Former WWE, ECW and TNA star Rhyno recently appeared on The Two Man Power Trip of Wrestling Podcast to talk about his wrestling career and more. Here are the highlights.
On some of his favorite wrestling moments:
“Working with Sandman, I really enjoyed working with him. That was the first angle that really put me on the map. I really enjoyed the whole Invasion angle and working with the Rock and being able to work with Booker T.’
“I’ve been very blessed that I have been wrestling for twenty-two years. The first WrestleMania that I wrestled in at 17 and being in with Edge and Christian and helping them win the tag belts. The gauntlet to win the NWA title was a special night, working with Jeff Jarrett I always enjoyed and I think he is very talented. I know he gets a lot of flack from the fans but I think he has got a great mind for wrestling . I really enjoyed working with Kane when I first went to WWE in the Hardcore division.”
On his latest run in NXT and working with The Dudley Boyz and Tommy Dreamer:
“NXT was a lot of fun. I was there like eight months but do you remember when I was there last December with the Dudleys and Tommy Dreamer? They asked me to come in and work with Dreamer and them, I said sure what dates? If I have an Independent booking they normally wouldn’t ask you to cancel it because it’s one of those things if the promoter is booking you, you have to follow through with it. So last October I was putting together a charity wrestling event. I’m all done with NXT (at this point) and I put this charity show together and told the VFW Hall lets do it December, 8th. If they (WWE) call me last minute for NXT usually that tapes on a Wednesday or a Thursday and absolutely nobody runs on a Tuesday. So when they asked me to come in for my dates they wanted me on the 7th (I can do that) and Tuesday for Smackdown on the 8th. This is the first time they have asked me to work as part of Smackdown in over ten years and the only time I book a Tuesday show thinking nobody would want to use me on the 8th (laughing). We ended up raising $1200 for the VFW hall and the guys on the show worked for free. They needed it because the power had been turned off and it helped prevent their pipes from freezing as it started to get colder.”
