In the following excerpt from the interview, Horowitz discusses how he’d like to lend his skilled hands and experience in the wrestling business to either AEW or to the WWE Performance Center. He also discusses and names many of the all-time great superstars he was wrestled over the years and why he was such a reliable craftsman in the ring. The full episode can be downloaded at this link.
Who would go over his matches during his WWE tenure:
"Vince doesn't have to come to me and he doesn't come to me he has his agents to do that. That would be somebody like Tony Garea, Cheif Jay Strongbow, Grizzly Smith, Rene Goulet or somebody of that nature unless it is something that is really hot and heavy and you are getting explicit instructions than it could be Pat Patterson or Gerry Brisco."
Being able to adapt to so many different styles:
"Well, obviously I did something well for myself because I did it on my own. Remember now, I wasn't brought in by my great wrestling father or something like that or brother or cousin or a promoter knew me this was just a guy that was just trying his to work his tail off. Another case in point is Otto Wanz and when I went to Austria. This gentleman had been contacting me probably three years straight to come to Austria and I never went because I was involved with WCW or WWF and was under contract. He understood until one year he called me and I was ready to go and it was awesome and it was great and he treated me unbelievable. He doesn't go by are you this or are you that. No. It is you've got talent, you respect, you are listening, you are an athlete and that is how he judged you. Not by your gimmick or whose brother you are or whose son you are."
