Former WWE and WCW star "The Patriot" Del Wilkes recently appeared on The Pancakes and Powerslams podcast to discuss overcoming drug addiction, his career and more. The Patriot, who teamed with Marcus Bagwell before he was "Buff" as WCW's "Stars and Stripes" tag team, commented on feeling left out during his WCW run:
"It was a lot of great tag teams in the company at the time, but it was a very cliquish company. It seemed like they started pushing the established [WWE] stars who have been working for Vince [McMahon] for a number of years. So they went and raided his talent and gave everyone guaranteed contracts, and it seemed like the rest of us become sort of an afterthought."
