During his appearance on a recent episode of the Under The Mat Radio Show, ECW Original and House of Hardcore promoter Tommy Dreamer spoke about a number of topics. Below are some of the highlights from the interview.
On drinking Undertaker’s tobacco spit and where it ranked on craziest things he’s done: “Yeah it was gross, it was real. I got $7,000 to do it and I got to wrestle the Undertaker three to four times. So I think anyone might do the same. Yeah that was rough and it was LIVE. The scaffold match back in the day was pretty crazy for one. Sandman made it two. I’m scared of heights, three. Brian Lee choked me with the electrical power from the entire building and after the match the guy told his that he is not sure how we were not electrocuted to death on the top of that scaffold. The scaffold swayed, I don’t know I’ve done a lot of crazy things.”
On what he said about Brock Lesnar and other things that didn’t air on the ECW Unauthorized special on the WWE Network: “That was an edited version first of all. That was the first time we’ve (himself, Paul Heyman, Dudleys, and Taz) all been together since ECW One Night Stand 2005. I’ve said it before, Paul (Heyman) has screwed me over many times more than anybody ever has but we’ve had it out but Paul deserves all the credit in the world. It was the best times in people’s lives and I’ve said it myself, I learned a lot about the person I am and why I am what I am. I experienced loss, a lot of people tell me what ECW meant to them (Blah Blah Blah) but ECW didn’t have to go away but it did, it was like a death to me. One day you’re on top of the world and then next you’re unemployed.
“The ending I can tell you was different, we ended up fighting (as he laughs) because Paul started bringing up Brock Lesnar and I said, ‘who cares about Brock Lesnar I’ll fight him for real, I’ll fight him in UFC or WWE, who gives a s–t.’ Then Devon said, ‘yeah Paul, how you going to do that?’ Then Paul starting to keep trying to rap it up and go back to Brock when they said, ‘Uhh guys you can wrap this up whenever you’d like.'”
