I recently read an article where Tony Schiavone spoke about working in Starbucks for a while as he had time on his hands. He comes across pretty well, a down to earth guy.
I know he jumped ship a couple of times during the late 80’s and early 90’s, but what is his reputation within the industry? As far as I am aware he isn’t employed by WWE, would he add a lot of knowledge? Or is he not a ‘wrestling guy’ and it was just a job to him?
Is it underserved that arguably his most famous quote is the ‘well that’ll put butts in seats’ line during the Monday night era. Something which I am sure he was Produced to say.
