"Oh man, shoot man...Some people didn't get opportunities to do that. I mean, a lot of people didn't get the opportunity to get in the ring with, I mean sharing the locker room with Andre The Giant, you know, I had the opportunity to be in the presence of that man. But, Bret was a nice guy to be around with, we rode together, me, him, and Owen rode together a couple of times, on the roads, you know. It was pretty cool." (from 26:40 onwards)
