Hardcore Holly is the guest this week on Jim Ross’ podcast. It’s a very good show. Holly talks about his book “The Hardcore Truth” and talks about his early wrestling days in the 1980s in Portland. Holly also talks about “arena rats,” the incident from Tough Enough with Matt Cappotelli, how he dealt with the deaths of Owen Hart and Eddie Guerrero, and he goes into detail on what happened during “Brawl For All” in 1998. In his book Holly said he was told that Jim Ross’s best friend Dr. Death Steve Williams was paid before the tournament even began and that Williams was the chosen guy because he was Ross’ friend. Ross cleared up everything on the podcast. Holly tells Jim Ross what the locker room was saying at the time when Williams was knocked out by Bart Gunn.
Holly also details the conversation he had with Chris Benoit just hours before Chris killed his wife Nancy. Holly feels that if he would have visited Chris like Chris was asking him to then maybe the double murder suicide would have never happened. You can listen to the show by clicking on the player below.
