I've mellowed over the last year that I've been out of wrestling because once again, Jerry Jarrett said once he quit the wrestling business a few years later: "I discovered I didn't hate the wrestling business, I just hated the people that were involved in the wrestling business." But I've mellowed a little bit, I lost weight, I've got in better shape and got in better mental health just from being away from all the stress and aggravation. I would never go back on the road full time and I really do not want to subject myself to that again but at the same time especially since none of us are getting younger and one of the reasons why I got into this health kick over the last year and got off the road because no one of us were getting younger and people were getting heart attacks. If the Midnight Express were getting honored, I would be right there with it. I don't care if Satan or Saddaam Hussein is going to honor the Midnight Express they deserve it and I'll be up there with them.
If he would go back to ROH or TNA: "Oh my God! If she [Dixie Carter] called and asked me to take this place over, I would hang up quickly and take three Xanax. As one top star that shall remain nameless who worked for the WWE for many years and is now semi-retired, I'm not going to say you're never going to see him in public again but he is not out there every week said: "If I go to TNA, it's a cry to be euthanized".
To answer your question, with Ring of Honor, I'm with in spirit. I believe in the style of wrestling, I believe in those guys, I believe in the young guys who are getting a chance. I was the executive producer of television for three years. I oversaw the sale to Sinclair Broadcasting in the first year and a half on the air. I'm not going to knock people but let's put it this way, they bought my concept but they didn't execute my concept. I'm not talking creatively; I'm talking how the business can be structured and where the tapings can be and the entire concept of how it can work. Some were good reasons that it didn't work, some were no reason at all and some were really stupid reasons but I got to the point where I said: "I'm working way to hard, I'm on the road a hundred plus nights a year for being over fifty years old, I'm in bad shape, I don't see a light at the end of the tunnel and it's time for me to bow out. I hope they succeed. I think those young guys and I like to see a promotion that treats wrestling credibility, as a sport and as an athletic endeavor which it definitely is. I would like to see them succeed but the last year of my life has been the most stress free and happiest of the last thirty.
If Dixie (Carter) called, the first words out of her mouth better: "I apologize to you for lying to you and to your face and over the phone and about you when I departed the company." Then I might listen to what she had to say but not to go on the road anywhere near close to full time and I don't know why I'm saying that right now cause it might make her call me. Probably not. I told Dutch Mantel one time: "The people that have the money don't know how and the people that know how don't have the money." That's why wrestling is in the state that it's in and unfortunately Dixie has listened to the wrong people and continues to and has been led to the prim roads path and I would feel sorry for her except that she lied to me in the last conversation that we had and I don't like that very much. People that lie to me generally get banished or vanished to the planet Pluto in my mind.
