Fantastic interview with Guy. Been hearing a lot about the book on 83 Weeks with Eric Bischoff to hear first hand from Guy on what it took to get the project completed was fascinating. Good job John

Finally got around to listening and fascinating to hear how Turner execs wanted nothing to do with wrestling and 20 years later WWE starts multiple billion dollar TV deals. Obviously things had to happen like DVR ruining traditional watching so WWE could become a valuable asset
