His classic series with Cactus Jack and if they were given more leniency to be more stiff and hard hitting: "You know what, first of all, Cactus Jack; I call him Jack (Mick Foley), he's a big strong guy and the reality of it and I'd say this to his face; he's a good friend of mine, a great friend of mine, but he's not the most athletic guy in the world and not the strongest guy in the world. He doesn't spend much time in the gym and is not the big, muscled up guy, but, literally, he's a genius in the ring. I mean some of the stuff he came up with, in that period and year after year throughout WCW and WWE, what he's come up with; I mean, any guy that can make a living putting a sock on his hand, in my mind is pretty good and to get over with it like he did with it. He's definitely a Hall of Famer, and I'm sure he'll get his due soon. But, we did have some great matches, and it was a different era and we did what we wanted to do. I don't ever remember going into a discussion, saying 'This is what we want to do', we just pretty much did what we wanted to, within reason, of course."
About his return to WWE for the Raw 1000 lead up and the reaction he got: "You know what, as far as I'm concerned, WWE is a class act. I appreciated the opportunity; I had a lot of fun, saw a lot of old friends and caught up. (They were) just a class act from A-to-Z, so I was gratefulů I was surprised; I wouldn't go so far as to say overwhelming. I was surprised, it was a good reaction; a great crowd. (Heath) was a good worker, a good wrestler. I got the call a few days before from the office; I was actually in Florida on business so I went up there and it turned out very well."
