Words are cheap; promises are forever.

"I'm deeply saddened at the sudden passing of Jim Hellwig, the Ultimate Warrior. I wish I'd been kinder to him in the last momnets that we had this past weekend at Wrestlemania 30. We did cross paths once or twice, but we were all so busy. I never went out of my way to see him, but if I could, I'd tell him he looked good. He looked content, and he looked like he'd finally found happiness within his children and his wife. He never ever harmed me, nor did we really work with one another. I wish we had. His final ring promo breaks my heart. I have many fond memories of times we shared, only now do they pile up in my head. I'd also tell him that he was right. He never was such a bad guy. My thoughts are with his wife and children. I never thought his time would be so short. I know one thing. I will never forget him." - Bret Hart discusses the death of Ultimate Warrior

I've said for years even when I was with WWE that I want TNA to do well, I never saw TNA as the enemy – that would be ridiculous, I love professional wrestling. Part of the reason why I chose to go to TNA was because it's not good for the fans or for the industry when there is just one conglomerate and nowhere else to go. The most prosperous and entertaining time in our business was during the Monday Night Wars – you had two companies that were fairly evenly matched, both with top tier stars, and they were battling with each other for ratings. That meant everything had to be fresh, everything had to be edgy and everyone really had to rack their brain to come up with exciting storylines, all of the guys had to work really hard and there were 12 million people a week tuning into wrestling. Now there is less than half that, if you're in the wrestling industry now in the States there are only two places to go centrally, WWE or TNA. I would like to try and help facilitate, creating a situation where the WWE has to recognize TNA as a potential competitor and if you know like I do, WWE holds all the marbles then for the artists, the talent it's not good for our business, competition is good for business." - MVP discusses competition within the business

"You know, well I'd like to think so. I like the guy. I think he's has around a million with life experiences cause his path to get into the business is certainly…unique. To say the least. I always thought he was a real sharp guy. He had a great head for the business. So if he's given the opportunity to take over a leadership role or if he has the mindset to become a leader in that locker room; then he should be able to help him. He's a good man. I'm glad that he's back in the loop and I think that he has a lot to offer. He's just a really cool guy. And I'm happy for him." - Jim Ross discusses MVP
