Earlier this week, Todd Pettengill spoke to the guys over at the Two Man Power Trip podcast, and explained the way he landed his gig with WWE. The former radio DJ also shared a funny story involving WWE Chairman Vince McMahon, and more. Check out the his comments below.
On how he signed with the WWF in ‘93:
“Vince and Linda McMahon were fans of the radio show(WPLJ radio). I got a call out of the blue, Linda called first, and said, ‘Vince and I were talking and love what you do on the radio, do you have an interest in wrestling?’ I said, ‘I really don’t watch.’ Vince said, ‘That’s perfect. I want somebody with an outside perspective. I want someone new, who is a fan, with a microphone.’ It all stemmed from the radio show and then I went to the audition in Stamford and was lucky enough to get the gig.”
On asking Vince McMahon for a “courtesy flush”:
“After the interview process, I went to the bathroom and somebody walked in while I was in another stall and proceeded to do a little damage. I asked for a courtesy flush. I didn’t know who it was, but I heard him laugh. He said, ‘I think this is going to work out.’ If I knew it was him, I can’t tell you 100% if I would have said that. Probably not. I guess it was good that I didn’t know it was him.”
Todd will make his return to WWE television on Sunday, at NXT TakeOver: In Your House.
