Been Very

Shinsuke Nakamura is probably one of the best wrestlers I've ever been in the ring with. He's very unorthodox. Everything he does is with knockout power. He's a guy who is very flamboyant, so don't let his Michael Jackson antics fool you. This guy is deadly.

- A.J. Styles

Guy Been

I've never really felt like a veteran. I've never felt like the guy who's like, 'OK, everyone needs to look up to me and respect me.' I've always just been one of the guys that people are excited to get in the ring with. That's all I want.

- A.J. Styles

Big Constant

Boxers risk a lot in the ring. That's one of the things that attracts me to it. You want to see a knockout but I also really don't want to see people get hurt.

Couple About

I know if I don't look after myself, I will be talking to you in a couple of years' time mumbling my words and slurring.

- Anthony Joshua

Either Realised

- Ben Hecht

Mature LeBron

I'll have time to mature and develop, and one day, hopefully, I can bring a ring to wherever I am. LeBron did it.

- Benedict Cumberbatch

Grave Engaged

I try to remember, as I hear about friends getting engaged, that it's not about the ring and it's not about the wedding. It's a grave thing, getting married. And it's easy to get swept up in the wrong things.

His name was Netanyahu.

- Brin-Jonathan Butler

I Think Guy

A guy that I was supposed to face - and I think that he was just plain downright scared to get in the ring with me because he was one of those guys that was on top and saw a huge threat in Brock Lesnar at the time - that's 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin.

- Brock Lesnar

Being Real Got

One match that really sticks out for me, there's a bunch of matches with all the guys that I worked with. For me, when I got in the ring, I approached it as being real because I was a real character. I didn't have a gimmick name; I didn't have a gimmick finish.

- Brock Lesnar

Game Differences

I grew up in Mississippi, and there's no fashion game there. Even in 'Bling Ring,' I had to learn a lot about fashion - you know, the differences between lapels - and it wasn't until we'd wrapped that I really started getting into it.

Love Own

My dream is to leave this business on my own terms, and if it were my terms, I would love to do the Royal Rumble. I would love to do Wrestle Mania in New Orleans, because I had so many matches there over the years working for Mid-South. I was in the ring with Muhammad Ali in the Superdome. To close it there would be great.

- Jake Roberts

Guy Named

There is this great, great wrestler, who never really got an opportunity to be a star, named Len Denton: he was a masked guy called The Grappler. He was one of my favorite guys to ever wrestle, and it was just a tremendous pleasure to step in the ring with him.

Mistake Screwed

Go Metallica

Metallica is a wonderful key to have on my key ring. I can go anywhere - it's great.

Drums all have their own particulars - each drum has a place where they sound the best - where they ring out and resonate the best, and the head surface isn't too loose or too tight, mainly so you get a good rebound off of the head.

- Chad Smith

Irritating Tones

Ring tones are just irritating, aren't they?

I get cheered more and more for one simple reason: When I step in the ring, I steal the show! I will not accept anything less from myself.

Want Border

The majority of border collie owners and breeders don't want to have anything to do with the show ring.

Phone Great Thing

That's the great thing about a tractor. You can't really hear the phone ring.

- Jeff Foxworthy

Warrior Shawn

Early, when I first started wrestling, I wanted to be a combination of Sting and the Ultimate Warrior: The Ultimate Warrior's craziness and weird personality and Sting's coolness and the way he carried himself to the ring. But then later on, when it came to physicality and athleticism, Shawn Michaels topped the cake.

- Jeff Hardy

Fearless Used

People ask me how I am so fearless on a ladder and how I have no fear in the ring. And the answer to that question is a bit complicated. I used to have no fear, but that is no longer true. With a wife and two girls at home, I'm more afraid now than ever.

Finger Your

A ring is a halo on your finger.

- Jennifer Johnston

Career Started

I started this fight career with one objective. When I step inside a ring or an octagon, it is to beat the guy in front of me.

- Eddie Alvarez

Bad Baggage

To me, wrestling is therapy. No matter how bad my personal situation is, when I step into the ring, all my troubles disappear. My baggage stays in the back where it belongs.

- Eddie Guerrero

Pain Honestly

I honestly can't describe what goes on in my head when I'm out there. People who don't wrestle can't possibly understand it. When I'm in the ring, I don't feel any pain. I'm in another world out there.

- Eddie Guerrero

Been Fed

Since the day I was born, wrestling has sustained me and my family. It's the way my father fed me; it's the way I feed my kids. More importantly, wrestling is my greatest release. It's been such a blessing for me. I can step into the ring and let it all go - all my anger, all my frustration, all my pain.

- Eddie Guerrero

Like Wearing

I like wearing my wedding ring, it's nice.

- Jerry O'Connell

City Very

The French are pretty thin-skinned. The few times I mentioned a French writer in 'City Boy,' the relatives would ring up in high dudgeon. I once wrote a mocking review of Marguerite Duras in the 'New York Review of Books,' and good friends of mine in France got very angry.

- Edmund White
