"TWU TORCH DOT COM SLASH KGO VIP to sign up to what's talking about a PG Sean woman I mean. It's twenty, th anniversary nitro. I'll just preface before through. Sean Waldman was pivotal in the Monday night wars. He was the workhorse on the team of Scott Hall, and Kevin Nash I did you know six seven hours of torch talk with Kevin Nash Six seven hours of Torch talk shortly thereafter, Scott Hall. They both said Sean Walton was in not just because he's a good friend of they're still to this day but he was integral in that the outsiders working because he could. And Sean when he jumped w when he jumped from www wwf. It was a turning point. Now granted a lot of other things were going on at the time in it had to do with somehow in some ways with how hall and Nash reacted to the way Bischoff. Fired Wolman and how he reacted to at John's talked about it I was on the phone with Sean Waldman when the Fedex guy showed up and Shawn opened the envelope where he got fired while was on the phone with them. It changed everything and part of that was when Sean went and joined deacs it brought some of that C, W outsider and W. O.. Credibility to DX that it didn't have previously when it was kind of a different vibe with China and Shawn Michaels, and there are a lot of things going on. But that is the turning point in the Monday night wars that it could have been somebody else in might have made a big difference too. But Shaun's contributions to wrestling from the one two three kid rates Ramon. Angle. And match to the Monday night wars. He's absolutely check enough boxes to be a hall of Famer. You yes. Every.

"Hey thanks for taking time to join us today Scott I want to begin, and we'll bring pj Walker, just incredible and conversation in a couple of minutes here. The the movie, the Resurrection Jake the Snake Roberts is something that you've got to kind of see in real time. I can remember when DP was on the show a couple of weeks ago. If he had said, you were really involved in the final product very much or giving your input. Did you have a chance to to see the movie being made and have some input in that process? Well. I was I was inferring of the cameras I didn't have any input on. The edit there anything like that. You know it's it's really organic. It's not real slickly produced or anything. It's kind of like a home movie. You know they were documenting that Jake was going through and then Dallas decrease out to me a couple of years ago and You know I moved here to Atlanta and joined him. He's going really great for Jake and myself since then. And you know I just want to. Take. Up I. think that a lot of people out there either have it in their family or know somebody who suffers from some kind of mental illness or Some kind of addiction diction, some substance abuse and I think that This message, there's hope I never go up. You talk to Jim Ross I. Think it was recently for Fox sports pretty candidly more. So maybe than I've heard you talked before. About the post, traumatic stress disorder and and I thought it was I kind of moving and touching that that you said. That people should not travel the same path that you did. And you also talked about being focused now, looking forward and short term goals Hearing you talk about that with all that you've been through I think has given who you are has some authority and I can make a difference Would you mind talking a little bit more about that and and what you mean about people not traveling down the same path? What kind of advice are you giving out based on your life experience especially what you've been through the last two three years and tied of finding a different way of a different outlook. Well when I was younger know I was involved in a really traumatic incident, a shooting nightclub parking lot and. You know I just. Instead, of seeking like some kind of counseling or something, then I just went through this whole kind of macho thing like now I'm cool. I'm okay I'm fine and finally just Kinda held everything in for for so many years that along the way I developed a lot of that coping skills. You know I started suppressing my feelings with booze and pills and it It got to the point where I was full and you know I tried multiple rehabs and You know with nothing was really sticking for me because. You know it was. It was actually the wellness program kicked in. They recommended that you know 'cause I've been attending and participating and and all the programs that I've been into prior to that time and. They said, well, let's start China treat the root problem said of the symptoms of symptoms where this bad behavior bad choice making you know. You know substance abuse, but the root problem was you know? Something that I needed to deal with with psych-, psychiatric and psychological health and not just somebody saying, Hey, don't drink go to meetings. You know that wasn't sticking for me. So once I went down that path you know working I think I know there's a lot of stigma with stuff like that seems. Like as but. You Know I. Wish I'd done a lot sooner. So I'm just my message just anybody out there suffering from some kind of stuff. You know don't hold it in ask for help if people offer the out this struggle people were offering me help and I wasn't accepted it 'cause you know it was like nine. How cool cool. When I wasn't cool I was early struggling. And a lot of that stuff comes out in the movies like you opened with. I just think there's people to you know give it a look. You know it's not some Hollywood thing. It's kind of a home movie. But. It's a shoot you know. So that's Kinda cool. and. I know that's that's really all I got to say, thanks for having me and. I I understand PJ's coming on. So we're him the best and thanks for having me. He's got if if you don't, if you've got a second year lowering PJ in just to say hello to you before you gotta go I guess Scott dropped tougher. All right. Feature Lock just incredible. Welcome to the program. How you doing so bro, not much good to have you on the show I know you and Scott Hall Way. Back. And you've seen him through his ups and downs and it's one of the reasons that I was hoping to get you on the program today to especially with Scott's busy schedule. He's he's been pulled in so many different directions promoting this movie and with other stuff going on with him. But DP worked hard to get them to pop on the show here on talk a little bit about the movie. But you've seen him go through ups and downs how much you were around him recently weren't you? was. Just. Just last month. Yeah I. Mean You know Scott's always been a big brother to be almost like a father figure. In Oh we've shared we've shared ups and downs shared. Happy Times. We've said sad times. We've cried we laughed you know and and you know It's very true what he said you know traumatic experiences in our lives sometimes caused these things and we don't even know sometimes what the root causes I think what a lot of people don't. Do underestimate is how much sometimes mental health issues. Do 'cause. you know Alcohol Abuse Drug Abuse Depression you know and I think you we just sometimes do those things to mask our emotions because we we're either to embarrassed or too macho to to go see for help especially back then maybe not necessarily now but back then. On the Breslin culture. So I totally understand I. I was in the same boat I certainly never had anything as traumatic as happened with Scott You know I I you know but it still it's we all have our own Our own issues and I, think that's A. Huge part of the healing process and understanding why we do what we do and People take the easy route and blame it on wrestling. But it's not just about wrestling I'm not saying wrestling's one hundred and twenty percent You. Know. Not. It is you know everybody has some culpability but a lot of has to do with who we are on the inside. So I think it's a great documentary just before I got on I saw the The preview to the movie, the trailer in it's so compelling and I know Jake. Jake Gallison Scott, very well Scott. I know the best and and I I I. It's it's all true. It's all amazing and it's all very raw and very real. You know. We're now.

"A really great match Halloween havoc with Harlem Heat but one later we're at World War three and we've decided to make it a three way with Ming and barbarian and one corner of the nasty boys in the other I gotTa Tell You Fan I did not think that either one of these teams were even a remote threat to Kevin Nash and Scott Hall who at this point had been positioned as tippy top guys in this era hey man are tagged business cow it was kind of thin and there was a lot of discussion during the appeared of time about tag team titles and Tag Team Division of General I'm Gonna I'm GonNa say this and probably many people are going to disagree with me today as they did back in ninety six but from a business perspective purely a business perspective not a creative one it's dollars and cents a tag team division is very very inefficient from a cash flow perspective if you think about it from our producers point of view now from point of view but if you if you are responsible for the bottom line if you have a talent budget and you have to live within and despite what people may want to think or have been conditioned to think that was indeed the case ninety six I had a very specific talent budget and I had to come in underneath it at the end of every year what you look at a tag team match you got four guys in a ring having a match for anywhere from I don't know probably eight minutes sometimes twenty twenty-five on television on rare occasion it's it's a segment or in some cases maybe two segments but you've got four guys in the ring to deliver that let's call it segment because most of the time we're doing one segments generally speaking at the time you got four guys in a ring producing a segment instead of two guys so you've got double your talent costs you've got double your transportation costs it becomes very expensive to have a meaningful I team division because if you're going to build a tight team division and really make it meaningful you're going to need six or eight teams four to six at a bare minimum so that you can tell stories in builds to a climactic finish in pay per view or climactic end to you know a two or three months or whatever it is you're trying to do we're trying to build a team they have to overcome challenges not just one tag team maybe Billingham baby-faced eighteen to begun you know huge baby faces they're going to you have to feed them heel tag teams over the course of three or four months so if you just look at it from dollars incense point of view attempting vision is in a very very expensive commodity so I I wasn't a fan of tag team wrestling they didn't like watching it but because I didn't like paying for it and I still believe that's true to this day you know it's really hard if you look around the the wrestling landscape tag team divisions are tough and expensive to keep populated with great talent because of the financial pressure that comes along with it it's too easy to start talking we got this great tag team but tonight he's going to wrestle in a singles match tonight she's GonNa wrestles things match because got we need that segment in the minute you start breaking those tag teams up and doing one off singles matches and things like that all of a sudden you're kinda deluding Dav behind that tag team and you know that was one of the reasons why we didn't have a great tag team division of Ninety six because I wasn't putting in vs on it because economically it was just not an efficient way to manage talent budget let's talk about something else that's going to be discussed on the Buzzer this lawsuit from the WWF when they're saying I using our characters and you know we created the Razor Ramon character and he still looks like Razor Ramon and you guys would argue when I actually looked like dominance todd when he was raised Ramon whether certain elements that you consciously stayed away from them and we know we've got the slicked back hair and we got the little girl in the front got the tooth fig but did you think hey if we go so far as to give them the old Mr T. starter set with all the jewelry maybe that's taking a too far no and in retrospect I don't WanNa say it was mistake because if you go back and look at the Diamond Stud character before Scott Hall went to the WWF from the toothpick to the curl aw to the Puerto Rican influence it was all there now I'm not going to suggest that there wasn't some similarities between Scott Hall's appearance when he showed up WCW any former character wwf razor Ramon and I think probably the slicked back hair exactly the way it looked with a curl exactly the way it looked with probably the thing that got WD deal I don't know we've Never we had that discussion bowes probably one of the things that really got the hang hung their hat on but well I'll tell you what an even after all these years one of the things that Piss why say it pisses me off just like God damn it we could have won that as you go back and you look at the time of said character that was an issue that no one no one on the legal side of turn abroad casting racist they just didn't do a good job fighting Jerry McDevitt they couldn't they just weren't clipped and when Jerry camped out on that similarity between the The the WWF Razor Ramon character and this similar look of Scott Hall and WCW one of the first things that I a decent attorney's should have done his coat no mother fucker look back to nineteen ninety one or nineteen ninety-two whenever it was when did I miss todd was flicking toothpaste toothpicks at the crowd but that was the one thing that Jerry McDevitt the probably the largest thing not the one thing there are other things probably one of the more significant issues that they raised in that lawsuit is the similarity between Razor Ramon and Scott Hall when he showed up and WCW and I submit that he didn't show up looking like razor Ramon necessarily show up look like diamond studded wearing Jean Jacket or vest the I think he was missing is the jewelry and that makes me think about our friend Stephen Singer and I'll tell you the competition must really hate the sky. He makes the experience of buying a diamond and better and better and he makes fun Stephen is the very first to offer each and every customer the perfect price that's right have you ever wondered if your accent getting the best price are you uncomfortable negotiating head the Steven Singer jewelers and you're guaranteed to get the perfect price you'll never pay more than the Gospel sitting next to you and here's a little insider tip most jewelers mark their merchandise way up just to mark it down to make you feel like you're getting a deal the guy next to you may be paying less do you want the most important purchase of your life to be based on your negotiating seals it's never the case at Steven Singer because at Stevenson your jewelers you're guaranteed the perfect price all day every day three hundred sixty five days a year and that's all we trust Stephen Singer he makes the experience so buying a diamond so easy so check out steven singer jewelers at the other corner of eighth and Walnut in Philly or online I hate Stephen Singer dot com Steven Singer jewelers one place one price they've been with us for a while now and You're a big believer in Stephen Singer aren't you I am so over because of Stephen Singer not only with my bride Mississippi but with my daughter my daughter-in-law want to send a loved one something that's really unique that they're gonNA remember for a long time probably end up the mantle or a dresser your room or something like that go to steven singer dot com it was so many Gibson somebody unique great gifts that are amazingly affordable I hate Stephen Singer dot com check it out right now something else I hated It was when you guys started let any old Tom Dick and Harry into the interview Oh and happens towards the end of the year we would see the report they're gonNa add a lot of guys the interview Oh so they have enough wrestlers to fill a one hour show without putting hall Nash in the Ring For Twenty minutes every week the downside is that it makes the end of your less exclusive as the cool organization when they start letting guys like Wall Street in in hindsight wish you had that one back sure do you know I'm not going to disagree with that whoever wrote it I can justify it or attempt to or not even just about I can explain it which I've done on the show so I'm not GonNa Waste your time doing it again. People can find the types but nonetheless regardless of what the intentions were or the rationale was at the time clearly a bad choice to other bad choices or suggested here in the newsletter expect to talk to join the N. W. O. Under or another name and Bam Bam bigelow name has been brought up as well although there are reservations there since bigalow left the WWF primarily because he couldn't get along with Hall and thanks guys you you call it rumor Innuendo I just call it bullshit I mean kind of call it as I see it that is more fiction you know from Mr Meltzer so much of what he writes is fiction I don't need I don't even think most of it qualifies as rumor and Innuendo I just think he makes shit up never ever.

"And I'll I'll go back again to nick back one colon Kurt Hannah or I'll go to Nick Cohen almost anybody really there were times when whether it was next interviews promos if he will or whether it was the psychology and just flawless execution of Knicks storytelling whomever he was working with in the ring there was the moment there was those moments and I would say the X. Headache also fell into that category for me there were moments when I would constantly say to myself okay I know everything else is designed to entertain me and again keep in mind this is before we broke into the business I know all these other things are what they are but these two guys they really hate each other these guys really have an issue now obviously wasn't the case and I was reacting as a fan of my twenties and thirties and trying to figure out how this thing called professional wrestling worked and why it was so successful but isolate do those moments and was able to see the difference between silly mad dog was sean you know character kind of gimmicks or the crusher her or Ivan Putt skied the Polish bear whatever the fuck he was there was those kind of over the top character performances and then there was those performances that were designed to believe to to be so real and believable and the fact that they weren't over the top like the rest of the stories been playing out on a given show it made me realize that's how you keep this audience entertain them with the Gaga make them laugh do some crazy over the top shit but give them something that's feel so real it convinces the audience at home to go that might they actually hit each other harder than I think they're supposed to and interviews kind of getting a little bit personal I'm starting to believe this one in for me it was always nick twinkle there was able to deliver those kind of promos and in my mind I think that's when I started to realize that you know coming up with those bits reality and and peeling back the curtain as you suggested are appealing another layer the leading the audience in in a way that didn't it over spos- The business but it made the narrative more believable it when you start saying things that you typically wouldn't here and it traditional wrestling formula and it didn't always have to be big things but when you started hearing narrative that was like wait a minute that's there's some truth to that DDP does live down the street from American there were a lot of you know a lot of the boys were hard on page he was taken a lot of heat because he was getting a push andy was my friend and in typical locker room kind of you know jail food mentality you know psychology it'll all reason is getting a push because he's hanging out with Eric Bischoff and I understand why that perception existed it was a true he was getting the push because he deserves it and he was working as guts out as we found out later on he deserved that Bush but nonetheless during this period of time that little bit of rain reality in that promo or that narrative that you just described between Scott and and page and pages response about fuck you you know that's what all the boys are saying and I'm working on asa a bishop maybe by from that one getting the push that was all kind of narrative and commentary that was existing in the periphery of of television so it was just an easy way to take a little bit of truth weaving into this fictional story that we were telling and do it in a way that made the audience believe Sh at this end up bureau thing is real at least even if you look I'm not naive enough and I certainly wasn't ninety it's not even have to think that I'm going to convince the audience that everything I do is real that was my goal my goal was to make it really noth- breath that the audience would look at it and go wow this is really interesting much like I did when I was a fan growing up in Minnesota watching the backward coal Promo Knicks promos were real enough I wasn't naive enough I wasn't enough over mark to think that you know whatever his issues where we for example Yang Curt Hennig in Awa you know that's the storyline angle that I've talked about a lot yeah I wasn't naive enough at that time even though I was in the business I think these guys really it each other's guts but it was real enough to allow me to drop my guard as a viewer and lean into the story and the character in allow myself to buy into it and that's what I was trying to do at that time and that's why you would hear a lot of that behind the curtain kind of commentary in our stories is because I was trying to make real enough that the audience would go okay I'll I'm GONNA buy into this and they would allow themselves to believe it I didn't have to convince them I just had to give them a reason to I had to give them a reason to allow themselves to buy into the story what are the other things that I was going to be doing on. TV is start a little bit of a beef with Larry's of Bisco and fiscal was somebody that Scott's always have soft spot for so Bisco took care took care of him in the Awa back in the day when Scott was first break in and he was always forever grateful and he gave him a lot of good advice like that it may have been some viscose idea to have Scott come through the crowd when he made his debut in the N. W. O. so maybe it makes sense if you understand the relationship but it is a little odd if you don't then all of a sudden Scott Hall sort of Josh Jackson with one of the announcers is this something Scott brings to you and says hey I'd like to help get the sky over and repay the favor or how does that interaction exist on TV it certainly didn't happen that way I mean Scott didn't especially going to keep in mind when I pick Scott up back up just a little bit you know to Scott's first appearance going back to one of the things we were talking about a little while ago I was a little not a little I was very aware of Scott's reputation was very concerned that for the first time since I've been in she w the the backstage environment was look I it sounds like it was Disney and everybody was high fiving each other as they walked past each other there were still issues and some guys did like other guys there's always that you know is there is you know probably ups or the federal government or any major retailer do you have a large group of people working together you're always going to have some kind of chemistry issues but overall the the general feeling backstage was very positive I was because I was concerned about the disruption to that in the risk that I was taking by bringing Scott in I told Scott you know when he flew in Atlanta because Scott's first appearance was in Macon Georgia and this one I do remember so vividly because it happened to be my birthday and I pick Scott up at at his hotel I think you've seen at the radisson or Marriott or somewhere in Atlanta site in south south side of Atlanta so I picked him up on my way to make an simply because I wanted to have conversation with him face to face about my concerns not in front of a bunch of other people on that with his agent or attorney or anything like that I just wanted him tonight to be able to have a conversation for an hour and a half or two hours while we were driving to make and we had that conversation when Scott came in as I said earlier in this show he Scott was very well aware of the baggage he was bringing to the table and Scott was his absolute best behavior as a professional he he was anxious to do whatever was asked of him he didn't challenge question he didn't come over the top of ways of making anything better at least not at this point he was just there to do what was asked of him so to be really specific about your question no he you did not in it it just wouldn't have been the right time for him to to suggest something like that because of the nature of the timing and everything else that was going on with him coming in he was simply you know what do you want me to do boss in mind how how can I make this work that was his prevailing is overall attitude he didn't come in I say hey we're gonna do this Larry's Bisco over because he's my buddy I mean that would've been really over the top for him to do that at that point in its this wasn't whereas had resent so how that idea evolved it was a natural one Scott in Bisco had not only we're friends they were but there were friends because they had a lotta history together and going back to the AWA so it was a natural thing to do I can't tell you who's idea was it was probably Scott and I talking together you know before the show and in talking about his his Larry was an announcer and we had to you know sure the reactions right at type of thing so who knows how the the idea came up but it was a natural to me because of the previous history well it is interesting at the time because I didn't know the backstory so I thought it was a little different but it becomes very apparent just one month after the outsiders win the tag titles that there's not really a lot for them to do they had.

Israel on is tell everybody about your ear buds and what you have Mississippi think about there's two things I love about one is they fit in my ears so well and they're so comfortable now a little bit of a little bit of personal information here I don't talk about it all the time because it's not something that's worthy of talking about but I I wrestled from the time I was in probably seventh grade all the way in into my freshman sophomore your college I wrestled in college but I was wrestling eighty you Freestyle and Greco Roman and I I loved wrestling I wasn't very good at it I would on a good day I was average or slightly better than average but I I didn't do it because I was graded I did it because I loved it it was I just looked at but as a result of that I've got a little bit of a cauliflower year on my right ear now it's not noticeable it's like you know guys that have been doing it their whole lives in in you know professionally in that type of thing or college but nonetheless I developed a little bit of a cauliflower ear and most ear buds that I've tried it just you know they'll be okay for a half hour twenty minutes somewhere in an area and then I just find myself they're uncomfortable because they just don't quite fit the shape of my ear on my right ear I left ears fine but these recon floods I put them in in the only problem is have with him is I forget that they're in that's how comfortable they are they literally are so comfortable I forget that there that's one thing I really love about the other thing is mention you use them for phone calls as you as do I I don't always have them in you know so he can't not all my calls around them but what I know I have an important call where I need especially if it's a conference call where there are different people talking and some people are on skype and some people are on headlines and some people are mobile phones oftentimes self-services ingrate an even though I've got a great

plant this feel sorta I left field are you in and Scott trying to do your buddy a solid or what's the rationale with sort given everybody peek behind the curtain like this well is the nature of the way we just talked about how stories revolving and we wanted reality the and we wanted to blur those lines between you know comic book type of storytelling which had been the norm throughout the eighties in in early nineties and tell stories that I don't WanNa say confused the audio confused them in the right way meaning the goal was always to achieve what I firmly believed was the sweet spot in professional wrestling before title wrestling for and I would tell her that you know in my opinion when it's done right meaning when the stories are presented the right way the purest form of marketing that there is and when I say when it's done right my opinion then and now we're talking about you know early the eighties mid eighties when my wife would look at me shake my head and asked me why was watching wrestling even back then I would see those moments when I was watching a match and there would be moments when.

"Look yes because I do leave all things have to change they have to evolve with the culture you know if you go back and you look at the movie industry anti heroes were becoming a really big thing during the period of time the audience was the movie going audience a television audience general was kind of tired of the six million dollar man baby face care later on television or you know the traditional you know hero in a feature film and and the and the the journey that hero would generally face in a movie and they were embracing Anti Heroes Flawed Anti Heroes but anti heroes nonetheless and we happen to me again I I don't WanNa make myself sound smarter than I am about things is certainly back in ninety six because I was learning on the job as I said before but it was coincidental that while the audience is taste in expectations in terms of characters and entertainment was evolving into more of an anti hero kind of a journey we just happen to be creating an anti hero cast of characters that really really act and again I I'd like to try to convince everybody that that was my plan all along and I was that smart or had that much vision it wasn't that it was said this before you know it was a perfect storm it sometimes the best ideas in the world are the victim bad timing and sometimes some of the worst ideas in the world get the benefit from good timing and this was a case where we had a great idea at the right time the audience was looking for it and we just happened to be able to give it to them and I do think it was for the better to answer your question yes because if we had stuck just imagine this for moment if for whatever reason if somebody would have come to me Eric this is a bad idea you're in billy they did it to varying degrees people did have this station with me after the Hulk Hogan turn this is a bad idea you know the baby faces are GonNa have a hard time getting over there's no psychology this is completely upended the way we do business was the general theme of the day shortly after Hogan turned heel had I had I said Jack God you're right let's do this anymore and shut down the end wwl and gone back to the Hero baby-faced formula from the seventies and eighties in the early nineties or mid nineties at this point I don't I'm not sure that the business would be where it is today through would not have been again I'm not patting myself on the back just facts are fucking facts you know like I said no Brag just fact by the t shirt you know had we not done what we did with the N. WWL had we not changed the way we told stories and had we not fulfilled in evolving audience expectation for a different type of character provide that to them in the form of the bureau there would not have been an attitude era there would not have been a DX you probably wouldn't have seen Mike Tyson a Steve Austin in a storyline with with you know Mr McMahon so many things that we did in ninety six it changed the way storytelling was going to be executed for the next twenty years and somebody they are you know if you talk to a traditionalist you know some old timer I guess chronologically I'd probably fall under that category but from producers point of view storytellers point of view. I'm I'm exactly the opposite of that I truly recognize how much audience taste evolves whether it's a professional wrestling whether it's television whether it's in movies whether it's in music you know the audiences taste and expectations constantly evolve and if you don't evolve with it you become a victim of it firmly believed that so Oh yeah the end of your ruin the business forever well I don't think so I don't think the wwe would be a public company today had it not been for the boom period that was created as a result of Scott Hall and Kevin Nash Coming over to to wwe the Hulk Hogan turn on the subsequent N. w. o. and the the influence analyst show is about Scott it's not about just the N. W. O. But I think without the influence in the impetus did Scott Hall early originally he was he was the cat that launched it you know what I mean in the rest of it was just great casting but had it not been for all of that in the in the way storytelling evolve during the period of time I don't think you'd be looking at the wrestling landscape today the same way you talked a little bit about the anti hero thing and you're doing this in advance of Stone Cold Steve Austin becoming a thing and his meteoric rise as the anti hero but you said you know that that was taking place in pop culture we didn't talk about this hell Tom I'm sort of pushing out on a limb here did you intentionally look to other aspects of entertainment and say hey I need an anti hero and Scott Hall of the guy or did the creative just sorta making the anti hero and then you realize what you had once you were going it was the latter it was the latter you look at like I said earlier I knew that this invasion storyline that I had in mind it was perfect for Scott Hall and perfect for Kevin Nash because the premise of that storyline once again was very simple these were two guys who had previously been in DC W who didn't feel like they were treated fairly early and I'm talking about a storyline characterized and and there was some truth to to which is one of the reasons why became so crystal clear as an opportunity in my head I know it was true but two guys who felt like WCW didn't treat them the way they should have been treated and give them what they deserve when they were there they went to wwf became big stars and now they were coming back to take root vetch that was the most simplistic explanation if you will of the idea that I had in my head now it evolved into something much bigger than not as time went on but that was the idea in I didn't I wanted Scott I do here's what I knew I wanted I knew I wanted to reality I knew and I I don't think I gave much considering I didn't look at another character in the movie industry for example or another television Star and go oh Scott Hall could be that Guy Right but I knew in general I wanted that type of anarchy in the company I wanted create that buzz and controversy I wanted to create the perception that there was a war going on within my own company and I wanted that perception to manifest it in storyline that I hoped would last couple months clearly last couple years several years probably a year or two too long and many people's estimations including my own by the way but nonetheless that to answer question I didn't Bay Scott Hall's character in somebody else's I just knew that you know if you look at a lot of the you know the feature films I can't remember the mall supplement head but you know even the terminator movies you know Schwarzenegger that was kind of an anti hero and we've subsequently we've seen a lot more of that but I think if there was anything that I was influenced by is odd is this is going to sound it was probably music and just the general feeling that there was the anti hero and we'll say intake would be wrong wrong way to say music but the hip hop is really becoming popular at that time it had been popular but it was really becoming more and more popular in the the traditional bubble gum kind of way packaging music was no longer resonating in the music business was dying because of it so I don't WanNa say I looked to the hip hop industry or the music industry for inspiration but I was very well aware of it and now having a guy like Scott Hall coming in to help create this direction within my own company it all made sense to me intuitively if that makes sense well I mean music is a big part of the way a person feels and it sort of L. can set the tone or the mood I mean people listen to music to whether happier when they're sad or whatever and if you want it to sound as good as possible you gotta go to rake John Man.

"I don't know that you and I have ever discussed conversation like that ever happening in WCW did those conversations happen and if so who would have been the person having the conversation feel was it that night in July or you felt like not just in return Hogan but man got the right guys and Scott Hall and Kevin Nash It was actually before that truth be told when we were at the Disney Mgm tapings in June shortly after Scott and Kevin both revealed themselves and it was I just kind of again I'm a measuring my words here and I'm hesitating because it's it's just so easy to put oneself over when you're looking back at things and say I knew this win and I had this instinct and most of the time it's not true but I did feel like with Scott and Kevin and with the potential of Hulk Hogan attorney that the chemistry is odd as it was because they didn't really wasn't a casting when you're looking at three guys you wouldn't see on paper that wouldn't look like it would be as as great as it was but I kinda had the sense early on that things were going to work out but it was it was a gut feeling it wasn't anything tangible who wasn't sation it wasn't anything other than instinct and just a feeling we've talked about the early stuff including fall brawl that would just recently did a Halloween havoc is pretty notable because Scott Hall wins his first tag title here in WCW with his Buddy Kevin Nash from the Harlem heat great match three and a quarter stars at this point Halloween havoc ninety six you've got everybody with the Goldman when you've got hulk Hogan with the world title and now the outsiders are the tag champs what's the what's the theory what's the model to telling a story with bad guys collecting all the bells like this I mean if you go back and look at our programming during that period of time we were clearly setting the the tone for a of N W O insurrection within the WW organization. And we're I don't WanNa say what word trying to build two brands because that makes it sound like a lot more thought was given to that idea at this time now we I gave I gave that idea a lot of thought subsequent to October of ninety six when we started really building momentum and ninety seven it became apparent to me that okay the opportunity to have who separate brands under one roof has definitely here with the end wwl but in ninety six I wasn't thinking that big as far as splitting the two factions up so to speak are the two key brands up but I was thinking I I think it's evidenced in the content that go back and from the wwe network and I encourage you to do it because it was a fascinating time in terms of professional wrestling sports entertainment whatever you choose to call it a storytelling changed to your point here were especially after the July bash at the beach pay per view in the Hulk Hogan term iron is sexy successful as that was born out of that where those very creative in new vignettes that we would do with the end yeah well and I think that was one of the things that really got them over but it got them over by making them cool those those vignettes were so nick and nothing like that had ever been done before and they were so well done that it we started noticing here's these fuels that was the original storyline is that these guys were all going to be heels and it was going to be the WCW baby faces against the end wwl heels but what happened during that period of time is the fans started really embracing the wwl because they were so flipping cool and that changed storytelling it changes a lot of things not only in WCW but I think it wwf at the time all of a sudden that change in the traditional formula the traditional cycle achieved people would always do you know previous to this point for a baby faced to get over we throw that rulebook the window and we were writing a new one and it it became a real challenge and I think we may have touched on this before because the baby fae side of that equation at that time was having a real hard time making their shit work because the N. W. O. was so over in what was a really strange and again I I encourage you to go back and Watson with this weather it's Nitro or some of the pay per views on the wwe network you can see that any any audience's reactions to things weren't getting that Traditional Pavlovian kind of baby face response and he'll response it was beginning to get more it was mixed I and you'd have people you know if in the right situation whether it was Kevin Astros got holler Hogan you know getting us heat on a WCW baby get some of that he'll reaction or the baby faces would be reacting to it the way you would expect they would but you'd also have half of the arena you know in their ended up Yoshi there's going fuck yeah let's do this and that really really a fundamentally changed I think storytelling in professional sling in a very substantial way do you think it's.

"It was important that Scott came in with that renegade type of character that didn't come in the normal channels meeting I didn't want him coming through the backstage area I didn't want it to be announced that Scott Hall was now joining WCW and leaving wwe. then what all that online Hoopla you know what I mean I wanted him to come in as a surprise I wanted him to come in through the crowd I wanted him to come in not dress like a wrestling character per se but like a real person and I knew that I wasn't going to come up with a gimmick name forum so Scott I did talk about a lot of those things I know aside barn here but we've we've done a lot of shows with Bruce Prichard Jim Ross and we've heard a lot about weight management you know that they they wanted to lose weight and they WANNA shuttlers why they wanted Yoko vader to lose weight or they wanted this guy put on some more muscle or whatever the talent I mean I never had a conversation with anyone out besides Vanni the put down the doors he's yeah other than that but you know I mean when I look Scott Hall's case clearly no need for that type of conversation Kevin Ashes and most of the people that I brought in from WWF whether it be randy savage or whomever they were all in pretty decent shape or their characters didn't require that they you know look shredded and that type of thing so I to answer the question very simply I never really had those types of conversations with anybody that I can recall well whether you're an athlete a weekend warrior or someone looking to get back into the game I finding a program that pushes you to grow physical and mentally might seem out of reach most fitness APPs focus on weightlifting workouts or six pack absolute well wellness APPs just don't challenge enough so here's the solution inspired by the training techniques and lifestyle habits of big wave Surfer Laird Hamilton then former pro athlete Gabrielle Reece X.

"To the industry he advocated realized that you know whatever went on a wwf was probably baggage that he couldn't afford to keep carrying around and he had to kind of re reinvent himself to a degree professionally but he came in the sky was easy to do with you know he was just it's all I really remember is the whole thing was very easy although I was a little nervous about you know what would happen when he got into the locker but it never became an issue at least not not not immediately anyway just to clarify you did all of your Mary conversations and whatnot with Scott Hall I in advance of Kevin Nash Right Yeah I mean and they came one right after another but it wasn't until I think Scott was actually signed or damn close to it before we started having a conversation with Kevin I asked because well I don't know probably going to get you fired up here in February of ninety six McMahon is going to be The observer complaining about contract tampering and he's going to bring up diesel the bush-whackers and Jean Pierre Lafitte the the guy we know as pc oh now supposedly vince is climbing the diesel was offered a three year deal and these will have been telling people that it was in the seven hundred fifty thousand dollar range others would say it was four fifty and this fabulous this is in advance of razor coming over but what stuck out about out this report was quote the Bushwacker were definitely offered one hundred twenty thousand dollars per year a few months back each I but all the rarely use they're still under contract of the WWF which I don't believe WCW actually knew when they went to McMahon to get out of their contract he refused to let them out citing he's in arresting war did you offer the bourgeois here's a Gig I did not know I'm I'm not going to say the warranty offered one keeping and you know I didn't I wasn't signing people I wasn't initiating conversations with talent you know by the I'm an acquisition got to me generally it was through somebody else on our staff whether it was Kevin Sullivan or does sears one of the boys or whomever but officially is in terms of offering anybody a deal that didn't come from me I'm not suggesting that someone else whether it be Kevin Sullivan Archer Taylor Mike Grant summer whomever didn't have a conversation with bush-whackers and didn't suggest a what if we could get you this amount of money but in terms of an offer a written offer or even conversation because I've never had a conversation with bush-whackers in fact I the first conversation I had with Luke was about two years ago when I saw him you know at a rest like a VAT and he's now running to Jim in clearwater Florida that my son works out at and subsequently we've had a number of conversations but back at this period of time that you're discussing ninety six I hadn't up until that point even spoken words who to either one of the bourgeois cours when you met him did he walk over and looking for him You know I was disappointed was ready for it yeah can you imagine trying to get away with that Gimmick in two thousand nineteen where you have babyface wrestlers coming to the ring licking children yeah that wouldn't fly Tom I'm not a big fan of you know the the overly political correct nature of Art Society in general but you know supports entertainment in particular because look this is a in some cases it's Oh you know fantastic athleticism great storytelling and sometimes it's just over the top kind of characters parodies and it you know a lot of things but the politically correct nature of our culture and our society is really kind of put a limit on lot of the things you can do to entertain the audience but I think in this case as far as looking fans and shit like that yeah it was probably a good thing that that our culture has kind of evolved from that kind of entertainment yeah fair say it's also in the same report sort that the interest in diesel supposedly from the WCW side quote from all sources this has basically been confirmed that Hogan wants to bring him in as a heel worker program with him you ever having preliminary conversations with Hall because I don't know you know you might WanNa ramp here but that does sorta lineup with Hogan had made all of his money working with giants so if you've got some big nasty main giant dude I mean that's sort of checks out wasn't it now it does listen I mean I see how it could I'm not I'm not suggesting that the general formula that you've described Cogan isn't her wasn't true at the time because generally yes that was true but the exact opposite is true in that I think all Wanna speak for him but I think his what I remember was he was very very Concerned about bringing Scott in antibody rigging Kevin Nash now keeping all kept a lot closer ear to the ground on the backstage wwe drama in you just had a lot more context he had people calling you know volunteering things and talking to them all the time because he he was friendly with a lot of different people who were still in Wwe so different perspective and probably a clearer perspective I might say on some of the drama and the and the chemistry issues personality issues backstage than I did and when I let you know found out I'm not sure if I told him regis read about or heard about you know through the normal channels I don't wasn't a big deal I feel like I had to sit down and get permission or anything like that but when he found out about it he was less than enthusiastic I'm not saying he tried to bury them uh-huh him being Kevin Ashman suggesting Hawke threw a fit or it was angry but he he definitely expressed concern and and my impression at the time was it helped didn't think it was a great idea he expressed concern because he had heard about the drama of the Click and that Cat in May have been the de facto leader again I I'd be putting words or thoughts in a hoax mine by suggesting that was the case I'm not exactly sure what his concerns were but I'm guessing because he had a much clearer picture or at least had a more more continual are continuous kind of conversation with people about things that were going on backstage wwf at the time that I did that quite possibly could have been what is concerned I'm you know we never we never got into it that much depth who I just the reaction was Oh man really be careful with those guys type of thing as opposed to join a line in the sand or pitching a fit I I kinda wonder when you are signing big talent like this we were involved in the Scott Hall piece because he was a bigger talent what do you discuss as far as expectations beyond a here's the number days and here's the amount of money is there conversation about we need you to look a certain way does that apply to men women Newcomer ars vets did it did it matter at all the Scots case because you know when Scott became available in at the point in time when the negotiations had gotten to a point where in my mind at least I would even know the deal wasn't and I was confident that it was going to be that's when you know that kind of foggy idea of what became the N. wwl that I've been walking around with for about a year for two years that's when I went we'll wait a minute Scott's available by this point you know before Scott came in knew that I believed that we're going to deal with with Kevin now I'm thinking okay now there's a way to kind of create this in at the time I don't want to say I knew the idea I had the idea in my head was just a an etch a sketch outlining of idea I didn't have a name for it you know when Scott came in I have this image in my head of okay we're GONNA call it the N. wwl and we're GonNa do these really out of the box types of promos and we're going to do all this crazy you know Eh backstage kind of side and have that in my head I will what the idea wasn't that fleshed out yet but it was flushed out enough that I knew was Scott coming in and Calvin coming in shortly thereafter that.

GDP is GDP had relationship with Scott I think went went way back to their days in Florida together and mutual friendship with us you roads and you know APN and Scott were very well connected and it was DP that came to me and said Hey Scott's wants to know if there's any interest you know in an incoming here at it because it was a huge fan of his in the Awa certainly was aware of what he had done. WWF as Razor Ramon character and I've I felt like he would compliment our roster so it was a very easy and pretty quick discussion the Goshi aviation I don't recall there being any substantive issues at all it wasn't One of those negotiations were Scott was looking for a lot more money or or any of that it was quite seamless in terms of the negotiation I got the impression that Scott Phil now this is just an impression in part of this looking back right it's it's easy when I look back you know twenty seven years ago to say oh this is the way I felt back then but a I I tend not to do that because you know what when you look back twenty years on a situation your feelings subsequent to that situation thank you know sometimes evolve and change and in shade the way you actually do remember them but I I remember at the time because I had heard about Scott's reputation Scott came with a certain amount of baggage I was well aware of that in a win in ninety six when he was coming in and I talked to Scott about that briefly he had a reputation of being kind of a shit disturb or backstage and be hard to manage backstage and by Nineteen ninety-six believe it or not We were feeling the the the attitude in the the environment in backstage WCW as well as in the front office a ww even though this was pre ended well was still pretty high we were we're making good progress things are moving in the right direction there was a pretty good Komo camaraderie you know in particularly compared to what I've seen in ninety two ninety three hundred ninety four so I wasn't real excited about bringing in one that was going to be disruptive and Scott Nigeria have a conversation about that in enduring that conversation I got the impression that Scott knew he he needed to change his.

I did not I was fan you know before he got into the wrestling business before I started working for Verne and nineteen eighty-seven I believe so I was a you know as I think happens the people you know when you're really young you know you get into professional wrestling like when you're you know adolescents ages eight ten twelve years old and then as you get interested in other things as you begin to mature and your lifestyle changes you kind of lose touch a little bit but I kind of found myself getting back into you know being interested in wrestling again around the time that Scott Hall was really making a name for himself along with Curt Hennig in the Awa but to answer your question we never crossed paths professionally but became very familiar with Scott as talent in the Awa during his time Minneapolis and his time working for Verne it's sort of interesting because Scott Hall comes in the WCW Nineteen ninety-one as do you ski we'll get a tryout at a dark match television taping he's GonNa be in as the diamond stood and he's going to be managed by Diamond Alston age which is sort of interesting that all these years later those guys are still associated meltzer would right he worked like Scott Hall although we did nice version of the power bombers the finisher it's got a good reaction and then fast forward a couple of weeks and he's going to be back on the shows in dark matches and then finally the at the end of the month he would make his television debut and Diamond Dallas page just gonNA find him a valet from the Audience Wendy you remember I saying the diamond stud character not until I got into to WCW really I hadn't been watching a lot of WCW before I was interviewed to to t to join them so obviously knew Scott Hall but I wasn't familiar at all with the diamond stud character until I got to WCW I think you actually debut a couple of months after Scott in like July of Nineteen ninety-one and he's going to be working in the mid card matches with with Catholics Tom's zinc he's not quite the superstar that we're GONNA come to know Scott Hall to be the do you have any interaction with him I know you've always joked you were a c squat announcer in ninety one but did you have any interaction with Scott Ninety one since you both were Minnesota boys a little bit really at Florida Guy all the way through but because he had spent a lot of time in Minneapolis and we we just knew a lot of the same people we weren't friendly I mean we were friendly we close friends I think I probably went out after the shows with Scott you know maybe once or twice in a group you know not individually not just he and I but his a part of a group we probably sat down and a couple of cocktails after the show together you know a handful of times but it didn't really didn't interact a lot a one on one kind of way well he probably needed all the backup he could get I mean he's pushing pretty prominently forgot who debuts may he's in sort of the main attraction for October Halloween havoc pay per use the chamber of horrors in Chattanooga where famously Abdul the butcher was electrocuted is that a career highlight for you eric the electrocution of Abdul the butcher in on a career highlight it does stand out vividly in my in my mind is one of the more interesting things I had seen up until that point coming from the AWA where even with a lot of the look Kinda gimmicky tight matches Verne was putting on towards the end of the gate of you weigh the team challenge series and things like that this was way over the top to me I had never seen anything like it never heard of it anything like it was dusty Rhodes thing you know dusty was was excited about it and I was just at that point really beginning to get to know and dusty was say what you want about dusty and a lot of people look back at dusty now and of course home in very high regard which he obviously deserves but dusty did a lot of fishes and came up with a lot of ideas that were controversial at the time and all didn't always have a lot of support but what I really admired about dusty and grew to really I don't WanNa say he mentored me in any way shape or form but you know one of the things that I I realized guy like dusty is that you're going to come up with ideas that are out of the box that are big that are crazy on the surface take oh my God and some of them are going to work and some of them aren't in my opinion this was one of those kind of out of the box ideas way over the top does he had a vision for it and I have a hard time saying it was a great success or even a moderate success but it was definite only unique you know we're still talking about it all these years later absolutely and something we're GonNa be talking about years later is the calming comfort weighted blanket man we have been on board with this for so long and I know that you and Mrs B. can't live without this thing tell everybody what you like best about the weighted blanket from common her be before I do that I have to say I'm a cynic when it comes to things that are marketed in merchandise typically I've found online in particular that will you know you see a lot of products especially clothing products and pet products and things like that that look really appealing Oh you know online and then when you get the product home it's kind of not so much right and I've just because we're inundated with so much of that type of average ising and marketing for the most part I'm I'm still old school in the sense that I don't really get excited about anything that I can't handle Home Comfort before I got to sample the product it was like a weighted blanket the hell another gimmick yes you know because I can't get excited about the things I haven't tried and really believe in and I tried it out still kind of cynical just didn't understand The reasons why a weighted blanket would necessarily make me sleep better and at the time this was last summer now when I you know I tried the product I was I don't WanNa say insomniac but I was I was up every couple hours tossing and turning and not being able to get comfortable and just waking myself up but I'd St for an hour or so or to go back to sleep and you know Winston repeat throughout the night and that force I you know night that I had that blanket I I slept all the way through the night I didn't
