"Orndorff: "I wasn't a very good politican. I wonder if I should have played the game" in reference to money & Vince McMahon... after revealing he just found out he has cancer. This is almost too intense; studio on the verge of tears here."
Didn't say what type of cancer but hoping Paul has a full recovery.
More on this story....
As noted earlier here on the website, Paul Orndorff announced on The Busted Open radio show that heíd just been diagnosed with cancer.
Orndorff was asked about never being WWF Champion, responding, ďI was a rebel. Iím proud and Iím not proud of that. I let my work do my talking. I wasnít a very good politician. I said what I thought. I did what I thought was right for me and my family. Were they the right thing? I donít know. Were they the wrong thing? I donít know. Am I rich? Hell no. I have cancer right now. I wished I had saved some of my moneyÖbut thatís just the way it is.Ē
When asked to elaborate, Orndorff said, ďI donít know, Iím going to the doctors and theyíre doing things and I brought that up not for sympathy but because I donít want it. I just found out. And Iím sitting here telling you all this stuff because I wonder if maybe I should have just played the game.
