X-Pac 1, 2, 360 Recap w/ Bushwhacker Luke – Working with the Hart Family, WWE Career, What Inspired The Bushwhacker Characters? More!
News broke this week that Shaq’s proposed match with Big Show at WrestleMania may be off. X-Pac is really upset by this news because he feels bad for Big Show, who has worked very hard to get himself into the best shape of his career for this match. X-Pac also hopes that WWE has a back-up plan in mind for Big Show, and they should have had Shaq’s appearance guaranteed before going all in on this match.
X-Pac talks about Matt and Jeff Hardy’s departure from TNA. The company has said that they aren’t distraught over talent leaving because they are happy with their young talents and they want to overhaul the roster. X-Pac doesn’t buy that theory at all, and in his opinion, this is simply a case of people jumping off of the Titanic before it sinks.
Reby Hardy sent out a statement where she credited Dixie Carter, saying that at least Carter knew how to speak to people with respect. X-Pac laughs and says, “At least she knew how to bulls*** people.”
X-Pac welcomes Bushwhacker Luke to the show.
Luke informs that he got into the wrestling business after Jim Barnett travelled to Australia in the 1960s. Luke started wrestling in 1962, and started to running shows full time by 1966. He informs that he barely threw a kick in the early days of his wrestling career, because they all worked a European style of wrestling at that time. They did a lot of mat wrestling, and rarely touched the ropes.
Luke eventually made his way to North America in the early 70’s and began wrestling in Canada. He had several bouts with Andre the Giant and ‘Killer’ Kowalski, and it was in Canada that Luke saw some of the craziest ribs he’s ever witnessed.
