Arda Ocal of The Score Television Network spoke with former WWE Superstar “The Native American” Tatanka while he was in Toronto to promote his upcoming appearances for CWI Wrestling (www.cwiwrestling.com). Highlights from the interview are as follows:
Looking back on the two-year undefeated streak and why it didn’t lead to something bigger than it did:
“It did lead to a big thing, it lead up to Yokozuna, lead up to Ludvig Borga. Ludvig Borga was the one who actually defeated me. But Ludvig Borga, (WWE) had big plans for him, they really wanted to push him to the sky. They really wanted to do some real big things with Ludvig Borga, but it just never caught with him.”
Does Tatanka think about the WWE Hall of Fame, has his name come up at all and who you would he like to induct him?
“Ricky The Dragon Steamboat would be awesome, and the reason for that is because when I started the business, I was in the North Carolinas and we just hit it off. Im one of those guys that beleive that you never become successful by yourself.”
* Whether or not there was ever any other consideration for a character for Chris Chavis before Tatanka was chosen.
* His Wrestlemania IX match with Shawn Michaels in 1993 and having the honour of “opening WrestleMania.”
