Larry Sweeney Interview Recap


Larry Sweeney joined IYH on September 9th. Sweeney kicked off the show by saying that he is moving to Chicago. Sweeney admits that the blog he had written on Myspace was a mistake and is moving to Chicago after a fourteen month hibernation from the business.

Jack asks about how Larry feels about the response of his recent promo for AAW. Sweeney says it feels great that people have commented positively on the promo. Sweeney doesn?t need any time before a promo to cut a successful promo.

Sweeney suggests that people check out the IWC. www.iwcwrestling.com Sweeney doesn?t understand how people do not know about the company and puts the company over heavily.

Sweeney continues to talk about promos and says that he doesn?t need to pre-plan his promo and whatnot.

Jack brings up Chikara and Sweeney keeps up with the product to a point. Sweeney says that all of his best friends compete for Chikara. Sweeney does say that he doesn?t buy DVD?s or anything.

Sweeney talks about all the things he has accomplished in wrestling. He mentions that he has wrestled Jake Roberts and Greg Valentine among others. Sweeney notes that once again this is just a job. Sweeney would go back on the road for ROH but he doesn?t enjoy flying. His desire to go back to ROH on a scale of 12 is currently a 5. That could change if he were given a good spot on the roster.

Jack mentions Pinky Sanchez and Sweeney?s hate for the guy. Sweeney says that Sanchez is a douche bag.

OIB asks who was Sweeney?s favorite person to manage. Sweeney says that Greg Valentine was his favorite. Sweeney doesn?t believe that Valentine will retire and says that Valentine still has plenty to give.

Barbie brings up Sara Del Ray and asks if Sweeney is surprised at how popular she has gotten. Sweeney isn?t aware that Del Ray has ?blown up? as she isn?t on WWE. Sweeney does have respect for her.

Sweeney doesn?t believe that everyone involved in the business aim to make it to the WWE. Sweeney says that if Vince McMahon brought Sweeney in to be the general manager he knows he would be great.

Sweeney talks about only being a manager in ROH for two years and how people obviously overlooked his wrestling ability. Sweeney wrestled for Chikara and IWC at the time but a lot more people watch ROH. Sweeney mentions that he got paid well for what he was doing in ROH. Sweeney says that he enjoys psychology while the current guys in ROH are the opposite. ?No, I never wanted to wrestle in ROH?.

Jack brings up Claudio Castagnoli and Sweeney says that Claudio always liked to eat at Subway. Sweeney and the hosts proceed to have a discussion about subs from Subway.

Jack says that some fans are saying that Sweeney sounds bitter. Sweeney says that it comes along with the business because you get beaten up for little money. Sweeney admits to being bitter. Sweeney notes that he needs to find a career now that he is 29. Sweeney goes into some personal examples. He mentions that he had a great girlfriend but wrestler was more important.

On that note, that is the end of the interview as Claudio was scheduled to follow.

Hey there guys--thanks for bringing fans an update as to how Larry Sweeney's doing, as he's incredibly talented and has brought us so much great wrestling and entertainment over the years.

I do feel that, as awkward as the communicative terrain can be, you did drop an assortment of balls, helmets, and assorted athletic equipment as far as asking him very pointed, honest questions about his disorder, how he's doing, and whether he should really be wrestling or not at this point. I understand that he's very much his own man, making his own choices, and that you didn't want to insult his obviously considerable intelligence. At the same time, I'm not sure continuing to wrestle with little reward, even financially (far from the most important component here) is the wisest choice, and I wonder if you really engaged that here.

As a fan who knows nothing about the in-ring nuts-and-bolts of things, I definitely agreed with his philosophy as far as stalling and storytelling, but took major issue with his dismissals of a women's wrestling scene very rich in talent, not to mention the craft of lucha libre (late-breaking news "shocker": Lucha "looks choreographed", as if that somehow renders it worthless!).

Not having listened to the show before, I don't know if you approach things from a "journalistic", "entertainment" standpoint, or some measure of both, but you guys seemed somewhat more concerned with coming across as sophomorically "edgy" than rigorous or responsible. I very much enjoyed your interview with awesome wrestler and all-around very affable human being Claudio Castagnoli, for which I commend you; your post-interview commentary, which sprinkled in its share of homophobic, rape-referencing nonsense, motivated me to stop listening well before the program's conclusion.

Thanks for taking the time to read this, and for covering pro wrestling.

The whole situation just seems weird to me. There is great evidence that our bodies may look a lot alike but function very differently from one another. Getting your heart rate over 120 bpm) for at least 30 minutes a day, four to five days a week, you will see significant improvements in your physique, stamina, alertness and ability to focus, stress levels, and sleep patterns.

According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, by age 60, most men have some degree of prostate enlargement. According to representatives from GHC, there is no one "right" type of candidate for the fellowship program. The third entry in the BioShock series, Infinite seems like a completely new game.
