Bruno Sammartino
"I must tell you that I commented that night when he did come on stage with his two beautiful little girls looking so proud, as he was as well, but when they left and went to the back, I noticed it even more... I felt that he wasn't walking well and I thought that was due to some injuries that caused that. I also noticed that when he came to speak, that he seemed, I don't want to say out of breath, but he was sweating and all that. I didn't think too much of it on the night and thought maybe he was nervous or whatever, but I just didn't feel like there was something wrong with him and I had no idea whatsoever as to what was to follow, that was quite a shock." - Bruno Sammartino discusses Ultimate Warrior condition before death

Here I am on the side of the road. Here comes the Hardy Boyz! Flying down the highway. I get a phone call, 'Maria, was that you on the side of the road?' Yeah, it was me. Matt was on the phone. Matt's like, 'We're coming to get ya!' I'm like, 'Ok good!' Here comes Matt, picks me up, and we keep going.

"TNA called me twice this year, I think they're a great company but I'm loving my time in ROH and I'm definitely happy with my fiancée. Who knows if that will ever change, but I wish TNA all the best in the world, I think the girls there are tremendous."

I'm an admirer of his work, I think what he has done with so many guys and throughout ECW was incredible. When I was in OVW I just watched him as he helped CM Punk every day, Punk was already incredible but then Paul Heyman kind of pushed him over the edge and gave him that opportunity on ECW to be who he is today."
