Vince Russo's THE BRAND which could be both SEEN and HEARD daily on the RELMNetwork.com and PodcastOne.com, was highlighted this week by an interview with Current TNA Knockout and original member of the Doll House, Marti Belle and the ORIGINAL wrestling journalist, the ONE and ONLY Mr. Bill Apter.
Here's an excerpt of Marti discussing her unique hairstyle and whether it's been a help, or hindrance to her wrestling career:
"Let me give you the kicker about my hair and wrestling. When I first started wrestling... I was told I had to straighten my hair. I was told that my hair, like this, did not look good... he flat out told me that does not look good, that does not look professional."
In the first part of this extremely unique and special interview, Vince chats with Bill Apter, the ORIGINAL wrestling journalist. The heart of Pro Wrestling Illustrated going all the way back to the early 80's, Bill Apter covered pro wrestling in the days of kayfabe when NOBODY went near the locker room. His stories are absolutely legendary, and in the first part of this interview he covers: having heat with "Classy" Freddie Blassie, Ernie Ladd asking a waitress to sit on his face, first magazine shoot interview EVER with Bruno Sammartino and the night the "Macho Man" Randy Savage almost killed him.
"Randy Savage was very, very sensitive about his age," Apter said. "So we came up with an angle where a fan yelled out 'old man'... the story comes out, and I'm in California... and Eric Bischoff comes in the front door and he has some words with me. And he said 'Oh, by the way, Randy Savage wants to kill you'."
Last, but not least, be sure to check our Vince Russo's new reality TV series, The Business of the Business, where he brings the cameras BEHIND THE SCENES of the wrestling promotion where he is currently working, The Rocky Mountain Pro. This is FREE on his YouTube Channel.
