• Bruce Prichard Reveals The ECW Star That WWF Wanted The Most
During a recent edition of Something To Wrestle podcast, Old School WWF Veteran Bruce Prichard talked about the ECW star that WWF wanted the most, Paul Heyman not wanting ECW guys to do the job to WWF wrestlers, and Heyman’s stubbornness being the reason why WWF – ECW Storyline fell apart.
Below are the highlights:
On the ECW star that WWF wanted the most:
“Rob Van Dam was probably the star that we wanted the most and thought he was somebody we can bring in and capitalize on, so Rob Van Dam was somebody we were interested in. That is attractive and terrifying to Paul Heyman, because Paul at the same time and thinking, ‘Oh s**t, WWE is interested in him, I don’t want to lose him, and if they are interested in him I have something here with him.’ Paul liked to have that control and he liked to manipulate the talent to staying and work for him.”
On Paul Heyman not wanting ECW guys to do the job to WWF wrestlers:
“Paul Heyman was stirring everything up. It wasn’t that the boys didn’t want to do the job [to Rob], it was Paul who didn’t want to do the job. It was Paul feeling that if they did a job on our television, that it would hurt ECW. The fact that we are putting them on TV and doing something with them helps ECW with the exposure alone. As Vince said, ‘I wouldn’t have put you on my TV if I didn’t have plans for you.'”
On Heyman’s stubbornness being the reason why WWE – ECW Storyline fell apart:
“Paul Heyman got people so stirred up that they didn’t want to do jobs, and that he believed that it was fine to tell stories just as long as I win, but when I lose I don’t want to tell the story anymore. I want to be on your TV as long as I win, but that just doesn’t work. In order to tell a story you have to have winners and losers, and that is why it fell apart. If there was going to be a debate over that each time Vince McMahon wasn’t going to want anything to do with it.”
