TWO MAN POWER TRIP OF WRESTLING 05/15/20: THE GODFATHER

Godfather talking about WWF allowing him to be this character: "They finally let me be me instead of making me a voodoo monster or ultimate fighter or trying to make me be a heel, they finally let me be me. They gave me so much creativity. I would come up with stuff. It was all ad lib. The Godfather was never scripted. They might want me to hit a point, but I was free to do what I want.
Godfather talking about the origins of the Ho Train move: "Shane McMahon came up with that. I was in the ring with Shane McMahon. My gimmick was starting to get over and get some ratings. He said you have to come up with something. He said how about you shoot them (his opponent) in the corner and then you wind up like a train. He asked if I remember Soul Train. He said how about if you say Ho Train. That was all Shane McMahon's idea where I splash them in the corner."

WHAT A RUSH PODCAST ROAD WARRIOR ANIMAL 05/15/20: DARK SIDE OF THE RING

Animal talking about if Dark Side of the Ring did a good job on the Road Warriors episode: "I think it was done more than fair. They got some parts of it wrong. I never said I've had enough, I'm done with the team. Hawk is the one who F'd off and left. Left us hanging like Paul Ellering said on the clip, we were in Hershey, PA waiting for Hawk at TV and Hawk never showed up. They didn't get in the part about Hawk calling Vince's secretary and saying I quit. They didn't get the part of me finishing up, being a business man. They didn't get the fact that Hawk just said, screw everything and took off to Japan and made his own deal. They didn't get any of that in so actually Vice was very nice in the fact they didn't do any of that stuff which they could have done very easily because that was all discussed."
