His thoughts on his fellow inductees in this year's WWE Hall of Fame class: "All of those guys (Bruno Sammartino, Bob Backlund, Mick Foley, Trish Stratus, and Donald Trump) have their own special unique talent. They all brought something different to the game. I'm honored to be sitting out there watching these guys and get that honor. I am looking forward to seeing Bruno Sammartino finally taking that step into immortality. I think it is something that is long overdue. It’s going to be a great night any way you look at it."

The build-up to WrestleMania XXIX: "WrestleMania always starts the day after the previous WrestleMania. The build-up has been no different as far as the promotion goes, and you have to notice that. The fans are going to show up and it is going to be a great night of wrestling and a great night of entertainment."

His mission statement for his Reality of Wrestling promotion in Houston, TX: "I'm trying to create an environment for the young people that want to get into this business and see what it is really all about from a true perspective."
