And JR let let's go back and let's talk about some of that that the big moments you handle a great moment 2007. Are you go to the hall of fame but I think the meaning of us that what fans. That go watch watch wrestling was it was a Monday night when you guys came on what -- USA network and on and off with. With two out that you guys he was three hours and it was it was just the excitement but it was it was -- just as the considering he was a story -- it lose it with a home what you guys did. How does that work and what would Jerry all of you -- as great in. -- well we kind of became that I don't know -- sounding. As grow Munson was a no no break your arm patting yourself on the back. But I think that. The King and I had had were blessed. To have wonderful chemistry. And we both had done and we enjoyed doing our job I didn't feel like a job really. Is -- adventure did. So. I think you know somebody who will you guys -- -- the Madden summerall of pro -- have to move because of Monday night primetime and -- did there were there was there was weeks. Where there was if it was a bad money not football game. That we had more young men. Watch and money not crawl in here King and I. There were watching money not the ball then it was amazing -- it was a little most phenomenal things and then the course that BC -- came along in. And put their show head to head and we had that big battle you know the money not wars -- -- gonna survive. And you know luckily enough we were we were the one that came up there and race. Quick story about did you are we're at gala issue and then Manning and -- good for renewals -- male roommate. Is -- for San Francisco 49 Monday Night Football. And -- the -- the found in my home thinking we'd see a wade -- seasoning from Cameron Crowe Lafayette Louisiana is occasionally the same. So we get gradient or buys all excited and mean good from the mine rested their ilk are caught in Nene and Eric Griffin and now we're all excited in. And we think the back guy he would because that night. He's the local rock at a main event on brawl and things like we penalties BB anything deal we wanted the ball. So all of a sudden and about and I wanna say about. 630. Before royal come -- some Eagles don't TV would jump in the call on -- -- -- -- to go to Rick solidly in place now Rick's. And and this was in the nanny so I'd just numb minded ways and means Colin zenith TV. -- -- the the last of the big miles when he got the threat screamed yeah I mean it was a brand new -- to show roof for all. You know we got just enough there the load up -- -- season -- lap on me chicken in the food and watched Raleigh about the out of my ninth elbow to -- comes in there. -- let's wash to gain in order -- note nor know DV all -- Tebow the air so you had to leave it -- there you go missile threat. So we got the remote control and -- -- batters in. Said it. Manually on USA and most people came and and is is a little. We love wade and we won't answer is the only one do good but tonight that TV says it does not golfing -- this day and roll caused the rock and don't -- -- -- remain a vehicle and every day that's again all people. If filed and to me I group in the minutes out there junkyard -- are nearly a grapple assumed destroy all of -- a book become -- But their height in JYD certainly. To me it was just a local -- earlier he was just below what was it like to see him in -- come -- -- and have. If you -- -- Nicky wanted to be one that's right I mean he was just some idea slammed -- again he gets you fired. He's he had that thing that you look for in any entertainer. Or any athlete. In you see -- connect whether their fan base. And sometimes it's hard to to define exactly how they did it is organic it was just. But for some reason. I told him one time. He was are still arrested as a villain Baghdad. And I was -- commentary and show was over. Not welcome back into the locker room area but you know -- set up -- for two hours and change. You know challengers of -- Blatter. But download -- phone call -- brother Tom hit it you know I've been without -- stay housing unit Milan they're finally got a good -- to media pressure and that's -- by hours northwest -- said that. As for a -- toward dark success who has a good reason. Had to do so but that's plagued invent those male pampered try to going to be so those suckers of the NASCAR guys use that anyhow. I walk back to block or not posting this invitation -- It just a matter of time. You -- be the biggest fan favorite biggest hero babyface. Whatever. That we've seen a long time and he -- me like I was a government real man he he wore me out. Discuss and knock -- -- and made the cuss at me. In an -- because he wanted to be a villain so Bear Bryant a San Diego change -- They lack who you are I coach you have a work ethic you're. You used YouTube Mikell forget that it -- this.

And -- you're going to be really happy we have this conversation. And he looked at a whole lot differently and then he became. I remember him Macon a million dollars in one quarter. On T shirt sales just just sell T shirts and caps -- for a quarter. A three month period. A million dollars. And then then then it got really really hot. According for -- to knock the rocking you talk about -- -- -- those three wrestle mania is. I think fifteen. Nine as a seventeen in nineteen. They had. He had a million dollar day and wrestle -- yet thirteen million dollar a year some guys say oh hardy's college football players they'll make an NFL. While they wanna get a wrestler.
