I've rung my bells so many times, especially back in the day when chair shots to the head were legal. My goodness, I took so many of those.
For special wrestlers, there's somewhere else to go - as long as you're not brainwashed by that WWE mentality. There's other worlds out there; it's OK to switch around.
I've learned that I can still be loved if I perform well, and I learned that from the broken brilliance of Matt Hardy.
If Meekmahan ever came to the Hardy compound, I would tell Meekmahan, face-to-face, 'You'll fade away and classify yourself as obsolete! Obsolete!'
Early, when I first started wrestling, I wanted to be a combination of Sting and the Ultimate Warrior: The Ultimate Warrior's craziness and weird personality and Sting's coolness and the way he carried himself to the ring. But then later on, when it came to physicality and athleticism, Shawn Michaels topped the cake.
I would love to get into acting. I really enjoy acting - portraying other personalities and approaching different levels and whatnot - that would be awesome.
You can't go wrong with reading the fans and letting them tell you who they like. I think that's really paid off for me in the long run - being down to earth and just really cool with each and every fan that I meet - and they've really supported me through thick and thin.
I'm not really a popular fan of the whole Hall of Fame thing. I've had a lot of ups and downs, and I don't feel deserving a lot of times.
Edge is such a great guy.
When I was a kid, I wrestled my high school amateur wrestling in junior year.
I've got my hardcore fans, and I thank them so much for being there for me and not giving up on me.
My first match was against Razor Ramon. I lost. Come to think about it, I lost a lot back in those days.
The roots that weave up my right arm and onto my neck are my way of connecting with the earth: the earth's roots carry water like a human's veins carry blood.
Ric Flair, The Freebirds, and The Rockers were great influences in my decision to become a wrestler.
I can't wrestle a match without getting my ankles taped because they feel like they'll shatter on me.
Shawn Michaels was the guy to study and watch.
The Undertaker's beaten me down pretty bad quite a few times.
