"Little known history fact, I was wrestling alongside Sting and Kevin Nash, and we were about to take on Jeff Jarrett, Samoa Joe, and Hulk Hogan. That was, in TNA at the time, that was going to be it for me. For me to take the boot from Hogan? Come on. I wrestled Ric Flair in a tag match on ECW while he was there. I never got to take Dusty [Rhodes] elbow," he said.

When discussing who he would like to work in a dream match from today's group, Pope named Dolph Ziggler.

"Dream match, I'll give a shoutout to a current guy who I just love and never got to face; Dolph Ziggler. He's excellent. When you think of Dolph, you think of Mr. Perfect Curt Hennig. Dolph is like the closest (to that). The boy is just good," he said.

Da Pope is currently part of the NWA roster. He recently lost the NWA Television Title to Tyrus.
