Bryan Clark, who worked in WWE as Adam Bomb and in WCW as one-half of the team of Kronik, spoke on WGD Weekly with Steve and the Scum. Here are some highlights from the interview.

Waiting for a call for the 2014 Royal Rumble: There’s a lot of guys saying like, Jake Roberts and Scott Hall and these guys, I’ve never stopped training. Adam Bomb could definitely come back at the Royal Rumble in Pittsburgh in 2014 in January, these other guys are not ready, they are not physically ready, and I am, just throwing it out there and we’ll see. Have the ‘Creation of Devasation’ make an appearance, come in , a couple of ‘Meltdowns’ on some people, get it over. Just a proper send off, you know? I’m definitely capable of it.”

Being “lied to” by Pat Patterson and Gerry Brisco about Adam Bomb being in line for an Intercontinental title run: “The reason I left, it was one night in the locker room at the King of the Ring tournament. Pat Patterson and Gerry Brisco came in and said, ‘hey Mabel, we’re gonna have you work with Adam Bomb and you’re gonna go over, and Adam Bomb, we are gonna put the Intercontinental Title on you after King of the Ring.’ So, I was like, ‘that’s great’ Then they completely shift gears on me and it didn’t happen. They lied to me and that was the end of it. I’m not real big on being lied to, so I said, ‘you know what, Bischoff is in Atlanta, he has already showed interest in me, so I said, ‘I’ll see you when I see you.’”

Choosing Adam Bomb over “The Ringmaster”: “[Vince McMahon] had a couple of ideas, he had the ‘Ringmaster,’ which Steve Austin, that gimmick was later his. They offered me either the ‘Ringmaster’ or Adam Bomb, and I chose Adam Bomb.”

His big WCW singles push as Wrath and his disappointment over his feud with Bam Bam Bigelow: “[Working with Bam Bam] was very disappointing. You don’t really want to talk down or bad about people who are no longer here, but he was out of shape, he blew up really bad in the ring. I was really frustrated because I always take the business very seriously and he was not in shape and not prepared to go and I was ready to go. You put a hundred and ten percent into it and then the other guy shows up fat and out of shape. It takes two people to make it work.”

Kronik and the other incoming WCW talent being “set up for failure” upon entering WWE after the buyout: “After the company [WCW] folded, then we went to New York, I wanted to go to Japan. Brian [Adams] said, ‘let’s go to New York and give it a try.’ W had been out of the ring for over a year, you get the ring rust. I had an automobile accident and had a neck injury, Kane had a bad staff infection, ‘Taker had been out for a while, and Brian had been out of the ring. So, we had one house show and then we were on pay per view. I felt like we were set up for failure. A lot of guys that left WCW and went to New York, that’s what it was, because we kicked their ass for so many weeks in the ratings, I just think they had it in for us. We were set up for failure, and that’s what happened.”

Scott Hall “milking” an injury leading to Clark’s first pay per view with WCW at Starrcade ’91: “Scott Hall was sitting on the sidelines crying about a little knee injury like he always does and there was really nothing wrong with him, he just didn’t want to work. That’s when I was in the Power Plant, training, so they needed somebody to fill that spot. I wasn’t completely ready for it but because Scott wanted to sit and cry about his little knee injury. There was nothing to it, he just milked it, so I ended up getting put in that spot.”
