“You know Rowdy Roddy Piper once told me … once he came to like SmackDown or something [and] I just don’t understand how he pronounced it … I did something and I was playing with a very, very big crowd or a crowd or something like that. He came back and saw me, he was like ‘You went to Babyface too much’ or something. [H]These are like “don’t even think about them” [the fans]. He says, “You see people’s shoes.” Basically, you focus on your opponent. You’re there to hurt him. “
“If you look … Piper’s entrance [from WCW StarrCade ’96 against Hollywood Hogan]… Hogan’s eyes have been closed since the moment he walked through the curtain. And just like that, it sounded like this death. Although he was in his 50s with artificial buttocks? When you see it and you see the entrance you like “this guy is going to war”
