WWE Hall of Famer Bob Backlund recently appeared on Ring Rust Radio, which you can listen to in full below or at this link. The following are some interview highlights:
Ring Rust Radio: Obviously Darren Young getting injured throws a wrench into things for you guys right now unfortunately, but having worked with him for several months, what are your feelings about him as a performer and what type of potential do you think he has in WWE?
Ring Rust Radio: You are attempting to work with President Donald Trump. Please talk to us about that?
Ring Rust Radio: As someone with a storied history in amateur wrestling, what are your thoughts on Kurt Angle and the news that he will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame this year?
Bob Backlund: That would be fine with me. He was an Olympic champion. He did some great things in the wrestling business, and I think that would be very appropriate for him. I would love to be there for him being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame. I haven’t seen him for a long, long time though. I was sort of a manager for him back when he came on and I got to know him for a bit. He is a great wrestler. We actually did a promo and he put the crossface chicken wing on me and he was going to run with that for a while as his move.
