I drink a lot of beer.

It was fun and something I could do together with my wife and kids. We were all hand-washing bottles, cleaning and bottling together. It was like families that cook together - we just happened to brew together.

Mr. McMahon the character is a very effective heel.

Eric Bishoff the evil bastard is an effective character.

When I hired the first group of cruiserweights - which consisted of Dean Malenko, Chris Jericho, and Eddie Guerrero - I sat them down in my office, and I was very clear to them. I said to them, almost verbatim, 'You need to be my human car crashes at 9 P.M.'

The WWE also embraced more of a reality-based approach to wrestling a year or two after I established it. I knew, deep down inside, were it came from. The WWE did it better than I did, and they're still here, and I'm not, but nonetheless - I knew where it came from.

We formatted our shows so that, at nine o'clock, we were in the heat of hard-hitting, fast-paced cruiserweight action, and it was so different from the WWE that it worked.

I've probably done 1,000 interviews about the 'Monday Night Wars' and how 'Nitro' was made.

You no longer have to have a big record label behind you and have to kowtow to the politics that enabled you to get there. You can be a phenomenal artist and put your stuff out there on YouTube and find yourself becoming a star.

There are very few voices that can speak with any kind of authority or credibility on what happened back during the time when WCW and WWF were going head to head, and I think the audience is interested in that period of time, clearly. And like I said, nobody could speak to it quite the way I could.

AOL-Time Warner didn't want a WCW property on their platforms - being TNT or TBS or anything else - in any way, shape, or form, and that was the death nail.

A character like mine, there is only so much you can do from a storyline perspective. You can be that heel authority figure, which I was for a few years in WWE and WCW, and it's interesting, and it's fun, but after a while, you've kind of done everything you can do creatively.

When I came out for the 25th anniversary of Raw, I got a great reaction, and it made me feel very good, but as amazing a moment as that was, I know, after two months, fans would want to move on.

I'd like to manage someone, a young talent that maybe doesn't have the mic skills.

The television business, by virtue of what's happened to streaming, it's really turned the traditional television business upside down.

Sports entertainment in general, it's a very competitive business.

When WCW first really began to enjoy the success that we enjoyed, it was because of the story lines that we were putting out in front of people.

This isn't a competitive sport. Wrestling is not the NFL or the NHL. It's not really sports. It's entertainment. And in order to be entertaining, you have to create emotion. And you can't create emotion by simply having a wrestling match.

I think most people, most rational people, most people that I would feel comfortable sitting in a room with, understand that wrestling is scripted entertainment. But they don't want you to remind them of that.

You can't just run through a cookie cutter press and crank out a wrestler that looks like Bill Goldberg.

It's really gratifying to see, after all these years, and I've been in the business for 30 years, and after all of these years, to see fans wearing nWo shirts and fans of WCW who still remember make me feel good.
