Chief Jay Strongbow was the guest on In Your Head Wrestling Radio hosted by Jack E. Jones, Oneinchbiceps and Barbie Richards at http://www.inyourheadonline.com
Jack, OIB and Barbie Richards are joined by Chief Jay Strongbow.
Chief Jay Strongbow will be appearing for Promo last on June 4th and 5th in Atlanta, GA. Strongbow doesn’t do a lot of fan fest appearances. He has only done three of four of them.
For all your information on the event please visit:
He says that Georgia is a little slower than everywhere else in the Northeast. He likes that it is quiet there as compared to other places. Strongbow likes being recognized when people ask for his autograph.
He talks about Duke of Dorchester and says that he is a classic wrestler and their will be only one of him.
Jack brings up a Shark Cage match with Doug Kent in Detroit. Strongbow didn’t like working in a small cage. He doesn’t know who came up with the idea and he didn’t want to do it at first but did it anyway.
Billy Graham is brought up and Strongbow says that he was in “never land” and wasn’t one of his favorites. Strongbow didn’t appreciate Graham saying he was in the twilight of his career and let him know in the ring. Strongbow also believes that Graham was all talk.
Strongbow says that you can talk about Lou Albano for a month. Strongbow says that Albano was a character and was great for interviews. Strongbow liked their matches with The Valiant Brothers. Also liked working with Mr. Fuji and Saito.
OIB asks if Strongbow has any stories about Andre the Giant. Strongbow says he has a lot but doesn’t want to say them on the air. OIB promises to never tell anyone! Strongbow says that Andre was a very good friend of his. Strongbow begins to tell a story about Las Vegas. Andre had a room in the tower and was going overseas. Andre gave Strongbow his room in the tower but Strongbow didn’t want to go. Strongbow eventually went and their was a big bed. Strongbow laid down and went to the bathroom and found out that the toilet hadn’t been flushed in three weeks!
Jack asks about the differences between Vince McMahon Sr. and Vince McMahon Jr. Strongbow says that the elderly McMahon was really good to work for because he never pushed anything. Strongbow says that his son came in with marketing and started to expand. Strongbow didn’t believe it was going to happen, but it did. Strongbow puts McMahon over as a very smart man.
Strongbow helped about 80% of the wrestlers when he was working as an agent in WWF. Strongbow helped Bret Hart and his brother. He also helped Jack Briscoe, Hulk Hogan and Randy Savage to name a few. Strongbow says that Hogan says his “Hulk Up” was like his War Dance.
Strongbow thought the Hall of Fame was a great moment for him. He was inducted by his good friend Gorilla Monsoon. He doesn’t have many stories about Gorilla other than he knows that Gorilla can eat ice cream and cake!
Jack brings up the angle with Tatanka. Strongbow thinks he came up with the headdress idea to give Tatanka. Strongbow says Tatanka was a nice guy but he didn’t know enough about the business.
Strongbow would like to see the fans of Atlanta. He will most likely bring his headdress.
