Guest Commentary: George “The Animal” Steele

“Thanks to Brady for asking my thoughts on The Macho Man. There are a lot of rumors floating around about why he was seemingly banned from WWE. I think that what happened with Randy, when his career was winding down with the WWF, Vince McMahon just loved Randy. After all everything Randy had done and he took him under his wing, and he wanted Randy after the ring was over with for him, he wanted him to be our spokesperson. He was traveling with Vince all the time. Randy was almost like a son, they were really tight. And then one day, we were at a TV meeting, and we got word that Randy, without calling Vince, had left and jumped to the WCW. I had never seen Vince McMahon broken before, he was crushed. It hurt him big time and I don’t think he ever got over that. I think that’s the real problem to be honest with you. I heard all this other stuff that I think is garbage when it comes to Randy and relationships with daughters and all that stuff… I don’t think that’s anywhere’s close to the truth.”–George “The Animal” Steele.

Macho Man

I am a first time writer but I had to write about my favorite wrestler growing up in the 80′s which of course would be The Macho Man Randy Savage. I really got into wrestling after watching Wrestlemania 2. The Mania 3 match vs Steamboat is still arguebly the best WM match in history. My favorite memories came as Macho and Hogan united as the Mega Powers and dominated the WWE. You always saw the signs that they wouldn’t be a team long as Macho never liked the way Hogan looked at Miss Elizabeth. Macho’s match with the Warrior at WM 7 was another great one. No matter who you were pulling for in that match, you had to respect the hell out of the both of them. The only time I didn’t enjoy watching Macho Man wrestle was in the WCW days. I enjoyed when he came in and shocked the world by winning the World War 3 batal royal to win the vacated WCW championship but after that and his NWO run it just wasn’t the same. I really wished Savage would have came back to the WWE one last time like Bret Hart is doing now. He would have had the crowd eating out of his hands. Well sadly he will get into the Hall of Fame but 1 year too late. I am going to close this by thanking Macho Man Randy Savage for all the childhood memories he gave me.



Hi all,

This is just to say that, as of this week, I’m stepping down from my position as a cohost of In the Room. I am at a point in my life where too much is going on for me to devote the needed energy to this wonderful program, and so I am calling it quits. You may have noticed that, the past few shows, my energy level has been down. My heart has just not been in it lately, and I think that means it’s time for me to step away.

I’ve had an amazing time – despite a few bumps in the road – recording these shows with Brady and DJ. We’ve met and interviewed many interesting personalities from the business we all grew up watching. It’s been a pleasure performing and editorializing for all of you, the listeners. I wouldn’t trade the time for anything. But the time has come for me to walk away. Thanks to Brady for giving me the chance to do this, and to DJ, Young John, and everybody else who has made doing this so much fun.

Brady will, I believe, be finding a replacement for me shortly. Keep listening, people. IN THE ROOM is not going away any time soon, even if my time here is over.

Take care,

Match 8
I Quit Match: WWE World (Raw) Champion John Cena vs. The Miz (with Alex Riley)
I really hope I’m wrong with what I expect will happen. Miz says Riley will fight. He also says I Quit like three times in a promo, after the bell rung. So technically the match was over right away. Something tells me Miz will be saying it again in about 20-25 minutes. Hahahaha, Cena tossed into the metal barrier and when the ref asks him he looks up matter-of-factly and says, “Nope.” They do a bunch of goofy stuff like this, with Miz keep telling him, “John I have a weapon, here is a chance for you to not have so much pain put upon you,” and such, and Cena replying, “You hit like a girl.” Eventually, Cena comes back, only to be beaten down again. Miz asks a kid at ringside to tell Cena to reply. Kid screams never. I’M READY TO QUIT. HAHAHAAHA. THEY STOLE THE ROCK/FOLEY ENDING!!! Wait, they got caught. Man… Cena wins with an STF [27:46].


A New Hope

Listen before I get any hopes up, this article will have NOTHING to do with Star Wars! Sorry Star Wars Nerds but I have a bigger issue!!

Today, I return to with a reason to be writing, I said I wouldn’t be back unless I had something and that day has finally come. Maybe it is the lack of entertainment that I currently have, I mean Smallville is finished and I have seen possibly every decent/good movie or TV series known to man so this may be my only way to kill time. Oh and by the way, your welcome for the variety in my shows, even when I don’t have Samoa sharing my time on the podcast I still give you the variety of entertainment such as my Smallville podcasts.

Ok, the obvious reason for me coming here today…


RIP Randy Savage

I don’t really write a ton on here. I keep trying to come up with ideas for a show and they are not working. So I have been waiting for perfect idea to hit me. Brady is the man and lets me stay on here and I thank him for that.

I just wanted to say RIP Randy Savage. Easily my favorite wrestler of all time. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.
