•Dreamer on drinking Undertaker’s tobacco spit: “Yeah it was gross, it was real, I got $7,000 to do it and I got to wrestle the Undertaker three or four times. So I think anyone might do the same. Yeah, that was rough and it was LIVE. The Scaffold Match back in the day was pretty crazy (for three reasons). One, Sandman made it. Two, I’m scared of heights. Three, Brian Lee choked me with the electrical power (cable) from the entire building and after the match the guy told us that he is not sure how we were not electrocuted to death on the top of that scaffold. The scaffold swayed. I’ve done a lot of crazy things.”
•On what was cut from ECW Special on WWE Network: “That was an edited version first of all. That was the first time we’ve (he along with Paul Heyman, The Dudleys, and Taz) all been together since ECW One Night Stand 2005. I’ve said it before, Paul (Heyman) has screwed me over many times more than anybody ever has, but we’ve had it out but Paul deserves all the credit in the world. It was the best times in people’s lives and I’ve said it myself I learned a lot about the person I am and why I am what I am. I experienced loss. A lot of people tell me what ECW meant to them, but ECW didn’t have to go away, but it did. It was like a death to me. One day you’re on top of the world and then next you’re unemployed. The ending I can tell you was different. We ended up fighting [laughs] because Paul started bringing up Brock Lesnar and I said, “Who cares about Brock Lesnar? I’ll fight him foreal, I’ll fight him in UFC or WWE who gives a shit.” Then Devon said, “Yeah, Paul, how you going to do that?” Then Paul starting to keep trying to rap it up and go back to Brock when they said, “Uhh guys, you can wrap this up whenever you’d like.”
Tommy also discussed James Ellsworth, what it was like when he first saw Dusty Rhodes, how Raw recently was a bunch of filler besides the main event, what crazy stunt three fans did for him on TV, and much more in this 45-minute interview: FULL AUDIO LINK
