Paul Orndorff Discusses How He Got Started in Pro Wrestling, Working Japan, and More
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 02.01.2014



- Under The Mat with host Evan "Tech" Prout recently interviewed WWE Hall of Famer Paul Orndorff. Below are some highlights:

Orndorff on today's wrestling product: "I don't watch it; I haven't watched it in over 20 years you know why... because it's the only show in town, that's why I don't watch it anymore, that's why no one watches it anymore because of the people running it and it's no talent like it used to. It's no more places for them to go, nowhere for them to learn."

Orndorff on what got him into the business: "I was drafted by the New Orleans Saints and quite frankly I got worn out playing football, I got tired of it. With wrestling there were so many variables that could go with it so many directions you could go. Every night it was different every night it was a different town 7 nights a week and twice on Sunday."

His thoughts on working in Japan: "Yeah it's different there; they are so used to going out there and going at it. That's why I like it over there because of my style. I can go any style hook up, lock up, take you down, and do all kinds of amateur moves."
