>> jimmy: thank you, buddy. i'm happy you're here. i'm thankful you're here. we got a lot to talk about, "wwe tough enough." but i want to talk, about -- it's sad. very sad. randy "macho man" savage -- >> man. >> jimmy: -- passed away. >> i was sad to hear about that guy going. >> jimmy: look at this guy. how cool is this guy? >> he was one of the greatest of all time and such an intense individual. >> jimmy: yeah. >> and any time, you know, whether he was working as a good guy or as a bad guy, he was always -- he always had that intensity, that focus, that voice. and he's just -- he just was like a magnet in the ring. i was a huge fan of his. and he was very influential to a lot of guys. >> jimmy: absolutely, right? >> and to myself, as well, so i was sorry -- sorry to hear that guy go. >> jimmy: he was probably in the class before you. >> he was a little bit ahead of me in age. and so, you know, we crossed paths a few times but never really were in the same territory. >> did you ever wrestle? >> i wrestled that guy -- we talked about this earlier and i was trying to like -- "did i wrestle 'macho man'?" and it's like, when you get hit in the head with steel chairs for a living, sometimes you forget about things.
[ laughter ] i remember back in the day, we used to do tv papers, down in orlando, florida and i actually wrestled "macho man" for about -- probably it was a -- three, four, five-minute match. and of course, i lost. and you know -- >> jimmy: it was "macho man." >> yeah, it was the "macho man," though, so -- but anyway, i got in the ring with him one time but, you know, to work a program and an angle with that guy, to get into something really entrenched and long-term -- that would've been fantastic, but it never happened. >> jimmy: yeah. we're gonna miss him. >> yeah. we're gonna miss him a lot, but i wasn't where i needed to be at the time to go toe to toe with that guy. but he no doubt left his mark on the business. >> jimmy: yeah, completely, absolutely. we gotta talk but "wwe tough enough." the big finale is coming up. >> the big finale. >> jimmy: yeah. now, explain to everyone what the show is. >> man, "tough enough" is a show where we took 14 men and women. we took nine guys and five women and we put them in a big-ass mansion. and yeah, 72,000 square foot mansion. you know, when i grew up -- or when i came up in the business, you know, i was starving and
eating potatoes and getting my ass kicked to try to get in the business, so we put these kids in a mansion. and then i've got -- >> jimmy: probably a good opportunity there, yeah. >> yeah, big bill demott, big booker t and trish stratus, if they're listening to me, thank you so much. they did a great job. we put these kids in a 20 by 20 foot ring, showed them what it took to be a wwe superstar. some of them were green as grass, as miss usa was. never been in a ring before in her life. some of the kids had eight, nine, ten years experience. well, what we did was show them what it takes to be successful in wwe. each week, i get my bottom three in the ring and go through my elimination process. and the winner of the contest gets a contract with wwe. so this could be the start of something big for one of these kids. >> jimmy: oh, really? >> so i make it real on them. i make it rough on them. the name of the show is "tough enough." and if they're gonna go through me, i'm gonna make sure they pay their dues on their way up to getting that contract. >> jimmy: that's what i'm talking about, so yeah -- >> and that's the bottom line -- >> audience: 'cause "stone cold" said so! >> thank you very much. >> jimmy: i mean, people get bloody. they get their teeth knocked out and all this stuff.
