9. Gangrel's Magazine Photo Shoot Hijacking Heat

Gangrel raw 15th anniversary 2007

Gangrel is one of the latest wrestling stars of yesteryear to start a podcast, and Fangin' N' Bangin' with Gangrel is a good watch (it's on YouTube). 

The veteran journeyman is seemingly happy to answer any and all questions from fans and has plenty of stories and anecdotes from his long career. 

On a recent edition, he relayed a story about how he accidentally hijacked a magazine photo shoot for Entertainment Weekly, featuring top stars The Rock, Steve Austin and Vince McMahon himself. 

"Entertainment Weekly, they came in to shoot The Rock, Vince McMahon and Stone Cold for some reason. And she [the photography] ran across me in the hallway. 

I was in a long trench coat, I had my sunglasses on and my hair done and I had been out all night. She goes, 'Oh my!' and pulls out her camera [and takes pictures]. 

And I remember, I got so much heat from like the office and stuff, because they were there for that shoot, and she spent like, four hours, just shooting me moving and just talking to me. I didn't think nothing of it, and they did the article, and it was a nice thing in Entertainment Weekly or whatever, a nice spread of him and The Rock, he was looking dapper. 

And I didn't think nothing and those pictures showed up, and it was the end-of-the-year Entertainment Weekly, and there was a thing, a column and it said 'stud muffin Gangrel changes the face of pro wrestling to entertainment'". 

I like Gangrel and I've heard him described in many ways, but 'stud muffin' is certainly a first.
