Personal Quote:

(Speaking of the voice of the Alliance, the WCW/ECW entity that invaded WWF in 2001) "I understand it's being spread. It's like manure, you just spread it out and everything grows." See more »


Almost walked out on his current job as play-by-play announcer with the WWE after they asked him to become "J.R." and wear a cowboy hat. He said that cowboys were from Texas, not Oklahoma, and didn't feel it was appropriate. After much persuasion, he conceded to Vince McMahon's demands and gave in. He is now widely-recognized as the most popular broadcaster in the history of the company. See more »
