Virgil’s first interview on The Mayhem can now be heard for FREE in Real Audio.

Here are some of the highlights from the interview provided by Mayhem listener, Daniel1991.
Mosh & Blade welcomed Virgil to The Mayhem. The former bodyguard of “The Million Dollar Man” Ted DiBiase is very much looking forward to the Dream Reunion II convention in Kokomo, IN on October 6th, and having an opportunity to meet/talk with the fans about his career in both World Wrestling Entertainment & World Championship Wrestling. He enjoys spending time with those who followed him for a long time, and for him, it’s great to bring back some great memories.
Virgil’s favorite times in World Wrestling Entertainment include teaming up with “The Million Dollar Man” Ted DiBiase against WWE Hall Of Famer, “The American Dream” Dusty Rhodes & his son, Dustin “Black Reign” Rhodes. He credits the fans to help him “get away” from Ted & “see the light,” and having one of his most career-defining victories at SummerSlam ’91, where he captured the Million Dollar Title & defeated “The Million Dollar Man” in the center of the ring at Madison Square Garden.

Mosh & Blade asked what sort of impact did “Rowdy” Rowdy Piper have on his career. Virgil said that Piper is one of the best worker in the history of this business, and he was very blessed to be taken under his wing around the time of WrestleMania VIII, when Piper was in his corner against

When he left the WWE & headed to WCW, he welcomed the opportunity, because some of his friends were already down there (including Ted, along with Hulk Hogan & several others). Being an outsider & part of the nWO was exciting for him — “the biggest thing in the world at the time”). Virgil also feels that the nWO could have lasted longer if it the members included only: Hogan, Kevin Nash, Scott Hall, Sean Waltman, Ted, himself, & Eric Bischoff.

Virgil also looks back fondly at his time in the West Texas Rednecks (Curt Hennig, brothers Barry/Kendall Windham, & Bobby Duncum, Jr.) as “Curly Bill.” He says that it could of been a lot more fun if they were given the opportunity to keep it running longer.
Virgil joined Blade & Mosh in his analysis of who is the best man in the history of the business: Andre The Giant, Paul “The Big Show” Paul Wight, The Great Khali, & The Giant Gonzales. Some names obviously don’t belong in this category, so you have to hear Virgil’s thoughts on who outrates who.
And in closing, on the topic of the WWE Wellness Policy & if the business is safer now than before (when he was working full-time in the business), Virgil wants to make it abundantly clear that the decision to take drugs or steroids lies up to the particular person, and that no one can make you do what you don’t want to do — “it is a person’s own individual choice that they make. You have to watch what you take. Everyone makes their own choice.” He commends the WWE in instituting their current policy.
*All of this goodness & more can be found in this rare 30+ minute interview on The Mayhem: including Virgil’s uncensored takes on what was his best memory was of working with “The Million Dollar Man” Ted DiBiase, being “Vince” in WCW, why he’s glad that World Championship Wrestling outdrew ABC’s Monday Night Football, why it’s essential to realize why Kendall Windham is not the son of Barry Windham, & the importance of being a student of the game & knowing the business when competing in it.
Virgil will be joined along with WWE Hall Of Famers Jerry “The King” Lawler, “The Mouth Of The South” Jimmy Hart, & over 25 other featured superstars (including The Nasty Boys, The Rock ‘N’ Roll Express, & TNA’s Jim Cornette) at the Dream Reunion II convention/wrestling event on Saturday, October 6th in Kokomo, IN.

It has been announced that wrestling superstar Diamond Dallas Page will be making his return to the ring for one night as professional wrestling makes its long awaited return to The Mullins Center. The event is set to take place on Friday, October 5th at 8PM ET, as Full Throttle Energy Drink presents Pro Wrestling Live. “The master of the Diamond Cutter” & three-time WCW World Heavyweight Champion, DDP will be in the main event that evening. His opponent will be one of his long time rivals. That night, Diamond Dallas Page will go one-on-one with Buff Bagwell! In addition, three other matches have been announced as well:

The Mullins Center in Amherst is going to get hardcore & see what extreme really means, as Brother Runt (formerly known as Spike Dudley) will go one-on-one with “The Impact Player” Justin Credible in an Amherst Street Fight. That same night, Amherst is going to see some hot & sexy wrestling diva’s square off in the ring, as the lovely Talia Madison will take on “The Canadian Angel” Angel Williams. And finally, the action will take to the sky as Billy Kidman will go toe-to-toe with “Primetime” Elix Skipper in high-flying, cruiserweight action. More matches to be announced in the days ahead.

Furthermore, Prince Nana has contacted the promoters at Prestige Entertainment, and told them that he is issuing an open challenge to anybody who thinks they can compete with The Embassy of Hurricane John Walters and The Outcast Killaz (Oman Tortuga & Diablo Santiago). Who will answer this challenge & when? Stay tuned to find out.

On a side note, Baldo Bomb (Matt Bloom) & D’Lo Brown have informed us that they will be unable to make this event as their Japanese commitments will not allow them to be in the United States at the time of the show.

We have replaced them with two huge wrestling stars. The first one was Buff Bagwell, who will be competing against DDP on the event, and the other is a very “special” replacement. Just added to this extravaganza is former WWE superstar, U-Gene Dinsmore.
