And a very good Saturday evening to you all
whatever you might be doing on this great
I say, I bake twice a month for them…
Bannana bread one week…
and, some other time a German Apple Coffee Cake.
Sometimes cookies, and the next time
one of them needs a German Chocolate Cake…
And Johnny from England wants some Scotch Short Bread,
because I’m Scotch, he knows that I know how to make it…
So, I’ve got to make Scotch Short Bread for Johnny Eagles…
But they’re all a bunch of spoiled little boys, to me…
Me? Me, I’m Mom to them…
They like the goodies!
You know, a lot of people say that wrestling is fixed, but…
I’ll tell you one thing… All they gotta do is just get banged up against these ropes
and these ring posts a little bit, they’ll know it isn’t.
When guys go to the hospital with their head laid open, and a broken arms, like that,
there’s nothing fake about that!
I really, really enjoy It, I really do!
It’s a tough life, very tough life.
I’m gonna retire within about the next two years…
It’s hard to get up, you know, night after night,
You know, to get up for a big match, it’s hard to psych yourself up…
…and to hold down the schedule that I hold down, and to pump the iron,
lift weights like I lift weights…
You know, with cauliflower ears, and a scarred up head, and bad knees
and broken bones, and, you know…
Cause after all that stuff happens, then Arthritis sets in, and I’m not ready for it!
Get that fat pig outta there!
We’re wrestling champions, and that’s exactly what we’re gonna do,
we’re gonna defend these titles anytime, anywhere, and Tuesday night they’re on the line!
So whichever team wants to put their name on the line, our names are there already,
you just put your names under it, and we’ll step in that Squared Circle with you on Tuesday night,
and we’ll get it on, and the best team will win!
Frank! I just wanna tell the people something. I’ve been receiving cards and letters,
all over the state of Oregon, Washington…
They say, “Jesse pose! Jesse pose!”
“You got a new image, but you still gotta pose!”
So I’m gonna pose, Frank…
I don’t think it’s fake, uh, it’s all too rassling I think, you know?
Good sports. All good sportsmanship.
From what I can see, I’ve been coming to them for the last 30 years, I guess…
