Talk ‘N Shop A Mania was billed as the “worst pay-per-view ever” – but the reaction of wrestling fans across the world would most definitely contradict that point. Trending worldwide on premiering, the wrestling world was abuzz with chatter about the brainchild of Doc Gallows, Karl Anderson and Rocky Romero – and one of the major keys to the show’s success would be the cameos it attracted!
Ahead of Talk ‘N Shop A Mania 2, I caught up with The Good Brothers and Rocky Romero to get the low-down on the sequel to the event they pitched as the “worst pay-per-view ever” – and Doc Gallows revealed to me how ‘Big Poppa Pump’ Scott Steiner ended up on the show!
LG: “I met Scott in probably 2011, and we’re both Georgia guys. I went to India with him and then worked with them doing some TNA and a bunch of independent stuff so Scott and I have been friendly over the years. But trying to ask Big Poppa Pump Scott Steiner to make a cameo in a Ball For A Ball Match in your front yard, that’s a little different than engaging in a serious professional wrestling match with him.”
“Luckily, Scott likes us. Scott’s got a big sense of humour. And after a few, ‘What the f**k are you talking abouts,’ we got it done and I think that’s a hell of a cameo to the point where, you know, this pay-per-view, as I said earlier, which is available via the Fite app over where you’re at, is way more vulgar than what we did the first time. It’s even more vulgar than the podcast, which we think is really funny. And within saying that, we still had to cut something that Scott Steiner said, ’cause we went, “Oh, s**t! That’s a little too far, Good Brother!” So that’s just not gonna make it. He went all the way in so I think that the Scott Steiner verbiage will be some of the classic lines out of the pay-per-view. And I hope to to hear those repeated back to all of us on Twitter on the on the night of the 13th.”
KA: “Very, very rated-R. Very. So be ready for it.”
