The Night The Macho Man Almost Murdered Bill Apter, Marti Belle Talks Her Unique Look, Vince Russo’s New Reality TV Series

Vince Russo’s THE BRAND which could be both SEEN and HEARD daily on the and, was highlighted this week by an interview with Current TNA Knockout and original member of the Doll House, Marti Belle and the ORIGINAL wrestling journalist, the ONE and ONLY Mr. Bill Apter.

On this week’s episode of Vixens Who Rule, Vince is joined by the beautiful, talented and VERY EXOTIC Marti Belle, who talks about her roots growing up in the heart of New York and her path into professional wrestling

Here’s an excerpt of Marti discussing her unique hairstyle and whether it’s been a help, or hinderance to her wrestling career:

“Let me give you the kicker about my hair and wrestling. When I first started wrestling…I was told I had to straighten my hair. I was told that my hair, like this, did not look good…..he flat out told me that does not look good, that does not look professional.”

In the first part of this extremely unique and special interview, Vince chats with Bill Apter, the ORIGINAL wrestling journalist. The heart of Pro Wrestling Illustrated going all the way back to the early 80’s, Bill Apter covered pro wrestling in the days of kayfabe when NOBODY went near the locker room. His stories are absolutely legendary, and in the first part of this interview he covers: having heat with “Classy” Freddie Blassie, Ernie Ladd asking a waitress to sit on his face, first magazine shoot interview EVER with Bruno Sammartino and the night the “Macho Man” Randy Savage almost killed him. If you are a wrestling fan—this is an ABSOLUTE must listen!

In this excerpt, Bill discusses that infamous Macho Man Story:

“Randy Savage was very, very sensitive about his age. So we came up with an angle where a fan yelled out ‘old man’…..the story comes out, and I’m in California….and Eric Bischoff comes in the front door and he has some words with me. And he said ‘Oh, by the way, Randy Savage wants to kill you’.”
