"I live my life vicariously through my daughter. She's doing phenomenal. She's above and beyond the legacy."

Why he misses professional wrestling:

"I'm not saying it wasn't hard, but I didn't look at it as just work. I loved it. It became a way of life for me. I loved it, and I miss it a lot now. But like I said, I really enjoy watching my daughter, and I attend a lot of events. And through my relationship with her, I stay in touch with a lot of the kids who all come out… It's been a wonderful experience."
