WWE News: Konnan recalls his days as WWE wrestler Max Moon
Sep 27, 2013 - 03:15 PM


AAA legend Konnan spoke with the WWE website regarding his role as the short-lived Max Moon character in the '90s and how he ended up signing with the company. "Pat Patterson called me on New Year’s Eve and told me to come there," Konnan recalled. "He said, 'It doesn’t hurt. We’ll pick you up in a limo.' Ole Anderson was rude and very rough to deal with. Pat just seemed very nice and I had never been in a limo. The same day I got to Stamford, Conn., Paul Bearer was also there waiting. I had an incredible conversation with Vince [McMahon]. He was very engaging and charming. He was awesome. I’ll never forget this. He was so sure of himself. He said, 'It doesn’t matter if you sign with us now. Sooner or later, you will sign up with us.' That type of bravado and being so sure in the way he said it, that sold me."

Konnan also discussed his in-ring struggles. "Because I knew English, Vince assumed I knew how to wrestle American style," he said. "He put me in the ring with some American wrestlers, but I couldn’t have good matches, so he let me bring wrestlers from Mexico to wrestle with me. They were even going to call me Latin Fury. I didn’t care what they were going to call me. I just thought it was a really cool looking outfit. It was very futuristic. But what ended up happening was I started to get tired of lugging all these boxes to WWE events. At the same time, business was starting to pick up for me in Mexico." Read the full interview at WWE.com

Powell's POV: Konnan noted that Vince McMahon spent $13,000 on the Max Moon costume. Damn! He also spoke about starring in a Mexican soap opera at the time he was working for WWE, the tag team he had issues with during his WWE run, and the story of Scott Hall confessing to sabotaging him by talking to Vince McMahon about him behind his back. It's a fun interview and includes an artist's drawing of the mask that he eventually wore. Konnan currently co-hosts the MLW Podcast with Court Bauer and Mister Saint Laurent. I was on the show recently and you can check it out along with all of their shows at MLW.com.
