Bockwinkel sells like crazy..  "Nick got a good payday. I moved up a few notches in the fans’ minds. That night, Nick gave me the last backdrop I ever took. I almost broke my neck. You should see the tape. Rick said after the matches, “I thought you were finished.” He was scared.  But wow, in two years I’d really come a long way - from jobbing to Nick in 1984 to a 20-minute Broadway the summer of 1986. I had no idea I was THAT good or was it just Nick’s job to make me look good? I felt like a promoter’s son."
