X-Pac opens today’s show by discussing the death of Luke Perry. He says Perry was such a great guy and a wonderful father. He notes that most people didn’t really know the guy, they just knew his work. He was a huge wrestling fan and even helped produce the recent Ric Flair “30 for 30” documentary.
X-Pac also sends his condolences to the friends and family of comedian Brody Stevens, who was a great person and a friend to the wrestling community.
King Kong Bundy passed away this past week as well, and X-Pac was sad to hear that news. He notes that he might not have been great friends with Bundy and he openly criticised Bundy’s last run in WWE, but there was no denying Bundy’s presence and the impact he made on the business. He was known for his one-liners and was fun to be around, and X-Pac hopes he rests in peace.
X-Pac comments on WWE’s release of Arn Anderson. Apparently Anderson was fired for allowing Alicia Fox to wrestle intoxicated at a recent live event. X-Pac says he’s not making excuses for Anderson, but he’s from a different generation when performers would regularly wrestle intoxicated. X-Pac notes that he wrestled drunk or high on multiple occasions, and lots of other performers did as well. It was simply accepted at that time.
