Tank Abbott Challenges Steiner To Fight, Talks About WCW Incident
Former WCW Superstar & MMA Legend David “Tank” Abbott was recently interviewed by the folks from Hannibal TV on a number of topics. During the interview, the former superstar from the early days of The UFC spoke about his shoot incident with Rick Steiner in WCW and more. Below are the highlights from the interview:
On his altercation with Rick Steiner on WCW Thunder: “Rick might have liked to see things his way on that, but if the barrier wasn’t there, he’d probably still be laying there looking for help. Sure it was real. But when things started happening, I didn’t want to get into trouble, so I didn’t cross the line, so to speak. And Rick might have his version of things, and I have mine. That’s usually how it works out.”
On Haku’s reputation for being a bad ass: “Yeah, well there’s a lot of that going around in the business. You have to kind of prove yourself; Brock Lesnar, I think he has proved himself. Haku, I don’t know his background. I don’t know much about him, but he is what he is.”
On challenging Rick Steiner to fight: “Like I said, I just got done with a liver transplant, but if you want to go have fun, we can fight. I don’t care. I’m down for fighting. You can bash me up, put some stitches on my face, I’d laugh about it. Knock some teeth out, they’re already knocked out.”
