On the latest episode of Main Event Radio, Ryan Rider interviewed WWE Legend the Honky Tonk Man.
On current WWE stars he’s a fan of
“I saw Kevin Owens at an independent show a couple of years ago and I saw what he did in the ring and I wished him well. I knew he do really well and I’m glad he is getting a break.
“Samoa Joe, he really deserves it. He’s toiled in the independents and around the world. After 10-15 years he deserves a chance to prove himself on the main stage.
“AJ Styles is doing really well right now. He’s a breakout star from the new generation and that’s fun to see. And my trusted star, Randy Orton. I think he’s the greatest talent there. He’s an all-around talent. He can talk, he can work, he doesn’t put up with any nonsense.”
On being in the WWE Hall of Fame
“If it comes, it comes. If it doesn’t, it doesn’t. They have people that they choose at a certain time. It doesn’t affect my life at all. I mean it’s not like the sportswriters or the fans vote for the Hall of Fame. There’s no physical building. It’s not that big a deal. There’s a lot of guys that should be in that aren’t. Rick Rude is a great choice for this year.”
