"When fans come up to me and ask me when am I going back to the WWE...well, I just put it this way. I was made more for TNA. The way that the women are treated, the time for the matches. That's what I enjoy. I'm so much more happy in TNA."
- Gail Kim discussing another potentail WWE return
"Nope, nope, nope. I hope it's never offered to me. He's the man right now, that man being Randy Orton. I love to watch him wrestle. Randy and I have been tight since he was 22. If this was 10 years ago, it would make sense. But I'm 57. I don't want it offered to me because I'll do it. I'm 57, I want to stay strong and healthy."
- Diamond Dallas Page on WWE return
"Just wanted to thank everyone who supported my return. I missed you guys!! All you other negative Smarks can suck my balls! Haha!!!"
"My last few days have been pretty interesting I got question what's everybody favorite number? I'll tell you mine Sunday"
- Jimmy Wang Yang teasing Royal Rumble 2014 return
"First of all, I want people to realize that it is hard to see all the old stars come back to Hall of Fame stuff and me not be included in all these things. I accomplished more than anyone in 2 years at WWF and I was part of one of the biggest match that started the attitude era with Bret Hart vs. Steve Austin. That match changed wrestling to what it is today. There is not a peep from anyone within WWE. I don't know why they won't give me a shot in the WWE and to challenge for the WWE title. I have reached out through many different types of media and the only thing I've heard back is that they're doing okay and don't need me. I say that if you're gonna be bringing people back from the attitude era and before that then I don't understand why you wouldn't bring me back. There seems to be a black mark against me and I don't understand it."
- Ken Shamrock on potential WWE return
"From a wrestling standpoint, I'd love to have a guy like AJ Styles within the company to wrestle. I think the fans would, too. There was a tease of what could have been, but I don't think anybody saw what me and AJ Styles could do in there. On a personal level, I want AJ Styles to do whatever is best for him and his family, and if that's coming back to TNA that would be awesome. If that's working elsewhere, I completely understand that. If that will happen, I have no idea. I guess we'll find out. We all have to stay tuned and see what happens."
"I appreciate CM Punk so much more now than I ever have. He kneeled down over at the side, got completely out of the picture and allowed me to have that moment. It was incredible. It shows people what a true professional he is. He really raised himself up on my list of people that I respect."
"If the rumors are true, let me be the 1st to invite CM Punk to Impact Wrestling and get in the ring w/ me. Fans would LOVE it. Yes or no?"
- Bully Ray inviting CM Punk to join TNA
"Once again, HONORED to be included in the Mae Young tribute video tonight on Monday Night Raw. So much respect for her and proud to be in same ring."
- Bully Ray
"I think it's great for wrestling fans. As a wrestling fan and personally I am a wrestling fan. There are a lot of things that I would like to see. If I know that I can go to the WWE Network and just order something up and check out a match from back in the day that I want to see; that's awesome. So I think it's good for all of wrestling. It keeps wrestling out there. It keeps wrestling in the public's eye. And now fans have access to whatever they want to see. It's all about entertainment, guys. KISS goes up there every night; plays the same songs; Gene spits the same blood; they do the same pyro and people pay to see them. Because people love KISS. People love rock and roll; drinking whiskey; naked girls and partying. And that's the same reason why people will always love pro wrestling."
"Everybody wants to see TNA succeed. Everybody likes to sit back and whether it's bash TNA or bash the WWE; people will sit there and bash. They don't do anybody any good. Everybody is entitled to their opinion. You might not like something and that's cool. But to sit back there and bash a company for no fricking good reason when all of the wrestlers are trying to go out there every single week and do their absolute best. And all of the creative members are trying to do their absolute best in the best interest of the fans. Sometimes things don't always go the right way. Sometimes they go really great. You kind of gotta roll with the punches."
"I am the last of a dying breed. the last of the old-school pro wrestlers. I have the old-school respect for the industry. I think old school in and out of the ring. A lot of these guys coming out of wrestling school today, they ask when they’re going to be on TV. Nobody wants to pay their dues any more. ‘Pay your dues,’ there’s three words every young wrestler should have emblazoned in their forehead. Pay your dues, get out on the road, go live in your car, go eat bologna and cheese sandwiches, go struggle and make no money. When you finally get some success, you’ll appreciate it a whole lot more."
"Bully Ray vs. CM Punk would be the match. Paul Heyman has told me directly that me and Punk standing across from one another with a microphone in our hands would be deadly. Given the opportunity to have absolutely no restrictions on what we'd say and to just go at it, you'd be looking at the two guys who can spit venom better than anybody else out there in the industry. And I know we could back it up in the ring."
Earlier today, Bully Ray caught the attention of some fans by posting on Twitter about wanting CM Punk to join him in TNA. Dixie Carter has decided to add even more fuel to the fire by retweeting the message on her own social media account. That has led to some speculations that the company will pursue Punk if he breaks free from WWE.
While his on screen character has dropped down from the main event scene, rumor has it that Bully Ray has been gaining power backstage in TNA. He has a good working relationship with executive vice president of television production John Gaburick from their time together in WWE.
