Episode 70 with Veda Scott
Wrestler, manager, commentator, interviewer, legal representative… Veda Scott wears a lot of hats in the world of pro-wrestling – not bad for someone who’s still relatively young in her career. That means lots to talk about, including lots about her career to date in Ohio’s Absolute Intense Wrestling, and her upcoming Steel Cage Match against Gregory Iron at their ‘Battle of the Sexes’ show on July 26th. We get the background to the feud, and why you should want to see the cage battle, and recount some of Veda’s most hardcore moments in AIW, ranging from bleeding all over the ring to being curb stomped into a kiddie pool full of cheeseburgers. We talk the art of the promo – something which Veda excels at, and try to throw out some advice to wrestlers who don’t feel comfortable selling themselves (or selling tickets) by simply talking. We talk about her transition to babyface in AIW and her turn to the heel side at SHIMMER this year, her favourite moments in SHIMMER and getting to do commentary for SHIMMER, WSU and more. We talk ROH‘s ‘Future of Honor’ show on July 27th, what that’s all about, discuss the future of the ‘Women of Honor’ in ROH, and even touch on The Romantic Touch. Veda gets all excited to talk Texas’ Inspire Pro Wrestling promotion, we discuss her cryptic “Europe” tweet recently and we continue our series of ‘Wacky Road Trip Stories’ with the tale of Veda, Canada, Whirlyball, snow and near-death. No hookers though. There’s also an intro where we run down the card for AIW next weekend and talk WWE‘s newfound interest in featuring women in multiple storylines. Check it out, everybody!
