Quotes

Dusty Rhodes: If Sting has to carry me on his back damn it all... if he has to drag me in a wagon... I'm breathing, you understand what 'm saying, I'm breathing... You should have got it done. It's violence for the sake of violence, but I will turn it around... to my violence, to my thunder, to my lightning bolt.
