• Demolition Says They Need To Buy Tickets To Attend The WWE Hall Of Fame
During a recent interview with Wrestlinginc, former WWF World Tag Team Champions Demolition (Ax & Smash) talked about their era, the WWE Hall of Fame, Legion Of Doom & more.
Below are the highlights:
On working with some of the greatest tag teams of all time:
Smash: “We’re lucky enough to wrestle the greatest tag teams ever and now that we’re a little bit older, you look back at some of the matches we had and everything, we were very lucky to be able to work with those guys. It was a great life
When people come up to you and say, ‘Hey, I remember that match at the Sky Dome!’ It makes you feel good because they felt good.”
Ax: “It wasn’t a job, it was getting paid to go out, and perform, and have fun, and you have fond memories. You try to pick out one or two and it’s just impossible.”
On if they were a copy of The Legion Of Doom:
Ax: “[They’re] good friends of ours. It’s sad about Hawk [passing], but we see Animal around these events quite often.”
Smash: “I don’t think we were [a copy]. We looked different, we wrestled different than they were.
They were a great tag team, and like Ax was saying, very good friends of ours. We do miss Hawk a lot, too.”
On a possible WWE Hall of Fame induction:
Ax: “We just have to figure out – we have to make enough money to buy a ticket. We can’t get in without buying a ticket.”
Smash: “You never know what’s going to happen.”
