WWE Hall of Famer Bushwhacker Luke joins Sean Waltman and his crew on X-Pac 12360 this week, revealing how he tried to help Marty Jannetty, talking about Hulk Hogan‘s latest business venture, and more. Below are highlights from Luke’s interview, plus Sean’s comments on his wrestling future, and last week’s Raw taping in Los Angeles.
Sean on what went down last week after Raw in Los Angeles: Obviously there was controversy over The Rock calling CM Punk. I was up in the gorilla position when all that was going down…I’m not going to say who was on the headset saying, cut his mic, cut his mic. Doesn’t he realize we’re in a lawsuit with this guy? But nobody was really, like mad mad. But it was just like, come on. It was one of those things.
Sean responds to last week’s PWInsider story that he will no longer take independent wrestling bookings after April: That’s not the case. I told my agent, Bill Behrens, he’s awesome…I told him, quit taking wrestling bookings in April. At the end of April I’m done taking bookings for the rest of the year. I’m done wrestling independently this year. I’m done. I’m not retired. I’m not going, OK this is my retirement. It’s just my body is just like, come on.
Highlights from Bushwhacker Luke’s interview:
Luke on Hulk Hogan’s latest venture: At the end of this month Hulk is opening his new place, hopes to have it open a week before, maybe the twentieth of March, hopes to have his new store open in Atlanta, on International Drive…It’s a store like a memorabilia store. But this one he’s got his WWE Viper in there, he’s got an NWO motorbike. It’s going to be really decked out.
Luke reveals how The British Bulldogs treated Outback Jack on the road: They’d dye his hair blue. They’d shave his eyebrows off. In the hotels they’d put the Coke machines over his door, so when he went out of his hotel room drunk he couldn’t get in his room. If he did get in his room his mattress would be in the bathtub, and the bathtub would be filled up with water. They’d give him hell.
Luke says he tried to help Marty Jannetty: I tried to set him up with [Diamond Dallas Page]. I said, I’m going to talk to Dallas. You come down to here and then I’m taking you to Dallas. He’ll do the thing for you and clean you up. We had a weekend up in Louisiana, and on the way back I was going to take him there and get him to do the whole gimmick, and [Marty] didn’t even arrive down there.
Luke also talks about the wrestling documentary he’s working on, changing to a comedy gimmick, and more. Get it all on this week’s brand new episode of AfterBuzz TV’s X-Pac 12360. Two words for you…DOWNLOAD IT!
