In the interview McCord says:

"Being a politician would be a huge disadvantage. People are fed up with lies and deception and it’s time someone stood up and told the truth," McCord told SLAM! Wrestling

"Every where you turn the spin doctors are at work for their own agenda… I will take a stand to get Tampa back on top where it belongs and hopefully other cities will stand up and take notice."

He adds:

"My promise is to take the average person with me if elected to the Mayor’s office and to make decisions that effect them and not any special interest groups. Can I walk on water? No of course not. Can I be fair and honest? Absolutely."

 "There is one thing for sure and that is I can’t be intimidated and no one is going to play me. My new slogan is ‘Tampa’s Pet, Politician’s Regret’ … They better bring their A game when debate time rolls around. "

"Just call me Mr. Mayor!"

Austin Idol feuded famously with Jerry "The King" Lawler in Memphis, TN where Lawler is running for the second time for mayor.
