The following are highlights of Sean “X-Pac” Waltman’s interview on “The Tomorrow Show with kevin Undergaro” including hot topics from his advice to Ronda Rousey, the Conor McGregor bus attack, what his Hall of Fame speech will be like if he wins, and more. The quotes were supplied to PWTorch by The Tomorrow Show’s producers.
•On Ronda Rousey: “So you know, she [Ronda Rousey] has a ring out at her place so I might go out there and do some training with her… I wouldn’t say training, I would say teaching… In a classroom almost, not in the ring… I just said, the key for you is just to stay – keep yourself different from the rest… She’s a huge wrestling fan. That being said, when somebody comes in from the outside, say from MMA, and they are a huge wrestling fan, they wanna get in there and start doing, you know, all the pro wrestling spots. And it’s like she needs to shy away from a lot of that stuff because that’s what everyone else does… There are just certain things that are routine about wrestling matches that she needs to shy away from to keep her different… the match they had, that match was about as flawless as you get.”
•On what his WWE Hall of Fame speech would be like if he were to be inducted: “I guarantee you if I’m ever inducted it’s gonna be under 10 [minutes]… It’s gonna be Scott Hall style… I would let the person inducting me talk about all the great things I’ve done. And then I’ll come out and I’ll thank everybody and all the proper people that need thanking and that’s it. No need to f—ing toot my own horn.”
•Why his opinion of Bruno Sammartino has changed: “I look at it different now when I watch a match. When I was younger I used to think what made a good match were like, cool moves, cool high spots, diving outside the ring, moonsault, sh– like that. And really what makes a good match is what makes the people f—ing come unglued. That’s the one thing. There’s nothing else that matters, except making the fucking people go crazy.”
•On whether the Conor McGregor incident was a publicity stunt: “No, it’s not [a publicity stunt]…it’s just not. I mean, everybody thinks everything’s fucking fake now and everything’s a work, you know what I mean? But it’s not. It’s just, his [Conor McGregor], you know, he’s used to being able to get away with fucking outlandish behavior like that and I’m sure he didn’t think it was, him throwing that shit up against the side of the bus was gonna do the damage it did… I think it might affect his being able to fight, though, in the United States.”
•On whether McGregor might have enough money to avoid jail time: “No, he faces a lot of time. People got f—ing hurt.”
