I have to say this there's only two books in my entire life that I've read more than once the old man in the -- Ernest Hemingway. And your first book. Oh yeah everywhere -- look that's that's pretty good company right there. You know it was actually Hemingway who led did battle -- MTV's celebrity death match. And I remember going into the atmosphere Pia national and really give my all to the voice I was you know. -- to be one of finest best. So who also agreed that matches the -- on the lines in there you know like to tore off you know the my competitors arms and bases that said. Farewell. Farewell to our. And then you know him. And -- -- there was this. Clearly -- from the but from the going to. As I guess we know who met bell -- It was very good but I -- I guess says really giving my all that I have the guys in the studio is that there have been celebrity's actually committed to their own voices in this city including you. Yeah this is one. -- it feel like. But it does not everybody looks -- this is -- to save my sense of honor that you do that I really I really enjoyed it really did. Chosen Tuesday. Unless they're real quick talking a little wrestling -- I really wanna get into your comedy career. And what your influences were but I -- to talk to you briefly about what's been going on right now on in the WW. And you've been very vocal on Twitter. You chastise them. For what was going on the royal rumble. And you haven't been very happy. About the CM punk thing to dinner Brian -- non push. Would what's going on how well you notice. Unfortunately. I just says invalid silence. Last post. A -- says everything enemies say. And it seemed to have be overkill. Some might -- guilty about it ligament honestly say I did say that. I -- -- do it. But maybe they have maybe you know best maybe yours -- wading they would sit on the -- -- I think timing is everything and you know he can you can. He could make people wait too long whether they would be lose interest so. I'm just -- count on those people in charge knowing more than I do. And the and hope for a great -- -- I'm sure there will put on a great Russell Branyan they use. -- into the net you know they have been network. And so even people who are you know angrier or not. Well built by the current product go back in -- is that I would have -- happy but I ordered the network plus side. It's -- they're going to be -- just five and and wrestle mania will be. A great -- You know we have great event but I think he needs -- back from you know from from. There's now is as -- guys you know like you know a little bit about what's going. And I think. -- it's been -- is. Hopefully hopefully some of the elements we're -- We're seen it was -- Well they certainly were seen. And I ever wants to know how your TV news. Our you know what went to throw bricks serenity the for -- conclusion that they -- when the rubble. And so I didn't really think that was sort of my TV -- in jeopardy. When it became clear that he didn't. It was administered. You know what outside the -- -- brick. Making commandment my kids existed in dollars and put the -- is TV and so I ordered it on another practice that. And with TV in the house. Which has less to break. You know low less fragile items surrounded and then I think my wife thought it was like the 1970s. I would throw it through it like papers would escape the dangerous gases in the explosion. -- -- -- Tried to appeal to make kids who have their own YouTube channel -- who has probably -- -- it's. And the editors Kevin anti climactic I went outside it is later was that side by. Former Yankee backup catcher Sal Fasano and and mask my daughter's TV which was in the work anymore so. I think I think. People he did technically smashed TV. It was a little side of protest and my kids should have felt this so got to. Elaine as it was. It is still got a lot of -- Which is but it -- didn't stop my my youngest chastising me sound quality was terrible. You mention -- WW network and I think it's fantastic. For example I'm a huge. Yacht sort of watching an 88 and -- really the biggest time for me in my life was that attitude era. With yourself and so called on the rock and DX and all that and there's so much. Great person so many great performances from you in particular. On the microphone and that's what really captures me at this point is who's great on the -- on so it's not a surprise to see you transition over. To stand up comedy considering how good you were on the -- and people like -- -- are trying to transition and do little standup comedy but it's little different for him I'm do you ever talked to him about that. About the standup comedy and transitioning. -- you know. Adult was an open invite. Reform would be anytime our you know our paths cross certain -- They -- trip. It's a shame he was even taken off the last paper viewer assume them to issue doesn't mean. Minneapolis. I think you know there's there's guys -- now we're here because of these shows are going well. And obviously up -- Quite frankly you will be over one it's about -- right now is the one in -- was so would appreciate help but they've been that the show has been. You know doing really well and now we've got a lot -- address social agenda jump on board the book shows without actually having a show you know like. These -- open through Q today. And then so. I think that's a little bit of a slap in the face for guys like me -- and dolls themselves you know -- -- out -- off nights in an open mics. Is trying to get ten minutes here -- minutes there in my case should I -- did those things you know went out worked nonstop. And later worked in in little places we're out of time the audience is trying to tread a you have -- my -- my stories down. And so -- they get on the stage you know it's sort of got. You know get in the hundreds of hours. Experience behind me and I've made a lot of mistakes in front of the smaller crowds in so. When I get out there you know and on the featured guy that silly guy. I I over perform you know people don't know what to expect and they get a lot better shows they're expecting.
