Here are some of the highlights of Jesse’s interview, provided by The Mayhem’s correspondent, Paterson from New Jersey:
It’s time to officially usher in the “Merry Mayhem” holiday season of “Your Home Of Wrestling Radio.” Fresh off the heels of guest-hosting World Wrestling Entertainment’s “A RAW Thanksgiving” (in Hershey, PA), Jesse “The Body” Ventura, stepped back into The Mayhem’s squared circle for the second time…and we aren’t starting the yuletide revolution without him!
On WWE’s Monday Night RAW two weeks ago, we had the pleasure of seeing Ventura make his return to a WWE ring & even get on the mic for commentary with Vince McMahon in a “flash to the past.” Blade asked Jesse about him having a script for the night & if everything he did was all “The Body” or the WWE Creative Team. “I went along with their program pretty well. The writers didn’t write a thing for me, I’m not going to allow them to do that, because in my day of wrestling, it was left up to you to be the creator & you, the wrestler, to showcase your talent. They set up most of the scenarios, but I will tell you this, it was a fun night. They couldn’t have been nicer to me. All the wrestlers was terrific. What I tried to do that night was simply turn back the hands of time. I went it with a mind set that for one night & become Jesse ‘The Body,’ because has you noticed, I was still a bad guy.”
The controversial owner of the Dallas Mavericks, Marc Cuban is slated to guest-host RAW this coming Monday from The American Airlines Center in Dallas, TX, and Mosh asked Ventura if he feels he could take Cuban down inside a WWE squared circle. “Marc is a friend of mine, and I wouldn’t wrestle him at all. I have great respect for him. He’s kind of a renegade like I am, he doesn’t always go by the rules, and he dances to the beat of his own drum, so I look up to Mark Cuban. Mark will do a great job, because he knows how to perform, and he’ll have a lot of fun with it. All you wrestling fans will enjoy it when Cuban’s on.”
Even more is contained in this bonus edition of “Your Home Of Wrestling Radio,” as Jesse “The Body” Ventura joins The Mayhem to preview the first season of “Conspiracy Theory,” the origin of how the show came to be, & what was the most interesting conspiracy he had a chance to study with his team & panel of experts. Be sure to catch “Conspiracy Theory” on truTV every Wednesday night at 10PM ET/9PM CT, and for more details on what to expect as part of Jesse’s new show, be sure to log onto the official “Conspiracy Theory” website (located at www.TruTV.com/Shows/Conspiracy_Theory/index.html)
