WWF.com has a non-kayfabe interview up with X-pac. He comments on Michaels, the nWo, all kinds of stuff. I think it shows his true character, though:
To those superstars who are concerned that they'll see their spot on the card lowered and their television time reduced with the arrival of the nWo, Waltman admits "some of them have a gripe." But he also says there's a potential bright side to the arrival of Hall and Nash.
He dismisses the notion that Hall and Nash will refuse to compete with certain talent.
"People can say what they want about Kevin because of the last days of WCW," he said. "A person can become a product of their environment. When you're in a place that's (screwed up), it's everybody for themselves.
"If (the other superstars) are lucky, they'll get to work with guys like Scott, Kev, myself -- I don't mean to put myself over at this point, but I will -- and Hunter," he said. "We're some of the guys who can show people what to do and when do to it. One thing you can't deny is the passion that we all share for wrestling."
YOU WANT A PIECE OF ME!?! - The immortal, chilling words of...The Shockmaster!
*grin* I must say that I personally liked the whole interview.. since it showed what he really thought and all.. there is a certain amount of ego in what he's saying, but honestly.. he's been wrestling for a pretty good amount of his life, and he knows the ropes pretty well.. and ultimately, the nWo being back won't hold down someone.. its the fans response that may. So he does have a point
That's UPN's decision not the WWE's. I bet UPN is THRILLED to be scoring these kinds of numbers against Survivor (which debuted last night, what was that about no real competition?) and Friends. Thrilled to death they are.
