Honky Tonk Man Cuts an “Old School” Promo on Randy Savage, Says Today’s Wrestling Product is a “Stunt Man Act” (Video)

file_179543_10_honkyBill Apter talks to wrestling legend The Honky Tonk Man in the video below, at the most recent Legends of the Ring show. HTM noted that he’s trying to get out of in-ring performing, because of the way today’s wrestlers perform. 

“I’m trying to transition away from in-ring wrestling because it’s not for me anymore. The young kids do things that death-defying. They do stunt man acts. I’m a wrestler, not a stunt man. That’s not how we should do it. A wrestling event should be like any other movie; it starts off and builds up, and finally we have the big blow-off at the end. That’s the way it should be. And for some reason, every match tries to out-do the other, and I’m in the main event and it’s like ‘what’s this 35-year veteran going to do now?” 

Honky also cuts an “old school” promo on Randy Savage at the request of Apter, who he also put over, saying they made a lot of money together and really enjoyed the work they put out over the years.  

KILLAM: HTM should be getting out of in-ring wrestling because he’s 61-years-old, not because the style has changed.
