Jim Neidhart Talks About His WCW Run After The Montreal Screwjob
Posted by Joseph Lee on 06.21.2014



Jim "The Anvil" Neidhart was a guest on In Your Head Wrestling Radio where he talked about his "Who?" gimmick in the WWF and his post-Montreal Screwjob run in WCW. Here are highlights:

On the story behind his ‘Who' gimmick in the WWF: "Oh brother; I'll tell you, that was some real BS. I think it was more like a little punishment thing. I think they found some of that horrible devil weed in my system, and finding the devil weed they suspend you, let you go home for a couple of weeks to rest up. They threw me back on the road and said OK, we're going to torture him a little bit; we're going to take that pink and black off you and throw you in a yellow mask as a single…If you never worked with a mask on before, wow. It's a big, big difference; you can't see. You had no peripheral vision…If you're wrestling with that mask on; you have to look at your opponent constantly. It's way, way harder to wrestle with a mask on than it is without, because you have to tell the people what you're doing a little bit without actually looking at them; you have to use way, way more body language, which is really different. I wouldn't recommend it to anybody, walking into a big venue sold out and you're trying to do a single with a mask on and you don't know what the hell you're doing."

On his feelings on his WCW run (after the Montreal Screwjob): "I've never made so much money doing absolutely f**king nothing. It was ridiculous. I made almost $300,000 in twelve months to do absolutely nothing, and accomplish nothing. They didn't know what they were doing; it was ridiculous…It's a shame; they had so much talent going through there but they didn't have anybody that knew what the hell they were doing. Eric Bischoff, I guess, was in charge with Hogan and that crew, and I thought the nWo thing was kind of cute, but they never had any real direction toward it."
