Asistencia Asesoría y Administración matchmaker Konnan and Major League Wrestling President/former WWE creative writer Court Bauer joined Mister Saint Laurent on MLW Radio. The roundtable discussion covered a variety of topics, with all three speaking candidly about their time in the professional wrestling industry.
Konnan discussed his relationship with Yokozuna: “Yoko was gangster. I went to L.A. with him once and he was like the godfather of South Central. He was telling me stories about him sneaking drugs through airport security. He was well connected. He was a gangster. I looked up to him a lot. He loved my character in the nWo and we were actually going to get him to come in as a Samoan gangster and have my back.”
Konnan then explains why the former WWF Champion ultimately never joined World Championship Wrestling.
“One time Scott [Hall] was with (Eric) Bischoff and he [said to Yokozuna], ‘Man Bischoff is right here. Let’s make this happen.’ Yoko said, ‘I don’t roll like that. You don’t just put someone on the phone and tell me to sign.’ He got offended and he never came in,” he said.
Other topics include which wrestlers they’ve seen yell at Vince McMahon and how the WWE Chairman reacted, why McMahon is afraid to compete with UFC, navigating politics in the top wrestling companies, McMahon being angry at the Samoans for almost jumping to WCW and taking it out on Rikishi, Rey Mysterio’s current standing in WWE, WCW drama, how to be blackballed from wrestling and more.
