-- Michael McGillicutty, the real life son of Curt Hennig, tweeted the following today: Unfortunate milestone on this sad day. 10 yrs already since I lost my best friend. And I still miss him just as much today. Love You Dad. My Dad lives thru me everyday. I swear on the moon & stars that my mark will be made in this business. The #Hennig name will endure forever. Today I turn the corner. Ive endured pain, true, but its my time now. Im at a different level then all others. Physically and mentally. Nothing can stop me. No one will slow me down. I own my life. I own my future. I own the ring. Im the Boss. #Hennig
-- Eric Bischoff tweeted the following today: "Truly miss Curt Hennig. Had the pleasure of working with him in his early career in AWA through our time in WCW. One of a kind."
-- Jim Ross posted the following on his blog at JRSBARBQ.com: "Can't help but think about Curt Henning aka Mr. Perfect today on the anniversary of his untimely passing. "Perfecto' was as good a natural athlete as I've ever been around in the wrestling biz. Curt starting so young and wrestling so much likely contributed to his lingering back injuries as back ailments are horrific for any performer in the sports entertainment biz. Curt was also one of the funniest guys that I ever worked with on commentary and had legit, natural timing much like a guy he watched while growing up, Bobby 'The Brain' Heenan. Curt truly loved life and some could argue that he loved it a little too much at times. Nonetheless I value the relationship that we had and the fun doing WWE voice overs at the Stamford, Ct studios back in the day. Chief Jay Strongbow nicknamed Curt "Dennis the Menace" because of his mischievous demeanor at times. Curt was one of my favorite wrestlers and when he was healthy he could hang with anyone. I am optimistic that his son Joe also know as Michael McGillicutty will be a main event level talent before all is said and done. I've seen Joe wrestle a great deal especially down in NXT and he has every thing he needs to be special. It's all about timing and right place at the right time but I'm confident that Joe will persevere and get to the next level and it could happen in 2013. I'd be surprised if it doesn't."
