Talk is Jericho Recap w/ Harvey Wippleman – Managing Giant Gonzalez, Buying The Rock His First Car, Women’s Championship Reign, More!
Jericho welcomes Harvey Wippleman to the show.
Wippleman has been working in the wrestling business since 1979, and for the WWE since 1989. These days he performs several duties and runs errands for WWE, such as returning rent-a-cars and picking up food for Executives and top talents.
He says that Vince McMahon’s famous words are, “There’s no job too big or too small.” Wippleman truly believes that statement, and says he tries to do every task that he is given as long as it’s reasonably within his skill set.
Wippleman says he only does things for people he works for and people he likes. If he doesn’t like you, he’s simply going to be ‘too busy’ to help you unless the company makes him. He mentions that he’ll never do a thing for a guy like Vader, because he’s a lying, piece of crap who couldn’t work and didn’t draw 2 cents in the business.
Wippleman spent some time as a top Manager in WWE. He managed top talents such as Giant Gonzalez and Sid Vicious, and Wippleman informs that Gonzalez was the biggest man he had ever seen. Jericho agrees and says that Gonzalez was even bigger than The Big Show. Wippleman can remember having to get up at 4 AM on several occasions to bring Gonzalez food because he had severe diabetes and needed to eat every 2 hours.
