"Hulk Hogan left. Rock left. Steve Austin left. Shawn Michaels left. Theses were huge stars! Superstars come and go. The show must go on! You wait on the future.Don't over think my last Tweet. Human emotions are involved and they're always unpredictable. We should all be able to understand that."
- Road Dogg discusses the departure of CM Punk from WWE
"To see CM Punk, I just think that he was backed into a corner, he got a little frustrated and he took his ball and went home. I think one of two things will happen. I think Vince McMahon will fly out to Chicago or wherever he is, work some Jedi mind trick and convince him to come back, or maybe he will think through the process - and he's got a lot of years left in the tank - and never leave money on the table when you can go ahead and make that money."
- Steve Austin discussing the backstage heat situation in WWE
"He quit [the WWE]? Really? No, he hasn't said a word to me [about fighting in the UFC]. He hasn't reached out to me. I was with him all night in Chicago, he never said a word about it. He just showed up. We talked about a lot of things, fighting was not one of them. I like him, he's a great guy. It's a little late to get into the game, but who knows if he can fight? I don't know. We'll see what happens, but I like him a lot. He's a nice guy."
- Dana White on CM Punk quitting WWE and possibly joining UFC
"No, I don't think this is an elaborate, TV storyline but instead it's all about a highly motivated, talented wrestler who, at times, feeds off the chip on his shoulder, which is not a bad thing, who has hit the wall and isn't enjoying what once was his primary professional focus....dare say his life."
- Jim Ross discusses CM Punk leaving WWE
"So Punk allegedly walked out & quit WWE. Interesting. It's impossible 2 understand the toll that job can have on you-unless you've lived it. A 'screw you' from Punk? NO. Punk's gotta prioritize his own sanity & health. Sometimes WWE isn't conducive to those two things. From my experience- When you're in constant physical pain, frustrated the majority of the time, & resent what u love, things have to change."
- Matt Hardy defending CM Punk for leaving WWE
"My info on CM Punk: I do know from sources that at Monday Night Raw in CLE there was heated exchange backstage between Punk & staff. Topic - concussion. Punk was heard arguing with staff saying 'I passed all your damn concussion test' and 'I'm not going out and telling fans that BS'"
- Casey Kulas, an ESPN employee in Cleveland
Since he has one of the most impressive physiques in professional wrestling, an industry filled with well toned bodies, Scott Steiner has been asked for years about his workout program, so the former WCW star released a fitness DVD, which teaches beginning, intermediate and advanced level people.
