Here are the highlights: (the full audio version of the interview will be down below the highlights.) 

Working With Donald Trump:

“It was great. He’s a great guy and he had all black hair. He was just as powerful now as he was back then. Donald is a cool guy, and Vince is a really cool boss.”


First TV Tapings In WWE W/ Ted DiBiase:


“For about a year, we did nothing but vignettes all around the world, dogging people out, throwing money here and there. Showing everyone that everybody has a price. We proved that; we went in front of Judges, Lawyers, showing that everyone has a price and it showed.”

Vince McMahon As A Boss:

“He cares about his talent and he’s got a great work ethic and does things right. He wants you to be on time and have Part A and Part B did right, so when you work for someone, you have to come on time and be there and do everything right.”


How Much Money He Made As A Manager:


“It was good money. You are getting paid a percentage of the gate. Any house shows you are getting paid a percentage of the gate; or any pay per views, you’re getting paid percentage of the gates. You only got paid if you worked compared to today’s guaranteed money so you try to sell out everywhere you go and we had sell outs everywhere we went. It was good to work with shows where Hulk Hogan and Andre the Giant worked. Andre was no joke, he was the real deal. WrestleMania 4 & 5 were with Andre, Trump Plaza in Atlantic City in 1988 and 1989 and it packed, they still can’t get that type of draw today.”
