For nearly three decades Marcus “Buff” Bagwell has entertained wrestling fans. I remember first watching him as The Handsome Stranger in Global Wrestling Federation. Shortly after that he’d end up in WCW and his career really took off.

In 1998 after joining the nWo, I had a chance to meet Bagwell, who was wrestling as Buff Bagwell. Now, nearly 20 years later we’ve reconnected, this time for the My 1-2-3 Cents Podcast. We talk about his career and the decision to retire in 2018. Bagwell also explains why he was cautioned about using the moniker “Buff”.

Here’s the interview I did with Bagwell in Alabama back in ’98. My interview with Bobby Heenan and Ray Traylor are included too.
