Anderson mentions that he was slightly concerned when his wife told him she was pregnant with their latest child. He was happy but at the same time, more kids means more bills. Gallows laughs and says he was thrilled when he heard that Anderson’s wife was pregnant again. He knows that Anderson will have to wrestle until he’s 70 to pay for all those kids and he wants to wrestle forever because he loves it so much so it’s a perfect match.
Gallows informs that he and Anderson came up with their characters on Southpaw Regional Wrestling, and he thinks the fans loved those characters because they were delivering their own lines and not something that was scripted for them by WWE. Anderson says promos are too scripted in WWE today, and the most successful promos are often ones where talents take chances and sway off script.
In Anderson’s opinion A.J. Styles is the best wrestler in the world right now. Neither Gallows or Anderson had met Styles before he arrived for work in Japan and they teamed up in the Bullet Club, so they didn’t know what to expect from him. Luckily, he was a great guy and they bonded almost immediately.
Anderson mentions that Big Show called them the ‘last cowboys’ recently, referring to their old school approach to the business. They still like to go out for drinks after shows and have fun on the road, and their in-ring approach is quite old school as well. Gallows says he would have loved to work in the 1970s because he thinks they would have been quite successful during that era.
That sums up this week’s episode of The Steve Austin Show Unleashed. You can listen to the show yourself anytime here, and I’ll catch ya next week for another recap!
