In generalities, thank God people are nipping at my heels, talking about me, and jealous. Sometimes people celebrate my failures. It’s just a different take on things.

I ran into him in Orlando, walked right up to him, offered to shake his hand – he wouldn’t shake my hand, didn’t want to go outside. He just sat in his chair and shook for 30 minutes scared to death. That has got to tell you something about his character. He can say whatever he wants. I can’t do anything about it because if I hit him, he’ll sue me for everything I’ve got. That’s his deal. That’s what makes him happy. He lives in misery. – Hulk Hogan

There’s a lot of gimmick infringement out there, but that’s cool. It’s a compliment. But it all started right when I first came into the Garden.
