ESPN.com boxing writer Dan Rafael has a new article online featuring quotes from Mike Tyson. Tyson says he is “very ecstatic” about being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame this weekend. Below are the highlights from the article:
“They all want to go to the WWE Hall of Fame event,” Tyson said. “We all love wrestling. It’s like a soap opera for men. … When I give my speech, you won’t have to worry about me breaking down and crying at that one like I did at the boxing Hall of Fame. You’ll hear every sentence loud and crackling and clear. This one goes straight to my ego. It’s like, ‘I’m so cool.’ This is going to be fun. I’m just very ecstatic about it. It’s a very big honor to me.”
“I just loved doing it and I really appreciated Vince McMahon,” Tyson said. “He knew how to get me when times were hard. Usually when times are hard, everyone knows how to run away from you, but he came to get me and I am extremely grateful. This is real and I am not just sucking up. I don’t want to kiss no a–, but I don’t know where I would have been without WWE at that particular time in my life.”
