Nick Patrick Compares WWE & WCW, Mike Bailey Recalls His Iron Man Match


During a recent edition of the Monday Mailbag for AdFreeShows podcast, former referee Nick Patrick drew comparisons between the atmosphere in WWE and WCW.

You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:


On working in WWE compared to WCW: “More like a team in WWE than WCW. WCW, some of the big stars had their own private locker rooms, private catering, and private time. You could or couldn’t go in and out of there.”

On being able to get straight answers from Vince McMahon: “WCW had a lot of monsters, but they made real monsters. It was hard to get a direct answer a lot of times. If you want to get a damn answer in WWE, you go up to Vince … You’ll get a straight answer from him.”

During a recent appearance on the Battleground Podcast, Impact Wrestling star Mike Bailey spoke about his current stint with Impact Wrestling and reflected on his Iron Man match with Josh Alexander.

You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On his time in Impact Wrestling: “You say it’s been just over a year since I made my debut with Impact, and that sounds absolutely crazy to me. I feel like I was able to cram in an entire career’s worth of wrestling in Impact since 2022.”

On his one-hour match with Josh Alexander: “It’s very close to number one, given how recently it’s happened. If you ask me for my favorite match, it’s typically something very recent because, again, continual progress. … The 60 minutes that we had in Impact definitely feels like part of the story to me, and it feels like there is much, much more to come between Josh Alexander and myself.”
