INDY NEWS: WCW Announcer & Westwood One’s Chris Cruise Trashes Howard Brody
Friday, August 10, 2018
On the latest edition of “The Matt Riviera Show” podcast, hosted by 3x NWA World Tag Team Champion & Reality TV star, “The LVR Boy” Matt Riviera, Matt welcomes current Westwood One & Voice of America journalist & former WCW commentator, Chris Cruise.
In this clip, Chris Cruise discusses the history of wrestling promoter Howard Brody & explains why he believes the recent TV deal between Ring Warriors & WGN America is going to fail:
Chris Cruise on promoter Howard Brody & his history in pro wrestling: “He’s (Howard Brody) just kind of one of those loser, schlub, jock-sniffing wannabes who, you know, have invaded pro wrestling over the past 20 or 30 years, and use it to make themselves into somebody that they’re really not… typical perv, he started with ladies wrestling in the late 80s. And then somehow he became the president of the National Wrestling Alliance… He’s just one of these guys that, God love him, despite his losing track record of 20 or 30 years, he just never goes away… ”
Chris’s prediction for the Ring Warriors TV show on WGN America: “If you look at a 2013 or 2014 show from them, they had a taping, I think in Florida, and they had maybe the 1st or 2nd rows filled and then they had to darken the entire rest of the small arena. So, that’s probably what’s going to happen… My guess is they’re going to get on the air… But I think after that, WGN is going to say, “Look, this is not the promotion you promised.”… Unless they’ve got a millionaire who’s willing to burn money, I don’t see this thing lasting on WGN beyond September.”
’s apparent return to WWE: “Before he died, Bruno Sammartino and I talked a lot about this issue of why WWE would even want Hogan back in…. I don’t know if it’s nostalgia or a feeling that they owe him or something. But to forgive him for what he said. Apparently, he was in his early to mid-50s when he said this, he was a grown man. And his use of the N word, it wasn’t just once, it was a number of times in that conversation, and in such a disparaging, condescending, racist tone… And everyone always talks about forgiveness. Well he’s been forgiven many times, for lying about steroids, for lying about drug use, just for lying in general. How many times do you forgive the guy?”
Other topics include the recent World of Sport shows, Matt’s Raw Review of the 8/6/18 edition of Monday Night RAW, plus Matt’s stories about wrestling in Japan, traveling with “Nature Boy” Buddy Landel and more!!
