Default Former Star Give Reason Why Attitude Era Better!!

Former WWE Star Trasher joined Kayfabe Wrestling Radio for a nearly 30 minute interview. Here are some highlights.

How much was already scripted for the Headbangers and how much was just them: “Probably about 90% of it was ‘Hey guys, go out there and be yourself’. So, I’d have to say at that time, in that era and stuff, it was about characters and it was about being how you are and stuff like that; not everyone tried to go out there and be Stone Cold Steve Austin. We had colorful characters that people could get emotionally attached to and plainly I think that’s what’s missing from Today’s wrestling.”

Performing during the Monday Night Wars: “It was a really good atmosphere. You had guys competing against the other company at that same timeslot; so if you were the first match on RAW, you wanted to outdo the first match on Nitro. It was a head-to-head, really and not too far-fetched from being a real competition. I mean, you wanted to have your ratings be better for that segment than Nitro’s. So, it was a lot of fun back then because on Tuesday, you’d run up there and see what the ratings were and everything else and be like ‘Oh, man. We almost had them.’ or ‘Oh, man. We got them this week!’ It was a lot of fun. Now, I always tell people ‘Why didn’t you like WWF back then, because you didn’t like WCW? Why do you like WWE now?’; because there’s nothing else to watch. Mark my words, TNA is up-and-coming and I can see them, in the next two years, rivaling WWE for ratings. I absolutely love what TNA is doing now, more so that what WWE is doing.”

And he also talked about...

Would he and Mosh have liked to have social media back when they were with WWF: “It’s funny because we’ve talked about this; I like it now because I love, and everyone knows that, on Twitter and stuff like that, if you follow me, then I’m going to follow you; If you ask me a question, I’m going to answer you. Sometimes, it might take me a little bit, I’m actually going to get to it sooner or later. But it’s funny because me and Chaz have always talked about it; we said if he’d had the access of Facebook and Twitter and all of that stuff, back then as we do now, yeah, I don’t know how many people would still be free. I think there would be some who would be incarcerated right now, I think. Because, you end up having to find ways to, when you’re out on the road, to find ways to entertain yourself and a lot of times, they might not be lawful. So, I’m actually glad we didn’t have it back then, because I’m free today.

Being ‘ribbed’ by Owen Hart and Davey Boy Smith: “It was funny, because Owen used to do fully, silly stuff where the rib would last two days. I can remember him being in the locker room and taking someone’s wrestling bag and taking a padlock and padlocking it to a chair, just a steel chair. Or he take two guys bags; he did that to me and Chaz, he took a padlock and locked our two bags together and we were just like; we walk in and catch the end of it. We’re like ‘Oh, hey. What are you doing?’ and he’s like ‘Oh, your bags are locked together. I don’t know who did that; I just came over and saw it.’ We knew who did it, because it was just Owen. Just to see what would happen tomorrow, is what he would do. Me and Chaz, we lived in the same hotel room, so the bags went together. We played along with it and lasted until Tuesday when we came to do TV and when we got there, we’d break the lock open.

“It was harmless stuff but it was just so funny and it happened so often. One time, when Mark Henry first started wrestling, he broke his ankle or his leg. So, we’re in the arena and Davey takes his crutches because he was sitting down. So he steals the crutches without Mark Henry even knowing and then Owen comes up to Mark and say ‘Hey, Vince wants you and he’s on the other side of the arena.’ So, Mark is looking around and going ‘Oh my god’ and can’t find his crutches. So, Mark Henry gets up and he starts hopping, on one leg, all the way across the arena and no Vince McMahon. It was things like that and once you know it was a joke, it was so funny.”

He was in the attitude era? Werent they basically just a jobber to the stars tag team?

The reason the attitude era was better is because the WWE got over more than just one top guy, they had Austin, rock, Taker, HBK and HHH. Where as now the current WWE just cares about making Cena the top guy and could not care less about anyone else. They gave Punk the longest title reign of the last 25 years yet he still was always lower on the card than Cena grudge matches. How can anyone invest in the WWE champion when he is lower on the card than John Cena

there really was no star tag team during their time. Even the L.O.D was out of steam. By the time the N.A.O came around they were irrelevant, but they were tag champs in a very poor era.

They were 3x tag team champions and successfully defended the belts at WM 15 and WM 13. They had the longest reign in over 8 years back in 1998. They eventually lost the belts to the new age outlaws after interference from Chyna back on raw in dec 18, 1998

I would not play a joke like that on Mark Henry. I'd live in fear of the day his leg heals and he can chase me XD
