• “He gave me a break for the big time” – WWF Legend Says He’s Grateful For What Vince McMahon Did For Him
Legendary Old School WWF Manager ‘The Mouth of the South’ Jimmy Hart was recently interviewed on an episode of the ‘MackMania’ podcast, where they talked about long-time WWF/WWE promoter Vince McMahon, who recently retired from all his positions within the company, after the ongoing hush money scandal accusations started.
Here’s what Jimmy had to say about his experience with Vince:
“Jimmy Hart is ‘Jimmy Hart’ because of Vince McMahon. He put food on our table for a long, long, long time. He gave me a break for the big time – up in New York City – I’ll always be grateful for that.
He was always uptempo. His suits were pressed. His tie was in place. His hair was styled out. He was always a picture of success. It made you feel like you wanted to do better. To me – I don’t know about everyone else – to me, he was great. He always encouraged me. He always gave me a chance.
He gave me King Kong Bundy, Adrian Adonis, Dino Bravo, The Hart Foundation, The Honky Tonk Man, The Wrestling Referee Danny Davis, Terry Funk, Dory Funk, The Nasty Boys – which I’m still debating on that one – no, I love The Nasty Boys. The Rougeau Brothers. He let me do my music!
Vince calls me up and says ‘Jimmy, give me a track for Dusty Rhodes,’ and I’d say ok, and I’d take it to Dusty, and Dusty would say ‘put a cowbell on it!’ ‘I want some singers on it!’ ‘I want some horns on it!’ I said ‘Dusty, why don’t you just write it yourself!’.
He opened the door for me to be Jimmy Hart. Whatever Jimmy Hart’s turned out to be, he opened the door for me on that, and I’m so grateful.”
Jimmy Hart was a manager on World Wrestling Federation TV from 1985 until 1993 and then went to Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling with his close personal friend Hulk Hogan, where Jimmy worked as an on-screen manager again from 1994 till 2001.
