In the end, White seems ready to let the incident fade away and seems more regretful about the whole situation than anything else.
"That whole story gets blown up every time I hear it. 'Well, he did this to you and he did this to you.' You know, I was 400 pounds and I could bench 600 and Paul had one arm. Again, Paul's a tough guy but certainly at that point -- at 225 or 230 pounds at that point. Really, one of his arms had nerve damage that really crippled him," White said. "You know what? Paul Orndorff's a big, big, tough man. I'm sure he would agree to fight me ten out of ten times. At that given moment, after I had slapped him, I'm backed against the wall. I'm not going to lose my job, I'm not going to jail. Then, when I was ready to fight, he was [the one trying to save his job]. I don't know what was said to him when he got in that agent's room.
"You know, it's just unfortunate. He was a football player, I was a football player before. We had a lot of things in common. Heck, I had given him a red labrador. I had actually shipped it from Denver when my male and female labrador had puppies. He wanted to train it and teach it to be a hunting dog. So, it was just unfortunate as he was a friend of mine before. I have no hard feelings. Quite frankly, you get tired of telling the story and rehashing it. ... Yeah. That's exactly what happened. Period."
