He was really, oh, he was biting for the. He was going for it all, man. The guy with the red shirt and the glass is the old guy. Yeah. Oh, wow, okay. On the chair, staying as hard badly. They can help them lower this snake. He's something else. Listen, ladies and gentlemen, I give you exhibit a of why you have the moniker voice of wrestling. That was all by yourself. And you want to talk about excitement for everything that just happened, making it feel like a surprise, taking you on that journey, that emotional connection. Let's listen to what you and cowboy had to say. Was designed to instincts career. Luckily, that did not happen. We are very lucky. You know when a guy like sting or any other of our professional athletes are injured, we want to find out just how bad that injury is and you take the precautions because that was a neck injury. And so you make sure that he's carried out in the proper manner to not add our aggravate or make the injury worse. And I think WCW had handled everything up to that point very well. The officials were on the scene they were trying to restore order. But there was a wild card in the deck. Something nobody could have ever anticipated. Jake the snake and he is appearance. And of course sting is all right, comparatively. All pro athletes go with pain. As Bobby lane, the great Hall of Fame quarterback said, you've got to play with pain in the NFL in any major sport you go out. An ordinary person can take time off from their job. But an athlete goes and sting is back and he's going, but the sad thing is that cost him his rematch with big van Vader. But

"He didn't accomplish this in WCW. But in your estimation, do you think he would have been a great WCW World champion? Oh, yeah, I think, you know, it sounds on placating him because I love him so much. That I believe you do well at any role aside. He put him on the field and gave him a Jersey, put him in the game and let him play. And that would include being the WCW champion. A cactus Jack driven title run would have been extremely entertaining. And the promos themselves would have been worth quote unquote the price of admission. So yeah, I wish we could have gotten that opportunity, but you know, politically speaking, the look and all of the bullshit that people are, they make up excuses when something is not their idea. That's the worst thing about pro wrestling. Sometimes the decision makers that are doing the booking, if a certain topic is not their idea, you're never going to get it through. So that's just terrible. Unfortunate. And it shouldn't happen that way, but it does more often than not. The Mick would have made a great WCW champion. It kind of feels like as we wrap up this portion of the episode that cactus during his run. That time period in WCW was the perfect epitome of the company at the time when you think about it. He was a guy who's willing to do anything wrestling wise with his push. He was good on the mic, we just heard an example of that. He can work, but it just never got going for him there. Yeah, well, again, it's not politics. Let's have the eye on. And then apparently inadvertently, and not his fault. Was on the wrong side of the aisle more often than not. Just the standpoint, somebody didn't like his look. Or something he may have said out of humor or something that took him the wrong way. And they also saw a guy working harder than them. Doing all he can to get over and I'm not so sure about the roster could say the same thing honestly. Isn't it something that could just be a comment or a conversation or something that just went one or I once or twice and that's all it takes. It's just like in the regular business world too with the wrong leader or the wrong person the one over you. And that's all it takes to convert it for a little bit unfortunately. You know? Yeah, that's what it is. It is. It's not changed. I got the business in 1974. It was that way then. Here we are at 2022. It's that way now. Well, JR, let's get into some of the fan questions we have a few this week and we'll start with Francis Reyes, and he said, JR, do you think Mick was ahead of his time in WCW? I don't know what way Harvard answer yes or no on that deal. Head of his time in what respect. He wasn't he had his moose there that he did where it ended up this hip or concrete, a lot, but I don't know if he was ahead of his time or not. Maybe his style, you know, his what he did from a risk, and they weren't used to accustom to seeing someone with maybe a hardcore styling or something like that. That might be applicable. But to say he was a way ahead of his time. You know, I don't know if I could go that far. Okay. Rains and macintyre, obviously big WWE fan, chimes in and says, was there ever a plan to make cactus Jack WCW champion? Well, if it was discussed, it wasn't discussed very long. Okay. Look, personality. You know, I never understood that, but that's what it was. So they had been discussed probably was. But not seriously, not for very long time. Batman forever is up next, and he says, do you think sting was cactus Jack's greatest rival in WCW? I know we were just covering Vader too, but do you think sting would happen to be as great as rival? Well, he certainly with the top three or four, no doubt. Again, they had some classic matches. That's a fair question. And my answer would be a fair answer. Top three at least. Okay. Dru and LA, the wealthy industrialist asks, does WCW get enough credit for being the first promotion to bring hardcore style wrestling to mainstream audience? Oh, Tom was, I don't know. It would be close. But Mick was the hardest of the hardcore. And guys saw what was getting over, so some of them tried it, so maybe maybe so. But we weren't the only one doing it. It was doing it. And no crazy things. And me and Ivan, I'm kidding. I've been filming with bubba. I know you are. And I have had a great rapport. I used to bullshit about his calves. I always got great cash development. You used to like to show them off guarantee. He would flex those puppies. Oh, yeah. Well, it was our impression. Yeah. So I'd always tell her said, Bo, goddamn. You gotta get back to the gym for cash or shrinking. You look at you like you're serious for two seconds. But anyway, I'd like to get over here. He does a good job. David Rick and all the crew there busted open radio SiriusXM. I wish I would say regular viewer, but now that I understand how to retrieve and the archive shows and things like that, I'm a little bit more accessible to it. I'm learning more at tentacle sense than I heretofore had. Okay. And it's just a list. It's good to hear what the fans are thinking. And I enjoy that. So that's awesome. Hey, listen. When we talk about hardcore style and all kinds of fun stuff come up, we have a lot of fun stuff coming up right here. It's a big summer, Jim here on grilling JR. And next week, you're going to do a watch along of raw is war from June 9th, 1997 in Hartford. It's the night after the king of the ring, which saw hunter erst elmsley win the tournament. That's right, Triple H, but what's most notable about that show is what happened before the show when bretton Sean got into it. We're here to find out all the dirt from you, JR. And we'll call it a wrestling match of sorts backstage. I see your head shaking. I love it. And from there, it's go back to WCW. It's that beach blast 92, 1992, we promised you one of the first major shows of the Bill watts era. You got the steiners against two of your favorites. Terry Gordy and Steve Williams. Doctor death in the main event, man. That's going to be a fun one. You know, we talk about the golden tag match like the bucks and the hardee's, for example. Yeah. That we've recently featured and.

"Spend time with gene a little bit with Bobby spent a lot of time with Mike to me. You know, we would sort of talk through stuff. Just because I think we were both at the same mind about things like, oh, we're going to get you some liger. Let's really try to do something special with them. And then you turn around and he's getting waffled with a tequila bottle by whovian. You know, the writers are asking me if I think they're racist. And I'm like, well, not you, but that's sort of a sort of a stereotypical finish. It's pretty racist because then I'm sure what they would do after that is then liger would hit hoovy with a bowl of rice. Oh, stop. Well, we're not even being that's what they would do. Stop. I remember every time who would come to the ring, they'd have ring music that sounded like a mariachi. And then every time one of the Japanese guys came that have kind of the Japanese harps and I'm like, why are we doing this? They can listen to music. Rock music too, you know? Yeah, I was gonna say gosh, you know, Japan is Japan covets jazz and classic rock. Why don't we go that direction? Completely completely, right? Last few things I could talk to you for two hours, bob, but we wanted to just kind of delve into something, but first of all, what was your favorite angle that you were involved in when you were working with WCW? Hey, you had some input to that's a question number. I got three. So that's question number one. All right, question one. Well, I would say the match with Chris Ben won and Bret Hart in Kansas City. You know, sort of the tribute to Owen and sort of reminding people that, yes, professional wrestling can be like this. You know, and to go to go across three segments at that time was unheard of. That was just that that really made me feel good. I was like, wow, they're listening a little bit. Everybody's got this great idea and we're trying to expand it within a reason and the way that it played was so good. You know, you know, people loved that match and, you know, like you said, it was probably one of the strongest things from that era passed that. I remember there's one there was one Wednesday where we were doing a booking meeting and I don't know if I had too much coffee or what. But I just, I think Vince Russo was like, we got to break up the nitro girls. We got to get them, you know, we got to do some. So I just started coming up with all of these crazy scenarios of fighting in the penalty box, fighting up in the VIP box, blah, blah, blah. And I think one of the jokes I said is you could do something on a pole. How about Viagra on a pool? I love that. I love it. You're on fire. I'm like, are you came up with that? I'm like, you got to be kidding. I'm just making shit up. Right up Russo's alley, man. You can now take claim for creating a pole match. It was something I might have thrown something like that out. I'm not taking credit for that. I'll take the blame. Yeah, the blame, right? Besides the Chris and Brett, what was your favorite match that you ever saw when you were working in WCW or around that time frame? There was a series of matches again, I think it was like February March of 2000, I had mentioned vampiro and I felt like he could be he could be moved up and I'd say that to Kevin and Kevin will say, yeah, but his stuff looks his stuff is sort of like, you know, flimsy floppy. I said, well, what can we do? He says, I'll put him in a three match series with Finley. And that'll tighten that up. And so, you know, watching watching those matches watching the evolution, you know, in a matter of weeks, from vampiro did do a lot of wild kicks and maybe lucha oriented stuff. And then, you know, when fit got hold of him, it was like, okay, we're going to wrestle like this. And we're going to lay it in and we're going to work tight and snug and you're going to get it. And he got it really quick. And it was just amazing for me, not ever being having any aspirations to be a wrestler just watching that kind of development. In such a short period of time, was really cool. Just to see how somebody could show someone with more experience can show someone with a little bit less experience some of the tricks and they could pick it up so quickly. That's always been something that I really enjoy about wrestling. Yeah, and that's so important and professional wrestling. I mean, we think about ECW. I mean, Terry funk was the reason, right? Sure. So when people, when people who have a lot of experience or giving like that, and you see, you see someone be the recipient of that giving and their game gets up immediately. That's really cool. It's really, really great. It's like, you know, being in a band and you finally get to work with a great producer. Right. Or great musicians and all of a sudden they just say that one little thing. Yeah. You know? And nobody would ever notice it, but then as soon as you're like, aha. So it was cool for me to see that happen in pro wrestling with somebody that I was lobbying for. So that was nice. And lastly, for you, like we mentioned, I mean, you've got so much music history and being legit, one of the pioneers of kind of, I guess I call it the alternative kind of early 90s rock scene. And Nirvana constantly quoted husker due as an influence. Did you ever have any interactions with, I know you just toured with Foo Fighters? Did you guys ever do any shows with Nirvana and the interactions with Kurt Cobain and the insight as to what he was like as a guy? I brushed up with them a little bit in the summer of 91 just as never when I was about to come out. So it's funny I used to play a lot in the 80s and current would come to the shows at the hub ballroom in Seattle and he was a big fan of the band I think it was when they were shopping the demos for never mind looking for a producer. I was in consideration for that to produce how to produce a record and fortunately I didn't because Butch Vega is such an amazing producer and everything went exactly as it was supposed to so I'm glad that did not work for me because it works for all of us. Funny story about Seattle and your friend Duff mckagan. Yeah. So first time who scares one out to Seattle in 81, we're staying at this sort of group house. A lot of bunkers and they were getting like fanzines and stuff together. And I think it was Saturday afternoon and there was one TV and I think Duff was the kid that wanted to watch MTV and we were like, uh uh, wrestling song. Get out of the way. So ask them. No, no, no, no. No MTV, dude. We're watching wrestling. Even though it was like, it was like Dutch savage and whoever up in Seattle at the time. Yeah, Portland wrestling. Yeah, Donna and Portland and all that, right? Yeah. Bob, it's been great talking to you, man. And I'm sure we can do more stuff in the future because you're a great guest and lots of great experiences to share for sure. Yeah, thanks, Chris. And as far as like stuff coming at stuff coming up, bob mold music, BOB, MOUD, music. That's Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, got a lot of touring this year..

"Make this so much better, how can I try and get my voice across and were they even trying to listen to that one? Or what was the reason why things were going the way they were in your opinion? You know, one thing with, you know, I know people, Vince Russo is a very polarizing character in the business. I think the things that Vince Russo brought to the business is he, I think first and foremost, he always tried to find something for everybody. Like even if you were, you know, even if you were a new, a new wrestler or you were down lower in the card than you thought you should be. He always found stories for people. He did. They didn't even WWE when I first started there too. Yeah, and I think there's a balance between finding something for everybody and trying to feature everybody. Because then, you know, nothing's sometimes, if everybody's special, nobody's special. So I thought maybe it got a little too character heavy. I think it was hard to get, I think we're having a hard time getting clean finishes. I mean, there would be times we read the show where we'd be in booking and it'd be like, let's do this against this and let's put this story on it and then it would be okay and what's the finish you go, I don't care. That's up to the agents. And I'd be and then it would just be lots of, you know, lots of interference, lots of non finishes and then like, can't we just get one, two, three, and then everything happens. Yeah. I mean, there's nothing wrong with, you know, there's nothing wrong with all that heat after a finish, but it was just getting hard to get clean finishes. You know, we were doing, I think there was tournaments that didn't make any sense where the mixed gender world championship tournaments were people would get eliminated and they get reinserted and I'm like, yeah, this is not the G one. This is not top of the Super Junior year at all. You know, it's funny, I think you're right about that to where I think Russo's booking philosophy, which was very successful for a certain period of time, was more about the crash TV, more about the angles and the twists and the turns toward the wrestling became secondary. And I think a lot of ways that that attitude still permeates the WWE to this day. Well, let's put bob mold and Chris Jericho against each other. People are going to see it. What's the finish? I'll just do a DQ. It doesn't matter, but it does matter. You know, that's one thing I think that we do fairly well on AW is 99.9% of the time. There is a finish. And like you said, you could always do whatever aftermath you want or story you want to tell, but at least give people who are investing in that part of the story, distinct finish to it. Yeah, and I was so happy when I saw the initial sort of philosophy of AW where it was going to be clean finishes and records mattered and people could be because it's such a great wins and losses are such an easy way to tell a story. People like Bill watts were great with that. So yeah, it's the emphasis of any sport that you watch, you know, or any TV show you watch, you want to see if the good guy or bad guy wins. That's just kind of why we get invested in the first place. Exactly. So I think when you ask about things that may have contributed to the dissent of WCW, I think just little things like that in and of themselves, maybe they don't seem like a company breaker, but when you get a lot of them piled up, doing too many tag matches back to back. I remember, you know, JJ Dillon was always like, why are we doing so many tag matches back to back? Just a little stuff and I'd be like, JJ knows the business, so I'm going to listen to that that makes sense. And so working there, like you mentioned, you were more of like a detailed guy, keeping the cohesiveness on the show. So it wasn't like you were writing promos with anybody or writing storylines. You were there mostly as a clerical organizational guy. Yep. And if I was and if somebody asked me something, then I would give my opinion. But I was the new guy and I knew better, you know. So what was going on with you at the time, musically where you taking a hiatus? Oh man, at the time, in 1998, I put out what I thought at the time was going to be my last guitar record called last dog and pony show. And I was going to step away from the business for a couple different reasons in 1998, I think a lot of the a lot of the guitar rock that maybe I was part of early on had gotten sort of tired. You know, the main thing for me was I had spent 20 years on the road as sort of a rock and roll guitar musician. And I was living in New York City at the time and through all of this through all this time with touring and traveling. As a gay man had never really sort of dealt with my sexuality or integrated myself into the gay community. So I was doing a lot of that in New York City at the time. I was listening to a lot of electronic music. Going out to clubs and living a very different life than I had ever lived. And it was a part of my personal growth that I hadn't, you know, I had an address or had an experience. So that was what was going on and then I get this call to join the wrestling life. So it's a complete switch all across the board. Oh my God, a couple different switches there. It was like multiple reinventions in a year. It's interesting too when you talk with gay men and gay women in 2022, you're talking 1998, but it might as well have been, you know, even still a hundred years ago as far as how that was, you know, your sexuality was viewed by society and entertainment and all that sort of thing. You still almost like just at the beginning of opening up, right? Around that late night. Yeah. Yeah. Because I was born in 1960 and I started, you know, started getting out of stage in 1979 and the 80s were tough for gay folk. You know, the beginning of HIV aids and a decade of that stigmatizing from the evangelicals telling us that this was our fate and our punishment. No fun. No fun at all. No, and you know, having spent time with people like Jim Barnett, who were that is like even generations earlier, who was flamboyantly gay in a lot of ways. Yeah, but never out. Yeah, never out. Exactly, right. But he's like, do you think people know him? I think so. I think so. Right. It's okay. It's 1999. It's okay. But, you know, the 90s things got a little bit better. People started, you know, I think, you know, with, you know, with Clinton and I think, you know, the especially the directions that rock music, you know, specifically a group like Nirvana when Kurt Cobain is so such a messenger for the community. You know, I think things really started to open up in a pop culture sense. Strictly because it was a big, big, made a big contribution. And, you know,.

"The show. He was the president of WCW or whatever gotcha. It was his vision to have sort of a tourist attraction on the first floor. So people could walk by and see the wrestling wrestlers cutting promos and the studio. Which the first thing the first thing I did was put up. But it was us. So how did you mention, you come into WCW, you cleaning it up and obviously it's early 90s was not a good time for WCW. So talk a little bit about that. And then when suddenly nitro starts, just the whole concept of nature because then it went through the roof. Completely opposite from what you ride, to experience just a few years prior. Yes. Obviously, when you're producing a weekly several weekly show, we had two cent two hours on syndication, worldwide, and WCW pro, we had two hours Saturday night, which was. And that was the main show. The mothership, then we had power hour, which was like matter 10 o'clock Saturday morning. And then we had main event which was Sunday Night and we edited a syndicated version of main event. Wow. So we were producing when I walked into it, it was like a train going down the tracks. It 90 miles an hour and I had to jump on board and figure out what was going on. And you know, but just quick. Plus, you know, you throw in a pay per view here and there in a clash of champions, which were already up in a huge deal. And you know, it was, and I came in at a pretty good time. They were slumping numbers, but you know they had a pretty good thing going on with flair and a funk and you know the flash of champions coming up so we popped a good number with that. I think we did a 5 or something like that. I don't remember what we did, but it was the biggest number that had done in a while. So just because I was there, I got some of the credit, which was not at all. Not at all deserved because, you know, we're just counting backwards from ten..

Unforgiven is three hundred and fifty thousand dollars in september. No mercy in. October is three hundred and twenty. Five thousand buys. It feels like the The wheels have run off here. In hindsight it's gotta be if not the biggest blunder with steve austin. The second biggest. I think it's probably the biggest. I i it's easy to sit here now with the benefit of hindsight i understand where he's coming from that. Hey man i. I feel like i need to try something different here to keep me hot. Keep me on top but man it it. It drug business down when nobody could have predicted that would do that. Well here's the thing Stay can see on the thanks shaping out. He didn't have being prepared for him right and so it was almost a defensive mode for him. Yeah necessity. I don't have anybody to work with exactly so i'll change. I'll change character. And i'll become a bad guy but here's the thing that's the same rauscher you're looking at. Do you have do you by you turning ill you guys to work with right. Who who draw money with you know when you get your roster cripple with injuries and at other outside influences just for you are. I would never said this many and toasty this. We'd always cut a half ass laugh about it. i would. i wouldn't turn him. He'll for nothing in the world. You could not have made me turn meal if i had the quote unquote pencil whatsoever. But that's what he wanted to do. And we advanced wanted to let him have this opportunity. And so that's kind of what we were buddy just and we tried it and it didn't work out of respect for it was not a great idea of course admits that now. He knows he's not still standing on that hill yelling. He'll he'll right right and the way he worked on. Conrad you think he worked. ricky steamboat. babies ace come. No just keep doing what you're doing and and and put the pressure on the old man and everybody else involved in the process the pardon me to give a photog- ready and that's what that's to me. That was the issue. Mismanagement creatively of the of the other roster. Somebody should've been getting hotter nail in preparation for stage. Well this is a dream angle. You know the wwf versus wcw had live vicariously through these after magazines. What would happen if hulk hogan wrestled ric flair. What would happen if the undertaker wrestled staying. What would happen if goldberg wrestles stone cold. And we don't get any of those matches instead. We get this main event and fans were excited. I mean set an all-time paper v record for a non wrestlemania show. Think about that. This beat every summer slam this speed. Every royal rumble speed every survivor series mean second only to wrestlemainia this is it and they left and they never came back and the invasion angle continued but no one cared. No in hindsight. What could we have done differently on. This show if anything. Jim to stretch this thing out. And give this angle new life and new legs. I don't there's probably right answer for. I've been wrong ashes. Conrad you can't have a card protocol matches You know the for sure You gotta you gotta have matches our talents on these matches that people have made a confirmed and established emotional investment within. We didn't do that The austin turn would never happen. If i'd have been booking it 'cause i was gonna get you like you said earlier this right. We had a door. The door was open to get the hell out of that scenario. Yeah right but we still try one more time to keep trying. It just never near didn't work. Whatever going to work so shane but the other aspect of it is are things that were out of. Our control often getting injured angle. Getting injured been getting injured among others. Sure there are other guys Brock in his movie career which you can't blame him for that. I mean hell look with guiding. I think last year he made five million dollars. I save made the right call. He did okay. Yeah so thanks happened and these are not just average guys. We were losing. These are main event level established stars. And so unless you can wave a magic wand and it gets all these guys healthy and available. There's not a whole lot you could do. But the issue is to take a step backwards. Could the company have done more to get heels. Ready for steve. Getting red hot white-hot and coming for austin yes definitely so I but other than that man. The the austin turn was wrong and and and people lost interest in us. They their savior. They're john wayne. If you will no longer was playing that role. I'm curious from your perspective. You know since you do. Have paul heyman running around representing uc. W do you think fans would have gotten with this a little more if bischoff was running around as the wcw mouthpiece or did that not really matter in the scheme of things. i don't think he would have trump the of course not. I don't think it would have trump the fact that we didn't have anybody ready for steve and which he saw the writing on the wall. I just think you know. Especially if with the steve dynamic if bischoff is there you could have turned a whole. Big thing with the whole steve. Austin eric bischoff. Hey i'm fired your ass typo. Yeah absolutely yeah. And eric would have played his role out. Perfectly better than haymond. Well you know they're different characters of course but they're both talented guys..

"Awesome even did a suplex on the florida booker and jim ross went off on. Wcw nec w here. He said that wcw was an organization that was dormant for years and then he cw created a style that was career shortening the angles. Any of that any of that untrue. No i mean. I'm a homer. Of course. Yeah you're supposed to be pulling for the wwf. Exactly he buried this guy right right. Easy fell. I represented my role with the team that i was playing on sure. So that's kind of where that was. But i was unlike meltzer. I thought i didn't know how much austin and kurt would have in have the ability to do because of their injuries and they both did a whole hell of a lot more than i thought they might be able to do. There's just a once that adrenaline starts flowing man. You got seventeen thousand fans there in the main event. There's something if you're if you're a main event level player. You just can't help yourself. And i thought that's what i thought that was. I thought the whole presentation that lasts pretty damn good. There's an angle slam on bubba. And then an ankle lock on booker but booker is gonna kick angle off. And he's going to bump into referee. Mike chiasso might goes down. Vince mcmahon in grabs the title. Throws it to austin but shang gets the bill and hits vince with it angle. Knock shane out of the ring. And gives the angle slam and have them in the ankle lock and booker's tapping but of course. There's no referee here. Austin than mexicans miraculous comeback throwing kyoto in the ring but then he kicked angle and gave him a stunner and put booker. T. on top and ordered the referee to count. The show ended with austin in the ring drinking beer with shane. Stephanie and heyman three and a half stars. So a lot. Unpack here as i like to say. But we haven't learned our lesson right like austin's the biggest star in the business wrestlemainia seventeen breaks every single record. We turned him heel. In the main event and the business takes a nosedive. We pull the nose up with this invasion angle so we think why not do it again and we turn austin he'll again even the austin was technically a he'll now he's waving the. Wb a banner. So he's a good guy and gets a thunderous pop but at the end of the show he turns his back on the w. f. and joins the alliance. Now i understand from a creative standpoint. You probably think we need a little more star power on that side of the ball. I get that but man it just feels like this was an opportunity to undo. Perhaps misstep from wrestlemainia. Was this something you think. Austin would push for He's still wanna be he'll advance. Says i said on this show on conrad in meetings. I had with the three of us and then private meetings with events we own that. Jr right oh him. The opportunity to and he said innocent instincts have been pretty good stone cold. So maybe he's onto something. Maybe it'll be right. Place right time to clicks. Just thought it was poor casting i e booking i express myself to both guys band a man that i didn't i didn't think this is gonna work. It's hard in the pro wrestling business to build a viable money drawing baby face and when you find that person and you have that execution of of this function you don't want to screw with it. Just make it stronger and they do that by having stronger villains and the numbers game and he put the baby face in jeopardy. But for god's sakes changing back and forth or whatever when it's working Is what you wanna play on that. So but it was two guys misty. That didn't wanna save. Well not this. Maybe this will do it. Maybe this'll be the trick that it takes. But what people didn't understand was is that steve was beloved so much that even though he had little rough edges and he's course in the fingers and the beer the cursing and all these things people loved him for that attitude. They wish they had that attitude. They live vicariously through him and to hell with the brands. The color of your jersey so But you can make an argument. Well they needed more deaths than they need to more star power and all that stuff. You're gonna start guy that really can't wrestle. So what are we doing. That makes sense to me so and they're still buying his merchandise. There's nothing else to tell you. they're still buying emerged. Like is going out of style obsolete. Conrad yeah so. I don't know what it was a stubbornness i think if you want to cut through the bullshit. I think people being stubborn and saying well. We can make this work. Sometimes you can't make things work if the audience doesn't want it to work and they did not want it to work as relates to steve bing. This hated village. Where i wanna pay my money. Because he's don't get the shit kicked out of it. That never crossed the fans. Mind in my estimation and m. l. s. number six five zero eight four equal housing lender. Woo the real estate market being so hot you have more equity than ever before us that equity.

"Jerry is great. Tasr look slow and rusty but still throws a main suplex to jerry. Carried it with his. Great kicks and tarantula to jerry was throwing kicks tasr blocked one and suplex him to jerry blue the green mist and kick task on the side of the face for the pin star in three quarters man. I don't know what do you think. Well as little surprise it to jerry over me to probably would have put tasr over But that's but there's an out you know the mist and all that other stuff but meltzer's route about jerry. Being great talent. He was really really good and funny and and the boys loved to be around him is it. We'll talk about guys fitting into the locker room or not He he fit and even though he had language issues he kinda make fun of himself but he had a great sense of humor and So things he did backstage wise with regal. I thought were priceless. And when he kicked you you knew that something has been a sticking up. 'cause he was just absolutely great executing what he did And what a big guy but he wrestled like a big guy so i'm a big fan of cherries then and now But i probably would potasium over. I just had higher hopes at tasks is gonna be a bigger star than than he was able to achieve And wwe artist thought he. He was unique unique. Look you know he had a unique game. Plan was a suplex machine. Think the matter of fact conrad. He's the human suplex cbs. So i'm i'm happy to protest tasr. You know dad's still and still enjoy being around the business and got a young son. He's trying to get started and help in getting in the game in hook Hook another one that could probably stand to go to as many wrestling classes as you can at this stage says live. He's one that needs to you. Know he does. He does trade I don't know how much because i'm not around him on a regular basis in that regard but out about it but my money on tasr on that one and put him over but as a finish work out he got protected a little bit and but If you're going to get tired of hearing this ship is five nine or something. There is under sixty right and he still is last a mess saw so that killed him at to some degree it shouldn't he didn't. He deserved better. they didn't get it and but i i was on a big task fan. I still am that matter. I enjoy working on television when he when he's out there with us. But i i'm like you on the other direction up next. Perhaps the mats that everyone remembers most from this show and what a match it is rob van dam and jeff hardy are going to go twelve minutes and twenty four seconds rob van dam was going to pick up the win and win the wwf hardcore title in the process it gets four stars. Unfortunately there's a big spike where van damme drop. Kicks a chair in hardy's face and splits hardy's head open pretty big and of course he does the split legged moon. Salt hardy gets the knees up and ddt's vandamme on his head. Hardy mrs swan and that allows van damme to get the win. With the frog splash of course with the title on his chest and meltzer recall it. Easily the show stealer and gave four stars quite a debut if you will for rob van dam and arguably jeff. Hardy was the perfect opponent. This is really a bright spot on the show. And i imagine turned a lot of heads. What did you think of this one load. I thought those guys. Uh thank god. We had something stimulating. There was something at stake. There are fighting for something other than these team. Spirit of our brand verses. Your brand boola boola ray. Home team all that stuff But i'm a a are those guys killed. This killed it. And i was really. I was so relieved that we got something good to call. Let's say good. That's not good for me to say something like that. I guess but he was. It was it was a match that obviously the crowd was very emotionally invested with them. And and and the the crowd cared about both guys and through the process of smart working and effort. The guys made the crowd lock them. Invest in them. Should i say even more so it was the money. Don't four stars four and a half three three quarters you know. Click here drag this log in him. Whatever the shit they they what they did good man they but they realize our young guys they got a chance to get a real good spots and look they can see what they were following they can hear. The reaction are non reaction so now they're getting audiences ready for and so to their credit to rob and and credit they deliver so the four plus stars or wherever it was that was well deserved in my view. I don't know there's a better match all night art. Frankly i don't think there was. I mean i think it's arguably one of the best matches rob van dam ever had. It's his first major one here in the wwf and man was showing four stars. Go out of your way to see if there's one match on this show. You should go back and revisit this week. That's the one maybe not the next one though By the way it's forty four in case you're curious the alliance versus the wwf. Next up though it's trish and lita they're going to be taking on tori wilson stacey keebler and Double brian panties match. I go five minutes and four seconds with foley as the referee meltzer would say it was what you'd expect mainly women tearing close off of each other. All four were in their bras when the wcw women had their pants taken off to lose Keebler didn't seem happy about being in her bra. Match was long enough to where they actually tried some wrestling between the clothes ripping and that was predictably awful. Of course trish and later were trained wrestlers. But i don't think torii wilson stacey keebler did much wrestling in. Wcw was it important for you to have these ladies learn how to wrestle. A match wants to come over. Yeah that's why we we had hired people like jackie moore and and jazz and Ivory among others. You got to have some people there that was going to help. Tutor mentor it. Forward type thing but this is a let me up deal. Yeah it was a let me up. There's been a let me up match. they were providing something that i think. If i'm not mistaken looking back this connor that was the only female match on the card is my right on that one. Yeah i think. I think we are so it was unique in that regard and that was look if you look if you do play it forward as is often said you'll see that all four. Those women had distinguished careers. Yes in the in the company but they needed. They decided to get their game together. And it's it's a lot easier done there there so anyway. I think I think that they they did the. Let me up match better scores. That could a little comedy little. It was a dramatic or. Wasn't you know a car crash. Type thing big bumps and things of that nature so. I think that it's the fill the role it wasn't booked to be a show. Stater he was booked to give you a little. Let me up entertainment and i thought they did that. Because he can't find four sexier of women in involved in our presentation at that time. Then then those for now it's time for a main event In case you are keeping score it's five to four wwf. But here's a real main event. Now it's the e c w slash. Wcw team the alliance. Which is comprised of the dudley boyz rhino diamond. Dallas page and booker t. So we've got one two three four five different guys on that side and of course on the other side. It's steve austin kurt angle. Chris jericho undertaker and kane. Undertaker's got going to be nursing a few injuries here. Obviously austin and angle or playing hurt so it feels like it will be heavily relying jericho and kane coming in. They get a ton of time to it as a wbf main event. So it's twenty nine minutes and three seconds but meltzer didn't love. It says everyone worked hard. And this was good but not the caliber of most wwf. Main events austin and angle in particular guy huge reactions. When they came. Out vince shane. Paul heyman and stephanie were all brought out to ringside but until the finish non played a part in the match. Austin didn't look good as far as moving early but seem to get it going as the mascot going. He picked his spots and actually did more than i figured he would. He did a super plex off. the top. Two rhino early on and the match would have been better served being a little shorter as same drag in the middle austin tagged in eleven minutes and kick the hell out of booker..

"The match canyon did a traditional russian leg sweep followed by faced first version couple of near falls and saves before stays. He acted reverse. Ddt to gun in morris pinned him a quarter star. so this just feels like hey. We don't really have anything for these guys. Let's just throw them all in here and get them of payday that about it. Pretty much I probably wouldn't have show on the losing side. Because he was the the money guy. I think of that hoke contingent at that point in their careers by also think that it was It showcase a little bit of canyons talents. I know dark side of the rings. Going to show on on chris canyon coming up this fall and he was a very unique character complex character Left us too soon. But he was a very underrated guy. and but but you know it's all leading to the crucial tie-breaker win. Who's going to win the the the night type thing but we found out that when you get to the arena and he started having matches it's all about the matches it's not about our team versus your team unless you have had issues leading into their match in in most matches didn't have that at all so But it was okay. I mean it was our quarter star. I that's all subjective. I don't know what that means. That's like saying who's your mount rushmore. What's your criteria. What's your criteria. Connor is it money. Is it a ring attire. Right what is it is drawing. Money's tenure titles help. I don't know what what the criteria for determining certain things like that but it's just it's just a. It's hard to broadcast this show because we're trying to hang your hat on something that people just weren't buying and that was this team thing. The teen should have had more time to gather momentum and create some issues so that these this pay per view would have been the blow off people. Were expecting something special. And that's why. I seven hundred and something thousand people bought it and i don't know that we deliver something special which i think is probably one of the biggest reasons that vincent do the second one. It's interesting to think about All these different personalities you've gotten here. We know hugh morris is going to go on to be a developmental trainer. Who's going to run into a little bit of controversy. Unfortunately chris canyons no longer with us. he Sadly took his own life several years ago albert these days. It's helping run things. With the next t- billy gunn has seemingly found the fountain of youth. He's working with you guys down in. Aws his big show. But sean stays yak is Still in great shape not that old and not doing anything in wrestling these days. What do you think that is. Because he's working. Fulltime as a chiropractor. Scouted regular gig and sean was An interesting character. Sometimes i thought he cared too. Much always looks good. You always you always he. He wanted to be a lie for his dad. Stan stacey got a cup of coffee with the wwf title one point in time but but a good kid well well intended well meaning but it could rub people the wrong way inadvertently. Our say so But he he got he. He learned trade outside the ring. Conrad smart. that's smart so And he says he's. I think he's a chiropractor down in dallas At least the last time. When i i've talked to him several times in not lately but i've talked to him on her some claws are regular basis. You know. i felt bad for the kid. You know he he. He wanted to big wrestling star like his dad so badly that sometimes he would Zone feet so But he did look good no doubt about that and we had high hopes for him at one point in time it just didn't materialize all right time for us to run a timeout jr. And it's about something that a lot of our listeners can identify with. And of course i consider myself the first listener here on grilling jr just turned forty. And i've started to think about what's the future look like for me and of course for a lot of us that means we take look dear old dad sad to say that can't exactly say. My dad is winning against spinning all of a sudden deaths. Here's look a little thin around top. I think tony shivani referred to arn anderson wants us having a flesh coloured yarmulkes and it feels like i might be hidden in the same direction based on the way. Dad is looking these days. The fact is though to our three men will experience some form of hair loss. By the time they're thirty five and in fact more than fifty million men in the united states suffer from some form.

"But he got a real bad knee injury or something like that but that was before arthroscopic surgeries and all these things that was refined but domestic into book. They could've had an altercation back. They could have had You know both of them thought their book for this match and then they then they got into a little scuffle We've been we've been fine official match. Just didn't make any sense so up next. We've got the apa wrestling sean o'hare and chuck palumbo in a non title battle of the wwf tag champs against the wcw tag champs meltzer would right palumbo and o'hare were aggressive but didn't get much beat all brawling and pretty stiff bradshaw pinned palumbo with the clothes line for what in another era would have been such an important deal. This was really nothing one-star. Let's recap edge and christian beat lance storm and mike awesome so it's one zero. Wwf then earl hefner beatnik patrick. So it's two zero wwf and now the apa has beat the wcw tag champs. It is three zero. Wwf not exactly An invasion at this point No that that's how you're looking at it. it was. It was booked to be that way. It was booked a show. Dot the w. w. e. had the dominance over any brand including wcw You know here's the thing could nick. Patrick have beaten earl hefner to justify what Your point you're making about well burial or whatever it's going to be i get it. I'm with you man but that's not the way division and so it's just you know that would be the last time. Wcw would lose a match paper either by the way they didn't have a great night. So let's talk about billy kidman. He's going to be the first guy to get a pin for. Wcw and it's happening in the very next match that goes seven minutes and twelve seconds before he pins xbox it's the wcw cruiserweight champ versus the wwf light heavyweight champ and even though a title is at stake is on the board now so it's three to one mellon would right. Xbox was still booed even on the deputy f team and he played heal from the start. The word on kidman was always that he desperately needed a new ring outfit now that he's got one haste he still does as those type biker. Shorts were from four years ago Xbox did a silver king plaza kidman kicked out of the x factor and got the pin with a shooting star. Press nothing wrong with the match but nothing compared with kids. Men's matches on wwe pay per view events to stars. Why don't you think this match was better. I mean these are both two very capable performers walkman. Have an off night. Did kidman have an off night to kidman. Not just not comfortable in a wwf. Ring yet what do you think this was. I think it was called booking tiles weren't at stake. They hadn't had a program to lead into this match so it was cold somewhere along the way. I'm gonna convince us. This is a this is the way that this book. There are a lot of cold matches man. Yeah and So but there's nothing wrong with this match. It was a coal match and it didn't it didn't bring the emotion or the build up to it To set the table for it so but both those guys were hell as workers. I used to call good kidman. The world's greatest overachiever of course because he's married dettori wilson and so he was always one of my heroes in that regard so i think he's still working for wwe. Tell me tell me what you'd make meltzer's criticism of kidman's gear. How important i mean. Listen i i'm not saying it doesn't matter but i am wondering and good old. Jr's book how important is what you wear to the ring. Well you gotta look professional. Look neat and clean. But is it a deal breaker maker. It's not gonna make you a star but it can make you look less than the star. If you come out there slash acid spending money in your gear. It is what it is. I think dave may have made to in my opinion. He made too much of it. Yeah it's just made the boxer shorts or so you know i. I just didn't think in those terms and maybe that's just he's smarter than me. You everybody else is smart most of most people in as wrestling concerned but it was just another example of a coal match that the fans were not emotionally invested in. But you still got two stars out of it which is probably being. That's probably a little bit of a surprise but those guys are both health workers and if that had a bigger canvas to to do there are on and it had built up and we were looking forward to this match. I can't wait to see this man that match they had on. Tv two weeks ago was amazing. Now they're going to sell it. Bob bob or something but nothing so i think that's the the coldness in coal. The coal match concept is plaguing the show throughout. Let's talk about the next match. Raven and william regal. They go six and a half minutes. Raven gets the win and melts would say this match. Didn't get over it. All the crowd was dead except for boring. Chance and in the ring it was just a major styles clash. Raven intellect sweep into the barricades regal is an old school. Wrestler and raven is a creative garbage wrestler Finished saul tasr interfere and suplex regal allowing raven to get the pin with a needy t. Quarter star So now we've got a little bit of change in momentum after starting three you know when the wwf side now we've got back to back wins for the wcw w. w contingent the alliance if you will I know we both like both of these guys. Raven and william regal styles clash is probably the right way to describe this one Oh absolutely yeah. And then he got that Element of task into the equation. So you got some really talented guys involved but again you get the same scenario. We talked about earlier. The matches cold meant nothing. That people didn't care. And so when you get that handheld you as a talent. It's very hard to your. You're swimming upstream. Shall we say but that match was a styles make fights. This is not a good fight next up. We've got a six man that's going to be canyon. Teaming with sean stays eac and hugh morris to win over big. Show billy billy gunn and albert. That'll get married much time. Four minutes and twenty three seconds but once again it's a win for the alliance so it's going to be three to three here but again four minutes and twenty three seconds not a ton of time melts word. Right fans didn't seem to care about gone who did that..

"Wbz introduced into this invasion angle. When do you remember that becoming the new thing or was that always the plan. I think that The inevitability of utilizing Talents from e c w was just prominent. I thought it was a no brainer. 'cause again here's thing we've talked about this because of variety of issues conrad. We didn't have accessibility to a lot of people. And the the big is that we brought in originally or all really good workers They had they were hungry. They a lot of them have dreamed their whole life of being in wwe You know i guarantee. The deadliest had the grew up in area. So they they. Obviously you know or fans of of the brand not have been fans of the philosophies of at some times but are they knew it was stable work. They knew they're getting paid on time. They may saga no not a big deal to some paid getting paid on time. Well it is a big deal and so by coming to wwe. They knew that they're going to get paid luck clockwork and it was not going to be you know. Where's my check type deal. You've heard all those stories. You has got the checks at home or wherever you know so. But i thought it was a no brainer because it added a quality depth that we didn't have because of all these defections for injury or movies or whatever the case may be well the atlanta raw is where a cw morphs into this angle with wcw. Stephanie mcmahon is going to be revealed as the new owner of w and again a silly as that sounds context is king shane quote unquote owns. Wcw so all fun storyline still getting the mcmahon's involved and don't forget we're not too far removed from a wrestlemainia where we had a mcmahon in every corner The dynamic is certainly changing here.

"What if we recently did an episode with eric bischoff over eighty three weeks talking about what his plans would have been Had he gotten control of wcw Towards the end of the first quarter of two thousand one and they talked about moving the show to las vegas and setting up a residency there and he also talked about the commentary team and he had had conversations with joey. Styles had conversations with tony shivani. And of course jerry. Lawler and bischoff revealed his plans had he actually acquired. Wcw would have been to keep to shows going a nitro thunder and have joey. Styles is the lead voice on one. Probably working with cyrus who we know. These days is dawn. Callus or tony. Shawny says don kelly. I don't know why says that And then of course the other show would be tony. Shivani and jerry lawler and i thought that was interesting. That both of those guys are your old tag team partner. And now they might beginning together How do you think that could worked. Towing in lawler of and great Tony tony came back when he came back to work for a w after tony. Kahn and recruited him running down to jacksonville for a couple from meeting in lunch. And all those good things for creating things. Tony was very much ready to come back to wrestling. And that was first time it had that attitude about it and quite some time. I kind of walk away from.

Anybody listen. reliability is a hell of a thing where we in our in our world right now You know when you've got people that don't wanna work but they are willing to take all the benefits of unemployment or whatever the case may be you know a down jacksonville. They got their offering truck drivers up to five thousand dollars sano bones and it's because they can't the work people can can get by. That's what they do. They get by found little comfort zone do outside monies that they have an art so anyway. I think that. I think jerry and antoni would have been phenomenal Or any combination there. joey styles. Excellent excellent commentator. You know joy. It was really stuck on what he joy was a the votes. A of the ec w style breath and rugged blood and guts hard core. We are hardcore where. Cwc to all that shit so And there's nothing wrong with that. He was loyal. So eric. Catch some pretty good ideas there. Those are those guys could have done a real good job for anybody's television show at any accommodation That they chose to be placed in so good. I thought that was. I didn't realize that that content on eighty three weeks conrad you. It's not bad not bad stuff at all. Well i'm curious from your perspective when we talk about what did happen just sort of laid the groundwork that on the heels of that buff bagwell booker. T. match vince. Mcmahon changes everything. But at this point man you are so heavily invested. You had been meeting with talent. I mean you set up shop there in atlanta for a while just trying to get your arms around it as we like to say and now he's like nope moving on. How frustrating was this. That vince was seemingly throwing the baby out with the bathwater oil. I was very frustrated But you know you learn. I learned this is a kid. You know there was boss in my house. Oh yeah the old man. And i learned i. I was raised by very strong opinionated alpha male so i kind of got indoctrinated that style that management of style. If you want to say early age there was nothing. I figured out somewhere along the way resting. I extended my career. That don't get too wrapped up things. You can't control assist lewis. And so i you set to cut ties with it all. But i i set up shop at the ritz carlton hotel actually in atlanta down. A bucket and jan was with me. I remember that very vividly. I remember taken. My god. Mr barnett dinner. We had a great dinner. He's like going out with two ladies and all do respect jamesy And of course he was giving me advice on this guy. And that guy you know aren't that was a big proponent of the newsletters things of that nature so He had opinions and everybody so we went to dinner. The second having a good meal having some fellowships so to speak not to talk about a lot about wrestling but my meanings there were find out. Do you wanna work right and their talents there that you know vince didn't have you know flex saying they. Finley will be a good agent or coach our producer. Whatever the hell you want to call them today. And i'm thinking well he would be good at always areas but he's also got a fuel tank. It'd be a hell of a wrestler as a great worker. It can make anybody. He was with better and we had a lot of we needed. A lotta that element. But you know it's the rival the thing about you know with this one or two guys in if they see the vents is not overwhelmed with that idea. Then you know where they're going they're going to go right there to what to what they perceive against us. Thank you. so they don't run again. Crossed the boss so we had a i stayed in atlanta for. Gosh we were there you know. Maybe i don't think we're there a week but we far there four or five days and meeting with everybody had a schedule and To find out who wanted work and what you wanted to do and you know. Are you healthy not wrestle or whatever the case may be so i learn how to suck hooked up itis and hired him to be my sister and Then we work through the roster and and and did the best we could with it under the guideline game plan that was originally set up but then after that seattle thing the seattle tacoma tacoma tacoma after that all bets roth all that work was for not so we still hearts guys and the ones that we that we had. Great confidence booker t. Panned out became a hall of famer and a millionaire. So that's how that went down. But it was very frustrating for me. Because i still had to do the payroll. I still down there doing payroll early in the morning. So the guys that were already higher. We're getting paid. I had to do the house show bookings and again you. The roster changed daily because either injuries are our in our unavailability so it was hard. It was a far the toughest time in my career stress. Wise and work wise For me personally. But i couldn't do anything about it but do my job and try to make that proverbial tickets out about chicken shit. Well you're going to try to make chicken salad out of e. Cw i'm curious. How does this become a thing. Heyman pushing for. Hey what if we added c w to this wwf wcw war because it does feel like there's a pivot and i don't know if that match what went well talking about the booker t. And and buff bagwell match. That thing would have gone swimmingly. I don't know that we would have seen ec..

Mr jim ryan jim. Our you man. I'm good conrad recording today from oklahoma on our little texas tour of events for aws. Thought i'd come home and chill at oklahoma for a few days. The last time you there from granddaughter's graduation about two and a half three months ago. Is it weird to be away from home long. Yeah i remember i. I don't have a recall a lot of passwords and all this stuff including zoom things like that and in jacksonville. I've been so much it's just automatic. Everything's set up here. I had to do little. It work which for me probably not greatest Thank the world but nonetheless Here we are so. And i'm looking forward to. The show should be pretty good and i've been look. We've been having a lot of fun on road ratings a good and Crowds have been good. It's ms so you know that show. We had in austin we sogo which is off the charts and it got good ratings. Obviously according to the pr yet yeah more than a million folks. It was number one show. Cable was not hard to meet man so with my john. Wayne morgan hand. I'll say congratulations to the team. So anyway how are you been man better than i deserve excited to be back with you. Of course i Wasn't able to record last week. I was on a little vaca- so polly brumwell did his best conrad thompson impression. I hear well it. He did a good job. He's a good hand so he's not conrad thompsons for god's sakes what he did a good job seriously. You did a real good job. He was well prepared and Head his game plan game face on and so we had and we had some fun so polly did a good job for us. Well and we're excited about today's topic. We're going to be covering boy. One of the hottest pay per views of all time invasion from two thousand one just to add some context to where we are at this point in two thousand and one. We're on the heels of the biggest wrestlemainia of all time wrestlemania seventeen but sadly that's where we turn steve austin he'll rock goes off to make a movie and the business starts to hit the skids until this pay per view. The show. we're talking about. Today is the most successful non wrestlemainia pay-per-view ever for the world wrestling federation. Which really when you think about. It is pretty remarkable and i know people like to poke fun at the invasion angle and talk about how it was bungled and oh what could have been but man fans were bought in for this pay per view and it was a huge success financially. It was big surprisingly good. I think we all thought it might be solid the say and but it was more than solid is outstanding and it was. I think the reason that people wanted to see something. New is a new concept in that respect or two brands or kind of dueling so it was a it was a successful show and I i remember it fondly. But you know you're either. One can't dwell on could've been what should have been. How do you follow up better. You know the bottom line is always gonna be the fact that you know if we didn't have all the players right and and somebody's gonna say well. Why didn't you get them. Because they are under contract making a lot of money to do nothing to do nothing. They're able to heal our wounds there. None of them are spring chickens. they wanted to they. They had that mailbox money coming in. Which is the very best kind. So i was pleasantly surprised. That did so well. It was a fun show broadcast too well. And we're going to get into the show but i think what most fans are really interested in what could have been so. That's what we're going to talk about a little bit before we get going. There was talk when this whole angle started that perhaps raw was going to become a wcw shell and smackdown was going to be a wwf. Shell those several different versions of concepts that you guys kicked around including a late night show etc etc but do you remember there ever being a discussion. Hey maybe we'll make the monday. Show the wcw brand all. I'm sure I would say all options are being explored right Long discussions about monday night. Raw becoming a non w. w. e. brand show. I don't recall that but it certainly could have happened. 'cause like i said everything was on the table. We're clean slates. We're going to start over. How could we make all this work in. And we could have supported a wcw shell again. Conrad we had the players. We didn't have the players around the offense that we wanted to run. And we weren't going to get him so it wasn't a matter. We shouldn't bits it opens checkbook. Shoulda woulda coulda is easy to monday morning quarterback these things consequently i think that Everything was on the table but it still comes back to the same thing man. I sound redundant apologized. We didn't gobert and we didn't have hall nash. We didn't have hogan as we didn't have a lot of elements that we needed to make sang really a impressive brand so but i was happy. That show did well and Gave everybody some hope. I think that you know maybe there's life and especially for the talent they saw. They can participate in a successful event and it may give them that second chance that second life and So that's kind of where we were on that. Deal i you know. I thought i've thought about this show. And the invasion situation many many times you know what if what if god almighty drive yourself crazy on the what issues so anyhow but it was a. It was a fun experience. It was a very hectic time for me personally because trying to blend to audit to Rosters together and you find out. There's a little. There's a rivalries in the wcw loyalty still existed and all those things you know so it was just a it was ill fated but we got that one good pay per view out of it. I thought you know that. I hope that we would do more than that. One i thought we you know because it had a concept worked and so and show is pretty good but we Didn't wanna do a second show so his call so let's talk a little bit about King of the ring. We're coming off of that show where we had really the first. Wcw versus wwf showdown. It was ddp and undertaker. We've also seen booker t. Accidentally injure the franchise stone cold. Steve austin crispin wa is going to have surgery to repair his nagging neck. A man the hits keep on coming. It feels like two thousand. One sort of post wrestlemainia. The roster was feeling snake bit. That'd be hard to say. Oh yeah and a good thing that. I have pencils for the racers. Yeah caused man. There's a lot of booking changes and you know then then that this leads to other things you know. You can't have accurate advertising when you know the spots or sent out and then all of a sudden you you're in you're in you're in the loop of trying to catch up and give the audience adviser take us the right card all kinds of things you probably wouldn't think about but nonetheless it was just a you know when you lose that many quality talent i'm shocked at the. It was a lot of companies right to their knees down near. 'bout brought us on our knees because our guys are becoming unavailable for variety of reasons. Let's let's talk about developmental because that's what wrestling fans want. You often tell you on the show. Wrestling fans want new. Obviously we've got a a a new set of faces here from wcw but what's the next big thing Your revamping developmental in this era mc w interior golden or out h. w. a. and les thatcher in why wasn't memphis championship wrestling. Working out for you. Well i don't know terry golden personally To to any degree. I think that was part of it. You know just the fact that we didn't have the infrastructure memphis you know. They were still trying to do things. The memphis way which is cool in memphis at work for decades but we need something different We need to training ground..

That was young into the ground. Falling years of poor decisions and also a lack of long-term vision was. Wcw made may have always been this destined to fall to number two behind the wwe. The company should still exist in some capacity as of the spring of two thousand sixteen. That it doesn't is a shame as there has now been early alert placement for wcw since the company shut for shut down for good fifteen years said you do excessively the saddest thing at.

Bischoff attempts to revive the Monday Night Wars

"Where we're living out around quite a bit here but eventually it's an ask. The BISCHOFF IS GONNA make a bold move and he's GonNa put. WCW programming head to head on Monday night of against Monday night raw with Nitro when you first hear the news that hey we've got real competition and WCW on Monday night and they're going to be live every week whereas we're taping shows in advance at this point what's your what's your take on that. Do you think this is real competition or is wwe still perpetually going to be a little big brother other of of the WWF. I thought the WF headed a massive head. Start as they do right now. No company is going to threaten. WBZ market share anytime. Anytime soon. Luckily mine or your lifetime. Conrad quite frankly. But that's not a sad sad tale to tell because there's plenty of money out there revenues to to earn in the entertainment world that cutting a W for example can can enjoy enjoy and make significant profits over time. So I I just I think that On what we're talking about Tran thought this left I was thinking about something else is nitro. Oh Yeah Yeah my issue is this. I I questioned where they have the in-house personnel to pull it off in a big way and of course a lot of that stuff was You Know David Crockett part of getting a credit for some of the. Because he was one of the you know one of the producers there an onsite people but giving the staff have to gather to do the the you know to to the rigging the lighting everything I didn't know they were. They were ready to do that because everything had always been such a smaller scale Ale and then to be able to do it live every Monday. A major us a whole different world so I didn't know that that was going to be as successful as it was and it was a pleasant surprise actually because it made the business look better overall because they hate they had great production values in the show's look clean slick. You might not agree with creative. Hell that's normal. You can say that any heir any show with the the the show look good and I thought that was a step in the right direction for them. So so you could. You can tolerate a good-looking show. That might not be the greatest creative for a little longer now forever a little longer than he can. The other way around.

It's a one thousand eight hundred ninety nine. You can pre-order it right now is coming out the end of twenty nineteen beginning of twenty twenty and. They have a payment plan so you don't have to pay it all at once. You can make payments. Okay. If you're near a local comic shop that has is going to be participating local comic shop day, which is going to be November seventeenth. They have released to the special comics are coming out. Local comic shop day usually has exclusive comics for those participating stores. One of those is alien cz three, William Gibson's alien, three, unproductive screenplay. That in the I'm looking at it, the cover looks pretty good. It is going to be a part of one of the alien things that were not produced good story. The another book that was leased was image. Comics is going to be putting out a hardcover collection of the first six issues of Gideon falls by Jeff Lemaire. Getting falls pretty popular comic special. You can pick it up exclusive collection in hardcover. That's hard to pass up. So comic shop day go to your local comic store in CBO picking up November seventeenth, which is a Saturday, no skew should work. Video game players the WWE to k nineteen. His revealed some of their roster if you like the old eighties, nineties throwback, wrestlers you're going to be very happy, the WWF WCW era. They're bringing in. Tons of the old care designing rowdy. Roddy piper. Jake, the snake Roberts Ted DB Ozzy the million dollar man ultimate warrior ravishing Rick rude, Mr.. Perfect. DP Bret Hart leader and Ricky steamboat dragon, just the name of few. They are saying they still have a few more to announce for this than game will become an out Tober fifth. So if you're a wrestling video game fan, you don't wanna pick up w w e two k nineteen on October. Fifth. Stephen King fans, you're good. You're getting a lot of Stephen King lately. Well, they're doing some more. They're going to remake pet cemetery. If you're familiar repet- cemetery, that's the the show where the guys kid this year be spoilers books out forever and so's the first movie guys kid is he buries him in the. 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. Gnocchi been reading affinity wars. You've seen that they have a kind of. A weird offshoot from that cone, Infinity warps were Gamarra's. She's gotten them vanity stones, and she's kind of folded the universe in on itself. And a lot of the characters have been combined merged as you had cabinet. American doctor strange were merged form soldier supreme thorn. Ironman merged, have iron hammer, and they revealed a new one. Just the other day wolverine was merged with Emma frost. His appearance didn't really change much still has the wolverine look except the. He's got the blonde hair a got the Pat. He's wearing a passionate like he did when he was when he was patched. I patch. The big differences you tell him his speech patterns is much got much more manners speaks more eloquently, but those still moving in, he gets his rage every once in a while. So if you like the idea of them merging two characters for a new one. There. He go Infinity warps with a p. they're doing and they've got other ones too, like they have ghost panther weapon Hex. Wolverine is not the only one to get merged bunch of our if that's your thing than you want to pick up infinitive warps. Okay, Batman. If you've been reading Justice league, you saw Batman is just been decimated. I mean, lex Luther. When he had the totality doorknob, he crushed Batman, broke all his arms legs. This left him in a bad way. And you saw the last Justice league issue. He had a a full body, armor suit that allowed him to keep moving around even though pretty much most the bones as body were were broken. He's gone one step further. Now he has his own little hover wheelchair. So he looks a lot like professor x with a big bat symbol on his chest. Sure. He's still pretty deadly. Even with that full body armor, he wolf to bunch of of legion of doom. He was pretty instrumental and then justly getting the totality away from lex Luther on. Now, he's taking easy. He's he's sitting instead of standing. But this, this hover chairs pretty armored up. I'm sure he's got it full of all kinds of weapons. So certainly Justice league. You're gonna see a bad just won't stop fighting and they're getting the totality transfer out how to get it to fix the source law. 'cause it's supposedly a battery used for creating universes. So they to figure out how to use it to fix our multi-diverse. Justice league Scott Snyder for you going with this. Don't worry that one to you. Okay. Harvey awards, their New York Comecon. They're going to have the presentation of twenty eighteen hall of fame in duck dis. It looks like there's only two of now, Dave Gibbons, if you tell me that's because he was the artist on the watchman. Alan Moore was the guy with the story.
