I showed them that if I scratched and crawled, it didn’t matter how many nights I slept on the floor I showed that I hold it down. I made it in this industry and I made it rich. I kept this hair and beard to remind me of my humble beginnings. To remind me of those times when I had nothing.
Duke Hudson, you took all of that away from me. You humiliated me. You embarrassed me. Where you messed up is that you made me angry. Duke Hudson, I want you to come to this ring because I am done talking.

At War Games, I’m going to take the rest (as he shows his souvenir from last week’s haircut)
