Personal Quotes (7)

I want more competition. I want more big names thrown at me. I think I've proved I have the ability to be on any card. I know I can be the first match and get the people rocking, or be the last match of the card, the main event. I think the fans feel they're getting their money's worth when they're watching me. At least thats what I hope.
I like proving myself against the bigger competition, in terms of size.
"He's helped me a lot and I've helped him a lot. He's taken me to Mexico, to ECW and evetually, into WCW. He has always stuck by me. I think the best thing we have between us is, the ability to hang together." (on his best friend, Konnan)
God has given me the blessing to perform so well in the sport I love so much, the career I belong in. Many asks if I think God appreciates what I'm doing, I tell them he obviously does if I'm still here.
"She loved me, when I had nothing. I love her!" (On his wife, Angie)
"I think he is capable of being the next Rey Mysterio but it all depends on if he wants to be. I'm on the road Saturday, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. When I go home on Wednesday I feel like I'm stepping right back into the ring." (on his son, Dominik)
"This is a sport that has been around me since I was a little baby. It's in my blood. I can feel it. I've lived it. God, I've been wrestling professionlly for nine years. I can say I'm a young vet in this business, but I still got a long way to go." (1999, 5 Minutes with WOW)
