I like to hit hard, I like to be hit hard, and I like really competitive matches. That’s my take on pro wrestling.
Matches aren’t won on the training field and there is no point flogging experienced campaigners unnecessarily.
Nobody is the color of translucent powder. Instead, choose a powder that matches your skin tone.
New Japan is far superior to WWE when it comes to the quality of the roster and the quality of the matches.
Wrestling is different from other sports. It is not just about physical strength. It is more of a mind game as during matches we have to read the mind of opponents and outwit them.
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 thinkingoh my God, I’m going to play Rafa Nadal on clay in five sets, that’s going to be painful.’
People do their cheat meals after their matches, but I have pizza the night before.
I produce the most exciting matches with pretty much any person on the roster. Pick any guy on the roster, and I can tell you a match I had with them that people can still remember.
The goalkeeper always starts again at nil, even when you’re 2-0 down. It always starts again at scratch. It’s a completely mental thing, and I keep reminding myself of it during matches.
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.
The good thing I have to say about Sonya and I, even as a tag team we do get some opportunities for singles matches.
The first run or match with The Shield always stands ou

The first run or match with The Shield always stands out to me – our matches, our wars.
The Undertaker is the John Wayne of our business. I watched him come out and deliver some of the best matches night after night.
That was one of those moments where I felt so confident. I played three matches in the same day.
Governmental intervention and personal responsibility are not mutually exclusive issues, but they do frame a ‘do it ourselves’ vs. ‘what are you doing for us’ debate. For the black community, that’s a debate that’s been raging at least as far back as the W.E.B. Du Bois, Booker T. Washington philosophical grudge matches.
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.
Like every player, I want to start more matches.
Barca have many opportunities all the time to win matches, which in England is very difficult because the challenges are greater.
WWE, of course, has had some fantastic two out of three falls matches.
When they hated me, it was hell. I used to fight the crowd before I even started my matches. It was crazy.
I’ve had several tough matches. Just getting through it every day, it’s really motivating.
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.
Lydia Ko
How many women’s football matches are selling out week in, week out, 20,000 plus? They’re not.
At Madrid, I was only used for important matches.
The pressure I did feel before matches was self-inflicted. I didn’t go out on court there thinking about what was being said in the papers and on TV about me.
My father pushed me to be a footballer. At every opportunity, he took me with him to play football. He came with me to matches.
I think that anytime you’re doing casting and you’re casting something that has a lot of existing fans you’re going to get a lot of opinions about whether it matches fans vision.
Lauren Schmidt Hissrich
My best tennis at my peak was when I played a lot of matches.
I enjoy learning about different periods and people, and then taking what’s universal about the human condition and seeing where it matches up. No matter where you are, certain things unite everybody.
Who have I picked fights with over the years? Bill Gates. Google. Mark Zuckerberg. Even – despite everything that’s written about my relationship with Steve Jobs – we had yelling matches.
We have to work as a team, play as a team. This is how you win matches.
There are a lot of guys in those SmackDown and Raw locker rooms that, given the opportunity, I’d love to have matches with, tell stories with, and do stuff with.
One person that I really love to wrestle again is AR Fox and Brian Cage again too because those are two of my most favorite matches.
After matches, the highlights show mostly the goals, scoring chances, assists. The spectator tends not to remember that, as a goalkeeper, I make difficult saves at great risk and start moves with my efforts.
I feel like, yeah, why not do inter-gender matches? It brings entertainment. It brings a lot of different viewers and demographics and all that, so why not do it?
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.
Mick Foley – the match we had at Backlash is one of my two or three favorite matches ever. Much props to him: he puts his body on the line, and what he did for me that day, I’ll never forget.
What hurts most is whenever I am leading, and then I lose the match, it is disappointing, and there are so many such matches.
This year I guess I decided in the bigger matches to take it more to my opponent instead of waiting a bit more for the mistakes. Yeah, this is I guess how you want to win Wimbledon, is by going after your shots, believing you can do it, and that’s what I was able to do today.
I’ve always written songs that were confessional, acoustic, wordy – my writing style matches my personality. The music always has to match the mouth it comes out of.
I think I have a lot of experience, especially of the big matches, and that is an advantage always.
I've played in a lot of big matches and you learn from

I’ve played in a lot of big matches and you learn from them.
Li Na
In high school we’d grapple on my friend‘s trampoline for hours. Sometimes we’d have a party at a house. We’d take challenge matches and throw down with different people. By we, I mean me. My friends usually just watched until the other guy’s friends jumped in.
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.
Braun Strowman
I am happy working for Sky Italia, they pay me to go to watch football matches which is great by me.
I watch a lot of Kevin Nash’s matches. I use a lot of his stuff. I definitely use a lot of his mannerisms.
Big Cass
No one would ever take Messi out of a match if the teams are evenly matched. But it can be done in matches where we take a big lead. This way, he can preserve his fitness.
I played a couple first-class matches at Carlton and Guaracara Park and it was a real burial ground for the fast bowlers.
For a lot of lads, they grow up going to matches with fathers or mates. Those Saturday or Sundays where you head over to the stadium probably with a scarf on – knowing every word, every clap and every pause to the supporters’ chants.
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’m not a big fan of watching my matches.
With Ajax and Liverpool, you win about 80 per cent of matches.
I’m helpless in post-round, hole-by-hole interviews. I can’t take you through most of the holes of winning the Players Championship, the U.S. Amateur or Ryder Cup matches. It’s like golf amnesia.
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.
I think in 1997, I was in my absolute prime. I was never bitter; I was uninjured. I was ready to go and ready to make some serious changes to make a difference to have my all-time favorite matches that I would have loved to have.
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.
I always do my utmost both in training and during matches.
People think when you’re struggling and not winning matches it’s because you’re not working hard. That’s the biggest misnomer in tennis.
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.
You just need to go into matches with a clear plan in T20 cricket. If you go half-half, it’s going to be really hard to come back.
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.
Alan Lewis
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 have the game for the pressure matches and now I just have to be consistent.
I even got game time in some Europa League matches, some other Premier League matches and managed to make a start in an FA Cup match as well.
Nathan Ake
It’s important that I stay positive in my messages during matches because the rest of the team is following the tone and tension in my voice. Nothing in my voice should let them down.
I miss training for football and I miss playing matches.
The audience will find the artist who matches their interests. If you’re not being true to yourself, your audience can’t find you, because there’s a wall up between who you are and who they’re seeing.
Let's be honest, I'm not a guy who is going to grind ou

Let’s be honest, I’m not a guy who is going to grind out $10 entry fantasy matches. If I’m going to compete, I want to play at the highest stakes.
As I got older and started moving up the ranking, the matches got more important, and my emotions ratcheted up. I guess I hid my real feelings behind the anger.
How good would guys like John Cena, Randy Orton or Batista have been if they would have had 900 matches in their first three years?
As a kid, I used to take the sheet off of my mother’s bed, make a tent and put on a show for the neighborhood kids and charge them two packs of matches. Then, the show got so good I started charging a penny.
I’ve been lucky enough to play over 100 Test matches for Australia.
Through social media, young people are constantly being pinged about a whole slew of potentially better matches or social activities.
The captains of the national team are the ones that have played the most matches. That’s what I had in the national team. Maximum respect to those players.
It is never easy to play with Roger, Rafa and Novak in the middle of the tournament because they’ve had matches and are fresh.
You work throughout the week to be prepared for the matches you’re called upon to play. If you train badly you go into the matches with doubts.
When you sit down and focus on the matches and series that took place during the 12 month period it strikes you just how broad the talent pool is in international cricket is today.
Sunil Gavaskar
We’ll work hard every day to prepare for the matches and to do our best in every game.
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.
When you’re No. 8 in the world, then you start losing some matches, I think it was the first time in my career my confidence went down, and from there it was a downward spiral.
I was a tiger, a good fighter, in good shape, but I was always nervous before boxing matches.
No player can win matches on his own.
This sounds like I’m a loser, but when I’m feeling down, or I need a bit of motivation, I do watch old NXT matches because they have some of my favourite memories as a performer in WWE.
I love fire. As a child I loved setting light to things. I’d always be in the forest putting matches to pieces of wood. I’ve always regarded fire as my friend.
I saw Kyrgios down in Australia. He played some very good tennis, won two or three matches, and has done the same here at Wimbledon. I think Australia’s got a good prospect in Kyrgios.
‘The Villaingets 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.
I know if I’m doing the right things and if I do the right work, I’ll win those long matches, and the success will come itself. This is not something I think of on a daily basis.
My greatest point is my persistence. I never give up in a match. However down I am, I fight until the last ball. My list of matches shows that I have turned a great many so-called irretrievable defeats into victories.
I’m proud to have played 14 matches at the World Cup with the number ten shirt and to have scored eight goals.
Handling pressure is the key to doing well in Indo-Pak matches.
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.
Richard Krajicek
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.
Eric Bailly
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 similar amount before I got hurt. It is a full-time lifestyle. It is very demanding.
Like every player, I want to start more matches rather than be used as a substitute.
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 know from Chelsea that it’s not about one or two brilliant performances. It is also about winning different types of matches.
I don’t think I’d be the wrestler or the athlete that I am today if I didn’t have some of the intergender matches that I have.
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.
Pavel Nedved
Bayley helped me a lot in my career, especially in NXT.

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.
I’m always traveling, so I tend to online shop. My go-to sites are Net-a-Porter and Matches. I recently moved to N.Y.C. and frequently shop at Sur La Table for my kitchen; Flair home collection, Aedes de Venustas for all my favorite home fragrances.
Jourdan Dunn
There must be an opportunity that matches with our strategy. Just because we have a gap, we don’t want to go and acquire anything and everything. What we acquire should fit in with our strategy, human resources and market expectations.
The scouts are watching matches and we have a huge amount of data we purchase and a pyramid approach in terms of delivering that information to our chief scout and his team who are assessing it.
Ed Woodward
The Premier League is guided by this dynamic: ball lost – ball recovered – ball lost again. That makes matches unpredictable, teams must be objective and behave like that because that’s what excites fans.
Mere humans who root through their refrigerators at three o’clock in the morning can only produce writing that matches what they do. And that includes me.
Jamie Vardy and myself, we have fun during matches.
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.
The most important thing is definitely success on the tennis court. I know that if I win matches, everything else will fall into place, and the money and sponsors will follow.
I’ve got my years on tour now kind of under my belt, and I’m getting the experience and playing more and more big matches, which I think helps.
I want people to tune into our show, looking forward to it all day, because of great 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 divide my time properly 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.
I watch loads of football; whenever I am not playing, I am at home watching matches, including the English league.
Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao was one of the worst boxing matches I’ve ever seen, but millions of people watched it because of the personalities involved.
People are always asking me where they can get some of my matches on tapes and DVDs. The people always tell me they see me on Youtube or whatever.
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.
It’s things that you find difficult as a bowler in matches that you have to practise more. Some people don’t, they just think line and length and forget about other things.
I’m not religious. In Spain all 22 players make the sign of the cross before they enter the pitch. If it works all matches must therefore end in a draw.
I loved reminiscing with my dad about his matches with the Bulldogs and his partnership with my uncle Bret Hart as the Hart Foundation.
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 cartoon characters 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.
I firmly believe Test series should never be two Test matches, three is enough.
English football is very different from Italian; it’s more physical, and matches are always very open.
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.
It is impossible to play the best of nines and expect the matches to finish on time.
If you win one or two matches at home on good wickets, on grassy wickets, you’ll develop confidence automatically.
Positional play is good for training, but in games, to win matches, you need someone who can go past defenders and take chances.
Not only was it that I surprised people by beating Bret Hart, but it was a great match. They still rate it as one of the best wrestling matches of all time.
It is not uncommon to use a towel in afternoon matches, particularly in a place like Mohali in the month of April-May.
I think I have become mentally stronger now, and I have

I think I have become mentally stronger now, and I have full confidence that I can finish close matches.
A lot of my main-event matches will last around the half-hour mark, and if you can have a variety of emotions within that half hour, that’s a great story from start to finish.
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.
Bull markets are Test matches and not 50-over games.
My psychologist told me I have to control my emotions and be more positive. She’s taught me to stop the negative thoughts during the matches with some exercises. That’s helped me make an improvement.
It is greed or financial difficulty that makes people fix matches, not gaining an edge over rivals, so it is different from say Lance Armstrong or Ben Johnson.
When I’m warming up on the sidelines, I can often hear monkey chants. Me, who played so many matches for Germany.
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.
I had one of the best matches of my career with Matt Cross, and I’d never met him before, until that day. Wrestling will always be in my heart.
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.
I was a huge Mike Tyson fan, would sit through the night watching boxing matches and would hit the bag at every opportunity I would get.
I used to go play football matches in the morning, and I’d go straight from me football game to a dance competition.
Tristan MacManus
Players never want to lose football matches.
One of the matches that is pretty dear to my heart is when I took on Chris Jericho at Night of Champions in 2008.
As long as you are successful and winning matches, the language is no problem at all. But when the results are insufficient, the difficulties begin. At this time, a coach needs to go into more detail with his instructions, and that’s where the problems can lie.
Ottmar Hitzfeld
I’ve had matches go 38 minutes. To be able to move for 38 minutes and have somebody’s life in your hands is a difficult thing.
If you’re a manager in the Premier League the pressure is enormous because if you don’t win matches, you’ll not be there very long.
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.
Back in the day when I started on the independent scene, guys would not watch women’s matches, and if they did, they would do it to make fun of us.
I met a Shanghai photographer who finds these old streets and matches the French names to what they are today. I was able to find my grandfather‘s block, and just walking the same streets and finding his house was deeply moving. I finally felt connected to China.
People tend to think of the quest as a sort of fanciful or fantastical form, but actually, I think it’s pretty realistic. I think that story of gathering allies to your side – recruiting your band of companions – actually matches the shape of most great careers, most great lives.
We want to win all of our matches and focus on ourselves.
When I was in Portugal I hardly played six-or-seven matches. Although I would train daily to keep my shape. Even then it was really difficult when I came back to get in shape and represent my country.
During high school, I would purposely lose tennis and squash matches to escape the agony of anxiety that competitive situations would provoke in me.
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.
Of course I want to be champion because that means you’re the best, but I just love wrestling, and if I can have good matches week in and week out, that would make me happy.
The first accepted piece 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.
I am someone who pays attention to the currents that are going on socially in terms of what people want. When I catch wind of the types of matches people want, those are the matches I want, too.
Karrion Kross
Of course, legends can call out whoever they want and do as they please, but they can’t just show up and get handed matches.
There is nothing else can get you ready for matches than matches.
Great matches are necessary, and everybody loves to wat

Great matches are necessary, and everybody loves to watch a great match.
Music is a part of my life all the time – on the plane, before matches, driving out to the court.
Matches are decided by details and you have to be ready to create spaces and help open up defences. It is what I have to do.
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 always want to go up against the best competition, I want to have as many championship matches as possible.
I’ve been pretty good about keeping my nose to the grindstone. I feel like I won a lot of matches from hard work and persistence, even maybe when I had better options as far as shot-making.
I’m a product of amateur wrestling, and there is no one there to help you with matches or win matches – you have to do it yourself.
In my view, fitness training isn’t that important in England, as they all train with such intensity anyway and have a competitive edge when just sprinting. The matches are all hard-fought, too.
Older readers will remember there used to be matches on Christmas Day. I remember leaving the fireside and the presents to watch matches on the day as a boy but such matches were rare by the time I began playing.
Obviously, matches and all that stuff takes its toll on your body and so forth. But as you get sort of a bit older, a bit wiser, and a bit more experienced, you know also how to handle it.
In 1983, I played in a new tournament called the Professional Snooker League. I won eight of my 11 matches, beating Alex Higgins, Jimmy White and Dennis Taylor, among others.
Men and women succeed because they find a field of endeavor that matches their interests and abilities.
Well, the memories were obviously – every match is important, every point counts, especially the last sort of 18, 20 years when the matches have been so tight.
Bernhard Langer
I think fans always want something new, but they want somebody who can deliver – to go out there and really entertain them and have good matches.
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.
The secret of having a successful promotion is having an awesome promotion with wrestling matches that people like.
There is always pressure in all matches in the World Cup. This is when you must go beyond your capacity as a competitor.
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.
The regular things in my life now – training sessions and playing matches – will all fall away. That will leave a big empty space and it will need to be filled.
In the Premier League you know you’ll play a certain amount of matches so you can always think ‘I’ll put it right next week’ if you lose.
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 offer enough 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 had the pleasure of learning how to wrestle long matches and use psychology.
Spanish League is very tough, especially away matches.
Everything matches black, especially black.
You are born with a voice. And in a way, you don’t choose what you want to sing. It’s the quality of your voice that matches a certain repertoire, and that’s what you’re going to sing.
Soccer matches should be something special, something people eagerly look forward to, something that brightens life.
I played over 130 matches, including four finals, so there have been many great moments.
I prefer ECW's style as far as the actual matches I'm c

I prefer ECW’s style as far as the actual matches I’m capable of having.
My aim is to play Test matches. For me, there is a different feel of Test cricket as it tests your character. You come to know about your mental toughness, and most importantly, there is another level of satisfaction as a player.
Football officiating is so subjective – much more subjective than any other sport. But the more I watch – and I watch too many matches – the more impressed I am with referees.
When you get older, 10 matches a year are enough.

When I was leaving WWE, I’d started becoming interested in applying parkour to the matches and using the ring environment in fun, new ways.
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.
A lot of my intensity in wrestling was due to my mental preparation before the matches. I got myself into a different world.

So I don’t see any stress from players or coaches with coaching during the matches, to be honest.
Getting 20 wickets in test cricket will win you matches and that will be the focus.
I think Kohli is magnificent in a run chase, I have to say. He has won so many matches for India.
Innovation in an existing company is not just the sum of great technology, key acquisitions, or smart people. Corporate innovation needs a culture that matches and supports it.
I was playing 60, 70 matches a year in college. In the pros, unless you’re winning, you’re not playing that many.
Obviously, I love Boston. I love the passion. It kind of matches my personality. The fans, I almost feel like they’re just as passionate as me.

Definitely I feel with more matches, I’m the type of player I win a match or few matches, then I get confidence right away and then I play better and better.
It’s not always about wins and losses, but winning two Survivor Series matches is something I will never forget.
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.
I want Shogun because he’s a legend of the sport. I respect him very much. He has good style and it matches with mine. I want to fight him in Brazil.
