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 I met on a cruise.

Mom got tired of me telling everybody that she was a mail-order bride and the quickly corrected me for my lack of humor that she was not a mail-order bride.

I am not amused, it which you knew at that point you crossed the line so the best thing you can do is practice your Olympic backstroke and try to get out of it.

It was good.

Thankfully, having parents who were from two different countries taught me Turkish and English at the same time so I was fluent never known not known to languages will hear. So here is what is funny about what what is it that she was a mail order bride was that, is that MLE or MA, IL mail order bride will release you since past I would ask her what you would get the I am not amused look.

I got there but part been.

I was just starting kindergarten will be left so I cannot read or write Turkish very well, but you can speak of the drawbacks of going to school there and leaving because the country study teach you English literally in kindergarten and its 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.

My parents you know itself asking about that story is is just verified and I told the story and on another show about. I was doing a a missions trip in Moldova over private Bureau near the former Soviet Union and I met Ukraine yeah yeah I met this 11-year-old little guy Henry the wire-rimmed round wire rim glasses and your point.

So the most unique things I've ever seen stuff that maybe you're looking for, but don't know where to find it.

I sure you will find it on heal me.

Sites go check that out name see B. D so yummy you got a question or two for me on Q&A with the law. I do usually put me on the spot. Now stress for three days over the slept very little on our I know that you were involved in multiple tech teams and even premium was very different in preparation first of the 22 versus the three okay and that you felt like you had to get everybody involved or were there constraints friendly promoters, and even maybe the other team like a I'm injured, so also does not take box this evening. Okay, can you explain the difference between the two.

Three. Tags great great great question. The fact that you got singles tag six man. I was even involved in eight-man matches right and in 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 bunch of toys and Don could know it all and eventually, power tooth week to be with 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 or even the 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 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 doesn't yeah yeah so great question like like really great question for sure. One more I do, I got we got time for one more question.

If you were here you will most of the baby faces you came out and you were expecting blues and ransom raving from the fans when there is ever an option arm was there ever an instance where they switched on you to call off, it was a huge announcement like no man up men's conference. MorningStar ministries portal South Carolina August 25-27. You think that's always a way. No, not too soon to sign up.

What a lineup of this we have the benefit of David All-Star NBA All-Star how would his speaking world wrestling champion flex mover Chris Rick Joyner Delta force commander Gen. Gen. Jerry Boyd tired.

Yours truly, the lawful renowned evangelist Frank Shelton.

Register today is live start that told one of his like if you were the bad guy right and you walk in the hearing for your role. This is not right. Well actually the question because I would be. This is not good as a bag. I you want to blow for all this is a good guy you want cheering for you. There's 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 Magnum TA was so strong, you know the magazine cover. I cry a tear for Magnum TA his racket teaming with dusting all that when I returned after after leaving for a time you had a wife that lay wife. The pastor of cancer at age 26. I made a return to wrestling after the season away they go out we want to be back. I got stuck at work don't know what you guess you know Lex agrees one of our top baby faces like okay so for those who know you are presented with a belt, you walk them over the 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 that we go cable visible put you gets our top baby face staying because you know he's the number one baby faces 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 it 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 Karen at the time, nobody really kinda knew that. But if you knew that but but Hatter painted up like little stinger like okay here's what 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 far short version of that story is I go there. I'm in the I'm in the height of my my healing here. I mean, I am the heel number one most hated guy wrestling in America in the samples I go there and I walk out the first night and I get cheered like little joy for real I'm like I don't know what to do, what fortune was a guy named Sgt. slaughter he walks out toward okay. He walks out. Yeah you doesn't print work, his mother's room right now. He walks out and he gets booed. Mike Ryan was a step in the right direction because ringlike search to be a brave face on it goes as follow my lead kid like okay I can do that and I followed his lead. I got my hand raised in victory.

The fans were happy and all 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.
