I think wrestling fans want the truth, and that's kind of what my point is here. My father was all about wrestling. He loved wrestling. He dedicated his life to wrestling; it wasn't just about amateur wrestling, it was about pro wrestling for the whole business. It was about feeding families and making something out of nothing. Wrestling used to mean — what I always tried to get people to remember about wrestling was the honor of being a pro wrestler. There's something about that term, doing the honors for somebody, and knowing that there's somebody that is going to be the champion, and going to be the guy that carries the load for everybody, and everybody is going to profit by the fact that he's Lou Thesz, and he makes people believe that wrestling is real, that he's a real champion. It's not just the champion, there's a whole team of wrestlers that make this whole show, make the whole story, it's not just the cameraman and the referees and the people that let everybody in. It's more than that. It's people that dedicate their lives to wrestling.
