Recap of Perry Saturn on In Your Head Wrestling Radio, 08/29/2012

by Vic Schiavone

Hosts Jack E. Jones and One Inch Biceps welcomed former ECW tag team champion and current member of Extreme Rising Perry Saturn to IYH Wrestling Radio. Highlights of this interview included the following:
What were his memories of Paul Heyman in ECW?
“Paul E was really great at putting us all together. He would do everything half-assed, last-minute which would make us all nuts but when it was done it was a good show all the time...Paul E would get us fired up. Paul E’s a great motivator, and he would convince us how everyone in the world was against us and it was only him on our side...Paul E would get everything out of you just by talking to you. There’s been so many times when I’ve been so mad at Paul I’m gonna kill him the second I see him. Two minutes after I see him I’m laughing and hugging him and telling him I love him. It’s unbelievable how he is. Paul E really loves wrestling, no way around it...not the wrestling business, but wrestling.”
Where did he enjoy working more, ECW or WCW?
“ECW. WCW was like being in Hell; it was the worst place in the world. Nobody was happy there. Everybody hated their job; it was horrible there...Everybody was unhappy, from the top to the bottom, and when everybody’s unhappy it’s a miserable place to be. Everybody just bitched all day. WCW made you hate wrestling; it was horrible back there...There was no boss in charge, anybody could do whatever they wanted, everybody would bitch all the time, the top guys never made shows; everybody was unhappy...The only thing that was good about that place was the money; they paid you good money.”
Perry also discussed other topics, such as:

Who came up with the finisher “Total Elimination”?

Who does he think was the toughest wrestler alive?

When did drugs start to affect his in-ring work?
