• WWF Legend Left The Company Because He Thought The Kliq Buried Him
On a recent episode of his weekly ‘Something To Wrestle With’ podcast, Bruce Prichard spoke about the WWF career of fellow Old School WWF Legend Bam Bam Bigelow and him eventually leaving the World Wrestling Federation in late 1995 after feeling he was buried by the Kliq.
Here’s what the former Brother Love said:
“I think that he was feeling and buying into the hype of, hey, the Kliq is really burying you. And he didn’t feel he had a way out. I think that was one of those where Vince and I even told him, just do your sh*t, man. Go out and do your job and stop worrying about what the boys are telling you and what the boys are stirring in your head. Go out and do your sh*t.
He was like, ‘I just don’t think I can succeed here,’ and he wanted out. The fact that he was that uncomfortable, wanted out that bad, led to Vince saying, ‘okay, well, here you go [and gave him his release].”
