The interview is kicked off when Jack brings up Jerry’s show for Hermie Sadler’s UWF promotion and that he would be facing Raven on one of the shows. Jerry says that after 19 years of wrestling and being in dozens of promotions, he has never faced off against Raven before and he is really looking forward to it. Jerry also brings up that the only time him and Raven have ever been in the same ring is when Raven did a “run-in” in one of Jerry’s matches with “The Lightning Kid” Sean Waltman during their Global Wrestling days on ESPN.
Jack asks if he enjoys working for Hermie Sadler? Jerry says that he always has a blast and he hasn’t missed a show.
Jerry brings up that at another UWF show, he is facing off against both Raven and D’Lo Brown in a 3-Way Matchup. Incher asks how D’Lo Brown is doing nowadays and Jerry responds by saying that he is doing good, and owns part of an Arena Football Team.
Jack takes a call from Goosey, who asks if Jerry thought he would ever wrestle again after he tore his Patella Tendon? Jerry said that nothing will stop him from wrestling, unless it leaves him in some kind of quadriplegic state, but he knew he would wrestle again.
Goosey also asks what it was like to work with Chris Candido? Jerry said that it was a blast and that he had so much fun, he also said that his first match in ECW was against Chris.
Jack asks for his thoughts on the new ECW? Jerry says that is too bad that they are so intent on destroying the legacy of ECW. Jerry believes that the new ECW is just a way for the WWE to use talent that they cant or don’t want to use on RAW or Smackdown.
Caller JasonX asks if he ever thought that his work in Global Wrestling would still be as memorable as it is today? Jerry said not really and that he was just looking for work and having fun wrestling.
JasonX also asks about his match with Steve Corino and what was going through his mind when he wrote “DIE” on his chest? Jerry said that his feud with Steve didn’t have a lot of build up so he decided to take matters into his own hands, so he wrote “DIE” on his chest.
Incher asks about Steve and his announcement to retire soon? Jerry said that if he is not enjoying wrestling anymore, then why bother, but he wishes Steve the best..
Jack takes a call from Chris the Crusher who asks if he would have liked to have been in the inVasion storyline in WWF? Jerry says that he was at first insulted that he wasn’t apart of it, but when he thought about it, it was probably for the best because Vince McMahon would never put over any of the ECW or WCW talent, so it was for the best.
Chris also asks about the lockeroom moral back in the dying days of ECW like? Jerry said it was pretty low and that most of the guys kept going on for the sake of the company and that once ECW folded, it was over and all the guys who worked for Paul E. were screwed.
Jack asks if Paul Heyman has ever apologized for what happened during the end of ECW? Jerry said no and that there was a lot of bad blood between them, mostly on his end, but he said that it is all water under the bridge now.
Jack takes a call from ElTNAfan who asks about his matches with Rob Van Dam and if he considers those matches his best ever? He says that his most memorable matches are with Rob, but its hard to name his best match he also enjoyed working with Lance Storm, Justin Credible, Mikey Whipwreck, Rey Mysterio and CM Punk on the Indy’s.
Incher asks if he will ever regain a rematch with El Drunko in IWA: East Coast? Jerry said he hopes so, he really enjoys working there and when he worked with El Drunko, it was probably the oddest wresting experience he ever had.
Jack asks if he enjoys high flying wrestling or slower paced wrestling? Jerry said years ago, he and Sean Waltman would sit around and watch tapes from all over the world and try to incorporate the different styles into their repertoires so he likes to mix it up a bit.
Spec_Sun calls in and asks about his time in WCW as Mr. JL and what experiences he took from working there? Jerry said none really, there wasn’t anything worth while there, he said that his most memorable moment is when he wrestled Ric Flair and oddly enough Meng and the Barbarian. When Jack asked why that was so memorable, Jerry answers “Because I came out alive.”
Spec Sun also asks what wrestler through out the years has been the most inspirational to his career? Jerry says that’s tough and that Baron Von Rasche was around when he first broke into the business in Minnesota, he also says that Eddie Gilbert, Terry Taylor, Ray Stevens and Ricky Morton were also very inspirational to his career.
Another caller named Jason asks, What he would have taken away from ECW while he was there? Jerry responded with “Take the Money!.” Jerry then went on to say that just thinking positively and trying to have fun is the most important thing you can do.
Jason then asks about the possibility of Rob Van Dam going to TNA and if Jerry would welcome him with open arms? Jerry said if RVD signs with TNA, then they would have to talk business and make it worth their while.
Incher asks a question from Rios, What are your opinions on Rob Black and XPW? Jerry responded by saying that he had no problems with Rob and that he gave him a job and gave him an opportunity to work.
In Jerry’s last moments on the show, he thanks all his fans for the support and tells them not to worry because he isn’t going to quite just yet.
