WrestlingINC: What about Dynamite Kid?
Honky Tonk Man: Tommy and I got along great in Calgary. Towards the end in WWF, things went different with him in different situations. I regret everything that's happened to him but he's made some statements. Even Davey Boy Smith -- God bless him, a great kid -- his ex-wife, Diana Hart, wrote in her book that if Dynamite Kid was saying something, he was probably telling a lie.
Other than that, I wish him well. I'm sorry about all his health issues.
WrestlingINC: What about Kevin Nash?
Honky Tonk Man: I finally got to sit down with Kevin Nash last year at a thing we were doing at in San Jose, California. Kevin's a really great guy. He's really smart about the way he does business and I wish I had been business as smart as him.
You know, he's a big guy. He's 7' tall. He's a good talker. He's a good businessman. If they needed someone behind the scenes in WWE, he would probably be a great guy to be there. I mean, he's had a bad rep because of a lot of things. It's been physical issues that have held him back from being one of these high-flying guys. Doing all these things. But, he knew that he was 7' tall, 300 pounds and he doesn't have to go out there and do all that nonsense. He understood that. To me, that's very important when a person understood what you can do and what you can't do. Then, being able to make it work for yourself.
But, he's a great guy. As far as Scott Hall, I've met Scott several years ago when he was trying to get in WWE and doing tryout matches. It's too bad. I hope he gets his life together and everything because he's a good guy.
WrestlingINC: Randy Savage?
Honky Tonk Man: Oh, gosh. What can you say about Randy. [impersonating Savage] 'Ooooh, yeah! Ooooh, Honky Tonk Man. You're in the danger zone. Yeah!" [Laughs.] We had some of the best times. We were never close, personal friends at all. Randy never let you be a close, personal friend. I don't know that Randy ever had a close, personal friend other than his family. Which is fine with me. But we did very well and we had a good chemistry in the ring together. He was a great performer.
WrestlingINC: Hulk Hogan?
Honky Tonk Man: Oh, gosh. 'Oh, yeah, brother! You know, brother. You know, brother, brother, brother. I got a sex tape out, brother. Brother, brother, brother.' [Laughs.] I don't know. The old Hulkster, he's like the wind; whatever direction's blowing, that's where he's going. [Laughs.]
What can you say? I know people want to hear me say bad things about people, but Hulk Hogan was the Muhammad Ali, the Tiger Woods of our era. Tiger Woods changed the way people looked at golf. Muhammad Ali changed the way people looked at boxing. Hulk Hogan changed the way people looked at wrestling. For that reason, he has had an impact on my life, my families life. Anyone in the wrestling business should bow down and say, 'Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.'
Of course, Vince McMahon, too. It took both of them and it took the vision of Vince McMahon. Even though -- people ask me everyday, 'How is Vince McMahon in real life?' I say, 'Just like he is on television.' [Laughs.] He is that character. Say what you want, but he has changed the business and made it [into] a real, legitimate, multi-billion dollar, world-wide company. As opposed to country fairs, rodeo arenas and things of that nature.
