Just prior to Wrestlemania weekend, I sat down with Bill Eadie (Ax) & Barry Darsow (Smash) of the legendary WWE Tag Team Demolition.
Here are some highlights from the full video interview above.
How they avoiding the WWF party scene in the '80s:
Ax: "We got into wrestling with the concept that it is a job. Why go on the road with the injuries, being separated from you family, and make some money to lose it all? We both felt that we weren't doing this for a lifetime, but as a job."
Memories of Mr Fuji:
Smash: "When we drove down the road, it was always Bill, myself and Mr. Fuji. He would critique our matches on the trips which were four to for five hours long. We always talked about what we were going to do the next night and the next week so he was a real manager too."
On Andre The Giant:
Ax: "Andre is the godfather to my two daughters. He was a great and personal friend of ours."
two to three hours ahead of time and he would be playing cribbage."
Thoughts on WWE Hall of Fame and why Demolition have not been inducted:
Ax: "We do not lose any sleep over it. Fans and people like you on the podcasts they know we should be in it. And there are a lot of deserving teams. If we make it fine. We know we had a good career.
Smash: "The Rock 'n' Roll Express were inducted this year and they were an incredible team. Two great guys that we worked with and they deserve to be in there. Congratulations to the Rock 'n' Roll Express."
