"For me it was really unique, maybe more unique than for anybody else. Whenever I would go to Stamford, I didn't stay at a hotel. I just went straight out to Vince's house, Vince and Linda's home. Shane was there at the time. He was in high school. I had a big brother, little brother relationship with him. That's the way that I would describe it. I was very close to all of them."
"I remember taking long walks on the property out there with Vince. I remember talking about that even beyond the Ultimate Warrior's time as the champion or the thing of today that years down the road that he would still be Ultimate Warrior as a persona and me as a person would still be a part of this family. It was very close and very intimate. I don't think that it's like that at all today and I don't remember anybody else being given that courtesy or allowed that openness to their family as I was back then."
