Former WWE Superstar Kamala sat down with the Voice of Choice Bruce Wirt and Nemar Wells in one of the most hard-hitting interviews in the history of the VOC Nation Radio Network. Kamala talked about racism in the WWF, Vince McMahon, his hatred for wrestling, and more.
The entire interview can be heard at this link on the "VOC Nation Wrestling Vault" show.
Here are some highlights of the interview:
Working with Andre the Giant:
"Andre wasn't the friendly guy that he appeared to be. He was real temperamental and had a nasty attitude. When I first started working with him, he called me a (derogatory) name in the ring and I beat him up. After that, I never had another problem with him. A lot of (top guys had problems with Andre too). He would just go out and mop the floor with people. He treated (wrestlers) nasty, and the fans too. Andre would do it just about every night. Guys would watch through the curtain to see what he was going to do."
Working with Hulk Hogan:
"We had a lot of good matches and drew a lot of fans all over. Working with Hogan was easy and a treat. I loved working with him."
Racism in the WWE:
"In Summerslam 92, I had one of my biggest matches against the Undertaker. He made a half million dollars and I made 13 (thousand). There was a lot of racism in the WWE. I remember so many times when I was there, I would get there early and find me a nice dressing room; the agents would (kick me out and) let (the white stars) have the dressing room. When I went out to the ring, I was a superstar; backstage I was a nothing."
"I love the Undertaker. If I see him on TV, I'll stop and watch. I love his gimmick, and I like him. He's a respectable man and I got along real good with him, and I love his work."
Retirement and regrets:
"I don't miss it. I wish I had made money where I could have retired and enjoyed life. I worked so hard all those years and didn't make any money. If I had made money, I would have done the right thing and invested it. I don't watch wrestling today. If my friends are watching it, I'll get up and leave. It brings back bad memories."
"Vince McMahon has certain people that he will pay. If you get along with Vince, do him all kind of sexual favors, then you'll get along good with him. But if you just (do your job and) mind your own business, be there on time, then he seems to have less respect for you. There was a lot of men with men in those days and even men with boys. I know a lot of guys that (failed drug tests) and it was documented that they passed, because they were top guys and I know what they did."
