Kamala Says Racism and Sexual Abuse Dominated WWE, Talks McMahon, Undertaker, More



- The following was sent in:

Former WWE Superstar Kamala sat down with the Voice of Choice Bruce Wirt and Nemar Wells in one of the most hard-hitting interviews in the history of the VOC Nation Radio Network. Kamala talked about racism in the WWF, Vince McMahon, his hatred for wrestling, and more.

The entire interview can be heard at this link on the “VOC Nation Wrestling Vault” show.

Here are some highlights of the interview:

On working with Andre the Giant: “Andre wasn’t the friendly guy that he appeared to be. He was real temperamental and had a nasty attitude. When I first started working with him, he called me a (derogatory) name in the ring and I beat him up. After that, I never had another problem with him. A lot of (top guys had problems with Andre too). He would just go out and mop the floor with people. He treated (wrestlers) nasty, and the fans too. Andre would do it just about every night. Guys would watch through the curtain to see what he was going to do.”

On working with Hulk Hogan: “We had a lot of good matches and drew a lot of fans all over. Working with Hogan was easy and a treat. I loved working with him.”

On racism in the WWE: “In Summerslam 92, I had one of my biggest matches against the Undertaker. He made a half million dollars and I made 13 (thousand). There was a lot of racism in the WWE. I remember so many times when I was there, I would get there early and find me a nice dressing room; the agents would (kick me out and) let (the white stars) have the dressing room. When I went out to the ring, I was a superstar; backstage I was a nothing.”

On the Undertaker: “I love the Undertaker. If I see him on TV, I’ll stop and watch. I love his gimmick, and I like him. He’s a respectable man and I got along real good with him, and I love his work.”

On retirement and regrets: “I don’t miss it. I wish I had made money where I could have retired and enjoyed life. I worked so hard all those years and didn’t make any money. If I had made money, I would have done the right thing and invested it. I don’t watch wrestling today. If my friends are watching it, I’ll get up and leave. It brings back bad memories.”

On Vince McMahon: “Vince McMahon has certain people that he will pay. If you get along with Vince, do him sexual favors, you’ll get along good with him. But if you just (do your job and) mind your own business, then he doesn’t like you for some reason. There was a lot of men with men in those days and even men with boys. I know a lot of guys that (failed drug tests) and it was documented that they passed, and I know what they did.”

    If the accusations led to Kamala being taken to court would he have a leg to stand on

    So Cena really blows?

    I mean, this has to be up there as one of the strangest interviews given, just for the weight of his accusations.

    O_O Da fudge?

    Sorry, but the last answer made that the only response I could give. I mean, Andre being a bit nasty I could buy it makes Hogan’s fear about Andre “going into business for himself” (which REALLY means kicking his ass all over the Silverdome) make more sense to me. I can buy into racism, though I would like to say that his “big” match with Taker was only a little over 3 minutes and I HIGHLY doubt many people were clamouring for it, especially over Hart-Bulldog, but I can still buy the racism. When you start saying men were with other men OR EVEN BOYS and were constantly screwing Vince (So… Vince really did screw Bret? Who knew) you lose me…

    Must be talking about good old Pat Paterson.

  7. T says:

    You never really hear former wrestlers say bad things about Taker.

    I believe the racism comments as look at what Vince did with black wrestlers. He made Tony Atlas into Saba Simba, he had Akeem the African Dream. He turned WCW champ Ron Simmons into Farroq. The DX parody of the Nation. Slick Jive Soul Bro opening, Cryme Time…etc
