- From Mister Saint Laurent:
In part 2 of his MLW Radio appearance, which is available right now on MLW.com, The Ultimate Warrior spoke about fighting Vince McMahon in court for years and spending over a million dollars in the process. Warrior also commented about the respect he developed for Vince after the long battle.
“It went on for almost five years and it was about to start trial. It was a Friday. Vince and Linda were there with their counsel, Jerry McDevitt, and I was there with my counsel. It had gone on for five years. There were 30,000 documents. There were 30 or 40 depositions that had been taken in all different places all over the country. There were 900 exhibits. It was incredible. I was already into it for a million dollars in paid legal fees.”
“I think [Vince] was surprised as time went on. In those kinds of things, Vince has the money to throw at them all day long. He doesn’t really sit and think about the consequence. He just doesn’t. It was different for me because I was so close to it and it just kept dragging on and on. Vince is stubborn. Both Linda and others in their depositions under oath said the problem between me and Vince was that we were so much alike.”
“At the end of the day, after all the fighting and everything, I respect Vince more than anybody else. The writing is on the wall while you’re there. All the guys that are bitter about where they ended up in their lives, that wasn’t Vince’s responsibility. Vince’s loyalty was to his company, himself and his family. He wasn’t going to let anybody stand in the way and even though outsiders can see some of the things he did as vicious, I happen to admire that.”
Part 2 of The Ultimate Warrior on MLW Radio with Mister Saint Laurent is available on MLW.com, iTunes and syndicated by Stitcher.com.
- During a recent interview with NewsDay, TNA Knockout Mickie James said she’s serious about her music career:
“I do want it to be a real career,” says Mickie. “… I want to cross over into that and take my fan base with me in the music side. It’s been a slow process, a lot of work, but it’s been good work. It’s just like when I broke into wrestling, still learning, still perfecting. Just like I’m still learning things in the ring.”

- As noted yesterday incoming TNA talent King Mo is currently recovering from injuries including a staph infection in his knee, which will keep him out for another few months. It was noted at the press conference that he’ll first start appearing in the Summer as the company documents his training. Although he’ll be green, he has done basic training and was nearly signed to an OVW developmental deal when it was part of the WWE banner.
