Ross opens today’s show speaking about the Women’s Royal Rumble match. He likes that the rules for the women’s match will be the same as for the men’s match, because he thinks this will make things a lot easier for fans to follow. He gives credit to WWE for continuing to build women’s wrestling, and he thinks this makes the wrestling business a better place for female competitors as a whole.
Ross welcomes author Pat Laprade to the show. Laprade is the author of “Sisterhood of the Squared Circle”, and he’s recently completed his latest book, “Mad Dog: The Maurice Vachon Story”. In this book he takes a look back at the life and career of WWE Hall of Famer “Mad Dog” Vachon. You can purchase the book on Amazon and trough all other major retailers.
Ross welcomes X-Pac to the show.
X-Pac informs that he has his own podcast, X-Pac 1, 2, 360, which has episodes released each Wednesday. He feels very blessed to have had this opportunity and although he felt like he was always a pretty good guest on other people’s podcasts, he wasn’t sure if he’d be a good host. He thinks he’s learned fairly quickly and has a great time hosting the show each week.
X-Pac was famously released by WCW during the attitude era and FedEx delivered his release papers to his home. He was very angry about being released in that fashion, but he was so fired up to go to WWE after that and prove WCW and Eric Bischoff wrong.
