Episode 12: Akeem, One Man Gang

December 21, 2017

Mr. George Gray was One Man Gang and Akeem. He discusses his time in WWE, facing Andre The Giant, Hulk Hogan, and more.

The twelfth episode of the School of Morton podcast co-hosted by WWE Hall of Fame Inductee Ricky Morton of the Rock n’ Roll Express is available for download right now.

George Gray on facing Hulk Hogan:

“Really you can't describe it... one of those experiences. The noise was so loud in the ring when his music hit and he actually made his entrance. The noise was just so loud it was deafening. You really couldn't even call spots in the ring, the people were so loud. The good thing with Hulk Hogan was once you had a set match a good fifteen, twenty minute set match you could take that match all around the whole circuit”.

George Gray's memories of “The Z-Man” Tom Zenk:

“Once he left the business he kind of just vanished. From what I remember of the guy he was a nice guy. He had a great look about him, to me he was a good worker in the ring.”

Ricky Morton on Tom Zenk:

“I hung out with Tom a lot. I treat people the way they treat me. Tom was always nice to me.” Morton added, “I imagine he did a lot of business for WCW because of his look.”

George Gray's memories on working against Andre the Giant:

“I went out in the ring... and this is Andre the Giant so every time he hits me and I'm flying all over the place. After the match he calls me back and sits me down and he said boss I'm already over. I came in here to get you over. So I don't want you flying around like that. I want to have a regular match with you” He concluded, “I was kinda like this is Andre the Giant, he doesn't have to do that.”
