South is a guest on The Art of Wrestling to discuss wrestling in the 80’s and almost quitting wrestling training early on.
I was bleeding from my nose, I ripped my blue jeans, I threw up. The old guys got a hold of me and they tied me up and left me in a corner. they were laughing. They didn’t want you in the business. Back then the older guys thought, “If I let this kid in… he’s gonna take my spot.” I crawled out, jumped in my old trans am and left. I said I’d never go back and I hate professional wrestling. The next day I got off work and I went straight back.
