Who was your favourite wrestler as a kid?
Who has been your favourite opponent?
Being a trainer as well as a former pro wrestler, who was the most successful wrestlers you trained?
What do you think of the current state of professional wrestling?
I sincerely believe we need to dial it back a notch. Everything and I mean everything has been done to death, way too much bad comedy and we are becoming a parody of ourselves.
Who would be your dream opponent past or present?
I would love to have had the chance to wrestle Buddy Rogers since he was my childhood idol.
How about gotten rich.
There have been several over the years. I have been blessed to work with great promoters like Jim Crockett and Jim Barnett, Great bookers like Leo Garabaldi, Eddie Graham and George Scott. I shared the microphone with the Mt. Rushmore of announcers Gordon Solie, Bob Caudle, Jim Ross and Lance Russell.
What does Wrestling mean to you?
If people have never seen a Les Thatcher match before what should they expect when they do see one?
Chances are they never will as I can’t seem to find any old matches out there, but if you were to find one it would be the classic old school baby face style.
SOMEONE STOP THE DAMN MATCH!!
