The Rock called him “Hermie,” and that’s just one of the stories that New Japan Pro Wrestling announcer Kevin Kelly shares! He’s talking about his first-ever gig at WCW, his first meeting with Vince McMahon, and his first audition with Jim Ross. Kevin worked with Billy Gunn, Mr. Perfect, and was there the night that Stone Cold Steve Austin showed up at Brian Pillman’s house and gunshots rang out! Kevin also has stories about the Monday Night Wars, what finally turned the tides in WWE’s favor, and his own departure from WWE. And of course he’s talking New Japan Pro Wrestling – the culture, the style, Kenny Omega, and Don Callis.
