What was a young Bryan Danielson like to be around, along with Donovan Morgan and Mike Modest. You will hear tons of stories on his early days working in some of the bigger indy companies in the states like ROH, Chikara, TNA and of course Pro Wrestling Iron. What was it like to be in the ring for Simon when he faces Japanese Legend Misawa and Ogawa.
How did Simon land a job working for WWE and how did he get signed to NXT? We talk all about his training days at the Performance Center. What was it like working with Dusty Rhodes, Terry Taylor, Steve Keirn, Billy Kidman, Norman Smiley, Matt Bloom and the infamous Bill Demott. How did he get his name and more importantly how did the The Vaudevillains come to be. You will hear stories on every major name in NXT as Simon has some of the best locker room stories covering the early days of NXT.
I loved the fact that Simon had stories for every question that I asked and they were all amazing. We go into great detail about his entire NXT and WWE run on Monday Night Raw and Smackdown. What went wrong for Simon to get himself released? Was it his fist fight with Sin Cara at Smackdown? You will hear exclusive stories on the fight never told before along with some candid pictures!! Did he get released because it could been about the time he approached Vince McMahon with a creative idea, when Bray Wyatt told him at all costs, not to ever talk to Vince because Bray felt that his personality would clash with Vince’s. Did he have heat for his debut match with Enzo and Cass on the PPV where Enzo took a bad bump? Simon talks in great detail about that match and why he felt it was not his fault. In fact Simon talks all about his feelings on Enzo and why he feels he is not a good worker and gives tons of stories to back up his claims. It’s safe to say after hearing this that Enzo and Simon will never be exchanging holiday cards any time soon, as Simon does not like him particularly very much. Trust me he pulls no punches during this part of the interview. Simon talks about his programs in the WWE with the other tag teams and how the gimmick got started and who helped them behind the scenes. In this business there is always a struggle getting yourself over and there is always backstage obstacles in your way, wether its with the office, other talent or just creative. We touch on everything on why the tag team never really got off the ground in the fashion it should have. Were they heels or babyfaces, and what were they told to do in the ring to get themselves over as heels, when they were clearly being cheered. Simon also talks about his interactions with the people behind the scenes in the company some are very positive and a few are not, but he was open and honest and backs up his reasoning for not agreeing with a few people like Terry Taylor. You will hear on advice that Terry would give him after he would come thru Gorilla and why at times he didn’t agree with some of it. We talk all about PWG, ROH rumors, and all of the talent that he shared the locker room with. If you love hearing current stories on NXT and WWE you will love this interview.
