- Chris Jericho will be hosting this year’s Revolver Magazine Golden Gods Awards in Los Angeles this April. As previously reported CM Punk has been nominated for the Most Metal Athlete award.
“I don’t know how long Dutch [Mantel] had been in the business when I came along, but I know it was a long time. And Dutch was always a helluva worker inside the ring and a great promo on the mic,” Steve said.
“We were working a Thursday spot show in Lebanon, TN. I was working a guy in a mask that particular night. Can’t remember his name.”
After the match Dutch said “Brother, what in the Hell was that sh!t? I was dumb enough to reply-It was a match…That was the absolute drizzling sh!ts…Really? I asked…Yeah, I was plenty stupid back then. He then proceeds to rip me apart for at least a lifetime it seemed. He called Chris Champion over and demonstrated how I had screwed up half the wrestling holds I had used. This ass chewing session was a 9.9 out of 10. I think he actually invented a few new cuss words to use on me. The Dutchisms were relentless, ruthless, and certainly unparalleled at this point in my life. Then he points at a steel chair…You see that steel chair, right there? Yes… I want you to grab that chair and watch every match on the card. That’s the only way you’re going to learn this sh!t. He turned and walked away. He had just given me some of the best advice anyone had ever given to me in the wrestling business. And his delivery and technique were spot on. I got it. From that point on for the rest of my career I watched damn near every match of every card my whole career. Obviously when I was white hot in the WWE I did not have time to watch as much, but I’ll never forget that night.”
