ECW legend Francine was a recent guest on the Shelley Live show on VOC Nation. Highlights from the interview can be found below.
Selling her podcast to Vince Russo:
Things have been taking off. Not for nothing, but I’m 48 years old. I never thought I’d be this involved with, not just wrestling, just with social media and all this crazy stuff. So I have the podcast, and it’s doing really well. Vince Russo bought it from me, so now I’m part of the Russo family, part of the (Russo) Brand. So we do the podcast for him, but I also have the Patreon; the Patreon is an extension of the podcast. For the Patreon, we do funny little things like we watched Porn Parish. We watched them and we gave our take and we gave them (star ratings), who we liked, who we disliked… I just (also) did a think where I read my DMs (on the air), and I didn’t know I even had DMs because I don’t know how to use Instagram…so I went and I read my DMs and boy were they dirty. It made good content and it was funny.
On her Cameo account:
A lot of men want me to cut promos on them and heel them. I never wanted to do Cameo…I’m thinking that people want me to say Happy Birthday and things like that, but no; they want me to call them filth and disgusting and heel them. It’s been so fun, I feel like I’m on television again.
On doing nostalgia shows with Shane Douglas:
I think last year was my first time being back at ringside. I kept telling Shane (Douglas) I don’t want to do it, I’m too old, this is ridiculous…I really can’t work… But people want to see nostalgia, and they just wanted to see us together again. And once I went through the curtain with him (for the first time in years), it was like 1996 all over again… He’s probably the only guy that I’ll go to the ring with, just because I trust him with everything. He knows about my health, he’s not going to put me in any compromising position.
