WCW Producer Talks Sale Of WCW To WWF, Luke Gallows Working With Him

Neal Pruitt, former WCW Producer and host of Secrets Of WCW Nitro, participated in a Reddit AMA recently. You can check out a few submitted highlights below:

Working with the WWF after the WCW sale:

Kenny Omega Retains IMPACT World Title; Don Callis 'Fires' Sami Callihan At IMPACT Against All Odds

I actually did not have a desire to go to WWF at the time. I was kinda burned out, and I was tired of getting a cattle prod to get wrestlers to do simple interviews. However, about three months later, Ric Flair asked me why I wasn't at WWF. I told him my reasoning, and he said 'it's not like that up here. the wrestlers are waiting and ready for you to work'.

His influence on Luke Gallows:

Hopefully I had some influence on the Bullet Club. At Deep South, I got to work quite a bit with Luke Gallows who is a friend of mine to this day. He always enjoyed the nWo, so I'm glad they passed the torch to him. AJ Styles is one of my favorite wrestlers, for sure. He's a great guy and was very kind to my son Alec. AJ sat in the first row next to him at a Monster truck event. My son still talks about it!
