Which top young WWE Stars he thinks have the "it factor": "I think everybody likes Dolph Ziggler, you know I seen him back in the Spirit Squad days. You see that kid, he's got the blonde hair and a lot of white teeth, good body, good-looking young guy. He's the kind of guy, a marquee player that WWE looks for, like John Cena, Hulk Hogan, somebody of that nature. I think Ziggler fits that bill. Kind of an unknown hero is McGillicutty (Curtis Axel). I think Curt's boy, third generation wrestler, he's got a lot to show.
"I think guys that grow up in the business are just a little more polished than guys like myself who came into wrestling blind. I had no idea what to expect. I think, like Jake the Snake Roberts, Ted Dibiase, your second generation wrestlers, we see even more in Cody Rhodes and Ted Jr., that they grew up in the business and have a better understanding of the show."
The upcoming Mid-South DVD & Territory days: "Mid-South was a great wrestling territory, as you know many of the WWF stars came out of Mid-South. It was a great training area, not only did you learn how to do your work in the ring, but you learned how to do your interviews. A lot more guys were making a living wrestling and it was a great time in the business. Of course, the WWE, WWF days was better for a few unique guys but for overall wrestlers, it was good in the territory days."
