Kip James Recap
Kip James is introduced as the man with more names then God himself, but how does Kip like to be called as Keith doesn't want to trigger a lawsuit? After referring to his former employers as 'Pieces of shit,' Kip settles with, er, Kip.
The two talk about Bullet Bob with Keith asking about Bullet Bob's thumb, or lack of. Kip never noticed until Bob gave him a (half) thumbs up. After discussing whether the James gang are in actual fact a street gang, Keith asks if Kip considered calling himself Bill E. Gunn in TNA? Kip cuts a promo; 'A name is just a name, the person is still the same,' although one would doubt it'll be up there with Mark Coleman
Kip talks about his release after 13 years with the WWE, and 'the phone call,' consisting of John Laurinaitis saying that cretive have nothing for him, and then hanging the phone up. Keith asks for the guy behind the release? 'Johnny Ace.' Upon being released Kip shit his pants, no really.
Kip puts over TNA, then himself. He says he can have a good match with anyone, even a broomstick. Kip then shoots on Honky Tonk Man; 'Honky didn't sit down and do nothing for nobody.' Which grammatically means he did.
The gimmicks of Kip James are then discussed, but what Dr. Keith (known for his hard questions) really wants to know is what happened to the gravy bowl as presented by the gay and lesbian alliance (Chuck has it). Kip then talks about how the gay gimmick was the most entertaining gimmick he'd even been a part of, not sparing a thought for the millions of WWE fans who actually endured it.
Tag team wrestling is preferred to Kip James then singles. 'New York don't give a crap about tag teams,' it seems. Kip also says that Team 3D vs. the James Gang is gonna be the big TNA money draw, so Dixie should cast any thoughts of signing Goldberg aside.
Dr. Keith asks about the new WWE drug Talent Wellness policy which Kip describes as a 'crock of shit.' Kip then talks about the pros of steroids over painkillers.
We find out if Kip is indeed an 'Ass man' and his thoughts on the 'Ass Man Song.' 'It's a good tune' replies Kip. Keith then proceeds to read a few lyrics from the Ass Man Song. I really can't add to this any.
Keith then asks if Kip is a fan of the internet and if he ever reads any message boards talking about his hair? Kip shoots on the average message board poster, and presumably radio show downloader. Kip confirms he hasn't got his hair in pig-tails whilst conducting the interview, and the real reason behind the pig tails!
Talking about working with Torrie Wilson, Kip confirms the rumour that 'Personality-wise, she is zero.' Kip and Keith then talk about the 'MTV thing.'
Asked if he ever thinks he'll be back in the WWE? 'No, that's just a plain no... fuck them.' Keith then looks for dirt on WWE guys, he finds it with Triple H. 'He'll just fucking stab you in the back. He's just a giant piece of shit.' I guess that also confirms the question about him working in the WWE again. Working in Japan isn't 'his bag.' He also plus his official website as Dr. Keith dramatically reads the lyrics of the "I got it all" theme and does his best Road Dog impression. "Oh you didn't know?"

After discussing Shamrock shakes 'those things are very great' and ordering vanilla shakes; Tornado tells Keith how he got his wrestling name as Keith asks for some two for one apple pies.

Acting wise, Tornado was an extra in a Black Eyed Peas "Lets Get It Started" music video. Look for him in a white baby blue shirt. He puts over the 'hot (word for the ladies that sounds like riches) were around all day' and wonders why there wasn't any on the set of Nacho Libre set. Don't worry, Tornado fans, he's maskless in Nacho Libre, without a sweater vest.

More importantly, we find out who Tornado thinks is a better dancer then him in wrestling, and who has got more soul; El Generico or Jack Evans? 'That's a tough question.' Indeed. Ernest Miller, the ruby red slippers, and his MAMA are also mentioned by Tornado. Tornado talks about going East working of JAPW and IWA-MS. Torando's time wrestling under the name "El Negro" ('fun times, he'll kidnap your kids and watch them eat breakfast') is also discussed.

Keith asks if Gary ever regrets not taking Paul Heyman's job offer of replacing Joey Styles in ECW, he could be the one getting yelled by Vince today? 'That would never happen...
