One of the most significant events in your career was your decision to
leave the nWo what brought you to that decision?
I think one of the main things was frustration. I wanted to be part of
something because for much of my life I had been an outcast. Once I was
in the nWo, I realized I was nothing but an errand boy and an enforcer
for the nWoand that is not what I am about.
What do you mean when you say you were an outcast?
I have always been so much bigger than anyone else a freak my whole life.
I was 6 foot 9 in the 8th grade. When you are 6 foot 9at 14 years old,
have chest hair and shave, you are a freak. The stigmatism that I grew
up with as a kid has carried over into my adult life, and probably made
me a little more aggressive than I should be in some areas.
Lets switch gear a little bit, what are your plans in the future in wrestling,
notice I didn't limit that to WCW
For me right now, my plans are to re-group and get re-organized in my
mind. To try to separate myself from tag situations and re-condition myself
to pursue the World Title.
