- Speaking with Wrestling Inc.'s Nick Hausman, Mr. T said that it has been cool to see the sons and daughters of friends from his WWF tenure competing today.
“When I first heard the name [Randy Orton], I was like, ‘Man, I wonder if that’s Cowboy Orton’s son.’ And it was!” Mr. T said. “I said, ‘Oh man, this is wild.’ Watching him has just been really amazing. Thinking about how far we’ve come, all the way from Madison Square Garden to here. I’ve seen the new guys and stuff like that. I would think, ‘Man, I know this guy’ because I know his father, and stuff like that. Even with The Rock, I remember his father Rocky Johnson. Man, it’s just amazing. Now you look at the Nature Boy, Ric Flair, his daughter. It’s just special.”
