His feelings being at WrestleMania 8, how he told Vince McMahon he didn't want to work for the company after that show and what the original plan was for him leading up to Mania: "My original plan was to only do TV's and PPV's until WrestleMania and than I would become the Champion at WrestleMania and than I was gonna do house shows after WrestleMania. But the situation with Warrior being fired at SummerSlam changed the whole thing. I don't remember Papa Shango missing his cue - I just remember things not being laid out very well."
The atmosphere behind the curtain at SummerSlam '91 with the Ultimate Warrior leaving: "I think everybody was aware of it but I don't think anybody cared. Things like that happened so often that nobody ever cared. People might have cared about it - but it's not anyone's business, so nobody cared"
Being a champion and carrying the title: "When I first started the business, I was told I would never be champion. The belt was always put on people who could draw. So I never expected to become a 15-time champion or anything...(the championship) just became an extra thing in your bag to carry around... you're never in the business to become champion, you're in the business to do your part - whatever the promoter tells you your part is."
His ankle injury - why it happened, the rehab and the entire situation: "It was a PPV. What they did was put that (move) in there as a cue for the camera to go back and show the 'mystery partner'. I wasn't comfortable doing that move (from the second ropes) but I tried and sometimes we make mistakes"
