X-Pac 1, 2, 360 Recap w/ Tom Prichard – Evolution Recap, Training Vince & Shane McMahon, Surprises from WWE Developmental, More!
Prichard informs that he helped train Shane McMahon to wrestle back in the day. X-Pac points out that one of Shane’s first matches was against him at WrestleMania and they had 25 minutes. He points out that Shane really brought it in that match. Prichard points out that it was a lot of fun training Shane, and he also helped train Vince for his first match with Steve Austin as well and that was also a cool experience.
Prichard informs that Sometimes Vince would want to train at 11PM in the night. McMahon caught him with a few stiff punches but it was very cool to be able to help train the boss for his very first match.
Prichard is asked about his stance on inter gender wrestling. He says he doesn’t really have a problem with it today. The women today are very tough and if you put them in a match with the right guy, and if you tell the right story that makes sense, it can be done.
X-Pac asks Prichard about his time training wrestlers at WWE developmental, and if he’s surprised by any of his trainee’s success. Prichard says he’s really happy for Tyler Breeze. Breeze came into WWE developmental as a really nice kid and sometimes nice doesn’t always work out in the wrestling business. He knew that guys like Rollins, Ambrose, and Reigns would be stars, but Big E’s breakout has been a surprise as well since he spent 4 years in developmental.
