On his return to WWE: “It was good very.. very good. I sure appreciated the changes they made.” He is very happy that WWE stopped with the profanity, stating that the WWE toned down “the profanity by 95%” and he also noted how effective the drug testing is and “how it shows” after all these years.
On The Ultimate Warrior being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame: Although he didn’t have the chance to speak to Warrior during WrestleMania weekend, he did note that when Warrior left the stage, he noticed that “he was walking not well” and “that when he came to speak he didn’t seem right.” He felt concerned for him has he was sweating a lot and his limp became more noticeable.
On a Bruno Sammartino Memorial Battle Royal at WrestleMania 31: Bruno spoke in depth about his life-sized statue, how honored he felt seeing it for the first time. He also said as of this time Triple H nor the WWE has reached out to him about doing anything at WM31. But did note that “it would be very flattering, why would I object to it,” the door is wide open for him to be apart of next years WrestleMania.
