It is dead that is they're protecting partner but do prewar to. Is character just does such a huge. I'd like people opportunity just comes to got you very up particular search yeah this is really good job growth albeit a bit character show the likable. I've been like didn't interview a few times today and I just I mean it it obviously it's a character that it never you can see some of that realism and Hammond and now ought that you set authenticated is. A great way to describe him he's such a fun guy to watch in the ring into a super nice guy tipped. Obviously a it's their favorite memory from looking back in the days of of your wrestling days they a story that you do absolutely love sharing where there be a weird event weird match or just. Is there something from your days where you're like you know when you're sitting around with some of the fellas and an ever when she swapping stories trying to one up each other what's the one that you love to share. Well gosh may have below it material he records its order that's you know sort of it's hard it's hard to be sure to pick a match and it's all one match do we should have made him a match there's a good bit of highlight reel kind of like to meet the first major made of in my life or Russell Harley race you received a BA world champion at the Q auditorium so loose sellout crowd are they had that was select. I would you on the peninsula despite dvd dreary before. There that mention output via the map like OK it is usual places you know bureau what you give so why that's a you know my first social media. Deal the first time an immediate Randy savage ever had to match their church or we're retouched wrestled maybe four. Or at the you know around you know another world respect for repeat your computer but I you know those fortunate pensions. How. It at all artillery base at the you know you guys are local kogan Richie eatery could be the backward which you're a that it that it just. Well she came a moment in the movie where you went back to you did did that the duke did some blog are the the trump arena right tell ya gotta and I regret your crazy. Yep Libya parents so yeah that was that was a special moment ago a bit. You know you're the biggest grabbed him. Summer slim if England and we we wrestled and we restating of that 80000 people a little girl's. I was a pair for the navy you know eliminate 3000. People would have doomed to Detroit. Partially patriarchy. I came just should ever be quick they are started like. Just after that there are a chilly because of people are so large trailer Brussels for a that was pretty thick true we were reroute so broad popular and poor Irish. Comment so yeah what that has just be overwhelming doubt that many people in one arena watching all of you got we do what you do in the ground that yeah I can only imagine a are my wanted to develop also in the film when they were talking and he was Terry funk dad even brought up the fact that that the character of the million Darman was. Obviously based on Vince McMahon himself in the sense that they're like hey this guy is making a character that you would be if he was a wrestler you'd be crazy not to take that opportunity. And Terry you have had a great history in the sense that he helped train you is it crazy to see that he's still mixes it up in the ring. Well you know I don't think he's done and I think he's pretty much retired military search jury returned about eighty terror acts a couple of contract that. But I think he really has retired now. But you you know we're one of the most bureau each more like a brother villager that a friend of our ability to mobilize such. Destroy other my father were the bench friends here at they've middle of but he the other. Ever Barbara Bush and you're right they're rushing with three draft. 1966 Europe breezy. Yet Jerry was a guy always went to repeal would work toward more mature at the by the security bureau beaches you know he's so you know. Cabinda they've got to explain that to a bit. And it was kind of like bureau. If you were going to be secure traditional no show decision bits would be. You know you're in the can actually Nigeria after I left as he evolved itself for the show we kind of gave their care. Does kind of crazy to think they go and he's always some sort of wrestling himself and how he loses recently in a match Erin and in the ring with Kevin Owens and took ahead but.
