I'd love to work in the WWE again, I just don't know in what capacity. As for the hall of fame, that's out of my hands. The best of dvd would be great for me, I just don't know who else! Actually that's a pretty good idea to release a "Legends" line. I have no clue who I would want to portray me in a movie. Belushi is great but too skinny. I am definitely NOT thrilled with my action figure. I know I'm not Batista but darn! They made me so fat! I prefer my old figure that although I was big I looked strong. In reality I fit somewhere in the middle. 'Quake
Don't feel bad about your figure, 'Quake. We all love you.
It's time once again for Schemer Presents: A totally worthwhile show that'll sometimes teach ya stuff. Produced by Schemer! Written by Schemer! Directed by Schemer and starring me: Schemer!... Brought to you by the Snarleyville Toxic Chemical Company; One of the truly great chemical companies!
I recently got myself a copy of War Games 95,and just wanted to ask you about that match. For some reason it lookd like were very uncomfortable in the cage...especially around Sting. Didi you and him have a beef with each other...or was I just seeing things?

Hey Quake. I was just wondering what kind of a guy Ted DiBiase was behind the scenes? I once read an interview with Hulk Hogan and he said Ted was one of the most easy-going and likeable guys he ever worked with. And if you ever speak to him, tell him he's the Man!
I've got to ask, what made you decide to move to Texas? How do you like living there? If there was another place you could live in this world, where would that be? Also, have you ever been to Hot Springs, Arkansas?

Just wondering: How often do you get noticed and approached in public? When you're at the movies, or out with the kids, do you get recognized a lot? Also, how do you deal with autograph seekers when you're in a bad mood, running late for a meeting or just generally not in the mood?

Favorite sushi-Spicy tuna which I haven't been able to have since starting chemo I've only watched a few Godzilla movies- so-so I had no beef with Sting- he got along with everyone Rick Martel, and Kerry Von Erich were two of the most easy guys to get along with. Rick was a little quiet, but a true gentleman, as was Kerry, but he loved to talk to the other guys more. Ted, too was a good guy, sometimes a little bit of ego, but always respected, as everyone knows, a HECK of a wrestler. I moved to Texas for the treatment of my cancer. Never been to Hot Springs. Would love to live in Canada again. I don't get recognized a lot right now. The other day was the first time in about a year. If I'm rushed, most people understand if I can't sign. Well to answer the question about being a jobber- I'm pretty sure you're taking a shot at me. but that's okay. My training started in Japan. I was treated as a typical "young boy" and did my share of jobs over there. It's part of the job and training. I did plenty of jobs in WCW. I don't have a problem doing what the boss wants. I got paid the same win or lose. 'Quake
As always thank you for answering my questions. If you ever do decide to visit Hot Springs, then let me know and I'll see what kind of deals I can get for you since I currently work at the Arlington Hotel. I'm a pantry chef right now and there are alot of guys in the kitchen who love wrestling. I know they'd be thrilled to have you and your family staying with us.

hey Quake. I have 2 questions regarding your favorite moment in wrestling, summerslam 90.
1- was the table hogan slammed you on supposed to break? if so, that would have been one of the earliest broken tables ever.
2- damn man, didnt those chair shots hurt? those left some serious welts on your back. man those had to hurt.
personally that ppv is my favorite ppv ever for several reasons. i mean sapphire gets bought out, there is early 90's propaganda, texas tornado, the hart foundations first tag title, the blue steel cage, duggan sings, 'sewer rats', and of course your in the main event. man, what a great event.
anyways...whats your take on the questions? thanks.

With my finish, they were always protected, never hurt anyone, land about half my weight on them at first, then all of it. Define "anyone" to me. You mean a wrestler or a fan? I guess having my job on the line convinced me to be the Shark, and being told how great it would be. Is that good enough? Hogan hoped the table would break. It wasn't planned. The chair shots hurt. I'll check out Star Wars if my kids want to. 'Quake
John, has Vince or anyone at WWE contacted you about being inducted into the WWE hall of fame sometime in the future? I think everyone here will agree that it's only a matter of time. I moved from Baton Rouge to northern Michigan a couple years ago and definitely plan on attending Wrestlemania next year in Chicago. It would be great to see you inducted into the hall of fame live and in person! And now a very important question: Who would you have induct you into the hall of fame? My favorite Quake memory growing up: Watching you fight Hulk Hogan at the Riverside Centroplex in Baton Rouge, Lousiana many years ago. You are definitely a larger than life individual. God Bless.
