Interview highlights courtesy of Paterson, MNM’s associate producer & official correspondent:
His reaction to the passing of “The Macho Man” Randy Savage & how he always saw himself identifying with Randy throughout his career: “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. He’ll be very missed, and it’s sad.”
What he will personally & professionally remember the most about Randy, both inside & outside the ring: “It was his professionalism. He was all business. He would laugh, and cut up, and have fun too, but for the most part, he was a consummate pro. He took his job & his work very seriously, and I always admired that. He was incredibly dedicated.”
