Brian Knobbs was a recent guest on WINCLY. During the interview, he discussed the fan that attacked Bret Hart at the Hall of Fame ceremony and whether he sees The Nasty Boys being inducted into the Hall of Fame. Here are the highlights:
On Bret Being Attacked:
That just shows you how idiotic some fans can be. One time, me and Jerry Sags ran in during a cage match between Sgt. Slaughter and the Ultimate Warrior to gang up on Warrior. Then a fan jumped in and started attacking us. We beat the hell out of him.
That just shows you how much of a class act Bret Hart is and the whole Hart family that he got back up to finish off the speech and didn’t let that bother him.
On Getting Praise From Bret & How Much It Meant To Him:
It was such an honor because it was that match at WrestleMania VII that really stamped the Nasty Boys legacy…. It turned out to be one of the greatest matches and Bret even said that was one of the best tag team matches he and Jim ever had.
To me, him saying that is all I need. I don’t need anybody else critiquing the match or anything like that. For a guy like Bret Hart telling me that him and Jim really loved that match made me and Sags feel really good.
On Harlem Heat:
They were young when we were wrestling them and we had a good run with them for over a year, year-and-a-half. It was good to see them go in as well because they’ve been friends with us for a long, long time. So, two tag teams that helped us and build out Nasty Boys legacy were the Hart Foundation and Harlem Heat.
On The Nasty Boys In The Hall Of Fame:
People say it every year, and when it comes, it will be the crowning of the icing on the cake for our legacy that we finally made it to the WWE HOF and all of the hard work we did for the last 34 years paid off.
