He has entertained the masses for two decades. What has blue hair, wears half shirts and does moonsaults and gets some of the biggest pops from the crowd….THE BLUE MEANIE….
It has been over 10 years since the Blue Guy has taken the hot seat with RF VIDEO and this time he sat down with us for an exclusive 3 hour shoot interview where he holds nothing back. I personally have know him for over 20 years and always considered him a friend and Brian Hefferon really comes across during this interview has his true persona and genuine good hearted wrestling fan.
During this interview we find out all about the final days in ECW for the Meanie and what it meant to him when the land of Extreme closed its doors. We talk about all the problems that ECW had before they went under and how he came back into ECW as a whole different character and how he lost all his weight.
Meanie talks about his troubled relationship with ex girlfriend Jasmine St Claire and how they met and what went wrong in the relationship. This is when the interview at times became very emotional as Meanie talked about how he got involved in helping create 3PW wrestling and what really went on behind the scenes in 3PW. You will hear all about the Philly wars between 3PW, CZW, XPW, and ROH around early 2000. 3PW had a lot of troubles behind the scenes and now for the first time ever Meanie talks about what went wrong and why the company had to close it’s doors.
His relationship was filled with ups and downs with Jasmine and he finally tells his story on what ended his relationship. From the lies of Jasmine getting arrested for making fake phone calls,to being sick in the hospital as part of reasons for not showing up and paying the boys, to leaving Meanie with no money to pay the talent that showed up, this interview covers it all. Why did Tod Gordon quit 3PW and what problems did he have with the ex porn star?
We talk about all of the ECW reunion shows run by Shane Douglas and Jeremy Borash and his thoughts on them. How he got hurt at Hardcore Homecoming and just 2 days later worked for ECW One Night Stand. The best part of the interview is when Meanie talks in great detail on what went down between JBL and himself during the brawl on the PPV. You will hear about the build up of heat between the two that started years earlier when Meanie had his WWE run, to what really went on in the ring when JBL began to stiff him with closed punches. What happened backstage, what WWE guys were on Meanies side and told him to sue the company, what happened backstage with JBL after the match, what did Meanie do and to make it worse why he had heat with some of the talent like Francine and Danny Doring.
Everyone knows that Meanie went back to the WWE some short time after but what was the real reason there. Was it because they were scared of him suing? You will find out during this interview. What happened when HHH saw Meanie in the hall before the TV taping that he was brought back, You will hear all about his private meeting with Vince McMahon at the TV tapings after the JBL fight and my personal favorite story is his private meeting with JBL behind closed doors.
Meanie has been around the business forever and has great funny stories on everyone. We talk about his current role in todays business and what it was like to work with many other top indy companies around the country. This interview picks up right where our last one left off and I highly recommend it to anyone who is a ECW fan or WWE fan as his stories are all new and exciting.
