Wrestling Star Sam Houston On Losing It All, Surviving
Former WWE and WCW star Sam Houston opens up about all his life challenges and career highlights in an over 50 minute conversation with Chris Yandek of CYInterview.com. Sam reveals that he recently lost everything in the Louisiana floods and has moved temporarily to Las Vegas to live with his half brother Jake Roberts.
“I reached the point to where I could’ve either broke and thrown it all way or but I chose to keep moving forward and not let it push me down. I mean I ain’t got nothing. I got my pickup truck and I got a few things, that’s what I got and I keep moving forward.”
Reflecting on some career moments:
“Barry [Darsow] came to me at the CAC’s and he told me, he said, ‘Sam,’ He goes, ‘All of my best matches in my career were with you.’ You know, you just don’t know how that makes a guy feel you know. And when somebody like Curt Henning tells me, Curt told me, he said he had his best match in his life was with Bret Hart. His second best was Nick Bockwinkel. And he goes, ‘And you’re the third.’ You know, what a feather, man, in my cap.”
