The 10 Greatest Sayings in WWE History
The world of wrestling has produced some very talented wrestlers both in the ring and on the microphone.
The best wrestlers in the history of the WWE were usually the ones who had the best sayings on the microphone. Some wrestlers were known for their catchphrases they said in their promos.
There have been plenty of great quotes made by these wrestlers, but these are the 10 most notorious sayings in WWE history.
Let's get to it.
10. You're Firrrrrred!
Is there a worse way to be let go from the WWE than to hear those two words in Vincent Kennedy McMahon's voice?
There is absolutely nothing worse.
9. Everybody's Got a Price
Ted DiBiase was the richest man in WWE history, sorry JBL. DiBiase had the money to pay his way into winning championships and power.
Some would resist DiBiase's money and bribes, but even he knew that everybody had a price. Which ended up being true, no one was ever able to resist DiBiase's money.
In what started out as something that was supposed to gain a lot of heat from the fans, the "Yes!" chants became the torch that lit up Daniel Bryan's worldwide fame.
If you are a wrestling fan or have been around any wrestling fan or event, you have likely heard the chants over and over again.
This is something that will not go away for a very long time, especially because Bryan's rise to superstardom has just begun in the WWE.
This may not be considered "history," because it's new, but it will definitely go down as one of the most notorious sayings in the history of the WWE.
When the Undertaker took the microphone and told his opponents that they will "Rest in Peace," it was usually true.
As he told his opponents to rest in peace he rolled his eyes back and drew fear in the hearts of all his opponents. No other saying on this list was as threatening as the "Dead Man's."
6. If Ya Smell What the Rock Is Cooking?
Speaking of a wrestler's quote leading off his entrance music, we have the Rock with one of his most famous quotes.
Whether the Rock ended a speech by saying "If Ya Smell what the Rock is Cooking" or began one, it was always exciting to hear.
Throughout his illustrious career, the Rock made sure everyone smelt what he was cooking. Whether it was the pie for the ladies or the beating he was going to deliver to his opponents, the Rock always made sure to serve up extra of what he was cooking.
5. It Doesn't Matter What Your Name Is
What do you think of having two Rock quotes in a top 10 list? It doesn't really matter what you think about it.
The Rock was the greatest emcee in wrestling history, so it should come as no surprise if he is in the top 10 twice.
4. The Best There Is, The Best There Was and The Best There Ever Will Be

Before CM Punk and Chris Jericho were arguing over who the best in the world was, Bret Hart already told the world that he was the best there is, the best there was and the best there ever will be.
It's true. Hart was an incredibly skilled technical wrestler in the WWE who never lacked charisma or passion for what he did.
Hart was truly one of the best of all time, but I don't think he was the best of all time.
3. Whatcha Gonna Do, Brother, When Hulkamania Runs Wild on You?

Was there anything more memorable than hearing Hulk Hogan run around the ring then point the finger in his opponent's face and say, "whatcha gonna do, brother, when Hulkamania runs wild on you?"
Hogan is considered the biggest star in wrestling history and the biggest star had one of the most memorable sayings in WWE history.
2. To Be the Man, WOOO, You Gotta Beat the Man
The greatest heel of all time and arguably the greatest all-around wrestler in WWE history.
He was an incredible heel, a great face, incredibly talented with his skill in the ring, and he was also great on the microphone.
Of course the "WOO" chants is the best wrestling stadium chant in the history of the sport, but nothing was more meaningful then when Flair would tell his opponents, "To be the man, WOO, you gotta beat the man."
There is so much meaning in such a short sentence, and Flair made sure everyone realized it.
This is a quote you will always hear as a wrestling fan and even outside of the programming.
1. Austin 3:16 Says I Just Whipped Your A**
The greatest saying of all time in wrestling history is the one that was uttered by arguably the greatest man in wrestling, Stone Cold Steve Austin.
After he won the King of the Ring against Jake "The Snake" Roberts, Austin took the microphone and the promo heard around the world. This promo is what began the rise of Austin in the world of wrestling.
If you have not seen this promo yet, you are likely a new fan to wrestling or you must have forgotten. I highly recommend you watch this classic moment in WWE history now.
