"The Greatest Intercontinental Champion Of All-Time," The Honky Tonk Man joined The Monday Night Mayhem Radio Network for his highly-anticipated return to the program for the first time in four years. Indeed, a lot has happened since HTM stepped into The Mayhem’s squared circle, Big Mosh, Blade and "The Chairman of the Board" Todd Vincent for his return to The Mayhem after last being on the show four years ago, even seeing a change from his previous edgier personality to more of a PG persona. The Honky Tonk Man thanked The Big Mosh, Blade, & "The Chairman Of The Board" for the opportunity to return back to The Mayhem airwaves. "I’m the only white man that doesn’t get mad about that (being referred to by his first name of Honky), so I don’t care. Call me anything you want, as long as you call me."

The Honky Tonk Man is one of the few wrestlers from his era to truly evolve with the times & transition to using the world wide web as a way to interact with his fans across the globe. To a large extent, others superstars he has grappled with over the years are stuck in a "time warp" of sorts, and have not embraced the Internet fully. How does Honky feel about talking to fans, as well as getting involved on the ‘net? "Other than the ones that are dead, the fans that are still around aren’t up-to-date on stuff. This is my business, this is my life, and I love to do it. And if it’s your job & your business, you have to stay on top of the game, and the only way to do it now is with the Internet."
