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. But 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 #3 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.
