"The Living Legend" Larry Zbyszko
- For the third time Zbysko steps into the Epicenter.
It begins with Larry explaining just where Larry Land is: Its wherever
he goes. He then talks about what hes up to which is basically just
relaxing and playing golf for now. - His new book Adventures in Larry
Land has come out and he talks about it. He says that people have responded
well and most readers have told him its very funny. Larry says that hes
never read a wrestling book before, but figured hed make his as a
kid making his dream come true kind of story. - He feels that
wrestlers need to be heroes for children in order to give them something
to look up to. - When talking about some of the stories in the book, Larry
says that he was never one of the party guys (he doesnt drink) and
he was never as crazy as some of the others, but he liked watching the insanity
take place. He names some of the crazy ones: Lou Albano & Mad Dog Vachon
come to mind. - In the book he mentions that he used to rib the guys as he
was a pilot and would often fly some of the boys to the destinations. As
a gag, he would take the plane in a nose dive just to get their reactions.
He says that Tony Atlas freaked out the most. - ESPN classic is showing some
of the old AWA footage and he says that he loves that its on the TV. He wants
to see more as there is some great stuff that they havent shown yet.
- Larry then talks about how he liked to stall before his matches and how
it was part of his character. He then talks about how a lot of the guys do
too many spots these days. - When talking about working an hour long match,
he says its very hard and the guys will have to know what they are doing
and he feels that anything can be done. - The Hardcore Style is bad for wrestling
in his opinion and he feels that maybe the switch to more technical matches
is probably a result of nobody making any money off of doing hardcore, and
Zbysko feels that the real problem in wrestling is the lack of drama. - He
was never a fan of ECW. He didnt like the hardcore aspect & he
felt that Paul Heyman was a bad business man that hurt his wrestlers financially.
- Everybody has an Andre the Giant story, and Zbyskos is a drinking
contest between Andre & Chris Taylor. He says that he was close to Andre,
but his condition depressed him and it really effected him in later years.
- The discussion then shifts to his book again, and he talks about an amazing
story about Kerry Von Erich and his condition when came into play during
a match. Pick up the book to hear the story. Its crazy. - He was asked
to be in the original version of The Hills Have Eyes and hes not sure
if he would have become a big star if he had accepted the role. He then talks
about being offered Jackie Gleasons role in the last Smoky & The
Bandit Movie, but the movie was never made. - Zbysko feels that Vince McMahon
can be beat, but it will be very hard to do. He thinks TNA still needs to
make some big steps forward, but he feels that the WWE isnt that good.
- Hes going to be making some appearances with TNA in order to promote
his book and meet the fans. - Scott Halls WCW debut was Zbyskos
idea and he says that something similar to that angle was attempted in the
AWA, but it didnt work out, so they tried to re work it into WCW, and
that became the New World Order. - James then takes the time to thank Zbysko
and mentions that Zbysko was only his second interview and the one that gave
him his confidence to keep up with the interviews. - The interview ends with
one last plug for the book. He says that some people have told him its too
short, but he took that as people liking it so much they didnt want
the book to end. - Zbysko is then asked about the Chris Benoit situation
and how the media treated it, and he just said thats what the
media does but he also feels that attention needs to be made towards
the abuse of steroids and all the physical abuse the wrestlers have to
