Here is an excerpt from his podcast (Sourced from

”I was really, really happy to see that. Teddy and I are still pretty close. We stay in touch on Facebook. We text each other around the holidays and things like that. Teddy was a guy that when I first got to WCW and was doing a lot of “batting clean up” on the announce team Teddy and I hosted a couple shows together and did a lot of work together. I’ll always remember this, on Friday afternoons was when Teddy and I were on the schedule to do wrap arounds and do whatever show we were doing together. I don’t remember which one it was because there were so many at the time. This is before I took over WCW. When I was just an announcer. We’d start usually around noon or 1 pm in the afternoon and we’d just go straight through until 5 or 6 or 7 o’clock at night. We wouldn’t stop to take a break or eat or anything like that. At the end of the night Teddy and I would go to a place just outside downtown Atlanta in Marietta called Casa De Lardo. Teddy and I would go in there during happy hour and they’d have these goldfish bowl sized margaritas and all the chips and salsa you could eat for like five bucks a gallon. We would sit there and usually I would wait for my wife to come pick me up at night. My wife would meet us there and we would hang out and Teddy became a good friend of the family. Teddy used to come to my house in Atlanta and he’d bring my son Garrett do-rags because Teddy was always wearing do-rags back in the day. It was up until Garrett was about fourteen or fifteen years old he had a whole collection of Teddy Long do-rags. We’ve got a long history and I’ve got a lot of affection for Teddy Long.”
