One Man Gang On Working With Hulk Hogan, What Andre The Giant Told Him After A Match, Tom Zenk

George Gray, f.k.a. The One Man Gang and Akeem, was on the twelfth episode of the School of Morton podcast co-hosted by WWE Hall of Fame Inductee Ricky Morton of the Rock n' Roll Express. On the podcast, he discussed his time in WWE, facing Andre The Giant, Hulk Hogan, Tom Zenk and more.

Facing Hulk Hogan:

"Really you can't describe it... one of those experiences. The noise was so loud in the ring when his music hit and he actually made his entrance. The noise was just so loud it was deafening. You really couldn't even call spots in the ring, the people were so loud. The good thing with Hulk Hogan was once you had a set match a good fifteen, twenty minute set match you could take that match all around the whole circuit".

His memories of "The Z-Man" Tom Zenk:

"Once he left the business he kind of just vanished. From what I remember of the guy he was a nice guy. He had a great look about him, to me he was a good worker in the ring."

Memories on working against Andre the Giant:

"I went out in the ring... and this is Andre the Giant so every time he hits me and I'm flying all over the place. After the match he calls me back and sits me down and he said, 'boss I'm already over. I came in here to get you over. So I don't want you flying around like that. I want to have a regular match with you.' I was kinda like, 'this is Andre the Giant, he doesn't have to do that'."
