-On Not Beating Hogan for the WWF World Title: "That's what they should have done. And instead of making hundreds of millions of dollars they could have made thousands of millions of dollars if they had done that. We talked about it some and that's what they should have done ... I guess for some reason because [Hulk] was 6'5" and weighed 320 pounds that he was this big huge thing that nobody should beat him for the belt. If they would have said "Let's go out there, Paul, and you fight for your life and Terry, you go out there and you fight for your life," you can bet your ass I would have fought. I guarantee ... I would have won and [Hulk] knows it."

-On Today's Product: "It's been so downgraded. You look at boxing, you look at MMA fighting, that's what people are watching. It's more believable. That's what people want to see. They don't want to see that phoney baloney out there. They want to see something real. They want to see somebody lose a tooth, have a black eye."

-On Working with Hulk Hogan: "It worked out because the heel ran the show. I ran the matches, and I worked off of [Hulk Hogan]. [Hogan did] his best to work off of me because [he'd] never be able to keep up with me. I did that with Hogan. That's why we worked together good. We [were] two Florida boys. I wasn't buddy-buddy with him. I didn't weigh 300 pounds but I weighed 240 pounds and I was a badass and he wasn't."

-On the Art of Being a Great Wrestler: "I still call it a sport, because it is a sport. To me it takes years and years and years and you'll never master it. As long as you have an opponent, you have to work around that opponent. And you'll never master it. Never. You can be good at it, you can be great at it like I was. Or you can be good at it and okay with it. Whatever."
