WWE has a “where are they now?” story up on Mike Adamle. Adamle talked about his debut at the Royal Rumble and was asked if he would consider a return to WWE. Here are a couple of the highlights:
On his WWE debut:
“It was kind of petrifying, to tell you the truth. You would think that with a lot of the live experience that I had, it wouldn’t be that big of a deal, but that place was packed and I learned from the get-go that WWE fans were a different breed. They know more about their sport than football fans know about football and baseball fans know about baseball. They know everything.”
His WWE departure and would he return to WWE:
“It was pretty devastating to be let go. Mr. McMahon had brought me into his office and said, ‘We’re going to end this, today is your last show.’ I would come back in a heartbeat. It’s something I wanted to be a part of and wanted to be successful at. I still think about the people at WWE, because they were great. I miss a lot of them. I miss the atmosphere.”
On messing up Jeff Hardy’s name and calling him Jeff Harvey:
“If you messed up, they let you know,” he recalled. “I corrected in mid-sentence, but they beat me to it and started booing like crazy.”
