    Former WWE/AWA announcer Ken Resnick joins us live tonight!!!

    in Wrestling

    Ken was doing sports on the six and ten o'clock news for the NBC affiliate in Rochester, and he hosted an interview segment for a celebrity golf tournament. Verne Gagne was there, and he interviewed him. At the party afterward, Verne and Ken talked. Then, two weeks later, Ken received a phone call at the station. It was Verne, and he wanted to meet for lunch. Gene Okerlund was going to work for the WWF and Verne offered Ken a job. Resnick accepted, and it turned out that he would have some pretty big shoes to fill with the departure of Okerlund, who had created an indelible persona of his own in the AWA. Resnick credits Blackjack Lanza, with being a teacher and supporter in both the AWA and later the then-WWF, helping him get hired there in 1986. Ken met Vince and talked for quite a while


    When he went to the WWF, he learned so much about production and preparation. In all the time I was in the AWA, we never had a formal production meeting. In the WWF, we had extensive meetings. They were producing numerous programs each week, and were trying to motivate the viewer to make a certain purchase, and the preparation and focus were unbelievable."


    As he reflects on his time in wrestling, Resnick is grateful, and humbled

    The Legendary Hector Guerrero comes to Pipebomb Radio Tonight!!!

    in Wrestling

    Hector is a second generation wrestler, son of the late legendary wrestler Gory Guerrero. Hector was born in Mexico City one of four sons and two daughters.Hector began his pro career in 1973 with his first match in Juarez Mexico. Although his pro career may not have started until 1973 Hector grew up in the business with the family traveling and then settling down in El Paso, TX.


    Unlike most kids Hectors family had a wrestling ring in the back yard instead of swings so he learned a great deal from his father Gory. When his father retired from the ring he started a wrestling promotion business running in El Paso & Juarez that the whole family participated in. Hector was able to learn both sides of the business; wrestling & promoting. Hector has traveled around the world wrestling since his career began going to Japan several times, Championship Wrestling from Florida, MidSouth, AWA, Crockett, WWE & WCW, Mexico, California just to name a few. 


     


    He has also appeared in two movies as a stunt double the first was the Bad NewsBears go to Japan where he doubled Tony Curtis to wrestle Japan great Antonio Inoki and in a movie called the Bad Guys were he doubled for Adam Baldwin.


    Although retired from the ring Hector has 50 plus years in the business. Hector had a successful run of 8 years with TNA Impact Wrestling as a Spanish Color Commentator until lately their agreement has terminated. It's nice to see Gory's legacy still living on with his son's and his Grandson Chavo Jr. Still carrying on the Family Tradition. Viva La Raza!
