WWE Hall of Famer Jimmy Hart and one-half of the Nasty Boys Brian Knobbs joined The Roman Show to promote the upcoming Legends of Wrestling show at the Miccosukee Gaming and Resort in Miami, FL, on January 23, 2016. During the interview, Knobbs commented on if The Nasty Boys should be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.
“We are hoping hopefully this coming year. It’s up to Vince McMahon. WWE really jumped our career after that match at Wrestlemania 7,” said Knobbs.
Knobbs also talked about wrestling as the masked Terrorist at the start of his career in the mid-1980s for the American Wrestling Association.
“They needed someone to tag with Colonel Debeers and we were going up against Francis and Jimmy Snuka Superfly and they wanted someone that he was suppose to be from South Africa doing his thing. We needed someone in there. So they took me young upcoming wrestler and they put a mask on this lovely face as the Terrorist. The first time I wrestled in Denver and later in San Francisco,” said Knobbs.
“The first time we did it I came back. I couldn’t even breath. I went over to my good mentor friend Curt Hennig, Mr. Perfect, and said please can you take the mask off. ‘I can’t breath. He tied it in a knot. They had to take the mask off. I almost passed out.”
