The following is an excerpt from an interview with WWE legend Road Warrior Aniaml:
Road Warrior Animal on tag-team wrestling: “I think (WWE) would take (tag teams) more serious instead of just trying to throw two guys together and call them a ‘team.’ Our (The Road Warriors) thing was different – our history. We got to bounce for four or five years together before – we knew each other. We knew what each other was thinking. I knew when Hawk gave me a certain look… We just knew each other so well that we could take care of each other’s back. I don’t think you have that today. That natural instinct.”
Road Warrior Animal on his last partner Road Warrior Hawk: “(Hawk and I) faced each other one time and we never touch each other. I was over working for Giant Baba and I got Baba to bring my brothers (Mark and John) over. They wanted to do a brothers-tag-team match because the Japanese are very big on the family. I said ‘yeah sure’ and I asked Hawk and he said ‘yeah sure.’ Then they said we need opponents who can match Animal and his brothers. (Great) Kabuki was one of the guys. Then it was Hawk and (I think) Muta were the other two guys. Hawk and I never touched each other (in he match)!”
