2:45:55 - Polish Joe Ciupik (Part 3)

Polish Joe: Yeah. First of all, that Jesse Ventura did, indeed, happen. I was editing a show and Verne and Greg walked into the control room with Jesse and it was the one and only time that I ever shook “The Body’s” hand – didn’t have a conversation with him because they were busy talking and I just respected the business part of it and didn’t want to say to him that I grew up hating him as much as I hated Nick Bockwinkel, so I never had THAT pleasure. But, yup – that did indeed happen and I do not blame him. The other person that did it but it was sort of in a reverse mode was Curt Hennig. So – before Curt went to the WWF and became Mr. Perfect, for a year – and this would have started, would have been May of ’87 – he defeated Nick Bockwinkel at the Cow Palace in San Francisco as a part of SuperClash II with the help of a roll of Dimes from Larry Zbyzsko. So – Curt signed a contract with the Gagne’s, and as Curt told me at the time, It was for $120,000 a year - $10,000 a month. Curt and I were out one night having a little fun, and so I asked him: I go “So has Vince contacted you yet?” and he goes “Yeah – they contacted me a few months ago,” and I go “So what the hell are you still doing here?” He goes “Well, I thought about it and I’m still young – I’m gonna have another shot at the WWF. But, Verne’s paying me $10,000 a month to be able to stay at home, to see my wife and kids, and travel-“ I wanna say at the time “working 7 or 8 times a month.” He goes “Signed a one year deal, it’s a guarantee – if he doesn’t pay me, then I can call Vince back up.” Well, the year goes by and Verne didn’t have the money or – in actuality, a very smart business move at the time – to re-sign Curt; he couldn’t afford it. Again, with the personal lawsuit, the money he had already put back into the AWA: he just couldn’t commit to continuing to do that. So – Curt ended up becoming Mr. Perfect. Did Curt get more money at that time? That I don’t know, but, Curt used the WWF as leverage against the AWA to get HIS deal in 1987.
