Virgil Comments On AEW Cameo, Return Of Million Dollar Title, nWo Memories

Michael Jones, better known to pro wrestling fans as Virgil, or even Vincent, recently spoke with Joey G. of Wrestling Headlines to promote his new “Meat Sauce Madness” mobile video game.

During the interview, the pro wrestling veteran spoke about the Million Dollar Championship returning in WWE NXT, his memories of being in the nWo in WCW, his cameo appearance in AEW and more.

Featured below are some of the highlights from the discussion.

On if he is excited to see the Million Dollar Championship returning to WWE NXT: “EXCITING? Not really… I mean those guys are trying to recapture something that without me does not stand legitimately on its own… Since Ted has been carrying my bags since 89 and he is trying to mooch the spot light but without me he is just regular.”

On his AEW cameo appearance and if he sees himself making more wrestling appearances in the future: “TK (tony Khan ) and I go way back… He is a Soul Train fan and he loves the meatsauce… Since I have been working with Young Christopher Jericho since he was nine I was always a mentor to him… Really enjoyed seeing guys like Dean, Arn, Dustin, Cody, DDP, Janela, and I always wanted to feud with Omega and Hangman, which we can get to sooner rather than later…it was great to see the company thriving.”

On the “Lonely Virgil” memes that became a trend back in 2012: “LOVED being Lonely… I was never lonely lonely just lonely… It was totally fine for me to be in that spot as the Slave and it really forced me to be a survivor of the business… Never drank, never did drugs, so i survived the dark times and now more than ever their is a RAY OF LIGHT on me.”

On if he has any fond memories from his nWo days in WCW: “Well when I was brought in Hogan was all over me and loved my aura… Loved being with Macho and Curt… Scott was fine he was a little bit of a donkey butt but we were fine.”
