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.

Remembering more details of the match with each retelling:
"It was all really interesting and like I say it helps me to bring back some of the little anecdotes that I have of different interactions going on there. I told you about when they trying to figure out who I was going to go out there with and who I was going to compete against in the match and it ended up being Bret but it could have been Hercules Hernandez or could've been someone else. There were other things that you would hear people that aren't talking to you but they are talking like you are not there or they are ten or fifth-teen feet away and you hear something. I came from the bodybuilding world so when I came with my trunks I went to a bigger trunk and more of a wrestling style trunk that was not typical. Somebody else was saying that he can't go out there in those trunks because they are too small and I recognized also when Bret and I were in that match when he goes to lift me back into the ring he friggin' torture-tests my trunks and I'm glad those things were well made and well-engineered because they definitely stood the test but I get to show some of my explosiveness that most people don't have and that world champion strength athletes have."
