Brian Knobbs on having a "terrorist" gimmick:

"They needed someone to tag with Col Debeers and we were going up against Francis and Jimmy Snuka Superfly and they wanted someone that he was suppose to be from South Africa doing his thing. We needed someone in there. So they took me young upcoming wrestler and they put a mask on this lovely face as the Terrorist. The first time I wrestled in Denver and later in San Francisco.

"The first time we did it I came back. I couldn't even breath. I went over to my good mentor friend Curt Hennig, Mr. Perfect, and said please can you take the mask off. 'I can't breath. He tied it in a knot. They had to take the mask off. I almost passed out."

Knobbs on The Nasty Boys in the WWE Hall of Fame:


"We are hoping hopefully this coming year. It's up to Vince McMahon. WWE really jumped our career after that match at Wrestlemania 7."
