I spent more money on one robe than guys spend in five years.

None of this was written to hurt anybody’s feelings.
Whenever I hear the crowds going WOOOOO!! It makes me feel very good, it means I’ve worked very hard and earned a lot of respect, each night I go out there I go out there for the fans to make them smile, or make them cry.
My shoes are worth more……than your house!
I was always a fan but me and Kevin Pattero, he was a friend of mine who trained for the Olympic games in 1972 he and I became very close friends and roommates and I kind of rode his coattails into the business.

You gotta have a pocket square, I think.
People think it’s hard to travel to the airports. 9/11 has made our travel difficult, with the security laws and that. As far as comparing what we do to driving 3,000 miles a week, making fifty bucks a night, sometimes one hundred bucks a night, it’s a lot different. Guaranteed contracts, first class air fare, Hilton hotels in London, Champaign. Waddaya want? What more could you ask for!
I was really good at being a bad guy; I like that role. Not being bad to people – just talking bad.
“I laugh a lot in the ring when I’m having fun.”
My God, thank you. Thank you very much. I’m almost embarrassed by the response, but when I see this, I know that the twenty five years that I’ve spent trying to make you happy every night of your life was worth every damn minute of it.
We only work the most I ever work is three days a week. Very rare that I will work four. If I’m involved in a scenario where they need me to be in it, I don’t mind. They always work around my children’s schedule, their sports, and stuff like that. That’s been very important to me.
“I enjoyed my time as Raw Co-Owner. Actually I got beat more! I got beat up a lot as Co-owner but it was ok.”
I don’t think there’s anything positive in the WCW brand at all. It was dead when they brought it. They were going to bury us when they did business.
“The old saying is: ‘Time off is a wrestler’s worst enemy.’”
I had my first ‘Survivor Series’ in 1991 and I was fortunate enough to be an instrumental part of the shows I was on.
I’m every woman’s dream and every man’s nightmare.
In my life, I’ve been a movie star, a rock star, and a sports star, all wrapped up into one-and worked harder at it than anybody else.
If you’re a man, you don’t cry about it, you take life, the ups and downs; if you’re a real man you never go down, you just stay up!
I’m gonna walk down the aisle in style and profile.
I thought Chris Benoit was worthy of being a Horseman. I thought Dean Melinko was. Obviously I thought Steven Michael was, though obviously he was inexperienced, I thought he was a perfect fit as a horseman. I did not like the Paul Roma deal. I did not like Sid Vicious or about two or three guys that they put in there, I just couldnt see it. I couldn’t stomach it, but I had to.
“I didn’t have any plans to become a wrestler until about a year before I started.”
Hell you’re Shawn Michaels! The greatest wrestler of all time!
We used to wrestle every night, 385 times a year. For ten years. 365 days. Never had any holidays off, ever. Holidays were always two-day venues. Two event venues. Afternoon and night.
Diamonds are forever, and so is Ric Flair!

To be the man, you gotta beat the man!
I was really good at being a bad guy.
I’ve had more world championships than you’ve had women!
I do close to 30 minutes in cardio at a very high rate. I raise the level of intensity. I do a level 18 on the elliptical at four miles an hour for 20 minutes. That’s 360 calories. I want to see someone else try that. The resistance factor at 18 is brutal. No one goes to 20.
First of all, Vince McMahon doesn’t argue – he tells you!
If you have notoriety, you can dress any way you want to dress. That’s the way it is. I just like to get dressed up. I think that they go hand in hand – notoriety and people lookin at ya. If they look at ya, either you look like a million dollars, or you don’t. A guy can have a phenomenal body, but if the suit doesn’t fit him, forget it.
I bleed like nobody else.
Nobody has wrestled everybody in the business like I have, especially not Bret Hart.
Miami was always a town that was kind to me as a wrestler. It’s a great wrestling town, and it’s a great town, period. There’s so much to do in Miami.

In order to be the man, you have to beat the man.
The guy who could be me, but he knows when to draw the line, is John Cena. John Cena can rock ‘n’ roll, let me tell you.
For me, it’s about camaraderie. My whole life is like, if something’s going on, nothing ever preceded fun. I always put my friends and the fun and the business ahead of everything.
When somebody has convinced you that you’re not worth anything to anybody anymore, and they spend a lot of time doing it, you start believing it yourself.
I can take more punishment than anyone in the business. ( Ric Flair’s Sayings )
It’s so hard for me to sit back here in this studio, looking at a guy out here, hollering my name!—When last year I spent more money, on spilled liquor, in bars from one side of this world to the other, than you made! You’re talking to the Rolex wearing, diamond ring wearing, kiss stealing, whoa! wheelin dealin’, limosuine riding, jet flying son of a gun and I’m having a hard time holding these alligators down!
Do I feel like I’m 65? No. I feel like I’m 15. That’s my problem. I’m trying as hard as I can to act like I’m 65, but it’s very difficult.
It’s much more casual than it was, but my clothes and my ring attire – I thought up half of what I brought to the show.
I’d love to see Sting come back. The guys that had the potential to make any money and draw any money, they came. The ones that made it, made it, and the ones that didn’t, didn’t. The list of those who made it, there’s lots on the list of those who didn’t make it are longer than the ones who did.
I have had the greatest wrestling career in the history of pro wrestling. ( Ric Flair’s Sayings )
I think my fondest memories would be with Sting, and Steamboat, Dusty and er. I made a lot of money wrestling Wahoo McDaniel and Jack Mulligan too. It’d be hard to pinpoint one.

Without your health, you’ve got nothing going on. I thank God every day for good health.
“Space Mountain may be the oldest ride in the park, but it has the longest line.”
Whether you like it or not, learn to love it, because its the best thing going. Wooooo!
I tell everyone in the world that I have always been the best father I could be and that I was the worst husband. Wooo!
I feel great. I had a blood clot. It was a bad deal. But when I look at my friends with hip replacements, knee replacements, shoulder replacements, neck surgeries, back surgeries, I’ll take the blood clot.
