Re: The Wrestling Podcast Thread

It's generally well-known that The Undertaker has long been one of the most respected wrestlers in the world, and his stature among his peers made him the perfect person to serve as the judge of WWE Wrestler's Court - the very real assembly that met when WWE employees needed to hash out differences on the road.

Former WWE head writer Brian Gewirtz joined Chris Jericho's podcast Talk Is Jericho and told an amazing story about the time he was put on trial in Wrestler's Court during the Attitude Era. Gewirtz was close with The Rock (and now works for The Rock's Seven Bucks Production), Edge and Christian - but some WWE stars felt that Gewirtz was giving Edge and Christian an unfair amount of screen-time, the trio was forced to appear before The Undertaker following WrestleMania X-Seven.

Via Talk Is Jericho:

Jericho: At the time, if somebody had done some sort of heinous crime ... you would have to sit in front of the whole company and basically get a trial.

Gewirtz: As a kid, I liked the Flash, that was my guy, and Edge was doing a signing somewhere and someone gave him a Flash [figurine]. At the time there was a death in his extended family and he had to leave the show. He was like 'hey man, I was going to give you this later, but someone gave me this thing at a signing, its a flash figurine, why don't you take it?' And I think Bob Holly oversaw that.

It was the day after WrestleMania 17, after Rock left, so my biggest advocate was gone. I was told 'you, Edge and Christian are going to wrestler's court. I [didn't] know what it was. I expected Vince [McMahon] to be like 'you don't have to go to that' and he says 'good luck, pal!'

And here's how stupid I am. I don't remember who I talked to, maybe it was Stephanie [McMahon]. I assumed it was like a tribunal, of sorts, so they're like 'bring beer and pizza. You're going to want to appease the people judging you.'

Jericho: I don't know if he was for your one, but Undertaker was always the judge ... if you were sentenced, you would have to pay him with alcohol.

Gewirtz: Yes, he was, he was there too. This was just to appease the court, so I found a six-pack and a single box of pizza.


Jericho: One six-pack?

Gewirtz: One six-pack, one box of pizza, plain. And I kind of just sauntered in, thinking there would be five people in, and it's every single worker, wrestler, referee, diva, agent ... if catering was there I wouldn't be surprised. Literally every single person in the company was in there, and the three of us went on trial.

Jericho: So what were you accused of?

Gewirtz: I was accused of accepting gifts from Edge and Christian for TV time, because that was the inside perception. There was also a rumor that, when we had a show in Long Island, that I took Edge and Christian to my parents' house and we all had dinner together. Which was not true, but it's not like I wouldn't have done that. At one point I said 'if it pleases the court, I'd like to call my mother as a character witness.' .... At one point, Bob Holly and Sean Waltman [X-Pac] had to be physically restrained by Kane, the bailiff. It got, like, really ugly.

Jericho: I remember, what was Bob yelling at you? "I ain't getting no TV time? You don't have nothing for me? You got any ideas? I got an idea, how about I become the champion?'

...

Gewirtz: We were found guilty, even though I wasn't giving Edge and Christian airtime for the gifts. Obviously Taker's the man, obviously, so he had me write an essay on why I respect the business, which I legitimately wrote and handed in. He read it, and it was a surreal experience.

Will have to check that one out, will be interesting to hear a perspective outside of the biz for a change. I know Chris was buddies with Chris Benoit too so I imagine this isn't them both rubbishing him and they try and make sense of that sad tragedy which occurred.

#Boom

I hope Konnan does a podcast with Adam Carolla.He's hilarious with Austin, but Konnan shares his sense of humor perfectly. Konnan on Loveline back in the day would have been amazing. It's a shame Savage was the only WCW Guy they had on. Raven, Heenan and Nash would have been hysterical.:

WWE‬ Hall of Famer Bret Hart went off on Triple H on the latest edition of the Sharpshooter Podcast on Bret Hart Radio.

He said, “I don’t care how many titles Triple H wins. He could never lace my f*cking boots up. Period.”

Why?

Because Triple H had a higher rating than “The Hit Man” in ‪‎WWE2K15‬.

His rant went down while Bret discussed :‪‎WWE2K16‬ with his sons, Blade and Dallas.

Bret: I like the new one. I have some discrepancies with the game a little bit. I went to a thing last Fall when the latest 2K game was coming out. They were telling me how I’m an 85 or something like that and Triple H is a 98. I remember I was like, “Why would he be a 98?” And they go, “Well because he’s the boss and we have to suck up to the boss.” I dunno, he was laughing about it. It kind of pissed me off. I thought, “I don’t care how many titles Triple H wins. He could never lace my f*cking boots up. Period.”

Blade: WOAH! Shots fired!

Bret: He was a very good, medium, mediocre wrestler. He never blew me away with anything that he’s ever done. He’s never come up with much. He’s always been a very decent wrestler that could give you a good match. As far as being like mind blowing…

Dallas: The best there is, the best there was, the best there ever will be…

Bret: I never saw it. I’ve still never seen it. I’ve seen him in some matches and the whole “4 Out Of 10” thing came out of his match with Lesnar. Which should have been such a good match. It was a mediocre match, if that. That’s where the “4 Out Of 10” comes from. He’s always a guy that will give you a “5 Out Of 10” match every night. He’s going to give you all he can give you and that’s just my opinion. There’s certain guys where you put these video games out and I don’t care. I think you have to do justice to the wrestlers as they were in their careers. It should be based on reality. Not things like who you know in the office. Vince could make him 35 time World Champion and it doesn’t mean he’s 35 times better than everyone else that ever wrestled. He’s just not. As far as the games go I think they should be honest. Someone like Bruno Sammartino should never be a jobber on a video game. So on and so forth. I think you have to pay respect. When I think of a video game I think about how I’d love to have Buddy Rogers versus Ric Flair. Something like that. Where you can wrestle these legends against each other from different periods and stuff. They should always represent the reality of what the wrestling business is and was. It should also include the respect the wrestlers have for each other in the dressing room.

Blade: I’d love to see Grampie in there. I’d love to see you versus Grampie. It’d be a hell of a match.

Bret: I’d take my Dad down so fast! I’d have him in the Sharpshooter so fast!

Gonna take a hard pass on that idiot.
Something To Wrestle with Bruce Prichard Episode 1
I haven't heard it. But Wrestlezone's review said he claimed every territory Vince tried to overtake threatened they were going to take over New York state. Maybe Crockett since they did run shows there. But AWA or Mid South or World Class or even Calgary that actually sold to Vince in the 80s never said that.
