This morning, “The Vocal Minority”, typically a Saturday night radio program on Seattle’s 100.7 FM KQBZ The Buzz that has been subbing for the vacationing “Robin & Maynard Show”, opened the phone lines for people to call in and state whether they agree or disagree with hosts Nick and Steve’s claim that wrestling is full of gay overtones. This was to set the stage for their scheduled telephone interview with Shawn Michaels.
A character on the show named “Cousin Brewski”, who is a huge wrestling fan, asked HBK about his involvement in the “Montreal Screwjob”. HBK claimed that while he was in on the screwjob, he really had no idea how it was all going to go down. HBK also said that Triple H was just as involved in the screwjob as the principle players were.
Brewski also put over “The Mizz” (Brewski is apparently friends with “The Mizz”). HBK said he remembered “The Mizz”, but didn’t really talk to him much.
Nick and Steve asked HBK if he really had any animosity towards Hulk Hogan. HBK said that he had no animosity towards Hogan because he “understands what he’s all about”.
Nick and Steve then asked HBK if he felt that wrestling was full of gay overtones. HBK said that the majority of WWE’s audience is males aged 18-35. HBK then said that wrestling’s appeal to the male audience was that the audience could live vicariously through the superstars.
The interview was only about 5 minutes long and there was very little mention of SummerSlam.
