Bob Holly Talks Working With Ric Flair & Steamboat As A Job Guy, Signing With WWE, If He Was A Bully

There's a lot of speculation out there, people read, hey, that I was hard to get along with, that I beat up people, push people around and stuff in the back, that I'd just bully people and stuff like that. If that was the case, I promise you I wouldn't have stayed with that company for 16 years. I would have not been there that long. The reason I was there for so long is because I got along with everybody and I did what I was told to do. I think that was the key to being there for so long, because I could get along with everybody and everybody liked working with me and I did what I was supposed to do. Plus, another thing that really helped was when they needed somebody, because time cues are really important, especially on TV and PPVs. I was really good at hitting my cues. Gerry Brisco, he was really high on me and using me in certain spots because if they needed somebody and they needed somebody to go out there and have a match, we only needed to go x amount of minutes and it's got to be quick, I was really good at hitting my time cues and everything else and not going over on live TV.

It was a combination of things that I was able to stay there for so long, but I really think it attributed to me doing exactly what I was told to do without giving them any problems whatsoever.

Make sure to check back later this week for the rest of our interview, where Holly discussed the Attitude Era, if he ever thought about jumping to WCW during the Monday night wars, getting injured in a match with Brock Lesnar, not being ready to be in the title picture, ending CM Punk's streak, working with Punk, hypocrisy with the WWE Wellness Policy and much more.
