I believe it is the joy. For me, I found it as a result of, after I was punk and everybody was making enjoyable of me, wrestling was the place I might go to flee. I might watch 9 hours of wrestling on a Saturday, you already know? You might get the fucking WWF at 10 a.m., then what was subsequent? AWA at midday, then you definately’d get the Beautiful Women of Wrestling from 1 to three p.m., then you definately’d get Georgia Championship Wrestling on TBS, after which, perhaps when you’re fortunate, you’d get a Saturday Evening’s Predominant Occasion. Then, at 11 p.m., you’d get a Mid-South factor. So, I’d simply sit at residence on a Saturday and take in all the pieces; that is the place I noticed The Freebirds and Ric Aptitude, and all these guys. I simply liked it.

If the gang is happy, it makes for a greater present — each in wrestling and with FOZZY. So that you get lots of crossover as a result of there’s that sure vibe in each. Actually WWE superstars are like rock stars — bigger than life, excessive personalities — and that is what you are at all times searching for in rock-n-roll. Typically you get it, and generally you do not, and generally you get that in wrestling, and generally you do not. Particularly if you go to a WWE present with all the fireplace [and loud noise] and pyrotechnic, lots of instances it is greater than a rock present, than a rock present you may see. There’s a widespread floor between the 2.”
