By: Bob Colling of http://colling1989.proboards41.com/index.cgi interview recaps from past and present

Bill Demott was the guest on the In Your Head Show hosted by Jack, One Inch Biceps and Barbie Richards at http://www.inyourheadonline.com

The first caller Adam asks who Bill Demott?s toughest opponent was. Demott says it was tough to deal with the New World Order. Giant and Scott Norton are mentioned.

Demott says people have to expect 300lbs wrestlers to not be gentle.

Another caller, Brian asks for Bill?s opinion on the Power Plant. Bill enjoyed going down to the training facility on his few days off.

Bill doesn?t necessarily believe that there was a different style between WWF and WCW. He mentions that the ring in the WWF was 20?? compared to 16??.

Bill agrees that Johnny Ace, JJ Dillion and Jim Ross all at one point, or currently get a bad rap because they are the ones telling people that they are fired.

After leaving the WWE a few years ago, Bill did eight months of nothing and went and did a few independent bookings.

Bill mentions that he is retired, and is now a behind the scenes kind of guy. His last match was in October along with the Dudley Boys.

Bill hopes that he uses the same techniques as his trainer Johnny Rodz used for him.

Bill?s worst injury was when he broke his neck, against Sean O?Haire.

He doesn?t regret one thing he has ever done. Mentions breaking all of his toes and ankles.

Jack brings up the Tough Enough incident where Jonah disrespected the wrestling business, according to Bill.

Bill says he missed the territory days by a few years. He broke into the business in 1988. He doesn?t believe a lot of people have the patience to teach ?old school? wrestling.

A caller mentions the Hardcore Holly incident in beating up Matt Cappotelli on Tough Enough, which was a common thing in the territory days.

?I think everyone was afraid of the moonsault.? When asked if anyone was afraid of the moonsault.

He says that he would have kept with what the WWE did during the Invasion angle. He agreed with not being able to have a faction of thirty or so wrestlers. A lot of people got written out.

Bill says that he heard about WWF wrestlers being stiff towards WCW wrestlers. He never had a problem but saw a lot.

Bill says that is was very frustrating when he would see WCW wrestlers not giving their all, and getting away with it.

Bill says that it was great working with Major Gunns. However, near the end she seemed to have changed and improvised a lot.

He says it was true that Van Hammer did not want to be ?out ranked? by a girl. So instead of Private Stash, he was changed to Major Stash.

Bill loved the Misfits in Action gimmick. He says that they got tone downed as they were getting over.

Bill tells a story about having Hugh G. Rection under his name on live television on Nitro. Which he was told that it would never happen.

Bill talks about not getting an action figure; he calls it a ?doll? until he gets one.

?If anyone thought he was going to be as over as he was, they are a liar? referring to the popularity of Goldberg.

Bill puts over Goldberg as he worked hard to get his spot. He says he doesn?t fault anyone other than the people who complained about him.

Bill says that Goldberg is a cool guy.

Bill says the First Family was another version of the Dungeon of Doom. He would like to see factions come back.

He says that Kevin never lied to him and told him what he needed to do at any given time.

He says that having a pay per view with all cage matches (TNA Lock Down) is tough. As everyone would need to follow the first two guy?s performance.

Bill says that he hasn?t even heard of TNA until recently.

He has a pretty good amount of scares from the WING hardcore days.

Bill tells a story about Leatherface would actually cut people with an actual chainsaw.

Bill believes that hardcore wrestling is over. There isn?t an impact anymore.

A caller asks how Eric Bischoff is like outside the wrestling business. Bill says that he is quiet but approachable. He respects Bischoff for giving him his first job.

Palmer Cannon, former WWE developmental wrestler calls in. Bill puts Palmer over as ?the most underrated performer?.

Cannon says that anything that was heard about Bill and his training was blown way out of proportion.

Bill was not in the New World Order because he wasn?t apart of the ?in crowd?. He says there is no way that they could bring it back.

He began using Bill DeMott when Vince McMahon and Kevin Dunn saw him on Tough Enough, and they wanted to see that type of person on their television.

He and his wife have open their own company, New Energy Wrestling. He is currently focusing on the training portion of the company. He hopes that the company will be up in the summer time.

He also has a book and is trying to figure out a publisher for the book. Speaking of books, he did read a little bit of Angle?s book, Austin?s book, Dr. Death Steve Williams and really wants to read Chris Jericho?s book.

He had a tough time doing commentary because he wanted to be in the ring. However he did like vocally putting the guys over. He would jump at the chance to be either a interviewer or commentator to get guys over.

He puts Michael Cole over as a guy being able to convey wrestling even though he has never been in-ring.

He says the he screwed himself over when he showcased that he was a threat, being a big guy who could not only wrestle but cut a promo.

He has nothing but respect for Vince McMahon and still occasionally talks to him.

Bill tells a rib story about being really drunk and Rey Jr. driving his lincolin car. Bill wanted to sleep in his car.

Chavo proceeded to beat up Bill and Bill ripping off the back door of his car. Bill says that Jarrett must have been intimidated by him for three months.

Bill says in WCW their was water, beer and peanut butter. WWE has Gatorade and is more business orientated.

He mentions that if people weren?t happy with a storyline in WCW, they would no show and put people on the spot.

Bill thanks his fans for their support over the years to end the interview
