In France, I discovered that I love writing in the city. There’s such an intensity to being in the city that matches the intensity of what you’re experiencing in your head.
I am a Division I All-American wrestler, but I wrestled college wrestling matches, seven minutes long. If I was to go in there and wrestle for seven minutes of a fight, a 25-minute fight, you’re not getting nothing out of me for the rest of the time.
Everywhere I go, the styles are different. When you wrestle in Japan, it’s more strong style. When I go to Mexico, it’s definitely more high-flying. And in my matches I’ve had with Taya in Impact, it’s been a lot more ground-based.
I did those two TV matches in WCW against Kevin Sullivan and Meng, and within five minutes of walking into that locker room, I was like, ‘I don’t want to be here.’ I could tell this is not the place for me. And the dream was still WWF and getting there.
Numbers are not important. Muttiah Muralitharan is a legend with 800 wickets. I don’t even know if I can play the number of matches he has played. It was nice to get noticed but franklynumbers don’t attract me much.
I’ve gone into cage matches, I’ve gone into Ultimate X, and I’ve said this before: I know exactly what I’ve signed up for, and I’m not afraid of anything in front of me, and I’m willing to do anything and whatever it takes to come out with my hand raised.
That first worldtitle has to be the most wonderful moment and to beat Bristow, the No 1 in the world, was the ultimate. There’s not many matches I remember, but I do remember that one, remember playing really, really well. Bristow was so upset he wouldn’t talk to me for a few weeks after I beat him.
You learn that in so many of our matches, it can all depend on just four or five points.
I don’t really rate these matches as winning or losing, Sydney and Kooyong. That’s not important to me. What’s important for me is to get out on the court, do my thing and work on a few things I needed to do.
Yes, you have to treat playing Pakistan just like you would any other side, but in other matches, you oftenstress on the processesknowing that the result will take care of itself. Against Pakistan, the result is more important than the process, and that is the simple truth.
I’m happy I was able to stick through it and was being very disciplined with what I had to do, because I know eventuallyhard work will pay off. It’s only a matter of now just trying to make sure I get matches under my belt and I feel more and more comfortable playing matches.
Throughout my career, especially the second half of my career, I was always nerdy or anal when it came to how I prepared for my matches.
I’ve played many matches against English clubs and the national team – and I always notice a difference in those games. When you play against the inventors of football, it adds more importance to the result, and you can see that demonstrated by the levels on the pitch.
Do I think Vince McMahon was looking at my matches in Japan going, ‘We need him?’ No. He wasn’t. He’s too busy. There’s no way. But somebody may have been looking and going, ‘All right, I like this guy. Let’s give him a shot.’
If your attitude is good and you want to have good matches and you want to be employed for the right reasons, then I think people start to see that and respect that and respect you as a person, and you can fit in anywhere.
But when I’m losing a few matches, suddenly ‘It’s his fault‘, ‘He doesn’t want to practice’, ‘He doesn’t need it’, ‘He doesn’t care’. And when everything goes well, there are people coming behind the stone, saying, ‘Oh, my God, he’s back finally, and I was there to help him out’.
But I still serve pretty big and that’s one of my biggest weapons, so if my shoulder holds up and I can count on it, I can win a few matches and then you never know how the other guys are going to react to the fatigue and the length of the matches.
Dark matches are usually off-camera. Sometimes you don’t even wrestle in front of the crowd, you wrestle in front of the agents – but my first match with WCW was on a pay-per-view.
I always wanted to make the matches in some way different unique and interesting. I never wanted to have that basic match. I just wanted us to stand out in some way or another, whether it was storytelling or interesting wrestling moves.
When I first played, I had the belief that I could go out there and win matches but when people saw me first I don’t they had the belief. I had to be able to be able to prove, to tell them you can count on me.
My first memory of the national team is the 1982 World Cup. I remember those days at our home or at my uncle‘s house, with all the family and those long dinners watching the matches. But I also remember that, during the games, I went outside or onto the balcony to play.
Cesaro, and I’ve always thought this ever since I saw complete matches and work with guys and be able to do all of the things that he does and you see pretty much all of it in a 15-20 minute extravaganza, I think he’s special.
I feel that I have had great matches with Rey Mysterio, AJ Styles, DanielBryan, Seth Rollins.
Can you do inter-gender matches? Ronda Rousey and our match at Wrestlemania – sure, it can be done. Women don’t need a man in their match to steal the show. They just need an equalplatform and opportunity, and if the women have it, they will work just as hard, if not harder, than anybody else to steal that show.
A player should be disparaged if he gives less than his all, if he doesn’t give 100%, no matter what shirt he’s wearing. Whether it’s your national team, your club, or little league. Yes, there are friendly matches, recreational ones, and so on, but sport in its essence is about giving your best.
I did not have to prove anything to people who doubted me, just to my team-mates and to Barcelona. The best thing is to do it on the field, with victories, with goals. But more than the goals is winning matches.
If you’re going to play in all three formats, you can’t play all the games. You probably play two Test matches, miss the last one and take some time off and maybe come back for the second ODI or second T20.
What people don’t realize here in WWE is, you can go out in any company, and you can have these crazy, five-star matches, and you can do all this stuff, and you don’t have chains on you. The trick in WWE is to do it within this confined little box.
When I was going off to training and matches at Arsenal, my mum wouldn’t be on the side cheering me on: she’d be working so I’d have football boots. I saw that you had to work hard if you wanted to do anything in life.
An ideal day starts with putting on a good, smart, fun show where I learn something and ends with me fending off atomickneedrops from my two kids in our no-holds-barred pillow fight/steel cage matches. They are a ruthless tag team.
Any big televised event that starts at the crack of dawn is worth getting up for. I’ve done it all my life: big boxing matches, royalweddings, even TV-A.M.’s inaugural episode was enjoyed in pyjamas in my house.
I played street football from the age of seven and later went into the varzea. Sometimes I’d play as many as three or four matches a day: I couldn’t get enough of it. It’d get to the point when my muscles would cramp up.
When I was a kid, I wanted to be a pro wrestler. Other kids wanted to be cops and astronauts, but I wanted to be Hulk Hogan, the Ultimate Warrior, ‘Macho Man’ Randy Savage, Brutus ‘The Barber‘ Beefcake, and Jake ‘The Snake.’ I wanted to be those guys! I used to tape matches on my trampoline and body-slam my brother.
We’re bringing a focus on wrestling. We’re bringing an emphasis on wrestling matches and action taking place in or around the ring. We’ll do great interviews too, but in these segments, we can do it all in the arena and around the ring. We can do some stuff backstage; we just don’t spend half the show backstage.
When you’ve won a lot of matches you know how to play the important moment – you have a great feeling on court, confidence. You know what you have to do, when to go for the shots or when to play solid. It’s really clear in your head, and you trust in your hands.
Being in a career and going from highlight to highlight and playing a lot of matches you go through it and think it’s normal when you play in front of 60,000 and you almost want to vomit in front of every game.
A lot of the players are very complimentary about each other; they embrace at the end of matches because the level of the tennis has been so good. I think that’s something that tennis has got to be proud of.
I meditate and I have cut out red meat. For me it is just breathingtechniques, learning to be still, to control your thought processes, it calms you down. It wasn’t about dealing with the pressure of games – I’ve always been all right in matches.
If I could go back in time, I would have loved to have done more with Triple H. He blossomed into a bigger star after I left. I regret, looking back now, that we didn’t have more matches or better matches or at least one pay-per-view match where we could have really showed our best stuff – or, at least, I did.
More than half of the matches are won in the dressing room for him. The guy he’s playing against is sitting in the locker-room thinking ‘oh my God, I’m going to play Rafa Nadal on clay in five sets, that’s going to be painful.’
In my opinion, it’s better to be alone out there, having to decide on your tactics during the matches. I would prefer it if it was just me and my opponent having to solve the problems out there on the court.
It is the most important thing we can do to establish a promotion, is to establish the championship. It is what everyone is trying to obtain, how do you obtain the championship? By establishing a run of matches, a streak, by winning a big match, winning a title eliminator.
You know, I think playing doubles definitely helps your singles game in all aspects. Just being able to get that match practice, match preparation before playing singles matches. Then it also builds confidence just getting wins from doubles, yeah.
I’ve played such good golf, and it was hard coming up and it wasn’t easy in any matches or any shots. It means a lot. I think hopefully it will mean a lot to New Zealand because I’m the next winner of the U.S. Amateur after Danny Lee.
How many women’s football matches are selling out week in, week out, 20,000 plus? They’re not.
In a way getting fired up for these matches is what makes the Premier League the hardest tournament for me. Knowing I can lose and still be in the tournament probably makes me relax too much sometimes.
When my two boys were growing up and asking me about what I did and what kind of player I was I showed them all the matches from the European Championships in 1988 when we beat Germany in the semi-final and won the final against Russia.
Before I play matches I’m always switching myself on. That’s why I have that walk-on music – Two Steps From Hell – they produce really good motivational gladiator-style music. As soon as that music comes on I’m switched on and I’m ready for a brawl!
I can’t really pick a favorite match.I enjoy every opportunity the WWE gives me to wreak havoc on other human beings. I’ve done a lot of different stipulation matches, and there are still a few I haven’t done, but nothing I look forward to.
I am happy working for Sky Italia, they pay me to go to watch football matches which is great by me.
WrestleMania has to have 7 or 8 matches that have value in order to sell that show because people are coming from around the world to see it. When you sell 100,000 tickets, that’s not based on one match. There’s a lot of interest in a lot of matches.
I want to be a champion. I want to be a long-reigning featherweight champion. I want to be known in the history books: my name everywhere as a champion. And then, later on in my career, when I start getting good, then I can start doing the exhibition matches for money and stuff.
I wanted to be the best street fighter in Houston, Texas. And I thought if I got a trophy or two, I’d go back home, and everyone would be afraid of me. I had one fight in ’67, the first one. In ’68 of October, I was an Olympic gold-medalist, a dream come true, with a total of 25 boxing matches.
It’s great to see that there are Dortmund fans in every stadium. That is something that motivates you, and in the end, you look forward to games even more, especially Europa League or Champions League away matches, when you see how many fans follow us. It is something very special.
Maybe one of my strengths was to bring the energy to the team, and then defensively, I contributed a lot compared to other players, which is quite essential for the big matches; you know, against big clubs, you need to be very cautious with opponents that attack.
I want very badly to have a success story at the end of it, at the end of my career and say, regardless of how many matches I can win this summer, I want to go to the U.S. Open – for that be my final event – and say I went out on my own terms, instead of it being taken away from me in Winston-Salem in 2013.
I know where I’m ranked, but I don’t look at it that much, I don’t study it that much. You really can’t look at it that way, you’ve got to try to win as many matches as you can, and it’s cliche, but you’ve got to take it one at a time.
The scrum and the tackle are the two really contentious areas of the game. If you get those two aspects right, most rugby matches will work in your favour.
I think as females, we always want to have more air time, more room time, more – longer matches and more main events. But, at the end of the day, we’re going in that direction, and I’m happy with that, and I’m happy with the side everyone has taken in women’s wrestling.
I’ve had my processes and opportunities with the Mexican national team. I played a lot of international matches for my country and now I think it’s time to give the younger players and generation a chance.
‘The Villain‘ gets off on the idea of disgusting the crowd and then telling the crowd to keep the noise down while he does it. The reason it works is because it comes at a point in matches where the anxiety shows.
Maybe, one other match better; but if you look at the tournament as a whole, I played very high quality tennis for seven matches and raised my game when I needed to.
There are Champions League matches that have really wowed me, like when I saw the final between Real Madrid and Juventus. There are plenty of other matches too, it’s also something that motivates me.
You have to be extremely fit. It is a professional sport. We have five shows a week. In 2014, I had 220 matches; in 2015, I was on the way to a similaramount before I got hurt. It is a full-timelifestyle. It is very demanding.
I was fortunate enough to watch Bayley at NXT, when they had their matches. Those girls were on fire. It’s all around us. Great ladies‘ wrestling is all around us. So it has not disappeared by any means.
I liked the generation of Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs, who I admired. I was a little bit jealous of Karel Poborsky who played in Manchester and experienced great matches. I know he still feels that love.
Bayley helped me a lot in my career, especially in NXT. I had some of my best NXT matches with her, and she definitely helped me develop as a talent, because you’re just as good as the person you’re in there with.
Excitement was there because I had the realisation of having matches that weren’t always TV matches, that weren’t always strict on timelines or storylines and more so focused on the wrestling, different opponents I hadn’t worked before and a lot of one-on-one matches.
Whenever something in the system changes, you have to prove yourself again. But wherever you go, you have to prove that you’re better than whoever else is on the team. At a team like Arsenal, that’s always going to be hard so I always have to be on it in training and matches.
I always had a sense of discipline in me. However, there was a time when I couldn’t dividemy timeproperly between off-field things and on-field assignments. The focus would be missing at times, and that would affect my preparation for matches. I managed to change that.
My expectations have always been to be one of the top players in the world, and that matches well with Paylocity’s mission. They are changing things in their industry just like I want to make a mark on professional golf.
Even my most physical matches in New Japan have all been athletic contests, and generally, they’ve all been fair and square. It’s been this new, strong style we’ve been trying to create in New Japan, with my own personal style.
If you look at wrestling when I started to get my big break back in 1992, I changed wrestling from the cartoons of Hulk Hogan and Iron Sheik and the matches with the leg drop and the hand behind the ear and the playing to the crowd. They were just cartooncharacters if you ask me.
Almost every morning when I go to the studio to work, I discover a fresh rose in the bud vase on my dressing table… one living and vital thing in a dusty arena of powder and tissue and matches and greasepaint.
If I was in love with someone, I would get their picture out of the school yearbook and do portraits. If I was curious about sex, I would draw pictures of it. There were no books for me to look at. Then I would go find my father’s matches to burn the paper.
As a kid, I used to see how Sachin Tendulkar used to win matches under pressure for India in Sharjah or other places. So I was always keen to repeat the same in similar situations. I don’t take pressure on myself when I am in the middle. I love pressure, and I always believe that pressure makes you more focused.
As a wrestling promoter, I believe that it has to be a unique, special situation. Intergender matches should be treated on a case by case basis. If they become the norm, then I don’t think it is interesting.
Before you lay a foundation on the cricket field, there should be a solid foundation in your heart and you start building on that. After that as you start playing more and more matches, you learn how to score runs and how to take wickets.
My uncle wrestled in the late ’80s to early ’90s, and I was too young to see his matches. However, he has always supported me in my journey, and I think that without his support, all this would not have been possible. He taught me a lot, and he is the reason that I’m a WWE wrestler.
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.
Sometimes you have chemistry with people that is undeniable, and it just works, and sometimes you have matches with someone you think you are going to have good chemistry with, and it just doesn’t turn out that way.
The first acceptedpiece of writing is the most exciting. No other publishing experience matches it. Perhaps jaundice sets in, or expectations are raised, or one starts to think that one is better than is the truth.
For me, it was the early independent era of AJ Styles, Samoa Joe, Daniel Bryan that inspired me and they were in sports halls and grimy little venues having fantastic wrestling matches and that’s what appealed to me about wrestling at the time.
Ultimate Warrior had a hell of a gimmick, but wrestling is about so much more than that. You have to be consistent, work main events every night and have matches that people really believe in and want to see.
I’ll take all my matches against WWE’s best matches, I’ll put it up against Ring of Honor‘s best matches, or whatever promotion you want, and I guarantee people will be more entertained with my matches than theirs.
I used to wear sleeveless T-shirts all the time on court, but now I’ve got a brand new look – I’ve moved on to polo shirts. Sleeveless T-shirts give you real freedom of movement and they keep you cooler in matches, but I just thought it was time for a change.
I do think that a school day that matches the work day makes a lot of difference for working families, but the big driver of this effort is education. Period. We have a lot of students not gaining the skills they need, and it is pretty clear that school does not offerenough time to get that job done.
I have a bunch of storylines that I could pass to other performers or especially all my knowledge that I have when it comes to building matches, to creating an exciting finish or telling stories in the ring.
I think the fact that Brock Lesnar is not on the road 52 weeks a year, is not on ‘Monday Night Raw’ every episode, is not performing 300 matches per year… I think that dictates to the public, ‘Brock Lesnar is special.’ That an appearance by Brock Lesnar in an of itself is newsworthy. It’s not commonplace.
A lot of people want to blow up as a producer, but what helps you blow up as a producer is an artist that matches well with your music. When that artist gets popular and blowing up, and people start knowing them, that’s when they start knowing you.
I watch a lot of old-school wrestling, and one of my favourite matches is my dad vs my step-dad at Starrcade ’85, Magnum TA vs Tully Blanchard. In that match everything looked so aggressive, everything was so real, and it looked like a brutal fight.
Piggie James was the storyline that brought LayCool to fruition and really started and helped develop our characters. It was a main storyline that, at the time, started giving Divas more screen time and longer matches – we even had a huge celebration.
If brands can find a voice that matches them, and the artist embraces it, they can find a way that would serve them that doesn’t feel like a sellout to the artists and has dramaticimpact for the brand.
In France, sometimes, you have some players or coaches say, ‘If we go there, and we come back with one point, it’s okay.’ Here? No chance of this! Everybody wants to win. I think every team is playing to win matches, so the game is hard and fast, intensive. I really like the Bundesliga for that.
Fortunately for me, I discovered Ring of Honor. And I saw guys who were much smaller in stature but were putting on these amazing matches that I had never seen in WWE before. So I thought, at the very least, I’d love the chance to be able to wrestle in a company like that someday.
