Wrestling Slogan: Do or Die
Remarkable wrestling sayings from popular wrestlers
Who doesn’t know John Cena? The Rock? Or The Undertaker? They are just three of pro wrestling’s hallowed superstars that even their words stay remarkable until now. Wrestling is a sport that fires up its fans for the revelry and grace inside the ring and for the hyped-up wrestling slogans they throw around which make millions of stocks in the market.
These wrestling sayings by the greatest wrestlers give inspiration and motivation to their viewers. John Cena once said, “A lot of stuff that I say doesn’t even make TV because it gets cut out. So if you’re at the live events you get to hear what I have to say, but if you’re watching on TV, you’re only getting about 50% of it.” This saying makes the viewers realize that not everything they see on television is the whole story.
Let’s take a look back at some famous wrestling quotes by some wrestling superstars. According to some wrestlers, in wrestling, there are no losers but only winners and learners. Dan Gable, an American Olympian wrestler, stated that wrestling is a sport that outlast any other sport. It teaches them self-control and pride because they cannot win without their pride. As what Rulon Gardner, an American Greco-Roman wrestler said, “Every day I turned a ‘you can’t’ into a ‘you can.’”
Wrestling helps build confidence and strength of a person. Standing on the mat is just the wrestler itself. Once they play the game, according to Gary Dierks—a wrestling coach—the things that matters in wrestling are “teeth and testicles. Just keep fighting and stop complaining.”
So here are other motivational wrestling quotes to inspire people to do their best to win the game. Carl Albert defined wrestling as a sport that “many boys turned into and men into leaders.” He added that through this sport, position or rank didn’t matter. In short, life is not about the status, but it is about facing fears and conquering them. Remember, the saying “Hard work pays off, dreams come true. Bad times don’t last, but bad guys do” by Scott Hall and “Gold medals aren’t really made of gold. They’re made of sweat, determination, and a hard-to-find alloy called guts” as said by Dan Gable.
Wrestling is a game that can push a person beyond their limits and motivates people to fight their own game—a battle of not just the body and strength but also the mind.
