To hear the full interview head on over to www.InYourHeadOnline.com
Spike Dudley joins the show. Dudley will be competing for New World Wrestling in Sandwich, MA.

Spike loves competing on the independent shows. “Kind of reminds you how you got into the business.” He would like to compete more with the big guys compared to fighting someone his own weight.

His match with Mike Awesome at Guilty As Charges 2000 was the event was when he blew his knee out and cost him six months. Spike doesn’t believe it was that good of a match, but it had several table spots. He blew his knee out when he slammed his knee against the guard railing. Spike didn’t realize it was hurt severely and competed for two months afterwards.

Jack brings up Bam-Bam Bigelow throwing Spike into the audience. Spike brings up that it was his first pay per match. Spike does bring up when they did the spot, and people “parted like the red sea” so Spike hit nothing but concrete. Spike says that he owes a lot to Bam-Bam for his career.

Spike puts over New Jack as a great guy. He always got along with New Jack. He doesn’t think the stories he has are appropriate to be said over the air. Spike didn’t know that he was going to be doing the stage dive with New Jack.

“Great, brilliant booker.” When asked about Paul Heyman.
He didn’t have a gimmick before Spike Dudley, he was just Matt Hyson.

When he went to WWE he was told to tone it done with the whole LSD part of the Spike Dudley gimmick. Spike really enjoyed the Spike/Molly Holly angle. Spike was upset when WWE pulled the plug on the angle.

Spike didn’t believe being put in the Cruiserweight division was any issue. He was glad to get the chance to work with several guys like Rey and Noble.

He doesn’t know where the whole boss angle was heading. He was frustrated with the angle being pulled, just like his angle with Molly.

He doesn’t know whether the ECW guys got a fair chance. He does think that RVD didn’t get a fair chance to carry the ball for the company.

His most painful bump was when he teamed with Balls to face the Dudley Boys on a PPV and he thought he shattered his heel and was unable to walk for three weeks. The spot when La Resistance missed the table looked bad but wasn’t as bad. Though, he still has lasting effect from the spot and has nerve damage.

Spike says the whole spot where Undertaker choke slammed him over to the floor was his idea and needed to convince Taker to do the spot. He puts Taker over as a very respectable person.

Spike has never came across a guy who doesn’t take care of someone in the ring. Well, actually he changes that stance and brings up a story from his ECW days which is very interesting and has to be heard!

To continue the interesting portion of the show, someone calls in and Spike believes he is cutting a promo on him! It turns out to be a wrestler from New World Wrestling.
Spike shares his thoughts on the Brother Runt gimmick in TNA. He has mixed thoughts to say the least.

Find out if Spike would go back to TNA given the chance.
Spike’s training school is brought up and he believes he would be a good trainer because he has had success in the business and will run shows in front of a live audience.

A caller asks if Spike has ever gone through anxiety attacks before his matches. Spike has never been so nervous to not go out to the ring.

Spike doesn’t have really anything to say to his fans other than to support the independents.
