April 29, 1998
You told me a story about your seventh title reign in Japan, and an honor
you were awarded, could you share that story with us?
Race: Yes. When a samurai swordsman won his seventh battle in the mythical
days of Japan, he was declared a god. When I won the World's Title for
the seventh time, I was declared God of Wrestling in three of the major
newspapers throughout Japan.
Apparently, the Japanese media covers wrestling in a lot more detail than
a lot of our American media.
Race: Everything that happens in Japan wrestling-wise is covered like
a major event. If you had a professional football team in your city, it
would be covered exactly the same.
You have not been active in the sport for a little while. What have you
been doing to keep yourself busy?
Race: Right now, I do a little bounty hunting. I do a little process serving,
just some things to keep me up and moving around instead of sitting here
and getting all stiff.
I understand you have a video tape series coming out.
Race: Yes I do. As a matter of fact, the video about myself will be coming
out this week. I will be debuting the week of April 12th at a national
card signing in the Antioch Mall in Kansas City. There's three of them
out so far, but the one about me just came out.
What are the other tapes that you have out?
Race: One is Helloooo Wrestling Fans with our announcer, myself, Bob Giegel,
Bulldog Bob Brown, Mike George and Bill Kirkson.
You showed me some of the first tape in the series, and I was quite impressed
with it. How can people find out more about this video tape series?
Race: They can contact Evergreen Video at (816) 374-5828. Their address
