When asked about the status of the book, he replied:

He was further asked if the book would include anecdotes, he said that there were plenty of them in the book. Upon the topic of ribbers (meaning wrestlers who played practical jokes on others), he proceeded by revealing some of the biggest ribbers in the business:

"Master ribber would have to be -- Davey Boy was a good ribber, Owen Hart was a master ribber, Marty Jannetty was a ribber, there was so many”


Moving on, he was asked about the new generation and the role he played in bringing them up. He replied:

"You see people in WWE that came through me, already had a talent that was not yet discovered and if it wasn't discovered by me it would have been discovered eventually."

He also commented about his relationship with Hulk Hogan by saying:

“All I can say is Hogan was one of the greatest guys I've ever met, he's a tremendous talent, he got one of the biggest pops I've ever heard in my life in the business. I don't got a bad thing to say about Hogan."

To conclude, he was asked about his return to the WWE to which he had to say:

"You said the words, never say never."
