The Headbangers Talk About The Current Product, TNA, A WWE Return & More
WrestlingINC: You had a period when you were out of the public eye. What were you guys doing during that time?
Glen: Once I got released I was out completely. I did a couple things here and there then I landed with… I was actually an area supervisor for a pizza chain. I don't want to mention their name because I don't want them to get any publicity off of this. I did that for about 6-7 years. Once I got released I was out. Maybe after that I did one or two independent shows but after that I was totally out.
WrestlingINC: Chaz, you were performing in Florida, right?
Chaz: Yeah, I did indies here and there.
WrestlingINC: What about TNA? Is that something you'd be interested in?
Chaz: If you look at the videos we've done we've made fun of WWE tag champs, TNA tag champs, Ring of Honor tag champs. At this point we're just looking for whoever's going to give us an opportunity to showcase that we can still do what we've always done. I know they're like, 'Oh, you guys are old now. You guys are has-beens. You guys were around 15 years ago.' Put us in the ring with anybody that can go right now and I guarantee we can still go toe to toe with them. Whoever's willing to give us the opportunity; that's what we're looking for. The only company that has seemed to do that so far is JCW, Juggalo Championship Wrestling. We've done a few shows for them. They're booking us on everything and we've proven that we can still go just like everyone else can. Age means absolutely nothing.
Glen: Especially when you don't have the wear and tear on your body like we haven't in the past 11 years.
Chaz: The funniest part for me just recently is I read a thing where possibly [Rob] Van Dam might be going back to the WWE when his contract's up. I believe Van Dam is older than us. If Van Dam can still go being 40, 41 then why can't we?
WrestlingINC: Have you been keeping up with the product the past 10 years?
Chaz: Off and on. Sometimes it's a little painful to watch because I think back to when we were there and before us. I think the quality was a lot better back then and it's painful to watch because you're aggravated watching some of these guys work. How come they're there and we're not? It's a little frustrating but it is what it is. We're looking at it as though we're starting at the bottom again, working our way back up and like I said - opportunity.
WrestlingINC: What are your thoughts on the product today? It's completely different.
Chaz: When I watch it, it's like cookie cutter. To me, there are no characters anymore. You had Stone Cold who hated his boss. You had Shawn [Michaels] who was the cocky prick. You had DX who would just go out there and just try to make fun of people. That's what we did. We did parodies of people. We went out there and we just had a good time. You had different characters that the fans could relate to.
