WWE Hall of Famer Jimmy Hart was recently interviewed by Wrestling 101. Here are some highlights.

Making his WWE debut: “That was the biggest thrill of my life. I got to go to Madison Square Garden for the first ever WrestleMania to manage Greg Valentine and also King Kong Bundy. It was such a big thrill for me because if that first WrestleMania had not been successful we wouldn’t be talking now.”

The wrestlers he enjoyed managing the most: “There’s so many, where do I begin to start, Hulk Hogan, Brutus ‘The Barber’ Beefcake, The Nasty Boys, The Rougeau Brothers, Honky Tonk Man, Greg Valentine, Dino Bravo, Adrian Adonis back in the day, Earthquake, Terry and Dory Funk, when I managed the Million Dollar Man and Irwin R. Schyster, The Hart Foundation, just to mention a few, I’ve had so many.”

Fandango’s theme: “I think its great and the fans have really taken a liking to it, I wish we could have written the theme song for him, but it does kind of remind me of Disco Inferno who was in WCW and I wrote the theme song for him back then. I was lucky enough to write some of the theme songs, The Million Dollar Man’s, Money Money Money, Shawn Michaels, NWO Wolfpack, Honky Tonk Man’s theme, Dusty Rhodes American Dream, Jimmy ‘Super Fly’ Snuka, Repo Man, The Hart Foundation theme, Macho Man Randy Savage and Miss Elizabeth’s wedding song, just to mention a few and it we had a great time doing it.”

Vince McMahon as a boss: “He was great, he brought me the mega-phone back from Japan one day and told me it was something that I could use at ringside and it was great, he let me colour it up, he let me paint it up. He always let me do my own jackets, he gave me leeway on my interviews, they gave me a ton of people to manage and I’ll always be grateful to Vince McMahon for opening the door to Jimmy Hart.”

    I wish they would’ve asked him if he’d ever return to manage someone in WWE again.

  • Steve Holsten

    He should’ve talked about Memphis at least a little.
