Frank Dee and Atlee Greene shoot the breeze with WWE Hall of Fame inductee Teddy Long about his career from Jim Crockett Promotions, WCW, and the WWE. Teddy has accomplished a lot in the wrestling business from being a referee to managing some of the biggest names in the industry.
Teddy Long is best known for his time in WWE where he went on to be the longest reigning SmackDown General Manager. This Friday, Teddy Long will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame. The ceremony will air live on the WWE Network.
Which wrestlers impress Teddy Long?
Does he believe Kayfabe can still work today?
Who does he want to induct him into the Hall of Fame?
What did Vince McMahon’s first impressions of Teddy’s skills on the microphone?
Check out the interview below as Frank Dee and I go down memory lane with the MacMilitant himself. Holla, Holla, Holla, Playa.
I recently interviewed Brutal Bob Evans at What Culture.com where he shares his thoughts on topics such as Destination America, the success of Micheal Bennett, putting Cheeseburger through a table, and his initial criticism of the company. Here some highlights:
On Being an ROH Critic: The line I use is that I used to hate this company, now it’s the only place I want to be. I think it was the change in philosophy on both our parts. In other words, I think we needed to be a little more open-minded, and I wasn’t open-minded.
Will Briscoe vs. Lethal Deliver: I’ve actually pulled both guys aside and told them there are people who don’t think you’re going to have the match that Ring Of Honor is promising. I think both guys are looking at it as a challenge to really step up their game and compete at that kind of level where they’re going to have that type of match.
I personally want to thank Bob for taking the time to talk to me. You can check out the entire interview here at What Culture.com
