Chuck Palumbo Recalls His Biker Character In WWE

Former WWE World Tag Team Champion Chuck Palumbo recently spoke to WrestlingInc., and reflected on the biker gimmick he used in WWE. During the interview, Palumbo revealed how the gimmick came to be, and more. Check out the highlights below.

On the biker gimmick he used in WWE:

“At the time, I built this motorcycle that was featured in a magazine, and I was talking to Vince [McMahon] and I showed him. And he said, ‘Well, why aren’t we doing this?’ I said, ‘Well, it never came up,’ and that’s how it all kind of started. I started doing vignettes. It was an extension of who I was, per se, motorcycles, working on bikes [and] wrenching. That’s basically it. A lot of the ideas in wrestling, they happen in seconds.”

Says he never bonded with WWE Chairman Vince McMahon over motorcycles:

“We never rode bikes together. We lived on opposite sides of the country, but we were always friendly,” Palumbo noted. “He’s always been very friendly to me. Always had an open door policy with me. We spoke a lot. He always treated me very well.”

On life after wrestling:

“I do everything from home renovations to home flips to the car building and the motorcycle building. So I work with my hands a lot, in the trades. If I’m not working in the shop on a project, then I’m working on a property. Chuck of All Trades on YouTube, that’s my little baby. That’s my little project. It’s just simple, raw. It just captures me and what I do on a daily basis. Right now, the project I’m working on is a home restoration from a home here in San Diego, built in 1924… We brought it down to the studs and rebuilt it, and then I built a shop and then a new shop on that property too. And eventually, next year, we will film another car show, cars and motorcycles inside that shop. So I’m getting that outfitted now for next year, and then we’ll do another show featuring the projects, the cars, the motorcycles [and] anything we decide to build.”
