In one video, Damian Demento is angry with WWE because they brought up his name & put up his picture on the company website to hype the 15th Raw Anniversary show a few weeks ago. His name is frequently brought up when people look back on the history of Raw because he wrestled Undertaker in the main event of the debut edition of Raw in 1993. He is angry because he thinks fans on the Internet will talk negatively about him and say that he was a “nobody” and that he never won a title or had a major angle. He then adds, “I’ll say this much though. I maintained my integrity and my reputation, and nobody can take that away from me. So all you little ring rats out there, that are going to start saying crap, you have no idea, no idea. I didn’t ask for this. So keep your stupid comments to yourself. So what is said. So what is written. So shall it be done.” You can see that video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-0AlsyCQIs0.
He also posted another video relating to his phone number circulating among people in wrestling. Apparently, after WWE put up his picture on their website, he started getting phone calls from wrestling convention promoters looking to book him. Demento said, “Thanks a lot Vince McMahon. Now I’m getting phone calls from trade show agents who wanna book me. What do they think, I’m I’m stuck in the past? I didn’t ask for this crap. Because you guys went and put my picture up on your website, people think I’m out there and I’m still living Damian Demento. It’s in the past. And I wanna know who gave out my (expletive) phone number. I don’t wanna be getting phonecalls. I put wrestling, way behind me… I’m gonna find out… And it better not be who I think it is…” You can view that video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wuMCrLlV1_4.
There’s also a video where he challenges Vince McMahon. He says that if you search on YouTube, there’s a bunch of videos showing botched spots from wrestlers. He doesn’t want wrestlers taking these unnecessary risks because they can seriously hurt themselves. He challenges McMahon to put an end to wrestlers doing those high flying spots. He then switches subjects and encourages the usage of steroids. “Frankly, wrestling’s fake and I wanna see a freak show. I don’t want to see a 190 pound guy or a 210 pound guy. I want to see a freak out there. That’s what it’s all about.” He then says that he’s going to be 50 years old soon, and if he could get a hold of steroids, he would take them because he’s competing against a bunch of younger guys in the construction business who could take his spot. He feels if they could get make him more physically capable to do his job, he’d use them because it would mean more money and more food on the table for his family.

It should also be noted that he’s apparently “acting” to a degree in these videos. In one reply to a person on YouTube, he wrote, “You’re not supposed to laugh. Haven’t my acting classes paid off? I’ll have to crank it up a notch… without profanity. thanks, I think you “get it” unlike others.” Also, he had an old account on YouTube, but closed it a few weeks ago. He did a rant on the Iron Sheik, but thought it was a mistake after people started posting negative replies to the video. He said his views in the video weren’t his real views. He wrote, “My earlier rant that I removed was a bad commentary of Sheik. It got alot of attention, but folks thought they were my views. I removed the whole site because of all the negative comments, some of which were filled with cussing.”
