Joined in studio by diamond Dallas page WW we hall of Famer. Diamond speech. Says it's still fresh to you. Nice ring to it I thought how does that feel it was really cool and knows I was actually filming my. Dvd series at WW just put out positively living. Which is buys some biography did they do and it and then a dual matches and stop after that. And actually got in last filming. And it's at the end of the day to bleachers you know call to me and I was thinking he's finally call me back. I called import. The earth and we started talking I'm thinking like what is cold for notably shakes comically back. You better know what do you but it has scope and then he started go to in my career and at some point became like trying to. You know obviously this could be that call and Hillary's I really wasn't aware that it was happening. Was causes October. And I yeah I thought it and career worthy you know the whole thing but you know it's it's like anything yet you wait and you see when it comes up and he started work his way towards that then so we wanna put your normal fame and it shall we now. A career worthy of the hall fame in your career I mean. Peaks right at the time when pro wrestling kind of piqued I mean you're at the top of the game when. I mean pro wrestling was everywhere. Can you give us that because idea you can look it difference. Ein news outlets and it seems like every legitimate news outlet is in someway or she performed talking about wrestling and it seems like wrestling is kind of back. Can you compare now when it seems like wrestling is big too. Back then. Well back then we don't the cable networks and they don't own the cable networks today the other doing very well and really wrestling is like I'm talking with the my agent and how about doing it showed the Kevin Cash is doing with the BBC and easy he's a retired wrestler but you don't know it to like the port episode. And is nemesis shows up and you know that's that's where things you know it's like it's everywhere wrestling sort of integrated it's made it. I think WW made it more like every day apart of Americana. You know but back in the ninety's man and we exclude the Monday night wars present and ever compare to that. Because it literally was fighting for. Who is the number one cable should not just wrestling show. Cable show and when we added not just brought nitro. Under smackdown. Ballots for wrestling jokes. Sometimes we were 1234. Top rated shows on cable television and there was times where you know will we really started he kicked our butts pretty good. You know we were we had it's highs 67. Rating which is 878 million people watching the show and then flicking back and forth. So or we're it was it was kind of surreal to assert that he. Do you have. I guess any one thing that sticks out is the reason why it was so popular damn was it just a mix of everything attitude the timing was right for wrestling is there anything that. Think about this we you're watching a movie. When you get pulled the characters. Or you're watching a show. Billions. Gore you know Sons of Anarchy or whatever that show you pulled him. When you get cold and chilly. It's like it's a race that aluminum out like this is believable to me is really be happening these guys are amazing actors. Because they've worked so hard to become that person. In wrestling when you can blur of this and way you can make people think waited. He's real like people don't know still to display what's real and wrestling in what spot because we're the first real should. Were the first when it took you know things really happened in real life and moved him in this story are and we Kevin Nash and Scott Paul came over and thank Scott showed up. It's a bringing a three r.s three baddest guys you bring your three I who's he talking about. I know when new guitar like oh my god WWE. Is now merging would WCW something. They dig in now and it would Kevin showed up. You know it it was you know where it more like you kind of that was an Internet back there was but there really wasn't. As an avenue to the power. That went Hogan terror. And Hogan was the immortal babyface. And we eat turn and ripped up there say and just started burying the stats. And this was the new world order. Turner got the siege to we've phone calls people crying. People so mad that third kids. Were so upset. And a lot of adults were too. And again it blurred the lines what was real and that's what. Like what's interesting today is their way more storyline based and don't give credit to their writers and you whether you like the story lines are not because they're writing. Three hours of television. Every week. And two hours of television that a lie. So it's really hard to keep things fresh especially when everything's been done. And the tough part for the young talent today is are given a script. I grew up they're saying. When I'm given a script like for any moving on Dillard's show. How would have to piece. You know sometimes weeks or months. To prepare for. They've got minutes. You know and they also don't really write their own material because all these right different were I wrote all my house. Jake Roberts Rudolph was announced hole Steve rock every. Everybody you meet him before this Brecht you know I mean every one of the guys got to take their own personality. And moved from there and deputy tried to do that but it's just tough. It's really tough because of writing so much intelligence so we knew characters and thank god that triple H came up with that idea of an XT. And doing the whole performance center down there and down and Orlando. Because that becomes are feeding ground and closed the independent some of these kids who can make their way through and make an impact. You know like some like and it was certainly didn't Bryant when he was coming up a C impart these guys were all over the indie scene make you name it vessel ten years got there. So they were seized. Two you know to a degree of work and even Promos that they would. So you just finding who. You know to I'm dolls they conduct really find that when it happens to call. You mentioned some of those new or guys do you still watch a lot of wrestling do you have favorites now or are you a little removed. Little move but I still about terrorists on the big pretty quiet fans who watched a lot of Jake but he is doing his own thing like there's a guy that. I came in the first time and didn't really get over and they really know to do with them and and I. You know the whole duck dynasty your thing that changed he still has that changed America to a certain degree and and yelled pretty was it was grown is out and the whole thing what my first love their first Promos. It reminded me of a movie did called Dell's rejects. Which is disturbed. Teen horror movie that Rob Zombie you wrote. Price fell while this is doubles rejects. How they get me this PG head you know and they do you know they did and to go to to Brady's credit. You know late if I was like in charge of writing. Yo I would add him beat taker like that you have been in particular to being twenty you know whatever it was time an odd ad break beat him. Game go him start his own record but it it just me. Outside looking in there's so many other things. That can happen. As this to a lot of guys who come in and it says it kind of hit and miss what the cancerous. You venom buffalo before plenty of times great great great city for routes do you have memories of buffalo or is the wrote such a blur. You know there's you know one of my favorite people town.

Did to that your job cuts but there's so many people came out to me and Kyle thank you so much for doing this. Because they did and Dennis that bore hole. She no reduction in. We were just start yet ha you know we weren't hot yet but it was like I I always Christian. The rock and this night it's Dennis was the beginning of what was about patent for WCW. And so many people came to me in thanking me for you for doing this for it for Leo's foundation and all the but he did. Because he was huge charity you. So. Marriage that is delegate on the first match. And a days popped in we and we were to become buddies in he's ready day as saying recruit all bro would be the first one out. And I'm one knock it out. And looked after it was 161000. People there. I'd never seen a crap. Important piece. So and eight red hot. He works and I was in almost the spot peoples' urgent GDP are still bad. You know so.

Really big deal you know and I walk for a sailor talk to everybody and I've done is where it's been a 150 people this is a really light crowd because when you're in buffalo is only being in Boston and her New York you grabbed from Seoul many. Different cities so. You know it's gonna be as a small intimate crowd. People get a lot of attention. I will be absolutely. Do in my inspirational thing which really goes through the whole thing.
