Derek is joined by WWE Hall of Famer The Godfather (Charles Wright).

The Godfather discusses his life after wrestling, as "The Smoke Train Conductor" and a cannabis connoisseur. He shares how smoking marijuana daily has helped himself heal physically and mentally, and practically kept him ageless.

Of course, we couldn't have the WWE Pimp Daddy, also formerly known as Papa Shango, without discussing his time in the wrestling business. Charles talks about:

  • Getting the call from WWE to tell him about his Hall of Fame Induction
  • Partying during the infamous WWE Attitude Era
  • How he got his weed in every town while performing as The Godfather
  • Dealing with the Hoes
  • How Vince McMahon feels about marijuana and wrestlers who smoke weed
  • How the Papa Shango gimmick was presented to him
  • Hanging out with the real life gangsta Yokozuna and BSK
  • Drinking with Mr Perfect Curt Hennig
  • WCW offering him a spot in the nWo
  • Being an outlaw biker and managing strip clubs
  • and much more.
