Journalist Daniel Libit Unpacks Amicus Brief Supporting NCAA in NCAA v. Alston Case
"Perhaps the most important moment of this month from a sports standpoint could be in washington. Dc at the supreme court. That's when the much-heralded landmark potentially landmark case will be heard oral arguments will be hurt and there's a lot of controversy going on right now and our next guest is going with with with michael mcmahon. Has shed some some light on that. A friend of the court brief an amicus brief was filed recently in this case the nc. Double a. vs austin and it was discovered by our next guest and his colleague that what these athletes have done may end up hurting more than helping daniel limit joining us. And it's really great to have you on david. Thank you so much. We we've talked in the past with michael mccann. Both of you have really uncovered quite an extraordinary story. Here good afternoon and is a gentle way possible explained of those of us who don't understand this stuff as well as you what this is all about well first of all. Thanks so much for having me on the program. It's a it's an honor. Um yeah as you as you sort of previewed There was a group of former college. Athletes who on february eight filed in the meekest brief which is also called a friend of the court brief in the end of the blame. The allston case This was the eighth emeka. Brief that was filed in this case. But it was probably the most interesting and possibly the most impactful because this was the only breach that was being written and signed off on by actual former college athletes others. Who had weighed in on this. Were economists and law professors and subject matter experts but you know offensively. The people who would have been impacted by changes to the restrictions in compensation or scholarship limits while they were still in school and they were voicing their support for the incident which was kind of interesting because the caption of the case is the blake. The allston allston is shown. Allston the former west virginia running back. Who's the The name on a on a class of of former college athletes. And so you know curious. Who are the athletes who are actually standing up for being simple a and so a couple of weeks ago i started calling around and and reaching out to the eighteen athletes who had signed off on this brief two thirds of them are former olympic athletes But six of them are former major sports athletes. Five of them played basketball in college. And one of them is darren. Mcfadden the star football player for arkansas. Who had a kenya year. Nfl career retired in two thousand seventeen. And those are the ones who i thought. Were most interesting. Because those are the ones from the revenue that the so-called revenue generating sports who you'd think would have the most to gain By changes to the restrictions of Of compensation and In calling around Particularly with mcfadden who is kind of the marquee name used by far and away the most high profile of the former college athletes to sign onto this brief Occurred to me in our conversations with a few of them mcfadden included that their words didn't exactly square with what the brief said that when i was asking them. Sort of what motivated their position on the issue of amateurism What led them to to join us brief. They were kind of making better arguments for the plaintiffs for the players for the allston side than they work for. The incident lay And then through additional reporting and and and you know continuing to interview them it really raise questions whether or not they knew exactly what they were signing onto in the first place and whether or not their perspectives on college sports and amateurism aligned with the incident. Belay at all The las firm. That's filed this brief Is a major international law firm. It's called orc. They've done worked previously for the aa. So this was a serious brief filed by serious group of lawyers but it seem like some of their key voices And and their biggest most high profile name didn't know what they were actually signing up for or really didn't understand the specifics or for that matter. The the overriding point of the Of the litigation in daniel not to turn this into a legal drama but maybe in a small town lawyer runs down to the courthouse on friday and file something quickly just to try to stave something off or two for quick injunction. But we're talking about the supreme court here and of the most important cases That we've ever seen in relation to the ncw has something like this happen. You know well. That's a good question and reach out to law firm which pushback strongly in vehemently against any kind of suggestion that the brief was anything other than fully representative of of all of the athletes who signed onto it But yeah your your. Your point is exactly right. This is a very serious case You know this is probably the biggest college sports case to go before. The supreme court gain a quarter century And these are serious lawyers who filed the brief. And you'd think that they would be able to you know. Gather together a group of former athletes. Who really had a full understanding and appreciation of their side I think one thing that might suggest is how difficult it is. How difficult it might be or the blades. Position to find support among former major Or or major sport or or you know so-called revenue sports athletes And and that seems to be where the sticking point is. I spoke with other people who filed the sign onto the who were olympic sport athletes Who were much more articulate and and sort of informed on the on the points of of what the brief would say and what the blades position is but it does somewhat undermine the the argument that that you know. There's a wide swath of diverse in a diverse group of athletes. Who support the simple as that. It's not just the olympic sport athletes who Don't want necessarily the the floodgates of new compensation to come in but that they're actually people who who played football and basketball who also Subscribe subscribe to that tibet. Thinking as
Kurt Angle Revisits 'WrestleMania Goes Hollywood' and the Thrill of Entertaining
"I'm curious in a segment like this because you've had some of the best matches wrestling history. But you've also had some really comedic home runs. You have a preference. I mean. obviously there's got to be shouldn't say obviously i don't know but there's gotta be a bunch of adrenaline in the middle of a match and you can feel that crowd but when you're doing an entertaining skit like this and you know it's hitting. How does that compare worry. You like man. I got him there in the palm of my hand. I it's it's like hitting a grand slam. It's like winning the super bowl. It's like winning. Olympic gold medal When you when you nail it and you know you did You can't be happier. It's i. I enjoy doing that more in the wrestling. And you know how much. I love getting shirt wrestling so Yeah being entertaining is was the most important thing to me. And i got away from it after a while and i got more into the more intense wrestling machine kurt angle and that was. Because vince mcmahon want me to start portray myself as more serious right But i love. I love making an ass out of myself in. Throw myself out there that that that was really.

"mcmahon" Discussed on Something to Wrestle with Bruce Prichard
"Of course later that night rock wins the wbf title. I like shane in that role though. Going to camp three. And he flips. Off steve austin pretty iconic moment and shane pulled it off. There were Some people thought that they were pushed in their little soon. Here's here's the stigma. The happens is you have someone new. Are they ready you. If you have ten people in the room probably eight of them. We're gonna tell you know they're not ready will win the hell. Are they going to be ready in. You're never gonna know if they're ready or not much. Just put them out there and find out sometimes they make should bed sometimes they may just astound you. And either as a laundry list of people from brock les- nerd kurt angle The rock just you can go right down the list of people that weren't ready batista. The they weren't ready. Well you gotta get ready and shane was put in that position. Shane had the double edged sword of being young and inexperienced in. Also being mcmahon over shane. War better deliver. And i think he did. I think you do a hell of a job. Let's talk about february of ninety nine. mcmahon's gonna move away from the commentary role on heat. He's now key part of the corporation angle. It's around this time that he fairly controversially wins the european championship from xbox and happened on february. Fifteenth raw in birmingham alabama The title changed hands and a tag match with kane versus triple h and xbox to meet in a rematch at wrestlemainia. Fifteen and mcmahon gets help from his childhood friends. The mean streak posse lot to unpack here. But when shane one title there had to be some blowback somewhere right. I don't know if there was Here he jim. Corn tells a story much better than i do. But there an old promoter and paul bosch told me the story when i was probably seventeen or eighteen years old. There's promoter who had this big raffle for a pony ramp. Christmastime and everyone would you know like buy raffle tickets or whatever. They put their name in for to win the pony for christmas and comes time to draw the winning raffle ticket. And the promoter reaches in the bowl shuffles all the entries around and pulls out the slip of paper and he says well. What are you know. My boy. Blue won the poll. Was you know that that people were so pissed that they you know. Done this raffle. There's this big pony big presentation and the promoters kid wins the pony. Here's story the promoters kid wins the championship. It was meant to get a lot of heat. It was meant to get a lot of heat with the audience I don't think you know if got heat with any of the talent than to to them. I would say get over it. The business work and we're telling stories and it was a good story But that's the impotence of that's always do we always say. Hey how about the shame wins. What do you know blue. And that was there you go. That's the story so now not only does he beat xbox for the european title by the way. I assume walkman had no problem putting shane over. None of now not only is he beating one of the better wrestlers in the game for title. He's also getting his his his childhood friends jobs. Tell us about the mainstream posse. Well he wasn't getting childhood friends. Jobs it was shown would tell stories about the mean streets of greenwich in in about his buddies in the mean street posse and i got my posse man and you know the stories were actually true stories about his best friends the mean street posse. They were not called the mean street posse that came out of the over exaggerations about the mean streets of greenwich. Which aren't that mean. There you know every once in a while the lights will be to light on greenwich avenue and sometimes that could be pretty mean in your eyes but other than that. Not much mean in greenwich Other than bank accounts so the idea became and he talks about why not create the main street posse and originally we were going to create Through other talent we had developmental sri posse and bring guys in to portray the mainstream policy and then we ended up using them in vignette the actual guys and low and behold we had our main street. The mean street posse. It was supposed to be a one off type deal that took on a life of its own which it sometimes does in. It was in no way shape or form. I'll hey i gotta. I gotta get my buddies jobs. It was these stories that became larger than life. And then it was like we need a mean street posse then we shot something with the actual mean street posse and then it was like shit. I guess we could use them for some stuff. They'll never get in the ring. We don't have to worry about that. They'll never you know this is just a one off type deal. Have them in the car in the crowd. Then it grew from there. Be careful what you wish for. I don't know about you. But when i think about. Shane mcmahon i think about that. Great theme song. Here comes the money. And whenever i'm thinking about money i think about my money. Got lenny bachan. Lenny has been hooking bruce and.
The History Of Kayfabe
"Earned. Modern professional wrestling began back in the early twentieth century. When carnivals would put on catch wrestling exhibitions this was real wrestling. The competitors were actually wrestling with each other and there would be prize money to the winner. The wrestlers would often competing against locals. Who would win a prize. If they could defeat the carnival strongman so they really did have to know how to wrestle and fight. Unfortunately many of the competitive matches were really boring the bouts rough and nothing more than wrestling holds. Which could last for over an hour watching grown men grab each other for. That long really wasn't that entertaining. The whole point of carnival wrestling wasn't terrestrial it was to make money. Eventually the promoters figure out they could sell more tickets if they made the matches more interesting and that is how started the word k. Fame but self comes from kearney. Talk which is a pig. Latin type of language which was spoken by carnival workers k. Fehb just means fake. As the carnivals began predetermining the winners of fights it was a shortstop to adopting the tropes which were used in all good dramas good versus evil heroic comebacks treachery and betrayal. All of those became part of professional wrestling in order to put on a better show and sell tickets. However at no point did they ever say that the performance was predetermined people had to think they were watching illegitimate competition. So a bad guy and a good guy couldn't be seen together before or after a show the head to commit to their characters all the time. This is the primary difference that separates k. fehb from acting actors perform role and. Everyone knows that they're watching performance in k. Fehb the performer is living the role even when they're not performing and they're trying to convince the audience that israel for decades keeping cafe was the single biggest rule in professional wrestling. It was the wrestling equivalent to magicians not. Divulging the secrets. The primary care mechanism was having baby faces which were the good guys in heels which were the bad guys. The bad guys had to be bad guys all the time. If they were asked for autographs by fans at an airport they would often refuse to sign an insult. The fans just to keep k fehb when wrestlers travelled between cities heels and faces would often have to travel in separate cars and stay in different rooms. Just to keep k fehb. They would even have different locker rooms backstage. Occasionally they would screw up. Wrestlers would get in big trouble if they broke k. Fehb in one thousand nine hundred eighty seven. The iron sheik. Who was a heel was traveling with. Hacksaw jim duggan. Who has a face. They were both pulled over and arrested for possession of marijuana and cocaine when the arrests made the news to cause controversy. Because these two guys were supposed to be enemies yet. They were traveling with each other on rare occasions. A wrestler may go off script and try to really injure another performer. Any sort of predetermined match or storyline is called a work in wrestling circles. And something which is real or off script is called a shoot in two thousand and four for example. The wwe was running a reality show where the contestants compete to become professional wrestlers. One of the contestants was daniel putter. Who is a real life. Mma fighter on an episode of monday night raw wrestler. Kurt angle issued a challenge for one of the contestants to come out and fight him. According to the script putter was supposed to come out and quickly lose however he decided to actually fight for real on live. Tv when angle wasn't expecting it. Putter tried to put england submission hold instead of losing however kurt angle is a real life olympic gold medalist in amateur wrestling and would have none of it. Technically fehb died in professional wrestling in nineteen eighty nine. When vince mcmahon the owner of the then. Wwf testified before the new jersey state legislature that wrestling was scripted in the matches predetermined this was done in order to avoid being taxed and regulated. Like a real sport today in professional wrestling cave is pretty much dead the. Wwe hosts our own documentaries where wrestlers talked out of character and will often break cafe within their own shows however as cafe has died in professional wrestling it seemingly has taken off in other parts of our culture one of the best examples would be mohammed ali yes that mohammed ali to be sure. All of his boxing matches were real and he was one of the greatest boxers in history however the persona. he created of the arrogant loud rhyming. Fighter was total k. fehb he recalled in a nineteen sixty nine associated press interview about a chance encounter with professional wrestler gorgeous george in nineteen sixty one in las vegas. He said quote. I got it from seeing gorgeous. George russell in las vegas. I saw his aides spraying deodorant and opponents corner to contain the smell. I also saw thirteen thousand full seats. I talked with gorgeous for about five minutes after the match and started being a big mouth and a brighter. He told me people would come to see me. Get beat others would come to see me. When i'd get coming and going and quote alley began creating poems about how pretty was and how ugly. His opponents were his interviews with sportscasters. Like howard cosell. Legendary gorgeous georgia's prediction was absolutely true. Love him or hate him. You couldn't ignore. mohammed. Ali
Best of 2020
"Up next we meet one of ireland's finance jeff's kp mcmahon based in galway the michelin starred chefs. Culinary accomplishments include any restaurant and anne robotic cookery school as well as his. Release the irish cookbook. One of the most beautiful cookbook releases off. Twenty twenty till's the story of irish feud and how it has evolved over thousands of years showcasing the richness and variety of food from this green islands with its five hundred authentic recipes. The author jp mcmahon jones me in the studio back in march to discuss the book on how irish food is about so much more than just lamb stew and potatoes as was initially. It was a bit apprehensive because there are many many irish food cookbooks in the twentieth century. But i suppose. I found that a lot of them had been written for an irish audience or perhaps people travelling to ireland. It was important for me to try and give an international dimension and was one of the reasons why publishing with fight on made a difference because they have a global reach and it was in order to try and change the perception of irish food. I think also because we have a restaurant called a near which is will mission star restaurant. We've had it for ten years and we've been investigating irish food for ten years and i felt a lot of the things that we've been doing over. Those ten years weren't in cookbooks. And some of them are very old things like using seaweed using wild food in different ways. And i wanted i suppose that a record of that and that was the start i think the initial for doing it was a had traveled a lot to different places and taking part in chef events and i realized that are affected that we had really good produce in ireland. I'm we just weren't singing about it now. I took part in events in mexico in america and canada in europe and we were always celebrating the cuisine of a particular area. And as why are we doing this. And why aren't we kind of like saying well. We have really good food where shellfish or or whatever so. They were kind of the driving forces behind the book. Now what do you think. Ireland has been so modest about its food on its culinary legacy heritage. I think there's a certain humbleness modesty to irish people and they're probably not the best people at selling themselves like i think we're frustrated capitalists and we want to do things but at the same time we don't want to come across as being bombastic. I think that's worn element. I think the second element is the famine and the subsequent diaz before that happens. I think that impacted irish food particularly of the twentieth century and on the one hand you had people that did not have that much access to food in art and even though there was a lot of food and then the second part you had people who did have access that is food. Who were i think. Predominantly from the anglo-irish irish element and some has be would call the west brits so the people who would be associated with england and these people who had food. I think we're not considered to be irish often. This kind of tension between the tradition that it goes all the way back at least a thousand years between people on the island and people who have food and people don't have food on who we consider irish what we consider irishness tried to take a very broad perspective on it. And so when you go into the archives of the recipe books that you find are from landed gentry anglo-irish aristocracy mostly on. I think when became independent in nineteen twenty two. We kind push that assignment. But that's not really irish. You talk about going to the archives of research did you actually conducts to gather all these five hundred recipes. You having this book. Some of it was looking at best. Baseball's cookbooks from the nineteenth to twentieth century and looking through tried to pick recipes that i thought represented ireland in that respect i found stuff like say pollen is a river fish that is almost forgotten and offend a wonderful pollen recipe. I think in the nineteen seven book and interest. Enough are fishmonger had just been talking about pollen and nobody easing it and it all goes to europe and his fish from nee in northern ireland. That was one thing. I think looking ass older manuscripts was wonderful thing. Because i love history as well and looking at how people wrote recipes and how they i suppose. There was a certain assumption in recipes that the person who was reading new it already so the method was very very scant and often the recipe books were household management books. That would be passed down from mother to a daughter to a granddaughter so people could be able to cook the recipes. Were very interesting. A lot of pickles. Stuff a lot of preserve stuff because there was no frigid. So a lot of salting like i suppose. There's almost like how to live because if you couldn't do these things then you in trouble. Did you come across many recipes that had been practically forgotten already. Yeah like one or two some that we probably would not eat now. One was pickled herring. Which i thought was really interesting because i did a story and friend of mine because i thought didn't they meant herring and she was like no. That's terron lake orion and i was like wow because there's one heron galway and flies up and down and if anyone was to pick them i be in trouble but the interesting thing was that it reminded me of like an s quebec spanish dish where they cook fish or chicken and they covered in vinegar and wine solution and essentially that was the recipe and the recipe started off was like chopped the heads off one hundred hereon got and viscera them. That was the start of the recipe. And i was like wow. That's already a big mess. Some of the other things that are still useful. I think i put it in was quincy and quincy eric. Something that are not native to ireland but there was a lot in the seventeenth and eighteenth century that would preserve a lot of quences and so preserved. Quincy was what i would call mark cross again and again and again and also recipes would almonds. The irish were obsessed with amines. Which again is one of those interesting things to think about because again. Do not come from ireland.

I'm married and I have some properties like once a week like. Didn't you have won last night. Did my friend came over and. It was not planned, but she ended up spending the night and we slept in my bed and my husband's such an guest. Was He. pissed resilient. Yeah. It's fine. It's a slumber party. He no knows the drill. Okay. Okay. Hunter let's just try to keep your mind out for one second. Is this weird? Would you would you be pissed at this was your girlfriend and she wanted to have a slumber party with her friend in your bed and you had to sleep in the guest room? No. Okay finally up against the door with a cup, you know she's going to act like a fifteen year old. So Am I.. Your to the door just listening Meghan should not talking to see if there's any pillow fight tapping. Yeah I'm sure that's what you're listening for it is. Actually. A cute thing I think as we kind of get older. We all kind of realize that you stop doing things with your friends especially as you get deeper into relationships, hunter brings up a good point though because as one of the last single sanding friend like single people in my friends group, I feel like when people get married, they do get surgically attached to their partner and I love the J. largest.

Jennifer Lawrence Confronts Anderson Cooper
"Morning everyone are you ready for some day leave? Just out today. So Morgan and I are joined again by Kisha Knight Polio. Actress a mother and you probably know her from house of pain and the cosby show. Thank you for joining us again and we are. Coordinated, in our Maulvi Pinky we are. Show and here we go. All right. Have you guys been missing Jennifer Lawrence because I definitely have we haven't seen her much recently, but she is back. She hasn't changed a bit. She still holds nothing back. In fact, she's talking about that infamous fall at the Oscars and why is set off of nasty little battle between her and Anderson Cooper listen to what Jennifer said on Heather McMahon's absolutely not podcast. I'm sorry but interesting Coober I saw him on. CNN. Lee. Three days later saying like what she'd obviously the ball and it was so devastated this horrific humiliation to me that like took away like I don't know ever have a chance to give a speech that again I saw him at a Christmas party and I let him know my friend told me that they was. But he apologized and I think I think we're good friends now. Do you think I wanted to fall getting Oscar but I remember when I led with was have you ever tried to walk upstairs in a ball gown? Right. So then how do you know like I with that? He apologized. Oh my gosh. Okay. I gotta go straight. Ahead some pesky reporters. To write stories sometimes, it's so weird. I haven't been in therapy about it for years now anyway, what was the question? is you see this particular person which I know loves you so much Is and you got to run into him or her at a party. What would you WanNa do would you talk to her? Would you say something? Oh my God I feel like I've envisioned this interaction first of all shot to Heather McMahon because I love her she is hilarious hilarious. I am obsessed with her so I'm happy for her that she got J. Lo on her podcast I feel like. Jay Jay said Jay Lop. I said. On kidding. I wouldn't mess up but. I will say I've had visions of maybe approaching certain people that write things and I think it really depends on the alcohol consumption. Cooper I right. I would go to Anderson Cooper because he's a respectable journalist, he made a nasty remark. You know you're getting an apology out of him but some of these other bitches are a little nuts. So I don't know I don't WanNa fuel anymore fire. So it depends it depends one hundred percent i. think that's a very good point you have to know who you're dealing with because if it's somebody who really doesn't like you and you get that five, a day could very easily turn the story around and write a whole other article saying crazy Morgan or crazy. Kisha. Came up in screen that man apart. But the other thing they if they're already writing crazy thing, they can write it regardless you scream are not. So. That's also true. I would say you've got to follow your gut and I completely agree with more again it depends on how many drinks of the consumed evening, how you're going to approach because you know sometimes yeah. You know there's certain like the GENITA- Crown, it may go let. Me Go left. It also depends on who's with you right. If my husband was with me see, my husband gets much more fired up than I do and I know you might find that surprising but he would be the one that would literally do me to say something I think you should say something you should call that did out and. I'm usually the one that's like, no, no, no. No let's just let it calm down. But if I'm getting like talked up into it, then I might yeah, pay south. Yeah versus if I have someone that's like, it's not worth the babe just to let's just go over here I'll be like. All right. You GotTa have your backup backup. Yeah. You got to have the right height man. If you're wanting to do it, it's got to be someone that's GonNa go up with you and have your back no matter what comes out of your mouth but. It's also good in these situations with somebody who's not necessarily your friend to be as composed as possible but I think when you're so heated already. Interaction, never goes as well as you want it to. and. All. Thank you. Scream at them. Yeah. I'm GonNa, say real quick. I think also even better way to handle this have a good woman someone who could do your dirty work for you. So you don't have to be the one that goes says us that this Lella you can have them do it and then your hands clean. One hundred percent yeah you need the right best e with you I like that okay. Moving out of channing tatum. So sad news I think channing Tatum Jessie j broke up again Jesse just posted this video drinking and dancing with the caption single live in a pandemic. That's how you get there strap. We talk about that. A source tells US Jesse and channing broke up months ago because they realize they're just better off as friends now they've brought up and gone back together multiple times at what point. Do you say this is finally do you think this is finally for these two I? I'm. Not Down here, you know I mean. Go ahead. No, you I mean I just think listen like you know it's supposed to be sort of like a new relationship is supposed to be fun. It's supposed to be easy and it might not last forever. But if it's supposed to be the fun easy relationship and you've already broken up four times in between that time, it just seems like clearly there's something here that is not connecting you to something is not working out. So just like leave it alone there's no reason for these to attack broken up three times like. In my yeah. At this point in life, you know my motto is. You know it's like spoiled milk. You don't put it back in the refrigerator. and. Come back and think it's going to be something other and foiled. On because clearly, it was gonNA work by now. Exactly Keach. Have you ever gone through this where you broke out was somebody got back together the whole thing I think that's something that probably when you're younger and you Kinda keep getting things to try and when you fall in love with the ones possibility I think as you get older and you've done it and you've learned that lesson, you realize you know okay you know what? This isn't working for me. It is. Okay. We don't have to make our. Yeah. I luckily, you said Fall in love with their possibility men is that true? Amir Young? You're falling in love half the time with just what you think. They're GONNA be your. Number set and then you realize that potential here and I. Think also when you're younger, you're more willing to be in a relationship that might not be perfect because you don't skip factor in time as much. But I think as you get older, you're like I don't have the time to waste on something that's really too difficult. You don't have the energy either

Everyone's messing with TrickBot
"Your last week when we were talking about how someone was interfering with the trick bought bought net and I said something along the lines of this kind of has the feeling of something that came off a whiteboard at Cyber Command. About that about that. Yes. Other news breaking that it wasn't fact Siva combined all up in trick thought. So yeah we well, you totally cold that one it it was the vibe. Yeah. It did feel coordinated that felt a little different than usual doesn't feel like the normal corporate tax downs we do know that the were some corporates involved as well as. Much. necessarily. The same operational whether it's incidence Mike stuff was also taking down some of the stuff in ways that we've kind of seen them do in the past But yeah, this one did feel a little different and yet it was. Yes. So it turns out Cyber Command were interfering with the trick bought botnets under the auspices of protecting the United States election, right the integrity of the election and confidence in the election because you know US security officials have been quite concerned that an adversary could use the deployment of ransomware on or around the election. Is a bit of a spoiler as a wide sue sort of arrived confidence in the US election I've seen some people pushing back on that on twitter. Some people insecurity saying, well, it's just a theoretical risk but look they have been thinking about this one table-topping this one for quite a long time I can tell you that with certainty I've been on this one for quite a long time. So I'm not surprised to see the move against trick much the same way that they moved against the IRA the Russian IRA that is before the midterms or during the midterms. A couple of years ago back in two thousand eighteen. So I'm not surprised to see them do this. Especially when you consider that trick bought has been linked to your all of shady state-sponsored stuff. Yeah. But I think it does make sense and when we talked last week, you know we speak that a bit about the healthcare impact was the trick bottle being involved in dropping the ransomware on the big hospital chain. We were talking about but I was focusing on the elections in a it's a thing that the Americans are particularly concerned about because it is a realistic thing that can happen but also it's A little bit more mandate to you know, go after and deal with things that are election-related and some of the tops with trick bought selling access rather actors on North Korea's one example incited. Does kind of tend to nations day territory. Both of those things are a little bit more in McMahon's wheelhouse than just like straight up criminal stuff and we've seen some people kind of suggesting that even if the technical risk to elections perhaps as pot credible who knows Hang on hang onto picked off. The trick on state and county systems right that could be involved in the election process some house I you know it does it does actually connect up pretty well I. Think and I had brief chat with Bobby Chesney about this he wrote a piece on it. For Law Fair and he says, yeah, if this is squarely aimed at ta protecting the election, then this type of activity would fall squarely within. The parameters of Cyber Command statutory authorities, right. So it which actually makes it less interesting because if they have done this because of the attacks against hospitals that would be crossing a big line but doing it because of the election actually less interesting. Yeah. It's funny. Funny because. It is a really interesting example of them acting against the network like this where election interfering is probably only one thing that trick part could be used where we've seen it being used for. But. Yeah. You're right. It would have been and we don't we taking action against the theoretical attack instead of the actual one which used down hundreds of hospitals. Just seems to be crazy. A place in the side effect right? If I do disrupt right but on that's it's also not particularly here to what extent this really has caused in payment. The operation of trick bought in the short term perhaps some in the long term doesn't really seem that way. You know we've made him a difference. We don't really know but anything that goes after those actors makes their lives more difficult is a good scientific even it wasn't the primary reason and we've also seen you know one kind of pot in public here and may well have been other actions going on and you know we may see ongoing. Activity against trick bottle you hang on hang on that's the part that's the part that comes next but let's just stay with the cyber command bit for now this could be signaling right? They are talking about this. The Washington Post comes out with four sources on this. They clearly talking about it to certain meteorite. Let's they're talking about it for a reason. Sorry. When people say this could be signaling I tend to think the fact that commanders even discussing it. Supports that theory. Yeah. I think that's a pretty straight line to draw. Obviously, Siva combines don a bunch of other things in the last year or two, and we haven't necessarily seen them discussed the same way as this during the previous mid Tim elections. You know he did see them saying you know we did the was some signaling. Russian ACA saying, Hey, we are up in your stuff we are watching you just. You know kind head things off. So the fact that we had some signaling then I think this has signaling now totally make sense it does. Now, where it gets interesting. Naira. As I said this isn't about the hospitals it's about a theoretical. That could could fall on election related systems right in a few weeks from now. But this begs the question couldn't you make the same argument for all botnets couldn't make the same argument for. In that case in that could be theoretically leveraged a state to undermine the election right and if that's the case why not attack them to? Know that there's any good reason not here I. Think it's very yeah absolutely you we've seen plenty of evidence of other Boston. It's being used to drop initial access as cover being used as unwittingly You know by other intelligence agencies to as vectors into places like there's absolutely a line to be drawn from all of the other big operation is such a natural good place to starve deniable they provide access the indeed they less well protected them. The networks are trying to break into our operation themselves. There's no reason not to go after the other ones under the same kind of logic to me. Well, that's the thing. Isn't it? Doesn't even though we're saying it hasn't crossed a line it kind of has. Saying, is that this? Is a national security risk that justifies the involvement of military organization. It's almost like this complicated. It's almost
Why contact tracing is critical
"Public health officials say the growing White House outbreak underscores why contact tracing is so critical Almost Michelle Esteban is digging into our state is doing in that area and spoke with Colonel Kevin McMahon of the National Guard in charge of contact tracing in our state. I talked to the Department of Health when it comes to that contact tracing They say that they have work to do. They're not where they want to be. And it is a massive mission. You have to remember. We've got over 89,000 cases since the pandemic began, and we really should talk about what is contact tracing. Since the onset of the pandemic. Our state Department of Health has led an effort to contact every person has positive in our state with a goal to do that, for 90% of the cases within 24 hours of test results. We're not their recent example. Just last month of department health reach 49% of those cases within 24 hours, and then two weeks later up to 65%. They do expect improvement, and that really is just a fraction of the tracing that's done in our state. The bulk of all the contact tracing is actually done by local health departments. And right now the state still working on how to track that data. From all of the county health department. Contact Tracing can happen when someone test positive that triggers the process. State team members the National Guard, They'll call you the request contact information for all your close contacts. That is someone who was within 6 FT. For 15 minutes or more of you to let them know that they may have been exposed and they should get tested. They're encouraged to stay home or watch for symptoms for 14 days. I'll just remind you that this is all voluntary. The information is private Washington National Guard alone says since May, it has made 16,480 calls. That's just a small sample of those contacted. But it is telling, says the commander who is overseeing the state's part of the mission tells me that there's a need and we've got to continue to press hard in this. We've got to continue to mitigate the overall impact to covet. S so that we can ensure that our state and especially its citizens are healthy and are able to return to their lives. It is why the state secretary of health urging all Washingtonians to answer or call back right away if they are contacted by public health,
Los Angeles Clippers Complete Historic Collapse As Nuggets Take Stunning Game 7
"Well. This night is going to be remembered for a long time and there's a whole bunch of different reasons why people are gonNA remember it. The laker fans have their reasons. the clippers fans have their reasons. The nuggets fans have their reasons I think I just clip. Yeah they're there It's it's rough right now. I mean I I I think any team that had duplex have experienced. What just there? That is a devastating blow, but I think I just watched. McMahon I'll see if you agree. was. An Absolute Total grade a choke. Oh, not just. All much in the three one aspect I mean that jokes who actually in the three one aspect especially in the blowing double figure leads in the last three games while choke in that even setting that aside, I'm just talking about the actual performance of night. Oh, what it only took him seven minutes in the fourth quarter to get a bucket. Yeah. Okay. We're of P. turnovers than frequent hold on hold your fire is just for a second dinner decided the backboard hold your fire for a sector. That would i. I think what I saw was that was a historic choke job and combined with a spectacular game seven performance by the nuggets or. Spectacular Three game comeback by the neck and look. Let's give the nuggets credit to straight series down three one comeback when Bo series Yokich. There's no. Yeah. But with Yokich is at minimum a second tier superstar right behind the parental VP candidates well. He was a I hear superstar in this game. For sure. He totally eviscerated Kawai Leonard in this game and really in the back half of the series but in this game. especially. Yeah I mean he he was great in this game I mean. Just. Look at the box score Paul millsap only had six points but. his buckets were huge. He played on the better six point three rebound performances. I've ever seen Jamal Murray. We've gotta get in this guy's on the Kahane's factor starting five this year forty points in a game seven. So yes. Absolutely, give the nuggets credit and we've got time to talk nice about the nuggets. But what we need to do right now is pile on the most arrogant bunch of guys. The most Arab arrogant franchises never sniffed a frigging conference finals and hey, props to the Portland Trailblazers back court for completely unloading their troll game. Warden CJ mccollum absolutely deserved to just fire away because you got Paul George and Patrick Beverley acting like they're on some frigging dynasty. They've never sniffed the conference files. Why are they act like there's some you know I mean come on now. So yes, I. I'll be honest I thoroughly enjoyed the collapse and the troll jobs that came along with it.
Dwayne The Rock Johnson is Buying an Entire Football League
"For many of us, Monday nights sieve Longman, Monday, night football. So today's a good day to consider a shakeup in the football world. The potential revival of a would be competitor to the National Football League last week actor and former pro wrestler Dwayne the Rock Johnson with other investors bought a start-up Football League called the xfl this take some explanation especially to those who aren't avid sports fans. Let's start with the xfl contrary to popular belief. The NFL doesn't football is just had a monopoly for the most part for so long that most. Most people consider it an institution for the last couple of decades though rivals have attempted to build new leagues to compete with the. NFL. The XFL is one of those its roots began way back in the year two, thousand when World Wrestling Federation chairman. Vince. McMahon decided to build a league that could compete with the NFL NBC Cohen the League and planned to carry its games the XFL plan to extend the football season by playing games from just after the Super Bowl in February. Until late April. Now, at the time league owners, hopes were high that the Saturday night games could Wu and elusive audience TV. Teenage boys according to CNN. Vince McMahon. WWF had been almost magical in its ability to appeal to twelve to twenty four year. Old Males who typically don't stay home watching TV on Saturday nights. The xfl hoped McMahon could bring that WWF formula to football and win that desirable TV audience, and for one brief moment, it looked like their hopes were within reach the first game in two thousand, one drew more than fifteen million viewers a massive audience. That gold ring looked close and yet it turned out to be so far away as the season wore on audiences spell like a botched handoff after that single season, the xfl shutdown. Sometimes in life timing really is everything, and so it goes for Vince McMahon who decided that twenty twenty would be the right time to revive the xfl it launched in February, pitching the Seattle dragons against the DC defenders teams played five games among both players and owners. Optimism rained TV audiences varied by geography, but were decent enough that by March believe was well into planning the twenty twenty, one season. And then Kobe came along the League canceled the season March twentieth less than a month. Later, the XFL filed for bankruptcy sports writers added the xfl lists of other WanNa, NFL competitors who'd also tried to make a go of it over the years. The XFL seemed to be just another failed startup, but perhaps they declared the league's death too soon. Let's get back to Dwayne Johnson better known as the Rock Johnson actually started his career as a football player, but never made it to the NFL instead, he joined Vince McMahon's wwf where he quickly rose to superstardom before retiring to become an actor, he's now the highest paid actor in the world according to Forbes. With his business partner Danny Garcia who also happens to be his ex wife, the rock led the fifteen million dollar purchase of the. xfl. Out of Bankruptcy Sports Management Company redbird capital as a third partner. Johnson says the purchase was actually Garcia's idea she loves football and when the XFL declared bankruptcy, she saw their chance to own not just a team but an entire league not to get too grand about this. Consider that the salary of a single NFL football star say. Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak. Prescott is thirty, one million dollars. That's more than double what the partners paid for the xfl which has eight teams. Still, the deal made headlines. Perhaps it's a bit of hopeful light entertainment amidst the onslaught of grim. News in two thousand, twenty, Garcia. Johnson. Say They plan to produce multimedia content for fans year round, not just during the active spring season at production time, they hadn't yet said when the League will start to play again.

It's on what you wanna do and the things that you want to do so none of it you know when you're working together twenty four seven on things when you're doing all the things that you have to do it can be a struggle but it's a great struggle and i think that's what makes it work. We often will we'll say to each other because a team. There's nothing we can accomplish and we kind of look at it that way i think is you know the days when she doesn't when when we when our trainer shows up at it's eleven thirty at night and we go downstairs and then all of a sudden she went from stretching to which steph go i realized she has snuck upstairs in his laying down on the couch sleeping and i realize we're kind of needed it came back downstairs with her eyes closed and i was like you are not going to not that train so you have to support each other and try to get each other over those those lumps of of things and if you do then worked but it it it can be a challenge at times as you know what you don't want to bring the stress from work home and and then when you get into it in whoever's complaining about right yeah you know then then the it's it's tough for both sides. It's a hard hard mix. I had one of the great privileges in my professional. Life is to be recruited george steinbrenner the late george steinbrenner who in many ways is a lot like vince someone who is madly respected around the world and is the greatest boss i've ever had lessons. I learned there were incredible. Can you share share with us. One or two lessons. You've learned from vince working so closely with him. Oh my god it's probably been the thing i've learned the most of my life in in some ways you know trying to get emotional about saying it but i came in as a kid. <hes> you know you don't know what you're doing when you started the game what you're doing and laughing so so how do you get past that you live. You learn all the stuff that there's so many of that will look at vincent say what he's like a father a father to me you know <hes> i learned so much from him. Shawn michaels will say you know at a time when he was on the road three hundred days and you know ah odd relationship sometimes at home like the guy that was the most honest with him in the most far father. I don't know i can't say that word. Fatherly to him was was vince sometimes sometimes he aided that sometimes he loved that so for me. The probably the person i've learned the most from in my life might be him and that's not easy. Steph can tell you with all those things things. I'm sure steinbrenner to like it's amazing..

Yes i got like do you trust her. After that yeah you still got to trust her. It was all it was all good fun in the moment and if i think there was a moment in time with a camera guy that i was threatening wasn't sure that it was quite yes whispered in his ear. Put that camera someplace. You're not going to enjoy so you you leave the room and i think he thought i was pretty serious. I have blocked that whole thing. I mean that's the ultimate betrayal to put put him on on punked by ashton kutcher triple h alcohol you. Dan trail punks yeah. I don't know but i don't know about the world you live but that's not the ultimate komo told you my age young putting going on punt was the of betrayal trail back of the hottest show so par born in new hampshire this discipline. Where does it come from because that's not just stephanie saying that's your reputation both as a as as a corporate businessman on the ring. Obviously we're both big fans is he's at mom. What does that come from yeah. I guess my parents just <hes> maybe from a from a standpoint i grew up in a very middle class home small house in nashua new hampshire you know and and they would just working class people but you know they were always about just doing what you need to do this. This is the day you have to do this and you do that and it's just about doing those things and making sure they get done and i don't know if that's where it comes from but for me i started <hes> i had an interest in in getting in the business and probably around round fourteen. I i started going to the gym with the intent of trying to get big enough to get in the wrestling business. <hes> and i think i was just one of those people. You know i i would read about arnold. Who's a big inspiration but i would. You know read about arnold who would say like you wanna you. Wanna you wanna be a professional at this. Do you want to get great at this or do you wanna go hang out with your friends. You wanna party you wanna right. He was the kid that did the opposite. I was the same thing i didn't. It's a funny almost like embarrassing story of mike. I'm the kid that didn't miss one day of in his entire high school career and they give you an award for that which is like over fever the ultimate moment getting the award for you're not missing a whole day of school but the reason i didn't miss school was because i couldn't go train if i did. That was the rule my mom had said like if you don't go to school you can't go to the gym wasn't missed the gym. I'm so it didn't matter how sick i was right. I just i went to school. I after school i was going to the gym and that was just the way it was food. It's a mindset the right <unk> when steph was talking about discipline of food for me. Food is a fuel. Do i enjoy food..

Have you ever sneezed around your father. Totally yes does he. He doesn't hate me for it but it's always like this but on the flip website i've been around one. Oh yes that's going to be embarrassing for a little a little bit that he can't control. Have you heard that alex why that's the thing chummy well. There's just because he he doesn't like anything. He can't control the fact that he's can't control. The sneeze is very yeah. It makes him upset. What's working him for someone. Who is i mean. I've heard many stories. Obviously he's so successful but he's also very controlling. Is it tough day today. I mean how you did you see yourself kind of acting the same way around. You know the people that work for you so it's a great point because i think when i first started out i tried to emulate him. <hes> only i'm not vince mcmahon wrote you know and i think that it's one of the disadvantages growing up in the business because i've only ever seen one way you know i haven't been exposed to that many other leaders and the opportunity to sit under their learning tree that being said vince mcmahon is a pretty awesome learning tree to sit underneath <hes> but i did. I thought that that's that's how you were supposed to run business but i'm not the boss right. So who am i to be giving out all of the direction i was micromanaging <hes> <hes> early in my career and <hes> to and it hurt me and to a point where my father actually had to sit down and have a very stiff conversation <hes> with with what i was doing and that i was disappointing him well. I'm and then i i really needed to to change and <hes> and i did and it took a while but i learned my own style. Well you know and it's funny because i think that a lot of times when you're growing up regardless of who you are but you think you have to be this particular person or you think you're supposed was to be one particular way of business per supposed to act this way and athletes supposed to act this way and it's not until you really realize who you are and you come into your own.

In the way you represent represent you and your family you go to be you and you graduate from communications in and then i love the way you go about at your fitness and nutrition. I've seen you hardcore first of all who inspires you to go out like that and how much they enjoy fitness and wellness so fitness has always been a part of my life. I've trained since i was about twelve thirteen at the time it was my dad and my brother and they'd always be in the gym and i was like welcome. I can't be in the gym. I could the gym and then my mom started getting the my mom's the most competitive out of all of us and she was like curling more weight than me why he's being competitive but i'm going to compete with her. She always one but <hes> so it started early. I think nutrition came later. I don't think i necessarily understood should about the importance of nutrition or exactly how to apply it to me. I knew what to eat. I didn't necessarily understand the whole quantity piece. <hes> i like to eat so i was leading all good too much of the good food but the person who inspires me. Most today is my husband. He is the the most disciplined person i have ever known as an example. He doesn't miss a workout. I mean it doesn't matter if he's sick. If he's had one hour of sleep it doesn't matter. I'm gonna days a week. <hes> well. I mean he trains at least three to four days every week. Strength conditioning wise and then also does cardio. How's the nutrition for paul his spot on. I mean he does whatever he is supposed to do. And that's the thing it's like.

I was about to be signed and triple h behind the right shoulder yeah. We don't want to give it up. We're just baseball. Players went on but now the modern day hogan and is maybe a guy like rock not as his popularity compared to the two icons. Oh i think rock big especially because with all the different platforms that exist today i i think rock has he's probably the number one most easily recognised w._w._e. Superstar of of all time so i mean people would debate that so that's just my opinion but rock is everywhere and not only is he a successful actor. He also runs seven bucks fox studios. He's an entrepreneur. He's an executive. He's a philanthropist. He does everything and he motivates and encourages so many people bolt myself included when you follow him on social media when you look at what he's doing. It's always he's always funny. He's always charismatic <hes> but it's always about hard work and determination never giving up and believing in yourself and hustling all the time. I think some of these yes bad day well. I'm sure he has bad days. Talk about <hes> going through depression really yeah he he's been public about that and the importance of mental health is has mental health awareness month. Yes absolutely so the one thing. I always found interesting w._w._e. The fans are probably the most loyal vocal fans. Fans are our greatest fans in the world right most passionate fans in the world. So how much though do you listen to them. Versus understand that they're so passionate that sometimes sometimes complaints or getting upset at the product is a little over the top like what's that balance like so you have to pick out the themes right there. They have such a loud voice. We have over billion social media followers and we are lucky enough to trend on twitter every single week because our fans are so vocal and so engaged. Sometimes they like what we're doing more often than that they don't and you have to you do have to pull out the the big themes. What are the bigger conversations. <hes> one of the best just examples of listening to our audience successfully has been the give divas a chance movement <hes> back in two thousand fifteen when we had branded are women's division in the divas division and our women were getting thirty seconds of match time it was actually one match specifically thirty seconds women's tag team match and our audience started the hashtag called give divas a chance that trended worldwide for three days <hes> specifically calling for longer matches more athleticism better character development..

"That was an interesting part when when your dad got more involved in the story line and then you have had moments where you've been involved in the story reline has that how do you separate that from being a real business person to then you're on monday night raw and you're getting booed or cheered by thousands of people mostly mainly mostly yes. No i enjoy the booing part. That's just storylines hands on like a wrestler but i used to get out of a set of relating. We're gonna see what that yes but again. It's just sort of been a part of my life. My father's always been in both an executive and on camera and my brothers part of the story line before i became a part of the story line and is just kind of the way it was i i didn't i didn't question it. I do find though now when i meet other business people and they find out that i'm also a character on the show. It is quite confusing to them. Especially benign i then explain i am the villain role playing the boss's daughter putting profits before people and all of that good stuff i would find it therapeutic from like businesses. Listen point because you can just let off some energy like channel channel. I i think everyone needs that so steph. You've had some unbelievable going before we get into the <hes> incredible business vince linda paul yourself have built. It's really an iconic brand that is a global brand and i wanna talk a little bit about when you think about ric flair ric flair vs hogan whose greater in what makes makes a superstar no world too great question <hes>. Let's see i think hulk hogan is one of the most easily recognized i cons in the world he everything because also his size his stature that fu manchu long blond hair i mean he's just he's so iconic. Orange origin red yeah yeah red and yellow actually ripped off the whole thing t-shirt all of that i mean he just he really is one of the i ever. I think truly global icons and rick flair is arguably one of the greatest superstars ever in the history of our business from a pure talent standpoint. I think that you know even hulk hogan would say ric flair has made beat while many miles well because it's our business is not just about out the moves right. It's about telling the story and sucking you in and hulk himself will say like look. I had maybe three moves you know that was about it it but he could tell the story in the ring rick <hes> he transcends our business in many different ways than i think call cogan does and it feels like maybe not picking one over the other but i'm taking each one for different. I love them. Both so i don't care i would watch them yeah. Yes he will like texting me now and i don't know how he's watching somehow. He's always watching. He's always watching just rick. Flair is one of the most lovable people and characters that you will ever encounter in your life and i bet he knows pretty much. Everybody that there there is to know in the sports and media world is the number one factor for being star and w._w._e. Or any other welcome why you and i are nuts. I've always i've always thought this. I imagine it's <hes> you can confirm it but like the ability to speak and what a superstar is on the mike is more important than how they are. You can kinda learn how to get through the wrestling part but that charisma that i wanna watch what they have to say every single monday night is context them over the top. That's right well even if you aren't saying anything. Charisma is just connection when you walk into a room when you walk into an arena full of people people if they take notice of you if you own that room if you have that energy new connect with them. That's what charisma is so. Did i have it. When you walk uh-huh.

So one of the things they would do is give away the results of what was happening on raw but ultimately that wound up backfiring around them <hes> because well they gave away a storyline that everybody wanted to see which was mick foley winning the w._w._e. Championship at the time and it actually completely didn't work the audience tuned in to see the moment and then because we had been building all of these storylines ultimately vince as i call him in business at home home. He's dad which was weird at first but it's not anymore. It's actually helpful because you know your boss is a male. He's just so vince actually said the way we won. The war was just by building a better mouse trap <hes> so <hes> you know we find ourselves. The mouse trap was better storylines. You know it really was <hes>. It's compelling characters. It's intriguing storylines that are relatable that make people wanna see and it's also being ahead of the curve slightly ahead of the curve. You never wanna be so far ahead out of the curve that people don't get what you're doing. Certainly don't wanna be behind. You want to be just slightly ahead.

I watched my dad dad as an announcer and i watched wrestling as much as i possibly could. W w e we we aren't even allowed to actually use the f. blame <hes> per our lawsuit with the world wildlife foundation or whatever it is that we lost you want to tell you about that but ever since i was a little kid and it was just normal to have you know hulk cogan over for dinner mr t. You know ultimate warrior stayed with us first for a little while. I mean that was just kind of the way life was for me. I grew up with andre the giant is my best friend and i never knew any different yeah so i i was actually in doing some research. I heard you tell the story about how you were best friends with andre the giant he was my best yeah yeah. How old were you when you became best friends with katie when you're at home not really yeah so i met andrei gosh. I don't even remember this story. My mom tells the story is about three years old and and i was jumping on the trampoline outside of our house and we lived in cape cod massachusetts and andre drove up in his special van because it had to be outfitted good for him for his size and he got out of his van and it was like his head blocked the sun and ground shaking as he took every step and my babysitter at the time freaked out started locking all the doors you know closing all the windows and i'm out on the trampoline. I don't know what that says about her. Yes yes but my mom tells the story that andre walked over to the trampoline and i was never scared i was never afraid and he he held out his hand and apparently as lorgos. I stepped into the palm of his hand and he brought me up to his cheek and i gave him a kiss on the cheek. Yes and my mom always called andrea my gulliver your friendship with wrestling too right there right from the beginning now you said steph that wrestling was obviously obviously in your blood d._n._a. From day one it was very normal but was there point and for me. I know that there's moments that are never forget like it was like oh my god this is this is bigger than sports. Was there a moment that you want them to a building where you had a hundred thousand people and said holy shit like this and my parents have built on the really cool so i always knew my parents had built something really cool but i didn't quite understand you know i was only about eight and when wrestlemainia one took place and my parents mortgaged everything they own to make it happen and it actually was exactly what my dad was trying to do is make it bigger than sports.

And professional wrestling and also get in the ring yeah so how do all that she is the true triple threat and here's the one thing i wanted to ask you about because i thought this was very interesting. We've talked to stephanie at length about the loyal wrestling fans and how oh you deal with a fan base that is incredibly loyal but also expects a lot from you so you have been in that world where you have had the most loyal fans in the world than in all the cities you've been having to deal with that fan base and having to deal with the pressure of people who want you to perform night in the night out. What does that due to someone. You know when you're talking about listening to everything or listening to nothing. How what's that balance like yes. Sometimes you feel like you're just an affairs wheel. Go round and rounding. What's interesting about this incredible brand. They've built you know unlike you and i we have a homefield. We had yankee stadium. <hes> you have barstool here in new york and in sokoto. There is no home field for w._w._e. They just go on the road for fifty two weeks.

Steinbrenner is one of the great great entrepreneurs <hes> <hes> in both thinker to just goes for like jerry jones. We'll we'll be talking about. This family for the next hundred years but stephanie to me was a combination of all of it. She was you a strong like her father. <hes> she was a pioneer in the way she got into ring like her father but also is is incredible businesswoman and leader in her in triple h what they're doing to take w._w._e. For the next generations is absolutely awesome and they just do not compromise on the quality of their work work. That's an interesting point. You just brought up george steinbrenner and vince mcmahon kind of <hes> those two like the presence. Those two guys have over for the business that they ran. Obviously georgia's pass put. Were you ever nervous going into george steinbrenner's office talking to her steinbrenner. Did that ever go away. Never never i mean you. You know it's funny dan when george steinbrenner would be here in new york from tampa you know all the guys who've been walked landed legal has land and but they actually really did need to tell us that because when you walked into the old yankee stadium the hallways were perfectly clean. It smelled great. You know how new car marshmallows yes. That's how old yankee stadium that was built. In the early nineteen hundreds it smelled like a new car and then when he wasn't there was still good but it wasn't george steinbrenner claimed it didn't and have that shine. That's actually really interesting so you didn't even have to be told that. George steinbrenner was coming up the boss. You just knew it by looking around and being like well. Something's a little different. If only disneyworld everyone was tucked in everyone had their hats in everyone and why was nice and tight and that's what leadership does you feel leadership. Even when you don't see it you feel it interesting interesting yeah. That's a good point and i think stephanie is much like her father that type of leader where she probably has that presence now in the wrestling world and with the people apple she works with where they feel her presence as chief brand officer a w._w._e. So <hes> this is an awesome interview..
"mcmahon" Discussed on Something to Wrestle with Bruce Prichard
"Is this a russo ism to put mick foley as a heel here or is this more of a cornet deal this was basically this was taking the three faces of foley in realizing that okay when you take one character you can have these multiple personalities and do something completely different with another character it was an experiment all credit rousseau and cornet both for coming up with this and trying to recreate those through faces of foley and it was good because like you said people wanted the fun loving dude love and here you know he's shown signs of the the mankind character more but enter different outfit it's sort of fun too because while it looks like he's there to do mcmahon's bidding mcmahon wants to get back in the ring and dude love is is trying to swing and kick his direction so it's almost like it's every man for himself but the stooges are convincing bench to back off and ease back up the ramp and dude love gets back on the microphone and says hey if you want some come get some i got plenty more where that came from it almost feels like dude love as he'll here was just being opportunistic let me take advantage of the champion the very moment i know he has one arm behind his back right and you know and as time goes on you find out at all was a big reuss with mcmahon and that they were working together but it's it's good it's believable shit the way that they did it.
