The Godfather Recalls An Embarrassing Infamous Incident From Early In His WWE Career

As noted, WWE Hall Of Fame legend Charles “The Godfather” Wright appeared as a guest on a recent edition of the Scheduled For Two Falls podcast for an in-depth interview covering all things pro wrestling.

During his appearance on the show, the former WWE Superstar known as Papa Shango, among other characters, spoke about missing his cue in an infamous spot from WrestleMania VII early in his WWE career.

Featured below is an excerpt from the interview where the pro wrestling legend talks about this particular topic.

That night I never heard anything from anybody at all. I was so involved in what I was doing at the time, working with Hogan, Sid, Warrior; I wasn’t really concerned. The problem is that they knew I was green so they were going, ‘Don’t go until we tell you to go.’ And so, for whatever reason I got the cue late. I didn’t know. I’m there at the curtain like a track star getting ready to run and it was a long way.

So, then they say, ‘GO! GO! GO! GO’ and I went. Once I got there I was like, ‘Oh sh** what’s going on’ because I wasn’t watching the monitors. I never heard anything about it for years and I mean years later. I’m doing autograph signings and people are like, ‘Hey what happened when you missed the cue’ and I’m like, ‘No I didn’t, what do you mean?’ So then when I started checking into it, I’m like, ‘Oh sh**!’ I never heard it from one person, not even Taker and you know why? Because it wasn’t my fault. I never even knew about it.
