The Godfather Talks About His Raw Is XXX Experience, WWE Legends Contract



Charles Wright, better known to longtime WWE fans as The Godfather, recently appeared on the Universal Wrestling podcast for an in-depth interview covering all things pro wrestling.

During the discussion, the WWE Hall of Fame legend spoke about his experience at the WWE Monday Night Raw 30th Anniversary show this week, as well as the status of his WWE Legends contract.

Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview where he touches on these topics with his thoughts.

On his experience at WWE Raw XXX: “It’s always great seeing the guys, especially the ones you haven’t seen in a while. I got there around two o’clock. I just had hip surgery. That’s Wednesday. They canceled me because they had a little more for me to do, but they had to cancel it because at that point, I was basically still in a walker. I had some appearances this week and I did them on crutches, but they called me Saturday. They were like, ‘Hey, we need you. I’m like, ‘Guys, I’m on crutches right now. I’m not going on TV with crutches’, so they came up with that little thing that I did. But it was great, man. I was in there with Hogan and Dallas. I gotta get my knees done pretty soon and Dallas was like, ‘As soon as you get your knee done, come on down and spend some time with me.’ Taker was in there, Teddy Long, Ron Simmons, Bradshaw, Alundra Blayze. We were all just there kicking. You had big screens and telling old stories and lies and taking some pictures. It was a good time.”

On recently signing another five years on his Legends contract: “To this day, I’ve been on a Legends contract since 2003 when I expired, and I’ve just now signed another one for five years. So I mean, you know, that says something to me. I’ve been on the payroll since 2003. It ain’t bad being The Godfather, believe me.”
