On Losing at Slammiversary: "It's a question I've asked myself and thrown out a few times here and there. I've wondered what (the TNA Booking Team's) intentions are. When I was inducted into the Hall of Fame, I asked Dixie if she was putting me out to pasture and she said "absolutely not." I'm giving you a straight up answer: It (all of these actions) makes me wonder."
On Rumors of Facing Undertaker Back at WM 27: "Over the last few years those rumors have gotten stronger. I do an annual contract every year and the rumors start right around January. The year that they did the (black and white) vignette, I had nothing to do with it and I had no conversations with the WWE at that time. Shortly afterward there were conversations (with WWE) just by happenstance but nothing official."
Was He Close to Going to WWE When WCW Closed?: "No…I've always described that day as being surreal and a very tough thing to swallow. I had 18 months left on my (WCW) contract that AOL had to honor, and there was never any conversation at that time. The first time I talked to them was 5 years later. Vince McMahon called me and we talked for a week, and it was very, very close. That was the time that I decided to make one final run and I decided to make it with TNA."
