E&C’s Pod of Awesomeness Recap w/ Zack Ryder – Most Expensive Action Figure, Current Position in WWE, Lack of Stables in Wrestling, More!
Christian wasn’t sure how long that faction would last, so he didn’t want to cut his hair for that group. He mentions that he wanted that change to mean something from a singles perspective. He admits that he was too inexperienced at the time to realize that he should have cut his hair and made a complete transformation after he and Edge split up.
A listener writes into the show and asks Ryder and Christian to name their Mount Rushmore of professional wrestling. Ryder says his personal favourites would be Hulk Hogan, The Ultimate Warrior, “Macho Man” Randy Savage and Steve Austin. Christian notes that trying to pick four guys is so hard, and his list could change every five minutes. He points out that The Rock, Ric Flair, Shawn Michaels and a few others could be included there as well.
Another listener writes into the show and asks Christian if he thinks WWE needs more stables. Christian would like to see more stables in WWE, noting that someone like Ryder could really benefit from a stable. Ryder notes that some of the most iconic characters in wrestling history were part of stables such as the Four Horsemen, DX and NWO. Christian argues that the women’s division could use some stables as well.
A listener writes into the show and asks Christian how wrestlers do laundry on the road. He informs that he separates the clean and dirty clothes with plastic bags on short trips of 3-4 days. On the longer overseas trips things can be more difficult. Sometimes they get lucky and there are machines at the stadium or in the hotels, but if not, they have to find a laundry service somewhere.
