On when he thinks he did the best work of his career: “No, that would have come earlier. Probably 1986, 1987.”

On working with Hercules: “He was spot on, man. Every now and then, he hit you with one that would wake you up or put you to sleep. For the most part though, he was spot on. I loved him so much man, he was such a great guy. a good friend of mine. Oh, my God. I miss him too, man. Wow.”

On what he thought held Hercules back in WWE: “Oh, he found a way of disappearing every now and then. Yeah, he would disappear for a day or two. Yeah, he did [have substance abuse problems]. Alcohol was his demon.”
