my points are good.......Just kidding....
So...feel like talking about your departure from WCW?
what do you want to know
OK, you had just gotten Uncle Guido's leg hold mastered and seemed ready
to move up in WCW...one night at Nitro...apparently there was a disagreement.
Rumors are rampant...what happened?
wanted me to wrestle Jacqueline on a pay per view. Now here I am, just
starting to heat up my leg hold angle, or so I thought, and then I'm told
that my gimmick has gone as far as it could go on the card- meaning first
or second match- and that my dancing was not believable. Well, I look
at that as like we need some goofball whose not over, his gimmicks no
good, and since HE'S not believable lets let him wrestle a girl. How much
sense does that make? A 225 lb. guy against a 125 lb. girl.
So...was it management or someone in particular? If you don't want to
say, I understand...
was just looking out for my future since I only had 4 months left on my
deal, I told them I couldn't do it and then I was told I was in breach

Interesting. The rumor mill was naming Kevin Sullivan.
might have been. Hell, he never did anything with me while I was there.
It's funny, too, because Kevin is such a funny and entertaining guy who
was pretty cool company. But from a business standpoint he never really
did anything for me. And honestly, I don't have any hard feelings about
forward to being in this business for a long time so these four months
are going to be forgotten in the long run. I'm just glad I got out when
I did. But I do appreciate Eric giving me my first shot and giving me
an opportunity to make a name in this sport
