Shane Douglas and Stephen DeAngelis Talk Hardcore Roadtrip Drama, Pro Wrestlers vs. Zombies, More
Posted by Larry Csonka on 05.07.2014

Shane Douglas and Stephen DeAngelis recently appeared on Under The Mat Radio. Here are the highlights…

Shane on the business today: "I'm so impressed by the athleticism of the kids today and my heart breaks for them because they didn't break into the same business that I broke into. I sit back and wonder with that kind of athleticism could you imagine the matches that they would be having."

Shane on what the term "Kid" means in the business and why veterans use that term: "It's not a condescending term; it's a term of age. From the experience that I've had with people like Kevin Sullivan, Terry Funk, Bruno Sammartino and this long list of guys...it was a term of expectation. They expected you to pick up where they left off unfortunately the powers to be in this business had completely took this industry in a left hand turn away from wrestling to cartoon land."

Shane on Pro Wrestlers vs. Zombies: "We had a ton of fun filming it; we weren't trying to make the Citizen Kane. We were making fun of our careers sort of tongue and cheek taking a jab at the business. I think when you watch the movie in that light it's a funny movie and it's timely in where the business sets."

Stephen DeAngelis on how Mark Livingston screwed them over: "I ask one of the drivers or volunteers 'Where's Mark?' He said, oh, Mark, was having a heart attack or stress attack and his wife took him to the hospital. The guy says I can go to the hospital now...I say no you are coming with me and I made him go in the back. I got the locker room together. Then a phone call comes and says that they (Mark) wanted him to pick up the money from the hospital...so we let him go thinking there's chance money is there. After the match (still no money or Mark), Colin Delaney grabs the mic and tells the fans that the promoter has skipped and left..."
