Johnny The Bull Says Shane McMahon Was Only One To Push Him When He Transitioned To WWE After WCW Sale

Johnny The Bull, who along with Big Vito LoGrasso was known as The Mamalukes tag-team in WCW, recently appeared as a guest on The Two Man Power Trip Of Wrestling podcast for an in-depth interview covering all things pro wrestling.

During the appearance on the popular pro wrestling program, the former WCW star spoke about Shane McMahon being the only one who would push him when he transitioned to WWE after the sale of WCW.

Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview where he touches on these topics with his thoughts.

On what he is doing now: “I’m a mortgage broker. I do residential loans for purchases and refinances and I’m a vice president of my division at Federal Savings Bank. I kind of worked my way out of it (wrestling). I was going overseas. I would come home, like 2008, and I would have nothing to do for two weeks. I started working for a buddy of mine’s broker shop. I started writing ones for other wrestlers like Charlie Haas, Umaga, and Bobby Lashley just to name a few. I’ve probably done like 20 wrestler’s loans. Slowly, my last match was in 2015 vs The Hurricane. I ran the show and brought all the guys. After that, I’ve been doing mortgages full time. It’s stressful, but not as painful.”

On Shane McMahon was the only one who would push him: “Shane and I became good friends when I went to WWE. Every time he was at the show, I would win. When he wasn’t there, I would lose. There was politics. There were certain people in the booking committee who didn’t like me and I didn’t like them, but when Shane McMahon was there, he trumped all of them because he’s Shane McMahon. That’s why when they put us together as the FBI, we were getting pushed big time wrestling Brock, Undertaker, Kurt Angle, and all the top guys. When Shane left, they broke us up.”
