Tye Dillinger recently spoke to Planeta Wrestling to discuss various topics. Here are the highlights.
On Rick Rude being announced for the Hall Of Fame:
“When he was announced I took a second to – while I was trying to Tweet about it, because I didn’t have the right words. Growing up as a kid I was a fan of Rick Rude, those kind of guys I was always drawn to. They were larger than life characters and really grabbed my attention. Rick Rude was on the top of that list. I thought everything about the guy screamed mega-star. To have him inducted into the WWE, I don’t know why it’s personal to me, I guess he was such a big part of my life growing up, I feel a sense of accomplishment, and pride, that this guy I idolized growing up is now in the Hall Of Fame. His career is officially validated, this guy will last forever through the record books. I think to his family and everyone else that is a fan over Rick Rude, this is a long time coming and it’s a wonderful thing the WWE is doing for him.”
On why he decided not to join Sanity:
“I don’t believe in their way of thinking. Eric Young has a certain set of values, and I’m surprised that he found three other people that share those same values and that same vision. I just don’t. I don’t believe in the eradicating people that stand in your way. I don’t believe in, if you don’t get your way, you force your way. I believe in competition, I believe in the better man wins. I believe that if you hang on long enough something good is going to happen. So when the opportunity to join them came to light, it was a very easy decision to say no. Based on those principles alone.”
