My first Wrestlemania. So, a year earlier I was wrestling in Mid-South. I can remember picking up a newspaper and on the front page it said WWF sets indoor world attendance record. 93,000 people at the Pontiac Silverdome. And I remember reading that article and thinking to myself "You know what? This is where I need to be." I never dreamed, now think about that. I'm in a motel in Baton Rouge when I read that in 1987. I never dreamed that one year later I would be in the main event at Wrestlemania IV. That's how fast it happened. I had a meeting with Vince. I think in May or June is when I signed on and I started in the summer and then it just built. One of those mile mark events was the thing at Market Square Arena. The first time that wrestling was on national network television in the United States since the 50's and I was part of the feature. It was Andre and Hulk and I had hired Andre and Andre was going to be Hogan and sell me the belt. That was the lead in to Wrestlemania IV. I'm a guy who grew up in wrestling. I'm a guy who's dad was a wrestler. And the first time wrestling is back on national television, I'm part of the main event. That was pretty cool.
