- Arda Ocal of The Score Television Network recently spoke with Joe "Road Warrior Animal" Laurinaitis. During the interview, Animal spoke about the Road Warriors gaining a reputation as a tag team that "refused" to do jobs in the '80s.
"I think the whole thing [not jobbing] is kinda blown out of proportion," Animal explained. "If you look back on our career, we lost to Ronny Garvin - the belts to them in Georgia, that was in year one. In the AWA, we lost against Greg and Jim Brunzel. Doing the job wasn't the problem, it's when the job got ridiculous and they wanted us to look foolish.
"I think we were one of the guys that stood up for ourselves and said, 'listen man, we want this business to grow as a whole'- the business was on a growing trend. Don't make us look foolish when we're helping you grow... Hawk and I never refused to do jobs, we did jobs for a whole year straight for WWF... this is a business and we all give and take."
