This is the Truth Network welcome to another episode Q&A with me today, no stranger to the Q&A show catamount before him on the man up show hopefully go back and listen to that story of the archives of the podcast, but you'll be Re: the Turkish tornadoes with me today welcome building good to have you back in. So for our listeners out there give a little quick back story. Why would I call you. The Turkish tornado of the first six years of my life. We lived in Turkey, published and my mother was from South Carolina.
Okay so the next obvious question is how did the Turkish dad made a little southern belle from South CAC a lacking way I wouldn't get my mother wild up the Jewish mail-order bride and she quickly in a very nice southern weigh-in without many bad words correct me that I met on a cruise and that she eventually moved to Turkey and learn the language that she's going to go let me know and I cannot say about her. Okay so I quick snapshot of that self meet on the cruise fall in love.
They get married and she moved to Turkey which is pretty major step right from South Carolina to Turkey. That's a culture shock that is guessing she had lived overseas for little while in England. Local travel okay and no big deal.
At that point and Camillus growing up there yeah great influences and great friends.
We still do learn the language. This is pretty impressive and so see you there for six years.
It was there any advantage advantage of you learning just she taught you English as well and knew both languages. All mom.
We were Turkish and more. We came along we were raised in a multilanguage home no preconceived barriers to come to dinner Satan English maybe one would say in Turkish and why we picked up 100 moved onto the next phrase the next sentencing. The next word so that it was very simple and we were learning how because usually I find interesting is I did a trip to Mr. trip with my one of my daughters into multiple of my former motherland back what it was part of the former Soviet Union. But I'll never forget. I have his picture somewhere my will, my what's in the photo gallery or something little Henry. Henry 11 years old little round wire-rimmed glasses long short story is somehow we got got befriended him got conversation in a language came up that little dude 11 spoke five languages, like fluently ago like fluently and I was like blowing away just blows me away how many people overseas have been out of 30 difficulties. How many overseas no more than one language were here in America but most people your struggle to learn English from finding it out. Anyway, that's pretty impressive when you you must've been a favorite with all your friends then you were beginning to learn English class.

If I stayed in school.
They are probably what we learn English. It would've been German next branch Spanish and another offshoot of any other language that you want to, but it's amazing. So yeah so you come back to America. Six. I know from getting to know you and your lovely bride Tina, who by the way you have on the Q&A show as well so give her a heads up to let her know Q&A show with co-op, but I just love her story and I'm sure she'll have some great questions she come to America six or so and you know you're you're you're adapting now to a new culture, and I know part of the reason you came your dad was in the medical field and I do know Natalie from what you told me from others who are in the Lincolnton North Carolina where you live, you, your dad was a man of double integrity and that are not met anybody yet who did know of him or know him was nothing but good things to say about about your dad who is it, which is what product America right that the medical field. It was yeah I'm very humbled here that you think you realize you not to say that the shoulder and/or because were rowdy to tell when I'm driving around you by bring up your dad's name. Dr. Ari and all my gosh we love him so anyway that's that's pretty major.

So I do have three questions into what waited okay, I rather have boost to the ball. You know what this is, I'm highlighting you right now you decide your call go for the oddball one post if you want personal TV mail.

Check out your local listings or better yet, download the Truth Network app today your listening to the Truth Network and TruthNetwork.com past the good old days the work inside the ring were they even passed by the referee.
You know that's a really great question. I have never been at it like that before, so it is obvious you taught dip. We told only different product that is produced. In today's day and time some tremendous athletes with all the crazy things they do in the ring that I would be. You couldn't pay me enough to do half of what they do. The ground game on the part of the airshow okay on the Grob job really went off my feet. Below you'll line from a 12 foot ladder out to a table but anyway I state recently did you delete from a balcony onto someone on a table know Mike.
My prayers just increased for you, but I literally took screenshots and sent them to him text until him like a brain even harder for you now bro setback by whatever right anyway so so not so hot really assisted in many people realize, like, so expect some of the solid build his word opposite Kamal opposite ends of the building, so we never even see her ponytail we got in the ring.
Many a nights we were all back in one room all gathered together, huddled together talking overmatched we we were in separate restrooms opposite is the building. The referee would carry what we call the finish will carry it back and forth like like the agents or the promoter or the broker would give the referee all all all the finishes right how all the masses were good and right for those who still don't know of Ress blessings you know it's it's not fixed. It is predetermined. Just to clarify thank you thank you thank you okay so so so and then he'd get it carried over to the other dresser room you might have a message that you hate you know tweak this tweak that or whatever, but people realize like our matches were were improv armies spontaneous in the ring from opening bell leading up to the predetermined outcome. Okay improv 99.9% of the time. Now there were times in the ring where we maybe had I want to convey a message to our opponent or something to remotely look like were screaming at the Ralph and were actually given them some instructions that he goes over like is chewed out the other guy, but is actually like given instructions. Happily times we tread transmit a message that way so that blood blood like it was time to get no time to take it home type of the mass, dad like sometimes the agent to abuse their local promoter went to the Rodney Dangerfield like walk out in like like you to wiggle his tie.
You know like they got dog dog dog the bats so the referee we would be to do now that you know you look for the local promoter or or whatever, but all hand signals brought no earpieces. Note no studio time. You know guys back in the room with all their monitors and all that kind a high tech stuff they do now. So old school, which made it much more organic and much more fun and interesting. I think personally for the fan that's just me based on what the fans tell me okay I requested you all will wait I have seen you. Shows and the friendship you two have clear before the seven great question about okay you want to do.
Okay, these are particularly good assignment. All factual and once it was decided by menu and dust the superpowers is very few people knew that it was going to happen until you guys walked out of the okay so this is the path of the crowd was yeah it was to be a storyline that that I have to almost chuckle because you sit in the studio got my phone in front of me. You were meant to assess question. You know why Magnum TA just text me about like two minutes ago as your almost asking the question what I'm looking at my screen is like easy to shop typically called but anyway so it's funny. You're asking the question I start with part one know we were not friends. We were we were cold laborers in the ring right so we were wrestling peers in the ring.
We did not hang out with each of you think you know if you are you guys all buddies and friends and true you know like any job or any family and me.
There's a there's a clash of personalities right to not everybody loves everybody to fall along with everybody read as a sermon in there somewhere. A message in there but so, so, no we were not friends. We were not buddies. I we we we had tons of mutual respect for each other, which is why I think we had since according to the fans against such great matches, classical matches, intense matches with very similar styles of work and it and so you know it and I talk about one of the man up shows that I had him on to on the radio show in and now I can read them on on our new TV show the map TV show to which you have your list out there go to voice our TV.com or go to all nations. TV.com and start watching the TV shows totally different from the radio show anyway plug their shameless plug but anyway so so now we just you know we had just tons of respect for each other from the accident with the becoming the best of friends in and as I just mentioned he just called me know so we talk all the time to come down and in Aiken, South Carolina in September to revival were doing and shares some of the story how the Lord helped him through the tragic edge injury from a broken neck that was supposed to leave him quadriplegic to know to sustain him and give him the courage to drive the desire to continue to go on living in and do what is done which is accomplished a lot.
Beautiful family, and twins. Several children so so we are best friends now and in the accident and also one of the side caveat that had he not had that accident. I don't know that the Russian nightmare ever would've been ideal. I don't know that I would return. You become a good guy, which leads right into your second party or question about partnering up with Dusty when they propose with Jimmy Crockett at Dusty proposed that idea. Once it's settled then the reality of his accident. It was agreed that we were to tell nobody was like weeks away and I was to continually every night wrestling as a heel fulfill my obligation and just show up that night in Charlotte in the baby faced restroom in the good guy dressing room and that would be as far as I knew the first knowledge that anyone would have asked who was the quote ministry partner for Dusty on my end. I never told a soul including Ivan who was my partner right they like you can't tell anybody. So I took at the heart, and I didn't tell anyone whether Dusty Jimmy told anyone else to my knowledge they didn't know hundred percent for sure, but I do know there are a lot of people shock not only the ones in the arena. That night when I came out trailing Dusty would apply to guys in the dressing room is to rely really really that's going to be there only out for me this and told yet right up a lot of good and so he had built up a little animosity for the wear broke into wrestling with no training, no background and and catapulted your meteor could lead to a two amine event level of work and now to be the bookers partner. Boy talk about a tad more jealousy.
That didn't happen.
Wrestling with right now. Why, why don't I care for you are living right now. Right now, for the Lord and do my best to live right now to say, let me just kind of culminate the question. The answer to the question with this quick story you reference to what they call the pop with a crowd reaction at night right. What was amazing.
You know me was to see those same fans that only a month prior. And that very same building in any other county travel to who met me with throw stuff that me cost me they love to hate me like for real and made phone calls, death threats, all kinds of stuff like real come over the barricade, the ring after me to see the same fans flip like on a dime like guys were in the stadium with their shirts off doing my most muscular pose. Just use my biggest cheerleader.
After he got the 123 IBI feels like they were chanting for 10 or 15 minutes ago. Not and they hear that building is is is just surreal to think back on it and added she was kind of the cheerleader getting a bit to chat my name and flare coming out limited.
You know that all that captured on camera. The last part of that story is Tony Siobhan those wrestling historians know one of the best of the best of the best announcers out there Tony was asked and I verified this on on his podcast recently. When I asked him to Tony have always heard you were asked what was the biggest pop out of all the major matches. He is been a broadcaster for right from Hulk Hogan to AAA, Shawn Michaels, I just put on the list right and he quickly answered and said the night Nikita called her Babyface biggest pop in the history of my career is like wow that's quite a statement, from Tony Siobhan so there you go yeah I was right. So, pretty big deal so they are but I appreciate you asking those questions and hopefully those you out there listening enjoyed the answers and tell me I just appreciate your friendship and you and your lovely bride Miss T9 and can't thank you enough for sets of time aside been on the Q&A with co-op today. Anything you ever need well just look forward to seeing you again sometime here in the near future and pay. Stay safe out there.
