"Matt was a heck of a guy, loved to fight, always ready to go," Von Erich said. "[He] loved a fist fight, for sport. He enjoyed a fight as a sport. We respected each other. I always liked Matt, what a good guy he was, always ready, always felt good, what a good guy he was. Him & Buzz Sawyer, they were a great tag team. Hard living guys, very good athletes. We had a celebrity deal down here, we had a track meet, they picked four of us to run a relay. Me, Tommy Rogers and Matt Borne were a team. I started it off. We were looking good and I thought Rogers would be the fastest, [but] Matt got the stick and Matt took off."
