Former wrestling superstar King Kong Bundy recently appeared on Vince Russo’s podcast for Pyroandballyhoo.com, discussing various aspects of his WWE career. Bundy, in the lengthy interview, does not hold back. Below are some of the highlights from the conversation.
Bundy openly trashes Shawn Michaels and Bret Hart for their respective runs as WWE Champion:
“The advent on the downfall of this business was champions like Bret Hart and Shawn Michaels. Horrible world champions. Did not look like grown men in my opinion. I read Bret’s book. Wow. You cannot pick up a page without being amazed at how this man’s ego was out of control. Bret wrote in his book I called him ‘little man’. I always called him the ‘little hitter’ because he looked like a little kid in the ring. I come back six years later and he’s the world champion… Total piece of sh**, Bret Hart. I used to be friends with Bret. I stayed at his house one time back in the day.”
He spoke lowly of 1-2-3 Kid, also known as Sean Waltman:
“…I remember back then. I don’t know if you were in charge of the magazine then, but business was on its ass. You couldn’t give a ticket away and I look in the magazine and there’s a seven page spread on the 1-2-3 kid. I doubt Sean has ever sold a ticket in his life…Why would you ever make a seven-page spread on the 1-2-3 kid? Were you high? He has no arms. His arms are like my wrists!”
The former star also took a shot at WWE’s current programming and its competitors:
“They all look alike. That’s something I’ve been saying for years. You can’t differentiate one from the other. They all look alike. I never watch the show – never. It’s basically unwatchable.”

Well…Bundy not holding back. He doesn’t exactly come off as elegant…
