Reflecting on colleagues lost through the years:

“It is like a family member dying. There are always in your hearts and that is gonna live because I think of the good times and I worked with them all as Mr. X and I remember that in Providence, Rhode Island we had a Royal Rumble and I worked with all of the guys. To see them pass away and be gone it is like as I said a family member dying. But you look back on it fondly and you get a smile on your face when you think about it and that is the bad part of life that people don't live forever and you lose some of the greats and you lose some good friends and they are like family members because you live with them for all of those years on the road, working with them, eating with them, sleeping with them, going overseas, flying with them and everything."

 

Working with top talent:

"I enjoyed every night and I enjoyed being there and getting dressed and doing it. WrestleMania will always be my top pick and I love to watch that but as Mr. X the guys I worked with the likes of Bruno Sammartino and his son and to me I couldn't believe it. I couldn't believe that I was in the ring with Bruno Sammartino and to think about that. That is one of my top ones but also The British Bulldogs as Mr. X because they used to really be (as we say in the business) snug with everyone especially Tom (Dynamite Kid) was a really stiff guy to work with but I enjoyed it and I endured it."
