|Show: The Interactive Interview courtesy
Guest: "Dr. of Style" Slick
Your Hosts: Patrick Kelley, James Walsh, & Nick Noel
13 years after the launch of the television show that revolutionized pro
wrestling as we all knew it, WCW Monday Nitro, made its debut, The Epicenter
interviews... Well, someone who had absolutely nothing to do with Nitro.
But, someone who had a lot to do with the success of the WWF(E) in the late
1980's and early 1990's. None other than that Jive Soul Bro, "The Doctor
of Style" Slick is talkin' to ya, honey!
Stop on by and listen to our exclusive hour long interview with the
"DR. OF STYLE" SLICK
- The Slickster comes into the Epicenter. The Dr. of
Style has been working on his ministry since leaving wrestling in 1993. He
was doing this while he was in wrestling, but focused more on it once he
- They made Slick a minister character towards the end of his run after Vince
and various WWF officials sat in on one of his services, and they thought
itd be good if they made him a minister on TV. He says that he was
better at being a bad guy.
- He liked appearing at Wrestlemania 23, and said it came about because it
was the 20th anniversary of the biggest show ever in Wrestlemania III, so
it was kind of a reunion. He said it was great to see so many people that
he hadnt seen in years.
- When asked about the changes in wrestling, he says that its all show biz,
and it really isnt all that different.
- He has no idea who wrote the song Jive Soul Bro but he was
given the sheet and learned the song, and filmed the video. When asked if
he felt the video was a little racist, he says that Vince is not racist,
but based it on what he knew through stereotypes.
- The Slick character was his idea, and Col. Buck Robley gave him the name.
(He used to be named Silky Slim)
- He felt that making it through the territories before going into the big
leagues in the WWF really helped him out. Nowadays, he feels that the product
aims more for entertainment rather than wrestling, and the need for training
isnt as great. He hasnt really watched the show lately.
- When asked about the current state of managers, he feels that they were
a great asset to the business. The girl managers were tried, but Slick still
feels that managers can offer a lot.
- During the Word Associations, Slick talks about the fiasco fan fest that
took place in California. He says that if you dont have a nice
thing to say, dont say anything at all and we share a quick laugh
about the story involving Roddy Piper.
- The Akeem character was Slicks idea and they had fun with it, and
felt that the character could have been a big babyface.
- When asked about the way the media presented the Benoit Tragedy, he says
it was very negative. He says he doesnt condone the actions of the
media, he says he understands why they do it because thats how they
make a living. Slick, James, and Patrick discuss the media in today's world
and all seem to agree the best way to put it is "Never let the truth get
in the way of a good story".
- He mentions that some guys would hurt him because he was tall, but skinny.
He says now he weights about 300lbs, and he met with Valentine a few weeks
before the interview and The Hammer joked that they could be tag team partners
now. He was told that part of the reason he wasnt brought back was
because he was too tall, but feels that part of the reason was because he
felt Jay Strongbow & Blackjack Lanza didnt like him
- Slick says Hulk Hogan is and forever will be the "man" in pro wrestling.
Slick says whenever Hulk Hogan was on the card, the guys knew it would be
a sold out crowd. He goes on to say that a lot of people don't know this
but without Hulk Hogan, there would have never been a "Doctor of Style" Slick
in the WWE. It was Hogan who went to bat for Slick when watching tapes to
see who to bring in and Slick says he never forgot what Hulk Hogan did for
him and Hulk Hogan never forgot it either.
- When talking about the Hulkster these days, Slick says he hasn't spoken
to him since the Memphis show last year when Hulk Hogan battled Big Show.
But, he says when he looks in Hulk's eyes on TV now, he can tell something
is missing. He doesn't think the media is treating Hulk Hogan fairly and
he feels sorry for Hulk for having to go through this.
- The interview picks up with the word associations. He tells a lot of great
stories about a lot of the people that he was associated with during his
career in professional wrestling. Listen to Slicks opinions on names
like Butch Reed, Sid Vicious, Paul Roma, Hercules, Warlord, Big Bossman,
One Man Gang, Ricky Steamboat, Hulk Hogan, Randy Savage, Elizabeth, &
