“I thought I had the best partner in the world! My own brother, but, your too damn selfish! Like I’ve said all along, your ego is too big! You only worry about yourself Bret! You don’t care about me… I don’t care about anybody…I had the best opportunity of my life Bret, and you stripped it away from me. You took it away from me Bret cuz you’re too selfish! All you had to do was just tag me. My hand was there. Just tag me. I knew your leg was bad. I was aware of that, just tag me! But you’re too selfish!!! All you cared about was trying to put your sharpshooter on. I could have won the match. I don’t need you with a bad leg in there doing it. You’re too selfish and that’s why you’re sitting there with a bad leg and that’s why I kicked your leg out of your…leg. “

“I’d like fans to remember me as a guy who would go out and entertain them, give them quality matches, and not just the same old garbage every week.”

“How do I want [my fans] to remember me? I want them to remember me as a guy who was diverse in his talents, could fight anybody and have a good match – whether it was Undertaker, or Vader. These big giant guys…I remember thinking, how can I have a good match with them? How am I going to go up there and convince these people that I’ve actually got a chance of winning? [Then] coming back and saying, wow, those people were really entertained. They really thought that I had a chance… When you go out there and even beat them [and] people believe it…that’s unbelievable, you know?
