Paul Orndorff On Why He Doesn't Watch WWE, Joining The Business, Working In Japan

WWE Hall of Famer "Mr. Wonderful" Paul Orndorff stopped by Under the Mat Radio to discuss his Hall of Fame Induction, his feelings about Vince, what drove him to wrestle and more. Here are some of the highlights:

The product today:

"I don't watch it, I haven't watched it in over 20 years. You know why? Because it's the only show in town, that's why I don't watch it anymore. That's why no one watches it anymore, because of the people running it and it's got no talent like it used to. [There's] no more places for them to go, nowhere for them to learn."

What got him into the wrestling business:

"I was drafted by the New Orleans Saints, and quite frankly, I got worn out playing football. I got tired of it. With wrestling, there were so many variables that could go with it so many directions you could go. Every night it was different every night, it was a different town 7 nights a week and twice on Sunday."

Working in Japan:

"Yeah it's different there. They are so used to going out there and going at it. That's why I like it over there, because of my style. I can go any style, hook up, lock up, take you down, and do all kinds of amateur moves.

Orndorff also discussed his thoughts on Vince, his feelings on Hogan, the Wrestlemania 1 main event and much more. You can check out the full interview by clicking here.
