Bully Ray Discusses His Character, Admiration For Hogan, Mick Foley's Hall Of Fame Induction

Bully Ray

The UK Sun has a new Q&A online with Bully Ray. Below are the highlights:

His character:

“You guys in the press like to use words like heel, babyface, good guy and bad guy. I’m not a heel and I’m not a babyface. I’m not a good guy and I’m not a bad guy. I’m me. Whatever me is at the time is what I am.

Admiration for Hulk Hogan:

“Hulk Hogan paved the way for everybody. There’s a respect level that comes with working with Hulk Hogan. He’s The Beatles of our business.

“I don’t care if you think he’s not the ‘greatest pro wrestler’ in the world. Who gives a s*** if he can’t reverse an armbar? You didn’t pay money to see Hulk Hogan reverse armbars or do arm drags. You paid to be entertained by him, to see him Hulk up, do a big boot and a legdrop.

“I’m a student of my game and respect my business. Of course I have to enjoy working next to him. It’s like a guy like Matthew Broderick, who has done it all, saying that he didn’t really enjoy working with Robert De Niro. He’s not starstruck by De Niro, but he’s enjoying it.”

Mick Foley and his WWE Hall of Fame induction:

“What I appreciate about Mick is obviously the hardcore style, the fact that he is a fellow New Yorker and the fact that he came through ECW. But what I appreciate about him the most is that he proved that a guy like me, who wasn’t exactly on the cover of muscle and fitness, could make it.

“I’ve kind of re-invented myself with my look now, and whenever I see Mick I remind him of just how great I look, how muscular I am and that I have abs now. And Mick’s still old and washed up and tubby!

“No, I have tons of respect for Mick. Mick has always been a big supporter of myself and the Dudley Boys. I’m glad to see him getting the recognition that he deserves — in New York.
