Almost 40 years after winning the WWWF World Heavyweight Title, Bob Backlund is still as relevant today as he ever was, as he is arguably the most entertaining character on current RAW programming! In this exclusive part 1 interview of The Swerve, the 2-time Federation Champ tackles such topics as: his relationship with Vince McMahon Sr., who tried to talk Vince Sr. out of not putting the belt on him in ’78, politics in the territory days, drinking beer in the 8th grade, following Bruno, his relationship with the great Arnold Skaaland, and how he did everything in his power to stay out of the locker room! A great interview from a great one. Truly one of the iconic treasures of the wrestling business!
