Ultimate Warrior
"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
April 10, 2014
Ultimate Warrior
"He seemed good, he seemed happy for sure. I had a sense his health wasn't great. He seemed a little frail. He seemed a little less indestructible than he used to be. I don't think it would be a surprise to know he took steroids for a long time and I don't know if he ever stopped." - Bret Hart discusses steroid use by the Ultimate Warrior
April 10, 2014

March 25, 2014
Bret Hart
"When you look at it closely, CM Punk's burned out. He's always given 100 percent in all his matches, and delivered some of the best pay-per-view matches in the past 10 years. And it's not easy when there are legends who only work part-time, and guys like Punk and Daniel Bryan do all the work, and watch someone like Brock Lesnar check out Wrestling i n c.walk in and take those big matches and big paydays without having to be on the road all the time. I think that had a lot to do with his decision, and rightfully so. One of Vince McMahon's favorite sayings is, 'Life's not fair.' I don't see Punk being a factor at WrestleMania, but he still has a lot of greatness left in him. As a fan, I hope he comes back, and as a wrestler, I have a lot of respect for him, too." - Bret Hart talks about CM Punk leaving WWE
March 21, 2014
Bret Hart
"I hope they give Daniel Bryan his chance to win the belt at WrestleMania. He earned it a long time ago, but it wouldn't surprise me like Charlie Brown with the football if they pull it away from him one last time. I really hope they give him his proper run, as he hasn't had the opportunity yet to be the champion he deserves to be. Hopefully this year at WrestleMania, it will be a crowning achievement for Daniel Bryan." - Bret Hart speculating that WWE might not give Daniel Bryan the heavyweight title at Wrestlemania 30
March 21, 2014
Bret Hart

March 21, 2014
Fabulous Moolah
Years before the Bret Hart screwjob in Montreal, Vince McMahon pulled the same trick on Wendi Richter.

Along with the referee, Moolah changed the ending and took the belt off of Richter, whom the legendary performer trained.

Sami Zayn
"I want to prove that I am the best NXT has to offer. I want to prove that to Triple H, Shawn Michaels and my boyhood hero, Bret Hart, who will be in attendance that night. I want to make John Cena, the guy at the top of our industry, see that Sami Zayn is going to be the guy out of NXT to keep your eye on. I want to prove it to the fans who've believed in me all along. I want to prove to the people that never believed that I even belonged here, just how wrong they are. Above all else, I not only want to prove it to Cesaro, I need to prove it to myself." - Sami Zayn talks about wanting to be the next big WWE star
