Working for WCW for four years but never being used on television: "Well naturally I'm the brother of the Macho Man Randy Savage and that was a tremendous advantage. Chris Jericho had written in one of his books, that he was working very hard and making less money than me, I did not know that but I'll tell you what if I was Chris Jericho I would be very upset about that and I do not blame him for being upset.
"Here is my side of the story, my brother had an idea that I was going to be Gorgeous George. I got a contract, and I was going to get started, I was practicing, watching Gorgeous George videos and I was really interested in doing this but the phone never rang. At WCW there were too many chiefs and not enough Indians, they had about 20 bookers, 20 people making decisions and everybody hating each other."
When Randy Savage will be inducted in the WWE Hall of Fame: "Well I would like to see that happen but do you know what I would really like, somebody from the WWE to extend me some condolences, nobody has done that yet except one guy, Howard Finkel.
"People from all over the world sent their condolences, wrestling fans, friends, I got phone calls from great people like Bret 'The Hitman' Hart and The Million Dollar Man Ted DiBiase. The first guy I called when I found out the news of Randy's death was The Mouth of the South Jimmy Hart.
"I know that there was some rivalry and heat, but since my daughter is 28-years-old and my mother is still alive at 85-years-old, I would like to have some condolences if not flowers how about a nice card. Here we are a year and a half since Randy died and we're talking about the Hall of Fame, I'm talking about how I would like some condolences from the WWE.
"My Brother didn't want to go into the Hall of Fame unless his little brother and his father also went in, that's what he wanted and that's what I'm sticking to."
