The Ross Report Recap w/ Pete Gas – From Fan to Superstar, Working with Rock/Austin, Shane McMahon’s WWE Return, More!
He informs that he was very determined to pay his due in the business, because he understood the frustration of long-time performers who were left off of WrestleMania cards in favour of the Mean Street Posse. Unfortunately for him, the only way he could pay his dues at that point was to get his ass kicked in the ring every night.
Gas feels that his WWE release came at an unfortunate time because after 3 years of working for the company, he felt like he was finally getting the hang of how to work a good match in the ring and cut a good promo on the mic.
Gas informs that he and the Mean Street Posse was only given Vince McMahon’s seal of approval once during his 3-year run in WWE, but he knows that if McMahon wasn’t happy with their work they wouldn’t have lasted there more than a couple of days. He believes that McMahon tried not to speak with them because if other talents saw that, they would have had even more heat in the locker room.
Gas says that working with The Rock and Steve Austin was great. Austin always gave them a hard time in a joking manner, and they were able to work with him in the ring on several occasions. One of Gas’ biggest regrets is not being able to take the ‘Stone Cold Stunner’ better, because his inability to take that move correctly led to Austin not wanting to work with them as much. He says that The Rock was always a perfectionist and he’s sure that’s why Rock has seen so much success in life over the last decade.
