VOC Nation sent out the following:
Stevie Richards was in studio to discuss the WWE wellness policy, his time in ECW, his relationships and friendships in wrestling, candid thoughts on current and former stars, and so much more.
Joey Styles joined the show to discuss the upcoming ECW Unreleased DVD which will hit stands on June 5th.
Joey talked about:
Being involved in the production of the DVD: “I had input on choosing the matches; I had input with creative services on choosing the classic, old school, red ECW logo which has never been sold on a tee shirt ever, either by ECW or WWE. I also had an input on the artwork and the inside packaging of the DVD.”
On being outspoken: “I have a reputation for speaking my mind. Sometimes it gets me in trouble, but it’s been good for my career so I’ll just keep doing it.”
On Paul Heyman’s Return: “I mentioned (before on VOC Nation) that Paul Heyman should be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame. ECW had a profound influence on the WWE product. It’s great to have Paul back; who better to play a scheming, coniving, aggressive, ruthless character than Paul?”
On Helping Stevie Richards Get Over, and Stevie in General: (Stevie Richards was in studio at WNJC Philadelphia and thanked Joey for helping to get the Stevie Richards character get over) “We are long time friends and you are giving me way too much credit. You are the only person I know that is in much better shape at 40 years old than you were at 20 years old. I’ve known Stevie for 20 years, and I am absolutely puzzled on why he is not booked by some promoter every single day of the week…if you’re a promoter, get your money’s worth and book Stevie.”
On Stevie Richards Working in WWE Developmental: “Being a role model to the wellness program, living in Florida, being in great shape, and being great in the ring…Stevie would be a great addition to the WWE developmental team. I don’t have any infulence, but I’m sure that WWE management will hear this.”
On Michael Cole being moody and his overuse of Worldwide: “Tweet Michael Cole and tell him that you have a problem with him stealing your term…now that I said that, I better have someone else start my car because Michael Cole can be a pretty nasty guy.”
On Tom Prichard: “I love Dr. Tom, he is a great guy.”
