On Being a Young Guy with ECW:
"I was young, single, with money in my pocket, and I got to see the world. I was brash."
On WWE's Treatment of the ECW Brand:
"It didn't sit right with anybody, but I think I was one of the first to really come to grips with it. I think a lot of the guys were just sitting around waiting for it to [change]. Once that reality came into play, I kind of got depressed. I didn't take it as seriously as I should have."
On Speaking Up About Some ECW Peers' Mistakes:
"I've seen these guys mess up chance after chance after chance. I've seen these guys mess up every opportunity while others never really got that opportunity. Somebody needs to say something about that, and I think it was me."
On Being a "Paul Heyman" Guy:
"We weren't viewed as ECW guys. We were viewed as Paul Heyman guys. It is what it is. Would I have liked to be viewed as a WWE guy? Yes. We were perceived as we would follow [Paul] to the ends of the earth. I grew tired of covering for all of Paul's lies and douche-baggery over the years. When I was there with WWE, I was basically the opposite of a Paul Heyman guy."
All that, plus Doring's thoughts on Tommy Dreamer's House of Hardcore and Shane Douglas' Extreme Rising promotions, teaming with Roadkill, looking like Bret Hart, and so ... much ... more.

Recap of Sean Oliver on In Your Head Wrestling Radio, 09/19/2012
by Vic Schiavone
Hosts Jack E. Jones and One Inch Biceps welcomed Sean Oliver of Kayfabe Commentaries to IYH Wrestling Radio for a record-breaking fifth appearance. Highlights included:
His opinion of Vince Russo:
“I’m still a little confused with...the hatred, the voracious hatred toward the guy...I never got it...The guy wrote wrestling shows; he was singularly charged with getting higher ratings every week than the previous week and firmly entrenched in that Monday night war...You got several shows a week, fifty-two weeks a year, plus Pay-Per-Views. That’s a lot of original material to come up with. You’re going to have a lot of stuff that hits the wall; you can’t hit ‘em all out of the park. But there’s no denying the guy was writing TV when that second boom period hit...I’m not saying he’s responsible for The Rock or responsible for (Steve) Austin, but he was writing what came out of their mouths when they were skyrocketing in popularity. There’s no denying that.”
His opinion on whether or not the Montreal Screwjob was a work:
“I think there’s a lot of evidence there that it was; I don’t know, I can’t say definitively that it was a work, but I always got the sense from seeing it the first time that it was, and here’s why: (A) There was a legitimate problem. Bret (Hart) had to get out of his contract. He does fancy himself a hero of Canada and didn’t want to lose the title in Canada. Vince (McMahon) had to get that strap off of him, and couldn’t pay him anymore. So there was a real conundrum there. Now, how do you resolve it where everybody comes out smelling like a rose? Bret can be free from the contract, go take his money in WCW, and have a tremendous, tremendous rub in public interest in him when he debuts on Monday night and save face in losing the belt...Now, from Vince’s standpoint; he gets the belt back, Bret goes, he’s free of having to pay that contract, and he’s now able to explore this avenue where he can spin himself off into a bit of a character...and create what went on to be...one of the most hated heels in wrestling ever...Isn’t it a coincidence that everybody made the right choice? It worked out for everybody...Now, (B)...The only people that were supposed to have known that this was going to happen were Vince McMahon and Shawn (Michaels) and maybe Triple H...and the referee...The guy in the production truck doesn’t know, the cameraman doesn’t know, the guy calling the shots in the production truck doesn’t know, we are to believe. The title changes hands, Shawn’s music hits, it’s ready, it’s cued, and the camera cuts to...not the new champion, but a super tight close-up of a disgusted, upset Bret Hart...We cut to the loser? That’s never happened. You cut to the shot of the winner holding up the belt or whatever they’re doing...the camera chooses Bret’s face to cut to? Why? Unless you WANT us to see the angry, upset, dejected, and screwed Bret Hart...That’s just one possible theory that I tend to believe.”
Other topics discussed with Sean included:
· Would he ever be interested in opening his own wrestling promotion?
· Is there anybody in the business he gets starstruck by?
· If Vince McMahon wanted to purchase Kayfabe Commentaries for the WWE Network, would he be willing to sell?
· What would be some of the things he’d like to ask Vince McMahon if he were interviewing him?

Here is Adam Pearce vs. Colt Cabana--Part 2 of the #7LevelsOfHate Rewind, showcasing stages 4-6.
In case you missed it, Part 1 is below, as well as information about their seventh and final match, which takes place this Saturday, October 27 in
Independent wrestling icons Colt “Boom Boom” Cabana and “Scrap Iron” Adam Pearce have spent the better part of the last two years decimating one another throughout the United States in what many insiders believe is 2012’s professional wrestling Feud of the Year, aptly entitled #7LevelsOfHate.
After losing the legendary NWA World’s Heavyweight Championship to Cabana on two occasions, Pearce laid it all on the line and issued the ultimate challenge to settle this vendetta: A battle to the bitter end through the ultimate Best-of-Seven series. #7LevelsOfHate features seven unique and equally brutal stipulation matches in seven different cities.
The premise was simple: if Pearce were to win he’d get the validation and retribution he craves. If Cabana were to take the series, Pearce would leave the National Wrestling Alliance FOREVER. Between the chaos of the matches themselves, the hatred and bloodshed, and the epic storytelling in an era where the steak takes a backseat to the sizzle, #7LevelsOfHate has run through six stages of the series to rave reviews by fans and insiders alike.
As the series is set for the seventh and final war – taking place October 27, 2012 in
This fantastic 20:00 feature is the first of a two-part video rewind created by the talented Steve Ward in advance of the October 27, 2012 final war between Cabana and Pearce and chronicles the origins of the series, and every step along the way. From the confrontations and contract signings, to the matches and mayhem, #7LevelsOfHate Rewind will tell a tale sure to be remembered.
After viewing this video we are convinced that you will come to the same conclusions as fans who have witnessed it live: Colt Cabana and Adam Pearce have delivered a performance for the ages in this series; giving wrestling fans the world over a true and history-making alternative to the campy foray displayed on mainstream television. Of this there can be no doubt.
And now, we present #7LevelsOfHate Rewind - Cabana vs. Pearce: Stages 1-3. Parental discretion is advised.
