I'm going to do what I wanna do and it's on DVD. Sue me.
WrestlingINC: You talked about mentoring younger wrestlers. What advice do you give them about the hardcore style? You've suffered a lot of injuries from hardcore wrestling back in the day and a lot of the guys are hurting now. Do you feel like your thoughts on wrestling have changed at all or is it still pretty much the same? And what advice do you give?
New Jack: You know what, a lot of guys would say, 'All I do is OK.' I'd say, 'OK, is that your way of telling me you don't know how to work?' You see, I wrestled years before I swung barbed wire or a bat or crutch or a chair. I mean, I was wrestling for Ricky and Robert and Tracy Smothers, the dirty White Boys. We got in the ring and we wrestled.
A lot of people don't remember that. What I tell them is to learn how to wrestle first. If you're going to say, 'All I do is hardcore.' That means your ass don't know how to work. That's all that it is. I mean, I don't have any advice for what people are trying to do. I'm not going to give anybody advice for nothing as far as this business because you can't. Everybody is going to go the way they want to go. Everybody is going to follow what they want to follow. They're going to kiss the ass that they want to kiss or need to kiss to get to the next level. I never did it.
So, my advice to them -- and I always tell them -- if you get in the ring with me, bring your ears and your ass. I don't want your opinion. If I do want it, I'd give it to you. If you get in the ring with me, you shut up and you listen. Basically, I'm like, 'You follow me and if I call a bad match, blame it on me.'
Here's some advice: don't give me your opinions, your thoughts, your ifs, your maybes on what you think a match should be. Don't do that. Just get in there and listen. I got in the ring with Ricky and Robert almost a year before I called my first spot. I'll never forget the day. It was a clothesline off the ring apron. And that was it. Ricky was like, 'I was wondering when you were going to call a spot.
I'm just like, 'I'm doing my thing. I'm here for these guys to learn. But, I'm not going to get into the ring with someone and have razorblades taped to my arms and say, 'Hey, this is how you get it,' or, 'this is is how you swing a chair.' I'm not doing that. I'll teach them how to work, I'll teach them how to lock up. But, I ain't going to get in there and say, 'This is how you swing a crutch.' That's retarded.
WrestlingINC: You had mentioned Balls Mahoney and you guys had the backstage altercation in June. You both are going to be on the show on Saturday. Is everything worked out with Balls?
New Jack: Ain't nothing to work out. I whooped his ass and I left him alone. I didn't go up to him, shake his hand and apologize. He threatened me and I beat the sh-t out of him. And I left it alone. I could be in the same locker room with him and I will never do anything to hurt him again. This is business, you know?
WrestlingINC: Have you spoken to him since?
New Jack: I saw him at a signing a few weeks ago. You could tell he was a little nervous. I walked in there and I saw him but I didn't f-ck with him, you know what I mean? It's water under the bridge, it's gone. I'm not going to bother Balls anymore.
WrestlingINC: You haven't been announced for a match yet this Saturday. What can you tell us about how you'll be involved this Saturday?
