On his memories of Ultimate Warrior: “He was a good guy, excellent and tremendous guy. He was business 100-180 percent and people loved him, he had a good heart. I did shows with him in the WWF and it’s just really sad you know he’s a young guy…he left his wife, his mom, and his precious daughters.”

On working with Ultimate Warrior in the ring: “Me personally no I couldn’t give you any (stories of working with Warrior in the ring) I just was able to observe him at that time but I enjoyed watching his work with a multitude of different guys. When that music hits he would hit the ground running and it was a 150 percent till the end of the match.”

On the way Ultimate Warrior’s passing was different than his other friends in the business: “Well you know you got to take into effect that when he was there he was as popular and as on the same level as Hulk (Hogan) was. The people loved him, they like his look and his energy. I have mixed emotions about…I have a lot of friends and a lot of guys that all of them should be honored..we only going by a few small glimpse of wrestling history”

WWE Superstars Tell Hotel Horror Stories http://www.24wrestling.com/wwe-superstars-tell-hotel-horror-stories/ http://www.24wrestling.com/wwe-superstars-tell-hotel-horror-stories/#comments Wed, 16 Apr 2014 18:27:33 +0000 http://www.24wrestling.com/?p=43818 SBNation.com recently interviewed various WWE talents about their worst ‘hotel horror stories.’ Here are some highlights from:

Jim Ross: “It’s ranged from turning the sheets back and finding someone’s … deposit. Someone actually used the restroom in the bed and then remade the bed. And it was … it wasn’t funny. That was in [New] Jersey, I think. Then the other stuff is simple. I had a hotel room in Manchester, England, that would have been too small for Hornswoggle. I was hanging everywhere. They had a TV with a screen the size of my iPad. They had a desk, that you could work at the desk, but the room was so small, the desk didn’t have room for a chair. So you had to sit on the end of the bed to reach over to your desk to do your work.”

Christian: “I actually had one … It was in, I think, Biloxi, Miss., and the valet lost my rental car. I’ll never forget that. I’m standing there and it’s just like, “Yeah we can’t find it.” I’m like, “How do you lose a rental car?” Took about an hour and a half, but they finally found it. I guess they misplaced it somewhere, but it was pretty funny there for a few minutes.”

Dolph Ziggler: “One time, Motel 6, but the lock had been busted off a bunch of times and it looked like they just kind of painted over it, so the door would just come right open and it was really cheap. Bad part of town, shady characters outside the window — it’s ground-floor — doing who knows what. So I took the chair from the desk and I propped it under the door and I pushed the bed to the other side of the room and I slept sitting up with my clothes on, waiting for the door to come unjammed.”

Lacey Von Erich Talks About Warrior Memories, Wrestlers Battling Demons http://www.24wrestling.com/lacey-von-erich-talks-warrior-memories-wrestlers-battling-demons/ http://www.24wrestling.com/lacey-von-erich-talks-warrior-memories-wrestlers-battling-demons/#comments Wed, 16 Apr 2014 18:26:28 +0000 http://www.24wrestling.com/?p=43815 Former TNA star Lacey Von Erich and her mother Cathie were on Blue Steel Cage Radio with Carmine Sabia to talk about her legendary father Kerry Von Erich and her earliest memories of Warrior, one of Kerry’s best friends. Lacey also talks the pressures of being in a  wrestling locker room, being a third-generation star, and trying to balance acting and other endeavors.

Blue Steel Cage Radio airs Friday nights, 9 PM ET on the VOC Nation Radio Network and is now available for download on vocnation.com. Call in (855) VOC-RADIO.

Becoming a Wrestler: “If you never want to have a family or a wife or time to yourself, and you like being verbally and mentally abused, then you should [get into wrestling]. I say go for it. [That abuse comes more from] the locker room. Definitely the locker room. TNA is very different than WWE. WWE was very political. I wasn’t in there yet. They were like, “You’re a Von Erich. You better be amazing at wrestling,” and things like that. And I wasn’t. I’m more of an actress than I am a wrestler. I’d rather play a character than get hurt on the mat. That’s what I’m better at. I’m better at acting. That’s what I wanted to do. Vince called me. He’s the one that got me into this. He’s the one asked me, “Do you want to be a wrestler? Try to be a diva?” He brought me out and and I signed the contract that night and went into training. I wasn’t expecting it to come as much. It really blew up and they expected so much of me. But then TNA called and they really embraced me as like a family member.”

Wrestlers Battling Demons: “It’s so hard to leave [wrestling]. It’s really hard, once you leave, because no one ever understands what you went through ever. No one will know … People screaming your name or having fans and having those experiences together. Going from hotel to hotel, being on the road together. No one knows those experiences but [other wrestlers]. It really shapes the kind of person you can be. As you can see, in the past, [with] wrestlers, it can either shape you to be a great person and you can learn from it and become a great wife and mother, which I hope I have. Or you can end up self-medicating because of all that. You either get stronger or you get weaker. And luckily I came out of it, unlike the rest of my family, a stronger, better person.”

Her Earliest Memories of The Warrior: “My mom was just telling me that my dad actually trained [Warrior] … I was really young when my dad passed away. I was only 6 years old, but a lot of those memories have been grained in my mind because of the traumatic experience I went through. A lot of things when it comes to wrestling I don’t remember, because when we went to wrestling matches it would be 10, 11 o’clock at night and we would just be asleep in the stands … I remember more of Uncle Jimbo [Warrior] off of wrestling, not actually on the mat with everyone. I remember him at his house, and babysitting us, and things like that. It was like being babysat by my dad. Basically the same. A lot of roughhousing. A lot of fun.”
