Piper’s Pit interview

Interview0 Comments

Beefcake is a guest on Piper’s Pit to discuss friends in the wrestling business and real fights in the ring.

You’d go in the ring and the first 30 seconds or something would be a shoot (real fight) and the winner would get a ten dollar bonus. You’d get ten extra dollars if you went over on the other guy.

DiBiase defeats Randy Savage, Ken Patera and Brutus Beefcake to claim the crown at King of the Ring 1988.

I identified with Randy a lot. We both had a lot in common, in that we were both buys who grew up in this industry whose fathers were wrestlers. I’ve always believed that for kids who that grew up in the industry that it’s not just a job, but it’s something they fell in love with and something they’ve known all their lives. There’s a certain camaraderie there. In a word, Randy was charismatic.
