Tom Magee Doesn't Remember Being Touted As Vince McMahon's Next WWF Champion

The Two Man Power Trip welcomed the "Mega Man" Tom Magee for an EXTREMELY RARE and VERY REVEALING interview. Tom Magee is now known to most fans as Bret Hart's opponent in the "LOST" match from 1986 where a young Hitman was tasked with helping newcomer Tom Magee impress the WWF brass. This match would later be dubbed the "holy grail" of wrestling footage due to the reaction of Vince McMahon crowning Magee as his next champion and possible replacement for Hulk Hogan down the line. In this conversation, Magee opens up about the recent explosion of fan interest regarding this match, what exactly happened following his dark match backstage with management and what he did after all the madness that was the WWF in the late 1980s. We also dig deep into "Mega Man's" past and find out the body-building influences he had as well as how he maintained his absolutely impressive physique.

Was it ever stated to him that Vince McMahon crowned him his “next champion”:

"So that's interesting because I don't recall anybody gushing over me verbally. I certainly knew people were watching me and I had a lot of attention but in terms of somebody giving me like an over the top appraisal like that was just a no. But I don't think that was their style. They weren't prone to gushing or overly praising and so no I don't recall that."

"I had an audience with all of those guys, including Pat Patterson and I was just trying to get to know everyone. But I felt despite all of the other things that I've said that there is also an element of and I don't want to say matter of fact-ness but they are professionals and everyone is professional so it is expected that you are going to go out there and you are going to do something really neat. You didn't just get there because it is hard to get in there so if you did get in there than of course you are going to do something that is high level or elite otherwise you weren't there."
