Ultimate Warrior Threatens To Kill, Harvey Wippleman Rips Apart Bertha Faye, More
— As reported earlier, there was a security threat made against Ultimate Warrior from an “Anti Warrior” group on MySpace planning to “jump the barricade” during his return match with Orlando Jordan yesterday in Barcelona, Spain. As expected, nothing of the sort happened, and the match went off without a hitch. Warrior’s agent, Bernie J. Gernay, shot down speculation on this matter possibly being a set-up or work. He wrote on UltimateWarriorTV.com: “Furthermore, we have received thousands of emails asking if this is some type of a work generated by Ultimate Warrior TV to create hype and continued subscriptions for the Pay-Per-View. This is unequivocally false. It would not only be childish but deceptive. A simple Google search of the individuals name (which he has offered numerous times) who is behind this effort will prove he is a real person that does indeed exist.” Gernay later asked Warrior for his take on the situation. As posted on his website, Warrior said, “Bring it on — with all of the frustration and mishaps that happened in Spain, that will give me an excuse to kill someone and get away with it.”
— The Online World of Wrestling website has an interview with Bruno Lauer, better known as former WWE manager Harvey Wippleman. Lauer talks about his current duties in WWE, his new book, his career, working with Scott Hall & Sid Vicious, how Giant Gonzalez is doing, Goldberg, Kurt Angle, why you never see him on TV anymore even though he’s still employed by WWE, and more. Lauer also rips apart the person portraying his former storyline love interest, the late Rhonda Singh, otherwise known as Bertha Faye. He doesn’t particularly care for her as a person, calling her “smelly,” an alcoholic, and that she had no appreciation for anything. Here is what he had to say about her.
BRAD: Please expand on the Bertha Faye love-interest storyline for our readers. Were you having fun?
BRUNO: The Bertha Faye deal was Vinny Roo’s (Vince russo) idea. No, I was not having fun; don’t get me wrong, I didn’t mind pretending to be in love with a hideous creature —- that’s business —- I minded babysitting a smelly, alcoholic, argumentative, know-it-all person with no appreciation from her for anything.
