Here is a recap of Jason Knight’s recent appearance on “In Your Head Wrestling Radio” Highlights provided by Vic Schiavone.
Hosts Jack E. Jones and One Inch Biceps welcomed “The Sexiest Man Alive” Jason Knight to IYH Wrestling Radio for a marathon 3-hour shoot interview. Highlights included:
What were his feelings concerning the WWE version of ECW?
“The day that I was called to do the first ECW television…the first thing was that guy that was dressed like a zombie…and the guy walked out and Hak walked out with his imitation Sandman music and beat up that zombie guy and I just walked out, got in my car, and I left…To me that was pretty much the day when wrestling died…it was almost like getting paid to do a cheap porn, and yet you were not allowed to participate. It was horrible.”
What is wrestling missing today?
“All the guys look alike, they all have the same moves, they’re all the same size, they’re all on the same steroids…It used to be back in the day…those guys looked like wrestlers; they acted like wrestlers…The guys can’t work anymore; they’re spot monkeys. It’s a shame; these kids have so much athleticism. If they could work, they could be such great wrestlers; but they’re spot monkeys, that’s all they are. They can’t wrestle, and they’re not tough.”
Are the stories true about the party scene in the original ECW?
“There were some guys and girls that partied…Paul Heyman, he did not run a locker room like a Nazi. He ran a locker room like…if you can do it, and if you can perform, and then come back tomorrow and do TV and interviews, then you were fine.”
Jason also tore through several other topics, including but not limited to:
Who was his first match with?
What is his opinion of John Cena?
What was the most memorable match of his career?
What wrestler did he describe as “The Biggest Waste in Professional Wrestling”?
What was the craziest thing he ever saw backstage?
