Interview Highlights: Sean “X-Pac” Waltman talks about NXT’s next breakout star, Owen Hart’s retirement plans, who Sean forgot to thank in HOF speech, calls B.S. on Wendy Richter


Sean “X-Pac” Waltman guested on “The NotSam Network’s The Tomorrow Show with Keven Undergaro & Roxy Striar.” The following are key highlights provided to PWTorch.com from the show’s producers.


•What Owen Hart’s retirement plan was: “He [Owen Hart] was ready to call it a day in the, in the next few years. He had just, he had just paid for a house… gotten a house for the family, ya know, on the lake… All those things that you’re working towards, right? He had achieved those things and he was about ready to cash in and get the f— out”

•When asked if Owen would have made it two more years wrestling, Sean said: “Oh yeah. Yeah. Yup.”

•Who Sean forgot to thank in his HOF speech and how he made it right: “I felt so guilty because he [Kane] was one of the people that I wanted to thank so badly in my Hall of Fame speech and I didn’t, and I was so f—ing down on myself. That was another thing. I was so down on myself for the people that I didn’t thank that I wanted to… This lady Phyllis Lee. She’s the one that talked the Great Malenko into being my wrestling teacher. And she was the first one that believed in me in wresting… And Kev [Undergaro], I was so f—ing round up. If I didn’t make eye contact with you and Maria [Menounos], I would have f—ing forgot that, too… I told him [Kane] how upset I was and he was like, ‘I just appreciate you even just telling me that.’ I mean, he was so cool about it and he really was one of the people.”

•On how Cathy Kelley is currently THE best: “Just her demeanor. Her attitude that comes through. The energy, everything… she doesn’t overshadow, even though she’s drop dead gorgeous and f—ing looks amazing and all of that, she doesn’t take away from like, it’s still the focus is on, on like the stars… She’s a superstar Kev [Undergaro]… I could see like her having her own line of makeup… She’s amazing… Of anyone in that role, she’s the best… I’ll say it to everyone’s face, she’s better than everyone there at interviewing people. Behind, Backstage stuff. No one’s even close.”

•His favorite NXT wrestler: “Matt Riddle… He’s a prodigy… He’s a huge wrestling fan.”

•What it would take today for Sean to wrestle again: “They gotta be meaningful matches. Not just for a payoff… A big deal. Like a WrestleMania match… Just WrestleMania. It could be something like that… I didn’t mean just Wrestle – but WWE, something big… If I promoted my own show and I wrestled on it.”

•Calling b.s. on Wendi Richter not knowing it was Moolah under the Spider Lady Mask: “I can’t believe that she [Wendi Richter] didn’t know it was Moolah when they were in the ring. Bullshit…Because who the f— did she think was under the mask before they went out? She was playing this like it was, like,  the way she was talking was like she was still trying to protect the business like it was a shoot. You know, nobody walks excepts – unless you’re Mil Máscaras, Mil Máscaras, or one of these old school Lucha Libre guys – you’re not walking around in the f—ing back with your mask on. You’re not putting the match together wearing a mask so no one can tell who you are… And apparently, I don’t know, didn’t want to lose or something… It’s f—ing horrible… It looks like it was a double-cross, oh yeah, because it was so f—ing sloppy and there wasn’t even, like, her shoulders weren’t down. Yeah, for sure it was a double cross.”

•The top female wrestler from the past who could keep up with the women today: “Back then, she [Madusa] was as good as these girls…F— yes! And they’re great now, but, she was just as good as any of them. I dare somebody to f—ing tell me different…S he never had a complete roster of women to work with.”

•On why he is a teacher and not a coach (and what the difference is): “I was down at the Performance Center in Orlando. They call it guest coaching. But I’m not a coach, I’m a teacher. Difference… ‘Cause I’m not the one going, ‘Hey. Hit the ropes back and forth, f—ing twenty pushups now!’… It’s a big difference… I can take somebody and go ‘Okay, this is why you do this, this is why you do that.’ Not just run people through drills… ‘Cause they just bunch it all together and it’s not the same thing.”
