Who would have been a good manager for Adam Bomb: "Oh boy, that's tough. I would sort of say Fuji, but you know nuclear attack, Fuji; maybe not so much. It's tough, it's hard to say. Honestly, I don't know, maybe (Ted) DiBiase, he might have been a good one. Even Paul Orndorff, he might have been good because he was so intense and I learned a lot of my intensity from Paul. He instilled that in me and I already had it anyway but he just turned it up a notch. So I think Paul would have been a really good manager for me."
Was the WWF backstage management approachable and what caused him to leave WWF for WCW: "You know what, at that time, to me it didn't seem like Vince… it was sort of like sitting outside of the principle's door waiting to go in and see him for a couple of minutes; so I didn't like it at all. That's why, and people say what are you talking about, but working with Bischoff, I could talk to Bischoff anytime I wanted to. With Vince, It's like you had to bow down and whatever, whatever and that's why I liked WCW so much more. People may not really understand that, but I was there and I know; I was in both places and that's why I left New York because of him lying to me and all the bulls--t. I just said I've had enough of this.
"There were a few rumors about it, but matter of fact Mabel was sitting right next to me when they told me what they were going to do; they were going to put the Intercontinental Title on me. Mabel is sitting right next to me in the locker room and Brisco and Patterson said 'We're going to put Mabel over at King of the Ring, after that we're going to put the Intercontinental Title on you. And I'm like 'Great, that's awesome', you know? So, then he basically lied about it and back out on it and I said you know what, and I'm not big on people lying to me, so I just said 'I've had enough of this' and he was going through his whole steroid trial and we stood by him and were working 280-290 days out of the year; our money was going down. I just said 'You know what, I've had enough of this; I've got a family'. So, I had a job waiting for me with Bischoff in Atlanta, and I lived in Atlanta and that's where I wanted to be anyways, so that's what happened."
How did he get into WCW: "He (Eric Bischoff) was in AWA; he was an announcer actually, and then he was living in Atlanta and I had heard he had had an interest in me and so, basically I was told that as soon as I was free from WWF, he would want to sign me."
