Former Mean Street Posse member, Pete Gas was a guest on the Sam Roberts Wrestling Podcast this week where he discussed a variety of topics from modern day wrestling to backstage stories throughout his career.
Below are some highlights from the interview:
On If Daniel Bryan Will Wrestle Shane McMahon
“As a well-educated fa, I think we are going to see it. I’ve known Daniel since he was 19 years old. When we got sent to Memphis, four guys from Shawn Michaels school came in and they were taught by Shawn to be stiff, no matter how much your opponent moans to be stiff and he was adamant about it. I remember working Daniel and he was the American Dragon and those guys were way advanced and they were watching Japanese wrestling whilst we would be out and they lived and breathed it.”
Playing Dominoes With The Undertaker
“As far as Taker goes, he was always there and helpful. I played Dominoes against Taker and Kane. I started off just watching and then they needed someone to fill in and I covered and was with Godfather and I still have the same set now.”
Earning Wrestlers Respect
“I did a signing over the summertime and it was myself, Kevin Thorne and Bob Holly and we did the signing and we go to leave, I put the books I didn’t sell in the car and go in to say goodbye. Bob grabs my wrist and he goes ‘You are one tough son of a bitch, he said ‘ I don’t know if you know this, but we used to say would try and break you guys and see who would make you moan, we hit you with everything we had and we get backstage and you’re laughing, I couldn’t break you and I got my balls busted by JBL.’ There was a whole crew of guys who used to try break us and he said to me that day I earned his respect.”
