Billy also discusses some of the health setbacks he’s endured through the years from working in the business. Hear Billy Jack Haynes side of the story on this fascinating edition of Rasslin Memories online.

    As a former “jobber” for twenty-five years, I was well aware of the
    risk of injury, associated with professional wrestling. Anyone with half a brain
    new the possibility of broken bones, torn muscles, and concussions, could happen
    each time we stepped in the ring. Each time we “bladed”, we know that we could
    contract a blood borne disease e.i. Hepatitis C, down the road.
    For Haynes to blame the WWF for not educating wrestlers of the dangers associated
    with the nature of the business is bullshit and utterly ridiculous. Just another ex-athlete
    trying make excuses and capitalize on a multi-million dollar company.
    I would love to return as a guest with Glen and George, and state my case.

    Thank you for this interesting interview. Billy Jack Haynes was a favorite of mine back in the old school days of professional wrestling. Sadly the years does not seems to have treated him well and he sounds like he has lost a few cards out of his deck.
