• WrestleMania Main Eventer Could Show Up In WWE Again
WWE Hall of Famer Mr. T recently spoke to WrestlingInc and revealed that he is currently still in a business relationship with WWE, which allows them to sell his merchandise, including bringing out several Mattel Elite action figures of him.
The former Hollywood Superstar (Rocky III, …) thinks he might show up on WWE TV in some way, shape or form in the future.
He main evented the inaugural WrestleMania in 1985, that saw him teaming up with Hulk Hogan to defeat the team of ‘Rowdy’ Roddy Piper & ‘Mr. Wonderful’ Paul Orndorff.
Here’s what Mr. T had to say:
“I still got stuff going on with WWE. I got Mr. T dolls and stuff like that. They selling the goods and stuff like that.
What I tell people is I never considered myself a Hollywood celebrity. I don’t act. I react. I’m just a tough guy that has the opportunity to play some roles in Hollywood.
I’m not any different. I was never a guy that made the guest appearances in wrestling. That’s who I am. I love wrestling.
In high school, I played football. I liked the tough sports. I like man-to-man stuff. Throwing the guy, flipping the guy, running through and driving.
I wasn’t a wussy when it came to that. I can take a punch. I can give it, and that’s what it’s about. Maybe I was more of a wrestler than an actor, more tough guy than I was an actor so that’s the part I like.
That’s why I will still go to wrestling matches, still go to boxing matches. That’s what I love. I can make a guest appearance here and there.
Right now, I got some toys and dolls with wrestling. I still watch on TV. I might appear somewhere here and there.
Never know what Vince has in mind because he’s always thinking of something, but my job is to be ready when they call, so that’s what I’ve been doing.
I’ve been training, getting ready. So when they call me, I’ll be ready.”
