Mike Buda with Top Rope Radio on SportstownChicago.com recently interviewed former ECW manager/promoter Lou D'Angeli. D'Angeli discussed his reaction to CM Punk's fan altercation, Devon's surprise return at BFG, his relationship with Paul Heyman and his dislike of Billy Corgan and Resistance Pro Wrestling. Here are some highlights from the interview:
On CM Punk's altercation with a fan on Raw: "He's the top heel, he's probably one of the most visible guys in that company and he has legit heat on him. People don't like him and you can't send a guy like that into the crowd unprotected…If somebody's punching me, I'm punching back. It sucks that it happened like that, but he shouldn't have been in that situation to begin with."
On Billy Corgan's Resistance Pro Wrestling: "This is no different than some random guy with a lot of money that comes off the street and buys his way into a wrestling promotion. It's really annoying to be quite honest with you because there are a lot of people that are really passionate and they just don't have deep pockets."
On Devon's appearance at Bound For Glory: "There's an element of surprise. I think there are very few people that are able to do this that can work the dirt sheets and everyone around you to believe one thing's happening and then swerve them and realistically surprise them; I think that's awesome. It's kind of cool because to my knowledge everyone thought Devon was gone and quite frankly, I think he still is, but I have no idea. I don't ask him."
