Vampiro Says WCW Locker Room Was Full of Desperate Men
"It was bad because that's when I was starting with my situation.
My main injury came during WCW, but I was already injured before that," Vamprio revealed. "I'm educated different. I grew up in wrestling different, but I'm also very religious. I'm very sensitive. I have nothing to do with my image, the way I look physically.
I'm easily affected by people who are bullies and people who suffer. So WCW was a locker room of desperate men on the verge of suicide. There was like, I don't know, 50 or 60 of them that did commit suicide or drug overdoses.
"The political situation behind the scenes, the manipulation the lying [and] the cheating and you have a group of guys who are overly insecure, full of prescription drugs. I don't mean one or two pain pills. I mean 70-80 pain pills an hour every hour every day, major, major, major major doses of anabolic steroids plus all the injuries and the mental health stuff.
Then, 'Who's doing this? Who's getting paid that? This guy said this?' It was almost as if somebody did it on purpose so that we would all kill ourselves, you know as an experiment. It was horrid. I wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy."
He stated that he doesn’t need to apologize for talking about the WCW locker room like this. He stated that he nearly lost his life due to the WCW locker room. "You're a product of your environment," Vampiro noted.
"So you have to live with these guys and some guys have different versions of it. And yeah, I made good friends, and I loved my experience with the fans. But hey, I don't give a s--t what those guys say, I was there and after 39 years in the business, I have every right to tell you because I started before wrestling had television.
Now, I'm producing TV shows. So I know what I'm talking about. So a lot of the a-- kissers. 'Oh, no, it was great,' and they're still trying to hang on and get that one last indie booking. I can say a bunch of names, but f--k those guys.
The reality of the situation is, they were as much a part of the problem as the guilty ones work because they didn't speak up. They didn't have the f--king balls to stand up. They just want that paycheck. It's like prostitution is what it's like a man. I didn't spend my life being an athlete at a high level: hockey, football, basketball [and] pro wrestling."
