Episode Summary

Show 33
This week on Confidential the WWE Superstars comment on the life and times of Curt Hennig. Cover Story Shawn Micheals- He first asked how and why this could happen to Curt at such a young age. Eric Bischoff- He felt numb when he heard because of how young and healthy Curt was. Ric Flair- Was surprised because Curt was not depressed, he had it all. Fit Finlay- Talked about how Curt came from a wrestling family. Gerald Brisco- Adds to what Finlay said. He also said that Curt possessed that natural instinct that all great wrestlers have. Edge- He had the whole package; the Perfect look. Ric Flair- He was one of the few guys that had both the talent and the charisma. Bruce Prichard- He will always remember the great Shawn Michaels-Curt Hennig matches for the Intercontinental Title. Including the one from SummerSlam 1993. Shawn Michaels- Curt is actually the guy that came up with the "Heartbreak Kid" moniker. He gave Shawn an identity as a singles wrestler. Steve Lombardi- Calls Curt the greatest Intercontinental Champion ever. Billy Kidman- Hennig never had a bad day. A few of the guys discuss some of his ribs and his relationship with other wrestlers from Minnesota. Brock Lesnar- Saw sides of Curt that many other people didn't. They became very close friends, both coming from Minnesota and all. He was always talking about his family. Everyone agrees that Curt was a great family man. All of the footage shown here was from his initial WWF run. There was also some home video of his family included. Very emotional piece right here. Segment 1: 1/1 Since injuring her neck, Lita has been volunteering at a local animal shelter. She was completely miserable until she started volunteering. She cleans cages, helps with shots, sings to the animals, and makes people laugh. She's never standing around doing nothing. Her hair is interesting, red with blond streaks. At first the workers thought she would just be a ditzy celebrity, but she has inspired everyone. Her favorite part is the poop and scoop. She also enjoys cleaning the floors with a squeegee. Well someone has to do those jobs right? She may as well like them. There is a quarantine room for the biting dogs. The worst facet of volunteering is putting the dogs to sleep. This is the only positive part of her injury. Shockingly OK segment. Well, I like dogs so that shouldn't be all that shocking, although usually I can't stand Lita, but she was alright here. Segment 2: 1.5/2 Bradshaw and Ron Simmons shot a pilot for their own fishing show. No good can come out of this. The idea here is "Bikinis, Beer, and Bass". Bradshaw believes fishing shows are boring because most fishermen freeze up on camera, so this is a fishing show with an edge. They will have guests on each week. Some professional fisherman is hosting with them for the first show. They also have a "town/fishing drunk" on the show. On top of that they have a "lure babe" that walks around in a bikini. Simmons' family used to fish for food in order to save money. Bradshaw had fishing in his family. His older relatives used to make lures. Bradshaw catches a fish, but snaps his pole. Bradshaw feels that a network will pick up the pilot. TNN probably will. I mean just take a look at their current lineup. Segment 3: 1.5/3 Ric Flair and Arn Anderson talk about how great Tully Blanchard was in the ring, they didn't get along as well outside the ring though. Tully never retired. You see he failed a drug test for the WWF. Due to this test, WCW refused to rehire him. This pissed Tully off BIG TIME. That night he said, "Jesus take over my life." Immediately he felt calmness and peace. He used to drink and smoke cocaine, but that all stopped. None of the people he knew in wrestling ever checked up on him during his 14 months of unemployment. He had to sell most of the expensive stuff he bought in the 80's. He went to work for Champions of Life, which is a recovery center for drug users and people who were just out of jail. This whole group of athletes and celebrities would visit jails and preach to the inmates. No one could believe the kind of person he turned into. He's no longer involved with wrestling because the lord has a different plan for him. Why didn't he go into his return to wrestling in both 1993 and 1996? Maybe his communication lines with Jesus became disrupted or something. Segment 4: 2/3 YAY!! Another segment devoted to a commercial. This is the one with Stephanie McMahon and Carrot Top promoting a WWE/AT&T sweepstakes. What is the point of showing us this shit? Is it supposed to be interesting. Well I'm sure you all have seen the commercial, so there is really nothing for me to add. I do need to note though that Carrot Top seems to have been pumping iron, which sort of takes away from his dorky persona. Segment 5: 2/5 Gene relates a Hennig story about an announcement he heard at a casino, "You just missed Mr. Perfect, and he didn't leave you with much". One last tribute video dedicated to Curt is shown, with more comments from the wrestlers. Shawn Michaels states that Curt would actually do all the things we saw him do on the videos. He adds that Curt could do them all in one shot. That's not the story I heard. From what I know, the segments were a running joke in the back because Curt would be playing basketball or golf ALL DAY before he FINALLY hit that one shot that they needed. Either way, Curt was a great guy and will never be forgotten. Segment 6: 3/6moreless
