I’ve wrestled with both through the years and the contributions both gentleman have gave this business is second to none. I mean, Mick Foley has put his body on the line. … More than anybody I know in this business and his passion, his intelligence is incredible. And same goes for Mr. Bob Backlund. Not only you know pro wrestling ranks, amateur as well, tremendous wrestler, all around great guy. Both individuals, great human beings to be around and really they’re more than deserving of being hall of famers.” Stro is celebrating his birthday this weekend. While in WCW as The Maestro, he recalls a story of one of his past birthdays at the WCW Nitro Grill: “It was good timing. A lot of the guys came down, the WCW roster came down for it and it was really cool. The food was really good at the time, so and you know Bob Ryder and Jeremy Borash did a WCW Live show remote from my birthday party there. So it was really cool.” You can listen to the whole interview at the link below: http://www.cyinterview.com/2013/01/pro-wrestlings-the-stro-formerly-the-maestro-of-world-championship-wrestling-the-big-guy-talks-about-his-birthday-wrestling-and-the-induction-of-mick-foley-and-bob-backlund-into-the-wwe/ – Chris Yandek is the editor of CYInterview (CYInterview.com), a media outlet featuring interviews with high profile individuals.
