Ricardo Talks Heat And Why He Left WWE
In a recent interview with Busted Open Radio Ricardo Rodriquez gave further insight in to his WWE release and heat with Triple H.
So when I was working with the tryouts and being extras. We would do spots and I would flip around and take bumps like a clothesline and shooting stars. Triple H would call me a bumblebee; I was in Puerto Rico not too long ago and I saw Savio Vega and he used to call him a bumblebee and then I found out he called Super Crazy a bumblebee. He was a referring to an American guy doing flips. He would always make this comment about me being Mexican and Del Rio being Mexican. I and Del Rio use to call ourselves stupid names but when someone else would call us those names we would go whoa hold the (explicative) up.
Well, it wasn’t just one thing. It was a serious of events that I was like ah, just screw it. A lot of was A) they had nothing for me. Del Rio and I kept pitching ideas to bring us back together. We thought we did pretty well together and we eventually knew they were going to split us up. One day they came up to us and told us ‘Okay this is what we are doing’. We’re like oh ok, thank you. It wasn’t just that though they had issues with money, I wasn’t making money anymore. If you talk to anyone from WWE they will tell you that you make your money on house shows and not on TV, your money is on the house show. . I got unofficially sent down and I got hurt by one of their football players and I got punished for it, which I weird and I took all these things into consideration and I realized this is not fun for me. I have been an extra for WWE and they know what I do backstage. Regal and I were running the tryouts for the extras so there is nobody in the world can I tell me I never had passion for wrestling. I was always the 1st person in the ring. WWE in a weird way made me hate wrestling so I got very bitter and I realized I got to stop this and I realized it was the company. So I woke up and said I am not coming in. Yeah I called the office and told them I am not coming in; I want a release.
WWE Going After Former Writer?
WWE is reportedly upset with former writer Kevin Marshall for being so open about his time in WWE in interviews, and may be seeking to sue him.
All writers sign a confidentiality agreement that forbids them from being too specific on what they worked on and what exactly their job entailed. While many ex-writers do podcasts, Marshall was only recently released and apparently has been stirring things up.
Here is one of his recent interviews:
Stephanie McMahon Discusses Her Heel Character
In a recent interview with ChicagoNow.com Stephanie McMahon discussed playing the Authority role:
“My husband and I are involved in a fun storyline where we represent the ‘evil owners’. Playing the bad guy is so much fun for me and I’m not sure why. But it’s very impactful when I do the community service such as the anti-bully campaign. I have the opportunity to tell these kids about entertainment versus reality. Are whole goal is to give these kids tools to stand up to bullying,” she said
“It’s funny when I get to show footage during a speaking engagement such as Hijack Raw that happened in Chicago. I will often show footage that features my character in villainous light and people laugh. The speech I’m giving is in my executive voice and me as a person. Seeing me in character is a complete opposite take of who I am outside of the ring. It’s fun and enjoyable and at the end of the day that’s what it’s all about.”
