At Russell may be out there that helped push over the top. Then you're right that I had a couple of dot carters and then. Yeah over the top rope without killing yourself and I'm gonna do a whole dvd settled yet. Cold hot debate. Diamond Dallas page story cute. Not altered bit odd to be living. They're diving bell straight story and we're gonna put Udall saying. But tell you what men are more okay this running back we lay and every signal talk. You said some that was at during turner OGU one point two million so when when when WW we acquired Debbie CW. What did did turner have to honor all the dead BZW contract how'd that work. Every one of them while now. Vince choke hold that note the lower contractually he just a joke I keep our business. We're all the big contracts all the big guys are and how little me on the spot bird that was like the first big contract I'd site. Know what I was Russell Randy savage and may have bang Goldberg and Joseph Malone and all that start. I I wouldn't I wouldn't. They give any money comparatively to everybody they could separate figures. And I've got are got my first big deal. About yelled. Guess a year in apple toward a company went upside down I guess a year and a little over a year. And so loud first are gonna pay. And you know to walk away from it I just knew I won I knew my whole life I was demonstration at WW. Because. Even know we did kick their butt for a lot of expert. The WWW in Asia and the reason why why. Is because. It's going to rain had and the family. They care more about the business and any date where Ted Turner. Who then became a real well. Really did it. You know they didn't want to be the wraps one network that I know for a fact current bishop was buying the company. For sixty million. And he didn't wanna put it on TV yes they made known as part of the contract. And number mr. Jay John McCain admitted. He bite that you know what make anybody right now we're losing money. This cancel wrestling legend like I don't cancel the show who waited and give our resumption time themselves somewhere else because he's yeah he's got everything together let's hit fifty million and need to assume all the contracts. All the big contracts. And he did not cancel wrestler. Amazing part what one idiot out. Though. It took the way it took away. That didn't see W you know I know that slope you know no I may have let alone you know Dexia while the world of that but. Elliott was what it was a known history written by the winners which is one reason why it was a little topped remark first got up there. But you know I took it shouldn't just like a man and you know what I assailant or something and you take it to the bank so. Well actually somewhat more to do it in that. At some point what does not work and I'll just move on from there are so it was a blessing ever happened to me all the way around and you're writing a book these. I'm actually writing another book right now outscored positively unstoppable. Not art. It's it's really based on the art of owning it. And are really explain what it is good it's completely different a reasonable person that region. Now so it's it's really going to be it's going to be an awesome book really excited about it there's got to be is going to be about what you would grow dale. An appeal rodeos publishing but they are drop in used publishing company they also read sit there is meant to help. Let me tell him. Every magazine you go out there that actually make some jumpers in the world that's the concept paper published. We are of course target to be one and only DDP he will be in Memphis at FedEx or. Tomorrow night for grizzlies resting now I do not miss that couple more things before we let you go BP. I'm what do you make of the WW product today I grew up watching you it does BCW watching the attitude airy you know I'm 25 years old so. That's the WWF and AB CW that I knew it was just so much more risque they took so many more risk it was a different product. But I do feel like it's actually in terms of superstar quality. It's it's sort of back up that level what do you make of the Debbie W product today. I tell you know at least aptly today. I don't even know how to do some shut the deal I mean really down the fact but Djokovic. They're unbelievable. The wind. Have jumped to a whole yes or it was every guy would watch woman's about Muslim my body would you switch up and address and Sherri Martel. They'll regular I would really large but these girls today like Charlotte players. I agree that that is you know. Her daddy daughter but he did that daddy daughter from her beat you achieve unbelievable it is you know I would let the receiver reduce the Shelley. Enterprise. But. Yeah I think did a lot all the young KG they've got. It and the criminal division that they call this. Two multiplied. That I guess that's the weight limit to a plot but her big shock you guys startled to graduate backlit. You know a lot of red hysteria hmm unbelievable and those cycles it's an all those guys but we can't clamp down on dig. Unlike the product right now and I loved what they did Goldberg. Yeah it was you know it was to deal was. Vindication in the book or so. The thing that didn't work out the old baby the way they should know what the brick building backing and put him in this spot. And not explosive because I assume fifteen years but it took about get a person my rental fifteen years completed Barack. Pursuant to what struck me in good working out into the Russell he's been in a way. And get the ring with the big east Brock Lesnar. But our battery have been me. Go to I doubt that that should be amazing last thing for let ego. Dallas. Obviously one of the things you've done since retiring from from resting full time is. You now have yoga. You now have these dvds and in my friend David is a testimony of may to walk and testimonial he lives by and swears by U yoga. What how do you make the transition because you think of yoga as like this you know. Yeah very serene in your very mellow and you're written by not that man like you're diamond Dallas page and forget the BCW. You go from being a re a professional wrestler whose intense as hell all the time to want it to get into yoga how does that transition happen. First of all I'd never call it you know. Per carry add power. Either deep yoga. Or DP why. No it's sort of like you know. There's movies right leaders did you movies. And then there is able to reject. Solar. Or carry a movie that I wouldn't it about probably didn't do what is completely different. You've been yelled your mom Asia. I developed. What I blew my back at our presenters started burdened by my career consult with a sporty. I wouldn't 969798. One toppled the world and then. What back eruption by L or no are so badly I at least especially coming of them go wrestle again. So I try any. And that's when they introduced me to yoga. But it wasn't giving me everything I wanted to look at that I didn't think of those yoga position. Thanks to him the rehabilitation. Techniques. Stone with body on body old school Kallis static. With a slow bird movement. And then I put together mystical dynamic resistance. And imagine. Lifting weights weather slides are dumb bells are practiced. Shoulder presses. And I had in their present substantiated. I'd be gauging the muscles. As a group what position to another and what happens is every time waxed or gauger muscle. Your heart has to be faster to get a life. And a muscle. So what I did by accident. Today is so deep field. Is kick ass cardiovascular program. Or dramatically. Increase your flexibility. Straighten your core like never before. All we may animal chewing impact. I've seen Chris Jericho at work in the ring lightly. Up. Replaced war he's amazing at 41 line Chris Lewis back. Couldn't stand. Couldn't wrestle. I said of the videotape of the disabled veterans. Not only helped walk right in your receipt that video. Yeah actually I have seen that if us are so it's like. Fifty million views on YouTube but CNET that's like your of your best testimonial. Well it's age it's the it's almost the resurrection you know it's like whoa. But you know I want to mad you know reduce crime applaud his entire journey. And five minutes later he called me back recently. Where every you want me to do all do it. In five weeks huge 80% pain free. In three months he was a 100%. Paid three. And headlined. Wrestle mania against are now six years later. He still head lying in mania he's 46. He does. Wide net work out palace that he does that it is for the doctor agents tiles. Saying go to the you can see AJ you're stopping you guys are deeply yoga. Dustin groves. Jack Ryder. That there's there's a long list of guys do it. I think those guys can take. Painkillers the way we used to you know they they tried all that out. Late if you got a pain killer. You're you're probably not even on the road literature at all. Because bottom line is that it I would say that the wellness program to WW runs today. Is that maybe the best in the world out sort of about NBA NFL. They'll MLB. Nobody is on top of that the weight of the derby is. And if it'll keep the guys around for a lot longer and deep yoga is the pain reliever. It's the strength and courage is to preventative maintenance fruit don't start the guys. And you get a guy like art aboard him. It's so light Saber eager to do you GOV dot com. It is to others yelled let's go to. Where it says success stories or more and director construction or one that's. We are just about. Saying I can't make people say to stop that that you know that they were right up on Twitter.
