On this week’s This is Awesome Wrestling Show, hosts Glenn Moore (@GlennMooreCLE) and Steve Guy (@TheSteveGuy) recap the lackluster Monday Night Raw and discuss why the show seemed to drag on through the night. No Daniel Bryan. No Dolph Ziggler. And we see Randy Orton vs. Kane (again) and Big Show vs. Roman Reigns (again). Orton did earn a title shot against Seth Rollins at Extreme Rules.

Neville also had a great match against Rollins. What is the future with Neville? And why won’t they call him Adrian Neville? Yo, Adrian! Also, A.J. Lee has stepped away from the squared circle. What kind of legacy does she leave behind?

This week’s guest is former WWE/WCW/ECW star 2 Cold Scorpio. He talks about his drug use, if he would ever participate in WWE’s Legends House, the current use of the 450 Splash, his run in the WWE as Flash Funk, and if he watches WWE today.

Transcript of some highlights from interview:

On the Flash Funk gimmick:
“You know, the thing about it is, I’m 2 Cold Scorpio until the day I die. 2 Cold Scorpio was the name that I built. Flash Funk was a nice gimmick. It was a gimmick that Vince [McMahon] came up with. Just like he said, it would take me two years to get it over. I said I could get it over in a year. Did it in four months. In reality, do I miss putting on the Flash Funk bullshit? Not miss it at all. Not one bit.”

On working as a tag team:

“It was never really something I looked into. It was something I was thrown into. I’ve always been a singles wrestler. As far as partner wise, I would say Vader and me is probably one of the toughest and baddest tag teams out there. What would they say? Big salt and bad pepper. When we come, it’s coming, you know what I mean?

Other than that, I’ve had a few great partners, back in the day, that I thought might have worked out. One of my biggest ones that one that I thought we could have went someplace, which turned out to be just be a big pussy, was Bagwell.

Buff the Stuff…still stuffin’ his stuff, huh?”

On ever working for WWE again and would he like to go in WWE Hall of Fame:

“I’m there. Without a doubt. Hall of Fame? Shit, who don’t want to be in the Hall of Fame? Who doesn’t want to be on a Legends deal? Anybody that’s in this business who ever done anything in this business for themselves or to get other people involved in wrestling because of your skills and talent, I think you deserve to be in the Hall of Fame.”

Would he ever participate in WWE Legends House:

Scorpio: Can we smoke weed?

Host: I don’t think so, I dunno.

Scorpio: Then, hell no I couldn’t be up in there with those folks.

Host: Maybe you and RVD…

Scorpio: Man, RVD, shit, we would have everybody in contact.

Drug use back then:

Scorpio: For the ones who was used to doing it and creating speculator high flying moves and stuff like that, it was the norm.

Host: Was that how the 450 Splash was created?

Scorpio: Believe it or not, show you right. Hey, 420 all day long now. Watch out now!
