Arda Ocal (@arda_ocal) and Jimmy Korderas (@jimmykorderas) of #AftermathRadio on thescore.com and iTunes chat with former WWE superstar Bull Buchanan . Highlights:
About his wrestling school " B2 Wrestling School". and what are his thoughts on the next generation superstars in professional wrestling today, and getting trained in wrestling the right way:
"Theres just a lack of places for guys to go, If you can find someone to train you, you go right to the big show which is WWE. Theres lots of indy promotions out there, but theres a big difference doing this part time and making a big living doing this. Cause when your living your lives on this, your living a little more pro-active. And you realize your only getting paid is if your putting the people in the seats".
Speaking about the first time he came to WWE about being the authority figure character, and his thoughts on the that before teaming with John Cena. And also discussing how he was approached about teaming with John Cena and being known as B2, did he feel that John Cena would be a huge success as WWE Superstar that he is now:
What lead to his return to Monday Night RAW on Nov 14/2011 on the segment "This is your life" with Mick Foley and John Cena. How did he get contacted about making that apperance:
"Johnny called me and said they had an idea and asked if I was available , and I said shoot yea, so they flew me up to Boston. It was alot of fun, cause I got to meet some of the guys that I havent got a chance to meet. I got to hang out with some my buddies, Big Show, The Armstrongs, Teddy Long, Mark Henry. It was alot of fun man, alot of fun."
Discussing what the independent wrestling scene is like in Georgia, and talking about how at his wrestling school his schedule there is rather flexible:
Sharing stories about teaming with The Big Bossman ( Ray Traylor ), and also taking about what was it like working and traveling with Ray Traylor:
"Ray was one of the greatest guys Ive ever met. He really got me straight with the money, He'd really showed me alot in the ring, and really showed me alot of the stuff outside the ring. Traveling with him was a blast, but at times it would be a rollacoaster (laughs)."
What was the best advice he was given to become a professional wrestler that he can now give to some of his students at his wrestling school that want to enter the world of professional wrestling:
Is there any plans for him to write a book in the future about his career in professional wrestling:
"I dont know, Ive seen alot of guys do that. I really don't know if I got anything to say that anyone would actually pay to hear ( laughs). To me, some of the best stuff never gets told."
