Tom Lawlor Comments On Wrestling R-Truth & Billy Gunn, & More


“Filthy” Tom Lawlor was recently interviewed by Fightful as he spoke about the times he wrestled Billy Gunn and R-Truth, among other topics. You can check out some highlights from the interview below:

On facing the Billy Gunn & R-Truth: “I think by that time I’d already had a WWE tryout, as well, by the time I had that tag match. I think that was one of my last matches before I was fighting full-time. I believe they were the James Gang or something at that time, at the Cocoa Beach Pavilion and I remember this succinctly because, not only did we essentially got squashed in the match and they wanted nothing to do with wrestling us, but some asshole in the crowd threw a D cell battery at us. Like, those things are heavy. Dude, we’re a jobber tag team. It’s not like we’re in some blood feud with these guys or we did anything to the crowd. You huck a fucking D cell battery at poor kids? Fuck. I never had that happen with UFC or Bloodsport.”

On being proud of the match later: “There were a period of years where I didn’t watch wrestling at all and I started watching it again and R-Truth was in the main event scene—him and The Miz as a tag team. I would tell my ex-girlfriend at the time, ‘I wrestled that guy. I lost to that guy.’ I was so proud of it.”
