"First of all, I would like to thank the many, many fans throughout this country that wrote cards and letters to Dusty Rhodes "The American Dream" while I was down. Secondly, I want to thank Jim Crockett Promotions for waiting and taking the time because I know how important it was. Starrcade 1985. It is to the wrestling fans. It is to Jim Crockett Promotions. And Dusty Rhodes "The American Dream" With that wait, got what I wanted.
Ric Flair, the world's heavyweight champion. I don't have to say a lot more about the way I feel about Ric Flair. No respect. No honor! There is no honor among thieves in the first place! He put...hard times on Dusty Rhodes and his family! You don't know what hard times are, daddy! Hard times are when the textile workers around this country are out of work! They got four or five kids and can't pay their wages, can't buy their food!
Hard times are when the auto workers are out of work and they tell them "Go home". And hard times are when a man has worked at a job for thirty years. THIRTY years! They give him watch, kick him in the butt, and say "Hey, a computer took your place, daddy!" That's hard times! That's hard times. And Ric Flair, you put hard times on this country by taking Dusty Rhodes out. That's hard times and we all have had hard times together.
And I admit I don't look like the athlete of the day is supposed to look. My belly is a little big. My hiney is just a little big, but brother, I am bad and they know I'm bad. And there were two bad people. One was John Wayne and he's dead, brother. And the other one is right here. "Nature Boy" Ric Flair. The world's heavyweight title belongs to these people. I'm going to reach out right now. I want you at home to know. My hand is touching your hand for this gathering of the biggest body of people in this country, in this universe, all over the world reaching out because the love that was given me and this time, I will re-pay you now because I will be the next world's heavyweight champion of this hard times' blues. Dusty Rhodes' tour '85.
And Ric Flair. "Nature Boy". Let me leave you with this. One way to hurt Ric Flair is to take what he cherishes more than anything in the world. That's the world's heavyweight title. I'm going to take it. I've been there twice. This time when I take it, daddy, I'm going to take it for you. Let's gather for it. Don't let me down now because I came back...for you. For that man up there who died ten, twelve years ago who never got the opportunity to see a real world's heavyweight champion. I'm proud of you and thank God I have you. I love you. Love you!"

“He said, ‘I’m flying off like an eagle off the top rope. I’m going to fly like a bird. I’m flying like an eagle, Terry … and when you go down, 1-2-3, they’re going to shower me with flowers.”
“I like Stephanie, … She reminds me of Saphire a little.”
“I thought coming in we needed to take eight of the 14 matches. Unfortunately I was right. They were able to get the extra bonus points in a few more matches.”
“I”m gonna rip off his head and dance down his tonsils.”
“I’m thankful for my POLKADOTS!”
“I’ve dined with Kings and Queens, and slept in alleys and eaten Pork ‘n’ Beans.”
“Long Distance Information, give me Memphis, Tennessee. Tully Blanchard, you’d better phone your match in, Jack.”
“Ole Anderson! Layin’ down could not take me out with a steel toed boot! Could not put me away with a steel toed boot! And I’m gonna say it right now and get it through your head… BOTH OF YA (Ole Anderson and Ivan Koloff) THIS THANG WILL NEVER BE OVAAAAAAAAAAAAAA’!!”
“Personally, I think SmackDown! has to be a little spicier than it is, a little more electrifying than it is. It’s got great athletes and they’ve got great action, they’ve done some tremendous stuff, but I want it to knock you off the couch when it opens up. And I think we as a group have the ability to do that.”
“Ric Flair, the stratosphere is reserved for you and me.”
“The man of the hour, the man with the power. I am the hit-maker, the record-breaker. I got style and grace, a pretty face. I’ll make your back crack, your liver quiver. If you ain’t into this match, you’re at the wrong address. Superstar, when the other wrestlers are smilin’ and jokin, The Dream be, WOO!, cookin’ and smokin’.”
“The results can be stunning.”
“They got the plunder out now.”
“Those guys are going hard and eliminating mistakes. They aren’t making the mistakes in the first ten or last ten seconds of matches. Each time out we’re looking a little sharper.”
“You can beat mah prices- but you cant beat mah meat.”
