Larry Zbyszko talks about the WWE Performance Center, Roddy Piper & Ultimate Warrior



WWE Hall of Famer Larry Zbyszko recently appeared on the Two Man Power Trip of Wrestling podcast to talk about the WWE Performance Center, Rowdy Roddy Piper and The Ultimate Warrior. Here are the highlights.

Recent work at the WWE Performance Center:

You get emotionally involved whether you want to or not. I go there and I look at the faces of these young men and women and they will come to me and ask can you watch my match and you end up getting involved emotionally. I'm old school and what's in me is you do what is good for the business otherwise no one makes money. Some of these guys and chicks at the school are great and are going to be good and have great potential. It breaks your heart because with others you want to say; did you ever think about getting a job? You get kind of emotionally involved with it and I can't help it and I kind of steer myself to people I know are going to be good for the business.

Getting to see old friends and his reaction to the passing of Rowdy Roddy Piper and The Ultimate Warrior:

You don't get to see the guys too often and even though you spent so much of your life working with them and especially at the point we are at now when I go to Mania I'll see a bunch of the guys and that will be cool but it's amazing that they are dropping. Like with Piper, that shocked me and I never expected him to go. The Ultimate Warrior. That was wild. At 54 he looked like he was 80. I didn't recognize the guy when I first saw him in the hotel, he looked like some old guy who was just shuffling by and I thought that's the Warrior? Something wasn't right and I'm surprised he didn't keel over on stage.
