together because Sapphire was just a fan and it's not like even though she knows what to do she was wrestling. Every you know every week. It's a tall ask to get in there and wrestle and mix it up with someone who doesn't have a ton of wrestling experience right in the wrestling experienced that Juanita had was independent lot of habits and just did not know so you were relying a hundred eight. The term one hundred ten percent but if there was ever a place to use it would be here because a hundred and ten percent of this working was on. Sherry in Cherry had to be able to lead Juanita through the match and be able to get her to do everything that we need to do. So all this Sherri Martel and that Safire did that was something that Sherry felt comfortable. The Juanita could do and the success of that. So much of the success of that entire program with dusty and Sapphire in Sherry and Macho King that Sherry that was Sherry. That really pulled pulled out everything that she could out of Sapphire. It's it's fun. Because on the heels of Wrestlemainia they worker a continuous series of of mixed tag matches dusty and Sapphire on one side the king and Queen on the other all through the summer of ninety two the end of August I guess and I think the way this all comes down is at least from Sheri's point of view. She says Vince. I asked her to help get Sapphire on the road. And basically trainer wrestle using these series of matches even to the point that on the road to Wrestlemainia they have a few singles matches on house. Shows Talk to him a little bit about what that might have sounded like when Vince Tell Sherry. She's got a coach up. Juanita right got dash area yellow project for you. You Know Sapphire Dan. We we got plans here and without Sapphire. We've got no American dream if you know what I mean because what are you going to do with that so we need you take this woman? She can't she can't work need about ten minutes out of it and I know you can do it. Pal and really probably. That's Capri close to will really happen. You know it was we. We did stuff where yet yet the mixed tag and then the feature coming back would be. I would be Randy Sheri's corner and Elizabeth would be in a dusty and sapphires corner in that probably when I look back on all the different should I did in the ring and wwe that that time traveling with them and being on the road and working those matches every night with dusty and with Randy and Sherry and will need that. Some of the most fun I've ever had in the business and every single day I would get a phone call is my wakeup call. Every morning. He don't how this dammit. Congratulations set a record last night. We'll record zad lowest house a history of Odessa. And every fucking night every fucking town matter what we call the next morning wherever. I was waking me up Saturday record last night. Worse Housing El Paso History Yeah and some of them were pretty bad. They weren't all they were all bad. Frankly we outdrew in the garden where Hogan had been there before with earthquake and we outdrew that from day today but every night every night would get we'd get their industy would be standing in the curtain looking out.

"Let's talk about Sherry here. She also has an opportunity to manage. Kevin Kelly is going to go on to be nails and the WWF. I gotTa tell you. I had no idea that they had any sort of relationship until I started research on the show. She ever tell you any stories about Nails not really sure. I want to say that he will. He was one of my favorite people but he what one of her favourite people and she did whatever she was asked to do. But here's this guy with the dark brown skin bleach blond hair and look like a gazillion dollars. But boy unfortunate bell rang and there wasn't a whole lot there to to write home about so I don't think Sherry saw whole lot in a future with Kevin Walk holds because it just wasn't even all of the bumping in the world and all the best promos in the world weren't going to help her in that situation with that package. Let's keep it moving here. Let's talk about Super Clash September twenty eighth nineteen eighty five. She Defeats Candy. Divide to win the Awa Women's title. Then they flip flop. The title a handful of times October fourteenth then October seventeenth and then on January sixteenth nineteen eighty-six and then we finally see Sherry win it for the third and final time. June twenty eight nineteen eighty-six at the battle of the Bay while she's the champ. She's got several matches with a newcomer to the Biz. Medusa set Micheli is going to go on to become a lender ablaze and the WWF. It's pretty cool to go back and see some early Awa matches was Sherri Martel and Medusa. I don't think a lot of people may have even known those matches existent no. It was one of the Times that Sherry was really now this somebody that. Sherry's looking at that. She could work with actually. Have a program in take around Sherry thought very highly of Medusa and her work and looked at Medusa is someone that could take her career even a higher height in the ring in a working ability. And of course we know what's coming soon Even though Sherri is the Awa women's champion she's working without a contract. Verne's trying to sign a long term contract but she won't sign it because they're offering her father hundred dollars a week. Vince McMahon. Here he comes. He's my into a living taking wrestlers from Verne. Ganja shining them up making them superstars he does the same thing with Share here at one day. Sheer is doing a celebrity golf deal. And Jesse Ventura's there Jesse asser. Why don't you go work for Vince? And she says no one's called me and she didn't think she was experienced enough to make the jump fast forward a few months. She gets a call from BLACKJACK. Lanza telling. Her events wants to talk to her. The next morning. The call was made Vince schedules. The meeting Jerry said. She waited two weeks before she gave. Vince answer then. She accepts and gives Varner two week. Notice you're pretty new to the company when Sherry comes in. What are your memories of how Martell wound up joining the company and is it true? That Jesse Ventura help get the ball rolling. At least from your recollection. Margaret my recollection. Yeah I think it was. It was Jesse or PAT through Jesse. Somehow who had seen cherry work and Vince and seeing her work and liked her work I remember very very early on and when I say very early on. I'm talking like him one of our first few meetings. Vince asked me if I knew who Sherry was. And what kind of experiences I'd had with Sherry. He had heard that she was trouble. And he heard that You know she was little rowdy. And what have you and my experiences with Sherry. Were always good. She just was really nice. Shoes Lotta Fun. But she could go and I was strictly looking at it from that aspect and I don't know that specially at that point in my career with wwe that my opinion is going to matter that much anyway. But I knew early on that they had been talking. Vince was interested in bringing her in so Do you think that it would work if she were the champion? And we actually were able to get more women in if we made Sherry champion. Because I don't think Moolah and her age is going to be able to travel the way that we would like to travel and the way that we would like to get the women's championship out there. So you know. Times are changing and Sherry. Had part of the bid part of Sherry coming in at the time was Sherry had left the the clutches of Moolah if he will because Sheri had gone out on her own and when Moolah book you Moolah got her percentage no that was that was Mulas deal. She trained you silent. You know ahead of time. When you go to work moves GONNA get a percentage of your pay will sherry broke away from Moolah and was doing her own bookings and doing stuff with Verne with everybody else and Sherry was afraid to come back into the fold with Moolah because she had broken away from Moolah INVINCI- shared her that you know look Lille's to hold a grudge and got them together and they were fine. And what have you but Yeah I I'm a I heard about it and I thought that she would be a great addition to the roster of course when she comes in the half to vacate the Awa Women's title never officially loses it. Medusa winds up winning it from Candi Devine Poor Candy July Twenty Fourth Nineteen Ninety seven right after Sherry joins the company. She defeats the Fabulous Moolah to win. The women's title. Cherry has said that they didn't always see eye to eye on things but they had mutual respect for each other in hindsight ahead to be an interesting thing. You know she's Sort of running women's wrestling forever so feels okay. Did you drop another tooth? The hell was that. I don't know something fell. Was that also tooth? You should check the floor. Hang on Jack Jack Tooth. Check to check got it got it okay. There we go. Now we're back fabulous moolah interesting personality. She's ran women's wrestling for a long time. Now she's After being the top dog really with no competition anywhere inside she's asked to put over Sherri Martel here. How'd that go over? Well it went over. Well you know. I think that the the best part of the match was the strapping young baby phase. Play by play Guy What I was listening I mean he. I was very good looking very dynamic. Probably well podcast. Jonah we're talking about Eric. Bischoff who Eric Bischoff. He's very good-looking. Oil and podcast talking now. No no no he was with Awa. Thakur's was Tony. Shivani who me the fat guy. That doesn't know what to Taylor is. Why are you talking about Michael Hayes like that Michael Taylor's this shit now not all of it but at least his pants? Let's keep it moving here after winning the title. Hey on so Aside from the great play by play on that Moolah move was cool. Moolah had zero problem dropping the title Sherry however when Sherry showed up and Moulis opinion she was. She wasn't in top notch shape and she didn't look like some lawn was getting the torch passed. Heard be able to go on to the next level well. And after that she's working with rock and Robin and it's just weird. How all of this sort of ties together. She's the daughter of Grizzly Smith. The Guy who helps here getting the business that we talked about earlier even though there's a women's title in Nineteen Ninety seven there's not a lot of women in the division Sherry ever put in a good word for any other female wrestlers like Medusa. She did good work for Medusa at the time and I think that Medusa was pretty well set in the Awa and I don't think that she was looking to make a move and I want to say that during this time was like the first. The first time Medusa hit started going to Japan as well so that was an attractive thing for her but you know Sherri Sherri one to work Sherry wanted to work in the rain Sherry wanted to manage Sherry just wanted to work and be involved and make as much money as she could so she was always on the lookout for any new opponents and people that could come in to spice it up for but it was a different time in the business as well for our company to have more than two full time. Women Rustler's it just wasn't feasible. It wasn't something that you looked at and said okay. Hey we've got a roster here than there was no roster she had your female champion and then you had opponents for from time to time and maybe doing angle. Maybe you do something. But it was the attraction of C. You know come see the women. Oh my God wait women wrestle. They can vote. What the Hell's going on here by God? Burn here Loyd blaming actually rational Sherry makes debut at the first survivor series nineteen eighty-seven she's teaming with the women's tag champions. The Glamour Girls Judy Martin Lawn and dawn. Marie and Donna Kherson Allo. They took on the Fabulous. Moolah the jumping bomb angels and Internet Favorite Velvet McIntyre and rock and Robin in the Math Sherry eliminates rock and Rahman before Kraken Robin Not Rahman. It'd be funny though before being eliminated by Velvet McIntyre interesting. Decision haven't McIntyre Eliminate Sherry. I mean she's the She's the women's champion. She's getting eliminated. And so I guess that sets up a bunch of House show matches and it does. She's working with rock and Robin and Velvet McIntyre on the loops afterwards and somewhere around this time she gets another piece of business and this is probably the first time I saw her she starts accompanying the Honky. Tonk man drinks as peggy sue rocking the poodle skirt and a wig and glasses. Whose idea is a half Sherry. Be Peggy Sue who probably will be debated forever. I think it was a cross between Jimmy. Hart and Pat Patterson to just add a little bit too Sherry. Was there on the cards anyway. And it was something else for Sherry to do and the best part about it is is not everybody in in fact very few knew that it was Sherri Martel. Do the Peggy Sue Gimmick. So she would do double duty a lot of times that the Iranian she would go out and work SHERRI MARTEL. Then she'd come back and be peggy sue or vice versa. There any long term plans for peggy sue or was it just an off. The cuff idea. Didn't last very long. I know it was. It was just something do ans- honky tonk man. And I forget who honky was a program with time but it was a way to just one more tool for honky. To use in his matches was a fun. Little look for sure October. Seven nine hundred ninety eight Paris France. Rockin Robin would defeat Sherry to win the women's title and she would hold it until it was eventually phased out in February of nineteen ninety. Of course we know by that time. Shares off to the races in a managerial capacity. But why was the decision made to Sort of do away with women's wrestling in that era. The large talent pool of women wrestlers to draw from. So it's you can continue to. You can continue the division but it's just GonNa be the same people over and over again so there wasn't anything really choose from to freshen up that division so you really didn't have a division. You had a belt. Yes some of the war. That belt beyond that there wasn't a whole lot to it We don't see a whole ton of of Sherry on TV for awhile elements. She's working rematches on how shows And then finally you know when we see Wrestlemania five come to a conclusion Sherry is GonNa Confront Elizabeth and during an interview leading to a confrontation between the two. Savage would repeatedly threatened to hit Elizabeth. Of course Hogan comes to her aid. Sherry then attack..

"Okay here's a new female wrestler that you WanNa take note of the fact that she was young that was different the fact that she was much prettier than some of the little more mature female wrestlers that were on the circuit that helped as well so sherry immediately kinda caught the eye and caught the attention of people then that Dan Bell rang and Sheikh actually knew what the hell she was doing. She had a bit of an awkwardness tour. But it was the the early mid eighties was the first time that I cross pass with Sherry. Couldn't have been nicer to. While she's working in the south she also manages the Tame of Pat Rose and doctor. Tom Prichard of course back. Danny wasn't the Doctor. But that one of your brothers first managers. Sherri Martel yet in that relationship. You know carried on for many many years where they were friends because that was the first opportunity for Sherry to be in a different role other than wrestling and she was used as a not. A stereotypical female manager because she could bump and she could work and she better most of the guys and they're always wasn't a plethora of women wrestlers during those days for her work with and especially get any variety. So you would. Have you had the women in the midgets? That's how the the card Easter re The King Jerry Lawler vs Plow. Boy Frazier the midnight. Express versus the rock and roll. Plus PUS MIDGETS IN GIRLS. That was the billing so they were almost like a side. So side sorry Mahfud petite the fallen out again all that. Shit people for years. It's been the worst teeth life of my life. Teeth live my life the worst year. I mean Goddamn it this is fucking you know what I meant. Do and it's funny yesterday. I sneezed and they came out in the middle of a meeting with fence. Right which has got to be hysterical. I talk to you about this No that was last week in the middle of a meeting with this. Were last week in the middle of a meeting with vans of sitting there and I like you feel something in your mouth and you try to talk in. It's not right you know. You're the fucking words need your teeth or loosen. I started cussing up a storm. He's like what the Hell's wrong with you I'm talking to. Mit came out of my mouth. So then I was pissed off to red eye back Got It put it in on Saturday morning and then Yesterday morning which would have been whatever the fuck day. That was our sneezing in the morning. When I got up and I felt something. Hit My hand. Then you hear the mother fucker much came out again. Couldn't find the cadet on my hands and knees fucking crawling all over the kitchen floor and I know you know not the funny part about me with a missing tooth. Probably the funniest part was beginning down and trying to get up from the kitchen floor. Oz fucking pissed. Are You K- PISS? Carolinas records still feels loose is going to be loose because this is to teach that they worked on his. And it's got the fucking post in it. But they stripped post off God.

What the fuck this is. Bruce prichard shell out of a cannon within. This is my thought this but this is daily this walking daily like you and I. We started this guy what you don't WanNa talk to me now. One doctor I talked to you but usually I like talk to you at the end of the thing. Like if you ever actually have a couple of fucking minutes now that noises coming out of a God damn phone the way we should mention before we get too far down the road. Please Watch smackdown tonight on Fox Sherry is in a battle. Royal Four hundred fifty pound plow boy. Stan frazier known as Uncle Elmer in the WF mid eighties falls on her leg and breaks it. A very bad injury keeps her away from wrestling for like two years. You ever hear about this. Horrific incident where The plow boy broke her leg and put her on the shelf for two years from. Yeah from her and actually from Tom and it was. She was pissed. She was just fucking pest Because in those days it wasn't a pension no promoter certainly not jerry. Jarrett is GonNa take care of talent while they're injured on the side. Make sure that they still are able to feed themselves and take care of themselves so it was a rough time for Sherry with this injury because it wasn't anything else she could do off out recovering she moves to New York. Even accompanies playboy. Buddy rose a few times. When he's challenging Bob backend for the world title and she wasn't referred to by name or anything like that was very brief but she was one of Buddies Rosebud which is what he called the women that walked to the ring with him at the time and then an eighty five the visco helped her get into the AWA and Larry goes was Sherry to meet with. Burn and Jerry says without Larry doing that she probably wouldn't have got shot in the AWA. Of course the AWA ran by. Ganja you ever hear any stories From from Sherry but working in the AWA with burn jaded Vern Sherry hated burn. I it's funny. The remember. Spend the assessment a lot of time with share traveled with Sherry and it was news unique said least but I. I don't know that there were many promoters. With the exception events that Sherry really liked him and I don't know if it was because first of all the the old timers like vern hat damn women in a wrestling ring. What the fuck is that That was four. It was four and two vern but he looked down his nose at. It didn't feel that that they were anything. More than a side. Attraction in Sherry was so much more than a great worker. She enhanced whoever you put her wish she could talk and she could bring up whoever she was around. And the valets. If you will that accompany guys to the ring. During this timeframe most of them didn't work most similar. The girlfriends of of whoever missy high was johnny tatum's girlfriend later on Gilbert Dark jury came in as Dick. Slater's girlfriend then they you'll more from there but Sherry was unique Sherry was worker. That became a manager in Valais. That could do it all the talk that could work and go out there and knew how to get heat and loved getting heat so for Verdon. That was foreign to him. I'm not sure that verve fully knew how to utilize Sheri's talents because by this time you know Verne is looking at the business as that. Goddamn McMahon is is coming in and trying to take my territory in and This is wherever the hell. He thought he lived that only he was allowed to run in. Minneapolis and Chicago and Denver and the markets that he deemed he was allowed to run in and no one else does not America so that was vern mindset at the time and this was during a time when he was trying to just hold on what he had in his idea of non on what he had was law. Go take events. Where did you meet her? The first time I met Verne was in nineteen eighty one when Verne came not spoken affirm maybe one or two times on the phone It the office with ball. Bosch Saverne came down for Paul Boschetti. Fiftieth Anniversary Tournament and as C. Infamous Evan Johnson story with Dick Slater were Emma Johnson shooter from Minnesota and got the ring with Dick Slater and tried to shoot on Dickey and did shoot on Dickey and Dick wish reason. Dick Burke booked himself with Evan was to protect Evan. Give Evan A match. 'cause Evan was green grass but Evan just thought Dick was trying to bury him and wouldn't wouldn't cooperate and then later on ended up with the slater slap the Shit Outta Bevan backstage in the locker room but that was I met. Verne was during that event. Vern came down. It was a three day tournament and burn came in and Nicest be man as legendary Vern Ganja but I think that Verne Verne was one of those guys you believed his own shit. Im- vern could be one hundred years old and the way that he was selling. Well let's go. Let's go fight was go outside? Double tough guy amateur wrestler Olympian and a bully. I think a lot of people saw vernice bully. Verne also was one of the greatest trainers of all time. I mean he the level of talent that came out of that camp. Good God if you could survive that much less come out of it and be able to walk. You had to be in pretty damn good shape and you had to be somebody that had the passion and the drive to do it. So Verne was good in that way. But by nineteen eighty five. I think it was slipping away from him. And Burn was in state of constant paranoia and the stamp kid coming in his backyard and running his his towns mention while she's a part of the AWA. She's managing buddy rose and Doug somers and they win the world tag team titles. They had a very famous feud against the midnight rockers. Mardi Jannati and a man that Sherry would manage seven years later when he first gets his big break. A singles wrestler The incomparable Shawn Michaels. Man The buddy rose and Doug somers bloody match with the midnight. Rockers became a tape trading classic. You ever see that match. Yes I have. And this was a period floor buddy. Buddy was kind of in the twilight of his career. If you will the swim buddy started getting really heavy. And but he just wouldn't one the buddy rose of all. Do you know the buddy rose in the Pacific north northwest now Portland Seattle that area working for Don owns and buddy could fly. He was a big guy. He was not great Shea but the son of a bitch could cut a promo. You would not believe real name. Paul Per Sherman had broken under Verne and he had gone on. And you go back in the real early eighties. And he was flying around. Lear jets and limousines is a shoot living the gimmick a playboy buddy rose and nobody could nobody could touch him in now thou was kind of his career. He had He'd probably smelled most of his career. Go Away and buddy needed help. Doug somers big I but a journeyman. Doug was never going to be a main event or anywhere and Doug couldn't cut a promo to save his life my opinion but the teen like Buddy help. Doug and Doug held buddy but sherry made them complete because Sherry could the promos Sherry when the one much going on in the Ring Sherry was making sure the shit going on outside of the ring. She could bomb. She could fly and she could make baby face. Look.
"martel" Discussed on Something to Wrestle with Bruce Prichard
"On t shirts. You'll see what time it came down to a nail biter between Vince Russo Sherri Martel. And of course tons of controversy stirred up anytime you talk about through so his fan base mobilized and things were said and became a whole thing online and I said God damn. Don't blame me. I voted for Sherry. We've made it a shirt and now all these years later we're finally getting to talk about the late. Great Sherri Martel. I'm excited in this one. We should mention the reason we were planning on covering this one. Last week I was last Saturday. Was her birthday. She was born February. Eighth Nineteen fifty eight New Orleans and her and her mom started going to Gulf coast championship wrestling around nineteen seventy two and she just very quickly fell in love with the sport and decided she wanted to be a wrestler when she was sixteen she met. Grizzly. Smith the father of Jake Roberts Sam Houston and Rockin Robin and sure. He asked him to get her in the business and he told her to come back when she was twenty one and she ended up going home to join the circus. She's living in Memphis. Nineteen seventy eight or hand a local bar where the wrestler name. Sweet Daddy Lions and. He's turned a wrestling school. Ran By butch Monroe and she said that she went to see Bush and his office with five hundred dollars and told him she wanted to be a wrestler and she says he got up from his desk walked over to her and slapped her across the face she said is that all you've got and signed her up and she's in school for about a year and a half So an interesting way to get in the business. She talked to you about going to wrestling school. In this crazy I experience you know. Share it talk to you about her early days because Sherry was one of those talent that it truly had a passion. There it wasn't about. I WanNa be a star or I want to travel the world and make millions and millions of dollars it was about. She loved the essence of the business and she wanted to be a part of it and I think she was willing you know even before she realized what it was going to take she was willing to pay the price and she was willing to do whatever it took to get into the business so she was tough anyway and somebody slapping her shares would gonNA DETER. But she just wanted she just wanted to be in and around rustling in to get in the ring and become a wrestler that was her drain. That that's what it boils down to. It wasn't about really anything else so she she wanted to fight. She was tough and she wanted to prove anybody the cross her path. By God's she wasn't going to be denied talk to me a little bit about wrestling schools. These days wrestling schools feel and look a lot different. You know from from a you guys perspective there's Inex- T and you guys take. You know someone with absolutely no wrestling experience and Polish them up and teach them the WWF am and bona fide superstars. But that wasn't always the way to go in. There wasn't a wwe school back. In this era you had to go through more traditional sort of old school wrestling school in the late seventies early eighties. What did that look like? Oh God there were. There were no traditional wrestling schools so to speak there would be guys from time to time. That would have a gym in a barn or a gym in a in a ring in a garage. Jim In a barn a ring and a garage barn somewhere or even in their backyard that they would charge people to come in and the extent of the school. A lot of times was. Let me blow these people up and let me put them through these ungodly cardio drills and training drills so that they never ever. WanNa come back again You know refund Not Available No refund deposit not refunded so in the day. The wrestling school was nothing. Like what we have today. And you know Jay. Pwa Jacobs Pritchard Wrestling Academy in Knoxville. Tennessee is an actual wrestling school. Where they teach you everything and they teach you the fundamentals of the wrestling business and they teach you how to conduct business. Not just get in the ring and take bumps and a cup. Here's a couple of moves kid. Get on your way so there were a lot of commerce or a lot of guys you know there were for example. When we were kids went Nick Kovacs Record Company and in the garage of the wrecker service. There was a ring set up in the corner. One two sides wall one side was Placed actually get into the ring and the fourth side was actually were. They change the oil for the tow trucks. So if you took a bump on that side it was pretty damn big bomb We were fortunate enough to have knit. Take Liking to us and allow us to go in there and trained and that's where. Tom got the majority of his training. So I think Sherry was just looking for anything and for women in particular during those years. No no guy wanted to train a woman be wrestler few onto that. I you know aggo fine. Go some broad teach you but they would take their money for sure. And that's certainly not going to happen. You know with Jay. Pwa THEY'RE NOT GONNA take profited from an slap across the face. Tell everybody how they could go train with doctor. Tom and Glenn Jacobs well check them out online. Jp W A WRESTLING DOT com. And it's going to be trained by the same guy that trained the rock. You're going to be trained by the same guy that trained Kurt Angle Mark Henry. Vince McMahon the list on and on and on of the amount of talent that Tom Prichard my brother. Yes I am. Partial his trained and brought up through the ranks and he for many years. Would I yeah? But you know they had it. I'm like yeah. They had it but they didn't know what to do with it until they got to him. And that's what you want a new training facility and in my opinion Jay. Pwa Knoxville Tennessee is the premier wrestling academy. And then there's also you know reality arrested in Texas City Texas Booker T. Runs those two. I'm not disparaging anyone else those two. I've actually been to and spend a lot of time around in no that they teach the fundamentals and they teach you what to do. Not just what to do but why you do it and they actually teach you how to feel which is very important in this business. It's worth mentioning that You know there's tons of great schools out there but these are to that that you can personally endorse That you feel good about recommending so if you're listening to this show and you'd like to pursue your dream the same way Sherri Martel dead. Be SURE TO CHECK OUT J. P. W. A. I mean Dr. Tom and Glenn Jacobs King come on We should mention when Cherries Twenty one. She meets up again with Drizzly Smith and winds up calling Moolah as you said was Trained in the broads and then sharing winds up moving to Columbia South Carolina to go to wrestling school. She's there for about six months and she's trained by Moolah and Donna Christon Elo. She's training every morning. And then they take a break and then they'd work every evening and she says during training Moolah had her work mostly as a baby face oh Sherry learned how to take moves but also give some as well and our training consisted of mostly taking bumps which is obviously very critical. Part when you're young person learning The BIZ and. She says the best advice mule ever gave her was to save money and stay away from the boys. Don't go out with the boys. Don't date the boys and keep your private life away from the wrestling business a lot to unpack here. But how important do you think that advice is too young person getting in the business today to keep your private life away from the wrestling business extremely important? Here's here's the catch. Twenty two to that when you are in the business The people that you travel with become your family. And that's when you're in a different city every night. You're you mean new people and but you move it on the constants in your line for those you travel with and work with so it's Kinda difficult to not dabble in that. Like if you will because that's what you're around all the time however if you can separate You need to separate and I do think that that's the best advice I could ever give. Anyone is yes. I agree with that one hundred percent and save your money in his not GonNa last forever and that was the old timers man. The old timers that made it and saved it. That was their first bit of advice. I don't care if you make you only make fifteen dollars a night lease put five of away well and some of that. You probably speak from personal experience. Where your first round? W W you probably assumed this shit will never end you know plans change POW and obviously your store has a different happy ending. But that's not always the case for a lot of folks right now and you think that you're making so much money that it's never going to end and I'll get around to putting some way but I'm making so much it really matter it becomes it becomes like monopoly money and you just think okay well. That's the trains. Never GonNA stop. Never GonNa keep right on going and then when it does. It's a very rude awakening to go from tens of thousands of dollars a week to nothing so that that's why you want to just take the majority of that tens of thousands of dollars a week and put it away speak to Moolah as a trainer you know we've talked about Moolah here on the show She obviously you know as a as a lightning rod for controversy depending on. He asked some absolutely loved her somehow. Two different experience But as a trainer someone who could observe the talent and work with the ladies that she actually trained with or she trained What was her reputation? You know from from your perspective as a trainer tough tough and even talking to Sherry. Remember Sheri's memories of Moolah were tough and the model used to beat the shit out of her. It was to toughen her up and it was to prepare her for life on the road and for sometimes going out not knowing what to expect but Moolah would try to prepare them for any and every obstacle that could come come. Their Way Sherry was was tough. Moolah was tougher and Moolah was very hard on those that were training with her that she fell had potential to actually make it and make it to the same type of spot that Moolah hit enjoyed all those years so the better you were the more the harder Moolah was on you. An accident eighty one that with since Sherry on a tour of Japan and she also takes the name Sherri Martel and when she comes back from Japan she goes to work in Memphis and that's where she begins wrestling with Jim Cornell as her manager and I think Sherry may have actually been one of the first wrestlers maybe first wrestler that that Cornell ever actually managed so nice. Little footnote in history When did you first see Sherri Martel? When did you first meet Sherri Martel? I didn't meet Sherry until the the mid eighties coming through. And I think she'd come through during The watts time and mid south for a run and I met her a few times. There and Sherry was one of those that got on the radar..

'Joker' Is Getting Serious Award Show Buzz
"This being the Oscar show we are of course talking about movies that may or may not contend for Oscar's just before we get began recording we were we're discussing the Venice Film Festival's winner of the Golden Lion and that movie of course Amanda is called Joker now jokers for those of you who've been sleeping under under a rock todd Phillips's. I guess you just described it aptly as a remake of taxi driver but with the joker we think that's what that movie is going to be. Neither you nor I have seen correct and until we see it. I think is going to be difficult for us to weigh in specifically on whether it's a problematic movie whether it's a wonderful movie. I don't know I also also just candidly I'm looking forward to it. Though I think we've started on the show a handful of times were not looking forward to the discourse around the movie that we don't have to look for it. It's already here. It's here. It's here I. I'm not really a part of it and I said that I would not be a part of it. I continue to not be in part because as you said we haven't seen it yes. We're only citing it here. Because the idea of joke entering the Oscar race I think is significant. I noted this over the weekend but just four of the previous forty Golden Lion winners have gone on to become best picture nominees two of those four of them in the past two years. Those movies are the shape of Water Roma both of which were if not major favorites significant contenders so it's possible that as as things evolve maybe Venice's evolving into perhaps a bellwether for the academy I it's very hard to say because in addition to joker being acknowledged they also acknowledged alledged Roman Polanski's new film officer and a spy which won the silver lion and it's notable that the academy expelled Roman Polanski last year from the academy so I do think that a festival like Venice which you and I discussed a couple of weeks ago as we previewed the season has the chance to significant significantly influence where we're going the season and I feel a complicated question in the sense that you and I are having this conversation now and a bunch of people lost their minds on twitter this weekend about joker winning the Golden Lion. I you know I think that happened on Saturday afternoon. A PS and you watched all the tweets role in it. Everyone being like Oh. Oh Shit Oscar racist change like Fam- It is early September calm down you know that is the nature of the Oscars at this. Wayne is like a bunch of people just like hidden at retrieve Biden and being like game changer so I guess it's a game changer I also so there was instant hand ringing ringing of being like a Venezia's responding to the discourse and they are saying no you will not shame us we will not that'd be politically correct which is like. They're not at all. It's Venice. It's just like a bunch of people taking boats around and being like we're having a nice international time like I promise Lucrecia Martel who is the president of the jury this year like did not read your tweets and doesn't care so to the extent that all of this okay so you're just you really feeling it right now and it's great. I just like Lucrecia. Martel was just chilling in a boat somewhere. That's what you're saying. She was in a Gondola. I hope she had what a great time watching hangover three director. She deserves it. I hope she got some time like on a plaza somewhere with an imperative because that's what you gotTa do when you go adventist okay it's not read stupid people's tweets about like what joker reflects about the twenty first century masculinity or whatever she doesn't care they. I don't care so in that sense no but in the sense that we are in a prison of our own making and all of the Oscar discourses now but because of people reacting and just kind of shutting each other across the void I just did a monologue about it and the Oscar Shell. You're participating of course participating and we say we're not going to and then we do. I think you definitely put your finger on something very smart. which is that the reactionary nature of certain movies or at least the way they're perceived to be reactionary canary invariably influences the races you know the green book conversation happened in part because there is at least the expectation that older members of the academy did not not want to be told what they could or could not like now joker is not exactly the same as green book even though we haven't seen joker? I feel pretty safe assumption that they don't have the same posture. Let's say but I do think that there is a chance that a movie like this could sneak. Its way in because of what you're saying because there is the sort of like. Don't tell tell me what kind of a movie I'm allowed to like not like. I'm not totally sure. Todd Phillips is not necessarily historically known as a awards filmmaker and Joaquin Phoenix INEX- is a bit of a circuitous personality in the world. You know he's not the kind of person who I think is going to go to one hundred after parties and kiss babies to get his nomination despite the fact that he's understood to be the master of his craft etc etc.. We'll have to just wait and see you know we're. We're not far away from seeing this movie. The only thing I would say flip side of that is that it would be so Oscars for them to finally recognized the Superhero Genre with this movie that is a remake of an odd to all the seventy s movies that these these academy jokers grew up on. I don't think that that would be a fair recognition of what soup the superhero genre is in the industry and I don't think that would be a fair recognition this movie which I haven't even seen but you can see you can see them get. The one thing I'll say is though there's one thing working for them working the thing working against it. The one thing we're going forward is the sort of like elevated seventies thing that you're mentioning which gives it a perhaps a measure of credibility in some people's minds. The flipside is this character has already been celebrated by the Academy Heath Ledger already one thing this character so we know that the academy is maybe more open to the idea of a chaos agent in its mix. You know what I'm saying yes but the academy recognizes like the King of England and a character like every three years so that doesn't doesn't really matter okay the one thing that we can say about joker is that it's clear that he is this week's winner of is he running because joker is running. It is clear the joker is here to stay for the Oscars conversation so we'll get into him more. I suspect that we'll do a little bit of a deep dive on the show in October. I WanNa ask you about the article the because it's very clearly titled Joker and calling I mean I understand that the joker is the character but I think they're also trying to do something by not having him be the joker. It's it's a word play has also he's a joker because we're all joker rate so the collective joke asking you. I want to set some intention for Oscar season. Are we going to call him. The joker are we just going to call him joker. Can we just see the movie and find out what if he's not the canonical joker. Tell okay. It's Ah you're editor. Brain is working on this Monday morning. We'll just have to wait and see because it's completely plausible that this is not operating in the traditional Batman Mythology. Oh Gee and so thus it's just a reference to how all leaders and men with power jokers of the world listen. I'm just trying to respect the film and the filmmakers occurs and engage with the text people. Don't think that I'm going to do that was movie but I am well. We appreciate your your candor.

Eric Reid continues to take knee during anthem in first game with Carolina Panthers
"Carolina Panthers safety Eric Reed knelt during the national anthem in protest of racial injustice before today's game against the New York Giants, none of Reed's new Carolina. A teammates joint him or stood near him at midfield. He's the first Panthers player ever to kneel during the national anthem with a large American flag in the middle of the field. Read went to his right knee. As the star spangled banner was sung by Marc Martel. The twenty six year old read made his return to the NFL after signing with the Panthers on September twenty seventh four months after filing a grievance against the NFL alleging teams colluded against signing him during free agency after he knelt during the national anthem alongside
