What is the wierdest interaction you've had with a "werker"?

I'll start.  During the KM "Smokey days" of "Buddy Rogers 1963", I started getting e-mails from a fellow poster named Jim Meyers, also known as George "The Animal" Steele".  I began conversing with him about whether this may be a hoax or not (we all know how that turned out) but later, he asked me for my phone number.  I found that  a bit strange (to date, I've only had phone conversations with maybe 5 people form the internet) but the curiosity led me to give it to him.  It turned out that Jim was mostly interested in getting me to purchase "Environmentally safe products/non cancer-causing products" from the MLM that he was a big part of. 
I still find it funny that I had to deal with George "The Animal" Steele the same way I have to deal with a common day solicitor calling my house looking for cash.

A lot of old wrestlers do the MLM/pyramid thing.

He was.  Once a carny, always a carny.  I wish wrestlers would get involved in an honest business, like Hardbody Harrison did.

So, nobody else has any wierd "Tommy Rich tried to drink the gasoline I was pumping" or "Rickey Morton robbed me at a gas station" stories?  I am surprised, as I think pretty low of wrestlers in general and don't think they're above doing anything detrimental to society.  Probably because I've listened for the past 5 years to werkers telling me that life is a work and that shitting in peoples bags/hazing newbies like we're 18 and in a fraternity/drugging chicks and looking the other way/ is either part of the "biz" or "acceptable".

Well, once during a break in a marathon UWF taping session around 1991, I was standing outside the facility they were using in Reseda, CA when Billy Jack Haynes walked up and asked if he could use my lighter. I handed it to him and he walked away without saying a word, taking my lighter with him.  I thought about going after him, but quickly decided .49 wasn't worth dying over.

Other than that I got nothing.

Oh a couple.

One was attending a Meadowlands card (early 90s) and stopping at a truck stop "Roy Rogers" for a bite to eat.  We walked in and there was SCOTT STEINER (screaming at one of the Roy Roger's workers) "I want a God damned 8 piece chicken. How the fuck can there not be any 8 piece chicken available?" This was during his "good guy" run with Rick so we were all taken aback. At the time we wrote it off to "I guess if you get a chair wrapped across your head enough times in one night this can happen". Over the years we hear of Scott's temper getting him in trouble here and there and it's no surprise.

It was 2002 when I was contacted by email by MISSY HYATT, who was looking for footage of herself in Memphis, World Class, UWF, ECW, AWF and WCW. She also was looking for EDDIE GILBERT footage. She stated that she had virtually nothing and anything I could do to help was appreciated. I sat down one day and put together as much Missy footage as I could handle but I remember putting things onto tape (VHS back then)  her debut (in World Class) the whole Gilbert-Tatum-Missy thing in the UWF, her arm-wrestling Paul E, and things like that. I package this stuff with an "Eddie" tape and send it off. A few days later she IMs me (!) She sends me this really nice pink "Thank You" card (real name Melissa Hiatt / Tampa, Florida) She periodically IMs me (I always remember it always being real late at night) and she sends me a copy of her book (before it was on the news stands) and a Christmas card a few weeks after that.

It some point in 2003 she drops me an email saying that she was working a show in the ECW Arena (wasn't an ECW Show though) and we should meet. She told me to get in early and before the show she was selling her Vixxxens stuff. So I got there early, walked in the building and sure enough she was selling her Vixxxens stuff.

Did I get some of "The Walking Riot" that night? Um, no. She looked horrible and she was so coked out of her mind that it took ten minutes of chatting before she remembered ever talking to me.

If you didn't get any, at least you're not in the
Tommy Rich category.

That's actually a really nice story other than the coked out part at the end, but she seemed genuinely appreciative.  How the hell did she get your e-mail and IM in the first place?

All of mine are ECW stories and NY indy stories from 2001-03 or so when I always used to go to the Elk's Lodge with Matt Striker for USA Pro shows (promoted by "Masked Maniac" Frank Goodman). 

So the ECW stuff is pretty boring.  New Jack would always hang out with the fans for hours before the show.  He was a hilarious guy, every other word was "mother fucker" though, and he could just talk and talk.  You had to be careful because he could snap, but I won't say anything bad about him.  The best story was when he was talking about his balcony dives and a fan challenged him to jump off this overhang near the top of the Lodge onto us.  Jack just raced into the building without a word and 5 minutes later, there he was on this thin ledge.  He was dancing and hanging his foot off and teasing a dive.  He was a little drunk and I thought for sure we were going to see him die and go splat right there on Queens Blvd.

After an ECW show we went to a strip club where a lot of the wrestlers were.  A really seedy place where they looked like ass but would bang you if you threw in another $5.  Sandman doing massive amounts of coke in a short period of time, right in front of the stage while watching the girls dance.  The bathroom's too good for him.  Oh, and I need to point out that he's still a bloody mess from the matches, needed stitches but didn't get them.  As we're leaving, he grabs my friend by the shoulder.  My friend has a few ECW T-shirts draped over it and Sandman's is on top.  He says "Thanks for buying that.  Do you want it autographed?"  My friend says yes.  Sandman takes out a marker and signes it, then presses it to his bloody forehead and basically underlines the signature in blood.  I'm not gonna lie, we were wasted at that point and thought it was pretty damn cool until the next morning.

I'm not going to get into all the indy stories to protect the innocent and not-so-innocent, but I was backstage at those and got to see some things.  After a main event "dream match" between Low-Ki and Sabu that was a disaster (both guys missed all their spots and the match was a 5-minute double-CO that had the fabs chanting "Refund"), Low-Ki just ripped the locker room apart and threw chairs, one of which missed me by a foot and another that hit some ticket-seller right smack in the head, knocking him down.  No one said anything, they just let him have his temper tantrum that lasted longer than the match had.  Sabu, on the other hand, could not have possibly cared less about the match sucking and called Low-Ki a mark for getting so upset.

And the big story is the time Tony DeVito threatened to kill me.  I don't know why, but he always hated me (imagine that).  One night I was sitting ringside and he had this guy in a rear chinlock and it was late (those USA Pro shows ran 6 hours) and I yawned.  And he was staring right at me when I did it.  He flipped the fuck out and and flew out of the ring right into my face screaming at me "Am I fucking boring you, you fucking skinny faggot?!"  He said the same line about 5 times, I guess he couldn't think of anything more clever.  I knew he wasn't working because he had always been cold towards me.  And a couple of minutes later, he threw his opponent right towards me over the railing and I barely got out of the way.  Striker insisted I come backstage the next time I was there and  I told him I didn't think that was a good idea, but he said it would be fine.  Well sure enough DeVito sees me and flips out again and wants to fight me.  So I'm thinking there's no way in hell I don't get my ass kicked this time so I might as well not act like a pussy so I stand up to him and ask him what the fuck his problem is.  I've never ever pretended that I'm a tough guy or that I can beat anyone in a fight but I think if it's going to happen you need to have some dignity as you're getting beaten.  Striker wasn't around so no one had my back.  So some words are exchanged and Raven is standing 5 feet away snickering that snicker that he has and just loving it and he's goading me on and saying "DeVito's a pussy, you got him" so obviously he was trying to get my ass beat even worse.   I believe this is the show that Al Snow and Coach were at too (they were riding together when they were the Heat announce team and Snow would take him along when he made his indy shots).  But some guys pull him away, DeVito screams back at me that I'm not welcome backstage  and he's fed up of  disrepectful non-workers being there (I was never disrespectful to anyone)  and the next one he sees who doesn't belong backstage he's gonna kill.  Someone whose name I won't mention says "Don't worry, he's not gonna be getting booked here anymore anyway."  And he wasn't so I didn't have to deal with him again.

My guess is through Jan Brisco.
