It’s an interview everybody on the BoredWrestlingFan staff wanted to participate in, but one man actually got to do it. This past Thursday, the great Jerry Lynn took time out of his day to speak with our own Justin Ruff about a number of topics. He talks about getting his start in the business, working the indies with a young Sean Waltman, and reveals who came up with his WCW name, Mr. JL. He mentions that the late Brad Armstrong was one of his favorite opponents. He talks about ECW memories, including the fans giving him the nickname, “The New F’N Show.” Jerry discusses his disappointing time in WWE and his knee injury, comparing it to being a human toy. The early days of TNA are discussed, including Jerry winning the X-Division Championship early on. Justin and Jerry get into Jerry’s recent indie career, and Jerry puts over wrestling in the state of Texas. Plus, Jerry announces the date of his final career match! All this, and much, much more.

Jan26Pete Viggiano I stopped winthacg wrestling for a while because I was overseas, but in 2012 I was back better then ever. I can’t get enough of it. I have to thank you and your website, Rich! Without all the info here, I probably would have had a lot of trouble getting back into it.
