Hurricane Says He Would Have Loved To Work with Enzo Amore
I really hate the whole Enzo situation or whatever all happened to him and I don’t know all the details so I’m not going to get into it but he was a star there (205 Live). He was the guy that brought attention to the show and he was a guy I would have loved to had worked with if I was Hurricane. He would have been a perfect heel. He would have been the Joker to my Batman he would have been perfect for me.
Hurricane On Social Media Playing A Part In His Royal Rumble Booking
2017 was really good and 2018 it’s just like something kicked back into gear cause fans are really taking to a lot of stuff. All the crazy shit I put on social media fans are really digging that. That’s actually been a real big boom. The whole Rumble appearance happened because of something I posted on Instagram. When they were thinking about who to add to the Rumble at that particular moment something I put up went kinda viral and it clicked. Oh, we should get the Hurricane.
Hurricane On Keeping His Royal Rumble Appearance A Secret
We only finalized it the week before. I know they (WWE) wanted me to come in years prior but I was either contractually obligated to other companies or at one time I was actually injured and couldn’t do it. This time the timing was just right. So it worked out really well. I was just happy we were able to keep it a secret. In today’s social media age, the fact that we were able to keep it, sneaking through the airports in a disguise. Even the boys didn’t know. The other guys in the Rumble didn’t know until about thirty minutes before the Rumble match started. The pay-per-view was underway and they still didn’t know until they brought me and Rey [Mysterio] in the building.
Sean ‘X-Pac’ Waltman Remembering Owen Hart
I had an excellent tag match on that show (Over The Edge) and it doesn’t really matter because you know everything done on that show was eclipsed and overshadowed by the tragic passing of our friend. When these types of anniversaries come up and our friends are no longer here, it makes us have fond memories, hopefully. And I have tons of fond memories of Owen I could do a whole show. So today I just wanted to remind everyone, so I sent a tweet out sharing a match that I had with Owen on RAW… It was a really good match so I decided to share it with everyone today. I hope you all enjoy it… We love you Owen and obviously, you’re so missed it’s not even funny.
Sean ‘X-Pac’ Waltman Thoughts On SmackDown On FOX Possibly Being Live
It’s going to be live. I’m saying that as though it’s a fact but I think I’m pretty safe to go out on a limb there and say it’s going to be live. Who wants to pay that much money for a taped show? Now, the Friday house show is just SmackDown and that’s the way it is and I think that’s just fine actually.
Sean ‘X-Pac’ Waltman Talks About WWE Stock Prices
And the stock price went through the roof. Not that I’m still in it, I’ll just say that right away. When the initial public offering happened in 1999. There were twelve people that were granted stock options like talent and that. I was fortunate enough to be one of them. I was granted 30,000 shares of stock. It went up to $30 a share pretty quick but what they did is I couldn’t exercise the options for like two years and then the XFL they took care of that.
