The Brooklyn Brawler recently appeared on Prime Time Wrestling with Sean Mooney to talk about various topics including a story about Vince McMahon calling him and asking for a big favor.
‘”How ya doing pal it’s Vince.’”
“I go, ‘yeah Vince whatever you need.’”
“He goes, ‘I need you to take care of this.’”
“And I said, ‘well what do you mean?’”
“He goes, ‘I need you to fly to Calgary and wrestle Bret Hart in the main event.’ He was the world champion at the time. He goes, ‘as Doink [the Clown].’ That’s what he told me, I never had paint on my face I never did the Doink character or nothing.”
“I said, ‘Vince I have no problem wrestling Bret I’ve wrestled him before, but it’s the paint job.’”
“This is all in one day. fly to Stamford go to the studio get the little lesson, give me a picture, give me all the paints, then fly to Cleveland, go to baggage claim, get the hand-off of the suit, go back onto the plane, get into Calgary, you gain three hours in Calgary — that’s what made this possible because you got the hour difference, the time difference.”
