In Your Head Wrestling Radio interview hosted by Jack, OneInchBiceps and Barbie Richards with guest Wes Adams, Wednesday November 26th 2008. Full audio interview at http://www.inyourheadonline.com
The guys are joined by Wes who is back wrestling after being a referee in WWE for the last few years, Wes tells the guys he was a wrestler first from 2001 till 2007.
Wes thinks WWE asked him to ref because he was average looking had no tattoos or long hair and didn’t stand out, he says that in WWE referees get a lot of respect which is different from the indies where you are just another guy.
Some calls come in Jason asks has Wes any Mike Knox stories, Wes tells the story of him and Mike on a flight , they were messing and Mike grabbed Wes’s bicep and said it was nice, all the time a woman is watching and Mike asks her did she to grab his bicep, she was scared of him from then on.
A question from the forums asks did Wes ever work overseas, Wes says he worked a European tour which was fun, the crowd is very hot overseas and he liked that.
William calls in and asks what was Vince like, Wes says he didn’t see him much but didn’t have any problems with him. Wes is also asked who is the best performer on Smackdown, Wes singles out Edge for his hard work and great in ring skills and also The Undertaker and Great Kahli who he says is underrated as a performer.
Wes is asked how tough is it being a referee on a scale of 1 to 10, Wes says 10 its very tough you might have to wrestler four matches a night and people don’t realise some refs work as part of the ring crew like Charles Robinson, Jack Doane, and Chad Patton so you have to be up early setting up the ring and up late taking it down.
Jack asks about the infamous match where Wes called an early finish, Wes says John Morrison was legit knocked out and he didn’t realise it till after, if he had known he would have thrown up the x sign for an injured wrestler to get help, Jack asks if this is why he was fired but Wes tells him maybe but he was the greenest ref there by far but doesn’t think that’s why he was fired.
Wes is asked about any rib stories and tells one where he is about to ref a match and Finlay is the agent for it and is in his earpiece giving instructions, Jerry Brisco gets on it and tells Wes to get out of the ring Wes does and Finlay yells at him to get back in, then Jerry tells him to get out again, this goes on for several minutes and Wes can hear Jerry laughing. After the match he gets back and everyone is laughing except for Finlay who is pissed at him.
Wes thinks being fired by WWE is a good thing because he can now wrestle again
Wes thanks the fans for all their support and emails and thanks the guys for getting him on the show.
