Q. Are you still doing the DDP Yoga program and in contact with Dallas?
A. Yes I talk to Dallas almost every day and DDP Yoga is part of my everyday life
Q. One of the greatest honors a person can have is to be inducted into the hall of fame in their profession, how much did it mean to you to get inducted into the WWE hall of fame?
A. At the time it meant the world to me, the big aaahhh moment, finally where I belonged. But I will tell ya that after the movie came out and had such a huge impact on so many people that has what has made my whole career worth it all!
Q. You worked with some of the all time greats in the wrestling business from Andre the Giant, Ravishing Rick Rude, Macho Man, Sting and nearly everyone in between, who was your favorite opponent to work with in those days?
A. Too many to narrow it down, so many great matches and great workers.
Q. You have always been considered one of the greatest minds in the history of professional wrestling, do you follow todays product at all? and if so who on the current WWE roster impresses you?
A. I honestly dont get to watch it much but my current favorite would be Bray Wyatt
Q. You may be the most famous wrestler that was never the world champion, did that bother you or do you see it as a positive that you were able to achieve so much success and never needed a belt to make you a star?
A. Yeah, I dont think I ever needed it. Plus it would have just been one more thing I had to carry around with me lol
Q. How would your compare what you are doing now with your Unspoken Word Tour to wrestling in front of thousands of people? I would assume it is a totally different kind of adrenaline rush.
A. Its still a great feeling, wrestling was my love but doing the Unspoken Word tour allows me to relive those days again, and remembering things I had long forgotten. But doing this tour allows me to connect with fans in a whole new way. Especially when helping others with addiction, now thats a rush!
Q. What can people expect out of your live show?
A. The show isnt JUST for wrestling fans, the opener Alex Ansel will leave you on the floor rolling in laughter, then I come out and scrape ya back up off the floor and starp ya in for crazy and insane from my past!
