"By Ted dibiase. And then all of a sudden, who sees persona, he got over as a baby face. I remember one of the worst cuttings he ever gave me was one night after all. Was over, and I went back to the locker room area and there he looked down at the floor like he was looking for dimes. And I said, well, how's it feel to be a big baby face, man? I got an FU and SOB and, you know, he was ripping my ass. I said, well, let me hold on a second. Because I knew what motivated stoical. Yeah. Money. I said, you know, the money you could make. Simply on a merch. Is astonishing. You'll make more money on merch than you've ever made with a resting contract. And he raised his head up off the floor and looked at me. And he was searching for more info. I said, you're going to have quarters of income where you're going to make 7 figures. And you know I both know 7 figures is a $1 million. That's a lot of t-shirts. You might say, but you've got your audience is growing at least some bounds every week. There's more posters every week. That's a great market research. The promoter should look at the science and the audience. I love it when AEW fans rank signs. It tells us what's on their mind, which are thanking what has their interest at that point in time. Right. So he got over his heart on for being a babyface and started accepting the role because becoming a baby face might not have been his preference. He wanted to be an old school heel. I said your shelf life would be longer as this character baby face. That's what he was. He wasn't Ricky steamboat, Ricky Morton, trying to kind of a baby face. He was a character baby face that didn't change his work style. It changed his whole his mannerisms as a sequencing or nothing. He just was a rough ass character baby face. And I told him, you know, you're kind of like cowboy was. Back in that air, cowboy was not going to take a lot of bones. Right. But he was so much run into his fist as often as you wanted to. Until it was time to go home. And people loved it. They lived by carelessly through that. So he started coming around in that regard, but and we all knew that somewhere down the road, you know, at some point, stone cold versus red heart was the money. And it was money. WrestleMania 13 was a hell of a massless dude sad. So as a double turn, and those are hard to pull off. I've been a part of many successful ones. So yeah, I think that I think that we were on the cusp of doing a lot of things, but we needed Brett. To make sure it all worked. Because he had a stability, and he added believability to the process that we're trying to achieve. So it was interesting time to say the least in this episode of raw is really compelling and standpoint that it opened a door for a lot of things. It's going to be a different day, different era, different priorities. And it was looking back on it is a whole lot more exciting now than it was then because then we didn't know where we were going. We didn't know. Is this going to work? And nobody created the attitude era when nobody was supposed to think, oh, attitude air, shit, nobody knew what that was. We wanted to get new talents involved. There were hungry. They were looking for an opportunity. And nobody was hungrier than the stone cold. And I know this is not a stone coach show, but that was kind of the mindset of what we're trying to do. You have guys a chance that has been working a long time. There were good hands in the ring. There were pro wrestlers and they were doing. And that included at the top of the very list was Bret Hart. Red hart was where it all started in the trickle down from Brett was prominent and significant to say the least. Well, to be clear, it kind of is a stone cold episode because he's one of the opponents that Brett's looking forward to working with the most, and of course we know it'll be Brett's first opponent. But before we press play, I want to ask a couple more questions. One specifically about Bret Hart. I'm not exactly sure when the timeline happened, but I know in 1996, is when we see JJ Dillon leave and go to WCW. And I believe that happened, the month prior in September. So I am curious since you're now going to be trying to tackle some of the talent relations stuff on a Bruce had a cup of coffee in that C to believe. All right, he did. But were you involved in any of the Bret Hart negotiation? No, and you know, that was a comedy nominator through the years of advance. He took ownership of certain talents. Got it. When we brought in return Hogan, you know, I had no relationship with Hogan. And unfortunately, I still don't have one at this very day. I respect him. I don't dislike him. I just never got close to it. Then this had a close time. And they had been closer in 19 would say, but no, I didn't have that was all Vince. Some of those talents, like warrior, and Brett, of course. The one that he let go of because I got more results than Vince did was Austin. Right. Officer became my guy. And, you know, I did everything I could for stage to win and for the company to win. For the company to win with Austin, make sure his contractors solid. And he's happy. And make sure he's getting paid well. Based on what he's earning and what he's selling. Again, the house show business was a huge component of what we were doing and added to the bottom line of these guys income. But Vince was Brett versus guy. And we also wanted to handle Brett himself. And I think that was a smart move quite frankly. I could back it up. I could reinforce his theories and his feelings and so forth to Brett when it was called upon. But this one to make sure he took care, Brett, and I said, have at it. Because that gave us you know, that helped me out a lot. It helped me get a deal done. Basically because we answer trying to was ramrod again. And I think that made bread feel good. He's being intended to by the top guy, and not a ham and air from Oklahoma. What's the hold up? Do you need me to spell it out for you? It's GER, CO dot com. That's why you save money. Geico dot com.

"Or is it more important to be principled stand for something in this case, an anti racist Ah, you know, bend in a monk here amongst your promotion, and I think we're finding out the answer. Then again, I'm not like decrying Dana White and I'm not putting him in the you know in a bad place, but The fact that he won't address this is frightful. He did address that. He just said, I'm not gonna muzzle anybody. He absolutely addressed that. He didn't just say no comment, he said. This is in essence, this is how we do business. And if you don't like it Don't watch or don't come. That's pretty much what he said. And unfortunately, that's going to happen and I don't know because it's as twisted as this is, Boy. This is going to get people to reach for that, You know, $50 for paper view. It's going to teak. There's been great technical fights lately. I don't dispute that. Where's the splash? Where's the juice? There's Where's like energy. Where's the story line? There is none. I mean, Tyron Woodley lost this fight, not because he supports black lives matter. Azaz, he said. As Colby Covington said, This is his quote. He's a communist. He's a Marxist. He stands for criminals. He hates America. That's why he got broke tonight. He lost because, as you just mentioned Tyron Woodley is a technical fighter, right? He's a wrestler who learned to be an intimate fighter and was a champion for the UFC. But he's very technical and emotional, violent sport like the UFC. Sometimes you need a you need a little extra little something else. You D'oh! D'oh! D'oh! That's why he lost not because of You know the narrative. That the victor is creating. That is Koba Colby Covington is creating, And so is it dangerous? I mean, that could be it could be, But it's not because right now this this the arenas are empty and there is no hangover other than the story gets told, unless You know all of the other fighters in the UFC promotion band together and say where we refuse to fight him, you know is much that's not gonna happen. I know it's not going to be all lined up to fight him. Out of anger, but what's but what's But what's worse, anger or apathy that well in the fight game apathy. Yes, that's what I mean. So but no, I'm meeting that's more detrimental to the people who if they follow what you said to be apathetic to a guy that's gonna put money in your pocket is bad for you. Yeah, I know. That's what I'm saying. And that's the problem. So you'd rather lineup and try to kick his ass. Here's the other thing you have to consider if President Trump called them Trump call them and it President Trump gets reelected. You know Covington's got four more years. You know to to do this now, If Trump is not elected, you know, Suddenly the hat that he wears is it's not as it doesn't matter as much of it kind of goes away a little bit for sure. Not that he can't you know, Rifle off, you know, inflammatory things, Whatever. But I to me. I don't know. This is really To make the UFC has become a little bit. And as I think it's a good analogy, you know, there's you know, I used to love wrestling and there were just certain matches where you've got a great technician. That guy's phenomenal Leo Ricky Steamboat was a great nominal wrestler. But after a while you needed Ricky in the ring with a guy who could work the microphone because you just did to that extra pop that splash tohave. You know, Two guys roll around like Bret Harte and Ricky Steamboat or somebody like that. For an hour. Yeah, I love that because I was a real wrestling fan. But the average fan needs that juice that, like Piper would draw you in with the microphone. And right now, you got a lot of steam boats and ah lot of bread. I know this is an antiquated reference. I get that, but Ah lot of steamboats and bred horse rolled around the octagon, but not a lot of pipers. And you need a piper. You need a Roddy Piper in the fight game. He wants to be a heel. He was the bad guy and He's he's embracing being the bad guy. He's just doing it very close to the edge. So yeah, very, very close. Very no doubt know, no doubt. No, I mean in certain spots. He's crossing the edge. Yeah, Look, The ironic thing is that in the old WW.

"2020 Democratic ticket is said ABC is Terry Moran says It comes after a lot of anticipation. Former vice president and presumptive nominee of the Democratic Party has chosen Kamala Harris, California Senator And a former rival for the Democratic Party nomination to run with him against President Trump and Mike Pence more from ABC is Adam Kelsey, 55 year old Harris is still in her first term as a California senator after serving is the state's attorney general for six years. In an email to supporters, Biden wrote. You make a lot of important decisions as a president, but the 1st 1 is that of a running mate, and that he believes Harris is the best person to take on President Trump and vice President Pence. The first black woman to join a major party's ticket. Harass his own presidential campaign ended in December prior to the first nominating contests. Adam Kelsey ABC NEWS Washington Not long after the announcement, Biden's wife, Dr Jill Biden, sent Harris's husband, Douglas em off a tweet saying You ready Area. Aldinger ABC news more conferences or postpone E Fall SPORTS due to the covered 19 pandemic, Big 10 Commissioner Kevin Warren, saying in a statement there was just too much uncertainty regarding potential medical risks to allow student athletes to compete this fall. College football powerhouses like Ohio State, Michigan and Penn State will be sidelined for the foreseeable future. However, it is possible the conference moves fall sports to the spring. It's unclear if other major conferences like the SEC, Pac 12 A CC and Big 12 will follow The Big Ten's lead.

Theme in American and Mount West. Conferences have also postpone their fall seasons for news any time on demand. Its 700 wlw dot com I'm Sean Gallagher News Radio 700 WLW Demand I Heart Radio Online on your smartphone, iPad and tablet 700 wlw dot com and being a man When I think of the greatest rivalries, feuds of all time, I think Hatfields and McCoys. I think Alexander Hamilton and Erin Byrne. I think Jews and Palestinians, I think Ric Flair and Ricky Steamboat, I think, os you in Michigan. But above all that Hamelin County versus the city of Cincinnati. That is the gift that keeps on confusing. It's good morning, slowly back on 700 wlw in jumping right into it. Today, the city of Cincinnati shut up its own project. Let me say that again. The city of Cincinnati. Under the leadership of John Cranley has shut down its own project. I'm talking about that brand new concert venue that's going in in the shadows of Paul Brown Stadium. The music venue itself, actually not affected a cz Muchas of the streets. Because the contraband he's privately funded. We're talking about the area. That would be the infrastructure approaching that along Race street, And that, of course, is now being shut down by City Council. This thing makes no sense wasting away. Why would they wait? Why they doing this? That's the number one question that no one knows, made a lot of calls this morning. And I'm getting no answers. Maybe. Maybe Christopher Smitherman apparently is running all of City Council, The city Vice Mayor Smitherman Terrel on public safety chair of economic growth and development. He's taking it all on this morning, Chris. Good morning. How are you? Hey, Good morning, Phony howare. You know when you said Ric flair like brought back memories player, Ric Flair and Ricky Steve, but one of the great wrestling rivalries of all time. It's no triple agent Shawn Michaels. But it's up there. It's up there. Maybe the undertaking when Ric Flair When peoples are no, Jefferson, the nature boy, the nature boy. All right, let's get down to it here. I don't want to get off in the weeds because just trying to figure this thing out if I if I would lay this whole case out in front of If you're listening this morning tea go. Okay. What? What's going on here with permits and long story Short is this the city issued a permit for construction on or about June 1st, the City Council sold a portion of Ray story a small sliver of race and I think this It's a tiny parking lot on race Street. What is what it Wass. The City administration never executed the deal never submitted it to the Hamlet County auditor's office. So now the mayor's going Wait a minute. We're going to use that as a way to hold this project up. In order to get I don't know what but get what we want. And so it doesn't make sense that to say that is the mayor's John Cranley, using the incompetence of his own city manager. To hold up a project that will benefit ultimately northern Kentucky. So let me say you are. You really are setting it up for me. Um, let me online a couple of things. One. Um, You know, I don't believe you don't believe that our city manager Paula knew thing is incompetent, but I think this is I think this is the home of this goes back to Tony done it well, the discussion right now this is the list back up and say this is a 15 17 year deal where the city and the county got together. And the city owned land. The county owned land. I'm just trying to make this simple. We all got in the room and we're gonna work together. But we didn't give up ownership of our land. We say it. We're all going to cooperate for the good of the city and county and so lot 1 13 23 24 25 are all in play. And so eight months ago, Commissioner Topper Tune within hospice. The mayor went to him. Obviously, we're not goingto hash out. All of that That was happening and they cut a deal and everybody agreed eight months ago. That lot. One in Lot 13 would be conveyed to the city. This is our land. It's not the county's land. And I think if the county representative came on, they would say Okay, enough. What happened? Here is lot 23 hours. We're saying that we want to build a park. We're paying for the park. Um and we're interested in the county of signing that contract to build the park. And sold a discussion about 23 I'm being very open about it is spending a message to the county to complete the deal that they agree to eight months ago regarding lot one and lot 13. And I know that their discussions happening. You know they were happening last night. I'm sure they'll be happening this morning. I think that permit is going to be executed and things were going to go forward. The question is is when, as partners in the county and the city are we going to say what we agreed on eight months ago? We're going to make sure that we codify that in writing to the city, and that's what we're waiting for. From the county. Here's Here's Chris. Hold on. Here's the that I get what you want and broken. I get what you're saying. And no from the counties to you're the only one. I think the only one smart enough or may be dumb enough to come on the show this morning to talk about this, Kristi. No one else wants to talk. It's like the third round and you don't care. No, I don't have anything to lose other than try to be a good publisher on wide and slowly and unwind it myself. This is hard to follow. And I'm trying to lay this out without the benefits of graphs charged power Point presentations, animations, gifts. Things like that were talking this out this morning on the show, and it's awfully difficult for me to follow. I can't imagine if you're listening. I I I don't know just lot 13 and 22 23 27. And so I think the key thing from Keith that I believe that the permit Is going to be issued for lot 23 that the park is going to be built. That's a music venue that is being paid 100%. Yes, by the music venue people right, 100% and we thank them for that end and the music then you cannot be successful without the park. We all get that and understand it. What we do want is to make sure that the deal that we have agreed upon that they are codified and we're asking any county..

It's going to be bigger than ever. I'm looking forward to seeing so many my friends or their golly great lineup. The promoters have done a wonderful job of organizing. This thing I don't enter their job man of book and a hundred wrestlers over a three day period is like hurting chickens as somewhat daunting at times and will exasperate once patients if you're not careful, so we're looking forward to that. It's going to be a good deal. I did wanna make mention of proud of the women of WWE for the outstanding broadcast on Sunday night. Boy that was challenging to try to watch. Wifi. Here is. Is very scarce to be honest with you, very scares. And so getting this show back to San Diego for producer, Ted ain't been easy. But we're we get it all done. I was listening to it apparently Becky and Charlotte delivered the goods the kicked pure ass. And that was from a lot of people it as I saw pieces of it more of it on Monday than I did on Sunday, quite frankly because we're actually get a little bit of a wifi now. It was amazing what they did. And they didn't close his show, but the could have obviously. But I think, you know, the the issues WW closer show as a real with a happy ending Becky is allegedly being position as a villain, which I don't agree with. It's not working in that respect. But I I love to see the fact that she's developing as a star if you wanted to be a baby fae, she's maybe face. I think that's what she is. Because the you're paying customer your greatest research material tells me that the fans cheer her they're buying her merge. If they hate us if you hasten about it that badly as as a character television character, why would you buy their merchandise? What would you represent them? If you didn't like them as performer, it's pretty simple math to me. But in any event, Ronda Rousey, and Nikki Bella closes show. That's macaws Rousey has the power rouses. The top female in the company some rock going to lie. That if she the best wrestler a company today, she's not she's the biggest attraction in the company of any gender. Perhaps you can make an argument or that. So that rows e close the show, and as we predicted here, the shows opened by Trish and lead us tag match. I guess mickie James Gatto mic, and at least FOX took the spot of Alexa bliss. So we've predicted that one and it came out we got lucky lucky gas, and then the the show closed Rowzee, which is again as no wrestling purist out of close with what pursue to be the best wrestling match that did have a happy ending. Unless you're the Bella pan club, the not so happy. So I I'm just saying like as a real good show, and it up list everybody it gives everybody a knowledge that things can be done changes can't be made. And of course, you know, I've been hit by the media about ask about Saudi Arabia. Well, what about Saudi Arabia? Well, there's a couple of things flow. But I don't need to be talking to the media about anything right now. But one of Saudi Arabia. I can't give you an answer that you're going to buy if you're anti have any event, I can't convince you it's the right thing to do. So I shall not try. I think it's about the bottom line..

Indian burial ground which is supposed to bring them back to life and it does, but it brings them back different something wrong with them. So just looking at how they upgraded it from the first interruption of the movie that came out to the one just killed it. The box office is past year. I'm thinking pet cemetery will be the same thing. It's they're saying if he loved the book ago, the movie. So I'm thinking it's going to stay pretty true to the story. It was a very, very freaky. Scary book. I can't wait to see how they're going to make this modernize pet cemetery, but we'll have to wait till April fifth of twenty nineteen to see this movie. Okay.
