“I was a guy, at that time, watching that as a fan. That was after I had hurt my back and left, and so I was home watching that as a fan. I have to tell you, as a guy sitting there at home watching it, not calling anybody and finding out what’s going on, it was huge. I can remember sitting there thinking ‘Oh my goodness, that is genius.’ And that they were doing that … for me it was absolutely one of the greatest moments, I think, in wrestling history, period. And ooh, it almost stings a little bit to say that because I wasn’t a part of it.
“That was just something you didn’t see. You could talk about it all day, you could reference somebody on TV. Think of it [like], it’s no different at the Oscars if somebody says something mean about the president. It’s a whole other thing to, during the State of the Union, you walk up on stage while he’s talking and say something do him. Nobody does that. That’s what these guys were doing. They were going to the back door of the competition and knocking on the door, and they weren’t answering. It was absolutely huge.”
