On being apart of WrestleMania. “Any time you get a chance to be a part of it is an honour.” “It’s a good feeling.”

Jack asked if training guys made him feel like he’s giving back to the wrestling business. “I feel like I can teach them what I know, teaching them the ins and outs of the business giving back.”

Jack asked what its like to see someone like Batista become as big as he has. “He came to me because he knew I was a good trainer.” “There is no question that he stands out.” “I knew he’d be okay the market is easily looking for a big guy.” “I’m very, very proud of him.”

On Mickey Rourke. “He did not have respect for the wrestling business.” “He thought we were one of those phoney people who don‘t deserve to be called a sport.” “two days after we started training he apologized to me, that’s when he admitted to me he did not have respect for wrestling.” “He gained all kinds of respect.”
