Show says that Braun Strowman has been doing terrific work as well, and has been dramatically improving in the ring as of late. He worked with Strowman for a while and was able to pass along a few pointers to the younger big man. He says that Strowman is such an incredible athlete and he’s very powerful and explosive, so he simply told Strowman to slow down in the ring and make each move count.
Show says that he still loves working the live events on Friday Saturday and Sunday, but he’s not a fan of television tapings at all. He says that television tapings are, “…long, useless, time-wasting bullshit days.” He doesn’t like waiting around the building all day listening to some of the creative team’s bad ideas, and sometimes he’s not even utilized on the show so that feels like a waste of time to him.
Show talks about the differences working with Hulk Hogan compared to Randy Savage. His first big program in WCW was with Hogan, and most of their matches were called on the fly. Savage was Show’s second big program, and Savage liked to script out every match in its entirety on notepads. This was a big adjustment for Show, but Savage was determined to not have any surprises during his matches.
Jericho asks Show what he thinks is the worst segment he was ever involved in. In Show’s opinion, the worst thing he has ever done is when Vince McMahon made him do the Baby New Year segment.
That sums up today’s episode of Talk is Jericho. You can listen to the show yourself anytime here, and I’ll catch ya next week for another recap!
