Honkytonk Man quote, courtesy of Kayfabe Wrestling Radio
"You know, there's been other guys; if Tito was here right now, I'd tell him, I hope he's listening. Tito Santana; Oh, you've got to pull my feet, Jimmy Hart's gotta hit me with a megaphone, we've got to knock the referee down. Oh, come on, I took that flying burrito elbow and never said a word about it, 1-2-3. But when it come time for those guys to do the favor, it was like, 'Naw. Can we do this? Can we do that?' There was a couple of times that went on. Yeah, you know, I never ever said anything about any of it until that came up with the Macho Man thing, and it nothing to do with Randy; Randy and I talked about it. It was all about the television thing with 35 million people."
Tito didn't want to lose clean to HTM? Surprising.
HTM should realize after all his years in the business that the gimmick heel is supposed to cheat to win, and also supposed to lose clean when it's time. The best gimmick heel should never win clean, unless the match is portrayed as a mismatch. With that said, I doubt Tito Santana liked losing clean because it always seemed like he was being screwed over. I can't remember too many clean losses, I'm sure there were a lot, but he always seemed to be getting screwed in his matches.
Honky is working 24 hours a day, so I would not put too much taught to it. I have no idea what he is talking about.
