Mike Rotunda Looks Back On Competing In His First WrestleMania

WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2024 inductee Mike Rotunda recently appeared on an episode of Stories With Brisco & Bradshaw, where he talked about a number of topics including The U.S. Express competing in their first WrestleMania:

Rotunda said, “It was exciting … I started [in the business] at the end of 1981 and now it’s 1984 and I’m in New York because at the time … there was like, the Carolinas, the Gagnes out in Minneapolis, and then New York were the three big territories. I don’t know how I got there, but that was a quick run to get there.”

On the WWE schedule he had during the first WrestleMania:

“They used to take a little break around WrestleMania time, like a week before and a week after. We flew up that morning, did WrestleMania … [then] I ran to the airport and caught a flight home.”
