-- Tully Blanchard joined Konnan and Mister Saint Laurent this week on MLW Radio. During the interview, Tully discussed how much the industry has changed and working as a WWE producer for a brief trial period of time in 2006. Here is what he had to say… "People that don't know what it used to be, the younger generation, they've got nothing to judge it against, so they don't know. They don't know what 'old school' is. They don't know what WCW used to be. But I can't just bad mouth [WWE]. The wrestling business is all about selling tickets and back in our day, it took performance to sell tickets because you were in [the same] places every week, every month. You were on television every week and it wasn't about doing a pay-per-view every month. It wasn't about TV shows the way they do them now. The formula and the mindset behind everything is so much different. The 'wrestling show' is the product now whereas the TV show used to just be an infomercial to get people to come to the arenas."
