Backstage Reaction To Tony Atlas Working With Henry, Screech Note

Chris Cash


VOW Note: Hey guys, just received word from Dustin Diamond that they would like to hold off on the scheduled interview that was set to take place this Monday until a little closer time for Hulk Hogan’s Reality Championship Wrestling to debut on CMT.

Eric Bischoff, being the avid WrestleZone.com reader that he is (cheap plug, I know), called Dustin and asked for him to hold off a little while before doing our show. By the way, for those of you with Eric’s email, bombard him with requests to write a regular column here on WZ – he tells me he doesn’t have time and I’m not buying it! If Glenn Gilbertti can find time with his successful career, I’m sure Bischoff can too.

On to some news now: ProWrestling.net is reporting that some within the WWE are not so high on the idea of bringing in Tony Atlas to serve as Mark Henry’s adviser. It was attempted a few years ago with Bobby Lashley, but was ditched quickly because Atlas had some negative reports against him from others within the company.

Vince McMahon is said to be the one very high on Atlas, but we don’t know at this point whether it’s a short-term or long-term gig. Interesting concept though putting Mark Henry with someone that talks worse than him. An adviser could be kept off the microphone though and Atlas may not really take the “manager” role that requires one to be a mouthpiece, but I guess we’ll see soon enough.
