SPOTLIGHTED PODCAST ALERT (YOUR ARTICLE BEGINS A FEW INCHES DOWN)...

The trio of Scott Hall, Mr. Anderson, and Victoria (Lisa Marie Varon) were recently interviewed on BBC Radio Norfolk hyping a U.K. independent show promoted by Paige’s wrestling dad Ricky Knight.

The interesting talking points included:

– Hall said he would like to be involved in WWE through the Performance Center, but he just wants to “keep his stuff together” for a while. Hall said he’s informally scouting talent for WWE since he has the ear of recruiting decision-makers.

– Mr. Anderson said he’s thought about returning to WWE because he feels like he’s in better shape now than when he left WWE eight years ago. However, it’s not as easy as just calling up Vince McMahon.

Anderson said he decided to mainly take U.K. indies bookings after leaving TNA because the independent scene has blown up recently.

– Victoria said she’s heard from fans wanting her to jump into the new Women’s division, but she feels like they would wrestle circles around her with their advanced cardio and training. Victoria said she would rather sit back and watch the current talent build a division.

Victoria was also asked about the death of Chyna (Joanie Laurer). Victoria got emotional talking about Laurer being the wrestling death, especially being a close friend. She said she was upset when people on social media had an outpouring of support for Laurer after she died, but were bashing her while she was alive. Victoria said Laurer needed to hear some support and positivity during his struggles while she was alive.

  1. Victoria, It’s easy to be kind when you see the death but don’t want to look the how people like you, making vicious mean-spirited comments that I know she read and took to heart, may have played a big part in her death. It’s hard to have faith and overcome addiction and depression when so many throw such ugliness at you and make it even harder to remain positive and keep a good sense of pride and self worth. Words and immature insults take a toll.
