“He’s almost like a big brother and I’m two years older than him. He’s always told me if you want something you have to go out and get it; you can’t rely on other people. He was serious about wrestling but not in an arrogant way but in an ambitious way. I came in about 1980 and the only thing you could find out about anything across the Atlantic was getting a hold of Ring magazine. When he was starting out, he was actually more of an Americanized kind of wrestler from Great Britain. I come from the more technical side.

“As a tag team, The Golden Boys, that’s when the fireworks really started for us. He was the big lad, and I was the sort of wiry character, and we really complemented each other. He’s the same person in every aspect really, from his musical tastes to his pets.

“He came in a couple of years after me and from the word go he wanted to go to America. Recently when WWE was in the UK we spent about four days together and we went up to Blackpool to reminisce. Every time I see him, it’s as if it’s Monday and six years later it’s Tuesday. I had a lot of heroes growing up in this business, but to me he’s my hero.”
