Two Man Power trip Of Wrestling Published Oct 12 2018:
Recently the Two Man Power Trip of Wrestling welcomed former WWF personality and nemesis of Bobby "the Brain" Heenan, John DiGiacamo FKA Jamison Winger. From his days as a feature act on Primetime Wrestling, through the short lived Bobby Heenan Show and managing the Bushwackers, Jamison's story of how he landed in the WWF and his tenure is a great look inside one of the most successful eras in the history of the wrestling business. In this excerpt from the interview, DiGiacamo comments on how Vince McMahon discovered him while working as an actor and his chemistry with the late-great Bobby Heenan.
Chemistry with Bobby Heenan:
"I recognized early on that Bobby was kind of the star of just about every program. Whether it was the saturday show, he was the guy and the best you are going to do with Bobby was make Bobby look good. He didn't need a lot of help because he was a funny guy and I just played to that and I played the nerd and the loser and to be a loser. Every once in a while I got him to break and gave him a good zinger and there were so many times that they'd have to cut because I cracked him up and there were plenty of times that I broke him up and we'd have to start over for the tapings."
"There were so many times that Bobby and I nailed something on the first take and we would always shoot those shows in less time than they expected because generally the first take they'd say we got it and we got what we need and we are ready to go. I'm sounding a little egotistical but you think about the character and how he is so not a physical kind of wrestling guy but he had success because Bobby liked working with me and I thought I brought out the best in Bobby a lot like Gorilla did but in a different way."
