Left My Wallet: Erik Watts on being a QB, DDP's influence, WWF run


Left My Wallet returns with former WCW and WWF star and former University of Louisville quarterback Erik Watts.

Erik talks about his time playing at Louisville under legendary coach Howard Schnellenberger, what goes through the mind of a QB while on the field, what he looks for when assessing potential pro quarterbacks, and dissecting the games of fellow alums Lamar Jackson and Teddy Bridgewater.

Erik also talks some wrestling, what it was like growing up as the son of Bill Watts, the process of going to WWF and what eventually led to his release, the celebrities he's met through wrestling, and how Diamond Dallas Page has helped change his life.

I am also joined by Fight Game Media's John Larocca, a manager and booker for APW in the Bay Area. He actually saw a Tekno Team 2000 vs. Heavenly Bodies house show match from 1995 that he wanted to talk about.

Enjoy some talk about football, wrestling, the intricacies of quarterback play and tag team wrestling.
