On Jake Roberts' WWE Hall of Fame Induction: "It was earned. I'm so happy that my brother finally got it. It's something that should have happened, probably, a long time ago. I can understand both sides of the story, but it should have happened a long time ago. When I was in [the] WWF, he was like the number three guy there on top. It was Hogan, Savage, and Jake. He's my brother, and yes I may be biased, but the guy is phenomenal. He has a mind like no other for this wrestling business. No matter what any problems [he had] - this, that, or the other - that you might travel through on your journey, you still need your props. You still deserve your respect."
On His Own Highs and Lows: "One night I came back from the ring and Paul Ellering was sitting there. He was watching my match through the curtain. I come up the steps and he goes, 'Sam, do you know why I love watching your matches?' And I said, 'No.' And he said, 'Because you go that one step further.' I lost that somewhere along the way ... I don't know if I got lost in my addiction after I got injured. I lost that somewhere along the way and I became complacent. I became comfortable with just doing enough to get by. It took those years of incarceration that I spent to get that back in myself."
