Jake Roberts, Kizarny, and Shawn Daivari interview recaps



from Susan Frizzell:

Recently Low Blow Radio and The Unrated Hour joined forces to present The Unrated Hour’s 100TH SHOW!!!!! This very special podcast includes in depth interviews with pro wrestling legend Jake “The Snake” Roberts, former WWE and TNA star Shawn Daivari, former WWE star Kizarny, and more! The following are several hilights…

JAKE “THE SNAKE” ROBERTS…

When asked about his future in the business Roberts said…

“I think it’s about time I retire, eve though I hate to say it. I can’t do the things I once could. I have some health problems I can’t mess with. Of all the strange, queer things to happen to you, my tendons in my hands are shortening so my fingers are curling up. The only way to correct that is to have major surgery on all fingers and I’m just not ready to do that today. On top of that ,y lungs are screwed up from genetics. Kids… never ever smoke a cigarette or some dope. Don’t do anything stupid like that. Your lungs are very important. There’s nothing like trying to do something you want to do but can’t because you can’t breathe.”

When asked about the rumor of running for public office with Linda McMahon Robert’s squashed the rumor by stating…

“I am not running for public office with Linda. I thought about it but it’s not going to happen.”

When asked about wrestling today and its up to date presentation, Roberts replied…

“To me that’s still not wrestling. I’m not old school. I’m from the school that burnt down before they built the old school. Take a guy sitting in the ring with another guy in a headlock for 15 minutes and the crowd wanting to run in the ring and kill him. That’s wrestling. There’s no heat involved today. It’s all about flash and dance. Sort of like movies today. It’s all about the visual effects.”

Other topics Roberts brought up included…

Drugs

Family Life

WWE’s PG Rating

TNA’s product

ROH’s product

Advice for getting into the business

And more

SHAWN DAIVARI…

When asked what lead u to his TNA release Daivari said (also very revealing as far as TNA’s balance of power is concerned)…

“Well when I came into TNA I had a very good relationship with Jeff Jarrett who seemed to have more or less run things at the time. If I ever needed anything he could get it done. Once he got pushed out of the door things changed significantly. His job was divided among 10-15 different people, man of which I didn’t have the relationship like I had with Jeff. I signed a 2 year contract assuming that the entire time my boss would be Jeff which wasn’t the case. Management and I didn’t see eye to eye on some things and that’s how things ended.”

When asked about the use of veterans in TNA Daivari said…

“Well a common misconception is that the veterans in TNA may demand management to put them over which in reality isn’t the case at all. I never witnessed that during my entire stay with TNA. If a veteran goes over it’s because of creative. I remember when Kevin Nash was doing an angle with Samoa Joe and really wanted to put Joe over. Creative kept booking it wrong and Nash eventually went over, despite what he wanted.

Other topics Daivari discussed included…

WWE’s PG Rating

TNA’s product

Prediction for “they” ay B4G and Dixie’s announcement for Impact this week

ROH’s product

And more

KIZARNY…

When asked about what he’s up to today former WWE star Kizarny elaborated about many aspects of art such as writing, painting, and acting as well as wrestling all over the world and considering working in Japan in the future.
