Hey John, big fan, long time reader, blah blah...
Anyhoo, my question was this. I remember back in WCW I remember a time when Roddy Piper put together a stable of wrestlers to battle the NWO or something for Wargames but ended up teaming with the 4 Horsemen. (My recollection is a bit cloudy on the exactness of the situation.)
I also remember Piper fighting a group of guys and choosing three to team with him. Were you one of the ones chosen for that team and if so, why didn't they/you fight at Wargames?

I've always gotten along with Steve. We're not buddy, buddy, but we respect eachother. Typhoon is too busy to spend much time on a computer. He's working hard at his job and raising his family at this time. He has a good sense of humor, and can laugh at himself. Shockmaster was unfortunate but he doesn't lose sleep over it. Yes, I was one of those guys. You know our business is so stab you in the back I don't know what happened. It could have been jealousy that Roddy, myself, and two new no-names were getting put in a PPV main event. We got taken off a week before. 'Quake

Man, thanks for answering the question. Thats a bunch of BS to be honest with you.
Do you remember who the other two guys were? I remember one did boxing with Roddy with some seriously worked punches. (To quote my cousin at the time, "If they connected with those, they would be dead. lol)
Heys, 'Quake.....if that is your real name (yeah, had to do it at lease once....sorry.)
Anywho.....I was just wondering, why would 'Rowdy' Roddy Piper when he was doing commentary refer to you as 'worthog'? Not sure if you even remember that, but he did. You never looked worthog-ish to me.
Oh, and he called The Barbarian 'walrus' and always backed it up with choo choo j'obb.
Heenan was Boobies....but, yeah, that makes sense.
Who did you like working for more, Vince McMahon or Eric Bischoff?

I was just wondering, what was Bruce Prichard like? Of what you saw, what did he do to get into the Brother Love character? Did Bruce seem to enjoy playing the character? I just find it interesting, being how outrageous the gimmick was.
Also, I know he does backstage stuff these says, but did he have any other jobs at that time, or was he just in an on-air role and nothing more?

In case you haven't seen Backlash, Rosey and Hurricane just won the tag titles. What are your current feelings on Rosey? Could you or would you do his current gimmick? Earthquake and Hurricane, new Natural Disasters, now as superheroes!
Also, back in the day when you guys wrestled jobbers a lot, what was the relationship like between the jobbers and the real stars? Did you travel together, were they often the subject of pranks, etc?

its not a question but id just thought id enjoy sharing the funniest match you had it was against hercules. You gave him a big earthqauke, then a minute later you hit him with some more. Jesse ventura said thats what you call an aftershock.

I forget the other two guys names. I don't worry about what Piper says. I most enjoyed working with Jake Roberts. I would have liked a long program with Undertaker. My brilliant ideas only went as far as suggesting I team with Tugboat. I wrestled one of my students in what would turn out being my last WWE match. They weren't interested in him because of his age(31). He had the most potential of my students. WOW! MY old sumo pics. If you don't know me by now.....I hate Bischoff. I wish I had never left Vince. I don't know if Bruce enjoyed Brother Love or not. He seemed to. I don't think he's with them now as his wife, too is battling cancer. I know nothing about Sid's tights. That would make him a true wrestlecrapper though. Stan Hansen, and Bruiser Brody were the stiffest I worked, but there is a good reason for that. I was new to wrestling, and in Japan where I wrestled them, they were the top heels, so they had to be sure the "green boy" sold for them. I would try my best with whichever gimmick made me money. So yes, I'd try to do the super-hero gimmick. Back in "the day" the "jobbers" usually did not dress with us, but they ate with us and talked with us backstage. Some were shy, others that had been around a lot were good friends with us. I always talked with them and respected them, they made me look good. Other "stars" didn't care about them. 'Quake
