Mick Foley always talks about the story that what inspired him to be a wrestler was seeing you live doing the Superfly Splash off the top of the cage. How does that make you feel that someone who became a big star was inspired by you to get into wrestling?
"It was a great thing when I got to meet him. He was a grown man and wanted to get into the business and everything else. He's such a fantastic kid and such a humble guy…I love that guy; he's really down to earth."
A lot of guys now are doing flips and crazy dives and stuff but the Superfly Splash still holds up as probably the best high-flying move of all time. Why do you see yours stand out above other moves?
"Well, it's about loving what I do. When I go in the ring, they always have this thing in their minds 'Is he going to fly?' That's the most beautiful thing that I always had. I had to do it; I don't have a choice because that's what I created in my career. My love to the fans varies to make them go home happy."
