“I tell that to guys now. There are guys in this era right here and now that could get over back in mine and there are guys in mine that could definitely get over in this one here. It’s not the gimmick. It’s not the storyline because our storyline’s are simple and it not that a lot of individuals didn’t have a lot of gimmicks but it’s the person behind it. It is that person that works his ass off every night in the ring and stays consistent and stays true to himself. Stone Cold Steve Austin and my son Wes have become very good friends and Stone Cold’s advice to Wes every time he talks to him is be yourself. Stay true to yourself and I couldn’t say it any better but coming from Stone Cold to Wes means a hell of a lot more than me telling my son the same thing.”

Brisco’s advice to Roman Reigns,

“If he just stays himself and doesn’t change (the people are going to hate him and the people are going to love him) but look at John Cena. He is one of the most revered guys but in the beginning people loved and then hated and still they love / hate him, but he is still one of the most revered guys there is. Stay true to yourself and don’t get off course and don’t let people talk you into changing, don’t let the fans convince you that you need to change. Just be yourself and pretty soon they will see this is who you are. That is my advice to these young guys and if you believe in something than make it yours and make it work.”

His favorite Mr McMahon segment,

“One that I don’t see a lot but one that everybody tells me is their favorite is that time that The Stooges and Vince went to Texas in search of Stone Cold Steve Austin. Vince didn’t know this but I had got with the waitress and told her to do this one thing and he (Vince) kind of flipped. We went and we searched all the honky tonks and searched all the gun shops and there was no Stone Cold. Finally we got hungry and went to a steakhouse and Vince wanted a nice big steak. So we find this nice little joint on the corner. He was pissing the waitress off legitimately even though she knew we were coming but she kept getting pissed at Vince because here is this Yankee telling them how to prepare a barbeque.

“He’d say they don’t have any real steaks so just bring him their best brisket. So she was getting hot and finally I said something to her, she got pissed and (I had told her to do this) she took a big bowl of baked beans and poured it in on my cowboy hat and course that splashed on his probably $7,000 Armani suit and he got all pissed off. But we had a ball doing it. There were flubs and of course I’d get a little tongue tied backstage and Pat with his English not being the best to Vince’s liking it always got a little crazy but we had so much fun with the three of us.”
