WrestleMania Moment Series on Wrestling Voice Radio
His favorite WrestleMania Moment:
"God that is so tough, I had so many of them, I had so much fun at them, WrestleMania 3 was out of this world, the amount of people that were there, Alex Cooper and Honky Tonk Man doing that stuff it was unbelievable and that is still the record and then Andre the Giant, how can I not put that in there, that was great. Then you think about DiBiase and being able to take his money and give it to Mary-Tyler Moore that was hilarious. Then there's being in there with the Undertaker. Different reasons for different ones."
Wrestling Undertaker at WrestleMania 8, 20 years ago, did he think he'd still be going:
"God no, who could have ever predicted that. It's just incredible, I could never have predicted I'd have wrestled Andre, I could never have predicted they'd still be doing WrestleManis. But the machine they've built, they're built to the wall and I look back and they are so special. Nobody in the world has an idea how much work goes into it. Everybody does everything. So much work, time, effort."
On wrestling Ted DiBiase at WrestleMania 6:
"It was always easy (working with Ted), he listened to me, let me guide the ship and I respect him for the fact that he did listen and he's a great mechanic in ring but I got the better deal as I had a snake and he had Virgil but what the hell."
On Ric Flair getting his second induction to the WWE Hall of Fame:
"Why does he have to be inducted twice? Is it because he didn't remember the first time? Or did he have his tits done or something? Did that I say that out loud?"
On writing a book:
"It's gonna be a thick book, I'd like to knock some of the guys that I hate like Ric Flair or Ultimate Warrior but I won't… did I say that out loud too? Oh shit!"
