Lacey Von Erich
"My mom called to tell me my Uncle Jimbo, aka Ultimate Warrior, died. He was my dad's best friend, and a big part of our childhood. Rest in peace." - Lacey Von Erich discusses the death of Ultimate Warrior, who worked with her father Kerry Von Erich in WCCW

Buff Bagwell
"When I first heard the news of the Ultimate Warrior's passing - from my oldest son - my first thoughts were of his precious daughters, and how their father - whose love for them was clear - had been taken away from them far to early in their lives. My second thought was about the foolish tweet I sent out during Warrior's Hall of Fame induction speech - and how badly I wish I could have taken those words back. Maybe they seemed harmless at the time, but in retrospect, the fact that my final words about Warrior were negative ones has had me feeling pretty bad these last 24 hours. I did not dislike Warrior. I got along fine with him in 1996, and years later, during a 'Legends Rountable' focusing on 'Heatseekers', I was good-naturedly kidded by my fellow Roundtable guests for having nothing negative to say about Warrior, Paul Heyman or Buff Bagwell." - Mick Foley talks about his relationship with Ultimate Warrior

Stephanie McMahon
Since he fully understands that Father Time is undefeated, Vince McMahon is slowly preparing to hand over WWE, and that contingency plan is on display at Wrestlemania 30 weekend. Triple H and Stephanie McMahon have been doing a lot of the work in producing the pay per view. Vince is still obviously involved, but not as much as in years past.

Jim Ross
"Vince doesn't go to ball games, golf, or any of that rich-guy stuff. He just works, and nobody works harder than him. He's always had that unrelenting work ethic, and I think a lot of it stems from his father. His father was such an iconic figure in the wrestling business. Vince idolized his father from afar, and he wanted to do anything he could to draw favor from his dad. When his dad reluctantly allowed Vince to get into the wrestling business, that overwhelming work ethic kicked in." - Jim Ross praising Vince McMahon

Jim Ross
While it makes sense on a lot of levels, Jim Ross recently revealed that he was heavily criticized by fans through Twitter for suggesting that WWE allow Cody Hall to induct his father, Scott Hall, into the hall of fame during Wrestlemania 30 weekend.

March 13, 2014

Kassius Ohno

"I don't think they give a s--t about (indies) buzz. They only care about their own buzz, which makes sense. You can't solely cater to the niche fan base — it's a tricky demographic to deal with. But you can see somebody get over with those fans and think maybe they can do it in WWE, too. And they see someone who has the passion to chase the dream, traveling around the world. If you have passion, if you're a good performer, those are two of the most important things in wrestling, and they're things you can't manufacture. Some people are naturals. Take Big E Langston; he has such a perfect match of athleticism and charisma, and he looks like an action figure."
