On the latest episode of School of Morton, WWE Hall of Famer Ricky Morton talked to ECW Original Tommy Dreamer. Here are some highlights….
On Paul Heyman closing ECW:
“I forgave him and I told him this. I forgave him for everything. I lost a lot of money. I lost my parents money and when he did his review on Monday Night RAW for when he was like the general manager and cut a promo on Vince McMahon and he said… I lied. I did everything I could to keep my company afloat just like you would Vince and he cut this really, really great and I should’t say promo. When real promos aren’t scripted they are direct from the heart and have meaning and I remember there sitting there watching it and at first crying and then I was like I get it… and especially I get it owning my own wrestling company now.”
On working directly for Vince McMahon in WWE:
“I worked alongside him. I worked in the office next to him which he has veins of coffee because one he never sleeps, he may be a vampire and two his office is always cold so that’s another way he could be a vampire but I’ve got nothing but respect for Vince McMahon, I love him.”
On his favorite part in working in the office for WWE and people he signed that did him proud:
“I hired a lot of men and women, that was my favorite part of the job. When I got to hire people and help them pursue their dream. I hired CM Punk, Joey Mercury. I hired a lot of people who did me proud and did themselves proud. You need in this business someone to push for you and I was kind of that guy.”
