Your chosen Truth Network podcast is starting in just seconds. Enjoy it, share it, but most of all, thank you for listening and choosing The Truth Podcast Network. This is the Truth Network call for questions and answers they would fall off the devil you know me already welcome the questions and answers with coal all the birds were hey, I really appreciate the always great Odyssey great to have you on the show today. Let me just as first just ask this question of you I know you got some questions for me. Let me first ask this question of you for all of our listening audience out there heal me already that that doesn't sound like a Cajun Louisiana name gives little background on that name. There heal me little East low flow in Louisiana. How far east Mideast Middle East (though he's not busy Middle East as it is in the Middle East region of Turkey Turkey yeah I was born and raised in Turkey are moved to the US will secure low okay okay because you and I've got to know each other little bit day here here of of recent and your lovely bride Tina and you been very, very, it's been fun getting to know you guys and and I saw, I know a little bit about that background, but I know you see your dad was was like full-blooded Turkish. He was in. My mother was from South Carolina.
Okay well with the literary here. But she lived all over the world and I guess we met on a cruise. Mom got tired of me telling everybody that she was a mail-order bride and the quickly corrected me as my lack of humor that she was not a mail-order bride.
What I don't know why she did find you I find you full of humor about OIC to find any humor in my own mom would do her pet line would be. I am not amused which you knew at that point you crossed the line. The best thing you could just practice your Olympic backstroke and try to get out of it. It was good.
Thankfully, having parents who are from two different countries. They taught me Turkish and English at the same time so I was fluent never known and not known to languages. What also.
So here it is what it is. It's funny about what what is it that she was a mail order bride was that, is that MLE or MA IL mail order bride which will only show you since past I would ask her what you would get the I am not amused that look you go ahead Nikita. You just miss it. Should you and I did notice about you speak two languages fluently. I don't why all English really is my second language. Yeah, my two euro restaurant right that I had to learn I had to learn English like once I came to America. Like you, am a former Catholic, you will be well and it will in TV land anyway exactly so so so English and in the other languages Turkish Turkish say it's nice to meet you Nikita in Turkish, nice to meet you in Turkish, not English only been sending wall wall. I got there but part being I was just starting kindergarten will be left on so I cannot read or write Turkish very well, but you can speak of the drawbacks of going to school there and leaving because they are concretely teach you English literally in kindergarten and second language to them.
Then from there you go on the learn German, French, Italian, education is very important in that part of the world and it was important to my parents you know itself asking about the story is is you just verified and I told the store and on another show about. I was doing a a missions trip in Moldova over and private Bureau near the former Soviet Union and I met in Ukraine. Yeah, yeah, I met this 11-year-old little guy Henry the wire-rimmed round wire-rimmed glasses and your point. I mean I just befriended and we got there and and I'm like, and I don't know why, just like I like my Henry, how many, it was he related. You know me Henry not anyway. Am I coming languages to speak and he said five and I went out of town on the get out here like five like fluid is like Esther and to just what you're saying, French, German, Russian, of course, English and Spanish, and he could speak in full and I was just like I put you on the spot I put him on the spot I write Henry say this infraction say that in German. He just rounded off like you just did Turkish. But if you teach please. At least, hallux at such a young age. There is no preconceived wall of I don't learn this or you're embracing as a young person. Knowledge so your you're not you're not hesitant to learn your soaking it in less pretty amazing. I know your dad was a pretty outstanding doctor is while that's what kinda brought into the US right, it won't, but CEO wanted to better our family and came to the US he had practiced written on the medical school in the 50s in Washington DC and move back to Turkey met mom I think I got married 63 I came along and 67, and we moved to the US and 72, 73 and we lived in a small town in Ohio only excellent and from there Dan was starting to take his boards and once he passed he could practice anywhere in the country.
Intros a small town west of Charlotte called Lincolnton and in their percent.I know I said it had a tremendous practice area know from some stories you shared with me.
People absolutely loved loved your dad and and. And speaking of which, you got a pop-up part of the swing that was you got a printing business in the what's name your printing business.
There Lincolnton Lincoln printing services okay and and I know you do some some great work in a you made banners for me in an 8 x 10 posters, pictures and and and a number of you a whole host of things there at your printshop and and you do exemplary work. I think that's I say that word.
You do great work you do great work. Thank you and and it did not know you are you you thought your taken advantage like even in the sole of past lockdown shut down whatever down you want to downer you want to call it for for some people you take advantage that you lost an entire eBay bid online eBay business that is just you are just cranking out peers was crazy. Only you have some of the most unique products on on your eBay website of anyone I've ever known.
And maybe that must be the Turkish background of your hey I'll take a look at it is a complement. It is a complement love you and your bride Tina hey if people wanted to to to go on in and see some of your unique products. How would they find you on eBay homey it's very simple. The name of our store called name than a – TBD first name – TBD that symbolism. In other words, if it hey our official name is to be determined, but for now it's nail – Z_– – name – TBD that is heal me re: store I want to encourage you to listen out like for real.
He has some of the most unique things I've ever seen stuff that that maybe you're looking for, but don't know where to find it. I sure you will find it on heal. Besides you go check that out name – he be the so tell me you got a question or two for me on Q&A with the law. I do unity put me on the spot enough stress for three days over the slept very little will are.
I know that you were involved in multiple tech teams and even premium was very different in preparation first of the 2.2 versus the three okay and that you felt like you had to get everybody involved or were there constraints from the promoters and even maybe the other team like a I'm injured, so also does not take bumps this evening working okay. Can you explain the difference between the two. Three.
Tags that great great great question. The fact that you got singles tag six man. I was even involved in eight-man matches right hand and each each each scenario brings about a different different preparation, obviously even a single match knew the whole focus is on you and your opponent right and so you might even say there's there's even more pressure placed upon you in a single match tag match, especially for me early on in my career, learning it with Ivan uncle.
I bunch of toys and the donkey know it all and eventually the power of power to three to be what you feel we gave you all of course Dusty Rhodes American dream. The tag took some of that pressure off it and that you could then rely on your opponent, especially if in those days like you got what we what I would phrase kinda lost in the match, you know, one of things always told you to get lost, grab a hold well get lost in the tag match tag out and read and read regroup mentally. You know, and then a six man brought a different dynamic to it is not how you got against six guys for even the a man that you really you want to showcase every guy now to your point of maybe somebody's injured you can cover that up a little bit more and in a tag or six man ornate man certainly bought by helping that guy out who still going to perform but can't perform at high level. Casey's sustained some level of injury but he still expected to be there. The fans still expect to see him. And so it is easy your to cover that often so I hope that generally answers your question.
Does it yeah yeah so great question like like really great question for sure. I keep one more I do, I got we got time for one more question on if you were here you'll most of the Babyface. He came out and you were expecting blues and ransom raving from the fans were there is ever an option or was there ever an instance where they switched on. You like if you leave the bad guy right in the walk-in live there cheering for your like role. This is not right. Well I see that this question because I would be. This is not good to fit as a back. I think you want to blow for you all. This is a good guy you want cheering for you as a couple things that come to mind just quickly.
When I made a return to the wrestling in Phoenix in 1991 they they that the angle with Megan TA was so strong, you know the magazine cover. I cry a tear for Megan TA.
His racket teaming with dusting all that when I returned after after leaving for a time you had a wife that late wife, the pastor of cancer is 26 and I made a return to wrestling after the season away they go out.
We want to be back. I got about a second work don't know what you guess you know Lex agrees one of our top Babyface is like okay so for those who know you are presented with a belt, you whack them over the will over the noggin with a belt, kicking off the stage that began our angle and it was about 50-50. About 50% cured me about 50% cheered him and enter kinda get wind of that so then we go cable visible put you gets our top Babyface staying because you know he's the number one Babyface and so we did angle in St. Petersburg, Florida know they're in a match against is singular against the Steiner Brothers I did I do a rundown and and I go for longer but he's he just happened to move in and staying was in the way. Unfortunately, all board is so that catapulted an angle was staying and it was about 7525 and on and eventually like well yeah maybe you're right. And that's I took a little more time off came back and then made an appeal to sting with my little stinker was actually my oldest daughter Taryn at the time, nobody really kinda knew that. But if you knew that but but Hatter painted up like little stinger like like a years when your biggest fans and I like honey please. Also, when I ask you is your biggest fan. Don't say daddy and pointed me say staying but so yeah so that was that was interesting. And then one other one other quick story Kuwait speaking to the Middle East. You probably know her. Kuwait is yeah a little bit.
Yeah, not far from Turkey. I think you know I'm a great job but not for the short version of that story is I go there. I'm in the I'm in the height of my my healing here I me I am the heel number one most hated guy wrestling in America in the samples I go there and I walked out the first night and I get cheered. Unlike my little joy for real like I don't know what to do, what fortune Russ, a guy named Sgt. slaughter he walks out. We don't work hard. Okay he walks out yet. He does a print work, his mother's room right now.
He walks out and he gets booed. Mike or I was a step in the right direction because ringlike search Babyface on big egos, just follow my lead kid like okay I can do that and I followed his lead.
I got my hand raised in victory.
The fans are happy and owe a little side note, by the way, the Russian ambassador to Kuwait and his wife were sitting in the audience that night just want to make sure that the that the Russian the fake Russian was was was was cheered right so anyway so that is also well there's a couple story help me. Listen man is so good to have you on Q&A with coleslaw friend and I just appreciate you and and please you'll hug that lovely bride Tina of yours and and I look forward to seeing you again sometime soon.
Okay, it certainly travels all right.
