Former WWE Superstar Pete Gas has recalled a hilarious experience in the much-discussed wrestler’s court where Teddy Long found himself on trial.
Wrestler’s court has been fabled in recent years as fans found out more about the inner workings of the WWE locker room. A way of self-policing, wrestlers could be pulled up for various misdemeanours and in former SmackDown General Manager Teddy Long’s case, the charges were of being obscenely cheap. Not only that his fellow stars in the locker room had found out Long was selling them Viagara pills that he was getting for free.
Mean Street Posse member and former WWE Superstar Pete Gas has relived witnessing Long’s trial on an episode of Stories With Brisco and Bradshaw. JBL was often the prosecution in these proceedings but the usual judge of The Undertaker had been replaced on this occasion by Triple H:
“I believe the charges were not cheapskate, it was cheap motherf*cker [laughs]. I remember it was like a court setting but we had desks for some reason in this one room. I remember having a spit cup and some tobacco and Kurt Angle was next to me and we laughed so hard, we were holding each other up at one point.”
“So the charges came up and Hunter [Triple H] told you [JBL] and you stood up, Hunter was papa, the godfather and he was standing there with his arms crossed all very official-like. You got up and said there were times when you go through a toll and [Teddy Long] would make like he’s fumbling through his pockets and then the money would come out when you’re already 20 yards past the toll. There was all these different charges but the official one was that he was a cheap mother f*cker.”
“All the charges came out and we’re all laughing, the place was packed to the gills. I remember Hunter said after all the evidence was brought up, he turned to me and goes ‘Well Teddy, you’re pretty much f*cked.’ He said ‘You have anything to say for yourself?’ […] Teddy goes ‘Your honour, I’d like to call a character witness – Mae Young.’ And that alone got the crowd to pop. She comes walking up and she says ‘I don’t understand you wrestlers with your big d*cks needing that Niagara’ and the place went nuts! The final verdict was he had to give you guys chicken and I don’t know how many cases of beer.”
JBL confirmed that he and long time tag team partner who rode with Long were entitled to buckets of chicken and a lot of beer after the sentence was passed by The Game.
