Ring Rust Radio recently spoke with ECW legend and former WWE and TNA superstar TOMMY DREAMER in an exclusive interview. Dreamer discussed about House of Hardcore 2, the differences between the companies he has worked for and their respective owners and his thoughts on a possible return to the big leagues of WWE. Here are some excerpts from the interview… On a Possible Part-Time Return to WWE… I would say ‘No, I want a full time run,’ because I love being on the road, I love working, I love doing live events, I love doing house shows. For someone who is semi-retired, between filming movies and doing independent shows and doing other things, I work all the time. So I don’t mind it. I’ve been doing this since I was 18 years old and I love being on the road. I still like competing and wrestling. If they wanted me to go full-time, I’d gladly go full time because there are a lot of guys I’d like to work with. So, part-time, no. Full-time, sure. On the Differences Between WWE, TNA and ECW… Paul Heyman taught me the most and showed me; working for Paul was a blessing and a curse because he showed me a lot of the right ways to do business. Vince McMahon, I have like three houses because of Vince McMahon so he’s the most successful boss I’ve had because in ECW, I didn’t really make any money, really none of us did. Dixie Carter was very, very cool. Gave me a lot of responsibility at first. I wish that company would be a lot better than it is, but personally, Dixie Carter, I really, really like her. I had a great relationship with Vince, I still have a great relationship with Vince and I have a great relationship with Paul, so it’s all good. It’s not like I sit around, I’m not bitter or hate those people. A lot of people don’t understand that wrestling used to be solely based upon on your talent when there was other federations. If you were a good wrestler, you were rewarded. Yes, there were politics involved, but now it’s just really however is in charge likes you, that’s how a lot of guys have jobs. Your talent is most important to the fans and not the people behind the scenes, which is sad, but hopefully one day it will change. On House of Hardcore 2 in Philadelphia… I would hope that it’s just as good as the first one. I couldn’t have asked for anything more from the talent. It was a great team effort. Most of the guys are handpicked, and I want the Philly fans; I always said that if I did the first one and it was successful, I would do another and I always wanted to go to Philly. I just want the Philly fans to be exactly who they are; some of the best wrestling fans in the world. If they don’t like something or someone, they’ll let them know it, and if they do like it, I want them to appreciate it. The saying is if you can make it in New York, you can make it anywhere, but if you make it in Philadelphia, you can make it anywhere. You’re kind of like a made man. I was born into this world as Tom Laughlin, but I’m mostly known as Tommy Dreamer, and Tommy Dreamer was born in Philadelphia. I love the city and I have such a connection with the place and they’re the greatest wrestling fans.
