Former WWE star Paul Burchill appeared on Final Bell Radio (audio available at www.finalbellradio.com). Highlights are as follows:

Burchill on his WWE debut almost being a disaster: “I went out there and there’s a freakin’ rope hanging from the ceiling. So I swung down, went to the ring, climbed up to the top rope and stood on the top rope. As I stepped off I landed on the knee and it felt like it imploded. It was right in front of Vince and the first thing he said was ‘are you ok?’ I said I think I blew my knee out. He said you might want to get that checked. All that day I got injections, it was just about getting through the match…I was told ‘You can go get your knee fixed but I can’t guarantee there’s going to be a spot for you when you come back.’ Yea, they look after their talent.

Burchill on why the Katie Lea incest angle was scrapped: “They debuted us with huge plans for us, but they went PG two weeks later…and then you’re just there, especially on Raw, with no real direction.”

On if he’d like to work for TNA: “I’d definitely be interested because that’s schedule is perfect. I enjoy a lot of stuff I see on TNA. I like TNA, I like the product, I like the people there and I have a lot of friends there. Where they get it right is they put people on the show and let them be themselves. It comes across a lot more real.”

    So basically Vince wasn’t allowed to do the incest storyline woth him being the father of Stephs baby. So he decided he wanted to rehash the storyline with the Paul and Katie Lea Burchill characters.

    The ripper was the best gimmick of his.
    Too bad Vince never gave him a chance.

    I don’t know what he’s talking about. May be true. But he didn’t debut as the (awesome) Pirate character. He debuted just as an English wrestler who paired up with Regal. Then he later became the Pirate. Which was awesome. Who cares about swinging from a rope, that part was silly. But his character and finisher were awesome. The “incest” angle, however, was always stupid.
