[1992-09-12-USWA-TV] Interview: Buddy Landell / Interview: Tommy Rich

Recommended Posts

Buddy Landell is angry about his head being busted open and sends in a taped interview from his couch. But Budro has time on his side just like Mick Jagger. Awesome.

 

Next, we get a promo from Tommy Rich.

 

Two guys who sometimes disappear, and you forget how effective they are because their presence has been a little sporadic through the years.

Landell cuts a quasi-babyface promo, vowing revenge on Bill Dundee and the Junkyard Dog for splitting his head open.

 

Rich tapes a promo regarding a first-blood rematch. Weird that they're pushing JYD as the "Big Black Hope" considering what already has gone on in WCW. Was Snowman making noise again?

So JYD was Dundee's partner of choice, eh? It makes sense, considering that his regular partner Lawler is busy with the Gilberts.

 

JYD as the "great black hope"? In 1992? Not even close, Papa. If Snowman (or the threat of Snowman) was behind this, he ought to have at least picked someone younger to throw what little weight he had behind. If this was Papa's own doing, he's way more behind the times than any of us ever dreamed.

 

Tommy's promo was right on point, but Budro's, as noted above, tended to be almost babyface-like, especially when he talked about his kids seeing his head busted open. Then again, faces sound like heels more and more often, so why shouldn't the reverse be true sometimes as well?

I think you guys are overthinking this one. That "great black hope" line was...well, just a line thrown out. It didn't mean anything here. Just a line for heat

Not buying the excuse, AJ. If you need to throw out random lines for heat, you and your angle are in big trouble. If you don't want your audience to think of JYD as the next black world heavyweight champion (whiich I'm assuming this means), then either tell Buddy not to say it or edit the reference out if he ad-libs it. Simple as that. Just because it's wrestling doesn't mean you can say anything and everything in the name of so-called "heat".
